My friend and I are planning a trip to Disney World and a road trip in the USA for February 2013. It's never too early to start planning

I have been waiting to go back to Disney World since my honeymoon in 2008. My husband made the mistake of saying we'd go back in five years... 2013 will be five years and I've been waiting (im)patiently all this time! I'm so excited that in 2012 I'll be able to say "Next year is our Disney trip!" So. sad.

Does anyone know how far out you can actually book? Is it 364 days? Just curious!

you can not book for 2013 until August 2012.

I thought it was 364 but too bad-- I was wrong.

So in June when we return if we are offered a bounceback, it would only be through December? I was counting on it for my February 2013 trip that DH doesn't know about.

Room-only can be booked up to 500 days out. But the price will not be guaranteed until the rates are published.

We always go in January, every other year. We go around the 27-Feb. 2 or 3. It's a great time of year to go. Crowds have always been low. In 2009, it was COLD..I mean in the 40's cold, we had to dress in layers but we still had a great time. In 2011, it was warm, 70's and we went swimming at night! We love this time of year and we actually avoid going when they have MVMCP, because we like to stay at MK until late and see Wishes a whole bunch of times.....we don't want to be kicked out at 7pm. Planning to book in August, or as soon as Free dining is hopefully announced for our dates, and then the ADR's will begin. This will be our first trip with the Reg. DDP, we always did QS DDP because our kids were so small, but they will finally be old enough to enjoy a TS meal everyday. Whoohoo!!!!!! I can't wait. I'm so excited and wish it was this January but that's life...we agreed every other year, so we can save up and do other vacations in between.

We are planning for April 2013! Yes, it's far away, but we can't do Disney every year so I can only look forward to it every few years

Depends who you are booking with.
We're travelling from the UK and we were told by the agent that we would be able to book from April 2012.

dmoore718, I think you have the ideal way of doing it: every two years! Not so often that you'd tire of it (though I doubt I would even with an annual trip) and it gives you space for other trips as well. I'd love to go every two years.

Hubby and I are planning on either April or November of 2013. We had a wonderful time this past November, but I'm thinking I would like to try the end of April and see how that is. We've been in Oct, Nov, Dec and July, so I want to try another month and April seems like it would be a great month to go.

I think the end of April would be better then the begining. Easter falls on March 31 that year-
WHen is the rainy season?

End of April sounds good to me. EasyWDW had this to say about the rain in April: Generally speaking, April is one of the most pleasant times to visit the Orlando area with moderate temperatures throughout the day. Precipitation is still very low, with an 18% chance of rain on any given day.
