There ya go!!!

I'm also now bringing one more with me, DS's BF is going with us, which is great because she will make sure to keep his butt in line! He wanted to bring a friend and she was the only one I would approve, LOL.

Are y'all planning on letting the two of them go off by themselves? I'm sure he'll love having a friend that is his age with him.

Yeah, he'll be 17 and she'll be a week away from her 18th bday. We'll eat together and meet up, but they're going to want to do things that the littles arent, so it makes it a lot less stressful

Me!

We'll most like go January 2nd until the 6th. I'm a teacher, and we have a late Christmas break this year. This will be our first trip to Disney as a family! I went as a kid, and went once to Epcot/Pleasure Island in college. I have a dd who will be five at the time, a ds who will be seven, and a ds who will be two right on the 2nd!!!!

The CBR is a strong contender (still reading and learning!!!), but we haven't booked anything officially yet.

& added I went ahead and put the CBR as your resort. If you change it, just let me know.
Congrats on your first family trip!! My DS were 5 & 7 on their first trip and we had a blast!! We also stayed at the CBR on that trip. The boys loved it enough that they wanted to move in. Make sure to get them first time buttons.

Headed to WDW in Jan 2013!

Hi My family DS 9, DD 13, DH and myself are taking a loooong awaited and well deserved trip to WDW. Without dragging everyone down (too much), the short of it is, I am in the process of healing from a "medication mistake" (Dr prescribed a med that was not necessary and nearly destroyed me). It's been a very long haul - 15 months so far. I'm ten months off the med and hoping to be fully recovered by Jan 2013 (if not sooner *crossing fingers*). We're taking our trip to celebrate our family and move on. It will be fantastic! So we're really hoping to be able to pull off a stay at GF Thanks for the thread! Can't wait for this trip

For now I have you in the undecided until your dates picked. I hope you get to stay at the GF. It sounds like your family really deserves it. Also, don't worry about "dragging us down". This thread is to not only support each other in planning, but to support each others reasons for our trips. I'm so sorry your family went through that, but am glad that you are getting better. I can't think of a better place than WDW to celebrate you being better!!

Also, I noticed your in CO. My favorite place, other than WDW, is in the northern part of your beautiful state. It's Estes Park, CO. I would love to be up there at the end of September for Elk Fest.

Well, I'm off to do some school work and then to do some number crunching on FD. If they offer FD for January, we will still upgrade to the DlxDDP. I want to see if it would be cheaper to stay at the WL and upgrade to the DlxDDP than staying at the PC and upgrading to the DlxDDP. I hope it is, b/c that is where I would like to really stay. Well there or a MKV room at the CR.
