WooHoo!!! Maybe he's finally gotten bitten by the Disney Bug!!!
Yay!!! Nothing makes a Disney trip better than when both of you are loving Disney!!

I've been learning that I really need to slow the pace of our trips down and then DH starts to enjoy it all more. Sometimes, it drives me crazy b/c I want to go, go, go but when we do, we usually end up tired, cranky and get in a tiff ... not worth it!

This past January trip was our best one yet and we relaxed, still saw a bunch of stuff and DH didn't do his Day 5 Grumpy-Dad act!

I apologize if this has already been discussed, I haven't been keeping up with the thread. Our trip starts January 4th, I can book ADRs 190 days before that, correct?

Anyone know when the park hours/rates will be out for January 2013?

I like this website to figure out when I can made ADR's. According to it, if you check into a Disney hotel on Jan 4th, you can start making your ADR's on July 8th.

Park hours for January should be released on the Disney website sometime the first week in July. BUT you can see park hours for January about two weeks earlier then that if you look at the Travel Agent site.

Right now it shows Jan 2012, but once they release Jan 2013, the link will be updated.

Rates for January will be released when they release the entire year of 2013, which in the past has been in August. But last year they released it much earlier, June.

Oh and I just wanted to mention that you can book ADR's 180 + 10 out if you stay onsite, it's a little different then 190 days out. Basically you can book your ADR's 180 days from check in day, PLUS up to 10 days for your trip.
For those who are staying offsite can only book 180days out from each day. So they have to call (or go online) 180 days out from each day of your trip, while onsite get to do it all on one day.
Hope that makes sense.

Hi all! I am so happy to find this, I thought I was crazy for planning so early!

My family and I are planning our first trip for January 2013 (12-17?) and I need all the help I can get! Lol
So my first question is, can I book my hotel now or wait for 2013 pricese come out?

We are planning on staying at the AOA Lm room (so excited) just have to wait for my work to approve my time off

Anyone else planning on stay there?

I am looking forward to talking more to my fellow January 2013 planners!

You can book now if you want. If you do, then you have to pay the cost of one nights stay at whatever resort you're staying at instead of the $200 price to book a package.

Where we stay will really depend on finances.

& added. Just let me know if you ever need to make any changes. I've been so wrapped up in making the pattern for this scarf, that I missed your post for a few days.

Nah, a year is nothing. We have a 5 day trip coming up in June. Between the last day we were at WDW, until the day we check into the Pop Century, 5 years, 7 months, and 10 days will have passed. Compared to that, a year is nothing.

many people would be happy to only go a year in between trips. I've seen countdowns in the 500-600+ day range!!

I consider myself extremely blessed!!

And really, I don't want winter to come any sooner. With as mild as this past winter was, I wonder if we're in for a doozy of a winter!

I'm just worried how bad this summer is going to be, since it was such a mild winter. A bad winter (at least what is considered a bad winter in Texas) I can deal with a lot better than a bad summer.
I have a friend that lives in Lake Havasu City, AZ and this is what she posted the other day on her FB page:


If it's like that already, what is the rest of her summer going to be like? I just couldn't live there.

wow! That's some hot temps for Az .. or anywhere.

Here in Virginia we are laughing (sadly) that we got Snow in October (which we never do), hardly any snow in Nov - Mar (when we should) but got lots of warm temps instead.

Now this week at the END of April-- it's cold. Yesterday my car temp said it was 38 degrees in the mid-morning!!! And just 2 days prior it was almost 80 degrees at the same time.

What in the world is going on??
