Hi! Still pretty new to the boards but thought I would pop in on here. We are headed down for our honeymoon Jan 5-17! First 10 nights at POR followed by a big splurge (for us) at AKL club level. It is both of our first trip, we are from the San Francisco area and are Disneyland annual passholders, but planning this trip has taken on a mind of its own. I'm really glad that we waited to go a few months after our wedding (we got married 10-11-12), it would have been too much to plan the wedding and the trip. Can't wait!

Also, our plans so far are

1/5- arrive, ADR at Raglan Road
1/6- ADR for lunch at Le Cellier and a late dinner at Biergarten (I think this is a little crazy, but the only way we could work the two)
1/7- ADR lunch at Sci-Fi Dine-In
1/8-Be Our Guest ADR (I made this before we were even sure we could afford to go, I can't wait !)
1/9-ADR for Rosé & Crown, hoping to snag a patio table.
1/10-no ADRs yet, planning to be in MK
1/11- Spirit of Aloha dinner
1/12- Yak and Yeti dinner ADR
1/13- planning on going to Universal for Harry Potter
1/14- no parks planned yet, my just take the day off and explore other resorts, since we will have our rental car at this point.
1/15- planning a pool day for the day we switched resorts. Read on here that some people do that and it sounded like a good idea. We also have ADR at Boma
1/16- no park plans yet, probably just hit whatever we feel we missed or want to revisit. Also, just relaxing, enjoying our savannah view.
1/17- Downtown Disney and then we head home.

Is there anything major we are missing as far as ADRs? There is so many places we want to eat. It's so hard making decisions. Especially this far out.

I'll be there the same time you are! We're going to the parks on slightly different days though. Staying at POFQ.
I also went to WDW this past January for my honeymoon and yes, it was a big pain to plan a wedding followed by a honeymoon immediately after!

Congrats on the recent wedding!! That is a date that will not be easily forgotten. Oh and I love your username. Penguins are my favorite animal on the planet, closely followed by a few others. Are y'all going to get the bride and groom Mickey ears to wear while you are there?

Will there be another adult with you or are you doing WDW with just yourself and three little kids? If you are by yourself, you are braver than I am.

I totally agree!! Also, that the power is totally restored before the weather gets too cold. I know there are still some areas without power.

I hope everyone is having as great of a weekend as we are. Even though this is a NASCAR weekend for us, which is normally anything but magical since I can see the track from my front porch. My sister is a document review lawyer and was working on a case that her firm just rented a bunch of rooms at a hotel down the street from the court house for since they were working such crazy hours. Well the trial got over sooner than they thought and the rooms had been paid for. Since the hotel wouldn't give them the money back on the days they weren't going to use, they offered us one of the rooms for the weekend. My DH didn't feel comfortable leaving the boys two nights with his parents (since his dad is having health issues again) so we just did one night. It was really nice to be out of the house for the night, and was the hotel that JKF slept in the night before his assaassination.

That was the hope when we picked the date. Penguins are my favorite animal, too! I want to get the ears but I doubt my husband will wear them. We are big Star Wars fans and I have the R2D2 ears with my Mrs. New last name and our date stitched on them.

This is our first trip to WDW and it's a huge difference than our quick trips to DL every few months. I used EasyWDW as a guide when deciding what parks to visit on which days. Plans could change.

Does anyone know when the 2013 vacation video will be released? I would love to see how they present all the new stuff from 2012. I am hoping if you order a vacation video in December you will get the 2013 video before our January trips?

We are big Star Wars fans as well. Back when our boys were little, my DH went to school on Saturdays. My boys and I would have movie marathons. One weekend it was Star Wars, then Lord of the Rings, and then Harry Potter(what ever was out at the time).

I didn't realize until after we were married, my DH agreed on our wedding date b/c it was easy for him to remember. I thought it would be cool to have a wedding near the 4th of July, and the Saturday before was the 1st. I asked my DH if that was ok, and he excitedly agreed, so we got married 07/01/1995. A year or so later, we were walking though downtown of the town I grew up in for some parade or something. I noticed a painting of Gettysburg, and at the bottom a plaque saying "The Battle of Gettysburg July 1-3 1863". I pointed to the painting and asked if that was why he agreed to the date so quickly. My DH is a huge Civil War buff, and he did agree to that date b/c he knew it would be easy for him to remember.

Your first family trip....how beyond exciting!! I wish I had known about the DIS before our first trip. Even though, I didn't know as much about planning, beyond booking the trip, it still is the most magical of all our trips.

Congrats on your recent marriage. I think it was a great idea to plan your honeymoon a few months after your wedding, it gives you something to look forward to after the dust from the wedding settles. All your ADRs look great too.

At least you don't have to worry about your DH forgetting your anniversary.

Thank you! We also both work in some form of retail so it's nice to have something to look forward to after the craziness of the holidays. And I'm glad you think the ADRs look good. I'm getting a but nervous since it was very hard to pick and choose with so many great options. I did switch the Yak and Yeti ADR to a late Ohana dinner.
