Also word of warning, turn down your volume at around 1 min 30 sec when my niece screams the preteen blood curdling scream.
It went over pretty well, they took a few minutes to catch on that we weren't talking about a trip next year, but then they got pretty excited. But even when they seemed to get it the ability to do math seemed to escape them when trying to figure out how many days we were going for.

Please excuse my shirtless LO running around, for some reason he refused to wear his shirt yesterday.

Woo hoo!!Our 7 month window rolled around so we could switch from our home resort to where we really wanted to stay. Now we're booked for a grandvilla at BLT for the 18-22. I have to call back on the 22nd for the second part of our stay, hoping for BWV for those dates.

Crossing my fingers that January park hours are released today too.

Since we are at the 6.5 window for those of us going in early January, has anyone seen the January 2013 schedule. I am anxiously awaiting to start my next phase of planning.

Is there more to come from the calendar, or can't I read the EMHs? But this is start to see the first week will have longer hours than the second week of January.

It's basically the rough draft... it'll be updated. No worries, hours will be extended on some days, and EMH will be added. These are are not final version.

Outside of seeing that they are planning on having Fantasmic every night, there isn't muc I can use from that calendar because it doesn't like who has extra magic hours. Extra Magic Hours are pretty key in deciding what park I go to when, and what park I avoid when. And the park I go to often determines when I might eat at what restaurant. If there is a night where Epcot has PM EMH, this might be the night we head to Epcot at 8pm, watch Illuminations them spend till midnight in Future World, etc.

UG predicted the hours based on past years and there really is not that much different. Right now, a few of the parks close about one hour sooner than they did last year. But I suspect these hours will change, too, between now and then.

Also, as for EMH, I would plan on what they have done in the past ... knowing that the could change it, but ...

I'm just glad to see both MSEP and F! showing while we are there. We missed both in 2012.

I just put the deposit down for POFQ (my favorite!) January 4th through the 10th. It will not only be my first January trip to WDW, but also my first solo trip!
