Only 13 days to go, and still I don't know what to pack - no clear forecast yet, still have to wait one more week.

22 days for us, and I'm questioning my sanity, since I have to sing on Christmas Eve, host family of 13 for sit down dinner Christmas Day, host 50 or so for my dad's 75th birthday on New Year's Day. Not sure when I am going to pack!!!! Or, WHAT to bring!!!

I'm surprising my wife for her 40th birthday by driving down on New Year's Day to Hilton Head, then on January 2 staying at Caribbean Beach until the 6th when we go over to OKW. All that is before we do the DVC member cruise from the 10th through the 13th!

We are driving in from Louisiana and will be there 12/30/12 through 1/5/13. We are sooo excited to be ringing in the New Year with Mickey and the gang!
where are you staying? My DH grew up in LA (Shreveport).

I wonder if there will be one more extention of hour before the trip?

Right now, I'm trying to decide on adding QSDP or not to the OKW portion of the trip Dec31-Jan4th. I'm arriving in the evening on Dec 31 and Jan 4th is my first day at universal. So that's 3 1/2 day of dining and 8 CS meals. I wasn't going to do the QSDP but I'm already planning on going to SS in the land at EPCOT, BOG in MK, and WPE in DD, that will be expensive meals. I'm also planning on going to Blizzard Beach that will probably include a cheaper meal. My goal for vacation eating almost entirely CS is to have no more than 1 hamburger, 1 "Disney Pizza" (Specialty pizza and flatbread doesn't count), and 1 chicken tenders. So, I'm probably going to be eating more expensive entree's most of the trip. On my last trip, the parks closed early so I traveled back to Disney after my first day at Universal to use my last CS credit.
Love that you are doing a solo trip! I used to add on days whenever I had a business trip in Tampa!!

I'm scared!

Never been in January before! Is it cold? Are the hours really short? Will it be impossible to get ADRS this late?
Let me know your dates and resort and I'll add it.

The 13th is the full marathon - I was planning Epcot that day but now wondering what we should do. I have to attend a conference 15-18th so need to make best use of my free days. Any suggestions?
I'm not worried about the marathons...January is nothing like when we just went in July!!

Wow! That is a lot of fun! If you give me your dates for OKW and cruise, I can add them if you wish. FYI, we are doing the Jan 17 Dream cruise, so keep everything in 'tip top shape' for us!!

Joining the group! I got invited to a work training in Jan on the 8th and 9th and decided to turn my trip into a vacation since the airfare is on them! I will be there Saturday the 5th through Monday the 7th staying at Pop Century.

Is there any meet ups going on?? I will be by myself so I need friends!!!

So far the weather is looking good for January. No extreme cold like some years in the past.
