2013 Planning thread

Okay .... thinking of 2013. I have a cruise on the Wonder out of Miami on March 11th, but I'm leaning towards any free dining offer in early March or February. Any theories on 2013? This is your thread!

Attention ted in halifax

We are going on the fantasy march 2 2013. my last two trips to orlando ive banked vacation days and driven to bangor and portland. this may not be an option this time. My boss is planning retirement thus I am actively looking for a new job. Thus the quickist in and out is priority. I live in moncton. Have you ever seen 900 return for 2 people out of moncton going to orlando. when does air canada typically put on sales. is it predictable or just whenever. all help greatfully accepted.

2013 planning here as well

We are heading to WDW for our third trip in August 2013. This time we will stay 14 days. We are considering buying into a DVC. It would be great to get free dining during our 14 days of celebration. This is going to be our tenth anniversary and my 40th birthday extravaganza. DH has suggested deluxe dining, maybe a fireworks cruise. So excited to be planning this one.

Early March 2013

Looking to fly from Detroit early first week in March. I hope the tradition of free dining will continue. Do you think they will offer the "Great Canadian" discount? I am ready to book! Bring on the offers!! Looking for some pixie dust!

We also have Fantasy Eastern cruise booked for Mar 9th. This will be our 4th cruise with DCL (did a b2b Dream cruise last August and will be on the Fantasy this Aug). We are staying at DVC resort the week before and using DCL transfers to the port and back to the airport. I'm really excited about one of the ports - San Juan.

I booked our direct flight to MCO with WJ and it's much more expensive than last year - same time. I was going to book return but WJ is too early so I'm still shopping for flights.

We are also planning to skip WDW for our August 2013 and go to California to visit DL, US, SW and SD zoo. We're quite excited since it's our first time in California.

I'm in constant planning mode....I love it!

Ted, not sure about a shuttle yet, if I get a good deal on a car rental I will keep the car and park at the port.

Even though we have been back less than a month, we are looking to head back to the WDW next May for 10 days. Likely we will stay at CBR or maybe Beach Club.

Hoping to take the kids back in August of 2013. It would be great if they offered fd to us a little earlier than usual the same as they did a couple years ago.

My kids are at the age where I don't want to pull them from school and I can't afford the busy times when school is out. I also don't trust our Canadian winter weather to rely that I would get out of here without a snow storm in the winter. That means I'm pretty much limited to the end of summer.

I would really like to be able to go in late spring, April or May but as I said, can't pull the kids out of school and it is more expensive.

Good luck to all of us.

Trying to convince the hubby that we should hit Disneyland Paris in July of 2013 while we are in Europe next year. Right now he doesn't want to hear it. I think I should wait until we return from our trip in a few weeks before I start bugging him about more Disney.
