Thanks for the heads up. We were going to drive but because of your note I checked out united flights out of Buffalo for our trip and for the four of us the flights are only $1,080 total after taxes and fees.

Looks like we are now spring travelers...used to always do Fall. The Fall has gotten too busy with cheer competitions and DHs job, so now watching for May or early June discounts. It's a bummer b/c I so LOVE MNSSHP

Nice!! I would totally grab that!!!
With price of gas..... time to drive.... posibly having to stop at hotel halfway.... (we just can't handle a 16 hour drive! )
That is a pretty good price!

the cost out of Cleveland is still holding at $343.... too high.... hoping it drops soon.

Jumping on the bandwagon! Planning on a trip for either the end of April or beginning of May! This will be our first time going in the spring! We usually go the end of summer or Oct. So don't know how it is in WDW in the Spring!

Does anyone know which weekends in May are going to be the Star Wars weekends for 2013. Is it only the 2 weekends?
May 17, 18, 19 and May 24, 25, 26 ?

I'm so excited for you guys! I wish you could plan it for a little later in May so we could finally meet.

I know Lisa, thanks!!! I'm so excited!!! This is such an unexpected trip!!!! Would have loved to be able to meet you. But I know the later in May, the hotter it is down there. And with two little ones & a husband who hates the heat, we are trying to avoid going when it is too hot! We haven't actually booked the trip yet though. We won't be doing that till about the end of November, beginning of December. However, I am planning away!! Looking forward to making our ADRs as soon as I can!!! Can't wait to to some of the new Fantasyland Expansion! We haven't been since our Honeymoon in Oct. 2008, so we (well me mostly) are going through Disney World Withdrawal!! The actual dates we are probably going are April 30 - May 5! Celebrating all our Birthdays!!! More so mine & DHs! (Mine is 5/18, DH is 4/29, the kids are earlier in the year, DD 1/19 & DS 3/8) But we are making it a big family Birthday celebration!!!!

It looks like this year (according to mouse savers.com) the only GP discount for May was released 11/30/11 and was a 5-30% off room only. Is that all we can hope for? We are traditionally Fall travelers so I haven't paid much attn to spring discounts in the past.

We went May 2012 with 30% off room at WL which was released mid Feb so it seems as though they opened up more rooms

subscribing!

We're looking at a late May/early June trip (after DD is out of college for the summer and our Chinese exchange students head home for the summer).

I've been pushing this trip around for over a year - keep shifting the dates back to accompdate time/money. Started as a GirlzOnly with DD, and now I think it's DH, DD & me, and I may offer a spot to one of DD's friends if they can come so we're not an odd number. Or maybe I'll see if the Chinese Daughters want to come along before heading home (but that still leaves us with 5 (someone always has to ride alone!).

May try combining it with a trip to Universal - want to see the Harry Potter stuff!

Always ;-)

Hi! I don't think the official dates have been released, but going off of previous years - those dates should be the May dates. We will be there for the 5/31-6/2 dates! Can't wait!!!!!!
