I didn't know you could use clubcard points for virgin holidays so that is something to def look into.

I *hope* we're in the 2014 club! I've never been before, other than a couple of days when I was travelling in 1999. I'm a single parent to 2 little girls, who will be 9 and 7 if we go at Easter time in 2014. My dad's been collecting Virgin airmiles for a few years and will probably have enough to put towards flights, although I'm shocked at how much you have to pay ontop! So hopefully my parents will be accompanying us, my dad can hire a car (as I'm a non driver), and we can hire a villa and go to lots of parks.

BUT.. they won't commit yet due to the finances involved. I'm going to start saving anyway and if they end up saying no I guess I'll just save for a bit longer and the 3 of us will go on our own and stay either onsite or on I-Drive. We wouldn't be able to do quite as much on our own, and it'd cost quite a bit more, but I've read that it's very doable and we NEED to go before they get too old to want to come with boring old mum!

We will be planing to go around October/ November 2014. We are using our DVC points in 2013, then the 2014 holiday will be a cash reservation. We will be going to AKV Kidani in 2013. We will look for the best onsite offer in 2014. each year keeps getting better and better!

i have automatically opted in with virgin to get al my clubcard points automatically changed up into air miles but once i have enough i am wondering if i transfer the rest with virgin holidays then just see what the best deal is - the thing is that obviously if i booked a package could book it earlier (we were thinking of booking it when the prices come out around november then do it as a surprise reveal for christmas to the kids )

Joining here too...

I also joined on the "going in 2013" because I'm not sure if we will do '13 or '14. We said we would go every 2 years and the last time we went was Sept 2011. But DD says we should wait 2 FULL years... So if I go with that then we will have to wait til Feb 2014, since Feb is our month to go...

We're hoping so too...fingers crossed anyway! I know my little Princess will only have just turned 2, but I don't think I can wait much longer to take her to my happy place! So, we're looking at May 2014, more than likely staying either at All Star Sports or at the new Art of Animation suites, just depends what prices we can get etc.

Either way, we'll be back - and I can't wait! I'll count the pay packets until then

awww us too we went in Sept 2011 and usually leave it 2 years between each visit, we are leaving it until 2014 to make sure all Fantasty land is ready..(and to save for an onsite property)

Weeee!

We've got quite a 2014 club going on!

We've got our hotel choices sorted I think:

1st week at the Boardwalk (my parents will be joining us and I know they'll love the BW - and on the wedding trip they only had a couple of hours in EPCOT do that'll be perfect)

Then hopefully we'll all go on a DCL cruise.

Then we'll stay on for a week at our beloved AKL - unless I can convince Jack of GF - but I can't see that happening. He loves AKL too much!

Lol.

Still not sure on May or October - depends on if Hayley gets a place on the CRP as we'll coordinate with her being there.

im thinking of a multi-centre too as it is a big kind of holiday

maybe 4 nights disney 7 nights idrive and a cruise but we may have to push it back til august for that and i am worried about turbulent flights and the humidity ( we went in may we had a few really humid days and it was unbearable like walking and breathing in gravy lol)

the only good thing is that we could go for 3 weeks woopwoop !!

I would love to stay at AKL, but not sure if funds will allow, althought DH says we should def go for it. Mind you he would go next year, which is really surprising considering right up to when we arrived at POR last year he didn't want to go and said he was only because of me making him. He soon caught the disney bug. It is hard being the sensible one this time.

I'm going 2013 in September. Haven't booked yet, but immensely planning and hoping to book soon with virgin! I know that's not quite 2014... Does that mean I can't join?? Love the buzz of planning a Disney holiday!

thestevied September 2013 is almost 2014 LOL
(Please excuse my lack of knowledge but I'm not sure how to quote from posted messages joined in 2008 but only really active the last month or so)

Just been thinking, does anyone know if there is a pattern to disney offers coming online?
As in......this week offers for 2013 with free dining have been announced.....

My question is really, will it be this time next year that offers come on stream for arrivals in 2014, should we bookmark this week next year and cross fingers in the hope of a repeat of the fantastic offers that are now open for bookings in 2013?

Hope this post makes some sense

Any answers/suggestions very much appreciated

ME TOO!!!!!!!

Literally praying that the same offer comes around for 2014!!!! To have the dining would be such a weight off my shoulders Thinking of mid June 2014 for 3 weeks with 1 or 2 weeks in CS, 2 would be if the dining was included but could only do 1 week onsite if the dining wasn't included!
I don't want to stay off site but DBF is the one crunching the numbers and also hes not so keen on spending 2 full weeks on site, and he defo wants one week at a beach resort by the coast so fingers and toes and everything crossed the offer will come back around this time next year and I can convince him otherwise and get the 2 weeks at WDW !!
2014 people bookmark April(-ish) and pray
