We've actually been quite tempted by the Free Dining offer.

I really want to stay in a Royal Room at POR but when I mention it to DH I get the "but it's not AKL" face. Lol.

Guess I'll have to wait and see. And maybe sneakily get some nice POR photos in his line of vision between now and then.

I'm also very tempted by the free DDP - but if we use the money for another trip, it would push our DFTW back another year or so, so not sure if it's worth it!?

We will definately be going in 2014 It is my Dad's 50th in the April so will hopefully doing something special to celebrate. Not sure if we will be going for his birthday (depends when easter falls i guess as we like to avoid that).

Im hoping to book a 7 night eastern cruise on the Fantasy but as we have another baby on the way not sure if my budget will stretch to that.

From what I have read easter is defo the time to avoid! YAY to another 2014er
Congratulations hope mummy and baby are doing well, how long do you have until your bundle of joy arrives??
Ive started to cut out takeaway coffee.....might sound silly but am saving quite a bit per week now by doing that on top of my weekly "Disney dream fund" , maybe something like that might make the cruise within reach?

Thank you! Baby is due 1st of October

We definately have a few areas where we can cut back. I just wish Disney would announce their cruise prices for 2014 so i can get a good idea of how much they would be. Im just too impatient

Call me crazy, but as I was driving along today it popped into my mind that potentially TWO YEARS today, we'll be off to WDW I think I need therapy...

Count us in too. After this years trip we most likely won't be going next year and will wait for 2014 Not sure when in 2014 yet though.

I'm not officially planning yet but it is more than likely we will be going back in 2014 as our DVC points will have built up again by then. If we do go it will be March/April as usual and we will be at Kidani Village.

We are hoping to go for New Year 2013/4 and then again at the end of September 2014. Would like to get a couple of nights at the Grand Floridan Villas or maybe Bay Lake Towers but otherwise our beloved Saratoga Springs Resort/Treehouses. Been just over a year since we were there (same time as you I recall) so a long time to wait. Looking forward to seeing the new Fantasyland amongst other things

Hmm, now I'm tempted to plan a quickie break for me and OH minus the kids in 2014

So much cheaper as a couple for a week than as a family of 6 for 2 weeks!!

Well what do you think the rest of us are doing here? This is the best group support you'll find

And almost the same price for a family of four (if 2 are kids) as it is for a single parent with one child

But it hasn't stopped me yet!

well after my husband calling me up the other day from work, all excited as he'd been working out when we can next afford to go- 2016!
Anyway he's been reworking things and weve now decided on 2014

It will be 10 years since our wedding at WDW and its my 40th then

cant wait to get planning.
We may not even stay at our usual hotel, perhaps stay at one of the Epcot resort hotels. I have no clue which one though

Heres to 2014

Hi all

While I'm currently planning 2013, if funds don't allow it then we may have to push back to 2014 so I may be joining you all! Anyway, the reason I posted is I couldn't resist making a ticker for our rough dates next year after seeing some of you here with your 2014 tickers

Mine doesn't seem so long in comparison
