The Walt Disney World Operating Calendar for April 2013 was updated 12/14/12. I'm not sure what has changed.

For everyone wondering if April will have any discounts, I have a good clue. As this is my first visit to DW since 82, I ordered custom maps and a planning dvd. We got the personalized maps the other day and the planning dvd today. I watched the dvd and under the ticket section they have screenshots of the Disney website and at the bottom is a caption that reads "Savings for stays 1/1/13-2/13/13, 2/24/13-3/7/13, 4/7/13-5/30/13, and 8/4/13-12/12/13,"

Oh thank you. It will be mostly about the cruise on May 4th but we are doing WDW the days before so end of April leading up to the cruise.

Well it seems that after chatting online with Disney the pin code is not a discount code!

why are people posting their ADRs? It's cool to see. I'm just wondering (or maybe I just answered my own question?)

Thanks for sharing. Nice detective work! I realize you haven't gotten the dvd in a while, but can you tell how much of the dvd is new? How much New Fantasyland stuff is in there?

they go onto a master list (posted on first post) of everyone's ADRs. It's just fun to see what everyone else is doing or possibly meet up with someone who has the same time ADR as you.

Not that much. It is mentioned, but mostly there are just artist renderings of the attractions.

Not only that, if you are part of the FB group, the ADR list is by date and time so it is much easier to see if you and someone else will be eating at the same time. If you want to join the FB group, the link is in Post #1. There are several docs there that any of us can add or update our information.

The post you quoted was actually mine. I think the other user must have copy and posted it by mistake. This was my first dvd, so I am unsure of new or old footage. I will say this much though, I paused the footage when the dates showed and the screenshot showed a picture of Cinderella kneeling toward a little girl. The date selector for booking shows 9/14/13-9/17/13 so I think it was new. There was also a quick screenshot of dining plan options. The quick and plus dining showed "savings of 15%" and the platinum showed 20% savings. The plus also had the option to add wine to your meal. The quick service plan also shows 2 snacks and 2 quick service meals per night, but the plus only shows 1 snack. I do not know if this is an old screenshot or upcoming promotions so I was hesitant of posting it.

Airfare drama ahead --

so I've dragged my butt on booking our flights down just b/c I've been preoccupied with the holidays and such, I figured I'd do it after. All of a sudden the other day my flight (that hasn't moved in months) went from $358 to $428 which isn't a huge amount except the bump up in points (20k to 25k) means I only had enough points to cover 2 tickets vs. 3. So instead of the $358 I was planning to pay (for 1 ticket), I would now have to pay for 2 tickets x $428 = $860. That's a pretty big difference. (I could buy the 15k points I needed but that would have been like $375 so no bargain.) SO....... I just sucked it up and booked a 6:30 a.m. flight which means we'll have to stay overnight by the airport (Manchester) which I really didn't want to do. BUT, I guess it's not the end of the world. On the bright side, we should be at AoA by 11 a.m. (probably ready for a nap).

I know there are several people here familiar with MHT; since it's so much smaller/less busy than Logan do we not need to get there so early or do we still need to get there 1.5 hours before?

ETA: I just checked SW website. They recommend 2 hours for Boston and 90 minutes for MHT. Poop, I was hoping to be able to sleep in a little.
I'm excited to fly SW. In my many travels over the years I've NEVER flown SW
