The lady I talked to told me I couldn't apply my AAA discount yet, so I am still waiting to do that.

It seems that in the past, new rates and packages for the upcoming year were released online in August. Last year they were released in June.

Welcome to the thread!
The rates for 2013 are not out yet. A couple years ago I made room only reservations over a year in advance and what they have done is make your reservation with the highest 2012 rate for that resort and then when the 2013 rates come out you can call back and have them adjust that rate and apply your AAA discount. They will adjust for the new rates and you will get a new reservation paper in the mail.

Count us in! I'm excited to be able to start planning our next trip for April 11-20th, 2013, after having to take this year off. We'll be staying at AKV, if all goes well. I might add a day at the beginning or end, as this is the shortest stay we've planned in a while, but DH's work is getting stricter about when they use their vacation time, so we're limited to school vacations. (We usually go the week before or after Spring Break.) It might work out okay, though, because this trip it will just be me, DH and DD. DS is in college so he'll have to miss out on this one. This will be my first trip without him, but he's already talking about a 2015 trip as a grad present!

Off to go make my new ticker! So excited!!!

Good to know. She told me I couldn't apply my AAA discount yet but to call back in a few months. So, I guess we wait until the new rates come out and then get the discount. While 10% is at least a bit of a discount, I really hope to see a bit more.

Dh is now telling me he thinks that if the dog dies, we should go the 2nd and 3rd week of Nov. or the 1st and 2nd week of Dec. instead of waiting until April. I'm still planning April.

Count me in! Don't have dates yet, but likely the 12th-20th. Looking forward to the packages coming out this summer so I can REALLY start planning.

Actually, I may book something before the rates come out for real. I'm going to upgrade my Disney Visa before the end of this month, so I'll be getting the extra percentage back for three months...hoping the rates come out before then so I can pay it off and get the extra money back for spending money at the parks, but today I realized that if they don't, I can just book dummy dates then switch my reservations when the packages come out for 2013, right?

Ahhh, I can't wait to go back to my happy place.

Add me to the list!!! DH and I are thisclose to making the commitment to go April 12-21st of next year for school vacation. Just need to be sure a yearly trip he must take for work won't interfere. This will be our fourth time together and 3rd time with the kids. We plan to surprise them this time!!!!!

Debating renting a house offsite vs staying on property. We have never stayed on-site though and both DH and I really want to do it at least once. We are thinking of POR as they have some rooms that will fit 5 people. It will be more expensive than renting a place, but I really want to do it!!! What's a couple extra shifts at work, right??

Does anybody know if those rooms get booked up fast? If I call to book now and we have to change our plans, will I have to pay a fee to cancel or change the reservation?

Thanks!

I suggest you hop on over here: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2904701 and talk to the POR experts. They'll have all the answers you need about POR.

I think our dates will be the 13th-19th. A bit shorter than our 10 day trip was this year. It was a bit too long to be away from our Lily (toy fox terrier) other than that it was great! so 6 night and 7 day for us. Still leaning towards the Boardwalk (renting DVC points from a co worker) If not then we will try out AOA??? Waiting to see pics and hear from others that stay there soon. NO dining plan for us next time either! We will just pick out 3 TS that we want to do and just eat as we go next time. Hope to keep other April 2013 DISers company

Count me in

ok, I am officially jumping in on this thread early, even though nothing is set in stone. In fact, I only just decided 5 minutes ago that I want to do this after seeing all the new pix/video of the new AoA resort!
I originally was going to take YDD for a quick trip in Jan. or Feb. and maybe stay there, but it looks so awesome, I want all of us to go. DH is a teacher so we have to go during school vacations and Feb. is way too crowded there, so April it is. It starts Sat. the 13th next year and crowd estimates don't look too bad (7 on that saturday then goes down to 6, 5, 4s during the week, then back up to 7 for the weekend). I was just there during this past April vacation (came back monday) and we hardly waited in any lines at all (we're there at rope drop).
Now I just have to figure out how to come up with the $$ b/c I spent every last penny of our vacation fund on this past trip.

Oh, I just saw your avatar and realized you were on the April 2012 too, and a fellow M***hole (ha ha, j/k) as well.

ETA: Ha! I just saw that it edited out my word, lol. I added the 'hole' back in so you know what I'm talking about.

We'll Be There!

I can't believe I finally get to do this, but count us in too! We were originally planning our first ever trip to the World for March 2013, but we had to push it back to April. So, we'll be there April 23-May 4, 2013 instead! This is better anyway, because our first full day in the parks will be my dd's 9th birthday. (I'll never be able to top this present .)
