Ok, I am thinking someone here will know this......as people are getting pin codes, they are blocking April through the 21st. Arent the crowds supposed to die off by the second week? we are booked 15th-25th and now thinking I may have messed up. Anyone have any idea of why? Is there something I dont know? I find it strange that they include almost all of March though Dont care if I get the discount, just dont want crowds to be bad.

They are supposed to and I think they'll end up adding those dates. Although, even if a week is supposed to be "low crowds" (in the grand scheme of things), if a lot of rooms happen to have been already booked, then they have no reason to put out a discount. So all us earlybirds who book at the first possible minute always run the risk of possibly shooting ourselves in the foot as far as discounts go.
All that being said -- I'm pretty confident they'll eventually put out something for that time period.

I'm in for April 20-27th! YAY!!

We're staying at Pop Century from 4/20-4/24 and AoA LM from 424-4/27.

My 8yo son and I compromised. I wanted to stay at AoA LM, but he wasn't thrilled with the Little Mermaid rooms.

It will be 7 of us, because we have dh and I and our 3 kids plus my mom and dad. We're getting two rooms. I can't remember - I ask for connecting rooms not adjoining rooms, right?

*sigh*

Same as last trip.... I keep trying to talk to DH about it - show him the DCL DVDs or stuff on the website; Asking his opinion on character meals or port excursions; Want to show him the video/pics of how awesome AoA looks -- doesn't want to see or talk about ANY of it. He says he wants to be surprised. The kids don't know we're going so can't really talk to them about specifics......Who am I going to talk to for the next 6 months???

Hey all!

I know I haven't posted much here but the trip has been on my mind constantly! LOL

We may see some changes to our trip though, most notably that it may not be in April at all. We're still moving forward with that being the plan, but depending on how a few things go in our personal lives, we may push our anniversary trip back to October and turn it into a bday trip for him. Still gonna make ADRs for our dates but we're going to come to a final decision by the holidays.

Soo, hopefully we can make April because I really wanted to experience the Flower & Garden Festival but if it changes to October, then I guess we should get to experience Food & Wine!

I hope everyone else's planning is going well.

My DH is the best man in the whole wide world!!!!!!!

So I have been dying to see the new Fantasyland - and following every aerial photo, update, etc. since 2011! I was SUPER excited to see that almost all of Fantasyland will be openning Dec. 6th, 2012! I told him all about it and how I couldn't wait to see photos and everything!

So, he goes and books a cruise out of Baltimore, that has a first port stop in - you guessed it - Port Canaveral and he booked a one day excursion to the Magic Kingdom - on Dec. 12th, 2012!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!

I get to see Fantasyland just after it opens!!! I PROMISE to post photos!!!

I think I need a second Ticker now! lol

Just had to share - he loves me and obviously supports my Disney habit!!! My mom and I figured it out, I have been to WDW 17 times starting when I was 10 years old! Add December 1 day trip and upcoming April trip and I am almost to the 20 mark!!!

Yay! That's so exciting!!! Only part of it was open during our trip in July. Storybook Circus is really cute....I'll have to post some of the covert pics I took of what was going on behind the fence....

Woah! Does pin = discount? How do you check? Do you just call Dis reservation?
