We will be driving about 12 hours from Southern Indiana and arriving June 1st. We're hoping to check out some of the Star Wars Weekends while we are there!

We haven't officially booked yet, but we'll either be staying at Pop or AoA. Hoping for some kind of room or dining pin before we book. (don't want to book to soon and let Disney think their rooms are full enough to not give out deals ) Since we are going this December as well, we will be buying an annual pass, so a room only discount would be great but free dining would be AWESOME!

Free Dining would be great!! Especially, since for our family we have 4 "Disney adults". Since you're going in December, maybe you'll get a bounce back offer in your room. You could always book the June trip with that, and then rebook it if a better offer comes out. We got one while we were there in June, but I couldn't get the DH to book another trip at the time. Hopefully, this next trip, we will be able to do more SWW stuff. We didn't this last trip b/c we hadn't planned on being there on one of the days. We were supposed to have been at Cocoa Beach, but ended up extending our WDW stay since it was raining. We figured that we could do more at WDW in the rain than at Cocoa Beach. Really the only thing we did was the create your own R2D2. I hope they do the Carbon-Freeze thing again this next year. I would love to get one done of the DSs. Oh and I also HAVE to get the R2D2 cup. I got the popcorn bucket, but by the time I found out about the cups, the pace selling them was closed for the night and it was our last night there.

Except we cheaped out for this trip and are staying off site in Celebration. Figured just the two of us...no kids...we could survive.

Had to make some cuts on this one so we could afford to go again so quickly with my boyfriend's son as soon as school gets out.

Ah, then hopefully we'll get some great discounts this next June. When we booked our June trip, we were planning on going in January 2013. I caught my DH in our locked bedroom with a laptop on his tummy laying in bed. I caught him red handed, pricing WDW trips. The discounts were so good, that my DH was the one that suggested we book for June.

We are looking at June 2013 as well. Haven't been in the parks since January 2010 after our 1st Disney cruise. We cruised again in 2011 and then took this year off from Disney--definitely not my idea. Will leave as soon as school is out. My tentative dates are June 6-14. Trying to get our friends to go with us. Might also take my nephew and great nephew who will be 4. Love to take little ones to Disney!

Not sure where we will stay. I keep checking different resorts, different room configurations and even concierge . We will be using the military room discount but probably not the military tickets as I definitely need more than 4 days in the parks!

I just figured out what day I an make the ADRs for our June trip. I'll make them on my birthday. Hopefully, that will give me some luck in getting the ones that I want.

Tiggerlover91, are you going to start a FB page for people going in June 2013?
We had one for June 2012, and it was great fun.

We are a family of four "Disney adults" too. Free dining would save us $1500!!!! Definitley need that over a room discount. Fingers crossed, prayers going up : )

I apologize for my long delay in replying and updating the trip page. Been busy student teaching! Everyone is added. If you don't see your name, it's because you said tentative and/or didn't have resorts picked out. Just let me know and I'll update.

And YES, I WILL start a facebook page. I believe if I put the link here you should be able to ask me to join. I will leave it to where anyone can be added by members, is that okay? Someone friend me on FB so I can get the page started. Can't do it til I have a member or two. PM for my FB name please!

No worries. How did the student teaching go? My DH talked me into going back to school, now that our DSs are older. I took the summer off, but start back tomorrow. This will be my first computer programming class. Up to now, I've taken just basic stuff. I'll just be paying the next 8 weeks for having the summer off, since I'll have 2 classes (which I'm not used to). I usually only take 1 class per 8 week session. I sent you a PM about the FB stuff.
