We booked at 499 days out. When we reached the year mark it was a celebration for us. Around midnight we also mentioned our trip is this year. It feels great!

We are going 12/6-12/12 staying at Pop again and I can't wait!!

We went in October 2012 as a send off for my husband before he left for Afghanistan and now planning a welcome back vacation in December! I am SUPER excited to being going during Christmas!

My dates are flexible and I am going to wait until the discounts come out military or regular to decided on the actual date since some have said Pop Warner may cause a lack of discounts.

I would tell my wife, but she's a Disney hater...so I kept it to myself.

I knew I'd find a thread already created for our upcoming trip to WDW in December 2013. I love Disney fans!!! We're staying at Fort Wilderness and would love to find other families staying with us. We're already planning how to decorate our cabin and my parents, who are camping, have begun to collect decorations for their site. So fun. Have you seen the YouTube videos of some of the campsites during holiday times? Crazy. I love it.

I've been thinking I might start a secret stash at home to start storing things for our trip as I find them on sale etc. We are probably staying in a timeshare (brother is letting us use his, just have to pay transfer fee) as long as it's available...so laundry tablets sound like a smart idea.

I feel like budget wise it will be better if I pick up things along the way, rather than try and do it all in November. I say I have to have it as a secret stash because my husband will think I have lost my mind if he sees it. He'll like it in December when we have very little if anything to pick up pre trip...but if he found it now 11 months out he'd think about sending me off to the loony bin.

I am almost sure we are getting two rooms at AsMo, but then I see pictures of the Christmas decorations at Ft. W and I go back on the fence! It looks like so much fun. Have you stayed there during Christmas season before? Just curious when the people start setting up their personal Christmas decorations.

I have also started a secret stash Well, maybe not so secret. My husband knows I have already bought stuff for December and he just rolls his eyes He thinks I am crazy, but I say I am just being prepared! LOL
Now is the time to get all the Christmasy stuff at a deal

I have a Disney box that I keep in an accessible place. I keep several things in there that we use just for Disney trips (battery operated stroller lights for example). I just spotted some adorable Princess shirts that I'm going to pick up in what I hope will be my daughter's size in 11 months!

Going back to The World the week before Christmas, tough finding time as my son plays travel hockey!! But, my DH finally gave in as my DD (7) kept talking about the fact that this time she will be able to ride a lot of the rides. The last time we went she was 5 and my DS was 8. Still flip flopping on where to stay. We have always only gone to BC, but have been really thinking about POR. I love being close to Epcot, but I have heard so many good things about the Riverside Food Court!! Meeting with my wonderful friend who is also an outside Dis Travel agent to talk about our stay next week once the kids are back in school next week!! She is the one who turned me onto DisBoards, and wow is all I can say!! I can't get enough!!

Just bought stickers and paper to make Disney Spending money banks for my DS and DD, AND myself and DH!!! Have to take her to DS's hockey practice tomorrow so now we have something to do!! Told my DH I am putting away $40 every two weeks until we leave to save up our spending money!! Reading the DisBoards is making me giddy!! But, still trying to decide where to stay POR or BC?!?!?

Have you always stayed at BC? Maybe show your kids the pics online and see if they have a preference?
