We were also there in Dec 2010 and were very glad for all the layers of clothing we had with us for our flight from Detroit. My avatar photo is from that trip. One day did end up warm enough for short sleeves during the day and would have been fine for shorts too. But I was still quite comfortable in slacks that took me all through the day and evening when it turned cooler and I had to add a light jacket. Last February we had sunny days with temperatures ranging from near 50 overnight up through the 70's during the daylight.

Five weeks from right now we should be sitting down eating our first Disney meal of 2013 We have a room only reservation booked through a Disney specialist TA so the only mail I expect in a couple of weeks are our ME tags. Today I began updating my packing list.

getting excited

We are spending the first 1/2 of our trip in the cabins so I have been spending the past 2 days getting food made and freezing it. So far I have 3 dozen breakfast muffins made as well as 24 breakfast burritos and some rice krispie treats individually bagged. Next on the list will be various panini sandwiches and then sloppy joes and taco meat. We will be doing our own meals while in the cabins and then on the meal plan when we move to Art of Animation. I am trying to have as much pre-made as possible so all I have to do is thaw, warm and serve.

Speaking of making food- what types of food do you take in the car?

The weather is driving me crazy too. Looking at my window right now, I can't even imagine weating short sleeves. I can't bring myself to pack summer clothes for our trip. I just have no idea what to wear! I think I'll stick with jeans, t-shirt and a sweather, so this way I can layer up or down.

I agree. I'm so stressed about it! I sooo badly want to wear shorts and dresses. I'm gonna bring like one pair of jeans just in case LOL. Ok maybe a few pairs of pants, but damn it, this is my escape from winter so I am wearing dresses if it's over 10 degrees C. All I need is a hoodie for the night and I will be good :P

I've been a few times in early Feb. There's almost always a couple days when I can wear shorts or capris - even if I have to wear a jacket as well. I wouldn't go without packing a few shorts .

Hey all! February 1 is approaching rapidly. Last week I happily added a Behind the Seeds tour on Feb 2 and Magic Behind the Steam Trains on Feb 6. I called in a number of times on 1/2, but had reached that "our systems are undergoing enhancements at this time and we are unable to view, make or change reservations" message. Reached them on 1/3 after a 50 min wait. I gave them my package reservation number, and scheduled and paid for tours, wrote down the confirmation numbers and times in my calendar.

I don't see them on, or a way to add them to, the My Disney Experience web page. I manually added the package and dining reservations, and those do show up.

Should I be concerned that the tour info doesn't show on the website? I didn't get a confirmation email either, but I definitely paid.

Anybody else doing a tour during your visit? Do you see it on the web page? Also, has anybody been able to do the early online check-in? I tried once but got a "page not available" error.

Finally starting to recover from my flu! Yippee. Cough cough hack.

We've been in Feb and been comfortable in jeans and Tshirt, little chilly w/ shorts. The first time we saw Fantasmic dh went out and got our winter coats out the van b/c it was so cold!! We were so happy to have the heat off the burning lake

I'm in the same boat. I'd like ALL reservations on my login, not just dining. I can't get Pirate League. Or Pirate Adventure connected to appear on My Disney Experience.

If you're wearing a hoodie over a dress at night then I am, too!

I have been twice in Feb...2009 & 2010...

In 2009, it was chilly in the morning and at night, but during the day all you needed was a short sleeved shirt and jeans. Hoodie or sweater for morning and at night.

In 2010, BRRRR! Layers all day! It was very cold! That was the year there was some extremely cold weather in the South, it actually snowed here in Louisiana!

I wish I knew what to pack for this trip!!

Does anyone know if you're not doing on-line check in how you make requests? Can this be on the website or do you have to call?

I actually just checked in yesterday, so you should be able to also. But there was a list that you could check off. Mine showed floor levels and views. Anything outside of that you should call and they will add a note to your reservation.


EDIT: Just saw you DON'T want to check-in online, sorry. Let me add to that, in addition to calling you can make your request when you check-in in person at the hotel also.
