I love counting down in weeks! Makes the trip seem not so far away! We're mainly waiting and saving hard so that we can start booking. My travel agent from last year said to book flight's and accomodation in February, but we technically could book in October. When would you book? We're going to stay at the PPH, and will have delux annual passports when we go. Can we book with our AP discounts without having to activate them?

my understanding of the AP discount is that you should be able to book with the AP discount applied and then show your AP when you check in (or the confirmation slip printed out to show that you have purchased but not yet redeemed). if you don't have your AP or confirmation slip, they will charge you the full rack rate.

we are staying at desert inn & suites (4 adults, needing 3 separate beds) so we don't fit in any of the onsite accom except suites, and we can't afford those rates we are also staying at AoA when at WDW and i've just figured out we'll be in 2 x cat8a staterooms on board our DCL cruise. i have most of the details figured out (roughly, accomodation, dates, flights etc) but i need a JOB first before i can even think of booking anything

maybe your TA knows that discounts come out in feb?? we could probably book our flights as soon as they release the dates for the whole of september, but we'll probably wait until feb/march when the promo rates come out and we can get bne-lax for around 1200 or less return. right now the dates in september on vaustralia are showing for 1200 each way

good luck with your planning. i also love counting down in weeks, but since we're on one income at the moment and really struggling to keep money in the bank, i'm kinda glad it's a while away

Add me, add me, add me!!!

Most likely the first two weeks of September for us, although it could be weeks 2 and 3. We won't know until January. We're going to Vegas for a friends wedding (4 or 5 days) and at least a week in Disneyland

We're a family of five as well and will be looking at the Desert Inn and Suites too. The boys will be 2, 4 and 6

I can't wait to start booking! I've pretty much sorted the dates and where we are going to stay. Just have to wait for the time to roll around where we are ABLE to book. Still can't see airfares for next October yet Don't they know im trying to plan a holiday?!? I'm still trying to decide on what ADR's to book. I know that I want to do a few character meals, but we're also planning on being in the parks at opening, and don't want to waste precious low crowd time on breakfast. I think we might book the latest sitting as possible and have more of an 'early lunch' than a breakfast

I am slightly jealous of all of you who are already planning for next year, we are hoping to do a very short trip over for the nationals but it will be a see what the tax return brings year not really sure how i feel about that but we have to pay for a huge chunk of our 2015 Gallopolli cruise next year actually we have to have 3/4s of it paid for by Sept so i guess i should be happy with that and NZ in June. Happy planning to you all

Add me!!

So far we have booked:

15 Sep Freedom of the Seas cruise

22 Sep POR 11 nights

Need to add a week in Anaheim/San Diego but dates will depend on flights. Unsure if it will be before the cruise or after WDW.
