Happy planning to you all

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.
added if you make changes and want it updated on the main list, just let me know




happy planning everyone!!!

exactly!! i am also hoping that someone will want to travel on similar dates to us and i can organise a mini dis meet somewhere. would be so lovely to put a face to the names

is it bad that i am also simultaneously trying to plan a may 2014 trip to include dlr, nyc, wdw for sww and a western caribbean dcl cruise??

trying to make the 2014 trip an indulgent, romantic trip for 2. so far the sww and the cruise are throwing me out.. we fly in on sun, do nyc for mon, tues, wed, then do mk for thu, then sww is fri, sat, sun and then we either have a full week at wdw and the cruise departs the following sun, or else we skip the last day of sww to go on the cruise... decisions, decisions. just not sure we can afford 10 days accom at wdw in a moderate on top of the rest of the trip

Im making up a clearfile full of all of the extra cost things that you can do at Disneyland for my friend. I really want to make her first trip AMAZING! I'm going to include the character meals, W.O.C meals, tours and resturants that you need ADR's for.

At this stage we are planning on staying at the PPH so that we have the use of EMH. Because carsland has just opened and is still really busy, i'm finding it a little hard to judge weather or not EMH is worth paying the extra and staying on site for. At the moment for me it looks amazing! But I also have the feeling that we could save a whole lot of money if we didn't stay on site :/ Decisions decisions :/

Consider a split stay then we're doing 2 nights at PPH when we arrive in LA, then off to Hollywood for 4 nights and back to Anaheim for 8 nights at Hojo's. I really wanted to experience one of the Disney hotels & get an EMH on top of MM from our hoppers but we couldn't have done our whole stay there & it worked out perfectly for us with a split stay to cover Halloween first and the start of Christmas at the end good luck!

Seriously?!? That sucks!!

I'm helping my mum and aunty plan a trip to WDW, Hawaii and Vegas for Sept/Oct next year. If I can wrangle it, I'll go with them, but I sorta don't see it on the cards... Anyhoo - I'm going to plan it like I'm going anyway!

We're going to try and get to WDW to see both the F&W festival at Epcot and the halloween decorations/MNSSHP but that will depend on what dates it all happens.

We stayed at POR last trip to WDW and loved it, but I think we're going to try somewhere different this time, possibly even considering off site. Plenty of time for planning though!

Awesome. If you have tentative dates i will add you into the roll call on the front page

I have now created a new trip plan... Sept 4-10 dlr, 10 - 15 wdw, 15 - 19 on a dcl bahamas cruise then 19 - 23 at universal orlando then 23-25 flying home. That is 21 days from start to finish and carlo's bro can just travel home on 25th and go to work the next morning if he has to. We took a vote and decided that we will adjust to a certain degree but will not totally compromise our trip just for 1 person.. Much as we love him and want him on the trip we are not chopping all the good stuff out just because he cant get as much time off... If necessary we can fly home on the sunday so he gets an extra day before going back to work but that is it

Sorry for the ramble

Hey everyone!!

My sister and me are planning our second trip to the world, we went this year in January 2012 for three weeks and are now planning to head back in October/November 2013 and hopefully do both the Halloween and Christmas parties in the same trip. Fingers crossed we might be able to also do a cruise on the Disney Dream, as this will be our last trip for awhile due to studying, family and other trip commitments.

hi shannon i have added you to the list. when it gets closer to the time and you have your dates arranged, i will update the list for you

in other news for me, i reviewed our plans and decided they were a little too much compromise and not enough excitement for me.

i love the complexities of planning a great trip for my family (ie me & carlo) and my sister and having his brother and all of us being adults with our own ideas, opinions and agenda. my problem at this time is that everyone loves to say 'no, that doesn't work for me' when i put forward ideas, but they don't have any thoughts or ideas or suggestions to help make the process easier.

i have had to compromise on budget (his brother), time frame (his brother), adding in wdw (my sister), removing our 7 night caribbean cruise (his brother & my sister) and i feel we are left with something that i'm just not that excited about.

so i have come to the conclusion today (and have yet to discuss this with the others) that we can do dlr, and wdw, and include universal orlando but i want a longer cruise. i have managed to fit a 7 night eastern caribbean into our itinerary without compromising the other locations too much... and that is what i want to do. i want to enjoy disney, sure. but i also want this trip to be about seeing new sights and experiencing new things, rather than going to 3 different theme parks and doing a tiny cruise in which we don't even get off the boat ok. rant over. so. that's my new plan.

which means, doing up a new budget, working out all the extras like port adventures, and mnsshp and adr's etc. but it also means something to be excited about
