Great idea! When I planned for our wedding I told all our guests when we'd be at WDW and what we'd be doing while there, but basically made everyone plan their own trip. I wasn't going to be responsible for anyone being disappointed, or not seeing what they really wanted to, and I definitely wasn't going to spend a whole heap of time planning a magical trip, only to be told while there "hmm, no I don't feel like going there today, can we go tomorrow?" and knowing that it would mess everything up

Unfortunately you'll never find anything that will suit everyone in your group.

Just one more week and we will be a year away from our trip. We will be flying out of Auckland airport on the 21st of October. Not too sure how long we will be staying for, but we are looking at around the 15 night mark so we have plenty of time to do everything

I really don't like not having a definite time frame. . The one thing I DO know is that by this time next year, we will be back

DISNEY DISNEY DISNEY!

So far our travel dates have been decided on 21.10.13 - 5.11.12. We are still trying to decide on weather or not to extend our trip about a week and a half to see Disneyland with the christmas overlay. But the primary reason for the trip was Halloween, so that's what we will say a definate yes to at the moment! I'm having so much fun planning for this trip. I'm almost finished making my "optional extra's" book for my friend, which basically has a breakdown of the different character dining available so she can choose what ones she wants to do. I've got a lot of little surprises planned for her to make our trip as amazing as possible! It will be so great watching her absorb all the Disney magic for the first time.

So far the magical surprises that I have planned are;

- A Disney package that I will give to her before we leave for the airport that will contain one of these; http://www.disneystore.com/disneylan...61394/1000228/

- We are staying on property so I am going to work with vacation planning?? to make custom in room welcome baskets! (Most of the one's on the website aren't things I think we would enjoy)

- Hopefully I'll be able to organise for us to steer the Mark Twain Riverboat and sign the log book

- Lunch reservations at the Blue Bayou. I was planning on just getting pomme frittes and beignets. Can you get these at the BB, or is it just cafe orleans?

We're also planning on W.O.C dining at wine country trattoria, mainly because of the area you get in the reserved seating with eating here. I was planning on Carthay Circle but have heard that the viewing is not as good, the Happiest Haunts Tour, Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Party, swimming with (insert marine animal here) at SeaWorld, and trying to get in on some animal feeding at San Diego Zoo. We're trying to pack in as much special fun adventurous stuff as possible!

How's everyone else going with their planning?

Hey Everyone!!!

So we have finally decided on definitely doing the cruise and have put out deposit down for a Concierge family Suite aboard the Dream for 20 October 2013

We are currently planning the rest of this trip, but are going to hopefully add both the Halloween and the Christmas party to this trip as we will be unable to go back to WDW for a few years, due to other travelling plans. (and wanting to visit other Disney parks.)

Currently we are now doing the 4 night Bahamian Cruise with Disney and then spending 2 and half weeks at Disney World. We are also thinking about adding a day at Discovery Cove and maybe a day at Sea World in between our park days at WDW :D

Can't wait to hear the plans for everyone else!!

wow everyone has been very busy with plans. i started my new job monday, and right now we are playing catch up with bills and i have to create a more in depth budget to figure out how we are going to afford this trip. we do have the airfares prepaid, so that is a little sigh of relief.

happy planning everyone i have a big weekend coming up with a joint birthday party for carlo and my dad which is being celebrated at my house tomorrow evening... so i have a lot of cleaning and housework to get to this evening/tomorrow morning.

i haven't even started to think about christmas yet. i am trying to do this disneypalooza trip for as cheap a budget as i can while still creating magical memories

Mickey is slowly moving along on my countdown ticker.
11 months to go

26 of our 29 nights are booked.
Just got to book 1 night in the Monterey area, and 2 nights near Universal Studios ( will probably be the Hilton Universal).
