Whew, just finished reading this whole thread!

We booked a free dining bounceback for August 2013 when we went to WDW in September 2012. We will be staying at CBR from August 18th-August 21st (the 21st is our 9 year wedding anniversary!).

We may change the dates once our school calendar is released, and we may change resorts if AoA gets added, but that's what we booked for now. Since it's getting close to ADR time, I thought it was time to hop on this thread and get serious about planning!

I don't know if there is a Facebook page, if there is please post a link, much easier for me to follow there!

I have been trying to work on ADRs but I find it so hard when I don't know park days/hours. For those of you that are planning, how do you decide which days to go to which restaurants. We have hopper passes so we are not restricted to one park for dinner, I just feel lost as to where to start!

Yes folks there is a facebook page! The link is on the first post and also in my signature. There is also a FB Doc in there so you can post your real name and DisName so we know who is who.

I'm gonna get to work now on adding the new people to our resort list

Still looking to book August 3rd - 9th (7 days) with PH&WPM and QSDP.

Some additions and changes to the first posts. Added a few links, getting threads set for the ADR and Park Days. I'm going to post a link to the park hours and crowd calendars as soon as their available. So far added resort maps and photopass link. If anyone can think of any links that should be on the front page let me know!

Dork Alert!

Where else can I proudly proclaim I have now started an Excel Spreadsheet to keep up with my Disney trip planning!? I have tabs for park hours (when we know them), confirmation numbers, ADRs (when I can make them), meet-ups with friends, etc. I can't help it -- I am addicted to Excel. I was thinking last night that I should start a spreadsheet to help my DD10 track her sit-ups and push-ups for her Black Belt requirement in May.... it's a disorder, I know!

About the Facebook page: I am not on Facebook (probably the last American female under 50 who has not joined!). Hopefully this thread will continue simultaneously with the FB page as I will be relying on everyone's advice here more and more as August approaches!!

I have an excel spreadsheet too. My tabs have budget, park days, dining, pharmacy list (items that have to be packed for WDW), snack list. It is fun to plan.

Hello fellow Disney lovers!! I was wondering if anyone has heard anything definite about the meal plan discount. I keep looking on the website and can't find anything, is it still to early to look do you think? I just don't want to miss my chance lol.

There is no dining offer yet, but I'm sure it will be announced here, if and when it arrives! The current special offers (room and ticket deals) expire on March 7 and 31st for travel through mid-June. Although they sometimes overlap offers, waiting for additional deals until March or later would be a more reasonable timeframe. That said, I still check almost every day, just for the fun of it!
