We already have our flights booked and are looking forward to it.
Welcome

While it is still "a rumor",apparently it was supposed to go down for a refurb but with Indy down,they postponed it till Jan...or so "they" say. Here is the thread.

We hope to either stay at BWPPI or the Desert Inn and Suites. I'm leaning towards the Desert Inn and suites because of the C-2 suite that accommodates 10.

See you there!

Sounds like a great way to celebrate your birthday! Let me know when you firm up your plans and I'll change your itinerary on the first page.Maybe we"ll cross paths

So....Fat tuesday is Feb 12.Is Mardi Gras before that? I know ....but we really don't do Mardi Gras in Northern Canada.

I am looking forward to forgetting where I am! Disneyland is like it's own little planet, where worries are left at the gate.

I am looking forward to spending 5 days alone with my husband and son, being a family, having a fun family trip!

Looking forward to seeing the new rides and areas of the parks : Little Mermaid ride, Cars Land, **Starbucks**!

And since we are skipping Knotts, we will have a full 2 1/2 days of Disney!

I have my 2013 Unofficial Guide, which is already bookmarked and highlighted a bunch! This may be our last trip for a while, and I want to make sure we see a lot of things we didn't see on our last 3 trips.

Oh - and I am looking forward to seeing Universal Studios again! And going on the Transformers ride, and the Simpsons ride at least twice!! And the Universal CityWalk shops!
Well,I hope you have lots of fun in "Idaho" Your family sounds like mine.Just looking forward to family time.....and ALL THE NEW STUFF!!!!!!!!!!

We're going 10th through 15th as well with our 4yo twins - their first out-of-town vacay and plane trip. I have reservations on hold at HoJo and DLH. Will try to decide which one later, esp if I can find a promotion or something for the DLH since it's twice as expensive as HoJo!

I'm totally new here so hoping to get the info we need

I just realized that President's Day is the Monday before I am expected to arrive. I know that President's Day typically brings bigger crowds, but how long to do they last. Is the following weekend (5 and 6 days later) still packed?

A definite 'maybe'. Now that our Dec trip is canceled.
IF we can shanghai the grandkids. And the deities of the 'tax return' are good to us.

Add us on for Feb 20-24th! Can't wait! It will be me (the OCD-Disney person), DD (almost 9yo at trip-time, quickly taking after me with the OCD-Dis bug), and SO. Working out where we will be staying

We usually spend a good chunk of a week there in Feb for DS's birthday/winter break from school. We've been doing that for over a decade now. About 25% of the time, there's a huge storm blowing through the area, but that never stopped us. No lines! Hmm.. might be more than 25% of the time since we have about 3 sets of Disney ponchos and 1 set of Disney umbrellas and we've used them more than once...

Anyone have a prediction on this?
