My husband and I are planning another trip to WDW, but sadly it won't be until late 2014. I have an insane amount of days yet to go (700+), so no ticker yet ... it would just be too depressing! Trying to look at the bright side though - only 203 days until we can make our reservations!
That's what we like, a positive attitude!!

I'm hoping there will be some Christmas decorations up when we're there. I know everything won't be fully-decorated, but we're hoping to at least do the resort tour. Our dates are Nov. 15-22, 2014. Only on the DIS can you plan 2 years ahead and nobody bats an eye!
yep, you can hang with us on the long distance planning. 'Course you realize that when you begin to read about posters booking deals with public codes, Free Dining and such, you *may* get an itch to book something .... which we will highly encourage!! So yes, you best stick around, maybe we can get you to Disney in less than 700+ days ...

Oh, you had a question!! Decorations will already be up at MK for the Christmas party, and decorations at the resorts usually begin going up the week before Thanksgiving, which covers some of your stay.

coffee and air mattresses

Hi! I've enjoyed reading through the thread. It has been very helpful! I still have some questions. First, can we bring a small coffee pot to use in the room?

Second, if we use air mattresses for the kids, do we need to deflate them every day or can we just leave them out pushed against a wall (or reasonably out of the way for housekeeping)?

Thanks!!

Yes, small coffee makers are allowed and no you don't have to deflate your air mattresses. HTH!

I know as soon as I see all the FD promos, I'll be talking to my husband about a quick trip next year. We do have some work to do on our house, though, and that comes first. The trip in 2014 will be for our 15th wedding anniversary, so I'm super excited about it!

Thank you for the info about Christmas decor. We usually go in September when it's hot and humid, so I'm looking forward to going during a cooler time of year.

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

You're welcome!! Don't you just wish you lived only a few hours away? Then shorter trips would be doable. We usually go in August, so hot and humid too. Just think your November anniversary trip will have holiday decorations, MVMCP and cooler weather... it will be amazing and worth waiting for!!

I guess you missed my post past that one. I had only looked at the right side of the clock when I had posted that. A day later, I looked at the left side and saw the white noise function. I came back and reported that here in the thread.

Just to let y'all know that I called American Airlines. I asked them to rebook me on an earlier flight and cited the schedule change. They rebooked my family and I for free. It helps to be platinum elite on American.

I'm now arriving at MCO at 5:00 pm. I'm gunna get some dinner in the food court and pack my swimsuit in my carry on so I can hit the pool while I wait for my luggage to be delivered to my room!

On another matter, I got my travel documentation from the Walt Disney Travel Company. It says we have a standard room. I asked for a preferred room, and I think the room classification of the room changed when I called to add a night.

So I called WDTC to change the classification of the room back to preferred. I learned that they were sold out of preferred rooms. The call center cast member I spoke to wait listed me for a preferred room. She also took a room request for a room near the food court and bus stop. Here's hoping they honor the room request and I can get a room near the food court and bus stop.

I always go with standard rooms and have always been happy with my location. I especially like getting a lake view. If you do not get a preferred room, don't let it upset the start of your vacation. However, do make sure that you're not being charged for a preferred room if you are not given the preferred room. I've heard of that happening in the past.
