Smile Count Us In - Beginning Planning Now

We just discussed that it has been 3 years since we have been to WDW! Times flies! (Remember the Snow-athon in 2010 - we do)
The kids reminded us that we said 2014 - so it is planning time!
Hello to all my fellow Jan 2014 friends!

Got a pin today for free dining or 35% off room only. It's good from Jan 2 - March.

Please, please, please can I get this next year! LOL

My mother and I are strongly considering going in January '14. (I say strongly and not definitely because we are taking a family non-Disney vacation in October for my father's 60th birthday and we have to see how that rolls out financially)

I'm not planning on booking anything until the summer when the packages come out partly because I'm not sure where we are staying. I'd like to upgrade from Pop seeing as I have not stayed in a moderate since 1997! I know my mom would like an escape from the sometimes truly scary food court (scary as in chaotic) and I'm hoping there's a decent dining and/or room discount that'll let us upgrade. I'd really like to be able to more for my mom than myself because aside from her view of the value resort food courts she also hates being cold and it sure was cold when we went in January 2010. (not that staying in a moderate would make it warmer; it would just be a nice touch to have on our vaca!)

My last trip was in October of 2011. Since then, about every other month I've gotten a pincode via snail mail from Disney. It's crazy! Apparently Mickey *really* misses my face. (This one was a code for up to 35% off rooms various dates now through September plus a code for free dining). However, I know that once I book my trip the postcards will cease to arrive because that's my luck afterall.

Count me in! We snagged one of the super cheap Miami wonder cruises over my birthday and thought why not round the week out with a couple days in WDW? We would be looking at either a couple days before the cruise or going wed-sun after the cruise, so sometime in late January!

We are going January 10-16 for 1/2 marathon. Hoping the dates are right just kind of guessing.

There is now way to 'get' a pin code. They just happen. There seems to be no way to figure out why or how people get them. Make an account on the disney website. Plan and "save" a few trips. Order the trip planning dvd. Sign up for e-mails and then cross your fingers.

If you cxl room only reservation to make change will you still be able to have the same resort or do you start from scratch??

I have gotten snail mail and email from Disney - how do you know if a pin is attached? Obviously - have never gotten a pin or rather never known if I have gotten a pin... Is it really obvious or like a "Hidden Mickey"

My pins have usually come via snail mail and it is a brightly colored- Disney themed all over "tri- fold" sort of envelope. But not really an envelope If ya know what I mean sorta bigger than a regular envelope. And on a heavier card stock. In other words- you can't miss it BUT if your not careful you may end up throwing away as junk mail. Hope that helps

In the past I have always booked out at the 499 mark & never had any problems calling & adding a package to my existing reservation. They may have technically canceled & re-booked behind the scenes - but there was never a problem keeping the same resort and dates.
