We are popping back for some well earned vacation time 19th August-2nd Sept 2013 staying at Disney's Yacht Club (water view) flights with KLM/Delta which were much cheaper than using VA and even allows us to break up the journey and stretch our legs . We are really looking forward to this one since we have never flown indirect nor have we ever stayed at a Disney deluxe resort before. We do plan on leaving the parks and going to the dark side for 2-3 days and finally have the chance to go to WWOHP and do all the stuff DS was too small for on our 2005 trip ... Yeah it's been a long while since then and he just turned 13 at the weekend so we have to wait and see if he will try more new things including meals since he is now on the "adult" tariff for meal credits and tickets!!! We are busy checking blogs and fan sites and podcasts and reading dining reviews until February and waiting for the official park hours and WDW Dining Plan info before we decide on our ADRs. So it's fun to plan but DS has no idea which resort we booked yet, it was his favourite place on our last vacation purely because of the fantastic pool. Of course the location is great too, the resort thread is well maintained and friendly which is also a bonus. We are counting down the days between now and then and enjoying our Disney Christmas ornaments and plush toys around the house it reminds us of the great feeling of being there.

We fly 26/08 to New York & then down to Disney for 9 nights on 3rd Sept - so those of you in 1 bedroom villas at OKW leave them tidy as that's where we're heading too.

Cant wait to see new Fantasy Land, ride Test Track & enjoy 'free' DDP.

Last holiday with kids as they'll both be off to Uni (fingers crossed) the week after we get back.

We're going August 12th for 20 nights. We too aren't paying Virgin prices this year and are flying in direct from London to Houston to Orlando.

Can't wait, I know the drive back to Liverpool when we land in London will be horrendous but we're going to Florida!

I've just reluctantly booked our flights with Virgin for stupid money! We really didn't want to fly indirect as we'll be travelling with a 3 month old and if we'd booked with BA we would have been messing around trying to get to Gatwick!

We're going 7-24 August, indirect with United via Newark, then Dulles on return. 13nights at Wilderness Lodge, then 4 nights at the beach, not sure where yet, but veering towards Fort Lauderdale, seems plenty to do!

We are going 13th-31st August, flying biz, United from MAN (are virgin actually managing to sell what I considered a tatty business cabin for nearly 3k each?), on a cruise in middle for 1 week from 18th-25th August. Staying at BLT in a 1 bedroom for 2nd leg unsure about the first but DW fancies an epcot resort.

BTW, Doing cruise with Royal Caribbean again this year, they have a great deal on for anyone interested at the moment, it was £619 each for 1 week on freedom of the seas, they are including a free upgrade at the moment from a window cabin to a superior balcony cabin, its a UK offer, same cabin is $1299 on US website.
