august 2014!!

Anyone else planning for next August? I haven't been since summer of 2011 so this is my longest stretch of not going since my first 6 years of life-it's a tough wait!

So, a real question..when is the best time to book? This is gonna be my first all out, spend some money, do new things, but do it right trip. 10 days. And I'd like to stay in a moderate but would need a deal. When should I look if I'm thinking mid-august? I'd love either a room discount or free dining.

Any thoughts? Anyone want to count down with me??

We use DVC also and can book on Tuesday! 1 1/2 days and its torture.

We will be booked 8/10-8/24 doing a split stay.

Our last vacation was August 2012 and we booked 13 months early room only then added a discount and a package a month or so later. We got 2 rooms at CBR in the category we wanted so we were happy.

I would try to book now, and see if there is a AAA discount available. If so, you can book that, and see if something better comes out as you get closer.

What makes you decide to change resorts? Deals that come up? Just curious

Just barely make the august cut. We are going august 31-september 10 next year staying at coronado spring. I would say check out AAA and see what the discount looks like. If not you will want to wait for a pin of some sort. Cannot wait. last trip was our honeymoon in 2012. hope you have a fabulous trip!

I have been booked since July and I have switched resorts already no less than 6 times....

It will be interesting to see where we actually end up!
