How cold?

I'll chime in with my story -
I'm Kari, married for almost nine years. We have two kids, 6 and 2. I am a registered nurse. Growing up, my parents took me and my sister to Disney almost every year. After I graduated From high school, the family vacations stopped. I didn't go again until after I graduated from college. DH proposed on that trip (2004). We went again before we got married (2005), and we went to Disneyland for our first anniversary (2006). Then we didnt go again until 2012. That was my first time staying on site and now I'm hooked! We went again in 2013, and have 2014 booked! Hoping to keep it an annual thing like my parents did for me.

Just an update, so far all I've been able to see is mid-march as a drop for the next promo. As you also know, these things drop on Monday or Thursday.

Just to be clear, I don't have any insiders that tell me secrets. I base all of my information on my own research...combined with my knowledge of how things fit together. These have produced very good results in the past; however, I should point out that the information is getting more and more scarce. Disney has long said that they have a goal to seal up all the leaks, and it is surprising how much they have done so. I will continue to report on what I find.

Hi My name is Julie I am a 32 year old Disney fanatic! I am married to my high school sweetheart and best friend! Together we have 2 Disney obsessed sons! I am currently in my last semester of nursing school (yay only 8 weeks left!). I also have been working as a sleep technician for the past 9 years!

My Disney obsession started as a 3 year old visiting DL several times until I moved across the country. At 12 years old I went to WDW for the first time and I was amazed and in love! But I then hit those teenage years when you are too cool for everything. But my obsession could only lay dormant for so long! By the time I got married I had to go back! We decided to have a disneymoon! I have tried since then to go back to Disney every year since then! We have only missed one year since I spent most of it pregnant with our youngest son! He was 9 months old on his first trip! He is now 5 years old and going on his sixth trip this fall!

I try to check the boards once a day but that's on a busy day!Slower days Im on here A LOT more haha! Im obsessed with this board and saving money for Disney so Im pretty much at home here!

This looks like a friendly thread with knowledgeable folks. Hopefully someone can help me...
I am an annual pass holder planning a trip 9/13/14 - 9/21/14. Anyone know how many days of park tickets I will be required to buy for my 9 night stay in order to get the free dining? It looks like Black heard rumors of a promotion coming out mid-March....would that be fall FD already?

By September, my family will be 3 Disney adults and 2 kids. Dining plan for 9 days would be almost $2000 for us! (Eeekk!) I think I can buy 2 day park tickets for half that. I know that's all you needed to purchase in the past to qualify, but I don't know if that's still how it works.

IF that's still how it works, would I be able to SAVE those tickets to use in a couple years? We will be coming off of 4 visits in a year (most for 10 days each)...we need to go somewhere else next year!

Thanks!

I saw nothing aside from mid-March being mentioned and it certainly would be early to do a free dining promo for September...especially since they haven't brought promos into August yet.

Unless they do something spectacular, the next round of promos should cover into August, and the September offer (free dining) should come down the road.

My kids had a 2 hr delay for a dusting...a little premature in the delay. I wish they would have waited until morning to make a decision.

Nothing like a work snow day! Do you by chance recall the black out dates for January? Is MLK day/week blacked out?

I can dig them up here in a few.

The only thing that bothers me about the whole mid-March thing is that the current promo doesn't run out until March 31st. That's about the only thing that gives me pause about it all.

I laughed out loud when I woke up and saw the dusting this morning. They almost never call the night before, figures they did this time. Oh well, the kids were happy an it won't eat up our summer....

Ours has a few times but it was usually as it was actively snowing. It wasn't doing squat when they called last night.

Our weathermen actually reported yesterday that the storm had gone south and we wouldn't be getting snow, as they originally predicted 6-8". I was shocked that they got it right, even if it wasn't until 24 hours prior.

Wasn't free dining released in March two years ago?

Second, I just realized that we've never really done a round robin in here. That could be a fun way to kill some time. Introduce yourself. Married? Kids? How did you first become a Disney fanatic? What do you do for a living? Things like that....

Does that sound like fun?
Hi there! I'm engaged to be married to my wonderful DFi this coming October, and we are spending our honeymoon at the DarkSide and WDW. No kids yet, but hopefully after the wedding

I guess I've always loved all things Disney! I grew up watching The Wonderful World of Disney, which aired a different Disney film every Sunday evening. And I constantly rented the VHS tapes, and received them as birthday/Christmas gifts. My grandparents went to DisneyWorld when I was two so I was always aware that a park existed where you could get on rides and see Mickey Mouse, and I ALWAYS wanted to go there. We went for the first time when I was 8, and I didn't return until i was 23. I went this past May, it was DFi's first trip, and he LOVED it! We intend on many more vacations there in the future, and we can't wait to bring kids there.
