    I told my sister I'd do something similar with her and a few of her friends if they wanted to, but as soon as her friends found out the drinking age is 21 they said no. To quote my sister "you can get drunk off the happiness at Disneyland" :rotfl2::cool1: but drat I just realised it'll be a few extra years before we go haha

    We are booked on the Fantasy for December 7th 2013 with a week at WDW before that. We have about 8 weeks in the States planned; we had 7.5 weeks over Dec/Jan this year. We are me, DH, DD & DS who will be 13 & 12 at time of sailing. It will be our second DCL sailing.

    We are all booked. DW, 2 DD and I are jetting off to DL, DW and NY in Nov and Dec 2013.

    First stop Grand Cal then the Yacht Club for half our stay at WDW and the rest at WL before heading to the big apple and then home for Christmas.

    Its Never Too Early to Start Planning.

    Our group consists of my DH and DD as well as my sister and her 15 year old daughter and my daughters 10 closest friends. It is the end of year 12 so we are taking them all for my DD 18th birthday and we then avoid the whole schoolies thing. We are arriving on the 22nd of November for 10 nights. pixiedust: :grouphug:

    Very loose plans at this stage for Hawaii and Disneyland. Just DD8 and I this time. Looking at leaving the week before school finishes and come back around New Years.

    The mention of this trip seems to have stopped DD's tears since returning home on Friday :rotfl2: She was so devastated when we got home and there was no more Disney magic :upsidedow

    Not so long to wait for you then, very cool!!

    (Not that I mind waiting. It's *not* having a trip somewhere in the works that I don't like, lol!)

    Count me in! Rough plans at the moment is to fly Dec 9 to WDW. Going on the Fantasy on Dec 21, drive around the Southern States for about 2 weeks and hopping on the Allure of the Seas on Jan 12.

    WAMUMOF4, did you end up geting the house?

    We are a couple of months of being ready to buy we just went looking to see if we wanted to build which was the plan or if we would be happy with an existing house not expecting to find something we liked its been on the market for 4 months and we dont think it will sell in hurry it backs on to a highway and is quite noisy in the backyard but DH assures me we can reduce the noise so if it is still for sale when we are ready we will relook at it we were the only people at the open and the agent was very happy to see us :lmao:
    Funny thing is ds15 who has been desperate for us to buy a house is now saying Mum i am wondering if you should wait till i turn 18 and then you dont need a house so big and we could do more traveling I figure i may as well milk it whilst your paying :rotfl2::rotfl2::rotfl2: I just about fell over but i do like his way of thinking ;)
