    FYI, I live in CT & not sure if you consider that north, OK I know it is from NC but we don't go back to school until the last few days of August-usually the Wed or Thurs before Labor Day.

    I am hoping for free dining for the third week of August next year as we were able to get it for that week last year (2011) pixiedust:

    Free dining (the public offer) was only made available for the very last week of August this year, so I am hoping for some major pixie dust for 2013 and that the powers that be at Disney will include more dates in August next year so that my family can stay onsite at a Disney hotel again.

    We are planning for next August as well! We just returned and I decided instead of being sad about being home we will plan for next year! We are planning an AoA/Poly CL split for about 15 nights. :goodvibes

    Congrats... we were just there from 8/11-8/20 and wanted to book the FD bounceback for next year so bad but couldn't because of how late it was starting. With my oldest now in college and my youngest playing sports in high school, we'd have to be back in MA by the 19th. So, I'm hoping for another pin code discount - was lucky the last 3 years in a row, here's for wishing my lucky streak continues as we'd like to plan a return trip 8/9-8/18/2013!!

    I think I want to do another late August trip next year. I get enough vacation time for a birthday trip and a summer trip, I didn't hate the heat nearly as much as I expected to, and the rain doesn't bother me. :beach:

    I just don't know what dates to pick. I'm thinking the last week, 26-30... It'll be a week later than my trip this year, so maybe even less crowded.

    We usually book the end of August thru the 1st couple of days into Sept. The FD is a bonus. August 2013 can't come quick enough..

    Were just there September 1st - September 8th and there was a bounce back offer for the free dining. I went ahead and booked it because with the opening of the Fantasyland extension I was not sure whether or not we would get a pin code for a discount on the room, last year we could have gotten 40% off the room if we had booked before check out but we decided we would wait and ended not getting as good of a deal so this time I said let's just go ahead and book the offer before check out. Our next trip is booked for August 31st - September 7th.

    We're planning too! :cool1:
    Aug. 11-23, split stay between BWV and BLT (we like to be able to walk to the resorts, so this hits 3 of them!). We booked the BWV part this past week and are booking the BLT part tomorrow (fingers crossed!). This will be our first trip as just our family, after having taken each of my girls by themselves the summer between kindergarten and first grade, and going last year with my mother. We're already so excited! :goodvibes
