    Maybe our husbands need a club. "My wife is a crazy vacation planner club" or something like that. They could have a support group over nachos and beer :grouphug:

    It's the exact opposite in our house. My wife won't plan anything, she just tells me the things that she wants to do during a vacation. She has me plan out each day so that it doesn't break any "OCD'ness". lol

    We only have 352 days of planning left. :goodvibes

    I'm the same - constantly planning & getting excited over the details & DW is like yeah ok
    She will enjoy it but doesn't want to get bogged down in the details. Prolly OCD tendencies I get with planning , being a financial planner... Lol

    lol...I bet with that job you are the ultimate planner! :) Fortunately for us, we don't have the hours planned, just the days, and even those can alter as we go (except ADR's, etc). Once we get to the parks, we don't have a touring plan, etc.

    Well after reading the Boards and weighing our choices, we changed resorts to The Wilderness Lodge. When we were in Disneyland in 2008, we fell in love with the Grand Californian when we ate at Napa Rose for our anniversary. Plus, my DH was a bit surprised that POFQ was like a motel (a nice one). We plan on quite a bit of down time and plan on spending a lot of time at our resort, so I think it will be worth it. Only wish we were closer to DTD and hope we can take advantage of the pool at least once.

    356 days and counting

    We don't do any touring plans. For lunch we just pick a CS wherever we are at around 11:00 am - 11:30 am. We do make a few TS ADRs for dinner. I will feel a lot better when the airlines release their schedules.

    I am waiting also for curiosity. We can drive in 6.5 hours, but last year we decided to fly just so we wouldnt have to drive. I am anxiously awaiting a closer date to determine if we really want to do that again or not.

    I wish we were only 6 hours away. I think I heard from where I am in MD it is 12-18 hours by car which is too long for us. It is a 2 hour plane ride which is great. How often do you get to Disney?

    I actually grew up close to Maryland in Great Falls, VA. My Grandparents took us to Disney most summers. Was a blast. Now, since my wife hates Disney, we only go every few years. In 2010 we got lucky and went twice.

    What about you? :)

    I will be in WDW from 9th - 15th December 2013.

    I hear that this is Pop Warner week. Is this likely to impact crowd levels in the parks?

    I agree with the previous poster. From what I have read, the parks are really not effected much by them, but you will see more and more of them as the week progresses.

    I hear good and bad stories about them in the resorts. Enough so that I changed our resort reservation at one point. Now, it is starting to appear that we will be there the week prior. :)
