    Just booked our flights for October - going 19th for 2 weeks.

    We had toyed with trying a different time but the combo of decent weather and low crowds works for us - this will be our 4th October in a row.

    No accomodation booked yet - will see what deals US disney do over the next few months. If not I quite fancy bahama bay again where we stayed last May.

    If anyone is there then hope we can have another DIS meet.

    Have you flown with them before, are you Advantage members?
    A round trip gives you enough airmiles to book a free nights hotel, 3 of you will get 3 nights free or a good discount off a better hotel.
    This trip we used miles from our trip last Nov(2 of us), 1 nights free at Clarion LBV with breakfast), £60 off Doubletree by Hilton near Naples.
    Well worth claiming.

    Will miss October this year, my favourite time to go, but can't complain because we're still getting to go in a few weeks time :goodvibes


    Hope you find the accommodation you want for a good price!

    We booked our October flights with car back in Dec direct with BA during the sale. We paid £2522 for 2 adults, 1 child, Premium Economy and car with Avis, the same deal now is £3367. I definitely think booking at 11 months during the sales is the way to go.

    Thanks for the heads up - will tell DH. Haven't flown recently with them.

    Luckily DD gets 2 weeks off school so is the obvious time to go for us.

    We went may last year - also a great time to go. have a great trip.

    Agree we usually book 11 months out. For work reasons we couldn't this time so glad to get booked at last. We are stuck with the saturday dates this year so I knew we would struggle with flights.

    would be great to meet up with you and your super cute DD, we're there 26-2 November, flying into Orlando via Miami and home direct from Tampa.

    And definitely use those AA miles, we have booked our last night in August at Doubletree Sawgrass Mills using our youngest DD's miles:thumbsup2
