    A friend just said they changed their itinerary because there is a high school dance competition scheduled the last week of January. I can't find any info online (other than a college competition 8-10 and then something in February). Anybody know anything about this? Thanks for the info!

    The only competitions I can find is a college competition Jan 18-20 and then another dance competition Feb 2-3. Nothing in the last week of January that I could find.

    Hi all,

    Been ages since I've been on the board, and happy to be back. I want to plan our 5 yr Anniversary trip end of Jan - Maybe 25-Feb 2 for just me and DH. Any ideas on how busy the parks are at that time?

    Also, DH wants to stay on site, but we'll have a rental car and I like the idea of staying off site.

    So we've officially decided what we're doing during our trip:

    Sun. Jan. 6 - Arrive at AoA; depending on our moods, might go to Hollywood Studios for the Osbourne Lights
    Mon. Jan. 7 - Animal Kingdom EMH, Hollywood Studios, might do Epcot EMH
    Tues. Jan. 8 - Downtown Disney for shopping; might visit some resorts too
    Wed. Jan. 9 - Epcot or Magic Kingdom
    Thurs. Jan. 10 - Daytona for Preseason Thunder; Ordered our tickets for Fan Fest this morning so we're going to be meeting some of the drivers. (I'm finally getting to meet Tony Stewart!)
    Fri. Jan. 11 - Epcot or Magic Kingdom (whichever park we didn't go to Wed.)
    Sat. Jan. 12 - Go Home :(

    Once we get through Christmas, I'll be all giddy for Disney. :)

    We love Disney in January. Whatever the temp is in Orlando it's still 40 -50 degrees warmer then home!
    But you can usually expect to see high in the high 60's/low 70's, we've seen it get into the 80's before. Low's can get down in the 30's overnight, but it's usually in the 40's or 50's.

    I have gone a number of times in January and have worn shorts on one trip and been snowed on the next year. I am going this January as well and I am just planning to check the forecast closer to time.

    Sorry hit send accidentally. We I now have to have surgery Monday. I could come out walking or I could come out non weight bearing for 6 weeks, which will be the 3rd day at Disney. I have read after the 6weeks you can only weight bear 25%. This is not how I planned this trip to go.

    That sounds nice...much better then Midwest Jan temps.

    I can handle that kind of weather...well less the snow. Will keep an eye on the weather the closer we get. :goodvibes

    I was also able to use a free dining pin and it saved me another $400. I was super excited about it!! It was like making a $400 payment on my trip. LOL

    19 days now! :hyper: We are in the teens now!! :cool1:

    Back to the pin codes for a moment...Did you just call and ask if you had any pin codes, or did you ask if there were any discounts that could be applied?
    Wondering if I should try, or ask my TA to try...
