    Hello everyone!! We are currently planning a Disney trip for May. We are thinking May 22-28 but we have not booked anything officially yet. We went this year around the same time and it worked out so well for us (except for the weather, rained a lot!) we want to do it again next year! We've stayed off site the past several trips and are planning to stay onsite this time around. :thumbsup2 POR is top runner at the moment for resort choice! Planning this far out is actually new to us. We are more of the 'last minute lets plan a trip' kind of people. When we planned our trip this past May we booked everything in April! I'm hoping this time around I'll be able to get the restaurants we want booked right away (wishful thinking!) instead of checking the disney dining website every hour the week before our trip!
    Happy planning everyone! :wave2:

    Howdy! I am happy to say I am now a May visitor! We were (actually still are) booked for March of 13, but things have changed and we are now planning on May 30-June 6. We are going to stay at POR Royal Rooms.

    It will be DH (33), myself (33), and DD (6). DD does not know the trip is coming and will not until we drive into WDW!!!

    This is our first family trip to Disney as adults, both DH and I went to Disney as children but have never stayed onsite before. Looking forward to this trip! :cool1:

    7 months out so we were able to switch resorts. We are now staying at Boardwalk 5/2-5/4 & 5/11-5/18 pre and post cruise. Got boardwalk view for the fist and preferred, wait listed for boardwalk, for the second. We have never stayed there and it's F&G so it should be fun. :cheer2:

    Wow! It's amazing what you can miss in a week! I've gotten all of our newbies added on! Have any of you gotten any good pin codes for next year yet? I haven't, but I'm hoping for some pixie dust!pixiedust:

    We (myself, DH, DD19, and DD friend) are going to BCV May 22-28! It's our home resort but we haven't been there in four years (went to DL and Aulani instead). Can't wait until May. Our ressies are made; now we just have to wait and see if DD19's summer plans still let us go during that time. She's looking for a summer internship, so hopefully it will start AFTER May 28.

    Count us in! Haven't officially booked yet, but we're planning on May 27-June 4 at Shades of Green. I'm happy that I can plan the first part of our trip, but not so happy that I have to wait for the June hours to come out to finish up. It's making me crazy!

    yay!
    I want to book! We are booking first week of November!

    DH was going to book through SW like prev trips... ... but figured out if he booked everything but flights through WDW, since we're staying longer, he's saving like $500!
