    :welcome: I have you added to the first post! That sounds like a fun trip! I bet you are going absolutely crazy to get back since you used to go so often.

    :welcome: I have you added to the first post! I keep telling my husband that it's awesome to have my own kids, but I'm more excited for them to have kids! They're still young, only 3 and 5, but I'm excited to be a grandma. :rotfl: I love your motives! It's also exciting that your hubby is going along!

    The hubs and I have decided that our October trip is just going to be the two of us!!! I am seriously over the moon with this! We're doing a different (ie: cheaper) family vacation this year and going to take the family next October to WDW. DH and I have been talking about just the two of us going for quite a long time. We're both pretty stoked. :dance3:

    It's been fun thinking about where we want to eat. Since it will just be the two of us, signatures will definitely be happening! Narcoossee's & Le Cellier dinners, I can't go to WDW and not go to 'Ohana for dinner, and Sanaa for lunch. For now, those are it. I'm also thinking the Grand Floridian Cafe for breakfast on our last day. Lobster eggs benedict! Sign me up! :worship:

    Yes. (Edited my last post).

    Technically, she's not a WDW newbie. We took her to Animal Kingdom in February 2010. At the time, we could only afford one day pass. We've saved, and now we're getting six day passes. :cool1: Right now, $1,500 in Disney gift cards. With another 52 weeks to go.

    Hello all!! :wave2:

    I actually started the November 2013 thread because I will be there then as well, but I'd love to be apart of this thread too :goodvibes


    We are going Oct 25th - Nov 2nd and staying at AoA. It will be my family (myself, DH and our 2 daughters who will be 7 & 8) my father, and my inlaws. I'm really excited to go - We were supposed to go last Oct with my parents, but my father suffered a heart attack a few days before our trip (they were already in Florida) and missed the trip entirely. I had so many special things planned, a specialty cake at one of our TS dinners, VIP seating for the Boo To You parade, a special package waiting for us in our room (2 bdrm villa @ Saratoga), tea at the GF with my mom and girls..... We wanted to have a "re-do" and booked again for Oct 2013, but my mother passed away this past October from complications with breast cancer.
    At least my father will be able to come with us this trip, and I plan on making it all as memorable as possible.

    I let my daughter watch the 2013 Dinsey planning DVD and she now insists that we stay at AOA. I really want to stay at POFQ or POR. Since it is her birthday trip, I might concede to her wishes. Has anyone her stayed in the LM rooms at AOA?

    We were at Disney in Deceber of 2011 at one of the All Stars and while there was nothing really wrong, I just was hoping for a moderate for this next trip.

    We are already on the chart. October 17 - 22.

    We are staying at AoA for our October 2013, but we are staying in a family suite.

    We were originally going to stay at the AKL but we decided to switch to a family suite because my DH is a night owl. That way DD can go to sleep early but DH and I don't have to. We are staying in the Finding Nemo section.

    Hello all! My trip is to celebrate 18 months of SMobriety. I quit smoking February 22, 2012 and opened a savings account. I put all money I would have spent on cigarettes into that account. I'll have $3300 by the time of my trip. We were originally just going to the darkside, but we are now doing Epcot as well. My budget just has to cover transportation, lodging, and tickets. 2 days of Food and Wine Fest, then darkside ending with 2 nights of HHN.

    On my last trip we stayed our last night at AoA LM. I'd be happy to answer any questions.

    I enjoyed the resort, but if I ever do a split stay again it will go up in categories, not down.

    Set our dates Oct 16-21, 2013! Haven't decided on a resort yet but leaning towards the moderate. It will be my husband first time to WDW actually his first trip to Florida. I haven't been in 10 years myself. Traveling with our 28 month old..should be interesting!! Super excited. Any suggestions on resorts will be greatly appreciated!!

    Aww, thank you! I kept track of the September 2011 thread also and had such a fantastic time. I met quite a few ladies from there that I still keep in touch with on Facebook. :goodvibes I'm hoping our thread gets more active with trip planning talk soon. :rotfl:

    We are in the planning stages of an October trip. We are looking at Oct 5 - 10, but we are waiting for next school year calendar to be released. So far it will be me, DS - 8, my sister, my nephew - 2, and my mom. My DH, brother, and sister's boyfriend may join us depending on their work schedules. We are looking at ASMo or POR, depending on any discounts or pins. Will post when things are more concrete.
