    Hey everybody,

    I know we have almost a year to go but I thought it would be a good time to start planning some trips for May 2013. Is there a better way to wait out the long months until our next trip than spend it with other Disney Lovers who are going at the same time.:thumbsup2

    *Updated June 21st, 2012
    Trying to make it easier for everyone to be able to see what others plans are I have reserved the next three posts to keep track of everything.

    Post 2 is a list of when everyone is going and where they are staying. If any of this info changes just let me know and I will change it ASAP. For those who are new just let me know when you are going and I will add it to the list as soon as I can.

    Post 3 is for ADR's. I know we can't yet make any ADR's, but as soon as we can I will add your confirmed ADR's to the list with the dates and times (if you are comfortable with it). Who knows, maybe a couple of us will have ADR's that overlap.

    Post 4 is resevered for links to PTR's. If you are like me you like to read all the PTR's you can get your hands on. Here is a great place to have them all in one place so we can all say hi to each other.

    I also wanted to let everyone know that it came to my attention after I started this thread that a May 2013 thread had already been started. If anyone wants to check out that thread here is its link. http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2820611

    I'm so ready to start planning, I'm driving myself nuts! We'll do Cocoa/Melborne beach May 26th-30th then will be headed "home" May 30th-June6th. Probably staying at POR although our love is WL, we'll see what $$ allows!:rotfl: Only 339 more days, ha!
    I won't be doing a PTR or even a TR as writing just isn't my thing, but I'll be reading everyone else's!

    Goofy4WDW1964 - Will be there from May 18th, 2013 to May25th, 2013. If we rent DVC will be staying at Old Key West. Otherwise, will be at Port Orleans - Riverside.

    If we do dining plan, whether free or not, we will be dining at Chefs of France, Via Napoli, Crystal Palace and the Plaza Restaraunt for sure. Considering the Japanese restaurant and Mexican restaurant as well, and, hoping that we can try the new Be Our Guest at the Magic Kingdom.

    Welcome to the thread. I know what you mean, if I didn't start planning something soon I was going to drive myself and everyone around me crazy. I can't wait to start reading everyone elses PTR's.:cheer2:

    Welcome to the thread. I am loving your choices for ADR's. I can't wait until Be Our Guest opens so I can read more about it. I am thinking that my DD will just love it. :goodvibes I will add the ADR's once they are booked to the thirst post.:thumbsup2

    Welcome mickeystoontown, I am so glad you are here. CBR looks like such a nice resort.

    Ahh you are so sweet Daisy 77. Welcome to the thread and congats on the upcoming baby. Traveling with a baby should be fun.:thumbsup2

    I know what you mean about the resorrts. One day I have decided Pop all the way but the next I am thinking POR might be nice, I really enjoyed POFQ, and CBR looks beautiful. Oh the decisions.:confused3

    Hey Jennyjinx3, Welcome to the thread. I was there last May 27 which I believe was the second weekend of SWW. I am thinking it should be open on May 25 and probably will be the weekend before. But this is just an guess, will not know for sure until the actual dates come out.:confused3

    Added your dates to the list.:thumbsup2

    Thank you! I am excited to travel with a baby, but super nervous. DD was 2 during her first trip and it was a breeze. So I am hoping with the proper preparations this will be easy too.

    This will be DH's first trip. He is SO excited! He has never been to a Disney park. So this should be a LOT of fun! I am hoping he "drinks the kool-aid" and wants to go again after this trip. :hyper:

    I am seeing lots of links to past TRs and PTRs for next year! I am gonna have some fun reading to do this weekend! popcorn::

    Welcome Jasperess. I am with you waiting for Disney. I wish they would just open up the packages already. I guess I could make a room only reservation, but it just seems like such a pain to have to add on the package later.:confused3 I am super excited as well, so excited that I had to start a planning thread.:rotfl2:

    Add you to the dates.:thumbsup2

    Welcome AvasMommy 526. Sounds like you have a busy trip to plan next May. It also looks like or date over lap a little. Hope to see you at the World.:thumbsup2 I love your plans for ADR's. I will add everyone's ADR's when they are officially booked. :)

    Added you dates to the list.:cheer2:

    Yea Liddy's here. I am still disappointed that our trips don't overlap this year, but at least we will still be able to plan our trips together. Now we just need to convince some of the girls to come over here and join the fun. You know who I am talking about. (D, TK, oopsiDaisy, exc. . . ):rotfl2:

    Added you girl!:thumbsup2

    Welcome cindermomma, I am so glad you came over. I can't wait to read more about your trip.:cool1:

    My DD is spending the weekend with her dad so I am forcing myself to be non-productive and do some serious dis-ing :surfweb:

    DH has been so wonderful about all this Disney stuff. I don't think he has ever known anyone who loves something as much as I love Disney. He just humors me most of the time and says whatever I plan will be great. He doesn't know what monster he is creating :rolleyes1

    I also want to start laying down some plans or at least get some ideas of where we should eat. I haven't planned a trip since 2007...so I'm a little rusty.

    BTW, I started reading your PTR and your kids are so cute!! Your DD sounds a lot like mine. A sweet girly girl princess:
