Our trip is currently booked for June 10 - 13, 2013, but the DH doesn't want to go in June again. We went in June this year, and he doesn't want to deal with crowds like that again. I didn't think they were that bad. If he gets his way, the new dates will be January 7 - 11, 2014. I like the January dates better, since the youngest DS and I will have birthdays on the trip. It'll be the youngest DS's 15th birthday and my 38th. I just don't like taking them out of school.

We have gone in May & August in the past. I'm excited to go during a slower time... but I am most excited about not dealing with the heat

When we went, this past June, we only had to deal with heat on the first day we were there. Every other day of our trip, it rained. I didn't mind the rain because I was scared of the heat and humidity. On our way home though, I started getting sick and was sick for like a week. Our June trip was originally supposed to have been January 2013. Then I caught my DH price checking WDW trips in our locked bedroom. He thought the room only discount was too good to pass up, so we moved the trip to June.

The only thing I'm worried about with going in January, is the weather since we'll be driving. I already have an ADR schedule made, just in case we make the move for sure. I'm just excited to be able to wear the MH scarf I made for the trip to WDW.

Going December 30-January 6 2014 Planning to stay in the Wilderness Lodge Villas in 2 studios, but we have to wait another month to book since it is our home resort.

We know that the first two days there will be crazy, but it is a dream of mine to spend New Year's Eve at Disney and we hear it clears out after January 1st. We went back in 2006 that week and it was pretty quiet, so hopefully it has stayed that way

When did you go this past June? We went later in the month and were there for Tropical Storm Debby. Its the first time we have ever gone during the summer months and everyone thought we were crazy because of the heat. Well, I think it went about 80 once and every other day it was stormy The storm didn't bother us too much, except it cut our EPCOT day short. We did see Illuminations that night in a prime viewing location though because everybody was afraid to go out and watch it in the rain! Bright side of the trip was no heat and low crowds due to the storm.

Our dates are January 17th through January 22nd...right now planning on Port Orleans Riverside Preferred Room. Our cast will for sure be me, DH, DS and DS' BFF but DD may come if her job situation allows it...and maybe some close family friends if they are available.

Well the original plan was to stay on site for a few days but because we have to fly 1 week earlier we have decided to stay on idrive for the whole period.

We arrive 29th Dec and leave 22nd Jan so plenty of time in a quiet time to enjoy Disney
