I think I want to do another late August trip next year. I get enough vacation time for a birthday trip and a summer trip, I didn't hate the heat nearly as much as I expected to, and the rain doesn't bother me.

I just don't know what dates to pick. I'm thinking the last week, 26-30... It'll be a week later than my trip this year, so maybe even less crowded.

We usually book the end of August thru the 1st couple of days into Sept. The FD is a bonus. August 2013 can't come quick enough..

Were just there September 1st - September 8th and there was a bounce back offer for the free dining. I went ahead and booked it because with the opening of the Fantasyland extension I was not sure whether or not we would get a pin code for a discount on the room, last year we could have gotten 40% off the room if we had booked before check out but we decided we would wait and ended not getting as good of a deal so this time I said let's just go ahead and book the offer before check out. Our next trip is booked for August 31st - September 7th.
Visited WDW once a year(sometimes twice a year)between 1987 and 2000, stayed at FW Campground most of those times, FW Cabins one time, ASMu one time,and an offsite hotel a few other times.Since 2003 my DH and I have taken 8 trips to WDW and 1 DCL together.We stayed at an offsite hotel in 2003 and 2005, ASMo in 2008,CBR in 2009,Poly in 2010,2011,2012,2013. Bahamian Disney Cruise 2013. YC stay and Western Caribbean Cruise for 2014.

We're planning too!
Aug. 11-23, split stay between BWV and BLT (we like to be able to walk to the resorts, so this hits 3 of them!). We booked the BWV part this past week and are booking the BLT part tomorrow (fingers crossed!). This will be our first trip as just our family, after having taken each of my girls by themselves the summer between kindergarten and first grade, and going last year with my mother. We're already so excited!

Joining in! Right now, our dates are August 21st to September 1st and we are staying at Pop! If I get a PIN or if there is an End of Summer promotion, I might upgrade to a moderate such as POFQ. Right now, we’re looking at about 8 WDW park days, 2 UO days and maybe even a Sea World day. I think we are doing the DDP, but my kids and I love trying new restaurants so much, I keep toying with the idea of DxDP. I’m constantly tweaking plans on my PTR. Does anyone else have a PTR going? I saw only one or two in this thread so far.

Was planning for Aug '14

but I have returned to work (part time but it's something ) and I am really hoping to make it back Aug '13.

It would just be a trip with me and DDs aa this past May trip with DBF was just too difficult. He's not a big Disney fan and I know he tried to put his best face forward, but it just didn't work.

Dates I'm looking at is anytime between 8/24-9/3. I have air miles that will expire Dec 2013 so I need to use them. Have enough only for 3 one ways and will have to buy 3 one ways. Whatever dates will be the least expensive within that time frame is when we will (hopefully) go.

Looking to stay either at POP, AOA or POFQ. Depending on how much I can save and what will be more budget friendly (AAA, room discount or free dining) is where we will stay.

DD4 keeps talking (and I mean everyday) about wanting to go back so I will do my best to fulfill her wish.

I officially booked my August 2013 trip with my TA today! I decided to do a cruise the days after my trip, since I was checking out the day one was leaving! I've never been on one before, and the DCL forum convinced me to try it. So, I'll be at All-Star Movies from 8/26-8/29, and sailing 8/29-9/1. I'll tour commando and then rest on the cruise!

We're in! We skipped this year and can't wait to go back. Our dates will be Aug. 22-31. The first 2 nights will be at Universal and the rest will be at POR. I'm hoping for free dining since we are all Disney adults and my boys eat like adults these days!
