I wish we were only 6 hours away. I think I heard from where I am in MD it is 12-18 hours by car which is too long for us. It is a 2 hour plane ride which is great. How often do you get to Disney?

I actually grew up close to Maryland in Great Falls, VA. My Grandparents took us to Disney most summers. Was a blast. Now, since my wife hates Disney, we only go every few years. In 2010 we got lucky and went twice.

What about you?

I was there twice as a kid and have been 3 times as an adult. How long have you been in FL?

I will be in WDW from 9th - 15th December 2013.

I hear that this is Pop Warner week. Is this likely to impact crowd levels in the parks?

I agree with the previous poster. From what I have read, the parks are really not effected much by them, but you will see more and more of them as the week progresses.

I hear good and bad stories about them in the resorts. Enough so that I changed our resort reservation at one point. Now, it is starting to appear that we will be there the week prior.

New to the boards and we booked our Christmas 2014 WDW vacation recently! I'm soooo excited and a little nervous with the crowds that are there, but it is my dream vacation...4 nights at GF and a 3 night cruise on the Dream!!!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. For the most part I think we are all under the year mark for our trip now.

And here pretty soon, we can say our trip is "this year" instead of "next year".
