Can you book 499 days from the start of your trip or is it 499 days from the last day?

I'm trying to figure out when I can book!

Where did you find the 2013 schedule for Pop Warner?

I wouldn't be so sure of this. The more I read the more I believe they will be there the week of Dec. 8-14.

Pop Warner does typically go the first full week of December. However being that the first weekend is part of the holiday weekend (which does not typically coincide with the first weekend in December), I believe that this will not hold true for several reasons...Number one, the calendar year for November/December 2013 exactly mirrors the calendar year for 2002 (Thanksgiving on Nov. 28) so I looked at historical Pop Warner dates for 2002 and their dates for that year were Dec. 8 - 14. Second, I saw someone else said that they always have some big competition Thanksgiving weekend also, so there is little chance they would travel that weekend. Also, Disney is very crowded that weekend following Thanksgiving usually, so I can't imagine Disney would agree to discount block rooms for Pop Warner during a high-crowd time period like that, as it would be actually a money losing thing for them. Pop Warner always takes place during a slow week for Disney.

Hope that information helps someone...it's still good to be flexible because you never know for SURE until the dates are in black & white, but my deductive reasoning skills tell me that it's a safe bet Pop Warner week for 2013 will be Dec 8 - 14.

I'm thinking like you on this and I really hope it's true, but if not I'll make the best of it anyway it will be 4 years since I've been.

After careful consideration, my DH and I have decided to change our dates to 11/9/13 to 11/16/13. This way we can still see Christmas decorations, go to MVMCP, hopefully get FD, and miss December crowds (since Thanksgiving is late and then Pop Warner week occurs. I hope all of you have a magical trip in December ..... Happy Planning!!!

That isn't a bad idea! When do the decorations normally go up and MVMCP start? I always assumed those didn't happen until the week of Thanksgiving.

We were considering changing our days to these exactly but when I started reading-- it just will not do for me.

See, going for the holiday season next year is a chance of a lifetime and I will never get to do it again. (honey works retail and can not take off in Dec. Next year is an exception because it is my first and only to do disney at the holiday season,.

Going in Novemeber I would miss out on the Santas in the countries which is a biggies on my list. And the santas do not arrive until after thanksgiving.

My mistake, the website I saw it on said 2012. Looks like we will be spending the extra money to stay at WL then
