~countdown to april 2013 ~

Is it April yet?????

So, I wanted to start this thread for everyone planning on a WDW trip in April 2013!! One of the best parts (and hardest parts) about planning a trip to WDW is the anticipation!!!!

Here's hoping this thread provides a place for us all to count down the next 8 months until April...and to be able to bounce questions off of each other and maybe set up some Dis Meets!!!

We just returned from a wonderful 11 day trip to WL CL and really can't wait to get back!!!!

Here's our stats:
Me-34 DH-35, and our DD's (who will be 6 and 8 on our next trip)!!!
This will be the 9th trip for DH and I and the 4th trip for our Disney-Loving daughters!!!!

Our Dates: 4/20/13 - 4/28/13
Resort: Polynesian Club Level
Celebrations: DD8 Birthday!!! (she'll be 9 right after we leave and is currently the only one of us who hasn't had her birthday at WDW)

So, how about the rest of you??? Who else will be there in April???

I'm so excited! Let the countdown begin!!!!

I am going in April 2013 too and am ridiculously excited. It's my third trip to WDW however it has been over 15 years since my last trip so this may as well be my first time.

It is just my boyfriend and I travelling and it is his first time.

Arrive on the 23rd, staying at Port Orleans French Quarter :-)

How exciting!!! WDW after so many years! You will find sooooooo much different! And how wonderful that you get to show BF the World!!!

POFQ looks like a gorgeous resort! We definitely plan on staying there someday!

Hi everyone! I'm Kris. My husband 54, me 42, and our granddaughter Gabi 2 will be coming April 13-27th and staying at Art of Animation. I am excited to have others to share plans with as hubby only gets excited when it is time to actually go. We will be celebrating a first visit for all of us, our anniversary on 4/19 and my husband's 55th birthday on 4/23. Wanting to know if you think 2 weeks is too long for a 2 year old as long as we have afternoon naps and early evenings? Looking forward to counting down together!

Congrats on the upcoming anniversary!!! We just celebrated our 10 year at WDW last month! Best.trip.ever!!!

I personally would love to do 2 weeks at some point. Our trip was 11 days last month, so almost there, and we could have done the extra 3 days and been fine.
I think it allows you to really slow down and enjoy yourself, instead of needing a vacation from your vacation!!!

Art of Animations looks awesome! We'll have to try it out someday.

Glad we have another person to countdown with!!!

wait you changed from the Poly? To where? WL?

I wish I was going in April. We originally were for Spring Break but due to my DH's schedule we had to move to May but my oldest will have a birthday on that trip now so it makes it special. Can't win them all I guess
