No flights booked yet, because they aren't on special yet; hope they are on special soon as the waiting is killing me! (We will also be going to Denver, as DH used to live there and we are fans of the Broncos in the NFL, and Las Vegas).

This will be our 2nd trip to DL as a family, tho DH and myself have been many times previously.

Never been to Disney World, but we plan to go there in 2015 (our plan is a US/ Disney trip every 2 years).
Welcome Kristin. It sounds like it's going to be a great trip.

My son will also be holding a birthday (6th) while we're in America and we've decided to make it a double birthday. One on the day he turns 6 in NZ and one on the day he turns 6 in America. Not often you have an excuse to have 2 birthdays in one year. just can't wait to see how excited he's going to be

I just don't think I could wait that long before I booked and paid for anything. I think I'd go crazy. Either that, or I'd change my mind half a dozen times, I wouldn't save hard enough and we'd probably end up going to a country closer to home instead.
Now that most of my flights are booked, my cruise deposit is paid, and my travel insurance is sorted, I'm committed and well past the point of no return.

Yay! So excited!
9 1/2 months just doesn't seem that far away when I've been dreaming of taking my son to Disney pretty much since he was born.

Welcome Kristen! My boys will be 6,4 and 2 when we go and we are doing Vegas and Disneyland too. We are also going to the US for a 'big trip' in 2015 when we hope to do WDW, DL and a Disney cruise

lol. i just wait for the promo fares to come out.. approx $550 - $600 each way, so only approx $1200 return. right now, vaustralia is showing $1200 each way for our dates, so i prefer to wait until approx 5 mths before..

just put down the deposit on our 2 x 7a guarantee staterooms, plus transfers plus overnight accom at mco hyatt we're officially going on this cruise

Yay Alicia. We will have to catch up for lunch or breakfast one day onboard.
I see you settled on a verandah room. Cool, good for you! Did they work out quite a bit cheaper being guarantee?

$1200 each way is horrendous. Does that include the domestic US flight? $1200 return meanwhile is a great deal. I'll have my fingers crossed for you.

Ditto! Once I have them locked in, the money is gone and there's no turning back! Being the most expensive part of our trip by far, I want it done and dusted.

So i got an email from the TA this morning. Rhe deposit i paid was for our cancelled disneyland trip not the current cruise. His email was along the lines of 'i assume you want this on your cruise deposit? If so, reply and confirm'

Omg. Lol. I just hope that i dont lose my ressie and my rooms

Gty status is different to igt/ogt/vgt status. With gty status you pay the deposit now only and the total price is based on what your category would have cost if you had got your room allocation then. There is a small risk that your staterooms may be separate, on different levels etc or you may be upgraded. You find out your room # usually when you get your cruise docs.

If you book igt/ogt/vgt rates they are cheaper but have to be fully prepaid and are not cancellable or refundable. You dont usually find out room #s til a few weeks before sailing

My favourite is the goblet of fire and one scene reminds me so much of a scene in the Beowulf poem! Seamus Heaney does a bilingual edition of it - I've read it in English and the original old/middle English.

I've booked into the BCV. 2- 9 October.

Now I just need to work out when I'm leaving Oz and when I'm coming home. Need to find out the school schedule for next year! Hopefully I'll have that sorted by the end of this week or next.

Yay! I love the look of the Beach Club. You've stayed there before haven't you?
