Team August was alot of fun this year (2012) and even though we're kind of quiet right now, trust me once the holidays are gone and we start thinking and chatting about ADR's things will get FUN!

I am unofficially here...

Originally, our 2013 trip was going to be over Spring Break.

Then I moved it to October 2013, for MNSSHP and my girls have a short school break during that month. In the end - they would have missed 3-4 days of school.

Recently, my oldest dd had to miss 4 days of school... The home work was awful - which caused me to rethink the whole "missing school" idea.

Which brought me to summer vacation, and August.

I have determined that I will belong to every Disney Facebook Group for every month of 2013 by the time I get our trip booked.

So, these are my next "pending dates"... Aug 19-30 at SoG (Shades of Green)...

D~

Hi Team August We have two rooms at the POFQfor Aug 25 to Sept 2. This year taking 2 cousins with us. We are on the BB offer, do you think it will be possible to add 1 more cousin to our room and have them included in the bounce back offer? Right now we are 2 adults and 4 children, the other cousin will be a teen adult, 18 yrs old. I told her I will let her know soon. I just don't want to attempt to call Disney and be disapointed. I guess I'm a big chicken. Looking for a possitive response
Thanks all

Welcome new friends!

@4disneygenerations, you should have no problem adding her to the BB, especially since you already have 2 rooms. I added my sister a few weeks after I got back and there was no issues at all. I'll add you to the resort list!

@DMGeurts Would you like me to add you to the list also?

Good Morning Team August!

@4disneygenerations.... As Sarah already said, Disney has no problem adding people to reservations (and since it's a package they get the BB offer too!). As long as it doesn't put you over the room occupancy limits (which it doesn't because you have two rooms)

Is it August yet?

287 days til we hit the road to Disney...Oh that seems like an ETERNITY!!!

I made an offhand comment about trying to squeeze in a quick roadtrip, couple days at Disney to do MVMCP then head home. I was vetoed, Apparently the silly gooses want presents instead

Hi all my peeps!!! Yep, I looked on my countdown on my phone and we have 283 more days until our August Adventure. I just can't wait to see the look on my family's faces when we end up at POR instead of CBR! So far, so good as for keeping that a secret! And I just can't believe Sarah's gooses want presents instead of a quick trip to Disney. I personally think they are crazy! Fortunately, since Victoria wants to go to Playlist Live in Orlando in March, I get at least a little taste of Disney, even though it won't be the parks themselves. And she knows presents will be very few since we are going down. I am planning on going to the Poly for Wishes on the beach and the Electric Water Pageant. We've never seen that, so that will be cool. Now it's a matter of figuring out the logistics of how to take the the busses from Caribe Royale (if we really do end up staying there...ugh!) to the Disney property and then just jump on Disney busses! Good thing I've done this a time or two so I kinda know what I am doing. Of course we'll be doing Downtown Disney!! I'm so excited, but again the flights are just increasing! I did find what I think is a good price -- $386 per person round trip. It's the best I can find right now. I'm hoping either AirTran or Southwest will have a sale, but usually Portland, Maine is not one of the hubs that's on sale. And SW still only flies out of Manchester, NH until late April. I'm seriously thinking of using our points to get one round trip flight down, but then I was hoping to save the points for our August trip. Am I boring you guys? I'm sorry. Guess I just felt like sharing!

You know Ann, I'm starting to think I somehow made a mistake along the way in teaching them priorities!

Fingers crossed for you finding some airline discounts! We're driving down when we go in August. As much as I love flying, we do love our road trips. Also, my sister will be with us and splitting the driving will be such a nice thing, I'm used to 18.5 hours straight by myself when I head to Minnesota Scary thing is, Kyler mentioned driving some too I'm not sure if I'm ready to consider that just yet!!!

Well Thanksgiving is coming which means the holiday season will be rushing on through and it will be January before you know it!!! And let me tell you My DH and I already have all of our meals picked and ready to go for February! I am a little sad because I really wanted to do Bistro de Paris this year but from what i'm reading they are making it casual but it's still a twofer on the meal plan so I think i'll pass it up this year and see what the people are saying. I'm also gonna miss the California Grill BUT we are trying some great new places for us like Jiko the Cooking Place and Artist point! Both of which we hear are very romantic and delicious. Any thoughts my fellow August friends?

Although I have never eaten at AP, Jiko is a nice place. Have you thought about Citricos? or Narcoosee's, I loved both of these places.

I don't even know how to begin planning our ADRs! Will we know which parks will be open late for dining prior to the reservations having to be made? We definitely want to eat at Be Our Guest and Cinderella's Royal Table, but other than that I'm not sure. I think we would like to try the Wishes Dessert Party and also a Fantasmic package, would love some input!

Can I join? We will be at POR week of August 5. This is our first trip since 2007! DH is a teacher so we always travel in summer. We will be celebrating our 14th anniversary and DD's first trip. She'll be a few weeks shy of 3 YO. So excited!

Anyone know when we can expect EMH to be released?

I see talk of bounceback deals, never heard of that but I am intrigued. Might be nice to go again for our 15th. How does that work?
