That is probably what we'll do. We started out booked for November, switched to December, and will probably actually go in January... Or June... You never know!!!

You could definitely do that! We were actually booked in Sept, then got a 30% off code for Dec, so we did the switch-a-roo

I'd choose Dec or Jan over June any day! We are in TX & I have to deal with heat & humidity enough

We went in Nov 2010 (It was Thanksgiving time) and we nearly BURNT up! I designed long sleeved shirts for us to wear on turkey day & a few other days, and we nearly died. We are going Dec 4th this year & I'm PRAYING for cooler weather! It's my dream to wear a *jacket* at WDW.

It's certainly addicting! We were hooked the first time my DD (then 6) and my DS (almost 3) went. During Wishes, Bailey looked up at me and said, "Momma, is this a dream? This is the BEST day of my life!" It's been my favorite place ever since.

Did you see my pm from the other thread? I saw where you wanted me to pm you about a trip, so I did Hope to talk to you soon!!!

Don't wish too hard! We were there 12/10 during that crazy cold spell!!!!!! We wore winter coats, hats, scarfs, gloves... and nearly FROZE!!!!
I still remember DS13 and me being the only ones crazy enough to do EMH at MK one night when it was below freezing with a icy wind blowing.... That teenager and I snuggled up so tight waiting for the bus that we looked like one person!!!

But, we still rode Splash Mtn. with our coats zipped up!

Okay, let me rephrase that! I would like to wear a "LIGHT" jacket while we're there. I'd rather not freeze! (Of course, 50 degrees feels freezing to me!) And you're one of those crazy one's who'll ride SM no matter what. I think I'd have to pass.

Me and the family are hoping to go right after NYE. So while it would be amazing if free dining was offered, I doubt it's going to happen. The week of Jan 2 - 12 is when we want to go, and that's JUST before marathon weekend. If Free Dining comes in Jan. it would probably be afterwards. Oh well.

We don't mind the cold at all. Coming from Quebec, Canada i doubt very much that any cold spell in Florida, could be any colder than a cold spell here. We may even be walking around in shorts, while the locals bundle up. hahahaha. Jus kiddin. If we do go in Jan we'll have some emergency warm clothes, in order to deal with freak cold spells.
