This will be our first trip that late in January. We typically go the first two weeks of the month and not had problems with crowds. We are trying to get the most out of buying APs and pushing our January 2014 trip back a few weeks and then going the begnining onf January 2015. Is this wise to do or with the tour group crowds get higher later in January?
I"ve been 3 times in January ~ twice the last week, and once the first week. The ones at the end of the month had lower crowds than the one at the beginning of January. The only concern about your date is MLK holiday. I haven't looked at the calendar, but are your dates over MLK week-end? If so, I could see it being more crowded than you are used to.

HERE is a good thread I found on transportation from AoA to BC.
How unfortunate.
Thank you, though.

I had a bit of Disney happiness yesterday.
My birthday is 2/22 and DH had said he would take me to Disney on Ice and we bought the tickets yesterday. So now I know he is really going.

I got a Southwest rewards cc last year to get the bonus points so we could fly for free on our last trip. At the airport in December, I upgraded my card to the premium card. I noticed yesterday that both cards still show as active online. So I called. The lady on the phone said the person at the airport didnt upgrade me, they signed me up for a whole new account. I was a little annoyed until she told me she could straighten it out and I would get 25,000 sign up points. So now I already have enough points for us to fly for free and I can switch back to using my Disney Visa to earn those points. I was very excited.

I feel like there's too much we want to do at MK over two days... basically everything minus maybe 5 attractions.

I feel the same way!! We always do 2 days at MK and I think it is great. We do everything we want, and some things we do again. I'm already worried about how we are going to do everything with the new Fantaslyland stuff. A part of me wants to add a 3rd MK day, but I think my DH would freak, lol.

Well one day we'll have CP @ 8:05 AM, then the other day we'd do RD... I think it'll be doable.

I think Magic KIngdom will still be doable in two days (with lower crowds). However, we may make a list of things we are willing to skip (just in case).

We'll be going in mid-May... hm. We're going to be skipping roughly five/six attractions, though. Good luck on your planning!

Same here. We've already planning on sacrificing a full day at Epcot in exchange for a half day at Epcot and a second full MK day. Even then it seems like we're not going to have enough time.

Yes it will be over MLK week, whichi is January 20, 2014. That was another reason to push our annual January trip back so DD only missed 4 days of school instead of 5. I think we are going to give it a try and just avoid MK on MLK. We typically do Epcot on a Monday anyhow.

On Line Payment

I asked on another thread but really got no reply so I thought I would check and ask folks here. I am unable to make payments to the online site.
I went through all the steps, checked the old site as well as the new site. I am able to see the reservation info and balance owed but the payment link never shows up? I read one entry on another thread that thought it was r/t room only reservations and then I wondered if it was because the reservations are for 2014? Has anyone here tried or has been sucessful in making an online payment?

We will also be at WDW during this time and went last year over MLK weekend also. It was more crowded but not too bad although on some other threads people mentioned that this year was MUCH busier than years past.

Planning Trip 2014

Am sooo excited to be planning a trip in February 2014, hopefully 13th-17th. We will be coming from NC and plan on staying at the value resorts. Still going back and forth on driving vs flying. We took the train in 2010 and would LOVE to do that again due to cheapest option and no complaints from the little man of the house, but the 6'4 hubbs didn't like it . Flights that I found with in the last year or so round trip was 900 to 1000 dollars, crazy if you ask me!!! If you have any better prices please share or send me a private message to make sure I get it. Glad that I found this forum to share the excitement!!! Have a great day!!!
