I just made a $450.00 payment that brings my September 2014 total down to $2600.00. One step closer. I can't wait for next Disney to release next years vacation packages so I can change my reservation to the actual dates.

I'll get you added to the Oct. and Nov. lists. If your dates end up changing, just post and I'll update. Where are you planning to stay? Are you planning to do MNSSHP?

If you have questions, jump on in and ask ... and join in the conversation!
Yup! We're hoping to fit in MNSSHP, and the Food and Wine.

My choice is POFQ at the moment.

Woo-hoo! Congrats on making a payment!! I ended up buying Wicked tickets with my Disney deposit money, so I havent booked my "fake" trip yet. Plus I couldnt decide which resort to book.

That's a huge payment! Congrats on being a whole lot closer to being paid off!

Hopefully!

I would LOVE to be able to go in February 2014, preferably the week of 2/23. Unfortunately, as a recent college grad, my future is VERY uncertain at the moment! I have no clue where I'll be working, what I'll have for vacations, and what my finances will be like! But if it does happen, I'd likely be going with my sister, brother-in-law, niece (who will be 2) and my two closest friends. We'd stay at Pop.

Hiya! Once you get your plans in place and decide you can go, make sure you post with your information and I can get you added to the list for February. Meanwhile, you are welcome to stay and chat with us while you get things figured out.

Second Week vs Fourth Week in January

Had planned on our next WDW vacation to start January 11th however, after reading the forums we are wondering if it would be better to change to later in the month to avoid the Marathon and MLK weekends? Also - I have seen some postings where folks have mentioned that if any discounts (room, FD, play/dine) occur, they may occur later in January whereas Marathon and MLK weekend seem to be busy times. I understand that this is speculation at this point.

In addition, if we do decide to change our dates (we have room only now and were planning to add the package when avail this summer) will we be charged a fee? Would this be affected if we change the date later when the packages come out vs changing now? My family is worred if we wait until booking the package - rooms might no longer be avail at POFQ.

Any suggestions or advice greatly appreciated.

We'll be visiting in October 2014. Dates TBD. We are also traveling with a large group and possibly ending with a 3 night DCL cruise Thinking of split staying in Wilderness Lodge(with DH and DD) and also an off property villa with my parents, brothers, nephew, etc.

Will update when i learn more...

Hi all! We are booked for January 7-14th and POFQ. However, I am a little skeptical about marathon weekend. Anyone have any thoughts or advice? The weekend before is after New Years, we did that this year and it was SOO busy with Florida schools still being off for Xmas break. If anyone has any advice please let me know! We are both in college so January is the only time we can really go. If we don't go that date in January looks like we are taking a year off : (

Hi! to the group! Glad you decided to join us.

I'll get you added to the list. As far as going during marathon weekend, I've never been that time of year, so I'm useless as far as advice goes. Hopefully someone on the thread has been that time of year who can be of help to you!

Meanwhile, feel free to join in the conversation!

My biggest pet peeve is that the room only and package reservation systems are separate so if you make a room only reservation the deposit doesn't transfer over as far as I understand. I would be wary of making payments on it until it was switched over. Whenever I've had to do this for guests (I'm a Travel Agent) they have been refunded the room-only deposit and had to put down the $200 package deposit. But with the popularity of some room types I know people don't want to miss out on the particular room so I guess holding the room is worth it!
