Glad to see there are others out there already thinking about 2014!!

My BF and I have gone every year in September since 2009. This year we're going to Disneyland in December instead. But I'm already thinking about our 2014 WDW trip. We are thinking of changing things up and going March 1-8. We are from Washington DC and he's a big baseball fan so we're hoping we can coincide the trip with an Atlanta Braves spring training game against our Nationals. That schedule probably won't come out until November so we'll be planning before then and hoping for the best.

Also hoping for free dining at that time! We've always gotten it in September but it looks like they didn't offer it Jan-Mar this year like they usually do so I'm not sure they'll do it next year. The restaurant planning and eating is such a large part of our enjoyment of the trip,our trip dates may hinge on when they offer it. Just can't afford to pay out of pocket for all those meals we've gotten used to enjoying!

So, it looks like I'll be planning all our restaurants so I can book them 180 days out and hoping for the best. We're thinking of upgrading to the Deluxe Plan so we can finally try some of the signature restaurants!

Happy Planning Everyone!!

Deb

Unfortunately no free dining was offered to the general public this March. They did have good room discounts but nothing with dining. People seem to think that Disney didn't "need" it because of the Fantasyland Expansion and the food kiosks added to Flower and Garden festival.

Unfortunately, no free dining this spring! I guess they had something called "stay, play and dine" but I'm not sure what kind of discount it was. We have no kids so the kids stay free kind of thing is no help to us. I know a lot of people hate the free dining promotion but we absolutely love it as it's let us try so many of the great restaurants!

Guys, I am having to change our dates to November 16 - 22, 2014 to better accommodate our family. I am having to look at the positive side of being able to see Christmas decorations and stop thinking about not being able to go early in 2014. I wish you all the best in planning.

Booking March 2014?

I was looking into prices for a late March early April 2014 trip. When I entered my dates on Disney's site, it shows there are no hotels available for this time. Are they just not taking reservations yet? If not, does anyone know when I can find prices for these dates? Thanks!

This site may be a little confusing but I used this to see where my time would fit - Disney room prices.

It appears the your stay (if before April 11) will fit into the Peak Season.

Then I looked here to see what those prices were for my room this year (knowing that DIsney IS going to raise prices) - 2013 prices.


Here's my trip as an example - I am there during regular season next year. I am looking at Caribbean Beach Resort. Since I am booking standard, it looks to be 188 on weekdays and $213 on weekends.

I hope this helps!

Thanks that really does help. The crowd calendar was very interesting to look at. I might just wait for summer to get the exact prices though. Thanks again.

That's a better plan than my "just guessing" at it! Also Disney sometimes provides a discount during those months that helps with the price.

Nothing hard booked yet, but fingers crossed for 3/1 - 3/11 for next year! Probably going to end up at POR or AoA suites IF we don't buy into DVC this Summer! Hoping for DVC though

Yay!! Nice to see you around again!

I love how you call it "MY" June group. I don't want the powers that be mad at me though. It's not mine. I just hang out there!!

AKL!! How nice! We are staying there in November for Thanksgiving break in a studio at Jambo. It's a lovely resort!

I will add your dates to our list.

Does anyone know when we can start booking for March? I'm sure we have to wait until they jack up the prices for the next year but not sure when that will be. I think we'll go ahead and put down the payment for our trip so we can make dining reservations at 180 days out, and then cross my fingers for free dining!!
