August 2013 Adventurers

Are you planning a trip anywhere in August 2013? If so, share your dates and plans with your fellow travelers here! Here's some suggestions to get you started. You can copy and paste it into your post or rearrange it as you see fit!

Date: (when you'll be there, arrival to departure)
Adventurers: (who's going with you, their ages, and their experience)
Resort/Hotel: (where you are staying)
Celebration: (why you are going, even if just for R & R)
Meetings: (places you'll be at if others want to join you, plus ways fellow travelers can spot you, such as wearing a PassPorter Pin, etc.)

Feel free to post even if your plans aren't firm -- you're always welcome to return and update us when you've made more plans!

When you return from your trip, we encourage you to share your adventure with us in one of our Trip Report forums!

Last week of August

My family is going to WDW the last week of August. In 2011 free dining was offered then. We are going with our friends, they haven't been to disney in years They have 3 kids 15,12 & 10. My husband and i have 4, 22,20,18,16. I have 2 weeks on my time share im going to lose if i don't use them, but i did love free dining. Do i hold out and wait? I called dining and they said they don't know when free will be offered and any new offers wouldn't be available til the recent one is done mid June. Not sure which way to go!

We are still in the planning stage but looking at Aug 20-30 or somewhere around there.
We want to stay in AoA.
This won't be Disney inclusive. We hope to get to Busch Gardens and go and see The Gator Boys too.
We are a family of 4: dh 48, me 47, ds 12 and dd 7.

Adventurers: Me, DH, DS (13) and DD (18 months). We have quite the age range to manage!
Resort/Hotel: POFQ
Celebration: DD's first trip and our anniversary

Our last visit to WDW was on our honeymoon at POFQ in Aug 2009. It's so strange to be going back the next visit at the same time to the same hotel, but with 2 kids. We've never traveled with a toddler like this before so we're kind of flying by the seat of our pants!
