    This is a very subtle difference. When you say "We'll have so much fun" you are positive in mood and pretty confident that your suggestion will be acted on. If you say "We'd have so much fun" you are more cautious about whether your suggestion will be accepted and acted upon.

    Let's all go to the bar together! We'll have so much fun! (You are assuming that you are all going. Not conditional).
    I'm pretty sure you've asked a similar question before. (It might have been someone else).
    'Would' is always going to involve a conditional (perhaps implied) in this context. 'Will' is not.
