Can you give me your secrets so I can use them on Mark? Although, I did get my three day cruise last year extended to that and a five day Disney stay.

Sounds very similar to my training program!! (although I do clean my own bathroom! Yes, separate bathrooms - one of the first rules of our marriage!! )

Hmmmmmm I think I got the ole bait and switch here! Fran started off doing the dishes and then got sick so I've been doing them for about 14 years until just about a month ago. I don't mind watering plants, but we pay people to do the rest of the cleaning. However where I really had the wool pulled over my eyes was that I never thought I would be on my hands and knees cleaning vacant apartments! For over a decade all I had to do was deposit the rent checks in the bank, all of a sudden in the last year I've had to do slave labor, as I certainly don't get paid!

Sounds like a great trip! You're bouncing around just as many times as we are (if not more) in the same time frame!

Alison, multi-split stays are the only way I travel to WDW anymore!!

I don't think I could handle staying in one place for more than 4 or 5 days!!




"Separate bathrooms" is my #1 tip for peace and harmony in a marriage! (we're going on 30 years; the last 29 with separate bathrooms! )

We've only done two "single resort" stays and I just don't like them that much. Feels like you didn't get quite as much of a vacation only staying at one place. So many people complain about changing resorts, but I find it pretty easy and it feels like you had more than one trip!

In our next house we'll have separate bathrooms, unfortunately we can't add another one where we live (we have ours and then there is the cat's bathroom for us if we are desperate), but we have definitely have learned, we need two bathrooms! That's why Kidani and BLT are great to stay at!

First and for #30!!! And you're doing the opposite of what I may be doing. Depends if I go down a week earlier with a BFF and her family. It all hinges on how her DH is doing as he was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer last year. He's always wanted to take his boys to WDW so I said we could use my points and go down for a few days. Fingers crossed that they make this trip!

10/6-10/12 - AKV Jambo
10/12-10/14 - homeless still - BW, BC or SD
10/14-10/20 - (or 21 if I can pull it off) BWV.
