Any non-DVC availability? I'm sure Swan & Dolphin are booked by now. How about a Value? Any availability there? Worst case would they consider one of the DTD good neighbor resorts? Allears and Mousesavers often have links with some great rates for those hotels.
There is room in WDW resorts. Just thought they might be able to save a little money renting Sandy's points. Even in August it has never been a problem in years past, actually.

Laura and Elin, Thank you both for your thoughts regarding the GM seminar. We are talking about our options.

There's a thread on the DVC boards discussing the issue of how it is becoming more difficult to get reservations.

http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2968580

I only read a few posts, but consensus seems to be "more members, less availability".

We've only been members for 6 years, but we too have noticed it becoming more difficult, especially the last couple years.

My 3 kids, DIL and I spent the day with my parents, celebrating their 83rd birthdays a week early! (I'll be at Fort Leonard Wood, MO for their birthdays 8/9 & 10. )

JD didn't come with us as he was at the Braves game...... in a Suite!

I have so much to do the next couple of days; then fly to MO Wednesday morning. I won't be around much the next couple weeks, but will check in when I can.

I am going to try to book the 10/14 Mexican Tequila Lunch for JD & myself, but if I don't get through right away 8/14, I won't be able to keep trying (or holding) so I'm prepared to be disappointed.

I booked the "Baked" Culinary Demo for Laura, JD and myself this morning!

Also booked the Las Rocas Wine Seminar for the girls and myself as well as the Neige Premium Beverage Seminar for them.

That is all we are doing extra, other than the Swolphin Classic and Wine Blending Seminar.

Less than 60 days now!!

It's lonely around here!!

AKL-IPO got DH & I the Mexican Tequila Lunch on 10/14 (Elin, you should have seen JD's face light up when I told him!! )

I'm hoping work doesn't get in the way, but I may have to adjust my arrival/departure dates by a day or 2. Hopefully I'll know soon (although UM likes to do things spur of the moment - their definition of soon and mine are waaaay different!! )


Happy Sunday!

Laura, I hope that your work comes together so you can go to all your events.

I'm hoping that the RA doctor can come up with something that will give Fran some relief, but will not inhibit her leg healing. I didn't bother to book anything, just in case we aren't able to go.

You do have a couple of fabulous cruises planned, right?! That should take some of the sting out of missing this year's F&WF. (although I still don't know why you couldn't sneak a weekend in here or there (10/12-14)........... )

I will definitely be there 10/7 through 10/14!

Alison, I am so sorry that Fran is still having health issues. We'll keep prayers coming that relief is just a doctor visit away.

I hope it works out so work won't interfere with your vacation! My BFF and family are now flying down instead of driving. So I changed my flight to 10/6 and may just leave it there even if they cancel. I thought about cancelling part of my week as well and flying down 10/10, but if I'm going to lose the points to holding status, I might as well just come down anyway. My fingers are still crossed for them, but it's not looking too good.

I'm also sorry that Fran is still having issues, hopefully they will clear up enough that you'll be able to get away...you guys deserve it with everything you've been through.

No cruises until feb.... But we will be flying on the 13th of Oct to see our families in Texas. So I wished I could come down, but I will have to wait until next year or the next...
