The possibilities are endless. I was also thinking that with Gabby starting Jr High this fall it might be more difficult for me to be the negligent mom who allows her to miss school for vacation and may have to go during more peak seasons.

Tell me about SSR.......

Isn't the current promo for current owners, buy 100 points and get a "free" 3 days cruise? I would like to score during a great promo. I know we'll need more points. I have spent our current 160 about 50x in my head already!!!

I was a little freaked too but they were doing something for a Danskin race taking place so what was happening in the pic was that the cars were having to merge up ahead so traffic appeared far worse than it was.

[/COLOR]

yep, those DVC points add up quickly when you have to do all your vacations in the summer time.

Although we own at SSR we haven't been there and don't plan to go anytime soon. We just bought there b/c the points were cheaper and planned to just use those points at the other resorts at the 7 month mark.

If you don't take the cruise, then you can get $14/off per point as an add-on. ($98/pt for BLT for 100 pts or more). If you do 50-99 pts it's $106/pt.

If less than 50 pts, then it's $112/pt.

But double-check with your guide!

You are going to love OKW!!!! Tell me what you booked there.....
They've been to MK before but I don't think they've been to any of the other parks....I don't think they'll add on much more as Boyd can be a bit stubborn (must be a McDonald trait)

I think there's such a thing as ordering too early too. Someone said the time limit is 60 days. I'm 27 days out now, plus I'll have 30 days from the end of my trip to upload photos. You have the right to develop all the pictures on the CD. Since DH won't be there to take any pictures of me and DD isn't the greatest photographer yet I think this will be only way you'll be able to tell I went.
Thanks for that, it looks like a really good idea. I'll maybe see how the finances are panning out and buy it two or three weeks before we go (if I can last out that long)

Well, they may love me, but I'll let them form their own opinions on Nate. And the kids will not be coming this time. Even though I think Emma and Niamh would get along fabulously, Nate & I would like a little break from our little s.
Excellent news, looks like you'll be joining me in a wee Jakey's tour of the World. I agree that Niamh and Emma would probably get on like a house on fire but I also think it could be a partnership forged by the Devil LOL and if you guys are needing a wee break from the kiddliewinks that ain't what you need

Smashin' thanks for the heads up Jo. We kind of thought that we knew where the Wishes area was and to be honest we sat at the Plaza the last time we went and had a great view so we may just do that again and forget the prefered viewing area.

Disney messed up our initial paperwork so we still haven't closed. I am waiting for the new paperwork that has our names correct. I am sort of thinking about adding on like 20 points now, only a little more needed for the down and the payment barely moves. I will call my guide.

So you own SSR and BLT? Have you ever had an issue booking at the 7 month mark?

Thinking about it is an understatement. I spent 2 full hours last night, after the kids went to bed, planning different trips and different point options!

So do your co-workers give you the "look" when you go all "Disney" on them?

Some do, some don't. My boss is actually a huge Mickey fan. Had me get her embroidered Ears on our last trip. Our psychiatrist (I work on a locked psych unit) was quizzing me about the reasons I Disney but he's a Freudian at heart so I don't pay much attention to him.

We own at SSR and AKV. I'm thinking about adding-on at BLT...

We booked BCV at 7 months and AKV at 11 months.

Our next trip is in November and we got in at BLT just over 6 months. However, our priority was to go in December, and that was completely booked at 6+ months. In fact all resorts except for OKW and SSR were booked for early December (1BR)

Love me some Sonic at happy hour. We send someone from work for this. It's called our "Afternoon Delight".
Afternoon Delight.....love it!

The all-night drive down just flies by! Coming home is another story!

Hello back!! I'm glad I found you guys again.

Yeah, she's a sweetie! Of course at this age, all babies are cuties.

If you take a quick dive into my PTR for Nov below, the very first post has a pic of Elie as a newborn.

Wow! That's awesome!!!! Aren't we always thinking about adding on?


OKW and SSR are the biggest resorts by far so that makes total sense that they would fill slower.

We have 160 points to use by Nov 2010 so we are thinking about Zihua, Mexico in Feb 2010 or DH is doing the Ford Ironman in St. George, Utah in May 2010 and we could use it there because we'll be there 5 days though I really don't want to! Can you imagine the story: I used my first set of DVC points in St. George, Utah?
