Sounds like fun(and it sounds like my logic, anything to get and extra day at WDW)

rusafee
Hang in there on getting those pts., it will happen if you stick with it

blossomz
Have fun running! Couldnt think of a better place to do it. T did the half marathon twice, its a very rewarding experience(she tells me)

Ink
You got me intrigued on Vonage. Google their reviews, it may be enlightening.

Luv said I forgot part of the story (though it's more of an epilogue, actually), so here goes. For Luv's first trip with me to WDW we stayed at VWL, and she was smitten. . .with me AND the Lodge . The intimacy of the WL, in general, and the Villas, in particular, was especially romantic. Further, though she is a Disney veteran with numerous trips over 20+ years, she had never stayed in a DVC suite. She loved it! Shortly after that trip, we began to look into VWL contracts and bought one a couple of years ago in late April. We wanted to do a Christmas holiday trip (I'd never been at Christmas), and though we had to go on a waitlist, it came through for us less than four months out. Serendipitous, indeed.

So, VWL possesses emotional heft to us that other resorts don't. It's part of the fabric of our relationship, so much so that we'll tie the knot there in July. And that, as Paul Harvey would say, is the rest of the story.
This is beautiful. My DH and myself came to WDW for our honeymoon, and we have been back every year since. I can't help but feel like that is why it holds such a special place in our hearts. It was where we came when we were the happiest we have ever been. And those feelings come back every time still.

Congratulations on your wedding in July! When we were just at the Lodge a few weeks ago we saw wedding photos being done in front of the waterfall, and I almost couldn't get a "Congratulations" out to the couple, because I was so teary. It was just so beautiful.

Hmm... my giraffe is gone too. Need to do some tracking here...
ETA - my moose is hosted over on photobucket so he's OK, but the giraffe who's MIA was hosted here on the DIS. It looks like someone moved or renamed the photo directory hosting the groupie icons. Time for me all my icons, includint the giraffe on photobucket with my moose.

ETA to the ETA - caught a new giraffe, and he brought home a zebra buddy feel free to copy the image location of my moose - I have no intention of deleting or moving him.
Can you tell me where to find the Zebra? I always have such a hard time finding the mascots. I'll add Moosie someday, but I'll wait until it's official and we own there

Oh yeah, try telling Mr Muush that he is not pronouncing it correctly (drives me nuts, I work with ESL students!).
ESL, like sign language?

Wait... I'm guessing maybe no since it's a pronounciation thing.

And I agree about the pronuncing of words. My DH says the word 'warm' like, w-ARM (like the body part) I make fun of him every time. I think it just causes him to say it more....

JT - read through the thread and see you've had a difficult week. Know that there are those that care about you and for you. We're here for you - so vent away. I hope this week will be better for you.

blossom - Good luck on the race! Let us know how you do. Just to participate would be exciting!

WELCOME rusafee1183! Always a pleasure to welcome a new Groupie to our little corner of the Dis! So nice to have you join us!

Can't help you Ink about Vonage. Know absolutely nothing about the company. Hope Dynaguy finds some good and useful information for you.

And keliblue so nice to see you again! Your trips sound fabulous. Mums the word about your 'secret' trip. Give our greetings to Mark.

Aulani is a mere 12 days away. While I'm overwhelmed that we'll be going, just a little apprehensive about the construction going on. DDad brought the suitcases out today.....

Thanks! We'll actually get married at the Lodge (4th floor outdoor terrace), then we'll honeymoon on the Dream (our second cruise on that ship). No doubt, we'll have pics taken in front of the waterfall, as well as many other areas around the Lodge and at other resorts.

Sorry to hear about the points, but they'll come. As for the cruise to Alaska, I lived there for four years (Anchorage area) and loved it. Though I hated to leave, there's no way I could afford to go back and live there now. Have a great cruise!

well, Groupies, I'm switching jobs and in between the jobs DW & I are sneaking in a quick trip to WDW. We're staying at AKV-Jambo (Standard View)...a first for us as we have only stayed at AKV-Kidani before. Looking forward to it, and to some down time. Jimmy....thanks for posting my upcoming trip on page 1.

Inkmahm...let us know how that Vonage thing works out. We were thinking of doing away with our land line telephone since we mostly get solicitation calls on it these days. But I don't think I'm ready to go 100% cellular so any way to cut down costs is welcome.

I'm so happy you are squeezing in a trip before your new job. Best wishes!

Thanks, Barb. We are looking forward to it, and we have an annual pass burning a hole in our pocket!

We'll be sure to drop by WL at least once or twice as we typically have a lunch at Roaring Fork. I'm assuming that March 2-7 is spring break season since the only rooms available were SSR and AKV. We are used to going to WDW during crowded times so we know how to enjoy it without a lot of park time.

And continued prayers for all Groupies, their loved ones and anyone who is needing our prayers that we might not be aware of. You are such a kind and supportive bunch!

Hey Granny
We have been to WDW a few times in March, 1st week is not too bad for crowds.
