renting points IS staying onsite- with all the stuff that comes with booking a disney vacation. Staying at a delux resort like Animal Kingdom or Boardwalk.
But with health being an issue-- and no cancellation that may not be the route for you to go

If this helps anyone, here's how I motivate myself to get into the gym. I found that I could easily spend hours on Dis researching and reading. Time flies when I'm on here. So now I take my phone (don't have an iPad) and I either walk on the treadmill or ride a bike for an hour while reading on Dis. In fact, I'm on a stair climber right now!

I don't have a smart phone & or Y doesn't have wifi or that would work great. I do have Disney music on my ipod, like rides and shows and stuff so I can kind of zone out and pretend I'm walking around MK when i'm on the tread mill

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

Is that NOT high? I checked Jetblue today for our dates and they are WAY higher than usual so I'm holding off 'til Airtran releases their dates at the beginning of may so I can compare.

I booked JetBlue the day flights were released. We got Providence to Orlando for $480 round trip. We are a family of 3.

I checked the same round trip flight today (curious) and it was over $900!

Just got off the phone making the reservations for 12/2/13 - 12/6/13. Very excited! We have not been since 02/09. We are staying at Saratoga Springs and decided for ease with 4 young kids to go with the DDP. Trying to make the most of this trip since my daughter will be 6 and that is a perfect age to me for the princess interaction. What is the pop warner thing? Is it the first week of December?
Also, I understand the Mickey's once upon a Christmas party will be available that week. Anyone else planning on going even though you have to pay a little more for it. Seems pretty cool.

This is really a lot of fun. If you haven't done it yet you should. Last year it was Ages 10+: $58.95+tax / Ages 3-9 $53.95+tax.

I'm not sure yet if we are doing it yet or not, we've done it a few times and we may skip this year.

Pop Warner week is Dec 7th to 14th.

They haven't announced the 2013 MVMCP dates yet, but predictions are that it will be on Sun Dec 1st, Tues Dec 3rd, and Wed Dec 5th of the dates that you are there.
