I rented DVC points when I got married three years ago. I used the DIS to do it. I had no issues, I just looked for someone who had done it for several years. Worked out well and would definitely do it again!

I believe Robbie did a while back, but I haven't seen him much on here lately so I guess that won't do you any good

hey all, im back, freezing...4 degrees and 19 below windchill this morning not going to get to 10 degrees today...wish i was back in 90+ in the carribean. Wonderful trip, even though i nearly downed in rough weather snorkeling on 'the wall' in Grand Cayman and had to visit ship's dr for an infected manicure. That's why you buy trip insurance. Wonder if the stingrays would've dined on my carcass lol?

came home and had a minor electrical fire on Monday, welcome home my butt. Least it was caught in time, i'll call it a blessing in disguise.

mac sorry to hear of parental problems, hope all is well and with StL's family too

belated happy happy to kyle, soon to depart the teen years and congrats to todd for rolling over the mileage!

re DVC point rentals...get thee to the board here for current offerings. Make sure to look for track record (lots of posts, etc.) or the rental program logo under the screen names and make sure you can live with the contract (which varies) terms. Rentals are quite the deal if you have the stomach for accepting the tradeoff as to level of risk that comes with all rentals.

There's a site that advertises on here (Dave's DVC Rental or something like that). They have a set price per point. You put in a request form for your top 3 choices and pay a small deposit and they try and find DVS owners with extra points to match what you're wanting. I did one at at AKV and was quite please with the process, and it was a nice way to end my trip.

So ready for this work week to be over. I didn't get out till 4am last night.

Mostly new ADR's all around. Doing Kona Cafe twice, dinner and breakfast, I'd only done lunch before. Doing Ohana, 1900 Park Faire, Garden Grill and Crystal Palace, all of which I've never been to. So yay for that, lol. I'll do a TR when I get back, hopefully, if I remember lol.

andy: good choices! make sure to hang around long enough at 1900 park faire for the evil stepsister's stick. imo CP has best charactar buffet food & face time. Not big on ohana but big fan of kona.

do believe we picked up a mayan curse during our trip...furnace went out yesterday (plumber got it working but needs replaced) and the fancy/smancy gaming desktop i bought DH for Xmas had network adapter die. It's attached to the motherboard so i have my choice of trying to uninstall it myself or pack the whole tower up and send it back to mfg in CA. choices aren't always good lol

nwahaha next best thing, added a day on June's WDW trip

my oldest DS's family made it out to WDW today before the storm hit, having a great time except...

Got in line for Be Our Guest lunch around 1 pm. Was told half-hour wait which took them behind one woman. Would you believe she was holding a place in line for a party of 30 who were off 'somewhere'? Finally they got to enjoy what they called a great meal by 2:15 pm but I cannot believe one person can hold that many spots.

if it were me, i would have skipped that due to the long wait.


from what i have been reading on different sites, be our guest dining isn't all that good.
peeps talk about the ambiance but then complain about the food quality and poor/slow service.


i saw ohana had a menu change.
now i could go for that on my next trip to the motherland!

I'll let you know how the new menu is. I hear they added mango and papaya to the salad. I'm not a big fan or either, so we'll see.
