We're Staying OFFSITE! A "Mom-and-me" October '14 PTR!
Welcome to my PTR!
Well... OUR PTR.
Mom and me are heading back to WDW for our third trip in the past 4 years!
Here we are:
My mom recently lost over 40 lbs and we are aiming to do the ToT 5k run on our trip. That is, if it's going on while we're there.
Why do I say that? Two reasons:
1) We don't know when the ToT 10 miler/5k will take place.
2) I'm not giving my specific dates on the DIS this time. I have my reasons!
But we're not staying on site this time! No! We've stayed at Pop:
And a surprise stay at the CR:
We stayed at ASSports, and the YC:
And we love us some Disney:
So why go offsite? Two reasons:
1) We had a "free week" at a timeshare owned by my stepgrandma! Free digs, y'all!
2) Honestly, Disney is starting to nickel and dime us just a little too much and this is a freedom trip. We're free from the cost of onsite, and we just might schedule a night or two at a value for the perks.
So, where are we staying, when are we staying, and what are we doing?
Please see the next few posts for more than introductions!

So, the When, Where, Why, etc.
October 2014! I'm not giving my exact dates, but am using the ToT dates from 2013. I'll say 10/4, since that would be a Saturday!
We love ToT!:
So we'd love to do some sort of ToT "run" to commemorate my mom's weight loss. I may *MAY* do the 10 miler if it's available while we're there. I have not made any decisions yet!
The Sheraton Vistana Resort!
We booked after a lot of research and are already fighting over who gets the master bath. I will win!
Well because we LOVE DISNEY of course! Plus we love to travel together, and we're looking forward to having a real vacation vs. a Disney vacation. Staying offsite means that we have a lot of options (and a rental car) so we're looking forward to having a relaxed vacation that may be filled with surprises. We're expecting to spend at least one night onsite on my AP discount, and I'm extending our 7 night vacation for another 2-3 nights - so that means 9-10 nights at Disney!

I had commented on your question the other day about Value beds & saw you had TRs. I just read you BWV TR & enjoyed it!!! That thread seemed closed, so I just wanted to say thank you for sharing!
I've never stayed offsite, so I'm excited to hear your thoughts on it! So I'm subscribing if you don't mind!
Where are you debating for your couple onsite stays?
