Got our vacation magic in the mail today, and as with anything DVC related it became a game of who could get to the envelope first--me or my DH.

I WON! And spent the next 15 minutes pouring over the pictures and reading every little thing (even though I've read some stuff on these boards) while enjoying some hot chocolate.


Ahhhhhh, it doesn't get any better.

...unless you are actually there. Which we will be (HH for the first time) next weekend!!!!!!!!!!!

Got ours in AL on Thursday. Didn't have to fight with my DH over, unfortunately he couldn't care less!

Are they sent to different parts of the country at different times?

I have never received one. Is it too soon to expect a copy? We closed in March. It wasn't too soon for them to take the first payment out of our checking account...

Another Missourian here, got mine a couple of days ago.

Looked through it but not thoroughly yet. Seemed that all the info in there had been already discussed on this board!

Still, nice to get the mailing.

It did get my DW thinking about cruises, until she saw the point costs! :eek:

Always nice to have a DVC mailing on a cold day in March. :)

Got ours in the Great White North of CT ! also according to the New Vacation Magic is #9 on the list of top DVC owning states !! I'll bet if the list were to be listed per capita, CT would be the #1, numero uno, big cahuna state. (also home to the #1 ranked UConn Women basketball team).

I think you are behind the times, NJ is #1 per capita surpassing Connecticut.

You may be right, I don't even know what the population of NJ is. I do know CT has less than 3.5MM. I was surprised CT rank #9, I just thought CT deserved some bragging rights.

Congratulations and welcome home! If you don't get a VM, you can call MS and request that one be sent. I'd recommend that wait a little while before you do that, though. Haven't gotten our VM yet either. (As you can see, we live in Minnesota, too). Usually get ours several days after the first post talking about it appears here.:) Hoping we both find it in our boxes very soon.

Just to let others in MO know we have not received ours in Kansas City yet. Probably will be in todays mail.

Didn't open it yet, but I noticed that ours was in the mail when my wife picked it up today (we had been out of town). So, this issue has made it to Illinois.

For those who are impatient (like me) I noticed as of today the new issue is on the members web site.

I couldn't help but notice our very own PLUTO4PRES family feature in the current issue of VM. Congratulations PLUTO4PRES !!

DVCDAVE and Sgtpet:

NJ is #1 and CT is a somewhat close 2nd, at least that's how it was a year ago. I did a per capita chart and republished it in another recent post. You can see that posting here, my chart is several posts down the list:

If anyone has more current DVC numbers I'll gladly recalculate the chart and post again.

Has anyone in Minnesota received theirs yet? I don't know if I am too new to expect one, or if they just aren't to MN yet.

Let me say that I love the state of CT. DVC Dave, I was just having some fun.

Except for New Haven. Then again we have Newark, Paterson, Trenton, etc.

SGTPET, I fully understood the fun you were having. No need to worry. I too was having fun in my original post. That's the trouble with the written word, no body langauage, no voice inflection, etc.. We should be proud of both of our states, small, but yet a love for Disney.....

But also noticed that the latest issue is posted on the member website as a PDF file for those who have not yet received a copy - past issues are also posted!

I still haven't received my VM yet; however, my sister in Springfield, MO received hers a week ago. Anyone else in KC get theirs yet?

Still waiting for Vacation Magic here in Los Angeles. As usual California must get the mailing last!
