Just curious, after being on these boards for awhile, how many people on the board and own DVC are from Wisc. (we're from Racine, Wisc.)

We are also from racine. I wondered how many other DVC Wisconsites there were. We bought BW in 1999, I think. We have only gone "home" once, for the 1999, 2000 Millenium Celebration. We spent the night of New Years at Epcot and it was WONDERFUL. (very crowded, but wonderful). We want to go back again for New Years or Xmas. We loved Boardwalk. We just purchased additional; points at Vero Beach (site unseen).

We're in Madison as well. Just booked Midwest Express from MKE for $220 in August. Love flying First Class. Doesn't happen often enough.

Hey, that makes two Wisconsinites in WLV in March. We are going March 27-April 5.

Sure is a small world.

Joined in 97. We're from Appleton. Home resort OWK. Have stayed at the others except VB. Best vacation decision we ever made. Long time lurker on the boards but rare contributor. Any golfers out there who've played LBV? Next trip-April 15-20 :D

We have only driven down. We have gone to WDW 3 times. We have 3 children and driving is much cheaper at this point. I know we'll be flying at some point because the kids are getting older and it's hard to take time off from school. They are also at different schools now with different schedules. We'll fly from Milwaukee or Chicago, whichever offers the best flights and prices. We may fly this year if we can get good prices in December (probably not that month though!)

We're from Racine and have been members since 1997. OKW is our home resort and just bought an add-on for the BW. We also love to fly Midwest Express. I just returned from running the Disney Marathon two weeks ago.

Hi, DVCers from Wisconsin. We're from Greendale, a suburb of Milwaukee. We bought into DVC in October 2000 and our next trip is during Teacher's Convention in October. :)

Our home resort is OKW, members since '97. We are in West Allis. 3 of my students families are also members, fun to compare trips with my students.

We became members in 2000. Our home resort is OKW. Our first trip as DVC members was this past September, BWV preferred view of the pool. We will return with family members in May 2001. Can't wait. The first time we flew was on ATA. Now, it is Midwest Express all the way!

I think I saw 3 posts from Racine. If any of you DVC members come up North to Wisconsin, be sure to stop at a bakery in Racine and buy some Kringle. You'll LOVE it. No calories, of course!

In Racine, coffe from Wilson's, Kringle from Larsen's, does life get any better than this ?
Sure-Citrus Swirl from the Magic Kingdom!

O.K., what's a citrus swirl? I need to know what i've been missing. I've had Kringle and coffee from Wilson's. If a citrus swirl is as good, I need to know!

Citrus Swirl is a soft serve frozen swirl with orange juice from the Sunshine Tree Terrace next to the Tiki Birds, we were down in Dec and it was closed for remodeling, going down March 15 thru 18th, sure hope it's open.

It sounds kind of like a dreamsicle. Hope they'll have it when you go! Maybe we'll try it in Dec./Jan. It might be better in the summer though!
