Yay. I'm all signed up. What a great idea to have it at a Grand Villa! I'm DVC at BLT but I've never seen a Grand Villa.
I'm excited that this coincides with my stay, not only at WDW, but at AKV.
Looking forward to meeting everyone!

We are arriving on the 3rd, and probably won't be getting to WDW till around 9. We would so like to be there but don't want to take anyone else's place just in case our flight is delayed :sad2:

but, if you don't get a full house by then, please let us know. We will have a rental car and could drive on over (we'll be staying at BCV). We'd love to join in on the meet!

I wonder if, the next time you stay DVC, you could ask at the front desk if one was available to just peek in? Couldn't hurt to ask, right? Maybe some pixiedust: will come your way!

Great idea...even if I don't get any pixiedust! I'm so happy to even have my 50 points, and we actually get a lot of bang for our buck. However, it would be neat to see it in person as I've only seen pictures.

Excellent! I love AKL. You'll have a great time there. We stayed in Jambo House this past June. Just so you know they have a great hidden Mickey hunt inside and outside the lobby. Ask for a hidden Mickey sheet at the front desk. The sheet wil have clues on it to lead you to different hidden Mickeys throughout and outside the lobby, near the savanna. It's great fun for kids, adults, and a family on a day when you may have little planned. Hope to see you at the meet! :)

Hi everyone,

A wonderful person, offered to create a logo for us. As soon as it's ready, we'll be able to use it in our signatures.

My question is...is anyone interested in T-shirts? Please don't feel obligated. If you are, let me know and I'll start researching printing. As soon as I find how many are interested, I can give you an idea on pricing.

I am not a tee shirt gal (they just don't look good on me) so I would not be interested in a tee shirt, but a coffee mug, a signature logo for the boards, etc. sounds great.
Thanks for all your hard work in setting this up.

AWESOME!!!! But what is a Jamborini??? lol:confused3

We are a group of devoted AKL/AKV fans!! We do a fair amount of posting on the AKL Lite thread ("Lite" because we frequently stray off topic! :laughing:) Many of us know each other very well and actually vacation together; others we are just getting to know. The Meet thread where I posted your link is all about the Jamborini Meet for Food & Wine Festival! :thumbsup2

We refer to ourselves as Jamborinis and Kidanites!! :goodvibes

So far it looks like our events will be Oct 2nd - Illuminations and Oct 3rd - our Victoria Falls meet, then at least 3 of us coming to your event! :thumbsup2 Most of us aren't staying at AKL/AKV this trip (shhhh!) :)

If you see anything that will work with your schedule, please join us!! ;)

Hi Everyone,

We have an official logo for the meet. Please feel free to manipulate it as you wish. Adding it to your signature would be a great idea. :)

Hi all,

I spoke to our wonderful rep Leah today and she is stopping by the meet. I thought maybe we could help the village out by bringing some of the small items on GKTW wish list to the meet. I'm sure Leah and the kids would be grateful!

Here is a link to the list:

Posting your room number in a public forum might not be the best idea.

Just my opinion.
