Im pineing for my wonderful Villas at Wilderness Lodge.

Happy Birthday Cat

Absence truly makes the heart grow fonder. Enjoy your time at your real home planning your next trip.

Do you find yourself saying - oh it's almost 9 - people must be getting exited about Illuminations.

Oh, I could be eating lunch at Beaches N Cream right now.

Ummm I'm sorry - that probably made it worse? Just trying to sympathize.

Best advice is to start planning for the next time. I tie myself over by having the WL screensaver on my PC ... if only there were one available of all DVC resorts that included views of the rooms ... I could feel at "home" without being there - it sure would save on airfare! Hmmmmmm...

10-29-2004, 06:15 AM
I understand exactly how you feel
we were back from our first trip "home" to VWL Oct 11. The following day I reserved our next trip "home". Unfortunately its not until next Aug
I (kiddingly?) asked DH just last night if I could book an April trip

This might be the worst pun I've read in a week! :p

I take it that you enjoyed your stay at VWL? :smooth:

Thanks for your on-site reports from there....now you can share in the "pining" that you instilled in many of us while you were posting from there! :p

I knew I could find some understanding and caring people here on this forum. Thanks folks.

I think that starting to plan our NEXT trip, really helped with the "I want to be back(home)", blues!!::yes::

So, jimmytammy, happy planning,"it`s a deffinate "pick me up"!!!:teeth:

Sorry, I can't help. We just returned Sunday and I'm having the same problem!!! Of course, it's BWV that I am missing, but still having the breakdown.

I hate that you're not there too! I told my DH all about your comments about the Race track view from your room, and your kids being in the parade that we saw. He laughed about the "new" room catagory! Although I got to be on the WDW grounds that weekend and we went to MNSSHP that Sunday night, it was not the same as a trip "home". We stayed at the Omni Orlando at Championsgate for my DH's conference. It was a beautiful resort and had only been open 2 days when we arrived. But the fact that it took us 45 min. to drive 3 miles down I4 to get there at 11:30 at night after MNSSHP, is why I tell all my friends that it is worth it to stay onsite! Our next trip home will be at SSR, and I just can't help but think I'm going to be disappointed, that it won't measure up to VWL. But I do want to try our all the resorts, and we are bringing family and need a 2 bedroom, and frankly I just don't have enough points for VWL this trip. By the way, what were your kids wearing, and which float were they riding. I was going to try to see if I could pick them out of my photo's of the parade. (We were at the 10:00, on the 17th) Hurry up and get another trip planned, and hopefully you'll feel better.

I can't wait to be out of classes for a month & be on my way to WDW in December!! I need to go home now but papers, books, & tests are calling my name.


10-29-2004, 03:36 PM
We just got home a week ago today, and I have done nothing but plan what we are doing on our trip in December! I know I should be packing for our move next week and planning the placement of furniture in the new place, but all I can think of is planning for WDW again! I even thought of packing up the stuff we always bring for the villa BEFORE we move! I guess I'm worried I might not find that stuff after the move!:teeth:

10-29-2004, 04:18 PM
One reason I was totally bummed out when we left BCV on the 24th is that we check into VWL on Dec 5th.

OMG! ::yes:: I have become ADDICTED to D-Magic Radio. They play all the night time shows like Spectromagic, Wishes, Fantasmic, IllumiNations, even Tapestry every night starting at seven, including pre and post show music.
I crank it up so I can listen to it all and pretend like I'm there! :eek: Sad, but true............

Hey Jimmytammy,

How about giving us a trip report? Sounds like it must have been a great trip, and sharing it might help. And it will help those of us who until our next trip are living vicariously through trip reports of other DVCers!

10-30-2004, 12:21 PM
D-Magic radio?

Could you please enlighten me?


10-30-2004, 12:43 PM
Post vacation (in this case WDW) depression or PVDD (POST-VACATION-DISNEY-DEPRESSION) as we like to call it.

I can sympathize with you. Our first trip as DVC members was in May. For the next month (at work !) I think I visualized every day in my head. What park we went to, where we ate, and so on.

I cant wait to get back!


10-30-2004, 01:03 PM
There's only one thing you can do...

Buy more points.

Our kids were in the 8 parade. They were on the float with Donald, Daisy, Woody and Jessie.

10-30-2004, 11:41 PM
Oh Well, I got my pictures developed yesterday, and they turned out so dark, that I don't think I could have picked them out anyway. My photo of the headless horseman wasn't even in my photo pack, so it must have been so dark that the photo tech threw it out. Oh well, I guess that will be my excuse for another trip to MNSSHP, so I can try the photo thing again!

10-31-2004, 08:13 AM
We havent developed ours yet but Im pretty sure the Headless Horseman isnt going to show up in our pics either. We have a digital camera and its hard to see what is in the picture. Im hoping it turns out.

Our camera battery went dead right as the kids were coming by on the float. Some folks who were standing next too us got the shots cause their kids were on the same float. They are hopefully going to send us some prints. The next day we drove into downtown Orlando to buy a battery. Just my luck:crazy:

Here's where to find DMagic Radio:

It's an internet radio station that plays music from Disney parks. There are others if you do a search on the site I linked you to above.

HTH! :wave:

I really understand how you feel. The VWL is a very special place with my family, my DW, DS and DD just hated the last day on our vacations so I recreated the VWL in our living room, now it's not as bad coming "home", plus our family room is 100% disney so that helps also.

So now you just have to start planning your next trip or the add on (oh ya!):D :D :D :D ::MickeyMo ::MinnieMo

Take your favority WL/VWL photo collection and use them as background for your computer. That's what I do! BCV at work, WL at home.

11-01-2004, 09:14 PM
Got a CD in the mail today from a fellow DVC DISer with lots of WL music on it. Listened to it then got sorta misty. Man I cant wait to get back "home"
