I just want to say that figuring out points...
borrowing, purchasing the 24 "extra" points, just the whole thing makes me feel like I need to be a mathemetician sometimes.
My twin daughters have both been accepted into the College Program so I have the GREAT (and Im not kidding) GREAT job of figuring out the next 3 and possibly 4 trips to Disney on points. 2 (maybe 3) trips this year and saving enough for a 5 day to Disneyland in 2014.
I keep going over it and keep coming up with different figures but Im sure I will get it sorted out.
I have a new respect for those with multiple contracts at multiple resorts with multiple use years....THATS for sure!

I'm happy to dance with you
I have 2 opinions
We had tried usual things to keep them away, including something like coyote urine, it is sold in hardware stores by us

I love planning out point usage. If I just want to waste a day and have some planning fun, I sit down with a bunch of paper, pencil, point charts and calendars and plan out point usage for 1-2 years ahead. Lots of fun!

Congratulations on both you daughters getting accepted. My daughter recently applied too.
I love to jot down, erase, have multiple columns, boxes playing around with all the different scenarios/options of using our points!!!! This is all part of the fun!!! Enjoy!
