Camping Cat, what DVC do you call home???
You're not going to believe this, but my Dad's family were Thibodeaux's from Thibodaux! And my hubby's family, are Chauvin's from Raceland & take a wild guess, yep Chauvin's from Chauvin!!!

Sorry about the vehicle. But I sure have been hearing a lot of good things about OKW, lately! Is that your DVC home?

Sort of sad that I changed our last trip from OKW to SSR. Don't get me wrong SSR was really very nice, but just a bit spread out for us.

Although we own at SSR, we're staying at OKW because it has a much bigger kitchen/dining/living area than the other one bedrooms. My friend Charlotte (a fellow DVCer from Waveland) and I put on a dinner for our RADP friends every December. We pack more than 30 people in there and OKW is the only resort that will hold that many comfortably. And that huge balcony is a lifesaver!

If you only knew how many times where I had to spell my name for some document only to be asked "Are you sure there is no "e" in your last name"?

My response is "I am an original Thibodaux, not one of those wannabe's

In the end, you know all of us coon a$$ folk are. We are all related. (We else was there to do in a swamp?)

We are not but two families I know are going. One friend hasn't been since she was four years old ! We had lunch last week to fill her in on what's new since then I was also able to share the info about the military discount. Her retired military dad is going with them. Saved them lots of dollars!! We already have a lunch planned so she can give me a trip report.

We are cruising in April and going in November for Thanksgiving (if I get some
at 7 months and can snag a 1 bedroom at any resort!).

I hope everyone going at Mardi Gras has a great time!!

I live in Houma and just bought into DVC (BWV) in Nov '08 after visiting WDW for 28 years as non-members. We went to WDW on our honeymoon in Nov 1980, and we have our first trip as members scheduled for Thanksgiving weekend to celebrate our anniversary.

We've always enjoyed going to WDW at Mardi Gras time, because we normally saw a lot of our fellow Louisiana neighbors there.
