Who says we have to be in WDW to have a Dis-meet....being close to home and having one is just as good! Looks like a great time was had by all!

Love the Disney touches in your office....I have pictures on the wall in our hallway that greet me every morning before I leave for work...and they remind me why I do what I do...to get to my happy place as often as possible!

You all are going to have a grand time and I know that your meet(s) will be sooo much fun!

I bit the bullet and booked our Oct. trip this evening and we went with the last weekend. With conferences I had no choice and then the comp day after gives one more day to enjoy the parks!
I hate it that we will miss all the happenings but so glad that we will get to finally meet you this summer!

Only 4 nights. You are so deprived. I can understand your husband's desire to stay only there. It really is a wonderful resort. One of my absolute favs. Even when I stayed in a standard 2BR villa I was blown out of the water by the rooms and this great resort. I really enjoyed those general viewing areas and all the big windows along the halls allowing 24/7 access to animals.

It was such a fun meet and I'm glad you also found a DISer who lives close to you. The internet has really helped with the saying, "It's a small world after all".

I love my binder. It's not all tricked out with computer graphics, but something about cutting and pasting Disney pictures gives me the warm fuzzies!

It really is fun seeing my plushes and my post cards every day. I had them in a room at home where I didn't pay much attention to them. This si so much better. They seriously cheer me up!

We probably should start thinking about ADRs. I would love to put Sanaa on our list. I think you've eaten there, but I'm not sure. I'll tell ya - the one thing I love about AKL are the pools. I'm not sure if that is a good or bad thing, but I could chill by those pools for many hours. I also love the music there. It just takes me to another place.

I really don't like the music at WL, but I do love the scenery and those pools are pretty nice as well. So I'm totally good with either of those places, but I still think we should try for BWV.

I don't really have any strong preferences as far as dining is concerned. The only thing I don't want to do is have as many sit down lunches. I guess what I mean is - on several of the days I would prefer either a sit down lunch or a sit down dinner, but not both. I just feel like two sit downs a day is a lot when you do it every day. Not just food wise, but time wise.

I would mind eating at the GF for something different.

How great would that be? I guess if we switched there we could always book standard and wait list for club level for a night or two. I wonder how that would work out pointwise. Hmmmmmm? And do they still have that sunrise or sunset safari just for club level. You know I would love to try that.

I love that print too. One of my favs. that's actually the post card version. I brought some more Disney stuff in today, but I left it out in my car and I'm too lazy to get it.

I love being able to put the Disney touches in this work space. It really brightens everything up. Nothing like a refillable mug to really add to overall feel. You can always tell a true affecianado by the mug.

It's always great to meet a DISer in person and I really enjoyed Mark's TR so it was a pleasure to meet him and his family. He actually just finished writing about a non-DIS trip that they took over the summer and you know I eat that stuff up. Now they have a beach/WDW planned for this summer. But, shhhhh - the kids don't know about the WDW part.

Isn't that the truth? Well said. I just remembered that I have this awesome Disney print in Brian's room that I'm sure he never looks at. I am thinking of bringing it in to put on one of my bare walls.

What can you do? You have to work, so you have to work around the work schedule. I am grateful that my job is pretty flexible as far as taking time off from work. There aren't a lot of times when I MUST work.

I am looking forward to meeting you too this summer. It's going to be a blast.

This office move was originally such a negative experience because they kicked me out of an office with great proximity to where I spend most of my time. But even though the new work space is farther away and up a floor, it was like moving in to a new house. I have cart blanche on the decorating and I am finding more and more fun things to bring in.

I was shocked when I found out how close I lived to someone whose TR I had been reading since the end of summer. Very cool indeed!

Julie took this picture and Mark let me borrow it! Thanks again guys!

I think it's ironic that I would never have met Mark, Julie, and the kids if it wasn't for the DIS boards. I hope I get to see them again in the near future!
Darn. I was hoping it would be somebody exciting. Oh well.

It is pretty funny that we wouldn't have met without the DISBoards. Although you probably met us a couple of years ago. Remember the couple with the whining, screaming kids who tried to take 25 items through the Express lane at the grocery store while you just wanted to buy a gallon of milk?

Let's do it again! When is your Woodstock performance?

MaryEllen, I love your office decor...perfect.

And as I mentioned on Captain_Oblivious' thread, I am SO jealous that he got to meet you. One of these days we will be in the World at the same time.

I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Julie and Sarah, but the guys were the best!

Your Disney office looks so cute! I have random Disney stuff at work too!

I'm so mad I'm going to miss this epic Dis meet in October, by like 3 weeks. I'll probably be going the last week of September.

I Sanaa. There is a chance I'll be there in August but I'd do it twice in a heartbeat. Kind of pathetic but I'm trying to force a general time decision on a larger group trip, if there is one for the next couple of years so I can decide what we are doing this summer. I think loving the pools is VERY important...lets you practice noodling. I can't say I've ever noticed the music at any of the pools, how wierd is that? Granted, I'm usually trying to find Eric but was there music at the BCV villa pool? I totally don't remember!

I've only been to the main pool and...well you have my lame comment on music above. Which is pretty funny when you think about the fact that I had the ipod on while we were in the room or on the balcony at all times

I love the idea of BWV for proximity to Food and Wine

good question and no clue! I can see where owning at AKL would have it's advantages for those club level studios. Not sure about the safari but for some reason I think so.

MEK, we don't have anything defineate for WDW this Sept. I have decided if FD come again, to book a trip. I'm looking at OKW or maybe AKL, I figure that I can afford either of those since I paid for the last trip & that was two rooms at CBR.

I would have to look at the cost of going during F&W a compared to early Sept. I do like the low crowd levels then.
