My sister and boyfriend share the same birthday, and this year, it happened to land on fall break. What better place to celebrate than Walt Disney World? It was a wonderful time to go, as we got to attend Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party for the first time, Food & Wine Festival, and were there for the soft opening of New Fantasyland!
This is actually my 10th trip report (3rd on the DIS) - all are linked in my signature if you'd like to read some old reports!

And Mom and Dad!
I rented points from Bill at DVC Magic Point Rentals for $10/point (a great deal which really helped me convince Dad... we normally spend around $400-500/night to stay at a Deluxe resort, and for about the same price, we could stay in a 2-bedroom villa... no-brainer, right?). I had inquired with a few other renters, but they all said it wasn't possible - it was too late to book (this was in early September), nothing was available. Not Bill - he was determined to get us a villa! At first, he booked us three separate reservations - three nights at SSR and one night at OKW with a request to move to SSR. Within a week the SSR request went through, and he was able to link our four separate reservations together into one. This guy knew what he was doing!
