Welcome to all the new groupies. If you also want to be on the birthday or anniversary list, pm me!!


We join the ones that are jealous we cannot be with the December groupies, but it looks like next years groupie meet is already shaping up. Kati and I are counting the days until we make our December 2013 reservation. Looking forward to December 2013, but since I am not one to wish time away, I will enjoy the year until it gets here. Plus I guess two cruises will help pass the time.


Well, I can now report that the car search is over. We were going to look a little more, but we fell in love with and purchased the 2012 Toyota Camry SE Limited Edition. I will tell you we are calling the color ' Mickey Pants Red'!!!! Here she is!

Though DH said he was good either way he only talked about Hawaii - even I could figure that one out.

I'll miss the Christmas decorations and activities that I had been planning for 11 months and especially the groupie meet. And my Member ornament will have to come from Ebay instead of the mixer but we're excited. Next year though - Dec at WDW or bust!!!!

Pet sitter is arranged, airlines booked, rooms booked, car booked. Still have to cancel our WDW dining but otherwise all switched.

JT - could you please remove us from our Dec 1-9 WDW stay and substitute Dec 5-12 at Aulani? And also put us down for Feb 1-10th at BC/BCV for my convention.
WHOAH Kathy !!! You lucky duck !!!! Can't wait to hear all about it ! Hawaii is one of my dreams!

Teapot ! Gonna miss you !

For both of you, upon check-in, ask if there is opportunity for you to be Flag Family. One family per day is taken to the Lodge rooftop and helps the Lodge Ranger raise the flags; 4 to be exact. It's a wonderful opportunity for photos and to gaze over the World. This is not something that can be pre-arranged or reserved. First come, first served at check-in. twinmom108, with a 2 week stay you have a really good shot at it.

Kathy, we'll miss you at our meet, but I know you'll have a great time at Aulani.

tea pot, we'll miss you, too!
Speaking of Flag Families......if anyone signs up and wants 2 very large kids to join them, we're game!

Can someone point me to a link where I can see the floor plans for each floor of the Villas? I'd like to see where each villa is located, with numbers.

D the corner villas overlooking the pool have more windows than the typical villa? Are these one-bedrooms with a second lock off option?

Thanks!

This time I want to be aware!

So in the very limited time we have there, what should I make SURE we see?
You have gotten some wonderful tips from the VWL experts, and I'll toss in one more that I don't know that anyone has mentioned. Something you might enjoy with your DS is the Hidden Mickey hunt at the Lodge and VWL. Go to Guest Services and ask for the Hidden Mickey clue sheet and then spend time tracking them down. It's a lot of fun, but they are not always easy to spot!

Have a wonderful trip!

Hello everyone and Happy Thanksgiving from London

So I am getting way ahead of myself here but we have just booked our flights for December 2013 and wanted to say at the VWL for pretty much our whole vacation

It's our home resort but as a fairly new DVC Member we have only stayed at the Villas once before and that was only for one night (stayed at the Lodge previously)

We are so excited at the prospect of seeing all of the holiday decorations and I know this is a popular time to stay at the Villas, but what are my chances of securing 11 nights in a studio if I book right on my 11 month window?

I wasn't sure if I would end up only getting a small selection of my chosen dates (3rd - 14th December) as we didn't really want to switch resorts

Thanks everyone for this wonderful thread

It's going to be a long countdown so this thread will help me get through

Welcome Linda, to the happiest thread on the Dis.

First, as someone who has booked just about every Dec for the past 12 years, I would say your chances are excellent!
What a wonderful long vacation you will have at our beloved Lodge.

Visit us when you can. We love to get excited with our fellow VWL Groupies future vacations.
