Jimmy...thanks so much for posting the pictures of the Groupie meet. What a fine group you are indeed!!

Today is the 10 day countdown mark for our trip. The pictures and stories are just right to keep me motivated to finish up at work and enjoy a week at our beloved VWL!

What a great time we have had with our beloved Groupies. First, our meet at BLT on Saturday night. Thank you DizDi for arranging that for all of us and thank you for the extra special gift that you blessed we Groupie Girls with. Love it! And thank you Rich, from Mr Muush, for the Mickey head key chain. He treasures it.

This morning we got to be flag family and got to experience it with Keliblue and her husband. I was so glad to get to know them. Kindred spirits (right Keliblue ).

Then this evening we met once again. DizDi and Dad joined us for the hay ride through Fort Wilderness. We saw some wild decorations and some very beautiful ones. But the company couldn't be beat. Then we headed back to our beloved for some desserts with JT, (both of them!) and Casey. And then our special guest Maria came knocking on the window to get let in. Just sitting, finally meeting Maria and her husband. Good time.

Granny, I hope the 10 days fly by and you and your wife have a wonderful time at VWL and WDW.

We had a great time last night too Muushka. I have been a little under the weather so decided to forgo the hayride, but as Barb says, we met at the CPR. Barb made a wonderful dessert and cookies, and we enjoyed the company, nice getting to meet Maria and her DH along with spending more time with Dad and Di and Mr. Muushka.

Heading to Epcot later today, eat at Rose and Crown, do some things, probably make it an early evening as tomorrow is go home day.

Even while we have been on this trip, we are already anticipating our next in May.

156 days to go!!

Whoa! Who do we have here???? I'm so glad you came out of lurkdom and joined the friendliest thread on the Dis!
It was great meeting you and your husband last Saturday evening. Visit often!

We are packing up and leaving for our cruise that leaves on Sat. Tomorrow we meet our old buds at our old stomping grounds and then Sat we board the beautiful Eclipse for 14 nights.

Merry Christmas to our Groupies. I love you guys.

My husband (William, the other DF in the pics) and I wish we could have come to the hay ride - but we had to leave the magical Disney bubble last Monday But we met such wonderful people, and can't wait for future opportunities to join some of your meets!

We are new to dvc (resale this year) and are tring out each of our dream resorts.
So far we have stayed at BCV for our youngest DD, BLT for our Great Aunt and now our waitlist came through for our older DD's pick, spring break at the VWL !!!! I texted her this week at college and it was just the news she needed as she was studing for finals.
Any sugestions would be great ...
We did stay at the lodge for one night many years ago and try to eat at wispering canyons cafe almost every trip because of how much DD loves this resort.
Thanks !!!!

1st, let me say Welcome to the groupies Bronte!!!!
VWL is the smallest DVC resort on WDW property, so most rooms are not far removed from the elevators, very close to bus stop, maybe 5 mins from boats to MK, FW and Contemp. Very close to main lodge area. Rooms all pretty much are views of trees, but this holds a vantage as early am deer can be spotted. There are possible views of quiet pool and higher floors, same side of bldg afford a view of Bay Lake.

Our personal pref. is a higher floor, near elevators.
Soak in all the Lodge has to offer.

We are home. Had an uneventful drive, which is nice
We didnt leave WDW til around 11:30, sorta bummed around the resort longer than intended, but I think it helped me to have the extra rest. That giant snickers bar around 8 pm gave me the extra boost needed to finalize the drive
