Our new project in January is going to be to photograph each letter of our last name somewhere on property. We'll pick our favorite representation of each letter, and we hope to frame the photos together. It'll be a fun "hunt" to find unique renditions of the letters around the world.

Get a passport and go around each land of EPCOT getting it stamped!

Take 3 days out and get a last minute deal on a disney cruise ( we sometimes do this and dont check out of our room but you can to save cash or points depending on booking )

Drive up International drive its fun

Hire a gps and just go for a road trip of walmarts going to as many as you can find lol

Take the tour at the Wilderness Lodge.
We love to rent bikes and ride around Ft. Wilderness. It's especially nice from Halloween through Christmas/NY when you see the fantastic decorations that the campers set up!

Location of the suggestor is UK, so that's something to consider! We Americans don't appreciate what we have!

Also WL is my favorite resort, I've been known to go there, walk around at night, and just be there, eating dinner at Artist Point is optional.

1. Actually use the jacuzzi in a one or two bedroom villa.

2. After a busy day, get in your comfies and enjoy a bottle of overpriced crummy wine, a delivered pizza, and people watch on your balcony. Then fall asleep watching a movie.

2a. Drink your morning coffee in your pajamas on your balcony while you watch those poor people up and running at 7:30 am trying to make EMH rope drop.

3. Go for a morning hike whether it be at your resort, from one resort to another, or around DD.

Take the monorail loop and explore each of the resorts. We timed it for a drink at the GF and listened to the entertainment.

Drive all the roads in the park and look for shortcuts and the different ways in and out of the park.

See how many places (resort, park, DTD) you can visit without taking a WDW bus. Boats, monorails and Surreys are OK, but not your car.

Explore the trails between WL and Fort Wilderness. See if you can find River Country.

This is us!!!! LOL!!! We also do resort hopping quite a bit. Since BWV is our main stay, we bring a bottle of wine to the BCV "beach" across the way and just relax in the evening during the fireworks. We also love to walk over to Epcot wait until Illuminations is over and stroll very very slowly out of the deserted park.

We've done the Kim Possible thing....the Hidden Mickey thing.... but it's the relaxing thing I enjoy the most.

A fellow Disney slacker!!!

We are staying at BWV (Boardwalk view) in February. It's the only WDW DVC resort we haven't stayed at yet. Can't wait!

Can you actually find RC? Willing to share any hints about landmark(s) to find it? That was a fun day on our very first WDW visit, and it was gone by the next one.

Try hitting the most resorts without using a car or bus without using a park pass. You can bus to your starting point. Try using the most forms of transportation. No walking across roads outside the resorts.

Just because it worked for me or worked this way in the past or is part of the great Dis lore is no reason it will work this way in the future. Depending on the CM you get, new interpretation of the rules, changes in rules, weather over the Himalayas, your results may be different.

1)If it's an all adult group - Jellyrolls! Awesome
2)Grand Floridan Tea for lunch
3)Spa treatment at one of the spa's (one of my absolute favorites!)
4)Touring the monorail hotels, and having lunch at one of them, via the monorail.
5)Taking the boat around seven seas lagoon just for a nice leisurely ride

Have a great time!
