I so hear you there! I don't imagine they have much available even direct for GCV do they? I'd probably suck up a studio there to be honest, much as I love having the kitchen, the trip just doesn't need to be as long so a studio could be livable for 3 nights if it was just the 4 of us, though certainly not ideal.

I do! Very excited about that. Have had some drama about it already with the family, hopefully it will be resolved before then. Flight prices are freaky, I am hoping with enough prior tracking we can make it work but they are scary.

I am super duper excited! Like I could hardly sleep last night. I'm waitlisted for the night before in a Studio at the GCV. They had a 1 bedroom but I just couldn't swallow spending 52 points for one night for 2 people. Maybe I'll see what the DLH costs points wise? I was thinking it would be cool to wake up at Disney before heading to Club 33 for a fabulous lunch with awesome friends.

The Studio would be easy with 4 for sure and the points are so high for a one bedroom, I'd totally ne happy with a Studio for 4.

Family drama regarding NYE? Already? I'm sorry. I hope it all works out. It sounds like you're planning an amazing trip. Boardwalk at midnight? Unreal!

I agree, I feel very blessed. I will for sure, thank you! I'll bring the real camera so they're not all iPhone shots. I'll probably skip breakfast too. Or I'll have a Bengal BBQ skewer for breakfast.

Club 33 that is great ! Did hear of Club 33 before, but did not know much about it - so I did look it up and it says it is a private club.
So how do you get in ?
Yes, you will need your real camera not the photo camera.
When will you be going ?
Sounds fab !

You'll want to have a huge appetite, there is so much good food, and take plenty of pictures! I hope you get the waitlist. I've used my points to at the DLH and GCH for last minute visits. It's a lot more than for a villa, but at least you're staying at Disney!

To get in you've got to either be a member or be basically sponsored by a member. Its been on my bucket list as long as I've had a bucket list. We'll be going in March.

Really? I'll check with you first then. For our trip in Dec 2014 I'm going to need the 11 month advantage for sure. I hope you get to use your points of course but I'll happily rent them from you if you've got them available. Are you ready for your trip??? I can't believe you leave so soon.

I looked into using points at one of the hotels. I'm not a PPH lover. The GCV is my favorite but I do like the DLH too. We did Christmas there in 2005 and it was fantastic. I think it's 30+ for a night the DLH. The site is down right now, I just checked. I do like the idea of sleeping near the magic and waking up to a magical day. My Disney loving flag is proudly flying high right now.

I'll be starving I'm sure. I'll skip breakfast which isn't abnormal for me. I don't know what the picture taking etiquette is and I don't want to hinder anyone's experience.

We should know if F&W is coming back in 2014 by October, if it isn't coming back we won't be planning any big advance trips for a while. So I might have points to rent, we'll see.

I am NOT ready for my trip. I haven't unpacked the clean clothes from my trip to my parents over Christmas. With three canceled trips, it's like I don't really believe that I'm going. I need to get those suitcases unpacked and start repacking them.

I normally skip breakfast, but you might want to do something just to have a little sumptin sumptin in your stomach in case you start off your lunch with a Bloody Mary!

Picture taking is encouraged, bring it on.

You haven't unpacked? You're going, get packing or unpacking and then packing. Fran's healing nicely now right? Do you have a ton to do before the trip? It's 17 days away!!!

I do love a good Bloody Mary. With extra olives and spicy.

Glad to hear about the photos. I think I took 30 just today of the kids sledding. And they sled often.

We have to buy batteries for my scooter, and then pack.

We got our ME tags for the trip home today...it's getting close!

ME tags make it so real.

Do scooter batteries last long?

I'm looking forward to your report.

You should be really happy dancing today with only 16 days until your trip. What kind of phone do you have?

I need to look into adding on GCV points. I'm hoping GFV price info is released soon.
