We *almost* became BCV DVC members. I called about a resale contract yesterday but it had already sold. Now that I have permission to buy a resale BCV contract though, I'll be more aggressive...

There's a "Easy Linking Option" Through Photobucket. That's the best way. I use the iPhone app and it works. If you look at my "Recent Posts", Dee and I were talking about it. It's like User Settings-> Albums-> Easy Linking.

Yes it is. It's like a big holiday here in the states!!! Lol even if your team isn't in the game there is a party... I couldn't stay up either if I had such a time difference!!! I personally don't watch it I sit in the family room with everyone watching the game surfing the dis boards...lol

Yay for you too..... Where did you say the first time you went? It's also our first time at the YC and club level. But not at a deluxe resort. We stayed at the Contempory and Animial Kingdom Lodge. I'm thrilled to be walking a distance to two parks..

We stayed at the poly last 3 years ago. It took us this long to convince Hubby to go back.

I hope the boards stay active tonight with the game. I am not into football at all,yes I know. I need something to keep me occupied.

Does the YC/BC do anything special for the SuperBowl? Special areas to watch it with a group?

So exciting. The BCV contracts are usually not around long. Good luck! Let us know if you get one

Thanks SueM! After doing some homework on what our budget was former years and with the 30% discount vs. what it would cost us staying at our typical Poly Garden View (now standard) we decided to spend the extra money and upgrade to the Lagoon/Pool View. I just don't want to be looking directly into a tree at all times. We also noted in our reservation that we would like to stay close to the lobby and have a full balcony. Here is hoping for some pixie dust for a good view! I am an early riser and would like to enjoy a balcony this year!

DH and I are constantly talking about the possibility of buying resale at BC. Go for it

When DH and I went on a super last minute trip a few weeks ago we stayed at the Swan. He wanted to watch football playoffs but ESPN was crazy We went and watched the game in the Crew Cup lounge at YC and there were about 20 other people doing the same thing. Nothing official but we had fun

I know groups were watching World Cup soccer matches in the Solarium one year.

There's lots of comfy seating and a few televisions- at least there were- don't think I have seen pictures of the new set up yet...

So that may be another option.

Dee - get the eraser out!!!

DH said that since we are flying this year instead of driving he didn't want the hassle of a split stay. So now we are staying BC June 29-July 15!

I couldn't get a low fare for the flight home with Frontier so now we are flying down on Frontier and home on Jet Blue! This trip gets crazier and crazier!

This was sold within a few hours of being listed! I think we need either a June or an August use-year so I'm going to wait for the right contract.

We've been talking DVC for years. We each got a little unexpected bonus in the last month so we could finally pay cash for DVC. I didn't want to finance a Timeshare!!!
