Too cool!!! You are right close to me, then! I actually work in Wilmington. From 2009 to late 2012, I worked in NJ, but other than that, I have worked in Delaware since the late 1990s. It's just an easier commute than driving all the way to Cherry Hill or Mt. Laurel (or worse, Philly). And I do all my shopping in DE, especially since there's nothing around where I live (all farm country, you know?). Well, happy planning and maybe we can meet up soon.

Wonderful! Gotcha added, Heather. And welcome aboard! You'll be there the same time my family will be. POR has been our favorite resort, but I can't wait to check out OKW (especially now that the fridges won't be in most rooms by later October).

138 for us. I think saying 'about 4 months' makes it sound sooner! lol

So we were supposed to stay at an offsite hotel for the three days before our timeshare stay starts. After talking to friends of ours that are going the same time, we decided to stay at Saratoga Springs instead. Anyone ever stay there? Eat there? Would love to hear all about your favorite parts about it. This will be our first time eating and staying on Disney property for Thanksgiving, so it makes it more exciting for us! We are looking forward to it! Thanks!

My cousin and her husband are DVC owners and that is their home resort. They LOVE it. I know they have mentioned really enjoying the pool there. We've never been there but since they are meeting us in November we plan on checking it out

Hi all! I'm Laila ("Hi Laila") and I'm currently planning a probably once-in-a-longtime (lifetime?) WDW trip.

I'm an Indonesian, born raised, and living in Indonesia. Way too far from the US. I've been to Tokyo and HK DL. I've also been to DLR, but of course, my ultimate dream is to visit the mothership... The biggest Disney resort of all...

Some time last month, I casually asked DH if there's any chance for us to have a WDW family holiday. Maybe next year? Next millenium? The answer was negative. Of course. Not a surprise since DH is a non-Disney, non-themepark person. Also the cost is too much - coming from Indonesia - and our son is too little (he's currently 11 mos) to make the trip worth it.

On the upside, my husband understands how much I love Disney, so after some talks, he agreed that I should do a solo trip. Ohmagahd. But then something better happened - my bestfriend agreed to come with me. It's gonna be a girls trip. Aaaaah!

So, currently, we're on the very early stage of planning. Our initial dates was in September 2014, as our priorities are low rates and (relatively) low crowds, but we're big wusses regarding hurricanes, so then we changed it to 11 - 21 Nov 2014.

Coming from such faraway country and on a tight budget, we sure have megaloads of homework to do. Wish us luck!

First things first: visa. Hello, US embassy. Sigh.
Love your story. Sounds like your going to have a great time with plenty of time to plan. Many people here to help you with any questions you have. Welcome to the dis family
