Does somebody out there know about the boat rentals at OKW? Do they have paddle boats? And can someone guide me to a price list? TIA

Just spent a week at BLT. The convenience is nice... but it was as un-homelike as I have felt in a DVC. Showed me once again why i love OKW so much.

Agreed. We had a similar feeling after a week at Saratoga Springs. SSR is quite nice but just doesn't have the "home" feel of OKW.

I agree , that "home feeling" must be shared by many because I couldn't get into OKW at the 4 1/2 month mark, so it's SSR in 6 days!

I'm going back to OKW!

Just booked a girls weekend in June! So excited! And just a tiny bit guilty not to be taking the kids.

To ease the guilt perhaps you should consider a trip in late May to Star Wars Weekends with your boys, or the 4th of July, or Halloween, or Mickey's Christmas party or . . . . ?

We just took the kids in July and bought 10 day non expiring tickets, so they will be going back, just a matter of when. We haven't been for Christmas yet. That may be next.

But I am really looking forward to June with 4 moms with no hubbys or kids. We are going to run the Expedition Everest Challenge and just do all the fun stuff we can't do with the kids in tow. Any suggestions?

JELLYROLLS....we had such a good time there. And I always feel jipped with the kids because I can't explore Epcot anymore with them. Treat yourselves to a spa day....they are wonderful there. I have only been to the one at Saratoga/once upon a time the Disney institute.....and always have enjoyed my treatment. I have heard that the one at the GF is great too.

When I did a girls weekend thing, we made certain that we planned an entire day at the pool....books, drinks, sunscreen and relaxation.

Have a great time.

Live in Montgomery County Pa, and we are being hit with our second major storm in less than a week... expecting an additional 18 to 24 inches of snow.... 60 days to OKW.... cannot get here soon enough.

We've spent our last three Christmases at OKW and WDW. Any description I try to provide pales in comparison to the reality of being there. I'll never look at fishing tackle the same way again -- as Christmas ornaments. And the clever way dead rubber chickens are used as decorations on the Streets of America is a real hoot. Of course have the kids look for the "Major Award" (the leg lamp) from A Christmas Story on display in one of the apartment windows on the Streets of America. I could go on, and on, and on and . . . . . .

I'm with you!!!! Although our snow totals are a little less than yours, but watching the snow fall right now is really getting me in the mood.
