they're all online, as they're replying to other people, i've had a couple of people say "i'll let you know if i've got any points left", ie: as i'm only looking to rent 13-17 points, its not important to them, so they'll leave me til closer to the time. i want to book it now while i can!!

I missed alot on here yesterday!! Karen, good luck with the DVC point renting. We stayed at the Boardwalk last year, it was nice except that our room was really far away from the entrance and there aren't entrances by the ends of the hotel like in the other deluxes because of all the shops and restaurants on the ground level. But the pool is really neat, the slide is the best, except for maybe the Beach Club/Yacht Club.

The rooms at the Contemporary are AWESOME now. They were a little too funky for me before. You can either get a view of the MK, or a view of Bay Lake. And with a view of Bay Lake, you get to see the Electrical Water Pagent every night from your room, which is really neat. The food court at the Contemporary is also really good.

The Grand Floridian isn't as formal as it looks. Really, there are tons of kids running around screaming at the pool, just like at Pop. And the rooms are nice there too, the carpet in the halls is like 50 inches thick or something, it is SOOOOOOOOOOO cushy to walk on on your way back from the pool. My MIL and I go to tea there every trip now, we tried it when we stayed there a couple of years ago and now we are hooked!! It's jut nice for a girls afternoon.

I'm excited for this trip, because we are staying at Saratoga, where I have never stayed. After that, I just have to stay at OKW, and all 3 of the all stars and I have stayed at all of the hotels!!

Karen, I just thought of something. If you can't rent the points at the Boardwalk, you could try staying at the Swan or Dolphin. They are also really nice (although they aren't Disney, still nice), and you can get them for pretty good prices most of the time. Just in case.

So, we have a shower!! YEA!! Although we have to take back the doors because one is warped and the other is scratched...at least it works!! So no more commuter shower for me!!

I am all over the place here...Jen, the WL is super nice!! I stayed there in January for the Marathon weekend with my dad. The lobby is beautiful, I think the only cooler one is at AKL. And the grounds are really nice. We were going to rent bikes to ride over to Fort Wilderness but we ran out of time. The boat to MK is really convenient, it only stops at MK and WL. Also, we took the boat over to Fort Wilderness for lunch one day at Trail's End, it was really good, and very reasonably priced. Yea for WL!!

we really want to go back to AKL club level, but i've been told its not available, think if we stay without the club level we'll just be comparing it to last time. so that kicks that option out.
someone has got back to me, she was offering points for $9 each, but because i want so few, she wants $13 per point. think i might offer $11 (meet in the middle) and see what she says. i'm waiting for her to come back after she's checked availability.

mary, yay for your shower!! bet that'll make your mornings easier now you dont have to go across town for a shower!

That kind of stinks about the points. We always book our rooms through our castmember friend that works at POR (except for during the free dining bounceback). Sometimes, she gets 60% off the rooms!! It's nice to know a CM. When we stayed at the GF, I think we paid like $170 per night or something like that. WAY cheaper than rack rate!!

i've just checked disneyworld.com (not sure why) and there's AKL club level showing, its $388 rack rate for the room, i really want to go back there, but i just can't justify that much. wish i knew a CM!
even with the $13 a point, BWV is only going to cost me $156. last year i managed to get a AP discount on the AKL, but it was still about £175 a night with a really good exchange rate. the exchange at the mo is a lot worse than last year, so that'll push the price up even more.
wish there was a way i could get a discount on the AKL, i really want to go back

we are gonna eat at Whispering Canyon for breakfast the day b4 we leave for the cruise that is also when we are going to Epcot and i think we are eating dinner at planet hollywood mainly b/c greg wants to go to DTD and walk around and he said we should eat dinner there so we can just walk around and not feel like we have to leave to go somewhere else. We are doing AK that monday and we are hopeing to be back to the resort kinda early so that we can sit on the beach and see the electrical water parade it starts @ poly.
Greg is looking forward to meeting all of the people i have been talking about on the boards (he asks me every day how are mary, karen and Jen doing?)
