I have never been to F&W but have stayed a few times in Oct. Strange! Just always seemed to miss it. Never caught the F&W bug but want to try attend it sometime.
Hope to see you there!

I am almost scared to post it, b/c we haven't even signed the papers yet, but my down payment has been run and the papers are on their way to us! My guide did give me a ID #, and I called MS just to see, I was in the system, so I went ahead and grabbed one of those MK views while I could! I will be making my first trip home June 19-26 in a MK view studio!!

Welcome home neighbor!!!

Congrats on the new contract and also congrats on getting a MK studio!!! As you posted earlier this week, only 20 MK view studios (and 20 MK view 1BRs) will make them very difficult to get.

When I took the BLT tour on July 12 I was able to walk around back to see the Tempo Fountain. My avatar is a photo I took of it. I walked around the whole fountain once and didn't see our tile. Then, a little more calmly, I focused and saw it. We are right along the water's edge. I was amazed at how central the fountain is. When you look from the main entrance through the lobby you can see it bubbling away. I loved the inscriptions people had chosen. Lots of "dreams come true" and even one or two references to "my laughing place". I was also surprised at how many fellow Rhode Islanders I saw. Maybe you can get someone to send you a photo of your tile once BLT officially opens--but probably it will be more exciting to just discover it on your own with your grandchildren! I didn't expect to see the fountain until my first trip home at Christmas so this was a real treat for me.

Look at post #701, and you do need the brackets.

It looks like a lot of us are first time buyers - anyone else stressing over their purchase yet? I am so excited! I have buyer's remorse before I get in the car if I buy new toothpaste, so of course a 51 year contract will get me!

Of course, I haven't even signed the papers yet, they haven't gotten here. It's hard not to get caught up in the magic of a recent WDW trip! But my theory is that I am buying a way to get that magic more often!

I have occasionally stressed some just on the off chance that somehow I am disappointed with DVC accommodations or the cost skyrockets and the value vs. Disney hotels is lost. You read horror stories about unclean rooms and poor upkeep or problems making reservations and sometimes I get a twinge of fear. After I calculate point purchase cost and dues over the life of the contract my planned stays cost me roughly what a moderate or preferred location value would have depending on the resort & season. I've enjoyed stays at Values but was mainly wanting a king (or at least queen) bed and never managed to get one there. So a DVC studio with a queen will be a nice step up. I've stayed in deluxes as a kid several times (including Wilderness Lodge and Contemporary garden wing, both standard view rooms) and do like to visit them, I just always had trouble justifying the price. I also stayed once (on developer's points!) @ the Grand Californian Hotel and DW & I LOVED that, thus the add-on there! Before buying BLT I had a "cash" standard view room at Paradise Pier booked for that trip...

But all in all, I am excited and happy 99% of the time. Plus, I've already booked out all my 2009 BLT & VGC points + borrowed most of my BLT Aug. 2010 UY's points into my 2009 UY. That done, we have 3 trips totaling 15 nights for us booked already, so lots to look forward to!!! Studios currently booked: 2 nights VWL + 1 SSR in Oct., 6 BLT LV after Thanksgiving, 6 BLT MK view including DW's Feb. 4th BD, and for my parents 3 BLT SV in Feb. (they always book standard views, usually at Wilderness Lodge or Port Orleans each trip, and told me not to "waste" extra points on a view for them- they'd just like to check out our MK view room since they are coming during part of our 3rd trip...)

I'll find out soon enough how happy I am with my purchase, and I think & hope I'll be a very satisfied member for the life of my contract!
