That's great news, might mean I can visit DC again at some point in the future. Keeping my fingers crossed for NYC as well!

I would be happy for a nice resort mid way so I can use my DVC points to stop along the way to our place in Spain. The deal with the DVC points for Disneyland Paris is ridiculous as you have to purchase length of stay pases in dollars for the whole time you are stopping over. Paid it last year but with the current exchange rate it is really prohibitive.

Personally I think this was a far better choice than Spain for a whole variety of reasons

Will be interesting to see what Disney's plans are for DC
