My husband and I often regret not buying into Disney Vacation Club waaaay back when we first started visiting Disney. You know, back in the day when we didn't have a child in private school, a child in college, three automobile insurance policies, etc. etc. etc.

Congratulations!
You never run out of things to pay for do ya We started out small because we don't want to get in over our heads with maintainence fees in the days that we're paying college tuition for 3 kids so I totally hear ya!

Hopefully that time will come for you, but you don't have to be DVC to keep going back. I wouldn't rush it before you are ready

We were excited to find a small contract at the Boardwalk. It's perfect to start out! think it will all work out great for us!

I'd love to be your DVC neighbors. If you're seriously considering make sure to check out resale. It will save you a pretty penny (which is always a nice thing.)

WOW and Double WOW!!! What awesome news! I thought I understood that DVC owners can use any of the pools. True? If so, you'll be so, so close to our beloved SAB!

It's true that DVC owners can pool hop. But there are a few pools that aren't included in the privilege and SAB is one of them. Too bad, but I'm sure it would just get super crowded. All DVC members would be there! Hopefully we'll get the chance to stay at Beach Club villas and then we can return

I can't wait to make that call! I'm trying to be patient though. They said it's taking the full 30 days so I'm not going to start worrying about it until mid October. (At least that is what I keep telling myself)

Well if you’ve been following along at all, and you knew something was “right up my alley” you had to know it involved photos right? That’s right. I dragged everyone to a resort Photo Shoot. I debated over whether to do the shoot at the Beach Club or the Polynesian. I saw some great shots at the Polynesian that have the castle in the background and I was very tempted. The convenience of the Beach Club and the idea that the setting would remind us of our whole trip won out. Beach Club it was! Because I prepurchased the CD the price for the shoot including the CD and a photo package of 6 5x7’s was $70. For a photo nut like me it was worth it. The sun was pretty bright (our session was at 10:30 am) and there are some squinting problems, but here is what we got.
(Prepare yourself. There are tons!)



















































I think we got some really great photos. Normally they do some shots on the lawn with the Beach Club in the background, but I asked the photographer to focus on the beach so that is what he did.

After the shoot, the photographer said to “take a leisurely walk back to the lobby and your pictures will be ready shortly.” We took a “leisurely walk” and then we sat in the lobby and waited. And waited. And DH took the boys back to the room. And Wendy and I waited. And Wendy went back to the room. And I waited. Finally the guy showed up and I asked if the pictures were ready. “Should be,” he said. They were. I looked at them and picked out the ones I wanted for my photo package, he copied the CD and I was finally headed back to the room. By this time it was around lunchtime. No one was super hungry because of our breakfast. Where should we eat?
Your family is adorable!! Thanks for sharing your photos.
