we stayed at a studio at the beach club this trip! Loved it! thats why I think we need to buy DVC...it will make the deluxe's more affordable and you can;t go wrong with the extra space (well when staying in a one bedroom or more) unfortunately the studio is not any bigger than a regular room but it did have the little kitchenette that we hardly used...LOL! and the drawer space was pittiful. we used 2 drawers of DS's clothes and he is 16 mos old...so we could fit all of his clothes but we knew not much of ours would fit in there! Hopefully the other bigger villas have more space! DH and I had to live out of oursuitcases and then keep them zipped so DS did not throw clothes all over the place!

Hi Blue,

The problem of being the only one in the house without a computer is I end up starting on page 6 of your tr and page 50000 of Jordans. Anyway, hail, hail the gang's all here. Now the fun can really start.

You should get him to go on a tour. For some reason I guess my DH just needed the visual. Doing the tour also got us a $100 gift card.
$100 gift card? He'd go on the tour to get that

You'll be so spoiled, you'll have to add-on. I'm sure that has occurred to the folks at DVC. I'm jealous of your extra points though. We have 200 and still had to borrow some from this year's allotment for last year's trip. This year we won't be at Kidani too long, so that will help replenish the points.

Good luck on getting the reservation you want. Those guides can pull some strings.

Well sometime when you're perusing it go ahead and post and make it official.

I know the pitchers you're talking about -- they're called quick-stir pitchers. They just came out with new ones with a better plunger. (DW just had an open house today to introduce new products. )

Congratulations on the DVC purchase, now that is really exciting!!! Great start to your TR too! We just got home yesterday afternoon. I'm still doing Depressing Dirty Disney Laundry "DDDL" for short.
AH-HA!!! There you are. You must have posted the same time as me earlier and I totally missed it.

That is too funny about your DH Did you see mine look at me when you said you saw my dancing pictures on Jordan's thread?? Of course he already knew about it but he just gave me that look like "uh-hu, see it could have been a crazy person!"

Thanks about the DVC!! We are excited!

UGH!!! I hate DDDL!!

Too funny about the suitcases. The 1 bedrooms have a lot more room. We usually stay at OKW. They have plenty of drawer space and closet space for all of our clothes. It's pretty nice!

I'm too excited to sleep! I want to call and book and bank. It's driving me nuts right now.

Oh nice!! New pitchers!! And just in time for spring/summer.

Hello again, I just caught up and am excited for you on your DVC purchase. AKL is so neat, I hope you have many years of wonderful family vacations there. I own a barbeque restaurant and am always glad to help people with their allergy questions. Mostly they are cylliacs (sp?) related, but anyone who works with food should know what is in the food and know how to relate the ingredients to their customers, sorry for all your trouble. My family is going to the world in June, but we will be traveling June 7th to June 13th so we will just miss you-bummer! We are then going to the beach for my daughters graduation trip because I won't let her go to senior week. She was glad for the compromise though because we are taking her friend with us. My children are 19, 17, 15 , and I am so excited that they all are excited to go on this trip since they are older and cooler! Ha ha! The last time we all went was in 2006, and usually I go in October for a week with my boyfriend of 12 years. So I love reading all these trip reports to get tips for our trip. Thanks again for sharing your family's experiences.

Hey Blue!

Wanted to add my congrats to the DVC buy in!! Must be a fun feeling to know you'll be going back EVERY year!!

I doubt we'd ever do it, but it does sound enticing! I think if I were to choose, I'd AKV!!!
