We stayed at WLV last time, as we had never been there before and wanted to try it. Like most, it was really nice. The theming is really cool, proximity to MK is awesome, and location on the lake is great. I thought the Turf Club was better than their signature Artist Point, and the pools are not much over at WLV. Still, when you are anywhere at Disney, it's always good. Have a great trip.

Two weeks from today we will be at our Home. I can hardly wait for this trip because my DS and his DW and my DD and her girlfriend will be staying there for the first time. My DW and I love it there!

Anyone there now who could post a March activity schedule? We're super excited about our trip in 6 days.

Well, this year's THV fell apart. Some may remember my rantings, but BIL stopped it all. For those newbies, DW and I offered BIL, his family, and MIL a trip with us to stay at THV. He initially accepted, then demanded we also pay for his tickets and meals (which his mother agreed to do), and then demanded we move it to July. Then, since the BIL wouldn't go, MIL backed out as well. The apple does not fall far. My children really wanted to go with their grandmother, so I am a little disappointed. But, I really can't stand the guy and the only way I make it through holidays is to drink heavily. So, I am glad he is not going.

Now, a new opportunity as emerged. Friends have asked about going to WDW with us. She and DW were college roommates, DW and I are their children's godparents, and he and I get along really well (and get into trouble occasionally). I never really wanted to go with BIL, that was DW's idea, but they would be fun to go to WDW with. My first thought - a THV trip in October 2012 sounds great. Am I delusional to even want to try this again?

No your not crazy (I remember your post about your BIL)
A WDW trip with Like Minded friends/family can be Magical and the THV is a great place to stay. We love it.... esp love the deck try to get a water view.

We have been in both situations. We have "treated" a certain family member and her children to family trips...they were so Ungrateful and constantly complaining
We have also had many more trips with friends and other family members that were truly a wonderful experience.

Don't let him spoil your Magic.

Thanks. I struggled, but have moved past BIL. We will not ask them again, and I doubt he will ask us. As for the friends, I am happy to share our good fortune & Disney magic. We get along real well, but he has expressed an interest in WDW. We have been to swimming pools w/ each other families, & his family has done Nickelodeon/ Six Flags stuff, so I think they would have fun.

As long as you have things worked out in advance so that there are no unmet expectations and you get along well, it's a fabulous idea! We just completed two add-ons and now have enough points to take two trips a year, one by our selves and one inviting along friends. I'm working on a website for all my friends who are not so familiar with WDW with all the information that Disneyland vets have no idea about like 180 day ADRs, DME, resort transportation, etc. so that they can have some say in planning the trips we want to take.

WOW - they are making great progress! It's really looking like a great addition to one of our home resorts!

I actually thought the pool itself would be a little wider - but hey - I think it fits in very well!

Do you think this is going to make Saratoga Springs the BEST resort for spending time at the pool? (Other than Beach Club with Stormalong Bay!)

Great pictures! Looks like you took them from the same spot where I was at the end of January. Up in the stairwell? Did you have to hang your arm out to get a shot of the whole pool? That's what I had to do. Took several shots to get it just right since I could see what was in the viewfinder. But it was fun.

Thanks for keeping us updated! Be sure to tell us about your trip, too.

Edit to add: Here is the link to my pictures if anyone wants to compare and see the progress from 5 weeks before: http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=794
