Yes, but I think showing up and saying "These 50 people are my guests" would be a tough sell.

I've been up there as a guest of people staying several times. The most "guests" we've ever had was 5, I think.

They are trying to keep it fairly exclusive, and not even letting Disney Event Services or Disney Fairy Tale Weddings book it for functions, so I'm thinking they'd frown on a "meet" up there.

Best to plan for a quiet cocktail up there some time, and plan the big stuff elsewhere.

We did have a couple DISers at the BLT and a couple of us had drinks there. But since everyone couldn't join in, the meets were planned elsewhere.
Ok Thanks... I had thought I saw some pictures of people up in the lounge but I couldn't remember if it was a GD thing or something else.

My dilemma continues -- Oh what a horrible dilemma to have

Officially it's DVC members staying on points or cash through DVC and the guests in their room with them can go up. LOL-- the never ending lounge debate

Our round trip airfare is down to $841, total for all 3 of us! Didn't it start at like $1600? This is a definite improvement!

Did you book or are you waiting? Which airline?

Okay, fair enough. Although it gets my brain squirreling away about how to get around the problem, it's still probably better not to try.

We can't book until DH bids for vacation in December. I made that mistake once already and the change fees were STEEP!
American, which is our favorite.

I am hoping WestJet will have a good seat sale so I can fly out of Vancouver rather than drive down to Seattle. Saves a lot of hassle plus we'll get 2 free bags if we fly westjet. Air Canada would be the same deal with no luggage fees but I'd rather go WJ.

I agree with the hassle, but, are you sure about the bags? I was just at the airport with my mother this week and the AC signs all indicated that travel into the US is down to 1 free bag per passenger now.

Ah.... You know just last year AC (and I think WestJet) had 2 free bags per person? (They still do if you stay in Canada.)

Yes both still have 2 bags in Canada and WJ still allows 2 bags no matter where they fly. Last time I used 2 bags was when I spent 2 mos in at my place in Italy-- i went with one, returned with 2. I generally pack light.

Oh yes, in comparison to others, we also pack lightly.

But, I pack a lot more than I used to. When I was in my 20s and travelling regularly I had a 30L backpack (fits carryon requirements and is smaller than many of the bags that teenagers carry to school everyday) that I would travel trans-Pacifically with. I'd pack my sleeping bag, 2L of water and everything else that I judged necessary for 8 days in that one bag.

Nowadays, I tend to get close to the weight limits on each of my 2 (myself and DW together) bags and thus always liked having the option to check an extra one on the way home if I purchased anything heavy.
