Congratulations on your best souvenir ever!!! That's terrific-- and it's hard to be disappointed about canceling next year's trip when you know you'll be able to get back so many more times! I've heard really great things about the Hilton Head resort, too!
Can't wait to hear about your best day ever-- can't believe it wasn't DVC day!

Congrats on your purchase! DFi and I were thinking about it, but when we got the DVC planning DVD we just couldn't figure out how it would be worth it. We might go on a DVC tour anyway when we go down next summer.

I'm still here reading! Eager for more!

WOW! Now I understand the title. I was wondering how a few adult beverages and treats was going to break the bank. DVC will do it - glad it worked for you guys. Waiting for more......

I still can't believe it! Though it will be tough to stay away from WDW for 2 years.

The hotel at Universal looked amazing...I really would LOVE to see the Harry Potter area after reading your report and that resort looks worth checking out as well

I cannot believe your suprise was ruined and the bad luck you had with the room...I LOVE suprises and would be pretty ticked if that had happened to me (especially because those deliveries are not cheap!)

The server you had at Le Cellier is what I call an idiot!! I dont think I would have enjoyed his "joking" very much myself to be honest...its not that you expected extra special treatment for your pins, but you were celebrating a special occasion still!!! I know numerous people who have had to wait to take a honeymoon or who have done two trips like you did...anyway Im done my rant

I am SOOOOO jealous you purchased DVC....I think next time we are there I want to try and take the tour and perhaps convince DBF to take the plunge!!

And last but not least YAY RED SOX (though not so much this past season ) I am from MA originally

Cant wait to read more!!
Hiya, and thanks for reading!

If you go to Universal, I can't recommend the Portofino enough! It was just a wonderful resort.

Red Sox... I am looking forward to April already. Hope it's a better year!

Thank you! Glad to hear from a DVC owner. When we got home we got a bunch of weird looks from friends/family who couldn't see why we'd want a Disney timeshare. We tried to explain, but they don't get it. Though I bet some of them will be asking to use points in the future...

First, yes...aren't the toilets in POR cool? I am so glad you took a picture cause I never was able to show dh what they looked like. (you would have thought at some point in 11 nights I would have grabbed the camera )

Second, what a beautiful picture of the castle and the moment you caught...too sweet!

Third, congrats on buying DVC. I am also among the jealous!!! We have gone to Disney every year just about for the last 10...and I don't see us not continuing to go...yet, Dh would NEVER agree to buying. I think he feels it would lock us in to only doing disney...and that the cost is higher than if we just get a good deal with a promotion.

Okay, so I can't wait to hear about your best day ever!!!
The 2 hours we spent in the DVC office involved Ben and a calculator and a piece of paper. Luckily, all his calculations came out in favor of buying!
And the number of non-Disney places to go helped sway us. Though I must admit, we were kinda led to believe that using our points at non-Disney properties was a better use of points than it actually is.

You're leaving in like, 4 days!!!! So exciting!!!

Hope you have a great trip, and a great one after that, and then another one...

As hard as it was to make the call to cancel our next trip, this was the best reason to have to do it!
I am soooo excited for Hilton Head- I've been wanting to visit Charleston and Savannah for a long time, so we plan on doing some road trips while we're down there.

It really is the best souvenir! Can't wait for our first trip as DVC members.

I suggest going on a tour- if only to see the really cool mural! It doesn't take very long- we were there forever because we were trying to make really sure that this was good for us.

though our room charges were really high, you're right- the report title came from this purchase. When I first got home and started writing this, the cost was still very fresh in my mind!


Thanks for reading, everyone! And for the replies- it can be hard to be motivated to keep writing when it doesn't seem like anyone is reading!

I'm reading your trip report and enjoying it very much!! I know you didn't know that so I thought I'd come out of hiding and tell you!!

CONGRATULATIONS on your marriage and buying DVC!! DH and I went on our honeymoon many, many years ago (33 years) to Disneyworld!

I guess he was good at his job... even if he was a tad misleading on a few points. But I guess that is what makes a salesman good at selling, huh?

Yay for DVC!!! That is so exciting! I hope you'll let us know about your trips to the Disney beach resorts. The hilton head one is fairly close to us and I've thought about checking it out sometime.

I love the last picture of you and Ben. You both look so happy.

All caught up

Sorry your surprise didn't go so well, but it still turned out great and you got the ears too

Looks like you had fun on the Segway, DF did that too. How rude was that woman in the line. I cannot tell you how many rude people there were in WDW this year

Those Hello Panda's are delish aren't they. Did you try any other flavours? I remember when I went to Singapore for the first time I went nuts for those babies

I can't believe the waiter said you were on a "fake honeymoon" what an ***!!!

Sorry to hear about Otis, hope he is doing ok

Looks like you had a great meal at the Wave, capped off with Wishes at the end of the night too

Congrats on DVC, such a great investment and great home resort choice too

I'll do mini TRs for our beach vacations! I admit I am still thinking more ahead to that far-away Oct 2012 WDW trip. It's gonna be hard to be at Vero Beach, so close to Disney and not go there... hmmm, did I just get an idea?

Welcome back! Can't wait to hear about your trip!!

So it wasn't just us with rude folks... I wonder what was making everyone so grumpy and impolite?

Home already? Hope you had a great time!

I am so excited about DVC... can't wait to take our first trip 'home' to Vero Beach this spring.
You better believe I'll be sharing my thoughts on everything DVC!


And now, I am working on the next update. This turned into another crazy week/weekend and I haven't been home more than a few hours at a time!
So stay tuned, a completely new adventure is awaiting Ben and I in Epcot on our last full day...

I have no idea but it was getting on my last nerve I tell you. Why can't everyone that goes to Disney be like us Disboarders, nice and polite
