We have had addonitis 3 times now and we still find ourselves point poor. Glad to see I am not alone!

Rather than adding on at VGC though, we may be looking for a small contract at Saratoga Springs to use for our WDW and Aulani trips. We loved Aulani and can see us returning there every few years and like to squeeze in a trip to WDW once in a while and it kills me to use my VGC points for anything other than VGC. I love my home resort!

We have a June UY and did our last add on direct last February after an amazing stay at VGC for the Tinkerbell Half Marathon. Getting ready to stay there again for the event and could really see this becoming an annual thing for our family. My constant state of borrowing is really stressing my dh out.

I've rented points before, but only to people I've either been friends with or friends of friends. I also have to be in a place of abundance of points to do it. So far I'm doing pretty well on using up my 2012 points and a lot of the 2013 ones are spoken for too! If they bring back F&W in CA, then I will be getting on that waiting list for more points at the VGC!

I'm officially out of point until 2015!

My husband has officially decreed 2014 a no travel year

Was supposed to be this year after our trip to Aulani, but we decided to get APs so we'll now be going to Disneyland 3 times!

Our first was Christmas week. We stayed offsite to save points and use my husband's Sheraton points. Man was it difficult to walk by the Grand and not go up to our room! We even hung out in the lobby one day. It was raining so the kids sat down and watched cartoons while my husband and I relaxed and enjoyed the Christmas decorations. I was so envious of all those folks checking in!

I now have a VGC stay booked for the 1st week of June and 2nd week of Dec. I can't wait to walk into the villa and feel at home again! Also looking forward to the pools/spa and proximity to Carsland!

So I'm out of VGC points until 2015, but I still have my SSR points staring at me. What to do!

If not, I may be able to help. I have WAY too many points since they canceled the FW Festival. In fact I just booked a Grand Villa for one night in November for the sole reason that I could! That was with banked 2012 points and I still have some 2012 points left to play with not to mention no current plans for my 2013 points either.
If the points don't come through we'll have to talk about some 2013 points. Thanks!

Nope - it's not spread evenly.

Time to guide your guide! (JK - not even a consideration).

Yea..I thought the statement was odd..but my guide is a senior guide and well respected so I certainly wasn't going to question him.
