Even though our kids are older we always bring a selection of their favorites when they were younger. Cuts down on the whines.

We're not owners, we're renting points. May we still borrow movies if we're not owners? We're traveling with a 5-month-old and I'm looking to shed any supplies I can to make more room for the baby necessities!

Just 19 days until I check in (for the very first time) to the Villas at the Grand Californian. I have stayed at the GC Hotel before but never at the villas.

I'm really looking forward to this trip!

If borrowing is allowed, your are treated as an owner thru your stay.

Even though I am not an owner the Villas are wonderful, a hop, skip and a jump to the parks(if I could actually do that.

Have a great time,

Jack

I know you are a seasoned DVCer and I always look forward to your (real time) trip reports. Looking forward to your reviews and comparisons to the WDW DVC resorts. Especially looking forward to the awesome photos as well!

Cool! Does this mean we will get a DVC Mike "Live from DLR TR" ? I will finally get in from the beginning! I'll just need to remember to look for it since I'll be in WDW!

I didn't read through ALL the posts, but is anyone booked for D23 Expo? I was on a wait list for a studio and it actually came through! We're just staying one night, but I'm excited nonetheless.

I hope you all won't mind another question. Each villa has a pack-and-play style crib; that's what I've seen on the lists. Have any of you used them? Are they generally clean and in good working order?

Also, I assume there are temerature controls in each villa. Do the rooms tend to run hot or cold? I'm trying to pack sleepwear for our 5-month-old and she gets grumpy if she's too hot or too cold. We don't want to wake up the neighbors with a screaming baby at 2 AM!

Thank you.

The rooms run at the temp you set them at. Very nice heating/cooling system. Never used the pack and play.
