I'm sorry your request was not met, and really sorry about the naked fat guy

I know the hotel tries to honor requests, but only if the villa you want happens to be empty on your check-in day. The villas must be assigned a week or more in advance to ensure that lock-off pairs match

We just cancelled our annual WDW trip because we have gone over budget on travel expenses for business trips for our home business. We are lucky we live within driving distance to Disneyland, and now plan to use all of our points staying at VGC, or the hotels over the course of the next year.
We had planned an Aulani trip, but the airfare is unreasonable at this time for us. So, we are planning out 2-3 day trips to DLR over the coming months.
We haven't been to Little Mermaid, or Star Tours yet, or Paradise Gardens. If we can book a villa at VGC, or waitlist one, we'll be ready with a cooler filled with groceries for grilling, or cooking in room, at the last minute.
It's just so relaxing to just hang out at the parks, go on a few attractions, and go home to a villa and cook dinner. A glass of wine, or cocktail, and go back out to DTD, or the parks that stay open late. Wander around the shops, and then back to the villa to sleep in late, heaven.

I have these two big trips planned to WDW but then I'm going to be using my points for DL. I'm in Sacramento but have to adult kids in LA so it makes for a very nice vacation .... a few days with them and a few at DL ....

I forgot to mention, I forgot 2 purses in the drawer next to the bed. One had my badge for work. It was never found or turned in =(. Everytime I called they just transferred me to Lost and Found. This went on for one week because I just kept getting voicemail and no one ever returned my phone call.

I was hoping they were just going to mail it to me, but it never turned up.

Why?

We just returned from our lovely pool view room at the GCV, and I got a text from my DH which said, "Why are we not still at Disneyland?" I didn't have a good answer. Our next trip is planned, but none for next year, yet. It's always hard to leave and always fun to plan the next trip.
I knew all of you would understand.

My wife and I just bought in at VGC through a resale. We're very excited to be owners at the best DVC resort of the bunch. I've enjoyed this thread and appreciate the bits of wisdom I've been able to pick up while reading.

I'm looking forward to all of this in just 18 days now!

(Although I have been on Star Tours a dozen times and the LM a few as well!)

Hi all!
We're booked for January 31st through February 3rd.
We'll have a 1 bedroom. Is there a certain way to request a room where we can see WOC from the room? Or should I just request theme park view?
Thanks!
