Actually we're looking at a Jan/Feb 2013 trip. Fran loves it when I span the 1st so rent checks don't go in until late! We get to Disney property on the 30th and leave on Feb 7th. I just booked our outbound ME. We need to figure out our rental car since we need it for the Universal part, but need to return it once we get to Disney.

So now that Fran has thrown that whole fly from Orlando back to LA. Rest two nights back to Atlanta thing (which I think will be a disaster), I convinced her that we should add on some of the days beforehand that we would have afterwards. We will plan on checking in at the BCV on the second, but maybe precede that stay with a few nights at the VWL and try out our new points that we have there, finally!

If that is the case we should nail down our dates since 11mos is coming up soon!

Sounds great! I'll work the rest of my plans around the WDW dates.

So while PIO was here we played around with some dates. While the 11 month mark was today (now yesterday), we were too busy running around DL to book anything. What we figured out was that booking a two bedroom lockoff for one week was only 18 more points than booking a one bedroom for five nights and a studio for one week.

With that in mind, I'd rather just book the lockoff even if we take off a couple days early. PIO and her family can enjoy the 1 bedroom part of the unit after we leave and that way we know we will be in close proximity to each other during out stay, but in separate units. And then they don't have to check in and out of the unit on the day we check out.

I'm going to book it (since there is no penalty) and then we'll work out the details as it gets closer!

Ok..I will book Thursday to Sunday, 3 nights now, studio BCV.. When/ if I get a schedule I can extend. I would be missing 1 class with these dates. Depending on the schedule, I could add Wednesday or Sunday nights and still miss just one if I came in Wednesday after work. I will ask for a T/TH schedule, but most part timers prefer that!

Its great to see this meet taking shape!

Bobbi

PS. That's 3-6 October.

There's no way I'll be able to make it I've had to push school back, so there's just no way I'll have the money or the time to go

Actually by DVC booking you are looking at Oct. 2-9 that's what threw me off on your dates. They want to know check in and check out. I realized one snag in the whole plan we're on. If you guys want the dining plan, we have to make a separate reservation. We should figure that out before it gets too far along and rooms sell out.

We can't eat enough food to justify any of the plans so we just get the TIW to cover our TS meals, we really don't eat at CS meals. We either cook in the room or just split a CS when we're hungry to save room for the TS meals. We still spilt an entree.

Yeah, me too. But such is life, you know? Getting into and through school is my priority right now. I'm hoping to start in June or July at this point, so we'll see what happens.
