My family's barely planning our 2012 trip. We've never been as a family (I've been with the parents, but that's it), so we're planning a reunion before my niece gets "too big" for the princesses

I was talking to the rep on the phone, he said that you couldnt plan for F&W until 1 1/2 yrs out. That may not be so. But reguardless when I do if I get a pin code he said I could apply it to the booking. Once I book weather people go or not I will continue as I dont know if I could go again for a long time. So hopefully things dont change.

I dont know how people feel about the dining plan but my DH wants it. I wont begrudg the poor man since he is the only one working. I would like to stay close to epcot since he enjoys that area alot.

I will definitely be getting a 1br villa. That's the smallest I would consider at WDW. The question will be whether or not we do a split stay. For 10 nights we would use our full years allotment of points, but through banking and borrowing, I could probably book quite a few rooms at 11 mos (if most people were OK with studios.)

I also thought it might be fun to have a night where we cook dinner in the villa. I'd love to try some of Sharon's recipes she shares with us! : I'm not a bad cook myself . And Dana has already volunteered to make a cake!

The only hitch is that the villa is limited in cookware options. It's fine for the average family making spaghetti, Hamburger Helper, tacos, etc. On my trip for Destination-D where I made Chicken & Stuffing, Meatloaf, and Spaghetti Sauce all in one night I had to use strategic pan planning!

Bobbi is right, time is of the essence. Only a year and a couple months until we can start booking accommodations!

Will you be doing F&W at all? I know you guys aren't adventurous eaters, and if your husband is a big eater you could probably make it work for you. I'd say watch my TR when I go. I plan on eating at least one of almost everything at the F&W kiosks!

I think the cooking idea would be fun, like a pot luck supper, everyone adds something. (I could cut up a watermelon!) I think a barbecue would be possible too. The grill is at the villa pool, by the canal, a very nice area.

Someone I know emailed me that because she knows I'm "crafty in the kitchen". I really wanna do that if my parents have a Labor Bay barbecue.

I think the bunch of us are going to wind up going to Walmart to do some grocery shopping

Would you guys prefer chocolate or white chocolate? I have two cake recipes I think everyone would like

Oh I am the adventurous one, I try just about anything. He is picky. No hes not a big eater. Just picky. UGH! I dont mind a doing the cooking thing. We can certainly make it doable with what there is. 2013 seems so far away.

I'll be at Publix, haven't had the best of luck with food at Walmart...but I'll put my vote in for chocolate! Are the scratch recipies or do you use a box and add stuff to it...only saying because unfortunately they don't stock the Villas like my pantry. I usually bring a spice kit which has my most commonly used spices, plus some cornstarch and cinnamon. I have salt, pepper and vanilla in my owners locker.

We'll have to come up with a flexible menu because we at least one non meat eater and I think at least one non fish eater!

See, Publix is too pricey for me, so... Walmart

The chocolate is a doctored box (the strawberry/ganache one I posted on the last thread) and the white chocolate is completely from scratch. I'm sure I can just rent a car and run over
