Hello! Well...I know you're in Disneyworld and I hope you're having a magical trip. All of the pictures of Charleston are beautiful. I really want to take a drive through there someday...on the way to Disneyworld, maybe?

Well - As you know, we are home. It was a magical trip and everyone had a great time! The weather was fabulous, the decorations beautiful, and the parks were magical. My only regret - WAY TOO SHORT! I'm not quite sure when I will update again, but I will certainly try to get to replies as soon as I can. Today was spent sleeping late, doing laundry, cleaning up, christmas shopping, and grocery shopping.

I took lots of pictures and was shocked when my 8gb card was already full yesterday morning.

I really enjoyed OKW. It has a different feel from the other DVC resorts....more laid back, more old school. We had a great room location right across from the Hospitality House so we had plenty of pool and hot tub time.

The parks were pretty crowded on Sunday and Monday, but the parks were filled with newbies who didn't use the FP system very well. That worked to our advantage.

Not sure how I will tolerate the June weather after visiting during such perfect weather, but I'm sure I'll manage!

I'm glad you enjoyed OKW, I just called Sunday to make our request for a villa close to the hospitality house. I hope we get it!

I know what you mean about the weather. It really is amazing to walk around and not be sweating...

Have a wonderful Christmas!
