And then of course I have to make a ressie for our haircut
You can still make your adr's online if you log in to Disney website. You just have to make sure you keep all your confirmations.. Good idea to call out though..

Also, it seems easier to get adr's due to the new policy. They want A credit card to hold the popular restaurants.

For me, neither. I do try to let people know about resale, smaller contracts, and how to avoid the huge initial buy in. However, it also comes with after price of yearly dues and you still have to buy your tickets.

We only do studio stays and have only been members for 4 years. I haven't seen the "savings" like Dave references. And, since we have smaller amount of points, we won't do the 1 BR stays, so I won't get the laundry in room. But, what I can say of DVC thus far is that I have been able to stay at BLT for the same price or less at a value resort. That alone is worth it to me. That initial cost will offset itself eventually, which varies for folks depending on the amount purchased and if financing was involved.

But, these were again what works for my family. Please take it all in consideration and decide what works best for you.

I believe you have to resize them in photobucket. Make a duplicate the change the settings. Although your pic fits my screen perfectly!

It is DW's birthday today as well.... she is ummmm, well, let's just say older then 18.
I would certainly hope so.


My weekend started an hour early, and it lasts until next Thursday due to the Lunar New Year happening on Monday.

As for weekend plans, the wife has to work on Saturday and Tuesday, and, apparently, there's no water at MIL's place, due to her living pretty much in the mountains, so we won't be going there. We're just going to relax, maybe take a small road trip to Busan or Daegu or wherever. I also plan on doing some running (hopefully starting tomorrow, if it's not raining).

Happy belated bday to the PP CJ. We've decided to keep our DD in a cold place and limit her exposure to sunlight in an effort to slow down the growth process.

I have an account set up for pictures that I am going to post online. Its configured to autoresize everything I upload to that account. To get to the sceen to do this click on your username then select "account settings" then click on "album settings" then click on "view upload options"

DW emailed me frantically last night. I think she found someones math online and basically in it if we were to buy 225 SSR points from disney now including the initial outlay we'd wind up paying Disney 109K over the next 42 years. I had to explain that a) we aren't buying from Disney so our initial upfront is going to be lower by 50% B) we are buying substantially less than 225 points so our annual dues are going to be lower than projected c) that doesn't factor in inflation an other rates so it's not 109K in todays dollars it's actually less. I think I've managed to talk her off the ledge, but you're right you do have to factor in lots of things outside of the initial fee.

I think I'm talked out of it. I've been considering doing exactly what Stopher said was unfathomable...

I mean, I'd love to go every year... but I'd also like to have about 2 months of vacation to use every year, and that just ain't happening. I've thought about doing the "enough points to borrow and bank to go every 3 years" thing and then just add on down the road.
