Hi, Nancy. It was great to see you again. I thought for sure that I would see you again. I had the most wonderful time at the Disney Swan Resort. Almost everyday, I was writing Disney Swan compliment to hand in to the front dest because of the excellent service that I received.

It was wonderful.

Even as a small DVC owner, I have never enjoyed myself so much every day as I have at the Disney Swan Resort.

I was very lucky to spend a lot of time with Dan Murphy on this trip and he made my annual Disney vacation magical.

I smiled and laughed almost every minute we spent relaxing and enjoying the magic of Walt Disney World.

This is the first time that I saw him with his mobility scooter and he was an excellent driver and alway so considerate of everyone around him.

We had a great time together.

He any accepted my invitation to the annual DVC Merry Mixer on Tuesday as a guest.

Great times with friends and the incredible Disney Swan Resort.

I truly hope that I am blessed to stay at the Disney Swan Resort for my annual Disney vacation every December because I love staying there so much and I was in awe of the excellent service from everyone.

My favarite dining was for breakfast at the Disney Swan Garden Grove Restaurant where I was always able to sleep late and have a late breakfast. Wonderful.

I have a daily photo essay of my vacation on my Facebook page.

Thank you for the best vacation ever.

I wish I would have been following this thread more closely, I was there last week as well (not at S/D this time, at CSR). I would have loved to met up with some S/D fanantics!!!

I wish that I could have seen you, too, Tara; and many other S/D fanatics, too.

Sounds like a great vacation, Nancy! We head down to the Dolphin January 8 ! Fighting bronchitis now and all the Christmas busyness. Looking forward to less crowds than our normal June trip. We are hoping to ride a few favorites without huge wait times! Or... Just people watch in the Dolphin lobby with an espresso martini! ;-)

This was a really neat addition to the Christmas festivities at the S/D this year. It says every 10 minutes, seemed more like every 30 to me. When in my room, it was nice hearing the music (various songs throughout the evening) outside the window. Gives Osborne Lights a little competition.

Well, Dan - I guess my idea that we would just run into each other at the Swan didn't materialize! I was at Universal on Dec. 4 and 5, at Epcot and the Studios on Dec. 6, and at MVMCP on Dec. 7. I checked out Dec. 8 to cruise.

I will return for my almost-annual birthday trip in mid-April, and I hope to be there next December, too.

I should have as well. Didn't stay at the Swolphin this trip but was next door at BWV after PCC 4.0. Two of the nights post-cruise we went to the bar at Il Mullino for dinner. It would have been nice to meed some of the regulars on this thread.

My late Nov/early Dec stay at Dolphin was cancelled when work got in the way. So sorry I didn't get to meet up with Ray & Dan. Maybe next time.

I wasn't terribly upset though as we have our family Christmas this year at Dolphin and BCV! We fly to Orlando tomorrow morning and will be there through Christmas day!

Wishing you all a wonderful Holiday!

I should have taken one with Nancy, but I didn't want to interrupt her since she was with friends. Well...I did interrupt her, but I was so happy to see her again.

I have been posting photos of each one of my days on my Facebook page and with Dan in them, too.

Ray, I was very happy to see you, and you did NOT interrupt me! However, I usually try to avoid cameras whenever possible.
