Has anyone been there lately and can confirm that the 10-12 cup Mr. Coffee makers have been replaced?
Oh man, kill me now, if this is true I purchased a second Owner's Locker to hold my Keurig, in May. I had to pay my annual fee for my OL Sept. 1st. lol.

Hold On! I haven't been there since such a change may have been made, and we, too, have a second OL primarily to hold our Keurig, but many of the hotels are now changing to the "pod" type single serving coffee machine, but they are NOT keurig. The ones I have expereinced are a filter pack type pod that do not resemble a K-Cup in any fashion.

So before throwing the rope over the patio railing, let's hope we hear from someone at The Lodge to confirm such a deal!

I kind of hope the coffee makers are being replaced by something, on my 2 previous trips, both coffee machines were broken. I thought I had heard they were changing out the hotel side coffee makers, but not the DVC ones. I was last there in April, and it was still the Mr. Coffee maker, but I'm sure someone has been more recently than me!

This question keeps popping up but everytime it's been confirmed that the Villas have not switched over.

And as was mentioned - the resort hotels aren't switching to K-cups. They've switched to a pod system (cuisinart if I recall - I drank them for a week at CR in Feb). It sounds like John and Brian at OL might set up a protest if the Villas switched!


Hi DLI!!!!!! Nice to see you and your wiggling Corgi back here!!

Kathy is correct - we were just at VWL and Kidani and the villas are (for the time being) still the standard 12 cup coffee makers we're accustomed to. If they ever do change these over to any type of cup/pod system I will be very displeased.

Disney DVC doesn't know what I'm like when I'm displeased... they should ask my kids before making any rash decisions

Me too but we got our new one in Dec. Main purpose of 2nd OL was to hold the Keurig. I don't know what I'm going to do if I ever have to give up my OLs & ship all that stuff home!

Hello groupies! I've been remiss in not getting a post up since we returned from our DCL Dream cruise. We LOVED it!!! We had so much fun & we can't wait to go again. Now I'm just counting down the days until our Christmas stay at the Lodge!

Boys went back to school last week & we adopted a new puppy a week ago Monday. It's been a little crazy here since then. I'm not getting much work done since everyone deserted me for school & work! To say he needs a lot of attention would be an understatement. Our older dog is not liking having a younger brother very much. New pup tries so hard to play with her but she wants nothing to do with him. I feel a little bad for him. Hopefully things will calm down over the next few weeks as he gets older & she gets used to having another dog around.

I'm off again this weekend to check out the Sandals resorts in Jamaica. It's a work trip but they do allow us a small amount of free time. Thankfully our nights our free. A couple of my fellow agents I became friends with at training are also going so it should be fun. I feel bad leaving the new dog though. Too much going on here for me to be going away but this trip was planned months ago so not much I can do about it now except to just go.

Hope everyone in groupie land is doing well!

Ok, we're not coffee drinkers so have pity on me. I've heard of the keurig but exactly what are they.

I think I'm really out of the loop, I just realized I've never been in a starbucks either.

Tea drinkers here.

Congats on the new puppy!! Tell him not to take the rejection to bad, Rizzo the rat wasn't to fond of Sid when he first gazed upon him. Kept asking us when the new baby was going "home".

Dh and I visited Sandals many, many years ago. We did the one in Ochos Rios, the one aspect we didn't like about it was that you couldn't dine by yourself. They kept pairing us off with other couples every night. We're pretty socialable but by the third night we were ready for some 1 on 1 time. this was a long time ago so hopefully they give you the option. Grounds and resort were stunning though.

DH and DD are the only coffee drinkers in our house. I love my spearmint hot tea in the morning and iced tea the rest of the day. Kati has thought about getting the keurig, but went with a small coffee maker that uses her favorite flavored Folgers that only makes one cup at a time, which is all she drinks.

Kati and I like Starbucks, she is a little more adventurous than I am, since she likes coffee, but I do love their vanilla bean frappuccino.

Aw Kindred Spirits.... Starbucks does have a good chi tea hot or cold

Horselover Congrats on your new Puppy




We have a new addition as well
another rescue Kitty
this poor thing in the worst shape I've seen
she was apparently left in a crate for weeks or months
unable to walk due to muscle wasting, just under 5 lbs
with a sweet gentle personality about 5 yrs old.
I'm happy to report that she is walking.. well barely.
She drags her hid end like she is cross country skiing
but is getting stronger ever day.
We usually foster these kitties but this little Muppet has
already found her forever home right here.

OK back on topic 8 Day Happy Dance
Corinne looking forward to a mini meet Sending you a PM soon

Oh Joy. I had to read your post a few times to absorb what you said, not believing anyone.....well, lets just say I am tenderhearted towards animals and so sad and happy for that beautiful kitty at the same time.

Bless you for giving this kitty a forever home.
Please keep us updated (or at least me, you have my email) as to how she is doing.
