I'm sorry Di - the 8th would work for me! I must have misread and thought you had suggested the 9th for TOTWL.

OK, I think I'm confused

I think - and I often get in trouble when I think - we are considering Saturday December the 8th - the day Muush arrives and the night before Kathy leaves. But I think my original posting suggested the 9th?

So how does Saturday evening December 8th after 8 PM at TOWL sound to those Groupies in the World?

to the groupies nala1128!

Hey groupies that got the Fastpass+ invite (I know there were a few) how did that work out? I think I might have missed your reports when you came back. I leave tomorrow but I didn't get an invitation. Just curious.

I will definitely be stopping by our happy place for a visit. I can't go to Disney & not go to the Lodge for at least a visit. Pictures will hopefully be forthcoming although I'm not sure I can possibly find anything I haven't already taken a picture of!

Only 68 more days until our Christmas stay!

For us it worked great. We chose 2 rides and 2 parades for our experiences.
I was told the tryout was only for 1 week and was sent to those using the Magical Express. None of the cast members could tell me how it would ultimately work in the future, but they said it was still in an imagineers head.

I wanted to try the parades to see how they did it. It was similar to the handicap area, but it was a great location and they really monitored it so that no one sneaked under or even very near the ropes and since they had specific numbers assigned for that event, it was not crowded like the handicap areas can be.

It was neat when the card was scanned, it showed the celebration and even though the kids were wearing their buttons, they got an extra Happy Birthday since it was noted on the Fastpass + card.

Another thing I liked is that if you forgot what time one of your experiences was, you could go to a machine and it would give you a list on the screen. I think it will be interesting to see how they finally decide to incorporate it.

I take issue with that! Years ago DiznyDi thought we should make VWL one of our home resorts. Great Thinking!

So excited......I called MS this morning to add on at VWL!!!!! I was really hoping for 50 pts but they only had 25. I took it!!!

We've never stayed here but I am hoping to switch from SSR to VWL at 7 months for our May/June 2013 trip. My mom is coming w/ us so I'm hoping we can get a 2BR Villa. Do you think I'll have any problems??

Woo-hoo.....love my DVC!

The 8th will work for us, we may bring 2 friends from back home who will at WDW the same time if thats OK. They are on the fence about buying DVC so this may help push em over the edge

Barb
I wish that was Stan, he would still be here with us I have seen that fellow but cant remember his name, maybe Jim?

Oh my goodness, you are right. I looked so quickly and thought it was him.

AND I didn't catch the date. I need more coffee.........

Thanks Muushka......he was so nice....and he seemed so humbled when my husband and I asked to have a photo with him

Oh....not Stan...but now that I think of it, he sure does look like him. I tried to enlarge the photo to see the name badge, but it just gets too pixelated to make out.

Nice to have you back with us Maria! I kept up with you via your FB postings. Isn't it tough going back to the real world and work?! Nice picture of you with Ranger ? A pleasure to have the memory of Ranger Stan in the similarity.

Julie, so sorry you didn't get the Fastpass+ invite. From Kathy's experience, sound like it was a nice added bonus. Enjoy your trip to the World!

WELCOME HOME Snoopygirl! Moose dust you're able to make the switch at 7 months. You will love this resort!

Jimmy, your friends will be most welcome! Are they Disers? What a nice group we will have!

That's ranger Don. The other ranger is Jack. They needed 2 to fill in for our Ranger Stan!
