Hi Granny . Looking forward to your Disney vacation?
Hey Muush!

You may have written the understatement of the year! Still five weeks to go but definitely looking forward to Christmas at the Lodge.

And looking forward to some Groupie meet reports and pictures in the mean time!!

Have a great weekend all!
It is a superb path and one rarely taken (once past the second turn-off) except for CMs who occasionally pass by in their golf carts. Often, I will run out via the nature trail then come back on the main path. Enjoy!

YAY!! I can finally post over here now. We have been longing to try VWL since our first trip as DVC owners in 09. We have booked our first trip here for next June. I really wanted a 1 BR but due to lack of points, went with a studio instead. My DH and I are so excited to stay here. Thanks for letting me stalk this thread and dream about staying here.

Congrats and welcome to the best resort in the World! Not that any of us are biased or anything like that. I'm sure you'll have a great time!

Hey, Tinks! Don't you know that we accept absolutely everyone on this thread regardless of everything!
The love of the Lodge is all that is needed.

Come, sit with us on the porch. Have something to drink and tell us what you love about our beloved VWL.
And, if you are so inclined, please grab a Moosie for your signature. He loves it when people show him off.



PS We will be going in June also, what week for you? We are going the second week.

Aaarrrrggggg!!! Please forgive my rambling but I'm back to continue with my trip dilema - darn that low airfare to Hawaii. However it's just low enough to make me think but not low enough from Reno to make it a definite. Yesterday was grey and rainy - just yuck weather. So I was getting more input from DH about staying with our WDW trip or switching to Hawaii. The input - he's 50/50.

Hawaii is so nice - my first trip there was in 1975 with my parents and I have this awesome picture of my Dad with one of the hula girls at a luau and he has about as big of a grin as I ever saw him have!

Oahu isn't our top island but I've learned there is a lot that DH hasn't done there, including Pearl Harbor so we'd have some things we'd need to get out and see. But - Christmas time at WDW is my fav. And to be there during a groupie meet and the timing was working out perfectly for the Merry Mixer too.

I think I may be off to flip a coin. If I'm fine with however it turns out then it's good. If I don't like the flip then I know which way to go. Will we be saying Mele Kalikimaka? Or just a good old Merry Christmas?

Welcome Tinks "SS"! And congrats on your reservation at VWL - you'll love it I'm certain!!!

Have any other Groupies seen John Carter? It's made it to the movie channels so DH and I watched it last night. I Liked it! (Better than Avatar IMO ) What an amazing story thought up by Edgar Rice Burroughs in 1912. I could see how the story had so much influence on 20th century sci-fi writers and directors. Thanks goodness for DVR's though - I never read the books so I needed a little rewinding to catch a few things.

We caught John Carter in the theaters, despite all the bad press. And we were pleasantly surprised also.

Ah. What a dilemma! We have never been to Hawaii, it is on our bucket list. Good luck with your decision!

Too funny. I just read your post and asked Mr Muush who John Carter was. He proceeded to say exactly what you just wrote and it is in our Netflix queue. Who knew?? I'll let you know what he says when he watches it. I'm not a fan of sci-fi.

Hey Groupies, just thought you'd enjoy this thread....

"VWL Owners, Now I Get It"

Always nice to hear someone who comes to WL/VWL with their minds open, willing to try something new. While no resort appeals to everyone, I do think VWL remains a fairly hidden gem in the DVC repertoire.
