WD, I love watching your excitement for trips to WDW

Thanks Cheer4, for the pictures! Can't wait.

Question, I have not bought the travel insurance from DVC before.

We are traveling in Feb using some of our Feb 2012 UY and all of our Feb 2013 points.

Would I need to purchase the insurance for both use years? The Feb 2012 points were banked of course, so do they become 2013 points?

I'm thinking we might be better off buying travel insurance from another source to cover the trip since we will be at the beginning of our UY and won't lose the points if we cancel. I'm more worried about weather related delays that time of year when we try to leave WI.

Any thoughts?

Sorry Nicole, we never buy insurance for DVC. Cruising, yes. Maybe ask on the DVC resorts thread? Good luck!

You have to purchase the insurance for each UY if using points from more than one UY.

I'm about ready to explode! I can't wait to get through security and get on that plane!

As many of you know, my son Jesse, who is 26 years old, is special. He's a dear and we never feel sorry for ourselves for having this wonderful gentleman. Also, he has seen, with us, Monet's waterlillies in Washington, London and Paris. Anyway, one time we were going through security and my son beeped, so the man asked him if he had any metal on him and he said no, but he kept on beeping, so finally, they took a hand wand and scanned his body and something beeped in his pocket. My son pulls out his harmonica. So, this just in. Harmonicas beep if you try to take them thru security.

One other story that you may know already.

A group of nuns were visiting the, at the time, new Burbank Disney Studios and during the tour, they saw Walt's office and then went to visit the story department. One nun asks a story man how he got his ideas for their great stories. The story man was proud of his work, but decided to give credit to a higher authority. He pointed skyward and replied, "I owe it all to the man upstairs." And one nun replied, "Yes, that Mr Disney does know everything!"

I love this story. Thank you for sharing it with us. And the heads-up on the harmonica!

We would prob be going around mid Feb. Is this a busy time rental wise? I know that hotels are listed as 'peak' price during this time period usually.

From what I'm aware it's not one of the busiest but President's Day weekend can be busier. It ranges from Dream to Magic season so it's not the cheapest time but not the most expensive either. The size room will make a difference too. For a studio or 2BR I'd probably reserve as far out as possible but I'd guess you might still have luck up to 6 months out. If you have some flexibility in your dates that'll make it easier but if you have certain dates then I'd try and reserve anytime from 7-11 months ahead during the home resort booking period but you'll need to find a VWL owner to rent from in that case. I've been a few times in late Jan and the first week of Feb and that's a slower time that could usually be reserved a little closer but I think it starts to get a bit busier after that.

Love both stories! Your DS is a special man indeed. Our DS has issues but he has managed through them and we are so proud of what he has become. He works hard, values his time with family, and loves, loves, loves his trips to WDW. We are like you, fortunate to have him in our lives.
