I apologize if this has been asked, answered, or previously discussed.....

I saw in the Resorts thread, pictures of a rehabbed room. I'm just wondering if the DVC side is going to be, or has been refurbed?

Thanks!

Stan

Our kids have landed and should be here shortly
Did I mention I'm so happy to be here?

They received a soft goods refurb in late 2009/early 2010 I think. I might be off by a year though. Carpet, sofa and chair recover, curtains, bedspreads. And it included new TV cabinets where needed for the flat screen tv's. The DVC villas are not like the hotel rooms and not on the same rehab schedule.

So my wife and daughters are heading down to WDW tomorrow. They will be staying at BLT-LV for the week. I couldn't get off from work so quickly into my time at the new job. But I'm excited for them! My daughters are 23 and 21 so this will be the first time for both of them to be legal drinking age at WDW. Not a big deal, but it does mark a new phase in our lives when our daughters choose to order a glass of wine or a beer at dinner.

And at their ages, we know the windows of opportunity for all of us to vacation together are becoming rarer. So a week like this should be great for all my girls.

I've got a Christmas vacation at VWL booked, and I'm thinking that's our last full family trip for a while. Now all I have to do is look up the ADR lead time rules...we usually don't make them but I know if we want to eat that week we will need to have them!

Glad to hear that we have groupies in The World...hoping that the trip is going awesome Dizny Di and Dad!!

and WDad...have a great trip too!

Tanks! I'll be thinking of my fellow groupies in between extending myself to corral a 5-year-old with infinite energy!

VWL Groupies make the best dads and husbands

Did you get the time off for Christmas at the Lodge? I am assuming yes (I probably missed it) and awesome!

WD, have a great time, you too Corrine.

Oh, and all of you!

So sorry DizntDi fans; but this is Dizny Dad using her iPhone at the VWL pool side. Wonderful day; great weather; loving wife and best friend at my side: who could ask for anything more! As she reported, we spent time at one of the "other" DVC Resorts, but it just feels so good to be HOME at the lodge. I wish you all could join us here pool side just to relax and let the stresses of the day melt away.

The shadows are beginning to get long, so it is time to get back, get cleaned up, and hit the boat for that cool trip to for MK for a bite to eat with DD and DSIL.
