2 days until my trip to the world and I am excited and nervous. I wish we were staying at our villas, but alas, this is a cash trip. Thus, it's value for us. Not gonna lie, I'm a little scared. Lol. I know our villas have us spoiled (what do you mean no coffee pot in the room?!), but must remember its still Disney after all!!

Kathy -- I know you will have a great time! And I've done a lot of research -- I read that some of the value resorts actually have quieter rooms than the villas -- due to the outdoor room entry. They have to insulate a lot better.

Honestly, we are staying at VWL to make me and my husband happy -- I know my kids are enthralled with the idea of the value theming. It sure does look like lots of fun!

You'll have to send pictures and let us know what you think! Just consider it an adventure -- getting out of the comfort zone!

I'm excited for you!

My hope for each of you is that you someday have the opportunity to experience this exceptional place.

We're here for a few more days. I'll check in with you once we're back home.

Aloha, my friends!
Sounds wonderful Diane. We can't wait to hear all about it.

Thanks Barb. My wife loves Celtic music.

Anyone sign up for the webcast from DVC? They sent out a cool preview today of the lobby of the Villas at WL.

Not sure if this link will work if you are not signed up but I will post just in case.

Thanks for sharing this Barb! I love this kind of music. We have a restaurant in Greensboro, McCouls that plays this music. It is an ecletic type place, very Irish pubby looking and food is amazing!

BTW, Craig Duncan that is listed on a couple songs, is from our hometown. I know his parents, we have done work on their home several times. They told me he plays all the instruments himself and he is self taught. I think he may have gone to college to further his studies, but def. has God given talents.

Wow! You actually have one of the performers in your town!

That restaurant sounds like a great place. Do they have live performances?
Maybe one of these days when we go see the fam, we could do a meet there for our 'on the way home' meal.

My DS was 5 when we stayed at VWL last time and he loved it. When I asked him where we should stay for this last trip, he wanted to stay there again. He loved the pool there. Really I think kids are happy most anywhere when they are young. It's all new and exciting to them. DS loved OKW this last trip and wants to go there again too.

Snowy Saturday here today. My baby brother is turning 30 today and we are having a surprise party for him. I'm excited!

I wanted to thank you all for the prayers again for myself and my work family since the death of our co-worker/family member. I'm asking for some prayers again, as the mother of this co-worker has just passed. She was my great great Aunt and was a wonderful woman. She lived a long, happy life with hardships but faced them with grace and dignity. She is being laid to rest today.

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!
