Refelections count and that is a reflection in a mirror !!!!! I will appeal to the rules committee !!!!

Beautiful Villa and excellent view. You did win the Villa Lottery.

Everyone looks very happy with the Villa.

Looking forward to hearing who actually got the Judy sightings right this time.

Well, the Rules Committee zoomed-in on whatever that is in the reflection in the microwave and they can't tell what it is. "Definitely Judy's hair" per Marv, is a major stretch. Actually, we super-zoomed in on the teapot and we think she is in the room, but appears to be more towards the kitchen area where I was taking the picture, not in the middle of the living room. So, whatever that is in the microwave isn't going to count as a Judy, but the Rules Committee agreed to give Marv an Eagle Eye point for being so....eagle eye-y.

That means that Magdalene gets the point for this round because yes, those are indeed Judy's feet in the picture of the carpeting, and then of course there are 4 more obvious ones. Congrats Magdalene!

Updated scores:
Jenn (elphie101) - 1 Judy-sighting win, First Subscriber Honors!
Tanya - 1 Judy-sighting win
Pat - 3 Judy-sighting wins
Rosie - 2 Judy-sighting wins
Marvin - 4 Judy-sighting wins, 2 Eagle Eye points
Kelly - 1 Judy-sighting win
Mark - 2 Judy-sighting wins
Molly - 1 Judy-sighting win
Dan - 1 Eagle Eye point
Kathy - 1 Judy-sighting win
Dee - 2 Judy-sighting wins

They're very nice! I can understand your dilemma, they not only look nice but also have the added benefit of a kitchen and laundry, which the studio's don't have. We're planning on going to Aulani in a couple of years, just Judy and I, and I can't justify getting a bigger unit than a studio but I already know that we are reallllly going to miss having a kitchen and laundry.

You're not going crazy...they're placed differently every time I log on. It's very frustrating. It seems like the best thing to do is to memorize the coding of the ones you most commonly use.

There's room to sit, yes, but with the vegation you wouldn't be able to see the beach -- probably more like the water out towards the horizon.

It was nice, but Spoiler Alert -- it was the last of the graduation-well-wishes for Lauren.

I think you will all be very happy there.
It was a great suite. I'm afraid that if we ever go back, we'll be disappointed with anything less!

I'm glad you didn't attempt to spell armoire.

The decor is nicely beachy, with the colors and the turtle tiles and painted items.

I finally got a point!! And I actually verified that it was Judy's feet before my first post - there are pictures that show both Marlene's and Lauren's feet, so I knew that neither of the two had white shoes.

The laundry is one thing that makes truly consider the one bedroom. My next trip might be longer as I am thinking of adding a cruise. So being able to do laundry in my own villa would be very convenient. The studios still have free access to a laundry room - but there you need to hand around while the stuff is in there.

Way late here but 5 definite and the I am actually going to agree with Marv here. ( I know, what is the world coming to? ) for number 6.

I was out of town and only had my phone. I think if time stamps are not messed up again, looking at it around the time Marv was but the size of the pictures on the app did not allow the super zooming so I had to catch up when I got home and if you can see the reflection, it does look like Judy.

I know points are already awarded but I thought I would just chime in.



What a gorgeous view. I actually just stopped and stared at the at view for a while.

My recent point addition will allow a one bedroom stay once and a while. Certainly don't need it when travelling solo or can really justify it but is sure nice to have the space and the laundry.

Home from India and glad to see more updates.

Thanks for the pictures of the Vero suites Glenn. It may be years (or never) before we are there as my mother has a house by the beach on the gulf so it would be hard to justify. It does look nice and is very tempting if that view could be guaranteed.

That is great that you can stay in a one bedroom to conserve points. When we take our three kids it is a two bedroom or we would have dead people in our family.

Darn I just can't win !!! It was a reflection of a shadow so does that make a difference????
But Marv didn't win either so I am sure he will be appealing to the Rules Committee

Dee - 2 Judy-sighting wins
Magdalene - 1 Judy-sighting win
Another one of those inexplicable random rulings by the Rules Committee. As I pointed out, Judy IS indeed near the kitchen as evidenced in the picture immediately after (check the time stamp on the picture), and based on her location with respect to the kitchen island, she is located immediately out in front of the microwave. Since James, Marlene, Lauren.............and even Glenn have hair that is "flat" to their heads, and the reflection in the microwave shows hair "sticking up" as Judy's does, it is a huge stretch to say otherwise than that is indeed Judy! That is way more obvious than a silhouette in a supposed mirror of a store, especially when a silhouette is the same as a shadow............

Yes, have been to HHIR three or four times. Had to figure out how to use up all those developer points somehow when we bought into DVC. Not really the layout as much as the look of the building on the outside, and the decor in the rooms that remind me of HHIR.
