Is it wrong to pick a resort based on the dis thread???
HAHA yes, because by your theory, then EVERYONE would be attending in December 2012!!

Yeah, that thread drives me nuts. I Have to unsubscribe after every question. But the resort is so freakin' awesome. The only reason we're not there the whole time is location. I just can't give up that walk to Epcot.

Now, I have never stayed or visited AKL, but all I have heard is that "it's so far away from everything." On a positive note, it looks beautiful and I heard Boma is great. However, I think you should keep CSR or choose WL because YOU CAN TAKE A BOAT TO MK! Come on, how awesome is that?!

Do it! Do it! It's supposed to be a cooler winter, so I am sure you will find use for it

Thanks to Valgoof, I am now considering upgrading to the GRAND SUITE at the GF for only a difference of $10k! Should I do it?

I agree the boat is pretty awesome!! We will have a car though, so not worried about the distance.

DH stayed at VWL years ago with friends who own DVC. So he is not as excited about WL as I am. But he did say the boat was nice and he didnt like that you had to walk to the main building for breakfast. I don't think we have ever discussed AKL. If I asked him, he would say POP since it is still the cheapest.

Jumping in here we are headed back for Christmas on 12/12 - 12/27 hitting all the Disney parks (annual pass holders) plus Universal/Islands of Adventure (50% discount due to incident last year...going twice) Busch Gardens & Discovery Cove (2nd time). We have done this trip for the past two years as a family Christmas present and look forward to it.

We almost had our Disney vacation cancelled!



DH and I set up a new checking account last month so that we could save up to pay off our Disney vacation balance. I deposited the last of it yesterday and sent over the debit/credit card info to our TA. They received the info and we thought that everything was well and good. Our vacation was being paid off. No such luck .

Our TA submitted it to Disney and it was declined 3 times! There's more than enough in the account to cover the balance so I called the bank. Come to find out that b/c we only opened the account last month, we have a POS limit of $200 during the first month. It would not be increased until the 15th, which is our 45 day mark ! I explained our situation and the rep talked to her supervisor to see what could be done. THANKFULLY, as a courtesy, he increased our limit so that we could pay off our balance . I told the rep that she just saved our vacation!

I immediately called our TA and explained why it wasn't going through and that I cleared everything up with the bank. She could try it again and this time it should go through. Got a call a few minutes later that it did and we are now OFFICIALLY PAID IN FULL We are now 49 days away from "The Happiest Place on Earth"!
