Have you looked into All Star Vacation Homes? They do condos as well. I have heard good reports about them, though haven't tried them myself.

Oh, yeah, and congratulations! Booyah!

ETA I plugged your dates and 2BR condo requirement in and got several nice units available for that time period.

Y'all are the best! I have been running around getting all the last minute things taken care of --like re-booking a sitter for our 16 pets.

I am taking all of your suggestions. But! I just got off the phone with Vacation Strategies and they said I have a confirmed reservation at Bonnet Creek and it's paid for! (They had agreed to give me a refund but hadn't sent it yet!) I feel very, very lucky.

So, I think we may be okay! Thank you all so much for your help! What would I do without all of you wonderful DISers?

I still feel a little like I'm going to barf, though.

2 days in a row? Uh oh.

At least here's one instance where you can be glad someone dragged their feet over a refund!

I remember your original post and I am very happy for you! I remember being torn about whether to cancel or not and never heard the results. Try renting DVC last minute points from the Timeshare Store. They may be able to get a good for you on property if there is anything left. Good lucka and keep us posted, there has to be something. ++ I just read your post++ congrats!

Congrats! We leave in a week for a 12 day trip and thought this weekend my hubby might lose his job, but he ended up getting a significant raise. Very stressful.

We are also adoptive parents to two children, but only have 4 pets! You have 16? You must have a hobby farm?

PS...We are also staying at bonnet creek in a 2 bedroom, if you see two blonds with a 6 month old chasing two very active kids that is us!

Look into Sheraton Vistana Resort. It's right outside the WDW property and has the 2 bed/bath combo you're looking for. We were very happy there.
