Tossing around 2013 WDW -

Hubby and I possible mini trip in August - if it fits into our
DC trip in August to visit Daughter and Son-in-law. Husband is off
for 2 weeks each August thru job. I am at a school and I am off July and August.
2 weeks? Thats wonderful. DC and Disney sound perfect. Would you do a week in each?

Quote:
Children did the TOT 10 mile Run end of September it is the opening weekend of F&W , but they want to do the Half Marathon in November the end of F&W the first weekend of November instead. Last September even though the run was at 10pm it was very hot and humid.
I would rather go in September because I love the hot weather more then going the beginning of November because it will be cooler.
One nice thing is that some of the Holiday decorations will be in place
in November. We will see---

I found September hot and humid too. I think I'd opt for when you can see some of the decorations but either would be great. Any time at Disney is better than not.

Quote:
Last July when our daughter was married - they took a mini Honeymoon.
She is in education and finishing her PHD and they had limited time -
so they planned a Honeymoon for their First Anniversary. They are using some of our DVC points thru RCI and traveling to Spain for a week.
They will go to Paris for a week after that, but do not have to use points for that week. The son from the family that she lived with when in college
has an apartment his employer has for him in Paris. He lives in Brittany,
but works in Paris during the week. He is giving them the use of the apartment for a week and he will be off work that week.

What resort did they get in Spain? Spain is one of the places we're looking to go this year for our 20th. Not sure I want to use my points though. last night at dinner we decided we want to spend Christmas 2014 at Disneyland but oh my gosh, the points are high. And Paris, how fabulous! Will they visit Disneyland Paris?

Quote:
So --- figuring the resort, season, points for the number of bedrooms
is a lot of fun thinking. We do not have unlimited points. We do like having the kitchen and the washer/dryer instead of a few studios and also order too much food - I need to get that under control -
because there are some restaurants we like to visit, too !

Happy and Healthy 2013 to all !

Any Disney decision for you ?
We don't have unlimited points either. In fact we have very limited points. I really need an add n at the GCV. Like really.

Happy healthy 2013 to you too.

As far as Disney decisions it looks like official we're going Dec 2014. 713 days.

Thanks friend! We did get to see some incredible animals and they were all chill too. We seem to have some good Disney mojo. While we don't go nearly as often as we like, we sure have a blast while we're there.

What are the chances at 7 months for Christmas? Scary high on the points. I am dying to go, need to figure out a way somehow but just don't see it happening anytime soon, spring break 2014 is about the earliest it seems to figure in but 2015 is probably a better fit for the group which sounds so far away!. At the rate we are going, despite is being much closer, they'll have built a carsland in FL before we get to Cali!

First off, I'm so sorry to hear about Riley. It's awful when you know your pet is on a limited time basis. I know we all have only so much time, but when they put a time stamp, it's just even more painful. Make his life wonderful for what is left.

McKenna's Creek was at the Marketplace (PCH & 2nd/Westminster). There was a Lone Star Steakhouse in it's location, many other before that and now it's a Tilted Kilt (Scottish Hooters ). It was around in the late 70s early 80s.

We didn't make it there

I'm hoping that the wounds will be healed up by our WDW trip, but even if they are, I will need to bring supplies in case something opens back up again.

I think when she started with this Doctor (back in May) he told her they work with a 16 week time frame. Obviously she has exceeded that. We were joking about how everywhere we seem to have the largest files, the vet, her arthritis doctor. They mentioned that she has one of the largest files in their office too!

I knew about the surf's up sign, but somehow I didn't think that your kids would get a lot of that growing up in Utah. Even if their parents came from California!

Looking forward to your Boma Coma!

Fair chance but not impossible right at 7 months. Our friends want to join us. I'm thinking I may rent points and split the cost with them. I'm not quite sure but of course since we discussed it last night, I'm totally planning. Even 713 days away.

Are they building a Carsland in WDW?

I'm surprised it wouldn't be impossible right over xmas, that's cool Nothing official yet, lots of rumors of something along those lines either full or partial going back with the backlot tour is/was.

Nothing wrong with planning 713 days away, that is easily how long our next years NYE trip has been being discussed.

Thank you. You're right, the time stamp makes it worse for sure. It's hard to think anything else when I am with him. He's such a good dog. He's been so much fun and given us a lot of love.

I don't remember it but was in Cypress during the 70's and 80's. The Scottish Kilt is a great name.

I'm sorry. Did you watch it? The Carsland float was unreal.

Your trip is so soon! I hope she's healed soon but thankfully she's got you if they're not 100%. I'd bring supplies no matter what. If you have them, she'll be fine. If you forget them, she'll need them.

Are you all ready for the trip other than packed of course?

Fran is like my Chloe. At 14, she's got a huge Dermatology file, Neurologist file, and Endocrinologist file. We're well versed with Primary Children's Medical Center. Hopefully we can start titration Chloe off of her seizure medications in the next few months. Fingers crossed.

You can take the girl out of California but you can't take the California out of the girl. I've indoctrinated them from Utah. We've got beach scenes, shells, nautical decor all over.

My Boma coma cis are funny. Joshua is a good sport.

I'm glad I'm not alone in my crazy long countdowns.

I hadn't heard anything about Carsland in WDW. That'd be awesome! Who do you rent points through? I'm thinking I'm going to need to rent for the Dec. 2014 trip.

All rumor and speculation at this point. I've never rented point but would think 11 month for GCV would be huge, 7m would make me nervous. Heck I'm nervous for WDW booking at 11 for NYE! David's is the big advertiser around here but he's on the pricier side @ $13 per point. The Timeshare store I think has them at $12. Other than that you can go to the rent/trade board and do it that way. Lots of folks do but it makes me nervous but I'm sure it would be fine and the price point is a lot better that's for sure. If I were going to do it though, I'd hope to find a DISer I knew or a very well established poster....or go through David's I guess. I'd rather do a transfer but I know lots of folks aren't willing to do those.

Happy Monday --
Not sure how the 2 weeks in August will work yet -
Drive to DC and fly to WDW then return to DC and drive home ?
Visit DC and go home and then fly to WDW ?
Must first find out what time our visit to DC will work with daughter's schedule -
been there before when they were at work and we did many sights our self
during the day including the yearly visit to Ikea (Hubby dislikes that trip) and we went places in the evening, dinners, guests over and
visited some of their friends. I also have 2 nephews who live there and that is a must also. One in the District and one in Alexandria.
I do love being in DC there is so much to do.

The Spain trip will be at the Royal Gardens at Sunset Beach Club.

Yes, Disney Paris will be a day trip. Both of my children have been there before when living in France during college. They attended a wedding in Paris a few summers ago and visited Disney then also.

Is your December 2014 Disney trip to Disneyland ?

I have never been to Disneyland. Must put it on the Bucket List !

FYI: needing points ?
Did you know that you can buy 25 points from Disney each calendar year
at $15 per point ?

Also, if you post on the boards there are Members who will transfer points
(usually $10-$12 per point - check and find out I believe the points transferred are according to the owners 11 and 7 month windows - not yours). We have done that. I feel it is safer then renting from someone I do not know - but many do it and it all works !

Take care.

I am renting points from someone for 4 nights at GCV and she's been fantastic. I didn't want to risk waiting until the 7 month mark. Since we are arriving a day earlier, I'm going to attempt to book a 1 br on 1/16 for 8/16. I hope it works out. if it doesn't, I'm just going to use points for a standard room at either the DLH or GCH.

I found someone who I may rent through but like you, renting makes me very nervous. David is another good option as is The Timeshare Store. GCV points generally rent for more anyways. I may rent mine to help cover the cost of renting. I think THV/SSR points run between $10-11.

I'm not giving up hope for a GCV add on but even then, it'd have to be a BIG one. I am not well versed with renting or transferring so I've definitely got my work cut out for me. Oh no, more research!

You'll get the BWV for NYE at 11 months. Did you buy resale or direct?

I have never been to DC but DH loves it. He says the same thing: there is so much to do. His aunt lives in Alexandria. When Gabby was in 5th grade she went on a school trip so my hubby and his dad went to. While Gabby toured with her school, they stayed with his aunt and toured together. He'd been before and loves it. One day I'll get there.

I really need to research this rent/transfer thing. Do you have someone you can suggest renting from? I'm all about references.

Our trip will be to Disneyland. I can't believe its going to take us this long to get to Carsland but thats what its looking like.

Good plan but I think you'll be good if you call right at opening on the 7 month mark. I believe online can book an hour earlier even. Good luck lady, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Hey girl! Glad life is calming down. Good to see you back. Riley seems to be doing a little better. He has his 1 week follow up Thursday. I'm hoping she gives him the diuretic as he's still retaining a ton of fluid.

I bought direct. Which is not for everyone, and maybe not even for most. We have a variety of reasons for doing so but honestly for us, with where we live, the restrictions on the resale was a big deal. Is it the best way to use points, no. But I want the option. And I wanted fully loaded, dues free, in my account immediately, points, resale can take time and it seems Disney is exercising ROFR more than ever. We have 2 smaller contracts in equal size, which is perfect for us. I would never have been able to find that amount, for BWV, resale. There are good contracts out there, more so at some resorts than others but everything I kept seeing was stripped down and more points than I wanted. At this point I think we have enough to get us by. The NYE trip will eat up a ton of points. We will probably always be in a borrowing situation and a little point shy but I'd rather buy a couple of one time use points as I need them then have another contract and pay more dues.

I considered renting out points but...decided to go to Aulani instead.

There's never enough vacation time
I'm always thinking about it
I can't imagine being in it alone

And I wanted fully loaded, dues free, in my account immediately, points, resale can take time and it seems Disney is exercising ROFR more than ever. We have 2 smaller contracts in equal size, which is perfect for us. I would never have been able to find that amount, for BWV, resale. There are good contracts out there, more so at some resorts than others but everything I kept seeing was stripped down and more points than I wanted. At this point I think we have enough to get us by. The NYE trip will eat up a ton of points. We will probably always be in a borrowing situation and a little point shy but I'd rather buy a couple of one time use points as I need them then have another contract and pay more dues.

I considered renting out points but...decided to go to Aulani instead.

We bought direct too. I don't love the limitations or possible limitations on resale either though if the GCV price were right, I'd hop on it. I like fully loaded and available immediately as well. I just saw a great GCV resale for 160 I think which would be perfect but sad for me, I don't have an extra $16,000 laying around.

I'm happy for you! You get to make your New Years reservation in just a couple of weeks.




I'm going to Club 33 for my birthday!!!



A sweet friend made us a reservation for the day after my birthday! It'll be them and my friend Sadee and myself. Lunch! Can't wait. It's a bucket lister for me.
