Welcome Brett. Officially, those dues may be mailed to me and may be submitted in dole whips, bacon, beer, or cake. My condolences on you being a Steelers fan, but we have a some other curmudgeon Steeler fans on here as well. As far as you not liking soccer, yeah, I can't get that. That Disney Visa Card pays for the MNSSHP tickets each year. Which DVC resort do you own at? We own at SSR, BLT, BWV. We have a whole sub forum here with DVC talk, princess pictures (lots of great shots with Jasmine ), and a group on FB.

Been drinking Landshark lately, although winter is usually Kilians' Irish Red. I may have to go with Guiness if I stay here. Paul and I are just working on the dates. And, given my propensity to hard work, the trailer is having a hard time removing itself from the blocks. And yes, I'll collect that drink one day. I'll cheer on any SEC team (except when they plan a KY team) even though I am Catholic.

I think we have a 3 day boot camp training every time they come back from there. Of course the wife tells me for the 3 days that it is my fault.
We tried that stuff when they were younger. My parents and the Inlaws that did that stuff as well. Just survive.

Yeah, there are the occasional club matches with no fans in the stands that are less than desired. But, I thought the recent World Cup was fairly exciting. I still want to find some of those noisemakers and bring them to sideline for my dds games.

Besides, It’s fun to watch others try to get points from our quotes and have Mark shoot them down.

Of course having been raised watching the Dolphins and having followed the Panthers since their inception, I’ve not had much to cheer about from a gridiron perspective for quite some time.

It is an in-state thing. And it really is pointless to pick on you when you're not around to read it.

Let me ask you this. How many IU basketball fans even know that there is a football team that plays in Bloomington?
Besides me?! For the record I do root for Thomas well. I usually go o at least two home games. I grew up near ND so my loyalty is closer to them.

Dues are in the mail! Not sure how the Dole Whips are going to hold up with holiday mails though!

It's easy enought to deal with the Steelers haters...the 6 Lombardi trophies make it easier.
Although losing tot eh Ravens or Browns is the equivalent of having to swallow broken glass.

We own at BLT and SSR. We bought in at BLT and added on at SSR. I'm sure we'll be buying more at some point. The Disney points have paid for our DDP twice now. I javen't figured out if it's a good deal or if my wife is just spending too much money to earn that many points

I've been working on my year end performance appraisal for work. I am hoping that when I add this to my 2012 accomplishments, my management takes me seriously. After all, I'm getting tired of them always saying that I work part time at Disney World as Grumpy.

They are different resorts. We've stayed at BLT the last two times. That walk to MK is great. SSR has that boat access to DTD. We don't do DDP anymore. I added it up and the difference was negligible. It just wasn't worth the hassle to keep up with credits anymore.

We LOVED the short walk to MK.
As soon as our oldest hits 10, we'll drop the DDP and either take gift cards or get TIW.

After being so close to MK, the next trip will be tough to be away from it. We want to try all the different resorts though.
Kidani was awesome and we had the Savanah view. The DW and I appreciated it MUCH more than our girls.

Yeah, we did the AKV Kidani Savannah view as well. It was really cool. Do you all do 1 BRs or studios? The 1 BR at BLT and AKV Kidani have a second bathroom. Have you considered staying at Boardwalk or Beach Club? A short walk to Epcot and boat ride to DHS. The Boardwalk is really cool at night.

I think it would awesome to stay at a different resort each trip, but I'm sure it's going to hard after staying at BLT next trip, that short walk to MK is a huge benefit
