I've always wanted to rent points but have been too nervous as well. I love David's! I think we're going to try it this time. Can't wait to see what you've decided!

Yay for a Maddie PTR! I love love love the idea of an ADR game! Can't wait to see all the cute outfits you have planned for Maddie. I think I only have about $300 worth of favorited merchandise on Disney.com so you have me beat there! I am hoping to start a PTR very soon for our Jan-Feb 2014 trip!

I'm a reality TV junkie too, but I have no idea what you're talking about.

I'm somewhere between Yay!! An ADR Game and I really don't care, just tell us already.

But I'm picking Chef Mickey for the last meal.

You use spreadsheets to plan your trips???

What kind of a freak are you???

Can't wait to see where you end up staying! Personally I hope it's the Beach Club- it looks amazing!

P.S. Maddie's spring vs. summer break options, of course, were perfectly reasonable
Glad you're here!

I think the ADR game should add some fun. PTRs can get boring.

I'll reveal the resort very soon

Maddie is a reasonable kid. Happy Birthday to you tomorrow!

So glad that you're here Queen! I am equally glad to have found another listmaker/spreadsheet lover. I have to admit, that Bryan is usually the spreadsheet guy but now I'm a firm believer. Love them.

Yay! I'll reveal our resort choice very soon, and I think the ADR game will be lots of fun.

So glad you're here! Thanks for de-lurking!

The ADR game should be fun, I have to give Marissa (marDgreen) all the credit. She did it on her PTR and it was lots of fun.

Are you going to give us clues for you ADR game? You could even do a guess the resort game!
I'll reveal soon!

I think I will give clues. I was thinking that everyone could make initial guesses at all of them when we start, then as I break down the days I'll give clues, and everyone can revise their guesses as needed. The first person to guess them all will win. That might not be fun for anyone who joins in late though. What do you think?

Thanks for joining in! and Welcome!

Oh I was so mad when Kristen took the rap for Josie. I never like Josie, and was already mad that she'd lasted longer than my beloved CJ. I hope that Kristen comes back from Last Chance Kitchen (which I don't watch because I want to be surprised) and kicks all their butts!

Thanks for joining in Karen! I can't wait to share them-this is going to be a great trip.

I will go ahead and tell you that I stink at ADR games, but I'm going to give it a try anyway. I may just put down character meals for every one.

Maybe I should look into renting points...hmmm...Brandon will be so pleased with you.
Thanks for joining in! I'll see if I can arrange for some Maddie photo shoots for you between now and the trip.

Every character meal? Not a bad guess. Let me know if you have any ideas how we should play.

Oooohhh Brandon is going to love me! I was shocked to see how affordable it was though.

Welcome! Thanks for reading and joining in the PTR!

Oh you are going to have the BEST TIME EVER!!!! I can't wait to hear all about your kids' first trip. If you have any questions, please ask. I'm sure that if I can't answer someone can. DISsers were so helpful to me before we took Maddie for the first time.

You know me girl. I just added a 17th last night (it's a double book though-I'm gonna get back down to 16)

Dear God, I just popped over to that DVC renting points website and Im pretty sure Im going to have to use that for my next trip! Hands down!! Like, 1500 for Bay Lake Tower, YES PLEASE! Looks like my next trip with Mom will actually be at a deluxe! I like how easy the website is to use, THANK YOU for posting about it!

Isn't incredibly easy to use? I was SHOCKED at how affordable it could be.

Ah!! Thats so not enough information for now! Lawl, you best be doing lots of real life updates to keep us all update on life and the excited plans for Disney. Eeek, this is awesome, Im excited to read more!!
I will, I promise! I'm going to reveal the resort very soon.

I checked out Davids Disney point rentals too and couldn't believe that we may be able to stay deluxe in a studio as well. Funny enough Beach Club (my dream resort) is on my list too. Wonder if we will be there the same time? We were thinking we would need to do CBR b/c of price. Let us know how renting points goes. I'm nervous as well, but I can't beat the price. I can't wait to read your report
Thanks for joining in!!

So glad to have found another kindred spirit! IF we end up going the points rental route, I'll definitely share.(don't want to give too much away! sounds like a lot of people have done it or are planning to try though-so I'm sure someone around here could help)

They both sound divine don't they? The Poly would be my dream resort, but you just can't beat the walk to Epcot or MK.

Thanks for joining in!

So glad that you're here Kathy! I know!! Could you just imagine if we were there at the same time? Mark and Maddie's funny hat/tiara pics would have been legendary!

Yay! So glad you're here! and an excellent guess!

I'm thinking that everyone could guess all at once, and then can ammend their guesses as I give daily clues. The first to have them all is the winner. What do you think?

Yes she was! And I'm so glad Josie finally went home.

Joining in for your PTR! I've enjoyed the last couple trip reports, so this is sure to be fun! I took my DS6 last Feb for our 1st trip and we are now hooked! But of course we don't do the princess related stuff, so it's fun seeing the pink, sparkly side of Disney with Maddie.
February 2012 - POFQ ; October 2013 - CBR
