We're down to Alison (and Fran), Bobbi and me (DH and DS). Ed (SunDial) will probably come up on the Friday night. He lives in FL as well.

That's 7 in the pontoon and 7 for dinner. Are you free for the pontoon? It has a capacity of 10; and I'd like to be able to get a few more to reduce the cost per person.

How much would it be per person if we had 9? What time is it? We'd have to wait til Monday to see if we can get the time off work but there is DVC availability do maybe!! Where for dinner?

The premium pontoon is about $350. So for 9 people, we'd be up for about $39 per person plus tips for the driver. There will be water, soda and bagged snacks on board.

I think we need to be at the boat dock by 8 pm?? It is a MNSSHP night; so we'll get to see Hallowishes at 9.

Dinner on the Saturday night will be at Alison's place at the Beach Club Villa. We'll be cooking and eating in.

Where would you stay?

I could maybe wait list another resort but Matt needs to get the time off first.

Our DVC use year is oct and we only have 17 points in 2014 (2013 is gone and most of2014 due to Hawaii and california) so may as well use em

So sad to hear about your friend

The rest... yeah I figure that's what being a landlord is... a lot of BS. It's got to be a hard job and I could never do it. However, we've rented for 5 years and they must LOVE us because the only time they see/hear from us is when we are paying rent. We are getting out of here though because the other tenants are going downhill FAST!!!

So nice you put in a ramp! You 2 are stellar landlords!


Where are you staying at WDW?
We won't rent to just "anybody". You have to qualify financially to live in our buildings. We don't discriminate, but often the tenants that can afford the rents, turn out to be better tenants. It's not too difficult a job unless you do a lousy job at it. We fix things quickly, and try not to let anything go for a long time if we can help it. By fixing up all these units with nice granite countertops, and tile floors and such, we attract a better breed of tenant who hopefully treat it with respect.

We're staying at VWL for the first three nights, and the last five at BCV. We bought at both of those back in 2011 and still have not yet had the opportunity to stay there, so I'm looking forward to trying them. I've stayed in the hotel, but not Villas. Those are the last two Villas I have not stayed at at WDW. Sometime, I'd like to go back to OKW. We did one night there a couple years ago and the Villa was spacious and wonderful!

That's how our place to be put they put up gates and it seems to keep the riff raff in rather than out. Sorry if I sound like a snob but we never had humans barking at my dog to anger him or leaving food debris out before.


Interested to see what you think. We've stayed at all DVC at WDW and at veto. Adding ails I and gcv this year... So will just need Hilton head and, eventually, grand Floridian. Home is BWV do might wait list that. We are staying there a night in sept to see friends...

So would you have to "borrow" those 17 points? If you want I could rent some points. I have banked all my 2012 points and have most of my 2013 points still available. I need to get on a rental plan, or spend a lot of time out at VGC or I'll be in a lose them situation.
