Hi everyone!!! Can I tag along in the group? :-D

I'll be at the villas Oct 5th-8th. I was hoping to find some secret insider info here since I am traveling with a friend and her kids and I want to impress ;-)

Besides the geyser, what other fun (and free if possible) things should I look out for? I'm guessing any chance at flag family will be gone since we're only staying 3 days...but I'll still check of course!!! Lol :-)

Thanks guys!!! :-)

Hoping you pass ROFR with flying colors! I'm assuming (if this was a Dec use year) that this is the contract I was looking at a few days ago. We are NOT in a position to add more, but I was SOOOO tempted by this one.

My DH thanks you!

We are thrilled to be able to spend our 5th Wedding Anniversary ( AND very first trip alone since we had our twins) at The Lodge!!


Yay!! Congratulations!! You are going to love it, it's so romantic and such an amazing resort.

Take a walk along the beach at night, too, where you can catch EWP and parts of Wishes. There is a nature trail leading out behind the bike rental building. You absolutely must dine at Artist Point, and be sure to ask for a window table and tell them it's your anniversary. You're simply going to love it!

Did you get your Artist Point ADR?

WELCOME
Murron and MrsH42608!

I'm just a wee bit envious of those of you with double digit countdowns. I'm really going to miss our May trip this year. 191 for us
We don't even have a trip planned, so if I am guesstimating - our trip is about 617 days away

But, of course, you'd miss the beautiful lobby!
And you DEFINITELY don't want to miss that lobby!!

Welcome to the groupies hoffmann2828!!!!
Something fun(and free)to do, the Lodge tour. It starts around 10, lasts about 45 mins. and is really info. filled. The Electrical Water Pageant runs every night around 9:30. Just go to the beach area to see. Every night they play a free movie outside. All these years, we have never taken adv. of this, maybe someday. Pool games by the main pool always look fun. This scratches the surface. As for being FF, be really flexible with schedule and it may happen.

I had to comment! We are spending our 39th wedding anniversary there and we are also leaving our 25 year old twins home

Welcome!! You may absolutely tag along with the friendliest group on the DIS! In addition to the excellent info JT mentioned, don't forget to grab a copy of the Hidden Mickeys hints from the check-in desk. Further, before the movie gets going, a CM gets a fire going and has items needed for making/cooking sumores right there on the beach. There is a nature trail that leads off behind the bike rental shop and then hooks up to the main walking path connected WL to FW. I'm sure there are others, but these should be enough to whet your appetite for awhile.

Aww shucks guys! Thanks again for all of the warm welcomes. We are so thrilled to be staying at the lodge again. Our kids loved staying at the main lodge years ago and now our grandsons will be seeing the villas for the very first time. Can't wait!

We have found that AP appears to be one of the easiest, if not THE easiest, signature restaurants to book. Though it's a topnotch place to eat, we figure many folks don't want to bother making the trip over to the Lodge just to eat. That's fine by us. Enjoy AP!

Wow, lots of new visitors and parents of twins! Welcome to our Groupie thread.

Grab yourself a Moosie Siggy. He loves to be seen everywhere around the Dis!

Thanks!!! Just about 33 days and we'll be there. We've not stayed at Wilderness for a few years now so we can't wait. I just love everything about it and wished we had bought some DVC points there. Just sitting on the beach with a big glass of wine and watching the water pageant again will make me very happy!
