Welcome Home Wednesday

I've been a DVC member since 2007 but have never attended a WHW. Is it something I should do with DH and DDs 9 and 4, or should I keep passing? Is this something the kids will enjoy, or are we going to feel that we're missing valuable park/pool time?

With kids I would skip it. Something to do if you don't have anything else going on and want to kill time.

We go each year. My dds are now 11 & 9. It is a cheesy little thing, but we all like it. One year, my oldest answered an audience question and won a pin, DW won a gift card (name drawn) which she used for free tshirt, and I got to participate in the new show format last time we went. I lost, but still won a pin. I liked the old trivia format better. Still, we go each time for our "free" hats, cracker jack, and lemonade.

This year, our plan is for a resort day, clean up for WHW, head into DTD for some shopping, and a dinner ADR at Fulton's Crab House. Last year, we did it to break up our Epcot day. With 8:00 AM ADR & EMH to 11:00 PM, it was a nice one hour break during the heat of the day.

I'd say if you're staying at BCV or BWV, it's worth it to try at least once, and then walk over to Epcot afterwards. Currently it's from 2-3PM on Wednesdays. We just went last Wed. This is our 3rd Welcome Home Wednesday with the kids, they look forward to the lemonade, cracker jack/pretzels/or Smartfood. (They also had apples and bananas available.) We enjoyed getting the new design for the hats this time. We've never won anything yet...but don't have anyone in the family that 'wants' to compete in the games. We stayed at BCV and did Stormalong Bay in the AM, WHW from 2-3, then went to Epcot for the late afternoon/evening.

I like getting the hats, saying hi to John from Owner's Locker, and getting the snacks, and lemonade. We were at HS, and just took the boat over. I volunteered for one of the games. We like the new format.

The theme is a family reunion cookout...but no one brought the hot dogs. You get a snack like cracker jacks, a piece of fruit if you want it & lemonade or water.

I went today. I told my friends that if you enjoy watching or participating in shows like "beat the clock" and having a few laughs and getting a DVC baseball cap ( not guaranteed, but likely) come with me. 2 pals came with me, and surprisingly to me, I and one friend did compete & we enjoyed the games we played, & we each got 2 pins as prizes.

They do have games for kids, the kids today seemed to enjoy themselves, and certain little ones really stole the show.

There are drawing for prizes. Today there were some $50 gift certificates, one was for Sammy Duvall water sports...something from the Richard Petty experience, and an Owners Locker membership for a year.

It was fun...

Went today also, enjoyed the format. Everyone should go at least once.

No RSVP, so to say, required? Just show up at 2 with member card?

Correct and to modify my post from above, the event is very kid friendly now.

I looking into checking this out. I think it sounds like it could be a lot of fun.

Solo trips are fab! I attended a WHW alone during my solo trip and had a great time. Enjoy your trip

We are going down in 2 weeks on a DVC rental while we await our resale purchase to go through. Are we allowed to attend as DVC members being in a rental unit?
