After reading thru all the forums this past week I finally decided to jump in...I love WL and on one trip with two of my nephews we sat and watched the villas being built. ( years earlier I had toured OKW and had dreamed of owning a DVC membership) my dh and older nephew where at BB.....the little one was appx 3 yrs old, and it was nap time for him. He liked to be told stories so I told him about how we were going to buy a home right here at WDW and when he was older and a daddy he could bring his little boy to VWL and let him meet Mickey. The dream of ownership became real and when we visit he walks in just like he owns all of WL. He knows all about the points and loves to help plan our trips. I have made so many trips thru the years I'm not sure of the #....have stayed in almost all of WDW Resorts, for years Poly was my favorite until WL was built. When I arrive and walk thru the front doors I feel like I'm HOME. (Have also stayed at all other DVC resorts at WDW but only the WL feels like home) We'll be going home in Sept. Sorry this is so long.....(my first post).....

MAGICinMYHEART, Welcome!

I'll be at the WL in Sept. as well. Sept. 20-27th. What week will you be there? I'd love to try the villas sometime. They look great. Everyone here loves the WL. I just can't imagine staying anywhere else.

I feel a little guilty trying another resort! We'll be staying at AKL in Dec. just to experience a different theme and possibly do Sunrise Safari, but I feel bad not staying at WL! Just like others have said, "It feels like your home when you walk into the lobby of WL! I hope AKL gives us that same feeling!

WE'RE BACK!!!!

Boy I hate coming back to reality, but I did miss all my DIS buddies. I got to meet a few while in WDW.

Kimmar, sorry to hear about your trip, let me unpack and I'll send the remaining pixie dust right on over.

FloridaCat, I blew my horn as I went through Deltona, hope you heard it!:D

Welcome back
Thanks for the TOOT. Hope the storms did not mess up to much fun for you. More the same this coming week. Looking forward the RATPACK report.

Heading up to my DD in Wilmingron next weekend. How is construction on I-95 in GA?

Construction was not an issue except for just before Jacksonville on the Daytona side. All other areas was clear sailing.

Would rather be a "Welcomed Guest" than an "Unwelcomed" one!
As a youngster, aspired to be Hayley Mills or Tommy Kirk's SO, but since I can't do that, I will just be a Pollyanna

Hey RatPack!

Welcome back. Hope you and yours had much fun! I know a bunch of us were thinking about you while you were gone.

Swampkatz, I also tooted the horn as we went through Tega Cay.

And yes I noticed my tag. Thanks folks for thinking of us while we were gone. The lodge was as great as ever. Had room 6060 and could see the fireworks over the castle at night and also saw the otters playing in the morning. I will try to get trip reports done soon. Right now I am just getting back into the swing of normal life. Wait a minute, Disney is normal life, so this must be the abnormal life.
