    I know what you mean, Donald Quackers. I have 10 more sleeps to WDW and I'm already having trouble falling asleep. :-)

    Have a magical trip. pixiedust: I'll be down this weekend for 2 weeks, not sure when I can squeeze in the parks but I am sure I'll find the time.

    I've found since going DVC that I've valued my time at the resort even more. The games that the cast members play at the pool, including the dominance of my sister and I in the Disney Trivia contest (even though there is usually one question that even has us scratching our heads).

    This will be my first stay at Saratoga Springs. I want to stay at BCV next time I'm down on points.

    I'd love to do a DVC member cruise, but they're always during blackout times...If they have another one in January, I may just go.

    We are going down so I can run in the Royal Family 5k.

    We are going for 5 days, but I'm not sure that we'll go to the parks more than a few days. A few friends are coming with us and we're staying at OKW. It will be our first time in 2br.

    Looking forward to some relaxing this trip. I think we're going to try to check out Splitsville. Should be a different trip for us.

    We have been enjoying the resorts as well. We go so often that we don't have to rush and squeeze in all the parks each visit.

    Although now that we are moving down there we are little sad that we won't be staying in the resorts anymore since we are so close. But we are happy we can go whenever we want. Just leaves the points for other travel options with RCI.

    I've lived in my home for 29 years! Pretty much raised my kids there--had plenty of time to enjoy it :) And I'll enjoy it when I can't travel anymore! Actually, I'll be home now until the end of March when we sail to Mexico from San Francisco on the Grand Princess. I'm going to miss that tiny catamaran cabin though ;)

    You can use your points to visit the original Magic Kingdom in Anaheim!

    The weather in St. Maarten was picture perfect. We were on a 50-some foot catamaran with 6 other guests and 3 crew members (one was a trainee). We would sail for an hour or 2 after breakfast, then have time to swim/snorkel, and sail again for a while after lunch. Each night we'd moor in a protected cove. We basically circumnavigated St. Maarten but also sailed to St. Barts one day. We had dinner off the boat 2 nights--one in Maragot, the other in Simpson's Bay. John and I stayed at Mary's Boon (right by the runway) our first and last nights. We spent one afternoon at Maho Beach watching the planes land and take-off. Amazing! It was a wonderful vacation--once I get home and reorganized I'll try putting some pics in photo bucket and share a few. I want to go again :)

    We really do need to go back. Our one and ony visit was over New Years, it rained the entire time and was so crowded you could barely move. I don't know what we were thinking when we picked that date. So the visit was far from memorable.

    Sounds like a great trip and a wonderful way to see the island other than land based. Who did you book the trip with? this type of vacation is on our bucket list.

    I was debating doing that exact thing next year. I'm hoping to attend the San Diego Comic Con and then drive up to Anaheim and spend about 3 days at Disneyland! I really want to see World of Color and Cars Land.

    Wow that sounds like a great trip. I think St Maarten is so pretty.
    The other island I thought was really pretty to is Tortola....a lot of poor areas but very pretty.

    I havent been to Disneyland since the mid 70's......hmmmm have to go back one of these days....

    We sailed with Tradewinds. We traded our Anaheim property for the sailing catamaran thru RCI. You still pay a mandatory all-inclusive fee. I also saw another company on RCI called Festiva--Angie

    Oh I'm sure it has. One of these days I will make it back there. My boss, her son is doing a college intern out there now. Loves it. They went to spend a few days there and had a blast at Disney.... So I most likely will one of these days.
