    I’m excited that my next Disney vacation starts on Saturday, December 1. :cool1:

    Due to various reasons, our last visit was way back in March and we ended up cancelling our planned May and October trips. Wow, March seems like so long ago!

    We’ll be there for 14 nights – 8 nights at BLT in a Magic Kingdom view 1-BR, followed by 6 nights at SSR in a studio (yes, slumming it the second week)

    We have dinner ADRs for Be Our Guest, California Grill (twice), Citricos (twice), Jiko, Artist Point, Yachtsman Steakhouse, Sanaa, and The Wave. We also have breakfast ADRs at Kona Café, Kouzzina, The Wave, and Olivia’s. All of these are our typical hangouts - except Be Our Guest.

    Hey, dining out is a big part of our vacation plans, along with just relaxing, people watching, and wandering around the parks and resorts (admiring the Christmas decorations).

    We may actually go on some rides. We’re looking forward to the New Fantasyland, as well as the new Test Track at Epcot.

    We’ll be going to the Annual Meeting on Dec 13, as well as the Merry Member Mixer on both Dec 4 and 11.

    You won’t see any trip report from me, as I’ll just be chilling at WDW!

    :thumbsup2

    Enjoy your trip! For sure we're going on TSMM since I got an e-mail yesterday telling me to try the new FP system. Got a fast pass for it!

    Enjoy your trip!! I'm glad I saw your post since I kind of browse the boards looking for your fabulous pictures when I think it's about time for one of your trips! Was hoping everything was ok when I didn't see the usual posts. Hope you have great weather and this trip makes up for lost time!! :goodvibes

    Well, we are checking out this morning and flying home this afternoon. It's hard to believe our 14 nights have gone by so fast.

    I enjoyed seeing the new Fantasyland and dining at Be Our Guest. We attended two Merry Mixers and the Annual Meeting.

    We'll be coming back to WDW in 2 months and 15 days - at BCV.

    I must say, it was a relaxing trip, and I feel rejuvenated.

    Well, Mike, we had to survive from March to December as well, but that was nothing compared to our next big break from WDW! When we returned last week from WDW, we bid it a tearful farewell for more than a year!!!! I'm not certain how I'll fare with no WDW trip for a year, but that's what it's going to be. We blew all our points for Aulani, and our vacation time for another week on the Big Island, so we are "pointed" out. We aren't heavy hitter point owners like DVC Mike!;)

    I couldn't be away for over a year. For my wife and I, WDW has become a home away from home.

    You can always rent points and go back sooner, if you can't wait :goodvibes
