    Yay. I'm all signed up. What a great idea to have it at a Grand Villa! I'm DVC at BLT but I've never seen a Grand Villa.
    I'm excited that this coincides with my stay, not only at WDW, but at AKV.
    Looking forward to meeting everyone!

    We are arriving on the 3rd, and probably won't be getting to WDW till around 9. We would so like to be there but don't want to take anyone else's place just in case our flight is delayed :sad2:

    but, if you don't get a full house by then, please let us know. We will have a rental car and could drive on over (we'll be staying at BCV). We'd love to join in on the meet!

    thanks - Lois

    This is a really creative idea. Being a DVC member with only 50 points, I will probably never have the opportunity to visit a Grand Villa. I will miss your meet by about 25 days, but hope it is an amazing success! Good luck!

    I wonder if, the next time you stay DVC, you could ask at the front desk if one was available to just peek in? Couldn't hurt to ask, right? Maybe some pixiedust: will come your way!
