    Just thirty days until check in. Cannot wait!

    I have fond memories of being a child riding the monorail through the Contemporary thinking how much I'd love to stay there. My grandparents always had us stay off property. Time to make this dream come true. I'm staying at Bay Lake Tower for the very first time and it's only one month away!

    Anyone else this close to visiting WDW?

    Anyone else have a special Disney memory or Disney wish that that they made come true?

    I'm all ears!

    I have the same memory of riding through the Contemporary! We rode with the engineer and I remember looking up as we rode through. We have 9 days until SSR/BCV, 59 days until OKW, and 252 days until AKV. That darn PAP!

    We can't wait. Only downfall is we are only doing a studio. Usually we get a 1 br but are savings points for our BLT trip in nov

    We used to own SSR but sold it for BLT. We love SSR. Great relaxing resort. Dw and I keep saying we have to go back

    We're down to 36 days till we check in for one night at BCV for some swimming then 7 nights at Kidani. We're really chomping at the bit for this vacation. You'd think we weren't just there in November :laughing:

    As a kid in the 70s, I had a friend who's family reserved rooms yearly and they invited me once, we stayed at the Contemporary! Gosh what a thrill it was, one of my fondest memories! The following year I went with them again and we stayed at the Polynesian, fabulous! When we went to Disney as a family, living in FL we would head off at the crack of dawn, get there at park opening and return home at night! Mind you there was no Epcot, no AK, not DHS!

    When Epcot came, we would stay the night, but like you, it was always on the strip, never on-site! Don't get me wrong, I loved going but I secretly pined for the Contemporary or the Polynesian!

    I have many, I mean 40 years worth, now some with my own kids! But I have to say, my first stay as a DVC owner, staying on-site, knowing that I could come back here for 40 years, blows me away! Why buy DVC living in Florida, well those early Contemporary/Polynesian stays made one thing clear to me, nothing compares to staying on-site! 12 years of DVC ownership has only made me love it more!

    Have fun at BLT, savor every minute! pixiedust::mickeyjum
