    Thanks to all of you for the great info on this thread!

    We are staying at AKV (renting points) for the second year in a row. I do have some questions for the experts here:

    1. Are there lifejackets available at the pool for small children?
    2. Do you know if coconut milk is available in the resort store?

    Thank you! We can't wait to go. I think this might be the trip that convinces me to buy in! :)

    Yes friend, I think that is an excellent idea. And you can immediately use your points after buying. :)

    Congrats on your stay!! As for the lifejackets, I'd say yes, but how small are we talking about? Toddler and up, yes, I think so, younger, not sure!!

    As for the coconut milk, I haven't seen it, but there is a publix right around the corner from the lodge, if you have a car, I'm sure you can go get some. If you don't have a car, there are 2 grocery services you can use, they will deliver groceries to the resort. garden grocer and wegoshop, you can find info here regarding both, just use the searchbox!!

    :)




    WHOOPSIE - sorry Pam, I guess we were answering at the same time!!

    Too bad Flat Brandi and Flat David can not taste all the wonderful food and drink their fill there...

    Maybe you can spill a little tequila and food on us by the end so we look like we were eating and drinking...

    :rolleyes1


    Thanks for the video, it just makes me want to be there even more.

    I'm sad today.... The voices of reason have spoken (my DH and BFF). We are postponing our trip until January. :sad:

    I'm just not physically up to it yet, and even if I was, going the week before Christmas is too much for us. I know they are right, but that doesn't mean I have to LIKE it!!!! :(

    Sooooo, our new dates are TBD.

    We made that same tough decision about a month ago, but we're postponing until January too, our Disney dates are Jan 30 - Feb 7, with a couple days at Universal before that. :grouphug:

    Yeah, I'm sorry too, the Jamborini meet sounded like so much fun! She's slowing plugging along. If things go right maybe by the end of the months all her wounds will be closed up. Then she can get the arthritis meds, THAT's when the real improvement will start.

    I would love to meet you too! You can ride my scooter, Fran likes to go to the parks to people watch. She brings a book while I usually go through the single rider line on the crazy rides. With the cortizone shot my podiatrist gave me a few weeks ago, I actually did REALLY good at walking yesterday. I walked (or stood) almost as much as a mild Disney day and didn't have any adverse foot effects. Although my legs were killing me because they don't usually get that much exercise! :rotfl2:

    Sorry, we're "planned out" solid....borrowing from next year for this trip because we're not doing a 2013 trip. Then the plan is to bank the rest of 2013's so we can do a longer trip in a 2 BR in 2014. The plan nets us at 3 pts (2014 pts, which we'll bank) at the end. :)
