    Really? It increased that much? Disney knows their audience.​


    GVC resales are $100 each too. Yeah, I get why some folks buy resale but being that they can change the rules at any time. I am with you, I want fully loaded and security. The headache and worry is never worth spending less to me. ​


    Being able to book the hotels is nice. I forgot ALL about the DLH being fully refurbed in 2011 so I'm really excited. I borrowed a few pics from Google for my friend and it's so neat now. The colors, theme, furnishings, and all of the little touches are amazing. If two of my dearest friends didn't live there, I could see us staying there our entire trip even though we're doing only one day at Disney. I'd love to enjoy it all but it would take me the 3 days.​


    :goodvibes He did didn't he? I'm elated.​



    I'm sorry sweetie, it's so so difficult. :hug: I know we'll make their last days as special as we can. ​

    AK is my favorite in terms of color, theme, and vibe for sure. It's so peaceful and rich at the same time. ​



    :thanks: I am so grateful and excited and can't hardly believe it. To the non Disney fan, I'm sure I sound silly but around these parts, YOU ALL GET IT! :grouphug:


    I will post a full, very detailed report of our day at Disney and Club 33. :goodvibes

    I get the math on resale, I do but what fascinates me is that not one resale person ever factors this into their math. Resale could take a year or longer to find what you want. Finding the right contract, having the offer accepted and then passing ROFR takes at a minimum 12 weeks. Don't pass? Start over. Say you take 1, maybe 2 trips during then that you pay cash for and you stay deluxe cuz that's how you roll, now how much have you really saved??? Buy a stripped contract and even less.

    Basically anyone can make the math work in a way that makes them feel good about how they bought and that's ok with me. :)

    Absolutely!! I'm glad there are both options, resale and direct. Competition is always good. I think the only resort I'd consider buying resale at this point would be the GCV because we visit Disneyland more often than WDW so if we could only use the points there, we'd live. It would have to be the perfect contract though. However I'm still of the camp of trading out of DVC and into RCI or II. I'm looking into anniversary options now. We can't seem to come to a consensus on where to go. :lmao: The irony is funny!​

    Hello, it's been a while. Well other than Facebook Jenny.


    How nice of Michael. You have to love a man that knows what you like.

    :wave: Hey girl! Yes, we've always got FB.

    Actually I'm feeling a little blah tonight which is rare for me. It's SO cold and the sun hasn't shown/shined for about 5 days. Even in the cold, I need to see the sun. I don't think Michael being gone so long is helping. I'm having a little pity party. party: He gets a winter break and even though he's working, 14 days in the Florida sun isn't a bad gig.

    Sorry you asked? :lmao:

    ::yes:: I'm so happy he booked us a night at the DLH. The refurb looks amazing and I'm excited to stay there.

    How are you?​

    I understand the winter blahs. We sometimes have weeks of fog and the lack of sun gets me down. It also doesn't help to have Michael gone I am sure. No I am not sorry I asked.

    I am blah myself. With Scotty having cancer and knowing it yet not going anywhere with it has been really rough. He has his second biopsy is a week from tomorrow and then it will be a couple more weeks. I can't help but feel that I wish they would just get a move on on this and that time is wasting. Now are you sorry you asked?:goodvibes

    I'm so sorry :hug: I'm not sorry I asked. The waiting is so terribly difficult. How is he doing? How are his spirits? Why so long between tests? It's maddening!


    I haven't ever suffered from the winter blues. I think it's the perfect set of circumstances making me feel this way. I've never liked Utah winters but this one is exceptionally hard; cold and grey. Plus truth be told, I'm a little envious which sounds super petty but it is what it is. He gets a break from this and I don't. I'm working too so it's not like he's working and I'm vacationing here, ya know? ;)

    The waiting has been awful. He is frustrated, he is always tired. It is hard on him because he is normally a physical person. He likes to run and ride his bicycle and most days he has no energy. Plus his work is crazy right now, so he isn't off much and that is exhausting. The reason they waited to do the second biopsy is because they wanted his prostate to heal before they did it again. He is not looking forward to it because it is so painful and so is the recovery.

    Everything is my signature, the cruise is after my next WDW trip...I don't have a TR for the cruise since I'm still trying to wrap up the Destination D thing, but I do have a PTR for my WDW trip.

    So true on the first and yeah on the second. :goodvibes

    So true part deux. I live in a sunny city that has suddenly become VERY gloomy. :confused3 So strange. I too need the sun. It was sunny all week after weeks of gloom and it's like you wanted to smile simply for a blue sky. Actually the smile came and then the realization!

    I know I'm a stranger - but I'm so very sorry.

    Thank you Jenny.


    Thank you.

    We had the first beautiful and warm day here in a while today. It did a lot to improve my mood.
