    138 for us. I think saying 'about 4 months' makes it sound sooner! lol

    So we were supposed to stay at an offsite hotel for the three days before our timeshare stay starts. After talking to friends of ours that are going the same time, we decided to stay at Saratoga Springs instead. Anyone ever stay there? Eat there? Would love to hear all about your favorite parts about it. This will be our first time eating and staying on Disney property for Thanksgiving, so it makes it more exciting for us! We are looking forward to it! Thanks!

    My cousin and her husband are DVC owners and that is their home resort. They LOVE it. I know they have mentioned really enjoying the pool there. We've never been there but since they are meeting us in November we plan on checking it out :)

    When I was there they rang up 14-16 dollars but ask them to apply the coupon and it makes them 11-13 dollars

    125 days!! I have a few trips to go on before I get to this one (including a trip to Tokyo Disney) but this is a big family trip for us - 14 of us are going. Can't wait to see my nieces faces when they see WDW all decked out for the holidays! We've already purchased or MVMCP tickets and I'm hoping all of the resorts will be decorated while we are there too.

    Oh wow you'll have to post pictures from Tokyo Disney! I've heard fantastic things about that park, especially the Seas.

    Absolutely! I actually have started a blog which is right now basically a pre-trip report but I will be updating it while I'm in Japan and when I return. I'll be there for about 3 weeks with one full week at Tokyo Disney.
