    Welcome to all the new groupies. If you also want to be on the birthday or anniversary list, pm me!!


    We join the ones that are jealous we cannot be with the December groupies, but it looks like next years groupie meet is already shaping up. Kati and I are counting the days until we make our December 2013 reservation. Looking forward to December 2013, but since I am not one to wish time away, I will enjoy the year until it gets here. Plus I guess two cruises will help pass the time.


    Well, I can now report that the car search is over. We were going to look a little more, but we fell in love with and purchased the 2012 Toyota Camry SE Limited Edition. I will tell you we are calling the color ' Mickey Pants Red'!!!! Here she is!

    Can someone point me to a link where I can see the floor plans for each floor of the Villas? I'd like to see where each villa is located, with numbers.

    D the corner villas overlooking the pool have more windows than the typical villa? Are these one-bedrooms with a second lock off option?

    Thanks!

    You have gotten some wonderful tips from the VWL experts, and I'll toss in one more that I don't know that anyone has mentioned. Something you might enjoy with your DS is the Hidden Mickey hunt at the Lodge and VWL. Go to Guest Services and ask for the Hidden Mickey clue sheet and then spend time tracking them down. It's a lot of fun, but they are not always easy to spot!

    Have a wonderful trip! :)

    Hello everyone and Happy Thanksgiving from London :goodvibes

    So I am getting way ahead of myself here but we have just booked our flights for December 2013 and wanted to say at the VWL for pretty much our whole vacation

    It's our home resort but as a fairly new DVC Member we have only stayed at the Villas once before and that was only for one night (stayed at the Lodge previously)

    We are so excited at the prospect of seeing all of the holiday decorations and I know this is a popular time to stay at the Villas, but what are my chances of securing 11 nights in a studio if I book right on my 11 month window?

    I wasn't sure if I would end up only getting a small selection of my chosen dates (3rd - 14th December) as we didn't really want to switch resorts

    Thanks everyone for this wonderful thread :cloud9:

    It's going to be a long countdown so this thread will help me get through :thumbsup2

    Welcome Linda, to the happiest thread on the Dis.:goodvibes

    First, as someone who has booked just about every Dec for the past 12 years, I would say your chances are excellent!
    What a wonderful long vacation you will have at our beloved Lodge.

    Visit us when you can. We love to get excited with our fellow VWL Groupies future vacations.:thumbsup2

    Welcome to the groupies gmi3804 & Linda67!!! :welcome:

    Linda I agree with Muushka. I think your chance are very good. Just be sure to call exactly at 9:00 a.m. on your 11 mo. window or better yet you can do it online at 8:00 a.m. on your 11 mo. window. Then continue to add on days until you reach 11 nights. 11 nights sounds like heaven! :cloud9:


    Happy Thanksgiving Groupies!

    Is that how you have to do it? I have been an owner for a couple of years now, but have actually NEVER booked at the 11 month window!! I have to book each day one by one? I'm looking to book next December at almost the exact same time as Linda (Dec 4-8..I think. Might need more...)

    You can book the first 7 nights and then call back to add the other days.
