    …You know the feeling; it usually starts building right after you make your reservations. A slow excitement kicks in, a happy anticipation that soon (although, not soon enough) you’ll be back.
    You can’t explain it; logically you know there may be more exotic or beautiful places out there. Heck, some folks think it doesn’t even compare to its name sake but all that doesn’t matter to you. All you can think is soon, so very soon you’ll be there.

    And then it comes, the moment you turn onto Timberland Dr. You smile a quiet smile full of joy that says YES!! Finally, I’m here & in the tiny amount of time it takes to pass through the gates until you finally see her, you are completely, blissfully happy. Is it your imagination or do you think she smiles back at you, a feeling that no matter how long it’s been since you last visited, she is glad to see you, welcomes you home, whispers to you of a week full of good times.
    Yes, you definitely know the feeling, All the previous weeks, months and even years of waiting, all the times real life dropped an anvil on your head, have all been worth it for this feeling.

    Welcome to the Wilderness lodge groupies Forum. Come on in and say hello! We’ve got a moose mom, wilderness Dad and a Granny (yep, he’s a guy), we’ve got a Teapot and an Inkman, a Muushka and Iowan that really loves Disney. A whole host of folks who love the Wilderness lodge. We share pictures, trip reports birthday wishes and stories and when you start to feel like a flat cartoon character from real life dropping all those anvils on ya, we’ve got well wishes to pump you back up.

    Come and sit a spell!!

    Oh, let us know when you’re traveling and your bday. We’ll eat cake with ya too!!

    I couldn't have said it better myself. We'll be there Oct. 31-Nov. 7 and believe me, I'm counting the days! I hate to wish my life(and the summer) away, but I can't wait to be there! :goodvibes

    Pixie Dust List (You know what we mean) :hug:

    For new visitors, we hope that you can see throughout our thread that we have a love for our Lodge.
    But more importantly, we care about each other.
    We have decided that it would be good to keep track of pixie dust requests.
    Not really the fun, fluffy kind, but the more serious.
    If you want to be placed on this post, can you let me know? I don't want to be presumptuous. :flower3:

    My hope is that all pixie dust requests will have a good ending. If you are on this list, please know that you are in our hearts. And please feel free to PM me to give updates for this post.

    Her mom is going through chemo and having a difficult time. But thankfully she is a woman of hope! :hug:

    Our Groupies Vacations List

    Whenever you are ready with a new vacation that you would like added to the list - please just PM me and I'll take care of adding it. IF you post it in the thread itself... it might get missed. I'm just sayin' - I do try to read it all, but sometimes when I'm traveling or away for a bit, it might just get missed. So if you just PM me, that'd be your best bet for getting your special trip included on the list.

    Hey guys, love the intro. Eliza! What a great way to truly describe the Lodge and our love for it.

    I am a bit under the weather, so posting a little later than normal for a workday. This is the only time in my life, all 45 yrs of it that I have missed work 3 straight days. Missed 2 before, twice, but never this much. But today seems the meds are finally kickin in!

    Anywho, dont mean to bore you and bring this thread down, but helps me dream of my happy place, the Lodge:lovestruc

    Ooooo! Brand new, shiny thread! :goodvibes

    Hello Groupies! Hope that you are all doing well and enjoying your summers. :sunny:

    Haven't been here much as we started a new Biggest Loser Challenge -- we've lost almost 200 pounds in just the first two weeks of the challenge!

    stopher, hope you had a good time on your most recent trip. I will be at VGC 6/23/10-6/26/10 -- will come back with a WOC report from the Villas. I have a birthday on 7/11. I also have a WDW trip 2/25/2011-2/28/2011 for the Princess Half-Marathon (don't know the DVC resorts yet) and a Disney Cruise on the Wonder West Coast Repo 4/26/2011-5/1/2011. I'm a lucky moose! :yay:

    Have a great day all!

    Well done Eliza! :worship: Love the intro. Had to read that one to AnniversaryGuy. He was very impressed. I don't think he totally got it but still impressed.

    I'll look for some pics to start us off later. Awaiting 2 new mattresses being delivered within the next 30 min. or so. Today is my last day of work & I need to be back for my last shift at 10:40. Woo hoo summer is here!!! :cool1:

    Later my groupie friends! :goodvibes

    I'm here....with a quick intro.

    After constantly using my mom's AKL points, my husband and I just closed on 175 VWL points. Since we want our first trip home to be at Christmas, we'll be hitting other resorts this year:
    SSR for his 60th birthday (Tgiving week)
    OKW or AKL for Valentines Day--our 20th wedding anniversary
    BWV for my 50th (September)

    But I have my calendar ticklers set up for the day after Christmas this year to book sometime in late November/December 2011 for our first stay home.

    Im a Florida native--first trip to WDW was probably in 1975 or so but after I left the state in 1979 didn't come back for 10-15 years.
