DSC_3182 by vshingl, on Flickr My sister and boyfriend share the same birthday, and this year, it happened to land on fall break. What better place to celebrate than Walt Disney World? It was a wonderful time to go, as we got to attend Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party for the first time, Food & Wine Festival, and were there for the soft opening of New Fantasyland! This is actually my 10th trip report (3rd on the DIS) - all are linked in my signature if you'd like to read some old reports! Cast includes: Me, Victoria - Disney Enthusiast DSC_3234 by vshingl, on Flickr Sister, Rachel - Birthday Girl DSC_3405 by vshingl, on Flickr Boyfriend, Max - Birthday Boy DSC_3425 by vshingl, on Flickr Rachel's Friend, Addie - Hadn't been to Disney in six years DSC_2902 by vshingl, on Flickr And Mom and Dad! I rented points from Bill at DVC Magic Point Rentals for $10/point (a great deal which really helped me convince Dad... we normally spend around $400-500/night to stay at a Deluxe resort, and for about the same price, we could stay in a 2-bedroom villa... no-brainer, right?). I had inquired with a few other renters, but they all said it wasn't possible - it was too late to book (this was in early September), nothing was available. Not Bill - he was determined to get us a villa! At first, he booked us three separate reservations - three nights at SSR and one night at OKW with a request to move to SSR. Within a week the SSR request went through, and he was able to link our four separate reservations together into one. This guy knew what he was doing!
