I need advice, or reassurance, or a swift kick in the bottom! Here's the story...we have some friends who were planning to go to WDW in Sept. and asked if we could bid on a villa on Skyauction for them since they didn't have a fast computer. Well, we bid and won a 3 bdrm at Cypress Pointe GV for a week for a great price. They paid for the ressie (and their name is on it), but because we actually won the auction, DH's name is also on the paperwork. Do you see where this is headed? Turns out they cannot go after all...and want to give us this ressie if we can use it! The ressie states it is non-refundable and non-changeable. DH upgraded their computer for them and this would be their way of paying him back (he really didn't expect anything...maybe a batch of brownies ). Anyway, we were just there in Dec. 2003 and hadn't planned on going back till Nov/Dec '05... The temptation is almost unbearable! But it's less than 3 weeks away...DH technically doesn't have the vacation time till January, but they've been shorthanded at work and he's put in lots of OT and has been really flexible...his company is pretty flexible too and may allow him to take some paid time. The budget would be REALLY tight (we just had some maintenance work done on the car), but we would consider doing just Universal this trip as we could get more park time for less $$, and we've been wanting to try US/IOA anyway. I'm a SAHM (so no work-related issues with me) and we have no problem pulling our kids out of school for a few days. We would drive and eat most meals in the villa. DH thinks we're nuts to even consider this...though he wants to go too! We haven't told the kids...don't want them to be disappointed if we don't go, and it would be a nice surprise if we do. What do you think??
