After reading these boards for (what seems like) a long time, we finally became DVC owners while on our last Disney vacation (10/03). We purchased at SSR. We're planning to return home to SSR in (10/2005); though we may even go sooner (fingers-crossed). In the meantime we're heading to HHI for the week next week (CHECK OUT OUR COUNTDOWN CLOCK--YES!!), and we'll be using our DVC points for the first time. We are all VERY excited and are looking forward to sunny skies, beach time, and the all-important R&R. Throughout our planning, you guys have been extremely helpful in answering my questions and providing valuable information and tips, that have made vacation planning easier and the trips more enjoyable. Just wanted to say thanks again to all of you for your help !
