Ok so where has this summer gone?! Our upcoming trip is less than a month away and I haven't even begun to prepare and plan. We opted to fly in a day earlier than our VB ressies (8/9-8/14) so that we can drive down at a relaxed pace instead of being tired from our long travel day. Except I haven't booked a room for that night. Thinking I would try to go somewhere near dtd so we still had the "disney feel" without actually visiting the parks. Now wondering where I should begin to look as its just a night and would love to get a deal. Does DVC or AP get discounts on the value disney resorts? Also need to book car rental as well. My dd is in the World Series next week and we have been soooo tied up with her softball this summer that I literally haven't had time to book and get excited. I will find time to read more of the VB thread one of these nights.. I did read about the bugs/noseeums so bugspray will be on my shopping list soon! Also considering buying a beach umbrella now that they are on clearance out this way and just checking them in with our luggage?! Thanks for any help!
