Oh - jealous! I think the CCV GV's are the most beautiful in DVC. Well, from the pictures. We've never had any luck in even looking at them when stopping by and asking. Have fun!

Starwind had to cut out before we could get this shot

That's fine. WL isn't aware, and I'd like to keep it that way, that my goal is to move into one of those CC GV units. I'm doing so one piece of home at a time. Phase 1A has been achieved with the sofa... next up: the big old antique icebox. Now, if you would be so kind as to let me know which unit number that was I can be sure my minions sneak, I mean add it into the right room.I wish I had known in time, me and Casey could have grabbed it up for you before they kicked us out
Sorry Jimmy! Since I booked the Cabin this year and forced them to give us a water view they may have been waiting for another groupie to give my normal room assignment to.And our 1 bed at VWL
we got a 1st floor 1st time ever and it faces the buses
No coffee drinking in our pjs on the porch this trip
For the money, I'd go with DCL. Service is exemplary. Food quality is better overall. Service is topnotch. Entertainment is wonderful. Cast members are superb, and did I mention the service is fantastic? You likely have been on a cruise, so I may be preaching to the choir, but we've found our cruises to be a better experience than our park trips for the most part.
We went to San Francisco for our Honeymoon! We have talked about Aulani - but our girls would probably refuse to care for us in our "older" age if we went without them.We aren't cruise people, so for our 30th anniversary last year we did a San Francisco - Aulani - Disneyland trip that was a lot of fun for the two of us. Just tossing out an alternative if you are looking for a non-WDW trip. A cruise sounds like a great way to celebrate the anniversary though. Decisions, decisions!

I've watched the first 3 episodes (Walt --- post-Walt --- Eisner/Wells.) I agree that the footage is new, and the interviews with the Imagineers is great. Especially when they show video of their younger selves with their voice and recollections of today. A really good series...my understanding is that there will be 8 episodes in total? I'm not rushing through them...just picking times when I know I can watch uninterrupted..
1. We've been watching the Imagineering documentary segments with much amusement and enjoyment. Some of the images, especially the first two episodes, are truly remarkable. I read where the documentarian and her crew found thousands of archived video rolls and were able to digitalize those to show. They absolutely pop with color, and many of them are scenes and footage I've never seen before mostly because they hadn't been released. Stunning.
2. We watched the latest episode tonight, and it involves much of the story behind Iger's rise to prominence and a turn by Disney to harness new technologies for newer and older rides. Again, it was fascinating, and to hear the emotion in the voices of many of the Imagineers and other creative talents as they recall what makes them happy will moisten your own eyes.
3. Still, when they were talking about how they can do so much with lighting and film and video now so that we're swept away by the illusion of magic made to seem real, I couldn't help but think and say aloud to Luv, "yet, they can't fix the leaning buildings and mountains in Soarin', can they?" How the heck did that ever make it by all the quality control folks, huh? Bueller?
Sleepy...I was reading about the new point charts for 2021 yesterday. As you indicate, there are 7 seasons...no names for the seasons any more. And the only "lowest point" season time of the year is September 1-19. The next lowest season is January 1-31, September 20-30, and December 1-23. So the very popular early December has gone up a bit in points but is still in the lower point season time of the year. I'll have to play with the chart to see how it impacts our usual trips as far as point usage goes.And finally. . .
4) The new points charts for 2021 have been leaked, released, are out, whatever. I haven't studied them closely beyond comparing the studio and 1BRs at VWL. First, for those who haven't seen them, there are now 7 seasons. That's right: 7. I'm sure this gives them more flexibility in changing point charts going forward. I'm sure that's good for them, but I'm unsure how that will turn out for us. Second, that being said, the point requirements seem to be very minor (again just looking at studios and 1BRs). Some dates that line up have remained the same. Some have risen a point per night. Some went down a point or two per night. Others went up a point or two for weekdays but went down on weekends. There was one set of dates, if I recall correctly, where weekends went up a few points per night, but it was for a short time, something like the three-week spring break timeframe. All in all, not as shocking as I fear it might get in future years.
