    I go next November. Hopefully everyone will have the strategy kinks worked out for me before then. :-)

    DDC XXXIV: The Original Home Of The DISDads!!!

    I had to drop by because I haven't seen or heard from Nor for too long! Now the challenge is to remember how to navigate the forum and try to decipher everyone's given names versus their DIS handles!

    DDC XXXIV: The Original Home Of The DISDads!!!

    @AirGoofy Norm - hope you're having a great birthday weekend. Gents - looking for some recommendation.. We are heading to the World in ~ a month. We are doing Typhoon Lagoon. Now if we were in the middle of the summer, I'd have a nice glowing tan. As we are going to be there in the 1st week...

    Wow...it's starting to feel like the good old days. I don't stop over one day and the next I'm several pages behind.

    DDC XXXIV: The Original Home Of The DISDads!!!

    Hoping everyone is having a good Saturday. I'm dealing with allergies or a head cold. Beyond that, I am my boss while he's on vacation and suffice to say, I've been pulled into a lot of CRAP. Managing technology is as Beverly as it gets!

    The AP and blackouts is asinine. By definition, it's a pass. Yet, they're going to say when\where you can use it? That's just silly.

    DDC XXXIV: The Original Home Of The DISDads!!!

    I am pretty sure that there is a BLT thread that actually dimensions the rooms so you see a visual blueprint of where the rooms are small bc of the architectural design.

    ***Official November 2016 Thread***

    Our kids are 12 and soon to be 9. We used to be at rope drop every day and run like crazy. We'd be back at the resort and I'd run out to get drinks or something and see families just going out at 8PM and think, "Who does that?" LOL. Now we still are there early but frequently leave early and...

    DDC XXXIV: The Original Home Of The DISDads!!!

    We started with 180 BLT points, then quickly added 50 @SSR. We didn't realize how hard it would be to get a reservation t the 7 month mark. And the 180 BLT pts didn't g very far. And even at 11 mos., the standard views were gone quickly, forcing us to look at Lake view or theme park view. After...

    Like anything, change can be difficult. After trying teh MagicBands, I actually like it better now. For example, you don't HAVE to rope drop any more b\c you can schedule them (think Toy Story Mania). We are DVC members and go every year now, so we are far more relaxed from our Commando days...

    I have a TP subscription but never thought to try getting an ADR that way. We have Ohana on our arrival but our wait-list for Beach Club just came through. We were originally at Bya Lake Tower for the whole trip. I'm trying to find a different day for Ohana now.

    I love Chicago. I've been there 3 or 4 times. Friendly people, great food and lots of things to do. And a great sports city. Northwestern was where I wanted to go but I went to Duquesne for undergrad and getting my MBA from Duquesne exempted me from several classes. So it saved time and money.

    DDC XXXIV: The Original Home Of The DISDads!!!

    We are trying to stay at all of the DVC resorts at WDW except maybe SSR. I suspect that when I eventually make it down for DDCC, that might be the time I do it. We are doing DCL in 2017 and paying cash. So we'll bank our 2017 points and have 610 points total for our 2018 trip. That gives us some...

    They do indeed. Lots of youth. How far they go will depend on guys staying healthy at key positions and the secondary. And staying away from weed! The whole family is totally excited about this trip (I mean, they always are...but super psyched to try BCV) This is our 2nd split stay. We were...

    I got some magic and pixie dust last week. We are WDW 11\5-11\12 staying at BLT. We had BCV wait listed fro the 5th, 6th and it came through. FINALLY...we get to stay at BCV. My dining plans don't mesh as well, but what the heck. We'll roll with it. Anyone else going to be at WDW at that time?

    Good afternoon, gentlemen! I was feeling nostalgic and decided to return to where my DISDads life was born! That and it's hard to get a good dose of Norm on Facebook, so I was hoping things were still kicking over here n the DIS! We are less than 90 days out from our trip and that time is gonna...
