I am BEYOND excited!!! We are going Thanksgiving week, and renting DVC points staying in a Savannah View Studio Villa at Animal Kingdom Lodge!
I have been going back and forth for the last couple of months, trying to decide when to go. I had DH sold on next September for FREE DINING, but we’d stay at POP Century again. I was also thinking of Thanksgiving week, but it would cost us about $300 MORE, and 2 fewer onsite nights to go this route. We don’t want to take DS out of school for a whole week, so these two weeks that we have been thinking of were perfect. We’d only have to take him out for 3 days!
Well, after reading Wishy’s trip report and then watching all the holiday specials about WDW on TV, THANKSGIVING WEEK WON OUT!!! My trip has been booked for the last couple of days, and I just can’t WAIT!
We will be leaving New York Friday night, 11/21. Eugene will get home at about 11:30 and he will take a nice nap for a few hours. Then at about 3:30am, we will hit the road for our 1115 mile drive! He will drive straight through. We will stay at our timeshare the first night…Vistana Villages. Then we move to Animal Kindgdom Villas for the next 5 nights!!! Last night, we go back to our timeshare at Vistana Villages.
Now I have to countdown for MAY…when I can make my ADRs. Trying to decide on where to eat Thanksgiving dinner, but that’s a whole new thread! :laugh:
