    I just got off the phone with MS and I am booked for a 1BR AKV club level for May 16-21! I am so excited! Now how do I get the next 11 months to go by quickly ?

    Dorothy: “Ah, ma, you ran out of steam?”

    Sophia: “No, I actually hit a wall. They put up a new Wendy’s on Collins Ave.”

    Wow! HUGE congrats on that! I have no idea how to make the 11 months go by faster. but, maybe you can start planning all the rest of the trip like every week you can plan one part of one day. like which park to go to or what restaurant would you like to go to or even small things like what snacks would yoi like to have and if your like me when you think about the snacks you imagine eating them. lol

    I just called MS again--I wanted to clarify my room request (I requested to be on the savannah, not pool, side). After researching on dvcnews.com's handy room finder feature, I realized that two of the three 1BRs on that side are HA, and one of those doesn't have a whirlpool tub! If it comes down to that, I would prefer a whirlpool tub over savannah view.

    I also realized that this vacation will be right after a HUGE (and very expensive) examination I have to take to further my career. So I am for sure going to live it up! I'm thinking definitely either the sunrise or sunset safari, maybe a trip to the spa (it looks like AKL has some spa services), and some super nice dining. I don't care if I have to live like a miser until then (especially since I need to be studying so I can be sure and pass the test)!!!

    Haha! Don't worry; I will plan and re-plan this trip (as I do with all of them) a thousand times between now and check-in. I feel sorry for the poor concierge planner who gets stuck with me!

    Thanks, everyone!

    I'm thinking of adding on the Friday at the end of the vacation, though changing to a non-club level AKV room. However, to do this, I will have to borrow points from the next year (I guess that would be 2011). Is there a way to re-arrange points so that these come from the 2010 use year, to still be able to bank them in case I have to cancel that one day? Or can the switch be made at the time of cancellation (if that has to happen for some reason)? Can these ressies be linked, or do I have to check-in/check-out for the last day because it will be a different room?
