In a nutshell here's my update- our family finally decided to move to the Orlando area in the summer of 2016. It didn't work out for us- or at least not for me. I found out I was pregnant that December in the midst of some VERY rocky marital issues, separated in March 2017, had the baby girl that September, divorced in November. Now I'm figuring out this whole single Mom thing and still using points and miles to hack trips and be able to get to Florida often- I have to be even more frugal and smart about this now that I'm on my own. For now, we've decided that rather than selling our DVC (since Disney won't let you split it even in the case of divorce) we will trade off years for who uses the points. 2019 is my year, woo!

I'm not sure who is still here that was around back when I was very active in 2013-2014, if anyone. But no matter- hello to everyone, old and new MO friends!! I'm here now, still alive and kicking, still own DVC (for the time anyway...) and hoping to catch up with you all and your Disney adventures.

Now, what have I missed?!
Welcome back! Hope you and your daughter are doing well!

Since it's been a couple of years (and the friend going with me in 2019 hasn't been since she was a kid and can't remember), hoping to find some new tips and tricks.

Anyway, hi!
Welcome to MO!

Thanks so much Anna! We are doing really well I'm planning a trip for March with the two older kids- leaving the baby behind with her grandma this time so we can do some bigger rides I feel a tiny bit guilty and know I'll miss seeing her excitement on this trip, but I think it will be a blast for the bigger ones!

Talking Howdy

Hey everyone.

I am a former cast member (2003) and AP from San Antonio, TX.

I just purchased my Copper Creek property in May of 2018.

My first points stay was the week of Halloween at the Polynesian. I will experience my first Christmas holiday events this week. I am so excited!! Will be staying at Saratoga Springs for this trip.

I am so thankful for the information that is shared on the board. Looking forward to sharing many more memories with you all.
