  1. Yeah I was. That explains a lot.
  2. Has anyone been able to get even a single nights reservation in 2020 at the Fort? I have checked about 10 weeks throughout the year for 2020 and there is no availability. Thinking it was weekend being booked up I started checking just tuesday and wednesday nights randomly throughout the year and I am not seeing any availability for any camp site type. Unless Galaxys Edge has caused a full booking for the entire year or they are shutting the Fort down I cant seem to figure it out. I am betting if anything that the reservation system is messed up again.
  3. Something tells me you are not making it in the full hookup loops anymore.
  4. Thanks for your help and support on booking Jason. We all appreciate it.
  5. The older I get the rougher it is. Last couple of trips we stop on the way back and eother sleep somr in a roadside rest or get a hotel. On the way there though, there is so much excitement in the car that the adrenaline keeps us going u til we get there.
  6. I can tell you driving from Columbus OH to the Ft is about 1000 miles. At 65mph it gets nerve racking really quick. Going down 75 it isnt bad until you hit Georgia. Once you hit the state line there it seems to take forever and you have already been at it a good 7 to 8 hours. A straight through drive for us with the camper takes about 20 hours at 65mph.
  7. Some of my special ones do the same thing. Use it a few times and it will reset the scanners and the lights and sounds start working again. Noticed this last time we were there. Some of my nee ones took a few uses before they kicked in with the special lights and sounds.
  8. Why do I get the feeling that this is the beginning of the end for the fort. This is just sad.
  9. We are the same way. Our camping has been reduced quite a bit over the past 2 years because we save all our vacation to go to the fort. We are not in a position to sell the camper nor wouldbwe want to. With the kids starting to get older we also think they will start losing interest in disney in a few years. While the deal they offered us is pretty good compared to current rates, I am not sure the gamble is worth it. If I cant use it all the time for the fort and we have trouble with the RCI conversions then its just not worth it. Its just cheaper to book the fort and cough up the money vs the yearly renewal with the monthly payment for 10 years.
  10. This thread is exactly what I needed right now. As I sit here in our room at port in St Thomas on our cruise we are contemplating a DVC membership. The deals on the boat make it look good but the more I dig into it the less sense it makes. They are offering us a 150 point at Saratoga for a little under 25k (160 per point) with full benefits as of this time. Problem is the fort is the only place we would use it. They pulled up the point rate calendar for us and it showed availability pretty much every week for the forseeable future on a premium site for 13 to 15 points per night. Our upcoming trip for 2 weeks is going to cost 2k which is the most I have ever paid. We never stay in any other resort and if we do it is for a 1 night splurge to get away from the kids while their grandma watches them in thw camper. The more I look at it the less sense it makes. Honestly I would rather take the 25k and put it towards the down payment on a house in Fl vs the timeshare. The only big advantage I see is the RCI conversion. Even then it doesnt seem to make a lot of sense as we dont travel around much. At least we got $100 in stateroom credits and extra fast passes for our next trip for aittong through the presentation and talking to them.
  11. Is there a limit to the amount of things you ca check onboard? Can we check 2 bags, 2 cases of water, and our allowed allotment of alcohol? Are we allowed to carry on a backpack/duffle bag for things we want to keep with us like yeti cups, cosmetics, etc? Also is there a fridge in the room? I have some medication that needs to stay refridgerated and not sure how to handle that at the moment.
  12. Thats good to know. Thanks for the tip there. I saw the prices on bottled water and about lost it.
  13. It was a lot of fun 10 years ago. My first cruise I was really nervous but after we left port it was great. Now planes on the other hand, i dont do them.
