Hey there I had a two part question here and I was hoping your vast expertese would help me out. My wife and I just bought into the Animal Kingdom Lodge with 200 points with the intention of doing a Disney vacation every two years with a Savannah view room. However my wife came up with a very intriguing idea this past week and I'm trying to figure out if it would be the best thing for us.
Her idea is to take Thanksgiving week every year and go down to WDW for a family vacation. Now I think I have figured this out correctly and a Saturday to Saturday vacation would be 195 points for a "standard view" room and "234 points for savannah view. Are my calculations correct? Also since my points renew in December each year, I thing I would be eligible to book right away, virtually a year in advance correct?
The other thing is I have a two year old son, who will be 4 the first time we do this (We have planned a 2009 trip in Feb already). I assume that since it is Thanksgiving week the crouds would be pretty heavy. Also would the Christmas decorations be up by then?
Obviously I was wrong about two parts, but you get the picture. I think we are trying to get the most out of out family time and it is a part of the year when we both are in a lag at work so logistically it makes sense. I was just hoping to get some input on the actual timing of the trip. Thanks for your help.
