In 2016 I almost bought a direct contract from Disney, with some unforeseen circumstances, I’m glad I didn’t.
In the beginning of 2017…
I got that itch to own a DVC contract. I was always told to buy where you want to stay so I started checking contracts & found one that was perfect for me. The contract was for 175 points at Saratoga Springs. I made an offer & the seller countered with an offer. That started the ball rolling for me to own a DVC contract. I was in Disney World March 2017 & got the amazing news I passed right of first refusal.
Two months later I was a happy owner of a DVC contract. I booked my first stay for October of that year. I stayed at Saratoga with my mom in a deluxe studio. That trip was magical..the room at Saratoga was perfect. We stayed in the Paddock, which was in a perfect location… close to the pool & the hospitality house. Artist’s Palette is a nice place to get breakfast or a light bite. We attended Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party which was so much fun. In March of 2018 I stayed at Copper Creek in a deluxe studio. The room has recently been renovated and was very nice. My room was right near the pool & pretty close the the main entrance, also a short walk to the buses.
Since then I go to Disney World three or four times a year.
In 2018 I stayed at Old Key West for the first time and fell in love with that place. Old Key West has a very chill atmosphere & one of my favorite restaurants Olivia’s. In December of 2018 I stayed at Old Key West again, loving it more the second time. This time we attended Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, which was an absolute blast.
This past June I stayed at Animal Kingdom / Jambo House. Wow… what an amazing place. The decor of the resort & room was stunning. Boma is another one of my favorite restaurants, the breakfast buffet was delicious. The pool was awesome. The animals were so cool, I sat and watched them in the morning & evening. One of my goals is to stay at every DVC resort.
