    We would especially like to take part in Lou's Walkabout. With it being so early, has Lou made any mention as to when that may be?
    He hasn't announced anything yet. I'm hoping it's on Friday of the first weekend again.

    I agree, drinking and running don't mix! The lady we met at Lou's walkabout who said she would be fine even though she was drinking that night was wrong. She was near Todd, Shelly and I before the 5K and she was throwing up. I looked at her and thought oh NO! She looked at me and said she really didn't feel good and threw up again. I really felt bad for.

    I rented points for the Wine and Dine in 2010 from a rental site, not a known DVC member. Smooth and easy. Studio at Old Key West at a price significantly lower than a room at a host hotel. (And we got a kitchenette).



    Southwest gives me as much Diet Coke as I can drink. Start off by ordering a double.

    As for the after party, while at some of the events surrounding marathon weekend I spoke with various people from RunDisney. They assured me that they had received a ton of feed back (mostly not positive) about the after party and were already in the midst of fixing the kinks. Nothing specific was mentioned, just general assurances.

    I really liked the room at OKW. I thought it was a great deal too.

    I'm so glad that they are trying to fix some of went on during the after party.

    Well the final piece of the puzzle is out of the way as we now have a room! We were able to book at BCV through a point rental company (Thank you Todd ).

    Hopefully work will slow down some to where I can spend some time online that isn't work-related. Hope to talk to everyone soon and good luck to any Bears/Packers/Jets/Steelers fans out there.

    Quite glad I could offer some help to friends.

    Anyone going to be there for the Princess Half or the Beauty and the Beast 5K? I know they are right before "Lou's Cruise" sails.

    Just wanted to update that we will be staying at BCV. We have rented points from a very nice owner on the rent/trade board on the DIS.

    Now all we need is the jetblue/southwest schedules to come out!

    Tracey and I aren't confirmed yet...still debating, and may have friends coming as well. Have an unreasonable hope that a studio will be open at BCV/BWV at the 7-month window If we do it will be for several days ending no later than the 10th (when my AP expires).

    OKWLover has a similar thread on the other boards.

    Wasn't it on the 10th last year? Or was there more than one?
