I live in Seattle & took my first trip to Dineyland as a baby. I finally made it to WDW for the first time in 1998 & Disneyland Paris in 2007. Finally, in 2012 I became a proud Disney Vacation Club member!

@beentoall I was just going through the mail that arrived while I was at Disneyland last weekend and discovered your postcard from Disneyland Paris! Thank you!!! I will be staying at Disney's Newport Bay Club in September and am so excited! Thanks again!

Very nice. Wishing you a great Paris vacation and run! - jacdanfan  13431.2 #6 6:14PM
 Thank you for posting.  So glad it got to you.  Paris maps still haven't been sent as the Star Wars stamps haven't arrived yet!  I'm sure you'll love the Newport Bay hotel.  I stayed there about 12 years ago for my daughters 6th birthday.  They are expanding the hotel at the moment.   Good luck again with the race.  I'm off to do a local 10K this morning:-) - beentoall  1304.7 #0 10:54PM

DVC Members... Have any of you ever used David's Vacation Club Rentals (or another similar service) to rent extra points? Since I will not be visiting WDW this year, I have been looking into this option. Does anyone have any feedback or tips on the process?

I know others have talked about it. We'll keep bumping this as people come on for stickers and the later posters to see if someone's done it. I remember a whole post on it but not the username sorry. My impression was its a good thing to use.  - secretagentangel  8515.4 #11 6:46PM
Thank you! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1476.9 #3 6:48PM one has ever rented DVC points??? - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1476.9 #3 6:28PM

On July 17, 2015 I had the pleasure of experiencing Paint the Night for the first time. As a lifelong Main Street Electrical Parade fanatic, I was skeptically optimistic.PTN did not disappoint! I have described it as an MSEP update, using the best of today's technology, yet staying true to the original. Disney did it right!

Galloway Method runners, have you heard the news? After over 40 years, Jeff Galloway has done away with the 1 min walk break and replaced it with a 30 sec walk break. Apparently the benefits of the walk break take place during the first 30 sec. After that, it just tends to slow you down. To find your new run:walk ratio, just cut your current ratio in half. For example, 3:1 (min) is now 90:30 (sec)  More...

- CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1476.9 #3 5:00AM
Good to know! Thanks for sharing! - goofygal  12797.3 #7 6:05AM
Interesting--I didn't really do well with the 1min walk/run method, but I might actually like the 30 sec. better. Β  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  659.2 #335 7:13AM
I'm the reverse! I went from :30/:30 to 1/1 and got faster. I'm currently thinking about bumping up, though, so I guess :45/:30? Weird... - ThatStarWarsKimberly  417.6 #577 12:28PM
I think it's all about doing what works for you. I have been running 2:30-1 for a while. But, I'm excited to try 90:30 to see how that works for me! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1476.9 #3 7:14PM
