Today I'm feeling lighter, particularly in the wallet. About $16,000 lighter to be more specific. Yesterday, my wife and I finally did it...we bought into Disney Vacation Club!!! We now own 160 point investment in the, soon to be open, Kidani Village at the Animal Kingdom Resort.
We've been back and forth for a while now on whether or not to make the commitment. The incentives they were offering finally pushed us over the edge. By purchasing 160 points we received a free 160 incentive points to be used within the next year at Saratoga Springs. This is in addition to the points we purchased. We also received a $1,280 credit towards the down payment on our purchase, and a $500 Visa gift card to be used at our discretion. With all that, how could we say no?? It sure beats a hole in the backyard...just kidding Chris.
The best part is, I'm using the 160 incentive points and the $500 Visa gift card towards my marathon trip. I'll be cancelling my reservation at Port Orleans once my reservation at Saratoga Springs is confirmed. Also, it looks like I'm no longer traveling solo for the marathon trip. One of my great friends has decided to join me for the trip. How could he say no, when I told him he only had to pay for his airfare and park tickets??
Anyway, just thought I would share some exciting news with everyone!! Hope all is well.
