    Too bad I will be leaving the world on the 15th. It’s probably more than I should spend anyway.

    I know it would be next to impossible but it would really be nice if they could announce these special dinners and things sooner. As a DVC member, I generally have to book my trip at least 7 months in advance.

    Good point, Mark! DVC members really need that advance notice in order to stay using points.
