Unfortunately at least for now, I haven't been able to make my schedule, and DVC availability, work for this year's Pixelmania. I haven't ruled it out - if more resorts open and become available, I might still consider jumping in. But for now, I was working on booking a bunch of trips now that the outdoor mask requirement has been lifted...and I was able to get a July 4th weekend (2nd through 6th) booked (Saratoga), my 'usual' September trip for Food & Wine (which this year is running for essentially half of the year!), my dates are later than usual on 9/24-9/28 (Saratoga again), and a December trip which has always been a tradition (had to pick the 2nd week in December as the first week was all booked up - so 12/10-12/14 - Saratoga again). Pretty much no chance to get my home resort of Boardwalk...or pretty much anything else. I don't know if it's because some resorts are still closed, but those remaining have strange patterns such as all rooms booked for Friday only, or Monday only, but the other days are available. I could try to figure out some kind of crazy mixed-resort trip hopping from one to another, but I decided to just look for something that had all the days I wanted in a row, and that meant Saratoga for all three trips. Which honestly is fine, because I like the proximity to Disney Springs for nighttime entertainment and walkability...I'll miss walking directly into some parks, but since things aren't all back to normal yet, I'll take what I can get. Since 1971 - the longest period of time I've ever gone without visiting a Disney park - previous record - 8 months. Now new record - 16 months! From March 2, 2020 to July 2, 2021. Still no annual passes available...still require resort reservations each day...still many restaurants closed and some resorts closed...still lots of shows, fireworks, etc still off...still masks required on rides and indoors. So still some more to go before it's 'normal' again. But it's a start. I purchased daily hopper passes for July, but holding off buying for the September and December trips to see if the annual pass comes out by then, and maybe they'll drop the park reservation requirement by then and restore fast passes by the end of the year. I did check the Pixelmania dates in DVC, and couldn't find any more than 2 nights available out of the 5 nights at any DVC location, including Saratoga and OKW. Tried studio and 1-bedroom. Oh well! I'll still keep an eye on it - I usually wouldn't take another vacation so soon after the September trip, but since I went last year with only 3 vacation days out of the 20 I get, and this year, no vacation days until July...I have plenty left over!
