    Pre & post cruise DVC-thinking painting with a view (BLT) I have NO artistic ability-thoughts? Friend does! use dining # to book? How soon prior to our trip? Pay upon booking? Post cruise-thinking SS-never been-2 Adults-girls trip.

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Denise!

    It sounds like you are about to have the BEST vacation with your girlfriend! I love an adult-only trip - its the perfect way to rest and recharge from the craziness of everyday life. So, there is a palette-full of choices when it comes to art classes at Walt Disney World Resort, and I’m happy to “paint” you in the right direction!

    As a Disney Vacation Club Member, you have a fantastic opportunity to test your skills at Painting with a View at the Top of the World Lounge! (No worries about ability, I’m an awful artist, and I have fun at paint classes!). The course is most Tuesday mornings and Thursday afternoons. You can book it by calling Member Services at (800) 800-9800 up to 180 days in advance. If you want a same-day booking, call the Community Hall at Bay Lake Tower at (407) 824-1347. You will pay in full when you make your reservation.

    Now on to post-cruise! We love Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. The location is perfect, right next to all the dining and entertainment at Disney Springs. When we stay, we take nightly walks over to the Food Trucks! They also have a fantastic spa, which would be a fantastic ending to a ladies-only trip. I highly recommend the Citrus Grove Signature Massage - the foot reflexology is incredible!

    I hope this helps you sketch out your options. Please come back with any additional questions, have a fabulous vacation!
