Flight was good, left late but made up time in air. Room not ready so had something to eat then went for a mani/pedi. Seriously people...this has to be one of the best pedicures I've ever had. Anyway room ready..nice studio until my brother comes with his family then we move to a 2BR lockoff. And guess what? I don't have to change rooms! The 1 Br next to me will be empty come Friday! :) quick obsveration...smaller sizes of shampoos and soaps. 2 washes with this new stuff and it's gone. Glad I brougnt more from home. Been raining and unfortunately we're in for more....Saturday is suppose to be bad. :( Didn't go to park today. I'm tired...up since 3:30am and was too excieted to sleep:rotfl2: Don't think I'll have trouble tonight. Miss my laptop...it's weird using my phone! Night..see you tomorrow.

Day 2 - well rested! Hey did I tell you that the CM who checked me in was a woman I went to school with? And I mean elementry, middle and high school! Cool...we had dinner, and I'll see her again before leaving.

Ok...weather is sucky. Today clouds so I'm sitting here coffee in hand trying to decide on pool or park. Tomorrow not much better but the killer days will be the weekend. Now lots can happen, this is Florida. But we all have our fingers crossed for no downpours for the entire day. We'll see, but regardless, we'll have a great time!. I'm still happy I don't have to move; my friend "peeked" for me. Later...

Hope the weather improves for you and your family. Which section of SSR are you in? We'll be staying at SSR for the first time at the end of July and we haven't requested a specific section.

Its really nice that you won't have to move out of your studio when your extended family comes. In situations like that, does the front desk give you a new key card for your villa when it switches you from a studio to a two-bedroom lock off configuration?

Just be happy you are not at home!

TEMPS are forecast for the HIGH 90s

Rain would be wonderful in the NE!

And yes; I'll get new key with dining added. DB wanted the dining plan so we all had to get it.

Today was GREAT! Went to MK for early opening and hit all my favorites. Walked on Buzz, Space Mountain, Haunted Mansion and Pirates! Sat in my favotite rocker by HM and people watched. Strolled Main Street and hit some shops. There was a thread recently about how warm the shops were when they were here. Well I have to admitt the stores are not as "refreshing" as they use too be. Seems WDW is in fact trying to cut back expenses. Don"t get me wrong; they were not hot...but you could tell. Now today was 85. Next week high 90's so it may be more uncomfortable in ths shops. Come to think of it, the attractions were not too chilly either. Now the bus back was freezing so not EVERYTHING has been cut back! :rotfl2:

Hi neighbor! We're in Congress Park and (knock wood) have had fabulous luck this week. We dodged rain drops at DTD yesterday and a few at Magic Kingdom today. The biggest change I've noticed is how they have "broken" the boats - the only way to get back and forth to DTD is via PI - dumb. We're here to Sat - hope your trip is all that you wish!

Linda! I'm thinking of you there with all that rain.....DEBBY came out of nowhere!

How are you and your family faring? Braving the parks anyway? I'll bet that there are no wait times, at least!

Keep us posted! :hug:

I'm glad that even a hurricane cannot dampen(pun) your Disney spirit.

Hang in here and wear your floaties if you have to! :thumbsup2

Yesterday was a beautiful day after a short shower in the morning. And today is going to be even more beautiful! So we are going to hang out at the pool and enjoy our last day at Disney. Tonight we have dinner in Italy and one last stroll around the. World Showcase it is! Well until October.

Totally forgot to tell you that we ate at Raglan Road for the first time. What a good restaurant! Food was great as was the service. I had fish and chips and as much as I love the Rose and Crown, the fish here was better. SIL had a chowder, DB a steak and even the kids meals were good. Not the standard Disney kids offerings..they loved their meal. Had to share!

We went to Raglan Road last Oct. when we were there and loved it, too! The shepherd's pie was to die for. Looking forward to eating there again in Oct.

Glad you are having a nice time, enjoy your last day! Thanks for taking us along.

Well all good things must come to an end....I'm back home. :sad1: We had a fantastic time even with Debby hovering for 4 days. Brother and family absolutely loved SSR and would even consider purchasing but not right now.

Well I have lots to unpack, thankfully nothing to wash, but none the less there's lots to put away. Hummm...an Owner's Locker is looking better and better.

Have a great weekend.....will be back to give a few highlights later. :goodvibes

Wow....it's hard to believe that just 36 hours ago I was in WDW. Well, you know what that means....start planning the next trip! This time I think I'll have my lap top. Using the smart phone was nice, but awkward.

So disney peeps, it's on to the next adventure...WDW in October for F&W! Thanks for keeping me compan:goodvibesy....

It really wasn't much of a review this trip. I didn't have a laptop and well the weather kinda sorta changed most of our plans. So we really winged it this trip! :goodvibes

I love SSR...I know it get's a bad rap for whatever reason but I really have no complaints. I hope someday you do get to stay there and see just how beautiful it really is!
