We had a great girls trip in williamsburg this weekend. Well, all except for yesterday's rain, but since I was the driver I didn't mind getting an early start home. The best part of the weekend was that the pool at the resort was open and it was 84 sunny degrees on Saturday. Sitting by the pool with an adult beverage was definitely an unexpected treat.

I will be back with replies tonight!

Oh - I am subbed to a June car rental code and just booked a standard car for 10 days @ $217 with taxes. I'm pretty happy about that!

Welcome home! Glad to hear you had a fun trip, I look forward to hearing about it. DC was great! I am slowly writing a Mini-TR on my blog if you want to take a look: www.joeandbrook.com I hope to get more of it posted this week.

So family IS coming. Hopefully it all works out and is a load of fun! I'm glad to hear LJ is making it!!

Your update on the American Adventure gave me chills just seeing the pictures again! We haven't seen it since '09! Little ones don't do well in there, unless you plan it with nap time. Perhaps we can do it on our February trip, I'd love to see it again!

As for QS on the QSDP, a few off the top of my head:
-Wolfgang Puck's
-Sunshine Season's
-La Cantina de San Angel
-Starring Rolls (great value, the sandwich & chips alone is like $9.49, plus they throw in one of those cupcakes and a drink!)
-Fairfax Fair can be
-Cosmic Rays can be
-Smoothies from Auntie Gravity's (Tomorrowland MK) for a snack credit, they are big, yummy and over $4!
-Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich from the MSB for a snack credit

I know, isn't that the saddest tree?

Is IS a panera bread bag - good eye! And my cats do plop right in the laundry basket or suitcase or empty box or whatever they can find. So darn predictabel!

Awkward is the perfect word for how I felt. I kept thinking they were really someone right there in the world showcase and I kept looking around, but I'll never be able to prove my hunch. Very creepy!

I am dedicating this reply just to Glenn since I had to skip him last night!

I am very glad he is going too and, you're right, I can't make him have fun. I can only show him the way. I think he will be surprised at what an amazing job Disney does. I think he will be shocked at how much there is to enjoy! Yesterday I ordered the DVD for his family so I hope they get it in time to watch before they leave!

I didn't realize it took 10 years - No wonder they sell those kits. Any sane person is just going to give up after 6 months and say "forget it".

Let's hope he becomes a convert, although that might be a tall order.

Well I don't have any first-hand knowledge to say that it takes 10 years...I just threw a number out, but I think it is several years before it starts looking like a bonsai.

Hey Brook - thanks for stopping by. I had another fun trip to Williamsburg. I love that place! It's my Disney substitute because of the great variety of things to do.

I checked out your blog and it sounds like you had a fab time. I really need to get to DC again. I haven't been there in such a long time. I need to fit it in somewhere.

I am very glad they all decided to come and I am especially glad that LJ is coming because he was such a breath of fresh air a few years ago. I know he's older now, but hopefully he will love it just as much.

So glad you enjoyed the pics. I hope by Feb Henry is just the right age to sit through it and enjoy all the animatronics.

It was a great weekend. Saturday was unbelievably nice and they already opened the pool! I only live about 4 1/2 hours north of Williamsburg, but I can guarantee you there are no open pools here. Bonus! Score!

I don't think he'll be a convert but I can't imagine him not finding some fun down there. He really needs a vacation BAD and maybe, just maybe, he will relax a bit.

I'm sure it does. I can't wait to get a real bonsai this summer. I may surprise him with it and buy it after he goes home.

Firsts & Favorites!

Hi DIS friends -

I have to admit that after working on this TR since October, and writing about Williamsburg, HHI, and WDW, I am starting to get a bit tapped out. It's been a busy month and I've started exercising everyday. That definitely pulls me away from the computer more. The good news is I am starting to get my waist back and that is never a bad thing!

But I AM going to finish this TR and it is traditional for me to do a list a "Firsts & Favorites". Only I am going to incorporate it into a trip review.

So let's see how far I get, shall we.

Oh - wait - remember that $217 rate I got on a standard car for June. Well I just rebooked yesterday with some codes I found in the June rental car thread and I got a standard car for $147 through Alamo (10 days and including all taxes). I seriously don't believe I can get a car that cheap, so I'm going to keep a backup reservation just in case. But in the meantime - Can I get a woo hoo! That's a lot of Disney drinks we're talking about.

There are some other developments in the June plans, but I'll save those for later. You didn't think I would make it to June without more drama, did you????

Wednesday December 14th

Leave BWI with a late arrival to Orlando.

Merry Christmas



"First" Stay at OKW







Thursday December 15th

Up Before the Sun to Go for my "First" Run at OKW





To MK Solo



















Nicks "first"time being an AP holder!





"first" pictures inside Splash Mountain



"first" pictures inside Big Thunder Mountain





Nick's "first" Lunch at LTT



Denny's fish - definitely a "favorite" - so good!



"first" DISmeet with Roxychica7 (Jess)



"first" time I noticed this in the train station



"First" daytime pics of OKW

Continued

"first" pumpkin martini



"first" sushi and flatbread at the Cali Grill





Nick's "first" time seeing the castle, the Electric Light Parade, and Wishes from the CG observation deck

















My favorites for this day - Probably walking the GF beach, sushi and flatbread, and watching Wishes for the Cali Grill!

Next Up - Firsts & Favorites continued

MaryEllen, I am so far behind on everyone's TR's...including my own. I'm just starting with everyone's last update and going from there or I'll never get caught up.

Love your Firsts & Favorites...and I absolutely love that t-shirt with the drinks from the different countries.
