After reading about your experience at the Adventurer's Club, I feel strangely compelled to visit. I think my husband would really like it. I love all your pictures even though the food makes me hungry. The forest of scallops, or whatever it was called, looked yummo! (Except when I say yummo I have to say it like Justin Wilson says woowee because you're from LA.)

Jo said it but I ditto it! LY/MI!

What is unfair:

1. She is beautiful, absolutely!
2. She never shows her sweat!
3. She eats like crazy yet never gains weight!
4. She has the bestest DIS friends

I'm sure I could post more but I'd just embarrass her.....

Hey! Thank you so much! I was really looking forward to PI this year, and it was just a let down. Maybe it was a fluke... But overall, we still enjoyed dinner and had a fun night!

Love that you used the side note! I think it helps that I teach dancing twice a week in addition to my 40+ hour a week job, in addition to my dog clothes business.... So, I just stay busy. And I try to eat semi-good. ie- salads or turkey sandwiches for lunch, and whatever ryan cooks for dinner!

I want to know how you can eat so much food and stay tiny! Share your secrets woman!!

Your last day is coming up...
I agree.... It was a let-down. Oh- I eat a ton, but I stay busy and active--- see my above post.... Our last day is coming up, but really, we have two more days... Our last full day, then our go home day (we got to stay till around 2 the last day)...

Got your email...And that reading is SO good... I'm going to save it and give it to all of my single friends who get down about not having someone yet.... I think it would really help them.

And yeah, I think your family gathering is a little more confusing than ours! Wow!!!! I'd be giving out nicknames to try and keep everyone straight!

Courtney, love the chapter! Bummer about PI! I love downtown disney if only for the marketplace
Awww... Oreo sounds so sweet! And he's so cute too! I just LOVE shih tzus! They are the sweetest, strangest, most human dogs EVER!

And, you are right- The marketplace is so cool at DTD.... And FREE--- to get into the PI clubs, there's a charge... So, that's what made it even more of a bummer--- We had paid about $40 (total for the both of us) to get in and it was no fun!

Oh, my friend is having twins- one boy and one girl-- Hudson and Hannah. I think Hudson is a really cute boy's name. I do like Miles too. Humm... I'll have to think...

1. Is this your first child?
2. What names do you already have picked out?

I hope that your bad night does not include getting sick. There is nothing worse than being sick in Disney. I can't wait for your next post!
Uh-oh! Maybe your guess is close to what actually happens... See my next installment below...

And you totally described A.C. PERFECTLY.... I didn't stop laughing, but I had no idea why I was laughing... That's exactly what I felt like!!!!

Oh, your new home is beautiful. Love all the pics there too!
Thank you so much!!!! Wow-- I've got you checking each day!!! So cool!!!! I'm really glad you're liking it that much!!!! DISing is so fun, isn't it????

"Hello, my name is Courtney and I'm addicted to DISing." oops!

Thank you so much for your comments... I'm so glad you're here reading!

Thanks-- So that makes three of us who had a bad time at PI... I wonder what's going on there.... I really don't know if I'd want to do that again... Maybe next time just walk the DTD area would be better...

You are making me nervous, I am pretty sure I wont be able to top your trip report when we head to WDW in Oct for HALLOWEEN ( can u tell I am excited), but we sure will try
You and Ryan need to go at Halloween, I can just imagine what kind of silly pics would come back from that trip

Anyway, loving the report, house is too cute and so is Miss Maddie! The feeling with the first house can never be beat.

Cant wait for the next installment!

Fellow southern girl,
Jenny
Hi Jenny! I'm glad I can give you a few laughs! I'm sure we gave a few people an opportunity to laugh if they were actually observing us taking these pictures! Oh, well, we didn't care... They probably were looking at us like we were crazy, but you end up with fun pictures, right!?

Oh, I bet Halloween is going to be SUPER FUN!!!!! What a blast !!!!! And the weather will be so nice then too! That will be awesome! I'm sure your TR will be fantastic!!!! Can't wait to read it so I can see just how much fun you end up having!!!!!

Thank you for your nice comments, and I'm glad you're still here reading!

Can't wait to follow you on your next adventure for your last full day...sniff....Always sad when it's coming to an end.

When is the next trip?
How about that??? I'm so glad so many people are reading and posting that I actually have three pages of comments! And yes, dinner was scrumptious!!!

I actually have two days left to post--- just one full day, then our actual last day (we got to stay till 2pm that day).

And we don't even have a next trip planned yet... How sad is that??? We haven't decided what we want to do next summer... But, in two weeks I get to go to the beach! I'm so excited. My family is going to Pensacola, FL-- and I'll be there for my birthday, so that is something I'm REALLY looking forward to! So fun!

I am SO the same!! Only, I eat MORE than Bob! Whenever we go out to dinner, I make sure he orders something I will like, just in case I need to "switch" or at least "share". Sometimes he'll even say to me, "so, what am I eating tonight?" What a guy!

As for DTD and Pleasure Island: last year we went to Pleasure Island first - caught the Comedy Warehouse early enough for the "cleaner" show, so Dana could attend and we all enjoyed it. Then we went to the Adventurer's Club, which Dana didn't really care for, but Bob & I always had found it entertaining. Afterwards, we headed back to DTD, only to find the shops all closing. Dana was SO DISAPPOINTED and made us PROMISE we would get there to shop this year. So... we went on Thursday after spending a productive morning at Magic Kingdom... We shopped and had an early dinner at Rainforest Cafe, then headed over to see what the West end looked like... only problem is, we didn't time things correctly and we were way too early for Pleasure Island activities... so.. we missed the Comedy Warehouse... Dana was SO DISAPPOINTED and made us PROMISE we would get back there NEXT TIME! lol Told her - "hey, you got your shopping in this year - give us a break!"

End of my side notes!!!

Raglan Road sounds good - we will try it next trip!
Okay, now you're making me laugh out loud at my computer!!!! Dana is so cute... Isn't it funny when you try to plan one thing, you end up wishing you had time to do something else??? Like, if you have blonde hair, you want brown hair; if you have brown hair, you want blonde hair; if you have curly hair, you want straight hair; if you have straight hair, you want curly hair.

You definitely need to try Raglan Road next time... It's fun and yummy!

I LOVE potatoes--- any kind, any way, as long as they're on a plate! I think I ate some of those off of his plate... And some of the onion rings that were on top of the steak.

I know, I know.. But the Epcot meet was actually while we were at dinner (or shortly before)... And dinner was the highlight of that night.

And yes, you are SOOOOOOOOOOOO COOL!

Ok, ready for your next entry, but kind of worried about the "worst" night part.
Hi Lisa!

You've got to find time to go to RR... It's so yummy!!!! And can I say I'm totally jealous that you have THREE more trips this year!!!!!! Wow!!!! That's AWESOME!!!!! Take me with you, please???!!!!

You know how you mentioned once that Ryan complained about having to smile so much in the photos?...

His big smile reminds me of Tad Hamilton! You know that movie, "Win A Date With Tad Hamilton"? Kate Bosworth wins a date with him, and he talks about having to smile so hard that his face hurts. Hehhee! Here's Tad Hamilton, so you know what I'm talking about. Cute!!
So, that makes about five of us now who just had a let-down at PI. Don't know why it was so bad, but it just wasn't good.... Hate to hear that you also experienced that!

Oh, my, that Tad is SO CUTE!!!!!! He's hot!!!! Isn't he dating Fergie in real life??? I think so! Anyway, he's so so so cute, and WOW, I do remember that movie and that's EXACTLY what Ryan must have been feeling like!!!! I never made that connection, but it's so true!

It was a dud and we left after a little over an hour there. We walked into most of the clubs, had a drink and walked out to the next one. We did the Raglan Rd thing too and I guess I should have done the "flight of beers" like your DH to make the evening a little more happy. On a side note, there's a little alcohol hut at the edge of the marina at DTD that sells the best mixed drinks (or so my DW says)! The guys were more entertaining there than at PI, I thought.
We really did like POP, and last year, it was PERFECT, but we just happened to have awful neighbors, and be placed directly by the pool... That's not to say that one day, when I accept the fact that vacations are expensive (especially Disney ones), that I may pay more to stay at a moderate or deluxe resort. The only thing is, we're never in the room... Just to shower and sleep and since we spend so little time there, it's hard to justify going more expensive. But, those other resorts are beautiful! I bet you are going to LOVE POR!!!!! That's going to be so much fun for you!!!!

And I hate that you had a bad night at PI too! I don't know whats going on there! It's just not that fun anymore.... Or, we could have just had a bad night, but from what everyone's posting, seems like a lot of us have had bad experiences.

And next time, I'll have to look for the little hut! Sounds yummy!!!!

Thanks again for reading!!!

As far as your upcoming rough night, my first thought was you get sick. But then I remembered the loud neighbors. Hope it wasn't both!

P.S. Your house is awesome...you have great style!
Wow! You did a lot of reading, huh?? I’m so glad you found my TR! And I’m so glad that you’re here posting! Thank you so much for your comment about the house… I get excited to go home every day… Yeah, that means works over for the day, but I get to go to my new house! And, yes, earplugs are a must for POP just in case you have the S.F. as your neighbors!

Oh, don’t let me fool you--- There are times I need to simmer down on the intake of food. Seriously… Like now—ever since we got back, I’ve been eating everything in sight. I was used to it at WDW b/c we were on the dining plan, and that’s just what you do, and it was fine there b/c we walked around so much… But I need to simmer it down here at home b/c I’m not walking as much and I’m consuming the same amount! Yikes!

So, we get back to POP and are really tired. It was later than usual for us to go to bed since we had been at Pleasure Island. We fall asleep very quickly (earplugs in, yes), and at like 1:30, I’m woken up by this HORRIBLE stomach ache. I thought I had to throw up. It was awful.

Well, I am not a good throw-uper. I’m horrible at it. I cry my eyes out. I hate it so much that when I feel like I need to, I just start crying b/c I hate it so much. It’s the worst kind of “normal, routine” sickness. So, I get up, go to the bathroom and didn’t know what to do. I didn’t want to wake up Ryan, so I just sat in there by myself. I was SO scared. The worst thing would to be sick on vacation… And tomorrow, I had to meet Disneyolic (aka DM for Dawn Maree)… I just HAD to meet her! For several reasons:
1. She is the originator of our Stalkers thread… Well, she and I both! ; )
2. She had become a good friend of mine through the DIS and via email.
3. I’d been looking forward to meeting her for MONTHS!
4. I had something for her… A New Orleans Saints baby gift for her brother’s child… They don’t sell saints outfits in New York!

So, I’m in the bathroom thinking, “Okay, what am I going to do? Worst case, I throw up all night and am in bed all day tomorrow. Ryan won’t go to the parks without me. But I’ve got to get Ryan to find a way to get to DM this gift. Okay, maybe he can figure out how to take the bus to DM’s hotel and leave it at their front desk. Then I’ll give him DM’s cell # so he can call her and tell her that we don’t get to meet after all…….”

Every scenario went through my head. But luckily, I’m a hypochondriac (well, I don’t know if that’s a good thing, but this time, it was good), and I had brought the heating pad and the phinagrin (spelling??- the medicine you take when you have a stomach virus). Yes, phinagrin does need to be refrigerated. But I brought my ice packs on the plane and then put them in my fridge at POP. See, my poor dear husband was sick with the virus the ENTIRE WEEK of our honeymoon in Hawaii. So, I learned that you should always be prepared on vacation.

Anyway- I was ready for anything… I hoped; but I also hoped that I wouldn’t have to use any of that stuff!

So, to spare you all the details, I was sick… For about two hours. Not throw up sick. The other kind. And I’m really really sorry to share all of this, but I was so scared that it would ruin our next day. Ryan finally woke up and was scared for me. He knows how much I hate being sick and he was scared that I was. You know what woke him up???? See below…

Now, here’s where my not so southern charm came out with good ‘ole S.F. Well, on one of my trips to the bathroom, I hear the WONDERFUL (MUCH sarcasm) family next door doing the usual- having conversations, screaming at the kids, watching TV- at 2:30 in the morning!!!!!! And I’m sick, no less. The last thing I want is to finally be able to fall asleep and have them chit chatting next door waking me up. So, on my way back to the bed, I banged as hard as I could on the connecting door and screamed,

“SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

I literally could not take it anymore. That was the last straw. After three nights of this I could not literally take it any more.

And that, my friends, is what woke Ryan up.

But once he was up, he took care of me like any good husband would. And, after two hours, I got over the little stomach bug. Oh, and I never heard S.F. again…. Humm… I should have done that earlier in the week.

When I heard my alarm go off at 6:00 am, I knew that I had actually fallen asleep for longer than an hour. And that was a GREAT feeling! And then when I turned off the alarm and opened my eyes, I realized that my tummy didn’t hurt anymore. I never took the phinagrin, but I did sleep with the heating pad on my stomach. Thank goodness I was feeling better! I had a BIG day today!!!!!

Magic Kingdom here we come!!!! Dawn Maree, here we come!!!!!! MGM, here we come!!!!!!! 50’s Prime Time Café, here we come!!!!!!!!

And since, I didn’t give you one single picture in this installment, here’s something to hold you over until tomorrow…





And precious Maddie modeling-





Hope this post wasn't a letdown b/c it was so short... But lots more tomorrow! Remember, we have our last FULL day plus another day (our go home day).... so lots more to post and lots lots lots of pictures for tomorrow!!!

Guess you should have banged on their door earlier. Glad you weren't so sick that you couldn't go on to MK.

Ahh, that anti-nausea medicine is a miracle drug! I know all about that one! I'm sorry you got sick, but I'm so glad you were feeling better after a few hours! You can't be sick at Disney!!
