I'm just starting to read your report. Not sure how I've missed it until now... We were at the Caribbean Beach resort for the same dates! We were there from 10/22 thru 11/1. And in the same Village! We were room 1307. Basically straight across from the bus stop. Also, the lady who cut Liam's hair also cut our DD's hair. Too cool!

I have FINALLY been able to catch up on your TR today between work meetings....which was the perfect brain break/saving grace for me today!

CBR is beaaaaaautiful. Your pictures are wonderful!

Liam is just adorable!!!!!! I'm happy to hear he was eating well and enjoying at least certain aspects of WDW, the haircut pics are precious. I know how it is with the little guy getting scared on the dark/loud rides-same thing on many of them with Henry on our January trip!

I hope your next thing to come isn't anything terrible...

I just read a few of the more recent comments from your readers, HAPPY (belated) BIRTHDAY! And only nine more weeks!!! Wow!!!

How did you like CBR? I liked our village....I thought it was really quiet, and not that bad of a walk to the food court/pool.

Thanks! I've been reading along on your TR....I'm looking forward to your future trips with Henry to see how he does as he gets older.

When I last wrote we were headed out of the Kona Café to get our car from valet. The plan for the day was for me to get dropped off at Downtown Disney Marketplace to get my shop on, while the boys went back to the resort to hang out/swim/play. Our dinner plans that night were to return to the Poly for dinner at ‘Ohana’s (it’s usually DH’s only request for an ADR each trip).

Because I’m a WDW junkie I knew that you only had to pay for Valet parking once a day. You then can valet park as much as you want and at the different deluxe resorts all day long for that $10. I reminded DH to get a receipt from the valet desk. The woman at the desk tried telling DH that she couldn’t give him a receipt. Huh? Then how do we prove that we’ve paid for valet parking for the day? I wasn’t speaking with her (DH was)….but it was obvious that she didn’t know her job very well and had no interest in finding out how to do it correctly.

That is a huge pet peeve of mine…I get really annoyed when I know more than the CM I am talking to. Now I don’t expect a bus driver to know the details of the dinning plan…but I do expect them to know the route from the park to my resort (raise your hand if you’ve ever had a bus driver at Disney get lost. My hand is raised HIGH.) And I once had a CRO CM tell me that you can’t walk from SSR to DTD….too bad her information was years old at that point.

Back to the Poly…I took over for DH in getting this resolved (care to guess who is the pit bull in our marriage when it comes to this stuff?). I skipped that woman at the desk completely….I went to the front line CM….our valet….I told him what I needed and what desk lady said and low and behold I had my receipt within a minute. Thank you young man! And we were on our way to DTD.

Now if you have forgotten, let me remind you of a couple of important things for the next little story. I was in the 2nd trimester of my pregnancy…still suffering from morning sickness (thankfully less then what it had been) and car sickness (one of my lovely “symptoms” of pregnancy) and I had been battling a cold and cough for the last 2 weeks…and the cough was getting worst. Can you see where this is going??? Now I wasn’t going to tell this story originally but it seems to be a trend in TRs of late. Puke.

Now I want to stress that this had nothing to do with my breakfast at Kona Café.

While we were driving along to DTD I started to have a coughing fit. All week long I seemed to always have a drink in the car with me that I could sooth the cough with. I had no drink with me that morning. Thankfully want I did have was a one-gallon size empty Ziploc bag. Can you say “Lifesaver”? Or at least “keep the car and myself clean saver”. (ScottNY, if you are reading this….put one in your pocket for Biff the next time you travel when he is sick.) The coughing fit brought on the puke….it wasn’t that bad but I wanted to detour back to the resort to freshen-up. The boys stayed in the car while I ran to the room for a few minutes. I was back to the car quickly….I had shopping to do! And we headed for DTD.

I can totally understand the puking because of coughing feeling! I've been battling that for the past couple of weeks. I'm sure being pregnant made it that much worse. Ziploc bags come in handy for so many reasons.

Personally, I'm a popper! I love me some black heads.

It is strange when you know more than the cm's...I've ran into that a few times!
One time I called to make "adr's" and the cm had no idea what I was talking about!

I've done the coughing till you puke thing before too...not fun! Mine was in the middle of a play I was doing.........luckily for me and the audience I was off stage at the time.

Only 2 months till the baby!!! You must be so excited!!

No fun about the puking, but I am laughing a little, Heidi, because despite getting sick, you were still bound and determined to get to DtD to shop! That's my girl!

I look forward to watching your Liam (and new baby girl!) grow up through your TRs too! Won't it be fun to look back on these in years?

I knew it was going to be the puke! I just knew it! I'm sooooo sorry! Ugh. I know about that ALL TOO WELL at Disney World! Good idea on the plastic baggies, I'm making a mental note of that one (even though I have loudly and often declared "DECEMBER WILL BE PUKE FREE!" )

I'm so happy it was quick and you were freshened up and ready to shop!

60 days until baby! and !

I always keep a small stash in my bag of ziplocs and wipes.

Thankfully you were off-stage!

Yes we are getting excited for the baby. We have to move Liam out of the nursery to his new room before I can get everything ready for the baby...and the waiting is killing me!

I was actually miffed that it caused me to get to DTD later then I had wanted!

I was so thankful that Liam wasn't sick at all on vacation and that he ate well.
Ziplocs are also handy for "dirty" clothes when you are in the park all day.

Thanks for joining us!

Seems like a lot of people are either getting sick on the way down or as soon as they get back.
