I'm having DeJevue. I think I saw your CBR pictures before. Did you post them after your trip on the resort rooms thread. They are great looking rooms. I have wanted to stay there some day, but I hear from alot of people how far and spread out it is, so now I'm not sure I ever will. LOL! Of course my DH hates to spend a dime more than we have to, so I'm sure we will always be in the values. Good thing I love POP! LOL! I'm sure I would be happy anywhere on property though.

I can't beleive you could even keep the secret AFTER you were on the road. I don't think I could. And if I did, DH would've blurted it out long before me. LOL! DH used to tell me my christmas presents on accident...like, it's time for you to open you earin....AHHHHH present.

Hey Jen, I did post the pictures over on the resort rooms thread. We are CBR lovers but, as you know, we'll be at Pop this year. The extra money we saved by going value is going toward Cirque de Soliel tickets!

We drove over to Pop last August and, honestly, I think we walked just as far at Pop as we did at the CBR. I think the whole "it's spread out"/ "I walked forever" comments are seriously exaggerated. I walked from the furthest CBR building to Old Port Royale (main pool, store, etc.) and it took me 6 1/2 minutes. I don't think that's too bad.

Maybe one day when Claire is bigger and you guys need a bit more room, maybe your hubby will agree to try a moderate. If you do, make it the CBR.

I actually did, while driving, say, "when we get to Disney" and then realized what I was saying. John and I both turned around and looked at Hunter. He had his earphones plugged into the DVD player and never even looked up. Whew!

I know what you mean about husband's keeping secrets. John once bought me perfume for Christmas. When he came back from Christmas shopping, he said "Smell my wrist, that's your Christmas present." When I got a bit p.o.'d about it, he said "What? I didn't tell you what kind it was!"

We're staying at CBR on our Disney trip in September and your pictures of the room are getting me so excited!

Do you find the corner rooms to be a little bigger? I know they have the extra window, that's why I was asking.

Looking forward to hearing about everything yall did on the first day!

The corner room wasn't actually bigger than the other CBR rooms but it did feel bigger. I was really excited to find out we had the corner room.

I think you're really gonna love the CBR. We do!

I'm on board!

I think I teared up a little when I read about your son's reaction. He sounds like a great little guy!

Bummed that you lost your pictures. I would have cried too!!!!!!

Glad you decided to join in on my trip report. Hunter is a pretty cool kid. I think I'll keep him.

I was really glad that the camera shop guy was able to retrieve some of my pictures. I was afraid that I had lost them all.

Hey ya'll. Sorry I didn't get my Epcot day posted yesterday.

Hunter needed some new shorts and a new pair of tennis shoes for our August Walt Disney World trip so we hit the mall yesterday. Penney's had a really good Door Buster sale and I had a 15% off your entire purchase coupon. I was pleased with myself. We got Hunter two pairs of shorts, a pair of shorts for me, two tank tops for Hunter, two shirts for Lacey and a dress shirt for me to wear to work. Total cost? $52.57!

No tennis shoes at the mall but we did find a pair of Nike at Academy and they were only $39.99. He's now in men's tennis shoes meaning the prices go way up.

Everybody laughs at me because I usually won't buy anything unless it's on sale or clearance. Hey, I gotta save my money for Disney!

And, John's brother and his family (they live in Mississippi) came in to visit yesterday. They were here until really late so we slept in and skipped church today. They were having baby christening today and we go to a big church so I think there were over a dozen babies to christen meaning there would be no real sermon today anyway.

I do hope to get the Epcot day posted today. I know I'll be sad posting that day because most of my Epcot pictures were lost. Oh well, I'll still be able to tell you all about it.

Lisa

I know, you just gotta love shopping for Disney. Lacey once said it was "so much more funner than just regular shopping". Gotta love that kid's vocabulary.

It's the only way to shop in my opinion!
