Day 6 cont..CP, Epcot, Animatronic Keith, and AKV!!!

Day 6 continued: CP, Epcot, and Animatronic Keith!!!!!!


So after our hot and wonderful day in MK the plan was to have dinner at the Crystal Palace and then meet with Keith and Tracy in Epcot. At this point and after 2 trips, Michael and I had still never scratched the WS surface!!!

We arrived at CP, had a bit of a wait, and took some pictures:









Once our table was ready we were sat in a pretty good spot. We were the second room to meet the characters and our server was AWESOME about letting us know when the characters were coming! When Jenna made the ADR she told them it was her and Nate’s anniversary so we found this little cute decoration on each table:



Chloe had been asking to do a meal since she was about 5 and for some reason, whether it was Disneyland or WDW, it never panned out. She could not be happier that we finally made it Some photos with Pooh et al:



Joshua looks drunk!














After dinner Michael took some amazing shots before leaving MK:

Michael and Nate loved this:







After a most enjoyable day in MK we headed over to Epcot via the Monorail, which was fabulous, to meet Keith and Tracy.


Continued in next post................

I enjoyed your MK post. I have kind of mixed feelings about CP. loved the characters, and I actually thought the food was quite good. But it is SO LOUD! And the drinks (both the water and the soda) tasted lilke sewer water--actually, all of the diet cokes that I had in the MK last time tasted like that! Did you experience that, or had they fixed that problem by the time you were there?

WS at night is amazing! Heaven on Earth! We had the best time, touring the World, and checking things out.

Mexico and our friend Animatronic Keith!!!
















And a couple from Norway with Gabby’s boyfriend the Troll:




We also watch Illuminations upon arrival, first time for my family, but didn’t have the best view.

After a most magical day we headed back to AKV to finally check into our 2 bedroom Villa. We were SO excited and read nothing but amazing things about AKV.

When we entered this is what we saw. Kinda dark but you get the idea:


Our villa:


















Can you dig it? This place was unreal. While checking things out Jenna realized we had a SV!!!!!!! It was too dark to get a good photo but Holy Hannah- we were stoked. We booked the cheapest points view so we were totally shocked by our good fortune!!!!

Stay tuned………………AK view, touring the Beach Club, and DVC babyee!!!!!!!

We love CP, both girls love the Pooh characters so it works great for us, love your skirt BTW!

Fantastic that you got a SV, I have a standard view booked at AKL in September and am praying for an upgrade!

I drank water so I don't know. i drink it with tons of ice so the cold usually calms any flavor issues.

Coming your way for a SV. It is truly amazing! The photos don't do it justice!

We loved CP too. All around it was a fun time. I would do it again!

As usual, we disagree on another restaurant! I didn't hate it, but I have zero desire to eat there again any time soon.


And thanks for the pic of little Keith! Too bad we didn't take video. The pic doesn't show his awesome one-legged jig. "Look at that little Mexi-can go!" -- Hey that reminds me of when I played football as a kid.

It's a wonder we are friends at all. They had a really good pasta and their salads were good too and that's all I ate there. Oh and I smuggled out a cookie.

I hereby rename little Keith: Keith Minor. Nate has a Nate Minor so I think it's only right you have a Keith Minor.

I didn't try the shrimp or rolls but my oldest DD Gabby did! She ate about 50 shrimp.

Those are great pics of the kids with the Pooh characters. The kids look so relaxed, like they could curl up with them as huge teddy bears.

Isn't it amazing when you walk into the lobby of Jambo House? We need a smilie to illustrate awestruck. Maybe :0

Your Jambo House suite pics look like some I've got coming up of Kidani in a future installment.

My kids love steak and shrimp too. In fact they are at the Golden Corral with my mother as I type and can imagine how much they are pigging out! Our view was truly awesome! I could never imagine staying at AKV and not having a SV now. They totally ruin you by upgrading.

Your villa was amazing!

Probably sad, but I was most immpressed by the tiles in the shower!

Night time is my favorite time in WS with everything lit up.
