Oh my gosh Lisa, what a tragedy to witness on your trip down. Years and years ago (1969 to be exact) my family drove to Florida from Texas and witnessed the aftermath of a fatal accident. I was only four years old but I can still remember all these years later. I am so glad Hunter didn't see the extent of that accident. Thank God you guys were all safe and avoided the collision.

Okay on to happier things. I am loving your report. I think the guy at McDonald's in Vicksburg was working at the McDonald's here in Colorado that dd and I went to a couple of weeks ago!

I love the pictures and love Lacey's cartwheels. We don't have that brand of hotel out here, they look nice!

Can't wait to read more and nobody deserves an upgrade more than you so that is awesome you got it!

You're so sweet!

Don't you just love planning surprises! I love 'em. We once surprised my mother with a surprise 70th birthday party. I took her shopping while my sisters turned my house into a birthday fest. We had over 100 people show up.

What a great update - LOVED the reveal!!! Seeing your childrens' excitement and pure joy is such a privilege to witness and share, thank you for sharing with us

What a lovely resort! We booked that initially, then changed to ASMu (yeah, we're cheap LOL). Maybe next time if I can convince my dh that it's OK to go somewhere for the third time

I am going to do the online check-in - just love the idea of our folder possibly being ready when we check in (we should be there by about 10-10:30am).

Woooohoooo for an awesome free upgrade!!! Now, THAT is a great way to start a WDW vacation!!
I'll pass that message along right now.

My kids were very excited to see the CBR again. Lacey loved it even more the further we got into the trip. She'd go down to the courtyard or the beach every night and call her Mission friends.

Maybe Disney will put a really good promo and you can convince your hubby to stay at the CBR. It's a beautiful resort.

Online check-in was fantastic and super fast.

I do the same thing. I say it then think...ummmm, maybe I shouldn't have.

The beach and the hammocks are two of the things that keep drawing us back to the CBR. There's nothing like swinging in a hammock and just watching the clouds roll by.

Thanks fo rhte "awesome parent" remark.

I love Hunter's reaction! I hope I get one just as good! I feel like I have to keep the camcorder on just in case the whole time once we get into Florida. The good thing is, Will is still pretty naive. If we pass a sign and he says "Are we going to Disney World?" and we say "Of course not." he'll leave it at that. So we should be able to surprise them.

Lisa, we are staying at POR. I'll be sure to get lots of pictures just for you (as if I wouldn't take a million!) I'm trying to decide whether to request Alligator Bayou. I think I'd like it better. I'm pretty sure we've stayed on both sides in the past, but it's been a LONG time. We were guaranteed AB when Cole was coming, but now it could go either way. I think I'm going to request it (and I'm deviously thinking of requesting the Mansions for my mom. I just think she would like them better.)

Can't wait to see your room!

Ya'll are going to make me blush.

We've visited the WL twice and we just can't make ourselves fall in love with it. It's pretty and it's certainly in the deluxe category but we weren't awestruck. I think it's because we live in a log house. Who knows?

Isn't it hard to put something so tragic behind you. It's just horrible. I do say a thank you prayer every day for it not being us who got hurt.

Shontrell just couldn't get our order right no matter how slowly I placed the order. That's why we made sure we double checked the order before we left. Poor Shontrell, I have a feelling that the girl working the second window gave him heck after we left. Heck, she gave him heck while we were still at the window.

Lacey does not do a perfect cartwheel by any means but we were just having fun. Jameson Inns are really nice hotels. They are always in a good location and we haven't found one that's not super clean yet. We have them in Louisiana.

We were happy to receive the upgrade. I didn't have any idea that our building would be so close to Old Port Royale. It was just a short walk there.

The CBR is a beautiful resort. We fell in love with it on our first trip and couldn't make ourselves want to stay anywhere else.

WL is the perfect place for the fall and winter, it just feels all cozy and home-like. I ADORE IT! I stayed there in the spring, too, and it was just as nice, but when we went at the end of November, they had all of their Christmas stuff up and it felt so FESTIVE!

I mentioned to Hunter that we'd probably stay somewhere else next year. His reaction? "Why in the world would we do that?" Every time I look at our vacation pictures, I start to ask myself that same question. In the back of my mind, I'm thinking of booking a pirate room at the CBR. We'd have something different but still be at the CBR. I hate making decisions.

Just wait until I post the day that we stick around the CBR and rent a surrey bike. Lacey and her bell! It's hilarious!

Every time Hunter asked if we could go to Disney World, we'd tell him it was too far and too much money. Thank goodness, we had the PSP and portable DVD player in the car. Otherwise, I think he'd have been pestering us to death.

Make sure that your camcorder batteries are all charged up and ready to go. I bet I checked our's a dozen times.

The only thing that I'm afraid of if we book Port Orleans is that it will look too much like Louisiana and I won't enjoy it. It has me a bit worried.

Now, I could probably get into the WL if it was all fixed up for Christmas. I'd love any Disney resort during Christmas!

What a cool tattoo! John and I are talking about buying a hammock to take with us when we go camping. We see a lot of people with them and it makes us jealous.

We laughed about Shontrell all vacation long. From out of nowhere, we'd say "Shontrell you a beep!".
