August 2010 Magical Trip: Getting our “socks knocked off” WDW style!! 10/10 update

Hey there DisBoarders! The explanation for the title to my trip review will come on day 7 – please hang in there! It is really what defined this trip as so magical!

I will be doing a separate dining review but I wanted to get started with sharing our wonderful 11 day WDW trip. Overall, we had an amazing time. Crowds were light, the heat index was high, the food was good but not exciting (well, good enough to cause me to gain a few pounds), and our expectations were generally exceeded! We had some magical moments along the way that will forever frame this trip as unrivaled and a tough gig to beat!

Who: Me – Brenda (or “trouble” as my hubby calls me and no I’m not sharing my age!) and my 14 year old daughter Emily (Em, Emmy…)

When: August 18, 2010 – August 21, 2010

Where: Bay Lake Tower 8/18-8/21 followed by Beach Club Resort 8/21-8/28

Summary of Booking:
Bay Lake Tower 1 bedroom villa with a theme park view for 3 nights. Deluxe dining. 10 day park hopper tickets. I booked using the free dining offer although I kept checking the Disney website and couldn’t find a 40% room only discount which would have been far better. I did upgrade to the deluxe dining plan since we had so many table service restaurants that I wanted to try.

Beach Club Resort – Club Level Lagoon view x 7 nights booked with 40% room discount. 1 day base ticket (required for dining package) and deluxe dining (I know, I know, believe me I KNOW, why did I do this?)

I took a ton of photos so be prepared to see our smiling faces a LOT!

Please feel free to ask me any questions, I will do my best to draw from my vast knowledge to respond! (I'm kidding of course since I'm a newbie!) Seriously, I welcome any questions.
