MEK, the plans sound great and it looks like a relaxing, yet fun trip as well. That restaurant where you posted the menu sounds so yummy.

I'm behind, too... oh well. Life is just like that sometimes! The cruise sounds really cool. I'm sure Williamsburg is a trip we'll take at some point; I love history and we have family in the great D.C. area.

Your plans for Hilton Head sound great, as well. I've never been in the South before, aside from a trip to Atlanta a year ago, which I loved. I really would enjoy driving down there and seeing some sights, especially Savannah and Charleston. And the resort itself looks like beautiful, too. Your dining options sound fantastic. I love Southern food, as it is still a relatively rare thing up here in New England.

I think it will be very relaxing. Well, except for the drive. That is going to stink, but what can ya do?

So many of those restaurants' menus looked delish. Ellen gave me a bunch of other names too. Its going to be a hard choice.

You are not behind. This is a sloooooow moving TR. Well, actually I hope to pick up the pace a bit this week and add more w-burg stuff.

You would love W-burg. It's chocked full of history and other fun things to do. I can't wait to go back!

The resort is supposed to be fabulous. That's why I wanted to post about it on the regular trip report boards. I want to make it informative for other DISers who may want to go there. I am really looking forward to seeing Savannah & Charleston. I have heard nothing but good about Charleston and knowing me, I will probably want to move there. I am dying to relocated further south. Too chilly and damp here in the winters. Brrrrr!

Your HHI plans sound like so much fun!! I wouldn't be looking forward to the long drive either, but it'll definitely be worth it!! Those menus sound so good!

I'm not much for long car rides so I don't envy you that but the rest of the trip sounds wonderful!

Sounds like it's going to be a great trip! I'd love to go to HHI someday, and also Savannah, it looks like such a beautiful city!

Love your Lowcountry vacation plans! (Of course, I do! ) If you don't have time, just pick up your Kaminsky's desserts to go -- you won't be sorry! Also, if you want a truly unique souvenir, get a sweetgrass basket at either Boone Hall or downtown in the market. They are pricey, but oh-so-Charleston. They are made by women who have been taught by their mothers and so on. They sit there, weaving their baskets, while they are selling the others. I am trying to remember if there is anything else I should tell you not-to-miss...I'll let you know if I think of anything.

Oh, if you need groceries for the villa, shop at the Piggly Wiggly which is near the entrance of Shelter Cove -- then, you can say you have shopped at a Piggly Wiggly. LOL!

FIRST - I bought one park ticket for December. Of course, it will be upgraded to an AP, but I had an AAA rebate certificate that was about to expire. I basically bought a 4 day base ticket with all rebate certificates. Total expenditure $3.50

Second - I was able to rebook our return flights for December, earning $69 in SWA credit.

Third - My SIL confirmed that she will be joining us in June 2012 in a treehouse villa. That will be my Brother/SIL and their four boys. Watch out!
Mary Ellen -- just caught up ...the campus looks really nice. I hope your son settles in, first year can be a challenge but the change of scenery can do worlds of good!

Your photos and updates are great. LOVE the cruise pics - I'll have to take a few notes for future trips.

AAA discounts, eh? from the AAA visa card? I've been cutting those u p& chucking them but maybe I should look in to that. AWESOME discounts!

gotta go get dressed for a field hockey game.

7 Days to Vacation!!! I'm sure you're super excited!

All those menus sound delicious, I don't know how you'll choose, but then again you won't go wrong.

Love that picture of the DVC sign Can't wait to see more of the resort when you get back, I definitely wasn't giving it much credit.

Savannah is one place that I want to visit. I tried to get my DH to stop there when we were driving to Florida. He wouldn't, thinks that he has to make it to where he is going without sightseeing along the way. ARRGG!

South Carolina is a very pretty state to travel through. The last time that we drove through all of the overpasses had Christmas wreaths on them. That was so cool!

We drove through Georgia enough times last year to keep me satisfied for a long time! I did love buying peaches & pecans though.

Your friends look like a lot of fun! You''l have a blast, I'm sure!
