I find that when I brief friends or co-workers on DME and luggage it's like I'm explaining the mysteries of the universe. So I think a lot of people just don't get it.

Good for you for tipping. If I were on your bus it would be two of us tipping at least.

My sister and her family stayed in a GV there last year. The pictures alone are amazing!!! They absolutely loved it!!! You'll have a great time!

We asked Loni & Pam about the pullout, and they both thought it was great! Just call for an extra blankie to go with it for your parents-

Second, I am the designated Soarin' runner. I leave my slow poke family in the dust, race to Soarin', grab fast passes for everyone and then when their slow selves FINALLY get there, we jump on the standby line. This way, we ride twice with no significant wait.

Third, Fourth and Fifth - Yum! Tequila!

Very smart to run ahead!!

Ok, now I didn't dance. But I did start singing the song as soon as I saw the word "hustle". Thankfully, my office door is closed.
You should have danced- dancing with Kara is ALWAYS a solid gold good time...

OHHHHHH!!! Sooooo sweet!

And we have stayed at AKL before, in a regular savannah room (actually sat out Hurricane Charlie in there ) and we would love to go back some day soon, but you know, OKW is having a strong grip on us.

Yes- I understand how it is getting hooked on certain resort...

LOVE all the DVC merchandise - I guess some shopping is in order for me. YES, I do wear that kind of thing!

Me too! Proudly, like a total DISgeek!!

Your Epcot day sounds FUN so far! Riding Soarin to start the day! and the Ditch and the Wine Bar! You girls ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!

Can't wait for more!

What did you do about bringing adult beverages onboard ship with you? On our next cruise, I think we will first 'cruise' around Epcot and buy some wines around World Showcase.

Well, we did NOT bring the 3 bottles of Guavaberry I brought from ST Martin for Kara-that stayed at the BW...somewhere........... but you'll have to wait to see what we DID bring!

Also, Ellen I have to thank you for a previous trip report where you mentioned Sum of All Thrills. We wouldn't have known about it if it wasn't for you. And yes, I hit the WIMP button first time out. Not anymore though!! Double loop for this momma!
Yea- I think we all hit the wimp button on the first ride- myself included. But don't tell Joanie!

Oh my gosh, I just read!!! How awful!! Sounds like a disaster. I can only imagine how those teachers must have been feeling, let alone the kids. Yeah it's nice and all to make it up and go a later date but now that's an entire day of school that was missed for nothing!

MMM, Ritas and vino, and cupcakes! What a way to start a DIS mom trip off! The only thing i haven't seen so far is a pic of Ellen kissing a monkey?!? I also expected to see some dancing there with the parade in SAANA.

Kara - I was humming the song to myself! Can't give up all my secrets! Do the hustle! Da da da da...

So glad I found this report! I had contemplated crashing your little party, but alas I was cruising myself May 9-14, had a conference in Orlando May 14-17, and Mom came down for a visit May 24-29. There was no way this old body could handle anything else!

So cool Disney can make little Hidden Mickey's in the water with lemon and lime slices even!
