Just popping in to say hi. Received a very loud wake up call from Stitch this morning.

Heading to MK today. Crew wants to rope drop though they're still sound asleep.

I've already taken more photos than should be allowed but ill post just a few as I've got to wake up the rest.

Love a beautiful plane ride. Nearly bump free although I did sleep an hour of it:



Not so hidden but darling Mickey in the AoA carpet:



Tandoori chicken with spinach, lentils, basmati, and naan. Very good for food court fare. Landscape of Flavors was nuts. Lots of variety but a madhouse.



The Internet is shotty and I keep getting an error message. I'll post more later. It's gorgeous and should be a magical first day at MK. The Fantasyland soft opening is going on so I'll see what my thrill junkies think as most of FL is generally off their radar.

and to Kate, Miss Kitty, Melissa, and Amanda.

I'm laying here absolutely exhausted from a most magical day.

I wanted to post a few pics before bed. You know that theme-park-thumping/buzzing in your head you get after a long day in the parks? Well on a scale from 1-10, 10 being the highest, it's a 12.

Alison, I bought WAY too many groceries. The poor bell hop, between cases of Mikes Hard lemonade and loaves of bread, I'm sure he wanted to throttle me. But he was kind and gracious. Love DVC CMs.

Anyway, I'll leave you all with some THV pics:






































I can't say enough about how totally impressed we are with SSR and the THV but because I'm literally falling asleep, the details will have to wait.

Thanks to everyone who added insight and wisdom into helping me plan this trip! My family is overjoyed. And we're without self-hatred and celery.

Ok, that cracks me up (the line up of bags on the counter)



But your fridge is full, you can relax knowing that snackage at any point in time, desires spoken and unspoken, can be met.

And hey, you can always cancel and ADR and just eat up what's left if you feel like it!

Thrilled that the full day 1 in the parks was such a home run. Love the pics.

Sleep!

You know we were the same way on our first DVC vacation. We had a 1 br at SSR, we had spent the first two nights at Lowe's Royal Pacific and we had a rental car (the same scenario we are looking at for our next vacay) I can't tell you how much stuff she bought. I don't remember where it was, but the Bell guy who came to help us took one look at the back of our SUV and he went back and got flippy boxes to take up our groceries. I think we went to Walmart, but we had almost more than enough food, but not enough becuase I remember the day we went to cape canaveral we were supposed to have dinner at Narcoosee's (before the whole deposit thing kicked in) and she said NO WAY on the drive back. So I dropped her off at the room (well tucked her in) and went to publix to get Barber's Chicken Cordon Blue for dinner and Lipton Noodles and some veggies. So obviously even though we bought a lot of stuff we didn't buy enough dinner!

You THV looks so wonderful! I hope that you have some wonderful nights drinking that Mike's Hard Lemonade and Guiness out there on the patio, and Girl you need to enjoy that jacuzzi tub (if the THV has enough hot water to fill it! ) They each have their own hot water system, keep that in mind!

Loved staying a the THV spent 10 days there once. Only compliant was that we did not have hot water. was more luke warm. I called multiple times to and they did come to fix but never seemed to get nice and hot. How are the buses? We always seem to rent a car and was just wondering how busses run at THV. Enjoy you wonderful time.

Glad you're having an amazing time! I'm dying to check out the Treehouses. We always buy too many groceries.

This time next year? BWV! I can live through you. I really wanted to stay there for a night or two. But I do love AKV. You can't go wrong either way. Is the Wild Africa Trek just for AKV guests? Is it a concierge thing? I haven't heard of the Backstage 7 hour Magic Tour?

Love traveling with BFFs. Are you going to do the newsletters again? You're very creative.
It was a lot of work, but like you, it doesn't feel like work when your doing it! Mom didn't do BBB, but we were all there, it was a great time! Then after we were outside and you know the whole, pulling the sword out of the stone? Well they called my Dad up and had him try and then they pulled Hailey out of the audience and she did it - the look on her face was priceless! They are evidently still talking about the trip too, which is awesome!

AKV is our home resort and for some crazy reason, we've never stayed anywhere else! We just love love it there so I'm thinking this next trip of changing it up! But who knows...the following year '2014, we were going to do Vero Beach, for our 15th wedding anniversary, but now we are thinking about banking those points and going to London! So...who knows!

Both the Africa Trek and the Backstage Magic tours are seperate tours, that you pay for. The Africa Trek looks really cool - check out the website

http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/tou...d-africa-trek/

I don't think I'm going to do a newsletter for this trip coming up - I'm glad you liked the ones I did for the big trip, but I'm trying to keep this next one kinda loooowwww key. I will be doing a wrap up newsletter, which I'll send you. I am just waiting to get everyone's pictures then I'll put it together.

- Going back to catch up on your TR!
