That is an awesome view!!! Did you ever find out if that was actually SV or if you got upgraded?

The meal at Narcooses looked AWESOME!!! Every.single.thing.

That sunset picture is incredible! As are the really impressive night pictures at MK.

I never found out what kind of view that room really was, but I really think it was WV. At one point in time, I had WV booked and the room assigner possibly could have seen that.

Narcoossee's was awesome, and I can't wait to take my husband there someday.

Thanks, Dee!

That Great Big Golf Ball in the Sky

We got up early that morning and drove to the park that quickly has become my favorite in Disney World. . .Epcot.

Of course, we first wanted to ride Soarin', so we ventured through the stampede.


Love the detail




We all look like cattle herding through here.





We left here to do the Sum of all Thrills. We did it a couple of times before heading towards Mission:SPACE. Over at Test Track, we saw this. While fun, it really was a let down at the same time.




Spinning a problem? Not for me!


Oh, my very favorite!


I don't understand why I go over here. You wanna know a secret? I losthe this ride. But I still do it every time.


Mine! Mine! Mine!


Going over to use our fastpasses at Soarin, it looks like crowds have picked up a little.

We had an early lunch at Le Cellier, so it was good we got a bit done that morning. Coming up. . .I'm too full!

I'm Too Full

After riding Soarin', we needed to high-tail it over for our dining reservations at Le Cellier. No food pictures there because it's so dark in that restaurant, but, I just have one thing to say: I was too full after that lunch.




Run away bunny! They cook rabbit up here!


Pretty gardens

We then headed back to the resort.


Last view of the monorail


Again, great view from the room. *sigh*


Ah, relaxation.




Looking back towards our building


The pool at CSR


Main building


Again, looking towards our building

We then headed back to Epcot. Sweetie and I met up there with a DisFriend--TinkerbellLuvr7


Yummy, Grey Goose Slushie


We hopped on here with Tink/Megan


Megan and me just before she left


Sweetie playing around with the Troll


Patron Margarita from Mexico stand. This was awesome!


Sweetie and I watched Illuminations. No pictures, though. We just enjoyed the show


Last view before we left.

Coming up. . .

Caught up! I love your pictures from CSR! You got a really great view!! It is nice to enjoy shows once in a while instead of always trying to get pictures.

I agree wholeheartedly about enjoying the show.

We did get an awesome view at CSR.

They are pretty pictures of the resort, but my heart was at the Beach Club the whole time, which becomes very evident later in the trip.

Thanks, Dee!

I can do just about any kind of ride out there....except for Mission Space. Went on it once and never again.

I love those gardens by Le Cellier. They are so pretty!

And I don't blame you one bit for not taking any fireworks pictures. Sometimes it's nice to put the camera down and just enjoy the moment. I did that a lot more on our most recent trip.

Lots of people can't do Mission Space. I can understand why. It is very disorienting.

I was glad I did not take pictures that night. It was nice to just enjoy the fireworks for once.

That's A BIG Mountain!

After a restful night, Sweetie and I got up the next morning so that we could make our way to Animal Kingdom Lodge for a 7:30am breakfast reservation. In December of 2009, I had breakfast at Boma and loved it. This time, it did not wow me as much. But it was not terrible either. Then, we made our way over to Animal Kingdom, where we rode Everest several times before trying to get soaked on Kali River Rapids.


Such a fun sign!


Beautiful windows in the lobby. Again, I would love this resort if it were not so far from everything else!




Animal Kingdom not looking so crowded this morning


2nd ride. . .10 min wait


Coming for the 3rd--15 min


Now that is definitely not very surprising




Yeah, like I want my feet in dirty water where other's feet have been. . .


Sweetie loving getting others wet.

How Much for a Sweet Tea?!?

We left that morning to head over to Blizzard Beach for a little while. We love that park. It seems very family friendly, and was extremely close to our resort for this trip.




Just before leaving. . .



Hmmm. . .not sure of that translation


Yum Sweet Tea!


WHAT?!?!? I call foul! Tea is $1.00 at home!


Yeah, I'm still not convinced I'll ride that. . .


Love the theming here.


Happy ladies

Coming up. . .the best meal ever!

California Grill

After going back to the room for rest, Sweetie and I got ready for our dinner reservations that night at California Grill. For those of you who have been there, you know it is a great experience. Several times over the years, I have reserved a meal there and then canceled it. I didn't this time.

We rode the bus over to MK and then walked to CG.


I was struck again with how close MK and the Contemporary are




They look they want to talk to each other.


I love the look of BLT


We did some shopping and got a cupcake because we were hungry. We had not really eaten since Boma that morning.


Sweetie at CG


That's a pretty view


As is that


Looking red there, Amanda


Looking into the restaurant


Again, our view


Holy receipts, Batman!

I am so glad we did not cancel this one. We enjoyed our meal there. We were not rushed, and when we left, we went back to the room to rest before evening EMH at Magic Kingdom

No. . .Dancing?

After dinner, Sweetie and I went back to the room to get some much-needed sleep. By the time we got up and headed out, it was this dark:


We headed over to the Magic Kingdom for evening Extra Magic Hours and we were all ready to go since we had slept so well.


Am I the only one happy to see this promotion go away?


First stop. . .Pirates of the Caribbean




"We wants the redhead!"


"The fastest ride in the Wilderness!"


I guess dancing is simply not allowed anymore at Disney.


Which is not good, because this song, although annoying, makes me want to dance.












With all the spinning in the teacups, who could dance?


And I'm not drinking tea when a big mouse is in the pot!


We rode this one several times


Ha ha!


I've dropped a phone from the top of Dumbo. I would not reccommend dancing in here, either.


Seems Dumbo goes fast enough!


On our Dumbo


Yeah, we rode it!


And Sweetie looks all nonchalant in the middle


Sigh. How beautiful!


Time to leave.



This was an awesome day, beginning with morning at Animal Kingdom, Blizzard Beach. Dinner at California Grill. Evening EMH at Magic Kingdom.

Coming up. . .Boy am I tired!
