Air Supply was great and agree I wished the show was longer.

Update 55

After our hello’s we were seated at the very first table (the walk was too much, LOL) and we looked over the menu.

I am not quite sure what everyone had so I will post the pics.

I know Aubrey and I had the salmon.


I would say Vinny had the steak.


This was my dessert.


Vinny’s dessert.


I also had a long island iced tea.

After our dinner we went to DTD.








And the destination is.


Nobody wanted to go up with me. I still went though.

I liked the new pics on the balloon.








Soon I was up in the air. I took video of it. You will first see Illuminations and then you will see Wishes. I caught the ending of both. I will admit I stayed in one spot (I had Hong Kong going through my head) but it was still fun.

Here is the video of the ride. http://youtu.be/uNwFAhDVfS4

After my ride we went towards the Marketplace.


This was our main destination.


We had to get Aubrey a ticket. We wanted to get her the DVC PAP but we could not so we ended up getting her the Florida AP. I do hope she uses it.
After this we went back to the resort. We had an early morning coming up.

Up next,

Um no, I specifically asked for Wednesday….

Catching up. I think they should make all of the Eat to the Beat concerts longer. Boyz II Men was too short also. I am kind of glad I missed Hanson. My daughter LOVED!!!!!! them We drove to WDW when she was about 13. Picture 16 hours in a car listening to MMMBop over and over and over. Maybe that was why my son was sick to his stomach the whole ride down and back.

Dinner looked good although seafood is not high on my list. The steak I had there was the best I had all week. You spent a lot of time at DTD. Glad you finally got to go up in the balloon. I'm REALLY glad I didn't go up in the balloon.

We love the Eat to the Beat Concerts - we hope this October we get to see new entertainers for our week.

Agreed that the concerts can be a bit too short!! I guess that's why they have 3 shows per day though!

The balloon...I think I'd stay on the ground, but that does sound like fun!!!

I'm still not sure I can stomach the balloon. Neat that you saw the fireworks though! I was looking at the video and thinking it must have been a really clear sky-I could see the stars in the sky. Then I realized it was just dust on my screen.

I am glad, thought you forgot about me.
I would have bought her a walkman or discman or something.
I love seafood. I could it any day and be so happy. Mostly scallops and shrimp.
Yeah we did. I think we go back again later. LOL
I am glad I did too being it was a goal to go up at night. It was pretty but it was high up there and I never let go of the railing.
You would have been fine.

I am sure you could. I have a fear of heights and it is just a matter of getting over it. Once on there is nothing that can be done.
It was.

Thanks for looking. I was really happy I got to see the fireworks.
I am going to miss it being we have now banned october for how busy it was. Now though if Taylor Dayne is announced I might fly down.

All caught up! I cannot for the life of me understand how I missed those chocolate creations at the festival center. I was there at least 3 times I think.

WOW!

I agree that the concerts are a bit short, but so much fun. Glad you both enjoyed Cape May, what did you think of the Turf Club? I want to go on the balloon...hmmn I bet a bunch of my crew would be up for that on the next trip. Hmmmnn...cheaper than a fireworks cruise!

Were you not able to get her the DVC PAP as she was an adult and not living with you? I'd heard they were pretty strict on the same household aspect. Still, the FL AP is a very nice gift!!

They were tucked in the back by the Chase lounge away from things so maybe that is how. They were incredible.
They are fun.
We love the Turf Club. Great place to eat and relax. On warm nights it is really nice outside to eat.
Well you have to time it right for the fireworks and you won;t see them all.
They were very strict about the PAP.
