We are huge Kimpton fans and back then I was getting killer deals with them through Starbucks. They do tend to have nice last minute specials and good AAA rates. But you are just there for the night so....hmmn. S. Beach is a hoot though, there is a nice Lowes which I think is more kid friendly.

Are you going to get a car in Miami? That would influence things I'd think

We are staying at the Country Inn and Suites. It gets decent reviews on Trip Adviser. Staying with friends is kinda six of one, half a dozen of another...it would be nice not to have to worry about getting around on your own though.

Very nice update.

Have a great time at Club 33 in a few more days.
Thanks Bret. It was a great party. I'd love to do it again only this time I'd make the kids pose with Snow White and Dwarves as well as check out some of the rare Villains.

Thanks PIO. I'm goofy excited. We're staying the night prior at the DLH. I'm so looking forward to seeing the refurbed rooms. The light up/fiber optic headboard looks so cool. I still haven't decided what I'm going to wear but I'm now leaning towards jeans as its set to rain a lot. I hope we won't miss RSR but the kids and I will be back for two days during the first week of April.

I wasn't planning on getting a car for the night. I'll look into the Lowe's. Adult friendly is no bueno for this trip. Haha! Thank you for the recommendations. You've always got great travel insights.

I agree about staying with friends......I hate to invade someone's space for just a night though if that makes any sense. All the cleaning and prep that goes into having house guests and then staying for only a night.

I googled your hotel, it looks perfect. I've had good luck with Trip Advisor too.

Isn't the Halloween party so much fun? I don't think I ever made it over to Pirates, but I certainly love the way they have it lit up.

I have to agree with you - the whole Goofy's candy at the end it so silly. I just like to forget its there.

Love the costumes and you got some great family/group pictures and magic shots!

Its a blast. October is my favorite time to go so far between MNSSHSP and F&W, it's fabulous. We've been in May and September also.

When is your next girls trip?

Did you guys get a lot of Photos? I was on the Photopass with everyone but didn't go through everyone's photos. Im all about the Photopass share again. Cynthia did a great job. Lots of works for her and saved us all a bunch of money.

Happy Birthday - can hardly wait to hear about Club 33 !

Things have been crazy here the past 2 weeks. My brother had a severe stroke. He can not move his left side. They did start OT/PT and now Speech Therapy. He is 53. Pray for a speedy recovery. Thanks.

Saying a prayer for your brother. I had a stroke in 2007 and my right arm was paralyzed for almost a year. My hand recovered faster than me arm. Rehab isn't easy but it is so important.

Sorry I'm such a slacker. Got home last night and then to work early this morning. I'll have my Club 33 update posted soon hopefully.


dvc at last, I'm so sorry to hear about your brother. Sending healing vibes for a speedy recovery.

I hope your brother mends quickly and fully. My father suffered a major stroke almost 8 years ago, I know how hard it is.

Thanks you for the birthday wishes. I'm hoping to get my Club 33/ birthday weekend posted tomorrow night.

I'm slacking for sure. Michael left for Sonoma on a Ralph Lauren job so I was shot back into reality rather harshly after my fabulous birthday weekend. I haven't even unpacked.
