Mike action AND Bo Action??? You're gonna get a reputation around here if you aren't careful..........

Some really great pictures of your walk back, and around Boardwalk! Too bad the room wasn't ready yet.

Never tried Captain's Grille for anything other than dinner, but the two times I ate there were really great experiences, and the food was fantastic!!! Glad you enjoyed your burger. Need to try breakfast and/or lunch there sometime.

You got some great pictures of the marina area! I really need to spend a little time away from the parks and explore this area more!

Definitely looks like a great pool to relax and unwind so you are ready for more park time!

Not bad. What a crazy FP line for TSMM, and boy can those FPs go quickly sometimes! Love RnR and that is usually at the top of the list after hitting TSMM for me too!

More great pictures of the walking trail back, and around the resorts, Boardwalk and lake! Like I said, I really like Captain's Grille, so great choice IMO!

Which normally would be great for us but with the mix of kids we will be doing more CS than my family normally would and so...spreadsheet time!

Spreadsheet alert!!!!

Okay lets see....

He is reliable - I always know where to find him ... except for one summer trip.
He is quiet, and does not complain about having to hang around while I ride or shop.
He is ready with a refreshment- sio I know he cares.

He always greets me with a great smile.

I will say he is not perfect but he is a welcome sight when I enter DHS.

I love the merchanidise and t-shirt pictures. I too have walked past the HAMM shirt a time or two, but never bought it! Maybe this summer...
I do really like that shirt, we will see if it makes it home next trip or not.

The walk from the park to the BWV looks so gorgeous and peaceful, and your pictures of the resort are gorgeous. Makes me want to visit the place on my next trip.
I'm sure it was a pain not having your room available until the actual designated check in time, but on the plus side, you both were able to kick back and relax for awhile. Always nice to take advantage of down time at Disney.
Welcome back! It is such a gorgeous walk. We would have done the pool either way, truly the only difference would have been unloading a little big of the things we were carrying around and...pool drinks made in the room

Magic Guide is the one I really like for menus and what discounts there are. The My Disney Experience one is a lot slower to load and doesn't offer any discount info but...you can make a ressie from your phone. The Undercover Touris one also shows discounts, I just prefer the interface on Magic Guide.

Yes, I have 3 apps that do the same (sort of) thing. Plus one that predated the My Disney Experience one (Disney Parks) that I've get to delete...

Which I guess will be ok until I get back from Aulani....

Thank you both for all the wonderful pictures of the walk from DHS to the Boardwalk Inn! I can't wait to try out this path in a few months, and it helps to know what I'm supposed to be looking for!

Cynthia, thank you for all the great pictures of the t-shirts! I've seen quite a few that are pretty fun, and quite a few more that are pretty hysterical! I hope you have more of them?

Thanks for two great updates!

And...
-he is agreeable - never says no to any crazy idea one might have.
-he lets you put hats, scarves, leis, or whatever on him, and he wears them proudly while you take a picture.
-he's cheap to keep fed, and what other guy can you say that about???
-he is always careful to keep those white clothes white.


Anyone else want to sing Bo's praises? If I had time, I'd dig up some of my old Bo pictures, but I have to get this house in order and finish packing for a trip to Bo's world tomorrow.

Cynthia is definitely the T shirt queen. Her pictures make me realize exactly how many T's I completely missed.

You will love the walk. In the good weather it is so plesant. Much better than the boat. IMHO!

It was a great spot for lunch. Really enjoyed it.

Exactly - you can NOT take that walk during the summer heat - its brutal. But if you can walk in the evening or during the cooler weather it is just perfect.

I would love to stay at the YC, but I always say it probably won't ever happen because of owning DVC. AT this point I usually have enough points for all my planned trips so there's no need to stay anywhere else.

I do think that every resort should have it's own resort-specific merchandise. It's like bringing a piece of the resort home with you. Well, sort-of.

aagh ALL OF MY MULTI QUOTES ARE GONE! I just caught up on like 20 pages and had some great photos to comment on. darn!!!

Now I'm going to have to come back & find the key pictures.

I don't remember a crystal store in MK and it looks like you both visited there separately. Like Cynthia, its probably a store I avoid when with Katie because I hate the idea of having to buy broken crystal.

First, I love the Poly pics. Is that a zero entry pool? I didn't look that closely when we visited there last month. It does look like a fun slide - I could totally see going down that puppy with Katie.


Mary Ellen I love your WLR photos. I truly think this is the prettiest resort. I just love the feel of it. I am relieved that JOe (in true fuzzy disney logic) feels that even though he's still "mad" at the WLR, he'd stay at VWL because you know, that's DVC, not the regular resort . hey, whatever works because it really is one of my favorite resorts.

You and Cynthia really really lucked out walking into MK for MSEP - Your photos turned out awesome!



Tell me, are those really people at the back of this float, all done up in lights? I zoomed in a few times but can't be sure. its very cool looking!!

and Yeah, this is the best part of the prade:



If there were a prize for most DisMeets in one trip, you two would have won!!



Great photo! Love the dressy look!


Very funny that you dozed of ME during CoP --- I personally always entertain the family by singing along and occasionally forcing them to sway along with me to the music Its probably good that we are not normally in there with a crowd of people to annoy.



what a good start to your DHS - RnR right away but holy cow that wait line for FP's for TSM is ridiculous!


I hope the poor girl in line at ToT was okay.

I just love the setting in the lobby


I don't think I've noticed the display cases because I always seem to be looking at all the little details.

Do you think they actually clean the furniture in this room &then reapply the cobwebs, or just let nature take its course?


Love that you got all the Twilight Zone shots -- that's the part that scared Katie. We are hoping she will get over the scariness of the pictures because she LOVES the bouncy part of the elevator falling.

If you like creepy elevator stories, take a ghost tour at Gettysburg -- there's a really good elevator ghost story in town in a building that used to be a hospital during the civil war.


Your leisure time at BW waiting for your room seems well spent. That burger looks delicious, how nice that there was no wait at all!

Can you use TIW discount at CS places, or only TS? just wondering. It definitely makes for a nicer meal when you get waited on, and if the price was almost the same, bonus!

Cynthia, did you actually buy any of those great tees? I loved the sparkly one from ToT (at least it looked sparkly in the photo. )


great updates ladies! Can't wait to see your room!

I have to agree and, as you will see, the view is much better!

I think getting to half of EMH definitely helped checking things accomplished rather quickly, which was good since we never intended on spending the whole day there.

I am wondering if we should make more ADRs if a ts will come out to be not a lot more than a cs (since cs wont have any discount)
I think it probably ends up being a little bit more for the TS lunch meals that we did because of tip, but in the end it is so much nicer than having to stand in line . Being waited on is really nice when you are already sick of standing in lines.

Me too! I think it must be amazing to have a wedding there. Or be invited to one as a guest - even better.

It really isn't a bad walk at all. I figured out that it's about a mile from the Boardwalk to the entrance of DHS. And, seriously, a mile is nothing when you are walking all day anyway.

(Boardwalk croquet lawn, Boardwalk quiet pool lawn, and the Yacht Club Marina) Too funny! (Spoiler alert, we ended up choosing the Boardwalk Croquet Lawn - and your photos along the path next to it were super-helpful! )
That is so awesome that you have your spot picked out. Each spot is wonderful and I think the croquet lawn will be just perfect. It's just gorgeous in that whole area. You can not go wrong. And I can attest to the fact that they put A LOT of effort into setting up. They were working hard. I think its save to say you will be in good hands.

Welcome back stranger! Glad you are getting all caught up again. The Halloween party was so much fun. I'm glad you enjoyed my random comments - I was on a roll.

Congratulations to Connor - those are awesome choices. Nick did not want to apply to Lehigh, which still bothers me. And then when he saw the campus recently he regretted his decision. Oh well. Live and learn. I know he is eliminating Maryland because he wasn't accepted directly into the engineering program, which seems to be somewhat common from all the reading I've done. That would be OK with in-state tuition, but not with out of state. He's also eliminated the smaller schools and is down to: VT, WVU, UD, and Rowan (full tuition offer). We just toured WVU and we really liked it and they have a combined mechanical/aeronautical program (4.5 years dual degree) that he is highly considering. It's part of our ACM, so the price is unbeatable. I am sort of torn because of the school's rep, but I actually really liked it there. There is just so much down to earth school pride and that really appeals to me, and more importantly, Nick.

This is supposed to be a fun hobby, not one with deadlines like in the real world, so just know we will all be here eagerly reading what you write, when you have time to do it!

I do stress over getting to replies because I take my commitment to my TRs very seriously. Crazy, I know. But I feel like if I can't give 100% I shouldn't be writing one.

Thank you for reminding this is simply a pleasurable pastime!

Look forward to seeing your view from BWV. The quiet pool looks so relaxing.

That was a really fun day with just the right amount of park, touring, relaxing, and eating. It's so great to be a veteran because you can just sit back and enjoy the little things. I think that's exactly what we did.

I actually didn't realize the line was THAT long, but I knew from previous trips not to panic because it does move really quickly.

They really do sell some creative T-shirts and, like I said above, Cynthia deserves a commission for all the free advertising she is doing.

Thank you - so glad you like the pics!

I totally lucked out with the bride/groom picture. Glad I saw them BEFORE my hands were full with an adult beverage.

I'll tell you what - this summer I would have no problem walking over for there for lunch during my Epcot day. It really is the perfect place for a little food and rest. Definitely on my radar now.

Lovely morning in DHS! You seem like you got quite a bit accomplished before heading over to the new resort. Both of your photos with the Coca Cola man are adorable!

As always, Mary Ellen, loved your photo walk through of the Epcot resorts! Looks so beautiful there.

It was a lovely walk. I am so glad we decided to walk instead of ride. It was a gorgeous day. Glad you like the resort pics as well. All 3 Epcot resorts are very cool (and so are the non-Disney resorts).

I was hoping our room would be reacy sooner, but it was nice being "forced" to spend all that time at the quiet pool. I just love it there.

Nothing like multiple updates to keep you on your toes! Speaking of updates, I really enjoyed your last one. Hawaii is going to be amazing.
