Thanks! It was a gorgeous day. I would have loved for our room to be ready a couple hours earlier, but we made out just fine so no complaints!

I will definitely be going back to the Captain's Grille! It was a very enjoyable meal and a great way to get away from it all.

If you never had, you really should check it out. It's a wonderful area and I love staying in the vicinity.

It its definitely on the list of my top 3 quiet pools. Love it!

RnR is always my number one ride. I like the adrenaline rush so its great to get that out of the way. Plus the line usually gets longer than ToT so it makes sense.

We really enjoyed our walk. I'm not often there when I can really enjoy a walk mid day with perfect weather. Usually its just too blazing hot. Today - perfection.

I am very disappointed that the price is being raised to $100. I really think that's a little steep. But I am going to purchase one this summer because I will use it for three trips again, so I guess it's worth it.

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 think you summed it up just perfectly. Right on Sister!

I know the first time I walked that path I really wasn't sure what it looked like, how long it was, or where to find it. So I am glad that the pictures helped!

I'm pretty sure she went back to MK and bought some for her boys so I suspect more pictures are in the works.

As expensive as it is, broken crystal would NOT be good. Better to avoid.

Yes - its zero entry. I did not go down the slide so I can not attest to its fun factor.

It really is a special resort and I am also relieved that Joe that will consider staying at VWL. Now that you belong to DVC you definitely have to try all the resorts. Its a right of passage!

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!!
We really did luck out several times during this trip. I'm thrilled that we got a great parade spot.

As far as the back of the float - I don't think they are real people. Maybe just statues. I guess I better look again.

I agree that the Captain's Grille is a hidden gem. It will definitely be a new "go-to" place for me.

You can't miss it, promise! You can however get turned around if you try to cut through and don't have your bearings...but that's within the BW itself

Not sparkly, that would have been cooler, lots of white dots basically. I did buy the boys a Tee, as did Santa and a couple for myself. Whether any of what I ended up with has been seen yet in the trip...remains to be seen

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

I'd go back to CG, someday I would like to try it for breakfast. Maybe we will do that instead of Kouzzina on arrival day after the red eye in Dec.

I'm glad we found them, I'd never done a photo with them before.

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.

Just askin'................

Of course I know some women fall for that sort of thing..........

Okay, I'm back catching up! You guys had a great morning at DHS! Lots of cool pictures too, as usual.
I'm so excited to see your BW pictures of your room - we were "this close" to calling on a resale contract there the other day. I've yet to stay there though, probably should try it once! Both of your resorts this trip are on my list for next trip!

I have been with the exchange about Bo and Mike. I needed a good laugh today! Maybe now I can go get some work done.

Always nice to see my girls' smiling faces on someone else's TR.

Think I might do one with an abridged October TR and then roll it into one for HHI. Not sure if I want to do October or not. I better get my a$$ in gear if I'm going to!

Great T-shirts and resort specific merch! That makes me very happy!

That's a great policy to have, except that I am certain it would put me over my weight limit. But this summer when we are driving - well, then all bets are off.

You must - it's a great area. I do think its more fun to stay there then just visit, but if you like it then you put the Epcot resorts on your bucket list for a future stay.

I was thinking the same thing. Like - is there a midget in that costume? I am a tad curious as to whose actually in there.

Thanks! I bought that shirt on clearance right before we left so I wasn't sure whether I really liked it or not. But I do like the way it looks in pictures, so thanks!

He is clearly a playah, but I have decided to overlook that small fault.

Welcome Back!!!!! Hope you had a wonderful time. I know you loved Charleston, but I'm dying to know what you thought about HHI.

I toyed with an add-on at BWI before I ever stayed there and I regret that I didn't follow up on it more activity before I purchased VWL. It's an awesome resort. You MUST stay there. I have a feeling you will love it.

You definitely should. I really want to read about both of your trips, but specifically the HHI trip!

Shopping makes us all very happy. Even window shopping is fun at Disney.

Yay! I'm officially all caught up

I noticed that you're going to HHI. My DH really wants to go there next Summer (since there was no availability this Summer) but what is there to do for a non-golfer (aka me)?

I love all the artistic shots you got of Gaston's fountain. Very nice!

Yes, Mike is definitely trying to cop a feel it looks like!

Ooh I can't wait to see what your view is like!

HHI is amazing. I am used to the midatlantic beaches and the beaches in Florida. HHI is home to the most amazing Spanish Moss on all the trees. The beach itself is very, very hard packed and you can easily ride bikes on it. The island has a very, very upscale feel because of very strict regulations on building and signage. The landscaping is impeccable.

HHI has the greatest tide fluctuations along the entire east coast except for the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia.

HHI is 45 minutes from Savannah - which is an absolutely amazing city. Even more beautiful is Charleston - which is about 1 1/2 to 2 hours away. Definitely both cities are day trip worthy. There is a lot of history in both cities. Wonderful carriage rides and historic house tours.

The resort itself has plenty of activities including a marsh walks, bird walk, and kayaking - which is super easy and fun. The beach house is about 1.5 miles away. There are activities scheduled all day long every day of the week.

There a ton of great places to eat.

Should I go on?

Another DISer said to me before I went "Disney's HHI is a special place" and that about sums it up. I have a lot of pictures from my last trip there in the TR below called "Why Not Queue Up Another Disney Trip?"
