I left you all on page 63. Lunch was amazing and we said goodbye to Alison and Fran. They were heading to do a little or a lot of shopping. Sadee and I were going to watch the parade. I only have a few more photos to share of this wonderful and magical day as I'm only reporting on the Disney part.

My only character shot of the trip:



On our way back to the hotel:



I was totally on cloud 9 from lunch; full, and dazed. Another biggie crossed off the bucket list. Between this and Nantucket this past summer, my bucket list is shrinking.

Remember I told you about the desserts I took to-go? Well they made it home and were delicious as ever. I froze them once we got back to my friend's and then wrapped them and sealed them in true food freak fashion. They traveled well.

My beautiful mini eclairs:



The most amazing cookies ever, sprinkled with pixie dust:



And a ton of mints:



It was a birthday for the books. We left the park and headed to my friend's where we spent the next 2 days. We visited the beach and of course some food favorites.

Thanks for reading my birthday report and about my very special lunch. Turning 44 isn't so bad when it happens at 33 with a great meal and wonderful people!



I will continue with the WDW portion of this report shortly.



I am a big time chocolate eclair lover...the ones at Epcot in France are sooo delicious!! However, those sparkly cookies look delicious too! Yum!

It really is such a beautiful and peaceful resort. I know peaceful and Disney don't always go together but I think DVC and Disney in general does a phenominal job with making their resorts very calm.

The nightcaps and bread service totally hit the spot. I think the kids their MNSSHP candy, cut up veggies, and bagel bites.

She was very friendly and he did enjoy the attention. He always seems to garner a lot of attention. He is very polite when out and I think adults appreciate his manners and ability to converse. Don't get me wrong, he's a goofball just like other kids but really knows how to read his audience already. He held the door open for a group of women at the DLH during our cammando day and a CM saw him and complemented him. Very cool to get poitive feedback.

Its staying on the AKV must-do list for sure. It's cheap too which surpised me. Either that or I've been totally Disneyfized, like Fockerized but Disney style.

And having a couple chocolate martinis with the bread service seems like a win-win to me.
It was a win-win. Not enough to have ahngover but enough to sleep well.

I, too, love DVC and have no regrets about purchasing. I even bought my first resale contract before the prices dropped after the stock market crash and still no regrets. It was a great decision and took away all the pressure about how to score a Disney deal on a resort room or package. Best move ever.

When did you buy DVC? Where are your home resorts? It does take away the pressure on how to score a deal and I love that.

Wait.....Does JetBlue offer credits like Alaska? After you ticket, if the price goes down, they will give you a credit? We are flying JetBlue in June and I agree, the LGB airport is the best!!


Okay....back to reading about your Disney birthday......



Eta: Honestly, I should NOT post on threads before having my morning coffee AND trying to type on an iPad! I meant to say thanks for the LINK not the LINE to your trip report. And, definitely didn't intend to use the term POOPING but instead I was just POPPING over! Oh my.....
JetBlue does give credits. Love JetBlue. I've never flown Alaska. Southwest had a no fee change policy which is also very nice. I fly JetBlue first whenever possible.

Boma. I haven't got to that part of the trip but when we ate there we ended up in what we lovingly refer to as a Boma Coma. I need to copyright that.

That Club 33 looks fabulous!! What a fun way to spend your birthday!! And really cool to be able to enjoy it with others that know and appreciate the history!

Did you know when you were there that you would be heading back to DL with your family and that you would all get to go to Club 33 together for dinner?


I had no idea we'd be going back to Club 33. I received an email from someone I'd never met asking if we'd like to have dinner on Easter Sunday. Of course I said yes and the reservation was made. The sponsor wishes to remain anonymous but emailed me all of the reservation info and we were all set. It was such a generous and unexpected treat. Both dinner and lunch are out of this world. I'd go back to either in a second.

I love France's eclairs too and their Napoleans are to die for. Heavenly. The sparkly cookies were were very light with a hiny of lemon. They were incredible.

Nice update! I like the way you and Michael steal away for your night caps. If you saw the bread service on one of my reports, it was stolen from someone else's TR! I didn't have first hand experience at the bread service until this past January. I think I stole it from Brandi, but I had been dying to try it, and it did not disappoint!

I hope the rest of your stay was equally as magical!

Thanks to Brandi. Yours was the first report I remember seeing it on and knowing I had to try it.

Admittedly it took me many years but I finally realized and put into practice the fact that even at Disney, Michael and I need our time without the kids. It's so nice to touch base and relax together after the craziness, fun, and sweet chaos of a day at Disney.

It never occurred to me to ask for a warm Chocolate Martini, but it sounds utterly delicious. I also love the sound of the bread service.

It was! I think they made it with a hot chocolate base. I didn't ask but should have. It wasn't coffee or I would have been up all night. I'm very sensitive to caffeine.

The bread service was perfect and seriously like $9. That's the same as we'd pay here in Utah.

Playing serious catch up here but I loved seeing your photos from Club 33

It looks like you had a wonderful dinner at Sanaa. What a great idea to have a warm chocolate martini

Sanaa was great. We didn't do dinner that but did later in the trip. The food is fantastic. I could live at AKV no not see a Disney park and be perfectly happy.


Club 33 was great, thank you. It's fun sharing with other Disney lovers.

Was your Boma meal breakfast? We had a Boma coma when we ate supper there on our last trip.

Did you like it? We went to Boma for dinner and it was awesome. Good food, great vibe, and again being at AKL can't be beat. I'm really thinking about figuring out how to add an AKV day or two to the beginning of our cruise in January- no parks though. If we get our villa at the GCV for this December then we'll be out and even borrowed out of points.

Love the pillow with the chair!!!! Perfect. Also love your Sanaa nightcap, what a fun idea. We did that in the cruise but only once ever at WDW but it wasn't siting down (though strolling the ws is unwinding) but I love the idea of hitting a local spot after dumping the kids. And ooh we love the Sanaa bread service!

Our kids liked the night vision goggles too

i'm thinking we appreciate some of the same vacation qualities. Next time we all go at the same time, we should try to do a couple's only dinner.

The bread service is another best kept secret though I'm not sure how secret it is. It's actually a value.

Strolling around the WS sounds nice too. I think we'll do that if we ever stay at an Epcot resort. I love the resort night caps though because then all I have to do is haul by buzzed self back to the villa.

Weren't the goggles fun? I got a kick out of them.

You won't be disappointed. That was just the bread service. Wait until you see dinner. It was so good. Sanaa has a great relaxing yet unique atmosphere. The kids loved it too. It'll be a repeat every trip. Are you doing to DDP?

We are. I wouldn't mind just having the QS since it is free but dh really enjoys the TS so we are just paying the difference. He enjoys not having to worry about anything while we are there and I enjoy not listening to him complain how much everything is. It makes for much more peaceful vacation. I am going to order the bread service for sure.
