We had 3 of these larger arrangements placed around the room with lots and lots of candles..sooo pretty!!

The chef from The Flying Fish was amazing!! He agreed to do the menu items from the restaurant, and then we arranged to have it served in the cottage. He even came to visit them in the middle of the meal!

The Bride-to Be had NO idea we were there at all until after the actual engagement. She was so excited that we all ended up celebrating at Jelly Rolls until 2am! The next night we surprised the couple with an Illuminations Dessert Party..followed by another night of more celebrating at Jelly Rolls! Needless to say, I am exhausted! But it was worth every minute of it!
Now I just need to find a reason to do all this all over again!
Seriously, you are the best sister ever! They are a lucky couple to have you in their lives!

Brier Rose... Thanks for sharing the pictures of the engagement room. The cakes look delish and the flowers so beautiful.

Congratulations on a job well done! She must have been amazed by the whole set up.

Thanks so much, to all of you!! You're all so sweet!

We just had the best time ever, and the awesome people we worked with truly made it easy!

I was just so happy to be able to help my brother. He's been sooo very busy with finishing up college this semester, and all the 1000 things he had to do. He would come up with ideas, and I'd just get them worked out for him..team effort! haha But he really is my "baby" brother..15 years difference between us, and I'm just so proud of him, and the man he's become. He is not just a great brother, but a wonderful person.

Plus..I can't tell y'all how excited I am to be getting a new sister that loves Disney as much as we do!


.....and YES the cakes were omg AmAzInG!! The one I got to taste was chocolate cake with Bailey's filling and Buttercream frosting..wow..I wish I had some right now!

Brier Rose I'm loving those pics!!!!

I'm jealous of everyone going shortly. I have 78 days to go & that might as well be 378 or 578...seems like forever & a day!

If anyone has any tips to beat the heat please share. We've never gone in August & I HATE heat & humidity. We won't be in parks during the daytime, and will dress light & drink lots of water- any other good tips?

I also have 78 days left!!!
It's hotter than heck!!!!!!!!! Go to the parks early, nap or pool later, lot's of tank tops, etc, you will survive LOL. I love the mornings in August, it's so wonderfully warm. Evenings are a bit stuffy, but I don't care, I'd rather be there. For sure though you still need a sweatshirt for dinner, because they crank the A/C!

I keep a damp towel around my neck when it's hot outside. It really helps keep you cool, and when it dries out, you can just rewet it in a bathroom or water fountain. If you really want to get fancy, there's a product called the Chilly Pad that is made of fabric that keeps the water longer, so the cloth lasts for hours before it dries.

Welcome back

So true about topping the engagement - when do we help start planning the Disney wedding, Brier Rose?

I have to ask why you won't be in the parks during the day - not even to eat? In that case, the parks at night are wonderful in August. Are you just doing PM EMH? Without the sun out it's fabulous and usually seems to rain less. The daytime is very humid with bouts of rain. But, when it rains, the lines are much shorter and it cools off.

Welcome and that's great advice.

There are refrigerators at BWI and the one we had worked really well. I had some yogurt on the top shelf and the froze (which was fine with me). So, you might need to fiddle with where you put your water. If you want it to freeze, take a little out so they don't explode and put them on the top shelf.

We've gone in August the last few years and it is hot, but completely manageable as long as you don't push yourself too much. I can't remember if you planned any waterpark days, but those are so much fun in August. Also, at the parks there are lots of indoor attractions where you can catch A/C. As someone else noted, though, the A/C can be quite cold so if you're like me, take along a sweater. Finally, there are often CMs out and about spraying kids with water mist. If you don't mind that, make yourself a target for the mist -- it's quite refreshing.

Thanks Kook! I totally get the love!!! The girls fun T-shirts say "Keep Calm and Smash On" so that's what we're doing until next Friday when the state tournament starts.

How far is the walk to Boardwalk Bakery and would it be on the way to Epcot?

The Bakery is just about right outside the door of the hotel and yes, it's on the way to Epcot.

When you walk down the stairs from the lobby, you make a right at Flying Fish. You pass Seashore Sweets', Kouzzina and the pizza Window before hitting the bakery. And yes, it is on the other way to EPCOT.
