Claire and I decided to explore the Beach Club a bit after everyone left. I wanted to get a few pictures and just check out the lobby.





















Another picture of Claire NOT looking at the camera.





Back to the Villas.



Another mermaid shot.







I just love Dollhouses.











I really loved this breezeway room





This is such a gorgeous picture.

Out to the Villa pool.





We then headed back to the room for Claire to put her swimsuit on. She was going to go swimming in Storm-along-Bay!

Who knew deciding where to swim was such a big deal? We walked down towards the Yacht Club and started there.





I would get settled in with my Kindle and she would decide to move again.



I think we moved like 3 or 4 times.











And then the announcement came. Everyone needs to get out of the pool now, it is closed!

What? I didn’t know this pool closed at 10 PM. I swore it was open till at least 11. Oh well, nothing we can do about it now. She did get a good 30 minutes of swimming time in at least.

We got her out and dried off and it was getting quite chilly out. On our way back to the room we saw some fireworks go off. I am guessing they were for a race because they came from behind Epcot and it was too late for them to be shooting anything off.






A quick shot of the boardwalk and we headed off to our room.



We got settled into bed once again. It had been a pretty full day for our sort of early night day. We had a lot of fun again, with a few headaches along the way.

We got to see Carey, John and Kadence once again today. Oh the people we see!
We went to Hollywood Studios today as well. We are learning to like that park more and enjoyed it more than I ever have in the past. I just wish I had a really LONG trip to explore each park more and take my good ole time enjoying it all.
Oh the places we go!

Jen, I'm still reading...just not posting much. I loved your last set of pictures at the Beach Club and the pool there. Can't wait to be there in a week.

Swimming at night while in Disney is the best! What a great ending to a super fun day! I hope you both slept well.

That is such a lovely resort. The interiors are just the look I love.

Claire sure is quite the not so little any more fish! Kids sure do have the bad habit of growing up. What great Mom & Claire you two had.

If you like doll houses you should see mine. I inherited from Bob's stepmother.

Great Photos!

You just capture everything perfectly, from the Beach Club decor to Claire swimming to the photo of the Beach Club-just love it. So, how warm was it, that Claire was swimming at night? She is really quite the swimmer, isn't she???

I think I love the exterior of the BC villas the best, and the inside of the actual BC resort the best. One thing is for sure, the artwork looks great at both places!

Yay for getting to swim in Stormalong Bay! I get wanting to move around a lot. This pool has so many cool areas to explore.

That Beach Club pool looks awesome. We're members at OKW, and have been able to get a room at Boardwalk, ONCE, but haven't been able to get one at Beach Club yet... It doesn't help that we only vacation during the same time as the majority with kids... haha One day. But we've had the Kitchen Sink and the kids have eye-balled the slides and lazy river!! :D One day we'll get a reservation there.

She loves swimming any time she can get it in. But night is always extra fun.

we did have a nice day. A nice mixture of family and just us. She is growing way too fast.
I have been working a dollhouse for years..like maybe 15? It's built and partially painted, but nothing inside is done. I actually stopped about a year ago because I needed skip to cut some things to size for me and forgot about getting back at it. I will have to go pull out my directions and have him cut those so I can move on. I also need to finish painting the window trim and put them in. I was at one time going to buy an expansion kit for it, but I gave up on that idea. I also thought about putting shingles on it, but again, that sounds like too much work.

It wasn't that warm. The pool was ok, but the outside air had started to chill down.

I agree, I like the outside of the villas, but I like the look of the BC for inside.
that pool is huge and I am glad Claire did get a chance to swim in it.

One day you will get it. I have heard it's really hard to get, especially summer months. We never made it to the slide. I guess we'll have to go back someday.

Thanks I dod to, but it took a lot of emails to get it. The seller said a certain amount of weeks and then it went and gone and then she stopped answering, or swore it was on it's way and then it never came. I finally told her I was filing a claim with my credit card company and it showed up.

He was great and in character.
Yeah I wasn't impressed with our replacement driver at all. If I had time I would've complained. i should've gotten his name.
