118 days until we are at Vero in a Deluxe Villa and then on to Saratoga Springs and Animal Kingdom Lodge. It will very likely change.

**, you ladies have been chatty today, I'm going to attempt them impossible (catching up on this thread ).
Jennyjinx - Your DH is too adorable!! I'm glad he had such a good time.

Jennyjinx - not family vote on this one. The DH is set on staying at the Swan that night. Although, after his idea to take him, our 2 DSs, his father, and his grandfather to the Texas Rangers game this Sunday we may just end up at a cheap offsite hotel that night.

Miss - I am loving all the AKL pictures!! I actually have a girl that I grew up with that is staying at the AKL with her family right now and then another friend at Bonnett Creek. The one at Bonnett Creek says it's way better than her stay at Port Orleans.

Koh - I'm hoping for low crowds when we are there in September. This will be our first time to go in that month. I'm glad your TA got everything moved.

SueM - I have the same problem. I usually always end up buying pints of Ben & Jerry's and then I never eat mine because I forget about it. Plus, I can't eat an entire pint of ice cream in one sitting. It takes me like 3 or 4 times. Well unless I'm really ticked off and then I can eat it all at once.

Miss - I love giraffes!! Thanks for the pictures.

Mousemommy1 - Don't go CL, spend the money you would have spent on CL doing a tour, treating yourself to a spa treatment, or one of the cruises. oooooo, or a dinner at V&A's.

MAGIC - I would rather do the AKL too, so we don't have to pack up and move resorts the next morning. It wouldn't be as bad if the Swan would move our luggage for us.

Mousemommy1 - Ugh, I'm so sorry. That stinks!! Hopefully it won't be an expensive fix. We actually just found a huge ant mound in the house. They found it when they took out the bathtub unit in the middle bathroom (that shares a wall with the bathroom for our room). It's under and around the shower unit in our bathroom.

Oh and our dates changed just a little. We added a day to the beginning of the trip. Surprisingly it was the DH's idea, because he wants more time at the MK after I showed him my "must do at the MK" list. Our new dates are 9/8 -9/14/13, and we're still at the AKL PV.

Luckily, nothing new going on here. I have to go to school in a few hours, but nothing has happened today that has made me want to pull my hair out. Oh and if y'all have a Kindle, today the book Keys to the Kingdom is free on Amazon for it. Someone in the September FB group posted about it, and I already have my copy.

Koh1977 - The place is in St. Charles. I hear it's been updated since I was there, but I loved the non-updated version.

My family is from Joliet - nearly all of them. Some elderly aunts still live in Chicago. I'm usually out there once a year to see my cousins. We are very long term NJ transplants!

Sweet!! Maybe we'll run into each other.

The DH and I were talking about our trip when he called as he was driving to his next appt. He had me make an ADR for Ragland Road at 4:15 PM on the day we check into the AKL. He is thinking that instead of trying to get an early ADR, we could just hang out at the resort and swim for a couple of hours. Before I go ask on the AK thread, do y'all know if there is a place we could change into our swim suits at the pool, if our room isn't ready? Also, how long do we need to allow for travel to DtD, whether it be by Disney bus or by our minivan? His plan is to get to the AKL, check in, swim for a couple of hours, eat at Ragland Road, and then go to the MK for PM EMH.

There is a place to change near the pool! You'll probably find us at the pool most afternoons!
