I can't believe I'm saying it but I think I like DVC more than CL. It was so nice to wash all of our clothes and do a little light cooking. Also, the space just can't be beat. The 1 bedroom is HUGE and beautiful!

I'm glad I booked std though. I just haven't seen enough animals on the savannah to justify the extra cost. Though we have enjoyed going to all to viewing areas to check it out. We did see some zebras and giraffes once for a few minutes, but other than that not a whole lot of action. Maybe we are just hitting the wrong times?

Will check back in from home over the weekend.

Sue - you are so close! Glad your first leg of your trip has gone well

Later!
I don't think you can beat the space of a 1BR and with the laundry and all too right there! :-)

I think the problem with seeing animals is the heat .... I know we see many more in the cooler fall weather. For my upcoming trip I have standard view booked in Jambo. I'm really hoping I get one of the view studios with a pool view. I'm so glad that your family is enjoying your pool time .... I seem to remember really talking it up to you!

I would love to try the villas there. We were there in August 2004 and saw lots of animals early morning(6-7am) and evening. However for price I guess the std seems like a good idea.

I am amazed at BLt how much laundry I do


So easy and more fun than at home.

Same with snacks. I like to use every plate and cup and pitcher for no reason except whimsy

Extra bath at kidani I would prefer. I have "sitters" in my family

Glad having a good time! Just got home and hubby fetching Chinese takeout

I-heart : glad you are having fun! Sounds like a nice ending for your trip

Very Happy to hear your at one of my favorite places AKL One Day I want to stay there again .

I was there end of January and the animals seemed pretty active maybe it was the cooler temps. Of course I had a Std room that faced the front of the resort so I had to grab my camera and take a hike to see the animals.



Today was not one of my better days I woke up not feeling so great too many gasy foods last night

Then My phone died I pick it up and Black screen so I am thinking it needs charged.... Nope nothing I do the troubleshoot and try reset still nothing

Try calling Ddil from my iPad but she MSG me on FB saying she at work and can't answer her phone

So I MSG her on FB and ask her to call Bob which she des, he comes over we go to the AT&T store only to have the clerk tell me after looking up my acct. that my phone is still under warranty so I have to go to the Apple store

It is now lunch time we decide to eat went to TGIF Fridays, haven't been there in over 10+ years (bad Expierence)
Good News Today's lunch was Great!

Plan to hit the apple store tomorrow as they are all in Malls 1 hour away.
I can not believe there are only 3 Apple stores nearby, New Haven, Danbury, and Farmington

I really hope it is an easy fix, like just give me a new phone

So incredibly behind, but I have been trying to read..just hate posting from my phone....

HAD to rescue the thread from page 2!!!

TWO Pas updates....

Our April trip will now be at POR Royal rooms

I took the new job!! More Disney money, and I go for my physical Tuesday. The manager wants me on board ASAP to train. My official start date is September 16th..but I will be training next week most likely. Brian doesn't believe he will see me more. My thoughts are, I will start the new place, and if it isn't what they say..I haven't left my old job so there's no harm in trying. All "my boys" from my transport job are behind me 100% so I have a lot of support!!! It will be awesome to actually be awake some days!!!

Sheila and Christine for the RC angel boys!

Sue Not a bad promise to break..shopping rocks

iheart AKL had so many viewing spots, Savannah view or not it is amazing resort!!!

miss Miss M will be fine, our kiddos start Sept. 6..backpacks packed and ready to go I am gonna miss everyone being home, but they are driving each other (and my DH) insane

Mama and TrishaYou are both making CBR look very promising..and I never thought I'd want to go back there

Krystal When do you start the new position?

Iheart: I hope your trip continued to get better! I am glad the BC staff made your crew feel special! Loved it there.

Pas: I don't know if I could stomach $1100 a night either, but CSR sounds good too! The thread about bringing a blow up mattress has me thinking naughty thoughts about staying at CSR! I don't think I could cheat Disney though, bad karma!

SueM: Wow you are right, 9 days has flown by! Can't wait to hear your updates from WDW! How is your knee holding up?

Amanda: We are going the same time in November!

Miss: Sorry to hear Miss M doesn't have any BFF's in her class. That is hard. Hopefully she will pal up with someone quickly! She is such a cute munchkin. Kiddos here don't go back until Sept 3, and they find out their teachers on Aug 30. We are counting down the days.

Melissa: Thanks for checking for me! You are the bestest!

JanetB: Hope the Disney blues goes away soon, I hate that about WDW vacations. It can be pretty depressing!

Christine: So you look after your DGD full time? What a great Nana you are! That must be a huge help. Sorry a trip to WDW did not work out for you all!

Trish: Wow....11th grade? I am sure time must fly. I still can't believe I have DD's in 4th, 2nd and SK!

DH is home, I will check back later ladies!

JEn
Just checked into Pop for our first night! Went to TL today, got there around noon, and waits weren't bad at all. Crush n Gusher was posted 15 min. I took the elevator up after getting our tube. Then I told daughter to pick 2 slides, my knee won't take any more then that. So we did 1 of the Storm Slide and Keelhaul Slide. Then wave pool, and a go around lazy river, my fav part!!
Have to return car rental early tomorrow morning. So did grocery shop and dropped it off with Bell Service at YC yo hold till our check in on 20th. Checking into GF tomorrow. Daughter still doesn't know! Haha

When we stayed at AKL we went over to Kidani to look around, and remember that kids splash area looked amazing!

Yay! Hi Jeanette, I thought I heard somebody say my name! no, I could never do it. I love it there too much and wouldn't want to taint that. If the AP discount is good, maybe we could look at 2 rooms there. DH loves the look of the pool and I think the kids would like it too. but I really do want boardwalk now too, and maybe it will be all decorated for Christmas?

Cruise is now paid in full. That was a big step for me. no turning back now!

Sue...what a great surprise tomorrow , can't wait to hear about it!

My good friends are checking into the YC tomorrow ! So excited for them and they are testing out the new FP+, hope it all goes well for them!

Jen

I hope the job goes well.

The DH and I made our FP+ selections before we were able to customize our Magic Bands. After we were customized the bands, we were given more FP+ options and were always given a bonus. The only days we have gone back and done were the MK days. The only thing the DH hated about the bonus was for each MK day, the only bonus we were given were for the new Little Mermaid ride.

Only 20 days until we start our vacation, 21 days until we spend the night at the Swan, and 22 days until we check into the AKL. I'm just looking forward to just even walking into the AKL for the first time.

We are always up late. If I get in bed by midnight, that's early for me. Then when I get to bed, I'm usually playing Diamond Dash and Solitaire until 2 or 3. I'm in US Central time zone, so it's about 11:08 my time as I'm typing this.

I know!! Even my DH is getting excited about the trip. With the FP+, this is the first time we have ever talked about park strats. Normally, we just hit the park I have scheduled that day, and do the park all willy-nilly and however we feel at that moment. It's been kind of neat making a plan of attack. Someone on the September FB thread said that on their 21st day out, their MDE said their Magic Bands were being shipped. Well tomorrow is our 21st day, so I can't wait to see if the status changes to being shipped. Although with it being a Sunday, it may not change until Monday. I keep going to the site to look at our bands. I was even able to add our MNSSHP tickets to them. I'm still going to bring them with us, and wrote our names on the cards in Sharpee in case we need them. My DH has already told me that if we do get the bands before our trip, he is hiding them from me to keep me from wearing mine everyday until the trip.

Well I think I am going to lay down and watch some tv, or a movie, on the laptop. I made Le Cellier's mushroom risotto with pork chops tonight and I am way beyond full.

Yippee! Can't wait!
And congrats on your new job! How exciting.

Wookie we had the stew once at Mara, and there was 1 cube of meat in mine the lady at the table next to us had lots of meat so I took mine back. CM said she just uses a ladle, and didn't notice there wasn't meat in it. But it was good. We went again last year and they have nightly dinner specials that are as good as a TS IMO!

Woohoo for 20 more days!

update we picked up our magic bands at Pop. Went to TL, then after grocery shop we were too pooped to go to Epcot last night where we had FP+ booked. So we just had dinner at food court and called it a night! We were going to walk over to AoA too, best laid plans...... Getting up at 5:00 and the 3 hr drive took its toll, and here I am, up at 3:30am woke up for bathroom, and can't get back to sleep! But tomorrow ( or today) is DHS and get to test my FP+

update we picked up our magic bands at Pop. Went to TL, then after grocery shop we were too pooped to go to Epcot last night where we had FP+ booked. So we just had dinner at food court and called it a night! We were going to walk over to AoA too, best laid plans...... Getting up at 5:00 and the 3 hr drive took its toll, and here I am, up at 3:30am woke up for bathroom, and can't get back to sleep! But tomorrow ( or today) is DHS and get to test my FP+

Do you have the generic grey or were you able to pick your colors before hand?

My DH has decided that on our AK day, once we leave the park, we are going to DTD to see a movie. He's thinking about paying OOP for dinner at Planet Hollywood before catching a movie.

Mine still have another week until they go back, and they don't start until a Tuesday. Which I have always thought was odd. Even their last school district started on a Tuesday. Joey does have early morning football practice this next week. I have to drop him off at the school by 7 AM.

My boys will start school on Tuesday, August 27, go to school Tues-Fri. Then they have a three day weekend before their 2nd week of school. They go to school Tues-Thurs, and the we leave on Friday for WDW. We have decided to start the trip off right with breakfast at The Original Pancake House.
