I'm here and can't wait for my cameo.

Great room, we love Hyatts. And nice view sister!

Sean does look so happy at the beach.

Hi Ellen!!!! I am so excited for this TR! I mean, my old home town - San Francisco! Yosemite where I have never been! And DLR - maybe my favorite place on earth! Couldn't be better!

Love your SF view! And I think the hotel room looks just fine and very spacious, which is obviously pretty dang important with those big boys of yours. I am looking forward to what the concierge level service will mean at this particular hotel.

Can't wait for more!

Hello Ellen! I'm so excited to read about your trip to the West! Too bad my plans to see you there went by the wayside, but it will be fun to read all about it !

Your plans look great! I love the pics of the ground throughout your flight - it is amazing how vastly different the US regions can be!

I love the pic of all 3 boys at the beach! So fun to see Sean so happy there! Love the Regency club! I'm sure with two boys you made good use of ut!

If it is "5 o'clock somewhere," does that mean it can be 5 o'clock anywhere and all the time?

I'm just curious do you own at GCV? or did you get it at 7 months? If so how easy was it? I would love to do something similar next summer but we don't own at GCV.

I just love your trip reports. I see a lot of similaries in our family except your boys are just a bit older. It's because of your Aulani trip report I want to take my boys at that exact same age. They are 12 and 9 so I have a few years..

Oh- you could have a LOT of fun with your family in Yosemite- TONS of stairs to make them climb there! Every hike is straight up both ways, lol!

I am SO excited to go on the Fantasy! We are going to have a blast- especially our day in SXM!

Yes- it was WONDERFUL- and you need to get YOUR butt out to CA, missy!

So great of Sean, Ellen. Makes me happy to see him thrilled! Why do think he was so content and happy? I'm curious. The laid back environment?

He just really likes the beach down there- it is different than the Atlantic Ocean- the water is VERY warm (which is what he loves), there are small waves but not huge ones, and he can go out forever in the gulf, it doesn't drop off like the Atlantic sometimes in NJ, and he also had the pools and hot tubs right there. we are going again next year and staying in the same place- the flight COMPLETELY sucks (through Houston with a 2-3 hour layover!!!!!!) but once you are there it is so nice for him.

And the one of the boys - SIGHING - just lovely. Ellen, I'm emotional sitting here taking it in. It's just nice to see.

Thanks Darlin'!

Can't wait to hear about all of it. Especially San Francisco. My niece goes to university there. I've been to California and DL but never San Francisco - CAN'T WAIT.
AGAIN- get your butt out there!!

Hurrah for another report! I so enjoy living vicariously through your travels, Ellen! Sounds like you had an amazing time. Club 33!! Can't wait to hear all about everything.

Absolutely love that photo of your boys on the beach. Kodak moment, for sure!

Hey Sista! It's a long time before we get to DL, so here's a little reminder of the fun we had in advance-





LOVE you AND your awesome kids- so hope we get to hang out again someday!

You lived in SF? What a wonderful place. When? For how long? What part did you live in?

Love your SF view! And I think the hotel room looks just fine and very spacious, which is obviously pretty dang important with those big boys of yours. I am looking forward to what the concierge level service will mean at this particular hotel.

You are right, size matters!! And concierge at this particular hotel means a LOT- it is thought of as one of Hyatt's BEST Regency Clubs- it was excellent.

Can't wait for more!

That would have been the icing on the friend cake if I could have met you, too, Tammie!

Your plans look great! I love the pics of the ground throughout your flight - it is amazing how vastly different the US regions can be!

It really was great- I enjoyed it immensely. I kept pointing it out to the kids- they were pretty good about looking out the window and feigning impassive interest!

I love the pic of all 3 boys at the beach! So fun to see Sean so happy there! Love the Regency club! I'm sure with two boys you made good use of ut!
Thanks- it was really hard to take that pic (and the 500 others I tried to take) because they just would not go where I wanted them to- it was kind of like Sean would go somewhere, and they would follow- but the water should have been behind them, not all those icky condos!

And the BEST regency Club EVARRRRRR!!!!

No- we own AKV, BCV & BWV. I was able to book at 7 months. It was not a problem- I think part of that was due to us going at the end of the summer- but I stalked it online prior to that to see how availability was, and I could nearly always find something- definitely not during D23, tho- it is a GORGEOUS resort, BTW.....

I just love your trip reports. I see a lot of similaries in our family except your boys are just a bit older. It's because of your Aulani trip report I want to take my boys at that exact same age. They are 12 and 9 so I have a few years..
Awww thanks! I love that I could help you go out there and have some fun! Hawaii was hands down my kids' favorite destination- to them, nothing will top it.

I can honestly say, for once I agree with them!

Hi Christine! Thanks so much for joining in!

And thanks for the compliment on the pic- I really can't say how happy we all were down at that beach because Sean was always so happy there. Just a great thing for all of us.
