Heading to the Boardwalk

Ok- where was I? Oh! DS9 and I decided to walk over to BWV while the other 2 men drove over. I really, really love that Epcot resort area.















We were heading for the clown pool- very excited to try something new! I had a TM from Camster0607, we just missed each other! She was at Epcot. But we were going to hook up tonight, so I knew I'd see her then. The DSs couldn't wait to check out that Keister Koaster- it was a blast!!

DS9-



DS11-





They liked this slide MUCH better than the one at AKV- I hope the new pool there has a slide that's more thrilling for them!





I need to upload more photos- so if I have time I'll update tonight- otherwise...I'll see you when i get back from the USVI!!!

Seriously Ellen - I think I walked through the pool area that day. Probably walked right by you - which I'm thinking is a good thing: if I had seen you, we would have hung out by the pool, had a few drinks and then I never would have met up with my family at Epcot!

And it was such a gorgeous day, wasn't it?

The Boardwalk looks like sooooo much fun! We are planning to eat at the Flying Fish on our trip in May, so we'll get to visit the Boardwalk for the first time. I have to admit though....that clown slide creeps me out....I've got a thing about scary clowns! That being said, I think if I could try any of the Disney resorts, Boardwalk would be right near the top for me.

Looks like you guys had a great weather day! Perfect pool weather!

Ha!Ha! Alan - there is something creepy about that clown slide! You should see it at night!

Reminds of that Stephen King book "It"!

But on this cruise...well, Brent was the CD! I was OFF!!! All those decisions were off my plate AND someone tidied my room everyday and gave me chocolates on my pillow at night. We were told when and where we were eating, and it was awesome! Someone I trusted and really liked told my family what we would like to eat. All the planning for what to do was either arranged before I ever even saw the ship, or taken care of once we got on by someone else with oodles more knowledge than me. I just had to show up and start having a grand old time. I was totally pampered and spoiled"

I agree. No fights about where we're eating or trying to find the place, everything is right there for our enjoyment! Well put
EXACTLY!!! Happy times all around!

It is very, VERY hard to get past those blues- just have to have a little pity party for a bit, and then look for that sun to shine again, right?!

I agree about the clown. But my kids loved it when we stayed there. And we loved the resort. It is one of my favorites because it is between our two favorite parks, EPCOT and HS!

Oh...the tragedy! ( I don't mean about your family- I mean about us not hangin' by the pool all day laughing our butts off! ) And I never would have made it to CG.... and THAT would have been a BIG tragedy, because it was spectacular!

It was GORGEOUS that day- could not have made it better in any way (unless I had stayed on the Magic- OOPS! I thought I was recovered! Oh well...a brief relapse! ). It was my first time at BWV- but, I am sure, not my last! It is a wonderful place. Once we checked in, I could NOT get over my view- it was fantastic! But I will elaborate at another time- it 's 7 degrees here in NJ- but 85 in St John...so I think I'll pick........

Yes, yes, yes! And that lobby? The most beautiful of them all, IMHO!

Ok- everyone singalong...

See you in a few days-

Ellen, have a wonderful trip - Save up some sunshine and hurry back with pics! I think you can post pics here, since you are still doing your TR - I've seen others do that...

Oh, that is just creepy! I really don't like the looks of this pool! I do want to stay in this resort, just near the quiet pool. Oh, they probably don't have a bar, huh? Maybe if I have enough to drink, I'll learn to like the clown!
