Life is what happens in between trips to WDW
Those "flying cookies" flying through space can be seen
I'm hoping that the little guy likes them!

It is definately more low-key than some of the other resorts! We absolutely fell in love with the place!

Haha, yes Georgia IS long! Well I'm sure Georgia weather is better than weather in IL during the winter so I'll give you that advantage!

It is funny! Glad you liked the pic! We were walking from the car into the mall and I said 'Hey! Let's take a pic in front of the sign!' Since we eat there every year!

Yep, we're DVC. We usually stay at the villas at WL but after staying at OKW it's surprising how much bigger OKW rooms are! We fell love in with the place! I'm glad you like my hair! It's already starting to get long again! Aw..I'm glad you like my Day 1 shirt!

Driving under that sign is a wonderful feeling, but when you spot that first Disney bus, you know for sure you have arrived!!! You know you'll be riding on one of them yourself just as soon as you can get checked in!

That's great that your bus stop was right there. Old Key West is so pretty! Definitely it feels like a vacation spot! Just seeing those pictures makes me long for warm days. It is cold here!

Next time you come through Nashville, let us know. Anyone in the area (there are several of us - Erica, Sarilas, and I know there are more) could come down and meet you at the hippo! You know exactly where that is, right?

We may have to have a Dis meet here sometime soon- I'd love to meet up with all of you that live nearby!

I'm still a newbie to town; I've only been here about 4 years!

I love spotting the 1st Disney bus! It's so exciting. OKW is gorgeous! No...I'm sorry I don't know where the hippo is. Forgive me?

And to everyone:

Merry Christmas!!

The hippo is in the water right to the right of the entrance to RainForest Cafe. He grunts and raises his head. Brooklynn is just now realizing he's not real. She used to keep her distance, but she's getting a little braver.

Here's me when I was little and what started my love for WDW..( NO LAUGHING!)




No laughing here! Those moments as a child at WDW, maybe meeting a character or seeing the castle for the first time, are precious and stay with you for the rest of your life.

Hill! I'm so glad you're here now! I guess we'll both be doing a TR at the same time! When I first found out we were staying at OKW, I was nervous and sad because you know I love staying at the WLV. But after staying at OKW, we wish we would've stayed there sooner! We can still go visit WL, which you'll see that we did later in my TR!

The Jim Shore statues I saw on Main Street and really wanted!:

Joining in on your report! I love your old pictures. It's so much fun looking at pictures of past Disney trips. And your Precious Moments statues are adorable...I have a couple of them myself. My sister got that Tink one for graduation this year!
