Shae is so cute in the boneyard pics, and I love the Goofy hat on Tyson.

Don't apologize for liking the W/D in the villa. Every Mom needs the basics!
I LOVE Moderate resorts as well. Whenever we take a trip that is not on DVC points, we always try to get into one of those! But, I agree.. I just love WDW, so I'll find the good in wherever I stay!

I do love the Flatbread Chicken Sandwich though!

BCV.....LOVE that resort! I'm hoping you had a great time there as well!
It was a terrible shock, let me tell you!
We adore BCV... we try to stay there whenever we possibly can. Just LOVE walking home from Epcot after Illuminations and a slow stroll around WS!

I love BCV for that exact same reason. My cousins are staying at BLT this February so no BCV for me in 2010..... They did book me 4 nights at BWV for my birthday/Christmas present.....

Wait... so are YOU staying at BLT?!?! I need to get over to your PTR and get caught up!

Unfortunately, no. Our friend Kim and her boyfriend will be staying with my cousin Wendy at BLT. It would've been nice, but I'm not losing sleep over it.

I have stayed at the BWV 3 times...love it, but I think BCV is my favorite DVC resort so far out of the 4 we've stayed at-VWL, SSR, BCV and BWV.

well it really was not that bad, you put lettuce on a burger and can put cheese sauce on it as well, so just take everything away except the lettuce and cheese.

All caught up! Love the pic of Shae and Cindy waving to her, that is so precious!

We had never gone to the boneyard, looks like a fun spot for the kids.

Great room too, very nice!

Glad you're caught up. See, I'm purposely going REALLY slow so that everyone can keep up with me!

The boneyard is really great, but especially when it's not crowded or hot! Which is rare at DW, no?

Hi from another band geek!

I haven't gone through and read everything yet, but the title caught my eye and I thought "hey, I didn't write that..."

My wife and I were both members of the LSU Tiger Marching Band. Band stuff has calmed down for both of us more recently, especially since we moved to Houston, but the spirit lives on.

In high school, our marching band took trips every other year to WDW, and that's probably how my Disney obsession started.

Just wanted to say hi!

Sooze,

I thought I would stop lurking and post a comment.

Great start to your report!

I agree with you about Spectro Magic and the masked guys on balls. That was toooo freaky! I was so glad when they took those off.

Beach Club looks fabulous. I have never stayed in the villas but they are comparable in size to the vacation club where we own. I keep trying to talk DH into DVC but no luck. He is agreeing to one trip every year so I guess I should not push it with him!

Looking forward to your next update!

Erika

So, one of the benefits of being a Band Geek is that you have many friends with jobs in the arts... performers, musicians, dancers, actors and actresses.. and fortunately, Disney employs many of these kinds of people. So the odds of us knowing someone that works in Disney as an entertainer are pretty darned good.

Case in point... Dean had a former band student (she was a dancer in the marching band) who now works in Disney as a character. SNOW WHITE to be exact!! (She also plays Ariel in Spectromagic!) Dean was in contact with her, and we planned a time to meet her (as Snow) in Germany. Today was the day!!

We moseyed on over to Epcot and waited patiently at the little spot in Germany where our princess would soon be standing. We were extra excited because this would be Shae's first interaction with one!!

Here she is saying "Two more minutes" (til Snow arrives!)


Here is Abby with Snow White. We let her go first, since she was a friend of THEIRS, not ours! (well, yet, anyway!)


Shaelyn finally got to talk to her! You can see Shae holding her Snow White doll. Snow White appreciated that!


And here is Snow signing Shae's book. She wrote a message to her.. which made us feel extra special!


Now, check out these two beauties!! Aren't they gorgeous?!


Here is SW showing Shae how to hold her hands like a


And a family shot. I have got to learn how to hold my kid without looking so awkward... or, wait... maybe I could just let her stand on her own two legs?!


What's that you ask? Where did Tyson go!? Oh my... he was in full-blown "I'm-too-cool-to-stand-next-to-a-princess" mode. I was disappointed, but I didn't push it. Besides, I think he was acting that way because Abby was there.

Shae and I spent the rest of the night on our own. The big kids all enjoyed the big kid Epcot stuff. Shae and I found ourselves back at..... Nemo..... But I got some cute pictures, so that's ok! Enjoy!




Do fish really have teeth?


Just keep swimming!


Our day came to an end quickly. We were bound and determined to make it to DHS at rope drop so we could FINALLY ride Toy Story Mania! Who knew that even making it there at rope drop would STILL require us to WAIT... a LONG time.... to ride it!
