That was a really great report!! Loved all of your pictures and I got some good ideas from you too....leaving later in the day on the dreaded departure day and the pontoon boat sounded like fun too!
You are a great storyteller! Thanks for sharing!

What a great trip report! I don't normally read them, but I got sucked in and had to read the whole thing! Great pics and great descriptions too. We're staying at Kidani in Nov and can't wait. Trip reports like yours make me want to be there right now!

Oh yeah - and Happy Anniversary!

Great report. It is easily one of the best I have seen.

Your last bit of advice is outstanding. I see far to many people that way overplan. They walk around the parks with a notebook looking more at their watch than anything else. When something doesn't go according to thier plan their trip is ruined.

The best vacations at WDW are those were we have a general idea of things we want to do but not a schedule and adjust to the moment.

Overplanning = Overstress

Thanks for the wonderful report I can't wait for our first trip to AKV. We're headed to Kidani in Nov and the first week will be 6 adults, then we'll have 22 (12 adults, 6 children, pretty good ratio) on a 4 night cruise, then it's back to WDW with 8 adults & 1 DGS for 2 nights in the THV. Even with a group this size I don't like to over plan. I may set up one or two dinners otherwise they're on their own. Of course, my grown kids want one day at Universal , so I'll keep DGS at WDW with me.

Wonderful!

Thanks so much for the great report. My hubby and I have started going by ourselves and we are having more fun than ever. I can't wait to go again just the two of us!
Congrats again on your anniversary!

Thank you for a great trip report! I can not wait for our trip in June. My son reminded me today that our trip is less than a month away.

Your pictures really helped me make my decision to go to WDW next May for the Flower and Garden Festival. I went in May for 3 years in a row but decided to go to DL this year (which I loved), but I missed not seeing all the flowers etc in Epcot this year.

Wonderful report! I've been on Dis boards for only a month getting schooled on DVC. Just purchased at VGC and this is the first trip report I've read straight though. I thoroughly enjoyed it because it was easy to see myself have fun just like you. It's like when you read a good book and you become the main character! Thanks.

I'm jealous you're going to Disneyland. If you're anything like me when you step foot in that park you will feel like you are "home". It's such a wonderful and beautiful park. So much smaller than the Magic Kingdom, but that is one of its charms.

You sure that black eye wasn't just an unfortunate by-product of too much nudge nudge wink wink???

Have really enjoyed reading your report. Only 39 more days before we head out on our trip and much anticipated stay at Kidani. We are getting really pumped!!! Reading your TR has really helped pass the time. So glad you had such a great time. We are looking forward to a more relaxed trip this time around also (although the kids will be with us; but then that is the great thing about that Master bedroom.....nudge nudge wink wink )
