Great first full day so far! I am so glad I don't drink coffee after reading everyone's TR's and comments on the WDW coffee!!! LOL We have been there several times and DH always drinks coffee everyday. He doesn't complain???? Maybe his own that he makes at home is that bad that Disney's coffee doesn't bother him!
Can't believe you walked on Soarin'! Amazing!
I'm glad the walk over to the BC is short and easy. We have never done it before, but plan on it during our trip in December. I love the Cape May Cafe breakfast! The characters really are great and the food is also! Cute pix!
Sorry your stay did not work out, but something tells me you will be staying there someday!!! I don't think you are going to give up until you get to!

We've done the dinner at Cape May, but not the breakfast. Glad you enjoyed it! We love, love, love the Beach Club!!! We loved it even more than the Poly. Shhhh, don't tell anyone!

You mean like what I was trying to do? In actuality it would have cost us more to stay on points and keep out Pop reservation for that one night than it would have to stay on points and add the DDP.

My math says: $82 a night for Pop plus about aother $60 a night to add the DxDP. So roughly $142. My cost for staying on points and paying for the DxDP would have been about $120, so I would definately not be getting the better end of the deal for that one night.

DH is not a coffee connoisseur, I take it! Seriously, its not the greatest coffee but it serves the purpose!

Walk - on soarin....I wonder if that will ever happen again?

The walk over to BC is nice and easy. Do you have breakfast planned there??? It really is a great place to hang with the characters.

I got over my disappointment pretty quickly. And....yes....I WILL get there on my quest to stay at every DVC resort!

If you liked dinner you will probably also like breakfast! It's so bright and airy in there. Perfect for a morning meal!

Is that bad to love the beach club more than the Poly????? (I know there are a lot of Poly lovers on this board). Poly is cool, but I would pick the beach club first, too!

I would love to stay at the Poly some day, but gosh I love the Beach Club. It would take some extraordinary circumstances to get me over there now that we stay on points. Like buy 1 get 4 free!

Happy Monday Everyone.....

I regret not getting a chance to update last night. I tried to around 10pm but I started nodding off before my computer completly booted up. Not a good sign, so I decided not to bother.

I will try REALLY hard to update tonight. I probably could write it at work, but its Epcot and what's Epcot without pictures????? And I DID get that flash photo of the wall opposite the caveman in spaceship earth, so I know what's there now. I will give you advanced notice before I post that picture in case you want to be surprised for your next trip!

You seem to be smiling in a lot more pix this trip!

I am singing at a memorial mass this evening, but I am still hoping to get an update in when I get. The former bishop of wilmington, DE and the Eastern Shore of Md passed away last week. He was a patient of mine last spring and I really liked him. Seriously one of the most genuine people I have ever met. Truely humble.

It was a bit of a bummer, but what can you do? You can never be down to long in Disney!

I hope I continue to smile more. Honestly, I haven't looked at all of my pictures that closely, so we'll see!

Oh LL, I really hope I can get around to posting it. I will try really hard. Hopefully everything will be quiet at the home front when I get home from the memorial mass.

Continued next post (work computer alert - its acting up)

Really? Then I guess I was lucky to get it! Now I hope I can find it. I took so many pictures, but I'm pretty sure its in the group that I downloaded to photobucket!

Looking forward to your SE picture too!
I didn't know about the overbooking either
WL looks like an amazing place to stay too...I have a desire to stay at all of them also but I have been stuck in the AKV rut!! I think I saw that you are going next May 2-7th? Those are my dates too!! Haven't been in May yet so it will be my first F&G
