I stayed at Kidani.... and I swear it was 2000 steps from the lobby to our room!
But! Since you are only going from the elevator... I will officially guess 36. I know our room was VERY close to an elevator... but without a car...it did us no good at all LOL!!

Hi Paula, let's make this clear.....
I'm talking about the main elevator, the lobby elevator...
Isn't this thread just crazy?
Woot! I'm having a great time! I can't wait to award the prize! It just needs to arrive in one of the boxes I shipped home....
I have you down for 36 steps but if you want to change that guess based on the information I just gave you feel free!

I pretty much rule out any other place for 2011 other than BC or AKV... although going back to the WL is tempting. I guess getting my hopes up is crazy too, but since I had such great luck at the 7 month window this time I won't ever not feel that it is worth a try.

Did you miss the CS? We would for sure eat breakfast in room. I am interested too in what Brooke had to say since she was at AKV too over the holidays.
We really didn't miss the counter service, and we could have hopped a bus over to Jambo to eat at Mara anytime.
Marc said that a couple of the parks did seem a little far to him but he couldn't recall which ones the were and he never minds the rides anyway.
It's me that complains....
We had great service at the resorts and the parks. Much better than we have had at Saratoga.
Don't feel like you are going to get stuck staying there. I think you will enjoy it very much.
I know how your parents feel though, staying at Beach Club is so convenient love the IG and the boat to DHS....
Not crazy about the bus service to Beach Club though....lots of stops.
Swan, Dolphin, Yacht Club, yada, yada, yada.....
I guess nothing is perfect on all counts.

[QUOTE=wigdoutdismom;34817131]Oh wow, you are almost neighbors!
This is not the normal trip for us with everyone including a baby along....
There were crowds...

With the right touring plan you can get it all done!

/QUOTE]

We are neighbors! My DH works at Northrup Grumman right there in NN! My dad lives in Newport News as well. You know, it's a small world after all...

Seriously, I totally agree with Anita. With the right touring plan, you can get it all done no problem. At least I am counting on that for spring break

We were there last year for our spring break (mid March) and it was super crowded but the weather was awesome!
We got everything done!
Took advantage of fast passes, made sure we got the next one as soon as we could and even stock piled them.
Got to the parks early.
Avoided morning EMH parks....
When are your dates?

Yes, we have taken some pictures of him. We named him Hunny Pot! What lover he is!
I'll get them up loaded and post them!
I feel like Jackie with this big dog laying around the house!

I need to know more about this man...
Is he the Oprah guy?
No, he's not the Oprah guy. He was a very funny science fiction writer. He died in 2001. Here's a wiki link with information about him:

Here's our Hunny Pot!



Can you tell how large he is?
EEEEK, I need some serious help with that coffee table!





I think he likes wearing those ears!

Awwww, Hunny Pot is too cute!!

I'm interested to see who makes the cut for next year's Christmas. Remember, I'm always available for adoption.
