Are you talking about the CVS bag holding my nicotine gum or the bottle of tranquilizer juice?

Me with a blank stare and intense fear. OMG - she wants our family to be altogether. OMG - she's on a mission to put our family altogether. OMG. Please God help me.

I'm like - oh no that's not necessary AT ALL but thank you so much.

Obviously not getting the hint she works at the computer and with a smile of intense pride says, "I did it!" "Everyone is on the same floor - same building." "Two are connecting!!!!" "Isn't that great?"

Yes, that is SO great. Thank you so much.
Too funny. Know the feeling. Sometimes being next to each other is not good. That is unless you are trying to get on America’s Funniest Home Video. Or in your case Canada’s Funniest Home Video. Do Canadians do stupid stuff to get on TV? One time the in-laws came and I jokingly said at check in, “Don’t put them near us.” Seems they were sent to Bay Lake Towers and that was ten years before it was built. Worked for me though.

Checking in: AKA Home at last

I am walking around the Hilton after enjoying my breakfast when I decide it is time for the fun to begin. Pulled out the phone and dialed the child. “Ummm, Hello.” “Time to get up.” “But it’s only 9:30.” “Call you back in a few minutes.” “Daaaaaaaad.” This was the toughest part during the trip. It was like pulling teeth to get them up and ready in the morning.

Spent some more time walking around the resort (see previous picks) and back to the room to catch up on the news. Some begging, pleading and arguing (on both sides), and they were up and out the door a little before 11:00. Back to the van to reload everything and are off to Boardwalk. YEA!

6 is a WDW veteran and was telling me where to drive. Sweetie, I was here a couple of hours ago, I know where I am going. DD is a Disney trivia savant, we even won a contest on a cruise when she was seven and this became a bone of contention between DD and 6. 6 would spout out some trivia thing and DD would say, “Yea, everyone knows that but did you know…(some obscure Disney fact.)

Pulled up to the lobby area and waved down a bell services/valet guy. He actually got everything on one cart. Should have taken a picture. Entered the lobby and I heard a couple of oohs and aahs from some of the kids. Nice feel good start.



2 and 6


Parked the car in the lot and got a pretty close space. There has been a lot of debate over the new policy that charges DVC members for valet parking. Dumb idea but as long as people staying at the resort can get accessible parking spaces, I am OK with it. The problem is that anyone can park in the lot. I went back to the get something out of the van later and it did not look like a space could be found. Probably because everyone was at ESPN or walking to EPCOT. Not a good situation.

Meanwhile, they needed food and I needed to get the Tables in Wonderland card (hate that name) and turn in the kids’ $500 plus vouchers for real tickets. I headed over to EPCOT and they hit the bakery. After exchanging the vouchers and purchasing the TIW card I met them at the bakery. I had to go to the ticket booth to exchange the tickets and then Guest Services to get the TIW card. Didn’t make sense but what can you do. Bellies were being filled with not so healthy, but tasty food items.



What is she doing with the hair thing? Want some follicles with your éclair?


Still plenty of time before Tea so they decided to do the walk around the Boardwalk. Here are some pics the shutterbug took.

4
























3 and 5




Goofy




As you can see it was overcast. Really worried about the cruise, rain was predicted for later today and tonight.


Running out of picture space so more to come later. Up next: The Grand Floridian and tea.

Oh hurry up. Cannot you write any faster? The suspense is killing me. Just kidding. Enjoying the action. Which one is the shutterbug?

Love the way you have numbered them. I am surprised you did not name them after the Pooh characters. I have my students tell me which psychological disorder each of the Pooh characters have, Eeyore - mood disorder - unipolar - depressed, Pooh - addiction - honey....

The thing about these kids is they can have one disorder one minute and completely change the next minute. During any one day they would be Eeyore, then Pooh then Rabbit. Shutterbug was 3. They do not know it but they will forever be numbered in my mind. DD will ask if we can take so and so home and I will ask if she meant 2. No matter how old they get. “Dad, X got named to the Federal Bench.” “You mean 4 right.”

Typing away as fast as I can. I actually have to work today and tomorrow. Going through about 9 pages of foundation possibilities for an organization that helps kids with mental illness. Promise tea will be up later today or tomorrow. In the meantime, can you do me a favor and ask your daughter if she has the invite list for the Disney trip you are taking her this year. Remind her she needs to keep it under 20 kids. (I kill myself sometimes.)

Oh CJ you are mean. And you have a good memory.

Tea and a Grand Villa AKA Holy Moly

While they were wandering around, I took a few pics of my own
.
Here is THE ROOM (See the New Year’s TR to find out about THE ROOM). Will the Grand Villa beat it out for my affections? We shall see. Second floor right on the corner.


Great balcony.


They met me after the loop and while it was still early, we decided to head over to the Grand Floridian for their tea. The Magic Kingdom bus had just pulled up so we ran to get it. A recurring theme for them during the trip.

6, DD, 1 and 2.


On the monorail heading to the Grand Floridian


2, DD, 4, 5, 3.


Always have to take a pic of BLT. I have a montage of pictures starting when they destroyed the wing it replaced.


Sometime we will stay there.


The GF, more oohs and aahs. DD’s mom and I stayed here once but DD hasn’t. Her goal is to stay at every Disney resort. Go for it girl, just get a good job first. I am not paying for rooms anymore. DVC takes care of that.


Victoria and Albert’s. She has eaten there twice and loved it. Even she wasn’t dumb enough to suggest dinning here for this trip. Can’t wait until she takes me here for dinner and pays the bill. When that happens I will know that my work as a father was successful.




The Birdcage. For the last time, the numbers: 5, 6, 2, DD, 1, 4 and 3. Notice how 1 and 2 are next to her. This became a dominant theme through the weekend. Found out the birdcage does not hold 7 kids.


Not a bad looking place.






OK, here is where Disney Dining screwed me again. They had reservations for 2:00. We walk over to the tea area and no one is there. My fault, I thought tea started earlier. Went to the concierge desk and they confirmed that tea starts at 2:00. I go back and look on the reservation sheet, see our name but the time is listed as 3:30. That was the original time but I since changed it to 2:00. Hoping this wasn’t going to be a hassle (it wasn’t the hostess seated them after only a short wait). Meanwhile the kids went window shopping. I don’t think they bought anything but had fun anyway.


Shutterbug can’t take pictures that are straight it seems. Can’t complain though, she did a great job.




They sit down for tea and I am free of them at last. Debated Tambu Lounge at the Poly or back to the Boardwalk and ESPN. Decided on the Poly. They had tea.












A few Por Favors later I was at the Polynesian. Ordered the first martini of the trip. Delicious. The bartender and I do the small talk thing while the Georgia Tech/N. Carolina game is on. Tech is surprisingly ahead. All is well in the world. Love this place. The bartenders have been here forever and I really enjoy going here. Well, except there were no crab cakes. The kitchen isn’t open yet. Seems they were also having problems the day before with one of their “hot lines” and there was no food service at the bar that day. Meanwhile, I am waiting to get a text to let me know that the room is ready. By the time the second martini arrives, I had checked in with the girls, who are having a marvelous time and get a text (around 3:30) that room 5037 is ready for me. Whoo Hoo.

One of the highlights of this trip was reserving a Grand Villa. Many a time I have walked down the hallway and pass the double doors of a Villa. Oh to only stay there I thought as I trudged dejectedly to my puny one bedroom. Well, now it was my time to experience it.

The doors to luxury await me. What does it look like? Afraid since I am running out of picture space you will have to wait a little longer.

What is behind door number 5037?


Up Next: The Grand Villa AKA Jeeves, can you refresh this for me (Said in a Thurston Howell accent).

Can't wait to see the grand villa. I am sure you'll get some more oohs and aahs from those girls, I mean numbers.

What a fun idea for a sweet 16 party. DH and I were just talking about doing this for DD when she turns 16 but to Disneyland/GCV as we live in Utah so we can drive.

Love the report!
