You know, patience is a virtue. (not that I have that particular virtue either!)

Working on an update for you.

The Schedule - take two

Was 2/3 done with the update and hit something and it disappeared!! Grrr.

Okay let's try that again!

We are flying! Yay! We've booked our flights with Delta and are leaving the Twin Cities on Wednesay 7/28 at 10:20 a.m. (at least for now, we all know how flight times can change!). We should arrive at MCO at about 2:30 p.m. We'll enjoy a lovely Magical Express bus ride to the Beach Club where we will hopefully meet Teena the greeter, and check in.
We are planning to enjoy the resort, and just hang out until dinner at 6:15 at Captain's Grill.


Park Plans:
Thursday 7/29 - MK

Hours - 9 - 10 and AM EMH

Friday 7/30 - Epcot
Hours - 9 - 9

Saturday 7/31 - DHS/AK
DHS Hours - 9 - 7
AK Hours - 9 - 6 and PM EMH

Sunday 8/1 - ???
No park plans for certain as we only have 3 days of tickets. That is also subject to change. I'll explain why later.

ADRS:

Wed - 6:15 dinner Captain's Grill

Thurs - 10:15 breakfast CRT (Shh! it's a surprise for the girls!)
5:15 - Spirit of Aloha dinner show at Poly

Fri - 11:55 lunch Coral Reef
6:00 dinner Chefs de France
we also have a 6:15 dinner at LeCellier that I got just in case CdF was not on DDP this year. I WILL be canceling that.

Sat - 11:40 lunch - Hollywood Brown Derby
4:30 dinner - Boma
This is intentionally early so we can go to AK and enjoy PM EMH. We don't plan on doing EE, mostly trying to get FOTLK and see some animals, maybe get to Kali RR (then we can be wet AFTER dinner!)

Sun - 9:15 breakfast Cape May Cafe

Originally I thought we'd check out and leave, but we may spend more time before heading to the beach.

Our "real" beach trip is the reason this WDW trip happened. My SIL's got a timeshare, and because they didn't use it last year, they have two weeks this year. They offered it to us to join them. They usually go in summer. I'm not one to leave MN to go to FL in summer (not a big fan of humidity) but when DH said we could fly and tack on some WDW time, I said "I'm in!"
So after the Beach Club, we're going to rent a car (have yet to book that) probably from Alamo at the Swan/Dolphin. We'll drive to Port Canaveral where the resort is. It's called Cape Caribe and it was started by Ron Jon's.

Back in 2003, when we first took the kids to WDW, we stayed at a Comfort Inn at Cocoa Beach. When we were shopping at Ron Jon's, DH found out about this new timeshare resort they were building. We went to investigate, and it was so cool, we got a one night stay there! We moved from Comfort Inn and were so glad we did. Later, DH tells his sister about it. They go there and end up buying!!! So they've been going there every summer and their kids surf etc.
It's a really cool resort with a small waterpark, lazy river, activities etc. You can see it from a Disney Cruise ship as it leaves port and you can watch the ships from the resort.

I will find some pictures. I don't think they're in photobucket, but I'll check.

DOUBLE DIGITS!!! WOOO HOOO!!!!

I am sooo happy you are at double digits!!!! That is sooo exciting....I wish you could have met Art the Greeter before he retired..he was sooo sweet...but I am looking forward to meeting the Teena lady....I have read some of her posts and she seems really nice and helpful. If I was a CM I would have a post on every page of everything!! ha!!!!I just love it-people would be sooooo sick of me!!!!! Well...I am gonna have to get the DizneyDawn girl to help me pick a title if I do a PTR or a TR when I get back...
And I don't know how many times I have had a whole page typed up here and just thought I hit ENTER and the whole thing was gone!!!!! I never can figure out what happened...very strange!

Well, just for fun I was looking to see if our airfare went up or down. I put in our date and the flight we are on actually has changed!!! The price went up (Whew) but it showed it leaving here at 1 pm!! No, that's not going to work for me.
So then I logged into Delta's website and checked our itinerary. They have moved us to a 9 am flight! New flight # too. I guess I won't complain, it's not too early and we get to WDW sooner, but when do you suppose they were going to TELL ME THIS???? Right on the listing it says "we will send updates to the contact information on file" That would be my email address. Nope, no emails yet.

They're just lucky the change was okay with me! I do now have to deal with rush hour traffic and getting the kids up super early to get there on time. I guess it's not as bad as last year when I had to get Sarah up at 4:30 a.m.!
Nice customer service. I may have to write a letter.

You can bet I'll be checking that itinerary frequently!!
I just think, what if I didn't know until that day (miss the flight!) or shortly before and it would be too late or hard to change? Ooh, my blood is boiling!

That kind of stuff gets me all stirred up too.....not Mike. He is sooooo laid back, he would say, "Why are you upset? You found out in plenty of time..quit griping and adjust your plans"....needless to say we don't agree on that front!!!! Causes quite a bit of uproar on my end!!! I am such an over-planner that I get riled up!! this is why I do all the planning around here!!!!

This is the view of the resort at Port Canaveral from the Disney Wonder. (I think they are zoomed in). There are a couple buildings, one is right at the beach and the other is more the "main" building where the pools, lazy river etc. are.

That resort looks so nice!!! Can't beat a hotel at the beach! My parents are at their "home" resort this week in Fort Lauderdale (so jealous). It's literally across the street from the beach (the hotel is on A-IA...the song that is mentioned in "Ice Ice Baby"!!! ). I've been there twice and it's lovely. It's actually on top of a 3 story open-air mall!!! Of course, I enjoy Marriott's Orlando properties a bit more.

Sheree, you all are going to love meeting Teena!
That lady is wonderful and truly makes staying at Beach Club a memorable experience.

Yes Shawna i'm in a group on the boards and it's great. Just slowly working toward a 15-20 lb loss. We have a thread over on W.I.S.H. I think there's a link in dizneydawn's sig. When you have a 5 lb loss she sends the palm tree.
Wigd - really hoping to meet Teena! I've read a lot from and about her on the yc/bc threads.

Thanks Shawna! I have been drinking a lot more water. I don't drink much soda anyway. But just adding water and watching food intake, trying to eat healthier. It's going okay so far. I have pretty low expectations and am not trying to change everything at once. I'll keep you updated. My boss told me the other day to go buy new pants because mine looked too big! I was thrilled!!!
