It is such a plus to read about what a great day you had! Despite the Disney resistant husband, I'm glad that you had some fabulous memories to counter the bad.

And those pictures of your kids? Priceless! Love the black and white versions!

What a perfect night!!! It all sounds positively perfect. I have never eaten at Narcoossee's but it's definitely on my someday list. And I would love the opportunity to talk with an opening day CM... how cool is that?!?

All the food looks fabulous!!

How exciting Chris mentioned the idea of a return visit! That is a very good sign!

Sounds like the kids had a great idea. I will have to keep those special views from SAB in mind for future trips!

Wow, after reading that last update, I am now wondering if I should have booked Narcosee's. The food looks amazing! I was so worried about bringing our little 3yo DD to a nice 2TS restuarant, that I was afraid to book it. We decided on Flying Fish because that menu looks amazing as well. I may have decided differently if I had read an update like yours before.

love the description of the end to your day. Sometimes the happiest times on vacations are the unplanned ones.

Oh the Grand Floridian looks lovely, of course! I hope to stay there one day in the not too distant future! And I know just how you felt in Stormalong Bay. That pool is the best! Beach Club is really the best resort in the summer!

What a perfect night at Disney!
SAB is awesome. It's so hard to pull yourself away and go to the parks.

How awesome that you got to meet an opening day CM! I think I would have wanted to invite him to dine with us just to hear all of his stories!

Katie looks beautiful in her dress

You know, sometimes you just need a day to chill and relax. I think your last day at BC was perfect! I've decided that next time we go to WDW I want it to be for a minimum of 10 nights, that way we can have some down time and still have enough park time that we don't feel like we miss out on our favorites

What a fabulous update! I loved this one. First off, we are eating at Narcoossee's for our upcoming trip too. Thanks again for the great review! Honestly, we must have the same ADR taste because you ate at nearly all the places we are planning to eat in 2 weeks! And we're staying at the GF too! It's seriously my favorite resort, not at all stuffy and snobby like people think.

I am so happy that your last day at the BC was so darn magical! And it was because you were swimming in the pool yet again! I laughed at that because that would be like heaven for my kids! How special though that the Princess and the Frog was playing (we loved that movie) and then Illuminations. Sometimes it isn't all about running around the parks, right? What a darling memory Katie and Declan gave you!

This picture is adorable, I love her sweet outfit and that she has her American Girl with her! DD7 is debating which one she wants to bring to Disney. You captured some really great pics of your kids at the GF!

And maybe you could make this one your Christmas card next year, I'm sure Chris would love that, lol!

You have given me another idea for dinner ADRs. I added two more days to my trip just so I could try more places to eat. Shh, I really wanted a couple of days to recover from the GDs.

Katie's outfit is beautiful! I love that her AG doll matches her! The picture of Chris holding the doll is too funny.
We're eating at Narcossee's in August and absolutely can't wait! All of your food looks delicious-- especially those PEI mussels and the surf and turf. Yum!
I'm so glad your second to last night was so magical! The idea of swimming and playing and being able to watch/hear The Princess and the Frog (one of our favorites!) just sounds so wonderful!

What a special meal at Narcoosee's. I agree that it was a perfect ending to a perfect day... with a lot of pool time! My dd has a dress similar to Katiem but I have never seen a matching doll dress. Where ever did you find it?

Back to a previous comment- Your upgraded lens is amazing! I have an older rebel and have been looking into getting a new lens. After seeing your shots - I think it's time!

Trish...that brought tears to my eyes...if ever there was a perfect evening, you guys had it! The pictures are amazing....you all look so wonderful and relaxed!! Sometimes the best thing is to just be at the pool isn't it....we get caught up in the parks and forget just being together is that best part of any vacation.
