I was stuck in that position and ... It took 4 strapping young boys to hoist me back on my feet
Personally, I'm a popper! I love me some black heads.

I hate that DH barely slows down to let me pee let alone take a decent photo.

Things don't move as quickly as do they do on the WDW boards. I think you are safe.

It sounds as if you are off to a great start. That food looks yummy. I too am intrigued by the room comment. Looking forward to more.

Thanks! It's coming. I am trying to catch up at work and get the kids ready for camp. The fact that my babies will be gone for 2 weeks just hit.

We stayed at the 4 following hotels in chronological order:
  • Anaheim Marriott Suites
  • GCV
  • PPH
  • Casablanca

I would stay in St George or try the Virgin River. The Oasis is completely closed down. Mesquite is hurting. Pool only open until 9 pm.

No MM for you!

The original plan: Sunday 6/13: DL 8am-mid DCA 10-10 MM 7-8

• Check out of Suites and into GCV, drop luggage

• Disneyland rope-drop by 6:30 for MM, Fantasyland
Okay, the more I think about rope drop on this morning, the more insane I think I am. Knowing our party and as much as it pains me, I am making more Ridemax itineraries to include a 10 am start time and skipping MM/FL all together on this day.

• Flag Retreat at 4:45

• Fireworks!



What actually happened.............

As you can see the plan was to check out of the Suites and make it to MM by 6:30. Uh....it didn't go exactly as planned....for us anyway Our friends made and conquered Fantasyland it but we didn't. DH and I allowed DS to sleep in between us. Remember the scene in Pretty Woman when Julia Roberts tries to go shopping on Rodeo Drive and the snotty women in the store basically tell her to sod off? She comes back and says BIG BIG mistake? It was a BIG BIG mistake to let DS sleep with us. He kicked us all night. My alarm went off at 5:30 but when I tried to wake DH he said there was no way he was getting up and to let him sleep til 7:00. I did. I also fell back asleep which is an indication of how beat I was too.

We checked out of the Suites by 8 am and high tailed it over to the GCV even though we knew the villa wouldn't be ready. I was so excited for my first DVC check in. During check in the kids took some photos while DH self-parked the car. I was not paying $18 for valet.

Chloe and Kami in the lobby:


Chloe:


Joshua:


Gabby:

The lobby:


The fireplace soot:



The CM was sweet but we did not get out requested villas 6502/6504. We did however get 3502/3504. I was a little worried when I heard the villa numbers but they didn't disappoint. Of course you'll have to wait for that.

Haha! Waiting isn't fun and honestly the CM was so thorough but kinda slow. In her defense, I am sure she had no clue I researched the GCV to death so she was just doing her job but we had a park to visit!
