Sad that the cruise is over.

On the plus side, Wilderness Lodge looks awesome!

we got to the MK and it was really really hot outside!


you can see the sweat on my poor dad's shirt

It was also kinda crowded. We rode a couple of ride, haunted mansion, pirates, maybe a couple others, and got some lunch at Cosmic Rays which was packed! We were eating, and we were so tired form the cruise we decided to go back to the hotel.
look at this giant dark cloud that came up!


we knew a big summer storm was coming up by the looks of the radar on my iphone, a bad one, with a lot of red on the radar! We decided it was time to ehad to the boat. We go to get in line and there are a million people in line! Then it started to pour, so we couldn't go to the busses, we were stuck waiting for the boat!
There was a ton of lightning and wind, it was pretty scary!
we finally get on the boat and bobby is against the side and I am next to him with someone next to me. well, I picked a bad row because we were right where the dip in the roof of the boat/fabic is and the water was POURING in on us. At first it was just plain miserable but then it was just so awful it was comical and we were laughing hysterically and everyone on the boat was laughing at us! my cheeks were hurting so bad we were laughing so hard!
don't know if you can tell but we are soaked!


we finally turned and it wasn't as bad but damage was done, we were soaked. We got back to WL and then had to run all the way back to the building in the rain. We grabbed some towels from the pool and went in a side door
HAHAHA


up next....one more day at WL

Awesome TR!!!! We're staying at POR before a 5 night double dip in December so this was really helpful!!!!

Could you explain how you made those great shirts you wore on the day you got on the ship? I am craft-challenged. I would love to try to make some for my kids!

I had someone form the design board make our names into the characters, then I printed them on iron on transfer paper from my printer, then ironed them onto white shirts, wala! so easy! they usually come with directios or you can find some on the design board!

Ah! Wilderness Lodge...you can't beat it! (We call it our second home!) Love that your rooms were ready so early...and connecting at that! Did you do online check-in so they would be prepared for your early arrival?

no, we didn't online check in but the concierge staff did ask what time we would be ariving. Surprisingly, the concierge floor and lounge were basically deserted the two nights we were there!

I am pretty sure we took a nap after this, as we had gotten up so early, and we were exhausted from the cruise.
at 5 we went to the concierge lounge and we just decided to snack on that food as our dinner because we were so full from a week of eating non stop!


my dad and I in our "mine" shirts







after we ate we decided to take a ride over to the Grand Floridian and visit with some CM's we know and listen to the music in the lobby. We took the boat over.



As soon as we walk in guess who we see:
Joe!

we hung out and talked to him for a little while, then went back to the hotel for desserts in the lounge.



we really enjoyed just hanging at the hotel a lot that day in the lounge and just relaxing and talking...so we decided to do it againt eh next day! instead of usiang another base ticket for bobby b/c we knew we wouldn't stay in a park long b/c it was hot and we were already tired, we decided to stay at the hotel, hang out by the pool, and do some exploring the next day!

up next: last full day of the trip. (

Concierge sounds amazing! Was it costly? Did you feel it was worth the price?
