I'm late to the game but thanks to your super handy links, I am all caught up. Welcome back Jackie! Isn't it funny how we always have great intentions of leaving early but last minute things always sneak up? I'm glad you got to enjoy a little leisure time, strolling around CBR. It looks so pretty!!!

Wow! Congrats on capturing the ever elusive sibling affection! WDW just brings out the best in all of us!

Connor's face while he's contemplating the locked door is too cute. Would love to know what he was thinking about at the time b/c am sure he had a whole back story put together as to what was going on behind there!

Cute waiters aren't just for teenagers...

No photos of the cute waiters?? Two of you w/ cameras and nothing???

Sorry you had to forego Teppan Edo (or did you fit it in later in the week?) but it's always fun to have something to look forward to on the next trip. Charles likes it so much maybe he'll make a trip just to eat there?

The resort looks gorgeous!!!

Great pictures and view from your room! It is always nice to see sibling affection and is amazing how Disney can bring that out.

Charles is too funny telling Chelsea about the cute Italian waiters. I remember going there as a teenager and eating in Italy for that very reason!

Looking forward to seeing if Chelsea was able to see any cute waiters!

Charles will learn the hard way one of these days about taking all the bags to the room before you inspect the room. Makes switching rooms if there is a problem all the more a hassle. I speak from experience....

Did you smell the coconut scent at the gift shop?? I loved that when I was there.

I am so spoiled this year. It started last Oct. I got my trip since my annual World Waterpark conference was at the Coronado. At that time, I had friends all ready to do a trip in the next year. I upgraded to the annual pass. The trip with friends was New Years.
On to Sept. My DS 16 has off labor day and 2 days at the end of that week. Since I took when my DD when she turned 16 and did the Backstage safari tour, I felt I owed my DS.
The Oct Trip ( trips really )are bookends on the conference again. The problem is the conference is in San Antonio this year. The year of the annual pass.
Oh Yeah, the July trip was a bonus trip. The fireworks, ToT and of course that parade ( that I hear just got extended) was luring me down. So I gave in.

Will look for MSEP.

Much to our delight, our room was ready, so off to Aruba we went to find room 5124.
I saw Aruba and started thinking the trip I went with my DD we stayed at CBR in Aruba. I happen to have the resort map handy ( don't ask ) and we were in 5130. Great location. right by the bridge and pool. Right in between the 2 bus stops but if you could do a straight line through the parking lot I don't remember it being too bad.

Love the Alice in Wonderland quote.

We got in our room about 1 hour before Jackie, room 5103. We were walking out of our room to go to the main pool for a swim, when this familiar looking man walked by, then when I saw the rest of his family, I knew instantly that it was Jackie. It happened so fast, and totally unexpected. This was the first time I saw a DISer on our many trips to DW.
I am I am. Can I start singing that song... about the not so large orb we live on? I am trying not to have everyone singing it for days.
So great that you "bumped" into each other.

Such pretty pictures of the resort and grounds!
Love the picture of Connor at the door.....perhaps he was thinking of a new storyline for a future movie!
Hope you have some pictures of the cute waiters!
How fun that you had an impromptu Dismeet!

Seems like no matter which way I walk around one of those buildings, I always choose the wrong-translate-long-way.

Glad you're there and your room location seems to have been met with approval!

Love the resort pictures, Disney does such a fantastic job of taking you away to exotic locations!
As usual Connor is a hoot with his poses, and Chelsea, well, yes, she is a teen!

Our waiter at Tutto must have been 70....
and I nabbed that MSEP cd way back the end of MAY!!!
