It's taken me days to catch up on your trip report and I really wish I had multi-quoted as there is so much that I wanted to comment on!

First for NYC - I'm so glad that you braved the subway, I told you it was easy! And I'm glad that you had so much fun at the Yankees game. Your DH said we would enjoy it and he was right, it was such a great day!

It sounds like you really enjoyed your time at WDW too despite the few hiccups.

I'm sorry that your DD didn't enjoy Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. It was our favourite ride of the whole trip so I guess I thought everyone would love it. We are thrill ride lovers though, so a little different to your fraidy family .

aussietravellers trip report has me considering AKL next time, but after reading yours, I'm liking the sounds of WL! Decisions, decisions!!

Your lunch at Teppan Edo sounds really fun! I wouldn't even consider eating somewhere like that because of my fussy eaters, but your story gives me hope that we might be able to eat somewhere like that one day! It's a shame that you missed out on Biergarten as we really loved it there, but it will be there next time!

I know there was more that I wanted to comment on but I've forgotten . Can't wait to see your photos!

The baseball was just awesome and DH is completely hooked. He has had the Yankees on the tele now for 3 hours, he just loves it.

Yeah, the Harry Potter ride really shook her up. I wish I had've gone on it though so I knew what everyone was talking about.

Wilderness Lodge - well it was simply heaven. I know aussietravellers and I will be say try our preferred resort, , she AKL and me WL but you really can't go wrong with either to be honest. I just preferred the theming of WL more for my family.

Definitely try Teppan Edo next time, if my son ate there, any kid could .

I have to agree, I don't think you could go wrong with either resort. The same person designed both and are both awesome resorts. I would like to try WL, but with my DS and his love of animals I know AKL will always have to be on our itinerary.

I second Teppan Edo, it was an awesome meal and such good food. I'm not up to Teppan Edo on my TR yet, but will get there, one day

Okay okay, I have some images ready to share but I don't know whether to just add them here at the end without any commentary, or whether to go back and add them to the end of each day's post?

What do you think?

Can't wait to see your photos

I am going to go back to add the photos to my report's then do a post with links to that actual reports post so people can find it easily.

But I think either or, which ever you prefer. I think everybody is going to be so excited to see your photos they won't mind where you put them. Your photos are going to put mine to shame

I haven't finished yet....but I raced back here to say that your view at WL is AMAZING! No wonder you raved about it.!!

ps. I'm sure you'll pick it up sooner or later but in Day 5, you have a picture of WL before the dinosaur in NYC.

I know PIO, the view was truly awesome. After such a terrible day getting to WDW, it was almost worth it when I saw the view.

Thanks for the heads up about Day 5, I have fixed it.

You've got some fab shots there! Your family looked like they were having a fantastic time.....and so did you! Thanks for sharing.

I have to ask - What were your settings for the Nemo and FoTLK shows; and the fireworks? Did you use a tripod for the fireworks?

Thanks for updating the photos. DD, DH & I have a few pages to go, and we're enjoying the pics very much.

Settings, hmmmm. I had the ISO at the highest the camera I had with me would go, 1600 I think. I had the aperture opened up to 4.5 for the shows because I was using my zoom and something like 8 for the fireworks. I think. I didn't use a tripod for the fireworks. I just braced myself on the railing at the Tomorrowland Terrace and hoped for the best. I have seen some amazing fireworks shots here on the DIS and know that mine aren't some of them but these came out alright in the end. I would love to have more time there and go by myself and yeah but never gonna happen.
