Ahhhh, Thursday, seriously? How lucky are you. We are not going until the 5th of November. We are meeting our friends who live in Florida and we all will be staying at BW. Can't wait to hear how it is. Be sure to post something ok? And yay for Terrie & Wally for being there now!

The whole family really enjoyed it. The food was terrific. I see why it is on your "must do" dining list.

I cannot believe that. I would have told her that the hot tub is not a pool so please do not jump in it.

SSR is a lovely resort. Like I said before, I wish I had more time to explore it.

Thank you. I wish we were going back to WDW sooner than August. But since we are not be sure to post some pictures. Enjoy your upcoming trips. Again, I'm jealous.

Window Shopping at Downtown Disney

When I left off, we had just arrived at DTD via the ferry. I must say, the ferry is a relaxing way to get to DTD. The SSR's ferry dropped us off at Pleasure Island. So, the first store we saw when we got off the ferry was the Harley Davidson store. I had to go inside. Every time I see a Harley it reminds me off my godfather who passed away in 2002. He rode this beautiful blue & white Harley. He kept it in pristine condition. I remember riding on the back of it with him. I miss him so. So, I had to go inside and to my surprise, we not only could take pictures of the bikes but also we could take pictures on the bikes.










After everyone got their turn posing on the bike of their choice, we were off to do some more window shopping.

Next, we went into D-Street.




DS found a chair he liked and took a little break from all of the walking.


The CM came up to DS and asked if he wanted to play a game of tic-tac-toe. I did not even know DS knew what tic-tac-toe was.


Come to find out not only did DS know what tic-tac-toe was, he also knew how to play. He won the game and received a certificate.

After our adventures at D-Street we went to Ridemakerz and looked at some of the cars on display.


DS was very interested in the cars. He wanted to go for a spin but of course we could not do that. He also wanted to make his own car but we did not do that either.

After Ridemakerz, I went to get my Disney rewards card from here:


After a brief telephone call, my Disney rewards dollars were loaded onto the card. The next stop was the House of Blues.

House of Blues

There were a few reasons I chose the house of Blues for dinner. One, we did not have to pay money to go to a restaurant in a park. Two, I wanted to eat somewhere I never ate before. Three, I wanted to go to DTD before the cruise. And, four (which was a bonus), I purchased a $25 restaurant.com gift certificate for $2.

I mentioned earlier that oour original reservation was for 4:15 p.m. but I moved it to 5:00 p.m. When I was on the phone changing the reservation time, the CM told me that we would now be sitting at the same table whereas if we kept the original reservation we would be split up. Well, we were still split up in two booths that were back to back so that was not too bad. Our CM was fantastic. The food (from the appetizers to the dessert) was DELICIOUS. Some of the food was a little spicy to say the least but it was so good. We arrived a little before 5:00 p.m. so we were able to order appetizers at 1/2 price which is a happy hour special. I did not take any pictures of the food because we devoured it since it was so delicious. Here are some pictures that I did manage to take.

Menus:







Inside the restaurant (you might be able to see some food on the table):

After dinner, we took the DTD West Side ferry to DTD Marketplace.

The Mission

Usually after dinner, DH likes to relax after dinner. So, when I said I wanted to go to the Marketplace he was none to pleased. I told him that he could go back to the room but he wanted to stay together. You see, I was a woman on a mission. Earlier in the day, DS was saying her wanted a Mickey hat like his daddy. Therefore, I was determined to get him one before the cruise. I do not know why I was so determined. Maybe, I just wanted to explore DTD but off we were to catch the ferry because we were not about to walk. The ride was very relaxing.





Once we arrived at the Marketplace, my parents took a seat at a table by the water. The rest of us headed to the World of Disney store. But, first we had to say hello to Stitch.


DS wanted Stitch to "spit" on him so we waited until the water sprayed him and then we went inside.




We searched the store and could not find a visor similar to DH. I left the store defeated and headed back to where my parents were sitting. DMIL, on the other hand, picked up the baton and decided to continue the search. She, DBIL, & DH went into another store. Meanwhile, DS spotted the train and wanted to ride. Usually, I would say "no" but, since we were not going to the parks, I decided why not much to DS's delight. Now, DS is into Thomas the Train so he was very thrilled to ride the train.




By the time the ride was finished, the troops had come back and reported that the mission was successful. They found a hat similar to DH & DS was very happy.



Since the mission was accomplished, we headed to the bus stop. Of course, DS had to run in the fountains.



We did not let him play long because we had to get back to the room. I had to do some laundry, put DS to bed and pack up the suitcases because the next day we would be headed to Port Canaveral to board the Disney Wonder!

Thank you. 53 days until AKV - how wonderful. AKV is our home resort. Have you stayed there before? Are you staying in Jambo or Kidani? Both places or lovely and have their own unique qualities.

Better late than never. I am glad you found my TR and that I could bring back some wonderful memories for you. SSR is such a lovely resort.

AKV is our home resort also. This will be our first trip home since joining in April. We are staying in a 1BR Savannah room in Kidani for 4 days and then moving to a 1BR Lakeview room at BLT. I can hardly wait. It will be our first trip since Christmas 08' and I'm having severe withdrawals. My best friend is coming with us and we're leaving all the kids at home
