[QUOTE=podsnel I agree- last minute trips are excellent!! Timmy's bag is just a rolling backpack made by High Sierra- I think I got it a couple of years ago at Modells. It is well made and held lots of stuff!![/QUOTE]

Thanks, will have a look for one

Checking in! Now going back to read - looking forward to seeing how you like our home resort! We love Grandstand!

P.S. Okay, now I'm caught up! It is so cool that the coach made sure Tyler got to go! What a guy! Your room looks familiar! I think the SSR rooms are just so restful. Just looking at the pics makes me want to take a nap! Yummo on the sammies! We like EOS too I have been wondering - do you have to have a ME ressie? or can you just show up and ask for a ride? We had an issue with Jim's CC not being activated when we rented a car, and I used my debit card. The clerk was adamant that if my card didn't go through, he couldn't rent us a car. Of course it was fine, but I remember saying, "That's okay, we'll just take the Disney bus!" But I wondered if that were really doable
Looking forward to more!

How fun! I love that you got to surprise your one son! We loved EOS when we went in Dec- my husband fully intended to get the holiday sammie when we went back to DTD, but it didn't end up happening. Can't wait to read more about your trip with your boys!

Great TR so far and I'm looking forward to reading more. SSR looks lovely. We've never been there but, it definitely looks like a resort to try in my book.

I'm in! We love EOS! I feel like it is a hidden gem at Disney. I have had the turkey and stuffing one before and it is really good, but my favorite is the Original.

Here I am Ellen...all ready to hear all about your little trip with the boys!

SSR looks really nice to me! That's one of the few Disney hotels us non-DVC folks can snag consistently and at a reasonable oop cost. Not that we have yet, mind you. I totally need you to have a few words with Ron next month. Nothing at Disney impresses him anymore- (except.. and I quote "MAYBE, maybe AKL with Savannah view..MAYBE"). Yes, he is very sick in the head. Sigh. We are struggling to decide where we will stay in July but will probably just leave it up to Capt. Kirk and Priceline to decide for us again, however...

You are killing me with the Bailey's shake and the EOS pics. To paraphrase Sarah: "Look! Ice cream in a drink! It's for me. Can I?"

lovelovelove EOS! Original Roast Beef for us too. Or more accurately we each get an Italian and then we split an Original. Oink. But for real we get out of that place cheaper than Mickey D's. Crazy.

Was it hot enough for ya this week? I'm pretty sure some records were set. Whew!

Hi there! I really enjoyed SSR, I would always go back, especially when I want to relax.....

SSR looks nice - we had a reservation there last summer, but we love OKW too much and changed it back to OKW (like this year)
I guess we need to drive over to SSR and check it out more closely - even though I guess we will be staying value in 2012

Earl looks yummy! I could eat one right now!

Can't wait for more - and so happy I am in here from the start!
I actually had a choice between OKW & SSR, and I chose SSR because I have been to OKW more recently- plus, I had a hunch there would be some friends from home staying there (which there were!). Alot of people in my town own DVC, and several of them at SSR. SSR is similar to OKW, in that you feel like you are in a neighborhood. But at OKW it's Jimmy Buffet, and SSR, the music is a bit more sophisticated. It has a more formal feel than OKW does, yet it feels so tranquil.
Maybe another time for you and Tom!

I'm enjoying reading your tr, I thought most of the Jersey schools were off the week before or after Easter but I guess I was wrong. My older ds is autistic as well he also goes to a school out of district and has the same week as us this year. We are you going in Nov during the teachers convention is that when you are going? We hav'nt gone at that time since 2004. Looking forward to reading more! Linda
