That's good to know! I don't like the taste of alcohol either. I was traumatized on my 23rd birthday, when my friends got me three shots of Tequila. I was drunk in 30 minutes flat I am now 34 and have not a drink since Have tasted some wine, but it has to be so sweet that it makes my teeth hurt, just so I don't taste alcohol.

Her's the kicker...well for me at least....we are staying at Yacht Club. Yes, they are putting us up in a Deluxe resort!

I have booked my flight for Aug 14 and will stay at AS movies that night. I have always wanted to try it once, and I figured since this was a learning trip, I might as well give it a go...even though I do LOVE POP. The next day I will check into Yacht club and get my welcome packet. I will also be receiving a 5 day park hopper ticket. So I will most likely hit Epcot or DHS.

We already start touring resorts that afternoon (around 4) and have a dinner and dessert party at Epcot that night.
The next morning we are up early for breakfast at Cape May, then off to Port Canaveral to tour the Dream for a few hours. Then back to AK for the afternoon and the late evening is our own.

Up again early the next day for breakfast in the convention center and classes. Then off to inspect Ft Wilderness and lunch at WCC. Then touring several more resoerts. THEN we have tickets (well it says they are waiting approval yet for that, so it could change) to La Nouba. After that the night is our own again.

The next day is similar with breakfast and seminars. Lunch at PoP Century and touring more resorts. And ending with touring Blizzard Beach. This day ends late afternoon and we are on our own again.

The last morning has breakfast and Trade show, which I really don't know what that is and a few other things. Then a graduation ceremony.

A few other girls are still thinking of going from my Travel Agency and one put her info in today and is waiting aprroval as well. She is the one I requested as my room mate and vice versa. Once she is approved, I'll tell you more about her. We don't know if she'll be approved so fast, since tomorrow is Sat.

I will most likely start a PTR at some point and time, but for now, I need to work on this TR and get my Cedar Point TR going for my blog.
I think that is my hidden passion of mines. I would enjoy being a TA, specializing in all things Disney. I love to travel.

Boy am I jealous! That sounds soooo good! I am really excited for you. You get to do so much stuff that I would love to do. I always wish that I had time to just go around and tour the resorts. And staying at YC!!! That's pretty nice! I can't wait to see your pictures!

loved the report - your pictures are fantastic - can you tell me what kind of camera(s) you used? I'm looking for a new one and mu current one doesn't take great pictures inside?

Thanks,

Gotta love friends! I can drink beer, though not a lot, but hard alcohol has to have basically no taste for me to drink it. Like amaretto (I'm sure I butcherd the spelling). But that tastes good in a few drink, gives it a fruity flavor. Drink it in a sour or with ornage juice and it's really good, but I can't drink much or my stomach will hurt.

YAY! Thats OK, I am impatient, and most likely I wouldn't have noticed it too quickly on someonelses report. It wil lbe a long schedule, but as you can see from this report, I am on the go a lot anyways.

I'm excited about several things, but the Yacht Club really excites me a lot. I was expecting a moderate...mostly CSR sicne they have a convention center. I didn't realize there was one at Yacht club too. I really don't know a whole lot about the Yacht Club. I have alway been interested in the Beach Club though. I mgiht have to try and get to Beaches and Cream now this trip since it will be so close!

Thanks,

Thanks so much! I use a Canon 50D which is a SLR. Inside shots are really hard to get. As you will see when I do more restaurant shots at WDW, they are not too good.

After the party we met back up with Mom. I think we went back to the room and got her. We then headed over towards Royal Palace area, as that is where dinner was to be that evening. We still had some time and there was a huge line waiting to get in.
Claire and I went over to the photographers and had some pictures taken. I didn’t like this guy as well. The girl was much more creative the night before and took her time. This guy seemed more puzzled about it, but that was OK. It was fun to do.





This one is Skips ultimate Favorite. He wants me to use it on our Christmas Card this year.



Then the guy had Claire jump. It took a couple of tries to get it right.





And he got 1 with me in it too. He really didn’t take too many pictures at all.



By the time we were done, Royal Palace had opened and there was basically no line left.









We were seated promptly and again our booth was very near the door. Not as close as the night before, but still right up front.



The light fixtures were gorgeous!!!









Look at the cute bread basket.







A photographer came over and shot some pictures of us.









Claire ordered a special drink tonight. It came in a collector’s cup with a light up Tink on it. Tink was a big hit and we played around with it a bit.





I had brought the Navigator with us to look over. I noticed it said the Dooney and Bourkes were 10% off that day. I had looked at them the night before, but I really wasn’t in love with them. Mostly because of the texture. A lot didn’t feel like leather, but more of a shiny vinyl. Mom said she wanted to go look at them and perhaps buy one for a friend, so we decided to go shopping after dinner. Claire also declared she was NOT going to the club after dinner that night. She didn’t really say why, but we were sure she thought we would actually do something without her and she would miss out. The nerve of us!

Pirate night looks like so much fun! I really like the pictures of Claire - so cute!

Congrats on getting accepted for the Agent education program! I'm sure you will have a wonderful time, especially since you will be staying at the Yacht Club.

How cool that you get to go to the agent program! I'm jealous!!! I have often thought about another career involving Disney - that could be it! But like you say, I'd need to build up a client list etc.

I'm glad you posted pictures of the Buccaneer Blast! We basically missed most of it, and I just posted on my TR that I had NO pictures from the Pirate night party/fireworks! I should refer them to your post!

Royal Palace was beautiful! I thought that bread basket was so cool too!!

I can't beleive I forgot to write this. I am going to go back and edit the post, but here is what I forgot.

After the Villians show, as I was walking out, Mom said someone mustíve lost a game and held up a card. I looked and OMG!!! It was my CF card from my camera. I had dropped it out of my bag. I almost lost all the pictures I had taken on my SLR for the first few days. Thank goodness she found it!
