Cynthia! So glad you made it here! I guess we can wait another day for the introduction!

For the most part I feel like I am in the right state of mind, but I have to say that the strep throat and cold really threw me the double whammy. I haven't felt 100% healthy since and every once in a while I still get that annoying, horrible cough at night. Nick keeps asking me, "Are you OK?" You know the one I'm talking about.

I actually would love to have Jen as my daughter (who wouldn't?), cause she is just the sweetest girl and she is so smart and accomplished. She would make any mother proud!

You're right - I did pretty well! I guess I am thinking about how I looked in the airport. Park bag, camera bag, and big Disney shopping bag filled with assorted items. Every time I would get up to go somewhere, people who give me the "Whose the sherpa?" look. And, you know, I spent way too much time in the airport waiting to go home. (But I'll save that for the end of the trip)

Oh yeah - I totally worked that angle. How could they say no to someone who was flying from across the country and checking in at 8am? The idea actually came to me while I was in line.

I'm Cynthia, the "west" in this story and promise to come back and do a proper introduction complete with pictures tomorrow. Given the Carol Brady nature of my life, weekends are a bit nuts around my house but the day of rest promises to be just that tomorrow and I hope to make it full of updates!

Carol Brady! You are a bit like Carol Brady. And I mean that in a good way - energetic, organized, compassionate. I'll have to think about what Brady character best suits me.

Amy! Thanks so much for joining in! I have lots of pictures of BCV to show you. And it has always been my dream resort, too. I have been trying to stay there for awhile. It really was wonderful and I, personally, think the customer service was better there than any place I have stayed so far. They just seemed to have a little extra bit of niceness. (Is that a word? )

Poolrat. It is, indeed, race weekend. Surprisingly my friday afternoon traffic was not horrendous, so I think I got lucky.

My husband gets SO MAD at me when I start whispering "people of Walmart" comments to him. What can I say? Sometimes I just can't help myself.

Well if you are jonesing, you've come to the right place. You know how effective we are at "enabling the habit!"

I'm there 10/13-22 and think Tracy and her niece are there 10/15-22

Come on down!!! Food & Wine and MNSSHP...


------------------

Just wanted to add my to "old" and new friends alike. Thanks for joining us. It really was a super fun trip that will hopefully be fun to read about!

Brooklynn and I are coming October 15th to 19th. Jen and Anita will be there, too, around that time. Maybe we could have a meet for everyone at a resort on the night of the 15th? Do you know your schedule? I think we will do Hollywood Studios (or possibly MK) on arrival day, Epcot, MK, AK, and then MK for our 1/2 day leaving day. We (our friend, Kay, is bringing her granddaughter, too) will let the little girls decide whether to spend more time at MK and drop Hollywood Studios altogether or go to Hollywood when we get in at lunchtime on Saturday.

Jackie, here you go messing with our minds again about a trip! Would this be you and Charles for a long weekend or all of you?

Not sure yet -- if we can even afford to go right now. I think Charles and I would like to sneak away just the two of us, but Connor might mutiny in a big way if we tried to do that. Are you going to stay at Pop?

Yep. Room is booked. Plane tickets bought. Now we're just crossing our fingers for free dining.

I think we have some loose plans that include a later (8pm) dinner but nothing we couldn't move around. Sounds like fun!
