1 year anniversary, 8 days and too much food......June 2011...11/14 Last Day!

Hey all!

Me and DH just got back from a 8 day vacation at our favorite place, WDW! We are both sad to be back to reality, so I'm very excited to start this TR so I can relive our adventures.

Introducing your characters

Jenn (25) and Luke (31)
We have been married for one year and decided to go back to WDW to celebrate! This year we are staying at the Boardwalk Villas from June 5 to June 12!

So please come along with us on our adventures through the best place on earth!

You both look like you are having so much fun and that's only from my observation of your first pic! I can't wait to read all about your trip (you are an adorable couple so I am a fan already! - plus you stayed at my all-time-favorite resort - BWV!)

Hey all! sorry it took me a while to start, things got a bit crazy.

Day 0

So I had to work the day before so I packed up all the bags

"Anyone seen a bunny?"
and headed to work early that morning. Leaving DH home sound asleep and having to pack up our kitty for her sleep over at "grandma's" (my mom).

So after work I headed to the train to head to my mom's because she was nice enough to drive us to the airport for our crazy early flight, 6:00 am! So..I get a call from DH while i'm on the train to tell me that he forgot his contacts at the apartment! so....this means that we have to go back to the apartment before the airport to get them......blah.

So 2:30am we are up and out ready to go. I slept about 2 hours...haha. So quick stop at the apartment contacts in hand and we are headed for the airport! Check in was super quick and easy...I would hope so being that it was like 4:30am..We headed and got some snacks to keep us going and waited for our plane.




So I am awful at taking photos on the plane so....I'm sorry. It was super uneventful.....I slept for like the whole ride and DH read "Behind the Magic". Before we knew it we heard music to our ears....we were landing!

We scooted through the airport and go on our first ride!



Then we followed the castles!

and we got in the line to go home!

Because it was like 8:00am in the morning they put everyone on one bus. so we all headed on...to a Meers bus dressed up with Expedition Everest pictures (I guess its better than the yellow one...) and I got super excited.



Soon enough we were seeing that beautiful sign.....which btw I could not get a picture of because we were way in the back! We stopped first at Pop then we were home at the Boardwalk!


We were greeted by a cast member and brought to check in! This really impressed us. There was no line at all so we got a choice of like 5 cm who all were like "Pick me!"

We checked in quickly, were given Anniversary pins! and told the magical words "Your room is ready!" We were very shocked and delighted. We grabbed our packet, bought our hopper tickets and then headed to find our room!




We were super close to the elevators, which I was worried about because that seemed to be a complaint.


Oswald's perch










and our view!



I really liked our room it was nice a spacious! I thought the color scheme was cute and welcoming.

So I'm gonna leave you all with that. Heres a hint for whats up later in the day

Great pictures! So this was a BCV studio garden view, right? Just curious...are you DVC owners or did you just want a studio instead of a regular room?....just being nosey...another question...do all rooms have balconies? I'm so not familar with the Boardwalk area...we are usually MK resort people...have 3 kids that MK and that's where they always want to stay. One day we will venture out

I see that y'all are going on a cruise! Us, too....we can hardly wait! Which boat are you cruising on?

Can't wait for more!

Heather

Hi! Just wanted to say that I'll be following along I read your dining report from your last trip a long time ago. (I knew you guys looked familiar when I opened your thread. Clicked on the dining report link and yep!, I'd read it ) I'm pretty sure I never commented though so I wanted to get in on this one!

I love seeing all of the different resorts in TR. I would love to stay at an Epcot resort one day. DH is hooked on the Contemporary though for now. I love it too but I would like to try something different. Maybe one day I can talk him into somewhere else.

Can't wait to hear about your whole trip!

Hey thanks! Yeah I believe it was a garden view. We actually rented the points from another diser. We got a studio because...it was cheaper All the rooms that aren't on the first floor have balconies, the first floor has like a deck. We had a hard time not staying at a MK resort....we love it very much but we wanted a change from our honeymoon so we choose BWV. It was nice because we could walk to Epcot and HS.

Yep! we are super excited. We are on the June 10th sailing of the Magic first Canada sailing!

Thanks for following

Welcome! thanks for reading our dining review! I might be doing one for this as well....just all in one (haven't decided......have to decide soon! haha)

You should def try a different area resort...it was a nice change...though...I don't think I'll convince DH to do it again he loves being right near the MK.

You really should! We rented DVC points and saved so much money. It wasn't much more than if we stayed at a value!
