The kid in me really likes Maelstrom, I love all the trolls! We've stayed for the video quite a few times, and always come out happy.

Hey GF - Welcome!!!!! Just start with the Disney stuff so you don't go crazy reading all the other stuff. Unless, of course, you want to visit HHI. But you probably live close enough that HHI is no big deal.

Thanks. She is gradually improving. She's home in her own house now but still feels pretty tired. It's a tough situation.

Really? When is your trip? Is it in your ticker. I hate when I just miss somebody I'd like to meet. Bummer!

There are plenty of seafood choices there so I'm sure you'll both be pleased. They have a really nice tilapia dish too. I hope you both love it. Such a nice dining experience.

She's doing pretty well with everything, but I don't like the Coumadin monitoring schedule she is on. I would like to get her INR checked more frequently, but I also don't want to freak her out because Coumadin is the one thing she's not worried about. She knows about the green stuff. But they also told her to avoid cranberry juice and I have honestly never heard that before. In fact, I need to look it up.

I was bummed that I didn't get to meet up with Kara, but it is hard when you are there on a big family trip so I totally understand. Hopefully our paths will cross again.

I think they were a little strict because of it being so close to Christmas, but that was pretty funny. I park all over the place at different resorts and that was definitely a first!

They really do a nice job with the decorations there. I even loved the way the lobby of the villa looked. It was perfect.

Yeah - its bad when you are so confident that you don't pay enough attention. I did feel pretty stupid, especially when I told kara what a mistake I had made. DOH! It's the only word that really describes it!

Sorry I just seem to get all my replies done. This isn't like me, but I've been spending a lot of time doing the soccer video for Nick's banquet and that's about all the computer time I feel like having.

Thanks for being patient!

I only love noodles when I don't "tip" them over.

Funny you should mention that because I was just going over all the wonderful reasons why we should get an Owner's Locker. I forgot to mention noodle storage as a possible benefit.

I would absolutely love to try muscadine wine! I'm sure you already knew the answer to that question!

Anyway, because of the AP situation, I'm taking my mom down for Food and Wine, which I know she'll love. We're going one of the two weekends after Columbus Day weekend, so October 12-14 or the following weekend. I'd like to see if I can work in a Monday, too. But I'll probably only work in Friday. But I'll definitely be on an early flight Friday and very late Sunday, so I can really get three days out of it.

When are you going?

The BC in July sounds like heaven, but CSR is a great alternative. I love the CSR pools - quiet and big pool. Great for hot summer days.

I am going 10/17 to 10/23. Cynthia (eandesmom) is my roommate again this trip. We are currently staying in VWL but I know we will try to move closer to Epcot at the 7 month mark. We were thinking BCV this time because the studio looks so cool (I will be checking out one for a few nights in June).

You should definitely switch your weekend so we can meet up. Let me know if you do because when we make ADRs we can include you and your mom for dinner one night!

I would say Anita was driving the bus this time. I still can't believe she got through. She has the face of an angel.

She said Marc was getting a little tired of the "stories". I noticed the line to get in the parking lot at BCV and at the Contemp was very long. Fortunately, we were on the list at the contemp so it was easy entrance. In fact, I don't know how they found our name that fast. I thought they were actually BS'ing us at first. This is the first time I've been there for name checks. I'll remember that if we go again during the holiday season.

I thought we'd be able to relax by the pool in the 'spare time' we had. Ha! Not a chance! I keep meaning to start a TR because it really was a wonderful vacation, but I haven't gotten all my pictures downloaded yet.
I think once you see the CP once you know what to expect. I love music and I love the Christmas story and having a life narrator, but its not something I would do every trip. I will, however, probably do it the next time I there during the holidays. Even when I did the CP package I still didn't line up early enough to get a good seat. I am just going to devote more time to it next time.

Please do start a TR. I want to hear all about it. Get those pics downloaded.

The scenery in the ride is pretty cool. Ok - you've convinced me - maybe I WILL stay for the video next time. It gets such a bad rap I think the only time I ever watched it was my first trip 10 years ago.

Thanks! I really appreciate that. Having aging parents is really a challenge. They want to be so independent, but they can't. Plus its so hard to deal with everyone else's opinion of the situation. My aunt and uncle would like nothing better than to see my dad in a nursing home. And they aren't afraid to say it, that's for sure.

That's too funny, I've never heard anything bad about the video. It definitely could be updated that's for sure, but it's nice and educational. AND you get to sit a little longer before getting back to the hustle and bustle! Poor Denny wanted to stay and watch

BC really is...and walking into that cold lobby everyday was fantastic. And SAB at night... We'll see what I can make work. But I won't be upset about staying at CSR, either. I do really like it there.

Compared to the "coffee" served in the food court this stuff was great. Trying to play Goldilocks and have it not too strong and not too weak for my taste was the trick.

Denny loves anything educational. Everything he watches on TV is either sports, politics, and educational. He watches no sitcoms whatsoever. He's one of those "smart" people. I, on the other hand, tend to be more mindless when it comes to my TV choices.

It is fun. We rehearse again this weekend. Of course, I now have a cold so that is going to make it tough to rehearse. As long as I'm better by Friday because that's when the first show it. Fingers crossed.

Love BC. We are actually going to try for BWV. That's where I am staying this summer. I know Tracy and Christine will be at BCV during the stay, but I really like that BWV studio and I know Cynthia is like me - she likes to try new places. I will be totally thrilled to get either place during F&W. I figure we have a better chance at BWV because there are more rooms.

That's perfect. I know that Christine (2xcited2sleep) was talking about a big DIS meet one of those days. I think we need to start working on it. There's no excuse not to meet when its a girl's trip. I love being totally flexible. something you can't really do with the family.

Awesome! I am so glad to hear that so many DISers have trips that overlap. Time to start some serious planning! I hope your vacation gets approved.

Must be nice to be a BCV owner.

It's always good to cross some stuff off the list and to leave some stuff for a future trip. I think its impossible to get a whole list accomplished. I enjoy going with the flow at times and that's when the list goes right out the window.

That food court coffee is disgusting. I've had it a few times and I just drink enough to prevent a morning head ache. Being a caffiene addict will make you go to extreme lengths not to withdraw.

Looks like October 18th might be a good night for a DIS meet. I'm on it!

The trick is not feeling bad about leaving it on the list. I am still learning how to do that, but I am getting better.

Nes c**p fee is what I call it. I hear you on just drinking enough. That is what I did if I was at POP without a coffeemaker.
