It certainly sounds as if your vacation is going great! Spending down time at the Caribbean Beach Resort is one of our favorite things to do while at Disney.

DisMomAmy: It was cold that day. It's been much warmer since.

Monday 's big surprise was an Illuminations cruise! Thanks to rider ClaireH for sharing with us. We had an awesome time. Yesterday was DHS. Very warm day but a lot of time in shows. Highlight was the Osborne lights. We even found purple cat! Past the halfway point now. Just a great week so far.

Amy- It was a cold day wasn't it. We had dinner at CG and it too cold to really be out watching the fireworks.

The rest of the week has been much warmer. Monday night the big surprise was an Illuminations cruise. Thanks to ClaireH for sharing. We had a great time. Yesterday was a full day at DHS. Osborne lights are awesome. Today back to epcot.
