Your RnRC picture is probably what I would look like IF I were to ride it. I love your VotLM pics! They are amazing! My poor camera took terrible pictures there. Were you sitting near the front? Your boat ride to the Beach Club looked so peaceful. I would love to stay there, too.

Isn't it just beautiful??? And to walk in and out the back gate at Epcot... especially out at the end of the day and go straight to your room - very nice!

Thanks for the boat ride this evening. I can picture us there, seeing the rays of sunshine go lower and lower to the ground, hearing the water lap against the boat, walking into Cape May for some delicious food!

Thanks! We were sitting about half way in the theater. I used my zoom for most of those pictures thoough. The only problem with that is that my camera already struggles in dark areas and then when you add the zoom, it gets grainy. But for the type of camera I have, I guess they turned out pretty good. It's not a SLR, just a high zoom point and shoot.

That was the best boat ride I have taken at WDW. I will not hesitate to book an ADR in that area on a DHS day again. It was very easy to get there and back and the views from the boat are great!

Yes, beautiful indeed! I think that is my favorite area of WDW outside of the parks. I really want to spend more time there on my next trip. I want to go over to the Boardwalk and do some exploring there too.

I can just imagine that staying there would be awesome. I love WS so much that having that quick access to the park would be wonderful. The only drawback I can think of to staying at the BC is not having a food court. We really do enjoy that option and I think I would miss it. But everything else is just perfect!

Loved your last post. Your poor daughter looks petrified. Will make me think twice before encouraging the girls to ride it in the Fall now that they are Both tall enough too.
Proud of your DH for speaking up! Irritating that he was ignored though.

Love all the pictures! I don't think there is any such thing as too many pictures at Disney.

Yeay for DD taking a pic with Bo! Here's the story of how it all started...

http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...postcount=2107

Since then, Bo gets his picture taken a lot! Now, DD can see why Bo is such a popular guy.

Yeah, I would really tell them to think hard about it before riding, especially if they are not too adventurous. I think your older daughter might like it, but your other DD is a little younger than mine, so that might be iffy. Unlike my DH, I'd just be honest and tell them up front that the take-off is intense and it is very fast and goes upside down. Then if they choose to ride, it will be on them!

I absolutely think that guy understood my DH. I think he was just playing it off to save his hide. I guess that worked out best for everyone though. I'd hate to be bailing my DH out of jail while on vacation!

I was pretty sure that Chelsea was the originator of the Bo phenomenon, but I didn't want to say so since I wasn't sure. I know her picture was the first Bo picture I ever saw. And look how far he has come now! I wonder how many Dissers have taken that picture! We should start an "In Honor of Bo" thread!

I will have to share that link with my DD so she can see how it all got started. Chelsea looks soooooo small in that picture, btw!

I think the Indiana Jones show is a guy thing. Over the years I have sat thru it more times than I can count.

You have to stay at the Epcot resorts! I stayed at YC years ago and the after staying at BWI this last trip I fell in love

Can't wait to see how your dinner at Cape May went. We had done Breakfast there for my son' s Birthday one year and were not impressed and after our dinner there this year we both decided never again.

Can't wait to hear what you thought of your Cape May dinner. We stayed at BC in 2008 with my niece and her husband. Probably my most enjoyable stay so far (not counting our first stay with the kids at AKL-which will always have a special place in my heart). We enjoyed both the dinner and the breakfast. AND Stormalong Bay was the BEST!!! Still have my TR in my sig. Several photos there of our stay. I think what I found the sweetest part of the stay was how close we were to everything. We walked to both DHS and Epcot. Loved entering via the International Gateway (and leaving that way at night-low crowds and a beautiful walk). Plus we enjoyed wandering over to the Boardwalk for entertainment and dining. It was just an awesome location. Would stay there again in a heartbeat if I ever got another 40% off code.

Who knew what Chelsea was starting at the time because she was just being her normal crazy self?

I thought the same thing when I pulled up the picture -- she has grown so much in the last four years.

Hi Rinky,
Just popping in to say Happy Easter!

I am sorry that I haven't been posting but I have done my best to read along and am mostly caught up. We leave tomorrow so I will be behind again but it will give me something fun to do when I get back!! I love that I can always count on you and MeMom to take me to my happy place with your awesome pictures!

I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day.
Maybe school will ease up on me when I get back. I doubt it, but a girl can dream, right?

Happy Easter Rinky!


Great update! I just love DHS. I'm glad you got to see the Little Mermaid minus all the nasty PDA in line!! I really like the Indy show. Must be because I live with all boys and am used to that kind of stuff!

What a beautiful boat ride over to the BC. It sure is an awesome area over there. I can't wait to get there in a few weeks!!

Looking forward to hearing all about your dinner and seeing your BC pics!

You'll remember that by giving us lots of pictures while you are gone, right?

Yeah, that is probably dreaming, but the good thing is, there's not much left of this school year. We'll get a break and plenty of DIS time pretty soon. (Although my summer will be very, very short, since teachers are reporting the last week in July this year. )

Trust me, you don't have to twist my arm to convince me to stay at the Epcot resorts. They are already at the very top of my list! I am just waiting for the right deal to come along and I am all over it!

Wow, I'm surprised to hear that you didn't like either meal at Cape May. It gets such good reviews and most Dis folks seem to like it a lot. I can't say yet what our opinion was, but I will spill the beans soon enough.

That's what I am waiting for too. I NEED a pin code or discount to be able to stay there. No way can I pay rack rates. I want to stay there so bad though. If we don't get there this year, then I hope we will by 2013. I really think I will be head over heals in love just like you were if I ever do get that discount code!

She definitely started something big with Bo!

They all grow up so fast. It breaks my heart to see it happen so quickly. I know they have to grow up and become adults and all that stuff, but why does it have to happen almost overnight.

Please don't feel like you have to apologize for not posting much. I promise you that I will never hold a grudge over something silly like that. I know we all have busy lives and I certainly expect you to put your family and career ahead of posting on my little insignificant TR. Don't get me wrong, I'm very happy to have you join in whenever you can, but don't ever feel guilty if you are too busy. We're all just here for the fun of it.

I do hope you will be around the Dis more when summer rolls around. But I know that ends up being a busy time too when you have two kids of your own who are out of school as well. I just hope you have a wonderful time on that cruise of yours and I hope you can at least pop back in here and tell me how you liked it and how everything went! Make sure you spend plenty of time in one of those hammocks on CC!!!

I think you are right about having boys. I think we tend to be interesting in the things that make our kids happy. I guess that's why I'm all into the girly stuff at Disney and don't care much for the boyish stuff. I'm sure if I had a boy that would be totally different though. But I still think I'd like B&tB more than Indie!

I am sooooooo jealous of you staying at the BC. I was drooling over your Poly stay, but the BC is going to be even worse on me! I can't wait to hear what you think about it though. I know you will give me an honest opinion and we have such similar taste in stuff like that so I know whatever you say I will probably agree with!

Please don't remind me that school is almost out! I know that is good news for you guys, but that means that I will have 3 drama filled, giggling, screaming, hyper little girls running around here for 10 hours every day!

I can't believe you have to go back at the end of July! That seems crazy! So much for summer break!


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

I'm a little late but it's not midnight yet, so HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!!! I hope you had a fantastic holiday weekend!

Happy Easter!

Isn't That area just beautiful? I loved staying at YC, but the buses did stink. The pool is awesome, and though I never got in it, I plan to remedy that some day!

I can't wait to hear about Cape May. I am contemplating that one as well for Nov. I don't know how I'll have enough time to eat everywhere, but I'm gonna try!
