I love Cape May breakfast. Glad you had a great time! Too bad about yachtsman steakhouse.
Glad you got to spend some time with your friend.

I'm caught up again. I love Cape May breakfast (haven't been in about four years....need to get it back on the list). LOVE the characters with Bill.

What a nice day at Epcot and such beautiful pictures (the sky is always bluer at Disney World).

Sorry for the not so great service at Yachtsman. We've never done a signature and that one and Cali Grill are the only two we've even thought about, but we just never get there.

I love your TR's. I haven't seen the Beauty and the Beast show since the
90's. I have been going with my DGS and that would be a fate worse than death. I will finally get to see it again this August with my DGD's. We are sending the boys to RockNRoller coaster.

I may have to try dining with an imagineer it looked really cool. I think after my Oct trip this year I will be planning another Christmas Time trip cause nothing beats Disney Decorations!!!
The Imagineer experience was great. You are so right about nothing beating Disney decorations.

I am with you. Beauty and the Beast is my FAVORITE!!!! I would have been in 7th Heaven just to see it again! It is too bad that things didn't work out for to see them.

Great installment!!!
We really enjoyed Cape May all the CM's were fantastic there.

The Beach Club looks really pretty. We were happy to spend time with "N", the B&TB meet would have been a bonus.

Bummer about Yachtsman. Was the food good at least?
The holiday streetmosphere skit is so cute, we just love it. I liked the cheese appetizer, we thought the steaks were good, Bill did not like the mac and cheese but I don't remember why and we didn't order dessert.

Kidding.. Kinda...

Get pics and seems like a great time.

Sorry the meet and greet didn't work out, hopefully Bill wasn't too upset I thought you should let him keep the surprise a surprise. I just didn't want to burst his bubble... Maybe next time!!

Hope you are feeling better! I miss you and can't wait to chat again! I have been a busy girl the last few days and have so much to tell ya!
You are not kidding, you funnel cake freak!!!

Bill wasn't upset at all. I am finally feeling better, you know about the other issue that is heavy on my heart right now. Thank you for being such a great friend.

I am becoming a big fan of meeting friends at WDW. Such great surrounds to relax and chat.

The characters were fantastic with both of us, we loved them. I know what you mean about the sky there, I can't get enough of it there, so blue.

Epcot we have a problem

Sometimes we have issues that other families don’t have while being in Disney World. Today was one of those days. We woke up, I helped Bill get dressed, got him in his wheelchair, he turned it on and WHAT!?? The joystick indicator showed the batteries had NOT charged overnight, even though it was plugged into the charger all night. I was in a tizzy, what were we going to do? We have never had this issue before. I messed with the connecter for 20 minutes and it showed it was charging. We were stuck, we couldn’t go anywhere until the wheelchair charged up.

We were on the deluxe dining plan and had a ton of credits so we just ordered room service for lunch and watched tv.

After what seemed like forever we left the room, I had to take a picture of the carpet in the hallway:

.

Here is a picture from MSN Bing maps showing our room location and how close to the boat dock we were. Loved the room location, yes I loved it, have I told you I loved it because if I didn’t tell you I will tell you now, I LOVED IT!!:



We looked through the shops on the Boardwalk:











We ended up eating dinner at ESPN Club, Bill had wanted to do this forever and we always ended up dropping the idea for one reason or another. Here is the view from the line we were waiting in because it was a Monday night and people were wanting to watch the football game:



Doesn’t Bill look happy:



We had a great dinner, the server was fantastic, and the environment was so fun. They had some guys doing sports trivia before the game started. Bill and I knew almost every answer. We decided we needed to go back to the room so I could pack us up, we were headed to Pop Century tomorrow.

Next installment… Split stay Pop here we come

Oh wow, how incredibly frustrating!

ESPN seems to be very popular with lots of folks but I've never heard anyone actually comment on the food or service so that's nice to hear.

POP after BWV... seems like reverse might have been easier but I know you guys adore POP so I hope it goes well!

I could only imagine the things going thru your minds. Wondering if something was wrong with the battery or the charger. Maybe the outlet?

Sounds like you made the best of it though. A forced rest!

I like the food at ESPN, yum!

That sucks. Did you ever figure out why it didn't charge?

It was the older wheelchair we think the joystick charging outlet is going bad.
