Awwww, the bittersweet feeling of finishing a TR!

Nice bathroom, BTW, and I agree that could be the creepiest chair ever. The AC agent saying "bite me" is especially funny, knowing how they are anyway, and given the extra stress of the labour problems...

If I can get it together for the TOT race it will be September 2013 for me, otherwise 2014 for me too. Booooooo

Anyway, loved the report!!

I've had a busy day. I've been at "it" since 10 am and I'm very tired. So essentially ^^^^ What she said!

In all seriousness you did a lovely job on the report... so much so you'll just have to get back there a lot sooner so you can write another one for us.

As for the Boardwalk Inn I have a feeling some serious Steven King fans lurk on the design team for that hotel. I wouldn't be surprised if a lounge opened up over there called The "REDRUM".

And as for me, Magical Depress can take my kicking and screaming asp back if they can catch me. I stay until the bitter end....

Awesome trip report!!! So sorry it has come to and end but thanks for sharing your pictures and stories with us!

OK, that is hilarious about the bathroom and the note on the toilet! Good thing you were able to get into that other apartment!

Very cute conversation with that little girl.

Since I have boys, my BBB stories are limited, but my favorite happened to a friend of mine when she took her two girls to Disney. After a beautiful makeover at BBB, the daughter FREAKED OUT and would not be consoled until the family immediately returned to their resort to wash out all of the makeup and hairspray.

All.that.money!

Thanks, again, for all of the smiles!

Thanks for following along. It has been great getting to know you through our trip reports. If business ever brings you to Toronto again, let me know and we can get together for a coffee or drink.

I will take your suggestion to get back to WDW sooner, just to write another report. In the mean time, I hope to live through your trip report at the end of the year.

Thanks for interjecting your humour into my life. It is fun to have it show up at unexpected times and always makes me laugh.

I loved talking to that little girl. She was a nice highlight in a long day. Those hairstyles are cute but do like a bit of a burden. I can imagine that there are some girls who can't wait to be rid of it (but I'd be so upset if that were my child.)

Thank you for all your tips and tricks that made our trip better!

Thanks for reading! It is fun to see people debate YC and BC, but the reality is that they are both fantastic. I'd stay at either side anytime!

Thanks for a great report Janet! I've been reading all along and really enjoyed it. It was nice to see things from a fellow Ontarian's (is that a word??) perspective.

I cannot even imagine arriving home at some ungodly hour only to discover that I couldn't use the toilet. You handled it much better than I would have!

I'm all for making up words, so Ontarian works for me. Nice to meet you!

Although the contractor did a great job, he's not known for getting things done on time, so I thought we might have an issue with the bathroom when we got home. I made sure to tell the superintendent that I wanted the bathroom across the hall as our backup, so I figured he would have left the apartment unlocked for us. But yes - not having our bathroom availalble then was the low point of our trip.


I forgot to add one more thought about the renovations that I only realized a couple of weeks ago. I was talking to my son about how much he is growing and we went to the wall where we have marked his height over the years to compare how much he has grown since we last measured. That's when I realized.... they painted our hall, which means they painted over our growth markings. You all have seen how I love my growth chart pictures, and now my actual growth chart at home is gone.

Just wanted to say I have loved reading your report
You captured some amazing photos (even if one of them was the creepiest chair known to mankind).
So how long before you're planning the next trip lol?

Love the new bathroom by the way but so sad your "growth" chart is gone. Bet you're glad you have all your disney growth markers

Sadly, no next trip planned yet, but I know there will be one someday.
