Thank you!

It was nice to see the resorts, even if I didn't stop in.

Good girl for braving the rain. Hope you did not end up with a cold.

Q
It is neat looking at the pictures and seeing some lights on and some off. I noticed that too!

I didn't end up with a cold, but boy was I worn out by the end of the trip! Early mornings. Late nights. Rain. Rollercoaster emotions.

For future reference, it's in the way back, behind the store.

You poor thing, you were wet! No wonder sitting outside on the boat wasn't an issue. Worth it though, you got some lovely nighttime shots! I swear, it's one of the prettiest places in the world at night...the entire Boardwalk area.
Thanks for the help with the directions. I have seen the picture posted on the DIS, so it slipped by the censors at least once.

Yes, I was pretty wet. Drastic measures were taken by the end of the night. Tightwad Dee actually opened her wallet. More about that later.

I enjoyed taking the pictures from the boat. It really was beautiful!

It's to bad you weren't able to get over to the BC to see Teena, but at least you rode by and saw
it.

Happy belated Birthday Dee!! I thought I had posted earlier but I guess not.

Yeah - we found it. It's pretty obvious once you are standing in front of it and know what you are looking for.

You really are soaked. That rain - yuck.

Thank for all the great picture of the Beach Club and the surrounding areas. I love seeing it get duskier and the lights come on. It looks so pretty.

Hi Dee - just caught up. Love your pics of the Beach Club! Pick a pearl is always one of our favorite locations in World Showcase. I think I have 4 items from there and my daughters have just started their collections. The kimonos are beautiful! Love the Photopass pic. No rain is going to stop you from enjoying Disney!

Thanks for the birthday greetings!

Teena and I talked about trying to get together, but we couldn't make it work. I really didn't have any chunks of free time when I wasn't supposed to be watching boys!

Are you going to post pictures? Or try?

That was probably the second or third most drenched I have been in my life. One year during a Jimmy Buffett concert it POURED, but what can you do? We were also at Disney during Tropical Storm Faye and it rained pretty hard for 4 days.

It was really great seeing the all resorts at night from the boat. I'm not really a night person, and we have only walked back from HS at night, so I haven't really had that perspective before.

Thanks!

Even with the rain, I had a pretty enjoyable evening. I enjoyed watching the Pick A Pearl ceremony. It really was a show!

I was not about to sit around in my room on the last night of the trip.

Oh my, you are soaked in that PP picture, what a sin! That can't be comfortable!
Your pictures from the boat are beautiful, I love the boat rides around WDW, it's so nice to sit back and see the sights.

DH and I stayed at a bed & breakfast (Notchland Inn) right outside Bartlett. I can't think of the name of the town right now but I know that they only have 35 registered voters. Lol
We did some Christmas shopping in N. Conway. It was fantastic!

Hope you had a great turnout last night!! I'm sure you're relieved it's finally over.

Dee - it's been a long process but I am FINALLY all caught up on your TR! Can't wait to read the rest. I was so nervous for you keeping tracking of all those teenagers!! Any trips to your beloved "home" in the hopper?!

Thanks for the wishes. The event won rave review from the few people who showed up. We had a much smaller turnout than we hoped for, but a large enough group that it wasn't embarassing. That was my fear this past week when the only ones who preregistered were my dad and brother and I wrote out that check.

Yes, I was pretty wet. I was ok, and glad that my DH was not with me on this trip. He would have been miserable soaked like that!

Thanks for the nice comments about the pictures. The BC and YC hold a special little place in my heart, so it gave me such joy to gaze at them and take all of those pictures.

Sounds like a nice getaway, and I'm guessing you had lots to talk about!

SO glad it is over! On Saturday my DH commented that I seemed remarkably calm, at least outwardly, but all of my friends cringed when I called them during the day on Saturday. They were afraid I had gone over the edge.

Really mixed emotions. It was a fabulous event, but a financial dud. We did make some money and for that I am grateful. I had pre-event jitters that we were not even going to break even.

Glad to have you caught up. Not too much left in the report.

No visits back home currently planned but I am hoping to get back there this summer. A little time at Disney, a little at Universal (my son has been wooed by the Dark Side). We do have a trip booked to the Barcelo Maya in Mexico for February vacation, though.

That's funny that you are concerned about me keeping track of the kids. It just occured to me that there is an advantage to chaperoning a group of teenagers. Is anyone really going to complain if we lose one???

Oh wait. You may need another 12-13 years before you can answer that!

Okay I am finally (FINALLY!) caught up on your last day. Wow, that is some soaking wet touring. I sometimes get that anti-poncho feeling and just say "screw it," because you end up getting kinda wet in the poncho anyway.

Great photos of the World Showcase and the Epcot resort area! And I'm glad you got a good look at "home" on this trip.

I waved to Boardwalk every time we glanced across the lake in October and I can't wait to go "home" in January (67 days!).

Can't wait to see your Fantasmic photos, can you believe we haven't seen that show since our very first trip together in early 2009? It just never seems to fit our plans. Maybe in January or May?

Hooray for catching up! I know you have been busy making special plans since your return from the World.

There was definitely a benefit to having a waterproof camera so I could document everything that happened that night.

I knew the tentative plan for that evening was going to HS after EP to see Fantasmic, but it actually took me awhile to remember that I would do that by taking a Friendship boat and that taking a Friendship boat would bring me by the BC. That made me very

That's funny- the last time I saw Fantasmic before this trip was in July 2009. Again, the whole "my family doesn't do shows" thing.
