Your dogs are adorable.
Thanks and welcome to this TR! They are Havanese and about 6 months old in that picture. They are great inside dogs. They get about 10-14' tall, about 10-15lbs, DON'T SHED and they come in all colors!

The Mickey "modern art type" sculpture now has plexiglass??? We used to take our look how much you've grown since our last trip photos there, but haven't in a few years. The kids used to sit in Mickeys ears. hmmm I wonder if that is the reason for the plexiglass. oops sorry.
It was our 1st stay at BLT. It was really nice to walk to MK even though we didn't go in!

I tried to think of every excuse in the book to justify a trip into MK but even I didn't believe them!

I can't recommend DC highly enough. It was absolutely fantastic and I haven't even finished that day of the TR! We will definately be going back to HDDR!

BUSTED!! The pic - the shark - the look - the blood! Don't remember which order they were in or what exactly happened - it's all kind of a blur!

TRIPLETS?!?! Dear lady you are a Saint! I can't even imagine. After starting out with twins, when DD was born, we kept thinking we were supposed to be doing something else because we'd have 15 minutes of nothing to do during the day! I used to dream of having a football team but after twin boys and a daughter, we stopped at a basketball team including DW and myself!

Why thank you ma'am! I kinda like all of them so I guess I'll keep them a while longer. I'm not sure they feel the same way all the time but I imagine as long as I keep taking them on trips, most of them will hang around a while longer!

Welcome to our little party! Glad you are getting a laugh or two out of it. I wouldn't mind "the look" if I could get equal amounts of "ooh la la looks" but that's a WHOLE different story!

(Side note: DW must have just read this post because I got another one of "the looks"! Sighhhhh...oh well, at least this time I know what this one was for!)

Welcome and glad you are enjoying the TR! The ultimate photo package was $219 before the 25% discount so it ended up $174.93 (tax included). It's kind of pricey but I really wanted all the pics plus the video. I clipped some of the video and posted small segments in a previous post. I guess we're spoiled now but I doubt I'd go back without taking advantage of the cabana all day.

Actually, I think this is very reasonable with the discount!

Just so you know, I have that song "She's Got The Look" going through my head now....

I'm continuing to thoroughly enjoy your trip report!

WOW- your Discovery Cove day looks amazing!!! Love dolphins, love snorkeling, love unlimited food & drink!

As far as the water temp- bring it! I'm from New England. Anything above 70 degrees is a hot tub.

Incredible pictures all around. The photo package was definitely worth it. There's some priceless pictures and memories there!

More, please!

THEY DON'T SHED? 10-15lbs? Tell me in general are they good with young children? We may be looking for a pet in the next year or so. Although, we usually go to a shelter.

I can't recommend DC highly enough. It was absolutely fantastic and I haven't even finished that day of the TR! We will definately be going back to HDDR!
Thanks! I will be looking into this for a future trip.

We have a singleton 12years the triplets junior. She IS our last. Not sure if it's her "loneliness" or my age, but I am always tired with this one. BTW, I have something to tell your twins.... My Mom carried twins. I got lucky enough to have triplets. ... (give them a little food for thought)


Why thank you ma'am! I kinda like all of them so I guess I'll keep them a while longer. I'm not sure they feel the same way all the time but I imagine as long as I keep taking them on trips, most of them will hang around a while longer!
I am only speaking the truth. Ahh, the old, "if I take you to WDW will you follow me home" trick. DH got me with that one.

I'm so glad you are enjoying the TR. As you know, they are a labor of love to write, especially with pictures, but it makes it all worthwhile knowing others are enjoying the diatribe and maybe finding out a thing or two to try.

From NE, huh? Yeah, I heard stories that y'all get something up there called snow. Being from South Mississippi, I'm not sure what that is but I did see some on Main Street two years ago when DW and I went by ourselves to WDW. Is that the same stuff?

Nope, don't shed. Perfect inside dogs and they LOVE children. Just Google "Havanese" and you'll find plenty of people with puppies for sale. Word of warning though, get ready to ooh & ahh.

No way will I tell them that. DS1 and DDiL say they're never having kids. DS2 says he'll never marry. DD will start med school next fall so she better not have any for 8 years! As you can see, I won't be a grandpa anytime soon so I'm not going to tell them they are prone to have a litter!

I tried that once...they went to WDW but weren't as enthused about all things Disney as I am so I told them to NOT follow ME home! There are just some things you have to put your foot down about!!

Now where was I in this trek of ours? Oh yeah...

The next hour or so was just sitting and watching the other dolphin swims from our excellent view. It was nice just to relax, drink a soda, eat a snack and reapply the “ghost” cream. After a while we decided to find the aviary. A bit of advice here – if you get the chance, try and visit this as early as possible. After a whole day of people visiting here, the birds have been fed a lot and aren’t as eager to eat out of your hand later on in the day. Some still did for us but if you want to feed a lot of them, go early. BTW, the bird feed is free. Here are some pics of the birds we were able to see

This albino peacock was hiding

A few more birds








And then we found this little guy that let me pet him while DDiL fed him





Fortunately he wasn't repulsed by the humongous bandage you can see on my leg from that life-altering encounter earlier in the day!

That about concludes our day at DC. After our visit to the aviary, we relaxed at the cabana. DD and DDfi made another trip to the Grand Reef. We were going to try the lazy river again but everybody was getting tired, especially DW. DW and I visited the shops and then purchased our picture package. It was a fantastic day, even though I had to fight for my life against the man-eating shark!

Here’s a side note. If you noticed in the pic of the map of DC, there was an area that the Wind Away River meandered around that is listed as “2012 Future Experience”. This area should be opened real soon if not already. It is called the Freshwater Oasis. Here is the promo information:

Freshwater Oasis is an all-new attraction featuring swimming and wading adventures and face-to-face encounters with playful otters and curious marmosets.

When guests participate with nature at Discovery Cove, they unlock discoveries that can be life-changing. Freshwater Oasis is an all-new opportunity to wade up-close with wildlife in a relaxing tropical setting. It’s an exhilarating tropical exhale.

Designed with a rainforest canopy above and sparkling-clear springs below, Freshwater Oasis is a natural fit within Discovery Cove’s tropical vibe. Guests can relax and explore. They’ll wade, wonder, swim and float in the water-filled trails and discover marmosets and playful Asian otters. No matter where they turn, they’ll find endless discoveries.


I don’t know when we would have had time to do this but it’s another reason for us to return to DC one day soon. Of all the places we have been to in and around Orlando that were not Disney, Discovery Cove is the most “Disney-like”. The DC hosts/hostesses were extremely nice and pro-active in making sure your experience was memorable. The facilities are very nice and clean. The theming is great. It’s a first class operation all the way. If you ever get a chance to spend a day away from WDW, Discovery Cove would be a great choice.

Wow - those birds are amazing! I'm not sure if I could talk Denny into swimming with the dolphins. He never learned to swim well and he is a little water phobic, but I think he would love the birds.

That future area sounds pretty cool, too!

Discovery Cove sounds wonderful! Your family looked like they really enjoyed the time there!

I was looking at the DC website, the rainforest area looks like it will be really cook, but I don't know if I could enjoy it while worrying for snakes. It just seems like the perfect area for them to hide out. I wonder if they'll put up a sign?

Your poor daughter-in-law and that dolphin! That would have been so embarrassing! She seems like she's a good sport though and that you all got a good laugh.

OK, time to pick up your stipend from Sea World for promoting Discovery Cove. I'm sold! Sounds like a simply amazing experience.

I'm hoping the Freshwater otter experience has the critters behind glass. I would hate to read a future installment about you encountering man-eating otters.

We stayed at a resort in Jamaica that had an onsite aviary with tropical birds that would land on you as you fed them. It was majorly cool!

Speaking of cool- yes, snow really does exist and I don't think it is exactly what you encountered on Main Street.

With sincere apologies to Forrest Gump- winter in New England is like a box of chocolates- you never know what you are going to get.

Two winters ago we were nailed with 1-2 storms every week from Christmas through mid-February. This past winter, the only school cancellation we had was due to a snowstorm on Halloween.
