When we finally get back to WDW, I really want to stay at CBR, it always looks so beautiful in your pictures. Sadly, we only go every 2 or 3 years and we just went to DL in October.
We were actually booked to stay at WL a few years back but I changed back to the CBR to save that extra $1,000! I just couldn't make myself spend that kinda money. Now, if I had a 40% off pin code, I'd be staying deluxe all the way baby!

LOVED the breakfast food pics, we ate here about 8 years ago and really were looking for some fun from our waitress...she NEVER wet in to character and it was disappointing although the food was good.
After seeing pics of your house, I can see how you love many of their decor!

Happy Valentine's Day to you too, Judy!

I hate to hear that your waitress didn't get into character. I thought they were all supposed to do that.

Can you believe I never saw the geyser erupt the whole time we were there in October! It really is pretty cool. Glad you had such a fun start to your morning.
The waitress was a lot of fun and we were glad that we were seated in her area. We did notice that she wasn't as much into character with the table near us. They didn't look like a fun/silly kind of family. She did do a little joking around but not as much as she did with us.

That was the first time that we had seen the geyster spraying water and we've been there several times to visit.

Isn't it pretty there?! The food was fantastic!

I do NOT miss the days when we took the ferry. We would get split up and I was afraid that we'd lose a kid amongst all the people. I did not like it at all.

Cute Titanic moment. I'm glad the boys had a nice conversation with the CM. It looked like he was going to go tell them to knock it off!

Jesse and Hunter said that the guy was laughing at them and joking around.

I can't even imagine how much fun WCC would be with your family. Love the names your waitress assigned to you!!! Do many of the waitstaff do that? I haven't heard that before.

I wish I could remember our waitress' name. One year, our waitress was Heda Lettuce and she was a hoot too!

All of the food looked amazing! I would order what Jesse had. Yum!

I haven't been to the Lodge. My DH and I really want to visit and tour someday.

BTW- I spy a hidden d*ckie. Not so hidden.
The first thing that I thought was "did somebody have their pants unzipped?" Where's the hidden D?

We loved WCC! Had lunch there. DS asked for ketchup for his fries.. He didn't know what hit him!
Everybody needs to stand clear! The McBride clan is on it's way!

How many bottles of ketchup did he end up with? I think that Hunter had at least a dozen.

I think your Illumination pictures turned out really good. I can never get really good night time pictures. I guess I need to work on it for our next trip! We've only seen Illuminations once and we ended up behind some trees too. I definitely need to plan to see it again....tree-free!

Ugh! So scared of snakes! I would have been freaking out!

I love all the jumping pictures!!

Such beautiful pictures of the resort!! We are still trying to decide where to stay next year...definitely trying a moderate! But, one day it's CBR and the next it's POR. Good thing we have a little while to think about it!

WL looks so pretty!! Looks like it was a great breakfast!
Hey Angie! I was just thinking about you the other day. I was wondering how ya'll were doing and if you had any Disney plans.

I wish that I had realized that the trees were in the way of Illuminations. But, it wasn't that bad.

I couldn't believe that there was a snake right smack in the middle of Mouse Gears!

Look at my ticker....we added a day to the trip and are staying at POR for one night. I'll be taking tons of pictures for sure.

The bear on the coat rack thingy.

When you ever said it would fit right in with your decor, I'm think "Goodness, what is the decorating theme at that woman's house????"

Finally caught up on your trip report! Your pictures are great and add a lot to your TR!

We are headed to the World in June before DH heads to Afghanistan. Currently booked at Shades of Green, but seriously considering moving to CBR with the military discount. We are taking my nephew and our 4 year old great nephew for his first trip!

I didn't realize that they clowned around at breakfast at WCC. I knew they did at dinner -- we had fun in 2007 but the food wasn't worth the price of the entertainment for us so we haven't been back. Maybe I should think about a breakfast visit.

Fun update Lisa! I love how much fun Jesse and Hunter have together. That must really warm you and Lacey's hearts.

I've always thought about trying WCC (but I didn't really know they did breakfast-not that we're allowed to do breakfasts that characters don't attend). I think that WCC always looks like so much fun! and Bryan loves ketchup so . . .

We've only ever been to WL for the Hoop. I think I feel the same about it that you do about the Port Orleans resorts. When you live as close to Wisconsin as we do, you've seen that kind of place a lot. The lobby does look exceptional though, we'll make our way over there someday. That's the great thing about Disney-it'll take years to do everything you want to!

I was wondering-did you write a follow up email when you had the pin code issues? I'm trying to figure out if I should write an email, or just move on. Thanks Lisa!

Love the update. Wonder if they still do the skillet for breakfast? I know they don't for lunch. Looks like a nice combination. All the breakfast pics look yummy. Glad you had a great server!

Okay, my friends, I need some help. We have friends (they were Lacey & Jesse's Mission leaders and was the pastor who married them) who will be traveling to Walt Disney World to see the Christmas decorations. They are still undecided on what dates to go and are considering either Nov 22-25 or Dec 20-23. Any idea which would be the best time to go as far as crowds go. They have school age children so they need to work around the kids' schedules.

Thanks in advance!

I don't know from personal experience, but I would guess that the November dates would be less crowded. Although Thanksgiving is a very crowded time, the November dates are before most of the schools have a few days break. In December, the days they are staying are the start of the Christmas break for a lot of schools, so I'm guessing the crowds will be pretty heavy leading up to Christmas at the World.

The Nov dates you mentioned are the week before Thanksgiving. The week in Dec is close to the busiest week of the year. I have read alot about that time period as we are going 11/30-12/7 as you know. From what I have heard there are no discounts after 12/15/ The only thing is all the decorations may not be up but most will be. Discounts for that time usually come out in July

I love WL and eating at Whispering Canyon Cafe!

The last day at Disney is always a little sad.
