I'm so glad to hear that you loved it that much. It really is a great resort and I felt the exact same way the first time I saw it. Now I can't wait to get back!

I think you get used to the "dark" and the kidani rooms are so bright and spacious that you pretty much forget about the dark. The cold on the other hand - I do remember how cold the Kidani halls were after hitting the pool. BRRRRRRRRRRR!

If you don't like curry at all, then you probably wouldn't like it. I mean, there are things you could eat there, but why have to stress about it. That bread service though - OMG - best bread ever!

Aren't those cottages A-MAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I looked at the prices for next October - $750 a night. Yeah - not gonna happen.

A feeling made infinitely worse when Denny's response was to "retrace my steps". WHAATTTT? I just had to walk away.

You know - and I may have said this already - but Disney would make a lot of people happier (myself included) if they would just put a darn animatronic lion on that rock in full view. Then everyone would think they got the greatest picture ever! Just sayin!

Yeah - that would be totally not cool. I think its really great that none of those animals ever escape. Imagine that.

Thank you and I agree that the resort is simply amazing. There are so many things that I absolutely love about AKL!

If you have never visited there than I highly recommend it. The theme is just so great and the music puts you into the best mood. And all the artwork - so very cool!

I really hope you don't have to cancel your Feb trip. AKL is such a wonderful resort. I love it. It's beautiful! Fingers crossed that you trip goes on as planned or that you can reschedule it at a good time.

Isn't SSR so pretty. Love that place.

That's so funny that your brother is talking about how he can't wait to be back in Disney. What a change!!

I am also an absolute sucker for Finding Nemo the musical. I seriously almost cry every time. I just can't take it during "Where's My Dad". *sob*

Fire pits are okay in any temperature.

That giraffe is totally looking at you taking that picture like "what...yeah...I'm tall....and?"

Hahaha. The bar is always one of my favorite places too.

Dinner looks tasty and scrumptious.

First of all - welcome back. Can't wait to hear all about it.

I know - talk about a 180 - right? But he is pretty psyched about going back. He needs a happy place and I think he finally found it.

OMG - I love that song. I can hear it in my head. That little kid's voice - sniff sniff. That always chokes me up.

So I had good intentions to do an update tonight, but it didn't happen. I ordered a new amp for my acoustic electric guitar. I couldn't help it. It was one of those Black Friday deals on amazon. So, of course, I had to try it out tonight and I wasted a ton of time playing my guitar.

So - tomorrow - I promise. I gotta rap this TR up!

Hi there

Your report title caught my eye and I have read right through your trip report. It is great reading and I love how you just get on with it when things get "testy". Nothing like a liquid refreshment to put things back in perspective.

Your pictures are fantastic and I am really enjoying getting my Disney fix thru your report. Its wonderful how you guys take the time to write up your trips and it gives those of us who live far away such joy. Thank you

Looking forward to the rest and keeping up with your future reports too.

Disneykiwi!!!!!!! Thanks so much for reading my entire TR. I am honored.

First - I have to tell you that I actually visited New Zealand 20 years ago. Yup - almost 20 years to the date. It was the most fabulous country ever. I was enchanted. We stayed on the north island because our friends (K&T - from Daytona Beach) where actually in NZ during their sail around the world. They stayed in your lovely country for 6 months. We met up with them in Aukland. I loved it there and if I ever get a chance to go back to NZ I will. The country was so clean, the scenery was outstanding, and everyone was so so so friendly.

I am so glad you enjoyed my TR. I quickly found that the TR forum was my favorite forum on the boards. I love reading about other people's trips to Disney - so fun!

Thanks. I am going to be wrapping this up soon, but after that I will start my October F&W TR.

Sparks Fly and Good Bye!

In my last update we had just finished dinner at Sanaa. It was our last day in the world and our last few hours before we needed to hit the hay and head on home.

So what were we to do?

Well, the only park that was opened was MK. It was a possibility, but the more I thought about it, the more I decided it would be fun to watch Wishes from the Poly Beach. Why the heck not? We had transportation.

So off we went to the Poly. We still had some time before Wishes started, so we wondered over to the pool area. I told Denny I wanted to find a quiet pool and check it out.

How many quiet pools does the Poly have? Is it one or two?

Here's the one we went to



Seriously, how pretty this is pool and doesn't it make you just want to jump in?



I can totally see swimming by the light of a tiki torch



From the pool we followed a little path that took us to that little look out area along the water. I know it has a name. I just can't remember what its called. I know I have seen wedding ceremonies held there. Ugh - help me out here.

Anyway - it looked like the Contemporary was right around the corner.



And I could see the castle off in the distance



I didn't really care for the view from this area so we moved back to the beach.

To the left - Narcoossee's



The GF



We got situated just in time for the sparks to fly.

POW!

Hearts













































Wow - I can see the castle again



Applause Applause. Wishes was wonderful. Clearly its not as good as a holiday version like NY Eve or 4th of July, but it was good all the same.

One Wishes was over we decided to head back to the villa and start our packing.

Yeah - I know - Boo! But all things come to an end and this trip was one of them.

It didn't take too long until we ended up here



It was time to go pack. Blech

This was on one of the doors near our villa



We mostly packed before we went to bed. And before you know it, it was time to get up and moving towards the door.

I did go for one final run and then hurried back to do my final packing. that's when I realized that my "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" was MIA. I remembered I had left it at the quiet pool while I was doing the cottage photoshot. I went back to the pool, but naturally my book was no where to be found.

I stopped at the front desk to check the lost & found, but the l&f man had not arrived yet. And we needed to go. Our flight was at 10:30 am. I'm not a big fan of early return flights, but Air Tran was the one who bumped the time up. And, quite honestly, I only had so many choices when flying into Lehigh Valley.

I did take some pictures of the room before we vacated.







Does anyone use these? It looks like it would break with the weight of my big suitcase.







I think the kitchenette is so cute



The safe was a little beat up



I asked Denny to take a picture of how I was feeling on our departure day



Somehow I managed to have enough time to take some outside pics



This was literally right outside our door.

Spoiler alert - Cynthia and I stayed on the top floor of the center area in October. It was awesome.





Bye Luna Park! I'll be back!
