So sorry to hear about your mom's cat. Our furry companions are such an important part of our lives! Thoughts will be with you and her tomorrow.

Oh I love that Poly quiet pool! I'd love to be there RIGHT NOW!

So pretty with the Tiki Torches. Soemthing about a Tiki Torch just makes me happy. Really happy.

Nice fireworks pictures! I think I do want to try this on NYE, whether the family will go for it is another story.

I do, all the time actually but usually inside a closet if I'm not unpacking. They will hold quite a bit!

Sorry to hear about your mother's cat. We lost our cat 2 years ago at the age of 16. Those small creatures have a way of creeping into our hearts.

I wish I was at the Poly right now, too! So glad you like the pictures. I am very glad we decided to go watch Wishes from the beach instead of in the park. It was a perfect evening.

I definitely mourned my book on the way home.

I wasn't very familiar with the Boardwalk either. But I found out that it is one of my favorite resorts because of all the little hidden places and all the fun decorative pieces.

I know what you mean. I always have a hard time wrapping up my TRs, so I'll do a couple of recap updates. I think it helps piece the whole trip together a bit better.

The view is very nice, but as you can imagine, I really cropped the crap out of those pictures. My lens is a 50/250, so a longer lens would have helped. Pictures aside, it is a really nice place to sit quietly and watch Wishes. It's just an entirely different perspective.

At least you were able to get another copy & finish it later on. I'm working to convince a friend she needs to give it a try!
I couldn't stop thinking about that book when I finished it. It took me awhile to get into it, but once I did - WoW!!!!!!! Awesome!

The Boardwalk is a really, really cool resort. I definitely recommend it. I just love all the details because of my childhood memories of the Jersey shore. The location is fabulous. I didn't think I would like being in the middle of everything, but it didn't feel like that at all. It was great!

Thank you! I really did enjoy spending our last evening there. I think it was a good choice. I would love to see one of the holiday Wishes from there.

It is definitely my favorite Epcot resort, although I have never stayed at the Yacht club. I just love it there.

OK - so where does DD want to stay? Inquiring minds want to know. The nice thing about Disney is you just can't go wrong no matter what you decide!

I looked for it in the gift shop and in the airport. No go! It was a bummer, fo sure. And then I didn't really get back into it until our next vacation in August. But once I got into it again I could NOT put that book down. So good!

It was an uneventful flight. I actually liked getting home in the middle of the day. Most of the time I come home in the evening and then I feel super rushed in the morning. A lunch time arrival gave us plenty of time of to get home, unpack, and unwind!

Great Wishes pictures! I especially liked the ones where you could see the colors of the fireworks reflected in the water!

Its always a bummer to leave, and an especial bummer to have to pay those stupid 417 tolls twice!

Looking forward to hearing about your next trip!

You can say that again. I always have to have another trip planned. If not I get so bummed. And if I don't have one planned, I start planning one a few weeks after I get home!

The only thing that would have made it better would have been a mai tai from Pat's favorite bartender. Seriously, it really was a fun, laid back way to spend the evening.

It takes a while to get into it and its pretty confusing in the beginning, but then it just reaches this point where it takes off and you can't put it down. I think it took me about a hundred pages to really start enjoying it and then it kept getting better and better.

Yeah maybe - if you are really lucky! I just loved that whole Boardwalk area. I was so happy staying there in October. It was great. Not that I don't still love BCV, but BWV was pretty awesome too!

I know you are a big Boardwalk fan and I am totally with you on that one. It's a great location. I loved it for F&W.

Well, no matter where you stay I really hope that you are able to go in Feb or March. I would like to try a March trip. I am trying to visit during every month of the year.

MomToPrincePhillip. Thanks for joining in! I am so glad you enjoyed my TR.

Definitely request a high floor for your standard view. Are you staying in a studio or a larger villa. I think the Standard view is really a great bargain.

That is a wonderful way to get pictures. Plus the desserts look amazing. Glad you like my pictures. Watching Wishes from the Poly beach is really a nice way to see them.

Leaving right after Wishes is a terrible time to leave. I hate it too, so I have to agree with your DH. Not of fan of the scooters, I take it. I'm not a fan either but I like to think that people wouldn't be using them unless they really needed too. I just don't like when they load on the buses because of the time it takes, but then I figure the person on the scooter rather not be using it.

It's really good. The characters are developed really well and the plot is very intricate. It doesn't end the way one would think. It really takes off towards the end. Totally action packed.

What is it about Air Tran that they always change their flight times. I know that every time I have flow them they adjust the time. It's weird, but Southwest doesn't do that.

It would be wonderful f you ever do come back - you must come further down the North Island to us here in Wgtn - we will look after you. That could be cool - a Dismeet in NZ
I really wanted to get to Wellington during our trip, but we ended up mostly doing day trips. Actually, we went to the very tip of the north island, which was very cool. We stayed there a couple nights. I wish I could remember the names of the places we visited, but I would have to look at a map. It was so long ago and it was pre digital camera. I just remember that every where we went was awesome.

It's a totally different view. It's much farther than the Contemporary, but its just so relaxing from the beach. I love it.

You really didn't like Wishes from the Contemp? I think its great the first time, but after that its a little less spectacular.

I would love to stay at the Poly. It's on my bucket list.

Ooohhh, good choice watching Wishes from the Poly beach. It's a sad state of affairs that even having stayed there, I have not done that. We'll just put it on my neverending list of things that I want to do.

Great pictures. One day I will watch the fireworks at MK on NYE too. Like you said, I'm sure they're far superior to regular Wishes.

Boo. Leaving. It's the worst part.

Uh oh, an MIA book? I hate that!

Seriously, I am always afraid of those suitcase things! I'm with you, I'm paranoid that I'm going to break them with the sheer weight of all my crap!

Woo hoo! We still have some more updates to look forward to.

Don't get me wrong about the scooters. My brother lost his legs in Nam, so I don't begrudge honest use of them. The people that were pushing the crowd that night had the scooters loaded with packages & were in late 20s. DH had seen them earlier without the scooters. Rudest people you'd ever want to see!!

Love the fireworks pictures! I've always enjoyed Wishes from the Poly beach. It's cool to see the fireworks reflected on the water.

There's no way to make leaving any fun, is there? It always stinks. Thankfully you had more trips on the horizon!

I use the suitcase thingee too, if it's a stay of just a couple of days and not worth fully unpacking. I have to hang up shirts and pants though, to prevent wrinkles, 'cause the iron is only coming out in an emergency (ie. an intruder).

Thanks Pat. After arranging to go visit my mom yesterday afternoon, she decided she wasn't ready to put the cat down afterall. I understand, but on the other hand I know it has to happen soon. I really don't even want to call my mom today because I don't want to hear an update on the cat. She's dying and I feel so horribly bad for the whole situation.

Thank you so much Dee. Unfortunately, my mom backed out. She just couldn't do it. But the cat is not eating anything. Nothing. And I am afraid that she really can't wait much longer. I am afraid to call today because she will give me an update on the cat and there's really no reason to. She isn't going to improve.

I have to agree. Tiki Torches do really set the mood. That pool looked really nice and nice and big for a quiet pool. I am quite the quiet pool fan and this one looked lovely.

Well, I wouldn't want to be in a park on NYE, so this looks like a much better option if you ask me. I know the Poly Beach gets crowded, but judging by Pat's pictures, the show looks amazing. It was definitely be my pick for ringing the New Years in!

But isn't it great that you immediately clicked with the place and you made your decision. I think that's fabulous. I can't blame you one bit. If I had known how much I was going to love it there I would have looked at the BWV resales much more seriously. But who knew?

Yes - they do creep into your heart and the fact that they don't understand what's wrong with them is so heart breaking. Anyway, my mom backed out on putting the cat to sleep yesterday, but I imagine she will change her mind in the next day or so.

Thank you! It was pretty to cool to see how the red fireworks turned the water red. I really enjoyed watching and taking pictures from the beach. It was a great place to spend our last evening.

Just like adding insult to injury, that's for sure. The thing is he has driven back to the airport a bunch of times. So what the......

I think it was a good choice, too!

And you just need to add it to your Disney bucket list. There is always another reason to plan a return trip!!!!!

Far superior. I have seen pictures and its amazing. It's like the fireworks are being set off brom 5 or 6 more places around the park. Really amazing!

Yup. I guess I should go kindle, but I am so old school. I really like something about holding a book and bending the pages.

Exactly! and that particular one looked like it might definitely yeild under the weight of my 50lb suitcase.

Yes you do! I need to start working on them now because these need to be preplanned!

I'm sure it would hold my stuff, but that particular one looked like something my grandmother might have and it had me a little worried.

I have heard that there are a group of people who rent them for food and wine specifically to be obnoxious, so your group does sound a little fishy. Seriously, why would you need them one night and not the other? That makes no sense. I can't see wasting the money on something you don't need and making a mockery out of someone who does need a scooter.

It was perfect for our last night. I loved that we (well I) decided that would be the plan. It is really cool to see the fireworks in the water and the last couple minutes of the show were just amazing!

Leaving stinks for everyone. So many great memories, but so hard to leave it all behind. I dread the day when I don't have another trip planned. sniff sniff.

An intruder I have to agree with that. There is NO way I am ironing on vacation, although Denny usually does because he literally throws everything into a suitcase. What a mess! I am far too Type A for that.

Looks like y'all really had a lovely last night! The fireworks are so pretty and that's a great way to end a trip.

I love your last pictures of Boardwalk too. I keep praying that we'll get in there for next October.
