Thanks everybody! Yesterday was long but wonderful. Woke up at 4:20 for the 7:25 flight. It wasn't full so we had plenty of room. We waited less than a minute for the DME which was perfect. A very hot day at Hollywood. We left for some pool time at 6:00 and didn't get back for EMHs. They actually bought 7 day passes so we can do three parks 2 times. They seem to be enjoying themselves. It has a much different feel than any other trip. Still nice, but different. We met some absolutely lovely fellow DVCers from Wales in the hot tub last night.

Today is another scorcher so hopefully I won't get too grouchy. I absolutely hate being uncomfortably hot. We're going to AK and then Coronado Springs for dinner.

Hope you all have a fabulous day

Thanks Elin

We're waiting in R & M right now, and then will head out.

I hope school goes well

Sounds like you have off to a good start. Yay for getting 7 day passes. Now you can spend two days at Epcot if you like to. Have a wonderful time.

Yesterday was much more relaxed. Everything at AK was a walk on, it was so wonderful. Came back and had some pool time before heading to dinner. The plan was to go to the Pepper Market so we needed to do some bus traveling. Well R & M took ages to get ready and we didn't leave until after 9. And then got caught in a deluge when we transferred at Hollywood. And then they were so cold at dinner they didn't want to eat anything. Ugh. We would not have encountered that rain if they had been ready to go an hour earlier... Oh well, it was still a wonderful day.

Heading to MK in a few minutes. Relaxed at the pool for a few hours this morning already. That was a nice start to the day.

I thought so too. M played a dangerous game and found a 7 day pass on eBay for only $240. I was worried it wouldn't work, but everything worked perfectly. So since she had that, it only made sense for R to get a 7 day also.

Well hopefully, you don't have many more like that, and you all can enjoy the trip and dinner....

That is kind of scary but I guess if you get from a reputable seller you might be ok.... I have never seen/heard anyone buying them on ebay before.

I am sorry that you got wet and that it spoiled dinner, but I am glad that most of the day went well.

When she was doing her planning I told her of the reputable online sites but discouraged her from eBay since you really never know. She still went that route and then the ticket got lost in the mail. It was sitting at another post office for two weeks. She went through some stress that's for sure. Thankfully it all worked out.

The person selling had apparently gone on vacation but never went to the park. I thought it was an odd scenario.

Yesterday was almost 100% perfect. R had a bit of a grumpy spat when the CMs at Pecos Bills rang cowbells for his anniversary button. He was actually going to leave the park. I was not pleased at this drama. After taking a smoke break he came back with a better attitude and ended up staying for the day. The longest wait we had was 10 minutes for Stitch, The Laugh Floor, and Pooh. Everything else was a walk on, and we did practically every ride in the park. It couldn't have been more perfect. The new Fantasyland area is shaping up beautifully. Discovered Tomorrowland is a great place to watch the fireworks. Sat on a nice bench with a perfect view. Picked up National Treasure in the shop and had a relaxing rest of the evening.

Today was a planned relaxation day which turned out well since its been raining for the last couple hours. R & M have still enjoyed the water and I've been lounging under an umbrella and catching up in my journal. Had breakfast at Boma which everyone enjoyed.We'll head to a park later on if it stops raining.
