Pam - you outdid yourself on the pictures in this update. They are stunning. I love the one of your mom on the bridge because it looks like you are taking it through a tunnel. Very cool!

Nice job. You picked a great time to take pictures. Everything is so empty!

We are going to be there next week, and I have to know, how/where did they get that AKL bag with the Mickey heads on it (behind the paper bag)? I love it! I really want it and have to know how/where to get it! Thanks!!!!!

Pam, the pictures are so beautiful and it is making me miss it so much. I also take pictures around the resorts, but you had stuff in there I don't recall seeing before. Maybe time for an adventure in the resort, seeing all the art and artifacts there.

Great updates!
I know, it's ironic thankfully it was never one of my favorite things, so it's not that hard to stay away.

You'd think Florida would have fabulous seafood. Do they sell everything out of state?

Thank you I think the resort is just so beautiful.

She is too funny sometimes, she'll just strike a pose and ask for her picture to be taken

this all happened before 9:30, so either everyone was already at the parks or not awake yet.

That was the DVC gift. I didn't see them at the store, I'm pretty sure the only way to get one is to stay at AKV using points. The only problem is I know they rotate the gifts every now and then. Where are you staying next week?

Thank you

I felt like I was in a museum, the items they display are so neat. And of course there were many many more that I didn't take photos of.

Sounds like an excellent plan! You must get back there soon

The first time we stayed, they gave us cologne and perfume, in these really neat carved stone looking bottles, The second time we were there we got a beaded giraffe (that is still my favorite), and the last time we got wooden carved pens (ball point pens).

I think we are planning a resort only visit and this will be a great time to explore the resort. Maybe do Kidani and Jambo House...

I had remembered reading you got a giraffe, and I was so hoping I would get one this time. The cooler was nice though, very helpful for taking drinks to the pool.
