Sounds like you and James had lots of fun while the girls were being all fancy at the GF! That tea looks like such a nice way to spend the afternoon! (Especially the pastry part! )

Geat update about the Tea! The ladies look like they truly enjoyed it. Katharina and I just went to an Afternoon Tea at a hotel in Berlin to celebrate her birthday - it really was our experience at the GF three years ago that got us started. It's an experience we really love!

(Accent on the second syllable.) We decided that it was a Swahili word meaning a tool to allow someone access through a door: maroomkie.
I like it!

Looks like everyone really enjoyed the afternoon. It seems like you picked a good day to stay away from the parks and got a little bit of a break from the weather to enjoy the afternoon.

Yay, an update. It's like Christmas all year round! Oh my goodness, that tea looks fantastic. I wish my daughter was in to such things, but I'm pretty sure she'd rather be boiled in oil than have to sit through a fancy tea. Just my luck.

"If you told me, I forgot...is that where you stayed? Just recently?"

It was Saratoga Springs and OMG, never again! I adore Disney, all the resort theming and such...but this resort was weird.

We stayed in the Carousel section and it was such a long walk that bell services drove us to our room. That should have been a signal right there. There are several sections and several buildings per section...no big deal - Caribbean Beach is set up much the same way. However, at CB each section had its own quiet pool and laundry and at SSR we had to walk half a mile to the Paddock for the pool and laundry. It was cold enough while we were down there that the pool issue we only had to deal with once, but the hauling the laundry back across the resort at 9pm at night had me cussing under my breath.

Then the next issue was getting around. We had to make a stop at the main building to discover where the laundry was and then we discovered that there is no way other than walking to get from the main building back to our section of the resort. There is no internal bus (CB has one that continually runs the loop) and the bus driver told us that the only way we could do it would be to take the Downtown Disney bus over to DD and then back again.

Um. No. The walk is long but that is longer.

My kiddo mentioned on the way back that the resort was nice and all, but the layout was rather bizarre. (Her words exactly.)

All in all, the theming was lovely, but we prefer the tropical theming of Kidani, Jambo and Caribbean Beach. I'd love to stay at the Poly, but I can't see being able to afford it!

After acknowledging what a nightmare this chapter was to officiate, the Rules Committee is taking the easy way out and awarding this chapter’s point to Marv, for the 3 obvious ones. Additionally, they are awarding Eagle Eye points to Marv, Pat, and Dee for the spoon reflections and the window reflection. There is still one more out there that no one has mentioned yet.

Updated scores:
Marvin - 11 Judy-sighting wins, 5 Eagle Eye points
Pat - 6 Judy-sighting wins, 2 Eagle Eye points
Mark - 4 Judy-sighting wins
Dee - 4 Judy-sighting wins, 1 Eagle Eye point
Rosie - 3 Judy-sighting wins, 1 Eagle Eye point
Dan - 1 Judy-sighting win, 3 Eagle Eye points
Kelly - 3 Judy-sighting wins
Magdalene - 2 Judy-sighting wins
Katharina - 2 Judy-sighting wins
Jenn (elphie101) - 1 Judy-sighting win, First Subscriber Honors!
Tanya - 1 Judy-sighting win
Molly - 1 Judy-sighting win
Kathy - 1 Judy-sighting win
Mary Ellen - 1 Judy-sighting win
MissLiz - 1 Judy-sighting win

You did. With all the morning rain, it wasn’t a surefire guess so props to you.

I thought it stunk. I brought that mug all the way down there, passing the gift shop, the only other drink station mind you, and then find that it’s closed.

We did all right hanging out at the resort. And it worked out pretty well for the girls to do this indoor activity on a kind of yucky day.

We made the most of a less-than-spectacular day, weather-wise. I forgot to put it in the chapter, but at some point we ran into some people coming back to the resort from the parks and they said that they had a great time -- no wait for any rides. Maybe if I remember, Ill put that in the next update.

Maybe youll have to find a different relative to take -- a niece or cousin or somebody.

Wow, thats good information! And they talk about the long hallways at Kidani and BWV&sounds like there are some long walks at SSR that dont involve hallways. We liked the interior of the SSR suites when my SiL stayed in one a couple of trips ago, but I dont know that we got a sense of what it would be like to stay there&distances to various things like you described. There are several other resorts that I think well try before SSR. Thanks for the info.

I posted that one in my guess of six Judy's......nine if counting the spoons.

I HAVE, however, found the missing reflection. Will PM Glenn to confirm so as not to spoil it for anyone else who wants to look further.......

And for those who want to still look, as happened to me you will have ZERO doubt that you found it.......when you actually find it!!!

Definitely one of the better ones that didn't get found to start with, and one that will get NO disagreement with the Rules Committee.......even from Dan and Rosie..........
