Six more days here in Seattle (Tacoma actually!) -- then I take a red-eye home to ATL, have a day to catch up on life at home, then will be on my way to WDW for "Food & Wine & Good Friends & Good Times"!!!


I drove to the Seattle Waterfront yesterday. Sad to see all the cruise ships have already headed south, but we saw some amazing private yachts in the Marina! Would have loved to have boarded the yacht "Joey"!

We also walked around Pike Place. I ended up getting my Starbucks from a shop down the street as the "original" Starbucks had a line out the building! A bit busier than the last time I was there in 2010!


Wishing you all a lovely Sunday. The weather here is gorgeous (60s & 70s). Sad to see so much brown though as the Seattle area is in a drought also.

Thanks to all of you for the great info on this thread!

We are staying at AKV (renting points) for the second year in a row. I do have some questions for the experts here:

1. Are there lifejackets available at the pool for small children?
2. Do you know if coconut milk is available in the resort store?

Thank you! We can't wait to go. I think this might be the trip that convinces me to buy in!

Congratulations on your trip!

Yes on the lifejackets.

I have no idea about the coconut milk though.

Oooohhh, I hope it is, that would be wonderful!

Yes friend, I think that is an excellent idea. And you can immediately use your points after buying.

Congrats on your stay!! As for the lifejackets, I'd say yes, but how small are we talking about? Toddler and up, yes, I think so, younger, not sure!!

As for the coconut milk, I haven't seen it, but there is a publix right around the corner from the lodge, if you have a car, I'm sure you can go get some. If you don't have a car, there are 2 grocery services you can use, they will deliver groceries to the resort. garden grocer and wegoshop, you can find info here regarding both, just use the searchbox!!






WHOOPSIE - sorry Pam, I guess we were answering at the same time!!

Too bad Flat Brandi and Flat David can not taste all the wonderful food and drink their fill there...

Maybe you can spill a little tequila and food on us by the end so we look like we were eating and drinking...




Thanks for the video, it just makes me want to be there even more.

I'm sad today.... The voices of reason have spoken (my DH and BFF). We are postponing our trip until January.

I'm just not physically up to it yet, and even if I was, going the week before Christmas is too much for us. I know they are right, but that doesn't mean I have to LIKE it!!!!

Sooooo, our new dates are TBD.
