APs - so exciting! We're upgrading our 10 day MYW package tickets (with free dining) to APs in November! First time for us too! I'm hoping it works out smoothly. If I have calculated correctly, , after we apply the Disney Visa rewards credit we have built up, we should only have to pay about $100! That's kind of a no-brainer, right? Which means, there should be at least one more, but very possibly 2 or 3 more Disney vacations for us over the next year! I'm still undecided about TIW. I mean, since we won't be getting the dining plan for any other trips, I think it would make sense. But we may wait until our next trip for that...still not sure. At the very least we'd be able to use it for alcohol on this trip. We will be there for F&W afterall

I would have also totally photo-stalked the wedding party! Their location looked so pretty!

Where'd-ya-eat? Where'd-ya-eat????

YAY! Finally to WDW! I can't wait to read where you went first. Congrats on your AP and TiW card! Jealous!

Sorry you are back to work already. I hope you have a great school year! (I don't have to go back officially until November, thanks to my maternity leave.)

Congrats on the AP. I am so jealous. The wedding stalking cracked me up. Last time we stayed at BWV there was a wedding reception in the little grass area right outside our room. I definitely stalked, but did not even think to take pictures.

Enjoyed a great March 2011 trip staying at the Boardwalk.
Enjoyed a great December 2011 trip to our home resort VWL with a short visit to see Harry Potter.
Enjoyed a great October 2012 trip at BLT.
Enjoyed a last minute surprise trip to Disneyland February 2013.
Enjoyed a great October 2013 trip to Saratoga Springs with our daughter and her college friends

I used to love Are You Afraid of the Dark. There was this one episode where the Mowry sisters turned into chameleons or something...? That I watched a million times.

YAY Annual Pass! You got a fantastic deal on all those tickets. Kudos for Disney giving such great military discounts!

I don't blame you at all for stalking the wedding...Especially since it was a Disney Wedding.

Hmm.. I'm guessing you ate at either Earl of Sandwich or Wolfgang Puck's...

Well, now I'm freaked out. I HATED Are You Afraid of the Dark?....cause, yeah, I was totally afraid of the dark. Was? Okay, AM. I know that the stories were hokey, but I still couldn't bring myself to watch, just in case one really spooked me. Just the opening was spooky. ::shivers::

Jealous of your AP! I keep thinking that if I get one, Brandon will HAVE to let me take more trips! Brilliant!

Oh my back to work already? I know you all ended before us but that gave me a little panic attack -- I am so not ready for the staff to return! So much to do first!! (really want to put the smilies with the hair that stands up in here, but I am on the mobile app and have no idea how to make anything but a regular smile...) I hope that you have an excellent opening of school and that the year is terrific :-)

Wonderful deal on the park passes and well deserved. Thank-you to both you and John!

I love seeing the weddings while we are here -- we usually see one somewhere on the Boardwalk -- always so pretty.

We are here now and have had a wonderful first day and a half. We had dinner at Artist Point last night and if you have not been I highly recommend it! Was sooooo good (and had an AP discount ---- I love having an AP this year, just felt so good knowing it was there :-) I bought my son one on Tuesday because we are here for 10 days and then he is returning in October with his grandparents, so now I am already planning how to work in another trip next summer before it expires! )

Awesome prices for the Tickets (the Military community deserves them)! I'd rather not discuss what I just paid I used to love Are You Afraid of the Dark? I must admit, that the theme song used to freak me out and more than once I turned it off when it came to the swing and the clown (I think I remember that right).

Downtown Disney is one of our favorite places...EoS, WPE, Paradiso 37, D-Street...need I say more? Looking forward to your first Disney meal

OMG I love Disney weddings! They were getting ready for one at the Beach Club one morning, and the bride was so beautiful! And I loved the bridesmaids dresses, they were this pretty light pink and short, so perfect for the Beach Club...yeah I stalked them for a little while! I didn't take any pictures though!

Yay for AP's! I'm so sad I won't be getting one more use out of mine. I hope I will be an AP holder again, it really does feel like you're a member or some special club or something!

Oooh first Disney meal of the trip, where did you guys go? I'm gonna guess WPE?

Hope your school year is off to a good start! We go back Sept 4, students start Sept 5th...but I am wishing summer would last forever!

I am going to guess you eat at Earl of Sandwich!

Random story: I have been stalking an ADR at Le Cellier since 180 days- we've never eaten there. Then I chatted with some friends who have eaten there and read your TR and others where the food (specifically the soup! haha) was raved about, and I became determined to get that elusive ADR. My hard work paid off today (18 days out!!!) and I got an ADR. So excited. So I am chatting with my ten-year-old son about it, and our conversation goes like this:

Me: "So you get this delicious pretzel bread and order cheddar cheese soup. And you dip the bread into the soup-"
Aidan: "And it gives you MAGICAL MYSTICAL POWERS?"

Seriously? What a wise guy! Can't he just embrace and appreciate my Disney food obsession?

TWIN!!! I'm all caught up and GUESS WHAT? I actually read your updates on the plane last night! While I was waiting I opened up the updates on my iPod in separate pages so I could read them and it made me a lot happier!

Let's see if I can remember what I wanted to say...

Springhill Suites are nice, but they're not Disney! It must suck to be so close yet so far, even for one night!

Where on earth is Shades of Green? Like seriously, I saw signs for it all week staying at an MK resort and I don't even know what it looks like!

HOORAY FOR YOUR ANNUAL PASS! Omg jealous. I can't believe I don't even know when I'm next going to Disney. Like I know I got back less than 24 hours ago but aghhhh I miss it so much.

Your elevator sounds so terrifying hahah. My sister probably would have had a panic attack. Anyways YAYYY for Disney fun officially beginning!

Yay for a new trip report! I'm excited to read about all the details with John and your mom. You're so adorable that you have a cupcake rating system!

I've wanted to read The Help for a while, but I never had the opportunity to do so. I hope to read it within the next few years, haha. I wish I could read in the car the way you do. I'd definitely get carsick.

HAHA, your reaction to the energy drink is hilarious. I can't drink that stuff because I'm supposed to avoid caffeine due to heart palpitations. I always thought they tasted gross based on what I've smelled off my kids when they have Monster when we go to the roller rink in October for a field trip.

The hotel sounds pretty good for being a non-Disney one. I'd freak at that elevator though. That's the one thing I don't like about living in an apartment! I don't know what I'd do if I ever got stuck in an elevator!

That really is such an awesome deal on so many tickets AND an annual pass for you! It really does feel like such a secret society! It's nice knowing that we can technically go back whenever we want ... well, at least until the middle of April!
