Finished up with the Dessert Party ... I'm still full this morrning!!! DD left first thing this morning so I'm on my own for the next 5 days. Moving over to OKW tomorrow .... not to sure how I'll like it there but it's worth a try.

Typing this on my Kindle so that's it for now. Have a great day .... know I will!!!
Great to hear from you! I sent you a PM, too a while back...

You are one fast moving resort changer. It's like you're in the witness relocation program and can't stay put too long

Does OKW still have the largest square footage?

Unfortunately, the buffalo DH and I had in August wasn't delicious - it was served pre-cut and there were many inedible pieces - just bad luck that night I suppose.

Your DBF is in for one great surprise when he first walks into the lobby

I was planning too, but then just wanted a really good steak, so stuck with what I know.

Next time!

Just back from WL and we had a wonderful time! I will post pictures in the next day or so. The resort was wonderful, but I will say that we had some irritation due to them testing the fire alarms. They started on Wednesday and left a note saying it would be from one until three.

We arrived back to the hotel around one-thirty and the alarm was going strong. We quickly changed because being in the from made me physically nauseous because the noise was so piercing. We went down to the pool, and all of the CMs were telling us that it never lasted so long. At three it was STILL going off! We were told that it would definitely stop at three thirty. We had five-thirty reservations at Californial Grill, so really needed to shower and change.

Luckily it did stop right at three thirty. When we got back from our dinner there was a Mickey balloon in our room. I assume they gave them to everyone since we never gave our name or room number. Though I suppose the CMs on the Club Level might have known us by then.

So, all was good... Until Friday. We spent a short day at MK due to it being our last day (left on Saturday) and our twins being worn out. They actually fell asleep in their stroller on the ferry. Got back to the resort and the alarm was going off again! They hadn't finished testing and said it would be going until three again! We complained right to a manager. He was very understanding. I mean we were understanding too. We realize they have to test these things, but two days in one week where you can't use your room for the entire afternoon us unacceptable. They comp'd us half a nights stay, which I thought was a good compromise.

Only 4 more days and we are on our way!

WDWKook - Thanks for the message.

Sitting here tonight it is hard not to be too excited. Only 4 days to work this week and then it is off to my very favorite place

I am so going to try and do a trip report this time. I say that everytime, but never seem to get them written.

Wow, that is horrible. And really from1-3 is an awful time to test it, when many return from the parks to nap and rest.... Augh, hope it is all tested at this point....

So in twelve days we arrive for another visit at WL, our 2nd time CL! I haven't put in a room request yet... Should I just email the IPO? I also don't know what to request. Last time our room was facing the courtyard, which I want but it was only three rooms down from the lounge area. Again close to the lounge but do I want to be there again? I don't think my son wants bunk beds... Suggestions?

I am totally freaking out about packing for this trip. Usually I freak out, but this time add in the fact that we are moving 10 days before we leave and I am about to melt down.
The only light at the end of the tunnel is that we will soon be relaxing at the OFC after a long day of rides and fun!!

Looking forward to our trip right after Thanksgiving. WL is our favorite WDW resort & it's been 6 long years since we last stayed there. This trip we're in a 1bed. villa for 2 weeks! That's the longest we will have ever stayed in 1 room at WDW.

I'm thinking that since we have a washer/dryer in our room I may not have to pack as many clothes. Of course that time of year the weather may vary & I might need to pack a larger variety of clothing.

Been planning this trip for 2 yrs now & seeing the pics on this thread is making me sooooo homesick for WL. Just 4 1/2 weeks now, hope they don't go by too slowly.
