Ninja Mom I am sorry to hear of your loss, my mother has been waging battle with cancer for many years now and is not ready to quit the fight. This week we found out that my Father In Law is in stage 4. We will get through this.

Dee also if you could put us on your list for Dec. 2-6 as we will be at BC to celebrate DS birithday.

I sent pics from my telephone to Dee and perhaps she'll post them.

Service and food the best at WDW as far as I'm concerned.

For me it isn't about any specific details, it is just the entire atmosphere. It is such a calm and comfy room. All the chaos of Disney stops at the door of Artist Pointe.

Like all of us, I do love the chaos of Disney, but is also nice to find that little oasis of calm in the midst of it.

We've eaten there a few times. The food is always yummy and the service is top notch.

I'll try to get those posted in the morning. Just back from the soft opening of Ben's show.

It went great! Tomorrow is official opening night.

NinjaMom, I am so sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing your journey with us. I'm sure your mom loved being part of "that" family and it helped her through her last days. Looking forward to hearing all about your family trip to WDW!

Thanks to every one for all the kind condolences. Everyone in the family feels a lot better now that my Mom is at peace. It occurred to me today that we did a lot of our mourning while Mom was getting sicker. She really helped us through that by talking to us and telling us how much she loved and appreciated us during her last days. I know I feel like a tremendous burden has been lifted.

But of anyone had a good standard view location and view could you let me know? Have any pics from balcony?

At first I thought to request high floor near BC end. No roof view.

Now I'm just thinking to ask high floor, no roof, best view possible!

I know I'm not the only one out there who agonizes over rooms
What about requesting ground floor? You'll be sure to get a patio (I think....) and that gator they spotted last summer was only hanging out in the lagoon by the BCV because he must have been staying on points.

I don't know how many people are going or if you were planning on staying onsite or not, but we went with my husband's family several years ago and rented a house and condo in Windsor Hills. If you would like the owner's info, message me.

Even though it's a kid-centered trip, make sure you have time for a Grey Goose or Gran Marnier Slushie!
Today I went to the Disney outlet store and cleaned them OUT for my Niece and Nephew! My 3 year old Niece is doing Bippity Boppity Boutique so I hooked her up with a hugely discounted Sleeping beauty princess gown. My niece is funny because she doesn't care which princess it is as long as the dress is PINK! I was texting pictures of the dresses in the outlet store to my Sister in Law, who was at home, and she told me my Niece was playing dress up and coming over to her and telling her her new name was something like Princess Lucinda.

I got my Nephew some cute Jake and the Neverland Pirates and Spiderman t-shirts and jammies so he doesn't feel left out. (can Spiderman be cute???) I also got fleece jackets on sale for $12 for all the grand kids that were personalized with their names for free on the Disney Store web site. We'll park them all in front of the castle wearing their fleeces (or "fleas as my nephew says) for a family portrait.

We are staying at POFQ so no condo. I thought staying on property would be better because everyone can go back when they want. Half the kids are teens and the other half are munchkins so I'm betting on park transportation to keep everybody on their own schedule when we are not glued together.

We made dining reservations so here's the line up:

Monday lunch at Hollywood and Vine with June from Disney's Little Einsteins, Jake the Neverland pirate, Handy Manny and Special Agent Oso. I have no idea who these dudes are but it sounds like fun to me!

Tuesday we are at that heck hole known as Chef Mickeys. I'm planning on amping up the fun by starting a food fight with the kids that run around unattended at this buffet ; )

Wednesday we are at Princess Central, also known as Akershus. This will be my Niece's Bippity Boppity Boutique day. We've been there before and we liked it, so we are happy to go back and my boys are happy because they can eat in peace and not be on the Princess meet and greet hot seat like they were before when the 5 of us went. LOL!!!

Thursday we are at the Garden Grill in the land pavilion at EPCOT with Chip and Dale. This is new for all of us so we are looking forward to it, especially since it's not something we would consider doing with Teens.

Friday we are at the Biergarten in Germany where all the adults will get drunk and the kids will escort our wobbly butts to the buses. This is the day when the older folks plan on getting pushed around the parks in strollers with the little ones doing all of the pushing. Turn about is fair play I say!

Saturday I am thinking Rain Forest Cafe. I've never been but I heard it's noisy in there. My dad is hard of hearing so we plan on seating him right next to anything in there that is roaring or burping. While I'm thinking of it we should plan on putting the teen boys down that end as well. They can get pretty growly and burpy, not to mention gassy, and crabby, as well as stinky, dirty and tired. Hey! I think I've just come up with a set of substitute seven dwarfs!

So planning for this February trip is really putting a wag in my tail. My December Beach Club trip is also right around the corner. That trip is already planned out and as soon as I finish planing the February trip I can get my head back into the December trip. The December trip is going to be everything I hope it will be and the February trip will be everything 'new' I am excited to experience with the little ones. Sounds like a plan to me!

to everyone!

In my trip report you will see a few posts with pics of the view. Here are some direct links to the daylight view and the night view.

I'm thinking that's a good idea now too, and just put upper floor with nice view. And not limit.
In Aug 2011 we had a great GV room at BC CL, and didn't realize we could see the Iluminations till our last night when we were actually in our room packing! Sheech. Usually if we were at the resort at night, we were floating around SAB!!

Thanks Teena, I think I'll just request upper floor? best view possible and hope for the best.
At least I don't have to worry about balcony request, they all have full balconies!!! I think

Thank you for the warm thoughts and good luck to you and your parents. I wish you the best in the times to come. Keep strong and keep the faith. Families can really come together and have a positive impact during these tough times.

Hey Sue! There is a Multi Quote tutorial near the end of the FAQ post on page 1 (Post 12). Try it out with us here. We are really friendly.

Basically, you click on the middle (double quote, ") button in the bottom right corner of any post you want to quote. Repeat for all the posts you want to quote. When you are done, hit the REPLY at the bottom of the page. You will get quote boxes for all of the posts for which you clicked the " button.

It has been a while since I have been to the Disney store- did you get the Spiderman stuff there? Have they started welcoming and embracing the Marvel characters?

I thought I would take this opportunity to share a joke my son Nate made up when he was around 5 or 6:

Q: How does Spiderman know that it is time to go to the bathroom?




A: His Spidey Senses start Tinkling.


OK, off to post Teena's pictures and then make a "Scale of Dragon" for the witches. I was able to buy the entrails for the cauldron, but they weren't cheap!
