I read on another site that the Flying Jib slide was closed for repairs- does anyone know anything about it? Thanks!

DS has really been looking forward to the slide. Hope it's up soon!

So we got to BC at about 9:45, and Teena was fabulous....amazing.....and the kindest person ever.

There was this giant dump truck in front of the respect though.
And Tinkerbell was driving.
And it was full of Pixie Dust.
And they dropped all of it on us.

I'm writing this from the master bedroom of the Nantucket (Vice Presidential) Suite. DP cried and I don't think I spoke for over 1/2 hour. CM Chip was the sweetest and all I could mutter was "Wow," and "Thank You" over and over again.....very quietly...I was practically muttering.

I'm over the moon, devastatingly humbled, and floating on a cloud of Pixie Dust.

So sad to leave....

Can't believe our vaca is almost over. We have spent 9 wonderful days here at the BC and leave tomorrow night. Having never visited in August, and reading a few negative reviews about crowds & weather at this time of year, I really went in preparing for the worse & hoping for the best....all I can say is we were very pleasantly surprised! Yes it has been hot but not as bad as we thought and as for crowds, we found some parks to be much lighter than expected and others to be manageable (we found Epcot crowds extremely light compared to F&W crowds). We've gone to SAB everyday with the exception of yesterday due to the weather, and have always managed to find chairs). We just spent a wonderful day at SAB and the slide is definitely up & running. We also did a first today and tackled the kitchen sink at Beaches & Cream. Although we didn't quite finish it, we truly enjoyed every bite . Not sure if we just got lucky with the weather & crowds but we cannot get over what a great week it's been and are actually thinking about another August stay next year. Extending our trip to a 10 day stay really gave us the opportunity to stop &
smell the roses so to speak...we've managed to do all the "musts" and yet
managed quite a bit of downtime as well - something we don't always get to
do. I'm so glad that I ignored the negative comments about August and while I'm sad to be leaving tomorrow, I'm so excited about planning another vacation.

SQUEEE!!!!!!!! (That's what NM does when she can't speak!)

I am so glad that you are sharing all of this with us. Let me tell you I really needed to hear something good today... My Mom is in the hospital and it's not good. I needed to go on the Dis to decompress and this was that BOMB!
Thank you, thank you, Thank you!

Woo Hoo!
The best way to survive the end of the trip is to start planning the next one! Thanks for pointing out that it doesn't pay to worry. Sometimes we get too consumed by the small things and stress out before the trip. I've found that this only wears me down so I have less energy by the time the trip happens. I'm really working on not sweating the small stuff.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and the details of your trip. I find myself realizing that I might not have the energy for the usual commando trip with all the changes I have experienced from my cancer surgery. It's very reassuring to know that Disney is the kind of place where I can slow down and really enjoy all the many other things that the parks and resorts offer, instead of charging ahead with the thundering herds on the way to "Soar Story Mountain".

WDW really is delicious with all of the layers of entertainment that are offered. I always tell people that wonder why we go, that WDW is the best vacation value per dollar spent. That's the sort of thing that you either 'get' or you don't!

Don't be too sad when the Magical Depress comes to drag you home. Just tell yourself you'll be back again soon!

~NM
