And a shameless plug... especially for you folks from New England... I added pictures from Dee & Ben's Excellent Adventures last week to York's Wild Animal Kingdom, Water Country and Hampton Beach in my ongoing class trip report (Wicked Awesome or Epic Fail). Local adventures are on on page 43.

Dee, love the new pics of Lily!!!! And also love your pics! They make me truly miss New England Hampton was the site of many teenage days, including after prom and senior skip day And we spent our summers in Wells, ME and used to go to York all the time. So many memories!

Today's plan is to have breakfast at Cape May and then off to Blizzard Beach until our new room is ready. Then we will clean up and head to MK for the evening. We will have our first fireworks dessert party there and then head back to BC. Well, that's the plan anyway. Hopefully all goes smooth today!
Sorry you had to deal with the x-rated noises, that is just so wrong for a family resort! Now if you were at Hedonism I don't think you would be able to complain I hope the weather holds out for you today and you get to enjoy Blizzard Beach. I am about 3 hours south of Orlando and so far our morning has been completely rained out. Keeping my fingers crossed that you have some sunshine up there!

Finally one night we call the front desk. Well after the front desk called the family they started jumping even louder! I thought DH's head was going to blow off! Really rude and inconsiderate people. A baby crying at Disney? Goes with the territory.

HAVE A FANTASTIC TIME AT BC CL!!!!!
Teena~I totally agree with Robyn! Children and babies making noise do not bother me at all. I am a mom so I completely understand how children can be and since Disney is a family thing, it is to be expected. My children do not get traumatized by crying babies!! So relax and enjoy your time with Princess Lily. It is going to be a magical time for all of you!

Thanks Dee for all your hard work on the BC and YC threads. It really helps us newbies get the best information out there.

Speaking of information, any updates on HH? I haven't told my wife yet in hopes it won't be that big of an inconvenience.

I still can't believe we are going. When we booked the trip back in March it was a long shot and now we are! We are going to start getting the costumes for the kids and hide them in the basement since they don't know we are going.

I am also really worried about my boys crying and waking everyone up! My husband is super stressed about this, but I told him people will understand. Fingers crossed!!!

That is why I HATE rooms with connecting doors in any hotel. The noise passes right through. I've checked into rooms and gone right back down to the front desk when I walk in and see a connecting door. Bad news. Always.

Teena - yippie skippie - BC CL! I already went through the shock of YCFAN at BC - I think you at YC would have been too much for me.

Starting to plan next year's trip. Hopefully the AP rate God's will shine on us.
We plan to be at Disney over the 4th of July. Tentative plan is June 30-July 6 at the GF and then July 8-15 at BC.
No promises, but maybe next summer will be the year! Fingers crossed that we have a trip at the same time. We have had 3 great trips to Florida the second week in July. I have told Ben that the timing would be great for next summer (2 years since his last trip, 2 years until his class trip).

Need to work on the DH a bit- I remember reading some advice about sloggy German beer or something...

We really want to go the Barcelo Riviera Maya in Feb, but so far prices have been outrageous! This is the longest my family has gone without a trip "in the hopper" (booked) in a long time and I DON'T LIKE IT ONE BIT!!!

Forget the Feb trip and go for July!!!!! That would be one heck of a DisMeet - no flat Dee - the real deal!!!!

Our APs expire July 18 so up to that time we are somewhat flexible.
Sounds like a perfect storm!!!!

I am loving the pictures of Princess Lily's first visit. I can hardly wait till we take our own little princess...we are booked for the BCV from May 29-June 5. Our princess should be about 8 months old then...unless she decides that she wishes to be born a little bit earlier! We're so excited to take her home and show her our favorite place in the world.

Thanks for starting a new thread!

Freezer?

Hi - my friends are finalizing their GG food/beer order and asked if the refrigerators in the room have the small freezer box. Anyone know? They are debating on getting these frozen margarita pouches to be able to take to the pool.

Found you!!!!

Dee, I'm on week 4 of eating right - started riding my bike again yesterday, getting ready to start training for the TOT 10 miler (got another 13 or so pounds to go before my knees can handle the running!), so.... ADD ME to the list for September 2013! I'm coming for sure. Whether or not DH will come is still up in the air! But DD will be almost 13 and DS 11 then (and are very independent anyway) so I can surely manage on my own.

X-rated noises nobody wants to hear at Disney, but children crying or making noise is to be expected. Babies crying, well, I was just happy it wasn't one of mine and I wasn't responsible for looking after him or her!!!! LOL
