LOL! Technically only Evan pedaled for an hour. Guess all that bike riding he did over hills all summer to the lake paid off.

Oh you never know, you might have! Evan did awesome, I tried to pedal extra hard on the way back to give him a break though.

I've heard that about SSR. Haven't stayed there yet although it is our home resort.

Too funny about the bunnies, we saw a ton of them at Vero

The grocery service I used rents them for $25. Not sure of the timeframe of the rental, a week maybe? The mug did have a drawback much as it pains me to admit but I will get to that later in the report.

There are some great deals out of TX, apparently it's not selling well. I'd book now if rates are low and just move it if you need to. How old are the grandkids?

I think frazzled is a normal state of mind for me

It was a great start! And since they only bothered me (though now Evan swears he remembers them...not!) it really wasn't a big deal at all.

LOL! Well, he had seen them on the boat ride to DTD both there and back so it wasn't like a new view. I think he had visions of docking the boat, getting out and really looking at them, he was bummed we didn't make it to the dock. Yes, switching in front of the patrol would not have been a good idea. Wonder if Disney would fine us? I probably signed our life away when I checked it out but really have no idea what they would do.

Wow! I'm impressed if that is you frazzled, as you held everything together so well and got everything finished in a timely manner!! Impressive!

My Grandmunchkins are 4 and 7. They have been allowed to be 'grazers' and would never last through a formal meal on a cruise. Until that changes, we will have to dream about it. We are 'practicing' for WDW now and they are doing better, but not that well.

Thank you for the tip about renting a Keurig! That's a great idea! I have read that most of the resorts have new coffee makers, that take pods, (not Keurig, but another shaped brand). We are not sure what AKVK has, so will most likely get some bagged Kona, if they have a regular pot! I will keep it in mind for our second week at Marriott!! Thanks again!!:

There are other options than the formal meals. The buffet is available at all times, for all meals pretty much and can be an alternative to the sit downs. As is room service and the counter service locations. With the kids clubs, it's possible to take kids to graze at one location, check them in, and then have a nice sit down dinner without them. There are people who never go to the main dining room at all, or do mostly the adult only locations.

I've read that too although I've not actually seen one in a resort. The 1B at AKV Jambo has a standard mr. coffee.

AS far as I understand it, the normal resorts are changing over to the pod style coffee makers, the DVC villas will keep the ones they have now. But this is just what I concluded from what I read, not any official info.

That's what I've heard too, but I'm not sure I've actually heard from anyone who has gotten a pod brewer yet either. LOL!

Well I finally got all nice and caught up.

That paddle boat incident had me cracking right up.

Glad you made it back to the dock!

Subbing, got the shameless plug from Mark (Captain Oblivious)'s TR. I got a chuckle out of your epic pedalboat trip story!

Gotta love shambles plugs! Although that was one of the funniest ones ever, I have to admit!

Very happy to have you here. I don't have any cool games though, however I have been known to give out slushie credits here and there.


The paddleboat adventure was epic to be sure. Definitely a memory and a story that's going to stick and I love those! I would do it again.
