Sheesh! I am so excited about the BCV - 1 Bedroom

I have to get my pictures of the kids we try to take at every vacation during our upcoming trip June 2013. I love these photos of my kiddos. Someday, I hope to add their families to these photos.





We also have this pose several times over the last few years on our trips. I plan to get another pose on our next trip. Above are June 2006, May/June 2008, Christmas 2011.




I love this photo of my kiddos, It was taken during our December 2011 trip on the beach at Beach Club Resort. I love this pose. I also have one of them leaving the international gateway at epcot for a few years in a row holding hands leaving Epcot. I will have to look for those.

PTR Plans for Travel Day & Arrival at Disney!



PTR Plans for Friday, June 14, 2013



On Friday, June 14, 2013 we are leaving our Indiana Home for Our DVC Home in Orlando, Florida.

We will be leaving early in the morning around 4-5am and driving straight to Orlando. We have estimated that we will arrive around 10-11pm Friday night.


This is will be the first time we will be driving straight through to Florida. We will be driving our 2011 Black Chrysler Town & Country Van.


We plan to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the road with stops to use the potty and get food.

We usually have breakfast at Chick-fil-a and dinner at Chick-fil-a, if possible. Dinner will be determined.

We will be staying at an off-site hotel in Downtown Disney called Hilton Garden Inn.

Shawn’s job as a commercial project manager requires travel; he builds up hotel points through Hilton by staying at Hilton Garden Inn or at a Hampton Inn. These points allow us to stay at Hilton Hotels for free by using the Hilton point system. We use these points for vacation travel or for a weekend getaway. We have also used them for our anniversary stays. It is a nice perk!

The plan is to stay at the Hilton Garden Inn for two nights before our stay begins at Beach Club Villas on Sunday, June 16, 2013.

We will arrive at Disney this day! So excited! The next morning we have to move to another DTD Hotel Resort!

I had accidently lost my subscription to your PTR... but then I think I saw a question you asked about dining for DS on the Dining thread... (I may be able to help you with that one... (I have an 18 year old DD) so if you tell me what he likes food wise... I may be able to help...

(plus we're going to be there in three days so it'll be fresh in my mind....)

As for him not wanting to drive... is it possible that he's anxious about it? (Does he know anyone who's been in an accident?) It's not something he may come out and say but I do know kids that have felt that way... He may just need time to get used to the idea...

I'm going to go back and reread your plans...

& I'll def think of dining ideas...

(We're leaving on Thursday but we'll be back on Tuesday - so if I don't get back right away... that's why...

Hi! The question on the Disney Restaurant Board was for someone else. We are taking DS to Yachtsman while we are there. He loves steak.

On the driving, I talked with him a bit and he said he just doesn't want to study for the test. He would rather play xbox, boys!

So I told him he will have to study and get his permit. So he told my husband, Mom said I have to get my permit acting all sad. So we are forcing him. Haha! Well I am!

I can't wait to read about your trip to BC and the Holiday at WDW. I am looking forward to it.

The Beach Club really is a beautiful resort... we absolutely loved it... the pool, the theming, the convenience- the whole Boardwalk...

We sadly cancelled our ADR for Yachtsmen... but I want to go there... the menu really does look very good

Yes... if DS doesn't have any kind of fear issue surrounding driving... the sooner the better... it's really difficult in today's world not to be driving and the longer he waits... the more likely he is to make it a bigger and bigger deal...

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you get all the ADRs you want...

ADR Pixie Dust!

ADR Pixie Dust!

So I feel like I received some ADR pixie dust this morning.

I got up at 5am, so that I could be ready to make ADRs online at 6am. I usually call and make them but I decided to try it differently this trip. I had my coffee, my computer set up, the dogs had been outside, the cats fed and watered. I was organized and ready. For some of you that do not know, Disneyworld.com is switching over to a new Disneyworld.com website.

There are a few bugs, actually a lot of bugs so unfortunately, I was unable to make my ADRs until after I dropped DS off to school.

I got back home at 7:15 and called.

I was only on hold for about 5 minutes.

I was able to make all my ADRs but 2 and got all the times I wanted or close to it.

The Pixie Dust was that I was able to make ADR’s from 6/15 through 6/26, which was way past that +10 rule! Yay! I do have to call back for the last 2 days (6/27 & 6/28).

Thanks for reading my chatter!

Via Napoli ADR Made!

So
I
made
our
Via Napoli
lunch reservation
this morning for
Thursday, June 27.

I had to call again,
I knew I would be unable to make it online again.

So, The dining specialist I talked to said I don't think that the system will let me make your reservation for that day before she looked it up.

I said, just try it because yesterday, it let me make it up through, Wednesday, June 27.

She said, I may get an error message.

I said, I bet it will let you.

She says, Did you make this reservation online or over the phone.

I said, yesterday, over the phone.

She tried it and it worked! Cha-Ching!!!!

Then, I told her I was unable to make dining reservations online even with my resort reservation#. I said, that is ok because I like talking to the dining specialist personally, that it was fun. She chuckled.

She also tried making Crystal Palace for me for Friday, June 28th. I told her it wouldn't work but she tried and it did not!

So, I will be calling tomorrow.

Crystal Palace Breakfast ADR has been made!







Crystal Palace Breakfast ADR has been made for our last day! The tradition continues breakfast buffet on our last day.

I got an early ADR, and unless times change which is entirely possible. it is before the park opens at 9am. This will be really nice. We haven't had an early MK ADR like this since 2008.
