Wow - thanks for the great update!! And what an upgrade you got!! That is the best! I love the view - I'm looking forward to walking along that pathway on the way to Beaches and Cream soon! It's made me all excited for my trip!!
I think if ever I stay onsite I would stay at Beach Club. I love the fragrance in the lobby and it just seems so "genteel"!!
Looking forward to hearing more.
(Quick question - what program are you using for your photos to put them in the TR? I'm taking my iPad with me when I go and will want to upload some photos too!! Thanks! )

We didn't get to eat at beaches And cream, but I saw some pretty satisfied people leaving there !

I'm taking the photos with my iPhone and using the Photobucket app to upload them to my photobucket account. If you then select the uploaded photo in the app and tap the "i" button ( for information) it will display the correct [image]code which you can copy and paste directly into your dis boards post. I've been typing up my posts in the Notes app, pasting in the [image] codes And them just copying and pasting the entire post into the Dis.

Happy Anniversary, what an awesome upgrade! I am wondering why you think this will be your last trip to WDW?

Because DH just isn't really into Disney like we are here on the DIS. We've now been to Disneyland twice and WDW twice and he would prefer to spend our holiday dollars seeing new places and trying out new experiences. I do sympathize with him, I'm inclined to think the same way. I never really expected to get back to WDW again after our first trip but as our big road trip
Almost went past the door of WDw , DH was happy enough to stop in there en route. However, With all the other places we've seen in Florida this trip I don't think we are likely to get down there again, but i think it's possible that we might drop in at Disneyland again some time when we are transmitting through L.A. En route to somewhere else! I probably shouldn't say "never"

i understand and am forever grateful that DH has a connection whilst not an addiction like mine to Disney, I guess you could start traveling to Hong Kong, Tokyo and Paris

I reckon the key is make it part of something broader. As you say DLR on the way in/ out of lax. I think we do DL HK or JPnext as I am not sure I could get away with 5 years in a row in the USA. exchange rate plays a big factor though too which is why we have enjoyed the USA these last few years in particular.

What an amazing and wonderful upgrade for your anniversary. We are about to celebrate out 20th anniversary in October, dammit I wish we could claim it . The Beach Club is high on my list, would love to stay there and your photos make me want it even more.

TSM and Rope drop - what are the rope drop changes you've mentioned? I haven't been there for 2 years, clearly I'm out of the loop.
