Oh, and the gray Disneyland shirt? My dad got the t-shirt version of that when we were there in 2010. Sadly, his did not hold up well, but he tends to ruin shirts in the laundry. Hopefully yours will last longer!
It really is! Yeah, I really wanted to see some pictures actually taken by people before I went there, but sadly they were hard to come across! I completely understand that feeling because I get like that too. At some points I felt like I was relaxing *too* much... but that's what I get for being a WDW addict.

Aww that's disappointing! I'll make sure to take good care of mine!

The villa is so spacious and homey looking! I love the little carvings and the checkerboard built right into the table. The breakfast booth is really cute too.

Those desserts look so delicious- I don't know how your brother could resist them! I can never say no to cheesecake!
It was! Thank you so much! The pin binder was GREAT! I loved looking at it.
It really was! The little touches made it very special!
I know... he has great will power that I lack.

YAY Hilton Head finally! It looks so amazing there. I really would love to go there. I love your family. I love how even when you don't vacation at Disney, you still go some place Disney! I want to do that. PERFECT. You should PM me a bit more detailed info on what your dad does! Not to be a creep or specifics, but I was so excited when I read he is in insurance. My boyfriend is starting to go down a career path to get into that and I'm just glad it's accommodating to Disney trips! I'm just wondering if it's similar things or if your dad did anything special to get into it. I think my DBF is taking specific classes or something.
That's AWESOME! If we had one, I definitely would work at it!
It is amazing! We had a wonderful time. Thank you so much! We are big fans of the Disney company because their customer service is top notch. We don't have to worry about being disappointed! We almost rented a condo, but then we decided that we would be guaranteed a wonderful vacation if we stuck with the Disney name!
And I can just tell you right here - it's hard for me to explain because I don't completely understand it, but his title is a "surety bond manager." Basically his customers are people who are building large construction projects, and if he "bonds" them, they get insurance for their project. It's a good field, however he works REALLY hard and it can get stressful. Thankfully he is a very level headed person for the times he has to deal with the crazy businessmen!

I adore all your pins, the Monorail License plate one is great. I've never been into pin trading, every time I go to WDW I really want to start but just don't seem to get round to it!
Can't wait to hear more
Awesome! Thank you - it was GORGEOUS!
Yeah we really enjoyed it! The cheesecake was my favorite part!
Thank you! I'm so so glad that I found that one. What I did was order a lot of 25 from ebay so I just had a few to trade. That way I don't have to my $8 pins and then trade them away.
Thank you!

-I have the pink cinderella blanket, and as soon as I get to the Disney Store I am buying that Ariel one! I can't even tell you how many times I put it in my online cart, but I can never justify the shipping costs to buy it online!

Sweet potato fries are my FAVORITE food.
He is SUCH a sweetheart. I get to see him tomorrow finally and I'm SO excited.
Bahaha I'm sure Preston would love to play you in scrabble. He is obsessed with that game.
Girl, you need to make time to get to that outlet!
She like... doesn't have sales. That was the first one I ever saw her have and it really wasn't that much of a discount. I think because everything is handmade it wouldn't be fair for her to discount it often. However, she has been open a lot more recently (rather than closing down ordering for weeks at a time) so if you're ready to order, I'm sure you won't have a problem catching her now!
Thank you!

I hope you get some great stuff at the outlet!
Pick out some great bows!
Thanks!

Update #4: It's a Mickey Waffle Morning!
August 18, 2012

This morning we woke up around 9:30 am. I wanted to get up earlier, but I think we needed some sleep after all that driving. My parents said that they slept WONDERFULLY and I did too! The beds at that place were extremely comfortable!

I got up, woke Preston up, took a shower, and got ready. Then while Preston was taking a shower, my Dad and I went over to the Recreation area. He wanted to get some information on tours and stuff, while I wanted to get BREAKFAST!

I could smell my food as I approached “Tide Me Over.” Obviously I was getting Mickey Waffles. NOM NOM NOM. I ordered three of them, one for me, one for Jon, and one for Preston.



I had to wait about 6 minutes, and in the meantime I listened to the EPCOT SOUNDTRACK that they were playing. No big deal. They were playing “Tomorrow’s Child,” “Energy,” and the “Test Track Medley.” Yay.

Then I was handed a magical bag full of the most perfect waffles in existence! I headed back to the room and we ate our waffles. IT WAS SO GOOD TO BE REUNITED!



This was Preston’s first Mickey waffle EVER! I was so proud. He absolutely LOVED it... just as I expected. (:



My most liked photo EVER on instagram to date! (Follow me - PrincessJess508. Same for twitter!)



Dad came back saying that he booked a dolphin cruise for us on Monday. However, we decided that an earlier time would be better, so he went back to change it.

While he was down there, he said that there was a big pin board! So I sprinted out of the room to check it out. There weren’t a lot of great ones, but I found a 50th anniversary Cinderella pin. Not to shabby.

Then Preston and I wanted to check out the gift shop! It is called Broad Creek Mercantile. I really wanted to get a Hilton Head shirt and some of the pins later in the trip. THEY HAVE MICKEY BARS AND MICKEY RICE KRISPIES IN THE GIFT SHOP. Yes, this place is perfect.





Here are some pictures of the gift shop. It's not huge, but I absolutely loved it!







I contemplated which pins I wanted to invest in and then I traded pins with the Cast Member. He had a World Showcase compass pin that I snatched right up!

Then there was a trivia question and this kid came to answer it. The question was “What were Mickey’s first words?” and the answers were “Oh Boy!” “That’s Swell!” “Gee Whiz” and “Hot Dog!” The kid guessed every single one, and the right answer (which was “Hot Dog!) was the last one he guessed. However, the cast member still gave him a prize!

If you go into the gift shop and answer the daily trivia question correctly, you get the prize of some candy and a trading pin! I went every day.

Then Preston and I asked if we could answer the question and the CM said sure. (even though we already knew the answer haha. He was a cool CM.) Then we got some pins! Since Preston forgot his pins at home, I gave him the one that I picked out so he would have a couple to trade.

Tide Me over and the gift shop are located on the second level of the recreation building and they're right next to each other. Looking out from this level, you could see THE CUTEST SIGN IN THE ENTIRE WORLD.



This sign tells you how many miles away each of the DVC resorts are from that point. Like... how much more adorable could this place be!? I loved it. That has to be one of my favorite parts of the entire resort.



Then we went back to the room and had a little family meeting. Dad mapped out what we were going to do for the rest of the week and he said that WE WERE GOING TO STAY AN ADDITIONAL DAY!! Hooray!!! I was so excited.That’s the beautiful thing about road trips.

Then we all made the decision that we wanted to go to the beach! The weather was AWESOME that day!

Unfortunately, the soccer game on TV distracted Preston and Jonathan so I had to wait another 15 minutes. COME ON. It was already almost 12 and I wanted to get to the beach! Finally I just walked out of the room and they followed me. (yes, I am a princess.)

Time to go!



We went down to catch the shuttle! It was a green shuttle and it came in about 3 minutes. It either comes every half an hour or you can use the phone at the bus stop to call the driver! How convenient.



We hopped on the shuttle and the driver was AWESOME! He was so cheery and talkative. He asked us where we were from, and he actually knew exactly the area where Preston lives! It’s weird because it’s such an obscure little place in Georgia.

Everyone on the bus was a first timer to HHI… so that was really exciting!

Welcome to Disney's Beach House - exclusive to guests and DVC members staying at Disney's Hilton Head Resort!





Let's take a look inside. The kids splash zone:



The H-Shaped pool!





All day, every day, my friends. (:



Obligatory Disney resort rug photo!



We went in and got some smoothies from the bar because we could.



I got a Strawberry:



Preston got Strawberry Banana:

I confess--I've never had a Mickey waffle. But, I'm goin' home this November, so I'll definitely try one!

Oh, and Jess, have you ever wondered what the music was like back in EPCOT Center's early days? Then go to this site: http://www.mousevinyl.com/content/of...eyland-records

There, you can virtually listen to a record known as "The Official Album of EPCOT Center", featuring a bunch of old EPCOT songs, like:

The theme to the old 3D show "Magic Journeys"
"Energy (You Make the World Go Round)" from the original Universe of Energy
"One Little Spark" from the original Journey Into Imagination (which I really want to come back and get rid of dumb ol Dr. Channing)
"It's Fun to Be Free" from World of Motion, which got replaced by Test Track
and a medley of songs from "Kitchen Kabaret", including that classic "Veggie Veggie Fruit Fruit".

I love that they have Mickey waffles, Mickey bars, AND Mickey rice krispies at HHI!

The sign that tells you how far the DVC resorts are from HHI is awesome! I love it.

All of the smoothies sound delicious! NOMS.

So glad to find this report! We are going (my DH, DS (age 4) and me) Octoberr 5-12, and like you, I've had a hard time finding reports/pictures. I was very excited to see all of your pictures! Do they sell Disney toys (like the little matchbox-type cars, etc) there? I know DS will want to go look!
