I'm following your report and of course I LOVE Safari Eeyore!!!

We too missed the Poly when we were at CSR...but we had a great stay at CSR. We requested Cabanas and got it, but we wished we were in Casitas, as it looked so much nicer. We learned that if we ever book a Mod again, we will pay the fee to upgrade to water view. We don't like the parking lot views (we didn't have one, but spent enough time walking to and from the bus stops that we saw what it would be like)!

How did you enjoy the parasailing?

Thanks one and all for joining in. I stopped for a bit because I didn't think anyone was reading. Silly me.

Parasailing was amazing!!!!! Dh surprised me, as we are celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and we have never done it in all our years of coming here.

I kind of forgot where I was so I will try to back track. Epcot was great, not crowded at all. We rode Soarin twice, MS, Nemo, etc. It was a good time. We had a 7:50 ADR at R&C and were seated as requested outside to view Illuminations. We always have to laugh at the number of people who just wander in at 8:45 and think they can just sit down and watch. One lady left her kid on the terrace while she yelled at the greeter for not allowing her to sit down without an ADR.

Back in a minute.....

Ok, I'm back! Yesterday we were just pooped, so we hung back at the hotel and swam. Dd9 loved the pool and slide. We had a 1:00 ADR at T-Rex (a new one for us). It was really fun! Food was great and dd got to break open a geode in the gift shop. We did some shopping at DTD (dd picked a pearl from an oyster) and we did BBB as well. Back to the hotel for dinner and an early night to sleep as we had an 8:10 am ADR at O'hana this morning.

Wr left the hotel room at 7:02 and got to Poly at 8:00. I thought that was pretty good transportation time. O'hana was fun as usual. We strolled around the grounds for a few minutes (we miss it so much) then off to Typhoon Lagoon.

Right now we are on the bus home. TL was great fun!! Did all the slides, swam with the sharks twice!!! How amazing was that??? Lots of firsts for us this year. We are going to shower and try to get into the nicer restaurant (forgot the name) for dinner.

Tomorrow up early for rope drop at DHS. Back soon!!!

That picture was worth a thousand words ... lucky you! lol Still enjoying your reports; keep 'em coming. Oh, and I can imagine how hot it must be there now, as it's very humid and in the 90's here in SC. Bet those pools feel good!

Thanks! We got up early this morning, and we're at Bus Stop #2 by 8:00 am. We got to DHS by 8:15 and got in line. The characters came by and we got a few photos while we waited. After that the lines were really long. They actually let us in at 8:45!!!!! I don't know if that's normal because we don't normally do rope drop, but we were excited. Then it was the running of the bulls to TSM. We got to the FP line and got passes to return within 1 hour!!!! So we did the stand by and when I saw the 20 minute wait I HAD TO take a photo. I've never experienced that before. We literally walked right onto the ride. I guess it was worth it to get up early and get there at rope drop!

Right after that we went over to ToT and RRC. It started to get very busy so we did Star Tours and got dd a hair wrap (19 inches!!!!!)

We wanted to do a few more rides at Epcot so we are there now. I'll check back later!

Thanks so much!! We went to Epcot for a short while just to get in a few last rides on our faves. We did Soarin and MS and shopping. We went back to the hotel to swim for a bit, but I really don't like the fact that it takes 8 plus minutes to walk from our room to the pool. Anyway, after that we showered and went to CR for dinner at CG. We are celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary!! We requested a table by the window and we got literally THE BEST table in the house. We watched Wishes and now we are on the long bus ride home. It was busy everywhere we went today.

Back tomorrow!!

Thank you so much for doing this! I'd love to stay at CSR some day as it looks like a beautiful resort. It's amazing how popular TSM still is after all this time; you'd think it was still a brand new ride. I'm going for my first Christmas visit this year and we're staying in the LM section of AoA! We've never done value before (not for any particular reason), but we're very excited about this new resort. Please keep sharing your wonderful trip with us as I'm enjoying it very much and it's so nice of you to take the time to do this for all of us who are stuck here in our 'other' homes! (Don't we all think of WDW as our home, too? )

I'm so glad everyone is enjoying the report!

Today we got up early to get to MK for rope drop. It was a long wait for the bus this morning so we ended up getting there as it opened. No worries though. Dd and dh walked onto SM, and we pretty much walked onto most rides (except of course PP). Crowds so far a very light which is nice. We were here for Labor Day a few years ago and it was a madhouse. Wr are going to do a few more rides and then head back to the hotel for a little break. We will come back tonight for the parade and fireworks. We leave tomorrow so this is our last full day. :-(

Back soon!

the last full day at WDW...

is always so hard to completely enjoy without thinking of tomorrow.

I always remind my Disney family how lucky we are to have been at WDW multiple times throughout the years; and that a new trip, no matter how far away, is always in the wings!

Enjoy today; and wishing you safe travels home!
