Ahhh your Vera. It's beautiful. (I'm in love with VB as well.)

OMG. I can't believe your bus ride! That's insane. That bus driver must have been so embarrassed.

Ahhh the Contemporary! I miss it so!!! That view is perfect!

I think you're right!

The whole Kent county is so pretty and if there's one word I would use to describe living here, it would be civilized What one word would you use to describe living in Dublin or England? I'm actually hoping my research will help me get a job at Disney as an Imagineer doing a lot of computer-based research- fingers crossed!
I haven't been to Cantebury - it's one of many English towns still on my list to see! Hmmm...a word to describe Dublin...I think civilized would do for England, but not for Dublin. Dublin was grittier than I expected, and you had to dig a little deeper to find its charm. "Colorful," maybe would be a good word!

Vera is sooo pretty. I love going to VB outlets...although it can be dangerous to my wallet! Yeah...the bus driver definitely seemed stressed by the time we got to the Contemporary. I guess he was thrown because he didn't expect to go to the Polynesian.

Hi there, I'm joining in!

I love the monorail resorts, and in just two short weeks I'll be at the contemporary. I've never stayed club level though, so I'm looking forward to your reports!

Oh and I'm a huge Downton Abbey fan too! I think its the best TV I've seen in years!

Oh man! We are leaving Thursday, so I will have to find out about the food Friday or Saturday. It looks yummy though!!

Your family sounds fun! How cool that you and your brother were both working at WDW at the same time!! I bet that doesn't happen too often!

Your Dad's sabatical trip out west sounds like a lot of fun too! Not exactly Disney, but interesting and fun!!

as the temps begin to drop in the Northeast...

...I will be enjoying your latest trippie reminding us of the summer!

Looks like your DisFam was there the week before ours. Such a great time...

Is there anything better than enjoying the world with your whole family? No chance.

Aww, page two! But I'm here and ready to read!!

eta - club at all three monorail resorts!! Must be a pretty hefty CM discount!

Love the veras!

Oh, the poor bus driver! Well, they all have to start somewhere.

Oooh the lounge looks so nice - I never knew Contemporary even HAD CL! What a great view!

Glad to see you on the new trippie!! LOL, I do love Vera Bradley. Have you seen the new fall colors? SO pretty - although I guess I shouldn't be encouraging you

Welcome and HOORAY for another DA fan. It is such good television...there's interesting drama, but then there are just little, everyday details too that are so relaxing. I wish there was more on tv like it! You're going to have a wonderful time at the Contemporary, and your trip is getting so close!!

Glad to see you on the new TR! I've posted a few face pics on my blog, so I figured I might as well use some here too.

Hi Emma!
Looking forward to this TR, sounds like you will be able to show us quite a bit of information on the monorail resorts. I have only stayed at one, BLT which may not officially count, but I loved it.
I was in WDW, BCV, Labor Day weekend. We walked around Cresent Lake and over to the BW. When I walked through the lobby I looked for you, I did not know that you were no longer working down there. Sounds like you have other adventures to explore.
I just love VB too, and really have so much of it. No new fall colors for me yet, but I did just buy a super soft scarf on sale at a local gift shop. I am not looking forward to the approaching cooler weather, but at least wearing the scarf will make me happy.

Hope you have a fun trip!! My family can be pretty crazy but also a lot of fun, and it was really nice to have Aramis there at the same time.

So good to see you on the new trippie! Hope you guys had a fantastic trip, and you are SO right - there is nothing better than having your family with you at Disney World!

Hey girl!! We have done DME before, although it was the first time we did it all together (previously I did it by myself when flying in from college). LOL, and you're right - I did switch up the skirts with a few pairs of shorts!

I know, I'm bummed I won't get to see anymore DISers too, but how excited you must be for your trip! Have you decided on your restaurants yet?

P.S. I had not seen Caroline Abbot, but I just hopped over to the AG website and she is SO pretty - I love her outfits!!

Haha, CM discounts are pretty sweet, and we only did one- or two-night club stays, but we did have a wonderful time!

BLT definitely counts - it's so pretty there! Awww, sorry to have missed you. And the new scarf sounds cute!
