How sweet of your DD's friend to bring you all of those goodies!! That is extremely thoughtful!!

Love the McDonald's and Starbucks breakfast pics.....Most (if not all) our trips starts with Egg Mcmuffins and Starbucks, for sure!

Great plane pics and 4am or not, you all look great!!


Have fun TODAY at WDW!!

It was very sweet of her to bring all of the treats, I agree. She's the sweetest child.

it's been very cool Alison! Just back from MNSSHP. I've worn flip flops daily and my feet have been fine. I wear running shoes for 5 hours and my feet are burning. Back to the Reefs for me.

Eat spicy tonight! I can't wait to hear about AoA

Love the departure pictures!!!

I'll post some AoA pics when I get home. It was so very good to meet you and Pat. I'll post more about our delicious margaritas too.

But your fridge is full, you can relax knowing that snackage at any point in time, desires spoken and unspoken, can be met.

And hey, you can always cancel and ADR and just eat up what's left if you feel like it!

Thrilled that the full day 1 in the parks was such a home run. Love the pics.

Sleep!

There is no way we'll even make a dent. I totally overbought but we won't go hungry way out here in the wilderness.

I don't remember where it was, but the Bell guy who came to help us took one look at the back of our SUV and he went back and got flippy boxes to take up our groceries. I think we went to Walmart, but we had almost more than enough food, but not enough becuase I remember the day we went to cape canaveral we were supposed to have dinner at Narcoosee's (before the whole deposit thing kicked in) and she said NO WAY on the drive back. So I dropped her off at the room (well tucked her in) and went to publix to get Barber's Chicken Cordon Blue for dinner and Lipton Noodles and some veggies. So obviously even though we bought a lot of stuff we didn't buy enough dinner!

You THV looks so wonderful! I hope that you have some wonderful nights drinking that Mike's Hard Lemonade and Guiness out there on the patio, and Girl you need to enjoy that jacuzzi tub (if the THV has enough hot water to fill it! ) They each have their own hot water system, keep that in mind!

Oh the groceries........it's been a wonderful stay. I'll give more details later.

Enjoy you wonderful time.

The buses have been good for the most part. Gabby made friends with a few of them so after our long nights they drop us right at our walkway which has been great. We learned another way to the THV from the Grandstand tonight which was cool. I'll give tons more detail later when I don't feel slap happy.

So ridiculous the amount of food I bought and brought. The Nutella, pb, and j haven't been opened.

Then after we were outside and you know the whole, pulling the sword out of the stone? Well they called my Dad up and had him try and then they pulled Hailey out of the audience and she did it - the look on her face was priceless! They are evidently still talking about the trip too, which is awesome!

AKV is our home resort and for some crazy reason, we've never stayed anywhere else! We just love love it there so I'm thinking this next trip of changing it up! But who knows...the following year '2014, we were going to do Vero Beach, for our 15th wedding anniversary, but now we are thinking about banking those points and going to London! So...who knows!

Both the Africa Trek and the Backstage Magic tours are seperate tours, that you pay for. The Africa Trek looks really cool - check out the website

http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/tou...d-africa-trek/

I don't think I'm going to do a newsletter for this trip coming up - I'm glad you liked the ones I did for the big trip, but I'm trying to keep this next one kinda loooowwww key. I will be doing a wrap up newsletter, which I'll send you. I am just waiting to get everyone's pictures then I'll put it together.

- Going back to catch up on your TR!


Cool, can't wait to read it.

It always starts with the best of intentions and then, you get into the swing of vacation and BAM - you haven't eaten 1/2 of what you bought! Soo funny! Your weather looks great too, so excited for the next update! Hope you got some rest though and I loved the early morning travel pics! We were up at 3 am and on the road at 4 am for our trip - so I get it. Though 3 am for a WDW vacation vs 3 am for a business trip is a WHOLE different attitude!

Hope your having a great time!

My eyes are beginning to close on me.......

Just got home Sunday and now I'll enjoy WDW again through your trip! I love the pictures of THV's. First time I've actually seen them. And love the pic of al the groceries lined up.

Have a fantastic time; keep those pictures coming!!!


I'll write a proper report but for now I can hardly manage a pic now and then.

Btw...reading your updates is totally making me miss my favorite place!

I'm so glad you're enjoying it.

Bell services earned their keep. $30 tip for drop off as we has so many groceries We didn't end up trying The Turf Club....the best laid plans

We're on the bus now to check into Kidani after some lunch and shopping in DTD. It's a hot one today, hottest so far. It's AK tonight for some EE in the dark.


Thanks everyone for reading along still.

Just found your report and love it!!! I was feeling kind of disney deprived as we usually go every year in November and we are not going this year. GASP - we are going on a cruise in December instead. So, I am living vicariously through trip reports. Love your pics!!!! I have never done a trip report, but I love to plan and research everything about Disney. I always say half of the fun is in the planning and the anticipation. Have a great time!

Your costumes are great! I don't understand the SSR hate either, but to each his own! I hope your stay at Kidani works out to be a little more relaxing. I'm getting tired just reading about your trip!


Ellen, do you think #8 was with Jenny in her kitchen too?
