They basically took one for the team according to Michael. He said to err on the low end of the age range, not high.

Off for a final pool game of Disney trivia and then some King Pin trading.

Ending with a bang at F&W!

I agree Jenna, no more school trips. June 2014 sounds perfect!

At our last AKV pool party. BINGO!

Cynthia and Jen it was great to meet you both.[center]


Lexi will be 8 on our next trip so it sounds like she will be the perfect age.

If you have pics of King Pin, I'd love to see! Fairly sure I met him on Sunday at the Yacht Club gift shop! Traded with him for something cool for Evan but I don't recall what it was. He was a riot and a half.

It gives me such a happy feeling. I bought it from Kidani and now Michael is making mad fun of me because now I've got to carry it on.

there were 3 giraffes. It's looks completely dark to me but darn from my phone, with the edited enhancement feature, they're fairly clear. Must not transfer from my phone to Photobucket as well.

Would love to see the pic's on FB. How does one find you? That's if you don't mind my "friending" you. You can send the info via a PM if that makes you more comfortable.
i will message you.

It really was such a terrific trip. I've got so many photos to share between my phone and camera. I promise to return to my photo heavy style. AKV is amazing! I am a believer. I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

we. Had a wonderful last day. On the bus ride back from Epcot, I was explaining to Michael just how much I learned about visiting WDW and I am a resort and park person, my commando days are long gone. Not sure if I'm older or wiser or a combo.

We're in girl! June 2014. Jenna too.

Also 2ScottishPrincesses it is good to see you here again.
I think I mentioned they felt it was too young for them but they were in the high end of the age range. They said Joshua at 11 would also have found it boring. But ya know what? It's fine they took one for the team.

Way too old Cynthia. Chloe and Mikayla were bored They didn't complain by any means just gave an honest opinion.

Michael took pics. He rolled out a swatch of red carpet and the kids stood on it while they traded. They all loved it.


I'm pooped, packed, and ready (well not really) to go home. I've got tons of photos and will start transferring them from phone to comp.

The bread service was fabulous and not expensive. The drinks were also good, perfect for the end of the day.

I won't spoil the fun of it, but just before you left you started to read Ellen's Kauai/Aulani TR and I think when you get back and catch up, you will laugh about your groceries when you get to that point of the report. If she wants to let you know, she can clue you in, but it was a humourous part of her trip. As you were talking about how the bell staff will be happy with you when you left, it reminded me of that.

Alison, I have fallen in love with AKV, Kidani specifically. DH and Gabby like Jambo better, Joshua and I prefer Kidani, and Chloe just thinks we're nuts for even having the conversation.

Looks like a great vacation being enjoyed by all. I love seeing the pics also.
There is so much to do and never enough time for all you want to do.
You need a vacation after the vacation. Glad you had enough food !
I tend to over purchase food too !
Enjoy !
Waiting for more...
Thanks for joining in. I promise to clean this report up. It feels fragmented like my brain right now. I am leaving so much food for Mousekeeping or Bell Services, whoever wants it.

I'm glad your trip was awesome, part of me is jealous because I would have loved to sipped and strolled around Epcot with you, but it wasn't in the cards. There is no way that I could have made it through these last few weeks if there had been a vacation in there.

We need to cut some things out of our life for now and that is going to happen because we need some "us" time or I am going to lose my freakin mind!

I can't wait for you to get back and start the real TR now! I'll look forward to hearing all about it!

Safe travels home.

Safe trip home. I SO know how you feel today, but you always have us to help pass the time by until 2014 rolls around!

I've met so many wonderful people here that I don't know what I would do if I didn't have my Disney Family to help me through the months until I get "to my happy place again".

Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful adventure with us and I so look forward to the rest of the pictures/report.

SUPERB my Lovely, this trip is going to happen this time and financial security and my children's educational welfare will not stand in my way "As God is my witness, they're not going to lick me. I'm going to live through this (Disney famine) and when it's all over, I'll never be (Disney) hungry again" ...even if I have to sell an organ to get there .

Canny wait for the swally porn pics

Safe trip home to all
