Rode TT 2x today and soarin only once. Long waits. Lunch at LC was good! More later...
Rain- bummer !! I bet it beats the weather her though. Hope DS gets to swim before you leave. When do you leave?
Can't wait to hear about TT. thanks for checking in... I was bored.

Glad to hear you are still having a good time! I really hope it warms up so you guys can use the Poly pool. Hope the crowds aren't too bad tomorrow! Can't wait to hear about the new TT!

Have fun!

Hello! Can't believe it is our last night at the Poly. I'm so not ready to go home.
The weather was absolutely perfect today! Finally got to use the Poly pool. Dinner was at Ohana. Very good!
Lots of stories and pics to share! Hope you all had a good week.

Hey Shelly! I can't believe it's your last night either! The week has flown by. I guess it's mostly because Christmas is right around the corner, and I'm not finished with my shopping. I'm so glad y'all are having a good time and can't wait to hear all the details!

Hey everyone!

Just got home and the suitcases are sitting there sad.

Just heard from Shelly- they are almost home. Welcome home guys!! We miss y'all!

My trip was good- it was a lot of fun seeing Shelly and Fam but we didn't get to spend a lot of time together.
It felt like I was always running to go meet my InLaws or off to an ADR. I have to say that while it was a good trip, it wasn't the best for me.

I think lots contributed to it, but nothing that was a stand out. Crowds maybe. They were bad, but they just seemed to be standing around, if that makes sense. Wait times for rides were somewhat reasonable but it was hard to feel the magic with tons of people around.

I also had the pleasure of attending a Disney Fairytale wedding at the wedding pavilion with the reception at the Grand last night into the wee hours, so I'm pretty tired. It was beautiful and I hope to do a TR when I can squeeze it in. I do have a TON of stories-------

Enough....

Welcome Home Shelly!!!!

Hope you guys had a great trip and I can't wait to read about it!!

Welcome Home Shelly!!!!

Welcome home Jodi!
I'm glad that you had a good trip, sorry it wasn't the best though. We noticed in November also that the crowds for the same week from last year to this year got significantly larger. It made for a "not as enjoyable" vacation, although we still had a wonderful time. I am so nervous about the crowds on this next trip. We are planning a lot of resort time, so hopefully that will help.
Can't wait to hear all about your trip!

Welcome home to Shelly as well!

Sorry your trip wasn't the best but I know what you mean we just came back a few weeks ago and I feel the same way!!!! It kind of stinks when you plan for so long and it turns out like that, I guess we can only hope for a better trip next time. Welcome Home!!

Hi Jodi! Welcome back to reality! Glad you had a good trip in spite of the crowds. I can't wait to hear all your stories!

And hello Shelly if you're out there, too! Welcome home!

Several times this week I've wanted to PM y'all - it's been killing me!

We're home

Got here around 3:00. I'm so tired!!

All in all it was a very good trip. Did lots and had lots of fun. Poor DS11 had the most horrible rash I have ever seen in my life. So that was quite an ordeal. The first few days were very warm and humid. We got some rain mid week. We got plenty of rain actually. And a few very chilly days. Yesterday was just beautiful - warm and sunny and not humid. The GF was nice. I liked it, but didn't love it. DH didn't think it was great. It's definitely not a new favorite for any of us. We all still LOVE the Poly!! Got an awesome room there in the Samoa building facing the volcano pool. We did AK, DHS, and Epcot once each, and MK twice. It was crowded, and like Jodi said - just lots of people hanging around. Weird. The wait times weren't too bad at all for us. I think we hit the right parks on the right days!! Other than Soarin, long waits for it like always and we only got to ride it once. Did the new TT 2X! It is pretty cool, but I can't really say I was overwhelmed by it or anything. The new Fantasyland is very nice. But VERY crowded!! Hard to even walk through there. Plus all the walls are still up for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train that they are still working on. We did the Little Mermaid ride 3X, it is awesome!

Had lots of fun with Jodi and family. But like she said, not enough time together!!

That's about all I can think of right now. Let me know if you have any questions!
