I didn't have the chlorine concern, so I must have simply chickened out.

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the pool considering I had tried so hard to avoid it in June and again in October. Not really sure why I was avoiding it all that time?

It's such a cool resort. I just love it there. I am glad its so geographically accessible for me. It definitely makes it a "go-to" place.

We all need more points Glen!!!!!!! I hear you on that! It is a great resort. I hope you get a chance to visit! It's totally worth it!

I know airfare there from Philadelphia or Baltimore is higher than flying to Florida, so I understand the challenge. Both Charleston and Savannah are such great cities and both are fun to visit, so flying into either place would be a win-win.

It was pretty cool. I didn't post those pictures yet. I have to do a whole report I think.
Sounds great. Now I just need the points to use there. :

Boo for Cynthia's last day!
Yay for some pool time and more F&W - who doesn't love cheese? Now I'm craving some.

Love the HHI pics! What building were you in? Looks like it was near where we were.

So very sad to see you go, Cynthia. How sweet of you, Mary Ellen, to give up Soarin' for more time with your DISfriend!

Those HHI pix make me long for a trip there someday!

Hm, I thought I had commented on the HHI post, but somehow I can't see that post, so maybe I did not.

Just wanted to say that you are such a good friend to give up Soarin for Cynthia.
I just loved to see the HHI photos. Not very likely we will go there any time soon, so this is MY way of visiting. Thanks for sharing.

Well you totally took one for the team as I know it was my call to go to the clown pool and I know it was not your first, or second choice. I definitely played the "it's closest" card



But I'd gotten such a great vibe from it from our balcony I was dying to visit it. I'd actually put the villa pool as my least favorite of the three.

I hear ya sister. You basically have to give up a trip to stay there. When our friends decided to go it made my point usage go up by 2.5 X, but when I extended the stay I booked on cash and we split it. Much more affordable that way.

Borrowing......always borrowing.....(said in my best Roz voice from Monsters Inc.)

Why do you think we are staying entirely offsite in June, Because we would have had to borrow even more points than we already have. It would have ended up leaving us to less than 2/3rds of our total. When I suggesting just borrowing for two nights Denny said no. We need a year of just using studios and not inviting other couples and then we will be caught up.

Boo is right for Cynthia's last day. I hated to see her go.

I actually got double pool time that day because I went back to the inn pool after she left.

We were in building 17. Last time I was in building 22, whichhad a better marsh view and was super close to the pool.

Building 17 had a decent view and it was super close to the parking lot. I think it was so nice that they gave use a choice of buildings. I really appreciated that.

It was so funny because I kept going to the wrong building whenever I came back from the pool. I would walk past 22 and make a sharp right and ended up at building that faced the same direction as 17. One time I literally walked right up the steps, put my card in, and wondered why I couldn't get the dorr to open. Really?

Both great updates! Cynthia, I think enjoying the F&W Festival one last time was a great way to bring the Disney trip to a close. Especially since all your choices looked and sound delicious! I'm adding that dish from Canada to my "must try one day" list.


It's hard to pass up a Soarin' FP, Mary Ellen, but I think in this case relaxing by the pool and visiting was a good choice.
Your HHI pictures are great, and I'm glad you were able to extend your stay and get the opportunity to enjoy your time there a little bit.

Great updates last day is never easy, at least you were leaving late Cynthia I didn't miss the tshirt reveal did I?

You guys tried so many delicious looking goodies

Love the HHI pictures Mary Ellen. I'm still trying to figure out when I can get there. Might have to squeeze in another long weekend trip next year.

Thanks. Glad you liked the pictures. I will probably do a more comprehensive TR at some point. I think I'll combine it with my June TR.

I'm actually really glad I went to the Clown Pool. I'm not sure if I ever would have because I thought I was going to hate it. But I loved it. How could I be so wrong about something?

Noshing around the world was a great way to end the trip. I just loved F&W so much. I can't believe how much fun it was.

All good things must come to an end

All good things must come to an end.

I really don't like that saying. Why do they? Why should they? I don't like to think of endings, I prefer to think of new beginnings and next time. Or, until we meet again. But since I leave for Aulani in TWO WEEKS I need to wrap things up here, and over on my other TR so...WAH...here I go!
Before it ended, pool time, as you all now know, was in order. First though, I wanted to take a picture of the picture in the elevator lobby. For some reason it always made me smile when I walked by it.





And then...the NOT SO CREEPY Clown!

Who Brooke calls George though I have no idea if that is really his name.





These folks look like they wanted George to get them...or their kid was stuck. I can't quite figure it out as they seem level with the slide opening!





Token not so creepy clown pool shots taken to document what we did, I simply lounged and relaxed with Mary Ellen, soaking up my last few hours. I do recall at some point, and even more than one I think, during the day I had issues trying to check in either via the Alaska Airlines App, or their website. I needed to pay for my bag and the app had no feature for that so once I selected I wanted to check a bag, boom, it would hold it up. And for some reason the online check in was an issue. I honestly don't remember what I ended up doing but if memory served I had to take care of all of it at the counter.

The Depressing Express. I did have an awesome driver though, wish I could remember why I thought that but I seem to recall him being amazingly chatty, in a good way.



WAH!



I checked my bag, whined about my issues and basically got a "yeah" we agree, it sucks and we are sorry. It’s a known issue and we aren't sure why they aren't fixing it. Lots of empathy but that's about it.

Just a small line at security







But since the Depressing Express makes you leave a full THREE hours before your flight, even with check in and security issues, I still had time to stop my my new traditional pre-flight location.





I gotta tell you, for airport food it's a darn good margarita and guac! Not to mention a nice place to wait an hour. On our flight home in August (spoiler) we got takeout from the same spot for the plane.

Soon enough though it was time to get on my plane which thankfully had no delays. And although the last thing I needed was food, I have to admit, I am a sucker for the menu on Alaska. It is all really tasty and really reasonable and I figured I would be hungry by the time I got home and so...



Yum!

I should have worked on the plane. I had my laptop for that very reason. I did work. Just not the way I'd planned. Instead of "work work" I did Cynthia work. Which meant bee in the bonnet spreadsheet crunching.

Crunching what you ask?

The cost difference to add on at BWV instead of SSR like I'd planned.

Yep. The clown was THAT not so creepy. I might even be a little bit in love with him!

For those of you following my other TR you know how this story ends. We did add on at BWV though it was not without drama. We are booked to spend next New Years Eve in a Boardwalk view 2 bedroom. Can you say excited?????

Woot!

Before I get to the reveal I thought I'd run a contest. So up next....Guess the Tee!

Continued in next post

Guess the Tee!

Continued from previous

I went to the World with a mission. A guilty mom mission but a mission nonetheless. Yes…I felt compelled to not only bring my children spoils from my trip but I also allowed them to have input in what they wanted and what I should look for. It turned into a pretty fun thing with me texting pictures of tees to Jeff's phone, Jeff showing them to Evan and Eric. It kept us connected while I was gone, and they could literally see where I was, by the pictures I was sending over.

They had been very specific with some pin requests and while I didn't detail it out (as I lost the list lol) I spent a good chunk of time the last 2 days searching for certain pins and trading like a maniac. On the shirts however it had been pretty simple. I was to look for:

1. Shirts from favorite rides (Eric)
2. "Funny" shirts (Evan)
3. Anything else I thought they might like.

Somehow they still think Mom is all knowing when it comes to stuff like that and always gets it right. Which is great...until it isn't. As they age, they are pickier and at $24.95 or so a pop, I wasn't taking chances stuff I "thought" they’d like even if I do get it right about 95% of the time.

I considered going back and posting all the tees. But...frankly there are SO many that I took pictures of I figured it would be easier to just look through the posts where I showcased them. Hopefully I didn't miss any!

Which shirt did each boy pick? Feel free to list 2 choices in order of preference as while they did get their first choice as a souvenir, Santa brought them their second.

Bonus points if you can guess the “why”

Double bonus points if you can guess any pins (or maybe triple as I don't think I mentioned a darn thing about it).

I have not included myself in the contest as honestly I didn't take pictures of most of the things I was eyeing...so that didn't seem fair.

I fell asleep with my computer on my lap and I woke up with you update. I'll be back to vote on T-shirts. I've got to give this some thought because I have absolutely no idea.

I have told the kids they have to call the wedding off as they are really messing up my DIS time.

Great updates, ladies.

Cynthia, I agree...I prefer to look at it as "until we meet again" as I hate goodbyes.

And I'm sorry...it's still a scary clown pool.
