I'll post the answer with my next update - unless Cynthia knows it. I'm surprised no one has tried to answer it so far. The WL really is gorgeous. I really enjoyed our stay there.

It is insane and that NEVER happens to me. I am so happy we had such great spots, but now I am spoiled for June. The June crowds will probably irritate me even more.

Knowing you and all the cool places you've stayed you'll find a way to put it on your list. It is such an interesting resort with so much backstory.

I hope you get to see it. My whole goal is to get my nephews to see it. I know they will love it.

Thanks! I'm glad you liked the pictures. It's such a lovely resort and it definitely has its own magical feel. I know that its a favorite of many DISers.

Don't you hate that? The Boo to You song got stuck in my head after the Halloween parade. All I have to do is see pictures of the parade and I start singing it.

You should pm me with you tentative park schedule and see if we are in any parks on the same day. I think my brother and his family will probably buy a base pass because with 6 of them its a huge savings. I don't know our complete schedule, but I do know some of it. I am going to try to stick with them during the day time with more flexibility for Denny and I in the evenings.

Were are you staying?

We are staying off-site. I hope I don't hate it.

The lodge tour is so good. You won't regret taking the time for it. It's only about 45 minutes, but the interesting stuff you are told makes it a very cool tour. It's like a behind the scenes tour out in the open.

I kind of get why they change things up, but sometimes the original is just the best.

I think the photographers are savvy enough to avoid construction and what they can't avoid they crop or photo-shop. At least, I'd like to think it works that way.

Thanks for thinking of me MEK,I'm not out of the woods yet and unfortunately I won't know more until I see a specialist in April .I went to the dr last week n got some news that I didn't want so I decided that before I let him medicate me i'm takling matters into my own hands.At the advice of a very good friend I signed up on a site to monitor my eating n exercise habits,and made major changes,because it made me accountable it's only been a week today since that appointment and I've lost 4 pounds and my body has started to function the way it should.I'm hoping I can do this and have more positive affects.
Oh geez,when I looked at ur camera bag pic I thought you were wearing an apron.

ME I laughed so hard at you hitting the wall at Belle's Enchanted stories. and then reading Cynthia's take on the same show. just funny!

Cynthia you had great timing to see the Rope Drop show. and you both had great timing.
I love the castle pics from Hallowishes, so many wonderful ones! Pat's QOH was awesome. I don't think I'd realized just how hard Mary Ellen hit the wall at Enchanted Tales, I was clearly too busy being a total Beauty and the Beast geek.

ANYWHO...I am leaving Saturday night for HHI! Nope, I have not packed a single thing! I'm really excited to get there, but totally unorganized. I do have a food list written down, and a packing list in my head (not a good place for it). Got some stuff at work to get done, conferences for Paige, my rescheduled appt., have to do some girl scout cookie business, Paige's dance competition Saturday, bake treats for a party at work Friday...
I feel like Cynthia!!!


Just another day huh.

While we were waiting, what surprised both of us were the group of very casually dressed people waiting with drinks at the table adjacent to ours. As when I say casual - I mean T-shirts and shorts. They looked like that should have been at the bar at ESPN, not at Citricos. Cynthia and I looked at each other because we were both thinking the same thing. *Insert eye roll here* Not quite sure whether they ever entered the restaurant or not. But I'm not sure why they would have been in that area otherwise.

I remember we were cracking up at the contrast between the ESPN shirts (and their loudness which I think made them seem more out of place than the T's) and the wine flights they were having. One of these things does not look like the others...

Really though, is there another lounge at the GF besides the pool? Maybe there isn't, I honestly don't know and now that I think about it I guess there is one behind the band but if you didn't know it was there, this could seem like the only option. I think it was that the Citrico's loungs is very secluded and set back, not something you'd stumble by and as it serves for V&A as well it was, for me, one of the very few lounges in Disney that I'd have felt underdressed in a tee and shorts. All that said, it's a weird lounge if you ask me, an odd use of the space and it took forever to get our wine. Once we realized there was actually a bar inside Citrico's I know we wished we'd have gone there for our drink instead, much better ambiance

Ok that looks pretty funny with the top flap open like that, it does look part of the outfit until you realize.

GREAT WL photo's. I really do like WL although I have to admit I felt more "connected" to it when we stayed in the main lodge part as I spent a lot of time on our verandah. I think it's the verandah junkie in me, I live for those moments on vacation and the view is a biggie. I didn't mind ours in the villas but having had the pool view in the main lodge it really was a big difference. I would request if not a water view, at least that side of the building I think if I stayed there again as I'd enjoy the view a little more. I loved the actual villa though and the grounds are amazing. Just amazing.

I'm going to TRY to get my update up today, otherwise it won't be till Sat so fingers crossed. I think I can get it done.

Nanny Chairs
Placed on either side of the fireplace are the scary "nanny chairs" that were originally found on 19th century European carrousels. They were intended for adults to rest upon while their children rode the moving animals. From this concept developed the more traditional "chariot" benches. It would have been inappropriate for female nannies to even ride side saddle on a carousel horse. These reproductions were cast from circa 1889 originals, hand painted and highlighted with gold leaf. In a moment of cleverness, the two Imagineers involved in the reproductions printed their names on the back of each chair: Todd and Paul.




Totally makes sense now..... well maybe, but why are they so creepy??
I listened to that podcast, so funny that we've all been speculating on why the creepy chairs had boy names...and now we know. All I know is they look uncomfortable as heck to sit on, in addition to being creepy and they must have been tiny nannies...which isn't necessarily my impression of that era.

Yes, I might have felt differently had I seen the original first. New management felt like it had more energy to me

That's one of the things I love best about Disney. The sense that there's something else around the corner waiting to be explored.


I agree. Part of it is the theme. This is more exotic and transporting. But then again, we grew up on the East Coast and see boardwalks and beach resorts all the time. I'm sure people from other areas feel differently.

[/QUOTE]

I'd agree with that, part of my meh feeling about the Poly is that it's so 70's Hawaii. Which isn't a bad thing, it's a classic thing, just something I've had a lot of so don't really want it on a Florida trip. They are all hard to leave though, in different ways.

:
I do know it because thanks to YOU I took the lodge tour too! Although I'd possibly have guessed it as well simply as there isn't a shortage of totem poles around here and I've been exposed to a fair bit of Native American history growing up as a result.

You got railroaded, too?

It happened to me after getting back from Mexico.

The uploading is awkward because you have to keep going back and specifying the folder or it will load your pictures into the main library.

You have to scroll through all the pictures, they haven't separated them by page.

Resizing is inconsistent. Sometimes I can get it to work, sometimes no. And I think you have to do each picture individually. I wish you could still upload everything in the size you want to use.

Uploading from Facebook albums gives you photos in a decent size, but the names of the files end up being a bunch of random numbers.

I will now call it Photo#$^it.

I have had a really hard time catching up this week!

Mary Ellen- I haven't done the WL tour (or ever been to the WL, but I would love to see it- thanks for your pictures. Gorgeous!), but I'll bite on the totem poles- Bad luck to have them facing one another?

I am glad you got a prime spot for the ELP because your pictures are amazing!


Cynthia- I loved your Tiki Room pix. The one of the sign was really striking- the colors and all.

Cute t-shirts. I look forward to seeing more. I think my fave is the one at AK with Pooh looking through a magnifying glass at a tiger "Tigger, is that you?"

Funny you mentioned adding rum to the Dole Whips. Did you see they are offering that exact thing at a booth at Food & Wine. Spoiler Alert- reports are they are NOT good!

Loved your Poly pool time. I did my first toe picture last week!!!

I am going to suggest flickr to both of you. The pro account is pretty cheap. I went with the 3 month one for about $7, but I think a yearly is like $25. It's not as easy as the the old photobucket, but still prety user friendly ...at least I was able to figure it out for the most part.

I looked at my photobucket usage the other day and was shocked I was only at 16%. I think that had to be an error as i post on 5 boards and I post a lot. And I know they get looked at, even if people don't respond.
Mine expires towards the end of April and at this point I have no desire to renew. It's sad that it came down to this, but I am not working with a site that fights me with every picture I try to link.

Totem poles don't face each other because it'd be bad juju?

With no tlimeline for it

Eric almost bought that shirt in august, I was glad he didn't as to me it is a fairly "girl" shirt but he really liked it. I'd love to be looking at that sign right now.

I'd heard they were out but not that they weren't good! I think I'll make my own at Aualani and see

Were you somewhere else warm or is the toe pic from Mexico?

I renewed fairly recently so I don't want to bail yet. I'm going to give them some time as I really don't want my stuff in 2 places and am really not sure what happens to your photos if you go down to the "free" level. I'm at 50% right now and at the rate I'm going I'd probably have several years before it's really an issue. But, when the time comes to renew I will take a hard look at what they've fixed and not fixed.

Well, I thank you in advance for really getting through to Photobucket! I didn't know I had a friend with so much pull! I look forward to using the re-enhancements. Soon!

Yes, toe pic was from Mexico. I have a little mini TR going on which is hooked onto the end of my Muggles report and I posted it there along with the background story.

I love all your pictures of the Wilderness Lodge! They make me want to make a greater effort to check it out one of these times. I love it's sister resort (of sorts!) Animal Kingdom Lodge, so I'm sure I would enjoy the Wilderness Lodge as well.

Speaking of love, I LOVE the Carousel of Progress! What an excellent final attraction choice for your evening! That attraction is not only a must-do for me, it's more like a "must do several times" attraction!

Epcot can't be beat for location, but it's hard to take actual pictures of the resorts. They are sort of "tucked in" to the landscaping. But WL always seems larger than life.

It's such a cute parade. And I really liked watching it from the front of the park instead of the back (which is my usual location).

Welcome back!

For as much as you pay for a Disney wedding it would be terrible to see it marred by construction. Even though it wouldn't show up in your pictures, its just the thought of it being there. So distracting.

Sometimes I have a hard time sending out the "bat signal" for Cynthia's updates.

I have a hard time leaving all the resorts, but I agree that both of those have this all encompassing sense to them. You really feel like you get right to their core and its hard to break free. Wait. Did I just say that?

The imagineers do such a great job of creating that sense. It really speaks to my inner child. Oh, there I go - getting all philosophical again.

True. We are definitely use to the whole beach theme. For people from the middle of the country the beach theme must be especially intriguing.

I think if you ask Denny he might say that CoP rivals Space Mountain. He just loves that attraction.

Yes, toe pic was from Mexico. I have a little mini TR going on which is hooked onto the end of my Muggles report and I posted it there along with the background story.
oh I need to get over there and check it out! yeah..I have pull.

Actually I have to admit it is very nice to actually get responses when you whine and I've gotten a ton back from them and some very personalized so while I'm not happy with the changes I am with the customer service and response which does make me want to not rush into any change

And to be honest, the past day with PB has been better. At least the size changes I am making are sticking.

And now, when I upload and want to add more pictures from a new folder, it is letting me "Upload More" to that same album instead of the library.

So maybe there's hope!

Thanks again!
