Great update Cynthia. Love it!

All caught up! All caught up, again! (the question is, for how long. )

Love all the updates, ladies! So many awesome and fun photos to look at.

DHS sounds like a lot of fun. And I love all the pics of the T-shirts. We love to walk back to BW too! Such a relaxing walk (if you do NOT take it in the August noon heat )
The YC is beautiful, isn't it. We SO loved our stay there. And I am with you on the resort merchandise - so nice to see reappear. Unfortunately when we were there in February, the Contemporary had NONE!!!!

I love all the updates. Such great pictures!

How sad to leave WL... but I have to say where you were headed was pretty darn cool!!!

You got so much done in such a short amount of time that morning! I am in awe.

In planning for a falls girl trip myself, I am tucking away little tips about restaurants each time you mention one that was a good choice to use the TIW card. We most likely wont be on the dp, and since I have an AP now... my thought is to get the TIW card and then maybe that will save us. However... I am wondering if we should make more ADRs if a ts will come out to be not a lot more than a cs (since cs wont have any discount)

Love that you got to see the set up for a wedding reception. How cool to have a wedding and or reception there!!! So jealous of those people!!!

I stayed once... only once at the YC. so we could have used that walkway between DHS and Epcot....but we didn't. I never knew were it was and I figured it would be too long of a walk. This last trip I finally was able to walk it. It is actually not long and a really nice walk, especially on a beautiful day!

And last but not least... your tshirt pics are cracking me up!

I have to say, this post made me SO excited for the wedding planning...not only were you taking pictures of our ceremony and reception areas, but you happened to also take pictures of the 3 areas we had just been deliberating between for our rehearsal dinner! (Boardwalk croquet lawn, Boardwalk quiet pool lawn, and the Yacht Club Marina) Too funny! (Spoiler alert, we ended up choosing the Boardwalk Croquet Lawn - and your photos along the path next to it were super-helpful! )

Mary Ellen,
I am playing catch up again...Love the Halloween party pics (hat and all). LOL at the Belle pics with random guest comments! Thanks for the good laugh! Can't believe you stayed up to midnight, I also would have forgotten my mode of transport by that time as well!

College acceptances - congrats to Nick. Connor has 2 of those top three (did not apply to Maryland, applied to the smaller UMBC instead), but accepted to VA Tech and honors at UD engineering. Also accepted to Villanova and awaiting decision from Lehigh. He will be down to that May 1 deadline to decide. Keep us posted on Nick's decision!

On to finish your excellent trip report!

Just a quick reminder not to stress out about how quickly you are getting to replies!

This is supposed to be a fun hobby, not one with deadlines like in the real world, so just know we will all be here eagerly reading what you write, when you have time to do it!

Mary Ellen & Cynthia - Wow your last MK / WL day, you sure were busy. Love, love the New Fantasyland pics! Beautiful. And the the Poly pool and Citricos dinner AND back to MK. Very impressed.

Look forward to seeing your view from BWV. The quiet pool looks so relaxing.

Rebecca

I am so glad you went to Captain's Grille, and enjoyed it!!!

That is one of the few restaurants we will be dining at in July.

A couple of things-

For those not on DDP and without TiW, there is a 10% discount on meals if you use your Disney Visa
Many places also offer an AP discount, or DVC. At least ne of my apps shows which are offered at each location and it's incredibly helpful!

No but I'll need to look for it! I absolutely adore the YC and really wish they had villas.

It is a GREAT gift shop and much as I hate to say it to you, I think better than the Marketplace.

I truly adore the YC. I can't imagine using points to stay there but really would love to stay again someday but now that we are DVC I don't really see that happening, we will just have to wave from the Boardwalk. I had a lot of fun with the T's.

Definitely look at one of the apps (I can see which shows what if you like) as they will show which places have DDP, TIW, AP, DVC discounts and for what meals, it's pretty cool! We probably won't do the DDP on our next family trip and I need to determine whether getting TIW makes sense or not. My issue with the TIW is exactly that, very very few discounts on CS. Which normally would be great for us but with the mix of kids we will be doing more CS than my family normally would and so...spreadsheet time!

Great updates MEK and eandesmom!!

Way to get in there and ride the big rides before things got busy! I can't believe that line for FPs....We usually get there after the line dies down and the FP return time for TSM is like...8pm!

I love the merchanidise and t-shirt pictures. I too have walked past the HAMM shirt a time or two, but never bought it! Maybe this summer...

MEK, I must say your BW/YC pictures are incredible! We went over there and took pictures but they werent nearly as clear and beautiful as yours. How sneaky of you to catch a pic of the bride and groom! hehe...

Captain's Grill is a restaurant I always hear about, but never get over to try. I'm glad you enjoyed it. In general, I have heard that the Epcot resorts have excellent food.

Can't wait to see room pictures!! Happy St. Paddy's!!

It's such a pretty resort. I think the YC is a little easier to photograph than the BC and the BW, so I was looking for some interesting vantage points.

It's a great, secluded area. I could definitely see picking that for a reception venue. When I first went back there in June I remember thinking "Am I allowed to be here?" It seemed so exclusive.

I bet they don't sell well at all. I didn't pay attention to the price, but if I am going to spend money on a kitchen gadget it won't be something that is going to get all yucky.

I have heard good things about Captain's Grille. It sounds like they are pretty consistent and I was pleased with the food and service. I'll definitely be back.

Very quiet and relaxing and fun to think about how close it is to Epcot....as the bird flies it must be right next to it.

We did get an awesome room - stayed tuned.

It's ridiculous - but at least it moves really well.

One of my favs too. I love everything about it - the queue is fun and its a fun coaster!

I enjoy looking at Cynthia's T shirt pictures better on line then when I am there in person. I can study them better!

I dropped off the disboards for a bit, but I'm back and all caught up on your TR. sounds like you were able to accomplish a lot at HS that morning. Sorry that cookie was too sweet; it's never good when you mix coasters with a sugar high.
The walk from the park to the BWV looks so gorgeous and peaceful, and your pictures of the resort are gorgeous. Makes me want to visit the place on my next trip.
I'm sure it was a pain not having your room available until the actual designated check in time, but on the plus side, you both were able to kick back and relax for awhile. Always nice to take advantage of down time at Disney.
