Mom of an Aspie son here! He's 20 & amazing btw! We are dropping in on Disney for a week in April along with my 16 year old daughter. Leaving the Mister at home. He's not a fan of DW like I am! I continue to tell him something is wrong with him! LOL!
I hope to keep up on your TR. Thanks for sharing with us!
Good chance you might run into us.....all 3 of us will be at Disney at the end of April!

I think we had meant to go grab some cupcakes or food first from over in CR, but I think I messed that up. But we had a grand time anyways. I was the only one who got a drink...mmmm....not something I'd do if watching the works w/ the kids.

One of my several injuries occurred again this night too...( I had already banged the back of my thigh at my zero night hotel) as I was returning my drink glass into the lounge, I basically opened the heavy door right onto my toe...didn't quite realize how nasty till back to the room. good thing Heidi had all her foot care bandages.

The boardwalk decor and attention to detail was amazing, I loved it and kept snapping pictures :-)

I am always thrilled to see other doors or windows decorated too! I know there is a picture of our door somewhere....and actually the Halloween clings Heidi brought for our windows and mirrors!
That's right! We did stop & buy cupcakes at the Boardwalk Bakery at some point tonight, I believe. Remember the cupcakes with moldy strawberries on them that we threw away on our last day?

I forgot about your injuries... that was one nasty black & blue on your thigh!

Oops... I was thiking the decorations were yours but you're right, it was Heidi! You made us one beautiful door though!

In my opinion, pool view is the least desireable because you pay the same rate/points as boardwalk view but I loved being able to see DHS off the balcony.

I love the Halloween decorations at the MK and I think we will miss them this year since we are going mid-August...I don't think they are up that early.

What a wonderful view from BLT to watch Wishes, etc. And someone was in trouble I gather because she was on the phone again.

LOVE the view from your room of the pool without the clown (I wouldn't mid that view in December). I do love the decor of the rooms and am getting a little bit more excited about staying at BWV in December.
Glad you are feeling better Kathy! I really love the fall decorations & hope to get down there to see them again this year. I'm not exactly sure when they go up.

It was great getting to visit the TotWL with Julie's perks.

I think it's so funny that our pool view had trees blocking the clown. Loved it! You will love BWV!!

It's an AWESOME location, especially during Food & Wine!!

Great shots from BLT! We have watched 4th of July fireworks from up there.
I've sort of been following the long story... and I'm a bit nervous for Jill & her trip.

I bet those 4th of July fireworks were great from the lounge!

Day 2 Begins!

Day 2 – Thursday, 10/11/12
We started our day with a lovely boat ride to DHS. I LOVE riding the friendship boats from the Boardwalk area to DHS!
Again, I’m jumping around between different photo sources so excuse me if I get a little bit out of order.
First, some more pictures of our view:




Then down to the boats:












First stop… Beach Club/Yacht Club:






There was a bird that looked like an eagle up there on the swan:






Almost there:


Bo!





Rope drop!


What do you do when waiting in line? Take pictures, of course!








First up… Toy Story Mania!






Continued...

Based on these pictures, I think Julie & Heidi rode together, Heidi won & had the “best in vehicle” score. Go Heidi!








Next up was Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster. I think we grabbed fastpasses & rode.












If I remember correctly, the line for Tower of Terror was backed all the way up to the front gate so we had some pictures taken & did a little shopping.

At some point, we stopped at Starring Rolls and got these goodies:






Then we went over & took an animation class:




My Donald:


Group shot:


At some point, we did make it on Tower of Terror:


We had some more PP pictures taken… these were fun!








And more photopass pictures as we headed out of the park…


I’m not sure what was going on here…












Up next: MNSSHP!

Looks like a spectacular fun-filled day at HS! I especially love all the Photopass pictures. It's always nice to have those group shots.

I can't believe how great all of your Donald sketches turned out. I am hoping to do the Animation class on my trip this October...I just hope my skills are as good as you 3!

Yeah, the cupcakes do look yummy!

The Epcot resorts area is so pretty and peaceful, with just the right beach 'vibe' on the BC/YC side and just the right amount of hustle and bustle on the Boardwalk side. It's just perfectly set up, I think.

Fun group shots.

Hope you are faring well in the snow!

Loving your report, because (Shhhh, don't tell my kids, but) my most fun trips have been girlfriend trips with my "Princess Posse." In our group, I am Snow White, so I am really relating to you!

And I am sooo jealous of those darling princess hair clips! Those are fantastic!

I love having those boat rides from the Boardwalk area to the Studios...

Really does look like an awesome day...

Love your Donalds & you all looked quite brave going on RnRC...

Haven't seen the PP pic of Chip before... very, very cute...

Getting over to TSM very different experience without children in tow...

Good stuff all around...

Thanks Cynthia! The pool view without the clown was great! I agree about the goodies... I'd love a Disney goodie right now!

I'd never seen that Chip shop before - it was fun!

The animation classes are so fun!

We were off to a good start at HS that day! It was nice to stop for the PP pictures and not hear complains from my kids!

They really make it easy to draw the characters in the animation classes. They go step by step. I bet you'll do great!

I absolutely love staying at the Epcot resorts! I'm thinking it won't work out for this fall... If I go with my good friend we won't be able to book for a while. The guy I rent DVC points from owns at BWV so we usually have the 11 month advantage... we definitely weren't ready to book at 11 months this time around.

More snow coming tomorrow night!

Another Snow White! Friend trips are so much different than family trips. I love them both but it's fun to get away and just worry about myself.

The headbands were a great gift! Julie spent a ton of time trying to find the right things on etsy for us.

It was a fun morning. The fun night coming up was the best... working on our MNSSHP pictures now.

It was my first time at Starring Rolls... I'll be back!

The boat rides are the best!

Luckily we are all into the thrill rides. We had a lot of fun together!

It was nice to be able to do the things we wanted to do without the kids! It's fun with them and fun without them!!
