But don't forget AP at the Wilderness Lodge - so beautiful and the food is consistently good. And a nice boat ride there and back.....ahhhhhh, need to book that for our next trip!!!
Thanks for your review of The Wave! I think we will try it to experience all we can of CR. AP is definitely on my short list as well ... DS and I stayed at WL twice and each time he was way too young to enjoy the food or the atmosphere. Thus, I spared the other diners a miserable evening by not booking there...and I never received so much as a "thank you" (lol)

Wishes she could take photos of the castle as well as the photos DALE (of Chip & Dale) takes.
I wanted to regale you all with tales of my DH's saggy greyies

Do we have a time frame for the renovations? I see something in the first post, but maybe I'm reading it wrong as I think it states that everything should be already done?

Wonderful! Can't wait to see your review of The Wave, and any menu suggestions would be very much appreciated! Enjoy the Flying Fish!

Thank you for the studio pics! And the lake views too! I've got a studio booked for October but worried we will be too cramped. Rented points so can't change but hoping it won't be too bad. Love seeing all the storage space!

Great photos, thanks for sharing. I'm going this summer, so excited

Do you guys walk to MK or ride the monorail? I'm just wondering

Just FYI - decided to switch to AKL for our August trip. So if anyone wants to upgrade to a deluxe room, they are available 8/2-8/8. (Well, one will be as soon as my TA makes the switch anyway)

Well it's that time....

We will be leaving the CR around 10:45 for the airport. Just an FYI....although we take a car service to/from the airport, we bring our luggage down to ME approx 3 hours prior to flight departure and then we don't need to worry about the luggage until we reach our final destination.

Leaving is always so difficult. Our autistic son always seems to go thru a "gagging" bout to and from the airport. We constantly try to "snap" him out of it by trying to engage his mind on something else but doesn't seem to work most of the time. This is probably my only stress with traveling. Someday I hope he gets over this.....poor kid.

Of course the weather is beautiful now, and will be for a while....so those leaving ENJOY! We will be bringing home the nasty weather with us back to Boston lol. You're welcome.

We ALL hate leaving so we know just how you feel right now - but you'll be back next at BLT, right? You have some additional challenges with your DS and I can only imagine how stressful the trip home might be for you. Does he like to talk about his trips? Would he be okay talking about the monorail? Maybe he could focus on listing all the colors he rode in this trip and the Ironmanorail and which monorail cards he has? You're a great mom and it's wonderful that your son has been given the gift of Disney.

Smart ME luggage tip!

I totally feel your pain, my DS starts the count down until we leave from the second morning we are there. His last day is usually miserable. We had to tell him that if he was going to get so upset about leaving and let it ruin so much if his trip we would not return. Harsh, I know. But he finally started to get it and we just focus and his what were his favorites and what we should do next time. Although this last time we didn't have a next time planned Getting in their head can be so difficult sometimes.

Have a safe trip back! Hopefully Logan isn't too crazy anymore.

I had looked at a split stay but DH nixed that idea. But of course after looking into AKL, I really wanted to stay there and thought it might mean a bit more relaxed vacation this time around. It also meant I could add another night for the same price! :-)

Oh cool, that worked out perfect for you guys. You'll love AKL, we had a great stay there! It is definitely a relaxed environment.
Have a great time!
