Great start! Love the historical reenactments - I am a big history buff - Your costumes are incredible!

I'm with you on the room change, but glad it was otherwise good. - how was the view?

Oh, how I love a park with no waits!
It is so much fun having you along! History is my strong suit, I love it. One problem for me is when I see clothing that is so wrong it drives me crazy!

Another sewer here, although I never made a dress from curtains and it certainly is a great idea. Your historical costumes are great.

It's been 7 years since I stayed at AKL on a trip with my family and staying at that lodge was a special treat for me. I love wildlife and I LOVED AKL. You didn't say if you had a safari view room. My DD and I couldn't spend a moment in our room....cause we were perched out on the deck of our safari view room watching and taking pictures every moment we were in the lodge. I can't wait for the day I can stay there again when visiting WDW.

Great start. I have noticed that bridge only rocks off and on and not always. I beleive it did for us in Nov. because I remember my nieces eyes getting really big when it happened. I think it's the first time it has done it for many years though for us.

We just love AKL, but my cousin stayed and she had some issues with it too.
I can't wait to hear more!

Joining in for the ride! Which apparently may be a fast one since you don't need fast passes! I love the costumes, beautiful and what a neat thing to share!

Off to a very good start, I love AKL/AKV and AK is one of our favorites as well. It is just a magical and very different experience staying there, I really think everyone should do it at least once.

Glad to have you joining in. AKL didn't hold much interest for me, but once I was there I really felt the love. Bob also liked it a lot. We did a fair amount of resort time this trip.

AKL certainly has a different feel to it. So laid back & the CMs were so nice.

Glad you like my historical clothes. I try to make them as correct as possible. I also do hearth cooking demos, which I really enjoy.

Happy to meet another sewer. About all of the sewing I do now is historical. I use a lot of curtain fabric to make historic clothes.

We had a standard view, but spent a lot of time at the lobby overlook. The night viewing was awesome.
