Yay Missy!!!! Great start!!!!!!!! I LOVE all the pics!! We drove to FL from Philly this time and parked our car, never moving it (well, except to take my daughter to centracare for a stubborn cough and fever). I LOVED the bus service from AOA. We only ate at resorts on the monorail so that wasn't an issue at all. Can't wait to read more!

Hi Missy! Loving the report so far! This is Kelli from the FB page! Our dates match up exactly to yours so I can't wait to hear about it from a different perspective! Love the matching Mickey/Minnie hoodies!

We have done both ME and had a car. The last couple of times we went as a family, we drove instead of flew.
I have to say that having the car really made dinner ressies easy. It was really fast to drive on over to the resort and then be able to just jump back in the car and head to Boardwalk or POR for some evening entertainment. Not having to wait for the bus was awesome!
We never had any trouble being allowed to park at the resorts for dinner, shopping, or just a wander around.
The drink was lovely (it's 5 o'clock somewhere, right?). That's how we felt about having a car. It made getting to other resorts so much easier!

Love all of the photos so far! Our trips overlapped by a day (we left the morning of the 27th)... Anyway, can't wait to hear all about yours! Our in-laws were there while you guys were, interested to see how your trip was in terms of crowds in comparison to our trip!
Hi Danielle! Thanks for coming on over!

Wow, driving from Philly?!?!? Seriously, that's an accomplishment. I can totally understand why you wanted to park your car after that long of a drive.

I've actually heard the values have the best buses. It really annoys me that Disney often has all five Epcot resorts share a bus. That's kinda what spurred me to look into the rental car in the first place.

It was kind of funny, Franklin wanted to use the GPS on his phone no matter where we were going. I kept asking him, "do you see all those purple signs that tell you exactly where to go?"

Definitely sticking around for this one! The Boardwalk is my family's favorite resort - we love it!!

And I really liked your picture of the arch! I'm no photographer, but I especially liked the angle at which yours was taken

Woot-yeah! I love a good TR!

You two seem like a fun couple! Lookin' forward to the rest of the trip report. The comment about Franklin wanting to use the GPS and you telling him to look at the purple signs sounds like me and my husband, it cracked me up!!!

I totally get why you love it, because we do too! Seriously, this trip totally reinforced our decision to buy DVC at BW, it really does feel like home to us.

Awwwww, thanks! You seem like a fun TR reader. It cracked me up all trip long that Franklin was so worried about getting lost. Disney World literally has the best signage on the planet!

Joining in! DH and I love Disney and are staying at BWV for the first time this fall, can't wait to read all about it! We've also morphed from super-commando-visitors to much more relaxed, some of our favorite days have involved only doing a few attractions and just soaking it all in. We'll have our DD with us for the first time this fall, so that will be a whole new adventure

Great start to the TR! Your matching sweatshirts are so adorable.

You did get a great photo of the arches! It can be so hard to do, but sometimes the heavens align and they come out great. How did Franklin manage such a great shot too WHILE DRIVING?!?!

Excited to see his photos of the resort.
