Yay Cape May! I unfortunately do not enjoy seafood... besides like the occasional shrimp and crab cake. But those rolls look good! Even if they aren't the awesome garlic ones from the past or whatever.

I did the same thing with my family. I'm like, my readers will be okay if they only see my food.

AHHH great pictures. The Epcot resort area is so beautiful it hurts.

The RFID entry is just perfection, is it not? I mean it's... perfect. (Clearly, I couldn't think of another word.) LOOOOVE. And night swimming sounds perfect. Who cares if people think you're crazy? THEY'RE CRAZY.

STACEY.

This is going to be a very interesting learning experience I see... We've only done Disneyland and I'm already learning new things even before you go to the parks! I wonder if there is a youtube video of Stacey somewhere...

Sounds like a great start to your trip! And once again I love your night/water reflection pictures. Perfection!

I have to say you are really making me miss the Epcot resort area. We stayed there for the first time this summer (during tropical storm debby) and I could see how great it COULD be if there weren't torential rains.every.day.all.day. Hopefully we can stay in that area next time (and hope for no rain).

Beautiful resort pictures. It looks so peaceful around those Epcot resorts! Never visited over there, but I've always wanted to.

Cape May dinner looks delicious! I am really craving sweets, and that picture of your dessert plate is not helping.

Mmmm seafood. My husband is allergic but my daughter & I love it. I can see a stop at Cape May in our future. I'm sure there's plenty he can still eat!

And I'd totally go for a swim at 57 degrees.

Guuuuurl, you are getting so good with that camera! Your making me kick myself for never taking mine with us, especially around the boardwalk.

I can't wait to hear all the stories and see more pictures.

Btw- Matt's hair is priceless.

Is it September yet?

Ahhhhh...it is so beautiful there at night! I love all the lights on the water, Rey and I enjoyed it on our Anniversary trip. Savannah, on the other hand, snarled and stuck her nose up at Beach Club AND Boardwalk when we were there headed to Epcot?!?! She said she wouldn't stay there if we paid her! WHA?!?!?! Insanity. I know we'll go to Beaches & Cream though, Rey RAVES about it, even to this day, and says we have to go back. Maybe Savannah will like it after she eats there. Who wouldn't love those shakes?!?!

I loooove your pictures of the beach club!!! It looks beautiful. I think we are going to rent DVC point for our next stay, and I am officially torn between BCV and BLT.

STACEYYYYYYYYYYYYY!
It's so amazing! If you rent DVC points and can snag a BWV Standard View room, it's SUPER inexpensive because the required points are much lower!

Cape May is awesome, whether or not you like seafood, there is TONS of delicious food to eat! But I can definitely see putting it off for later if your husband doesn't like seafood since that's what it's known for!

STACEYYYYY I was so happy to see her, and believe it or not, MATT was actually suggesting we put her on, too!

Cape May Cafe sounds good, but you probably need to like seafood to really enjoy it? I think a lot of it would be lost on me... But the Oreo Bon bons?? I may have to make my way across the lake from the Boardwalk to pick them up to go!

Do you that in my last 4 trips there swimming of any sort didn't fit into my plans? Plus, in November/December the air is too chilly to swim. But it sounds like they keep the pool nice and warm!

Great update! Thanks for keeping the masses entertained, in the midst of your busy life!! (lol!)
Me too, they are so perfect. I wish I was there right now.

I mean, yes and no about Cape May. I ate a lot of non-seafood stuff and still really enjoyed the heck out of it. A lot of it is based around seafood though... I dunno, I love it! And yes, you must go get those Oreo Bon Bons.

NO SWIMMING?! WAH. That's one of my favorite things to do in Disney, haha. It helps all the pain in my body after a long day in the park! We're the crazy people in the pool when it's super cold out though, so there's that, haha. They do keep the pools pretty darn warm. It's the whole part of getting out that's not so fun!

No problem, I'm glad I've kept everyone entertained, hahaha.

Hi!! I'm so glad you've joined, and it's DEFINITELY never too late! We've only just gotten this shebang started.

Amy's shoes were too cute, right?! I wanted my own pair!

Glad you're getting caught up, I'll have a new update I'm sure in a few days!

Aww yay! I TOTALLY agree with you about the mac 'n cheese and cornbread. Both are SO good there, I could totally do that same!

We did breakfast there in 2012 and really really enjoyed it, as well.

Night time in that area is one of my favorites!

It's okay, seafood aside they still have other delicious items to eat!! But you'd probably honestly enjoy the breakfast there a bit more. The rolls and cornbread were very good though! The garlic ones were AMAZING, but wompwomp, are gone.

Hahaha I actually eventually got photos of everyone else's dishes as time went on. They were totally okay with it, but that night, I didn't want to get in anyone's way of eating their food!

Yeah, I agree, that area is beautiful, both during the day and night. I love it.

Yes, I really enjoyed the RFID stuff, both getting into the room and also when paying for stuff! It was definitely interesting to see how things are changing. There were a few times where the RFID didn't seem to work out as well, which I'll get to. They are definitely still working through it all.

Stacey is awesome, always.

Haha, yeah, you should be in for quite a ride since this is all new to you! But I really hope you enjoy it and learn a lot. I learned SO much from people's TRs before we went on our 2012 trip though! I'm sure there is video somewhere online of good o'l Stacey. She gets stuck in your head when you stay at a Disney resort!

It really is beautiful! And thank you!

Haha trust me, we were very tempted since we could get in no problem, but Bruce and Amy didn't have a 10-day pass, so we didn't want to just leave them. I think if it'd been the 2 of us we would have gone to Epcot for dinner and hung out there until it closed.

Haha but you do know us well, because we WOULD have gone if Bruce and Amy had a park pass for that day! We just didn't want to make them pay to go to a park for a few minutes. If it was just Matt and I we would have definitely gone over and at least watched Illuminations!

Thank you very much! I love that area at night.

Oh man, what a bummer about all of the rain you experienced! Usually Florida rain is bad and then goes away quickly, but that just sounds awful! I hope you get to stay there again, though, because it's amazing when the weather is nice.

Thank you so much! You should definitely check it out sometime, that area really is one of my favorite places in Disney World.

Cape May IS so good. Writing a TR when I'm hungry is never a good idea. I see food photos and just get sad I can't have Disney food right now, hahaha.

You guys could totally do Cape May though, it's got plenty of choices for seafood lovers and non-seafood eaters!

It really was actually quite nice! They kept the pool very very warm so going in was delightful. Getting out was absolutely freezing.

Haha aww thanks ladyloo!! I made a very conscious effort to use it a LOT this trip. 2012 I didn't use it much at all and I regretted that!

Hahaha I'm glad you noticed his hair. It was quite amazing in person.

NO BUT IT NEEDS TO BE LIKE NOW.

It really is amazing! I love it.

That's so funny about Savannah! I find those resorts a lot less snooty than Grand Floridian.. and even then, I love the Grand Floridian. I find all of the Disney resorts pretty amazing though. I bet she'll grow a little fonder of it when you go to Beaches and Cream! I LOVE that place so much!

Thank you very much! It really is a wonderful resort. Renting points is a fantastic idea!

BLT vs. BCV is a tough choice! Personally, I love BCV because the theming is fantastic and it's so close to Epcot... and Stormalong Bay is the BEST pool you will find in Disney.

BLT seems like it has an awesome location but the theming is what turns me off to it. It just seems a little too "hotel"ish to me versus having a really solid Disney theme.

However, I do want to try staying there at some point, because I think it's unfair to judge when I've never actually stayed there. The location seems awesome, especially being that close to Magic Kingdom.
