Agreed... We have done the "night at the All-stars" before switching to SSR to meet my family (my parents are DVC) and cab is relatively cheap and easy. Get there early and grab a spot at the pool with breakfast... Sounds exactly where I want to be right now!! Although we had temps of 88 today... They rapidly dropped to 60 with a thunderstorm! And a cool weekend ahead! Is it October yet??? Cuz that's when we have our first stay at BC!!

I second that vote for the cab! We do a lot of split stays also and we've done pretty much every option you can think of ... the cab is the least stressful.

45 days til YC CL!

Teena, are you away helping Jeanie for the last two weeks of August? Our projected dates are August 17th to 24th.
August: Jeanne and Lily will be here in Florida with us 7/30 to 8/14. We'll be at the BC 8/5-8/9. I'll work 8/18 and 8/19 and then fly out to help Jeanne get school ready on 8/20 and return on 8/30.

I've never been to Crew Cup, so would like to try that. Ever since you were talking about those burgers and who doesn't like Cape May! We ate there our last BC stay. or you could come over to GF. Either would be fun. I'll be on monorail so shouldn't be hard for us to get to you.

That's the 19th? I'm putting it in my calendar right now!

Just want to say that I consider myself partly responsible for making this happen for you. When I read about your knee injury preventing you from the run and your unexpected household expenses, I secretly removed your name from the October list so you wouldn't be sad if you saw it.

Then, the next time I logged in, you were already scheming for an August trip!!!

That makes me so happy!!!

Tomorrow...tomorrow....

I can't BELIEVE this trip is happening tomorrow.

Anyway,
I'm bringing my macbook on this trip (which I've never done before), and I'm wondering what people's thoughts are on safety. In all likelihood, will it be fine in the room? I'm assuming it won't fit in the safe. I would like to think that putting it in one of the drawers under my clothes would be fine. Any other thoughts on this? Any YC frequent fliers with ideas on where to safely store something like a laptop?

Thanks!

DH brings his laptop every year (just can't stay away from the office for too many days ) and has never had any problems with it.

I'm hoping this year I can convince him to leave it home and actually TAKE his vacation while ON vacation..............but I'm not holding my breath!!

14 teenage boys?!? No wonder you found enjoyment in that cement corner

In MK, we love Pecos Bills! Next trip, we'd like to try Sleepy Hollow for a spicy chicken waffle sandwich.

In Epcot, I love Tangierine Cafe. My old favorite was Mexico, but last trip we had a so-so meal there. DH loves Sommerfest in Germany too. Next trip, I'm looking forward to hitting up Sunshine Seasons.

In AK, we love Flametree BBQ - we grab our food and find a table in the secluded, peaceful seating area around the fountain/pond - such a great way to recharge.

In DHS...... ... we have no favorite, to be honest!
