If they get too bad, you can always crush up some pill in their food that will knock them out.

I agree Linda! ThAt would be AMAZING! I'm looking forward to meeting both you and Christine! :-) the more I think about it, the more I'm determined to make it without my DS this time -- all girls trip is just what I need! Besides, I'm bringing that boy and his GF to WDW in jan/feb 2015 -- he can just wait the extra yr!

Candace: so happy to hear you're having an amazing time at WDW right now! Glad you are loving YC -- I still hope there's a time when you'll get to try the POly! there's a resort for everyone -- I've tried BC CL, Poly CL and AKL CL -- I still feel a pull to AKL and I'm looking forward to trying Kidani 1 Bdrm villa in 2015. Yes I'll be giving up CL, but gaining a king bed, a laundry room and more space. I also love the bus ride at AKL, so I'm excited to try akl's sister resort

This morning I was looking on my phone while we were waiting for the bus. I noticed that today, we are 140 days from checking in at the BC. I told JM this and he said, "ya know, I'm going to miss something about that Pop place." When I asked him what it was, his answer was, "the hot chocolate was so easy to get to. The place we're staying at has hot chocolate that's easy to get to, right mom?" I looked on AllEars and they don't have it listed in the Beach Club Marketplace, and I know if he can't get it at the Beach Club Marketplace, I'll just bring some and make it in the room.
They definitely have hot chocolate in the BC market.

Hello!!!

Another successful day at WDW. We did Epcot this morning, and DHS at night. (Had a nice nap in the middle). Lunch was at Via Napoli and again, it was absolutely fantastic!!

We did not do a TS for dinner. We have LOVED not being on the DDP and just using TiW instead...so much better for our family and how we eat!!! And none of that awful bloating!!!

Tomorrow morning, we have ressies at Tusker House for breakfast. It will be our first time. We have not been fans of the breakfast buffets so hoping this will be a little different...the girls just want to see Daisy Duck...

Oh, and I was in fact upgraded to LV!!! I logged onto MDE today and it showed us in a Club Level Lagoon/Pool view room. Yay for pixie dust!!!

Every ride has been a walk on, including TSM tonight!!! We went on ToT 3 x in a row with no wait!!!

Seriously having the greatest time! Missing my kitty though ....I know that sounds silly...I just feel bad for leaving him for so long....(my DFIL is going in and feeding him and changing his litter box...)

Well, that's it for now!!!

Miss I've not tried Artist Point, but it gets rav reviews. We like Narccoosses ( lobster ) and timing it for Wishes would be special. In January we tried Jiko, and really enjoyed that too.

Wookie I'd try YC CL! It's kind of exciting trying new resorts. And you wouldn't get that solid balcony!

Mousemommy I am so jealous, your trip is getting better & better. Walk on for TSMM and TOT? I have to agree on the DDP vs TIW. We did 2 trips without DDp, then in Jan we booked with the stay,play,dine promo, and really didn't enjoy it, or the bloat!! Aug is back to room only and TIW!

jennyjinx I think you should for sure post that pic and story on "that" thread!!!!

DH likes the dining plan because it means it's all paid for and you don't have to think about it. I'm trying to not be so concerned as to whether or not we're saving money and do more CS, etc. so we're not tied up with all those TS meals and be uncomfortably full.

I made my case for AKL all the way...he's thinking...

Now I guess I need to decide whether we stay at CR or if we indeed go to AKL instead. Although to stay within the budget we have now, it'd have to be a pool view bunk bed room instead of savannah bunk bed room...we'd save almost $500 that way...?

Well, that's why I leave my husband home . He wouldn't enjoy himself, so I go with my adult daughter, and meet up with my girlfriend from L.A. there. Girls road trip besides, someone has to stay home with the cats, and dog!!!

koh I am not married, but I do go with my children alone and have also brought family along. I really enjoy the solo trips! This June trip will be the first time with BOTH kids, but I think we will be alright. I may be slow getting through security but anyone who has a problem with it will just have to grow some patience. Other than that the time alone with the kids is great.
glad to hear your feeling better!

I got my tooth pulled today. My dentist may be the sexiest man alive, by the way! So he gave me a shot, let it sit for 10 minutes. Came in and topped it off and tried to start. No go. So he gave me ANOTHER shot and I saw stars! He gave me another few minutes to numb up and then he came back. It was over in less than 5 minutes, no joke. They all joked that I wouldn't feel anything for weeks. Well, 10 minutes after I left I was suddenly in excruciating pain despite the novocaine. It was so bad that I put a blanket over me on the couch and started crying hysterically. My mom called the dentist because she didn't know what to do and they said that because the infection is so bad, when he pulled the tooth the infection ruptured and it would spread before dying off. FABULOUS! I took 3 Vicodin and they barely took the edge off. I am still in pain but feeling a little better. Hopefully getting a good night of rest.

Oh ouch!! Ya think he would have warned you. The minute I get home from the dentist, if he's done any work like a filling or something, I take a Advil before novocaine wears off. Hope it settles down soon.

no your not crazy. We love AKL, it is very relaxing. The pool is beautiful, I love the secluded hot tubs, and enjoy the activities. Culinary tour, and Cultural Safari are Favs.
Are you requesting Zebra trail? We were in room 4420 ( or was it 4501? ugh.). It was one of those rooms, whichever had Arusha view, lol, Zebra trail, and if I looked down from our balcony I could see a small public balcony with rocking chairs overlooking the savanna that not many people seem to know about, shhhh! I think it may have been on ground floor? Look for it! Great place to sit and enjoy Arusha. Sorry, we had 2 rooms, the pool view, then we switched to Savanna. Both were 4th floor Zebra trail! Maybe the savanna room was the 4501 because we were further down the trail in that room.

When we aren't on DDP, I put aside the $ it would have cost to get the DDP, and when we get to the resort, I go down to the gift shop and put that $ on a gift card, and use that for our dining only. It's just like being on the DDP just show the card!
