I'm here!

I can't wait to hear more about this cruise! My DD and I were wanting to do this same cruise, but the prices were getting too high, and with me only working part time while in school, I thought we might wait a year or two and then do it!

Those horses are such beautiful animals. I have loved horses all my life. I have to make sure to have a look around Fort Wilderness the next time we go to WDW.

I've always wanted to stay at WL. It reminds me so much of the Grand Californian. So magnificent and gorgeous!

Corrina - they have these cookies at Ghirardelli's at DCA!

Aw such beautiful horses. I used to have a best friend in high school who owned a few horses so on the weekends I would go over and ride them with her. So much fun! The last 'horse' I've been on was in Puerto Vallarta on our Mexican Riviera cruise taking donkey's up the side of a mountain!

I read this all last night on my phone, but forgot to comment! What a nice and serene path there. We will have to take a go on it when we visit in September!

This is a little OT but for everyone who followed my last TR my tanzanite pendant finally arrived After a very long 10 weeks, not the 4-6 weeks I was told, I finally have my birthday present.



The earrings really don't look that light, but next to the pendant they do. The head jeweler finally called mom last week and told her they hadn't been able to find one the exact size as mine and still with the color and clarity so they had to give us one a little bigger. He said he'd send paperwork with it but there wasn't any in the box, so I'm not sure how much bigger. The stone mom originally purchased was 2.51 carats. I'm still displeased with how long this took, customer service does not seem to be their strong suit. I am happy I finally have my jewel.

I keep thinking of OKW and how much I enjoyed it. I need to figure out when I can get back there, even if it's just for a long weekend.

Thanks, I'm really excited I had thought about changing it but I really enjoy CL and I can always do VWL next December.

We both really enjoyed the walk. It was a great adventure pre-cruise. I had thought for certain MK was on our right so was quite confused to see them clearly on the left... Usually I'm really good with directions but I totally failed that day.

I loved the little nook they have of Walt's history with horses. I couldn't get a good picture but we stayed for a while reading and enjoying the pictures. Of course I loved the horses.

The whole layout just boggles my mind. I'm surprised people haven't complained enough that it's been changed.

WL really was gorgeous. This architect has such a talent. I'm so excited to see the Grand Californian.

Oh I just love horses. We have a beach out here that has wild horses that just roam, I love going out there and watching them. I can take Conner which is a bonus but he likes barking at them which is very annoying.

Beautiful! It is really beautiful.

I know you are glad to have it, and the fact that they gave you a bigger one, does not make the fact of poor customer service any better.

Mabye you can write something up about them on a review site, so others might know to review their purchases and make sure everything is perfect before leaving and that they might expect the same service if they have to return something.

Welcome! That would have been a fabulous coincidence! I booked it a couple weeks after it got released in November 2011. I hadn't even gone on the first cruise yet but was so sure we'd love cruising I went ahead and booked it. The prices really went crazy closer to the cruise. For the same category it was $1500 more than what I booked at. I ended up changing it to points because I had extra I needed to use up.

The Fantasy really is gorgeous. I'm hoping they'll start dropping prices in the next few years now that she's not brand new. I'll be curious what happens.

I was really surprised how lovely FW was, it's definitely worth a visit. It's right on the water which is beautiful, and of course I'll be back for the horses.
