Our toddler slept through most of it, but now just woke up and likely not want to sleep until 10 or so. We will probably take him and my mom for some quick but nice dinner (maybe captain's grille?), and appreciate helpful advice and well wishes from all. I think our son is in love with sab (and getting a replacement spritzer fan)
Thanks for the great update. Sounds like you are having FUN! All that walking should make for some sound sleeping at night. Be sure and have the toddler take a turn pushing the adults in the stroller so he gets tired too!

Now, where oh where has Teena been? Is she visiting Jeanne?? I do hope everything is ok with her and Bob.

Dee: I can't wait to see "The Hobbit" birthday pics!!!

You must be exhausted by now!
Quick check in-

Yes, Teena is out in Vegas- tomorrow will be an awesome Mothers Day for them both!

You are right- I am exhausted! Fortunately the "Troy broke his leg" turned out to be a false alarm!

Had 9 11/12 year old boys at laser tag, now 5 remain for a sleep over tonight. The teenager is hiding far away in his room, and Mark has disappeared too. The boys have just entered the room I'm in, so I will be out of here soon as well.

I've got lots of catching up to do on the thread in the morning.

Good night, all!

Help!!!! The DH wants to be involved in the planning!! I had 8 nights book, and he wants to drop it by 1. Okay, so I'm trying to wheel and deal my way, so I said let's leave on the 13th at 6 PM and we will arrive at 11:24 at the airport. To which he counters with, so then we are staying at a non Disney hotel that night and checking in on the 14th. Argh!! The difference in price is $500, but must tack on a hotel room and probably a taxi ride to Disney, which means we can't get our KTTW cards until we check in right? How can I calculate taxi fare? I am trying to get the maximum amount of Disney time and trying to beef up my case, how should I plead?

Hi,


What's the best way to get from the BC to a monorail resort?

We have a lunch booked at the WL for 2pm one day and dinner at The Poly on a party night booked for 7pm.

I had just planned to get the BC bus to the MK and then the boat and monorail to the respective resorts.
I'm now thinking is it easier to walk/boat to DHS and then get the resort bus I need to the hotel?

Also does anyone know if the busses run from DHS to resorts at about 0800 for the same reasons, breakfast reservations or is that easier to go to MK first.

Thanks

Indeed, would be good idea! Ended up just at marketplace, but had eaten our way (or my way) thru epcot, so was fine - and those oreo bon-bons, amazing! Along with secret entrance, the greatest advice ever.

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY FRIENDS

Now, which picture to pick???

Finding Nemo? Nope!

Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty? Nah-uh.

Little Mermaid, Beauty & the Beast, Aladdin? Don't think so.

Bambi? Definitely Not!

Happy Mother’s Day to everyone! Finally have a moment to get caught up on our trip. We arrived Thursday and waited until 2 for our room and alas no full balcony, which was our only request. We are on the fourth floor with a view dead on of the windmill of SAB and the lagoon beyond that. I love our room and honestly cannot see us moving back down to moderate until the baby is bigger as it is the perfect amount of space even with a stroller and pack n play. My husband has requested that I ask to be near transportation next time as we are all the way down at the end of the building. On the best plus side, we have the BEST maid. Not only is our room been spotless and perfect but….TOWEL ANIMALS. The first night we came in she had set up the pig/elephant reading the babies book and last night we have a great big birthday cake with one of the birthday buttons and older DD giraffe hanging out on it. DH and DD have been to SAB twice and our in love. Bus service has been pretty good, no complaints, although we have avoided the dreaded Downtown Disney bus. I have to thank all of you yet again for the suggestion of Garden Grill. We ate there Thursday night and had the best time and the best server, Jeffrey. The baby loved Mickey, screamed at Pluto and was indifferent to Chip and Dale, but momma inhaled two plates of the mashed potatoes so I was all good. Friday was a MK day and we truly got a lot accomplished and I felt the crowds were very easy to manage. BOG for dinner that night was amazing. I cried walking into the ballroom because it was that magical and the food was equally delicious. Saturday was AK and it was HOT and HUMID and we rode out a thunderstorm at Dinosaur, but DH and older DD were happy because they rode Everest 7 times. Dinner last night was Boma and it was another hit. I tried to be adventurous and really wanted to like the Carrot Ginger soup, but alas no go. Zebra Domes however were a huge hit for me and DH. AKL is amazing and I think we will take more time to explore it later in our trip. Today is DHS day for Mothers day and Captain’s Grill tonight for dinner. Overall I am thrilled with BC, its location, rooms, and staff. Have a great day everyone and be back soon!
