Also, found the "secret" entrance to the IG for Epcot past the quiet pool. Wow what a time saver. DD keeps wanting to take to boats over and there's NO WAY it's closer to where we are! I wish I could draw a map. My "sign" I'm in the ready direction inside? The fish lamps, when I see them and then the Solarium, I know I'm heading in the right direction!!!!

It one of our ADR's next week.

Just back from a last minute quick girls' weekend stay at the YC to celebrate my DD's birthday, my sister's 30th birthday and Mother's Day with our mom. It was our first stay at the YC and it was AMAZING! The staff was incredible. We were assigned to room 4093, which I believe was a upgrade. On night 2, we returned to our room to find balloons, a card signed by Cinderella and a beautiful chocolate basket for my DD. What magic!

OK It's Official!

Our summer trip is finally set up. After much hand wringing and second guessing, my family and my brother and his family will be down the week of July 21st! The only thing my wife and I were debating was when we would be coming down. We finally decided on coming down Saturday morning (the 20th), with our first night at Animal Kingdom Lodge! From there, it's off for three nights at VWL, saving the best for last with three nights at BCV! I'm not really thrilled with changing hotels three times, but I'm still crossing my fingers tat one of our waitlists comes through and we get the whole week at BCV (hey, a guy can dream right?!). What I am looking forward to though is dinner at Jiko and the gospel brunch at House of Blues on Sunday morning before my brother and his family come down. I do hope it will be fun!

And yes, I seriously did have an email on that account this morning from Susan Hacker (note that name) from NIGERIA telling me I was entitled to $4,000,000 in USD.
Thanks Dee. I am going to do that. We are in room 5199 and it really is a great room. Just came back from a walk around the Boardwalk. Got the lobster roll at the bakery. Now, being born and raised in MA, just moved south in October, it was decent. Not a bunch of mayo and huge chunks of meat. My husband loved it. Just hanging out tomorrow, dinner at Yachtsman, will keep posting. If any one has questions ask and I will try to answer.

Saw some flys near Hurricane Hannah's, but not many.

Thanks - sounds like a cab to AKL is the way to go!

The only potential issue is that we'll be traveling with our DD-26 months, and won't be bringing a car seat.....?

We have had that room and the room next door. Great location and pretty great view for SV. You will have a view of Illuminations at night.

SO, Dee, you can add me to the list: YC CL GV from August 17th to August 24th. We arrive on August 16th but I am going to book one night at Pop or some other Value since we arrive at 11:30 p.m. and we won't get our luggage for a few hours anyway. I will have to really plan packing. Should be interesting trying to organize that for Amelia since she will be with my sister! I won't be able to pack for her!!! I'll have to get my sister to do her laundry while she's out there. LOL
I'm not positive, but I think if your flight arrives after 10:00 you have to pick up your own luggage. Does anyone else know if that is correct?

Ryan

You'll face the same challenge with ME or Disney buses. I flipped a lid when I found out cabs in NYC wouldn't let us use a carseat during a visit with family.
