Oh you know I'm on board for this one! Maybe I can get caught up on my TR and we'll both be reporting on HHI!

I'm here but I am a little disappointed about no South of the Border pics. Just kidding.

Great start.

Hi Y'All

I'm not from the south, but I loved that saying while we were in HHI.

Welcome to everyone. I will do individual replies once we get home!

We arrived last night to our top secret off site location here in Kissimmee. Our accommodations are actually quite nice considering I paid $72 a night for our room. Actually - its not a room, its a 2 BR condo. Haha! It's huge and fairly convenient to the parks. I hope this ends up being a good alternative to onsite if we ever have to do offsite again.

We did go to Epcot last night. It seriously poured here all late afternoon and evening, but stopped in time for Illuminations.

Our flight ended up circling for an extra hour, so our normal 2 hour flight turned into a 3 hour flight.

Anyho - I'm enjoying coffee right now - not on the verandah, but on this cool little desk in my living room. Hope to drop by from time to time with updates and I'm updating on Facebook!

Have a great Sunday!

All caught up! Trip seems to be off to a good start but I can hear that ominous music playing.

Glad your WDW trip is off to a good start as well and that you are liking your undisclosed location. Super happy you got to see Illuminations last night. That's my favorite.

Have fun!!

2BR for $72 a night, WOW! Hopefully you don't have to stay offsite too often but at least you got a fantastic deal.

Sorry about the prolonged flight and the rain.

Thanks for checking in, hope the weather today is better

Another MEK TR!! I'm interested in your offsite experience. DD and DSiL just returned from a work seminar for DSiL's work and stayed offsite. They went to DD twice and then to MK on Friday. I guess we've made them onsite resort snobs because they said numerous times they were spoiled with the transportation options staying onsite using our DVC membership!

Hey!!!! I'm old too!

I hate driving as well. As I have gotten older I just despise it so much. But I think a 10 hour drive would be doable. But not likable.

I am here! So excited to see what happens.

Since you like y'all, make sure you add another southern phrase to you vocabulary. When you want to invite someone back, just say y'all come back now, ya hear?

Finally over here.

Love the intro - you are not old-

You got your "f" in shift back. But still not in the right place to take away your censored status.


Glad the rain has gone away and you are finding off site a good option. Heck the price cant be beat.
