Mom was southern, born in Florida, lived on a farm until she was 14. She always said y'all, Dad would always reply, no y'all here just me.

Great rate on the condo, makes one pause just a little, but gotta stay on Disney property.

Glad the rain has gone away and you are finding off site a good option. Heck the price cant be beat.
I noticed that too. Also noticed a picture of Denny is the parking lot.

Well...I thought I'd be on time! Guess not! I had no idea that your brother had cancelled your trip. And I am so completely intrigued by your secret off site location! And I'm more than a little curious as to how it works out for you guys. It is a tempting way to get back down there and save some serious money. My cousin went down with her fiancee for a conference a few weeks back and they stayed at the Waldorf on property and the deluxe prices make the Waldorf look like a steal. No joke. So, it makes you wonder...especially for those of us who haven't bought DVC yet.

Anyway...HHI really looks gorgeous. What beautiful pictures. What sunsets!

Yay! your new TR has started! Can't wait to read more about both trips!

Great start to the HHI part, save for the foreshadowing...

And we knew we couldn't invite the older two and not the younger two, so we decided this was going to be strictly a couple's trip.
I feel your pain and truly hope I don't find myself faced with something similar on the nephew side.

Here's our map. The buildings with the check marks were the ones that had availability. We were basically given our choice.



Just to get your orientation the dark green markings represent the marsh on Broad Creek. Given that information can you guess which building we picked?
17? How cool to get a choice!

I love that you are greeted with the Mickey glove wave, that's awesome!

Uhm…OK… I was already on my second glass of wine and when he said it was gone I really didn't give it another thought. Denny has frequent night time heartburn and I know he has GERD which he refuses to take medication for.
I didn't know about the GERD (or forgot) so wow, I can totally understand how both of you downplayed it.

No you can't. 3 of my favorite things right there! Adult beverages, buffet and yummy food. And good company!

I'm in, Mary Ellen!! I am enjoying the HHI updates. What a gorgeous area. Even though I know you had a major bump in the road on that trip, I can still enjoy your updates knowing it all turned out okay in the end!

I hope you are having fun & staying cool in WDW!

I'm here, can't wait to read along for another Disney trip! I can't believe I was supposed to go on my first solo trip and possibly meet you this week...oh well, I'm sure we will meet up someday! I'm TRYING to figure out how I can do a solo trip in the Fall, but it's looking more like I'd do it in September, not October, when you will be there. Someday!

Just popping in to say we are having a great trip so far. Staying on site has forced us to visit some different sites. I will be having a contest to guess our mystery resort,so stay tuned for that. We've seen some new sites and had some fun DIS meets

What? A trip down I-95 and no South of the Border pictures? Not even a billboard???

HHIR looks like a great place to stay. The ride in is so picturesque. I love the lowcountry of South Carolina with all the trees and moss. How great to get an oversized Mickey hand greeting when you arrived! It looks like you got a good building choice and a great room view!
