Thank you!

Thank you, Heather, for the picture!! I remember one of our early trips going with my mother and sister and staying at some roach coach motel out on the expressway. The room rate was like $25 a night, and we thought we were livin' large because we were "at Disney". We took the ferry over from the TTC and I thought how much I would love to stay at the Poly and Contemporary. Now I won't stay anywhere else but on the monorail!! LOL!!

Thanks everyone for the well wishes. You all have already made me feel better about my last minute change. I posted on the Grand Floridian thread that I will try to get some pics up next week. I'll only have my Iphone, no laptop, but if someone PMs me with their email address I'll forward them on.

Woo Hoo to those getting out of school today. I'm a teacher...we've been out for just under a month, but we go back a lot sooner than you all do. Yeah for the last day of school!!

Everyone have a great day!

Me, too That's one reason we usually do our Disney trips at the end of May or first of June....not quite as hot and the crowds aren't too terribly bad.

I was the same way. Growing up, we went to WDW pretty much every year, sometimes twice each year, but we never stayed at a monorail resort, we visited them, but I always wanted to stay on the monorail line. Now my DH and I have stayed at the Poly 3 times now, going back in 76 days, no, I'm not counting, LOL. I had thought about staying at BC for this trip but I just can't bring myself to stay anywhere besides a monorail resort, especially the Poly, haha.

I'm sure you will love the GF!!

Hi everyone!! Welcome to Summer!!!

That is a thought too...I was looking at the Flying Fish menu last night too...something with a good children's menu would be awesome. :-)

Morning everyone! Well...I've decided to add another night to our vacation for a better flight home the next day. I just couldn't stomach the idea of leaving AKL at 5 in the morning..ugh!! So...I thought maybe I would try a new resort for a day and night before our flight out. Was thinking Coronado or POFQ..not much of a price difference for what I chose, now just need to pick one. Plus it would be nice to check out for future trips........Thoughts from all of you would be awesome to help me decide! Thanks in advance!

I can't wait to stay there. A girl I grew up with (well she graduated hs with my brother, and I was friend's with her brother) just got back from a stay at the AKL last week. They loved it!! She keeps telling me that I am going to love it.

Now it seems he can see close up and far away but his middle distance is not good and he has to go back to wearing them all the time.

Now I kinda think maybe he brought this on himself since after the surgery he was suppose to use eye drops daily but stopped after a few weeks.
Sounds like my DH. After his lapband surgery, he was supposed to go for weekly fills. Well they didn't put anything on his skin to numb the pain and he said they had to stab the needle in pretty hard to get through the plastic of the fill area. It hurt him enough that he could make it through a short doctor appt, the drive home, and then went straight to bed for the rest of the day. He stopped getting them, and now he's back to his pre-surgery weight (at least).

Personally, I really like the look of Coronado.

Well I'm just really getting my day started. A guy really ticked me off in game last night and I didn't fall asleep until about 4:30 AM. I don't know how many times I have to tell this person that I do not do operations with children for him to get it through his thick skull. It's like he's trying to bully me into it. I guess he's never tried this with a strong willed, hard headed, Texas woman before, because he doesn't realize it won't work with me. I'm seriously so ticked off about it, that if the DH gives me the ultimatum that I have to give in and do Ops with this kid, or lose my WDW trip, I'll get on the phone and cancel my WDW trip.

Willows POFQ and CSR just happen to be the only 2 Mods we ever stayed at, we loved them both staed at POFQ 2X in fact but I think now that CSR has the Business Class CL it is a clear winner. Preferred Castias 1 is a great Location too.

Hi Wookie! YOU'LL LOVE AKL!!!! It's definitely home for me, and my family favourite resort thus far!!!
I am having a hard time deciding between heading over to Kidani to try it out, minus club level OR staying at BWI next January 2015 -- such a hard choice!

Ginny - I think I agree with you so far BWI deluxe club level room is looking like the slight edge this trip -- I think location will be of paramount importance to my teens....and might just be the reason to go with BWI/ they are night owls, and I know they will want to hit the parks on their own so I think location/ and being on the boardwalk might be the best place for us in this case.

My DS 21's GF is graduating tonight!!! / my DS bought her a lovely corsage for the event and poor guy, he went to give it to her today and it's browning around the edges of the petals on the rose/ also the flowers are beginning to brown, and he just picked it up last night/ kept it in a cool spot, but the flowers are not doing well. Thankfully where he bought it is owned by a lady who is a Teacher Assistant at DS's gf's school -- and she's agreed to make a new one and bring it to Grad, as she's headed out to Grad tonight too -- saved the day!! DS was getting grumpy when he saw the state of his gf's Corsage!

ONE more graduation to get through next year! My DS17's and then we will be having the time of our lives on the grad trip in our favourite place!! I can't wait....I see the ticker going down daily -- it's at 587 days today!!! but I know how fast time flies, so I'm not too concerned! I just can't wait!

Candace/ PAS: those pics of WL are making me want to look into a WL deluxe room too, LOL.... that pool looks so lovely!!! oh my...... what are the deluxe rooms like at WL??? as spacious as BWI??? Would anyone whose stayed at either be able to chime in on their favourite?? BWI Deluxe or WL Deluxe!???

Marie

I thought I'd come back to 8 pages of posts! You all have been quiet ... far. too. quiet. That makes me worry.

Melissa: How're you feeling today, my friend? (Somethings going 'round here too, my throat's all scratchy and junky. Thought we'd get some respite with school being out.)

Yeah. I blame the BC on the Epcot Area Love. We had our first stay at the Poly, then a split between BC and Poly. We kinda just fell in love with the whole Boardwalk area. As much as we adored our stay at AKL, when we took the boat over from DHS a few weeks ago, hubbo said to me how "It doesn't really feel like Disney unless we're over here." When HE is willing to admit it, I know it's serious.

You don't need to expand your horizons at all -- you just need a SPLIT! (Ending with the monorail resort of your choosing!) Would you guys be up for a split?

Softshell crab always makes me giggle. The first time my husband ordered one, I almost died laughing at his face when the waitress sat the plate down in front of him.

Ahhh, I'm going through some pangs of seafood withdrawal right now.

The last time time we were there the server didn't "play her role" at all and as you very well know, the tables are very close together there in those rooms and we had a family smack dab next to us who, let's just say, wouldn't have been our first pick as table mates. Also, the menu seemed to have shrunk to airline menu proportions, so need to return for us. However, we did grab a desperation milk shake at the bar last visit and all went well.
This. I missed getting a PB&J. Need a return visit in October. Since I discovered the Tune-In accepts TiW, I did go back in just to order pretty, take-away drinks from the bar.

We now prefer to walk from DHS to Epcot and instead eat there.
Is SFDI super loud? I'm one of those rare "like to talk during dinner" types and the seating there isn't conducive to this malady of mine, I'm guessing?

Ah, that's one of the other things we picked up! The kiddo picked out a pink scuba diving owl for my car (pink is so not my color ) and a green owl with flappy wings for the hubster. Not sure the scent I picked out was strong enough ... or perhaps my car is too funky for it to work properly.

I'm seriously so ticked off about it, that if the DH gives me the ultimatum that I have to give in and do Ops with this kid, or lose my WDW trip, I'll get on the phone and cancel my WDW trip.
Which game is this? Is this a grown-up forcing you to group with a kid in-game? Our last MMO was Rift, even there we had a small guild of people that have known each other from back in '99-00 when we all played EQ on the same server. We are -- as a group -- all so old and ornery we can't stand playing with "new" people anymore. Only thing the hubster and I are playing at the moment is Borderlands split-screen on the 360.

Hi y'all! Can't remember if I told y'all I changed from BWI to CR Tower Room? Then today I realized for an extra $29 we could do AKL CL (we are suckers for CL) but decided to stay at CR, b/c we love being on the monorail line & love the MK area..

I am just worried about his health with all that weight (he wears a 6 XL shirt). Before he had the surgery, the doctor told him that if he didn't get the weight off, he would be dead by 40. I told the DH that me wanting him to lose weight isn't about him getting back to that 220 lbs of pure muscle I married (although I wouldn't complain if he did ), it's just about him getting healthy and me not worrying all the time about when he is going to die.

If the DH pushes me on it, I will. He has in the past said that if I stop doing operations with him, he cancels our WDW trip. Well I'm not budging on my "no kid" rule, so we'll see. I would seriously rather cancel the trip than be forced into something.

I am having a hard time deciding between heading over to Kidani to try it out, minus club level OR staying at BWI next January 2015 -- such a hard choice!

I really think we will. The pictures of it look amazing. When I found out the man that designed it, also did the WL, I knew I would love it.

It's Star Wars: the Old Replubic, an MMO. When we joined the guild, the only reason I agreed to, was I was told it was over 18 only. It's not like the guys didn't know I refused to raid with a child. I have said it over and over. Well someone messed up and accidentally invited this kid (15 years old). I don't raid with children for a couple of reasons.
1) they are not reliable. If mom (or dad) wants them off the computer, no matter if we're mid-boss fight, they have to get off. I played WoW with one 15 yr old that his dad would literally cut the power to his room to force him off.
2) and I know you can understand this...You get a bunch of gamers together and the vent chat is exactly what I would call PG (or heck even PG-13 for that matter). It can get pretty X-rated quickly. I noticed they created a "PG only- no cussing" vent channel, but I thought it was made for one of the officers to do stuff with his kids in game. Well turns out that was their solution to my "no raiding with kids" thing. They though it was all about the vent chat. They would put him in that channel, have an officer in both channels, giving him the info he needs, but that is just stupid.
I knew this kid was signed up for the raid, but I figured the guy running the raid would rather have my heals than this kids dps. Well this one officer, who has made it his mission to make sure this kid gets to run whenever he wants, took over this other guy's raid and started doing the invited. Of course he invited the child first and then me. As soon as I saw the kid was in the raid, I got out of the group, got out of vent, and logged from the game. The DH did end up leaving the run, because he thought it was bull that this one officer is trying to force me to run with this kid. Luckily, my sending bad thought their way worked and they had a really hard time on an operation, that had my DH and I been there, would have been a cake walk. Hopefully, they learned their lesson. We'll see when I log in tonight. Honestly, at this point it has become as much about me not raiding with kids as it is about me being ticked that this person is trying to bully me into doing something he knows for months I have said I wouldn't do.

Now it seems he can see close up and far away but his middle distance is not good and he has to go back to wearing them all the time.

Now I kinda think maybe he brought this on himself since after the surgery he was suppose to use eye drops daily but stopped after a few weeks.

So sorry to hear this....I did decide on Coronado resort...hubby has been wanting to try it..so this will be a great chance to do just that.

Missoutandabout.... Saw you in the other thread!! Still confused as to whether the coffee change has happened...hubby is not a nescafe man! Need to make sure he has that morning "real" coffee!

Chimo2u...I can't wait to try AKL and CL...it's so exciting! Of course being part of this thread has me thinking about ALL the resorts I MUST try.. Thank God my husband likes me!

Letthewookiewin...My hubby and I could use a little "get healthier" in our lives...It must be difficult, because we can only take care of ourselves in the end no matter what...Thanks for your input on the Coronado...I went with that...it looks amazing..just like the rest of WDW!

I have been to Gettysburg a few times and absolutely love all that history stuff! You will have a great time!

My husband has come home way early today, so an actual dinner is being cooked tonight...I've been eating alone far too much lately (toast, cereal...ect...) and am looking forward to two plates and a husband tonight. He is exhausted...he needs a Disney vacation.!
