Sounds like a great arrival day plan, swimming, MK and BOG! So jealous you get dinner there 3 times in 8 months.

Yay!!! That sounds like a wonderful first day! And how awesome that you were able to snag BoG for your arrival night. I am a little stuck on the menu here, and I am not sure if anything looks appealing to us or not. Do you have any recommendations?

I don't care for O'Hare. But I grew up going out of Midway so I guess it's just where I feel comfortable. I only ever flew out of O'Hare twice for international travel so maybe that's where the aversion comes from.

I was just thinking "What happened to the CSR lady?" You are definitely turning OKW into your home. Do you book through Disney or rent points when you stay there? It's on my list. I think it looks so lovely in pictures. Of course, I haven't stayed at CSR since the refurb on the rooms. And I always come off the boat ride in Mexico wanting to run over and check in.

Going by your standing ADR at BoG, I definitely need to make this a priority!

I'm here! Page 3 but here. It was a busy day with getting the E's picked up from camp and then off to a wedding, both of which involved a good 9 hours in the car combined. YIKES! I started to read this from my phone in the car but posting is such a pain from it I try not to.

Love the arrival plans, I have to agree with you, I vastly prefer O'Hare as well. OKW, Pool, MK, maybe a turtle crawl, BoG...what a wonderful day! I am hoping for major room mojo and it just being ready for you for once.

Which reminds me...I will be out there in Oct for work so once I get that figured out will let you know!

Hi Kathy

Firstly huge congratulations on 30 years .... so wonderful

Your first day plans sound great and what a fab first dinner together

We are thinking of staying at OKW following our cruise next May, a studio near Hospitality House with a bit of luck so I can't wait to see your photos!

We've not tried OKW before but I think it will really suit us, just got to wait for the 7 month DVC booking window to open

Looking forward to reading along!
