Yay!! What a surprise again dismeet, that's awesome! Lol.

YC is too gorgeous to be true, like, I love that place. Depending how the saving goes I may have to spoil myself and stay there next Nov!!

Bahaha! I totally do the same thing as Em after vacation!! I live out of a suitcase on my floor for a few weeks while trying to settle back into real life!

You are popular too! I can't wait to hear all about your meet ups in December!

Oh yacht club, I miss you! Rich didn't like walking down the never ending hallways but it was too pretty for me to care. Those beds, the anchors on the furniture, the rope around the mirrors...makes a US Navy granddaughter happy.

I still think you guys are super sweet for getting him a Beatles gift. That section in the UK is so fun.

That France background with the fountain is just one of the loveliest places!

No Admiral Suite, but still a VERY nice room! I love how the headboards look like the steering wheel of a boat.

I take the longest time to unpack from trips. I'm going to use the excuse of "Just getting ready for the next trip!" from now on. SO SOON!

Love your pics form YC, although I think we will be staying BC next trip. They are both beautiful resorts. I love that you and Kat keep running into each other. As for living out of suitcase I normally do. It does take some planning and I'm getting lazy so next trip I think I'm going to unpack. As for home everything get washed so not a problem. Opps except for the stuff I really only use at Disney. Speaking of forgetting to unpack. After last trip I thought I left a cheap necklace behind, it wasn't till a few months later that I needed the suitcase and found the necklace (and a few other things I forgot about) in with my window cling on things.

Geez, that room is gorgeous! And the view is magnificent too. Makes me really want to stay at Yacht or Beach club one day.

I really love unpacking at hotels, especially at Disney! Makes me feel like i'm at home

Oh, those Yacht Club photos are stunning! We normally stay at WL and have tried BC once, but now I'm seriously considering a YC stay.

I'm new to your trip reports (loving this one so far!)...do you frequently stay CL? Do you think the perks are worth the extra $$$?

Congratulations on top thread of the month! I love the fancy banner below your user name!!

Boma breakfast looks great! We ate dinner there when we stayed at AKL but definitely want to try breakfast.

The Mara is really good... although we only actually ate one meal there when we stayed at AKL. The best part of it is ZEBRA DOMES! Which Boma also has at dinner.

Sum of all thrills has been on my must do list FOREVER! I have never actually seen the ride, I have somehow missed it every visit to Epcot.

Nice score on the insta-fast passes for TT! I didn't get to ride it on our last trip since the refurb so I'm not up on the changes.

That's so cool that you keep running into Kathy!

I love your pictures of San Angel Inn! Somehow TS in Mexico has never made our list. If it's anything like the CS we've had, I'm sure it was excellent! The pictures of the food definitely look yummy.

Another things we haven't done... visited the American Adventure. Yes, our Disney to do list is super long.

Wow, Kathy is super popular!

I love the International Gateway! Oh my goodness for a second I thought you got upgraded again at the YC, lol. Did it almost feel like a let down after the last time there?

The deluxe room looks very nice. Something to consider. Now that Gavin is here, the standard hotel room probably just won't do for us since he naps and goes to bed before us and we need more space. That pretty much prices us out of most on site accomodations unfortunately since we'd need a 1 bedroom villa. But I think the deluxe room might work, is there a TV in the sitting area? At least we would be able to do something while Gavin napped and went to bed before us, lol. Anyway sorry for the tangent...

I always lived out of a suitcase every time until our last trip when we stayed in the AoA suite. I actually unpacked us and put our stuff in the drawers and stashed away the suitcases. It was actually really nice and it was fun to pretend that we lived there since it made it feel just a little bit more like home.

Okay, so, so sorry for not getting over here sooner.

I guess I have a few posts to go back and comment on.
First off, I'm totally down with you on the goat cheese thing, as I tell my kids (who love goat cheese by the way) I'd probably like licking the goat better.
Boma, does it get much better?!? I finally got to eat their breakfast there this last trip, but I think we'll be trying the Tusker house buffet next time. Which did you like better?

I'm right there with you on crying when I see The American Adventure, that and the Hall of Presidents. I'm always moved by both, but then again I'm a big sap when it comes to being patriotic.


I've never been to the YC, I think I've seen it from afar when we were walking Pat back to her resort, but beyond that we've not been there. I'll have to see it some time, it looks like a beautiful place to stay.
Your room is enormous! What a nice suite!

All the meets are great, can't wait to see who else you run into.

It's funny to hear about everyone's idiosyncrasies when it comes to unpacking at the resort or unpacking when you get home.
Me, I'm one who lives out of her suitcase while vacationing, but as soon as I get home I have to unpack or it will drive me C R A Z Y!! And I mean as SOON as I get home! Okay, if it's late then I wait until the next morning, but as soon as I'm up I can't take it and I have to unpack.

Wow

Beautiful room who needs an upgrade with that room. Wish we could stay in a room like that when we go. But Mods are in our price range no deluxe and for sure no club lv.......alas we will get squished into a much smaller room and have a EVC in there to boot. lol

That is one gorgeous room! We have never been able to get in to the Yacht or Beach Club using our DVC points but man do I ever want to!

And I also love to unpack while at Disney. Can't stand living out of a suitcase. Makes it seem like I'm really not staying there for very long. At least if I put my clothes away I'm staying for a while!

What a great picture of you girls at the fountain in France. Such a pretty backdrop! It's definitely one of the most photogenic pavilions in WS.

Well, it's no Admiral Suite, but that is still a gorgeous and spacious room!! I am totally with you, I can't stand living out of a suitcase. It drives me nuts when I am forced to do it for a night! Teenagers are a special breed though, so it's no wonder Em had no problem with it.

Hi Brenda!

I love the pictures of Animal Kingdom Lodge on your last day there! That staircase is so beautiful and how awesome to wake up to a giraffe outside your window!

Sum of All Thrills was on our to do list, but we missed it again! It was fun seeing your pictures and I'm glad you enjoyed it!!

I'm sorry to read you didn't like the new Test Track concept! I've talked to many family friends that didn't like it either!! That's so disappointing, because it was such a favorite here prior to the change! We didn't get to ride that this trip either because of storms, so I have no opinion to weigh in one way or the other, but my optimism about the changes has definitely decreased!

Your tour around world showcase looks like it was very nice! And a good lunch, Dismeets, and some very lovely Photopass pictures to boot! Sounds like a fine afternoon!

Wow! Your YC room is gorgeous!!! I love the beds and the sink area is stunning! The view is pretty great as well! Love it all!! That resort has never been on my radar as much as some others, but it is definitely beautiful!!

Really enjoyed these updates!

Wow what a beautiful room!!! Looking forward to some pictures from the balcony.

I love how you keep running into Kathy. So great that you are having so many dismeets. Of course it seems like you will be having twice as many in your upcoming trip.

I unpack everything and do my best to organize while in the room. 4 people in a standard size room for 8 days and it starts to get crazy. Having opened suitcases hanging around would just be tripping hazards waiting to happen. However when I get home it takes forever for me to get everything unpacked, I just do it little by little.
