I love campgrounds. I like to hike around campgrounds. I do not like to camp. I do not like sleeping on the ground, using outdoor toilets, cooking over a campfire and trying to clean dishes/me during camping. I like to camp in a cabin with running water, doors that lock and an attached toilet that flushes. I like to camp at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, in a one bedroom villa please.


Something was just not right with Timmy.

He was sick. Sore throat, body aches, just not "feeling" very Timmy-ish.

Poor Timmy, I hope he felt better quickly.

The stairs I thought were so beautiful- that I was sadly now afraid to go all the way up- all because of coming down.

Sometimes, when coming down stairs, I experience vertigo so I am afraid I also would have chickened out of climbing the stairs. Going up is one thing, coming down another.

Glad you are back on this TR. You are making me wish we were headed out west this summer instead of heading south.

It was totally worth it- not often you get to have a fabulous meal in such a historic place.

In Williamsburg we stayed in the Houses & Taverns. You stay in one of the old houses on a back street or the Main Street. It's wonderful, but not as posh as the Williamsburg Lodge. One has to consider the fact these are the actual 200 or more years old buildings, so may not have all the amenities. The atmosphere is just incredible, especially if one loves history.
It sounds very interesting! I just booked a family at Kings Mill for their summer vacation- it looks really nice!

I can't for the life of me remember what we ate there but I do remember it being a fabulous meal and the atmosphere in that dining room can't be topped!
Beautiful photos by the way and I love that you are including some great links to further info - above and beyond the DIS Trip Reporting duty but very welcome !!
Thanks for the compliment! Funny, looking at that pic, Timmy and Tyler both already look sooooo much older! I am so glad we chose to have dinner here- it was an extremely memorable evening.

Glad you like the links!

Yes, I do love turndown service! It feels like you are being tucked in at night- and makes the bed look even MORE inviting after a long day.

Sarah has always eaten adult foods so when eating out we needed to either pay for an adult meal or find decent buffets where she could choose the duck, squid, etc. (No mac and cheese/grill cheese/kid food for her taste buds.) Now we justify eating at or visiting special, expensive places by saying, we are creating memories. And memories are worth paying the price. Sometimes.

Ok- so I totally missed your post and your ticker is long gone, but I know you had fun in WDW at AKV, right?

So funny about Sarah and her foodie tastes- have I told you I am an only child, too? Cant't remember.....anyway, I was just like Sarah, ate all kinds of adult foods when I was a kid. Absolutely despised spaghettios and chef boyardee, would not touch it or PB&J. Completely humiliated my parents when, at the age of 7, I ordered the Maine lobster for dinner when my Great Aunt & Uncle were treating ( they laughed it off- they fortunately could afford it and thought it was awesome I could crack my own lobster at 7- but I had been doing that since I was 5). So...yea- good for Sarah! I know where she's coming from!

That's a gorgeous dining room too.
The hardware is for if you feel like mountain climbing after one or two of those drinks have convinced you to mountaineer up- lol- maybe I should have brought it with me to the steps-

I would have been all over that Prime Rib, Swordfish (sans olive tapenade), the apps looked GREAT! Sign me up. We need to make our reservation for next May!
Are you going? Wait- next May or this May?

WOW! Those prices. Did you come to NYC for dinner? LOL
Nice gift. Looks like it was wonderful meal.
Hmm, I sense trouble coming up.
Great update and pics.
Hey there neighbor!

Yea, prices were high- you gotta figure with all that food being hauled in from who knows where, plus the fact of being the only really nice place for a hundred miles, they can kinda do what they want!

Where are you going in a couple weeks?
Yes well, the shower story is not over yet-

I went to WDW AEP (agent Education Program for Travel agents) but I am sure you already knew that!

I'm glad to see you're back on this TR! Very beautiful pictures from the hike. But for the amount you're payong a night that shower handle should have been fixed!

Well now a May trip is out of the question. We booked a B2B out of San Diego the 15-20 next May, and we have WDW and the Dream in mid April so maybe early June before the schools get out.

We leave in 10 days for our SW road trip. This will be an adventure!
