I am going to squeeze in one more update before I have to go to Project Graduation- because our villa was ready, and WOW was I excited to see what our view was! Up we went, and O.M.G.- my request was honored and we had an AMAZING WOC view!!!! But first, the tour...



















It was so gorgeous in here, but really?? Are you kidding me with this view??



I was seriously running around like a TOTAL nut job- MUCH more than usual. I mean, how often am I going to get here? Maybe a handful of times if I am lucky in life? So- to score THIS- was HUGE! SOOOO HAPPY!!!!!







Gorgeous, beautiful detailing throughout, including the carpet-





Cont'd next post....

Poor Timmy; hope he felt better quickly.

The savings seats thing is . I'm sure these are the same people who have their crap on an empty DCL deck chair for 6 hours and then get pissed when it gets moved. Some people are clueless.

Yay for Disneyland!!
This makes me think of the gym. One lady came by herself, got on a treadmill two down from me, then hung her towel and keys on the one next to me. Someone tried to use it, and she said, "my husband is still using this one, he'll be right back." He showed up about 10 minutes later. Another lady was doing the circuit on the weight machines, and she put her bag on the machine ahead of her so no one would use it before she needed it.

I went a little shutter crazy too. But NO ONE in my family could say anything about it THIS time- haha!





























NICE!!!!







Very nice-













Just beautiful, every inch of it, even the vaccuum closet, lol!!

We went back to the pool for a little bit- must have eaten something but I can't recall what, so maybe we just had room snacks, then back up to the room to shower and change. Tonight, the boys would be having a boys night at an Angels game, and I would be having a night with some of my favorite California DISgirls...it was going to be an AMAZING evening!!!!!! Next time!

Now you're making me homesick! I loved VGC! I think they really outdid themselves! We stayed in the hotel before they build he villas. I think the villas are even more beautiful! Love the pool! Your view is amazing!!! You really had the going!

DLR is the mother ship for sure. "It all started with a Mouse" I always want to add , "right on this spot." We always go to an Angels game when we are in town - love the fireworks with the home runs! Can't wait to see your meet up with our Drea!!! I'm sure you two had some good times!

Ellen, I am all caught up!

You have been an updating machine, girl! There is FAR too much to comment on, but I just love all the photos you take, especially all the detail.
The VGC look awesome and your view is outstanding! Lucky girl, but then ..... by all the "advertising" you do with your TRs you deserve it.

Doesn't that just tick you off?! People are clueless.

WOW! Is that room gorgeous or what! I can definitely see why you were so excited. Someday we hope to get out to Disneyland. I have never been to California yet.

Hopefully Timmy will be feeling better for this next portion of the trip. It really does suck when you don't feel well during vacation.

And that Hampton looked gorgeous! We also try to stay with Hilton for the points. Love them free rooms!
