    I am hoping for another split stay for next year and the idea is something along the line of flying to Houston, cruise on the Wonder on an itinerary that stops in Jamaica, 6 nights at Wilderness Lodge, 3 nights on the Dream and 4 nights at Animal Kingdom Lodge. If this comes off, then breakfast at Boma is a must.

    I had to look up what a sphinx is (thinking of that egyptian statue, which i'm sure is not what you're talking about :rotfl:). Is that a very large moth??

    You literally took a picutre of every single offering and I love it!!! :cool1: It should definitely help someone out. I wish we could go there, but don't think mom will like it.

    You're leaving in 3 days! :banana:

    I'm going to be posting our final schedule today, so maybe we could try to find a time in which we'll be at the same park or somewhere so we could meet up for a few minutes?!

    Absolutely, I'm really looking forward to it. Will PM you my number.


    Yep, that's the one, like a moth but more of a creature. They love the nectar on butterfly bushes. They remind me of hummingbirds. I would be so scared if giants were throwing pens at me, who knows if animals like that have thoughts but I had to rescue it.

    I figured I couldn't just take pictures of what I liked so just took everything. I made sure I wasn't holding up the line so everyone had started eating without me :)

    Bummer you couldn't get your ride photo. I hope you were able to the next day.

    Wow to the lack of crowds. I know I keep saying that, but just WOW! I have got to take a September trip. I just have to. You might be in shock this month. You will actually have to SEE people. :lmao:

    Thanks for taking all those Boma pictures. I can recognize what I had for breakfast in June. I did love the french toast bread pudding and those scones. Yum. I just ate dinner and those pics are making me want breakfast. :rolleyes1

    If I don't get back here before you leave, have an awesome time! I know you will and I hope you like OKW.

    I think the counter shows she left yesterday... But who knows, maybe she is still lurking around?

    I'm lurking :) I left yesterday and the day was so crazy I didn't think about saying anything. Life is good. Just got back from lounging by the pool for a few hours. Saw the new Fantasyland this morning and it was beautiful. The Ariel ride was gorgeous but way too short. Be Our Guest was letting people come inside to look around and it looks amazing. Had some pastries at Gastons which were delicious.

    Mary Ellen you'll be proud of me I was there within 20 minutes of park opening. I'll admit it really makes a difference.

    I have no idea how I missed this, so sorry. Thanks so much! It's a gorgeous resort. We're still getting the hang of the bus route, probably will finally know what it on departure day... And I did do my research I just somehow forgot to write it down.

    I actually thought that exact thing, 'why are there so many people here?' :laughing: the longest wait has been 20 minutes so really not bad. I got really spoiled by September though. Yes, definitely on the top of my list of return months. But it was very very hot and if I'm remembering correctly you can only take so much of that.

    I was just confused with the picture since the CM gave me wrong info. I'm always learning new things about Disney. I ended up loving our RnRC picture better so I didn't go back the next day. Everything worked out perfectly.

    I can't believe you are back already. What did you make of our home resort?

    Got back home a few hours ago. Laundry is started and the suitcase is stowed until the next trip. It was a six day trip which was a nice length but I hated leaving. OKW was just gorgeous, I will definitely return.

    I need to get caught up on everybody's TRs. If I do anything for this trip I'm thinking just posting pictures and not a full TR. I need to get on the ball with this one.

    I hope everyone is doing well :)

    I am glad that you had a good time. Which area of OKW did you stay in?

    They gave us Millers Road. I decided not to request anything and just let the chips fall where they may. Building 22, which was the last area away from the buses. About a 10 minute walk to the HH. Absolutely loved all the foliage and tropical feel. It was such a peaceful place.
