    On this day we will find ourselves in Animal Kingdom but not right away. I think this day we will go play some mini golf. Now I have to decide if we will do the course by the Dolphin (Fantasia Gardens) or play the summer course at the other.

    Once we finish we then head to Animal Kingdom. Not too many goals here. Safari, Finding Nemo and maybe Everest for myself.

    Dinner this evening will be at Cape May at Beach Club. I ate here 12 years ago and look forward to going back.

    That would be the end of Day 7.

    Up next,

    We have a new guest.

    That's a possibility as far as the ADR. I haven't decided what I want to do yet and may be scooterless. Don't want to pay for a whole day. I had thought of eating around the world but it's a saturday and the natives will arrive. My flight home is at 7:05 so I'm assuming ME will be around 3:45. Now to remember to go to the pick-up spot not the drop off spot like last year.

    I'm pretty sure Kristel will be leaving early as she has to drive home.

    Realized I haven't posted in awhile. I love 50's Primetime! One of our favorites.

    The mini-golf sounds fun. My DS and I did both of the ones by BB and only there by the Swan. Never did do the one that looks like a real golf course.

    I was wondering if I will spot you during your trip, think we were going to be at WDW at the same time. We are going to MNSSHP on the 11th, Epcot on the 12th and possibly DTD that night? Will you be around any of those locations those days?

    I changed it to 11:10 so if you can make it that would be great and if not no problem.
    last time in April my ME was 2 1/2 hours before the flight. I was very surprised.
    :rotfl2:
    I am sure she will be.

    Thanks. I can't wait to report how it all went.
    I hope it will be. Sad you and Nova won;t be there but hopefully next year.

    We have done the Fantasia and Winter. Not the real looking one.
    We r skipping the party this year but I think earlier we will be there. Every thing can change. Friday the 12th is the night fo our dinner with friends. I am thinking that night might end up at the lounge on top of BLT

    Thanks.
    Next to Studio Catering across from the backlot tour. There is a drink place there.

    Thanks.

    Yep we switched to CBR. I am so excited vinny is eh. He is happy to be going away. he likes Disney and is happy it is 13 days this time.

    Hi Scott,
    You must be getting so excited, I am for you. Gosh I have not eaten at Cape May in way too many years. Are you going to be doing any live type updates, I know that can be a total pain just thought I'd ask. And you get to listen and see Stacy. I am jealosu, I just have no clue when we will go back. I have a ton of points for the swan/dolphin. I might go in December and then April or just April. I have no Adrs if I do go .

    Hello,
    I am. :lmao:
    I will be posting on twitter and facebook and possibly stream one of the firework shows on Ustream. maybe.
    I have Stacy here. LOL I recorded her last time.
    I would like to do Swan one day. We were going to do December but put it off. Possibly next April again.

    16 days and I am bursting.
    Well we will go into that soon. :)

    I've stayed at Swan & liked it. Love the location! Room was very nice, comfortable beds!! The only part I didn't like is that you can't use ME. When you get used to not thinking about transportation to/from MCO, you get spoiled! :rotfl2:

    Looks like a great plan! If we get there early enough on the 11th, I will look for you at MK and I'll keep an eye out on the 12th at Epcot.
