    Oh how I love the Lion King on Broadway CD! We have a Disney playlist on our ipod of course, Blake keeps it in his study section too. Especially love Shadowland and He Lives in You! And the Epcot Reflections of Earth song! Oooh! :goodvibes

    Yay, staying at AKL sounds amazing, and I love that you can rent points for cheaper than a value! :thumbsup2 I might just have to try that for our next trip!

    Address PM'd. :thumbsup2 Thanks!

    I really think I need to go with the animal print PJs, I think they are a must have.

    Because you are the best!!

    I can't wait for zebra domes!! I want to try those VERY badly. I am so excited to explore AKL. It's going to be so much fun.

    Anytime you want help renting points, you just let me know. Especially if it means an upgrade in where you stay.

    You need to come visit Mass and me of course!! I will give you a grand tour. :thumbsup2

    :lmao:

    That is a seriously cool animal moment, it makes you wonder what they do when the guests aren't watching. :rotfl2:

    I really want to spend some time to enjoy AKL, I think it will be nice too. I mean, we've been to Disney and we know we are going to go back so we don't have to go park commando or anything. I want to enjoy the resort for sure.

    I need to dig out my Disney CDs in my car. I put them all away because I knew I didn't have a trip planned and it's too hard to listen to them. But now I have a trip so I can listen again!!

    I highly recommend renting points, there is even a store that rents points out now, I think there is a link on the DVC section of the DIS.

    Happy 4th of July!!!

    [​IMG]

    I hope everyone had a fabulous 4th of July weekend. We had a great one, low key and relaxing but sometimes that is just what you need.

    We also spent our holiday weekend talking about our Disney trip. Big surprise, right? :laughing:

    We weighed out the costs and have decided to add a night at Pop Century before our AKV reservation.

    Pop will cost us $128 with tax for the night. If you subtract our $51 savings from our AKV reservation than it's costing us $77 for that extra night. I'm happy with that. $77 plus food costs for an extra night of Disney is practically a bargain.

    We have been furiously doing math trying to decide if we want to pay out of pocket for meals or if we are going to add the dining plan to our AKV reservation. I keep going back and forth, once we make a decision I will be sure to let you know what we decided.

    It's time for a Counting Our Nuts PTR Game!

    I am for sure decided on three places that we are going to eat on this trip, your job is to guess which three dining establishments have made our top three list. I think my regular readers will be VERY surprised and I will give this one hint, only one of the places we have eaten at before.

    Go forth with your guessing! If one person guesses all three right, I will send them a prize. :yay:

    Ooo, I'm terrible at these games.

    I say Brown Derby...hmm, let me think out of the box...

    Dang it, all I can think of is places you've already eaten! Can't you throw a girl a hint? At least narrow it down to a park? Do you know how many restuarants there are in the World? ;)

    YAY for adding the night but :eek: for the switch...I have pains thinking about our switch from POP 1 night to BLT last Nov....just 2 adults should go way better...we can "chat" more on that...but don't want to freak you out...luggage...luggage....oh dear :sad2: my experience just had to be one of those flukes right?

    here are links to our story (you'll have to read thru our arrival and some descripts of BLT and some drama too, but you'll get the gist...):

    Part one (arriving POP and the wrong luggage decision by us?):
    http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=39138288&postcount=12

    Part two (leaving POP and going to BLT):
    http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=39159296&postcount=32

    Part three (where is our luggage?):
    http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=39171406&postcount=41


    now for the TS choices...I seriously have no clue where and not you have eaten...so I will just guess blindly here...

    Narcoossee's (cause we are eating there in Oct), Boma (cause why wouldn't you do a TS at your resort) and Raglan Road (because I'm Irish :rotfl:)

    YAY for an extra night!! Take the time (if you already haven't) and physically pick out what entree you are looking at for counter and table services, just so you can do even closer fuzzy disney math. That was always our decision if we were doing the dining plan or not.
    Ok..top 3 choices..I am going with Brown Derby for sure, then...California Grill and Jiko

    Happy 4th to you, too! :teeth:

    Ummm... my guesses are Le Cellier, Boma and California Grill. I haven't read your TRs before or know what you like, but it seemed they would be pretty top notch, if only three.
