    Oh no! Jeeshh...I thought I would be alone at least on the lack of photos. Sorry you had to deal with that too. My memory is great, but it would be nice to have a few photos to look back on in years to come.:rolleyes:

    The kids and I have been rehashing the trip, and taking notes on everything that didn't happen or got missed on the trip. I will have to include this list at the end of my report. Lack of family photos, including Photopass photos (especially after pre-purchasing the CD) is right up there.

    And yes, you are right. On my next trip, I will be very selective on who gets to come.:laughing:

    I'm so glad that Katie was feeling much better the next morning. I'm sure that was such a relief for both of you. I loved your room at the Contemporary. It looked absolutely wonderful. I'm glad that your DH at least liked the room.

    As for the photopass cd, I always get it too but by the end of our stay my DD is usually not smiling. According to her, I take too many pictures with my camera and stop every photopass photographer and she's tired of being in pictures. On our last trip, my last photopass pic is of my mom and I at night in front of the ball at Epcot. I love the picture and really wish that she had been in the pic too.

    See, you really are not alone in all this. Please keep posting, I'm enjoying your report in spite of all the disappointments.

    Well, at least you've got his blessing to continue on your solo/kid only trips! I'll be right there with ya! :goodvibes


    So sorry your night in the Contemporary didn't turn out the way you had hoped. I'm so glad it was nothing serioud with Katie though, and that she was fine the next morning. Your photos are making me really want to stay there again.

    Love that you unpacked and put stuff in the drawers for just one night, totally something I would do (and get made fun of for doing :rotfl:).

    Really enjoying your report!

    Sorry about Katie-- I always got headaches on our family vacations, but I'm glad she was okay! I'm sure traveling just wore her out and she needed a good sleep.
    Sorry you weren't able to fully enjoy Wishes!! That view is just amazing!

    I'm sorry to hear that Katie was't feeling well, but glad that she felt completely recovered by morning! I love the room! We've never stayed at the Contemporary before, but after your pictures, I have to rethink our choices for our next trip (whenever that may be). I'm glad that your DH at least was excited about the room! Watching Wishes from the balcony would be such a nice perk towards the end of the trip when you're more tired and the long days get to be a bit much.

    Your room looks gorgeous! I'm glad hubby was excited about it! I can totally relate to the sick kid thing (we traveled to Disney in 2006 with 12 of us total, and each one of us got sick at one point or another)! So glad she was feeling better the next day!

    Hoping your arrival at the Beach Club goes smoothly. So where did you have ME put your bags - CR or BCV? Or did hubby just take them with him from baggage claim in the car? :confused3

    *hops on board to enjoy the report*

    I'm so glad Katie was recovered by morning. I had chronic migraines starting at 7 or 8... and it was always stressful on family trips if one happened. :( Wishes from Contemporary sound wonderful!

    I may call and see how much it would be to upgrade from WL to Contemporary for our Sept stay now... :p

    I am subbing.popcorn:: I have a different twist on a resister. I suprised my DH with a week long trip to Disney for our 1st annivesary and had been going multiple times a year and every anniversary for 9 years including 3 cruises on DCL. His response everytime I would ask when we could go again was "plan it". We live in NW Florida so it is a little easier for us to go than to have to fly. Well he is cruised out ( it's the same thing everytime:confused3) and as far as Disney he is ready to start seeing "other" places. The past 2 anniversaries I told him to pick a place well last year we didn't do anything and this past anniversary I booked the campgrounds at the last min. ( we have a motorhome and love FW) but I told him I wasn't going to make him go to the parks. The whole time he kept asking if I wanted to go to the park and I told him no I wasn't going to force him. I think he wanted to go though:rotfl2: We saw a shuttle launch that was amazing:cloud9: and toured the KSC so he got to do something different.
    Point is they can go from loving Disney to the opposit. I believe he loves Disney he just likes to "complain" until we get there, the night before he is like a little kid and enjoys the trip.

    On the good side - LOVE your room and your amazing view! :cloud9:

    One the bad side - so sorry Katie got sick! Justin is a bit of a drama queen when he doesn't feel well too, so I can never tell if he is really sick and hurting or if he's just being a baby. :confused3

    I love the room and view!!! You have me rethinking about where to stay for our next trip. We are poly addicts but this looks like it might be a nice change.

    So glad your daughter woke up feeling fine. It is so hard to figure out when they are really sick. Maybe this is a sign that things are improving. Plans never seem to work out there always is something that gets in the way.

    Once again you took it in stride! Good for you. Hope things got better the next day. Can't wait to hear all about the BC.
