YAY!!! You've started your trip report!! Of course the Renfroes are onboard for the duration.
By the way, the link you have posted in you siggie doesn't work. You may want to check it out.
was bored so I took a pic of our plane sitting out on the cold dark runway................
Pretty soon, our magical bus arrived...............
Ready to watch the video!
Entering my happy place:
We were pulling into SSR by 12:30pm............
Now, I don't know if it's fair to compare, but Roaring Forks offers similiar items. Here's what they looked like:
chicken nuggets w/fries (sorry, half-eaten):
turkey and brie on foccaccia bread w/pasta salad side:
Thanks for joining!
Oh please do! And post the link here when you start. What are your dates?
Oh my gosh - Lauren will be so excited! In case you haven't noticed, she digs you - and thinks Ally is adorable. We must make sure to plan to spend longer than a lunch together!
Hi Alan - thanks for finding me. And thanks for the heads-up about my link. I think I've fixed it now!
Hi, I just finished reading your last report and it was amazing I love your daughter--she's such a cutie!!(She reminds me of herself when I was her age--i'm only 16--so not too far off.) I went in June of 2008 also with my grandparents and my brother and we stayed at Saratoga Springs. I get what you mean with the whole waiting for a room thing--we checked in at 3:15 and our room wasn't ready until 5--which totally ruined our plans for heading to hollywood studios for dinner. Anyways--we stayed at the carousel...when you're on the bus and you stop at the carousel, you would look directly to your left and you'll see our building--we were on the top floor. Anyways--I know what you mean about Disney withdrawl--it's been 8 months and i'm dying out here in cold weathered michigan...Ahhhh...I cannot wait 5 more months to go again....this time we're staying at AKL....well, hope you had fun on your trip and btw I subscribed--can't wait to hear more...Thanks, Deva (Dayva)
Great decision on the nap Mom, she looked like she really needed it. Hope your stay at SSR gets better.
I read your last TR after it was completely done and I really enjoyed it. I'm so glad I found this one at the beginning! I hope your DD got to feeling better!
i'm sorry you didn't like SSR. i LOVE it. i love how it's big and all spread out and you can just take a walk and take it all in. but of course we didn't have the problems with check-in that you had - we spent our first day at AK and didn't leave the park until around 4:00 so we didn't have to wait for our room to be ready. at least you got a DTD view. i don't think the trees block your view at all! here was our view:
we had trees too but i still loved the view, especially at night.
we never ate at artist's palette so i can't comment on that from personal experience. if we were hungry and at the resort we'd just walk over to wolfgang puck express - i love that place!!!
i guess it's good that we all don't like the same resorts because it would be pretty hard to get a reservation at one if we did!
Yayyy you started!
I'm so sorry your trip got off to a bad start but I'm sure you guys don't let it hold you down for long! Poor Lauren feeling sick at Disney...I think the only time I'd rather be at home than at Disney is if I were sick, poor girl. I hope she started to feel better by the end of the week. Your view doesn't look so bad, I'm sure it was really pretty at night! Can't wait to read more
p.s. can I tell you how jealous I am that you're going back in 9 months?!
