    Koh1977 - The place is in St. Charles. I hear it's been updated since I was there, but I loved the non-updated version.

    My family is from Joliet - nearly all of them. Some elderly aunts still live in Chicago. I'm usually out there once a year to see my cousins. We are very long term NJ transplants!

    Sweet!! Maybe we'll run into each other.

    The DH and I were talking about our trip when he called as he was driving to his next appt. He had me make an ADR for Ragland Road at 4:15 PM on the day we check into the AKL. He is thinking that instead of trying to get an early ADR, we could just hang out at the resort and swim for a couple of hours. Before I go ask on the AK thread, do y'all know if there is a place we could change into our swim suits at the pool, if our room isn't ready? Also, how long do we need to allow for travel to DtD, whether it be by Disney bus or by our minivan? His plan is to get to the AKL, check in, swim for a couple of hours, eat at Ragland Road, and then go to the MK for PM EMH.

    Thanks a million for the reviews of BWV (on my phone or I would multi-quote!) I'm wondering if the standard view studios will be relatively quiet ... at least compared to the Pool/Water view villas.

    On the Magical Depress right now. Went over to DHS after Miss M did her final bead activity this morning, one last ride of Star Tours, gifted some Fastpasses onto some really appreciative girls and their momma, then took the boat over to the Swan. (Did a sneak peek walk-through of the clown pool, wanted to remind myself of what the pool looked like.) Got a Snakebite to sip whilst watching the band play over in the UK pavilion, took the kiddo on Nemo then headed back to the resort for some last minute giraffe viewing. I did try the Zebra Domes! Yummmm-o.

    The hubster keeps turning around giving me a pouty look! :love: Haha, I think the man is hooked. :thumbsup2

    P.S. we'll be lucky to make it home this evening. Severe weather warnings back home with "quarter sized hail and tornado like winds" ... :eek:

    Hello :wave2: :grouphug:

    We had our trip all paid for. Until the DH decided that after looking at my "must do" list for the MK that we needed more time in that park and added a day. I just made a payment and now we're down to only owing $177.


    When I woke up from my nap this morning, I was behind 3 (or maybe 4 pages) on the old thread and the making of the new one.


    I swear men complain about how often and quickly, women change their minds, but I swear the DH is just as bad sometimes. When I first talked to him about it today the plan was to wake up on Sunday, September 8, and check into the AKL no later than 10 AM. Then swim for a few hours before getting dressed for our 4:15 ADR at Ragland Road. Then we would head to the MK for PM EMH. Well we had to get off the phone for him to do an appt and by the time he got done, he had changed his mind. He now doesn't want to swim. He wanted to head straight to the MK after checking in, and then get to our 4:15 ADR at Ragland Road, before going back to the MK for PM EMH. I just thought that was silly. It makes more sense to me to move the Ragland Road ADR earlier and then spend the rest of the afternoon/evening in the MK. I needed to leave for school, so we didn't get to talk about it, but we will when I get home tonight.
