    Live trip report from our CR/Poly stay 8/3-8/11!!

    WHO?
    iloveeeyore, age 45
    MainStreetFireman, DH, age 48
    Inspire&Imagine, DD, age 18
    DS, age 15 (he loves Disney, too, he just hasn't joined TheDIS yet.

    WE LEAVE TOMORROW MORNING, AND THE TAXI IS PICKING US UP IN LESS THAN 10 HOURS!!! :cool1::cool1::cool1:

    I will basically update you about all kinds of things we do...our itinerary, the crowds, wait times, transportation times, weather, the basics about our dining experiences on the DxDP (no great details, that's for my dining report when we return), and any other little things worth mentioning. We have some exciting events planned, including parasailing and the Wild Africa Trek. There will also be lots of PICTURES included!

    Tonight we have been caught in a bit of a frenzy in our home. We have been very behind in our packing (and of course we have to watch some Olympics), but we are starting to catch up and feeling a bit more calm now. I just finished online check-in for our flight tomorrow. I also did online check-in for our two resort reservations, the Contemporary Resort (TPV) tomorrow night and our package at the Poly Saturday-Saturday.

    We are thrilled to have you along! Please feel free to ask any questions if there's anything specific you'd like to know about WDW LIVE!

    Can't wait to read your live report! Have a safe trip, and I really hope you enjoy the parasailing - I went parasailing over Bay Lake once, and it was so cool - it feels like you're flying. :cloud9:

    So the bags are all packed, except for our overnight one that is the only one we intend to use tonight at the CR. We will put our last minute items in there when we're done with them this morning. Hula Eeyore is all ready to go!!!
