    DD#2 is actually turning 7 on the 29th so its a birthday trip. She loves the BWV's! She and DD#1, who will be 8, love the performers on the BW. She got to pick resort and I love saving points on the stan view at 11 months out so everyone is happy. I know what you mean about staying at a more quiet resort, we have learned to love OKW. Stayed there the last 2 trips and loved the removed location!

    I do like the quieter resorts, but staying at BWV and being in the middle of everything was just awesome. We stay there again in January for my birthday. Can't wait to go back !!!

    So I've been reading during my lunch and I got through page 8...:goodvibes

    Lot's of comments in no particular order...

    I'm really sorry about your ankle...:worried: that sounds really uncomfortable and makes it hard to get around... My brother hurt his ankle a couple of months ago...(he was being ridiculous testing a trampoline at a party place for my nephew and he came down really awkwardly on it...) I'm hoping your more mended at this point...

    I was chuckling a bit about Waffle House...DD and I had done a Southern College Road trip through VA, NC & GA... and we noticed more Waffle Houses but also just more waffles in general... We like waffles... we just haven't seen them as much in PA... we wound up having them 3 out of 4 days.... We were wondering if there was some Southern connection...

    I'm sure that DH likes Disney as much as you... but you make a good cover for him... :goodvibes

    Your children seem very sweet... my DS has the Goofy hat your DD has... but then again he has 3 Goofy hats... obviously his favorite Character...

    I've recently seen SSR in several trip reports... It really looks nice... I'd like to stay there sometime... & its really nice to have that ferrry to DTD...

    It looks like your Family made some nice purchases... I happen to have a soft spot for Vanellope (sp?) ... I thought she was a great girl role model....

    Have never had bad food at WPE... need to go this summer...

    Disney Quest looks like a lot of fun...

    Soarin is an awesome attraction... :goodvibes Love Fast Passes....::yes::

    (Think I'm going to be spending a lot more time in Epcot-Future World...in the future... just so much stuff DS wants to do there... He's a definite Science Guy dude...

    Hurray for Dismeets...:cool1:

    Finally finished reading. With the holidays and people being sick around here I have fallen behind. Glad you had a good trip. I understand the ankle thing. I have to go for an MRI on mine now. I seem to have tendon damage and may be facing surgery myself. How did you like your scooter company? Now that they have preferred companies I may be looking to change who I use. Walker is a great company but not preferred. :(

    Looking forward to the next trip.

    I like Apple Scooter. The first time we used them, we had a bad battery. But they brought one to us in Downtown Disney and it took about 15 minutes. After that, we never had a problem with them again. I would recommend them.

    I really hope you don't have to have surgery on your ankle. It is the most painful thing I have gone through and the recovery takes FOREVER. It has been almost four months since my surgery and I am at maybe 50%-60% of use. I can walk and get around some, but I can't go far. I still experience a great deal of pain and swelling and have to rely on 1-2 painkillers a day and I have to ice 2-3 times a day. I also have 6 more weeks of physical therapy. The whole thing is exhausting. Recovery is VERY slow. So I have my fingers crossed for you that it is something that will heal on its own or that you just need a scope and not the tendon repair. Good luck !!!

    Ok... just read through page 14...am enjoying your TR very much BTW...


    Not to sound like I just fell off the turnip truck and in my defense I have a horrible head cold... but just what is photo bombing?

    Garden Grill looks like fun...love that it turns and the food looks good too...:thumbsup2

    Osbourne lights are just heavenly... loved your photos... Don't you think that it's just hard to explain unless you're there?:cloud9:

    DHS Segway tour sounds like so much fun...doesn't he know inquiring Dis minds want to see photos...:lmao:

    Animal Kingdom is such a photogenic park... love your photos of the gorillas/trail...

    Think that Characters look so cute in their Christmas & Safari outfits...It was a great idea having Pluto sign DD's hat...

    So sorry about your bad experience in Grand Californian Cafe... it's such a pretty restaurant in a gorgeous resort... the food should match...::yes::

    So How big is the Basin in the GF? I love Basin and it's nice to know there's one there...

    I love that DS rode RnRC 3 times in a row...I rode it once for the first time last month and I was feeling proud of myself...:lmao:

    I NEED a carrotcake cookie... carrot cake, cream cheese frosting...all good...:thumbsup2

    I just finished and I realized you're going back this month? Lucky you...:cool1:

    I'm glad you enjoyed your meal at Le Cellier- I think I may be the only Diser who hasn't been there for a whole variety of scheduling conflicts, etc... two bad it is going up to 2 credits for Lunch or I would have tried for a lunch for our July trip... Your lunch looked lovely...

    So glad you made the opening show at MK... doesn't it just make you smile?


    I think the new Fantasyland is awesome and I can even imagine when they finish the 7 Dwarves Roller Coaster...:goodvibes The queuing for the LM ride is lovely and it looks like you got a great Ariel...

    Gaston looks like a totally hoot... We need to seek him out in the summer...

    Colombia Harbor House is one of my faves for CS in MK... it somehow feels a little more out of the way than some of the other CS plus it has some different options...

    Your trip was fabulous and I can't wait to hear about this new birthday trip...:goodvibes
