I'm still recovering from our trip but figured I'd try and put these things down before I forgot them. Sunday, March 26th Our ride to the airport arrived about 15 minutes early, so we rushed to finish getting ready, loaded up the truck and headed to the airport. No lines at all at 6:30AM on a Sunday... got to the gate and boarded a 1/2 full Southwest flight direct to MCO. Nice flight, arrived about 13 minutes early, made our way down to DME and was on the bus within about 30 minutes. We landed just before 10am and in the lobby of the BWV by 11:30AM. (BTW, LOVE the BWV). It was a nice clear, sunny day, but a little windy/chilly (probably upper 60's to low 70's). Well, I went to check-in and crossed my fingers that the room might be ready... it wasn't though. So, we checked our carry-on bags with bell services and headed over to Epcot to pickup our APs and my temporary DDE card. We went thru the International Gateway and stopped to get some fish & chips. Then headed up to the front of Epcot to get the DDE. After that we decided to checkout Test Track, Mission Space, and Soarin to see the waittimes. For whatever reason, none of them were doing fastpasses so we just walked around a little. We stopped by club cool and tried the different drinks (including the beverly)... it wasn't "that" bad, but I had no desire to have a 2nd sip. Our favorite was the ginger ale and the watermelon (whatever their names where). We then went to ride the Figment ride (had never been on that one before). That attriction is now on our "Disney needs to renovate/replace list". Ok, after that we decided to go see if any characters were out and about. We pull out the Sony Cybershot camera only to find that it is messed up. All of the pictures appear blurry on the LCD. I adjust all of the settings, reset the camera, and nothing helps. Needless to say we were NOT happy. I called to check on the room and it still wasn't ready, but we decided to head back to the boardwalk anyway. We went in the lobby around 2pm and just sat down on the sofas and waited. Meanwhile I continued messing with the camera, but no luck in fixing it. We were entertained by a mime who came into the lobby area - she was great. DP was asleep on the sofa so she got me to getup and she layed down right next to him. He eventually turned his head and was like... "woah... umm.. hi?". (Guess ya had to be there). She eventually got us to go outside and sit on the deck overlooking the boardwalk. It was a rather pleasant afternoon so a very good idea. Let's see if I can speed this up a little... our room was finally ready around 3:45PM and we went up to get settled in (studio room 4071). It was just a few doors down from the elevators. The room was really nice, only a few minor things that I noticed (but I didn't call to complain). The sofa looked dirty and the pullout bed was extremely difficult to get open. Oh, one major complaint... the TV in the room was micro-sized!!! I had expected the TV's to be at least 25" or larger... this was more like 19". Our luggaged arrived shortly thereafter so we unpacked and then headed over to MK so we could catch a bus to the WL for dinner at WCC. We got to the WL about 45 minutes early and we were going to explore a little before dinner. However, due to the camera difficulties, I had been brainstorming on how we could get a replacement. My best friend was coming down the next day so I decided to call my mom (who is a customer service manager at a Walmart) to see if she would buy me a new camera and send it with my friend when she came the next day. My mom was at work so she went over to the cameras and told me what they had and pointed out that one of the Sony cameras was regularly almost $500 but on clearance for $314. It was the DSC-H1 which I had looked at before, so I told her to get it. I then had to call my friend and ask her to go pick it up and bring it. By the time that was all said and done, it was time for dinner. We went to checkin at WCC and were seated within a few minutes. We started off with some drinks and both ordered the skillet. Our only complaint was that it was really loud, but many of the antics were rather comical. Our server, "Bobby the Kid", was rather entertaining. He busted 2 guys at another table for chewing gum and had them put the gum on the tip of their noses. I knew DP was going to ask for ketchup, and Bobby made him stand up and yell with him that he needed ketchup. However, no one brought any. Bobby went around and gathered about 6 bottles and brought them to the table. It was a pretty good meal, but we didn't come anywhere close to eating all of the food. After dinner we walked around a little and then decided to take the boat over to MK. It was after we arrived at the boat dock that we realized that it probably wasn't the best idea. It was pretty cold down by the water. We suffered thru it and got on the boat and headed to MK. We went over and rode astroblasters and then found a spot to watch wishes at the bridge. A family came up shortly thereafter and the one lady was being really annoying, yelling at her son for ruining their vacation and stating how she would be on a cruise in Alaska if it weren't for him and his sister. I was like... wow... gotta love the magic of bad parenting. I guess she was "Wishing" she didn't have kids so she could be in Alaska right then. Anyway, the fireworks started and she changed her tone. We enjoyed the show, as always, and then headed back over to the BW. When we got back to the room, we crashed. It had been a long day. Tune in later for day 2 (MGM/Disney Studios), dinner at Hollywood and Vine, and a quick stop at SSR and Downtown Disney!
