    1st, let me say Welcome to the groupies vacationer1954!!!!
    Just hanging out at the resort, taking in the ambiance of it all is a great way to spend the day at WL/VWL. Carolewood Pacific Room by the fireplace with a cup o Joe or hot chocolate is a good place to start, play checkers there, enjoy a good book, or just take a nap. Listen to the music playing faintly in the background, and watch the lanterns flicker while the crickets chirp at night.

    Dont mean to worry you. I think for us its not so much about the beds, though the ones at DVC are more comfortable, its more the state of mind. I just feel more relaxed at a DVC resort, its just feels like home. But you are going to be in WDW, and you are probably like the rest of us, you would stay in a tent if it meant you were in WDW;)

    I almost spit out my coffee on this one Twink :lmao:

    1954? If that is the year born, a very good year!:thumbsup2

    JimmyTammy offered some great suggestions. Plus WL has some great areas to explore, go on an expedition!

    You are right, JT, it is much more than the beds. All of my complaints came flooding to my head and I started to type them, but I didn't want it to bash 'the accident' that badly. ;)

    Love, love love the pictures JT. Thanks for posting!

    Thanks folks for the nice comments about the photos, Im enjoying sharing them

    Yesterday, we met up with friends from home and enjoyed MK together. We ate at LTT for lunch, then did the new Sorcerers game. Lots of fun, and a different way to exp. MK. Then we headed to POR to see YeeHa Bob and Tammy got to lead us all in clapping while sitting on his piano stool, then she lead us doing the Rumba around the room. Its so funny because she is somewhat shy and reserved.

    Just saw the grand opening of the new Fantasyland with Jordan Sparks singing, Tom Staggs(Bigwig within the WDW Co.)and Jennifer Goodwin(Snow White from Once Upon a Time) along with many characters and some clowns from Circusland on TV here. It was pretty cool. Im sure there is a posting of it by now on YouTube.

    Going to HS today with friends, eating at 50s then hoping to see Fantasmic. Havent seen it in awhile.

    I have been in shorts everyday since last Fri. I would bring a pair of pants and sweatshirt to be safe. Nights havent been bad. Im sure if you are going to be sitting or still for awhile at night, a light jacket may be nice to have, but weather has been very pleasant so far. I have been checking out Weatherchannel.com everyday and they have been spot on. You can do a 10 forecast with them for Disneyworld.

    I also wish you the happiest of days, twinklebug!
    Hope it is the best.




    Have any of you seen the rumor that Cars Land is coming to WDW.
    Supposedly Disney is going to make the announcement possibly this week.
    It will go in DHS in the place of Lights, Motors, Action and the Backlot Tour area if more space is needed.
    Guess we will see. They will have a lot going on if they do that and the Avatars over in Animal Kingdom.



    Also, welcome to vacationer1954. I agree with Muushka, if 1954 is year born a very great year!!! :thumbsup2

    :cool1: A Big Groupie Welcome vacationer 1954 :cool1:

    We're looking forward to a visit to Bok Tower Gardens in Feb as well
    I have been looking at their web site and they seem to have some
    wonderful Christmas programs
    I haven't been yet but our DD recommends it highly

    http://boktowergardens.org/

    Bok Tower is a tower of bells.... beautiful!
    here's the web page .... the bells are a special type where the bell itself doesn't move just the clappers and they have to be played.


    Amen :thumbsup2

    Hey Jimmy You and those ZITI sisters... lookk good in Red ;)

    thanks for all the pics! :thumbsup2


    Happy Belated Birthday TWINKLEBUG

    Hey Maria did you make the cupcake?

    Sorry folks for not checking in sooner today. Ts friend Tearsa came over today so they could finish up a blanket they have been crocheting for my mom of Scarlett O Hara. So Casey and me went to DQ for awhile, and got sensory overloaded. He was ready to go sooner than I expected, no fuss from me;)

    We are heading over to meet friends from back home at Ragland Rd. at 8. Looking forward to catching with everyone tomorrow at 8 at BLT.

    BTW, if yall know about Ye Haa Bob, he has us posted on his weekly pics, 1st pic top left, our friends are just to our right in the next pic.
