    Awe! great DISmeet! Nikki will be a beautiful bride!

    Loved your Valentine's report - thanks for sharing! Thanks for the wine recommendations!:thumbsup2 A cab I love that is smooth like chocolate is Sterling (either founder's or estate - I can't remember) You might try that one some time and see how it compares.

    Oh yes I am!!! We are on a 6:30am flight out the morning after our wedding! Heading to the Poly from Sunday through Saturday morning and from there, the DCL western cruise!! I am so excited and I will definitely tell all about it when I get back!

    :blush: That's very nice of you to say!

    Thanx for that color! I think we're gonna lay the prefinished hardwoods (we're gonna do it ourselves in my office and if it's as easy as "they" say, we're gonna do the whole downstairs! :scared: ).

    Yes! I think we're gonna do the KP Challenge in two weeks with Ally so if it's as cool as "they" say, I'm all over it! Who are "they" anyway? :rotfl2:

    Ellen,

    Wow...I'm sad to see this trip report come to an end. This has truly been one of the best trip reports ever.

    Did your boys enjoy DQ? Our DS loved it, but it was sooo crowded and all the bigger teens seemed to take over the day we were there. Still, we plan to do DQ again on our last day of our upcoming trip. Pods looks like was WAY too into that boxing thing!!

    Those new BLT rooms look very nice, but if we were DVC I think I would go AKV instead.

    Congrats on the DISmeet with Nikki! How cool is that? :cool2:

    Absolutely love your dog....she's beautiful! I wanted a big, mellow yellow dog like that, but we ended up with a silky terrior! Well, as you know, I do love my terrior, Truman!

    Oh, thanks for the V-day food porn. Nice! Next thing you know, your boys are going to be like my kids...."Dad, can we eat our food now, or do you need to take a picture of it first?" :rotfl2: Poor kids - I've warped them into thinking that taking food pictures is just a normal thing that every family does! :rotfl2:

    We are excited about our DISmeet with you & DGFs in May! Maybe next time we can meet Pods and the boys as well.

    I have really enjoyed reading your trip report! It was my first cruise trip report--and just by chance, I am from NJ too! I am not sure how I stumbled on your TR--just by chance I guess.

    I have taken lots of notes/tips for our upcoming cruise (in 2011 :rolleyes: ). I don't think we can do a Jersey Week cruise but possibly the week after. The weather looked great which was a big concern for me!

    Again, thanks for sharing your family memories with us!

    Blakely

    Hi nikki! You need to look for anewmac's TR and Zweihund's tr- they're both really good and about the Western. But thanks for the big compliment, I feel honored!! :goodvibes

    Thanks for reading so faithfully, Alan!! Can't wait for our Dismeet in May!!:woohoo: I'll be back to Disney with the whole family in November, don't know if you'll be there then-but if so, we'd love to hook up!!:thumbsup2

    Hi Blakely!! Thanks for reading- you will have a great time on the cruise!! Do you live nearby in NJ?

    I loved the dog pics, too!:rotfl2: When I looked over and saw them sitting there like that, it totally cracked me up. Then i was sayin, "Kids- bad Valentine's Day news!! Daddy's found a new girl!" and we were all laughing at the photos!:lmao:

    Hi! As promised, there's a link in my sig to my brand new TR about St John which I've just started on the Community Board (Thanks Tammie!). Please come over and say hi!! There'll be tons of photos of ST John and the area, so if you're headed out on an Eastern cruise, it may help you get excited for the beauty of the eastern Caribbean!!

    Thanks-
    Ellen:hippie:

    Hey girl! I was not aware this tr was still going on; thought it ended with the pictures of me on the BW!


    So cool to hook up with another DISer! I think I have enjoyed Nikki's food porn over the years here on the DIS. So - she's a Jersey girl too

    Yes - NEW JERSEY IS THE GREATEST STATE IN THE COUNTRY - BYOB restaurants AND full-service gas stations! WOOT!:banana:

    And I can't believe I knew about the fabulousness of Caymus before a wine expert such as yourself. You might want to mention to your readers though - that stuff ain't cheap!;)

    How did you book and pay in advance, if you don't mind my asking? I'm sure I'll have to resort to a little subterfuge as well if I want the goodies too.:confused3 I thought the REAS was just added to the price of your cruise. BTW, I had seen this in your cruise TR when I read the whole thing the first time around but couldn't remember who posted it so I've been searching all afternoon.:surfweb: :lmao:

    Yes- the Caymus is a LOT more than we would spend in a liquor store on a bottle of wine- it's like $65. Pods was like, "glad you enjoyed it...now forget about it!":lmao: And I am NO expert- I just have a good friend who SERIOUSLY is and she steers me in the right direction because she knows what my palate likes. Kinda cool having a personal sommelier that's so amazing Martha Stewart has hired her for the radio!

    I called and found out the exact amount and then purchased a Visa debit card at a bank- this "excursion" they charge you for before the cruise. But there is some weird rule about cruise charges and credit cards- so the exact amount was not enough- they needed more $, which they then refunded to my credit card later (something to do with an assumed gratuity, i think). So I had about $65 on my Disney Visa, and then $300whatever on my Visa debit. he really never knew! Good luck!:thumbsup2 And I can't believe you remembered the story and searched all day!!

    Hi JUDY!!!!! How nice to see you again! So sorry about your computer! How AWFUL for you- what was the virus? Well, I hope you're all doing well.

    I wanted to let everyone know that my disfriend, Nikkiloveswdw, has started a GREAT TR- she's getting married in July and honeymooning in WDW AND DCL Western. And Nikki LOVES photos, so even the pre-trippie is loaded with them. I really hope you'll go read it! And come read my St John TR!! The link is in my sig-

    Thanks Ellen!!! Come on by, everyone!!

    There is a link in my signature to my TR on the TR board but I also have one on the cruise tr board as well, in case you stumble upon that one. It's the same updates, just two different places! :thumbsup2

    I know I read this during my first pass through your TR - but could you break down the REAS by item and estimated value of the item? I know one of your main reasons for REAS was early booking of Palo, but now that you are Castaway Cay members and can reserve early anyway, would you sign up for REAS again? Is it something that you would repeat or would you use the money for something else next time??? Is it something you would recommend to others?
