Love reading all of the updates and seeing all of the pictures!! Makes it more bearable for me to wait until September 2017
Same happened to us at our campsite, they almost finished the bag and they chewed a hole in our propane hose. I posted pics in our Dec trip report.We were looping feeding the squirrels peanuts from a ziploc bag. We decided to go over to the Poly. We parked at the marina. When we came back a squirrel had pulled the bag from the glove box onto the seat. He ate half the bag and left the shells all over the seat. I bet people got quite a kick out of that and maybe some good pics.
We bought quick and pre-made sides and grilled a meat. Bagged salad and dressing, potato salad, beans macaroni salad, cole slaw. There is a Wal-Mart and a Publix not too far. Also the Premium Outlets on Vineland had a Disney Character Outlet store, great deals!Also your favorite quick and easy dinners.
I'll have to check that out! We'll probably stop at Super Walmart or Target since I'll be buying stuff like diapers too.We bought quick and pre-made sides and grilled a meat.

The last time we where there, we stopped at Walmart about 10 pm and it was packed. Only 2 registers open. We started to do all of our grocery shopping at the Publix in Windermere, about 12 miles away.I'll have to check that out!

Melissa, These large groups occur elsewhere also. I work for a park and see this all to often from all ethnic origins. The get in a large group and the mob mentality takes over and all common courtesy goes out the window. Glad Disney made right by you and the family. Sorry to hear you had to cut short, safe travels and can't wait until you get a chance to write up the TR for us all to enjoy.Thanks Ed!
You can't go on vacation and not have a hick-up somewhere in there, right? Disney took care of us and resolved the problem right away! I don't feel that Disney should allow groups like that to camp in the 1500 loop. I know "their" definition of group camping is 100 plus but feel when you get three or more sites with multiple families, then they should be moved to the group area. 1500 is small and peaceful (most of the time) and when they allow that, they allow that to affect every other camper on that loop. I don't think that is right. But, like I said, they handled it and made us comfortable again. While there was a temporary moment of a very unhappy camper family, it was very short lived. Our hotel stay couldn't have come at a better time. I think I'm even more greatful after hearing Kris's comment on the noise level of the storm alone.
Kids had the time of their lives (again). Yes, it was their home and made many new friends and also had friends from Canada that were their at same time last year. Grace and this girl had written letters back and forth so they were oh so happy to play together again.
All in all, this trip had only a couple small hick-ups. In all honesty, we had the very best service and delt with the very best of Cast Members and had the most pixie dust sparked on our family, than any prior trip.
Hey, I'm a local.....don't lump me into the "bad" group, lol.Yeah, that's the only thing about camping at Disney and other nice places is that locals can sometimes take our once every few years vacation and ruin the experience.
Unlike here in Mississippi at the campgrounds when your neighbors are too loud you just blast the shotgun off in the air, usually once will do. There is a brief silence then you'll hear one person over on the offending site say "sorry bout that!", maybe even offer you a beer, and all is usually well.
You don't already have one. I thought that was your sign.Holy smokes! I gotta have one of these!
That's sort of what I do, except without the shotgun. I'll wander over with a couple of beers and introduce myself and ask what the party is about. Then I sit down with them and start to chat. If I get some funny or nasty comments, I just remind them that everyone can hear them and they are spilling into everyone's site, so obviously everyone was invited. And where's the beer?...then you'll hear one person over on the offending site say "sorry bout that!", maybe even offer you a beer
