I'm with Beast
- Jan 5, 2009
Many places also offer an AP discount, or DVC. At least ne of my apps shows which are offered at each location and it's incredibly helpful!Great job on the PP borders, Cynthia- the one where Mary Ellen has Minnie legs and feet is so cute.
Love, love, love the pictures of the Yacht Club. The ones of the marina and lighthouse are my favorites. Great perspective. But you also got some great shots of the exterior of the resort.
I am so glad you went to Captain's Grille, and enjoyed it!!!
That is one of the few restaurants we will be dining at in July.
A couple of things-
For those not on DDP and without TiW, there is a 10% discount on meals if you use your Disney Visa
No but I'll need to look for it! I absolutely adore the YC and really wish they had villas.Did you happen to see the paintings on the wall where a ship sails from one painting to the next? Dawnbu40 is the one who alerted me to those after her trip. Can't wait to check that out myself!
I agree, I couldn't bear to see Mickey all slimey!I've looked at the Mickey strainer, but it is too cute to cover up with icky stuff, and it is also too expensive. I'd be curious to know how well they sell. I have several Disney kitchen items, but they are more seen and/or practical.
I had fun with it and so did the boys. Jeff got tired of the texts.You guys got a good start to the day! I've never joined the initial TSM fp rush, what a line!
RnR is my favourite ride too! (Well, depending on the day... )
Love all the t-shirt pics, makes me want some more!
that line was nuts
I will! We've got a few more shirts to go firstGreat additions, Cynthia. You got some great pics of the performers at the Studios.
And I love the various t-shirts you kept taking pictures of for the E's. I hope at the end you let us know which ones you ended up purchasing.
Good idea!I love that sink stopper and think I'm going to get it on the next trip and tell the men in this house to take it out and use the old one when doing dishes, etc
it is such a lovely walkI love the photos of the walk from the Studios to the BW; we only took the boat when we were there in December after meeting Nicki and Todd at the Dolphin; we'll have to try the walk since we are staying at the BWV in December.
definitely a shame!Cynthia what a shame no one had any T shirts !!! Seriously Great Update !!!
not anymore than anyone else but it is darn cute and I still really want it.If anyone deserves the "Amazing Feats of Juggling" t-shirt, it's you!
Oh my gosh, those strollers. YIKES! Made me glad my kids are olderThe picture of the strollers and your caption are hilarious! Wow! I'm so glad I'm past having to go to those shows.
It was a great day at HS- I especially appreciate the timing info for TSM and the FP return window.
It is a GREAT gift shop and much as I hate to say it to you, I think better than the Marketplace.I also enjoyed seeing the merchandise inside of Fittings & Fairings. I haven't been in there. Didn't even know about the gift shop there at the YC until I started working on the FAQ thread.
It was a good welcome home drink, who knew then it would actually become a "real" home for me!Thanks for sharing the Margarita menus. What a great poolside "Welcome Home" drink.
Can't wait to see what your home looks like, and looks onto.
The YC is so pretty and I love that Marina setting for functionsI've never stepped into the yacht club but it looks beautiful!! I love seeing the different set ups they do for weddings at Disney I think I need to renew my vows there!!!
I thought it was Chelsea's boyfriend, it was actually Mary Ellen's idea of me to kiss Bo and post it on Jackie's wall on FB.I saw you kissing Pat's boyfriend there in Hollywood studios Cynthia !!
The Classic was delish!Thanks for the margarita menus! We're on the countdown and I'll be day dreaming about which oneS to choose!
Relax, no rush!So - not exactly sure when I will get to replies. Maybe I should take my computer with me tomorrow.
Great update Cynthia. Love it!
I truly adore the YC. I can't imagine using points to stay there but really would love to stay again someday but now that we are DVC I don't really see that happening, we will just have to wave from the Boardwalk. I had a lot of fun with the T's.All caught up! All caught up, again! (the question is, for how long. )
Love all the updates, ladies! So many awesome and fun photos to look at.
DHS sounds like a lot of fun. And I love all the pics of the T-shirts. We love to walk back to BW too! Such a relaxing walk (if you do NOT take it in the August noon heat )
The YC is beautiful, isn't it. We SO loved our stay there. And I am with you on the resort merchandise - so nice to see reappear. Unfortunately when we were there in February, the Contemporary had NONE!!!!
It was a very fun morning with some nice downtime at the pool.I love all the updates. Such great pictures!
How sad to leave WL... but I have to say where you were headed was pretty darn cool!!!
You got so much done in such a short amount of time that morning! I am in awe.
Definitely look at one of the apps (I can see which shows what if you like) as they will show which places have DDP, TIW, AP, DVC discounts and for what meals, it's pretty cool! We probably won't do the DDP on our next family trip and I need to determine whether getting TIW makes sense or not. My issue with the TIW is exactly that, very very few discounts on CS. Which normally would be great for us but with the mix of kids we will be doing more CS than my family normally would and so...spreadsheet time!In planning for a falls girl trip myself, I am tucking away little tips about restaurants each time you mention one that was a good choice to use the TIW card. We most likely wont be on the dp, and since I have an AP now... my thought is to get the TIW card and then maybe that will save us. However... I am wondering if we should make more ADRs if a ts will come out to be not a lot more than a cs (since cs wont have any discount)
It is such a lovely walk and not long at all. Even closer from the BW! I had a lot of fun with the T's...there are more to come.Love that you got to see the set up for a wedding reception. How cool to have a wedding and or reception there!!! So jealous of those people!!!
I stayed once... only once at the YC. so we could have used that walkway between DHS and Epcot....but we didn't. I never knew were it was and I figured it would be too long of a walk. This last trip I finally was able to walk it. It is actually not long and a really nice walk, especially on a beautiful day!
And last but not least... your tshirt pics are cracking me up!
What a lovely set of locations to choose from!I have to say, this post made me SO excited for the wedding planning...not only were you taking pictures of our ceremony and reception areas, but you happened to also take pictures of the 3 areas we had just been deliberating between for our rehearsal dinner! (Boardwalk croquet lawn, Boardwalk quiet pool lawn, and the Yacht Club Marina) Too funny! (Spoiler alert, we ended up choosing the Boardwalk Croquet Lawn - and your photos along the path next to it were super-helpful! )
Okay marking my spot kinda like you guys on the Doggie Trail
Congrats to Connor!Mary Ellen,
I am playing catch up again...Love the Halloween party pics (hat and all). LOL at the Belle pics with random guest comments! Thanks for the good laugh! Can't believe you stayed up to midnight, I also would have forgotten my mode of transport by that time as well!
College acceptances - congrats to Nick. Connor has 2 of those top three (did not apply to Maryland, applied to the smaller UMBC instead), but accepted to VA Tech and honors at UD engineering. Also accepted to Villanova and awaiting decision from Lehigh. He will be down to that May 1 deadline to decide. Keep us posted on Nick's decision!
On to finish your excellent trip report!
It was a fun day and honestly, didn't really feel busy at all! Nice pace actually.Mary Ellen & Cynthia - Wow your last MK / WL day, you sure were busy. Love, love the New Fantasyland pics! Beautiful. And the the Poly pool and Citricos dinner AND back to MK. Very impressed.
Look forward to seeing your view from BWV. The quiet pool looks so relaxing.
