Well, I had it all planned out - parks, food and extracurricular activities. But the 2 teens (my DD and her DF) I took to WDW for 10 days of fun had different ideas. BOYS!!! Need I say more? We had lunch ressies at the Garden Grill first thing so once we had checked into DVC Wilderness Villas we took a boat across the lake to MK and then the Monorail to Epcot. We werent there for 5 minutes when they had met a couple teenage boys staying at Fort Wilderness. I dont even know what happened! We were just inside the park walking by Spaceship Earth and the next thing I know theyre yelling at me to wait up or meet us later. We didnt spend much time with these guys in the parks but darn, they kept showing up at the Hot Tub of our resorts at mid-night! LOL! That was just the beginning I'm afraid! There were many other boys and Im sure I have a new gray hair for each one of them! But I digress! Let me list the highlights for you. Transportation Houston to Orlando and Back on SWA Not my favorite airline but I got tickets early enough to get a 2 for 1 price. Towncar to and from WDW the only way to go IMHO. Lodging Hilton Garden Inn by the Airport I dont like to spend my points on a late arrival so we stayed the first night close to the airport with free shuttle service for ~$70 with free shuttle service. 2 Nights @ WDW WLV only a view of the main Lodge but I really like this place. Very relaxing! The evenings in the hot tub with the sounds of crickets and other (Fabricated, LOL) wilderness creatures makes for the most secluded experience in all the WDW resorts to date! 7 Nights @ WDW BCV We opened the place up July first. The girls REALLY loved this place! I think its a great resort for families with kids any age or teens which I had two this time around. The location is the best! We had a studio on the 5th floor 544 I think. We had a wonderful view of the Epcot Fireworks from our balcony and a 5 minute walk to the back gate of Epcot. It really is centrally located. Five minutes to Epcot monorail to MK. Short boat ride to MGM Disney Studios. Speaking of Fireworks, we hung out at MK all day in order to catch the Fireworks. Just before the show we went to the front gate so we could quickly take a bus to BCV in order to catch the Epcot Fireworks an hour later. MK fireworks were spectacular! Behind the Castle and over the 7 Seas Lagoon with a 360 degree grand finale! Jumped on the bus and had 30 minutes before the Epcot fireworks from the balcony. An Awesome Evening of Patriotism! Dinning Garden Grill (Epcot) not the best food but cool characters! Hollywood & Vine (MGM) made the mistake of going there for dinner not the best food and no characters. Lunch is better but only because of the characters. Brown Derby (MGM) Kirks 5 Stars for good food! Alfredos (Epcot) - Kirks 4 Stars for good food! Polynesian Luau Pretty good food and great entertainment. Havent figured out the ressies though this was my 4th time there and worst seating. I made ressies 2 months in advance this time. The first time I made ressies 2 days ahead? Could it be when you actually pay for the eats? Cape May Café (BC) Im not a big breakfast eater but I enjoyed this place! Good food and great characters! Liberty Tree tavern (MK) I personally love the food here but make sure you get a character populated session. Plaza Restaurant (MK) OK for a bite. Chef De France (Epcot) My DD loves the food! I could take it or leave it except for the Crème Brule. Ohana (Poly) One of the best dinners Ive had in a while! If youre a meat eater dont miss this one. Extracurricular Typhoon Lagoon My favorite water park! 2 E-Nights Definitely worth the few bucks! Disney Quest Second time there, still a waste of time! Soccer Game @ Sports Complex The girls did this to see some of the Hot Guys they met! LOL! Shockwave There girls loved it! (Even met the sax player afterwards.) Not really my thing! PI Comedy Club Great fun! Get there early and go here first! Adventurer's Club Do this next! Pretty cool! The teens hated it though. Rock and Roll Beach Club OK for us older folks. 8-Trax In and Out. Not a place for 15 YOs. Motions Not my cup of tea but the girls HAD to stay a while here. We stayed from about 10 to 1:30. I hung out upstairs over-watching the Dance floor below, close to the bar. It started out a little quite but about 11 got so packed below it would be hard to walk through let alone dance. Got an education while I was there! Once it got packed the bouncers would hang out above with flash lights. When they saw a drink passed to someone that looked under age they would radio below and flash their light on the suspect. There was so much going on, on the dance floor that no one would notice until a bouncer came up and did his job. Made me feel a little better with my teens down stairs! The last day we had the picture on the monument thing down at Epcot. The pictures we got in the mail later looked pretty cool. If anyone is going there and would like to track them down, give me a shout and Ill give you the location. My DD says she wants to do a cruise for her 16th BD but Im considering saving my points for a two week trip. One at the BCV or BWV then another at the WLV to relax! Heres some of the pictures! http://pages.sbcglobal.net/kirk_wells/_wsn/page2.html These are "Clickable Thumbnails" so they will probably take a little time to load up if you don't have BroadBand.
