The pictures are wonderful. I had been wanting to try out CBR this trip, but the mod race resort was POFQ. It will be on the list for next time though. It looks so tranquil and beautiful.

Those clouds look awfully scary though. I would have holed up too and not come out.

Can you remind me what time of year you're going again? That would definitely sway my advice on which resort I think you'd like better. That being said, if you're looking for something relaxing when you're not in the parks, then CBR is definitely it.
Thank you for listening. We are going from 11/28-12/10.

Thank you Heidi for your input. I am sure he would love it.

I do love POFQ, but for totally different reasons. When I was at CBR, I really felt like I was having a vacation separate from the park atmosphere. It felt so tropical and relaxing to me.

We did that for a bit. I can't imagine walking around in that. Especially with the lightning right outside our window.

I have no frame of reference for that time of year, except a short weekend I did one December, and we stayed at the Yacht Club.

I have to agree with Heidi, though, if your DH likes that more relaxed beachy feel, then CBR will be far better for you than Pop.

Well I did make a change. We are staying at WL. I thought about it and decided that since we are going for so long we would really appreciate the extra room. My dh said this morning he was wishing we could stay at WL so that cemented the decision for me. I am keeping it a surprise for him.

If there's one resort I would recommend immediately over CBR, it's the Wilderness Lodge. For a first visit, you cannot beat the transportation, the interior corridors, the fun pool! Let me tell you, if it's pouring rain outside, there's nothing better than being able to walk to the food court completely dry.

I'm so happy for you!

Help.

Hey, guys? DH and I are having a really hard time agreeing on a name for the little bean. We like unusual names, and our five year old son has an Italian first name, Irish middle name.

I'm just wondering, if any of you are willing to share your favorite boy names? Even if it's something you wouldn't name your child, but you just like, or that you've come across?

I am so sick of looking at baby books and online sites and not being able to agree on anything.

Again, only if you want to. Thanks!

I am really excited and it looks so beautiful all decked out for Christmas. I know Alexia will love the boat. I hear you on the interior corridors and I am looking forward to covered bus stops too. They only had bunk bed courtyard view left so that is the room we are booked in. My said she will keep looking to see if a standard view room opens up though.

Your daughter would love the bunk bed, so if you don't get standard, that'll definitely be fun for her! Covered bus stops. Is there nothing sweeter?

I shall think about baby names today. I will tell you that Connor was almost a Declan -- another good, unusual Irish name.

Ok I changed my resort again. I always thought that I had wanted to stay at WL but I really wasn't feeling it. I wasn't feeling Pop either but now I feel like I have the right resort. We are staying in a savannah view room at AKL. It was cheaper than the room I had a WL. My dd will LOVE it. She has said she wants to work in a zoo with the animals, but not cows, ever since she was 2. I do have to say I was surprised it was cheaper, but I am really excited. I am not telling my dd and dh so they will be surprised when we get there.
