yay you started your TR! It looks like you had a great birthday! Did you like staying at Port Orleans in the "bayou" section? I love that resort

Awesome!!! Can't wait to read some more

Also, DVC is so worth it!!! If you visit Disney once a year and love staying at the deluxe resorts (or ever wanted to) then DVC is the way to go. You save so much money in the long wrong and it's something your family and future kids can enjoy. Plus, now you can use your membership to visit their Hawaii resort, which we will be doing in 2012. We ended up booking 5 nights at BLT in a 1bedroom lake view and 4 nights at the BW in a studio boardwalk view for 200 points, it would of cost us over $4000.00 just for the rooms.

Day 1/ Part 2

Thank you to everyone who has been reading along and a Happy Thanksgiving! I just got home from the "Black Friday" sales ~ there's some nut jobs out there Anyway, back to the TR.

On a side note, I just wanted to say that we received a refund of $3,000 from Disney based on the BOC bar. I had been really nervous about this but it obviously worked out to our advantage

After we left MK we decided to head over to Bonnet Creek resort (which is on property but a part of the Wyndham (sp?) resorts) where one of DH's friends was staying with his wife. We picked up the friends and headed back to the Poly for our ADR at Ohanas.

Hhhhmmmm. I cant even begin to say how good the food was. DH actually said, aside from Bongos (where we had our Welcome Dinner) that Ohanas would have been an excellent 2nd choice.

The food was amazing. But here's where I messed up. I had 3 of these



To me, it tasted like pure vodka. The bartender who made those drinks seemed to be heavy on the hand, meaning, poured a lot of alcohol in it (which was great!)

Unfortunately here is my only picture of food



Every few minutes they would come around with various meats, stacking it on our plates. DH was stuffed, I along with our friends was stuffed. After our meal, they came out with a little cupcake and candle which I thought was sweet because I didnt expect it. Our waiter got everyone to sing "Happy Birthday" which was so nice. Over all, they had great service, I was so pleased with everything. Im also glad that I spent some time on the restaurant boards because I learned about so many other places to eat at that I had never known about. DH was like "how do you know about this or that?"

After dinner, my bridal party from California had finally arrived, so I was anxious to get over to their condo and see them. I had seen my best friend a year ago but the other two girls, it has been about 7 years, so I couldn't wait to see them.

I cant remember where they stayed but I do remember that I ran to their front door and didnt even knock, I just busted through and tackled them to the floor



Here is the main area



Us in the kitchen, remember I already had those blue drinks, then we had some wine and were chatting it up



They bought me flowers for my birthday



And then the group of us



We stayed up for hours talking until finally DH reminded us that if we were planning to do parks the following day that we should go to sleep. So we said our good byes and made plans to meet up the following day for MK. (yep, I went again)

Day 2 ~ MK With The Girls

DH and I woke up early to go have breakfast and walk around the resort for a bit while my West Coast girls tried to get ready but were pretty tired from the previous night and the difference in time change.



This was my first time having these



Not only were they cute but pretty good. So after we finished the waffles DH and I took a walk around Port Orleans Riverside. The resort is so beautiful. That morning, it was actually pretty over cast and there were predictions of rain all day. But this was really the only day me and the girls would have to go and have some fun. You cant let the rain get you down when your at Disney



I regret not having the time to take the boat to DTD but there's always next year's trip.

Finally, I get a call from the girls that they have arrived to POR and now we can all pile into the Mustang and head out to MK.



I think it's pretty funny that DH took a picture of me on the phone with my Minnie Mouse case.

Anyway, so we're off to MK.









The moment we're all there together, its like we went from being some 20-somethings to ten years old. My MOH was instantly singing the "Main Street Song" from when she was a kid. My BMs were like "oohhh ahhh"

Day 2 continued...

So, we're having a great time and what do you know...the rain begins I cant remember the name of the ride but we run quickly to the "jungle boat ride"...???....anyway, there's a small line but its under a covering (yes!) so we jump on that hoping to kill some time for the rain to pass.

We wait. We go on the ride and guess what, the rain is still coming down. So we run down a bit and go directly on to Pirates of The Caribbean.



So, we e come off of the Pirate's of Caribbean and its still raining. At this point Im getting a little concerned for my MOH because she had a thin tank top on that was gonna be see-through in a minute if she kept getting rained on, so we did the next best thing.



And because we love her we made fun of her for the rest of the day.

Magically, it stops raining, so we grab a quick lunch.



Nothing special. So we get through the park. We visited Buzz Light Year.







At this point I said, "this isnt a roller coaster is it?" (It was my first time riding this ride and I have a fear of coasters)



On to the fun!





After Buzz we came up on the "Move it, Shake it" parade!

At this point we were getting pretty tired. We walked around, went on more rides and took more pictures.







After a long long day at MK, we finally called it quits and left.



Up Next: Dinner at Boma and City Walk, Universal

I'm also looking forward to reading more!

Oh, and I have a quick question for you about the vans you rented for the dessert party ... were they really only $50 round trip? Or am I doing my math wrong, LOL? I'm asking because my PassPorter weddings book says it's $221 round trip for a van that carries 11 people ... if it's really only $50, I'd be so happy!
