Will there be food porn of some of the villa meals later in your trip? Somehow, food that you cook yourself does not seem as photoworthy as what is served to you. Plus, that was a pretty full itinerary you had that evening!

What a score on your private bus taking you where you wanted to go!

Sounds like everyone had a good night- or at least what was needed. Some studying, some fun.

Sorry you came back to some noise from the pool when you were trying to sleep. The biggest disturbance we every experienced on vacation was when we were staying in Jamaica. On our last night, as we were trying to get some sleep before our early return home, there was a concert going on in an alley outside our room. None of us could sleep to the pounding bass and amplified singing- from Sean Kingston!

What a great bus driver!

Yeehaw Bob sounds like a fun time. I will have to add that to my list of things to check out someday.

You know, I have yet to see Bob (despite having stayed at POR/FQ three times....). It looks like a fun evening! I've seen the jazz guy at FQ and that was a really good show.

Really enjoying your TR!.....keep it coming!!

It sounds and looks like the boys really got into Yeehaw Bob show! It's so fun to see boys who normally think they are too cool or too old to participate let loose and just have fun.

I'm glad to hear that the ruckus at the "quiet" pool didn't last too terribly long.

Wow! What a really nice bus driver!! for the pixie dust!!

It sounds like such a fun night! We've been tossing around staying at POR on our next trip. We'll definitely have to make a point to see Yeehaw Bob one night during our trip!

Looks like a great night. We've stayed at the POR twice and had drinks at the River Roost but never during Yeehaw Bob's show. He sounds like a great entertainer. That's one of the things I love about WDW, there are so many things to do beyond the parks. I'm hoping to follow suit and really enjoy all 3 resorts were staying in. Split stays sure look better on paper. Hope our transitions run smoothly.

Did K get all of her work done and enjoy the Olympics while you were enjoying the show?


Kouzzina sounds good. I'll make an ADR. For the 22nd. I'm a little scattered.

I had been catching up on my phone during yesterday's Field Hockey play day and am so glad that I was home on my PC to read your peddal boat experience -- I'd been waiting for it since E's big let down

This photo is beautiful --

You should have gotten a prize for going further than anyone had ever gone before, don't ya think? LOL That looks like an amazing river to go down--your photos are great.

Sounds like a great night where everyone got to do what they wanted (well I'm sure Kendall didnt WANT to do homework, but she did get to watch Michael Phelps. and maybe Jeff was ready for a little kick back time, too?

YeeHaw Bob looks like fun, and even Mr. Cool seems to get down a bit (like on the floor? can't wait to see what exactly that was all about!)

What sort of cookware do they have in the villas? I'm guessing a fry pan, a sauce pan, maybe a medium sized pot? We'll be renting DVC points for our next trip & plan to use the kitchen a bit so it never hurts to plan way out (even if we have over a year to wait WAAAHHH)

as always LOVE your TR's C!

You sure packed a lot into the afternoon and evening.

For pixie dust for the bus driver.

YeeHaw Bob is a great show. I really need to get back there and experience it with a large group. And probably have a few to drink.

Hey there! I have been going through my busy time of the year at work, and have not been on here at all. I am spending my Sunday afternoon catching up on TR's, and I just finished your update about the day you flew out for your trip. I can't believe how crazy that day was for you! I was almost hyperventillating as I was reading it. Big kudos to you for handling it so well. I probably would have been in a corner somewhere, breathing into a paper bag with my head between my knees!

Going back to read more!

Ok, I fixed again. LOL! You can tell I don't do the video thing much huh. I don't like the way Photobucket shows them, takes people to your whole Photobucket library, despite what the settings say and I don't love having everything on YouTube for god and country to see so was trying to get it set up right.

I think it is now...let me know!

Yeehaw Bob sounds like fun! Too bad about the noise at the "quiet pool"...

What a fun evening with Yeehaw Bob! We'll have to make sure we see him if the opportunity arises.

And a great bus driver! My mom & I got rescued by a nice driver back in 2008. We were staying at Pop but somehow ended up at Epcot when leaving MK. Who knows why at this point... but it was long past closed & a lone bus found us wandering around & brought us back to Pop Century. He wouldn't take a tip.

Phelps didn't get off to the best start in the Olympics this year... Alex swims so he was really into watching the swim races, especially Phelps, probably because he is one of the names he recognized.
