Oh my friend, this has been one hell of an amazing trip. I'm so glad you're enjoying the FB pics. They're easier to upload then to here but I have a ton from the real camera. I've got the WDW fever bad!

I have never done a trip report, but I love to plan and research everything about Disney. I always say half of the fun is in the planning and the anticipation. Have a great time!


I'm glad you're enjoying it. We're having a ball. Tonight is dinner at Boma. I'll try to post more pics soon.

Ellen, do you think #8 was with Jenny in her kitchen too?
We've relaxed at Kidani a ton Alison. And what's #8?


I will be hard pressed to not make AKV a part of every trip. The vibe is so soothing. I know it's all *staged* but I don't care, this places exudes happiness.


Off to jump in the shower after a great day at Blizzard Beach. We're going to end up with an unused day on our park hoppers. Now that's what I call relaxing.


We stayed away from F&W this weekend because according to reliable sources, it really was full of drunks.

Here are a few pics. The first set are from our night cap and bread service from Sanaa on AKV arrival night.

The next set are from our balcony over the last hour. Unreal.

Black Pearl Oro and a Chocolate Martini made into a warm coffee drink:











Dinner time from the balcony of villa 7614:

Found your trip report!! It's been giving me something to read on the way home. What a fantastic time we all had. Definitely going through post Disney depression right now. I can't wait to read about the rest of the trip & relive the memories!!

and I've got a ton of pics too and can't wait for Photopass. We just love you guys! Disney just isn't Disney without the Masters. xoxo I'm going to post our MK ones on FB after dinner if the magic glow cubes don't do me in!

Feel free to chime in.

I don't even want to think about my PDD But we've got next June to look forward to!

Love the pictures from Sanaa and of the savannah! I really hope we get to go in January, your pictures are making me homesick!

I won't spoil the fun of it, but just before you left you started to read Ellen's Kauai/Aulani TR and I think when you get back and catch up, you will laugh about your groceries when you get to that point of the report. If she wants to let you know, she can clue you in, but it was a humourous part of her trip. As you were talking about how the bell staff will be happy with you when you left, it reminded me of that.

Saw your TR and loved the title so---here I am !
Looks like a great vacation being enjoyed by all. I love seeing the pics also.
There is so much to do and never enough time for all you want to do.
You need a vacation after the vacation. Glad you had enough food !
I tend to over purchase food too !
Enjoy !
Waiting for more...

I'll reply to you all in the morning and I'm so happy you're all still with me. I just had to share this before going to bed....

Bought this little guy after Boma tonight to remind me of this amazing trip.



Crawled into bed to find these outside my window. I hope you can see them. I took the picture without a flash as not to scare them and enhanced with my phone's app. They are all sitting now.

I'll never get to sleep if the animals don't settle down.

Love the plant! I have always looked longingly at the Bonsai trees in the Japan pavilion but I am afraid I would kill it!

I think I can definitely make out 1 giraffe...and quite possibly a second one. Either that or the second one is a tree (and not a bonsai)...or both a giraffe and a tree.

Love the plant and I definately see a giraffe. How cool....

Would love to see the pic's on FB. How does one find you? That's if you don't mind my "friending" you. You can send the info via a PM if that makes you more comfortable.

It sounds like you are having an AMAZING trip....to say the least! AKL looks beautiful....and giraffes right outside...how cool! I can't wait to see more pics and hear more details. After reading along with you I my list of things to try, places to stay, and things to do is getting much longer!

Crazy, hot crowded day in MK but guess what? We've got to go back for Wishes. But first, cereal on the deck with my goofy son:




This photo typifies this trip; relaxing some days and rope dropping others. And some days had a little of both.

I am going to miss this place!

Thanks all for reading. Tomorrow is our last day and I promise to not be so random in my posting.
