Those fireworks looked amazing!
That is so sad that your brother was sick I always secretly worry for a few weeks before I go to Disney every year. I'm always like "please don't get sick".

Did they have anything about the new Test Track in the Stacey video when you were there?

I really don't like bread pudding anywhere other than WDW. I didn't know Cape May had a french toast version! And I agree with you, Minnie's outfit is adorable there.

I am so ridiculously excited to be getting back to Yachtsman on this trip!

Do you remember where in DHS you got the mug and hot chocolate for $5? Something I'll want to look out for!

Thanks for the advice about getting to Splittsville early! It's one of the things we're considering doing towards the end of our trip, if we've able to get done most of the things we want to in the parks.

I already know I am going to be an emotional basket case when I step into New Fantasyland for the first time (and every subsequent time).

I almost jumped through the screen when i saw that bowling ball with mickey on it. I want one and I don't even bowl like that. The fireworks look amazing and i am so excited to see the new fantasyland. I have to wait till spetember though. boo.
I did strollers at Epcot on my CP. It was technically called future world north merchandise because we also worked that whole area under spaceship earth,package pick up and leave a legacy when it was still up. I know you will have an amazing time. I am excited for you!

Jess, I'm loving your trip report!! I forgot that we were at the Beach Club at the same time. We were also at Fantasy of the Sky fireworks on the 30th - stood behind Cinderella castle and it was just amazing. The whole trip was worth it for those fireworks alone- just took my breath away!!!! We were one floor below you in the Beach Club, in room 455 and also had a view of Spaceship Earth- check out our balcony!!:



Can't wait to hear how you spent your New Years! We were in Epcot and it was one of the BEST days of my life.

My mom and I are planning to go to Splitsville in August since I have heard SO many great things about it. First of all, the food looks INCREDIBLE and second of all, I love bowling, but I stink at it of course. And I want to get there EARLY. I have heard there have been up to FOUR HOUR WAITS to bowl.

I LOVE your New Fantasyland pin!

Your view from the YaCHt Club GAHHHH LOVE.

Wow, the Flying Fish is beautiful. I have never been before and I think that needs to change!

NEW FANTASYLAND. Iím getting emotional. I JUST LOVE IT.

Yeah. Iím not a fan of the mermaids too. Like, nooo. Get rid of them. It just doesnít work for Pirates.

UmmmÖ.THOSE FIREWORKS OMG.

Splitsville looks like it was an awesome time!! That red velvet cake would definitely be on my list of things to try, yay!

I love the Disney bus guy! Those announcements always get me so excited for the day! Oh gosh, that Rapunzel wedding dress for the kids is absolutely amazing, I almost bought it haha.

That room is amazing!! Iíd love to get a chance to stay at the Yacht club at some point, itís so beautiful! And that view!!

Flying Fish does not look like what I expected! I didnít realize it was a signature place, it all sounds delicious!!

AH! I didnít even think to check out the bathroom at all in New Fantasyland, the entire area is so well themed, I absolutely love it! That tea set is incredible! I would totally buy it!

Iím not excited for the mermaids, I didnít see them at all when I was last there, and the fact that the dead men tell no tales is gone is just not right!! Oh wowÖ..those fireworks are absolutely beautiful! What a magical experience!

Wow, so many great updates! Splitsville sounds like so much fun. I would love to go there in April but since I only have 5 full days I doubt we'll be able to get it in. Hopefully on another trip though!

Love the YC pictures, as well as the Boardwalk ones. It makes me miss the Boardwalk since we stayed there last April. So we kind of had the opposite view.

That Mrs. Potts tea set is SO CUTE.

Great souvenirs! Don't you love how they have more resort specific merchandise now? The Beach Club shirt is cute too!

Can't wait to hear about your New Fantasyland experience? You know, New Fantasyland actually has a bit of a record in my vacation book. On my most recent trip (December 2012), Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid was the first ride I went on.

Awesome report on Splitsville!

I had no idea it was so nice-would never have guessed they have table service.

I would just like to take a minute and thank you for using your SPARE time to write so many STRIKE(ingly) awesome updates for all of us TURKEYS here on The DIS before you SPLIT and ROLL on down to O-Town.

I agree with you about the POTC Mermaids!

Way to take charge and get things MOVING on the PeopleMOVER!!!!

Your Dad is SO right!I know that my week-long Vacations at WDW FLY by and "feel" like just a couple of days,so I am sure your CP will also go by much too quickly,so cherish and enjoy every MAGICAL SECOND!!!!

I am so sad after a week at WDW when I have to board The Sad Bus-I cannot imagine how you are going to feel at the end of your CP,but you will have had an experience of a lifetime to remember forever!!!!

Cherish is the word!!!!
