THE MURPHYS are LIVE from the YACHT CLUB ~ May 25-June 1

The Murphy's are LIVE from
Disney's Yacht Club Resort
May 25 - June 1, 2013





Hello DIS family! I hope everyone is ready for another fun filled virtual trip to WDW with me! I'm in full swing packing mode with just a little over 48 hours to go until I'm back HOME in Disney World. Those of you who were along with me in January know I had a broken toe which resulted in being less than carefully pushed around in a wheelchair by my children! Doesn't every mother love a free-fall down the ramp into the Jungle Cruise??? Thankfully I am in tip top physical condition this time around and hopefully can avoid breaking any bones between now and Saturday!

The plan this time:

*7 nights at the YC GV CL (those who don't know that stands for Yacht Club garden view club level)

*Annual Passes

*No Dining Plan, but ADRs for... Cape May, Narcoosee's, Chefs de France, Nine Dragons, Le Cellier, Coral Reef, Mama Melrose, and Crystal Palace.

*Renting a car - decided to cancel ME and try a rental car instead

If you are new to my live reports you are in for a treat! Basically I just tell you what we are doing as it happens (the good and the bad) as well as post lots of pictures. I love to answer questions or investigate things you might be wondering about. I know people are always wanting more info about club level, so I plan to cover that thoroughly. Please feel free to ask anything here on the DIS and/or you can follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Erika_Murphy also I do Four Square: https://foursquare.com/erika_murphy After I get home I will also update my Pinterest with YC pics: http://pinterest.com/erikamurphy12/

Hi Erika!

Tagging along from the YC FAQ thread too! We will be in WDW right after you (a week at POR then a week at YC). Its our first non-CL stay at YC but I'm sure we will love it just the same!

Can't wait for your trip to start- I love to read your live reports

Wow! That was actually pretty easy. The camera puts out a Wifi signal that I can pick up on my iPhone, then I just select the picture I want to share and can send it to photobucket, or facebook, or text it! Pretty cool!!!

Looking forward to following along, we'll be at the YC in August for the first time.

OK the camera with WIFI sounds awesome, I was just wondering how to do one of these LIVE threads without bringing a computer along for pictures. Brilliant!
