I totally get it with not wanting to cook on vacation. We only cooked once during our trip. We grilled hamburgers,hot dogs and chicken. We made it very easy on ourselves and had bagels, cereals in the mornings and for lunches when we were at the villa we had sandwiches. Not much cooking done for sure.

Hahaha. You know, my Mom always says that. "It has a full kitchen, we can cook!" And I always go "heck no we're not cooking!"

As my Mom commented below, we really only used it to have breakfast in the morning, we made sandwiches sometimes, and then on our relaxation/resort day we barbecued. The kids loved the fact that we barbecued.

Agreed. And I don't plan to ever cook a lot on vacation.

I always wondered about random golf balls when it comes to OKW or Treehouse, very happy that you did not get hit. I stayed at the Treehouse Villas in the early 90's (?) and they look great now

I left WDW on July 4th and I think Jenni's estimation of 100 people in her pants is a gross underestimation. That was definitely the hottest day of our trip!

I hadn't even thought about that prospect, but that's because I haven't ever stayed there or even really been in the area.

Wasn't that day ridiculous?! For real. And I had dressed stupidly for the weather here, and since I didn't have my luggage with me, I couldn't change when I landed. DUMB!

Loved seeing the Treehouse pictures. Not many people report on those. I have a friend who wants very much to stay in one with her family, and unfortunately that is one Disney thing I am not very familiar with to help her out. Do you have more pictures that you didn't put on here?

I took some pictures also and will have Danielle put them on Photobucket to share. I thoroughly enjoyed staying that the Treehouse. I will stay again for sure.

I hear you on that. We do usually try to stay in a place with a kitchen, but that is largely for storing milk/making proper coffee in the morning and sometimes having breakfast. Plus with having young kids having tons of milk at the ready and food when needed is great. We could probably do with a kitchenette as it isn't like we cook a full turkey dinner or anything - though having the oven to be able to re-heat leftovers is sometimes nice

It was nice having the kitchen option. My Dad is diabetic, so it was very helpful from that aspect. It was better for him to have breakfasts that are lower carb for him, so we did cook eggs periodically. But I agree. Ain't no full turkey dinner going on up in there.

Seriously! That's what he's like. If you take a moment in time and capture 20 or more pictures of him, he's looking crazy progressively throughout all of the pictures. Just wait until you see the rest of the Photopass......
