We loved that treat bag. my Disfriend Lisa had asked for my address and Careys and just said she had a surprise to send. It was so nice of her. She makes these and sells them on ebay and I was so thrilled that she just gave us each one.
I think we stil lhave some of the not so popular candy left. I actually might've thrown it out now (I need to check the cupbard) or gave it to Skip to take to the barn to give to the guys. LOL

It sure was, but we did pretty good this day for not much sleep. Actually we both did fairly good the whole trip. Claire can get really crabby , but she was a trooper. The party was so worth it. I would love to plan a trip at this time again and hit both parties again. It really was neat. The downfall is my husband might murder me if I plan one that long again.

The lighting is so beautiful. I was so happy we did get to go a day earlier than planned and fit this in. It was so worth it (and worth the arguement I had with Skip about how long I was going too. LOL)

She was in heaven. I do believe we may have a treat or 2 before bed as well.

It was long, but we had that adrenaline going most of the day. It was almost perfect, wether was great, we had great resort time and fun at the party. it just would've been better if I could've had less crowds.
The dance party was really fun. Claire felto like a celebrity dancing with Woody.

Thanks.
We really injoyed Jambo. I hope to stay there again. Our next goal is a Princess room at POR, but then after that I might look at AKL again.

Nov. 3, 2013 ~ Day 3


A new day!
I think I woke up somewhere around 6:30 and 7. Claire was out like a light though. I checked my email and facebook then I showered and got ready for the day.

I took a look out on the balcony and WOW! We had a bunch of animals out there this morning.

















The views were just gorgeous!







This guy was pacing all over and squawking so loudly. I think he wanted to be on the other side of the fence.





I fooled around a bit and took a few pictures of Flat Ben for my fellow Diser Dee.
And I got this one that was so cute. Claire never saw it till we got home and she was surprised to see it.



I decided that maybe I would try to do laundry. I know that staying on DVC points you get free laundry services. I headed out for a bit too look. Just so you know, Claire knows that if she wakes up and I am not there she is NOT to leave the room or answer the door. I only leave for a few minutes at a time and come back to check on her frequently if I walk out.
So I went in search and found a room not too far away. Now we didn’t have much laundry dirty, but I thought it would be nice to stay ahead of things. Well this was not for DVC members as you had to pay to use it. I went back to the room and looked at the resort map and still couldn’t find it. I wasn’t going to pay to do a few pieces of clothing, but I would do it for free. LOL
I think I snuck out a couple of times and never could find it.
In the meantime, while out searching, I was texting my Dis/Cruise Critic friend Ellen (podsnel). She had arrived yesterday as well and was staying in some fancy shmancy suite at AKL. She invited me to her room , but they were going to be leaving soon.
I told her I was going to run and get Claire dressed and we would be right over. I got Claire up and she was a little slow, well VERY slow. I put her dress on and told her we would skip brushing the rats nest and her teeth and just head over so we didn’t miss them. She could do those things when we got back.

She grumbled a bit, but was a little curious to see the room.
We headed out and I realized that Ellen’s room was about as far down the hall as ours was, but on the other wing.
I believe this is when, as we were walking a lady came out of her room and started walking as well and then asked me if I posted on the Disboards. I told her yes and she said she read my reports. We said hellos and she told me her name …Jedijill! It was so nice to meet her!

We continued on our long journey to Ellen’s room with the clock ticking. We arrived and knocked and she answered. It was a bit chaotic in her room too, as they were getting ready to leave and some of the family was walking out the door.

This was such an awesome fun meet though. I have been following Ellen’s reports for about a year now. She is married to Pods and has 3 boys, Sean, Tyler and Timmy. I believe her brother in-laws family was staying with them too. I got to meet them all!
It was so unreal to be saying hi to Timmy and Tyler. They were just as she writes about them. Super cute boys, btw! I bet they are breaking hearts all over.
After saying hi, all of them left except for Ellen and Sean, who was sleeping on the couch. Sean is Autistic and so is my nephew. After reading some of Ellen’s reports, it’s so funny how similar they are. I give Ellen a lot of credit, because I do know how hard it can be to raise a child like that. My nephew is wonderful too, but stubborn at times. I believe Ellen once had to take one of Sean’s favorite books ransom in order for him to get on a plane to fly to Florida one year. These are things my SIL has to do at times too.
We left Sean sleeping and Ellen gave us a tour of the place. I am going to say I was really bad and not on my game as I mostly gawked at the beauty of this place rather than taking pictures. I think it had like 4 bedrooms and a pool table room, a living room and kitchen too, if I remember right and several bathrooms. Ellen was beaming. She said it was the best place she had ever stayed at.
Here are the few pictures I did take.



This is the master bathroom.



Isn’t this just so cool!







I think this was the shower tiles in there.



They had a walk in closet that was the size of some people’s bedrooms. It was massive!

We headed out to see her view.



They had 3 huge balconies! It was just amazing.



We settled in for a bit and chatted.
She was telling me how they had to cancel their annual girls cruise, as one of the girls now had to work. That was a bummer, as I love reading their reports about them. They really have a good time.
She also started talking about a Diser who lived in her town and was a school teacher, but also did side work in the same industry as I. I asked her the name and she told me. Well what a small world …that girl is my co-worker Nikki!
Soon we needed to wrap things up. WE needed to check out of our room yet and have our bags taken and go to our morning ADR and she needed to get Sean going and off to meet the rest of the family.

Claire was a tiny bit bored too. (love the wild hair)



We had Claire take pictures of us. She brightened up when we asked her to do that.



And this was the one she took with Ellen’s camera.



As we headed out, Ellen showed me one other bathroom we had missed.



Then we said good byes. She was going to be here for several more days too and we talked about possibly meeting up later in the trip, but I was so busy, as I am sure she was too, that it never happened.

We rushed back the long journey to our room. Claire brushed her teeth and I made a call to bell services to pick up our bags.
I then had the task of brushing rat city out of Claire’s hair. And guess what, the darn brush broke in it! UGH! I got it kind of put back together to finish the task and then I called my mother. They were on their way to my sisters, (where most of the family was meeting to go to the airport) and her and my Dad were stopping off at the pharmacy first. PERFECT!
I asked if she would buy a new hairbrush for Claire and bring it down and she said no problem. Thinking back, I am sure the gift shop probably had something, but I was in a small panic mode thinking that I wouldn’t have a brush for the rest of the trip.
Soon we had a knock on our door and a lady was there to take our bags. She was so nice and so funny. She asked if I normally stay at Grand Floridian, and I told her no, (I wish) and she said there is a lady who had my same hair that stays there all the time and she always recognizes her by the unusual hair. So there you have it folks. I am NOT the only one who has this crazy color, as my Mom would say.
I told her I never got a voucher for Magical Express on my door and she told me just to go to Bell services later and they will be able to write one for me.
Claire and I were using Magical Express today to get back to the airport where we would meet up with the rest of the family and then rent cars to head over to Port Canaveral. I had called a few days prior, as told by ME and had it arranged and given a time to leave. Since we weren’t catching a flight, we only had to leave about an hour before their flight arrived.

Well there was no time to take a breath and relax. We had an ADR to get to …..Boma!
We headed down and checked right in.



We only had to wait for a few minutes.





We were led to a table for 2 next to a window. I will state right now, that almost all my pictures are fuzzy or blurry. I guess I didn’t have my “game” on this morning.





We headed up and got Claire a plate of fruit.



I got a little more than fruit. LOL



Not sure why she is making such a weird face.









We both headed back up a couple of times. Claire really liked the sausage and the ham from the carving station.

Wow, that suite is something else! Do you think it was a suite or a DVC Grand Villa? Whatever it was, it was amazing. As for the free DVC laundry. If it works the same as at the Boardwalk, the machines look like they are coin operated, but the slots are filled with fake coins that just stay there. You put your laundry in, slide the coin thingy, and the machine starts up. Info for next time!

I want to know more about that room as well - I was wondering the same thing, whether it was a suite or a DVC three bedroom villa?

Good to know about the laundry. I didn't look super close, so they were probably that.

Thanks. Boma was nice. I am glad we had a chance to try it. AKL is kind of far out, so not sure we would head out that way normally just to try it.

Yes Grand Villa. It must've been the 3 bedroom. She said it was mega points and she absolutely LOVED it.
I really wish I took more pictures, but wit hso many people there, they had a lot of personal things laying around as well, and that was another reason I didn't take pictures everywhere. It was fantastic though. The balcony alone was worth it.

It sure was. I have to say I was a little jealous. Unless I win the lottery, my chances of owning DVC is next to none. My husband thinks that kind of thing is dumb, and being a stubborn farmer, he isn't like to change his mind.

I lover you signature!!!

I need to change mine. It's almost a year old now.

More nice pics - looks like lots of animals outside. That looks like the Grand Villa at Jambo House. The ones at Kidani don't have a pool table, and have a two story configuration (still, very nice - we scored one a few years ago with the Florida Resident discount, but I think I would pick Jambo next time.

Yes. I think it would be great to have, but as much time as I spend in the room, I don't know if it would be worth it for me to ever stay there. But it sure is nice.

We finished up our meal at Boma. We really enjoyed it. The juice is pretty darn good too!
I paid the bill and we gathered our belongings and headed out. Once again, we no longer had a room, so we had to carry with us what we needed for the day till it was time to leave.

We made a stop to take a couple of pictures of Claire.





And a stop off at the bathroom.








MEANWHILE! …………

My family was preparing to head to the airport. My Mom had arranged for a bus to take 10 of them to the airport in Detroit. That left Katie, Thad and their boys to go up there on their own.





Mom said they came across a bad accident on the way up and quickly called Katie to tell her to avoid it.

They arrived at the airport and settled in till it was time to board the plane. They were flying Delta.





Abby is always happy if she has a good snack.



Mom said they boarded on time, but Katie and family were practically running to the plane. I guess they had run into the accident after all and were running extremely late. I do think the flight time actually might’ve been changed to a bit later of a time. I had made the arrangements for everyone and I had it all written down in my planner so I knew when to get to the airport to meet them, but they ended up landing about 10 minutes later than I had written down. Mom said it was all “on time” and she wasn’t sure if the time changed or not. LOL

So Claire and I had just finished a nice brunch.
We headed outside a bit. I think we checked out the hot tub and took a look at the Flamingoes again.



We then decided to go over and look at the Savanna, so back through the resort we went.





A few peeks out the windows.





A picture of my little sweetheart.



We went and admired the animals. There were a ton of giraffes out today.
