Well, we are here!
We checked in to a two bedroom villa at OKW last night about 6:00 or so. We did our usual "libation" at Gurgling Suitcase once we were checked in. It was HOT and I was still in work clothes.
The check in was smooth. We were waited on as soon as we entered. The young man from Australia was kind and knowledgeable and gave a good natured laugh or two. He did make sure to tell us that there would be fireworks over Typhoon Lagoon about midnight as there was a special party there. "Yep," I said, "That's where the boys are tonight." He did give me an odd look, but was well trained.
Our drinks at The Suitcase totaled $18.00 for two "Buds" and one Sprite. There were problems with the kegs and the beer kept coming up foamy. We spent about 30 minutes enjoying our drinks and watching the barkeep get more and more frustrated with the situation.
We are on the second floor. That's always fun to lug all your things, eh? The villa is very nice and no problems. The boy was beyond excited when he saw the huge bedroom he and his Da would be sharing. They have the two doubles in there and he thought that was just great.
Not sure what the "boys" are doing today. We are headed, of course to MK if only for a few hours. I'm not wearing red this year, it's simply TOO HOT. I have a new plain white shirt and will drop a strand of red "beads for life" around my neck and call it good. The boys may be going to DHS. The little one has his Jedi Costume all ready to go. We didn't have the heart to tell him he's going to melt if he tries to wear all that regalia, but no matter. Kids are resilient, no?
We stayed in our villa last night (ah, the joys of being a repeat visitor!) and thoroughly enjoyed the supper Herself had packed for us. (I had to work yesterday, but she was off). We had roasted turkey, mash, green beans, stuffing and corn on the cob. Quite a feast, no? She packed quite a bit of food and we'll probably do most of our eating from those supplies. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, we just aren't happy with Disney food much anymore so prefer to have our own with us. We'll snack here and there, though.
Not sure how the weekend will play out. We check out Monday, so have a full weekend here.
Will keep you posted and may try to get some photos. We have the huge camera, but it's so heavy I know Herself will not want to carry it into the park.
Thank heaven for cell phone cameras, yes?
Take care now. I'm up too early so am off to have another cup of coffee.
Oh, if anyone has any questions, let me know. I'll do my best to answer.
