Thank you!! Yes--there is a different feel to both. I feel like French Quarter has more of a "party type" atmosphere than Riverside.I know Kelly has been following along closely but I'm late to the party. Great report so far! Love the photos of the Riverside area that you walk around. I know when we stayed in the French Quarter last year, I really enjoyed running through Riverside in the mornings. Such different feel to both resorts.
And thanks for the great pics of Wilderness Lodge. Easily my favourite resort on property and the place we are staying in January for Marathon Weekend.
Looking forward to reading more!
You, J and E... got it
Very much so.
Welcome! Better late than never!! It very well could be. I know his favorite is the Camaro so maybe I just assumed that's what it is?? I know absolutely nothing about cars esp. sporty ones. Heck, I drive a Honda Pilot if that tells you anything about me.I'm in. . .LATE! Taking notes. . . As a side note, that little red car looks a lot like a Mustang, not a Camaro.
Thank you!! He is a trip!!Your little guy is just adorable in his camaro hat! So cute!
I'm so confused... What was he going to do, grab some kindling from the brush and cook it on a stick right there!FRIDAY, JUNE 21ST
We headed out at 6 for our morning walk. C joined us since her family moved to POR the day before. See the bridge? Since it was still normally a bit dark when we would be near it we would see bats flying around there. C totally freaked out & after this day we had to do a different route so we didn't run into them anymore. Can't say I blame her--I don't care for the swooping around me either. Her fear is that one will get caught in her hair.

I was completely appalled to see this. That guy was fishing! They have a fishing hole there but it's nowhere in the area he is in. I think he was just trying to sneak in some casts while there weren't many people out. That's just wrong though. I have stayed at POR many times & this was the first time I ever saw someone step foot on the grass. Shame on him!! @Zipitidoda I didn't feel so funny taking this one since I was quite a bit away from him.
You should have told R to let it goFRIDAY, JUNE 21ST
At this point we were ready for lunch so we headed back to WS. C's family had a FP for Soarin so we were going to meet back up with them in a bit.

While we were eating I about fainted & it wasn't from the heat. It was a bird!! I am petrified of birds if they are indoors. They always seem so panicked & I'm sure it's b/c they are scared themselves but they really scare me. It flew right by me while we were eating then had the nerve to hang out right by us.

I got a good laugh b/c of this woman. It must have been her first meal in a Disney park ever. She couldn't figure out how to get the fork out of the dispenser. Finally, she got it open(as one would if they were filling it) & took one out!!

We had a FP for Frozen next. What a disaster that turned out to be. The whole way there J kept whining. All he did was repeat, "I don't want to ride Frozen." As we're in the FP line he really started carrying on so E got out of line with him. I felt bad for her. She ends up not going on quite a few things b/c he's deciding more & more that he's afraid of things.

R was a bit irritated that they put all 4 of us in one row. I knew it would be a bit tight but I didn't want to agree with him b/c it would make him feel justified in being irritated & he'd be in a bad mood then. I told him to get over it & that B & L are skinny so it wouldn't be that bad.

Wait what? I'm not sure even a printed family tree would help me here. LolI have a more confusing family situation for you. Briefly: two of my Grandma's aunts (on her father's side) married brothers and 2 of my Grandma's sisters married brothers that were the sons of the 3rd brother that was the brother in law to their aunts. But Grandma married a 1st cousin (also on her fathers side) that she didn't grow up with. Grandma had another sister that married the brother to the husband that was married to her cousin/SIL. It gets even more confusing but you would need a printed family tree to understand it all LOL.

That is so neat!! I don't think of it as a boy name at all. Actually, I remember when I first started reading your TR's thinking to myself what a pretty name it is!!That’s like our Lennon. My dad was born in England and was the biggest Beatles fan. He even has life size cardboard cutouts of them. When he passed away, we knew right away that a great way to honour him was to name her after his favourite band. Although she thinks it’s a boy names and prefers to be called Lenny, I’m sure she will appreciate it when she’s older.
Agreed!I think Lennon is a beautiful first name - it is unique but not “out there”. I hope she appreciates it as she gets older. And what a great way to honor your father too.
