This is my first draft for our planning of our first of 5 visits to WDW in 2013. Yes I am a horrible planner... and I did not even get my first ADR until today.

So left DTD and realized only 5 min from PORS time to try the magic cookie bar....!!!! So we went up to the gate and the CM said "Checking in" and I said not til tomorrow... Just want to come in for lunch and try a magic cookie bar.... His response come on in we get that all the time! So we showed our ID and came on in. I forgot how beautiful POR is. We have not stayed there in several years. It was a magical moment.... I remember pushing the triple stroller over that bridge... Before Nick was born. Beautiful resort... On we went to the food court ordered a Large Pizza and Magic Cookie bars... Not everyone was hungry. Pizza was good MCB was great!!! Worth the trip over!!!! Then we had an unforgettable moment my DH realized he forgot to pack Mine and my DD Suitcase !!!!! Oh crap!!!!! To be continued.............

So we met up with the Boys at Epcot.. Nick was so excited.... Habit Heros has re opened!!!! It's all he could talk about! When we met up with the boys they where hungry so we decided to walk over to Beach club and hit Beaches and Cream for dinner... On our way over we went and saw our favorite cast member from BC Raulph in Recreation... It was good to see him he was as kind as ever... We then went by the gift shop... I wanted to see if BC had the magic cookie bar.... Well... No! BUT they had the Coconut Bar... Wow. I think I like that when even more tasted like an Almond Joy... Good stuff! So now that our appetite was ruined we finally made it to b&c... We love Beaches and Cream the girls get Burgers and the girls and I get the Grilled Cheese and Tomtoe Bisque... Good Stuff! :) great as usual our server Kimmy was amazing. Our only disapountment was we tried the Bannana bread/Peanut Butter Carmel Sundae... Not as good as good as it sounded... But that's ok will go back to the Brownie Sundae next time.... Finished up and now headed to our home for the night...

So as most of you know today was a bonus day... My daughters school schedule changed so we wanted to go ahead and drive down so my DH could rest before our real vacation started on Friday at BW. So finding a Hotel to my spoiled standards was hard. Decided to look past Celebration instead of Orlando. We ended up at Hampton Inn in Davenport.. About 4 miles and includes Breakfast.. Ran about 100 bucks. I am very impressed so far. Friendly, clean, will do for tonight. It's 10:40 kids are asleep.... DH is snoring... I know it was a crazy day...the suitcase thing was hard.... But all is good! Going to be a great vacation...

Sounds like the start to a great trip. Personally, we don't go when it is that crowded, but then we don't have children so I don't know what it is like to have school schedules to consider.
I think if we did have kids, we would have to have a Kitchen Sink while at Beaches and Cream...

You know we used to... AND even with 6 of us it still turns into a soupy mess before we are half way done.... The truth is the kids don't even ask for them anymore.. :)
