    DVC Hilton Head question

    That sounds promising. Enjoy your vacation!

    DVC Hilton Head question

    I don’t see why not. Even if they didn’t let you pull your car in you could park at the stores/marina that are right in front of it and you could walk in. Keep in mind they have a beach house that is probably about a mile from the resort. It’s doubtful you could gain access to that. You may be able to walk through to the beach but I seem to remember you needed your key card (probably magic band now) to get in to the actual building and pool area. We’ve been there once and really liked it. Have wanted to return but just haven’t made it back yet. Edited to add: I just looked back to find a quick overview I posted about it back in 2012. Can’t believe it’s been that long. If you’re interested it’s here:

    Disneyland, California west coast

    Definitely plan a year in advance, especially if you plan on staying in any of the National Parks. We had to book exactly a year in advance to reserve a tent cabin on the Yosemite Valley floor. Also if you may be renting a car with a different drop off location we found the earlier the better, and look for a company with no drop off fee. We reserved a Ford Expedition pick up in LA, drop off in SF, we paid around $700 for 12 days. As the months went on that price climbed to over $2000!

    Disneyland, California west coast

    We flew into LA, spent a couple of days at Disneyland plus a day for Hollywood/Warner Bros tour. Then we drove inland, first to Sequoia/King’s Canyon which was beautiful. Then we headed north to Yosemite which was phenomenal. Those national parks were places I will never forget. From Yosemite we drove over to San Francisco. We made our base in Half Moon Bay, just south of SF and from there did day trips to SF, Monterey, 17-mile drive, going down the coast as far as Big Sur. We flew home from San Francisco. Our trip was 12 days total, us and the three kids in a Ford Expedition. I honestly felt the drives were manageable and we didn’t overdue it. True, we didn’t really get to do anything in depth but we were able to experience the huge variety that California has to offer.

    Ceci n'est pas une Trip Report

    I’m enjoying your trip report. Love the tea pictures, we go almost every trip and just managed to get a reservation for our trip next month.

    Tent camping in July with Family!

    Just read your report, really enjoyed it. I had to laugh as it went on, as each time Sinead’s name came up I started rolling my eyes. I mean, she had to have some idea what it would be like tent camping. In July. In Florida. Hope you got some peace once she moved.

    GDF Visits the Dark Side

    Joining in! I haven’t been to Universal in probably 25 years. But every time we’ve offered to do a Universal trip the kids have opted to do Disney (again!). Maybe your trip report will help me convince them.
  8. I’m late to the party but I just have to comment that it’s nice to see you got a pedicure for your classic hammock shot.
  9. Finally logged on to read the rest of your report. Looks like a fun year, hope 2018 is even better!
  10. You might be right on that because we did get it with the sandwiches and desserts. Usually they're pretty accommodating, they wouldn't let you order just the cheese plate?
  11. Hope you're feeling better soon.
  12. My kids were there on the 16th too! We had taken them when they were little girls and now as young adults they love it even more. My husband and I were there earlier this month and we got a fruit and cheese plate in addition to the offerings above. It was delicious. Oh, and it was on the menu.

    Trader Sams Question

    We were there for the first time last week and loved it. Just my husband and I went while the kids were at the MK. We told them how much fun we had and the next night they went without us! We noticed they did make an announcement just before 8:00 that all under 21 would have to leave.
  14. So I'm trying to catch up since getting back from WDW. But I just read your post about Raglan Road and you asked if anyone had been there recently. Well we were, last Tuesday! We had never been before but we went with some friends who were also down there and they go just about every trip. I had the salmon, DH had the chicken pot pie and we were both very pleased with our meal. When it came time for dessert, which we don't normally order, our friends said "We're all getting the bread pudding. There is no other choice, that's what you're getting." So DH and I split one and we both thought it was delicious. Of course it was our first time so I can't compare but our friends seemed happy with it and they always get it. Just my two cents.
  15. I missed it too! But I miss everything, lol. As far as the dachshund/captain, I didn't see that coming. Are you sure you weren't on some hidden camera show?
