another 3-night bahamas cruise with the mouse
08.25.2009 - 08.30.2009
I can't believe it's almost a year later and I've finally remembered that I needed to do this trip report. Anyway, I'll write what I remember since it's been so long!
August 25, 2010 - we drove down to Orlando and stayed for a couple of nights at the DVC resort Saratoga Springs. The only way I afforded this was to rent a DVC owner's points, via the http://www.disboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=29 DISboards DVC points rent/transfer forum. The resort was beautiful and conveniently located. It was a weird stay though, b/c it's the first time we've stayed in Orlando and not gone to any of the Disney parks.
Our hotel room - kind of small but nice and had a balcony too:
You can see from our balcony the Treehouse Villas which were recently renovated and put back into use.
August 26, 2010 - spending the day in Orlando, about to hit the outlet mall! We also went to Downtown Disney and walked around, shopped, etc. then ate dinner at T-Rex which is like a Rainforest Cafe, but dinosaur themed.
August 27, 2010 ~ drove to Port Canaveral, it only took about an hour from Orlando. We checked in at the Disney terminal and after a short wait, we got to board. We ate lunch and waited to go to our rooms. We had to do the lifeboat drill and other stuff too. Here are some pics, I will add more information later I promise!!!
