Re: My birthday party - B&tB

Happy Birthday!  Your sister-in-law and niece are very talented, such a wonderful cake and atmosphere they created.

I was wondering why the footy was on during the party.  I'm not up on different codes and teams enough to notice what it was, glad they gave you a good game for your birthday.

Welcome!  Living in Brissy I find this page great for keeping up with other Disney fans and goings on in the parks and movies.  You should go to the meetings if you can - lots of fun and great people - enjoy :)

Re: Greg's May 2017 visit

My sister was originally going to do Shanghai and Hong Kong Disney parks but chose Tokyo because of Disneysea and how different it is.  Looking forward to that.

Re: 2018 Club Trip

But don't let the motion put you off doing a future cruise - and if motion is a problem, try the Alaskan cruise someday Thanks Keith, Alaska is somewhere I'd definitely do a cruise someday.  My sister are both up for a Disney cruise of Alaska but not for a few years we all have other plans for the ...

Re: 2018 Club Trip

The townhouse will always need work but how often will this opportunity arise?  Greg Haha, I can see rust on my roof, my stove is starting to play up, my blinds don't work and the front door needs a good hit at the top to close.  It's not so much doing cute stuff, more I've let it run down while I ...

Re: On or off site

We booked the room on Hotels.com however I'm sure there's ways to book both together.  My sister booked that part of the trip and I just showed up.  I can't comment on getting around, we stayed at Universal for a night on arrival and did a full day at the park before catching a taxi to WDW at night,...

Re: Greg's May 2017 visit

Don't shortchange Tokyo though, it's an amazing city, easy to get around, lots of great food and sights. Greg We're staying 2 days in Tokyo and 4 in Osaka (incl Kyoto, Nara and Universal).  It'll be a good intro to Japan for me and I have no doubt I'll be going back for a proper tour to see more of...

Re: 2018 Club Trip

I'll need to see what Japan ends up costing, plus I need to do some work on my townhouse :(

I can imagine the cruise would be lots of fun with the usual on-board activities as well as any additional club ones.  I'll what life brings in the next 6mths.

Re: On or off site

It was super easy as there is are clear signs and buses go to each park separately so you're not making multiple stops.  Of the 6 days we were there, only once did a bus make another stop and that was to a water park.  Buses are frequent going to and from the parks and I don't remember waiting long ...

Re: Greg's May 2017 visit

Tokyo is the one I'd like to go back to (after WDW) because I only had the one day there and don't think I did it justice. Greg I did notice your list of preferences and I agree with WDW, DL, then PDL as that's my order for the 3 I've done.  Was pleased to see TDL in second on your list and I remem...

Fantastic Lauren!  You were hoping to get to a park this year, great to hear you'll make it.

Re: 2018 Club Trip

I'll need to think about this as the cruise is longer than I'd like considering I've never done one and am not always great on boats, plus the cost may be out of my league considering my month long trip to the US earlier this year and not quite 2wks in Japan coming up in Oct/Nov.  I realise rooms ma...

Re: On or off site

I loved Art of Animation and so easy to get around with the buses, plus get shopping sent back to the room - however we kept forgetting so only did this once and that's probably not a selling point for you.  I've never stayed off site so can't compare.  To be honest considering how long we were in t...

Re: Greg's May 2017 visit

Looks amazing Greg!  I've been busy the past few weeks and trying to catch up now on everything I've missed.  Love the photos and certainly will get there one day, Tokyo this year though.  Now I need to go back to the trip report and catch up there.....
