I’m so excited for this TR! I’m sure it’s going to make me homesick though and push my over the ledge of planning the DLR trip DD keeps trying to get me to plan!

Have all the fun and eat a Monte Cristo for me!

Oh awesome, I’m excited to see a TR with an off-site hotel and beach day! Are you switching hotels because of your nerd event?

My dad is paying for the hotel at Newport. He is a Marriott VC member and rents a handful of units every few years so my entire family can get together there. I’m staying at the Courtyard so I can be close to Celebration (and Disney!) for the two extra days that I am there before the rest of my family arrives!

Excited for another Jeff_AZ family report! Just so I have my characters straight, is this going to be the same DBIL that had a recurring role in the May report or a new guest star?

Is there something wrong with this?

Other than living in FL and I go to a park about once a week? No nothing wrong :grin:
