One of the girls favorite memories of Disney is the pool at the hotel. Crazy hunh?
It WAS an amazing pool. I would love to go stay a couple of extra days and not buy tickets for the parks those days and just hang out at the pool all day!
This pool had numerous pools and this was just the main pool. There were also other small pools all around the hotel. CRAZY!
Anyway the main pool area had a VERY LARGE slide, a small slide, a lazy river pool, hot tubs, an area that we called the toilet bowl bc it spun you round and round like in a toilet bowl pretty fast, tons of just hang out pool areas and then the kids favorite the BEACH pool. The pool was a beach entry and the whole thing had sand on the bottom. It was only 2 feet max! It was PERFECT! My memory card ran out of memory so I had to use my little camera so sorry these aren't the greatest of pics!

This was the little kids slide as my girls called it. They loved it, but could see the BIG slide above our heads. It was a HUGE ship that was shipwrecked. The girls kept asking to go down it so the lifegaurd told us to go get life jackets and let them go down it. I was a little nervous bc they had to go down by themselves. It had a tube that was 75-100 ft. long and then you go through a whole bunch of twists and turns, with waterfalls falling on you and you go FAST! You had to go up a spiral staircase to get to it.

Here is the end of the BIG slide. THe first time they came down I just knew they were going to say never again. Brian went down then each of the girls went down and then I came down. When I came down they were screaming "Can we do it again???" They loved it and did it OVER AND OVER!!!!

If you love swimming and pools the Beach Club is the way to go! FYI if you stay at ANY disney resort you can use the Beach Club pool after 5 PM! :)

The beach club...

We stayed at the Beach Club Villas while we were there, and absolutely LOVED it. I WISH I would have taken more pictures of the pool. It was UNBELIEVABLE! Here are a few pics of the girls on the grounds of the hotel....

Breakfast at Cape May Cafe

The next morning we ate at Cape May Cafe. It was the restaurant at our hotel the beach club. This was one of our faorites on meeting the characters. Maybe because we weren't rushed to get there and we DEFINITELY were not rushed during our meal. (WHich most of them you feel very rushed!)
Minnie brought out cupcakes and sang happy birthday to celebrate the girls 4th birthday!

Goofy was sooo cute with the girls.

Coral Reef

That night we went to Coral Reef. It was really a neat place. You table faces a wall that is a HUGE fish tank. The whole wall is a wall of glass. There are scbua divers that swim by, and they even give you a paper with all the names of the fish. Amelia spent the ENTIRE meal asking Brian what kind of fish is that? I had a sinus/allergy attack that night so I wasn't feeling the greatest. I did get a few pics with our little camera....

Abigail wanted a fancy drink like mine so she asked for my lime...she did this with it!

WE rode the nemo ride after dinner...super cute!

Had to take a pic of this as we were walking to dinner.


After we went to Chef Mickey we headed to MGM. I don't know why but I took hardly any pictures while we were there. We went to a million inside shows so that is probably why. This was also one of the hotest days while we were there.

The girls REALLY loved Beauty and the Beast show and the Ariel show! AMAZING!!!

Day Three...Chef Mickey...

On the third day we started out with Chef Mickey. We got there early and had to wait so we went and played in the store that is in the hotel.

Abigail LOVED this and was ready to bring it home, but she didn't quite have enough Disney Dollars!

Posing like the princesses taught her to do!

Waiting with Daddy!

My minnie!

Abigail and her Daddy!

We hadn't met any of the "characters" before this meal. Only the princesses. They were SOOOO excited to meet Mickey and all his friends. I was REALLY suprised how much they loved seeing them! This smile tells it all!

Laughing at goofy!

I LOVE Abigail's face in this one.

ALL smiles!

YUMMY breakfast!

Check out Amelia's face!

Oh I want to frame this picture. I can't remember what secret she was telling, but I just love this picture of her!

Being silly with Pluto!


The whole family with Minnie....
Chef Mickey was fun and the food was good. If you make reservations make them EARLY for this one! It's one of the hardest to get into!
