It was great. You're inside the resort, so you get the extra hours in the parks. The buses ran often to all of them (always took 2 to get from your campsite to the parks), and you could take the boat to the Magic Kingdom.

We planned too much around the parks, and I am worn out. In the future, we're gonna have a rule that we will not do more than 2 days in a row in the parks. There is plenty to do at the CG on a "down" day to keep everyone busy. There are several pools, stores (stores sell beer, wine, even liquor - mini-bottles and regular size), tennis courts, horse rentals, boat rentals, restaurants, shows at night, big screen movies in the outdoors, plus lots more I'm sure I'm leaving out. The sites are very far apart from your neighbor, but it's kind of swampy between them. No bugs, though - they have that under control. Plenty of asphalt to park on, plus a sand area behind that to put a tent. Now for some reason, they put the electric behind the sand - so you better bring an extension for that hookup. Water and sewer were in a normal location. Bathrooms, showers, laundry, and ice in each loop - and very clean. As many people as there were in the CG, it was quiet.

Like I said - you could stay at the Contemporary, Polynesian, or Grand Floridian to be closer and have a monorail come through, but you're going to start at $400/night. I've only stayed at two other CG's that were not a federal or state park, so I'm usually not impressed with any amenities, but this was different. We will be back

Wow! Thanks happiestcamper. I want to pack up and go now. It sounds like a great place. I would love to drive down there with our trailer and spend a week or two but for now we are stuck here in our winter wonderland. Maybe in a couple of years we'll get a chance to get down there. Thanks for the info. I really hope I can get a chance to get down there.

l2l how was the trailer? Next time you come up my way stop by my place for a cold beer. That is if you have the time. As for the champ, (which I think you can still listen too on line) I think it's Andy Frost. The same guy that does the announcements at the ACC. By the way, my company (Atec Signs) is building the new time clock for the ACC. We'll have it installed before the puck drops next season.
Anyway I hope the trailer is ok.

Shane

Antigua, trailer seemed ok but still snowed in...

I thought of you as I drove up the Orangeville by-pass, next time I head up that way I will shoot you a PM and I will stop by.

Got the quote yesterday to fix everything - $1,352

Yeah, last night in the dark as I was backing past the house, I thought I just got tangled up with a boxwood. Turns out there was a garden hose in the bush which got wrapped up in the sewer connection. Today in the daylight found pieces of it all the way through the side yard. The black water tank will definitely need to be replaced - maybe they can leave the gray water tank there and run a new line for the drain. Speaking of drains, my money just keeps going down it this trip

Hope everybody else's trip is going well

At least I had the opportunity the past few days to look at replacements, in case the the cost to fix was too high. Now I'm kind of disappointed that I won't be getting a new one

Definitely. It's kind of like a wife, can't imagine life without her - though there is the fantasy when I see a Class A or Kim Basinger

After two months in the shop, it finally came home. Came in $200 under estimate.

Only complaint (besides the amount of time it took) is the first thing they did was fix the fridge, let it get cold, then turned it off and left the door closed. Nice layer of mold I'll need to clean out of it

Oh man that sucks happiest. Get some Tilex mold and mildew cleaner. It works great for cleaning refrigerators and freezers and anywhere else that gets moldy. It doesnt have to be just for bathrooms, I have used it, works better than anything else I have found so far.

Glad they got it fixed though, and under estimate, how often does that happen

This is off what the last page topic is, but on what the thread topic is...with the LP on for fridges, seems a little strange to me. I didn't read the 2nd page, so if this has been asked already, forgive me.

Does everyone not have 3-way fridges, that are powered by your tow vehicle when hooked up for towing? Mine does ('08 28 foot Dutchmen Aristocrat), and it's a dream! Only need gas for Hot Water, and when I don't have electrical at a site.

Just a thought.

Thanks!

Mine too! no 12v. I wish it did though. My old popup's had the 12v and we used it all the time.
