What a great trip report! Thanks for taking the time to share it with us. TRs are what get rest of us through until our next trip to WDW!

Was the beer flight actually $85? Gad ouch on the old
Pocketbook.

Think it may have been $75 - I went and checked the website and that is what it says. We got that, 2 of the $47 drinks (keep the glass) and another regular beer. Total with tip was $240.49 (we tipped I think $40). That was us saving money by not doing the light sabers! Ha ha ha

We said the same thing about the droids... we now own 2. They are quite fun too. We have been rolling them around the house and the dogs follow them curiously. When we put them "up" on the fireplace hearth, one of the dogs checks on them regularly. We got the BB series as the CM told us that droid tends to do better on rough or uneven surfaces (think carpet).

Here are all of the drinks at Oga’s Cantina.

The beer flight is super cool and they even have a drink that makes your mouth numb. Will try that one next time.

Which was the numbing one? I didn't notice that.

We got a couple drinks for the souvenir cups as many will, but just a note to those navigating the drink menu otherwise.

The Outer Rim (margarita) was pretty solid and a normally overpriced drink due to no extra cup.

My 4 year old son had the Hyperdrive juice drink ($6) and really enjoyed it. He's not very adventurous so if you're going with kids it's pretty safe. They put a blackish syrup at the top of other juice and let it mix down, so the visual may bother some kids who demand consistency.

Catching up on your great TR! Those BB units look great!! I"m hoping I can convince DH to make one, or take DS into make one. Glad to hear good stuff about Oga's.
Love ALL the pictures. Great parade and Safari pics. I've never seen the giraffes sitting around like that.
Good to hear all the good stuff about SSR. We are still debating where to stay for our second week next June. First week will be at BWV, and SSr is at the top of DH's list for the second week, because of DS access so close.
Thanks again for sharing all the fun!!

Buses at otehr resorts like PVB and BLT are SLOW coming. I bet that is due to the fact we have so many other choices. At SSR, I felt like we rarely waited more than 10-15 min for a bus.

So yeah, we totally now would be open to SSR stays, whereas before we were not. I guess it proves, don't judge anything until you've experienced it. Now to just fight off that addonitis...
Yup, we had addonitis after staying at SSR on a last minute trip. Came home and added SSR points. My biggest regret was wish we had more points there.

Fuzzy Tauntaun ($15.00) with Cîroc Peach Vodka, Bols Peach Schnapps, and Simply Orange® topped with tangerine and pure cane sugar… oh, and some “Buzzz” Foam!

The Buzz Foam is what makes your mouth tingle...
