Hey Scratch!
Glad to hear you're back and had a great time! I was interested in seeing that you enjoyed Happy Limo! There were a number of complaints about them during the hurricanes on the boards so I was glad that you didn't have any problems.

Can't wait for your trip report!

Welcome back Janet! How was Richard Petty's? DBF wanted to try it back in Sept/Oct but we couldn't find the time to fit it in our schedule. What was the GF like? I'm guessing you weren't impressed...

Welcome Home! See we saved the nice weather for you!

Glad you have some great experiences! Know what you mean about Tony's we loved breakfast there, but dinner/lunch is not in the same league!

Ps. Booked the Dec 06 Double Dip, sounds like fun and 4 months after your panama, so just about time for your next trip, lol.

I was also worried about Happy Limo but then thought it's booked we'll wait and see! Put it this way, No More Disney Transfers for us! They went above and beyond for us! More explaination to come during Trip Report

Richard Petty ~ Do find the time! Yes, it is an all afternoon experience but well worth the Adreneline Rush! Also, make sure you practice your Shifting!LOL More to come!

Ok, GF, looks nice on the outside but........Let's just say for a Deluxe not impressed with how thin the walls are or !LOL

Welcome back Janet! What's up with Tony's? We made ps ressies for this Friday night since that should be our carb-loading night for Sunday's race. I'm really hoping that for $18.50 I get lots of spaghetti with my meal ... I don't care about the meatballs ... just lots and lots of pasta. Are we going to be disappointed? There are 9 of us going.

Thanks!

Oh you will get lots and lots and lots of pasta! But unfortunately, I don't like their sauce! I for one do not think opening up a jar of pasta sauce without adding a few extra seasonings makes for an acceptable sauce. No Basil, No Garlic, No Onion = NO TASTE! Also, they did not do a very good job of draining the pasta, still watery tasting! Even Tanya traded for my Baked Ziti but was lucky for me cause that meat sauce reminded me of Dog Food (colour and texture)!LOL Sorry but this used to be one of our Fav Places to eat and also the fact that the dipping sauce is no longer available during lunch hours...........

Let's just say Tony's is no longer a Magical Place to eat anymore!

Save your Money and go to local Grocery Store and Buy your Pasta and make it yourself! Spend what you save on Mickey Bars and Dole Whips!

I even told them to fire their new Chef!

Welcome back!!

This is where you get to, in my case, drive a NASCAR! They also have the ride along program! It's for persons 16 and older!

When you are entering MK, you will notice a race car track on the left hand side. This is where you do these things. It's mostly guys that do the driving but..... :moped: :moped: :earboy2:

Oh well.... something to look forward to in years to come!!

Plus you will need that long to save up for it!LOL I was lucky to get a great deal thanks to the DISboards!

What I did usually runs $350.00 US! I got it for $199.00! But well worth the price of admission!

Welcome home Scratch! I look forward to your trip report.

I also thought of you a couple of times when we were up in Canada for Xmas. I used my Disney Visa, and each time the clerk said, "Wow look at this, I haven't seen one of these" One clerk even asked if she could show her Manager! I smiled and thought about how much fun you would be having using yours......if only....... :sad2:

Anyway, glad you had a great trip!

Welsome back

Vouchers, FOOD how many do you have and for breakfast?
Looking to use some for our CRT in Feb. Have 2 adults and 3 kids going. Can't find them here and no one knows how to get them without signing up for them and paying out alot to get them.

Ok, I've started to organize my thoughts for the TP and have come up with my title!LOL

As for the Vouchers, I only have the VKL ones left.

If you are interested, pm me.

'Cause if they don't sell, you will be forcing me into another trip before they expire!LOL

Janet, you shouldn't have a problem getting rid of them...apparently the buzz is that vouchers are being discontinued because of MYW, if you don't get any takers here (hint,hint...Cdn's read between the lines :smooth: ) there are others on the BB that are looking for them.

barb45
01-07-2005, 04:07 PM
Why would they do away with the vouchers because of MYW tickets?? Where can we look this rumor up? I always seem to be looking for more info, more info, more info...... I could drive myself nuts!!

MaMudduck
01-07-2005, 06:13 PM
I asked the exact question myself, I really hope this is an unfounded rumor
There are quite a few posts on the budget board. It appears that they have run out of Q&C and KVL ( or whatever the letter are??) at Hotwire/Connections/Simple Escapes and they've taken them off their website (Also PHP too), so the "buzz" is that they might not continue after these vouchers expire in May 2005. Again this is been a rumor and nobody has confirmed this yet.

Scratch42
01-08-2005, 07:43 AM
Geez, I hope they don't discontinue them.

I guess we never eat at Le Cellier again! With Vouchers, did not mind paying the voucher price but their real price! I don't think so!

Time will tell.

The Dining Card they are now offering to AP holders still does not do it for me. But still sitting on the fence with that one.

I have added a quick review here but definately worth at least one try!

The food was superb! I was happy that I also did the wine pairing, definately added to the experience. Alas, it will be a while before I can afford to eat here again! But when I can, I want to try the Chef's Table next! Would love to see them create the dishes!
