Have you ever ridden in up with captain? You just have to ask the cast members if you can help steer the ship. They allow one family up there per trip, you get to sign the captains log and they used to give out a certificate. It's a fantastic view of the park and you get to chat with the captain. Of course when my kids were little they would actually "steer the ship" and "push the button that would kick the guy downstairs to tell him to do his speach" and they would get to ring the bell.

I know how you feel! I haven't done the Riverboat in ages!

We just tend to skip over it. I honestly can't remember the last time we did it!

Thanks for doing the food review as well! I just love food porn!
Food is my favorite thing to write about! I've seen the Dapper Dans out, but I've never really stopped and listened.

Something tells me that my brother did that years ago...but I could be mixing that up with another memory

Thanks! I think he's super adorable! I've gotten a lot of PINs this year, and I wasn't really planning on going, so it was driving me crazy! Absolutely love F&W, totally worth it if you can go!

And just for good measure, another puppy picture

Remember the store at DTD that had nothing but Pet stuff? I tried looking for something for "a puppy" (didn't know what we'd get yet) last month when I was down for my brother's graduation, but I didn't find anything!

Yes, I remember it. They've moved it to the "Pooh & Hunny" store in a corner. They carry a line of dog stuff at the Emporium and also at MouseGears.

Thanks! Now I know where to look Speaking of pups, he's currently passed out on the floor as I watch the end of the Hockey game. Every now and then he pops his head up, checks that I'm still there, then goes right back to sleep. TOO CUTE!

I totally think your puppy and my Wendy need to be internet boyfriend and girlfriend.

I'd be worried that since Wendy is older than Bandit, she'd be a cougar...wouldn't that cause some serious identity crisis?!

Hey! I tagged along on a PTR or TR in the past with you...and you followed some of mine...I fell off the face of the earth, as I do from time to time when in a Disney Depression...but I'm back (for the time being)!

Annndd..going on the exact same dates as you, the 2-9th! So far your PTR has been super helpful to me... since we're going at the same times, maybe i'll just do exactly what you do. You can take care of the hard stuff for me!
Disney trip, and I gained weight back while at Disney, but only 2 lbs! All the walking is so good and burns so many calories. While at Disney, I don't count points. I just ate really really well up until I got there. Just a sidenote- Weight Watchers keeps you away from greasy food...you will have a few rummblies in your tummy if you eat tons of greasy food when you get there..i learned the hard way last year!

I'm going to attempt to keep up with your PTR!!

Welcome back! I remember you How exciting that you're going at the same time!

I know what you mean about greasy foods...a few years ago when I was in school, I realized I was eating a lot of chicken fingers for lunch, so I decided to cut out all fried foods. Then I went and had some like a month later and I got sooooo sick to my stomach! Ugh, thanks for the reminder though, I forgot all about that!

I'm so anxious for tomorrow. I heard somewhere...though I can't remember where, so my brain could be making this up...that the F&W info will be updated tomorrow!

Plus, Southwest is due to release their fares for December! I'm looking for a cheap flight, right now it's AirTran down (at 5:46 out of Rochester, so I could work that day and head to the airport immediately!) and JetBlue back. But sometimes Southwest makes it worth it to drive to Buffalo for the flight. So I'm waiting to see what happens!

Oh, and I booked breakfast at Kouzzina for my December trip. I've read some mixed reviews though, so I'm not sure I'm going to keep it.
