thank you thank you thank you!!!

We owe one HUGE THANK YOU to Miss Shirley & her team! As I posted before, I ordered 4 baskets (2 for the kids, 1 for DH & 1 for sis/sil) and as it turns out DH ordered 1 for me-so 5 total. Well, our airline messed up & we missed the boat!!!

DH called Shirley & she pulled some awesome strings because all 5 of our baskets were waiting in our WDW rooms when we arrived!! (We made alternate WDW reservations when we knew we would miss the boat)

The customer service they provided us was superb & simply unheard of these days! The baskets were great too-plenty of snacks & kid friendly items (not all useful in WDW but perfect for the cruise). I ordered drink bottles for all of us for the drink station, they were great for the parks but were not as big as would have liked if we were on the boat. That being said, the contents were much appreciated & everyone was thrilled to get them!

WAY TO GO SHIRLEY & TEAM!!! You sure got life long customers in us!!!

Cathy

ours is not for a while yet - but does Shirley have any Marie (from Aristocats) stuff? My eldest just loves her, and she is pretty hard to find.

I just called Shirley yesterday to order my baskets! I got 1 for my DD and 1 for her friend who's family is traveling with us. They are going to be so excited when they see the baskets in the rooms.

I ordered a:

Purple bucket with sand toys filled with sour patch kids, twizzlers, M&M’s, chocolate covered cookie dough, skittles, cheetos, flashing pirate necklaces, bottled water, glow sticks, and pirate tattoos

Red bucket with sand toys filled with reeses peanut butter bites, kit kats, hersheys bars, sour patch kids, doritos, flashing pirate necklaces, bottled water, glow sticks, and pirate tattoos

I had thought about putting in a stuffed animal in each basket, but we are going to Disney World before the cruise, and I figure each girl will probably pick out their own toy there.

Thanks Shirley so much for the helpful suggestions!
