So How DID We get this Trip Report Title......finally!

I took off from OMD as quickly as possible and ran into the closet dump shop - the one right outside of Mermaid. I quickly asked the CM if she had any memory cards, and if not, where could I find one. She directed me to the photo shop. I had no idea HS had a photoshop, but I had no trouble finding it.

I queued up behind another gentlemen who was also in need of a memory card. However, the cast member had to give him pretty detailed instructions on how to actually use it. OOOOO Kay!

I bought a 4 gb memory card (the largest they had). I don't remember exactly what I paid for it, but it wasn't a giant rip-off. Good to know in case I ever need one again. I still was in disbelief that I filled up an entire 8 gb card.

Once out on the street I had about 3 minutes to kill until ADR time. I decided to check my camera on this guy.



HI - sterical!

He was giving this gentlemen on the scooter a parking ticket!



Too funny! But I looked at my phone and it was officially time for our lunch ADR.

And where was that ADR - well at a DIS board favorite:

I'm sure this is enough of a hint!





We had a cool table - one of those retro half mooned shaped tables. And with it came this fine young man!



Check him out! Tracy and Christine requested a champagne flight and he was happy to oblige. He even asked if the rest of us would like to fly the friendly skies.

The first pour



The final pours



He then reminded the ladies to buckle up for take off. We all laughed and he replied he, "Well - How DO you think we stay so happy?" "It's not really the Disney magic like everyone thinks!"



OMG - We were officially rolling! His delivery was perfect and, while Cynthia and I did not fly the friendly skies, we did have some lovely wine. Again - the name escapes me, but it was probably my favorite wine of the trip.

It's shocking that I didn't take a picture of that happy little glass, but I did take a picture of this baby.


Blue Lump Crab Cake - with Potato Crust, Green Cabbage Slaw, Cognac-Mustard Sauce, and Rémoulade $12.00


Soooooooo good! Loved it!

My entree:



Coriander Dusted Grouper - cauliflower risotto, fresh English peas, crunchy sunchokes, and a yellow tomato coulis $33.00

OK - I'm not completely sure if this is the fish dish I had, but its the closet thing I can find on the menu. It's possible that they may have had a different fish special that I ordered.

Bottom line - loved it! The fish was delicate, moist, and flavorful and it still left me with enough room to enjoy......



Banana White Chocolate Toffee Tower - on Cocoa-Almond Cookie and Bananas Foster $9.00

Oh - You need a close up. Here you go.....



I love the drawings in. I find them very entertaining.





I mean - who doesn't love Benji?



After lunch we headed back to my favorite photo spot



I think C and Tracy may have hit the rest room so I seriously don't know if they made it back in time for a PP picture. So I'll let that be a surprise!

Cynthia and I had a date for a special event:

TSM!



Up Next - Who Rules at TSM!

This was seriously dessert heaven on a plate!

Hahahaha that was a great line!!! (I was pretty sure that the title was going to be SOMEHOW alcohol-related, but I had been thinking more along the lines of margaritas than champagne. So classy!! )

Lovely morning at DHS, sorry the run put a damper on it. I think your Pooh looks good. I have never done the animation class but really want to try it. I don't think anyone in my family has done it. My oldest Brent needs to do it, he can actually draw. I've never been in the Writer's shop either so that is on the list for Feb. Michelle and I are going to split a carrot cake cookie. I'm suppose to pick one up for Danielle if we don't see her that day. She is suppose to take an animation class as part of her trip. They are suppose to make a small cartoon. How neat!

Love the pictures you took at the entrance of Backlot. I've never gotten a chance to do that. Good call going into One Mans Dream. Sorry the memory card stopped more photos.

Lunch sounded divine! Great food and great service.

Stay safe through the hurricane.

Flying the friendly skies!!

Buckling up for take-off!!

That's EXCELLENT!! LOVE that story!!

Also love the fact that you enjoyed the Brown Derby- we have an ADR there for our November trip, and I have always enjoyed it in the past- although it does seem to be plagued by mixed reviews. And i had no idea they offered champagne flights...hmmmm...I know an old college roomate who was my MOH who would LOVE that!! Maybe that will have to be on the ADR list for next May before our cruise (Lonnie isn't cruising, but I am staying at BCV with her for 2 nights prior).

I've been updating my cruise TR all day, like you- maybe I should go and do a DISmom update, too....waiting for the hurricane to come in. It's supposed to get bad here at midnight through noon tomorrow- are you getting wind yet?

Can you believe it???? The only weekend all summer that we thought we were going away. We are hoping that things clear up/ work out and we can go to Williamsburg on Monday.

So glad your boys are getting to go to the baseball game today!!!!!

The animation class is so fun. Do your boys like it? I know my boys never had an interest in it, nor does my DH Denny. One trip her escaped by running off to the BR right before it started.

Day 6 was a lot of fun!

Thanks! So far just a lot of rain and some wind. Nothing terribly dramatic, but its supposed to get a lot worse tonight. Trying to get my replies done now before the power goes out.

Of COURSE I like those! I had no idea it was so nice and quiet in there. I am definitely going back. I'll have a hard time choosing what I want for my snacks.

Everything did look so yummy! I'm surprised I didn't buy anything while I was there, but I guess I was anxious to get over to RnR. Then I was too lazy to walk all the way back over there.

That carrot cake cookie is definitely high on my list. That and the macadamia nut that MeMom just mentioned.

Thanks!!

Wow - you got to do Eeyore! I love him!!!!!! It would be fun to frame them and hang them. The pictures make such a nice souvie! It's definitely high on my list of things to do. I wonder if I can get Nick to draw with me in December - probably not!

It was a great day. the only thing that would have made it better would have been if Star Tours was in a soft opening, but that didn't happen until the following week. Such a bummer! But at least I have something to look forward to!

You must visit the Writer's Stop - it is so cool in there. I fell in love at first sight. I'm sure I've been in there before, but I didn't stay long or look around. Book did I miss out!

Glad you like my pooh.

Come back and read the punch line (if you haven't already). Sorry it took me all day to get there!

So glad I saw Melissa before she left. I actually think people split up and everyone went their own separate ways. It would have been fun for a group ride on RnR or ToT, but it didn't happen. Oh well - Lunch made up for it!

Thanks for the compliment on the pictures.

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed the tour. I will admit that the DIS boards can be a great distraction. I plan to catch up on everyone else's TRs until the power goes out!!!!!

The full memory card was a bummer!

~Dawn
OK - I remember that now. I know there's a few Delaware people on the boards, but I can never keep straight who lives where. I hope things are going well there for you. I know Dover already got a couple of inches of water - twice as much as Wilmington.

I made everyone take showers too - and our bath tubs are filled incase we need that water to flush the toilets. And I did all my laundry. My DH has the AC turned to freezing for when the AC goes out.

You must be so excited for your trip which is only a month away.

It was hysterical. Really. He just threw it out there so matter of factly! He must deal with families, kids, stuffy people all day long. Obviously we looked like a group where he could tell us what he really thought! I love it!

Oh yeah - He totally did and he had just STARTED his shift. Imagine the one-liners as the day goes on. I have a feeling he enjoys a good flight here and there!

You must try the animation class. I can't imagine you and your family not loving it. It's really a fun and novel attraction and you really can't mess it up that bad.

You will love the Writer's stop - its so cute! You must stop there. I'll taste test the carrot cake cookie for you in December.

The animation class for Danielle sounds awesome - a whole cartoon - that is very cool!!!!!

I see we are both going to end up with similar things on our trip itineraries! I'll see if I can talk Denny into the Backlot tour. That is if I'm not too busy riding Star Tours over and over and over again!

Go Lonnie! You guys will have a blast. Please wear the tiaras again. And you are tempting me with talks of May, but I am definitely going in June so I know I can't swing it.

I have eaten at Brown Derby three times and its been great every time. The mixed reviews surprise me. I love it. It's especially nice for lunch, but it does cut into park time!

Now it starting to get a little bit bad in the short amount of time I have been doing replies.

I am going to find that TR now.

ME TOO!!! I remember going there YEARS ago and feeling like it was the only AMAZING meal you could get!

The rain just got a little heavier, we are probably moving T&T downstairs (& us) for sleeping (Sean already does)- I think it's gonna be crazy, but I hope it will all be ok for all of us!

ME TOO!!! I remember going there YEARS ago and feeling like it was the only AMAZING meal you could get!

The rain just got a little heavier, we are probably moving T&T downstairs (& us) for sleeping (Sean already does)- I think it's gonna be crazy, but I hope it will all be ok for all of us!
The first time I went there I only thought it was a notch about a regular TS restaurant, but I definitely think its hitting signature status. Maybe the other restaurants are going down hill. I don't know. I love it. My meal was fabulous and the portions were perfect. I'm glad we decided to eat there. We were actually supposed to eat at CMC cafe, but we changed to a lunch ADR at the last minute.

Our think our rain is getting heavier now too. I just heard the first high pitched whoosh. Denny predicts we are going to lose power "any time now". Great Denny!! Maybe I should plug my phone back in and charge it AGAIN!

We had such a disappointing time at the Derby the one and only time we went, but our waiter had a LOT to do with that. I am so glad to see that you had a great waiter.

What a fun waiter that you had!

i loved the picyures of America, I like that area, but didn't take many photos. I enjoyed seeing it again through your lens.

I'm down to TEN days before our trip!!!
