Hope you get to go to 1900PF soon! It really was a lot of fun. And I could really go for some strawberry soup right now!

Thanks! There's lots of good food pictures coming up. All of our meals on this trip were delicious.

I'm on board! All caught up now.

Let's see...what can I remember to comment on?

I love your idea of splitting CS meals on the dining plan. I'm not sure if DH and I could do it all the time (usually because of wanting different items), but even just some of the time would be great. I love to try new things but rarely want (and definitely never NEED!) the huge portion served. I'm going to have to discuss this with him!

I hope that guy that took your picture in Adventureland was just not sure how to work the camera and not being nosey with your pictures! Although, not knowing how to work a point-and-shoot is just sad...

Love the pictures of Dumbo at night. I actually haven't seen any with the lights like that!

I think you've persuaded me regarding the Duffy debate. I honestly hadn't thought too much about it. I guess I was indifferent. But you made some very good points. I'm not sure I'm a huge fan, but I think I'm cool with him now. I know that makes a huge difference...me being cool with him, right? Everyone was waiting on MY approval, I'm sure.

Thanks for reading!! Yeah, we didn't split every meal either, but often enough that we got to try lots of different foods. I really think the guy taking our picture was just that slow! And welcome to our side (the correct side) of the Duffy debate! I guarantee he's happy to have you.

Nice reporting! And I really loved the Chapter 11 humor! I don't know why I never thought of that as I am an avid reader.
I am pro Duffy as well. I looked forward to meeting him last November but was a bit disappointed that he was wearing Christmas garb instead of his usual uniform.
I stayed at French Quarter on my last trip and was also getting tired of all the extra stops that the "motor coach" had to make. But I enjoyed being close to down town disney which is one of my favorite places as Disney.
Can't wait for more report!

fantastic trip report. Congratulations on your anniversary and your competition win.

DH won our first trip to WDW back in 2003 - says it's the most expensive prize he could have won as we've been back five times so far :

Thanks for reading! Glad to have another Duffy supporter on our side. When we met him in CA last year, he was in his Halloween pumpkin costume, so we were glad to get to meet him in his regular outfit as well. We also liked being near Downtown Disney. As you'll see coming up, we liked taking the boat there from POR.

Glad to hear winning the trip worked out so well for you! We'll be sad to go back to paying for WDW after this trip haha...

Welcome! We are indeed commando tourers all the way! And this was us being a little more relaxed than we've been on previous trips.
