Enjoy your DIS meet!

I've never had breakfast at Boma-just dinner. That juice looks a lot like the juice at 'Ohana. I love that juice. Is it the same?

It sounds like both you and Mark NEED this Dis Meet! Like you said, it's not Disney but it'll feel like a touch of Disney since you'll be dining with others who are Disney fanatics.

Your "do nothing" days sounds wonderful! You know that we like to work some of those days into our vacation as well.

I will tell the giraffes you said hello. I was able to get an ADR for Cape May...but NOT until 8 p.m.

Love the rest day with lots of Boma and lots of pool time. I drank so much of that juice the last time I was there I actually apologized to the server. I was soooooooo thirsty from being in the park for a couple hours before arriving. Yum!
That juice is just to die for. Good thing we're not going to a park after that breakfast as I'd have to stop for the potty every 20 minutes.

And your plans for your nothing day sound awesome! I LOVE Boma so much, that juice is amazing! Lounging around OKW sounds perfect, and then dinner at DTD will be fun! I hope you can get into Cape May though, you know how much Brandon and I love it there!
It will be fun see Barry and Evan again, and meeting the rest of the family.

I was able to get Cape May as I mentioned above...but will keep trying to look for an earlier slot.

I always need time away...office drives me nuts; but he has had a rough two months and he needs to get away from it all.

AWESOME MEET!!!! Don't believe anything Barry says about me. It isn't true.

I think our last DIS meet is when Barry told me all the bad stuff about you.


errrrrr.... woops.

You are forgiven.


Once again, thank you so much Kathy & Mark for the great gifts for the kids. Christopher cannot have too much Mickey stuff. I need to post a picture of his birthday invitations... I think people think we are crazy with all this Disney /Mickey stuff. I know Juliana will love shopping with her gift card in Disney.
Our pleasure (I told you, until we have grandchildren we can spoil, I'm spoiling my adopted "grandbabies" -- Ana, Christopher, Avery and Cayley.

Love a nothing day! I think we all need at least one of those when we're on vacation! Our's usually end up by the pool after our breakfast at Boma!!
You are right, Queen; this meet will hold us over for the next six weeks.

Great minds think alike!

You day of nothing sounds great! One of these years I really need to schedule us a day of nothing. I hope you're able to get the Cape May ADR.
Those two kids of "that's nice" are adorable (take after their mom!).

I can't wait to go to the Milwaukee Zoo (they have elephants which neither of the Chicago zoos do, and it is Mark's favorite animal) and looking forward to joining Barry and family.

I'll let you know what I think of our day of "nothing" after we do it. Cape May secured...now I just need to secure it earlier for us old folks.

DISmeets are the best!

Love your day 5 plans, or non plans Boma is hands down my favorite breakfast. And that juice? Oh so yummy!!

Keep checking back on Cape May Cafe, since it is one of the restaurants with the $10 fee for no shows I bet something will open up as the day gets closer, I'd even call and check the day before while you are down there if you haven't gotten anything yet.
Six days is all we are missing you by?????

I saw you started your PTR.

I did get Cape May, and will keep checking for an earlier time as we get closer.

That juice just blows me away.

Mackie and I are are planning a down day on our trip too, she's the one to actually request it. I think I've worn the girl out on previous trips.

Last trip I had some issues with swelling in my legs and that horrible rash that people complain about when they go to tropical climates.
So I took a day off and put my feet and legs up to get the swelling down before going back out to the parks the next day. Drooooove me crazy! I didn't like being down but Mackenzie loved sleeping in and staying in the room for part of the day. We ended up going to DTD around 2 or so and just strolled around after having a some what late lunch at WGPE.
Probably one of my favorite places to eat when on property.

Eating at BOMA for breakfast is top on my list this next trip, Mackenzie is all over the idea of eating scrambled eggs with goat cheese in them.
I'll leave them for her, I can't stand goat cheese, no matter how many times I try it I always wind up thinking it tastes like the equivalent of licking the back of a goat.

I will certainly have try this juice y'all keep raving about, sounds yummy!

Anxious to hear about the meet!!
Goat cheese? UGH! Not a fan at all. I think Mark will really appreciate having a "relaxing" day after the last two months with his family and all the baseball he has done since April. The juice is great (and I don't normally drink juice, but I could drink this all day).

I don't know if it's the same (I think I read where it is very similar) as I've never been to Ohana for breakfast.

The meet will be fun (which reminds me, I have to get to the store and pick up a few little things for the kids).

With the exception of last year when we stayed at AKL for two nights before doing the parks, this will be the first time we've had a "nothing" day ALL day. We'll see how that goes.

December Update

I've not talked about this trip in awhile, so I thought I'd give you a little update on it (since my "sister" says although she likes my FIRST ticker, she really "loves" my second ticker ).

I've not booked our airline tickets yet, but will do so as soon as we know whether Andy has a fall teaching job (which is NOT looking too promising). If he doesn't secure a job, he and Des will be joining us. We are looking at a 9:30 flight which gets us to Orlando around 1:15 or so. We'll take the ME to the Coronado, check in and walk around the resort (may even stop at the hot tub and have a drink).

Then we will meet Nicki and Todd at Beaches & Cream for dinner. Obviously, Mark doesn't even know about the trip, and we're not telling him Todd and Nicki will be there until we walk into dinner and see them there. I know this is going to make him super happy. He loves these guys so much.

The next morning, Friday, we have no breakfast plans. We will be heading to Epcot and Nicki has made ADR's at Chefs de France (a first for Mark and I and Andy); then we will go over to the Studios for the Osborne Lights and then we are having Mark's special 60th birthday dinner at the Yachtsman at 8:30 p.m.

Up next, Day Six Plans

Yep, you are right...Dolphin and then over to Beach Club. And no flashing my husband...you might give him a heart attack. We'll have to work on those "shirts" while we are together in 54 days.

We are going to have a DIS meet next week, so it will feel a little bit like Disney even though it is not at Disney.

Last year, I met FreezinRafiki (Barry and his son Evan, along with Captain_Oblivious and his two sons) here in Chicago when they were visiting. I didn't get to meet the slightly more important parts of their family...the women. But we are about to remedy that. Mark and I are going to the Milwaukee Zoo next Saturday (baseball ends this weekend) to get him away from everything here. Barry and his family live near Milwaukee, and we are going to meet Bambi (his beautiful wife), daughter Madison, the new addition to the family -- Ryder, and see Barry and Evan (my Mark did not meet them when they were in Chicago). We can't wait to hook up with some old friends again.

A picture from our DIS meet last year (Barry and Evan are sitting next to me):

Just catching up with all my friends' TR threads after vacation, and I saw this lovely picture here...

I remember how much you raved about my t-shirt. Couldn't stop going on and on about how much you loved it.

Anyway, I'm glad you'll get to see Barry and family again! Don't tell him I said this, but they're super-awesome.

Of course, you are too, so you probably already knew that.

And I agree--you guys really need a vacation!

This sounds like a totally great day, surprises and all!!

You and Mark really do deserve a great couple of trips with all that you're going through.

I just hope one of these days we get to run into one another!!

I almost went in Dec. last year for my 20th anniv., but I decided better when my mom was diagnosed. It just didn't seem like the right time to go, not sure I'd want to go in Dec., too much risk of it being cold and the parks close early.
I think I'm gonna have to stick to my Flower and Garden Festival and hopefully an Oct. trip some times soon with Pat and my boy.

Kathy,

Enjoy your day at the zoo! My DD and I were there last week Wednesday (Milwaukee County Residents get in for half price on Wed. ) We were there early, it was a good time to go ALL the animals were out and really active!

Have a fun DIS meet!
