I went to Cirque du Soleil's Dralion show this afternoon, had a great time. Walked out and it was pouring. Thankfully had an umbrella or would have forked over $40 for one they sold at the show.

I hope everyone's had a great weekend
I'm glad you enjoyed Cirque!

Not sure if I'll venture out tonight or not -- depends on the weather.

Stay safe Kathy, and anyone else who is having nasty weather.
Enjoy your trip Laura! Sounds like a good time for resort time!

Afternoon J's & K's - hope everyone is well.

Well, we're all battoned down and pretty much ready to go......... I hope Isaac fizzles, but not gonna hold my breath. My hope is that for us at least, that it doesn't move anymore to the west - that'll be BAD for us - basically we'd be on the "wrong" side - like Gustav - yeah, that's the one where we lost the roof to our house!!! I didn't sleep at all last night, for some reason, I'm worried about this storm. Anyway, I hope anyone else in it's path stays safe. I just feel horrible today, stressed and a migraine and just waiting........... lol -- and my ex mother in law passed about 15 min. ago - she was a lovely person who was always good to me. Sad day!!

Wendy,

Stay safe. I also hope Isaac fizzles out, and doesn't cause any more damage, especially in your area.

Sorry to hear about your ex-mother-in-law. I'll keep her in my prayers.

Yes, but when I explained to the tag fairy that being called "Ali" brings back painful childhood memories of being ridiculed and bullied she changes it. I gave her a couple suggestions, and that's the one she picked.

Sorry for the losses I have been reading about in this thread! I hope everyone stays safe from Isaac too!

We just switched to AKL standard room yesterday from a moderate and I'm second guessing myself. I love, love, loved Kidani last year and this year wanted to stay somewhere new (going the Jambo House counts right??) and really felt like AKL is the only resort that truely feels like you have been transported somewhere far away. We are taking my MIL on her first and likely only trip so even though it was a stretch financially (we are heading down for 10 days in less than 3 weeks so this was an extra unplanned/unbudgeted trip this year) I really wanted her to experience AKL.

Now I'm wondering if we should switch back to a Mod since we can't afford the Savannah view. We had one at Kidani and waking up in the morning to the sounds of zebras playing was truly the highlight of our trip. If we stick with a standard, is there a certain area I should request that would be close to the Mara and close to the valet/main entrance? I found a map and it looked like unless I pay for a pool view and request Zebra trail that isn't really possible?

Thanks!

I am sorry for your loss. I hope that Isaac will give you a wide berth and does not cause any trouble.

Wendy,

Lots of prayers going out to you and those in the path of Isaac. I'm so sorry about your ex-MIL. Stay strong, dear friend. We are all here for you.

It rained here in WDW last night and this morning, but things have been fine since around 11am. Not the prettiest of days, but great park weather!

My degree is in saxophone performance. So I've always considered myself a "saxy" kind of gal. Especially in college when I usually the only gal in the jazz band. I gave the TF a few choices and I guess that was the one she liked.
