Not keurigs. I would love the option to bring our own kcups. However, I'm sure DH is happy it is "less to pack". LOLOLOL

I will be driving down to the beautiful Disney Swan Resort after I finish work the Monday morning after Thanksgiving weekend. I am getting very excited to see all of the Christmas decorations and to sleep in a heavenly bed after a long weekend of work. I hope to see you down there.

Seven days and counting. If I can get off work early Monday morning I might be able to get down there in early afternoon to look around and enjoy myself. I am sure all the coffee in my system will still be working for a little while before I start feeling tired.

I always get excited as I drive under the WDW welcome sign and even more excited when I actually physically get to get on the ground and running.

Seven days and counting for me.

Ray, I LOVE your excitement! I imagine you'll decorate your Swan balcony - if you have one? I'll look forward to seeing you soon. I'll be there in 11 days!

Aww...thanks, Nancy. I do get a little excited about my annual WDW trip every December and a chance to get to see wonderful people like you.

I don't know what kind of room that I am going to get, but I decided not to decorate this year like I did at Pop Century last year. I am trying not to pack as much, and it was getting to be a little too much work for me. I used to want a view or balcony several years ago, but now, I just enjoy everything that comes my way. I am very excited to be in any room at the Disney Swan Resort and BWV and just grateful to be able to stay there and enjoy the atmosphere. Oh, and my first heavenly bed experience, too. Especially my first night after working and a 450 mile drive.

I will be decorating my mobility scooter again with those Mickey icon jingle bell Christmas wreaths again. And my Goofy Santa hat, too.

Time is getting closer. Looking forward to seeing you, Nancy and Ray. And maybe Laura too? Would be nice to meet you after all these years. Maybe SSB too this year?

Welcome home, commdoc.

Can anyone comment on the Thanksgiving buffets at Fresh Med and Garden Grove? We will be arriving NEXT year on Thanksgiving and I'm thinking that when the time comes, I will make us a reservation at one or the other. Any reviews?

I can't give feedback for Thanksgiving dinner at either, but it sure looks good.

Maybe give this one a bump to see if any feedback there.
