My apologizes to calling anyone lazy. I guess each there own on deciding what is far and what isn't.

I might consider LM rooms far after my upcoming trip, since last trip at POFQ I was spoiled as everything was under 5 minutes.

Just checked in about 45 minutes ago and I'm currently sitting by The Big Blue Pool, enjoying a "Sweet and Savory" platter and a beer from the cafeteria (which, along with a water, was $23...)

It's very colorful and the kiddies are having lots of fun. Right now it's not too crowded, so it's pretty relaxing!

The walk from the Little Mermaid building was nothing. I just went through the Lion King area and I was here! Having a great time so far, I'm glad I decided to try something new instead of Pop.

Just a plate of cheeses and fruit with bread and chocolate covered strawberries. It was actually quite good, the grapes were nice and fresh and the cheeses were delicious. Not worth $11.99 IMO but that's Disney.

Oh yeah definitely better than Pop. Another thing that looked amazing was the surf n turf burger - crab cake with shrimp on top - but I wasn't hungry enough for that much food. Maybe tomorrow!

Please clarify if they have basic American foods like cheeseburgers, pizza and chicken strips (adult size entrees) which are deal breakers for our family.

Do they still have the refillable mugs that look like this? I am hoping for some new ones in 2013 but I was wondering if they still had these old ones...
