Have a great week everybody!
I missed this while I was off having fun at DL! I'm glad the WL was great, that's the next WDW resort that I check into. I can't wait to hear about this trip too! My cruise is coming up soon as well!

Pam which sandwich did they take off??

Oh yay so glad that you enjoyed the cookie! It's so ridiculously delicious. Probably even better with a glass of ice cold milk

Can't wait to hear how the cruise is going/went!

Hi everybody thanks so much for all the well wishes and safe travels! I got back home last night and had an absolutely amazing time. Can't wait to share it with you.

I will say for all of you who followed my September trip, those low wait times have ruined me. I could not handle the crowds at WDW after the cruise and literally only did two attractions. It was a really low key WDW part of the trip, which was actually really nice.

They took off the veggie sandwich which to me makes no sense. They have so many meat options, why take off a sandwich that you already have all the ingredients for. Now the only veggie option they have is the Caprese.

Oh my goodness. That cookie was so good! I had the chocolate chip and mom had a toffee chocolate chip. I would never ever have noticed them in the menu if it hadn't been for you, thanks!

The cruise was fantastic. Can't wait to share pictures

I loved this report so much. I mentioned you in my report - hope you don't mind.
We had a great time and thanks to you we remembered to stop and take time to see the little things...as well as try a sit-down breakfast!

Have they seriously taken the veggie sandwich off the EOS menu?? - I am gutted

That really doesn't make sense as it only leaves one veggie option - booooo

I can so understand this. After going during slow season for years, I did not know what had hit me in November. Still, I think I enjoyed taking in all the clever detail and doing a lot of character meet and greets a lot more than the times when I have literally run from attraction to attraction.
