It's a sensitive topic. I think some people haven't witnessed some of these types of situations so they either think I'm exaggerating or making it up. But I don't let 1 or 2 bad experiences in the lounge tarnish what I like about it. I've had more good ones than bad.

LOL - so true! You were trying to point out that some people do abuse CL and it was vehemently denied!

I have been following along too!

Enjoy your last 2 park days.

I can tell you this has been the slowest week for me though. We leave on Saturday.

What time do you leave on Saturday? If yo hear some crazy lady screaming your name or "tigger loves pooh..tigger loves pooh" at MCO or the poly on Saturday it might be me.

LOL! Our flight is at 11:30 so I'm guessing our ME pickup will be around 8:30.

Went down this morning and got our new keys. Now I'm in the lovely laundry room washing clothes while everyone else sleeps.

I went to capt cooks for breakfast, I desperately needed some variety ... I just couldn't stomach another plain bagel or croissant. They really need to switch things up with the breakfast offerings. Yc CL always had different types of breads or muffins to make it seem different from day to day.

Did I tell you guys I ordered a birthday cake for tomorrow? I'm going to run to mk today and get Nic some special birthday ears with his name on them. He'll officially be 14 tomorrow!

I'm all in!!!! Great reporting. My family and I will be there on Monday August 5-14...at CBR. We love the Poly though [although we've never stayed]. The ambiance is great - plus watching the fireworks on the beach as the sound is streamed in from Magic Kingdom was awesome.

By the way, what camera are you using? Great pictures!!!!

Enjoy the rest of your stay and I'll be following.

I know what you mean about variety in the CL... I don't mind but DH grumbles about it by the end of vacation. My upcoming vacation we decided to do a sit down breakfast on the last day... DH is so happy! Mostly for bacon.

He's going to love the cake! AND the ears, what a special treat!

It's a Nikon Coolpix S9500 .... I just got it this spring and I love it! Very easy to use, small, and idiot proof. LOL

Well, I'm back from my birthday shopping trip DH took the kids to AK and I went to Mk. Found some good stuff for Nic. Got him birthday themed Mickey ears with his name and birthdate on the back. Also got him a cool SotMK binder to put all his cards in. Also giving him a gift card so he can do some shopping tomorrow night at Epcot. We will make tomorrow as exciting as we can!
