My DGS was 4 when we did the grand gathering and he LOVED that little slide and pirate pool!


ScottMC - no offense about BWI. One dd was terrified by a clown when she was little and DH and I can't get past the "IT" clown look so that's why BWI isn't our cup of tea!

Sure Dee. This thread helped me so much, I'm glad I can actually contribute something to it.

SNARL!!!! @&*%$, *@#$%, NASHING OF TEETH, NASHING OF TEETH!!!!1!!!11!!!

I've freed myself of the restraints and taken over the nurses station! Before they come with the tranquilizer gun I thought I would chime in while I still have computer access....

Don't you think if they got that lion something a little more comfortable to sit on he would be 'out' more? The problem is that "rock' just ain't cutting it for those skinny, tender lion buns. Somebody needs to take a safari ride truck out on trash day and recycle an unwanted curbside sofa! In a contest between heated rock and family room sofa, family room sofa WINS!

So what if it's not "Authentic"? Cover it with some Kente cloth and boom! you've got something stylish, comfortable and a heck of a lot more attractive than that Poacher scene they cooked up awhile back!

Thinking this whole thing through (It's what NM does best!) one would consider that the other animals would catch on and try to "steal" the sofa from the lion. Well.... THAT would just make hunting all that much easier! In Ninja Mom's house if you take her spot on the sofa you get your head bit off. THINK of how much money they'd save on lion kibble or what ever it is they feed that lazy feline 'decoration'! It's a win win all the way around!

I have to say that I really appreciate Nannette's posts on her journey to acquiring Magic Bands and Fast Pass plus. I for one am holding out until the bitter end and I'll be the last to adopt this new technology, primarily so that they can work some of the many bugs out. Still, I'm following along with Nannette's post and she is laying it out step by step so that even the densest amongst us (NM!!!) will be able to figure it out.

OOPS! Gotta run! The orderlies are here with a big net and a jacket with enough buckles to make it look like they raided Micheal Jackson's closet from the 80's.

Thanks for all the lovin and missin!

~NM

HeeHee..I never took offense, and this is coming from someone who had a crippling fear of clowns as a kid. You have no idea how many birthday parties I missed...never mind how during "Circus Week" in kindergarten, my dad had to carry me in, put me in my seat (wailing of course), and the teacher had to hold me down until he was out of the building! At this point in life, I don't like clowns, but the BWI pool is so fun! It's definitely my favorite after BC/YC. It is too bad that I really think a lot of people pass on BWI because of that clown. I think that the inside of the inn-side, is the closest WDW has to the GF in terms of elegance. Oh well. Hope DD has a wonderful day tomorrow!

Prior to that date the window to confirm the mailing address/customize the band opens and tells you how long you will have to customize the band. My trip is 10/31-11/4 and I have until 9/18 to customize. I can customize for rides right now only... there is no option for me to choose shows or parades at this time..I'll be watching for that option to pop up! I currently have a MagicBand for my upcoming September trip which I thought I would be able to use for October, but apparently they will be sending another one for Oct/Nov I really hope that eventually that will change and the band you have for one trip can be customized for another trip without having to send new bands.

I think I like the whole concept of fast pass +, but it really causes you to plan and micro manage trips even more than trips are already micro managed, but it is nice to know I can take my time and know I can do all the things I want to do and not rush to get to them!

~N
Pardon my ignorance...I've flipped through all the FP+ and MB stuff, but now I'm thinking about our Dec trip (12/4-8, YC). Do I just wait for Disney to contact me about MBs? Or do I have to be proactive?

With regards to the slide and younger kids...if you stand around where the slide comes out you can walk with them to the pathway where they cross over and watch them go up then walk back to the pool. You'll make it back well before they get down, there is always at least a few people in line and it's a long way down. Also if you go before your child, you could wait towards the rope for them, the lifeguard may or may not usher you away quickly.

I have a question that I'm hoping y'all can help with. At CL can you get whole milk? I know they have skim, but my son can't have that it has to be whole milk. TIA

They seemed to regularly put out 2% last week. At breakfast, they also added skim as an option. I never saw whole milk out, but that doesn't mean they couldn't necessarily get for you. I never asked, so can't say for sure whether it's available.

Thank you. I will ask for sure. I hope they can help us out. It'll give him a chance to eat what he wants, cereal lol.

Glad to see you back on the boards, and truly thankful that you are of sound enough mind to sensor some of your more nasty thoughts.

Call or email IPO and ask for it. My grandson has to have almond milk. We emailed them and asked if they could get it. They emailed us back and wanted to know how much we needed and said they would have it waiting for us when we arrive.

That was good customer service.

We have been told that there is real brewed coffee in the mornings at the Ale & Compass lounge in the Yacht Club lobby.

Joffrey's coffee is now being sold in The Marketplace. I haven't heard any reviews about how it is, but it certainly must be an improvement upon Nescrape!
