Great idea taking a photo of the room clock. Our clock in Kidani was about 4 hours fast. I never did take the time to fix it.

Yay for the fridge! I had a letter in the mail about the fridges when I got home. It wasn't an issue for us in the villas but I would have pretty upset if I hadnt known in advance and didn't have a fridge only to have the letter in the mail when I got home. I wonder why they waited so long to send out the letters.

How wonderful to have a friendly face there to welcome you!!! What a great start to your trip-meeting Mickey, walking up Main St, riding a classic ride and seeing the princesses. And getting all set for your first full day!

Following along! I think that it is very brave to let the CM pick your meal!! I like most things but still don't think I would be able to do it!

The ears are really cute. I really want to do more fun accessorizing on my next trip.

August in WDW must be very, very, hot. I live in Oklahoma so I'm very used to hot humid weather in the summer. However, I don't know if I could survive Disney when it's that hot!
The ticker had to be deleted. All hope is not lost though. I don't know how. I don't know when. But I'm going back!

When are you going to realize that you are a celebrity??? Seriously. Look at all your loyal followers my dear. We love you!

So glad you got your same room....great start to the trip!

Oh my...that picture with all of us eating is not very flattering for any of us! But the food was great....even if it did take forever to get. I think Sara had a horrible experience at every food court we visited other than ours. It was her veggie burger that took so long.

I was insanely jealous of all your head bling....they were just so cool!

There is NO WAY they were at CHH at the time she was texting me, the sneaky girl she is - she had to have been at FQ or close to it at that time... When she told me they were going to get a bite to eat at FQ after they had waited so long for me - it didn't even click, because I thought they had eaten at CHH... It wasn't until I was laying in bed - I realized the whole time I was checking in - they were sitting there waiting for me and STARVING. I am soooo sorry Suzi!!! But it was so wonderful to have you at FQ to welcome us to WDW!!
HAHAHA....well I wanted to surprise you. I was afraid that I had ruined the surprise. On either my PTR or yours I slipped a couple days before we left. You said "see you Tuesday" and I said something like "if not before....stranger things have happened..." But I don't think you picked up on it. But I didn't want to chance it. The plan was to be there holding a little goodie bag for each of you with Mickey balloons. Well I love you all...but not to the tune of $12 a piece for a balloon! CRAZINESS!

Then we were going to hide on you and wait for you to check in first. I almost didn't come because I didn't want to be in the way. I knew you would be tired from traveling and just want to go to the room and chill. But I wanted to welcome you. I totally meant to show Sara around the resort because it is one of my favorites, but we never did that after it took so long to get our food

Also wanted to mention...LOVE the headbands...you need to send me a pm here or on FB to let me know who did those...I may have to get one or two! I can't wear hats because I am way too hot natured, so those or maybe some sun visors would be AWESOME!

And POFQ is still one of my favorite places to stay! Of course, having been born and raised in NOLA, I feel very "at home" there. And the food court makes me happy...that Shrimp Poboy looks FABULOUS! The only question is, did they ask you if you wanted it "dressed" or not?

I meant to ask/comment all the above earlier, but I must have been too stunned that I did not get here until page 4!

I can't wait to hear more...

Curse this Real World that I live in...I missed a few pages. Easily caught up though!!

I'm ready to put together the puzzle you slipped pieces of here and on FB while you were at WDW.

Friends waiting is a great surprise and it looked like you had a great time!

And I caught that filling up with H2O most of the time. Good for you!!

Can't wait to hear who you meet up with next!!

Looks like a great first day! We also tried to stay organized this trip. I laid out all of our clothes for the next day before bed. It definitely sped the morning up and my DH was able to get my DS dressed while I was in the shower.

I love the carriage rides at PO. Charlie and I took one on our last trip. Funny thing was, the driver went to high school with me!

Everyone loved them and wanted to know where they could get their own!

D - Does your friend sell the custom ears to "the public"? If she does, can you please tell me (either here or PM) how to get a hold of her? They are so adorable and I would love to get a couple for our trip in November. Thanks!

It's always a hoot to read a report from someone that was in the World the same time as you.

Oh, and I'm following along now too!
