I will be there ... Thursday night! Just a few more days.

Anyone else? We can put together a room party. I'll bring the liquor if someone else brings the mixers.

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

So in relation to sunset, it is just before half 7 Hopefully the person looking to know is on this thread.

So I went to Magic Kingdom today but I didn't have the most magical time. Some of the guests being shocked being by myself and the things they said to me.

The reaction which was the worse was when someone said that it is a bit odd coming to a 'childs' place by yourself and someone else told me when at the gate of the part was I alright in the head as I told them I prefer to visit parks by myself. It just threw me.

Anyway I got over all of that as I went back to POR for an hour and then went back. Things I liked:

Tomorrowland - i.e. the best part of Magic Kingdom to me. I loved Space Mountain, loved Stitch's Great Escape, loved Monster Inc. Laugh Floor (the monsters couldn't understand my accent so I was "pub talking"!

Transportation - to and from POR was amazing. Buses were on time and immediate outside the park. As for in the park, the train service is amazing!

Staff at rides - while some may not agree, staff were willing to sit me on my own in huge rows of seats (such as a its a small world). Granted this was when it was quiet but this was great to have my own space.

And not getting burned as I used a 50 factor suncream!!!

Tomorrow it is either a pool day or a day at Hollywood studios depending if I wake up with aches and pains!

Villains Night was not well planned, dear friends of ours were stuck for five hours going bw three buses and never made it back to HS...it took us almost two and a half hours to get to Riverside...took the POFQ bus planning to walk over...our bus driver felt so sorry for the five or so families that she drove us on to POR...cheers erupted, we were so touched by her kindness...not a fun way to spend your birthday but the earlier part of the day was nice!

I did ask for refund for no fridge...was told mgmt only refunds if there was a medical need..I tried to explain that normally I would not complain but after the rough night with DHS I felt more motivated...we were so dog tired, each of us were parched, no option for beverages, would have been nice to have cool water, since we had no fridge we relied on running to rest. for ice water, but never expected an almost two hour wait for bus plus another hour to get back...she did refund the $15 but kept reiterating it was not their policy.

Love love the resort, first time down slide today at pool, lots of fun...TV remote is antiquated...no way to advance guide, have to wait for it to roll by, surely they can get a better remote or have a TV guide

FYI, they have a new chicken sandwich on menu for quick service, Fire Chicken, I asked what it was, the CM acted a little put out, said it was a spicy chicken sandwich, duh, I got that, I was asking what was on it, he said cheese...no...it came with a mound of avocado and jalapeños both of which I can not eat...too tired to get something else, most other CMs are awesome!
I'm nervous about the fridge. What do you mean they would only give refund if it was a medical necessity? So, there is not a guarantee for a medical necessity? My DH is diabetic. We HAVE to have a fridge. It's not an option....his med has to be refrigerated. I have the request on our ressie, and will fax request. Andre...should I be concerned? I'm nervous after reading this.

Thanks! Thinking back now, it makes me angry but then I think so what...I am still having a good time. I just wish I had ignored it now and had some smart comment to say back to them at the time! hehe

I have gone solo the past two trips to WDW and will be going again in 13 days...by myself. I love the freedom to follow my plan or "go with the flow." Sorry some people were so insensitive. They just don't "feel the Magic!"

Just make sure you note it in your requests and fax it in 3-5 days prior, so far anyone who needed a fridge for medical reasons (in the past week) have had a fridge put in their room...do not worry, I bet you will be fine

How do you know that so far everyone who needed one got one? Did they tell you? If you get to talking to a CM, tell them TD's DH NEEDS a fridge on Oct. 5th....lol!
The irony of only giving a credit for a medical NEED...a need is a need, not an option. I am a little paranoid. Because we have a travelocity ressie, it took literally 6 phone calls and two emails to get the request put on our ressie (and, since I can't see the request, I hope I was told correctly). I already have my request printed out ready to fax.
