Sorry

Sorry, MickMan, I done used up my daily allotment of mean today. You will have to come back tomorrow. Get in line early as it usually gone by the time I swing my legs out of bed in the morning with scant hopes of a new shipment at any time during that particular day.

I am too busy getting ready to leave for DW in a few days and from what I hear the new finger scanners automatically take the pure meanness out of you before you enter the park. They have also added medication to the water spray areas in case anyone is in need of a renewal.

Those who flame, either for the pure fun of it or whatever just need to be treated like small children and ignored until they decide to play nice. IMO

Secret ingredients

They have put the happy stuff in Dole Whips, MS cinnamon buns, and the Mickey Bars as well, just in case.

Disney is so sneaky that they also put so much to see in each park that you are never able to see it all in one trip and have to keep returning in hopes that one day you might.

I am working on my 25th year or so and have never mastered it, yet.

Addictive

MickMan, have you figured out why an ice cream bar, made with premium ingredients but no different than any other such, tastes better when it has ears?

Luster, me thinks there is a lawsuit in there somewhere on the grounds of addictivity. (yes, I know there is no such word but now there is, so there!)

[QUOTE=macraven;46753080]

i hear you on the flaming in some of the threads.
it's like a train wreck.
but, i do go back at times and read to see "who is winning" this arguement.

fancy nancy, you have to stay with us here.
mac 101 rule is once you post, you are a voting/posting member in this thread.
it is too late for you to leave us........



Please don't worry about it I'm not leaving! I had a horrible day at work yesterday and I think things got to me just a bit too much! LOL

BTW, I love your name because there is a great series of children's books out with that name and they promote better vocabularies and anyone who knows me knows I love me some words! Verbosity is my middle name and it gets me into trouble now and then.

I promise you that I am the worst on this thread and while I mess up occasionally I would never be mean to anyone - at least anyone who is not being mean to someone else.

SG, who still worries about someone taking her favorite room at AS. They can have it after and before I am there though
I am the original FancyNancy! LOL My name is Jessica Nancy and so growing up my father called me FancyNancy. I know that you meant no harm and actually find you very entertaining. I've been going to ASsports since 1999 I do believe and I actually get anxiety when I think of staying anywhere else on site! No lie.

Whew!

Hey there Fancy, I am glad that you are not offended by my silliness.

Do you like Sports for the same reason I do? It is at the end of the road so I cannot possibly get lost, UNLESS I go the wrong direction and end up at Crossroads. It has happened.

That and for some reason I just LOVE the surfboard bay pool. I like to just kind of float on my back and stare up at the palm trees and the stars at night. Surely there is no better view than that. Also, I know the layout and it is a nice small resort so I won't get lost. I am directionally challenged. I can't even rent a car down there. I have to take the Disney buses where I can zone out and not pay attention to where we are going until we reach the park!

In all of my trips to the world I have never rented a car as well. I let them do the driving from the airport and back. I would get lost as well and end up in Tampa or even worse, Miami.

Agoraphobic?

FancyNancy, we started going to DW because I could park the car and take Disney transportation because of MY directional inabilities as well. I can now get to AK and the Studios and to DTD though. I can give you the simple instructions if you ever want to venture it for yourself.

I am slightly agoraphobic and have problems with new things and my husband has an even worse problem so Disney is about the only place we can really vacation now.

It is a good thing that we like familiar and there are so many things to see and people to meet every trip. When might you be there next? We leave Sunday and only have a bit over an hour to get there nowadays.

Luster, I kept getting lost in the POP parking lot when I was there with a bunch of DIS friends. Ang knows all about it and she did not laugh, at least where I could see.

i hear my name being called...........

i'm in the top % for being directionaly challenged.
no lie.



i started taking my 3 boys to the motherland in 1993, (or was it 02?)
mr mac hates florida.
he hates the motherland.
he hates the summer heat there.
he hates concrete and blacktop.
he hates crowds.
he hates standing in any line.
he hates orlando.
but he loves me dearly......

so i don't ask him to do family trips there.


the boys whined so much wanting to do disney that he told me to take them to the motherland and he would pay for all the expenses which would be our kids "family" trip.

i rented cars each year once i got into mco.
since two of them could read words that had more than 6 letters, i figured i would teach them how to read street signs and maps.
my oldest, a 9 year old, was really good at that most of the time.

one year i did separate trips with the boys.
on the last trip of that summer with the last kid, we decided to explore and look around Old Town. the boy was curious.

long story short.
we ended up past Tampa when trying to get back to Sports.
and, he told on me to Mr Mac.
and he also told dad about the dent in the car


ever since then, Mr Mac pays for my private car service while i am on vacation in Orlando.
he has no issues at all for me doing a private vacation as long as i agree never to rent a car in orlando.

yes, i have been going solo since about 2004/5? now.
took the boys for years each summer.
took 2 of them on separate trips while they were in college.
(i hate spring break time)

last year i stayed in orlando for 18 days.
i do split stays between the motherland resorts and the darkside resorts.

Mr Mac and i do a couple trips together each year though.
He also does a solo camping trip early spring so we coordinate our trip schedules in early january each year.

to backtrack on this subject, i would get lost drving from Sports to MGM/Epcot back in those car rental days.
very directional challenged........!

Fancy Nancy, I love the idea of floating on my back looking up at the palm trees and stars. That just sounds so relaxing right now and the idea that I might actually feel warmth again living in IL as I do. lol

For all you directionally challenged I know the Orlando area as well as I do the Chicago area where I grew up. DH and I have hopes of moving to Orlando so I studied those maps and scoured the realty websites and have been on a couple exploratory drives on our last couple of vacations. We even went down to Siesta Key Beach last time we were down there. Oh and I have been driving down from IL as the only driver for quit a few years now. I could most likely drive straight through but DS protests about 13 hours in that he needs a bed.

Mac I think your husband and mine would get along good. I always book our Disney vacations with just myself and son who is now 18 but I am pretty sure will always be willing to go with on a free vacation in Disney World now that I have made him an addict. Anyway, if DH decides to go he usually tells me about a month ahead and I will add him then but he doesn't ask to go very often. He is alergic to all the things your DH is like lines, heat, blacktop, the cost of the food, etc. Not Orlando though he doesn't mind it there just doesn't like the mouse trap.

I too tend to joke in threads and sometimes people do bend them way out of context and take them so serious even when I can not understand how anyone can see it as serious someone does. I try to be careful though.

I was at Sports at one time when you were in building 7 at the end by Surfs up but sadly we did not cross paths that year. I know it was you there because of your decorated window and that you were supposed to be there at that time. I think it was beginning of June a few years back. I will admit, even if it is not popular here, that I love Music too. Since I drive it doesn't matter if I stay at Sports or Music and when I have taken the bus at Music it worked out well for us too. When I stay there I only stayed prefered though so I don't do it often. I love being right there by the pool and the parking lot at Music. lol

OH and yes I was in the car when SG got lost in the Pop Century parking lot. No I did not laugh I simply guided her to the exit. lol Can I laugh now Linda?

I guess it isn't too bad, they have road signs that lead you everywhere. I am just spoiled and let them drive me instead
