So if he does ditch me I am so screwed...and MK has no booze people...what am I going to do?

For lunch I think we will go to CHH and if DH stays behind he will call room service...what a skunk! I want to lay around and order room service! Hmmm that gives me a great idea...RENT -A- PARENT! Hire parent stand ins to take kids to the parks and let the real parents relax!

We will leave the park around 2, hang by they pool since it is supposed to be warm and have dinner at Kona. Tomorrow is our last full day so I have to get their butts in the Volcano pool or I will never hear the end of it!

One more thing I forgot to tell you....in the last 3 days all the parks we went to they have the survey people asking you questions but this time they are asking you about the cleanliness of the parks, bathrooms, restaurants, are we seeing park attendants etc...and DH and I noticed yesterday and today the bathrooms are gross, there is a lot of litter around and no one picking it up, there are not as many CM's as we usually see....and there is still alot of Xmas cups, napkins, and some plates at the CS places....the most Celebration merchandise we saw was today at Epcot...the rest of the place does not look to be celebrating. Capt Cooks are still selling the old 08 mugs, no sign of the new ones yet....which stinks since they are trying to promote the new theme.



Goodnight all!

You will be fine with the girls at MK--just think of it as "girls day out" and leave poophead Todd behind. The girls will have a blast at MK. Just enjoy the day and can't wait for the reviews for tomorrow. We've been thinking of trying Kona and will await your reviews.

Thanks for the great reviews!

Love the review of Akershaus--I'm sending my parents there with my daughters next month and I'm relieved to see that it looks awesome. Actually, it looks like I might be a little jealous!

Can't wait to see the review of Ohana, we also have ressies there 'cause my DH couldn't pass up breakfast with Stitch!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Great reviews! I don't have my own kids but have been taking my twin niece and nephew since they were 3, they are 11 now, and nothing beats watching them have a good time!
Another LIer here and I agree 100% that pizza in Florida needs something like ranch dressing to make it edible!

Hey there Nicki I just found this live report! I always seem to miss the first few days.
I am so sorry to hear about your dinner the first night because I kind of wanted to do that but we will just do GFC instead. I know you loved that so it is probably a safe bet.
I can't wait to read more!

What a cute story about the CM's and the stuffed animals! However, what a haunting story about that mother??? What is wrong with her???

Your nieces are precious!!! You will have fun tomorrow at MK! Just go with the flow and don't get too stressed!

The lack of cleanliness of WDW concerns me! That is one of the reasons we love going there, so if they are sacrificing upkeep in light of trying to save money that really worries me.

The chicken schawarma platter looks delicious!!! I had already decided we were eating at Tangierine this next trip -- now I know what I want to order.

You know... I bet they have some vodka nips at the store at Poly... I've heard that the dole whip float with Vodka is good.... LOL!

I cannot believe some people, leave your kid, and go on a ride alone? That's just very poor parenting. makes me sick.

When are you all going to TH breakfast? I thought it was this trip???

It looks like Cait and I will be going to Akershus... the breakfast looks yummy! Thanks for all of the pictures! (And Tangerine Cafe was already on my list of CS places to go... I love Chicken Shawirma!)

Bring your own and make special Dole Whips

Ummm, honey I think the girls mom already did that

We will leave the park around 2, hang by they pool since it is supposed to be warm and have dinner at Kona. Tomorrow is our last full day so I have to get their butts in the Volcano pool or I will never hear the end of it!

Capt Cooks are still selling the old 08 mugs, no sign of the new ones yet....which stinks since they are trying to promote the new theme.
I hope if they're surveying about it that means they're willing to step back up to higher standards. We were a little disappointed in December, trash cans/ash trays overflowing, bathrooms weren't in the best shape. It wasn't the level I expect from Disney
Also at Epcot three rides were constantly breaking down. Many stations at Club Cool are out of service, the customize your soda bottle at Club Cool is not working either and out of order sign is on them...the older one wanted to do it but the CM said sorry it was broken...DH was so mad he said than remove the items or put a sign on it so others do not know they cannot have what they see.

Then on the way home the monorail going to the resorts was broken down and they had no idea when it would be fixed so we had to walk and carry the little one...that is NO FUN AT ALL!

that really stinks!

Goodnight all!
I know you liked your entree at Coral Reef, but overall did you think the entire meal was worth the money? We haven't been there in years (since they had the peanut butter playdough for dessert--if anyone remembers that far back ) My kids aren't into aquariums, so if we went, it would have to be for the food & service.
Can't wait for the next update, we haven't been to Ohana's or Kona for a very long time.

Don't worry, you'll be fine at MK by yourself today. It may even be easier because there isn't a "good cop" for the girls to run to. It's Disney World, it's Magic Kingdom, go have fun! I'm sure it will be magical for the 3 Princesses today

DH keeps saying that Disney is slipping and for us, since we go about 6 times a year, we can really see the little things ya know?

Um for me Coral Reef was a dead hit right on, I really enjoyed it! For Todd he liked everything but the steak...so maybe if we go another time he will try the pork....he isnt a huge fish eater, one or two bites is good for him. The kids loved looking at the tank and the divers and the HUMONGOUS Crush turtle. I would like to go back but I think DH prefers the countries instead.

Oh you guys, I knew it was going to happen, I could just feel it...I was too lucky for too long...I dealt with going number 2 and wiping little yucky noses but the worst, the gawd awful thing that could possibly happen to someone like me happened....I had to deal with......SICKNESS! You know the kind, the kid wakes you up at 1am and was sick in the bed?

Me, the one that has zero kids, the one that can get sick just thinking about it had to deal with the worst event ever...comforting a very sick little 6 year old while trying not to be ill herself.

At one am Kayla woke me up, poor little thing. Todd, again no kid experience here either, called Mousekeeping and I took her in the bathroom. Mousekeeping is fantastic, they stripped the bed, brought in a cleaner to take care of the mattress and the carpet.

This happened again at 3 and again at 4:30....again Mousekeeping couldnt be more understanding and accommodating and were at our room within 10 minutes with more sheets, towels and everything else. They came by around 9am to tell us they will clean the carpets completely and change the mattress at noon today. THe poor CM that came to our rescue was amazing, he said there were 2 other little ones in our building that had the same problem too. Todd kept tipping him $20 for his troubles, trust me he was totally worth it....I wouldnt want to do it.

It has to be the very cold weather, the excitement of the trip, the food and stuff too. So now she is on a water and dry cereal diet...had to skip the Ohana breakfast and I cancelled the TH breakfast too because that is just too much for her to handle. We are still in PJ's this morning, have to love my DH who went to the food court to get us some bagels and coffee (I need it no matter how terrible it is). I think I had 4 hours of sleep total, Todd maybe 6. The little one woke up and said she feels so much better.

So now I have no idea what we are doing today. Maybe go to MK around noon for a few hours? Should I keep the Kona dinner and if so what should I feed her so we do not have a repeat of last night? How about lunch....what should she eat?

She says she wants to go swimming, is it safe to let her?

Sorry for all the questions but I am at a loss here and my sister is ZERO help to me right now...she is doing nothing but giving me grief and major attitude. Can you believe she wants me to take pics of them on rides and niot with charcters and general pics? How am I supposed to do that? THis is not a fair ground park where I can stay off to the side and snap pictures, this place is packed and I am on the ride with them.....I swear she is making this so hard on me!

Todd just got back with bagels and coffee...and they were pretty good but forgive me no pics of these ha ha
