C and LL and others.... yes KTTK should be mandatory for DISers like us!! Tatally worth it! And C there are 3 times... so you don't HAVE to get up at the crack of dawn

The stepsisters are a hoot! I love that Anastasia had a thing for Nobby
I agree though... the food there was blah. Breakfast there was AMAZING though

yay for DIS meets!! I need a spreadsheet to figure out who all we will get to meet in Sept... but I can't wait to meet everyone!!


Paula
I know the list keeps getting longer and longer of who we will be meeting and when LOL!!!

The stepsisters were just a hoot and I really enjoyed the interaction with Nobby!!

KTTK tour is fabulous I would highly recommend it!!

DH and I are eating at Narcoosee's in September and I am so looking forward to exploring the GF. It is one resort that I have never set foot in. Of course, I may never want to leave again!
Oh it was a beautiful resort!! I loved it...so elegant!! I don't think I will ever have the opportunity to stay there but I will always love to visit there LOL!!!

First of all, this day was AWESOME!!!! You seriously know how to solo travel. And you know what I love about your report? You're so happy! You're really enjoying yourself, whether it's trying new things, or old favorites, and it's just a pleasure to read.

I don't even know where to start. I'm glad you wrote about the tour. I've thought of doing it but never had. Something to consider.

I've always wanted to try CHH, so I'm glad to hear you liked your lunch there. And don't feel bad about the Dole Whip float. It's definitely an acquired taste. I know my mom looks both, but if she's feeling like something less sweet, she'll just get the ice cream, and not the float, so I could totally see that. For me, I find the pineapple juice to be so refreshing on a hot day (and if it wasn't hot then, it wouldn't have had the same effect, you know?).

Glad you snuck in some characters on your way out! And oh, heaven! I love the pictures of the GF! It's my mothership. Did you know that? It calls to me.

I love the spa, too...again, something I haven't done in years. Maybe I should get a brochure...hmm...

Glad you had a nice dinner at 1900 Park Fare! And lots of fun with those stepsisters, huh? I love it when the characters are so interactive.
Thank you so much!! I really enjoyed this day a lot and this trip a lot!! There was a lot to be happy about!!! I really like to look at life with a glass half full attitude!!!!!

The spa was amazing if you find some time you should definitely go...well worth it!!!

I went and had a pedi with my girlfriends today. It certainly wasn't the Grand Floridian, but it was still so nice.

You and Kim are so precious! Wish I could have been there, too.
I wish you could have been there too!! I really can't wait for the day I get to meet you!!

Daisy does have fabulous shoes doesn't she!!

I have decided to get a pedicure before I go and while I go...going to treat my feet right LOL

I didn't stop! This day was so jammed back it was great!! The best part I never felt rushed until the end when I thought I might be late to meet up with Kim!! Other than that it was a great day!!

Nobby says I need to get on making membership cards LOL!! He's a great gnome and would be lucky to have you as a member LOL!!!!

I did the family magic tour with my [I]family[I] and it was awesome-I'd love to try to Keys tour sometime...

Not to get personal but I have a question about Noddy. Is he your typical garden gnome-not that there is anything typical about him-his star power shine through but he seems a little more vertically challenged than the gnomes I've seen in gardens-Is he a smaller kind of garden gnome? (It seems like it would be difficult to carry him around if he were traditionally sized...)

sigh...I wish I had a Noddy...I wonder if he has any family members seeking adoption...
Actually Nobby might be related to the travelocity gnome LOL, he is smaller only about 8 inches tall and is quite light...if you go to the travelocity site you might be able to find some of Nobby's relatives around there!!!

It was an amazing day!!!! Being the single person on the KTTK was so much fun!! I loved getting to know Matthew our tour guide!!

How wonderful. I've never been to Goofy's Candy Co. but it's in the plans for our first day in Sept! Can't wait!! Great, great update!
Never been to Goofy's you have to remedy this ASAP!!! Oh Goofy's is so wonderful!!!! Massage at GF was like a piece of heaven!!!!

Wow! What a day! And such an awesome one!

The KTTK tour sounds so great. I would really like to do this at some point, I think DH would enjoy it as well. Maybe we could sneak it in during our December trip while we have the In-Laws for built in baby sitters. Hmmmm...

I LOVE that you went to the spa! AHHHH! Another thing I hope to do at Disney someday. Love me a pedi.

I am finally all caught up! I would love to do the KTTK tour, just to brush up on my history. I was a CM (college program) in '97 so I know little secrets that I love to share with my DH as we are walking around.
