I've heard many TR's sing the praises of Kona's breakfast, but not too many on the dinner side. I think I'd like to try it for lunch, this was my one stipulation to DH that we have at least one sit down meal while we are there, so Kona would be it. Do you have any other suggestions of a place that I should really try?

P.S. Sad that you are on your way home already....
I love everyplace that we've eaten at WDW.....so I don't think you could go wrong. We've never eaten lunch at Kona.....but I bet it would be nice. There's got to be some people out there who could tell us for sure though.

I'm surprised to hear you say that we are on our way home "already"....since it seems like if been writing this TR forever. It's true though.....it's getting very close to the end....

How long have you and Tinkershell been married? It's nice that you get along so well.

I agree, how sweet! I guess that is what years of marriage will do for you. According to his sig it wil be 20yrs this Oct.

PPA- you still have me laughing out loud. I'm just hopeing you can squeeze in three more days.

After we explained our dilemma....he released me from his choke-hold....and told us that we would have to walk back up to the top of the TTC area and then cut through the Poly Parking lot.
You were lucky he only fired warning shots. Sometimes they send the dogs out. Disney Security is nothing to fool, as you found unfortunately out.

At least she did it lovingly. So does she plan on stabbing you AFTER she bludgeons you, or the other way around?

Yup.....twenty years....in August actually. Our honeymoon was in October because that was when the offseason pricing for the Disney Cruise started. So, as you can see, I've been cheap for a long, long time. As you can also see, Tinkershell is obviously a saint.

luvngoofy, I think I'm going to finish before you leave.....but keep your fingers crossed.

Well....it was kind of a long way to go to work in an old joke. Consider yourself lucky that I haven't figured out a way to include "where's the beef?" or "I can't believe I ate the whole thing" yet.

Once again......not exactly the emotion I was looking for.

Ok...I realize that the beach is further away from the castle than Mainstreet USA....but people were saying on the disboards that they loved watching wishes from the Poly. Why would people love watching tiny fireworks hucifer? That's what caught me by surprise.

I think she was playing it kind of loosey-goosey.......just keeping her options open.

Now that you mention it...yes he did. He also played a mean air guitar in his boxer shorts.

Actually, if I was already dead.....why would I be so concerned about being murdered? Although......maybe I don't realize that I'm already dead yet....because that's been known to happen. In fact, what if Haley Joel Osment is the only one reading this TR....and he's just replying under a bunch of different names? To be honest....I don't know what to think anymore.

Welcome SunnieRN. I'm glad you like the TR. It does run the gamet of emotions though doesn't it.....but isn't that how life works? Don't forget, this is just a recount of true events.....more or less.

For some reason, my family loves the gangsta pose.....we've got loads of pictures of it. Finding one without it....that's the challenge.

C'mon, you can eke out a few more chapters. Do a plane segment with Pal Mickey riding the wing, ala the "Twilight Zone." LOL

Thank you very much for the link.

Even I have no idea how long I could stretch out this TR if I really put my back into it. But I think we're down to one or two more chapters........hmmmm...and maybe an epilogue.

It cannot end! And remember, you could always do a PTR. I think that would satisfy the angry mob.

They join hands and close their eyes…..trying to imagine what it would be like to switch places with each individual animal….to walk a mile in it’s hooves, if you will. They are 100% immersed in the experience….which is great… if you aren’t saddled with my tiny microscopic attention span.

Next up: Chapter 13 – We’re still at AK right? Just checking
I am so loving your TR.

Our families are alike except we all like something different. DH is like you look, enjoy and move on to the next thing. Me I love gorilla's would stay in one spot all day and watch them. DD loves tigers, she would stay there all day. DGD & DGS want to see them all.

Can't wait to read the rest of your report.

I know it's difficult......but I am running out of trip....to report......so eventually it'll have to end.

Disneymoon09, I haven't given much thought to a PTR. Maybe after we book our ADRs I'll decide. I noticed we get a one day head start on you....so we'll try to not take all the good ones.
