Super Sundaygg

We are heading down to Disney in Feb. We are staying at the Boardwalk and I know it has the ESPNZone, but our second day there happens to be Super Bowl Sunday. We are using ME, and buses to get around and not renting a car.

Does anyone have any suggestions on a good place other than ESPN, cause I know I'm gonna have to be there like at 1 pm to get a table and rather be in the parks with the fam and miss, yes miss, all the pre pre pre pre pre pre game stuff. But would like a place to watch, if possible, and hoist a few.

Thanks for your help.

GO EAGLES!!!! uhm, wait, someone help McNabb breath so all us Eagles fans can breath too.

Atta boy! He knows what to look for. I try not to look (try not to get caught). I have a VERY gifted Jasmine picture that if I can figure out how to scan and post, I will do so. Although, I don't have a birds eye view to include like this fine young man ...

We had Allegiant Air in Owensboro, KY for several months but they did not make it. They had non-stop flight to Orlando. Now, there is only one flight services - PacificWings - that is a 9 seater, single propeller plane, that flies to Nashville. When I went over and saw it, I thought about the Ron White (Blue Collar Comedy Tour) bit about the plane. I started laughing so hard, people started staring, and I told the jokes. They started laughing too. I did credit Ron White.

I moved down to Raleigh, NC from Canada in 2002 and we love it here. I was determined to take our son last year before he turned 3 (free) so in May we headed to POP Century for a week and when 2 months later the mouse sent us a "bounce back" offer we couldn't refuse. It did hurt that they didn't realize the little guy had turned 3 in the meantime so we headed back to All Star Sports in September. I think I realized we were hooked when we were on It's A Small World for what we determined to be the 20th time that trip and didn't even hesitate when my son asked to go on again. In April of this year we took the DVC plunge with AKV.

That's it in a nutshell, in 7 days we make the trip for the first time as a road trip for our comp stay at SSR. The best part is we haven't told him yet; I'm seriously thinking of waiting to see how far we are into the trip before he starts seeing billboards an putting two and two together.

Looking forward to many discussions with you guys! It's great to be among people who's first question isn't "Didn't you just go last year?"

I lost my original Disboard id when I changed email accounts and forgot the password. Got to get back in the groove of it.

Thanks for adding me to the list.

Even though this is a Dad's Clubs we should give some props to the ladies in our lives.
Gotta give props to DW. Also a SAHM and there is NO WAY I would ever consider taking that job!

I don't think jogging was the cause... But now I can tell my wife exercise isn't always good for me

However, the 70 pounds of gear tell me otherwise....though I am officially on "light duty" for two weeks...

I said, "shoot doc, I ride a desk, how much lighter can I get?" Unfortunately, I happen to know the doc, and he knows I won't listen anyway, and I'll be out swinging from chandeliers given half a chance, so he put me on light duty...grrrrrrrr

Oh well....so now I'm sitting here planning our trip...with us, my mom and dad; my brother, SIL and their two younguns; and my other brother, SIL and their new baby (she'll be 5 months)....

Good times...luckily, we're all pretty tight knit, all love that afternoon nap, and all love to be up early and out late (thoug my internal clock probably won't have reset yet)....so it shoule be loads of fun

Plus, no one gets bent out of shape for one or two of us to do our own thing---we just meet up again later...makes it nice and relaxing

Last night, we were watching a show and Hawaii was mentioned and my wife said, "I like the idea of moving to Hawaii, but we can't because it's too far away from Disney World."

Am I a lucky man or what?!
