Kathy, thanks for a Yummy food report! That is so sweet that you give a child a baloon in memory of your Dad. What a great tradition.

I'm glad you got to meet so many Disers! thank you so much for sharing all the great pictures.

I must say, the ballon in memory of your father pushed me over the edge, I'm still crying. What a beautful way to remember your Dad. My Dad died 2 years ago and still whenever I see Spectromagic (his fav.) I'm reduced to tears. Thanks again.
I've never been to the New England area, but I've heard you have wonderful seafood. We have never had a bad meal at Fulton's...and I think you should give it a try. And thanks for the word about my balloon memory and I know what you mean about Spectromagic...it reduces you to tears.

Thank you so much.

I know you will not be surprised to learn (that) I do the same in honor of Toby ~ he so loved the MK as a child and giving a balloon to a child seemed so right. I have done each visit since he passed, but have told no one until now....I know you understand.

I am always shy when it comes to finding a family and never sure how much to say. So I usually say something to the effect that my little boy loved WDW and like to share my memories with another child with a balloon.

Beautiful, Kathy.
Thanks, Christine (and no, I don't think you skimmed...Pickles don't skim ) and I'm not surprised at all that you do the same for Toby.

3 weeks ago my father had a heart attack. He had a bypass done that same week, and now he's recovering. Do you know what he keeps asking?

"When are you taking me to Disney World?"

Unfortunately he can't come with us in January, he has a business obligation - but the Happiest Place on Earth has kept him in good spirits, just the prospect of going back there has put a smile on his face, and the memories of going when I was a child are what we shared while he was in the hospital.

Walt sure has made us a magical place...
I'm sorry to hear about your dad, but glad to know that he is recovering. Please keep me posted and I'll keep him in my prayers. Walt should be proud of that magical place he made for us.

Glad you enjoyed the food report. I think Dad would have liked what I've done.

Loved the food reviews and am so glad I was able to eat with you guys at Bomas. You're right it was very good. I already have another ADR to eat there in Dec with my mom and husband. Glad you guys had a good trip!

Good for you that you get to go back to Boma! Have a gallon of juice for me, please.

Thanks. We love Cosmic Rays and CHH too (with the exception of Mark's most recent meal at Cosmic Rays).

I'm glad you both enjoyed the food reviews.

Kathy, loved your trip report and loved your dining report. Yum all the way!
The Plaza is definately on the list for us for another time. Future...way future. Must say on track. No planning for me (I need to keep convincing myself of this!)

I agree with everyone else that the tradition to give a child a balloon in your father's memory is so touching and healing to spread some pixie dust!

Thanks for sharing!

Yes...no Disney planning for you...Hawaii or Alaksa are on the radar.
Glad you enjoyed the reviews.

Thanks. I enjoy doing the dining reviews and those were done first as they are easier than the trip report (which I just finished the other day).

As the parade ended, I decided to make it a yearly tradition to get a balloon as we leave and give it to a child in memory of my dad. We found a wonderful couple with their five year old daughter. I excused myself and explained what it was that I was doing (I did much better this year--although I had tears in my eyes, I wasn't hysterical and was actually coherent and you could actually understand what I was saying). The wonderful couple asked about my dad and what his name was and said they'd say a special prayer for him and had their daughter give me a hug. It was a nice way to end our trip to Disney.
Those fries look AWESOME! They used to have big thick ones like that at CHH, but now have the skinny, skins-on ones. I am thrilled to see the thick ones at the Plaza! I wonder if they would make a "to go" order for me, so I could have that with my Corn Dog Nuggets from Casey's...

Your balloon story made me cry!! What a WONDERFUL thing to do in honor of your Dad!

Certainly wouldn't hurt to ask.

Thank you.

My pleasure. Is tomorrow the big day...the last day of work?

YAY! I found someone else who doesn't order whip cream on their hot fudge sundaes. I find the whip cream takes away from the taste of hot fudge & ice cream. My DF always makes fun of me for this, but I am very particular about my sundaes.

I really need to make an ADR for the Plaza the next time I go to Disney.
