Wonderful pictures! Seeing the pictures of POFQ and POR made me excited that we'll be there in 213 days! Kona for Mother's Day I'm looking forward to a breakfast there as well.

Mega update!

Kona is one of our favorites, we just love it! The waiter showing you the desserts looks like the same one we had last year.

The video of Brooklyn playing with Bella is so funny! Bella did not seem to interested in playing with her at that moment

Cute pictures of the girls! Those two are going to be best friends for life. Dinner and breakfast both look very tasty. I just love the Poly. In fact, right now I'd like to be sitting on the beach there watching Wishes right about now.
What a fun morning with the playhouse friends.

Oh My Goodness Jill and MeMom! I go to church for the evening and when I get home to DIS, look at all the updates!

First off, POFQ looks like a really pretty resort, perfect for that weekend trip you took.

I can't believe how empty Hollywood and Vine was that morning. Bella is so funny, she can't take her eyes off any of those characters.

Now for the May trip...................Breakfast at Kona! YUM ! Enjoy some tonga toast.

This is the most adorable picture of Brooklyn and Bella I've seen. You can just tell how much Brooklyn loves her sister, it warms my heart!

Also loved the pics at Kona Cafe. I only went there last time because I couldn't get an ADR for Ohana, but it turned out to be one of my favorites! We have an ADR for our September trip, I'm really looking forward to eating there again!

Wowzers! I am a day late and on page 10! I feel like it's one of those tours where you arrive a little late and are running to catch up. Phew! Now I can breathe again!

I love all the pics, but I think my faves are of the girls together and the ones from the bus where they are making faces at each other. I love watching siblings play together and yours are so cute Jill!

Yum! I love Kona! I can't wait to hear what you think of breakfast. We had dinner there and I can't help but wonder what we'd think of dinner there sometime! Looking forward to more photos! Now I am prepared to keep on moving and just window shop. I've got the the bags put away, as told!

Okay, thanks Jill. I really hope they add Handy Manny before our July trip!!

I probably shuddered for a moment, but then I realized it was a family from school whom I had helped make plans for this trip.

One of my instructions was to make it to rope drop and go straight to Dumbo. They had taken my advice, and they were thrilled beyond belief to see this empty Fantasyland and walk-on Dumbo ride.
very cool!

Hey, you did get to see Sebastian!

Aw, I loved the pic of the girls in the Mickey ears at the Contemporary. Brookie was in my spot and Bella was in Sis's.

I cannot wait to eat at Kona for dinner in July!! It looks like you had a yummy meal!

And I cannot wait for H&V breakfast with the little guy. Are those the only characters that are always there?
Yes, I know it's hard to believe, but I did spend some time in the shops.

Kona was deicious. That steak was nothing short if melt-in-your-mouth incredibleness!

This is such an adorable picture of the girls!

Yippeeee! For Kona on Mother's Day
Please somebody order Tonga Toast! MMMMMMMMM!
Tonga toast was the first thing I thought of, but then Jill reminded me of the Macadamia nut pancakes that I have longed for. I will probably get those and talk someone else into getting Tonga toast so I can have a bite.

I'm sure Jamie will treat you to many Disney trips and meals in years to come. She adores you.

Ours has more than paid for itself. I bought the first one, and Jill has bought the last two.
