That and I'm thinking we can 10% at World of Disney I hope it doesn't exclude these!

actually, most Disney shops on property are accepting the 10% discount on a regular AP and 20% on the premium AP. I haven't asked, but that maybe a permanant discount setup.

Just hit the gym. This gym is better than Kidani Village. Much larger with better and more equipment. More free weights too.



The view outside the back of our building.

Has anyone figured out how to link the pics from the photobucket app on the Droid directly to a webpage such as the Disboards?

June 15th Recap -

Wow! No theme parks today. We fizzled out a bit tonight. We had planned to take the Tron-o-Rail over to EPCOT tonight, but instead we spent more time at the Polynesian Reosrt. Afterwards we drove back to Saratoga Springs and took a leisurly walk around the resort. This is a beautiful resort and its very well landscaped.

Our morning/afternoon at Downtown Disney was nice. It was a bit more crowded than I had anticipated. It was Noon when we got there and the World of Disney was packed. I was dodging other guests like a running back through a defensive line. Shoulder pads and a helmet would have been helpful.

One other observation about Downtown Disney and the rest of the Walt Disney World for that matter. I don't know what it is, but it seems to me there has been a drastic reduction of air conditioning in gift shops, hotel lobbies, restaurants, etc across property. Now, I'm all for conserving energy, but I truly believe Disney has tipped the scale on conserving energy and now it's just too warm in these common areas. When you walk into a gift shop to try and cool off and you feel little difference in the temperature it seems to me it's too conservative. Has anyone else noticed this or is it just me? I think Disney has taken too much of a cost-cutting approach with air conditioning and energy costs. I've been coming here for years and can remember saying how unbelievably cold it was in the common areas. Now, it's not even close. Just my two cents.

The food at Ohana was very good tonight. I enjoyed the meats and other food. The food was hot and well prepared. The service was not too good. My Diet Coke was left unfilled for quite some time. Both servers who helped our table didn't appear like they wanted to be there. The rest of the staff seemed okay, but our two servers not so much. The restaurant is still on the noisy side, but it was okay with us. It also seemed like the meats were not coming around fast enough. We waited quite a while to get what we wanted. I wasn't budging either until we were all satisfied. It was a good meal and we'll probably go back again soon. Ohana still provides a nice atmosphere and the food has seemed to improve.

Tomorrow we are waking-up early and heading over to the Animal Kingdom for morning Extra Magic Hours (8:00AM). We'll probably come back to the resort in the afternoon for a swim. Tomorrow night we don't have any plans so we'll probably go wherever the wind may take us.

More to come!
