Lucky you!!! I had one of my best BD's ever at DL. Did the Walk in Walt's Footstep tour, the Fantasmic Dinner package (the one they used to have on the Veranda of what Walt's apartment in New Orleans Square) and also a wine/cheese package to watch MSEP.

I like the Big Thunder Ranch dining but I'd say it's more a combo of Mickey's Backyard BBQ (but without the characters and dancing) and Trail's End. Food was very similar to the platter at WC though. I have some pics if you haven't seen any.

Can't wait for the meet!! I'm still planning on getting my VWL fix by having breakfast at Whispering Canyon. Will be a first to eat there.
hello there Ms. Bobbie!

I really was hoping to still be at AKV for simplicity's sake on that date & then move to SSR. I've still been trying to get the 16th & 17th at AKV but no luck. I'm really excited about the meet though. I think we might be up to about 10 people (plus their families of course) & one of them is BWV Dreamin! I predict a fun time will be had by all!

On another note (I'm sending you a PM Stopher!) my waitlist for BWV came through yesterday for our Oct. trip! Kat4Disney that makes it that much easier for us to meet up for those slushes!

Have a great day groupies!

Hi back to you! Have a great time! I've tried again to get into the VWL for this trip, but no. We'll be here in December for sure!

stopher1 - Thanks for the lunchtime pictures! I just returned from a funeral for the mother of a long time friend. The pictures were a great pick-me-up!

Sorry to hear that. My thoughts are with you and her family.

Stopher, thanks for the pictures! The old Jon & Kate was on again the other day when they stayed at the Lodge. It is just so nice to get any glimpse of it that I can.

Loved the pics Stopher! Wish I was there right now too!

I just saw part of that old Jon & Kate episode a month or so ago. She must have some redeeming qualities (I'm not a fan) because as they were packing up to leave she said when vacation is over she's usually ready to go home but not this time. She just didn't want to leave our beloved Lodge! I know exactly how she feels.

Yes, the last day at the lodge is always a sad day, time to try, but not succeed, in taking it all in visually one last time (that stay anyway).

Via Napoli Pizzeria?

Any body planning on trying out the new Pizzeria in Epcot? Being a native New Yorker, which every one knows NY has the best pizza outside of Italy and to all my fellow groupies in the Midwest who insist on making that alien thick crust pizza, I have my fingers on the monitor attempting a Vulcan mind meld as we speak, do not resist.

It looks interesting.

Live long and prosper.

Fascinating. (said in best Spock monotone).

Please don't lump all us Midwesterners with those folks in the Windy City. The locally most favored pizza continues to be thin crust. However, we are open to anything that calls itself pizza and will give it a shot!

Since we haven't made our ADR's for our December stay, my guess is we'll be eating bagels in the room for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Maybe I can get some pizza sauce and mozzarella to melt on them!

We might check it out when we're there in 2 more days!!! It kind of depends on how long the lines are (I heard no ADRs during the soft opening) and if they can accommodate gluten free for DS10.

I'll report back if we go.

Now THAT sounds like the best birthday. Mr Muush is always kind to me for birthday wishes.
Maybe for my next milestone I can talk him into DL.

So sorry for your friend. And I agree, the pictures were great. Thanks Stoph.

I loooooooove thin crust pizza. Anyone ever tried the Papa Murphy's delite? Yumm. I am sure Mr Muush will want to try this new pizza place. There are not any good pizza places at Epcot, they need one.

Granny! Bagels for breakfast at VWL is my idea of heaven! Well, that and a pink grapefruit and a good cuppa Joe.


My dear friend Norm lost his battle yesterday. He only lived 3 months after receiving the diagnosis. My poor friend has a long road ahead of her, in that she will miss her husband of 34 years, and their daughter will miss her Dad.
