If you have any specific questions, PM me. We stayed there many moons ago (10 years or so) but I don't imagine too much changed.

We need to start thinking about what day a meet would be good.
Thanks!!

Portofino is an outstanding hotel! Beautifully themed with the piazza, fountain and waterways. Just a remarkable hotel and one of my favorite spots in Orlando that isn't named Wilderness Lodge. Enjoy your planning and trip.

One more cruise through the ol' thread, as today is the last morning I can calmly participate before I must drag DiznyDi off to the south pacific.

DS and future DIL have seen a few plans get changed in the last few days. The chaplain they have been meeting with told them last Tuesday that he can no longer marry them, as the Army had made other plans for him, so he is off to a training venue this coming weekend.

So DS and FDIL began their search for a pastor that was not tied up Sunday Morning. Yeah, Sunday morning; somehow most seem to be tied up - funny. They have connected with a justice of the peace who happens to be free (said he wasn't doing anything or going anywhere Sunday morning - geeze) I'm sure he is a nice fellow.

DiznyDi will fill all in, as she travels with her iPhone and is on the DIS lots during our travels together on that thing.

All bags are packed, including the suitcase of mints.

Aloha. . . . .

Aloha DiznyDi & Dad! Safe travels. Enjoy those mints!

So we saw TS3 yesterday. Loved it! As promised the end was a real tear jerker. I tried not to cry, but I was not successful. DS12 actually was tearing up too, but don't tell him I told! The ending really was perfect. They couldn't have ended it any better IMHO.

That's about it in these here parts. Trying to figure out what to do to occupy our time this summer. I'm only 3 days into the vacation & I'm already bored! Only 105 days until the next trip. At least my countdown is shorter than WildernessDad's.

Have a good day groupies!

Dizny Di & Dad....hope the rest of the week goes a little less stressfully than the chaplain issues. Aloha, and best wishes.


And I can't believe they disallowed ANOTHER U.S. goal....this is just crazy!

Must go to my VWL spot in my mind....must be calm...must be relaxed....

Test results are not back on that yet but the poor girl is only 29. Lots of pixie dust and prayers are needed here.

Had an incredible massage at GF, attended the member open house at top of the world lounge (gorgeous!) and got to be on the expert panel! Also spent some time visiting my guide. Had an amazing dinner at California Grill. Anyone ever have hawaiin white tuna? Yum! Visited our beloved lodge. My family LOVES the wings at territory lounge! Saw the electrical parade and new fireworks show. Both great. Will post photos later.
Sounds Wonderful Looking forward to the pictures thanks in advance

Between watching those two flicks, teaching her how to drive a riding mower (albeit on my lap), going fishing, and cooking dinner together (she makes a mean spaghetti sauce), it was a most wonderful Father's Day weekend.

And. I'm looking forward to getting down to VWL in a few months. . .
Hey sleepydog I don't know if I said welcome yet so Welcome Home and you sound like a great groupie dad to me!

Thanks for the warm welcome, and I take great pride in being a dad, so I appreciate your comment. It seems like I'm in good company here.

Glad to hear that! Things are still a bit up in the air as to whether we will do it in Dec. or not. We will do at a some point for sure.

I totally agree! That was the ending I was hoping for and I think I would have been disappointed if it ended differently.
