Hehe, thank you! I was driving myself batty!

I'm sad I missed the Rancho lunch. I love Rancho, lol.

Is it just me or does anyone else hate that bit "Let the Memories Begin" thing in the middle of the esplanade?

I headed back over to the Carousel Inn to meet Michelle who would be there around 3pm......I needed to get checked in so I could go help with the set up for the Meet-n-Greet.

Michelle got there & we went to check in, but for some reason (we discovered why later in the weekend), Michelle's card wouldn't run......so I ended up putting the room on my card. This ended up being an added stressor for me, as in the past, I have had motels put large holds on my card that didn't get released until after I returned home. I couldn't afford for this to happen this time since I was staying 4 more days after the Girls Trip ended. I got a hold of my bank the next morning & then spoke with Damien (who was our contact for the Meet-n-Greet & is also the assistant general mgr) about my concerns. We decided to just run my card now (not just authorize it, as they did the day before) & hopefully by the time I check out on Monday....I'll know whether or not it ran under the original authorization & not 2 separate transactions. I know, I know......probably way more than you cared about....but needed to emphasize my "hermit" like behavior this weekend. Everything worked out fine.......the transaction never did clear until the day we were coming home....but thankfully it worked exactly the way it was supposed to! Kuddo's to the Carousel for actually charging to the authorization they run......not all places do that....I know from experience!!

Ok, enough of the boring stuff......let's move on to something a little more exciting..........how about a Meet-n-Greet Luau Party!!!!

Michelle & I got up to our room & I loaded the luggage cart with all the stuff I needed to take up for the party : Snack Bags, Name Tags, a few containers to use for the snacks, picture frame, & a few other odds & ends and made our way up to the 5th floor & the room they use for breakfasts. It was a very nice sized room with big windows all around the rounded out front. Great view of the park.....would have been cool to see the fireworks that night, but alas, they were not running.

So here's some of the decorations that the committee put up. (Capri, Wendy, Tammy, Katie) I thought it looked quite festive!!!











Here's the buffet.......Quizno sandwiches, chips, vegies, fruit, etc.:







Here's the famous Jello shots!!



And now we're ready to greet our guests with a lei & their name tags!

I'm sorry......lol (that you love Rancho)

That sign does look like it was just shoved out there to draw your eyes away from the mess at the entrance to DCA. I do love the retro look to it.....but it does seem a bit out of place.

I did see the end of a wedding there on Thursday before we left......lol I guess it's cheaper to do it there, then inside the parks!!

Haha, I don't love everything at Rancho. It's mostly just the atmosphere of the place. It comes in second for me, only behind Blue Bayou which is in a whole different category, period.

Aw, next year I absolutely 100% MUST be there for the meet & greet!

I think I'm biased because I had a bird for a companion one day when I sat next to the bird bath. I love grabbing that table and bird watching. The mexican food at the place next to my house is loads better, but I liked the chicken tortilla soup.

I stressed over the room charges too. We were sharing room costs too and I was afraid I was going to run out of money. I ended up bringing money home. I stressed over nothing but wow.
