Ah, makes much more sense to me now. Did the crabcake part have lots of nice jumbo lump crabmeat and very little filler (you know, a true Maryland-style crabcake) or was it full of filler with flecks of crabmeat (what the rest of the world thinks is a crabcake)?

OMG...love the pictures of AoA! I want to stay there! Sorry about the awful ordering experience, ugh! I had when resturants can't get it together. The surf and turf burger looks so yummy...adding it to my WDW food list!

As for photo resizing. I upload into photo bucket and then I do my resizing...one picture at a time. I click on the picture that I want to resize from the main album view page (one with all the page pictures showing), once I have just that picture drag your mouse along the top of the picture and a hortizontal menu bar appears which about 1/4 of the way across the picture says RESIZE and I pull down that drop down menu with my cursor to select the size...if it is a picture that I want to showcase then I usually select 640 and all others I select 400. It will ask you once you click on the resize, if you are sure you want to do this (it cant be reversed once resized), click okay and then it resizes. I have noticed that there is a delay between when I resize and post the picture on DIS, usually not more than a day and the picture link resizes. I hope this helps. It takes awhile to do.

LOL, I never noticed that and nobody there corrected me when I ordered. The crab cake had lots of lumps of crabmeat, very little filler. The shrimp on top were mostly fried batter though.

I hope you get to stay there! I went pro because I keep exceeding my monthly limit, so I can chose a different size for web when I download the picture and it will still save the original picture. At least from what I read on their help screen. But I had no idea what size the numbers would end up. Now you have given me a ball park idea.

It's definately worth checking out! More pics of the resort from that evening coming. Just keep in mind that only the Nemo section was opened then.

After we ate, we walked around. For many years we have stayed at Pop and looked across at a vacant building, then at construction. Now we were looking at a beautifully completed area of the resort looking over at Pop Century.

I absolutely loved the picts you took at AoA. Hunter and I think that the resort looks super cool. John? He said it looks too much like a cartoon. Whatever!

Anakin looks like he really enjoyed walking around the resort and posing for pictures.

Thanks for all the awesome pictures of AoA! It looks like an incredible resort! I just love that huge statue of Crush!

Ani looks like he is really enjoying himself - and I am so happy that he has been seizure free for over a month now - that's great! Many continued prayers for him! (((Hugs)))
