No. It sure doesn't. There is something fundamentally wrong about that.

I didn't notice his scent, but then again I don't have the greatest sense of smell. That does have its advantages, since I work in healthcare!

I am more curious than ever to find out why mine is.

I get it, but then again I don't. It would be nice to be able to get a drink with dinner because there's certainly no BYOB. Maybe that's why none of the table service restaurants are all that great in the MK. Then you don't feel like you're really missing something.

Maybe it has to do with the fact that they keep the park open so late at night. I don't know, but I don't think its ever going to happen.

I definitely agree that MK should sell some sort of adult beverage. I know that Walt didn't want it that way, but I don't think it would take away from the atmosphere and family friendliness. And all of the other parks serve alcohol. Also, now won't there be three taverns in MK, all of which are dry?

That presentation was hysterical! His background is in psychology and he obviously knows human nature pretty well.

And the dorm rooms were pretty cool. The interesting thing was that the room configurations were all slightly different. Not just the furniture, but the layout of the room.

A dry tavern is a misnomer. It makes no sense. There is part of me that agrees with preserving Walt's vision, but there's another part of me that says there had to be a loophole in the logic.

You can thank C for that. Unfortunately, the whole subtitle won't fit. Not enough space.

I am a dog. Enough said Actually it was pretty spot on it reads:

The Dog will never let you down. Born under this sign you are honest and faithful to those you love. You are plagued by constant worry (pretty much), a sharp tongue (oh yeah ) and a tendency to be a fault finder () You would make an excellent businessman, activist, teacher or secret agent

This thing about no liquor in the MK reminded me of something that occurred in Fort Wilderness. We were camping there & we visited the outpost store. My DH wanted to buy a bottle of beer which the store was selling. Our kids were with him, so they refused to sell him the beer. They stated that they couldn't be sure that he wouldn't give the kids some beer! WTH? I can tell you that DH was very upset about that. It was a weird sitiuation!

I agree, MK really needs to have some alcohol of some kind...wine with dinner in the TS restaurants, a beer stand here or there. Nothing hard, just...something!

Amazing Flower and Garden pics! I love that they put strawberry scent around Lotso!

Nice Pics, Christine! ITA It doesn't make sense you can get alcohol everywhere but MK. It's not like they have bars or anything - they act like you only have children with you at MK.

That's just weird! Did he look really young or something? Maybe they didn't realize he was the father.

Ah but I think if you compare it to the Sherpa picture from her fall trip, she's downsized.

Oh dear. I am a Horse.

The horse personality is often willing to give as well as expecting a lot of liberty. These people are extremely independent and confident. The horse person is very quick-witted and is right in there with you before you have had a chance to finish what you are saying: he's on to the thought in your mind even before you've expressed it. In general, these people are gifted. But in truth they are often more cunning than intelligent - and they surely know that. They adore being in the center of everyone's attention, but more they like to be recognized for their skills and are easily flattered. On the other hand these people have an honesty and genuine warmth which attracts lots of people and helps them make new friends. People as a rule confide in horse person because he/she is sincerely interested in their thoughts and feelings and is able to help with both a wise words and an action, but there is a small problem about it - the horse person is so excited by new discoveries that it is difficult for them to keep a secret. This is not something that arises out of malice or revenge - sometimes they just cannot help themselves.

It is easy to inspire such person by new ideas and he/she tends to act on them without delay, carried away by the excitement of the moment. But it is also important to remember that there is a danger for horse person to be too impulsive and it may cause some problems in the future. And if they do not see the result of their efforts, it is rather natural for them to turn their attention to a new project and head off once again, brimming with new ideas. The horse person is always ready to offer good advice and can be very persuasive, but his/her confident and carefree approach hides inner doubts. Those who know such person well recognize this, and offer the support and reassurance he/she needs.


Except I CAN keep a secret. Most of the time.

OK, I was curious so googled what year I was born in. You're going to love this. I was born in the year of the PIG!!!!!!!!!!!! That's right - PIG!!!!!

People born in the Year of the Pig are chivalrous and gallant. Whatever they do, they do with all their strength. For Boar Year people, there is no left or right and there is no retreat. They have tremendous fortitude and great honesty. They don't make many friends but they make them for life, and anyone having a Boar Year friend is fortunate for they are extremely loyal. They don't talk much but have a great thirst for knowledge. They study a great deal and are generally well informed. Boar people are quick tempered, yet they hate arguments and quarreling. They are kind to their loved ones. No matter how bad problems seem to be, Boar people try to work them out, honestly if sometimes impulsively. They are most compatible with Rabbits and Sheep.



I guess this explains why I don't have hundreds of FB friends. lol
