Just Back - The Good, The Better, and Sweet Baby James what just fell in my lap???

Just a quick review on our trip from Sept 13-21!

The Place: We stayed at POFQ. LOVED this place!! Love the ambiance, the pool, the room (building 1 backside towards parking lot), the food court, the crowd level (low), everything! We will definitely stay here again.

The Food: As usual, not too shabby. Huge portions of course. We took advantage of the free dining. Tried new places this year, The Garden Grill, Tony's, and Liberty Tree Tavern. The Garden Grill was just...meh. The characters were fun and came around several times, the food was good, but not quite our forte. Tony's I loved! If you like italian food, I think you'll like Tony's. Liberty Tree Tavern was an all around complete LOVE from my entire group. The food was awesome. Sci Fi Dine In we will skip next time...we've done this once before, and this time it took freaken forever to get our drinks, food, desert, bill...everything. It was nuts. The food, eh. It's also tough having a tween who doesn't want (and is too old for)the children's menu, and not quite old enough to want to try new things, or things that just look "eeeeeewww" even if they might be delicious.

The Crowds/Rides: Seemed a touch bit busier than years past, but we've gone towards the end of September before. Wait times were really low, like 5 minutes for Pooh or Snow White, or walk in to meet the fairies...maybe 25 mins max for the headliner rides. One night my husband and daughter went on BTMRR three times in a row, got off went right back around walked right on. We also did this with ToT, got off walked right back around and walked right back on. We finally did Toy Story Mania and I don't get the hype. It was an okay ride, but seriously not worth any more than a 10 or 15 minute wait. That's just our opinion tho.

Weather: HOT. So much so that my mil passed out our 2nd day at Indiana Jones. Ugh...that was scary for the 11yo. She was fine, just hadn't drank nearly enough water for the temps. It was low to mid 90's the first couple of days, then cooled down a tad to upper 80's. Rained a couple of days in the afternoon but we managed to avoid it by being on rides or in shows.

MNSSHP: MUST DO!! Oh man, this was our first year going, hubs and I were Jack and Sally, dd was Fawn, mil was a hippy and fil was Willie Nelson. Everything about this was worth it! The parade was amazing, the fireworks brilliant, ride waits nonexistant...crowded tho!

and, Sweet Baby James, what just fell in my lap???? : On our 2nd ride of ToT of the night, just before the ride ended, during one of the drops, something plopped in my lap. I mean, PLOPPED. I felt it hit my lap, so much so that I thought it was someone's hat, mickey ears, something like that. I reached down to see what it was, and THANK GOD it was pitch dark and I was strapped in....because whatever it was had legs and it WRAPPED ITSELF AROUND MY FINGERS!!!! I shrieked like a demon and flung whatever it was off into the blackness. My apologies to anyone it may have hit
Really, I freaken hate spiders and crawly things...so if I hadn't been strapped in I would have leaped off the ride, and if I could have seen what it was I would have had nightmares for months. I don't want to know what it was. Gah!!!

Any questions or anything else you can think of...just ask!

If that were me I would have become a new permanent guest at ToT or at least my ghost would have, I would have had a massive heart attack right then and there and been gone!

Lizard sounds good - they have those legs they can wrap around. A insect would just scuttle off.

Lizard wouldn't bother me, but spider would. Of course, in the dark, you don't know .

Well, if it was able to wrap its legs around your finger, the good news is that it survived the drop. Good thing your lap was there to break its fall.
