Hope everything is going ok with your mom, and that your drive wasn't too bad. I hate driving in traffic, too, I do anything I can to avoid it!

When we ate at Cape May in December and then were going to DHS after, I thought of just leaving the car at the BC parking lot, but I thought we might get in trouble or something! Good to know you can do that!

Great update!! Ahh, I'd give anything for a Ditch margarita right now. I love that place. La Hacienda looks so pretty, but I'm too nervous to eat there, I look at the menu and I think it's way too authentic Mexican for me! When I think of Mexican food, I think nachos and quesadillas!

All the Christmas decorations around the World are so pretty! That would have been a really nice PP picture, it's too bad it's so out of focus!

I love the decorations at the Beach Club, I took a hundred pics of that carousel too! Did you go to the Yacht Club? It is SO amazing in there for Christmas! I know everyone says the WL is the best place to stay for Christmas, but I think the Yacht Club is, I just felt SO Christmasy in there when we visited...if we go again in December (which I'm really hoping to do next year!) I will definitely be staying at the Yacht Club!

I just tried my first avocado margarita too!! They are pretty filling! But very good! I was also tempted by the cucumber one...

Hope everything is well with your mom!

all caught up Mary Ellen! I have been reading on my nook, and I can't reply there, so finally I finished up tonight. DH is snoring and the dog is groaning at me occasionally to turn out the darn light. silly puppy I'm on dis!

I am bummed that we will more likely cross on the highway in June! so sad. but your extended trip sounds great, Disney time and some relaxing beach time after. I was hoping to get at least a few hours at the beach on the 9th, but we shall see how we all feel about breaking up the drive. first stretch will be to NC, then second stretch to PA.

Your pictures are all so great. That is one awesome photo on SM with the water all around. very cool.

So glad to see pics from both LTT lunch & La Hacienda == we will be eating at both places in June. did not realize there was so much seafood at La Hacienda. I am glad because Colin loves seafood, and that is our first meal in DisneyWorld (well ok we will probably have drinks and a sandwich at Hurricane Hannahs for lunch so our second meal

I hope your mom is doing okay with the new meds. I am sure you have researched them all - My MIL takes coumadin, and I had to take heparin after my c-section --- have your mom steer clear of vitamin K veggies -- broccoli and greens, or at least monitor intake. it can mess with the coumadin.

bummer that you missed your DisMeet at HS...it is strange how early they close the parks sometimes. I wonder how they figure that out? must be based on average attendance i guess. It did not look esp packed in your pics.

ok off to bed now...its late for me. Hopefully this will give me good Disney dreams (note: do not fall asleep watching ghost adventures unless you want weird beetlejuice type dreams )

Hope everything turns out okay with your mom.

I did have to laugh when you said they were stuck in the third scene of CoP!

That roast beef sandwich sounds fabulous, and what a fun meet with Jess and her crew!

I love the OKW decorations -- actually, I love all the decoration pictures you have taken!

"You and everyone else!" I hope they don't say that to us this summer.

Loved your pictures from the BC and of the carousel. That is the one resort we missed seeing in November.

Looks like you still had a fun evening even when plans got changed. I hate when I do that.

Thanks Tina! The drive wasn't bad and my mom went home today. I'll be going back up on Friday to take her to the doctor's again.

I loved commenting on TRs. Its too hard for me to read and not comment.

A lot of people lay claim to the BC. You are definitely not alone! But there's plenty of BC to go around!

Oct???? When????? F&W?????? Spill.

.
I agree that the mood is set the minute that boat leaves dock. I love San Angel Inn. It does look like the middle of the night all day long.

I also love the fireworks in the ceiling. So festive!

I'm almost afraid to ask what Mark does during that ride. I like the spot with the big oil drilling platform. It just feels "real" to me! And a little creepy!

Oh Cynthia - that sounds terrible. Your exSIL sounds like she's a tad selfish and out of touch. Who expects a new mother to entertain them.

I knew they would enjoy La Hacienda. Denny and Nick are "good" eaters. They like a wide range of food.

Yeah - I was shocked at the 8pm close time although I know they occasionally close that early on Fantasmic nights.

I am afraid the small ones won't make enough. I like my animal print Mickey head mug full.
Good to know about the pods versus the pouches. That's a lot of coffee with one pouch. I like my animal print Mickey mug filled as well.

Thank goodness. If we're lucky enough to go back in July, I think that's where we'll head. Or back to CSR, if I don't want to spend that much money.

Anyway, because of the AP situation, I'm taking my mom down for Food and Wine, which I know she'll love. We're going one of the two weekends after Columbus Day weekend, so October 12-14 or the following weekend. I'd like to see if I can work in a Monday, too. But I'll probably only work in Friday. But I'll definitely be on an early flight Friday and very late Sunday, so I can really get three days out of it.

When are you going?

He just repeats "Maelstrom" over and over in a very funny voice. And that mural at the beginning gets me every time.

She did it twice- once for the Contemporary and then GF. I had a co - worker who used to say instead on going to hell, he would say he was driving the bus to hell, since of course he was never alone in his behavior, but he was always the worst. I would say Anita was driving the bus this time. I still can't believe she got through. She has the face of an angel.

When I called to try and make reservations for the dinner package, and there was nothing even the CM commented on how popular he was. Oh well, I learned my lesson. The CP really was very very nice, but I don't think I'll do it again unless there's someone I really want to see. We jam packed those four days like we never did before. I thought we'd be able to relax by the pool in the 'spare time' we had. Ha! Not a chance! I keep meaning to start a TR because it really was a wonderful vacation, but I haven't gotten all my pictures downloaded yet.

Hope you are having a fabulous day!

I like the Norway ride and the movie is OK but they really do need to update it.

The food at La Hacienda was really good. I definitely recommend it. My kids have always liked the boat ride in Mexico. They DON't like IASW. Perhaps its the music?

I haven't seen the Norway movie in forever. We entered the theatre just as the movie was ending. Oh darn! Denny said, "Aren't we going to stay for the next one?"

"Huh?" I just kept walking.

Exactly. Plus what if I did just want to see the Xmas decorations. That could happen.

I guess that CM was gearing up for the big Christmas onslaught. We actually had our name checked later in the week, but you'll have to wait for that.

Stop - you use photobucket quite well. I actually got someone to tell me how to do it, but photobucket is A LOT quicker!

Thanks Jen. Traffic is a bear, that's for sure. Surprisingly I timed it really well so I only got in traffic back here in Delaware.

Mom is doing OK, but it looks like I'll be going to her next several appointments with her.

Of course you can. What if you were staying off site and just wanted to go there for a meal? What if you didn't have a park pass - you couldn't park at Epcot and go through the park. I think people on the boards sometime making the parking a big deal like you are detracting from some other guest 's experience because you took up a spot. And there were plenty of spots.

I hear ya on the food. sometimes I prefer just plain old americanized quesadillas to the authentic stuff, but their food is really good. I'm sure you could find something you liked.

I love the decorations at the Beach Club, I took a hundred pics of that carousel too! Did you go to the Yacht Club? It is SO amazing in there for Christmas! I know everyone says the WL is the best place to stay for Christmas, but I think the Yacht Club is, I just felt SO Christmasy in there when we visited...if we go again in December (which I'm really hoping to do next year!) I will definitely be staying at the Yacht Club!
I am bummed about the group picture. That could have been a great pic! Oh well. Better luck next time.

No - I did not go to the YC. I should have. I bet I would have LOVED it. didn't even think about it at the time because I think we were all pretty much done for the day. That's the problem with a short trip - never enough time!

MEK, hope everything is going okay with your parents.

Loved the last update. The boys -- Jeff (Mary's husband) and Andy (our son) hit the Ditch and had the "Flight" of tequila shots when we were there in September...actually they had "two" flights.

Glad that your "boys" enjoyed your choice of dinner venues.
