Pics


Pizza at Via Napoli, MMMMMMM

Caseys half eaten spaghetti


Whoopi filming for The View in front of Gastons Tavern

The new train station in Fantasyland. Love all the additions to this area and cant wait for the Mine ride to open!


Me and Casey trying a LeFous Brew from Gastons. A odd combo of Apple Juice, passionfruit juice and roasted marshmallow. Very sweet but good. I think they are trying to compete with Butterbeer from IOA, and each is unique for sure.
Upcoming, a few random shots from the new Little Mermaid ride at MK. I enjoyed it.

T and I are considering adding on enough pts to at least get a studio for our weekend incoming nights. We just feel so much more at peace in DVC lodging than we do at other resorts. Call us DVC snobs

Heading to Epcot today to do some things we havent done yet. Test track opened yesterday for a little while, I think. We heard it running and the lights were on, but we were on WS side the whole time.

For those that want to see CP, with no dining package, it seems the best time is last show, less popular narrator, at least thats my observance. Whoopi had the place packed 3 shows, Andy Garcia last night, could have gotten a good seat last show.

i will post pics soon, I promise. T has em uploading as I write.
I refuse to stay at a value anymore. I call them 'the accidents'.

Now we stay at a LBV hotel, great beds, convenient location and $40 or so a night. We usually get there late, so it is actually easier than going to a WDW resort. But I can understand why you would add the points!

Great tip for CP, JT, thanks. We don't buy the package anymore, for a host of reasons. I love Andy Garcia!

Loving all the 'world' reports - keep them coming groupies!!! Those of us that aren't able to go this season are living through you!
We almost made it there this year. By which I mean I went to the pains of transferring VWL pts into my acct specifically so we'd have the 11 month booking advantage. I booked, but school schedules just didn't work out with DD starting college this year, and I just couldn't go without her (...yet, I'm sure that will change in time )

Jimmy, Your pics are wonderful... but that Pizza ... looks amazing for a WDW pizza! ... can almost smell it. Did it taste as good as it looks? Will have to make an attempt to gather the kids there next trip. No one in this family can say no to pizza.

OK Muushka, fill me in, curious, what is an LBV? I am showing my ignorance here And our friends from back home enjoyed the CP with Andy Garcia. They said at one point, he turned and asked the choir if they could sing the previous song one more time because it was so moving

twinklebug glad you are enjoying the pics, and yes, the pizza was very yummy. It was the Piccante(I believe)

So sorry JT, Lake Buena Vista. You're not ignorant, I'm lazy!!

Andy Garcia, love what he did requesting that song again. We saw him the first time he did CP many moons ago.
You could tell he loved the music, he was really keeping the beat!

Thanks Jimmy for the pictures! Looks like great weather! December can be cold and rainy but I'm seeing a whole lot of sun in your photos.

tea pot - we're going to miss you, too! Our Groupie meet won't be the same without you.

We're on a countdown now.... better get back to packing

We'll be at VWL! If you have to "go" there are worse places to be!

JT - thanks for all the pics. Excitement is definitely building here. Only 15 days to go! Hoping to have a mini meet with Granny during our stay & fingers crossed we'll finally get to be Flag Family. It's been our experience that the 8th day is usually available. This time we'll actually be there on the 8th day!

Enjoy your trips all that are there now or headed there soon!

We rode TT yesterday and it was really cool. It reminded me of being inside a video game, like Tron. Very neat concept, IMO. Very futuristic.

Ate at Biergarten, and it was yummy. I had a Spitzy(Sp.)in my DDs honor as she couldnt be there, having that nasty ol work to contend with. It is a mixture of orange soda and coke. Biergarten is among her faves and she loves that drink.

Our friends from back home went to US yesterday so we are curious as to their take on it, like us back in Mar., this was their 1st time there.

I got roped into the Ziti Sisters show in Italy. If any of you have ever seen the show, I was the superhero, then embarassingly got to re-participate as the statue of a man holding a fig leaf in front of...let me just say I dont embarass easy, so I will post photos instead to explain

We also went to the Merry Member Mixer. This was our 1st time and really enjoyed it. Lots of folks there but it was well organized. Walked right in, got our hot chocolate and cookie, hung around a bit and got our ornament. Didnt see anyone I knew. WD, I know you mentioned you folks were attending so if by chance I walked by and didnt speak, forgive me, I get a little oblivious in crowds.

DUH Which hotel(s) do you prefer? Our 1st trip we stayed at the Grovesnor which I think has changed names since. I remember it was '99 and Bill Clinton was next door at the Wyndam maybe. We left out early that AM, police everywhere, then found out he was nearby, we joked we could go see him instead, but everyone agreed we would rather see Mickey instead Nothing political intended, but still feel the same today!!

JT, thanks for the lovely pictures. as always, just what I needed. We enjoy via napoli, it's one of our favorites. Have yet to eat at Germany

Muush, definitely agree with you on the values, We tried to stay at allstar one year when we had the chance to get to Orlando 2 days earlier than our BC stay. with 3 men, all over 6ft tall and 2 out of the 3 hoovering around 250lbs, I seriously thought a homicide was going to take place just for some extra floor space. I love though that disney has them.

Di, Teapot and horselover, have great trips and be safe. Horselover send my love to Granny and his family when you guys meet up.
