same here with the ice cream. If and when we can find it open, the two times we've tried it it's been disgusting.

On the other hand, they're apparently not losing business. But I'd be much happier if they had a well run food court where we could grab food any time during the day. I don't need a sit down, disney has plenty. What I need at my resort is good food, quickly.

But I do encourage people to check out the golf food stand by the quiet pool. It's a bit hard to find, but they have really good items. I had a sausage sub last time that was to die for. Better than I've had up here at a sausage cart. DS I think had a hot dog, and dh and I both had beer (In a bottle, not stupid swill from at evergreens) I think they had a lot of other items.

On my way home...booooo. Am in mid south carolina right now. But we did have a good time, of course. Missed meeting up with buzzmom last night. But I know her and her family are having a great time. I will start my trip report in the next week.

I think vacations should be a mandatory 3 weeks (but should only cost 1week)

Hi all, I have another SOG question. My dh and I have four kids, so one or two of them will be sleeping at their grandparent's condo. If we decide to attend EMH would all four kids be able to come? I know you're supposed to show a room key, but do all of the kids have to have one?

Unless they're under 3 they're supposed to each have a key. From what I've heard, cm's aren't checking key cards until you get in a ride line. I'm sure someone will correct that if I'm wrong. I guess all the kids could stay in the park with you, but you all won't be able to ride together if you only have 4 keys.

When we stayed at SOG, they gave us a special card for EMH, DH and I would usually ride together, but if he went on something alone, I handed it to him so he could go through the line. This was last April, so I don't know if they still do it that way or not.

When we were there (sigh, just last week ) our room keys were checked at the gate at TTC in the a.m. for Epcot and MK before we could get in to the monorails or ferry and at the park gates for HS and AK. For the p.m. EMH, our room keys were checked as we boarded the rides. You can ask for as many keys as there are people in the room. It should not be a problem at night, just trade off the keys and half ride at a time. However, not sure how you would work it for the a.m. EMH. Shades did give us these paper cards that were supposedly for the EMH, but we never used them...we were always asked for the room keys. Maybe for the a.m. EMH, some of you can use the room keys and the others can use these paper cards? It is worth a shot. Good luck and have a blast!!!

With God's blessings, we are home safe and sound. And now comes the after-disney-depression. So sad to be home, but am thankful for two wonderful weeks at the World. I will be working on my photos this week and hopefully start my TR next week. Since I didn't take nearly as many photos this year, it should be a little easier. I only took about 2,500 this year. I concentrated more on video this year. Now we will see if I can figure out how to edit video.

Just curious about the Shades room keys; do the CM's actually scan them, or just look at them. Are they anything like the Disney room keys, that are specifically designated for each person to use ?

They just look at them. And unless this has recently changed (absolutely possible) the last time we were there for EMH, they didn't ask us for keys for our littlest one (3 at the time) We never actually get 4 room keys, we only ever get two, as neither DD would ever be allowed to carry one around. Not sure about others' more recent experience at EMH with small (<10yo) kids.

Agreed. They just look at them. And the keys look the same as years past.
