I watched the last hour or so of his set. His style is very different from Elliot's, it's no longer a jazz theme but more of a piano-accompanied mix of rock/pop standards (he also has stored backing/rhythm tracks on a laptop, and he does requests). He's very good though, just somewhat different to what you might expect if you're used to Elliot's music.

Tom has just set up a Facebook page, www.facebook.com/TomCaseyAtScatCats - which oddly doesn't seem to come up in searches, but that link works - so pop along there and Like him to see his posts.

POFQ is at about 50% now after a batch of around 400 replacement fridges were fitted recently. Will still be a good couple of months before the process is complete though.

Thanks for the update, we check in on 10/19 so hopefully they will all be replaced by then. Or my sister and I can at least get one fridge for the 2 rooms.

We will be back at POFQ on the 19th and cannot wait! Two quick questions about the boat...

If we take it to DTD how far is the walk to Wolfgang Puck Express? (Last time we went to the Wolfgang Puck Cafι the walk was very long!)

One night we are eating at Kouzzina and read it is nice to take the bus to HS and the boat over to the Boardwalk area. Where would we get off by the Boardwalk?

Thank you so much!

The walk from the water taxi stop at the Marketplace to WPE is about 5 minutes. You may be thinking of walking from the West side stop before.

There is only one stop at BW and you can see Kouzzina's just to your left. You will stop at YC and BC first. You can also take the boat from Epcot as well. The boat is near the UK..
