Oooh...maybe we could share the onion rings, get the fried chicken and Mark coudl eat my veggies? I think this is a plan too.

A while back '50's went to one menu for both lunch and dinner, so they don't have any sandwiches on the lunch menu anymore. The main items I recall are the fried chicken, the pot roast, and the meatloaf.

Thanks Glenn.

And play with your electronic gadgets.
Does my Iphone qualify for this?

Thanks, Rosie for your thoughts. I don't think the steak is good at most of those types of restaurants at Disney.

My husband cracks me up too...but for different reasons. Seriously, I'd take TOT over RnRC any day after surgery. But that's me.

You are right...he feels safe.

Michelle, I am so sorry that I'm behind on your TR. I'm going back to it after I do my update. I did catch up on quite a few, but I know that I have to catch up on yours and Queen's for sure. Please forgive me.

Sampler Platter -- Mark -- check; fried chicken -- me -- check (unless we share the fried chicken).

So when I last left you, we were headed to OKW to swim and/or nap before going out for the evening. After we've rested and cleaned up, we will be heading here:

I'm sure we'll stop for one of these:

From there, I know my hubby will be hungry, so we'll probably go to eitehr Cosmic Ray's or Columbia Harbor for some dinner before we start hitting the attractions.

For sure, I know we have to at least walk past the new area where the two Dumbos are (we might save this for our EMH's morning to ride). But we'll be sure to do a few of our favorites:

And this:

(so glad it is open again)

Mark will want to see the Tiki's:

And we'll definitely be watching Wishes, my ALL TIME favorite Disney night show:

We'll see how long we make it and what else we can get in.

Up next, we're on the look out for some monkeys and some giraffes

I have a pretty good idea which restaurant it is that you're referring to, even though you are completely wrong.

DW went to 50's on a trip with some friends when she was in HS and I believe she had to go stand in a corner or something. Apparently it has scarred her for life and she refuses to go back.

The evening plans look great! I'm glad BTMRR is open again too. I can't wait to see what you think about the refurb.

I think we will just agree to disagree on this subject.

I have to say that if I were your wife and I was put in the corner, I probably wouldn't go back either.

I can't wait to ride BTMRR; I've not heard a lot about the refurb...don't know if they changed anything. It will be interesting to see.

I like EMH's at the MK...one of my favorite things to do.

Thanks for the prayers. Mark went to the Nursing Home after work and I'm waiting for him to come home with a report.

That sounds like a really nice, low-key evening!

I can't wait to see the new Storybook Circus area. All of the pictures look really cute!

Sounds like a great way to end your day! We went over to see how Mickeystoontown looked now that it's officially changed names and it looked so cute. There were still walls up around a lot of the area in May but you'll get to see it all fresh and new!

I'll continue the prayers for Mark and his family. I hope things went well with this evening's visit.

2014 trip report: Disney dangled the visual weinee and Mickeystoontown gobbled it up! Our two week adventure!

I have been saying lots of prayers for Marks family and for you guys! Hope you are hanging in there and doing ok!

The September trip is coming up so soon, it will be a very much needed vacation and your plans sound awesome so far. Its getting me really excited to read your plans because it means our trip is right around the corner too We havent been on Dumbo in forever, but we are making that one a priority this trip. I am very excited to see the new ride and queue area!

Kathy, I am all caught up now.

I am so sorry to hear about Mark's MIL - that's so difficult for the whole family to work through. I hope that she softens a bit so that she and Mark can connect more in the days and weeks to come. The medications can play wicked tricks on patient's minds.
I will keep you all, esp your brother and MIL, in my prayers.

LOVE the pics of the new house! what a great deck and back yard!

Caught up on your day two plans. We ate at 50's PTC for lunch for the first time in June and LOVED it! Joe and I had the sampler and it just rocked (but good thing Joe liked the greens because while I loved the green beans, I really only like leafy greens in salad unless its spinach). I think of the three things we had in the sampler, the fried chicken really was the best but its not an easy choice.

We found a great spot for lunch/dinner at MK: the Tomorrowland Terrace. apparently its not always open, because this was the first time we ever saw it open. The food was great and as full as it was we did not have a problem finding seating. I will post phots eventually but Joe had a delish chicken pasta alfredo, and I had a lobster roll - first time having this and I was not sorry in the slightest!

starting my TR next!

I have been MIA with one crazy June behind me, and caught up! Thank you for your links.

First, so excited for your stay at OKW again! I am really looking forward to staying there again too, such a beautiful and calm resort.

The t-shirts and effort Mark has gone to for his student brought me to tears! I can see why you are proud of him.

And I skipped the chatter, but I see discussions of Mark visiting his Mom, I recall your previous post (another thread, Facebook? cannot recall) about cancer, I hope all is as good as it can be there. I'll have to go back and read the details that you shared here so I know how to pray.
