Part of our disappointment was their fault and part of it ours. When we checked in, there were several groups of about 8 waiting to be seated. As we waited, these two really hot Italian looking guys came in. They said they had several people checking to see what restaurants could get them in the quickest for a party of 8. The girls that worked there said they could seat them right away. As they took them to a table upstairs, the men got on their phones and started calling the other people in their part (I assume). My DH was upset they seated those people that just walked in the door without an ADR in front of group their same size that kept talking about having to wait after their ADR time.

When they seated us, they took us to the bar area. They sat us near a window where they tables are taller than normal tables, the chairs are taller as well, and they are squished closs together. I didn't think it would work for us, but I always let my DH decide if he like a table or not. We are both Pooh sized. I am about a size 1XL-2XL (depending on the brand), and my DH is a 6XL. I knew I should have spoke up when he didn't, but I didn't. They tried to seat a couple of parties at the table behind my DH. They were not able to b/c of how far back his seat was. Which embarassed my DH each time they attempted to put a party at that table. After three parties refused the table, they finally stopped trying to put people at it. Then we ordered the Louis Fulton's Ultimate Crab and Lobster Experience. Neither of us had ever had a whole lobster and I thought it would be fun. I was starving before, but we both lost our apetites after we saw the tamale. We had to force ourselves to eat b/c we didn't want to leave that much food uneaten. When we left, my DH said his feet hurt really bad. He said they felt like he had used them to hold himself up in the chair the entire meal.

If we went back, we would not let them give us a table like they did, and we would not order a whole lobster. I did think they had the most amazing red potatoes though.

First thing we did was head to the UK Pavilion in EPCOT to buy an Arsenal jersey!
Trey's try outs are always the week before we plan to go also. He has already staked out the UK Pavilion for his Tottinham jersey! What a great way to celebrate making the team!

Happy Dance!!

Yesterday I booked my June 8-June 14 trip at POFQ!!

We're celebrating my parent's 40th wedding anniversary. (They honeymooned in the Magic Kingdom in 1973!)

Our hope is to get a Pin we can use to upgrade to a Villa at OKW.

Just had to share my happy news!

Victoria & Alberts on their actual anniversary. Also, we are eating at signature restaurants during our stay (we're foodies!). Fulton's, CRT, Brown Derby, Le Cellier, and Citricos. Also getting Dessert Party ressies for Wishes.

Also, we are getting them an in-room celebration (I'm leaning toward the From Mickey and Minnie with Love package).

Since I'm the huge planner of the family, I'll be their personal VIP tour guide! I'm so excited to give them a trip of a lifetime!!

I just have a feeling they are not going to be giving out fd pin codes for June based on the offer that is out right now for Jan-March. My guess is % off the room will be offered. What is everybody's guesses?

Not sure about PINs, but I'll bet the GP discount will be the S/P/D promo (adults get DP at kids' prices and pay kids' tickets prices) or a room only discount; however, I have a feeling that it will be 5% less than what it is for January thru March -- I think it will be 30% off of deluxes, 25% off of mods, etc.

I woukld love a room only for the Poly. That will be the only way we can stay. However free dining for 5 isn't bad either.

Time is ticking!

Was there a minimum night stay or did it require buying tickets?

Thanks,
