You're right, I probably bailed on the Lew Zealand joke too quickly.

Hey Brian, I saw that picture of Roy Disney and Mickey Mouse from One Man's Dream in someone else's TR recently and I thought that the picture just didn't look right without you in it.

You'd get along great with James then...he does too. And he said these were perfect. My fish with that potato-wrap was fantastic.

Your picture of the inside of the FF is just perfect. I love it. I never get a good picture in there, just the ceiling.

Everyone's entrees looked relish. So glad everyone enjoyed their meals. That cheese plate looks so good. I heard it was yummy and there's the proof.

I love the location for Illuminations. Those lights look so cool in the pictures. Where exactly was that. I want pictures with those lights.

After reading your update I think I might have to put Flying Fish on our restaurant do list. So many restaurants so little time. Guess it is time to plan another trip.

The Boardwalk is a great place to stay. If we did not own at VWL it would be BWV. You definitely need to try it

I thought of you, you love some item-of-interest in your pictures. It was the area to the left of the Rose & Crown.

That's basically what I do too. But I've noticed that things like quote marks that are angled (you know how the beginning quote marks are angled differently than the ending quote marks?) copy in okay (ie. with the angle) the first time, but if I edit the post they get messed up -- either deleted altogether or replaced with some other strange character. (No, not Marv ) It's very frustrating.

I know the feeling! And then you go to these restaurants and the family wants to go back, so you have an even harder time adding new ones as the "must do" list gets longer.

It's a high probability for next time.

Hi Deanna!

Are they more like "Despicable Me" minions or "Megamind" minion?

Since they went "signature" I found the quality of the food to go way down. We were not pleased with our dinner there in 2011 and I doubt we'll be back anytime soon since we found Yachtsman.

Hello! I kind of fell off the DIS-earth for the last several months. But I am finally back and actually caught up on your TR!!!

Wow - the all-girl tea party looked like so much fun. The GF pictures are amazing. We will be heading there for a meal (at 1900 Park Fare) for the first time during our upcoming trip. I canít wait to see that resort in person!

The nighttime pictures at AKL are amazing! I love the one of the little giraffe sitting down - they sure are bendy!

Your AK day looked like a lot of fun despite the rain.

Your Flying Fish meal looked amazing. We are going to dine there for the first time this year as well - I canít wait!!!

The IllumiNations pictures are amazing! I donít think the show looks that good in person even.

Phew! I can't believe I actually managed to catch up!

Thatís good information. Although, Iíll still have to try LeCellier one of these days to at least check it off the list.

Hi Roni! No worries, Iím glad that you were able to get back on and are caught up. I was holding off on posting too much just for you!

The ladies really loved their Tea there. They made some really nice memories and Iím glad that they were able to do it.

Iím a little intrigued by 1900 Park Fare, if only for the Steppesisters -- from the TRs Iíve read, they provide some really fun interactions with the guests!

Thank you! Yes, I suppose that the giraffes need to be kind of bendy, being so tall. Theyíre the pony-pal-Pokey (from Gumby fame) of the animal world.
