"Hi!" from Ft Leonard Wood!

I have to say, the Base is very nice - easy to get around. The buildings we have been in are kept very clean (unlike some other bases I have been! ) Have met some extraordinary soldiers and have been made to feel very welcome (again, unlike some other bases! )

The weather is gorgeous -- heat wave broke and it is very comfortable here. We have the weekend off so will go exploring!

See y'all real soon!

All the hotels near the Base were booked, so we are in Rolla. 2 Panera Breads to choose from!
I'm glad the soldiers have been so welcoming. I don't have much experience with the military, but I always thought they were 'supposed' to be respectful and nice. I'm sorry you've encountered otherwise.

Have a great weekend exploring What do you like from Panera? one of my favorites is the cheese souffle at breakfast, so delicious!

For me that would be a hard choice, I love them both.
We have not done V&As yet... we could always do it next time, and I don't know what I am missing so maybe I would not be too heartbroken yet?

A giraffe came close enough I could have touched it, and if the CMs weren't there I probably would have Planning to do the Wanyama Safari again next year, and would do the WAT again as well. Enjoyed both immensely, no regrets at all.
Oh my... if we do it I will definitely have to sit on my hands! I am about 80 days out and my husband is out of town so I need to talk to him when he gets back about it and can't book a thing until I do. Well, COULD, but shouldn't! Will it all be sold out already I wonder...

Just a quick question i'm hoping someone here can answer. We are going to disney for Christmas staying in a 2br villa. I wanted to bake some cookies one night and have figured I would mix up all the dry ingredients in zip lock bags and bring em with us and then order the wet ingredients from garden grocer. My question is, Does anyone know if they have cookie sheets in the villas?

tia,
Jodi
YES, there is a cookie sheet in the 1br. and larger villa's - here is the ammenities list.

Just want to clarify - as I'm a little confused by this post as to what you mean in regards to the owners locker, but when you buy into DVC you don't "get" an owners locker, you can RENT one from "The Purple Place" - please note though that this place has NOTHING to do with Disney or DVC - ALSO note, Disney / DVC does NOT have anything available for owners to store thier items. Here is the rental quote from The Purple Place -(There is a one time Membership Fee to join Owner's Locker of $75.00 (which includes your Locker and your initial delivery/pickup which we call a Visit) and a yearly storage/delivery plan which you choose. The Standard Annual Plan costs $99.00 per year and includes storage in our climate controlled warehouse and one free Visit per year. Additional Visits are $25.00 each. The Premium Annual Plan costs $179.00 per year and includes storage in our climate controlled warehouse and unlimited visits per year.)

They do take a CC as a place holder, but don't charge anything until after the dinner, and you can change the CC if you want. They have the Wanyama Safari available every night of the week so it doesn't usually book up. Wouldn't hurt to book it now, you wouldn't be out any money and could always change it. I'm not married, so am not used to waiting to check with the hubby.
