Thanks, that helps me, too. I want to spend some time resort hopping and seeing as many Christmas decorations as I can. Looks like I may be doing this on the Sunday before Mickey's Very Merry Halloween Party and I had a anyway planned to do some resort hopping on the Monday. I suppose we can always finish it off on the last day before going back to the airport.

Thank you! The ones that would be easy for us to make don't seem exciting and the ones that are of course are on days that would be problematic... hmmm! I will go to at least one - can't knowingly go to F&W and NOT after all! Thanks again!

Linda - Thanks for the Fruunch! I think it would be delicious with a healthy splash of a good Spanish cava in it, don't you? Better than a plain old Mimosa!!

Sorry, my friend... Only place I know in Suffolk would be the home of my old college room mate!

ETA: What about this spot??? Although I see that it is closed on Mondays, like so many of our locally owned restaurants around here.

Well it was worth a try.... Any place along the way I am open to also... But since I don't know your college room mate, they might not make me dinner...

I wasn't trying to create drama or keep everyone is suspense. Things just moved really, really fast yesterday with my hubby stopping me in mid-dial to book F&W. Plus it took me awhile to take it all in and process such a major change to a trip that I have been planning for months. Not, that I was upset with him or anything....he just never does anything like this... EVER.

Thank you all for your friendship and caring. I realize that I have as many or more friends on the DIS than in real life.

Ann
Hugs, I'm excited for you - the not knowing what is going on would drive me crazy, but, I'd SO excited too!!!

Hooray! My husband is home and watched a couple of Wanyama videos on Youtube to get a feel for the variety of animals we might see... he OKed going for it! Now I will be nervous until they open up tomorrow morning since they have already closed for the evening but if all goes well we will be doing the Wanyama Safari and Remy on the ship instead of Victoria and Alberts.... Sorry to see V&As go, but that is something we can do anytime and we are not sure when we will be able to stay at AKL or be on one of the new ships again. I am happy!

I am glad you got what you wanted, and true V&As is not going anywhere... But, did you see that they are changing the seating times and the menu?

Just did our on-line check in for AKL. Yay! This is the first time using it. I've always shied away from on line for some reason- guess afraid it will be less magical, less chance of one of those upgrades, room requests won't be met......... But thought I'd give it a chance. How bad can it be, right

First, remember back 3-4 months ago I posted that my DH told me that he would book our airline reservations (a first for him in 29 years of marriage.) Well I had the thought that our kids might be coming to WDW to help us celebrate our 30th anniversary.

DH said he was trying to keep everything a surprise but he had to tell me yesterday morning because I was getting ready to book and pay for Food & Wine special activities. He thought I would put in requests through IPO next week and he had already talked to them so they were not going to book them. Then he learned I was booking yesterday by phone so he had to tell me. So here is my disappointing and yet exciting news.

Our kids are not coming to WDW at all…they can’t afford it and we can’t afford to pay for them all to come. I certainly can understand that.

We are leaving WDW before the Swan & Dolphin Wine and Dine. So I will not be meeting you all and no DIS meet for me. (we need a kicking dirt smilie here) This part has been really difficult for me to take as I was so excited to finally meet you all in person. Along with all of us enjoying seminars, The Ditch, and Wine and Dine with you all as well as all the other possible get togethers with everyone.

Now to the exciting part. I don’t know all the details…but he told me the following. “We are leaving Florida for a second vacation that involves ocean, sand and one of the best times in your life…” So what do you all think it is? He is NOT talking, just smiling a lot! And I haven't seen any hints of things on our credit card or finances. I really don’t think it is a Disney cruise or any cruise as I would need at least one formal nights clothing and so would he....right?

Is it strange to be sad and yet excited at the same time. He told me today when we will be leaving WDW and I have been cancelling days at AKL CL and Shades of Green.

Ann
Can't wait to hear what the surprise is! My vote is a Cruise!

I did not! I thought they always rotated the menu though... I take it this will be a much larger change? Hmm... I better do more research, huh?
