Almost forgot! With some help from my mom and grandmother, I found my orange Disney cup!

So glad Janet landed and is safe!


I just want to say that I can do on-line check-in in just 5 more days! OMG time needs to slow down because I'm already sad that my trip is going to end soon. How crazy is that?

And ESPN is fun, but not as much of a quiet break as the other TS in the area.
We would love to do Yachtsman but we are on the dining plan and want a one-credit dining. We have never dined in the Swan nor the Dolphin. Are they on the plan? I thought about going to WS at Epcot. What do you suggest there?

Dani, I get it! But still very excited for you! Just go easy on me when you come back with glowing reports of Poly CL, since I'll have to wait for it until after the January refurb.

We love Chefs de France. I know Tutto Italia and Via Nappoli get good reviews, but as an Italian NYer we never eat Italian on vacation. We have it too much at home.

Thanks! I will be live reporting, but IDK if you'll want to read it! I'm sure the wait will be well worth it though. I can't believe they are closing CL for the entire time they refurb Hawaii. You'd think they would just relocate it or something.

Too bad about the dining plan and signatures - we've been using TIW lately, so I sometimes forget about the dining plan structure. Unless something changed recently, Il Mulino and Bluezoo only accept TIW and not DP. Boo!

Our favorite one-credits in World Showcase are probably Via Napoli and Chef's de France. Our two older boys currently identify Chef's as their favorite restaurant in Epcot. I'm also coming back around to San Angel Inn, because I think it's improved since La Hacienda appeared. I like both. For our quick MNSSHP trip, we have ADRs for Via, Chef's and San Angel. Between those three, I think it just depends on which menu you prefer. We just love dinners in World Showcase, Illuminations and a stroll around the Boardwalk in the evening. Then you'll usually find my husband at the B&C take-out ordering chocolate malts for boys who should already be sleeping!

P.S. Not living there anymore, but grew up in NoVa!

I'm glad you posted about SA and CdF. I used to love going to SA back in the day. I don't know what it is about the ambience, but I have such a soft spot for it. The last few trips we haven't gone back. We tried LH last summer and I wasn't impressed with their limited menu. If you've found SA has improved, then I would give it another try. The last time we were there the service was poor and the meals rather meh. I'd love to go back to the 'old' SA again.

And, we last tried CdF years ago and it wasn't memorable. The service was indifferent, (much like eating in France)! I think I will also give it another try if your kids love it.

Hello all!!

Pixarmom: love the old school orange cup!! I am so getting one of these in Sept!

dani: How are you feeling today?? BTW, I don't have a virus, but have the odd combination lately of grey hairs springing up and acne on my chin. Very attractive.

MM:waiting for another update!

So....DH and I have a little weekend getaway planned Aug 31 - Sept 2. We are flying to Nova Scotia for a wedding with another couple, sans kiddos. Nice!! I am originally from there, and have decided we should go a day early so I can show DH where I grew up, some of the sights of Halifax too. BUT, with the change fees from the airlines, extra night hotel, extra day rental car, extra day of food....we cannot afford it!!! I am sad, I really wanted to do this.

Okay, vent over. We are lucky to be going at all, and the girls will be well looked after by my parents and DH's aunt. So anyway, not sure what the point of the rant was but I feel better.

Hope you all have a good Sunday tomorrow!! Oh BTW we picked up the cutest Minnie Mouse backpacks today for the two younger DD's! I will try and post a pic of it. I want one too!!

Jen

You have a GORGEOUS family! What adorable kids. You look so cute at MNSSHP.

I love the backpack! I need to get a new one for DS for September. I should do it while they are on sale.

I am feeling a little better, just stressed as all get out! At least pencil neck- err, I mean my boss- is on vacation and when he gets back it's MY TURN! I don't have to see that jerk for FOUR WEEKS!

Thanks for the kind words!! Nice...four weeks! A vacation within a vacation! The backpack is from Walmart....not that your DS would want a Minnie Mouse one anyway! But it was weird, it was the only Disney one in with a bunch of other black ones. A sure sign Disney is calling!

How are the mouth sores? Hopefully they are going away for you.

It was meant to be! I like to get them from the Disney store because they have the matching lunch bag. I'm super lame like that.

The sores are a little better today. I'm taking Advil every 4 hours to help with the pain and I eat Italian ice when the pain gets bad. That seems to alleviate it for a while.

I got 3 of our tickets today! (I ordered them all separately because I get $3 back per order. I have 2 more tickets to receive) I CAN'T WAIT TO GO TO DISNEY!!!

jenny - Love the family pic! Too bad we aren't in the World at the same time. I love when I see a family with 3 girls. I always tell my boys they are their future wives and then try to stifle laughter as they fall on the ground feigning death. Of course your girls are gorgeous, but elementary school boys, ya know?

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!
