Thought someone else would respond but I didn't see one. Sorry. HH is down until mid to late Dec. In the meantime, they have stepped up efforts to get around at SAB to take drink orders. You also have a few other places to hit that are close by for food. Some say the options are better than the old HH. There are pictures a few pages back if you can find a few minutes to go and look for them. You'll see all these options when you get there. Not a big concern. Definately not as conveniant as HH. Don't worry, be HAPPY!

Not who you were hoping to hear from but I will say that when the DW and I ate there a few years ago we had one of the best dining experiences at WDW we ever had (okay, maybe V&A was better, but this was right up there!). It may have been where they seated us (far back in a quiet corner) it may have been the waiter (who I think had a second job as a stand-up comedian) but the food was definately the hit of the evening. We are looking forward to the time when we can return and enjoy it again.

NM, ditto on the other four pages of posts.

Teena, Mickey is quickly reaching the end of the ship. See you in a few weeks.

to this thread and the DIS!!!

There is an activities post on Page 1 of this thread and the activities schedule for October is there (Post 6 or 7, I think). The November schedule won't be released until the beginning of the month, but you will be able to get it when you are there.

We also have a "Be Our Guest" list on Page 1 (Post 13, I think). I'll add you to the list soon and you can look to see who else is vacationing while you are there.

I'm a few days behind on updates, I'll be able to go through and catch up on the last several pages of the thread on Saturday or Sunday.

A BIG old first post Welcome garneyb .....I've seen the activites at the pool but the best way to get a description is go to page one post number four and look at the activities sheet. Zoom in and you can see day by day, hour by hour.

Two weeks at BC!!!!!

Bob and Teena - that looks enjoyable!

We have WL dinner scheduled at Christmas - wanted to see the lodge during that time and what better way to force you over there than an ADR.

Going to do 1900 Park Fare for first time for same reason as above.

Hello to everyone - great jobs as usual keeping us informed better than anywhere else.

Also posting so I can gaze at my ticker

Have a great weekend all....oh yah - Go Aggies - LSU coming to our house....enjoy the hospitality....wish I could be there with my kids to renew the rivalry.

We have an ADR in less than 2 weeks! I can't wait!

And now that I've seen the pictures and read some other comments, I sure am glad the trip is so soon because I really can't wait to visit WL and Artist Point.

Artist Point is amazing. My DH and youngest DS love a good steak and Artist Point did not disappoint . We can't wait to go back in July .

Like all of us, I do love the chaos of Disney, but is also nice to find that little oasis of calm in the midst of it.

We've eaten there a few times. The food is always yummy and the service is top notch.
I agree....Artist Point is a nice, quiet atmosphere and makes for a relaxing and VERY good dinner .

Q: How does Spiderman know that it is time to go to the bathroom?

A: His Spidey Senses start Tinkling.

Monday lunch at Hollywood and Vine with June from Disney's Little Einsteins, Jake the Neverland pirate, Handy Manny and Special Agent Oso. I have no idea who these dudes are but it sounds like fun to me!

Tuesday we are at that heck hole known as Chef Mickeys. I'm planning on amping up the fun by starting a food fight with the kids that run around unattended at this buffet ; )

Wednesday we are at Princess Central, also known as Akershus. This will be my Niece's Bippity Boppity Boutique day. We've been there before and we liked it, so we are happy to go back and my boys are happy because they can eat in peace and not be on the Princess meet and greet hot seat like they were before when the 5 of us went. LOL!!!

Thursday we are at the Garden Grill in the land pavilion at EPCOT with Chip and Dale. This is new for all of us so we are looking forward to it, especially since it's not something we would consider doing with Teens.

Friday we are at the Biergarten in Germany where all the adults will get drunk and the kids will escort our wobbly butts to the buses. This is the day when the older folks plan on getting pushed around the parks in strollers with the little ones doing all of the pushing. Turn about is fair play I say!

Saturday I am thinking Rain Forest Cafe. I've never been but I heard it's noisy in there. My dad is hard of hearing so we plan on seating him right next to anything in there that is roaring or burping. While I'm thinking of it we should plan on putting the teen boys down that end as well. They can get pretty growly and burpy, not to mention gassy, and crabby, as well as stinky, dirty and tired. Hey! I think I've just come up with a set of substitute seven dwarfs!


to everyone!

Love the dining plans!

The Disney Store has more Marvel stuff than they do either Toy Story or Cars! It's rare for the stuff to go on sale but from what I've heard, it's excellent quality Marvel stuff. Lots of Spidey, Hulk, Iron Man and Captain America stuff.....

It's funny because the Marvel stuff brings in not your typical Disney customer.....lots of teenage and young adult men!

NM, your dining plans look fun! Planning a Disney trip always gets my adrenaline pumping and makes me forget about everything else that's going on in my life. Have fun at POFQ! Be sure to check out the food court at POR....it's fabulous!

A: His Spidey Senses start Tinkling.
Loved the joke. I'll be sure to pass that along to my nephew, who is very serious and scientifically minded. His mind will start processing and he will be asking me a million questions like "Where is the spidey sense?" and "why does he need that to go 'pischy' ?" (Pischy = the Hungarian word for tinkle)

Sometimes when I'm feeding him a line or a story he just rolls his eyes at me and runs off. (sound familiar Dee? Amen sistah and mother to teen boys!)

His three year old sister however is no where near being on to me so let the games begin!

I'm figuring that the Marvel heroes (Saw The hulk and Captain America too) were there because of their popularity and the DHS connection.

Good luck with the play and better luck with your teens!
