We were there for the Flower & Garden Show in 2011. It was gorgeous, both the show and the weather. We had mostly only traveled in January and February when it was often too cold for swimming. April is a good time to go and we got a discount then, too.

Hubby had the clam chowder for his app, lobster sliders w/fries and bananas foster cheesecake. He loved everything too. A definite thumbs up but we thought service was a little slow.

We had hoped to go to Typhoon Lagoon since it closes tomorrow for refurb, but it was cool and overcast so we decided to pass and instead walked over to Epcot just to wander. Very busy at Epcot but we knew it would be since its Saturday during. F&W. I took lots of pics but cant upload thrum my Kindle so you'll have to wait for those.

What else?? Oh yes...to all of you in Sandy's path, both direct and in the "cone"....be safe!!! We'll be thinking of you. My parents are in MA and in-laws are on the Jersey Shore so we are concerned and hoping for the best!!!!

Sopunds like a great first day. I had the lump crab cakes too at Captains Grille, the lobster sliders sound really good! I think we'll go again next August while we're at YC.

Looking forward to what you think of Flying Fish, we haven't tried it yet.

Have fun at Flying Fish, Kelleigh. We'll be there later this week and can't wait. The risottos are always to die for.

Stay safe all of you in the NE.

That's when we usually go. Love the beautiful flowers. We are doing the opposite of you next year and going in August instead. I know we'll miss the flowers though. Hope you get your discount.

Flying Fish was great. I had the tuna Tartare sushi appetizer, potatoe wrapped snapper entree and the Pb&j creme brulee. All very good. The tuna app was my favorite item of the three. It was oh so good! Hubby had shrimp cocktail, scallops and the risotto entree and sinful chocolate indulgence dessert. I tried his risotto...so rich! He was in heaven with the dessert.

Back in the room now. Long day so we need sleep.

Oh...for anyone arriving soon...parking seems to be hard to come by at the YC. Valet andxself park lots full all day today. The lot in front of the convention center is under construction so I think we are in a BC lot. Extra walking will help with the Deluxe dining. Lol

The first installment of Teena, Jeanne and Lily's trip to Disneyland, CA is up.

First stop: Peggy Sue's Diner and Huntington Beach.

Click here to see the pictures:


California Dreaming


And here are a couple of bonus shots. I haven't posted the Disneyland pictures yet, but there is a new pixie in town!







Speaking of Trip Reports... Have you been over to check out what Flat Ben has been up to lately???

NO??? Well just click on the link in my signature to see how Flat Ben likes The Dark Side! I don't have the Wizarding World photos posted yet, but I will do that later this week.

Flat Ben's trip with AnjieNet starts on Page 10 (there are links in Post 2 of his other adventures so far)

Just wanted to pop in to say stay safe all my fellow East Coast Dissers.

We are battening down the hatches and doing all we can to prepare. Just heard on the weather channel that NJ is "ground zero" for Sandy. Last year the earthquake and Irene this year Sandy - who knew the mid atlantic states would be preparing for hurricanes and earthquakes!

Dee - hope you and your whole area stays safe and weathers out the storm!

I think Tinkerbelle may have a new sister. Lily is just so adorable and a perfect fairy. Hope Teena is having a blast. Sorry we're going to miss her. When we were at Flying Fish last night I told my husband that Teena "who works at the Beach Club" was saying how delicious the risotto was and he perked up about her working at the Beach Club...then I had to tell him that she's on vacation visiting her granddaughter, so we won't get to meet her. But he definitely agrees with Teena's assessment on the risotto. He loved it.

Thanks DisneyMomx7, we are all secured here. Hope you and your family are safe too along with any other DIS'ers.

I don't want to be the bullseye for any storm.
