Have you checked out the threads on here about Resort Changers?? Might be right up your alley Beach Club looks beautiful too, I just didn't like their options for quick service. I love Captain Cooks at the Poly and the larger food courts at the Moderates and Values, but most of the Deluxe resorts are seriously lacking in QS choices.


I told the girls we are not going to change Resorts anymore. Beach Club is it... I am embarrassed to keep calling and changing our resort 300 days out. The funny thing is, we are going to have 3 ADR's at the Polynesian.

Someday we will get back up there, but I guess it won't be this year He wants to stay closer to home this time. We will be going up to Acadia in a couple weeks instead. Love that place too!

Well, you can't go wrong with either....both are great resorts and I'm sure the girls will have fun no matter where you are And there is absolutely nothing wrong with having 3 ADRs at the Poly. Afterall, it's easy to get to and you are back and forth from MK all the time anyway, right? Have fun!




NEW SERENDIPI D BAG......

I have the Dory backpack which I love, but now I have a new addition to the Disney bag line up courtesy of the lovely and talented Miss D~

The whole set. Mickey balloons on a black swirly background. The Mickey hand holding the strings is just a brilliant idea!



The bag is a crossbody style about the same size as a Vera Hipster....perfect!



There is a slip in pocket on the front as well as a zippered one. The interior is so fun with polka dots and a hidden Mickey print for the two pockets.



Closeup of the embroidery....even a Lime Green Mickey for the DIS!



Love it D~! Thanks so much

Love the bags, wish it would not look to funny if I use one. I do use a mans bag if you want to call it that. I have never had a regular wallet. I have aways had a bag like a clutch.

So, after talking it over with Dani last night and reviewing all my pictures and receipts....I still can't figure out what we did for that hour or so at AK, but I know we went there. It was kind of a joke the rest of the trip because on that day we had horrible luck with buses. We ended up stopping at Blizzard Beach 5 times in that one day and never once did anyone get on or off the darn buses. It just seemed that every single bus that went to either Animal Kingdom or Animal Kingdom Lodge had to stop at Blizzard Beach just in case. It was really annoying.

So we had gone back to the room around 1ish. Our ADR at Boma was for 4:30, and I wanted time to check out AKL before, so I planned to leave POFQ at 3. We showered and changed and just chilled in the nice cool room until it was time to go. After yet another stop at Blizzard Beach, we were pulling in to AKL.

This was my first time seeing this beautiful resort. You would think I took lots of pictures....right? Nope, I only have pics of the food But if you want to see what AKL looks like, you can Google it.

We only had about a 1/2 hour to spare before Boma opened, so we just walked around the lobby and out the door by Boma to see what animals there were. Just this tiny bit of exploration makes me want to stay there someday. It's so hard because I want to stay at all of the resorts and the more I see, the more I want to stay. It's a never-ending cycle

Anyway...on to the food porn...

We were one of the first ADRs of the night and they do a nice opening ceremony thing for the first few parties. They had drums and singing and "dancing", it was really neat. There were probably 4 other parties besides Dani and I, and they kept the drums and song going the whole time they were seating us. Made me feel very special.

We were seated in the far corner of the restaurant under a little thatched roof "hut" by the windows. It was a prefect people-watching table. The hostest explained how things worked since it was our first time being there. And we wasted no time getting our first course.

My "salad course" plate: watermelon rind salad at the top, little corn muffin, pasta salad, and some sort of cabbage slaw. I liked all of them except the watermelon rind salad. It was just weird. Not much flavor.



Dani's salad course: she had alot of fruit and just greens I guess she wasn't feeling too adventurous to begin with.



We each had a soup to go with our salads. Mine was the butternut squash soup.



All I can say is YUM! I have had butternut soup many times...it is one of my favorites, but this was above and beyond anything I had ever tasted before. The spices they used worked so well with the squash...it was almost sweet like a dessert, but oh so yummy.

Dani had some veggie gumbo-ish stuff....forgive me, it has been way too long and we didn't write down any of the names.



She really liked it and went back for more later in the meal.

We tried a little of just about everything. I can't handle onions, so anything I saw that looked like it had onion, I passed up. But for the most part we loved everything we tried. This was my first plate.



I know, some of the sides look a little funny, but they had alot of flavor and worked well with the meat options. And for those of you that might think Boma would have too many odd things.....just know that all their meats were just served plain. The "African" aspect to them was all the sauces you could choose from. So if you are on the edge, please try it. They also had a whole area for "kids" that had normal American meals like chicken fingers and mac&cheese.

Dani's first plate



She just raved about the salmon, so I had to try it on my next trip up.



Sorry, I can't tell you what all the stuff is....but like I said, we enjoyed almost everything. Next up was dessert. Now keep in mind....we didn't want to eat too much dessert because we had the Wishes Dessert Party later that night. But gosh the stuff just looked sooooo incredible. And I had heard so much about those Zebra Domes that I just had to try them.



This was mine, but Dani had the same things. Gotta tell you....not a big fan of the Zebra Dome. I really loved the tangy mango cheesecake thingy. And the rich gooey chocolate "brownie" thing. Sorry, once again I didn't write down the specific names...but you get the point.

Dani's second dish. She love the vanilla sauce!



After this wonderful meal, we looked around in their shop a little then hit the bus stop. After our usual Blizzard Beach stop, we were back at French Quarter. It was about 6:00 by now. We both freshened up and then headed to the bus stop for our EMH and Dessert Party at the Magic Kingdom!

Great update, Suzi. We've never done Boma for dinner (I'd be one of those just getting the meats because I don't like things with all those different flavors). I was NOT a fan of the Zebra Domes either, so I'm glad to have some company in that category.

Awesome update Suzi!

Num... I tried so many of those same foods too... I remember loving the cold curry salad... and one of the desserts (not the zebra domes though). I want to say that there was something warm that I loved too - maybe a rice dish? I'd have to go back and read my TR to remember. LOL

I can't say enough about those bags! They are just wonderful. Disney has some nice bags too, but it is great to have an original.

Well it's nice to know I'm not alone on the ZDomes. I felt really bad that I didn't like them since they get so much praise on here, I tried...I really tried. It isn't like I hate them, but I'm just not a fan of liquor soaked things

You guys should try Boma for dinner....I have no doubts you could find lots that you like. I was worried a little, but I was very pleasantly surprised.
