Dates people. I need dates. They come in handy when planning.

Well it would be helpful for a little input. After all I'm not the only one going on this trip. I don't want to get scolded again for changing something I shouldn't have.

Wow. Sweet deal.

We calculated it will be cheaper for us to take the bus to/from Disney, then to drive to the park and pay for parking each day. We want to get a feel for the bus system to see if it will actually work out for us. If we feel like it won’t work for us, then we’ll just have to fork over more money to Disney and pay to park.
Okay, got it. Rent a car just for weight training.

I'm sorry. Still not quite clear on this. Is it a special occasion of some sort? Perhaps an anniversary of some kind?

Usually people forget things after the Sunny Ds.

Get to a few call outs later. Lady H's grandpa is stopping by. Thanks again to everyone who sent out anniversary wishes.

By this time next week, be at the airport waiting to go to DL.

The not so sweet deal is if you want to add a day to that ticket. You only get $219 towards upgrading your ticket. So almost $50 per ticket to add a day. At least that's what City Pass told me. I'll inquire more about it while we're there.

Why yes. Lady H and I are celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary on this trip. Thanks for asking. Wasn't sure if I mentioned it or not.

UPS of course. Shipping fees I'm sure would be much cheaper for us as they would've been for you.

I am going to introduce you to something other than Sunny D. We won't be packing any miniatures to take with us. Stop cringing Nebo. We want to stay under the weight limit.

I know about the 2008 fire, but I don't recall a 2011 fire. Is this a test of the emergency broadcast system? Or are you referring to the 2011 fire in Orlando? We're not going to Orlando until December. Remember this TR is about us going to the one in Hollywood. How many Sunny D bottles have did you have while writing this TR that you already forgot?

"We're going to Hollywood."

They're actually called a Margarilla: "The Rainforest Cafe® house specialty featuring Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila and orange sherbet." I highly recommend them. If you ever find yourself around Albuquerque, NM; drop by, we live just outside of this city. I know how to make them and might be a little stronger if you know what I mean.

It's not just you we're waiting on. Think everyone is waiting until we leave to post their recipes. Help keep our TR going. What a thoughtful group.

As always, thanks Ponzi. Glad to see I haven't chased you away yet. With Nebo and Smidgy being back, I'm glad to see we still have some readers.

Not even Nebo himself has come to read our TR yet.

I will admit, I didn't know that was a song until Lady H pointed it out to me. I had to Google it to listen to it.

Thank you for the anniversary wish and the sweet song.

Nope. There was a fire December 8th, 2011 at US Hollywood. Here's a link. But it looks like it wouldn't have affected much anyway. I just googled fires at US Hollywood and saw 2008 and 2011.

Umm.... I think the question might be how many have did you have?

Actually... no. I decided that I'd rather learn about it from your TR then Google it. I'm content to wait for you to fill in the knowledge gap.

Holy Smokes, almost 8 opages already?

I'll tell you why I haven't come sooner:
I just spent 20 minutes searching for this stupid thread, I didn't know there was a separate section for D'Land pre trip reports from people that are only from the Southwest who work together. Geesh

but this is going to be a real treat for me,,,
I finally get to shoot back after all these years of taking abuse.
First Ponzi, and now Team Thumper, life is good.
Plus, I really do want to hear comparisons of the two resorts, we really are hoping to make it to D-Land next year, and I want to be armed and ready.
I can also tell already your report is going to be a hit, both of you are good at telling stories and you even seem to be able to spell correctly, or is Lady H proofreading for you?

What's cool is seeing all our same friends doing a lot of the posting, we seem to have turned into our own mini-society, if I was to lookk at just the posters, I wouldn't be able to tell w;hose report I'm reading,, mine, Ponzi, Laura's Shan, we need to come up with a name for us, like:
"The Flat Earth Society" or the "It'l never work Society".

By the way, the pictures you posted of yourself, Mike?
You arent' going to make a habit out of that, are you?
Just teasin', oh, life is good!

Great start, can't wait for the real report to begin.

And as for why Ruby picked you?
Remember back in high school, there was always a super fox who dated the biggest loser in school, usually a big, dumb, butt ugly jock type, that nobody could figure out why she's with him?
Well, you should feel proud because I think that YOU were that guy?

And before you say it, yes, I know because I was that guy too, just look at the pictures of me and Smidgy.
