I'm not experienced in most of the monorail-line restaurants, but I would have to vote for Kona Cafe. I have eaten there -- the atmosphere in the Poly just can't be beat, the food is good and it's far more relaxed than O'Hana.

Kona is on my short list of possibilities for my last day. I've had dinner there and really liked it. I was trying to decide whether or not the lunch selections were as enticing.

I am absolutely right now. Somehow I lost my subscription to your PTR (I was wondering why I hadn't seen an update lately).

Can you believe we are in the single digits? 9 days from today we will be meeting you. I cannot wait!

7 Ways in Which...

I will channel my inner seven year old.

Appropriate not only because my oldest is seven, but that happens to be the age I was the very first time I went to Walt Disney World.

Trip of the infamous sun poisoning and beautiful Alice in Wonderland dress. Good times.

In all seriousness, that was my first family trip with my sister, mom, and dad to Walt Disney World, and it holds a really special place in my heart. I don't remember a lot specifically about what we did, but I know I had a great time.

And a few years ago, my mother put together a scrapbook / keepsake box for me with photos from my childhood, that trip, on up to the present day. And in the bottom of that keepsake box?

My very first autograph book.

So cool to have that piece of my childhood. Especially since I still love, love, love meeting characters.

So without further ado, I give you my 7 ways in which I will channel my inner 7 year old:

1. Purchase my very own autograph book and get as many autographs as I can!

2. Skip down Main Street, even if I'm doing it by myself.

3. Eat dessert first.

4. Forgo dinner completely and just eat dessert.

5. Ride the rides I loved as a kid, and pretend the hitchhiking ghost really IS coming home with me.

6. Make at least one frivolous souvie purchase, just because I want it.

and

7. Remember that "adults are just kids grown up anyway" in everything that I do.



Who wants to do the seven day dance?

Love this, especially Number 7!

And I am dancing with you, my friend.

Bummer!!! And on a side note, you've got a lot of reading to do.

I cannot wait either! I'm so excited for both our trips.

Thanks! I really want to make sure that I remember why I love Disney so much in the first place. That I can enjoy it with the benefit of adult beverages, but that pure joy I used to feel as a kid.

We are partying down!!!

Not an official update, but as the toddler and I are having a super lazy day, I am getting my computer type stuff done for the trip.

I just loaded new music onto my cell (which doubles as my MP3 player). Check!

I just loaded my Nook with new library loans. I've got five to choose from and I'll bring a paperback also. Check!

I'm uploading all my current photos so I can dump my memory cards for the trip. In process!

Not too bad for a lazy day at home.

Very productive.

And this reminds me that since we are using Andy's camera, that I have to have him empty his memory card so I have the whole card (he's got his stuff from his trip to Cedar Point and the Cubs game on there).

I also made pajama shorts out of the leftover fabric from the super cute dress of yesterday.

Actually I don't think I mentioned that on this thread, maybe just on Facebook. First time I made shorts that aren't huge...and they are SO cute. I'll look adorable even when I'm sleeping.

And Crocs makes them.
My current pair is from Lands End and I wore those suckers OUT. I should probably check again as they'll be getting more fall things in

I really like them, some of their styles are super cute.

I've actually returned pretty much everything that I thought would work and ordered a whole new set of flip flops to try.

Clearly, I have shoe issues.

The bigger issue is that I leave in a week and have no idea what I'm wearing on my feet.

One pair of sneakers and one pair of flip flops. You wear the flips in the mornings and the sneakers at night
