Looking forward to more...

The Writer's Stop is a nice little place to take a break. When we were there it wasn't crowded and Dale was shocked to find good Disney coffee

Thank you!

Welcome! Glad to have you along!
Just before vacation we decided to replace our bulky NikonD80 with a Sony NEX5N. We have been really happy with it!

Too funny ... the story about the man who sat next to DH... but I don't blame him...I wouldn't have loved that either... I like a small but definite space bubble around me and strangers...

Yeah for 15 minute wait for TSM -not bad at all...

I love the Writer's Stop...something about the atmosphere and the fact they have decent coffee... so the carrot cake cookie-was it good enough to get again? I've always wanted to try it but have never been hunger when we were in there... just desperate for caffeine...

Funny you brought up Wreck it Ralph... we saw it too- and I'm really conflicted...I thought it was a very Clever film and concept...and the animation was very good... but something about it... I'm not sure it will be a "classic" either...it felt like it went a little bit too long... like the editing could have been tighter or something...I'm really glad I saw it but well time will tell how Ralph does... My daughter and I were totally in love with the Paperman as well...

It was just the funniest thing and we still laugh about it

I was pretty happy about it!

I'm not sure I'd have the cookie again. I did like the cookie but the cream cheese center was far too rich for me. I am glad I finally tried it though.

We felt the same way. We couldn't really pinpoint one thing that is was lacking it just seemed to being missing something. I did love Vanellope though! Paperman was great wasn't it?!

I had to look it up, but that Sony looks like quite the powerhouse. I have a Canon 7D. I'll be taking it when we go in April. I took my Canon XSi last time. Never seemed to have the time to get creative with it though. I intend to make the time this trip.

Poor Dale! That'll teach him not to be tardy in the future. Imagine that man saying, "you've got something in your eye. Do you want me to get it out? " I mean, WHO says that? How were you not rolling on the floor?????

30 minutes for GMR? Yikes! Sounds like summer crowds to me.

ADR? Hmmmmmm....... If you stay at HS I'm going to guess Prime Time. If you go to Epcot I am going to guess........OK....thinking.......this is harder than I thought.......how about Rose & Crown or Les Chefs?

I had the most amazing pizza at Via in October. It was awesome. SO good.

Oh yeah - Cynthia and I split one of those carrot cake cookies. A little too much sugar for me at breakfast. I definitely crashed after that sugar high.

I loved Wreck it Ralph. I thought it was a really cute movie, I agree it was a tad too long but I still enjoyed it.

Those cookies look delish! I have never been there. Maybe next time.

I think Caitlyn got you reservations at the 50's Dinner???

I absolutely adore Brave and can't wait for it to come out! I think next week it's on DVD.

I had seen that picture of you guys on FB with Merida and I think it's awesome! Her face is priceless.

I think Storybook Circus looks great. I can't wait to see it in person in a few weeks.

Oh dear. I absolutely can't handle it when people insist on sitting right now to me in a completely empty space. And then the whole "you have something in your eye" thing? That's hysterical. I don't know if I would have been able to keep my composure.

Mmmmm, carrot cake cookie. I agree, it's something to be shared.

I am also a rope-drop person and would have got nuts missing those boats! Poor Dale - but hopefully he learned his lesson.

Love TSM, not a bad wait for you there. I'm guessing Brown Derby for lunch.

Dale is a Best Buy manager so he is always tempted by the latest gadgets

We try and get some different pics each time we go to keep things interesting.

I know right?! I was really having a hard time keeping it together but it was like a scene from Punked or Candid Camera

30 minutes for GMR? Yikes! Sounds like summer crowds to me.

The crowds weren't that bad that day so I never did figure out why the wait was so long.

ADR? Hmmmmmm....... If you stay at HS I'm going to guess Prime Time. If you go to Epcot I am going to guess........OK....thinking.......this is harder than I thought.......how about Rose & Crown or Les Chefs?

I would have preferred any of those to where we ended up. I really wanted to keep the Via adr but since I got a longer trip than he did I let him choose.

Oh yeah - Cynthia and I split one of those carrot cake cookies. A little too much sugar for me at breakfast. I definitely crashed after that sugar high.
I would prefer just a single cookie without the frosting myself.

It was a cute movie and they did do a great job matching the characters and their voice actors.
The Writer's Stop is so small and easy to miss I think you almost have to plan ahead to stop there or you just forget.
I wish it was the 50's!

Yep, he learned that lesson the hard way
You are correct! Dale's favorite DHS restaurant is Brown Derby so Caitlin booked us there
