Two rides on TSM, way to go!

I also enjoy the writers stop, they do have decent coffee!

I know that the carrot cake cookie is a DIS favorite, but it is the photo of your DH's cookie that has my mouth watering. Chocolate and toffee sounds like a home run to me!

Dale preferred that cookie to the carrot cake one although that didn't stop him from finishing it

Interesting that you'd say that. I don't know anyone that's really all that interested in it. Of course all the hype's on 007 right now.

Lucky. I can usually manage the early, but never the bright.

The man then turns his head, gets his face real close to Dale's, looks Dale in the eye and tells him in a very thick accent, "you got something right there in your eye". Dale looked like he was going to die and wipes his eye. The man then tells him "you missed it, want me to get it?" I was biting my lip so I would not laugh out loud. It was hysterical! The man then proceeds to talk non-stop all the way to DHS about all the fish in the waters at WDW. I honestly have never seen Dale so uncomfortable When we got off the boat I turned to Dale and said "we are now even for you making us miss rope drop"
OMG that story is hillarious! I told DW about it. I mean who does that? (Other than a certain southern gent) "Want me to get it?"

So I guess the options are: 1. Jump overboard and risk the brain eating amoebas or 2. Stay within the reach of Southern Gent.

Hard choice.

Not too bad for missing rope drop.

I had eaten so many snacks by then that I just wasn't hungry anymore. I got it "for later". Later became, "the next day". The next day I still wasn't hungry... so I still haven't tried one! DW liked it, though.

We always go see all the Disney and Pixar movies but this one just wasn't among Disney's best. Dale wants to go see 007, not my thing though.

Lucky. I can usually manage the early, but never the bright.

Where does that expression come from? When it's early it isn't usually bright out is it

And you're not gonna let us forget it, are you?

Nope!

What a great idea!

"Hello, my name is Dawn and I am a diehard rope dropper."

"Hi Dawn!"
It really is a sickness!

It was so random and so strange it was absolutely hilarious!

Yeah, ya win some and ya lose some.

Sweet!



And I see Dale won again... otherwise you would've mentioned it. Right?

You know me well!

Don't you hate when that happens!

I wonder if maybe they had a breakdown and that backed it up?

I have no idea but it was really strange. Not as strange as the boat guy though

What? No! Say it isn't so!

Yep! Very tragic

I'm gonna guess Sci Fi. Thanks for the chapter!
Nope not SciFi although I would have preferred that!

I would never save a penny if I worked at any electronics store, especially one that had camera gear. lol

Very fun update!

I am a rope-drop addict, too, but fortunately everyone else in my family are early risers, so we don't have trouble making it. Even so, we have been in the situation where we missed a HS boat on more than one occasion.

The story about the guy on the boat is HILARIOUS!!!

So a 30 minute wait on GMR, but only 15 min and 10 min on TSM? That just ain't right! Or a 3 PM return time for TSM first thing in the morning? Also not right!

Love me some muppets!

I have never been to Writer's Stop. I'm not sure if I would like the cookie. Sounds too sweet for my taste. My DH loves carrot cake, so someday we may try it.

I was going to guess Prime Time too, but it sounds like HBD.

I enjoyed you update, I love HS. The Writer's Shop is a nice quiet place. I am not a sweet eater but I like seeing all the popular sweet snacks on the Dis.

The YC atmosphere and Club lounge made Dale feel too relaxed

The story about the guy on the boat is HILARIOUS!!!

I secretly kept hoping we'd run into him again but no luck.

So a 30 minute wait on GMR, but only 15 min and 10 min on TSM? That just ain't right! Or a 3 PM return time for TSM first thing in the morning? Also not right!

It was really odd!

I think it would be better if the frosting just wasn't so thick.

I was going to guess Prime Time too, but it sounds like HBD.
Yes, HBD it was.

I like reading all the popular Dis snacks too but so far both the cookie and the School bread have disappointed me.

We have never ventured into the Writer's Workshop. Looks like it's now on the list.
