I didn't realize that you could have a heart attack and still be able to just kind of keep going...

I'll bet you were really shocked when you got home and found out...

I'm sure this will be a very special Thanksgiving for you...
We were able to continue our vacation and he felt pretty good considering everything.
Thank you.
I didn't either.
I was very shocked. As it was I had to pester him to get him to go to the doctor and that was so he'd get a new inhaler. We never expected to hear what had actually happened.

Thank you. We feel blessed

That's too bad, I would've loved to have a picture to go along with such a cute story.

I'm sure you did.

Sweet! A freebie! Although it's probably a good thing that the register wasn't down for several hours.

"Ma'am? I have another drink on the house for your husband, but I don't see him at the table."

That was quite the 'adventure'. (One I'm sure you have no desire to repeat.) I'm sure glad that Dale seems to be fine now. I too echo the sentiment of others wondering why no help was offered.

What a typical response for a man. Men can be so pig headed and foolish sometimes.

Oh, wait. I is one.

Great pics of and around the resort.

Well I wasn't expecting that level of drama. I'm so glad Dale is OK. And, I guess if you were stuck "in", your beautiful resort was a nice place to be stuck.

At the time it didn't even dawn on me that no one offered to help. I have since thought about it a great deal and hoping that in a similar situation I would be more aware of others and realize someone else was in need of help.

I was ready to go back to Disney but leave the rest of them home. When Caitlin arrived she brought more drama

Hi Dawn!
Just catching up after a few weeks. WOW I hope Dale is feeling better - I was so shocked to read it was a heart attack. I was getting such a kick out of your pictures of him as he drank his margarita's. His smile kept getting bigger and bigger with each progressive drink, I'm so glad the inhaler seemed to work and hope he stays well.
I'm enjoying your TR and loved Dale's interaction with the man on the boat -too funny! Your "Toy" shirt is really cute.

Hi All! Hope everyones Thanksgivings were wonderful and that you all had successful Black Friday shopping trips! I apologize for it being so long between posts, but writing about Dale's incident just sort of drained me, but I'm back now so time for another update!

After our early night the night before, we woke up early the next morning and Dale was feeling back to normal. We were rather bummed because today we would be checking out of the Yacht Club and moving over to Saratoga Springs. We got everything packed up and decided we were ready for breakfast. We decided to skip the Club Lounge and give the Captain's Grille a try. We took our bags to the car and then when back inside for breakfast.We got there shortly before they opened and even though we didn't have an adr we had no problem getting a table. After we were seated the first thing I did was look for these pictures...



I had read on the Yacht and Beach Club Resort thread how the ship moves across the pictures so I had to check it out! Sure enough....


It does!

The CG offers a menu and a buffet. We both went with the buffet.





The food was wonderful and they had a lot of unique offerings. Sone of the more unusual items included a breakfast reuben, tomatoes gratin and various types of frittatas. We both enjoyed our meal and the 10% discount we got with our Disney Visa

When the server brought our bill she also brought a treat for the birthday boy!


We were now ready to head over to Epcot via the "private entrance".



We got there around 8:30 and we waited until they let us in around 8:45. Since I don't do Soarin (makes me sick) our first stop was to see everyone's favorite purple dragon. We were the first riders of the day! (they forgot to give us our prize)

Ready to use your imagination?






Say "Good Bye"



I like how the colors came out in this


From there it was time to head to the Great Barrier Reef





We found Nemo in his big blue world and then wanted to visit the manatees. Unfortunately their exhibit wasn't open, so instead we decided to go and act silly



This area is so cute it just brings out the kid in you, doesn't it?




Then we wandered over to the aquariums and found a hidden Mickey


After we had our fill of watching the fishies we left the Sea and headed to The Land. Since we weren't going Soarin, we took the boat ride. Where we took one picture? Yep! Enjoy it because this is it



I have no idea why Dale took just one pic but it was pretty amazing and sums up the entire ride, right?! I didn't hear you. Right?! Ok that's better.

After our amazing journey through the land we decided it was time to visit Spaceship Earth. When we got there the sign said 20 minutes but it was actually a walk on. (the signs were off our whole trip. who does those things?) When we boarded the ride I was feeling mischievous so when it asked which language I hit Spanish. Dale then switched to English and we went back and forth like that a few times. Well I didn't switch it to English soon enough and we ended up being stuck with "Deutsch". Yep that whole long ride in another language. BORING! Dale happens to speak German so he didn't mind but I sure did. Since I couldn't understand what she was saying I just sat back and took pictures. Flashless pictures as I am a good girl.









She is so groovy!


Once we were safely back on Earth, it was time to do a little shopping so we paid a visit to Mousegears.

Dale saw this shirt and found it hilarious!


(boy humor)

I bought the Halloween flag (which did not hold up well at all!) and a couple of surprises for Caitlin which I can't share with you because she hasn't gotten them yet.

Once our shopping excursion ended it was time to head over to World Showcase! I'll save that for next time...thanks for reading!

Yeah! Update!

I am so glad Dale was feeling better today. Just one question - after three ritas did he have any remnants of a hangover? If not, more power to him.

I did not know that about the boat at the Captain's Grille and I was just there in October. Drat.

The breakfast buffet sounds really yummy. I'll have to put that on my list of quiet places for breakfast. Cynthia and I had lunch there and we literally had the place to ourselves and the burger was really yummy. I really enjoyed it. I would go back in a heartbeat. A nice place to get away from it all.

One picture on LWTL? Now - that is a record.

Your pictures on Spacehip Earth are really good - nice and bright. I am loving your new camera.

So does Caitlin arrive today? Are we getting close(r).

Love those artsy shots. They are great!

WOW, that is so scary about Dale! Glad he is OK though.

Bummer you don't do Soarin. That is one of my absolute favorite rides!
