Loving your review! I'm only on page 26 but it's sure been fun so far.

I'm glad Dale was okay after the mini heart attack! Gosh, I can't imagine how scary that was!

We were in Disney the exact same time as you guys were and at Epcot on the soft opening day! It was HOT HOT HOT!!!

So, I have been waiting forever for an update from you two and you do it on a day I don't have my own laptop and picture viewing capabilities.

WTH was wrong with that hostess? Are you kidding me? Why would she ever offer her a kid's menu? That is just plain rude.

Poor Caitlin. She must have been feeling just awful to have to resort to a wheelchair and not even care. I am so glad, though, that you found a great place to eat where everyone enjoyed the food.

Which pool did you go to? (since I can't see the pics)

Be back later tonight to catch up.

Welcome!
Thank you! I hope you continue to enjoy it!

Thank you. It was scary at the time and even scarier after the fact as I processed just how bad it could have turned out!

It was crazy, sweaty hot wasn't it?!

I don't even know what she was thinking but I hated the way she talked over Caitlin's head like she was less than a person.

Poor Caitlin. She must have been feeling just awful to have to resort to a wheelchair and not even care. I am so glad, though, that you found a great place to eat where everyone enjoyed the food.

She was extremely weak and lethargic and unfortunately that didn't change until after we were home.

We were at the Paddock pool. I know they rehabbed not too long ago and it's really cute!

Cool! I saw this from a distance in June and it looked really neat. Unfortunately I never made it back over there. Next time!

One of the things I love about Disney is that there is always something new to see "next time"

Wow so sorry to hear how the hostess was so rude and just plain ignorant. One of my best friends has just recently over last 2 years been diagnosed with a rare disease where she can't really walk. Anyhow she always says how rude much of society is to those in a wheelchair. It's sad! Glad your daughter was able to keep down some food. I find that when my stomach is uneasy, a cone slurped always settles it.

Thank you.
So sorry to hear about your friend!
Caitlin being in a wheelchair really gave us a better understanding of how rude and lacking compassion people can be towards someone with a physical challenge. It is very sad.

The hostess never apologized and looked at Andrew sympathetically and gave Caitlin the kids menu anyway. I was not too pleased with her attitude! Thankfully we got a good waitress who made up for the hostess.

OH MY WORD!!!!!!!! That is unbelievable! Awful! I'm glad you had a good waitress after her.

I hope Caitlin is on the upswing and all the sickness is behind you!

It was a lovely wedding and I thought Caitlin did a great job sharing it

Yes the hostess seemed to think just because she was in a wheelchair she was also mentally impaired It was disturbing.

I feel so bad for Caitlin being sick on her wedding day. Glad she was feeling a bit better for lunch. The hostess was unbelievably rude! I wonder how she treats special needs families?
