I'll be curious to see what you find out about the Poly and GF when you are there!
We actually never lost power, which I can't believe! The wind and rain were crazy. We feel very fortunate...if the storm was about 200 miles to the north, it would have been much different. Where my town is right on the ocean, who knows what could have happened. My heart is breaking for those in NJ and NY.

Halloween was great! Halle dressed up as a cupcake...she was so cute! I just loved it. She had a great time trick-or-treating.

I am hoping we get to see the new Fantasyland stuff too. We are going to MVMCP, and I hear from the Fantasyland thread that it may be open then. I can't wait!

It's been an ok weekend. I had to leave work on Thursday b/c I lost my voice. I had a cold but didn't feel that sick. I went to the walk in on my way home and called in sick for Friday. I still have laryngitis, on an antibiotic and some strong cough medicine.
DS11 had a hockey game in Cape Cod yesterday. I wasn't going to go but other than my voice- I felt fine. They lost 6-1

Oh and shopping. Lots of that.

One more week and then my long-term sub job at the MS is done! It's been a good run but I'm kind of glad it's coming to an end. Now things can get somewhat back to normal. Well, as normal as being on call can be.


Yeah, I hear you may have done a little shopping lately........

You were so fortunate that you didn't lose your power. I know, I feel so bad for those in NY & NJ that got hit so hard. It looks just awful on the news.

I'm glad you and your DD had a fun Halloween!

That will be fun if the Fantasyland stuff is open for MVMCP!!

I love talking FOOD on vacation~ WDW or anywhere!!
I love looking at old trip pictures!!! Those were some great ones. I saw some patterns there. We definately all have our favorites.
Can you pick one favorite restaurant?? I can't seem to do it. I have a few that I love to go back to.
I forgot to say that our first family trip was 2005 too.

Me too!

Hmm....IDK what I would say is our absolute favorite!! That's a tough one. We probably all have a different answer on that one, but if we all had to agree on one it would have to be Kona Cafe for breakfast.
Everyone in the family is happy there!

Happy (Late to the Party) 5 Weeks!!!!


Ohmygoodness!!!!!!!! You got the ME stuff Saturday????!!!!!???? (Did you get it while I was at Starbucks???)

That means the package stuff with luggage tags will be in the mail maybe this week!!! Which means I'm scared to death that Belle is going to get it out of the mail before me.

oh geez. I'm a nervous wreck it's gonna get spoiled.


Okay now---- allllllllllllllllll those restaurants. You should do an ultimate Disney Dining Review. It would be so interesting to see what you ate (or didn't order ). I think its neat that you have been to so many places and you try new things so often. I'm such a stuck in the mud- always going to the same old places.


Kona Breakfast..... Of course it's a fave.


I know I keep saying I can't believe how much the boys have grown, but holy cow look at how little they were that first trip!!
I can't believe I've seen them grow up all these years.
It's so neat, and sad at the same time.




Can't wait to hear where you're eating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy 5 Weeks Shelly!

I have to agree with Jodi that Kona Cafe is always a favorite with our family. The food is always fresh, hot and serve quite quickly. The pricing is very reasonable and it fills you up and gets you ready for a day at MK or Epcot.

We went there at least two time last year and four times in 2010. No complaints from anyone!

Yachtsman Steakhouse was a first time for my wife and I in 2011. We celebrated my wife's birthday there with our Disney friends from Orlando. They have been there many times and had said that they have enjoyed it. The food and presentation was very good. My filet was prepared perfectly and my wife's NY was very good too. It was very cool to see the aged meat and preparation area. The service was good too - very attentive and helpful. Definitely an upscale experience and the pricing reflected it. I think it would be safe to say, if you want a great steak - go here. Afterwards, we took a walk through the resort area -very nice! I wouldn't mind staying there some time.

Wish I could write more, but I am off to a lunch meeting.

Sea

Where have I been? Well, I've been shopping for Peanut's Christmas gifts, which has been SO MUCH FUN!!!!!

I also spent the baby-free night this weekend, as my aunt babysat Claudia overnight. We celebrated by sleeping 12 HOURS!!! Yay for sleeping in! Together!

My favorite restaurants are Kona and Via Napoli. I want to try something new, but I'm not sure what... Any suggestion? Also, which one was your favorite character meal?

Guess what I got today??


MICKEY MAIL!!!!!!!!!!


It came!!!!!!!!!!!

Remember long ago the sniffing of the sleeves????? (I bet Sea remembers!!!!!) You KNEW your vacation was close when you could sniff that sleeve!
It was almost-- ALMOST that much fun but not quite b/c I didn't get a headache after wards.


Anyway,
I went out as soon as the postal lady came by and there was the little envelope in all it's glory!!!

I came full on RUNNING inside-- whipped up a latte, turned on Michael Buble's Christmas CD as loud as I could and sat there holding it in my hot little hands, grinning like a mule eating briars.

I'm so happy I've been giggling for the past 30 minutes.

And then I tried to get on here to tell you all about it and my stupid internet had gone on vacation--- AGAIN!!!--- so what did I do??

I cleaned out my BINDER!!

And then I re worked my plans and once the internet came back from it's extended journey to Timbuktu, I logged onto the WDW website and cancelled an ADR and THEN, oh yes THEN-----

I PRINTED OUT MY PLANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I AM DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Round of applause please!


Now--- where the heck are you anyway?

You didn't say you were working today??

Are you shopping?????



Okay I'm rambling but I don't have anyone to talk to and my caffiene from the latte is kicking in, so................

And I got another one today. I swear this arriving at the GF and departing from the Poly has got the ME people so confused. Neither of my ME trips show online under my ressies. Still!! Even though I've called several times. So now I think I have one booklet for the trip there and one for the way back. Great, more junk to carry.

I don't think I will be getting any package stuff since my ressies are 'room only'... Is yours a package???

I know, I could do a big fat super ultimate WDW Dining Review, couldn't I??? Sure seems like we've eaten a ton.

I am always shocked to see how much the boys have grown when I look back at old WDW pics. So sad.

Thanks Sea!

Yep, Kona is awesome -- food, service, price, everything!! Love it!

DH and I went to the Yachtsman in May for our anniversary. We liked it a lot. It's a nice quiet place with good service. My steak was prepared well done, just how I like it. But we didn't really care for all the sauces that came on the steak. Kind of took away from the steak we thought. Next time I will ask for it plain!!

Hope your meeting went well.

YAY for Christmas shopping and for 12 hours of sleep!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is awesome!!

We really like T-Rex and Big River Grille. And for a good character meal -- definitely Crystal Palace for breakfast and Chef Mickey's for dinner! They also have a nice one at the Swan - the Garden Grove. It's a very laid back quiet character meal.

Too bad I don't think I'm getting any......Oh well, it's not as fun anymore since it doesn't come in a plastic sleeve!!

Well that was lucky that you got the mail and the kids didn't!!

Sorry I wasn't here to celebrate with you. Stupid work.

But maybe it's a good thing I wasn't here and you GOT YOUR PLANS DONE!! And cancelled an ADR??? Do tell!!
