I'm glad I'm OK and the other lady was OK too. Luckily she didn't have any passengers because I completely destroyed the passenger side of her car. What a day!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OMG, Erika, so glad that you weren't badly hurt and that the lady took responsibility! Feel better soon!

Thanks everyone I'm OK, just sore and stiff this morning. I couldn't sleep so I made a bunch of ADRs for our trip. Typical obsessed Disney person, right? I booked Teppen Edo, Via Napoli, Sci-fi, Rose & Crown, and we already had BOG, so I just need 2 more. I'm thinking something on the monorail would be good for friday night since we'll be at BLT. Maybe Kona. And then I'm going to add a buffet and/or character meal for our last night at BWI. Maybe Cape May? It's probably too late to get Chef Mickey's. I haven't checked it yet. Another sort of funny Disney moment, right after the wreck a lady stopped to help us and asked if I needed anything out of my car. I told her I had Mickey Mail in the front seat and she looked at me like I was crazy. But I needed our ME documents and luggage tags before they towed the car away!!

I'm sorry to hear about your car accident. It was strange that your airbags didn't deploy. It is good that you weren't seriously injured. At least you were able to salvage the Mickey mail.

Cape May would be a good buffet choice. We always eat there on every trip.

We enjoyed Cape May on our last trip ~ went for dinner. Gross story ~ when I was going through the buffet there was a child up there by himself (around 12). He was dipping his ketchup out and then licked the spoon and put it back in the ketchup on the buffet

Oh, and we loved Kona, too! Had breakfast there.

Hate to say it but we've crossed Kona off out list. Jeff and I had the NY strip, it was burned on the outside and tough for medium rare. No more mashed potatoes as they got rid if the ribeye. They have some scalloped type but nothing like the old 'Ohana scalloped potatoes.

I have seen a lot of gross stuff at the buffets over the years. But the kids do enjoy them. Personally I would never go to one if it were up to me.

That's disappointing. We use to eat there all the time. Our last experience about a year ago was bad but I was hoping it was isolated. I swear all the single TS restaurants have gone down the tubes. Back before the dining plan they were all amazing. I guess now its all about being cheap.

Preach it! We've seen the same thing. Dumbing down the offerings, doing away with the better cuts of meat. SOA went front their salad with fresh greens and vinegrette to a potato salad and slaw, from ribs to pork loin, changed out the dessert for a mousse. Concourse steakhouse went the way of the wind The last visit we had Cape May and no fried shrimp, the mussels were tiny, and the roast beef was stringy. All that for over $30 a person.

The last couple times I've eaten there it hasn't been very good either. The worst part has always been the service, though.

I've noticed a decline in food everywhere (even the signatures) and it came when the dining plan began being offered to the masses. Back in those days, it was very expensive to get a "Resort Magic Plan" with the dining.

Sorry to hear about your accident, but glad that you are ok!
