How nice of the front desk staff to send a little package! That's really sweet.

You are not the only one who decides what to eat at Disney restaurants weeks ahead of time...

I can't believe how cute that seagull is... I've never seen that...

You and Wingnut are Dis Transportation die hards... I had a Kona breakfast on our MK morning and I just broke down and took the cab as well... DH would have done the bus but I was really tired that morning and just really needed an extra 1/2 hour of sleep...

I got the Macadamia pancakes also- Weren't they good? I love that butter... there have to be other uses for that butter...

I'm sorry your parents didn't like the pressed pot... I have to say I really did like it but then again I'm a big fan of really strong coffee... bitter though not so much...

Going to the GF for wedding planning... too cool...

I am going to have try your towel animal bait trick on our upcoming trip. We're staying at Coronado, the only resort I've stayed at where we got nary a towel animal. (Seriously!)

I would have gotten off at the TTC, too. Its a super short walk and its just lovely. I really did like the Poly and with refurbed rooms... could be sweet! But I doubt I'll ever convince my husband to stay there again.

Yummy breakfast. Your parents chose well; the Samoan is my favorite!

What a sweet gesture from the Swan. I've always wanted to try out the Swolphin, with its ACE location and all, and they do offer special teacher rates, it just seems like they never offer them when I want to go there. I'm sure someday it will be a less expensive option and we'll stay there. Its very pretty...and again...gotta love the location!

Bring on the wedding locales!

Here's your missing little "yay" guy!

There's always a good transportation adventure, isn't there?
What a nice gesture from the Swan/Dolphin! Especially since your parents were the ones staying there!

Kona breakfast - our first time there for breakfast was our recent trip and I can say you are NOT the only one debating between Tonga Toast and Macadamia Nut pancakes! I will be going back to try the "other" one next time!
I tried the press pot too. I put a LOT of cream and sugar in it!!

Aww what a cute gesture by the Swan CMs!

Eeee can't wait for wedding planning! I'm guessing your reception and/or ceremony will be something Epcot related.

Hi there Sara! I'm finally getting caught up. Sounds like you amassed quite a collection of celebration pins - even if one set was for an anniversary at least they were very thoughtful. (I love the mystere surrounding Wingnuts "real" name... I'm going to dub him "Joe" for now! )

Your breakfast choice at Kona makes us kindred spirits since I fully endorse macadamia nut pancakes! I won't judge anyone who can't decide between tonga toast and macadamia nut pancakes - I live that dilemma every trip! (Although the pancakes win out every time for me.)

How awesome that the Swan was so thoughtful with the gift!! More pins!! And a cool pen.

What a crack up you are with the towel animals - so creative and clever! You are so good that you make that towel for the nose look exactly like money!!!

I am excited to hear all about the wedding planning.

Aw, I love that the front desk gave yall the cute little card! (AND PEN.) That's Disney for ya! Or should I say, that's on Disney property but not officially Disney but still Disney anyway for ya!
Hahaha thanks!

LOL yes - it was very "not quite Disney but still Disney" of them!

Love your new navigational skills.

How sweet of the Swan to send you that cute little greeting. You guys really ended up with a lot of pins.

That picture of the lobby was so pretty.
Hahaha it is a very difficult decision!!!

We did!!! Everyone was so sweet!

I think the gift from the front desk is super cool... Had a hard time reading the note though. I kept reading the word "the" as "me" :rolleyea:

Breakfast looks super yummy! Can't you believe I have never ate at Kona for breakfast
Yep...that is always the same way here too!

I thought so too! Hahaha I didn't notice that until you pointed it out, it does look similar.

WHAT???? You need to go, right now!!!

Awww yeah ours is pretty quiet too!!! Although the louder ones do make me laugh!

Oooh that's an excellent idea!

Isn't he so cute??? They were in a little basket with some other stuffed animals in the Seas gift shop!

Hahaha we use cabs as well, don't worry! We used them a few times on this trip, actually!

That butter is amazing, I would come up with excuses to put it on anything!!!

I have to say, the towel animal bait really does not have that high a success rate for me. It is a VERY rare day at Disney when we actually get a towel animal!

Hahaha I liked aspects of the resort, and I LOVE visiting there, but I don't think I'd stay there again either! Too far from Epcot and DHS!

It was really sweet of them!! We've stayed there a few times, it really is a nice resort. And the location is awesome!

It is a very difficult decision!!! It was a last-second choice for me in the end!

It was so nice of them!!! (And I actually used the pen yesterday to make a grocery list! )

LOL yes, my towel animal skills are THAT good!!
