Wow, the Yak & Yeti meal looked delicious! I donít think I have anywhere to squeeze in that meal for our upcoming trip, though! Oh well, that just means Iíll have to plan another trip The Ahi Tuna looked SO GOOD!!! I was cracking up at your Sugar Cane Mojito pictures! It must have been a good drink! Iíve seen it on other TRs, too, and I must have one! Your PhotoPass pictures were really cute, too!

Can I just say at this moment how much I HATE photobucket? I just went in there to get photos for a long overdue update only to find that I HAVE to use the new system... What happened to March 18th? I don't want to deal with that yet.... Grrrrrrgh....

The Dawa bar looks awesome!
It really is good... and there are lots of choices... You don't have to be terrifically adventuresome... It is cool in there too... Ahhh...Dawa... seek it out sometime...

Well I'm glad to be of service-lol- but you might be surprised... there are plainer things...

David is just a cutie! I also love his cheesy smile with Stitch!

He is really a sweetheart... he makes me laugh at least 5 times a day... and yes when he knows his picture is being taken... the cheese factor of his smile is off the charts...


We are going to try to get DS on EE this trip. He has a slight fear of roller coaster but DH feels he will like it because it doesn't go upside down. He just needs to give it a try and he will love it. We will see what happens.

Hmm EE is really fun, it is a little intense but those parts aren't the whole ride... See if you can get him to go at least once... if he doesn't like it... it's done and if he does... he'll be thrilled...

Loved your updates, looking forward to more as long as the compooper will work!

Love it... the compooper is behaving tonight but photobucket is being a real treat...

OH yes the Ahi tuna was really good... hmmm... trying to remember what you have planned for your AK day... Yes that was a pretty good drink... I wouldn't mind another one of those...Thanks about the PP pics ... David is a little cheeseball...

No, we didn't. It was closed for refurb (January). Next trip!

(Also have recently gotten a bit into Facebook and Pinterest... so trying to balance...

Also pretty sure I may have a bit of ADD... so really trying to get my routines all organized and structured...

Any and all input/advice Welcome...
I SO UNDERSTAND THIS! It's my constant battle. Juggling all the little "extras" I do on the computer. The only thing that works for me is dedicating a bit of time each day to stay up to date. When I fall behind I generally catch all up by DISing for 1 hour per day, then update my own TR. After I am caught up, I only need to dedicate 30 minutes each day really to stay on top of it all, maybe a tad more for my own update.

We have never had a drink at the Dawa Bar, but have sat there eating a breakfast from the coffee shop. It's a great little spot for people watching, isn't it? I've heard the Lost on Safari is very good too!

Surely they will, if maybe for a little additional cost. The green beans intrigue me, and the cream cheese wontons will be a must, if we get in.

Totally agree with you about Photobucket! It is so horrible. Why change a good thing? What was wrong with the old setup? And Disney too?? Why all the change??

Yum! That Sugar Cane Mojito was so yummy. I had one (or two) in July and plan to make them a new tradition!

DTD, Raglan Road and Ridermakerz


So feeling quite content... thanks to a wonderful morning at AK (plus a little extra contentment brought on by the Mojitto ) we made it back to the Villas where David encountered his friend Ariel...



Oh David... methinks you have a crush...




Eric took him back to the pool... while I took a wander around the Villas...




Before we knew it, it was time to head off to dinner at Raglan Road... A place I've been dying to try for a while now... so I was really dying of curiousity...

Unfortunately the wait for the bus to come was a bit long (probably the longest of our stay) & We made it just in time...







Summary of Raglan Road... Awesome atmosphere... Great food...eh server... (I was covetously eyeing our table neighbors charming and accommodating server... I felt like I was breaking a Commandment... Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's superior Restaurant Server...) But we had a really good meal and Raglan Road is a delightful place... with a really beautiful bar that was brought over from Ireland... (We had hard cider on tap... really awesome treat because it isn't that easy to get...)



we shared

the Scallop Forrest



the Shepard's Pie/ & a Chicken Pie and







the very and much talked about Ger's Bread and Butter pudding...





this was so good absolute heaven... but so filling (it's one of those things you think about later and think you'd like to have some of the rest you had to leave behind.... ...


I'd like to see them offer a dessert sampler... with the B&Butter Pudding and some lighter options... (there was a lemon curd & meringue concoction I had been contemplating as well...)


WE would definitely go back...we did get to see a little Irish Dancing and I'd like to go back for more entertainment... I love Irish Music...




Waddled off... and made our way over and towards the Marketplace...

Where there were a couple must do stores...

Did not do goofy's Candy company this time

but the Lego Store is a sort of shrine/attraction to us...



Disney Store... I was thinking about this book (of course)



I still Have my Basin Soap with the Mickey ear profiles -I don't want to use it... cause then it will be gone...

I bought a Snow White tee I loved in Tren-d (I'll show more of it in the next update... Magic Kingdom Day...)



It's so awesome a shirt... I'm glowing...


Next door, Our ultimate destination...the piece de resistance... Ridemakerz...



Some of you ... especially if you have a son... may know all about this...

You get to make your own Remote Control Car...Which is very cool...





What is not cool... is just like buying a real car, you almost never buy the base car... you ALWAYS wind up with better seat covers or a better radio, automatic transmission, etc...

This was going to just be David's big souvenir but it actually wound up be part of his Christmas gifts, because we had to subsidize the cost differential...


But it really was a fun experience for him (& Eric) putting it together....





Next up: Kona Breakfast... and the MAGIC KINGDOM

You will really enjoy it... it's definitely longer...speaking of longing... I'm longing for a Disneyland trip...

Yes- I really need to set up a specific schedule too it helps me so much... I've been really addicted to Pinterest recently......it's like potato chips... it's hard to pin just one...

We have never had a drink at the Dawa Bar, but have sat there eating a breakfast from the coffee shop. It's a great little spot for people watching, isn't it? I've heard the Lost on Safari is very good too!
Yes... I've heard that as well... we obviously have plenty of friends on Dis who have tried quite a variety of the adult libations......

Thank you about the picture and thanks for posting... I've lurked on quite a few of your trip reports but they've always gotten so long by the time I've found them that I've been intimidated...I'll have to get in on the beginning of one... hopefully you have a trip coming up...

Yak and Yeti is the lone AK restaurant we have not eaten at.

Oh do go... You will enjoy the atmosphere and they really are quite accomodating...

I am extremely irritated with Photobucket right now... I just need the old format back for a little longer... (couple of months... till I have the time to play around and figure out the new one...

Yum! That Sugar Cane Mojito was so yummy. I had one (or two) in July and plan to make them a new tradition!
YES! Don't you think they should make T-shirts for them?

I agree with you about Photobucket. Everyone seems to be displeased with the "new" one. It blows. We have a trip coming up soon and I was wondering if I should switch over to Flickr, but I have so much invested in Photobucket that I am not sure I WANT to switch.

I guess I will have to wait and see if they work things out between now and then. I understand that the pictures are all out of order and that is very crucial to me and all of us who write trip reports. We tell the story through our photos and if they aren't in the right order .... well that is a deal breaker. Also, the size of the photos seems to be an issue as well.

Raglan Road is a favorite of ours, too...the food, the music, the dancing! That bread pudding is SO good!

No Goofy's Candy Company? Say it ain't so!?!?

I just looked at the calendar and realized that in exactly 2 weeks I will have the very good fortune of landing in Rome, Italy for a week of Spring Break with Hatter, Rabbit and Alice...



Roman Fountain, Italy Pavilion, Epcot



& I also realized that I am further behind on this TR than I'd like to be (as well as behind on finishing an old PTR (2010) that I realized was still open about our trip to Paris and Disney Land Paris... & I made myself a promise that I would finish that one for personal closure. So I before we go, I have to finish my old PTR, & move ahead with this current one.

Because I'd love to start a PTR when we get back for our July Southern Road Trip to Disney; with a little bit in the beginning about Rome (but I can't handle three TRs-so before we go I have to finish the old one (2010) and I also I need to get this TR train moving... (chug...chug...)

And So...It is...

Time for Breakfast at Kona & Our Day at my favorite Disney Park and the Happiest Place on Earth... The Magic Kingdom...


Despite Eric's enduring faith in the Disney Transportation System, I was uncomfortable with the contortions we'd have to make to get to the Poly for our 7:30 reservations for our Kona Breakfast... So we ended up cabbing over to the ever lovely Polynesian... ( a little earlier than I thought necessary but Eric really wanted to ensure our promptness...)

Hello Poly! I've missed you and that scent and sound of water that you emanate... (Why is it than when we go into other Dis resorts I always feel lonesome for them... I was perfectly content at the Beach Club but now I'm eyeing up the Poly with a certain covetous feeling...



David Drums



David & a Buddy...



Have to Get the Resort Tree Shot...



Wow... I really need Breakfast... & there is Kona...

Kona Sign



Unfortunately we are about a half hour early so we have a little time to peek around... see them setting up the Ohana Character Breakfast and just admire the inside of the lobby... but we are all really starving... and my need for caffeine is getting serious...


I think we were all wanting to be seated and I might have made a sarcastic comment to Eric about being late...



Mercifully, 7:30 came and we were seated...

Now a lot of people come here for the Tonga Toast which is very good. However my real love here are the Macadamia Pineapple Pancakes... with the Macadamia Nut Butter... But not wanting to go into a carb coma... I split with Eric who got the Big Kahuna... Eggs, Potatoes, Sausage, Biscuit, etc... I believe I also order fruit & David had plain pancakes with syrup....





The other thing that makes me oh so happy here is the Kona Pressed Pot



Oh yes... You have no idea how happy I am to see you...



Full and Fully Caffeinated... we were able to walk right out and get on the monorail to make Rope Drop for the MK



Why do I always feel like I'm going to cry when I see this? (not because I want a new camera... but because I'm a total sentimental goober for the Magic Kingdom...)





& a Waiting Eric is planning & scheming Eric... (Hmmm... how long will it take us to get to our Destination???



David just contentedly in his own thoughts while sporting his rather dapper Goofy hat...





And it's Open... Down Main Street...






Stopping for a quick photo in front of the castle...




First Destination in site... New Fantasyland...

...

I'm really unhappy right now... I can't figure out what's going on ... I need some time to really play around... I don't want to upload a lot more photos either... same situ with a trip coming up and I don't know what to do with the photos till I at least figure it out...

I guess I will have to and see if they work things out between now and then. I understand that the pictures are all out of order and that is very crucial to me and all of us who write trip reports.

Sigh I know if you figure it out please let me know...

I am sorry I got two updates behind. Catching up on everyone's TR now.

Congrats on two weeks until spring break. Can't wait to hear all about your trip!

Love your Raglan Road dinner. I am looking forward to eating there again this summer. The last time I ate there I didn't get a good view of the dancer and musicians.

What little boy doesn't want to make their own car?

Yummy breakfast!
