I'm here! Great start! I love Food and Wine trips, I'm trying to plot a quick Thursday-Sunday trip this October, but I'm not sure if it's going to work out or not, we'll see! I love your Disney bag, and yay for Wilderness Lodge!

Okay, I'm here to actually comment now!

I am soooo glad that you loved F&W! I knew you would. Maybe one day we can overlap a F&W trip and share some drunk little cucumbers.

Departure days are always the best. You're so excited when you get up in the morning. It's the only time I'm actually able to get up early.

How did you like The Girl Who Played with Fire? I think it's a great series.

Hahaha, I think the signature gate picture might prove to be a little difficult when you are seated all the way in the back of the bus.

I am so stoked to stay at the villas at the GF. I don't care what the points are! We've stayed there on points before, and that's without villas. Anything has to be better than that!

I tried so hard to get the welcome shot, but I was too slow to get my camera out. I was using my cell. Oh well, the main thing is I got on the bus and got there.

I can't wait to see the GF when its finally done.

Well, hey....who am I to argue with that, but I sure think it threw Gaston for a loop. He didn't know what to say!

I hope Max is feeling better.

And I have you and Cynthia to thank for the TR title. I can't claim even an ounce of credit.

So, we started talking and our chat immediately turned to the FLE and whether it was still open to the general public. She was pretty knowledgeable about what was going on (at least as knowledgeable as most of us on the Dis) and mentioned being an AP holder. At which point, I thought, what the hey? She looks an awful lot like Pat, so let me go for it. I started by just asking if she posted on the Dis, she looked at me like I was insane, and that was the end of that conversation. Well, at least I tried, right?
That's actually a pretty amusing story. I guess she decided you were a creepy internet stalker. That happened once with my friend Jen and I. We met some lady getting off the plane in Orlando and when Jen asked if she was on the DIS she said, "NO I hate the website" Awkward!

Every year I spend 2-4 days running all over town delivering gifts and the weather can really make it or break it on how efficient I can be. Am about 50% done, weather willing will finish today which will make the rest of my work week before Christmas SO nice! I do love it though, it's a fun time of year.
Delivery presents to the clients sounds like a necessary evil. I certainly hope the weather cooperated. I hope you were able to finish all your deliveries.

Yup - there's always that possibility for another girl's trip. Love that!

I agree. It was so fun meeting and really getting to know Pat.

There is just something so exciting about D-Day. And, no, my timing was perfect!

Doesn't seem to matter much, even when you get right on the bus, you sit there for 30 minutes. My flight left at 8:55 my time and we did text before I took off but I am thinking that it might have been when you landed as at 12:10 EST I'd have had stuff turned off. But by the time you were on the bus I might have been online in air, can't recall although I was very good about not doing FB and email until I'd run through one battery's worth of work project.
I've taken ME enough to know that it was an unusually long line and I heard a few people say that they were running one bus/driver short. It really was an excessive wait. Annoying!

I got a whole day there, but I totally did nothing with it. Well, I guess that's not entirely true, but I really did goof off quite a bit before I left for Epcot.
