I really should consider going to Fulton's one day because of all your past reviews about this place. I absolutely LOVE oysters, but don't know much about them. If you gave this rave reviews, i'm sure their amazing, so I must try them!

You got some pretty shots of the morning sunrise at AKV. You know what I just realized. I never got animal shots from our Studio Savannah view How does that even happen!? We got video but no still shots. But I think you took plenty for me.

Thanks! That last day was actually the first time I saw the hogs, but the Okapi were out often.

I've never reuqested it, but I'm thinking if they put us on the Pembe I wouldn't complain.

You definitely should go to Fulton's. I know from your dining reports and stuff you're posting on FB that you and your DH would enjoy it. I've even seen dining reviews where people got the steaks and enjoyed them, but personally we've always ordered the seafood and the soups. They're really good!

The bus arrived pretty promptly and we were on our way.



We arrived at our destination and since our reservation was not until 1:00PM, we took our time at things.





As usual, Fran wanted to hit the shops. I had something else on my mind, so we agreed that I would go on ahead and get some FPs while she moseyed through the shops.







Iím not quite sure where she found this map.



But this was so cute, she zeroed in our neighborhood.













So while she leisurely made her way this direction, I had hustled my bustle to





Turns out that the FP return time was right in the middle of our lunch. I called her and she suggested I do the Single Rider line and then get a FP. In case you canít read it the standard wait time was 75 minutes.



OMG! This was the LONGEST ever wait I have had in the Single Ride Line. I was starting to fear that I would have to bail on the line to make the lunch reservation, but in the end it all worked out.



I got two FPs for return between 2:30 & 3:30 I think, and we headed off to the Sci Fi. .

I love the dress. Did you get this at WDW? This looks very much like the dress I fell in love with at Tren-D. I am glad that the single rider line on Rock'n'Rollercoaster worked out.

OK, I would respond individually, but I can't believe that the only posts about his update are about the dress!!!!!!!!

I got it on the cruise line trip in December. They had the same dress in the parks, but it had a slightly different twist, but I was so happy to find something on the cruise that wasn't in the parks and after I bought it, I saw one almost exactly similar in the parks. Not exactly the same but really close and was very sad that I didn't have someting unique.

I would have worn it today for my meet with Jenny, but it was too cold.

I love the dress too and hope that I have many more occasions to wear it!
