I wind up insanely itchy and liable to break skin
I'm definitely a walking information desk when it comes to MK

Even worse than leaving Disney at 3am on DME for a 6am flight is the fact that it destroys the ability to make the time change back home. Did it once. NEVER EVER again.

I can't believe they changed your flights like that with no email, nothing. Crazy! It seems to me one of my tracking aps (I think TripIt maybe) will update if the flight data changes. So glad you caught it.

That prime rib looks lovely. Yes, the only difference at Kidani would be no 2nd bed/bath. Love the rooms there!

Love the cute Mickey S&P grinders. And the rare meat. Yum! And the Opus One. Nice.


Kidani is my favorite DVC resort so far with the THV coming in at a very close second. Its so tranquil and beautiful. Here's hoping that real life and the issues it can bring stay totally away on your vacation.

That room looks great at AKV. Someday.....I'd like to stay there.
You're smart! You really should, once you decide to vacation out of commando mode, it's definitely a place where you need to plan on chilling in your room.

I remember our first time staying there when it had just opened and Jambo House still wasn't finished. The first morning we woke up we were mesmerized by the animals. All our plans went out the window, I went down to the Mara and grabbed us a bunch of plates of food from the cooler (along with coffee, etc) and we just sat on the balcony watching.

They were trying to film a TV commercial and there was a truck on the savannah stocked with "giraffe food" (branches). The animal care people were putting them in the trees to get "authentic shots", but the giraffe kept eating them out of the back of the truck because it was easier. It was hilarious!

That's awful! And I can see how that would totally throw you off. We get in at 7PM I think and that will work out fine. We will be totally exhausted when we get home, pick up take out on the way back or even just drive through. By the time we get home, make peace with our cats and get to bed it will be our normal bed time. Luckily we will be on East Coast time so the morning appointment with the Wound Doctor won't hit us as hard as it normally does. We'll be right back in our normal schedule.

Thanks on the Prime Rib. It took me a while to perfect my cooking technique. I realized today that I need to pack my instant read thermometer or I will be lost!

I love those grinders too! I have a Pepper one in my OL because I like them so much! Yes on the rare meat! I was wondering if anyone would notice the wine bottles.... We break out all the big guns at the holidays with my parents, there aren't too many other occasions where we have people who will appreciate them. I'm certainly not going to open a bottle like that for just me at home on a random evening! Perhaps on a trip when you and Michael visit we can bring the wine and enjoy an adult meal say at Steakhouse 55 with a bottle from our cellar!

Sort of hard not to notice a bottle of 2000 Opus One Opus One, forget the year, was the first bottle of wine Michael and I shared as a couple.


That would be fabulous. Dinner, nice wine, good friends, rare meat.....perfection. Do you parents enjoy wine too?


That OL must be nice to have. You can leave all of the fun/practical things and not having to worry about packing them over and over. I'd for sure have a crock pot in mine. What do you keep in there?

I'm in. And YOU ARE GOING! Sending you and Fran all kinds of positive vibes!

Loved your other reports. Plus we need another dose of WDW TR, since I don't know that a WDW trip is in the works for us this year. DH is very disappointed. Too many other things happening...although my niece will be there this summer for her college program.

AND now I'm inspired to pack my suitcase with food on our trip to Aulani. We leave in 4 days and your frozen prime rib is true genius. Can I do this? Write sub plans for 3 days and freeze and pack food in 4 days?

You inspired me Alison! I'm packing an extra suitcase filled with bottled water and snacks!!! That's as close as I'll ever get to being a "cook the food" person!

Don't tease us Alison!

As for the beef shot - totally mesmerizing since it totally reminds me of a black hairstyle called - Chini Bump(China - but said the other way by Jamaicans - insert sigh )

I should go get a pic just to show you I'm not crazy to compare your Christmas Prime Rib to a hairstyle.

CAN. NOT. WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For the trip not for the comparison. Insert wink.

I'm glad that you made it over here. We should have no problems on the Prime Rib. I really need to get working on packing the rest of the stuff now!

That's a nice first bottle of wine!

My parents got me into wine. They have been in a wine tasting group ever since we moved to California.

We keep some large practical stuff in the OL, a special pillow for me, some other HA devices for Fran. Then we have stuff like ziploc baggies, laundry soap pods, bounce, shampoo, conditioner, a butter dish, measuring cups, pepper grinder, kosher salt, paper plates, a bunch of other stuff.

Thanks! How fun! A trip to Aulani! I would totally pack something in the suitcase if you're going directly to Aulani. Prices in Hawaii are sky high! Stater Bros. has Ribeyes on sale for $4.99/lb this week!

It makes sense. That way you don't have to pay insane amounts for snacks from the Mara or the gift shop.

*not my picture

Yes it's late. And yes my brain needs sleep.

But this is where it went "hey that post roast looks like a hairstyle! Jean doesn't think one looks like the other! Oh well. (EDIT: Jean thinks the roast looks like when one *starts* growing their hair rasta. Which I'm sure you're doing for your vacation, eh Alison? Laughing. )

I should stop posting NOW.

In a strange and perverse way I can see the comparison!

Now I see your edit, no I will NOT be going Rasta on my vacation, we have a family living down the alley from us who have huge long nasty dreds and they even have their kids who are under seven years old growing their hair like that. Not my style....but to each his/her own.

And yes, you should stop posting now!
