Love the Luke Skywalker sig. Very clever.
She did all kinds of funny sigs after that, I just didn't catch them on the receipts. I think even the day we ate at the club, she gave a false signature.

I love all the HM pics! Where is that Mr Toad in the cemetary? I looked for it when I was there last and couldn't find him.

ETA: I just read the post about your Kitty, Sunny passing. I'm so sorry. It's good you were able to keep her going for as long as you did.
Mr. Toad is in the very back of the cemetery off to the side on the left, you have to zoom in, but once you know he is there, it's hard to miss.

Thanks for the condolences, Sunny was a special girl and she knew how to eat, made her momma proud. Today we sliced up a ham that we cooked and had a sad moment thinking "Sunny would have eaten like a 1/4 pound of this stuff". Even though she only weighed 4 lbs, she knew how to eat!

I think David and I have tried all the different marg's in there at least once, and the Cucumber and blood orange one's have t be my favorite.

They used to have blue crab toastado's on the menu and we would order them everytime, but I think they are gone now?
I guess that was your TR where I saw that they had real "food". I was disappointed to see that all they had was chips and dips, but that wasn't going to discourage me from going there. Hopefully we can go back and try more margaritas, just with the queso instead of the rest.

Let's see... things that I wanted to comment on.

I was laughing so hard at the thought of that roast traveling cross country! I have a friend who I swear would do that. I texted his wife who laughed and laughed as she told me about his desire to attempt to bring ice cream, in the car, from Ohio to NY (she wouldn't let him try because ICE CREAM?? )

I am absolutely in LOVE with that Minnie dress. I stopped reading for about an hour as I searched the internet (fruitlessly) for it. Perhaps ebay or etsy...The search continues!

I was shocked at the MK view room - apparently all the pictures that I'd seen were zoomed in like crazy!

Also, I'm now really really REALLY hungry and only the world showcase can fix this - the arancini! the fish and chips! Les Chefs! I could go on for days (and I plan to on my next trip!)
Well, we buy those roasts when they are on sale at Christmas for about the price of a dinner of Prime Rib in a restaurant for two. With our limitations (ie: rest in the room), we need something to cook. I realized how much mileage I could get out of one Prime Rib and how many different dinners we could have and it was a no brainer. Other DVC members have talked about shipping down frozen precooked dinners, so I figured a morphing roast was perfect!

Yes, as far as MK views, all of the room can see the parking lot. If they don't show it they are only showing the zoomed in part.

I think Brandi answered this for you, but it's really small. People might not like it if folks who can't drink margaritas are taking up space for those who can.

We only made it to La Cava once and loved our Margarita. I think the Tequila flight would be right up my street. I think I have to plan a future visit. What a pain that our scooter was still giving you trouble.

Corinna
I think this was the last of the trouble (on this trip), but we nursed it the last day. We still need to buy new batteries.

You had an empty park at Harry Potter. Good for you.
Oh no. I get vertigo so the ride might not be for me.
Wow that is really empty.
It got crowded in 90 minutes but not too bad.
Bubba Gump looks good. There is one here in NYC but have never gone.
The resort is gorgeous.
The dinner at Emerilís looked good.
Okay sorry to say not a fan of rare meat or Kidani. LOL.
Great safari pics.
Awww, cute kitty.
I have never tried the cs at Yak & Yeti, always eaten outside. Maybe next time we will.
Great pics of FOTLK.
Sanaa is one of my favorite restaurants.
The orange side, you are brave.
Loved the living with the land pics.
I have yet to see Remy. :O(
YUM!!! Grey Goose Slushie.
When we walked back from jambo we would cut through one of the paths to the garage and take the elevator up.
The tour looked like fun.
The lobster bites or whatever the name is sounded so good.
Nice pics of the savannah and sunrise on moving day.
We have frozen creamed corn here in the Bronx. Come on by. LOL
The Village Gifts is cute and Gastonís Tavern is good. I love the Lefouís Brew.
Great HM pics.
Poor Mr. Toad.
Lucky you eating at BOG. We never made it there.
POTC is my favorite ride of all time. Neither compares to the Paris version. That is great. WDW is too short.
Yum!! Lapu lapu.
We were disappointed in ĎOhanas the last time.
Love the fog pic.
Nice TOT pics.
We ship everything home on the last day. Bring it to the merchandise area of the resort and have a receipt for everything and they ship it. Makes it so much easier than packing.
That Pirate thing at DHS is horrible. I agree not a do again.
I love taking boats at WDW.
Your meal at Via Napoli looked good.
I have to try that Tequila bar.
I just read it all tonight and it is great so far. Looking forward to reading more.
Thanks for joining in Scott, I just noticed your new TR, I remember on your last one saying you needed to finish up before the next one, I'll have to come over and join in the fun!

I'm having some vertigo issues and maybe that's why the HP ride did me in, but I'm done with it. It was cool and I wish I could do it again, but don't think I want to risk it.

I can understand not being a fan of rare meat but why don't you like Kidani? I think it is wonderful!

I forgot that I could take the elevators up from the garage at Kidani. Oh well hindsight is 2020

We're thrifty (Fran wouldn't want me to say cheap), but I think we get a better rate on shipping if we take our own stuff to the business office and pack it up. However, when she's on a roll in the parks, I just let her have them ship it, if you saw the size of the boxes or the amount of stuff we sent home, I wouldn't want to carry it around for the day.

Thanks for reading only a little bit left, but I think it's some pretty good times!

So glad you liked the fish and chips! They are so delicious with an ice cold beer

No sauce on a pizza?! That's crazy talk! But i'll take your word and try that next time. I think i'm trying like 3 new pizzas the next time i'm at VN

Wow, good for you guys at the Ditch. A margarita each and sharing a tequila flight?! Good times

I was kind of shocked when they put it on the table, but after the first bite, it was so good, I didn't worry about it!

I was able to convince her to go up to the Top of the World Lounge once we got back to the room.

























Fran headed right to bed as soon as we got back, she wasnít feeling good. I think it was the tequila and dehydration. I made this for myself for dinner and she passed on dinner. I watched the fireworks again, but didnít take any pictures this time.



After that I headed to the tub and then bed, only one day left!

What a view! WOW!! I was kind of 'meh' on the room views (much more parking lot than I'd expected) but these pictures? WOW! Seriously, there are no other words!










(And if my husband were to see that I was at a loss for words, he'd have a coronary since he's convinced I have chronic logorrhea )

What a gorgeous view! I've got to add the lounge to my to-do list. Michael would love it.

Sorry Fran wasn't feeling well. Dinner looks good.
