Enjoy the pass!!!

My daughter wants me to make a reservation every time she visits. The food is good old fashion comfort food ... she loves the ribs and I love the fried chicken. She loves the fact that I drive so she can drink as many beers or wine as she wants. Its all you can eat and drink. I'm allergic to strawberries and told them so they brought me a huge apple shortcake instead. So good!

Dh and I were celebrating our anniv. We had our buttons on. Our server asked us how many years and we told her. I also told her that dh held my hand when I had cancer and was in the coma for 2 days etc.

Well a little into our dinner, she said someone left you this note and wants you to read it. It said:

Life is precious and part of life is bringing a smile to someone you dont know.

Hope you all enjoyed your meal.

Have a wonderful evening.

Someone named Erin.

Dh said he saw that she was sitting and dining by herself. I am so sorry that I didnt notice her. I always have a lot of pain and just getting to the table and walking is sometimes an effort for sure.

I was so touched by this beautiful, wonderful woman. I dont know if she is a diser or not.

Our server said that has only happened once before to her. I told her if she ever saw this young lady again to make sure she told her thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Our server told us she said she does this once a month and picked us because she saw it was our anniv.

What a wonderful magical experience thanks to wonderful Erin

We were exhausted from the heat today. Guess we are not used to this, so we just sat on our balcony and watched Illuminations. The trees obstructed some of the view but we were really happy with what we saw.

Tomm. I will stop in and say hi to Teena.
What a wonderful story!! My DH is trying to figure out why I am crying over my disboards... Lol.
Thanks for sharing! Happy anniversary too!

We still had several meals on our room card, but there was no mention of using them up before giving us our AP. We did this 5/24, so I wonder what has changed in the last week. What a problem. However, we used our Premier AP at Disneyland today and evidently the FL and CA parks don't link together, so we had nothing but trouble. Hopefully it will be all fixed by the time we go back.
That scares me - our trip to WDW isn't until the end of November but I was planning on picking up a Premier AP in September during a quick trip to DLR. I would hate for it not to work when I get to WDW. DD will turn three just before the November trip so I'll buy hers at WDW.

To the extent you sent me a pm, thank you - I am checking dis on droid, which never seems to allow me to check messages, although it shows I have new ones.

Our next trip to home is coming up in July, and my wife and I are planning on coming down a day earlier than the rest of my family in order to prepare for my nephew's first trip to WDW. As of now, I have a standard room booked at AKL for our first night, but now, as I always do, am beginning to have second thoughts about staying there. I already received my DME tags in the mail, my question is if we decide to switch resorts, must I request new tags since the ones I have currently read AKL? Thanks in advance...
BUMP!!!

I didn't see anyone respond to this.

Yes, I would assume you need to call for new tags if you decide to change resorts, but if anyone knows of a different work-around, please post.

Our stay is 6/13 - 6/15. This is a short trip with a very short planning window. Not the usual way we do Disney so I am not used to dealing with everything being booked up. With my recent knee replacement surgery I had not planned on a trip but who can turn down a free trip to a great resort. I am looking forward to exploring the YC.
Thanks for the dates- I'll add you to the list.

Yayyyyy for June! Now just 2 more months
If it is a breakfast reservation, I would definitely recommend taking a taxi. Probably the same answer for a dinner reservation.

Although you can take a bus from park to park, for me, at Disney, time is money and I like to spend every last cent of it at a park or the resort.

I will happily add you to the Be Our Guest list.

The Spirit of Aloha certainly elicited some interesting responses! None positive!

Do you have an upcoming trip you would like to share with us or have you stayed at the resort in the past?
