Sounds like a plan HBG. Drive in to work this morning was beautiful - bright sunny skies - had top down on the car. PPF's storm is supposed to roll through here this evening. According to what I heard on the radio, we are under an "elevated risk for very severe weather with high damaging winds likely". Gee, doesn't that sound like fun? NOT!

I'm glad to hear that you escaped the worst damage from the storm, PPF - and glad that we could help you get through it with sanity in tact.

Everyone is quiet today! Are the Candlelight Processional dates out yet? I was really hoping they would go with a week earlier than usual and start on the 23rd. In 2007, we had planned to do it and my mom got very sick, and ended up spending her last 3 days in the hotel room , so we cancelled going.

It is a narrative of the biblical Christmas Story with a choir and told by candlelight in Epcot. Usually starts the Saturday after Thanksgiving. But I am hoping this year it will magically start earlier. Lol

Hi HBG!
Can you post them here too.... I just haven't found time to look at multiple threads..... love to see what you are planning.

I've seen a couple of really bad reviews for Be Our Guest for dinner.... that will be our last dinner at Disney World... made our reservations the first day that I could... now I'm wondering if it's the right choice.

Hi Debbie! Just curious about the reviews for BOG. We are going there our last night too. Getting that ADR was just kind of an afterthought; the CM asked if I wanted her to try BOG and I said, why not, and there happened to be one left for our entire stay! It was for 6:30, so I took it.

Here's the link for HBG's thread:

I haven't been able to get an ADR for BOG and the more I think about it I am not sure I want one. We have 2 picky eaters in our party that I don't think will be happy with the BOG dinner menu. Thinking we might just do lunch.

I had a very hard time with that one. The novelty of it was drawing me in, but in the end the menu didn't appeal to us, so we chose to skip it all together. The wait at lunchtime doesn't appeal to me either.

I agree. The menu is definitely not for picky eaters and I was kinda surprised by that being in the magic kingdom; but when in France...
I keep going back and forth about what to do; little daughter wants to visit ALL the castles, and I keep wondering if lunch would be the way to go? Our ressie is right before MNSSHP and we would have to leave there right after dinner. So what would I do instead of BOG? And don't worry, if I do cancel BOG, I will give plenty of notice and a specific time that I will cancel in case some one wants to try and snag it.

Hi Pultospal!
Thanks for the link... I will check that out.
I will find those reviews and post them here tonight. They are from another blog site that I follow... not disboard....
Both people said that especially the vegterian item was bad, so strong they couldn't eat it, and that the mac and cheese was so rich they couldn't eat it either... my husband is vegan, and if the one item on the menu that he can eat isn't good, I will feel really bad, since I'm the one that is picking the restaurants. I'll have to read more reviews......

We are already in inches of water still down here. Can't take much more. Stay sturdy. hopefully no more tornadoes.

LOL< I just realized that your user id said slower lower.....only in Delaware
Our updates on our phone rang through and just read "Seek shelter now! Tornado eminent" Or something to that extent....
