Ginny, where are you when I need you?! DH has had me calling WDTC daily trying to get CL. I usually never call from my iPhone and must have been in vacation mode when I accidentally dialed 1-800 instead of 1-407 and ended up on some adult chat line. After calling daily, I did get CL just now for WL, which probably won't surprise any of you that I changed to Old Faithful.

We have an "ADR" here soon at the marina so I have to run. Happy hour is calling

Hi and ! I too am toying with POR, but there is no availability for us either (we are using a BB offer). I have not stayed at CSR, but DH wants to one day!



Melissa: Hope you had a nice day with Sarah, UGH hate the fighting, I am praying the girls won't be doing too much of that this summer. Must. keep. them. busy.



Hi!! Miss you!



Jeanette: Thanks for the b-day wishes for Kailey, hard to believe they are growing up so fast. She is changing everyday into a little woman...literally!!
BTW....don't be scared to say it....



Hi sweet Ginny!!



Miss: Hiya! Yes, I hope she has a nice b-day even without a party, the girls in her class this year have been a bit...oh shall we say catty??? so she wants to just have her one tried and true BFF and their family over on Friday. And yes we are still at BC, but just between us all here, the resort choice may still be in jeopardy.



Willow: Ha ha! This was me when I called to change to downgrade us from BC...I just could not do it!!



Sue: Whoot whoot for online check in!! Hope it wasn't painful at the DR.



Koh: Can't wait to hear how your big reveal goes!



Wookie: 2075....you kill me!! And we have a Grand Caravan SE, tires set me back $650.00 and yes they are big suckers too! I am hoping that was a good deal, we shopped around a bit.
No, not too painful. Just a little pulling getting sutures out! But not going to get the results I hoped for. Surgeon said when he went in, the knee deterioration was more then what he thought, and what MRI & X-rays showed . But it should feel a bit better anyway. I do need a knee replacement sooner then I thought.

We went to Brown Derby last August for lunch for their amazing Cobb Salad and grapefruit Cake. We each had a Cob Salad for our meal and it is amazing!! Have lunch ADR again in August. Yum. Service was very good too.

I adore the fried chicken at 50's so sorry you had a bad experience there.

MM, we love it at 50's too! Just can't see us going back for a while... quite a while.

It was Sunday evening and we walked right up without a reservation and were seated almost immediately -- this should have been the warning sign.

We'd sat down and ordered, first the drinks then the mains. Had a lovely and not too OTT waitress named Janice. The drinks arrived when I'd heard a slightly odd sound coming from the table across from us. Hubs quickly looks at me and says, "Please. Whatever you do, don't look across the room." But then I heard it again and me being me, I looked. It's what I thought I was hearing -- a grown man retching and all the wonderful sights which go with such sounds. That split second glimpse. Eesh. The waitress high-tailed it out of the room when it was happening. (Seriously, nurses are god-like creatures. Lookin' at you Jeanette. I don't know how you lot can see what you see on a daily basis and are still able to eat.) Miss M thankfully sat there clueless and ate her meal. The only tables which knew what had happened were ours and the table to the right of us. They gave us TSM passes for our pain and suffering.

I think the worst part other than the actual SEEING it part was: they had a man with superhuman powers come in and clean it up -- then sat another party down at the table! It immediately made me think of what must have happened at OUR table before.

The evening was thoroughly topped off with a little girl at the table kitty-corner in the opposite direction falling off her seat and slamming onto the floor face-first. She was fine in the end but oooooof. The Dark Side was out in force that evening... I'm surprised we made it out of there in one piece.

From that evening onward, anything remotely nausea-inducing or even the slightest bit on the gross side has henceforth been referred to as "a bit 50's Primetime" by hubbo and myself. Humans will be humans but needless to say, we need a new table service restaurant to try in DHS.

Was he already getting sick when they seated you? Ugh. They should have cleared that section out!

Looks like DetTigsGal is leaving next week for the GF....here ya go! Happy packing!!!!








So happy to be of assistance my friend Know what you mean about it being closer to other parks. It seems a bit far removed....but still AWESOME!!!!







Thanks! And yep....gotta get this stuff grown out!!! When this Southern heat kicks in and we're in the pool half the time, a ponytail is the way to go Hope you're feeling better!!!





I agree!!! Awesome mod!!!! Can't wait to share my pics...






Feeling better today???




Most definitely!!!! I don't change my resort so much....I just upgrade and add days DH is use to it after years of aggravation. Now it's just expected






Thanks! Nice to be home....kind of We stayed at the Grand Park Royal Cancun Caribe. Lots of fun for all ages.






Since we live fairly close, we can drive. If we had to throw in airfare, it might be a different story. One year, we did 4 trips....and dare I say this....( it lost some of its magic ) Ok...I said it....no flaming....






I'm probably not a good one to give you advice.....my family lives for the TS restaurants....weird, I know. Love, love, love Ohana!!!! Love Kona, too....especially their crθme brule!!! BOG for dinner is on my bucket list. So....how much help was I???




Ok....did I tell you that we love TS restaurants??? We liked both of those restaurants, but then it's very subjective, ya know. Some people love Liberty Tree Tavern....but me, not so much. Again.....no help, was I??





You're too kind, sweet Janet. The kids were not in the mood to stop, get off the golf cart and make pictures! Of course that's not an option when traveling with yours truly 1000 pictures just isn't enough....





Hey there, Shelia!!




I need to stop procrastinating and get some household chores done myself. Faith and Jesse are still fast asleep....thank goodness.








Mousemommy Hey there!



Coffee is getting low....must make a run to the kitchen for some more, then it's back to doing nothing. That is until the little ones arise ...

Heather
Thanks for the GF pic, just did our online check in today, woohoo! Do I see a link for your POR TR? Yay! I'm so mad I didn't get pics of us for our breakfast meet!

I have to say, I really don't like H&V. It was, and still is the worst meal we've ever had at WDW, and the only restaurant I'll never go back to.

Good morning!

Back from vacation and of course, I am way behind on all my favorite threads. I'll be back to multi-quote later, but I wanted to dance a little with Candace - 6 weeks from today we'll be pulling up to our favorite Lodge...

Be still my heart! Sue, Sophie looks so much like our sweet, sweet Cocker, Paris. She was just a little one and as sweet as they come. I still miss her after all these years.

Sophie is beautiful!!! What a treasure.

Somehow, I knew you would approve

I know you've been trying to figure out where to stay for your next visit. We're very lucky that if available, we could stay at any CL, but we keep going back to OFC because overall, it's the best WDW CL and the best value, IMHO. We also love the theming, location, amenities such as the gym and the transportation. Our BLV Tower room without CL was the same price as the WL-CL room we switched to. While the room is smaller, the lounge area is larger and we end up spending a lot of time in the lounge area. It's a great place to leave DH when he needs to, umm, rest

I totally agree that OFC is hard to beat! I simply love it there. When we left, we said that we wouldn't stay anywhere else, but we really wanted to try CL somewhere else. When we finally agreed upon YC, we said that if we didn't like it as much, we would be back at OFC again. Well, YC CL was just kind of meh, and we should go back to OFC, buuuuuuuut, of course, I want to try CL at a monorail resort.....and thennnnnnn back to OFC.
