I'm here And so gutted I won't be there with you guys this August

Can't wait to read your reviews though Vicki

And, for the record, I loved the pretzel dog at Min & Bill's - we got ours without mustard though, maybe that was the difference

I love this story! My son (now 12) and I have been going to Disney World every February for the last 5 years. My husband isn't a huge Disney fan and it is a great time for us to bond and just have a fantastic time. It is awesome to see another mom and son!

Thanks! I think they only did it for a year or so. The woman I dealt with was wonderful (wish I could remember her name!)

Thank you! They mostly did it for birthdays, anniversaries, etc. When I called the woman that arranged it suggested the wording on the sign. I thought it was really nice.

Welcome & thank you!

I am sorry for the delay in answering. We took a somewhat spur of the moment trip to Baltimore this weekend to see my beloved Red Sox beat my husbands Orioles! I will try to post another flashback later this week!

As I said we went to Baltimore this weekend. We had the most wonderful "fishy" lunch yesterday. Honey seared scallops, clams casino, ahi tuna salad, fish tacos and a fish BLT. We shared everything and everything was beyond wonderful. And I still say it is all because of the Disney magic at Coral Reef!

I'm in! I'm so glad you and DS are more open to trying seafood options, and it is all because of Disney. I love love love scallops! The scallops at Kona are awfully tasty (preview of what I will say when I get to that point of my current dining review). Your ADRs look great and yummy! I'll be looking forward to reading.

Oops! I've been a bad Diser and not checked the Dining Board in a few weeks outside my subscriptions! But I'm here and comparing notes for the other days that you are in the parks. I'm so excited to see you guys again!

I love your back story since it could be my own with Em. Time is short and this could be one of the last girl trips for us as well for some time.
The Proud to Call You My Son card, menu, and diver greeting were awesome!

Less than 2 weeks!!

Hmmm... we are thinking of popping in to Kona for sushi ... maybe we'll give the scallops a try!

Looking forward to seeing you two as well! Just over a week for us! I cannot wait. Our trips only overlap by a couple of days right?
