I still haven't seen the Nemo show either. I think it's my little protest that they got rid of Tarzan Rocks, which I LOVED!

I got the chance to eat at GF Cafe in April for the first time, which was a nice little date dinner with Ryan.

LOVE that Tree of Life pic in the back. Is that on a certain path? We will totally have to find that spot!

Loved the Dismeet - and how you were all able to eat together - that must have been so fun. I must admit that I need to go read some of your dining reviews - I find it so conveinent that you post a link to each one, yet I rarely go peek... I really need to be better about that, because I enjoy your reports so much!

Love your cruise poses - they are so cute! Of course, you and Em are adorable anyways.

I am very happy about the TVs in the bus stops - I think it's high time they did that, it will be such a convenience to know how long it will be before a bus comes - because I know I tend to get annoyed when waiting for so long, I think I would be much better if I knew how long I had to wait when I got there. LOL

I can't believe you are only half way through your TR too... WOW! But it still seems like you are plugging along at a good pace. Can't wait to hear more!

How fun to run into other dis boarders like that! I'm usually too oblivious to notice people around me when I'm at WDW which actually comes in handy when there are annoying people around (or so my DH tells me).

We'll also be there in December. The 8 - 14 I think. Maybe we'll bump into each other if we overlap?

Wow, A LOT of animals out today. Who needs a safari hen you have a view like that?

Wait... was everyone moving around the table for the group photos? Everyone seems to be in different spots in each. Or maybe there's some kind of mirror trick going on.

They have Stacey playing at the GF bus stop???? Why would anyone ever leave? That is so

Mr Devine...

Love your Tigger shots! That ended up being one of our favorite meet and greets in January. We wandered down on a whim too because the line was short. Such a cute little area!

Cruise pictures are pretty corny! I was practically in tears at the hokey 80s prom poses the photographer had my parents doing when we cruised the summer! Your bend and snap one is pretty hilarious!

Even the food sounds so-so, I'm glad you enjoyed meeting more friends at GFC. Good company definitely makes up for lackluster food.

Still waiting for the dream-suite review...

Oops! I got a little behind again. I'm good now, all caught up!
(I'm sure someone said this already but...) "Mr DeVine" is called Bamboo! I saw some videos, not sure I'm a fan. He looks really ungraceful and aggressive... kind of strange to me. I guess I'll judge if I get to see him in person!
I enjoy Finding Nemo, the puppets and puppeteers are pretty incredible.
LOVE the pics with Tigger!! So adorable!
Kind of scary that the scooter would run out of power on a hill, how kind of you to help her.
Awww the animals being fed! Oh seeing that from your room! I sure would love to get a little pixie dust and a view like that hehe.
Great Dismeet/dinner and especially love the mischief. Too funny.

I ended up getting pretty behind again but am all caught up now.

First of all I did see on FB all the picture of you with Chad. So glad you all get to spend time with him and here's to hoping he gets to stay at FT Bliss for awhile and avoid another deployment. A big Thank You to him for serving.

Congratulations on getting Thread of the Month for Sept!!!! Great Job!!!!! Love the update you did with all the TR threads from everyone that reads yours.

Wonderful dismeets you are having both at WDW and Disneyland. Looks like so much fun.

Beautiful views of the Safari from your room.

Catching up because for some reason I wasn't subscribed like I thought that I was and I missed 3 or 4 updates!!

I have heard recently that Mr. Devine is gone already. Maybe it isn't true and he is just on "refurb" but I really wanted to try to find him.

Glad you were able to get out of AK without getting drenched on your second day. Your Dismeet dinner at the GF sounds fun! I'm glad you were able to add 2 people to your reservation. We've eaten their before and the food was pretty good but my DS7 who was our DS4 at the time screamed through the ENTIRE meal.

I hope you really enjoy your cruise at the end of the trip especially since you had to cancel O'hana for it.

Glad to hear that your son is home! Tell him "Thank you!" for serving our country and protecting our freedoms.

Lastly your "bend and snap" cruise photo is HILARIOUS!!! Did they pose ya'll like that or was that something you ladies came up with? I would have died!!!

Beautiful pictures from your balcony (this is where we've decided we are staying next year for our trip in August/September).

Fun dinner and DISmeets. I know from your Dining Review you weren't thrilled with the service or food, but always nice to spend time with DISer's.

***And love the poses on the cruise ship.

Oh, how I want to stay at AK... You had such a great view!!

Um, I love the cruise poses. I hope you have that bend & snap one hanging up somewhere in your house!

I realllly want to go to the GFC. It just looks so nice! Yay for closing places down with yummy food & good friends. It's a wonderful feeling!

PS, I'm trying to justify a late November/mid-Dec trip...since our February trip has all but bit the dust due to Rich's project. Maybe a shopping trip then?

Coming out of lurkerdom to say hello! I always enjoy your reports as you give me such great ideas for things to do on my own trip!

Your views from your room were incredible!

Lol at Mr. Devine! I don't think I like him as much as his female counterpart!

Can't wait to read more.

Monkey men in tights are bound to get anyone's attention.

Bubbles! Bubbles bubbles bubbles bubbles bubbles.

I know that his name is Bamboo, but I'm going to continue to call him He-Vine.....

Hahaha, awesome that Tigger did the tango with you. Just incredible. And fun. Em definitely missed out on that one.

No surveys = staying dry. Duly noted.

Hahahahaha. Oh dear. The bend and snap pose was great.
