Just a short update on our claim with the airline, before I will do replies and and update tomorrow.

Our compansation went through and the airline paid 1200 Euros. 300 Euros go to the lawyers, but that still leaves us with

900 Euros (1200 US dollars!)

Yay for scoring a BOG ADR and being able to go as one big group. You are right - kids really add to the magic.

Now I am on pins and needles as I hope everything works out with your fireworks cruise. I know how much you enjoyed it last year and it really looks like a wonderful time. Can't wait to read all about it!
It was the perfect start to our vacation - having fun and doing things we had not done in a long time.
Not to take anything away, but we did have a wonderful fireworks cruise with lots of friends.

It's fun to see WDW through the eyes of a child, but I still love our child free trips! LOL
We really had a fun day that day and dinner was really nice too!
Since we always have "child free" vacations, this one was so different with seeing the excitement in those kids eyes - the innocence with which they enjoyed it was just unbelievable.

and you say seeing the kids having fun did you not see the bigger kid having a blast too ???

Also from being from NY I love the NY Mets logo on the floor !!!!
and we all had such a blast having breakfest with you guys even tho it was your second time around and also we did not use sunscreen either and i felt it and was avoiding the sun for shade after my turn every hole .
Jeff, first off, thank you for adding all the photos!
Don't worry about having to play catch up - I have to do that ALL the time.

Okay, I correct myself - ALL the kids (old and young) did have A LOT of fun.

You know, when we were last at the Hotel New York in DLRP we thought of you a lot. They even have a yellow cab for kids to have pics taken in and a real one outside. Reminds me of you every time we walk past.

We used to play mini-golf when the tickets came with the UK package. Now, that we have APs we talk about it but never made it back until this summer.
BoG is a really neat experience. We have been for lunch and dinner and both are great in their own special way.

Karin- the golf looked like a ton of fun- we have not played that course yet, just the other one.

And I STILL need to eat at Olivia's!!! UGH!!! What am I waiting for????
We LOVE Molly and Philip! Such nice kids, very well behaved and so fun to be around.
Ellen, you really NEED to try Olivia's. It definitely is a hidden gem, so laid back and nice and the food is really good too.
Oh, and go and try the Winter/Summerland mini-golf. Just remember to apply sunscreen before you go there, or you will be roasted like we all were.

Thank you for your kind words!
It amazes me how many people follow our trip reports and I really love to get feedback from everyone.
More coming up shortly, I had a lot to do last week, but I promise to post some more updates this weekend.

I hear the grey stuff is now on the menu.
The cruise was the perfect ending to the day. It was really a magical experience.
I hope we can get a lunch reservation (fp+ one) for February - the slow cooked pork dish they had was out of this world last time and we really would love to have it again.
Don't they have a Grey Stuff cupcake now? I was wondering all the while why they would not put it on the menu? It really adds to the experience to be able to try the grey stuff - it's delicious!

I'm glad you enjoyed your dinner at BOG.

I have a friend on the DIS whose daughter makes those bracelets and I bought a few from her. She thinks the money she is making is going into her "Black Friday" shopping fund. Little does she know that she is going to Disney the same week we are.
Isn't it funny that we both went to the same mini-golf course this summer? We let a lot of people go ahead as there were 6 of us (well, we were divided into two groups) but we had so much fun and laughed so much that people were queueing up behind us.

These are cute little bracelets - I wanted to make them with my pupils but can't find the right material. Maybe I can pick up enough once we go back to the US.

It were a few perfect days with them - such a shame you couldn't stay a little longer. But glad you got to go back to WDW so soon.

Ugh, what a mess with the fireworks cruise. Good thing you called after the first CM wasn't much help.

Awesome that you guys got Guest of Honor!

And I totally agree with you on the Peoplemover. That is definitely one of our favorite rides at the MK! So peaceful and gives you a chance to recharge while still doing something.

Dinner at BoG looks delicious! So glad you guys enjoyed your dinner there!
We were just happy that the fireworks cruise went off without any more problems in the end.
We just love the Peoplemover. Best way to people watch!

Dinner was really good. But we enjoyed lunch there just as much.

I said the same thing about Olivia's and OMG it was worth it !!
It was extremely hot those first few days. But spending time with you and your lovely family made all the sweat worth while.
Glad you enjoyed Olivia's. We just love it there and you can always walk up, they are very rarely fully booked.

Welcome!
You're not late at all, we still have more than 30 days to go.
Don't tell me about DCL withdrawal, we just got off the ship a few weeks ago and we cannot wait to go back. We have another cruise in 19 weeks and it cannot come soon enough.

I am glad you enjoyed the pictures of our MK day, Jeanette.

Well, looking back at the delay today .... I don't mind that much any more, since they forked over a lot of money for the delay. And business class helped a lot with passing the time.

Isn't the term Dalmation Day so funny? He picked it up on some of the boards he frequents.

How did you guess it is going towards another Disney trip? Should pay for the Hotel New York in January!

I am glad you enjoyed the update, Rosie. We loved BoG and Tom's pork was delicious, but the salmon was wonderful too!
Making those bracelets was not as easy as I initially thought. But Molly was a patient teacher.
Tom and I were thrilled to read about the compensation going through. Best way to start the weekend.

When we handed the case over to the law firm I was not even sure we would get anything out of it, let alone the full amount.
I was pretty shocked when I got the email yesterday, as in all the reports about compensation it said it took about 50 - 60 days to get anything. It only took us three weeks!

I don't think there are enough dancing icons to show how excited I am for you! Bet I can guess the good that money will go toward:
