    Welcome! I can't wait to hear about your plans! We will be there after you though, not until the 18th.

    They say Shutters just got a new head chef - one off of one of the Disney cruise ships. I have never eaten there (I stayed at CBR twice and I don't think I even knew it was there), but supposedly it was really bad and now is much better.

    This is what I tell the kids when they say all summer long that they can't wait for Disney! I say don't rush the days because then it will be over - just enjoy the anticipation and all life offers in between.

    Now if I could only figure out how to take my own advice it would be all good :lmao:

    Looks great! And yes, you can watch the fireworks from the Poly beach.

    At Ohana, if you have a Stitch plush or anything - TAKE IT. Great interaction! Lilo and Stitch both. :)

    I've only seen these on the Skechers site for flip flops:http://www.skechers.com/style/13558/skechers-on-the-go-escape/wbl So the recovery ones might just be mens shoes? :confused3

    I'm gonna have a hard time calling it Disney Springs. That sounds like a resort, not a downtown shopping and entertainment district. Hello, it's called Downtown Disney for a reason!!

    I agree! Downtown Disney is better.

    Lol. I know! But I have a hard time every time they rename something. To me we still have:

    Disney Village Marketplace
    The Wedway People mover
    Priority Seating
    MGM
    and
    LOS passes (or passports even!)

    All this means I will be using the term springs in about 5 or 6 years ;)

    I have women's flips. Amazon has them. http://www.amazon.com/Montrail-Wome...=1363298639&sr=8-1&keywords=montrail+molokini

    The 5 fingers seem to be a love/hate thing with people. They feel different, yes but in the most wonderful way. If it was socially acceptable (and not gross) to walk around barefoot, I would. I have lousy knees and ankles from years of gymnastics and I feel very sure footed when I wear them.
    It is very important to get the right size. They explain how to measure your feet on the Vibram website and you may wear a different size in different styles. The material around the toes is like a substantial pantyhose material :confused3. I don't notice it at all, but some people can't stand it.
    They tell you to wear them for short outings and work up to all day wear. My legs were sore the first few times, just from using different muscles to walk. Now I love them.

    Finally pulled the trigger and booked our vacation today :cool1:

    Plans changed a bit - we decided on 08/13-08/15 at Art of Animation (Little Mermaid room, which my boys aren't too happy about ;)., but that's the only section with standard rooms). Then DH joins us for 08/15-08/20 at Poly - GV CL room. So excited :banana::dance3::yay:

    Current ADRs:
    08/14 - Ohana at 5:05pm
    08/15 - Chefs de France at 1:10pm
    08/16 - T-Rex at 1:00pm
    08/17 - Crystal Palace (not reserved yet)
    08/19 - Via Napoli at 12:45pm

    Planning on hitting BOG for lunch on 08/14. Now, come on August :thumbsup2

    Isn't it weird that all my ADR's are visible on my dining experiences again after disappearing during whatever was going on last week except.....BOG. Should I be alarmed? I don't feel like calling Disney again!!!

    I live in my Disney Crocs at Disney and so do my 2 boys. They are the best shoes for me in August.

    It's about time you stalk me back! :rotfl2:

    It will always be MGM to me :upsidedow

    MDE makes me nervous almost every time I check it. And when it's not making me nervous, it just makes me mad! My countdown was off for over a month on there, so I called a day early for my ADRs. :badpc: It's no fun getting up at 6am and staying on hold for 45 minutes to be told I have to do it again tomorrow!

    I just booked CBR for August 14-24, with a Bounce Back offer. 30% off.

    pretty excited.
