    Elaine, I am so happy to have you here again. And I do consider you an old friend...you've stuck through with me on a lot of these reports.

    Thanks, Steph. I wish you could get BOG for your upcoming trip.

    Thanks for being here, Linda.

    Anita, you aren't late at all...just delighted to have you here.

    Thanks, Anita. Purple has always been a favorite color of mine (my bridesmaids wore a very soft lilac for my wedding). I really liked my dress; now I need an excuse to wear it again. :)

    :wave2:, Christine; thank you for joining, and thank you for the congrats. OKW truly has become our new home...we love it there.

    Hi, D. I was so happy to snag BOG because Mark really wanted to go back. I really liked the chicken dish; I also enjoyed the steak in December. Nicki raved about the shrimp/scallop meal.

    Yes, you need to make it a priority...it's simply wonderful.

    Oh, we must set up a DIS meet. I would love to meet you. We will have to talk plans once you are more up to speed on when, exactly where, etc.

    Thanks.

    Hi, Rosie.

    So glad to have you here, my friend. :)

    Hi, Millie; I couldn't forget to invite you.

    Just think, Mary, I get to do another PTR in September or October for a trip that includes sweet urchins. You will see cute Mr. Mark soon enough.

    Can't wait to be back "home."

    It's not the same when Ali isn't here. :)

    Tink, good to see you.

    Thank you for picking mine...it makes me feel :goodvibes

    Thank you for joining again. I'm going to try not to go too fast, but I do have to get this and my TR done in 30 days as I leave in 32. :lmao::lmao:

    :flower3: Lisa's here. Thank you...I really like our first day.

    I'm going to start Day 2 plans. I have to leave the office in about an hour to go to a wake/memorial service for the husband of a friend I have worked with for 30 years, so I'll only do the first part of the day.

    We are up to Saturday, August 17.

    We will do our normal routine, as always. I'll get up first, shower, do the light make-up (hey, it's going to be 100 degrees in the shade and I'm not much of a make-up gal anyway) and do my hair (which becasue of said 100 degrees in the shade will more than likely be in a ponytail the entire trip). Then Mark will get up; while he's getting ready, I'll run and get us both some coffee unless I make it in the room. We've ordered from Garden Grocer so breakfast will be in the room this mornikng.

    We will be headed here:

    We will be at the gates by 7:45 for 8:00 a.m. EMH's.

    We will head over and get Fastpasses for

    [​IMG]

    I'm sure we will ride standby right away too since this will our only Studios appearance this trip (unless things change).

    From there, Mark and I will split up.

    I'll head here

    [​IMG]

    While he'll head to Rock & Roll Roller Coaster.

    We'll probably then head to Star Tours (I probably will have something like a donut for breakfast so I should be able to handle it). Then, depending on what time it is, we may try to get into the Animation Studios before our ADR.

    We are having lunch here:

    Although not gourmet food by any means, we like the theme and the burgers aren't bad; and I love the onion rings.

    After lunch, we will fit in what we hadn't done that we still want to do: Animation Studio (if we didn't get in earlier), Great Movie Ride, Beauty & The Beast Show (depending on how hot it is) and The Walt Disney Story.

    Up next, our late afternoon/evening plans

    Yay for DHS! I just love the entrance to that park. So retro. Makes me smile every time.

    Plans sound great. Love that you two split up for ToT and RnR. At least they're right next to each other!

    We love Sci Fi. It's one of our favorite table service restaurants at Disney. Especially for the dark and cool aspect. It will be, as you said, 100 degrees in the shade. Goofy movie clips are always fun. Good burgers. EXCELLENT onion rings! When we were there on the 4th, one of our friends ordered the fried pickles. Something I always cringed at when I'd hear about. Had them once before at Cheeseburger in Paradise. They were surprisingly good. And Sci-Fi's were good as well. Won't replace my rings but, still good. :)
    Hungry just thinking about it...

    You know, you are right. I don't recall ever seeing Starbucks at Midway. Must be the reason why I always bee-lined it to the Starbucks at MCO upon landing. Not to mention just a nice welcome to the upcoming days. But, mornings at Midway always meant McD's breakfast. Something I never allowed myself except for those moments. Vacation=Bad Food! lol

    I have never been to Sci-Fi, but the theme does look very appealing. One of these days I will have to do it as an OOP meal. My only concern is that after eating here I will pack on about 10 pounds. My problem is if I eat ice cubes and wash it down with a glass of water I gain at least 5 pounds. :rotfl:

    You're doing a PTR, too? Busy lady! :goodvibes I cannot wait to hear all about your plans for this trip...it sounds like its going to be EPIC! :goodvibes And congratulations on 30 years!

    I also really fell for OKW when I was there in October. It is a beautiful resort with a really laid back feel. The main pool is adorable, too. The grounds are so lush...I love all the palm trees! And Turtle Crawls...yum! Oh...and Olivia's!

    Your DHS plans sound great!

    Great Plans so far. Happy 30th Anniversary. Our 30th was last year and we too were at OKW to celebrate it. Loved it there.

    Sounds like a great start to day 2 at DHS, but I would be heading off with Mark to RnR. :thumbsup2

    Sorry to hear about the husband of your friend! :hug:

    Again - I just wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss Kathy. (((Hugs)))

    Love your plans!!! I also love DHS in the morning -the entrace gate is just so awesome!

    We are also eating at Sci-fi this time - we have never eaten there before... I need to go look at a few reviews to find out what is good - I have heard not the stray from the burgers there? And this is the first I have heard of the onion rings.... Yup - I feel more research is in order.

    D~
