    We are home! I am kinda sad and kinda glad about that!

    This morning I cancelled Kona because the kids were so tired, no sense making them get up early just so I can have the macadamia nut pancakes and pressed pot coffee...there is always time for that on the next trip!

    The girls and Todd slept in while I went to Capt Cooks. Two boxes of Fruit Loops for Kayla (one for lunch just in case), the kids french toast for Adrianna, cheese danish for DH and a cinnamon bun for me.

    Na said the breakfast was very good

    The cinnamon bun was so fresh and soft, just perfect!

    Todd said the cheese danish was AWESOME, heavy on the cheese and light on the danish!

    We checked out of the room and the kids were so sad, they wanted to stay for a few more days! They are also asking when can they go back and can they stay in the same room!

    We made it to AK for the 9am opening and it was a cool morning but not cold and the sun was out. The park was very crowded but we did a walk on for everything. First up was the Safari, lots of animals out there. On the way to Asia I had to get a frozen chai....these things are incredible and totally worth going to AK just for them! Na had a raspberry ice tea and Kayla had a huge blueberry muffin.

    I think the most fun thing for them was the Nemo show...the little one LOVED it! We had seats three rows from the front, it was PERFECT! We walked on Its Tough to Be a Bug and the Dino ride too.

    DH and I were starving around 1 so we went to Flame Tree BBQ...been a few years since we ate here and it was just fantastic! The food was soooo good! Todd had the BBQ beef and I had the BBQ pork, he ate the beans and cole slaw and we shared the most delish onion rings ever! We love this place! I know we will be back in Oct for lunch here again and a frozen chai too!

    On the way out the girls had popcorn and Todd had a Mickey Bar....the perfect end to a great vacation! Nice quiet ride home, we played WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART the entire way home. Na's was Rockin Roller Coaster and Kayla's was Tutle Talk with Crush. The girls were sad when we dropped them off, lots of hugs and kisses and see you laters (we live 20 minutes from them).

    Thanks for reading everyone, now just 39 more days until we go Live, the adult only version of a dining report from the Poly! Stick around! We have dinner plans for Le Cellier, Tonys at MK, San Angel Inn, Whispering Canyon, Chef Mickeys breakfast and who knows what for CS!

    As always, enjoyed your report Nicki. I'm glad the girls had a good time. And look--YOU SURVIVED IT! :goodvibes
    Anxious for your next set of reviews--especially LeCellier--our favorite on the dining plan and what you think of Whispering Canyon (we didn't like it).

    Sorry, Nicki...we're taking a little sidetrack here.
    TigerKat, I can't remember what I had--but it was a really good strawberry thing. They have a DJ after 9:00 (at least they did when we were there).

    Thank you! They sure did have a great time, just one little bump in the road but all else was perfect!

    Now that sounds PERFECT!

    Ooh I love hearing about cocktails, get as side tracked as you want babe!

    WOO! Sushi is one thing that we have not done yet....any pointers for newbies?

    Thanks my friend! Review to start in about 37 days or so!

    I can't believe I didn't know you had a TR going on!! I caught up over the weekend and loved every bit of it, as always. What lucky nieces you have and it sounds like they really appreciated it!

    I have had a hankering to stay at the Poly for a while now and you have totally reinforced that!

    I am literally marking my calendar so I can be on the lookout for your next TR. Your plans sound great!!

    Thanks for sharing!!! :)

    I can't believe it's over already :sad2: Reviews & pics were awesome as always. You and Todd are really amazing to take the girls (even if your Sis is a PITA at times ;) ) They will have such wonderful memories from this :goodvibes

    Breakfast at Captain Cooks looked good. I've heard they have Tonga Toast, did you see it on the menu? is it the same as Kona's? If I were to head to the Poly for breakfast, I'd just go to Kona's but DS would probably be willing to swing by for a quick order.

    Glad you enjoyed Flame Tree! We always enjoy it (I don't like their beans though). The onion rings looked really good :thumbsup2 I'm gonna have to try one of those frozen chai's this summer.

    Thanks for another awesome report! I'll be watching :hourglass until it's time for you & Todd to :drive: back to the World :goodvibes

    Thanks for the great TR! Unbeknownst to my DH, I am planning our next trip to include a stay at the Poly! Great reviews, glad your niece was ok after her stomach bug. I have two DDs and travelling with kids is an adventure :) I know my girls loved going to WDW with their D-Uncle back in December; it sounds like your nieces will always remember and appreciate the trip.
