    :rotfl2: That is what we are known for in the US. Funny thing is I have actually have had those same folks argue with me that KFC isn't named for the state of KY, shows how much they know!

    Has anyone done the Wishes Dessert Party? We are debating on doing it but DH isn't too thrilled spending $80 on desserts. But our DD3 is terrified of the sound of fireworks and we were hoping being inside she wouldn't hear them but could still enjoy them.

    Thanks.

    :lmao:

    Never did that one, but we had a scared child as well. If you are DVC members, TOTWL may still be letting up people to watch there. Before then, we would watch the fireworks from the entrance of MK or even over at one of the MK resorts to get away from the noise. Ours eventually grew out of it.

    We are going for the first time in December. I have not been but from what I have read this is an outside event on a covered patio. I know a lot of folks have posted that they take ear plugs for their kids to stop the noise. Hope this helps!

    We have never done the Wishes Dessert Party either. I would be afraid I would make myself sick eating all those desserts. :lmao: They look too good just to eat one or two things.

    The area is an open so noise is the same. The coolest part is this is the area where Tinker Bell comes down to, so you get a great view of Tink. I would recommend ear plugs for the kids to see if this helps.

    Just got back from a trip to TN for a wedding. We live in extreme NKY so we drove the entire length of the state from North to South and back via the I-75 path. What a beautifuly drive down and back, the leaves are changing and it was just beautiful. Sometimes I forget what a beautiful state we live in!

    It is a pretty state. I'd rather live in WDW or on the beach, but come back here for a visit certain times of the year.

    AirGoofy: Loved reading your live TR, just never had a chance to read daily like I wanted to. Hopefully it was enough of a Disney fix that I can make it until we leave the first of Dec now.

    I agree, this time of the year is beautiful in the state of KY & even IN. The leaves seem to more colorful than I thought they would this year. I love the change of seasons, but the older I get the easier it is for me to move south for the winter. Could easily make WDW area my home. :)

    Me too but since I have to wait until I retire I figured I would look at the positive.

    Not being negative about KY. But, if you could live in $1.5 Million home in KY or a $1.5 million home in Golden Oak, which would you select?

    We are going next week I will report back. In fact me and my grandfather are doing a Whiskey tasting with Jim Beam Global just before it. We have 1.5 hours to get from Epcot to MK with the pardae starting 15 min before we are there, wish us luck we may need it to get to the party on time.

    Thanks! My husband would love the whiskey tasting, but wouldn't do it alone. I'm too much of a light weight to join him, plus I only like fruity drinks. I want to do the Dessert Party but my husband is hesitating to agree to because he's not much for sweets and he doesn't think we'll get our money's worth out of it.

    I always thought the Dessert Party was more for the Wishes seating, with the bonus of desserts.

    Hands down FL! I would live there now if I had a job. My company has offices close to Jacksonville and we are thinking of putting our house up for sale and seeing if I can transfer.

    Ditto for us, we actually consider the desserts a bonus, we are paying to have a place to sit down that isn't too crowded and rest in an actual chair while waiting on Wishes.

    I wish I had that opportunity. I go online and search for jobs and houses with that dream everynow and then. I tell DW that if one of us loses a job in the economy, then we should just start over in FL. The only thing holding me back at this point is our children, and not wanting to uproot them from friends and the things they really enjoy doing.

    That's my opinion of it! And my youngest DD is terrified of fireworks so I thought this might be better. She likes how pretty they are just not the loud boom that comes with it!
