    It's lookin' that way.

    Wow, that was short-lived!

    Thanks for pointing that out to him. :thumbsup2

    Hi PJ! :welcome: I'm glad you join-in for my TRs, but you're allowed to read others. :laughing:

    I hope you get to WDW next year also!

    Well, in post #233 she detailed where each one could be found and mentioned that the chapter was two separate posts (in a vain attempt to get a second point), so we the Rules Committee will leave the point with her.

    I just did. :teeth:

    Your room looks lovely. When I was there, we stayed in a very tiny room with two Queen beds so it's nice to see that not every NYC hotel room is just all crammed in there like an apartment. Sorry to hear about your heating problems though I think most hotel rooms are generally VERY cold especially during the summer (I'm guessing you were there during the "record highs").

    So funny you guys got in with a crazy Taxi driver. They really are EVERYWHERE and most others were the same way, but I think you got to be a little crazy and daring in a place like New York. :confused3 The restaurant looks adorable and the food looks great. Indian food truly is some great yet unique tasting food :-)

    Awesome to hear you guys saw Wicked and up close in the Orchestra seating. I saw it in the mezzanine (balcony) and thought it was fantastic from there, but from your pictures it looks almost better. I mean, especially when you are looking at the stage straight on instead of down upon. The dragon is pretty nifty and I love how they used those wires, lots of awesome surprises. Love all the other pictures from the Gershwin you got too, the map was probably one of the coolest things I saw. Glad to hear you guys made it out of there without being trampled as it seemed you came close!

    Times Square truly is beautiful at night is it, unless you are trying to walk around then it is dangerous... just saying. That's so cool about the hotel not having a thirteenth floor. I've heard things about hotels doing that, I wished I had looked at where I was staying.

    Can't wait to read more! :mickeyjum

    :rotfl2: I'm picturing lots of writing of stories straight out of Blazing Saddles. "More beans GreatBiscuit?"

    I've suggested that. ;) Marlene seems more interested than Lauren.

    I would be compelled. I would!

    You must have been in stage-crew-geek heaven! :cloud9:

    Biscuit, Biscuit, Biscuit. Get thee to an Indian restaurant! Try any of the following: vegetable korma, butter chicken, chicken tikka masala, tandoori chicken, and get some naan (flatbread). You won't regret it.

    Thanks for saying so GB!

    Glad you liked it! I'm sure you'd love it.

    Sounds like that guy has a very interesting life!

    You're welcome for the welcome. ;)

    We own at Animal Kingdom Lodge.

    I think it was a good trade. Not too many points, a great location, no hassle.

    Not a problem at all that you didn't catch it earlier. :goodvibes

    The Rules Committee bends over backwards for you Rosie!

    Because you're so sweet and innocent. :rolleyes:

    He definitely did. You need to remember that -- he can be a nice guy. :angel:

    I don't know if every NYC hotel room is that spacious....this place was actually a timeshare, so it might have a few more amenities than your average hotel room.

    I'm not sure if the ladies just couldn't figure out how to turn down the A/C or what. :confused3 I quite often go into hotel rooms for the first time and have to turn the A/C and fan down, or the thermostat or something. It seems like the housekeepers like to crank it.

    They were in New York from June 14 to the 17th. It was perfect weather....the heat wave came a couple of weeks later.

    I think you're right -- to survive in that traffic, you have to match their style and pace of driving.

    It's downright good!

    Unfortunately I can't comment...since this is Lauren's Dad posting and I wasn't there. You know more about it than I do!

    I've seen some hotels with a 13th and some without. You never know.

    Great!

    Sorry I'm a little behind on the update.

    The room looks really pretty...and big. I hate when rooms are so cold though and you can't get the temp adjusted.

    Lauren cracked me up on the cabdrivers...they are just like that in Downtown Chicago...I pray for my life every day I go to work.

    Glad Lauren and Judy enjoyed their meal at the Indian restaurant (that and Mexican I just do not care for).

    I'm so glad they enjoyed the play (I've missed it every time it has been in Chicago). Great photos inside the theater.

    FYI- Kalahari in Sandusky would be closer to Pennsylvania. Great Wolf Lodge is nice too.

    Hello,
    Great report so far. The Naked Cowboy is a NYC tradition. Crazy taxi's are the norm. "Wicked" is my favorite. The room looks really nice.

    Looking forward to more.

    That shower is scary!! :scared:

    The room looked awesome! Very nice!

    The set to Wicked looked great, too. Glad Lauren and Judy liked it. I think any show on broadway would be awesome.

    Mmmmm...Indian food! I love it!

    Oh oops, I keep on forgetting while writing the comments that the true author of this TR isn't writing for this certain portion. Definitely a change of scenery in terms of how I comment on my TRs. Hope I didn't throw you off at times :laughing:

    No problem. I have no room to judge! :guilty:

    I think they eventually got the temperature up, and the room worked out really well for them.

    Really, you take a cab every day?

    Oh man, I love 'em both.

    They'd highly recommend it to you.

    :welcome: rachel09985! I'll go out on a limb and assume you're Rachel. Thanks for joining.

    We used to get promo-ads in the mail for Great Wolf Lodge, but we haven't for a long time.

    He probably needs to get a few more anniversaries under his belt before he realizes. ;)

    I saw that but didn't understand how you made the typo until you cleared it up....but I completey understand now that I have an iPhone. That autofill feature is handy, but can really mess you up sometimes.

    We love it too. When I saw that they were building Kidani Village, we couldn't resist buying-in.

    Hi Scott! :welcome: I remember you from Dan's reports, I believe.

    Yeah, I think the ladies got the real New York experience!

    I know, it's fun for me to read it from her perspective as well!

    You'll have more opportunities. For legit points.

    It was perfect for them.

    I agree, but this was the one they wanted to see. It didn't disappoint.

    Now we're talkin'!

    No, not a problem at all. I'm just sorry that you don't get a personal reply from someone in-the-know, but I'm getting her to write the chapters so that'll have to be enough!

    It was on her list too, along with something else later in the trip. :scratchin popcorn::
