    Oh! I don't like curry either! I liked Boma for dinner, but the service and the wine I had were the best part :goodvibes For breakfast, it was pretty much the juice. I'm still open to trying Jiko or Sanaa - next time! :thumbsup2

    That's good to know. I always think of yellow curry, which to me tastes like socks! :rotfl2:

    Whoo Hooty! for Close trips!!!! October is a big month for alot of us!:woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo:

    For this installment, I think I need to say.... "yeah, what she says." I really don't have much to add except

    YUMMY!!!!!


    Seriously my favorite meal of the trip, and pretty darn close to my favorite WDW meal. I did have a tasty meal at Flying Fish awhile back that I can still remember.

    I'm hoping to get JEff to Sanaa sometime soon. He is adventurous too so I know he'd love it. My sister and my parents on our trip next year? Not so much...... If they don't have french fries, they are out!

    So....... I was really interested in Kidani because I've stayed at AKL and loved it. But we are considering renting points to take my parents for their 50th anniversary in Dec 2011. Well, I'm 99% sure we will rent points, so now it's time to start thinking where we want to stay. I love AKL and think it would be great for them - they will be in their early 70s and this seems like a great place for them to come back mid-day to relax, watch the animals from their balcony, or find someplace to have a quiet snack or something......

    And I was not disappointed. I do like the hustle and bustle of the AKL lobby but Kidani was a mini version and I liked that...

    Plenty of little spaces to relax and unwind....

    But THIS was what I was most excited about today.....

    Now after all this picture taking, I needed some refreshment, some fuel, some energy, some beverage, some BOOZE!!!!

    [​IMG]

    Actually, Ellen, I think I took the same flight as you, weren't we first class??? Or did they put me back by the lavatory.... story of my life!

    [​IMG]

    Ellen has all the fancy names for this - I just called it "Freakin Awesome." Seriously, I was all "oh my God, this is so good," talking with my mouth full, shoving as much in as possible. I may or may not have been an embarassment to my dining companions. I'm guessing yes. It was THAT good!

    Oops, gotta run pick up Ally at school.. be right back!

    Kara....that is just how I feel about Kidani...I love the quiet as you walk in after a day at the parks....and Jambo is right there if you want the hustle/bustle of a bigger lobby. I do miss the Jambo lobby smell when I am at Kidani though :rotfl2: I guess I prefer, after a day at the park with thousands of people to come back to a quite lobby and not as crowded pool... Now I am totally homesick!!! I :lovestruc it there!!!

    I think I checked out that room at the BW once before...did they have backgammon or checkers set up somewhere too? I was with my niece so I probably wasn't drinking ;)

    EXACTLY!!!!! I HATE going to bed that night- because when I wake up, I know the fat lady has sung. I hate that B****! What time for lunch?

    I think the flavors at Sanaa are not as strong as at Boma or Jiko. The food is lighter, the spices are less heavy- at least the stuff I have had.

    Yep!! And the question remains...where will we Dismoms stay???????:confused3

    Good girl!!! I love that you're willing to try!!

    I will be over to read in a little bit! Tim & Ty are there right now- on a Mission trip with church- they come home tomorrow night.

    Well, here it comes...the last day of blissful DISmom time, as usual, here in an instant. Poor Cammie was up before dawn to catch her ride to the airport. So we had said our goodbyes the night before. I went over to the Marketplace to get one last of these-

    [​IMG]

    Yummmm....what DO they put in that granola? It is heavenly! Is it sesame seeds? Anyway....we packed up, and Miss Karajeboo said goodbye....

    And then....there were three. I packed up my locker to take down with me when we checked out-

    [​IMG]

    WOW!!! There's a LOT of stuff in there!!! Pods and I are totally set for our upcoming vacation! I am SO PSYCHED about my OL!! That sucker was HEAVY!!! I was a little embarrassed HOW heavy. Well- no biggie. It's not like I'll ever meet John, the smart guy who came up with the Owners Locker idea and picks them up and drops them off! Sure, i won't....I never meet ANYBODY...do I???? The valet came upstairs, grabbed all our stuff, including my very weighty locker, and we went down to check everything in for the DME, etc. And guess WHO was there. Another DISer....who is mostly a lurker....and whose name I totally forget, because I SUCK!!! When I was checking in, she asked if I was Podsnel....we had such a nice chat! And if you're reading this, PLEEEEEEEEZ say hello!!!!! Then, guess who ELSE came up and said hi? Someone who was collecting very heavy OLs????

    [​IMG]

    So much for skirting by an embarrassing moment. Anywhooo.....John was the NICEST GUY!!!! Of course, I was blabbering incessantly about how great his idea is, and how I fit so much in there, and I'm sorry it's so heavy....and he YELLED AT ME!!!! :scared1: Just kidding- he doesn't care how much it weighs- he's just happy everyone likes it so much. He asked us (me and the nameless lurking DISer (I SUCK!)) if we wanted to take a picture in front of the purple van- and I asked him to join us. Nice, nice guy- I hope he has ever growing success!

    Sean wants to go out for french fries- I'll be back soon-

    Ellen - these pictures are spectacular! :worship: Really, really good.

    I have been trying to respond to your TR since last night. For some reason there is something in your TR that keeps shutting down the safari on my Mac. Its crazy, but everytime I tried to open it at home safari quit. So I had to wait till I got to a pc at work, then it took me all day to post. The good news is that I am finally able to see pictures consistently at work! :cool1:

    Your meal at Sanaa looks almost identical to the one I had. It was so delish and I love the bread. So super yummy. I had the Atlantic chard as well and it was great. I will definitely be going back to Sanaa!

    You guys had such a fun trip but I really think we need a group ToT ride next May! Com'on now - let me hear a big :woohoo:Yes :woohoo:

    I can't remember what else I wanted to comment on because I'm afraid if I go back and read again I'll get called to do something and lose my reply. I have been trying for 3 hours to post and either can't get this computer or get interrupted!

    Phew! I am finally caught up again! Thank god for the links. I love links.;)

    Great review of the GF HT. I did the tea with Princess Aurora at the GF with my daughter....twice actually and at least the food seems virtually identical with the exception of the dessert. (We were all served cake).

    I will have to take her to the regular tea on an upcoming trip. She is sadly growing out of the Princess stage. But on the bright side, I could probably do 5 HTs for the cost of the Princess one.:rotfl:

    Those nighttime photos of the BCV have me missing that place like crazy. Sigh! I love that place!:love:

    We also got over to the Boardwalk Inn this trip...I really liked it too. I will have to remember to pop over for a nightcap one night!;)

    Great review of Sanna....another one to put on my list.

    Sad to hear the trip is coming to an end...look forward to reading along til the end!:goodvibes

    My in-laws want to stay at AKL at some point above any other onsite resort. I think points might be the way to go for them. Only problem is the dogs. They don't want to do Disney without me anymore since i make it so easy...but..they don't trust anyone but dh and I with their dogs. I'm thinking all these resort/food pics may convince them to go without me for even just a few days. :goodvibes

    You and me both Rosie!

    Ok I have a lot of ready to do but I wanted to put this on my list of TR. I envy you all getting to go with just a group of ladies. I want to do that. I have one good friend who is a Dis nut like me, well sort of not as bad as I am.:rotfl2: She will not go with out her son though.
    Maybe one time I can join you all or find some other's who would love to do this?:confused3 My DD's both like going and they are older but still just not the same, as I would still deal with their attitudes you know what I mean?:rolleyes1

    I agree Ellen--who don't you meet? :) Im the one who always runs into people I know from home on vacation. Sanaa looks good but the girls nixed that one for Oct. Who knows--once I have this AP it will be burning a hole in my pocket and I may have enough FF points to go on a free trip. Hmmmm...

    I've really enjoyed hearing about your trip; thanks for sharing it! I think it would be so fun to do a girls' only trip. :goodvibes

    Do you have to be a DVC owner to do Owner's Locker?

    Those were just taken with my little camera! The big key was putting it on a flat surface- we all REALLY need a good, collapsible tripod, i think! I have gorilla pods, but there is not always a pole or other something to wrap them aroun- KWIM??

    And how did I forget that we saw you that night??? I just realized when I saw your post- and while I was writing it, I had the strangest feeling SOMETHING was missing....:confused3 DUH!!! I'll have to fix that in my next post.

    Sorry you were having trouble on that page. :confused3 But so happy you can see pics at work, now!! And I'll see how ToT goes in October before I commit to a big Mom ride!:scared1: How about a big MAYBE??


    Gotta say....that is one of the BEST parts of having one- an OL means you will be visiting a LOT! :goodvibes

    Hi! Yea- I love that place (BCV) too. Glad I'll be staying there again this October before our cruise.

    And I'm glad you like the links- I think they help a lot when I'm reading someone else's TR (like yours!!!:goodvibes).

    And GO TO SANAA!!!!! It rocks!

    I REALLY HATE that witch!!! :rotfl2:

    I agree- renting the points is a good way to go- unless they're offering the big discounts and you can score a PIN. They have GOT to stop worrying about those little doggies!!!! Just GO!!!!!!

    Hi pixiedustmom!!! How old are your girls? I have a 13 year old son who has started giving me attitude this year- so yes, i know what you mean. Fortunately, so far, he is still enjoying WDW (and is REALLY excited about our upcoming second DCL cruise- that is his favorite vacation EVER!!) and he is still a good kid most of the time. It is a completely different vacation when you go with girlfriends- the first year, just Lonnie & I went- she was not a big Disney nut AT ALL. Even though she was (is)living in Florida, she had barely been to WDW! :scared1: I KNOW!!!!! Well, for me, that was a lot of fun- because she saw everything with brandy-new eyes- and she became a big fan of the Disney vacation. :thumbsup2 So just because your friends are not Disney crazed, doesn't mean they wouldn't want to go! :goodvibes

    :rotfl: i usually see people on vacation, too. I LOVE that!!! Too bad your girls nixed Sanaa- it's fun with kids for lunch, with all the animals outside. And hmmmmm....when's your next trip?

    Love sharing it! Thanks so much for reading it and always making comments!! :hug:

    No- you don't have to be a DVC owner- just that there are a lot of DVC owners who use OLs because we tend to come more than once a year. Lucky, lucky us. :goodvibes

    Ok I really appreciate the links to the post. It only took me a couple days to read through.:worship:

    I just want to make a couple comments even though I am sure they are way behind.
    First those bridesmaid dresses very quite similar. Both were of a floral design. Funny how times change huh?

    I love the new home and new paint job. Such a big spacious home.

    The food porn was so good. I enjoyed reading about it all and now I really want to try some.

    The drinks, oh the drinks. Makes me wish I had a few now. :dance3:
