    Yep. Very wise words. :thumbsup2 I was glad you both posted over there, but sorry about the bizarre, negative posts. I guess some people just don't think. Maybe hearing your points of view might encourage a bit of kind, more patient tolerance. The world can always use more of that. :goodvibes

    :scared1: yikes! Always a risk posting on Dis sadly. I was flamed on a thread a week ago, the thread about would you use a TA or DIY!! I was flamed, for something I didn't even say! :rotfl: someone else said it but somehow this person attributed it to me :rolleyes2. I sent person a PM and nicely explained that I wasn't the person who said that, but person didn't have the class to apologize.

    I'd try Boma since it is an AK day. Go early so you can enjoy the savana. One time we had Boma ressies we arrived at Kidani first around 4, got there just in time for feeding time. Watching the ostriches and everyone chase the food truck was hilarious. Then we made our way over to Boma. Being a Buffett, there is a large selection, so even picky or less adventurous eaters can find something.

    :thumbsup2:rotfl2:

    Magic. Sorry to hear about your mom

    Wookie glad you are safe, and anyone in Boston. MIT shooting tonight :( bombs at marathon, the world is getting crazy. And snakes in dryers :scared1::scared1::scared1: that would do me in!

    I have some catching up to do! Been a crazy week here.

    I can't remember the CL hrs at AKL, but loved the offerings. Usual breakfast stuff, and hot quinoa cereal too. They had afternoon tea which was good, with scones, clotted cream & jam. Yum. Evening Appies were good, different each night along with veggie crudités. Assorted flatbreads and 3 different hummus dips. Wine & beer. Then cordials & desserts. Loved the AKL CL.

    Magic I am so sorry to hear about your mom. :hug: You are a great daughter.

    Sis love the ch-ch-change!


    I made a change myself! We are no longer doing the cruise. It's a long story, but instead we will be booking a bounceback in June for October since the dates coincide perfectly with my vacation time at work. It seems like it is just meant to be. :thumbsup2::yes::

    Good Morning!!! :goodvibes

    We had a super long day of travel yesterday...and didn't end up getting to YC until about 11 pm!!! We were supposed to be here for 8:30.....


    Anyway, upon arrival we found out that both us and our friends had been chosen as the YC families of the day! :goodvibes. We got a nice little certificate, and a boatload of balloons. :cool1:

    When we got to our room, we saw that there were chocolate covered strawberries and a white chocolate Minnie Mouse waiting for us!!! pixiedust:

    As you know, we booked a SV CL room, but we can totally see the pool?!?!?! So, I'm not sure if we were upgraded, but if this is standard view, I'll take it!!!! Plus our balcony is huge!

    I can't believe I am up right now, but I didn't really sleep well because I was waiting for that knock on the door with our luggage, but that never came.....I thought, uh oh.....but, our luggage is at the front desk, we got a voicemail and I just have to call for it. :goodvibes

    Our room is beautiful! We have a daybed. My only complaint is that there is periodically a loud clanking noise every so often.....I don't know what it is but it sounds like a fire extinguisher being slammed onto pavement or something....:scratchin

    I'll have to investigate that....but I seem to be the only one bothered by it.

    Well, everyone else is still sleeping and my friend just texted me asking what time we were heading to MK....so, I'm logging off for now! Gotta call for our luggage...:thumbsup2

    HRH is having quite the time. She's not testing well because of her anxiety...and I am struggling with special services trying to revise her IEP since she's doing fine...fine really??? she came off the bus and had a meltdown from getting a F. She tries so hard and she said the test get her mixed up....:worried: so we took a bath and cuddled, and I wrote a lovely email to the child study team and her teacher who says she fine :mic: She's excited for the neurologist since she gets to eat out for lunch :cutie:

    Will be back later and perhaps with an update on August plans. :-)

    :grouphug: Just stopping by to give everyone a big :grouphug: I have been watching the news all day and am praying for everyone in the Boston area. So, so scary! Times like this make me glad I have all of my DIS friends like you all for a bit of a diversion. :grouphug: and pixiedust: for all of my RC'ers.

    Jeanette - My heart goes out to HRH :hug: These poor kids go through so much and it seems that there are educators that just don't get it. I hope the neurologist can help some how. I feel like I am constantly updating Steven's IEP, but that is what we have to do as parents. Remember you are her biggest champion and she will get through this with you by her side ::yes::

    Koh - my friend just posted a picture of SWAT with guns drawn right outside her window :scared:

    I honestly cannot believe what I' m watching on the news. How scary and nerve wracking for the people of Boston. The whole city on lockdown....wow. I know this sort of thing happens overseas everyday but this is just too much. Really hoping they get this guy before he hurts more people. Hugs to all my RC friends.

    RCers, I try to keep to WDW topics on here if at all possible. I want to thank you all for entertaining my off-topic meltdown about mom's trip. It did, in fact, help to "write it down" and your words of support were more appreciated than you could imagine. Thanks again. :grouphug:

    _______:hourglass


    Mousemommy, I am SUPER excited for you!!!!! :jumping1: What wonderful pixie dust for a wonderful family... and congrats on being family of the day!!! :smickey: Have a awesome time!

    Thanks Dani. ;) And WOW for a perfectly timed new vacation. Sounds like it was meant to be! :beach:

    lol lol Koh1977... this is the change I was referring. And I know exactly what you mean... sometimes I have absolutely NO idea where and when and how I am staying at WDW due to one-too-many "great ideas". :rotfl2:


    Couldn't have said it better, Piglets Mommy. You all are the best. :thumbsup2


    Be well everyone. Hug your loved ones reeeeeal close. :crowded:
