    I spy Penguins!!!!! Have you ever bitten off opposite corners of one and then sucking tea through it (like a straw)?? I know it sounds disgusting, but if you haven't tried it YOU MUST!!!
    I get my mom to send me some a few times a year just so I can do it! :blush:

    YAY!! Big hugs! :goodvibes Take LOTS of pictures of your room/view/etc... We don't stay in our Royal Room until June, and I need pics to help pass the time :) Ha!

    Mmmm......Cadbury Flakes!!



    Oh, and to all those northerners posting about the 60 degree pool weather....
    I live in SC (although I was born and raised in PA, so I know COLD.) If you're going anytime soon I just want to forewarn you that we've had a cold front come through this past few days. Last week at this time it was 80 degrees. Today, it was 60 and dropping. I just don't want you to get your hopes up too high ;) We LIVE in flip flops year round, and today was bordering on being too cold for that. Granted, FL is usually a little warmer than us, but I just wanted to let you know :thumbsup2

    We actually used to bring a few tins of Heinz Baked Beans with us when my DD was younger, and a much fussier eater. Beans'n'chips (translation: "baked beans with a side of fries") was her favourite meal.

    There is currently a Groupon for the Characters in Flight Balloon ride in Downtown Disney. $20 for two people-it's normally $18 per person so it's a good deal. saw it on the all ears newsletter. You can only get it tonight and it expires on May 31st.....for anyone going between now and then since Downtown Disney is somewhat nearby with the boat and all from Riverside!

    If not, I think the full DVD set of Coronation Street would seal the deal.

    (Andre, my grandmother is from England - came over as a war bride and my dad was born there. I spent many evenings with her watching Coronation Street. LOL)

    Yeah, even jeans and a hoodie will be nice. Beats worrying about frostbite! We are there the same time as you! I really should get some lime green mickey heads before my trip!
