    I am bummed about the drink, I even wrote it down while looking at the picture and then scrolled down to see that none of you liked it.....oh well, I don't know that I could bring myself to pay $14 for a drink anyways :)

    YAY Suzi for the afternoon break. We would love to go to the poly but just cannot justify the extra $$. We might try to go and see the fireworks from the beach one night though and check it out!

    Patiently awaiting the next installment..........popcorn::

    My dd Megan and I had the lapu lapu last tome....it is kicked strong...think I'll try Something else this year. Wonder if they have a Mai tai or banana mama...we'll see. But I love O'Hara and someday would love to stay at the Poly. Think I'll put that on my bucket list.

    Jonah's good! He's such a little flirt and charmer, so it's hard to get anything done. :)

    Sending pixie dust V's way for a good first day of high school. :wizard:

    That view is awesome. :goodvibes

    Those nachos look delicious! Sorry to hear you didn't like the lapu lapu.

    Eeks, cliffhanger. :eek: I hope you made it to CRT on time.

    Thanks for the quick review and picture of the pork nachos. We will be at the WL in December and I am planning to get over to the Poly for some of these. I'm glad they taste good because they look wonderful. Is that pineapple or mango or something else on the top?

    But I'm here finally. I would have been here sooner but we were racing on the weekend and I was running around like crazy last night trying to make sure DS was ready for school this morning. I've actually been running around like crazy for the entire month of August as we raced every weekend (7 races in 5 weekends!) and work has been super busy. Now that racing is almost done (we only have one more race weekend left), I will have more time to spend on the DIS and keep up with you!

    Looks like you have had a great start to your trip! Love the headband bling and bags. :thumbsup2 They are fabulous! :yay: How awesome was it that Suzi welcomed you!!! :banana::banana::banana: I can't wait to hear all about the rest of your trip too.

    I hope V had a great first day today and that A has a great first day tomorrow. DS is in grade 8 this year and was super excited this morning. :hyper: He can't wait to visit the different high schools this year so he can pick which one he wants to go to. We'll see how he is by the end of the week.

    Okay, I better get back to work now.

    OMGoodness!!! I saw the link posted over the weekend, but I was on my phone and for some reason it just wasn't woring for me to get on here. I am FINALLY here now... four updates later on page 8!!! :scared1:

    I am agreeing with Suzi and whoever else it was that said you are a celebrity now! :cool2: I can be one of the Disfriends who can say, "I knew her when...". :cool1:

    Your luck with BTMRR is about the same as our rainy MK days! :headache:

    You know, I always had the Lapu Lapu on my must try list...but I am pretty convinced it won't be the drink for me either. I like fruity and yummy, and I am a LIGHT WEIGHT for sure when it comes to alcohol. Glad you posted that information, definitely won't waste my hard earned dollars on it! Although, I am very much looking forward to trying a few "drinks of the day" on board the Fantasy next year! :beach:

    Loving your TR so far, D~! popcorn:: *BTW~ I am back on MFP now!

    So D, you should explain this because I'm sure people can't even see me in the picture. Everyone.....I am BEHIND the pole. I know...I know...good hiding place huh?! Can't even see me! :thumbsup2

    Those pics are great D. Thanks! It was a great room location.

    I just looked on the AllEars menus and found the one we should've tried. This is what the description says "Paradise Punch - Coruba coconut rum, Veev, pineapple juice and grenadine $9.50" That was the white frozen one with red swirls.

    Yeah, the Lapu Lapu will not be repeated. Yuck!

    I told you! They are awesome. And people...just an FYI. They have these at the Tambu Lounge too. That's the one attached to O'Hana. So if Captain Cooks is busy, try up there.

    I finished mine, but waited until all the ice melted so it was a little diluted. Remember the lady that stopped me to ask what they were and where she could get one. I told her "No! Don't do it!" :rotfl2:

    It was one of the highlights of my trip. You are more than welcome! :hug:

    :rotfl2: Too funny :rotfl2:

    But seriously...I was so worried about you when you texted that you were stopped. You had just horrible luck with those monorails that week. I know I am going to regret saying this....but we have NEVER been stopped more than a few minutes on them and we have stayed at the Poly twice now. I just love the monorail.

    Oh you definitely should. They are fantastic. It is a pineapple salsa on top. Yummo. Here is AllEars description "Pulled Pork Nachos - Polynesian chips topped with pork, cheese, pineapple salsa and spicy Mayonnaise". I would never have guessed that sauce was called a mayonnaise. It just tastes like a yummy tropical sauce to me. :confused3 They are $8.99 up in the Tambu Lounge and $7.59 at Capt Cooks.

    Well, that information would have been wonderful to have BEFORE we wasted the money! Why did this never come up before??

    I just love Tokelau. Right in the middle of everything. And there are lots of rooms with lagoon views. Just check out Tikiman's site. He has good descriptions of each view. Last year we were on the TTC side and that was very quiet too. But can't beat the view this year!

    Sorry you didn't like your lapu lapu. I probably wouldn't like it either because I'm not big on drinks where you can taste the alcohol

    If you want something fruity at Disney, Banana Cabana's are AMAZING. It's a mixture of fruit juices and fruit rums. AND it's definitely NOT $14!!

    I'm glad to know not to waste the money on the drink - sorry you had to be the one that did :( I do love the Poly, I'm thinking those nachos would be worth a trip over there - I've given up on trying to get a reservation at 'Ohana for dinner. I did manage to score a fast past for BOG for lunch, I'm looking forward to it. We're testing the new arm bands next week. They seem pretty cool from what I'm reading.

    I hope all went well in your sewing room today!

    Your afternoon just chillin' at the Poly sounds divine. Suzi is such an awesome friend!!! The Poly is one of those places I thought I would always want to stay, but honestly I have never really looked much into it because of the price tag. After hearing you and Suzi talk about it and seeing some of the pictures now I KNOW I totally want to stay there one day!

    Sorry to hear you didn't like the Lapu Lapu and that you wasted your hard earned $$ on it. I have never heard of it so now I am curious. Off to go do some research....


    OK...just found the recipe...it sounds okay....EXCEPT...I don't really care for dark rum...and while I like Bacardi 151, BOY is it STRONG. Oh yeah...and Sweet & Sour mix - gives me SEVERE heartburn/acid reflux. Looks like I won't be having one of these bad boys EVER! Thanks for the heads up, but sorry that you suffered in the process.

    Wow, you're serious that it is a crazy packed day with two ADR's so close together, and then the dessert party to boot?!

    Tokelau was our long house when we stayed there in January of 2012! I liked the location.

    Awwww, I'm sorry that you didn't like the Lapu Lapu! I had it for the first time in July, and I liked it. But it is strong and expensive.

    I have a good feeling! You're gonna make it!

    I hope her first day went well. I love high school kids! I teach freshmen this year; they were nervous, but they are settling in well now. My son is in 8th grade this year, so I have one more year before my own gets there. This October will be my first Disney World trip. I did get the Photo Pass+. May I ask what the editing entails. I understand the concept of editing pics, just wondering what the process is that I should be aware of that is consuming your time - thanks for the heads up so I don't wait until the last minute.
