    Anyone just back try the new sushi offerings at the Kona counter? Just curious about your thoughts on that. Hope it's still available next summer!

    TIA!

    We checked in on the 7th and we we're upgraded to CL MK view! We are loving it, especially because we booked a GV room! It's been HOT, but crowds have been manageable! Definitely not 8 or 9 like UG predicted. I think our longest wait time was 20 min for Dumbo, but we use fp and rider swap for the big rides. The longest wait time I saw was TSM and Pixie Hollow, which were both 60 minutes. Well, we're off to the concierge lounge for lunch! Just thought I'd let you know of our little pixie dusted vacation!

    Can you enter and exit the lounge from the third floor?

    Yes you can. That is what we would do, then take the lounge stairs down to the main level. We never used the elevator in the Hawaii bldg. It was easy and convenient.

    Yeah, we just bumped our trip up to October - and for 10 nights! DH finally got the go-ahead from his boss.

    We're doing a split stay now, 7 nights at Windsor Palms and 3 nights at the Poly. :banana:

    I booked our flights today too! $660 for all 4 of us, return (and direct) flying AirTran and JetBlue.

    Now I might get extra lucky and get FIL to get our park tickets, SeaWorld Tickets, and Alamo gift certificates for us through his airmiles.

    Ohhhhh, so excited now.

    We ate at the Kona Sushi Bar in April and LOVED everything. It was a little pricey, but what else is new. We already have plans to eat there again next year.

    Thank you for your kind offer. Unfortunately we won't be there for a while. It was so generous of you to offer.
