    Hey Scratch!
    Glad to hear you're back and had a great time! I was interested in seeing that you enjoyed Happy Limo! There were a number of complaints about them during the hurricanes on the boards so I was glad that you didn't have any problems.

    Can't wait for your trip report!

    Welcome back Janet! How was Richard Petty's? DBF wanted to try it back in Sept/Oct but we couldn't find the time to fit it in our schedule. What was the GF like? I'm guessing you weren't impressed...

    Welcome Home! See we saved the nice weather for you!

    Glad you have some great experiences! Know what you mean about Tony's we loved breakfast there, but dinner/lunch is not in the same league!

    Ps. Booked the Dec 06 Double Dip, sounds like fun and 4 months after your panama, so just about time for your next trip, lol.

    I was also worried about Happy Limo but then thought it's booked we'll wait and see! Put it this way, No More Disney Transfers for us! They went above and beyond for us! More explaination to come during Trip Report

    Richard Petty ~ Do find the time! Yes, it is an all afternoon experience but well worth the Adreneline Rush! Also, make sure you practice your Shifting!LOL More to come!

    Ok, GF, looks nice on the outside but........Let's just say for a Deluxe not impressed with how thin the walls are or !LOL

    Welcome back Janet! What's up with Tony's? We made ps ressies for this Friday night since that should be our carb-loading night for Sunday's race. I'm really hoping that for $18.50 I get lots of spaghetti with my meal ... I don't care about the meatballs ... just lots and lots of pasta. Are we going to be disappointed? There are 9 of us going.

    Thanks!

    Mary-Liz

    Oh you will get lots and lots and lots of pasta! But unfortunately, I don't like their sauce! I for one do not think opening up a jar of pasta sauce without adding a few extra seasonings makes for an acceptable sauce. No Basil, No Garlic, No Onion = NO TASTE! Also, they did not do a very good job of draining the pasta, still watery tasting! Even Tanya traded for my Baked Ziti but was lucky for me cause that meat sauce reminded me of Dog Food (colour and texture)!LOL Sorry but this used to be one of our Fav Places to eat and also the fact that the dipping sauce is no longer available during lunch hours...........

    Let's just say Tony's is no longer a Magical Place to eat anymore!

    Save your Money and go to local Grocery Store and Buy your Pasta and make it yourself! Spend what you save on Mickey Bars and Dole Whips!

    I even told them to fire their new Chef!

    This is where you get to, in my case, drive a NASCAR! They also have the ride along program! It's for persons 16 and older!

    When you are entering MK, you will notice a race car track on the left hand side. This is where you do these things. It's mostly guys that do the driving but..... :moped: :moped: :earboy2:

    Plus you will need that long to save up for it!LOL I was lucky to get a great deal thanks to the DISboards!

    What I did usually runs $350.00 US! I got it for $199.00! But well worth the price of admission!
