    I would have to think that I'm an old soul too then, because I can basically eat whenever. Earlier the better. ;)

    That's great that they could let you in early at Cape May. I love it when that happens. :goodvibes

    I could have sworn I already responded to this, but I don't see it. Glad they could seat you early. The food looks delicious!

    In case my other ghost post shows up, I just repeated myself. :upsidedow

    We have Cape May planned for our upcoming trip. I'm most worried about that one. Mostly because of my allergies to shellfish. DH wants to try it, but I'm nervous. I'm glad to see that they have lots of things for me to eat there despite my allergy.

    I think my guys can eat anytime of the day. Morning. Noon or night. LOL!!

    I love your pictures. Especially of the dessert. Very, very yummy.

    I love Cape May, we have reservations there in Sept. We tend to eat early dinners at WDW for some reason. We usually eat a late breakfast and skip lunch, so we're ready for an early evening meal. Last time we went we had reservations at Coral Reef - but our timing was off. We ate our late breakfast too late (more like lunch ;)) and weren't at all hungry for Coral Reef at 5:00! We tried to move it to later and that wasn't happening! We ended up going to Boatwrights later on and it turned out to be really good!

    I did hate canceling those Coral Reef reservations though :sad1:

    Oh man. Judy's out of town, so all I had for dinner was chips and salsa (leftover from guess when) and some lunchmeat....and now I come across your Cape May buffet pictures. Aauuugh! Mmmmm!

    My sister ate there last year and had great things to say about it.

    DO NOT EVER TELL STEVE THAT THEY HAVE ALL YOU CAN EAT SNOW CRAB LEGS!!!!!!! :scared: We will have to go there, he will eat until he can't eat anymore :sick: and they will escort us out of the resort because all you can eat really doesn't mean eating all they have and then we won't be able to return to WDW. So, just don't mention it when you see him again :thumbsup2

    So glad that you could get in early. There is nothing worst than being really exhausted and having to sit through dinner.

    Chloe's bday is this weekend. Can't believe she is already 5 :confused3

    Have a great weekend - it is going to be beautiful :thumbsup2

    Love the wave detail in the bathroom! One of these trips we need to slow down ever more and really take everything in! We love the Cape May dinner buffet - all three of us! My DH tries his best to eat enough crab legs for all of us - you know to get our "money's worth" or so he claims.

    I don't mind eating early. I want to avoid the crowds as much as possible and eating early guarantees that they are not running behind.

    I can always have a little snack later on. :thumbsup2

    You inspired me to make sure I had pictures of the whole buffet. :cool1:

    Thansk - I guess my appetite was off- I know I ate and did well and I am sure Chris was munching away on the crab legs so I had plenty of opportunity to snap away.

    Are you one who cannot smell it or do you have to actually eat it to have a reaction?
    I will assume eat since the aroma is everywhere. The only thing I would suggest is to have them seat you away from the buffet just in case the smell makes its way over and bothers you a bit.

    Plenty of non seafood things to eat. :thumbsup2

    Chris is always hungry usually likes his big meal early. Then he makes or has something small later in the evening. :lmao:

    Canceling Coal Reef is sad. :sad2: I hate when meals domino like that.
    Cape May was good.

    I tried to put a warning. :rolleyes: I hope you enjoyed your chips and salsa. But I hope you did not have them again tonight. ;)

    It was a good meal.

    :woohoo: For Great minds. Crab legs are good. :thumbsup2

    :ssst: The secret is safe. If Chris and Steve both went they would use the weeks worth of crab legs. I don't think Chris ate anything else BUT crab legs. :lmao:

    We needed a little good luck. And we got it.


    HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHLOE!!!! :cool1:
    I do not have to waork and I plan to have a reat weekend.


    WOW if get all our Crab leg eaters together we could eat them out of crab legs.:lmao:

    I get my "moneys worth" in desserts. :rotfl2:

    It is supposed to be beautiful dry and sunny here. I plan to enjoy it. :beach:

    I am not a buffet person but oh those mussels and that Portuguese stew look GOOD!

    I can't eat that early though....unless I skipped lunch!

    Have you ever considered putting the allergy on your dining reservations so they can help steer you?

    Finally caught back up. Lots of great updated.

    Congrats to Chris on graduation. What are his future plans?

    Great Holiday pictures. We passed through Boardwalk in 2005 on Dec 30th and it didn't have near as much decorations as this past year.

    We ate at Cape May in 2010 and really liked it. Put me on the list that can eat snow crabs till I'm ready to bust.

    What I had was good. I can bust out some crab legs too.
    It usually works well for me at Disney, right before spending the eveing inthe parks.
    Everyone else eats and I get to play. :thumbsup2

    I never have room to list everything and the few times I tried to list some important ones I was denied something that was pretty insignificant.
    Only time it probably saved me was WWC and the Soy in the Milk shake.

    I heard they were going to ipads with ingredient lists. That will help me. I can't avoid everything so I just look for those with very litte, ie further down the ingredient list, and avoid too many at once and upping the allergy meds in advance.


    Chris will attend our local Comminty College for a year and due to a program at the State University in the area, he can then transfer directly without losing any credits to a 4 year program. Seemed like the best choice for him.

    We could have a dangerous group for Crab legs if we all showed up at once. :lmao:

    I found all twelve but getting them while they are moving proved tough. Also counting them while they were moving was tough too. I was getting a bit frustrated but finally found them all and was ready to move on.

    Here are the ones that came out somewhat clear.

    Once Out on the Boardwalk, it was getting dark. I wanted to make sure the boy got to see the Osborne Lights.

    More signage for the marathon. We walked over to DHS.

    What would Chris think of the lights?

    Would his reaction lead to the snit of all snits from his mother? ::yes::

    Then what happens?
