WDW News T reported a rumor that its going to get changed to Victoria & Albert's Bistro. So a change of decor and possibly menu. Apparently Chapek (the head of Disney parks and resorts) doesn't llike the feel of the Grand Floridian, so wants to change it up...
This really makes me sad!

    Real Life Update:

    Wow! We had a busy day. We welcomed a new member of the family and are very much in love. We had a lot to do to get prepared and to make our newest family member feel safe and at home. We wanted all of you to be able to share in our joy, so I have attached our second YouTube video below. ENJOY!!!!

    Yay for kittens! We only have one cat but my wife has been talking about getting another. We are definitely cat people so it’s tempting. I’m just not sure I want the added costs.
    But they’re so cute...

    I really love POFQ. It is my favorite mod and I just love how small it is and how everything is a short walk from whichever building you get placed in.
    I’ve stayed at CBR and PORS. I liked them but found the size a bit much. I would really like to try POFQ.

    Just watched your vlog. You two make a great couple :goodvibes
    Feel like I know you properly now that you told me all your plans over breakfast ( at least one of us was eating:rotfl:).
    Every Sunday morning my youngest son (aged 12) picks whether it’s a pancake day or a waffle day and we cook them together. Today was a chocolate chip waffle day cos he has a cheeky grin that his mum can’t resist lol It’s our way of reliving a wee bit of our Disney holidays so watching you guys and listening to your accents added to our experience and made it even better :) :thumbsup2Thanks

    Welcome Raven and Maleficent. Were they already named?
    Raven was already named, but we renamed Maleficent. She was originally named Elvira...

    Yay POFQ and a 2k savings.
    I know, right!!!

    I'll tell you what, buy them in a pair if you ever do. Find a pair that's bonded. We adopted Jack, our Bengal mix 2 years ago, and he's a tyrant (at times). The girls are so much easier because they have each other and keep each other entertained and they are never lonely...

    I would really like to try POFQ.
    I love this resort because it is so small. It doesn't matter which building you are placed in because it's never a long walk to anything...

    I think you'll enjoy La Hacienda! That restaurant was a surprise hit for us in 2013 and we enjoyed it again in 2015. The food was REALLY good and I enjoyed the view out the windows.

    @ariane37 That's sad about Citricos! I finally made it there in 2016 and really enjoyed my meal and experience! At least it's not a must-do restaurant for me, but I'm sad that I may not get a chance to eat there again.

    I know, right!!!! He's so excited, and from what I understand, he can't take pics...

    Awesome news for Timmy. And he got the first day to boot! Pretty cool
    He is beyond excited! He has always been a huge fan. When he was 3, and we were in church for Christmas Eve mass, the priest started his sermon with " A long time ago..." and Tim shouted, "In a galaxy far, far away." The entire church started laughing, even the priest. So, this was totally meant to be... :rotfl2: :rotfl2: :rotfl2:

    It's VERY sad and I'm especially sad for our most awesome favorite server Rony. Hoping to see him in Sept. so we can find out where he'll be in the interim, if he'll work there when it reopens, get his thoughts, etc. 😟 I mean I know it won't necessarily be bad when it reopens but it won't be the same.

    He is so excited! I cannot wait to hear all about it! He asked me if I wanted to go with him because he can bring a guest and it’s during our August trip. But I said no and to go ahead and try to get in as soon as he’s able and fortunately got the very first day.
