It was thanks to your and Fran's fun time at HDDR that prompted me to go. I'm so glad we did!Great birthday update. Nice to see they had so many options for you. Gluten free corn bread is great since white flour is not that important to a good one. I'm sure they put bacon in the beans or at least ham hocks.
So envious of your cruise with Karin and Tom. I'd love if we could join you but alas, still not able to plan trips. I'll have to suffice with working on yours for September!
Love the update. Starberry what a cute name for a horse. How funny lying on the floor full and content. How it warms my heart to know they are treated so nicely. Baths every day. Wonderful.
The restaurant looks fun. Nothing like a bit of slap stick! Not offensive or crude. The food looks good. I like corn bread we are corn bread shy in the UK. I am thrilled they did gluten free.
Shame Mum did not like her sauce. But salad looks good. As does Mom's dessert! Sorry your cookie was as dry as the ground the horses were rolling in...
Love the photos of you and Mom.
Great news on your Fantasy cruise with Karin and Tom. I am delighted for you. TA 2019 will be great. It's good to have things in the pipeline.
I've heard the fried chicken is excellent. One gluten free review I read said they brought her gluten free chicken tenders. I used to eat chicken and those were one of my favorite things. So yummy!The HDDR is a fantastic place to celebrate a birthday!! And the food is delicious. I loved the fried chicken (I know, neither vegetarian nor gluten free, but really good). We visited FW a few times when we stayed at VWL in December and I really loved exploring there, such a peaceful atmosphere.
Great news on the cruise with Karin! And hopefully the 2019 will have better itineraries for you anyway! We are still undecided and might end up pushing our plans for a TA into 2019 as well. I feel like I need to do some travel that is not Disney in 2018, especially I want to visit the UK before it becomes a huge hassle for us Europeans to go there (if it does, but currently no one knows what the consequences of Brexit are going to be, but we now know that March 29, 2019 is the end date for EU membership of the UK).
They do have riding lessens but you don't have to have one. The area with the smaller horses had hours, I think until 5pm, and you could walk around them. The big horses are in a barn and you can walk in and be right next to them. My hands just itch not being able to pet them and being so close. I highly recommend going over to FW and just enjoying.I LOVE the horse pictures -- my favorite creature next to a dog!!! Do they just let you go there to see them, or do you have to book a riding session?
So I am guessing they don't allow you to pet any of them? That would be a hard one!They do have riding lessens but you don't have to have one.

All too often I read a TR with tons of yummy food and I haven't eaten the whole day. I don't usually eat breakfast and like to jump on here when I'm at work.I'm sitting here looking at all of your yummy food (french fries! salmon! ice cream!) while I eat my... breakfast oatmeal. lol!
It was totally by accidentWas your mom wearing a Stitch shirt to meet Stitch?? It's always fun to pull that off--I've only done it by accident
I love the fact that there are so many movies to see on board! Watching movies and lounging by the pool are basically my two favorite activities. DBF and I are looking at cruises and I sooo want to go on DCL. I can literally picture myself watching BATB while lounging by the pool with a margarita and french fries
I don't even know why they'd make pancakes that taste like that, how could they get through the taste testing?Oh my re the pancake mix up at BBB! Glad the bucket of potatoes were ok.
It was a fun day, the Frozen theme was really cute, and we enjoyed the chocolate game.How fun a Frozen themed day. Nice chocolate hunt game today!
Thank you we were being silly.What lovely photos of you, Mom and the blue alien.
It is a very confusing thing that's for sure!Grumpy on a cruise how can this be?
They were ok this night.Dinner looks good. Glad your table buddies were ok.
It was my fault for not noticing him on the navigator.Fun party. Shame about Olaf.
That was a great movie!Yeah Jungle book! What a strange towel animal! Cool though. Great update Pam.
What a disappointment. They sound horrible.They were fabulous but very small and thin, almost like a crepe. So for this morning I asked for several pancakes, looking forward to the same yummy pancakes. What was delivered was cardboard tasting giant things. And a monstrous portion like I requested…
Oh, I would have loved this.Today was the special Frozen party and they had it Frozen themed all day.
Yeah, Stitch.After the movie we saw Stich was out at the Gazebo so hustled over and jumped in line
How lovely that your mum was wearing her Stitch top.
You would be surprised. We have encountered more than our fair share of grumpy cruisers.How can one be grumpy on a cruise???
What a shame that not more people did attend.The show of the evening was Jamie Michael Stewart, well known for singing The Love Boat. He was fantastic! There weren’t too many people there, it was almost like our own personal concert.
I would have been disappointed, too.I was disappointed that Olaf wasn’t there, but I was told I missed seeing him out and about around the ship.
So far behind on the DIS! I did an IRL update before the weekend, we are closer, but still not done.Are you anywhere close to finishing the moving out? We've got to get you planning again!
I don't remember what you are doing for getting to the cruise line. Didn't you book an airbnb? The Alaskan Cruise is so great!I'm so excited about September. The Alaska cruise I don't know what to expect so at the moment I'm more excited to show mom DL.
Our band event is over Labor Day weekend, we'll be back long before you arrive. I'll look at a calendar and send you an email.I know she's going to love it!!! You have a band event the week after we're there I think? Our dates are September 15-21.
That's a bummer!because the pancakes were so terrible
Then again we rarely make it to the shows....There weren’t too many people there, it was almost like our own personal concert.
And we rarely make the dance parties....At 9:45 we headed up to the Freezing the Night Away Frozen themed party.
And we can never stay up that late!Back to the room at 12:46am and we fell asleep with Lilo and Stich on TV. I did NOT pre-order breakfast again.
No worries, I've been so slow at getting updates posted. Work has been insane the last week, and this week will be dreadful, and next week a friend is coming down from Maryland. Not sure when I'll get another update posted.For some reason I am not getting notifications for some threads including this one so I have only just found this.
It was such a fun day. The HDDR is definitely on the list for a repeat.Multi-quote is also not working properly for me for some reason. Your birthday treat looked amazing. How neat to get meet the horse from the headless horseman.
Thank you! Very excited!Congratulations on getting the next cruise booked.
I don't know how they could have made it through the taste testing phase of production. They were awful.What a disappointment. They sound horrible.
It was really lovely, they had the Frozen theme integrated into everything.Oh, I would have loved this.
He's always fabulous!Yeah, Stitch.
Totally on accident but perfect.How lovely that your mum was wearing her Stitch top.
It just boggles my mind!You would be surprised. We have encountered more than our fair share of grumpy cruisers.
They were missing out that's for sure. Maybe they didn't know who he was, but he was fantastic. Such a beautiful voice, and did lots of great songs.What a shame that not more people did attend.
I have yet to meet Olaf in person, I must correct this one day.I would have been disappointed, too.
That was in october 2015 so about 18 months ago.and it made it even more fun that I had seen him when we were at the party last year. or two years ago?
I got lucky at California Adventure in 2015.I have yet to meet Olaf in person, I must correct this one day.
That's the great thing about the Dis, it's here when you're ready.So far behind on the DIS! I did an IRL update before the weekend, we are closer, but still not done.
Yes, an Airbnb in Vancouver. First we will fly to Seattle, then take the bus up to Vancouver. Originally it was going to be the train but the train times are not helpful. Then two nights in Vancouver, an Alaska cruise, followed by a repositioning cruise, then DL for 6 nights but since I haven't been to Alaska I don't know how amazing it is, I'm just anticipating. But I know how awesome DL is, and VGC, and am so excited to show it to mom and lounge on those fabulous loungers! and eat yummy food, and of course see you and Fran Looks like it will be my only vacation this year, so I'm looking forward to it even moreI don't remember what you are doing for getting to the cruise line. Didn't you book an airbnb? The Alaskan Cruise is so great!
Awesome, sounds good.Our band event is over Labor Day weekend, we'll be back long before you arrive. I'll look at a calendar and send you an email.
They were so disappointing.That's a bummer!
We are pool and sun loungers rotated around movies, shows, and foodYou guys really relax and just take it easy. I'm usually booking us into brunch, drink tastings....
Love the shows!Then again we rarely make it to the shows....
That was a lot of beets and salmon there in your meal.
LOVE the dance parties!!!And we rarely make the dance parties....
And we can never stay up that late!
I hope if we ever cruise together we can find times of day when we're in sync! Although all those French Fries did look delicious!
