Oh, how I love your pictures of CBR! So pretty and so tropical -- it's just made for drinking pina colavas there!

Can't wait to see this hoodie that was begging to be purchased!

I got misty-eyed over the toast! What a wonderful way to officially start the vacation.

I am seriously lusting after that drink this morning. I really, really need one.

I thought I would cry when I did the toast, but I managed to hold it together.

What a nice toast! I'm sure that your grandparents are/were smiling that you both continue to enjoy the World with new friends and your own families!

Pina Colava... yum. And those rum floaters on the top can be dangerous! Not that I mind...

I can't wait to hear how the hoodie question turns out!!

Preferrably containing rum.

I really loved a lot of the merchandise in the store. Honestly, between the pirate stuff and the variety of girly bags they had going on, I was just thrilled. Quite frankly, I've never seen so many bags that I acutally liked at Disney. Totes, purses, wallets. My, my!
Isn't it fun in there? One of my favorite gift shops!

To her grandmother, and my grandfather. Who I know would both be very proud of us. And who, I entertained the notion, may have even been sharing a few laughs as well, just like we were.

I'd like to think so.

No joke, every time we talk about one on here, it makes me craze it so badly. I want a Pina Colava, dang it! I'll have to see if the Friendies know how to make one.

It's such a great place to lose yourself. It was nice to shop without having to worry about who was waiting for me.

You know, I've been wondering that myself, because it's definitely on my list for September. I'll have to check out some online menus and see if I can find it.

It's a beautiful resort. I felt very blessed to stay there.

All of the pool bars have the same menu -- they are available at all the resorts. I had one at POFQ last summer, and I saw them on the menu at AKL.

Oh, thanks for sharing, CP! I thought I might have read somewhere about standardized pool bar menus, but I wasn't sure.

Oh, I can't wait to have another Pina Colava! YUMMY!

How completely Providential that the last update you did involved Grandparents that were very dear to us, and in fact, had a LOT to do with our love of all things Disney. As you know, I have not been on the boards for a few weeks because my beloved Gramma passed away 3 weeks ago, resulting in an unexpected trip to the States.

It was hard and painful, but I have so many amazing memories of her- incredibly many of which involve going to Disneyland. I wish I could have been there with you toasting Gramma along with you. Perhaps maroo and I can add a toast to her when we arrive next year. I think that'd be a poignant thing to do.

Incidentally, while we were going through some of her things, I came across an AMAZING Disney relic of hers! I found a letter dated August, 1943 calling her in for an interview!!!! Can you believe it??!!! I've taken pix. and will do a post over on our PTR in a few days. It's on ancient Disney letterhead and everything! My love of Disney truly has bloodroots!!

Anyway, I'm playing TR catch up this week, and I fear it will take far more than that. Yikes! When I subbed to your reports, I truly wanted to be regular; I sure hope life will normalize now, and I can "visit" with you more often.

Liesa
