Since they did a cover of I'm a Believer I'll give them a chance!!
YAY - I did know who they were, I think the lyric is "Hey now, you're an all star, something something." And the I'm a "Believer" was the theme song in one of the Shrek movies.

David and I are headed to Vegas on Thursday, anyone got any food ideas?
Have a great trip and here's one to avoid - StripSteak in the Mandalay Bay. It was on a lot of the "must" lists and DH and I went there for our anniversary dinner. It was way overpriced and not really great food...kind of like most Disney restaurants - did I say that out loud? Maybe it's because we're from Chicago and have really good, but pricey, restaurants and thought it would at least match up...it didn't.

OK, DW and I will bite. We'll be at BLT 10/8 - 10/17 for our 30th Anniversary Celebration Trip. We'd love to meet up with some fellow DIS'ers as WDW can get so lonely sometimes!

I am assuming post #2 is still the official updated GTG time/locations. With 22 pages of comments, it's a bit overwelming trying to sort everything out.

Aside from a few must have ADR's, we are leaving our schedule open to just enjoy the spontinaty of a a long trip.

Looking forward to the subscription updates.

I'm glad you found us! Yes, post #2 will have the official meets. We do lots of talking (and often stray off topic!) so no need to read the other pages!

Not much in post 2 yet as we're waiting to see what paid events and deminars WDW releases -- hopefully by July.

Are you considering doing the Swan/Dolphin Food & Wine Classic (10/12-13)? It's a great way to try lots of menu items at the Swolphin restaurants. If the weather cooperates, all the booths are out on the Causeway. If it rains, they move it inside the Swan.

Normally we do Food & Wine Festival from the first day (in late September) through the 1st week in October. Breaking tradition this year specifically because of the Swolphin dates!

Congrats on 30 years! "JD" (aka Dwight!) and I are also celebrating 30 yrs this trip! Looking forward to meeting you and your wife.

Please check back here from time to time - especially if you haven't gotten any update notifications. The boards have been inconsistent with those lately.

Hi Gals, Looks like most of us have been working hard to get things in order for the DIS meet.

I am not sure what is happening with us at this moment. I mentioned on the AKL thread that there was a surprise planned for later in October. I don't know what, where or who is involved. But....I have an idea it may be the whole family getting together to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. I don't know when I will find out?? But I am really hope it will be held at WDW.

I have our trip starting on September 24th at BC CL then we transfer over to AKL CL for a few days, then Shades of Green to save money whole we wait for you all to arrive for the meet. I have a room and the package booked for us at the Swan for Thursday through Saturday.

Now I need to book air fare tomorrow....but DH said to hold off "He would take care of the tickets". He has never in almost 30 years handled anything regarding our travel. So now I am curious!

I am so looking forward to meeing you all in person. I really want a group of us to go to the Ditch for a drink while we are there. I have never been there, had to have Brandi explain to me where it was. I had never even heard of it. Must be in a dark spot over there. I probably walked by numerous times.

Good night all it is 2:25 AM here and I lost track of my DIS time. Must sleep. Hope everyone has a good WEDNESDAY! (I got the day right this time).

Ann

Ann, I wish I was going to meet with everyone, too. I would walk you right over there and introduce you to the Ditch, a.k.a. La Cava.....

You guys will have to have a drink for me and David.

I cannot wait. It will have been a year since we were in WDW. For someone who has had an AP for many, many years and has put said pass to good use, this time span seems like an eternity. I keep hoping Brandi will find a way to scoot down for a quick pop-in weekend trip so we can all get together again. If it doesn't happen the rest of us will just have to find many ways to toast her! I am thinking The Ditch, the Italian wine bar, the Rose & Crown Pub, all the kiosks...

1. A friend of mine from Germany has an expression she uses whenever she can't get somewhere on her U.S. trips. She would say "Well WDW and The Ditch are not going anywhere. I will be back and see it then. There will be another time we can all get together.

2. I hang out over on the Beach Club thread. They had a meet sometime back and they had "flat place name here" attending. It was so cute and they looked like they had fun doing it! Brandi, take a great picture of yourself dressed for a Disney day where we would meet up at The Ditch. Blow it up large like two feet tall. Mail it to one of us. When we take pictures you will be there! We can even buy you a drink....umm we will probably be more than happy to drink it for you too!

What does everyone think? I would be happy to buy a round and put "flat Brandi" in a perfect place for a picture.

The other night I was cruising on some thread and saw a dining TR from a couple from London. I was going to post a link over here as they did the Swan & Dolphin Food & Wine last year. It was great to see the pictures of the food & drink offerings and their opinions. However, I got called away from my computer and lost the thread. Naturally I had not posted or subscribed to it It was a completed report and I have not been able to find it. If anyone knows the one I am talking about I would love a link. I didn't get past the first couple of items they sampled.

I will continue to try and find it.

Happy Wednesday to everyone!

Ann
