I would love to be lucky enough to live so close and be able to go that often.
See I aspire to be you.
Now that we are in Charleston instead of Maryland we are WAY close enough to go a few times a year so woohoo I will be able to put all your reviews to good use and try them all too.
I can't wait to hear about your late summer mini trip and then your next live review!
Thanks again for the top 5 list, I will definitly put it to good use.
Oh dont worry I was not taking any offense at all, it was funny because I think I am obsessed with WDW! I guess I always knew it was there but for someone else to pick up on it ...wow I do have an addiction

Hey Nicki and anyone else who may be interested ...

Last weekend at a local liquor store we found a huge display of that pretty pink stuff you took a picture of in France. Since Jay and I were putting out the cash for a bottle of single malt scotch for the family to suck down with dessert I talked my BIL into buying a bottle of the pink stuff for the "girlie" drinkers in the family.

It was $30 for the bottle which I think is a bit high based on prices I saw online, but it actually tasted pretty good.

It's fizzy, so I think it must be designed to be consumed pretty quickly. And is it ever sweet! We chilled it in the fridge and then poured it over ice. Once the ice diluted it a bit the taste smoothed out and it was fairly enjoyable.

Not something that we'd buy to keep in the house, but if you like sweet drinks this might be something to consider.

And I'd just like to say thank you for allowing me to sample this alcohol on behalf of everyone here.

On behalf of all of us "Thank You" for your dedication to this cause, job well done!

I think I'll pass on it, not into that supersweet stuff.

I am so jealous of you trying the pink fizzy vodka stuff. Now I have to hunt it down and try it.

This gives me hope that they sell it by the glass, otherwise why keep it chilled It's not like you can buy a bottle and drink it right there, if I remember right you have to send all alchol to package pick up. From Brenda's description I think it's going to be too sweet for me but hey you gotta try it once right?

I loved your report! Thank you for going to all the trouble. I don't have reservations for any of those places but I would not cross them off the next trip! And I didn't even know about the frozen Chai until now... made a note to stop by and get one!

Thanks!

About the frozen chai...I loved it and I tried the one at Starbucks...it is NOTHING like the one at AK. The one from Starbucks tastes like a candle or bad cologne....I had them exchange it for a frozen cinnamon dolce frappaccino...this one tastes exactly like the one from AK

Thanks! If you can believe this I just had a call from DH saying that we may have to move the trip back 2 or 3 weeks....Tropical Storm Fay wreaked havoc with us and caused his company a lot of issues so if cannot get them squared away by tomorrow afternoon he has to stay and work

Good news is I called WDW and they are fantastic, I can move my reservation without any financial penalty....and there is availability at the Poly which is a total shock and but the kicker will be making ADRs this late in the game and during free dining OUCH!

Keep your fingers crossed for me that we can still go tomorrow!
