Hmmm maybe that's Kendall's style. "low energy" I think though for her it's more of an innate shyness, she's just not demonstrative in general, happy or sad.

It always seems like I am interested in 1-2 out of the 3 but not all 3. I'd only heard good things about The Wave but wasn't sure what the family would think. They definitely liked it although for the kids I do think the (lack of) ambiance played a factor and as a result not on a top list for them to go back to, only as there are other places they like better. Out of the restaurants from this trip that were new (all of them lol) Olivia's won hands down. Go figure.

I can't believe you haven't seen Wishes from MK!! Crazy! You must rectify that (although it's yucky for the crowds!).
Oh I have, just not recently with the kids. I have many times over the years and we did in 2004 with the E's (but they don't remember). In 2009 we had horrid timing with dinners and changing fireworks times and missed almost all of them as a result. 2010 we saw it from the GF, again, timing. 2012...didn't go into MK so TOWL was our only option other than the Poly Beach. I think we wrecked them a little with the Illuminations cruise and that's why they love it so much. Spoiled rotten monsters!

I think you all had a pretty great day - busy exhausting and mostly fun!
They've had the tour for several years I think so I bet they still will in 4 more. It was a pretty great day!

Mara is so good. Love that place.
Yeah for the Savannah view.
Glad they swam.
Never could be tired of seeing giraffes.
The Wave is a good restaurant. Only had 1 bad thing there and it wasn’t really bad just described wrong.
December I am going to have to remember to go to TOTWL. I always forget.
All caught up again.
It was too long to get off the ship and do the shuttle. Big drag. Check the blackout dates in Dec, there are some but it's not awful. We are there 12/29 to 1/7 and we will be able to do it at the end of the trip with everyone and definitely plan to.

Never too many Giraffes!

The steak was fabulous. Kendall was pretty excited about her gift, it was cute.

I cannot remember who or how she got that term "low energy" but for her at times it fits. With Jennifer, she can be very detached and well flat, emotion wise. She has and kind of still does need lots of sleep.
Since she has becone a night shift person she is a bit better. Her birthday trip with me to Disney had lots of down time.... She would get tired easily and getting up for the tour ( 8am ) and 3 hours about wore her out.

He did great and we were lucky - the CM running the tours ( LaMonte) was also at the free demo so a bond was formed early. He really helped Chris out to chill out and enjoy and not stress over having to lern how to ride the Segway.

Only got in an Olivia's breakfast but I need to make time to do it right. It was post half-marathon and well other than it being food I don't remember too much.

Great update! The Wave is on my shot list of ones I want to try sometime. Love the pics from the Top of the World, I love Wishes, your pics weren't too bad, I kind of like those squiggly fireworks pics, they look cool.

Do they pipe in the music for Wishes up there?

Ambivalent is the emotion that K seems to channel. With the sleep she can go go go but when she crashes, it's HARD.

Free Demo is a great idea, I believe all the Segway tours are cancelled. I would love to do a 16th trip with each but I'm not sure that's going to work out. We will see.

Dinner was outstanding, I would like to try it for breakfast as well at some point.

They do pipe in the music, I loved that. They also piped it in over at the GF and it really does add a lot. I liked the squiggly ones as well, I did skip posting the truly blurry as all get out ones but the squiggly made me smile.

Looks like another wonderful meal! Your description of Kona is exactly how I felt about it. I could see myself trying The Wave with just adults for the yummy food.

What an awesome gift for Kendall. Can't wait to hear how she enjoyed it.

I keep debating about whether to have Kona on our maybe list for exactly that reason but it is darn good food!

I am glad we went to the wave, it was the perfect trip for it.

Sounds like you had a great night! The Wave is awesome, I really enjoyed it there. It is hard to photograph though! Great shots of the fireworks - I'd love to stay at CR and see them from my balcony! The doors at AKL really are heavy, aren't they?

I imagine with a tripod and a better camera and distance lens, it might be possible to get some good shots. Skills far superior to mine needed for sure.

They were heavy. And LOUD.

It was a great night though and the bed was nice and comfy so even loud doors didn't matter all that much.

AKL is by far my favorite resort that I've stayed at. On my first "Mom/Daughter" trip with my DM we got a Savannah view room. Looooved waking up to the animals and just chilling on the verandah watching the animals.

Great gift for Kendall...

The Wave is a bit of a puzzle to me...

I do like the lounge...

We ate there once before a Pirates cruise that left from the Contemporary Docks...

I thought the food was really solid... very good... & the concepts of the menu were strong... (although I think with some tweaks it could be great) but the atmosphere is a little eh... it doesn't have a strong sense of place or identity...I think they were starting something in the lounge that they didn't quite carry through...

Nice place to watch the fireworks...

My friend has wine glasses like those, minus The Wave logo.

Food look delicious. The Wave wasn't on my radar....until now. I love that Jeff stole, err I mean ate all that cheesecake. Must have been a heck of a workout later that week.
