And yes, dogs! There was this senior couple pushing one in a pink mini carriage type stroller with it zipped in that nylon. Pour thing was panting so hard. I'm still kicking myself from not stopping them and getting it out so it could breath.

Too bad I missed you. Could have joined you at TOWL for a drink!
Oh rats, sorry to have missed you.

I bet we saw each other at the pool. Haha.

I always have a good trip, and don't let this little stuff bother me. I do wonder sometimes how a newbie would cope, if they didn't know all the work arounds....

I'm glad these boards are here, to help others.

So we can help from each other.

Thank you for the classic.laundryview.com/disneyworld link. I'll keep that in mind for the future.

And I agree - Too much food. I wish I had someone to split the ddp with... maybe I'll post next time, and see if anyone wants to share.

Thank you for the trip report. Thoroughly enjoyed reading.

DOGS: I was VERY upset seeing a dog recently at HS desperately trying not to put his foot on the hot pavement. The guy looked creepy and I decided not to make a scene, which I very much wanted to do. I do not understand how a dog owner could allow that.

SSR: Never stayed as we're addicted to other resorts but I did try to walk around SSR from a DS trip. I kept stopping people asking where the Lobby was and it seemed like no one knew. I got tired of wandering and turned around and walked back to DS. I don't think I would do well at SSR as we don't take a car.

I'm very glad you had a nice getaway. It's always a pleasure being there even with some annoyances.

PS: You live in a very nice suburb. We love J.Alexanders.

Wink Solo trips

I like my solo trios 2-3 nights long.

It used to feel funny but with my phone im still in touch with my family and friends. And i usually meet someone and that is interesting. This trip i met a published author, and an engineer who was Working on tron.

And by being solo i grt to Do what i want. So if i look at cooking stuff for an hour, then so be it. no kids Saying mom. Bored.

And get to i get to Watch chick flicks.

It really is a nice little break. Goldi
