    Great update! I felt the same way about Spirit of Aloha, we had a lot of fun but no need to really do it again - even more so after visiting Aulani LOL. I do however love Hoop Dee Do, but that's something we only do every 5-7 years or so as it hasn't changed. Glad that you got to experience it and make an opinion for yourself tho.

    Thanks for the idea of incorporating a college visit into a Disney trip. My son wants to be an Astrophysicist and FIT is on his list to check into.

    Day 5...Feb 5th...Super Bowl Sunday...

    I planned obsessively for this day, mostly to make it something my husband would enjoy. He's a HUGE sports fan, with football being at the top of the list. I knew he would want to enjoy the game somewhere, but every place we looked into was either crazy expensive, or out of the way. We called the ESPN club a few times before arriving and even with the package they were offering it was still first come first serve. For $100 Kevin wanted to be guaranteed a table. Di we do anything fun? NOPE! So that was that.

    We started our day at AK. We walked to our first FP of the day which was Primeval Whirl. I know not many people are crazy about this ride, but my family loves it! We laugh the whole time and look forward to riding every year! From there we were all hungry and went to our traditional Y&Y. We always eat there on our AK day. I got the same thing I've eaten there for years, the roasted veggie and couscous wrap. That was last time ordering it. It was soooo dry I felt like I was eating sand! The wrap was stale around the edges too, but I ate it cuz I'm fat. Brook and Kevin got the honey chicken which they liked, and Mia had a kids hamburger(she hates melted chz). After lunch it was time for Everest! We debated doing single rider afterwards, but the kids wanted to shop. Brook did some pin trading. With the help of Mia's eagle eyes, Brook was able to complete a set she had started only a few days before. Kali was closed(thank the Lord) so we decided to head back to FQ. Mia hopped in the shower to get ready for Lilo's Playhouse, Kevin and I laid down for a lil nappie, and Brook watched some TV. I fell asleep to the show Bunk'd on the Disney channel. It was really cute, we both liked it. Kevin and Mia grabbed an uber to Lilo's and Brook and I headed down to the food court for a snack. I told her it looked like Pablo Escobar had been here before us lol....

    Those darn beignets are messy! I decided on a king cake, which Brook instantly fell in love with. So much so I had to buy one at home!

    After our snack we headed back to the room because the game was about to start. I'm a Pats fan so it ended well! Kevin wasn't so happy, but who cares?! While he went to get Mia, Brook and I organized her pin collection, well she made me. She asked, I said no, she made a sad face, so I organized pins lol.

    Good! I'm glad there are a few of us who appreciate it :D

    Like I said in my post, I've been eating it for years but this time it was so off putting-never again!

    Put me in the camp of Primeval Whirl fans!

    @Courtney6682 , I love the beignets at POFQ! Also, we do a King Cake every year for Fat Tuesday. I made one once, now I just buy it. I always make sure to cut T the piece that has the baby in it. He gets overly excited about something so simple...and I fake my surprise over him getting it again. ;).

    Oh, and watching the game in your room sounds fun!!! It was probably a lot more relaxing than being at a bar.

    Atta girl! I knew I liked you for some reason;)

    I'm not actually a fan of the beignets..Tried them once last year and didn't get the hype. Brook, like the animal that she is, ripped the cake apart that I bought for our house LOL. I didn't care tho, we were done with it. I had to fake my joy for a 17 yr old finding the baby HAHAHAHA.

    We actually did have fun watching it in the room...all that obsessive nonsense...so not worth it lol

    Ha ha!!! We have a bakery that sells one with the baby separately, so you can place it yourself. I would end up with a completely destroyed cake within 5 minutes of cutting if I didn't do it this way.lol

    I'm telling you, a pool or a room are the best places for games!!! I think it sounds much better than the ESPN Club!

    Renting a relatively reasonably priced Cabana is torch worthy.. eating at a $300 dinner, not torch worthy.. but only one of them will I do at WDW.. and guess what? If "you" choose the other- good for you! Amazing how that works..something as simple as realizing that people may prefer different things in life.lol

    Totally agree! I couldn't care less what a stranger chooses to do on THEIR vacation! Some people apparently do ;)

    Day 6...February 6th

    MK today! I was so excited to the Super Bowl parade, and everyone I work with was so jeal! Little did I know that the ''parade'' would consist of ONE player LOL. It was neat to see all the lights and cameras set up for interviews, and the characters wearing football jerseys and cheerleader outfits! I regret not taking any pics. I'm not a picture person, what can I say? We had FP's for Buzz, Space and 7D, but we did Buzz twice with the extra FP's Brook was given on her bday.

    I live in Louisiana and they are still selling King Cakes here. They now decorate them in pastels for Easter, hah! I had enough during carnival season that I can't stomach them past Mardi Gras.

    Enjoying your report!
