    On behalf of the kids, thank you. They are wishing about going back. Every once in a while, spontaneously, one or the other will say they miss Disney and wish they were back. Makes me happy to hear they had a good time and want to go back. But at the same time sad, knowing the reality of the matter. But there is always hope.

    For Gabe1 ~
    This should be funny....if it wasn't potentially true. :oops:

    The teen female-to-male ratio was off the charts this weekend....not unlike the ratio on a senior singles cruise. :cautious: :joyfull:

    Yeah, it's hard for her to switch out of "teacher mode."

    The upcharge was certainly in the food & beverage kiosk offerings....of which we did not partake.

    First - enjoyed your trip report! I don't think I'm coordinated enough do a trip report while I was there...like patting my head and rubbing my tummy.

    Second - we were there the week before you and I was thinking the same thoughts about the restrooms. I chalked it up to being too critical or not noticing before, but now that you point it out, maybe I'm not crazy. It seems like in the past there was constantly someone tending to the restroom but now they were non-existent. I also saw overflowing trash cans a couple of times near counter service locations (which I also never remember seeing before) So sad because park cleanliness was always something that Disney has excelled at.

    It's about time for you to go back home for another trip Tuvalu. I am already in withdrawals. The other night I went through your last 2 reports with my granddaughter to show her the pictures. I quizzed her on the locations. She did pretty good. She is 9 and I have taken her 4 times. She is now my go to D partner when time permits with school. Your reports are good training for us for our next trip and are fun to follow. Not to take away from the other reports, especially Doc Disney's, but the frequency of yours makes it a magical routine.

    Hi Tuvalu
    Just curious with all those great trips do you get recognized at WDW by CMs (at the parks or the resorts)
    I picture you walking up to the gate at MK and having a bunch of CM shout "Tuvalu!!!" like they used to for shout out for this guy

    Thanks for reading :). Live reports are a mixed bag....fun to do but also a lot of "in the moment" work...and you have to travel with someone who doesn't mind that you are constantly distracted, LOL! (Works great if you travel solo, however!)

    Agree that it is so disappointing that park cleanliness has taken a downward turn. But it's not only less staff, it's also more people who do not clean up after themselves....which I will never understand.
