    I second the Portabello soup at Artist Point :hungry:... the scallops were also delicious... as was the bread and salted butter... oh and the Cigar City Jai Alai was also quite tasty... now that i think about it everything was delicious there! One of the best meals we've had at Disney (sorry Sanaa... :oops:)

    I'm excited to try it. Like I said before, the only meal I'm a bit iffy about is Skipper's Canteen.

    Mini-update:

    Looks like TIW is offering an additional discount for certain restaurants during the time we will be visiting. 30% off before 6:30 and after 8:30pm. I checked our reservations and which restaurants would be affected. Jiko and Artists Point are on the list. We can't pass up a 30% discount on food and alcohol. That will save us quite a penny on a bottle of wine at Jiko.

    I made sure to change our reservations to the earliest I could find for both, which ended up be 5:30ish.

    I like CC's Maduro brown ale but somehow never had the Jai Alai despite it being easily available locally at Kroger. I might have to pick up a sixer this weeked to try it out.

    Magic bands should follow soon!

    I placed an order with my beer guy for some Golden Monkey in a can as well as another local brew in a can to enjoy pool side. Enough to share...

    32 days to go!

    So yesterday I got two pieces of mail. One piece looked like this:
    image2.JPG

    :eek::eek::eek: The date to report was TWO DAYS AFTER WE ARRIVE!!! Thankfully we are allowed a one time deferment so a quick call this morning to the county clerk had me off the hook til December!

    The second piece looked like this:
    image1.JPG

    This was more inviting, obviously:D. This, of course, meant more fodder for the Christmas garland!

    In other news, we decided to drive down and spend the night at a hotel near the airport. The DW found a great deal for a hotel just a mile from the airport with free shuttle service and cheap parking for the week. This means we can sleep in a bit more and be to the airport in no time. The Golden Monkey in cans and Omaha Hannahatchee Creek in cans should be in soon.

    Less than 25 days to go!!

    We keep saying this is garland, but every time I bring up a 2nd tree with a Disney theme, this is the answer:

    I was on jury duty a little over a year ago. I live in a really small town so I never even had to go to the courthouse. I think there might be like one jury trial a year here (and probably none a lot of years).
