Well that was certainly nice of the manager to do that when they have a strict policy. I bet it was the full story that really entertained them.

That was an awesome conclusion!! So well written. I was nervous when you all started feeling sick that the good vibes might be gone. So glad it worked out for the best. Thanks for sharing your story!!

We had a FP for Everest so we headed over to ride.

By now, it was 2:00 and I was ready to leave AK and hop over to MK. The girls and Ross wanted to ride FOP so I conceded.

Hope has an issue with the preshow. If she doesn’t get a clear view of the avatar screen, she gets so upset – like a worried upset. I don’t know if she thinks that she wouldn’t be able to ride if she can’t hook up with an avatar? So in the first room, she did okay – she had a clear view. But when we walked into the second area, we were in the back row and there was a woman standing in front of her. She started to go a little crazy. I explained it didn’t matter where she stood ad I suggested that she take a couple of steps over where she would be able to see better, but she didn’t want to step off the number. The woman in front of us realized what happening and offered for Hope to stand on her number. Usually, I would just tell Hope to deal, but I didn’t want her to be distracting to the others, so I was very grateful to the woman.

As we exited the ride, Julia once again contemplated adopting that banshee, but again decided against it.
Oh, that's so nice of the woman for offering to switch! Having never been there, I have a question because this just made me realize we may have an issue. I understand that you are matched up with a banshee to ride...does it just give you a number and you go to the ride vehicle with that number? Or are you seated in the same vicinity as your family? DS will freak out if he's not next to one of us.

Every time we have ridden FOP we have been given consecutive numbers and have always been seated in the order of our numbers. At least for us that is how it has always been. The cast member tells you what number to stand on and then after the preshow you are let in and seated in that order.

Now in all honesty, I can't recall if I consciously sent out 'specific good vibes' to your hubby, but I did go to the zoo here in Milwaukee and went on my own safari of sorts and then celebrated with some sweet treats with my cast of BILLY ELLIOT at rehearsal that night, so we were kind of 'in sync' throughout the day! I'd like to think I'm always sending positive energy out in to the World, so I will accept a teeny tiny little part of the 'blame' for Ross' positive return experience.

In the company I work work for we're always encouraged to treat our customers with kindness and listen to their reasons for returns or exchanges on an individual basis and then act accordingly. We've even rewarded customers who have brought in stacks of old, expired coupons with SOMETHING for their trouble since they actually held on to those coupons and made their way in to the store to redeem them. I wonder if that was the Manager's way of approaching the Crocs return as well? In any event, I'm glad it worked out well for everyone involved.

It was a Happy September 17th all around!! Yipppeeeeee!! :geek:

I was so ready to leave, but we were all a little hungry. Since we were in Pandora, Ross suggested that we go into Satu’li Canteen for a quick bite. I was hesitant. I wanted everyone hungry for Ohanna but I also didn’t want anyone getting that hangry feeling, so I just asked if we could split something. Everyone agreed. I suggested to Ross that I mobile order, but he was dead set against it. I have no idea why – says he rather get in line and talk to a human. The line was a bit immense and since I was really wanting to leave AK, I was not so happy.

Once we got to the front of the line, the idea of splitting a meal went out the window along with mobile ordering. Julia saw a dish with shrimp and Ross thought the cheeseburger pods sounded good. I asked if we could split those 2 meals, but the original plan to get the chicken and beef bowl was not laving Ross’ brain. So we ended up with a ton of food.

When we finished ordering our meals, Julia pipes up with, “What about dessert?” I didn’t think it was a good idea, but she really wanted to try the “blue puffy thing” she saw pictures of. I gave up and ordered it only to have her ask, “Is it chocolate?” No - it’s not chocolate – but they do have a chocolate dessert. So yes, we ended up with both.

After we paid, Ross suggested the girls and I go get a table. It was busy and he didn’t want to be walking around with a huge tray of food. So I walked over to the table section only to be stopped by a CM who wouldn’t let me pass without food. I showed him my receipt and pointed to Ross who was waiting for the food and told him I was going to get us settled in a seat. He finally let us pass and it was a good thing, because it took us quite a bit to find a space for us.

The food was okay, but I really didn’t enjoy it. I think I was too concerned with our O’hanna dinner. I thought we were finally out of there, but Julia really wanted to ride Dinosaur one more time. So off we went.

So completely off topic.... Legoland is building a resort and theme park about ten minutes from our house. It is supposed to be bigger than the park in Orlando, so needless to say, my Hope is beyond excited! She found out that they were running a contest for a kid reporter and decided that wanted to give it a shot. I wanted to share it with you guys - I'm so proud of her! (But I feel as though she is betraying poor Mickey! lol)

Wow! Great job Hope!

What a great end to the Crocs story, I love that Ross went through the whole experience of how he came to have the offending Crocs!
