Yes the purse grapes are mine.

If you were a member youd know I was having a swell time at DTD
I was going to say it must be somewhere around 5 because in 2016, we were going in to check in for our Tony's ADR when it started. My husband, being a foreigner and the Dutch not doing anything like our flag ceremony, was confused that I stopped until it was over. He didn't realize that's standard procedure for us. And I was watching Full House with DD a couple of days ago, and we got to the episode where Stephanie is going to school and DJ and Kimmy tell her she only needs to know the pledge of Allegiance. They recite it, and DD asked it that was a real thing. I said yes, we recited the pledge every morning in school at the beginning of school. They don't do anything like that here. I would guess that a lot of the people who don't stop might be foreigners....Canadians would still be speaking English, so you wouldn't necessarily peg them for foreigners, but they'd have no reason to salute our flag. And there may be some with religious objections, too. I remember there was a Jehovah's Witness boy in my class who wasn't allowed to participate in the recitation of the pledge. My husband and I were married less than 2 weeks after 9/11 and we did Disney/Universal for our honeymoon. Everyone was very patriotic at the time, flags everywhere, God Bless America on the radio several times a day...he thought it was nuts you don't need to make such a display to be proud of your country. And people would get offended if you weren't "American" enough...I think he felt a bit unwelcome, not being American. At the time, we still lived in the US....he was just as shaken by 9/11 as everyone else, but he didn't see how displaying flags and singing songs fixed anything. I doubt anyone means disrespect by it...it's just not something they are familiar with, OR they don't feel that saluting a flag is their way of being patriotic.It always says “schedule not available” but if you say 5 than 5 it is
Nothing like a fresh beer for the walk to Studios, especially if the room was just decontaminatedWe do the room "wipe-down" as well with the Lysol/Clorox wipes. Just a precaution along with washing pretty much every dish/bowl/glass/pot/pan/silverware we think we'll use while in a room with a kitchen. I also didn't ever think to grab an adult beverage for the walk over from BW to HS. Brilliant!
For food: wife ALWAYS must get the Fresh mozzarella sandwich w/ oven dried tomatoes, arugula, and herb aioli on focaccia from Leaping Libations, the bar at the pool. And Ample Hills on the Boardwalk is great (in our opinion) for dessert. Belle Vue Lounge (located to the right of the lobby when you enter) has a peaceful atmosphere in the evening for drinks and a nice patio (but you cant see Illuminations from it). They also serve continental breakfast if you want avoid going down to the actual Boardwalk. Or simply walking around the Boardwalk at night (preferably w/a brewski) is always fun. And ESPN Zone and Big River are open late so its good to be able to get some food when you return from the parks.baseline is a HS must do ! love the charcuterie plate! we leave on the 29th for our 7 day magic. we have 3 days at BW in the middle of the trip. it will be the first time my wife and I are staying there. any BW must-dos or must-sees?
Thanks Max! And glad to see busT stops is catching on, lol. And for the record, I have tried to get C to pose in front of the AK sign again, but she will not. Not yet at least, hahaha!Hey!
Glad that you and the others were not seriously hurt inthe accident
But do not take concussions lightly my friend
Looks like the crumple zone inthe truck worked properly
Love the report so far
Kate sounds amazing - better than the interactions I had on my trip
Bust Stops - almost as good as C standing perfectly in front of the Animal Kingdom sign
Yes - that one was priceless
I'm sorry, that bartender wasn't being slick, he was being a d&$#. That is straight up unacceptable.The bartender said it was, but it had a new can. I noticed the beer was amber in color. Pilsner is not amber. I asked to see the can, and of course it was not Stiltsville. The bartender was very "New York-ish" in not only his accent but his attitude. He was not rude, just very slick in his manner of trying to convince C that she would like this beer even though she explained she does not like amber beer at all. He continued with "c'mon, try it, youll like it". I chuckled because C does not respond well to high pressure sales tactics. She is always polite, but will simply shut it down. She just gave him a long stare and said no thanks. He asks me if I want to try it and said he was gonna pour it out anyway. I said sure. Im not a huge fan of amber beer but it wasnt bad. So he hands C the bill and it had the beer on it. I thought he just gave it to us since he was gonna pour it out and I explained I wouldnt have tried if it he was gonna charge us. He said, well, if you didnt like it, I would have let you have it, but since you did, I figured you would pay for it. I just shook my head and paid him. It wasnt that serious but I didnt appreciate the slickness.
True, And in hindsight I should have just set the beer down and told him I didnt want it, but at least I had a beer while I waited for my burger so it wasnt a total rip off. Plus, C and I had some fun talking in a new york accent after our interaction with him.I'm sorry, that bartender wasn't being slick, he was being a d&$#. That is straight up unacceptable.
I agree. Plus, it used to be that you could not be served something different when you ordered a particular brand without your express consent. And as a bartender he should know that pilsners and ambers are very different (and this comes from someone who likes beer but is in no way an aficiando!) and not try to sneak it past you.I'm sorry, that bartender wasn't being slick, he was being a d&$#. That is straight up unacceptable.
