Cape Stank - LOL, LOL!! That's a perfect name for it. We stayed at BCV recently and just loved the distinctive Beach Club aroma in the lobby combined with the scent of Gingerbread. Then, we would dread our walk past Cape May when our senses were bombarded with the rotten fish stench. WTH? I mean "What the funk?" Why can't they get fans or something to get rid of the malodorous fumes we were forced to endure on our way to the lounge or pool? My DH dislikes seafood and he just could hardly stand it. For a resort that prides itself on its distinctive smell (the lobby), why don't they fix this problem? I don't get it.

100% agree on cape May

They should do something

I work at a car plant where down draft and negative air pressure are standard practices to control contamination

They should be able to eliminate it or at least take it down a few notches for those not going into the restaurant

Homecomin' - Seriously some of the best chicken I've ever had. I know fried chicken. I'm a few minutes down the road from the "Poultry Capital of the World." Fried chicken is a staple on pretty much every menu.

Gainesville- Where my grandparents, Aunt/uncle lived, and where I spent summers with my Grandparents as a child. My Grandpa was the CFO of Stork Gamco for years... which makes the machinery to process chickens on.

I love that I can visualize where you guys live, and where your talking about at home. And I think I've mentioned before that back in the 90's my Aunt had a cookie store in Dahlonega. I would work there for cookies occasionally =D

Being seafood lovers, that frequently have huge seafood boils- You have to get the stuff out immediately! I still have to spray febreeze and air the kitchen out. We usually do, if the kids are here, say 15 lbs of crab legs, and 8 lbs of shrimp. I could not imagine trying to get rid of the smell cooking that much seafood. It spreads out so quick.

I have never noticed the smell but if we are at the Beach Club that means I am eating at Cape May.. and probably hungry! 😂 I can smell it once we walk into the actual restaurant area.

I'm with ya. Seems like a few well placed vents and fans could remedy the funk.

Can I just tell you that this photo is absolutely outstanding. Love it.
Gotta credit the DD. She picked up on the view almost immediately after leaving N&F.

Small world! Do you remember the name of the shop? We attended college in Dahlonega in the 90's. Love the this little town.

I may be more impressed that you've never picked up on the funk walking from the BCV lobby towards B&C. It can be noticed just about anytime between 07:00 and 11:00pm. Maybe its something us non seafood folk pick up on.

I swear I don’t remember smelling it, we eat there twice every trip since like 2008. I even asked DS and the Hubby. They both said no. Maybe it is a seafood lovers thing. We don’t smell it? Lol tonight’s dinner. 😳 I don’t ever smell garlic or onions either. Probably because I cook with it so much. F4223444-495F-472B-B5F3-D41773206E92.jpeg

I need that tub in my house!

We've yet to try Art's but it's going to be a must on out next trip, whenever that may be.
As I have said, when the time comes let me know if you're game for some points! Hope you and J are weathering the winter well. Ya'll still slated for a cruise?

I was trying to remember earlier while I was typing that out. I'll have to text my aunt and ask her. It was on the 2nd level, right on the square, next to a big pecan tree....

J and I would love to take another trip Fall of 20'. As much as we loved AKL I really want to try an Epcot resort. BW was my first choice but that clown pool kind of freaks me out and we love our pool time.

Our cruise through RC is set for Jan 20'. If we like cruising then eventually we'll try DCL.

I believe upstairs is now the location of a ghost tour company. Caruso's is long gone.

For everyone interested: This is Dahlonega at Christmas.

If you like Hallmark Christmas movies, check out Christmas in Homestead. It's not all that good, but it was filmed here.
It's such a cute place... I miss roasted peanuts from the general store

Whoa...I haven't finished this mess yet!?!? So sorry about that! We've been pretty busy lately and got distracted by planning this:

I think the DW and I have a new addiction. This trip will put us at platinum in time for our April 2020 trip #freePalo!

Anywho...After some pool time we were coming up on our FP times for MK. We made for the room to clean up and change. We took advantage of the bus app and noted we had about 15 minutes, plenty of time to make the stop.

Of course this arrival time changed about 5 times since the first time we checked it but ultimately arrived just 4 minutes past the original time that was posted, not bad.

Soon we were greeted by the madness but still had plenty of time for our first FP.

As we approached SM they were still making use of the extended queue for the FP line. Here is a picture of the DW doing her best "Naive Disney guest who thought the week after NYE would mean lite crowds" pose:

I think she nailed it.

Had to get the obligatory DD SM pic.

After SM we made our way over to HoP to check out the Hilary Trump animatronic again. The show is still very good.

Up next: Dinner before barnstormer 1.5

I wondered what happened to you. We will be cruising at the same time, are you sure you two don't want to try slumming and hang out with us on RCL? :happy:

Are those your dates?!?! Maybe a mini beer exchange is in order at the Miami port terminal.
