HAPPY THANKSGIVING from Our Family to Yours!

Wishing you all a Very Happy Thanksgiving day.  May you and your family be blessed today, and every day with health, and good fortune.  

If you are "shopping" today, please be kind to those of us who have to work.  We can't be with our family and friends like most people.  Please, don't yell at cashiers.  They are only doing their job.  They will be doing the best they can, with the information they have been given, or what comes up on the register.  They don't set the prices, the company they work for does.  They have no control over it.  If they have to call for help with something, be patient.  They have to wait for an answer.  There is no need to swear or, or be nasty to anyone working in a store, or anyone waiting on a table you are sitting at in a restaurant.   After being in retail for a good part of 20 years, I have seen it all. 
Thank you.

My Disney Pin Collection Monday

I wanted to share this pin today as it's one of my favorites.  I love the "artsyness" of it, and the colors that represent Mickey, and his name written in as well.

We were presented with this beautiful plate by our server, Hristo (pronounced Christo) when we dined at Palo and celebrated our 5th Wedding Anniversary.  Yes, those of you who know us will realize that it was a bit after the fact, but this was one of three things we were celebrating on this cruise.  This was the night we chose for that.

This week on Throwback Thursday, we take a look back at our 2010 trip to Walt Disney World. We are at Chef Mickey's for dinner on our last night before our departure. We left WDW and headed south to the Keys.  

This was a fun evening for us, as it was Paul's first time at Chef Mickey's!

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY! My recent experiences with Ariel!

Updates for Downtown be Known as Disney Springs!

This is part of an ongoing series of posts highlighting the transformation of Downtown Disney® to Disney Springs.
Recently we shared some of the new experiences coming to Disney Springs at the Walt Disney World® Resort, including two new dining locations – Morimoto Asia and The BOATHOUSE.

Here’s a look at some of the latest changes at Downtown Disney as it continues to undergo its transformation into Disney Springs.
The “Springs Bottling Co.” marquee was recently installed above the future location of Morimoto Asia.  This architectural detail is a nod to the design story behind Disney Springs, which was inspired by Florida’s waterfront towns at the turn-of-the-century.

Right next to the recently announced site for The BOATHOUSE, the Waterview Stage is now offering nightly entertainment, along with beautiful views of Village Lake. Encourage your Clients to check a Times Guide for showtimes.

Opening later this month, the Food Trucks at Exposition Park on the West Side will be the permanent home for the owned-and-operated Downtown Disney
 food trucks. From chicken and waffles to tandoori spiced shrimp, the food trucks will offer a variety of delicious culinary creations daily.  This area will also offer additional seating for diners, as well as shaded areas during the day.
Finally, The Landing – the first phase of Disney Springs – is starting to come to life with a new pedestrian walkway now open between Portobello Yacht Club and Paradiso 37. Later this month, the walkway will be fully open and provide direct access to the West Side.
