Bummer about the cold. I'm just getting over one myself! It sucks, but it sucks worse in WDW! Hang in there and feel better soon!

Hope you feel better. A while ago I used to always get a cold on every vacation I went on. Not sure why. It stopped happening a few years ago though.

Really nice! Is there a whole rest area with seating and charging stations? Or is it just the potties?

Oh, and they started enforcing the new rules for SOTMK cards yesterday instead of this coming Sunday. Lots of CMs say they were caught off guard by the change.

You have to play at least one portal in order to get a new set of cards for the day.

Jeff, regarding your expanding study in color of select WDW men's rooms..... if you go to the AK, see if you can capture the jarring transition from the 3rd world Harambe Village to the 1st world men's room across from the Tusker House Restaurant.

Also, for extra bonus points, go check out the tile mural in the men's room next to the Hoop De Doo Review.

Just for you, Kristen, I went back and looked further this evening laugh

No sitting areas or charging stations in the Men's. Joe would not let me venture into the Women's, so I cannot speak for that side....

Bill, Joe says for you to stop encouraging this odd behavior.... laugh

Am loving your trip report, where did you get the fab event pin? Did you up it early in the evening? As its our first visit I'm not sure when is the best time to buy the event stuff!

Hi Sally-Ann. Just seeing this. I'll talk more about it in our trip report, but we got the pin at the Emporium on Main Street. They were selling them pretty early - I want to say we picked ours up around 5:00. The Trading Post in Frontierland had a massive line and they were not selling them until 7:00 PM.

There were a lot of inconsistencies with who was doing what, when. Another example was the special SOTMK cards. At 4:00 on MNSSHP day, after we got our wrist bands and treat bags, we went to the Sorcerer station behind the Christmas Shoppe, and they told us they were not passing out the special event cards until 7. But when we got to the Firestation location at 4:20, there was a line and they were passing them out already.

Oh! Wait - you got punked by Joe and Disney Floral?! Don't I recall that he was supposed to get a treat this time to make up for a snafu from your last trip? I think this is going to be a good story biggrin

yay Tell it, tell it! yay

Yes!!! You are exactly right! This was supposed to be my surprise for him after the snafu from a few years ago. But they turned the tables on me. I'll tell the whole story in my report. Disney Floral, and Karen K. in particular, are incredibly awesome.
