    As most of you know my kids get married August 30th . Their wedding is at 5:00 PM and the reception is till 11:00 PM .
    Before the announcement Jim and I was planning on a cruise the 31st of August ( yes, the day after the wedding ) to the 4th of September and then WDW . DH put himself in charge of getting the plane tickets . I told him we needed to be in Orlando no later than 2:45 PM for the last bus to the cruise . Since then the cruise has been canceled and we are going to our friends in Cocoa FL . before heading to Disney .
    DH gave me the plane tickets for my birthday . It goes like this :
    Allentown PA ( small hometown airprort ) at 6 AM aboard the Spirit of St Louis to Philadelphia and then from Philadelphia arriving in Orlando at 10:36 AM .
    Will I Make It On The Plane ? Will I Make It To Florida without getting
    I tried changing the flight to a later time but with fares so high , there is no way . So, I will be crawling on the plane .
    Once we arrive in Orlando , we will get our bags and stand outside till our friend arrives . He said, he will ride around until he sees us rather than park .
    Once he picks us up and I am up to it , we may go to the outlets . If not, its back to our friends in Cocoa , unpack, turn the air conditioner on and crashing out until the 1st .
    September 1st ~ driving up the BLine to Cocoa Beach for the day . Afterwards we are going to a Lobster Shanty Shack that a DF has often recommended .
    September 2nd ~ spending the day at Rob's pool , having a barbeque and going out on the casino ship and then to the Tiki bar .
    September 3rd ~ going to SeaWorld .
    September 4th ~ probably just relaxing , swimming and out to dinner .
    September 5th ~ leaving at 6 AM to check in at Pop Century . Afterwards, we are heading to Epcot . First stop is Soarin , then over to WS/Canada to sign in for the pin event . We are taking our break at the UK for Fish N Chips N beer at the pub . then back to pin trading .
    The pin event closes at 6 PM and we have ADR's at the Rose & Crown Pub for 8:00 PM . for a patio seating .
    Epcot has evening EMH's we will be able to do the rides .
    September 6th ~ breakfast and back to Epcot for the pin event . Hit Soarin on the way in again . After the pin event we have ADR's at Le Celiers at 6:55 PM . After dinner, its back to Pop for an evening swim .
    September 7th ~ AK in the morning . We only want to do EE , KS and festival of the Lion King . Then we are going to Hollywood Studios . We have an early dinner at The Prime Time Cafe . We hope to ride the new Toy Story Ride , Little Mermaid, Beauty and The Beast and Fantasmic . Doing MK EMH 's
    September 8th ~ Waking up super early and taking a taxi to The Poly . Hoping by getting there at 7AM our room MAY be ready . If not, we are changing in our swim suits and enjoying the pool and the beach That evening we have ADR's at Tonys and we will do our shopping on Main Street . We want to watch Wishes from The Poly .
    September 9th ~ we check out but since we don't leave the resort till 2 PM . I will ask for a courtesy late check out at 1 PM and enjoy the pool and that gorgeous view for the last time .

    Maine'ly Lobster, Sister Tinker!!! Don't call it the Lobster Shanty as there is a place there with that name and it's HORRIBLE!!!!

    Maine'ly Lobster is a little white (with a mural) roadside place (will be south on A1A from Cocoa, that has some umbrella tables outside for eating.

    Have a delicious meal!!! The food is totally fresh and cooked to order.

    OMG we will be seriously missing each other by Moments...my plane land at MCO at 215pm on the 9th

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!

    I think I got rid of the menu or I'd post it again here. I'll check when I get home and see if it's still there.

    I might be there next week though, and if I stop, I'll get a menu. I'll have work related guests with me and they want to eat there. I can't eat there right now, so it will kill me to stop!

    Just wanted to be sure you didn't end up at that NASTY Lobster Shanty.
