    Hi everyone, got back Wednesday afternoon and am really fed up to be here. We had an absolutely brilliant fortnight in Orlando, apart from one day when it rained and the day we came home when there was an absolutely amazing thunder storm, the weather was brilliant. I will try and get around to doing a trip report but will for now just give you the highlights and one lowlight
    Highlights
    Meals at:
    Yachtsman x 2 (pictures will prove this)
    Yak & Yeti
    Captain's Grille
    Cape May x 2
    Crystal Palace
    California Grill
    and I now can't remember the others and the one lowlight in meals was at Narcoossee's where it was so cold we were all shivering, waitress was in a little world of her own and kept forgetting to give us things, cleared plates while one of us was still eating and atmosphere was not good. Now I have to own up to the fact that both my son and I are smokers (Boo! I hear you cry) but, we both met other smokers in our hiding places and it was so interesting to talk to ordinary Americans. They came from as far apart as Seattle to New Jersey but everyone we spoke to was absolutely lovely, especially the guy who thought my son was my husband!! (son wasn't too pleased though). I keep looking at my watch and going back five hours and thinking about what is happening now in WDW. Concierge at BC was fantastic and they were incredibly helpful, Ricardo was his usual lovely self. I always want to put him in my pocket and bring him home. I'm going to have to stop now or I will go on for hours, oh UC was absolutely fantastic. Will try and put some photos on when I've learnt how to do it.

    Welcome back home!!!

    See I've not booked yachtsman/california grill this time :/ mmmmm

    yeah, service is VERY variable there I'm afraid :(

    Not at all! :hug2: in fact the constant onslaught of prejudice is getting tedious. Everyone knows the smoking issues but it's time to say if someone makes a personal decision to smoke and they don't inflict it on anyone else, leave em alone ! In my most humble opinion :D

    ooo yes please :D

    Cannot wait to see your photos, and please!!! Go on for hours about your holiday! I want to hear every bit of it. :yes:

    Narcoossee's. :sigh: We did not have a good experience there, either.

    I know what you mean about checking the time.... Herself has an unnerving way of saying, "What were you doing yesterday at this time?Or, Last week at this time? Or, Last Month?" You get the idea. :sigh:
