again on the room and STILL not ready. Almost 4 pm, and I told them
we had a dinner reservation soon in Epcot. The CM was really nice
and put a rush on the room. So when we called back 30 minutes later
it was finally ready.
We didn’t really have time to unpack anything more than our clothes
for that evening, and the poor bell person had to make three trips
to the room. Once with the bags we brought with us today. Once with
the bags transferred from the Wilderness Lodge last Thursday, and
last to deliver our Owner’s Locker.
Anyway, it was out the door and off to catch the boat to MGM. It
arrived quickly and soon we were entering the park. We arrived just
before dinner and went to the Prime Time Cafe to checkin. It took a
while before our table was ready, but we enjoyed looking at all the
items around that we could remember our parents having in there
homes. :-) After we were seated our waiter turned out to be a fun
one. He is from Morrocco, and I can NOT remember (or spell!) his
name. He has worked there for several years though. He was good and
immediately got after us for elbows on the table, etc.
each ordered dinner and everything was quite good. But dinner took a
LONG time. The girls loved it though so we didn’t miss the park
time. They were having fun working out how to avoid eating
vegitables, and Maddy even volunteered to run mommies veggies
wrapped in a napkin to the restroom to through them away! :-O
Well, soon it was time for dessert. And Maddy had left a chicken
nugget that SOMEHOW found its way onto mommy’s plate. The waiter
just STARTED to question Maddy about that, and she IMMEDIATELY
spilled the beans that mommy was much worse, and had thrown her
veggies away in the bathroom!!! :-D OMG – I think the waiter was in
love with Maddy after that! She got all kinds of thanks, and a hug,
and mommy got in BIG TROUBLE!! LOL
Off to stand with her nose on the wall, and then sent off to another
room with another family! It was so funny, I was dying laughing! :-)
:-) He finally let Kristen come back and we eventually had dessert.
We had a great time and the kids can’t wait to return.
When we were finally ready to leave it was already after park
closing! :-O We came to MGM JUST for dinner tonight! We slowly
excited the park (with a bit of shopping) and waited for the boat.
We jumped on when it arrived and then were soon back at our dock.
While walking back to the Beach Club we saw that they were having a
movie on the beach tonight. The were playing Cars, and had it set up
very nice. Beach chairs, and a firepit area were you could make
Smores. We were tired and stuffed, but it did look like fun. Still
we continued on back to the room.
I mentioned above - I am trying out Owner’s Locker this trip and it
was in the room upon our return. I had received a text message
that it was delivered to the resort earlier in the day. And
they brought it up right after our luggage.
just had to break the security ‘lock’. And inside I found
instructions and paperwork including a inventory sheet so we can
remember what all we put in there. The box seems quite big when it
arrives, and there is room for a lot of stuff in there. It also
comes with dividers and a nice little case to hold smaller items.
Very nice and we almost immediately started filling it up with
things we knew we wanted to keep down here.
Here we unpacked and
then settled in for the night. Early Entry tomorrow at MGM, so we
need to get some rest. Good night!
