    96 days, but with a great twist! We may be going for a long weekend in just 36 days!

    Girls only trip is 126 days. But I think DH and I might head down in January, he will go for two weeks and I’ll join him for one of the weeks, I can’t take two weeks off from work.

    Bummer, but at least you did get to sneak a quick trip in just before F&W ended.

    That just means it's time for the next countdown!

    BTW, you made me curious with Zimmerman International... I was wondering what airport that was! I think I figured out what it is(it's not an airport, right?), but not sure.

    I've heard people jokingly call Orlando Sanford international airport as Zimmerman International, after a certain idiot. Kind of in poor taste, but it is what it is. Like when they rename an airport after a worthless mayor or have his stupid face on huge banners in said airport, like Denver used to have for Wellington Webb.

    It was a good trip, short and sweet. My legs are sore! We hit almost all kiosks. Used Uber a lot, it's about $48 to/from Sanford/Disney Springs.

    Oops... my bad. didn't make the connection to THAT Zimmerman.

    I actually googled it and found there is a wine importing company by that name.... though maybe you were getting a head start .

    Glad it was a good trip. Kudos for hitting so many booths. I didn't come any where near all 35 when I was there, so many to try!

    To keep with he thread topic: I am not yet fully committed here, but I did go on a whim and make a single dining reservation for my potential F&G trip the other day... if that plays out, 176 and counting...

    Hahahahahaaaaaaa, yup. We hit about thirty of them. The three of us shared a lot of things so we could try a wider variety. I lost one of my little AP buttons yesterday between AK and MK somewhere, but was able to grab a replacement today right before we left. Since we stayed at Best Western near DS, we left luggage at Beach Club Bell desk again and took Uber from there. People at the Disney resort are always happy to care for your baggage, and often they refuse to take a tip for it. We still try though.

    Welcome back to reality. Glad you had a great time.

    Some of the lines for food kiosks were long, but nothing like a new attraction! We tried some really amazing food and some great drinks.

    Non-F&W factoid, Navi River Journey was very cool, I'll be doing it again. The shaman animatronic is amazing, far more impressive than the ones in frozen ever after some people thought were great. And there's a bubble drink from there that is, while sweet, quite delicious... Scenery is really cool both day and night.

    If you mean the Night Blossom (non alcoholic drink from Pongu Pongu quick serve stand), I'd definitely agree! I had one of these one day after (unfortunately) unsuccessfully waiting for FoP on standby in the morning when the ride ended up being down for several hours. I gave up after a couple hours and had one of these and it was a nice way to cool off a little after not getting to go on the ride. I don't believe I have ever had Passion Fruit Boba Balls before, but I liked them.

    I had double bad luck with the same exact thing happening with FoP the next morning (don't know how long it was down, but I gave up after maybe 2 hours again), but went back for one of these drinks again before departing. (I did get to ride FoP on an earlier day in the trip luckily, these were attempted second visits that failed).
