    Florida rain...

    A different rain story from Belle's. We were booked for one of the earliest Star Wars Fireworks dessert parties. The early parties were held outdoors in a roped-off area in the main plaza. We arrived early at HS and checked the area where the party would be, then set off to do some attractions before the event. I think we were coming through the Star Wars store after disembarking from the ride, when the sky opened up. I mean it was pouring intensely. Fortunately we were under cover in the store,at least so I thought, when Belle put on her poncho. So I started putting mine on, thinking that she just wanted to be ready when the rain lightened up. Before I could get my poncho on all the way, Belle took off towards the dessert party area. After expressing a couple of non-Disney remarks, I set off after her and still struggling with the poncho, was immediately soaked through. Totally drenched we arrived at the outdoor location where 2 brave CM's were stationed to let us know that the party had been moved to an indoor location near where the dessert party is now held . Essentially, we walked from one side of the park to the other,in a driving rain, with now useless ponchos. She didn't want to be late

    Florida rain...

    One of our favorites was our first trip with local friends. Their son was wandering around in a blue poncho that made us think he looked like a little blue Yoda. Then after some time in the rain we was cold, so he asked me to pick him up and hold him so he could warm up against me. Being the fat guy in the group means I tend to be the portable space heater as well @MizFiz could fill you in on more details

    Florida rain...

    I have told these stories before on chat, but a couple of storms that stand out was when we were on the tram in the AK parking lot and it started to pour like crazy. Well we were getting pretty wet as it was on the tram since it's wide open, then we get to our section and decide to run as fast as we can. Of course our car is alllllll the way down at the end of the aisle. We did have umbrellas but they did absolutely nothing for us as the wind was whipping the rain all around us like crazy. We were soaked. We just stopped running and just walked and laughed the rest of the way to the car in the pouring rain as we couldn't get any wetter. Another time we were on Splash Mountain towards the end of the ride, where that waterfall is and the people on the right always gets wet. Well we got stuck there and the skies opened up. Omg, we were just sitting ducks, literally. The whole boat was hysterical laughing. When we got off the ride the people waiting to ride next were looking at us like did these people just swim the ride instead of being in the boat lol. We were also at Universal when Hurricane Charlie came through. I remember we had to leave the park at 2 p.m. We were with my older sister's family and we were talking like it's going to be no big deal, we even made plans to meet for dinner, parted ways and the skies decided to part right over us. Again, completely drenched by the time we got to the hotel.

    OK, so the better one for me was getting stuck at the top of the lift hill on Everest in a very light drizzle and having to be evacuated! Best day ever! Got to see yeti with lights on

    We got caught in one back in 2011, we were at MGM and we were all the way back at Muppets, and they really did not want you standing in the exit to wait it out! Had some squishy shoes after that!

    Florida rain...

    Two rain stories stand out for me.... One was a few years back when Fiz/Miz/Jim and I got stuck at Yacht Club during a deluge. So we sat on the couches, put our feet up and watched the rain and guests running thru it for well over an hour! The second was one everyone remembers, I'm sure.....meeting the EOE gang for dinner at Biergarten the sky opened up just as we arrived in Germany and we got stuck in the covered area just outside the restrooms....everyone was soaked! Osh/Mrs Osh were stuck at the Boardwalk hotel with huge puddles on the balconys....A rainstorm to remember!!

    Oktoberfest at Shades of Green

    Shades of Green Resort recently announced their annual "Oktoberfest". Old Harmony and I have gone the past 3 years and highly recommend it! It is open to the public, features a HUGE buffet and entertainment (including a German band). The cost of the buffet has been around $20 each; there is a cash bar, too. We were honored to be at SoG's celebration with so many from the armed services. It's easy to get to SoG...you can park there, or walk there from the Poly. The pathway is well marked. We wish we could go this year but will unfortunately miss it...:( . New Harmony

    Do you really want to this again Nut? Ya sure? Ok then. Happy Birthday to the girl whose legs dangle from the chairs at O'Hana (this is not a short joke, just an observation). Happy Birthday to the girl who laughs easily at fat men running in bars (not a fat joke, just an observation). Happy Birthday to the girl who enjoys an amateur's silly WDW travelogues (not a film critique, just an observation). Happy Birthday sweetie! Have a good one.....you deserve it.

    Florida rain...

    the year we took my niece Jess with us it was end of June so it basically rained a bit every afternoon but every time we went to a park it would pour, then stop when we were on the bus. We would take our ponchos off and as soon as the bus stopped at the park, the skies opened up again! other than that we seemed to luck out, it if poured we just shopped or were lucky enough to be on a ride/attraction. now if you want to hear some camping in the rain/thunderstorm/tornado warnings I have a LOT of those!

    One of many rain stories for us! August 2008, our first stay as DVC owners and a birthday gift of a Wishes Cruise from my children. Bliss Tropical storm hits. wihumphrey goes down to the lobby to see if the Wishes Cruise would be cancelled. Person at the concierge desk say they are not. We head out to take the bus to the Magic Kingdom, take the monorail to the Poly to get the cruise, walk through the slashing storm all the way to the boat dock. A boat captain is on the dock and tells us the cruises are cancelled and we should have been told that at the hotel. No bliss

    Disney Old Key West

    OKW really has been good to us. Our home resort is AKL and SSR. But due to all ways being points poor we would end up at OKW. If I were to complain about anything it is the lack of a large quick serve. Olivia's rocks. Resort is always clean. CM's have always been pleasant and accommodating. We usually ask for building 55 and the quite pool there has always been nice. Every now and then you get a crowd but I believe that can happen at any pool. Be sure to check out the resort tour if they still have it in Sep 18. Tells the story of Conch Flats

    Disney Old Key West

    Let me see what I can dig up. I usually head down to Building 55 to try and get a canal view. South Point is second stop. But, these buildings are probably close to the furthest from the main building. Part of why we like them

    Just an addendum to this story. Lobby cm also told me that if we did not show up at the dock we would be billed for the cruise whether or not it was cancelled. Next day a different lobby cm told me I was given incorrect info from an inexperienced cm.

    Thanks! I have the site bookmarked on my phone. I don't have an AP card, though, just an exchange certificate that allowed us to get MagicBands. We have to activate the annual passes at Guest Services. Maybe we'll get our cards then.
