At Epcot with Commodore Dave.........

Commodore Dave, Ada May & Donald at Epcot.....
Check out our 25th Anniversary Disney buttons......... Although, I never thought Donald would put it on, he was a good sport and enjoyed the special attention we received from all the Disney cast members and other Disney World visitors during our stay. This year Disney's slogan is "Celebrate the Magic", so if you are having a birthday or anniversary, they are going all out to help you celebrate. While it's been about a decade since we've been to Disney, there were so many changes and new places to see and explore, but visitor hopitality is still there number one priority and we certainly appreicated all the attention to detail from the themed resorts, and all the perfectly manicured grounds. At Epcot, they were hosting a "Festival of the the Flowers" so everywhere, spring was in the air. And making it extra special, we caught up with Salem's own Dave Butler who works at Disney. When he's not driving the Salem Trolley in Salem, he's navigating the transportation boats, coincidently called the "Friendship" fleet, between resorts to the International Gateway of Epcot. Doesn't he look so smart in his uniform.

I loved the slide show! Frankie & I stayed at the New Orleans theme hotel - I thought I saw some pics from near there. And I had stayed at the 101 Dalmations themed hotel with Ali. Disney is great! Another time the three of us went and stayed at The Hard Rock Cafe. Always a great time in those parts! Unless I go near a roller coaster. UUggghh I can not even write about that!

Hi Terri,
We stayed at Port Orleans too, at the French Quarter. Price was right, but the rooms are starting to show wear and tear a bit, and the food offerings were minimal. They still have the best pool and it's easy to get to Downtown Disney by using the canal boats. Certainly after traveling across country, we didn't want to drive anywhere for four days. No one beats there transportaion system.
Just walking around the beautiful grounds is fun for me.........

That is where we stayed :-) Frankie hurt his knee and I had to wheel him around. Actually that was years ago. He just had an MRI on his knee and he has arthritis. With his love for skiing he is trying to see what he can do for it.
