Pool time was goo till we had lunch we saved 7 chair with all our stuff on it went and had lunch can back to a fat bald guy sitting right smack dab in the middle of out 7 seat I asked him why he moved my stuff he replied I did not I said yes you did and the fun began.
I said I had a party of 7 with my Boston accent then he said the janitor moved it so he took the seats and then I said that he was rude he then told me to go PArRK MY CAAR. At which Time I basically was going to lose it and said a few nasty commits to him and searched for new seat which I found on the other side of the pool. To my dismay they (seats) happened to be right next to his damn wife who most likely can not stand him either cause she was sitting far away from Him..
This made Gray goose time happen early lol..
Supper came so we went to Everything POP food court. One thing here the food is basically good food .. Nothing to rave about .
Now later that night I had To load up the car at 12:00pm and poof the Jonas Brother pulled up seems all the Disney Kids stars were at AKL.. that is the staging hotel for them for this weeks fun at Disney.
Trip over all was great Disney did give us 14 one day passes that non expire due to the other lady in our party getting sick along with the special fast passes.
SO all in all I CAN NOT WAIT TO GO BACK
