Sorry for the delay in writing, everyone. Painter was here for most of the day yesterday and everything in the house is all Topsy Turvey.

Anyway, I DID go to World of Disney on Monday night (March 29th) and there is no new OA on the shelves.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Sharon has a time machine! She went to WDW next monday! :p
 
Sharon,

We just got back from the 7-night Western Caribbean cruise and I have to confess that my evaluation of this experience really seems to mirror yours in many ways.

Our favorite excursion was the Ghost Tour in Key West, which we found on our own. Well worth the $15.00. Also a trip to The Garden of Eden bar in Key West was a real eye opener. I was amazed that, in the end, Key West was, hands down, my favorite onshore experience.

We did the Tulum trip. My wife loved it but I have been to Chichen Itza, so it wasn?t quite as impressive to me. We did the deep-sea dive (900 feet) in The Grand Caymans and that was fun. We also went to Hell which I loved due to its tackiness. I love roadside attractions so this makes sense.

The food was lousy, consistently, in the main dinning rooms. The servers were wonderful so we really didn?t want to complain (much). Thank god for Palos. PJ and the staff at Palos made the dining experience for us. Technically...a guest is only supposed to be allowed one champagne brunch and one dinner. However, when I told them of the awful meals that we were getting in the main dinning rooms they took pity on us and we had 4 brunches and three dinners. Every single entree that we had at Palos was as good or better than any meal that we have ever had anywhere. Plus...there are no kids a Palos, so it was blessedly quiet. The charge for diiners at Palos has increased to $10 a person, but is still well worth it.

You were right about 99% of the castmembers being old school Disney. I think that the 1-% who weren?t so wonderful would be a group comprised only of...the Captain. He was a little dour. Rachel (must have worked on the love boat) was so sweet and chirpy that she made my teeth hurt.

I am not a big shopper so that part of it didn?t work for me. My wife bought $700.00 worth of jewelry. I bought five T-shirts. lol

Overall a positive experience.

Hmmm...sounds like some of our experiences were the same, but not all., The food during our cruise was consistently awesome (I estimate gaining 4 lbs. [at 4'7" that's a LOT] in my first 4 days on the boat) and although I loved our assistant server to pieces (he smuggled me an Animator's Palatte charger plate on our last night ), our head server had good days and bad days.

My MIL has Rheumatoid Arthritis and uses a wheelchair for outside distances more than 50 or so feet (2 standard crutches for anything else)...so we pretty much stuck to the tours that Disney recommended, simply because we figured if Disney endorsed them, they must be wheelchair-friendly. Well they were...to an extent. Other countries aren't as advanced as the US so their version of "accessible" would have had the ADA's heads rolling backwards .

Yeah, Hell was cool. I adore tacky (make me drive Rt I95 and as long as I get to stop at Stuckey's and SOTB, I'm OK). Pity that every postcard we sent from there never reached its destination.

4 years, 7 months until I allow Joe to take me onto a cruise again .

No new official album, but in Mickey's of Hollywood at the Disney MGM Studios there is a new cd....the soundtrack to Wishes. I believe it was 12.98

Hope this helps.

Ah, so that one's finally out. I knew it was up for presale by mail order, glad to see it's finally on the shelves.... six months too late! :p Maybe this is the new "Official Album" of the rumor anyways - kind of a miscommunication.

You poor THING! And I have a feeling that whole story was true, huh? My condolences, not only on the passing of Norman, whoever he is, but on your apparent week from hell.

You need a trip to WDW, friend!

See, I'm easy. All anyone need do is mention impetigo anywhere within a rambling account detailing both people and places with whom I have neither interest nor acquaintance and suddenly I'm hanging on every contagious bacterial word.

Bill's narrative meets my simple criteria while the others sadly fall short.

I would have settled for a few words on the varicella-zoster virus or even a passing mention of *any* catarrhal symptoms. But that's just me.

Well, if it'll make you happy...one of my patients recently had a RCVA that left her with relatively little physical dysfunction but some MAJOR perceptual problems, including left hemianopsia, impaired left upper extremity propriception and tactile agnosia, as well as dressing apraxia. She understands her problems and is lucky enough to understand how to compensate for them to an extent, but BOY, is she INTERESTING!

Much better, Sharon, *much* better.

While I must admit I greatly prefer Hemianopia to "Hemianopsia," I accept that's nothing more than a personal dislike of the letter "s." (So much so that I'm having trouble not referring to you as Haron... but that's a thread for another day.)

Wow, who could have seen dressing apraxia coming... or ANYTHING associated with lesions of the non-dominant parietal hemisphere? Certainly not I!

Whew... INTERESTING stuff.

If we stuck to music...

there wouldn't be many new posts here would there?

Unless you are primarily interested in Discussing the New Mickey's Hip-Hop parade soundtrack there isn't much worth discussing.

I'd certainly rather have either of those situations than threads like this (well, after it went off course--it started off on track).

Since this is a common "concern" whenever I ask us to stay on topic, however, let's look at just what the last week has brought...discussion on Light Magic, the possibility of a new WDW OA (which turned out to be unfounded, but nevertheless provided some discussion), the new Wishes CD, Ariel's Grotto and MK Tomorrowland BGM loops, the new Snow White musical at DL, foreign releases, and various and sundry other things. Plenty of things to read and discuss, without resorting to a few people sharing private jokes without using private email.
 
Light Magic? I guess my interests in Disney Music are in different areas.

I usually find if I am not interested in a thread...I move on...

Sorry you are feeling like you are out of the loop.

Then by all means, don't read it. Evidently, others were interested enough to start a thread on it.

I usually find if I am not interested in a thread...I move on...
I'll admit, I skipped the "Wat OT - Medical Stuff (Yo! 1313!)" thread, guessing that it had little, if anything, to do with the subject of this site. But I did go into this thread assuming that it might have something to do with the new official album, even the lack of one, and not the textual equivalent of people's vacation slides.
 
Sorry if you don't find it interesting. I love hearing about any Disney vacations that people have. You know...sort of like trip reports. I read those too, and normally enjoy reading others experiences.

You're right...if ALL we did here was talk about Disney Music , this board wouldn't have nearly as many messages, nor nearly as much flavor as it does. I believe what you're complaining about is the normal flow of human conversation .

People are usually nice enough to bring off-topics into their own threads, to appease the anal-retentive among us, and I don't suppose it would be too much to ask for your forgiveness if it takes 2 or 3 messages for that to occur.

So, please tell us, what can YOU add to the "New OA @ WDW. Not." thread, besides unhappy comments about what it's turned into?

Have a Disney Day!
