  5. Works for me. Can we be back at Bay lake? I think that is next up in the rotation.

    Bay Lake also gives us a couple of options for post-fishing breakfast as well (if we decide to do so).

    Wait...did you just say 'post fishing breakfast'? I just got dizzy and almost fell over. How early do you people get up to fish!!?? I'd consider breakfast an optional 10am to noon thing, and then fishing AFTER that. Might as well just go fishing the night before and don't bother going to bed. You could catch the fish by just grabbing them off the bottom of the lake, as they'll all be asleep! ;)

    The earlier fishing time (and better success rate) at Disney is 7am to 9am… and coming from a guy that won’t even rope-drop, appreciate the miracle . Though it makes for a very long day if you throw Bob into the mix on Pre-meet night.

    I’m pretty sure you qualify for sainthood now. You’ve made it to the dock in time for fishing three Pixelmanias in a row.

    I’ll be there, probably Friday 12/2- Monday 12/11. Might have to work remotely Monday & Tuesday to preserve enough vacation days for next year. I keep finding new annual events to add to the calendar... Too much to photograph and so little (vacation) time.

    Count me in for fishing.

    Dave & Gillian, sorry you won’t make it this year. See you in 2023.

    John, enjoy Italy. We’ll miss you at Casa de Gary.

    Oh, and for those who didn’t notice like me, the Southwest booking window is open for December.

    If not grand Flo… steakhouse 37 or whatever took over the Wave (that we ate at last year) was very good too.

  16. So we are set with the plans for fishing. The date is that Wednesday morning 12/7/22 before the start of Pixelmania. The boat line up for boat one is full with Joanie, Red, Gary Faucon, Michael and his Dad, Mr. Summers. After fishing we will head over to the wave for breakfast, if we can get the reservation.

    If there are other people that want to go fishing, they will have to set up their own boat rental and breakfast reservation. I can give you the details and the information as to how to do that.

    I'm not sure about the rates that Disney is charging for the boat this year since everything experienced a price hike at Disney, but I can give you the number to call to make the reservation.

    The boats can take a maximum of five people and it's one price for the boat which you would divide up into the five people that are going.

    There is also the tip that you would give the guide. FYI: this is pretty much the only money that these guys make so we tend to be on the generous side with the tip. Disney only pays them for 2 hours of work which is ridiculous because a lot of them drive in just for that 2 hour period. They might get lucky if they get a second charter in the afternoon, but usually that doesn't happen, so the tip is important for those guys.

    Let me know if all of that information is needed and I can pass it along.
