    thank you so much for the shout out, AJ! it means a lot. :)

    btw, it’s been well over a week since we were at DL & we’re still munching on that peanut brittle. it tastes just as good as the day we bought it! excellent stuff.

    on a side note, my little gal keeps on asking when we’re going back to disneyland. at least several times a day, she’ll ask, “mommy, go to disneyland?” or “mommy, go on haunted mansion? i like haunted mansion.” or “mommy, go on pirates of the caribbean? pirates are friends.” or “mommy, go on small world? i like singing kids.” it warms my heart knowing she’s experiencing & loving the disney magic too! :)

    “Pirates are Friends,” and “I like singing kids,” are too funny! Robin, that’s awesome! But it’s never helpful to have yet ANOTHER person in your house longing to go to Disneyland — it’s so hard to be strong and not blow your life savings on it when everyone wants to go! :-)

    We really enjoyed the Spirit of Aloha show last summer. Yes, the acting and story line are cheesy. But it’s a fun time for the family, and I thought it was interesting to see the different kinds of Polynesian dance. In addition, the food was yummy!

    I don’t really understand why so many people actively discourage others from attending the show, at least from what I’ve seen on message boards and such.

    Shayne — Good question. I haven’t been to the show, yet, so I can’t say one way or the other. Glad to have your review!
