Hi everyone,

Today's report is going to be short (for a change). I "hit the wall" so to speak, and all I wanted to do was sleep all day. I woke up around 8:00 this morning, bummed around the Lodge for awhile, and then went to the Yacht and Beach Club to go to Beaches and Cream for lunch. We saw a bride-to-be in the lobby of the Yacht Club. Her dress was beautifully beaded, but it looked like the bride was freaked out. She had been crying. Hope she wasn't left at the altar.

We both had strawberry sodas and Prime Rib Philly Sandwiches. Unfortunately, our server had a severe attitude problem. I know that everyone has bad days (I certainly do) but when she tossed my plate on the table, french flies flew and I wound up wearing onions and green peppers on a clean shirt, I knew we had a problem. When she didn't apologize, I decided that I'd had enough. I have worked in the service industry, and I know how much servers get paid....but I'm not about to tip well for an attitude. So I left her a 41-cent attitude "adjustment."

We decided to dash our plans for the day and go shopping at Downtown Disney for the day. I thought that might be relaxing. A trip into the World of Disney proved me wrong. However, I did pick up another Mickey pillar candle, a few more pins, and a Millennium video. Used my Disney Club card and got a 10% discount. The card has already paid for itself in just a few months.

Outside the store, I noticed that my little toes were hurting, and once we got back to the Lodge, it was confirmed. Blisters. I was surprised, because I didn't think we'd been doing all that much walking....or maybe my second set of tennis shoes didn't fit properly. In any case, I brought some of those new-fangled Band-Aids along, and that seems to have done the trick.

We went to the Whispering Canyon Café for dinner, and were served by Cindy Lou (Who?). She gave us a lot of attitude as well, but it was all in fun. When I paid for the bill with my Visa, she announced to everyone there that my credit card had been "declined." I coulda died right there. When I realized she was kidding, I think I turned several shades of purple. Anyhow, the dinner was just what I needed to get back into the Disney mood.

Saw another beautiful bride in the lobby of the Wilderness Lodge. By contrast, she was absolutely radiant. It was funny, when I first saw her out of the corner of my eye, I assumed she was one of Disney's princesses. But after I saw that she was a new bride, I realized that her joy and happiness made her more beautiful than any Disney princess. What a lucky groom! You could tell she was truly in love.

Tomorrow: back on schedule. Early Entry for MGM, doing a DVC presentation at 10:00, and on to Epcot for the Candlelight Processional and Tapestry of Nations.

PS: I went back to buy the fiber-optic jacket today. Guess what? All sold out. Moral: Buy it when you see it.....or something must have stopped me from buying it in the first place. Perhaps sanity.

Expenses:

Beaches and Cream: $32.00
World of Disney: $56.00
Whispering Canyon Café: $60.00

Oh no. Not the jacket! :eek: That would really be something. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you get another chance at it.

We saw several brides at WDW as well. Getting married at WDW must really be a fairy tale come true.

Thanks for sharing your trip with us.

Lisa :)
