MaryEllen, love the "personal" photo updates.

Hooray for a no headache day and getting to the MK shortly after rope drop. I've never been able to take pictures of the mosaics as it is always so darn crowded when we go through there (I want to try harder this year).

I'm finally all caught up! So I'm going to give my updates to everything that happened since I last added my update!

I was very, very far behind!! All the way back at Raglan Road on our first night all together!


OMG I was further behind then I thought! I was way back before dinner at Raglan Roads!

Of course, before dinner at Raglan Road Christine and Tracy and I did stop at the margarita stand! I canít remember what I got but I have a sneaking suspiscion it was wither the Patron Anejo Rita or the 1800 Rita! Whichever it was it was good and like Tracyís it was gone all too quickly. I remember talking myself out of getting one for the walk over to Raglan! LOL!

I really enjoy Raglan Roads! MY family does as well! We ate our first meal there in December and I donít think it will be our last! Of course, in my family the irish pub thing is very popular! MaryEllen, I most agree that the booth was not at all comfy! I still want to know why the table was shorter then the actual seat bench!!! That left the people on the end which Ĺ as much room!

World of Disney of ridiculously crowded that night!! OMG! I do believe I managed to procure some goods for the kiddos and some beach towels to leave in big purple box of happiness! I believe I also got the spend enough $$ and get this item for $15 deal of another beach towel which I used during the trip!

BTW, Holy Moly with the picture of the bobcat Cynthia! I must admit, I was slightly freaked out when you ladies told me about it! A BOBCAT! Crazy! I saw a gator once and that was scary too!

So, now Iílll my night after DTD! Back in the room I relaxed and got ready for bed. I layed in bed, watched the news and checked email and FB on my ipad. Then I decided to check my bank account online. I have this ocd thing where I check it at least twice a day at home. So I checked! I noticed a lot of money that should have been in my account wasnít! What was worse was that it was my trip $$! Then I discovered the problem! I had taken a car service from my house to the airport so DH didnít have to get up at some ungodly hour of the morning to take me to the airport. I should have been charged a little over $100 for the trip. The charges to my card, and there were 3, totaled well over $2000!!! I almost had a heart attack! You know that feeling you get when you get scared or really nervous? The only where you get a little dizzy and it feels like the world is spinning around? That was how I felt!! Of course, it was around 11 at night! What was I going to do?!

I called the limo company and left a message and then I called the bank! I must say, after this incident I LOVE my bank!!! I spoke to a very nice lady who told me what procedures to follow etc and she apologized that this happened when I was on vacation! I thanked her profusely and then tried to go to sleep!

Needless to say, it was very hard to fall asleep! Luckily I had some bottles of wine I had brought from home and was in desperate need of a glass! A nice big glass of wine later and I was asleep!

The next morning I was up bright and early trying to get this little situation resolved!

I called the limo company around 8 am, I think. Of course, it being Sunday there was no one there! So I left a message demanding a call back ASAP!

I showered, got myself ready and waited. When I hadnít gotten a call back at 9 I called them again! I spoke to a very young sounding girl who said that the owner of the company wouldnít be in because it was Sunday but she would leave a note and have her take care of it the next day!

Really?! Are you that stupid?! At that point I got annoyed! Really annoyed!! I told her that she would call the owner of the company right then and have it taken care of or I would call the police because they were trying to steal my money! She changed her tune and said sheíd call owner and call me right back.

About 15 minutes later the girl called me and said the owner was on her way there and she would take care of it! I told the girl that I was on vacation and they were ruining it and this must be taken care right now!! She promised me a call back from the owner when she got there!

I went back and forth about what to do! I was annoyed at that point because I really wanted to be in MK! I knew Jen and Christine were both headed there and I really wanted to ride HM with Jen! I could wait in the room until the stupid owner called me, but she was going to call my cell phone and Iíd have it with me. So I decided to leave and head to MK!

I was stressed and annoyed but I knew a little Disney Magic would help immensely! It did!

My MK pics;















lunch!



After lunch we split up I did a little shopping! I donít think I bought anything! I was afraid to spend any $$!!!

A few more MK pictures;





Back at BC I called the limo company again and spoke to the girl in the office again, not the owner, who had never called me! She promised that the charges were being reversed and it had all been taken care of! I tried to let it go and believe that they were trying to do the right thing and they had just screwed up!

MEK, I felt sooooo bad for you that day! What a terrible way to feel on vacation!! I hope our nice relaxing afternoon at the pool helped!

Cynthia, I must agree that the whole alone thing is a bit weird!! Traveling with DH is much different then traveling with the kids but my alone time was so much different all together! I didnít have to worry about anyone but me! What I wanted to do! Where I wanted to go!!! WOW!! Your pictures of your time alone are AMAZING!! So beautiful! Your pics from the Libery Belle are amazing!! I donít think Iíve been on that since I was a kid!


So I got ready and meet the other ladies at the pool! Of course, the way things were going I really needed a nice relaxing afternoon at the pool! I had such a nice time laying by the pool, or floating in the pool enjoy some relaxation! This is what this trip was about for me! Relaxing and having a great time with great friends!!

Now you all may remember MaryEllen and I mentioning my cell phone ringing numerous times the first night we were together! That seemed to be how this afternoon was supposed to go too!

DD called hysterical crying about flowers they had purchased and were planting at home! She was freaking out! I was 1000 miles away and couldnít do anything about it! UGH! I ended up calling DH on his cell phone, then getting a call back from DD and having to call DH again! I wasnít going to tell DH about the limo company because he has tendency to get really mad about stuff like that. But I was so annoyed and upset about the phone calls I told him and explained to him that they needed to knock it off and let me have a vacation!! I believe the ladies threatened to take my phone! LOL! I also believe I was tempted to throw it in the pool!!!!

MaryEllen, I love the picture of us in the pool! I also love that Iím laughing! Just shows what a fun trip it was!! I think it was that day that the kid was chasing the ducks! That annoyed me too!

Um, I donít remember drinking wine at the pool that day! But thatís my hand with the French manicure!

Wigd, I canít believe youíve never used the quiet pool! I LOVE that pool sooooooo much! I was so relaxing and wonderful!!! Of course, being without my kiddos not listening to other peoples kids screams was very relaxing! LOL!

C, your Epcot pictures are wonderful!!! You know I agree on the drink in MK thing!! Really! I could totally use a slushy after IASW or wait 45 minutes for Dumbo!

BTW, Iím a Rabbit! People born in the Year of the Rabbit are articulate, talented, and ambitious. They are virtuous, reserved, and have excellent taste. Rabbit people are admired, trusted, and are often financially lucky. They are fond of gossip but are tactful and generally kind. Rabbit people seldom lose their temper. They are clever at business and being conscientious, never back out of a contract. They would make good gamblers for they have the uncanny gift of choosing the right thing. However, they seldom gamble, as they are conservative and wise. They are most compatible with those born in the years of the Sheep, Pig, and Dog.

Some true. Some, not so much!

Anyway, BlueZoo!!! BlueZoo!!! How I loved that meal! I honestly had no recollection of the appetizer until tracy mentioned the Low Contry Shrimp and the fact that we ended up with 1 and not 2! I had Dirty South Swordfish for an entrťe! I believe Cynthia had the same thing! I was soooooo good! Soooo good! Probably one of the very best fish dinners Iíve ever had! Iím trying to work BlueZoo into our December trip because I think DH would really enjoy it! I did indeed order the 1st bottle of wine that evening! I believe it was Cake Bread, at Tracyís reccomendation! BTW, I have the picture of Tracy trying the absinthe! I took it with my phone!

I only took a few pics at BlueZoo. We had our own personal photographer in MEK. So I didn't need too! But I did take these;



Tracy, don't hate me for this but I love it;



Tracy's flaming desert;



That TIW card really did come in handy for that bill! @ bottles of really good wine, all that wonderful food, it was great to have a little help there! The spa coupon was great too!

Yes, after dinner Jen and I walked back to BCV. Yes, we did get hit on by 2 random convention guys who wanted to know ďHey ladies, what are you doing tonight?Ē Umm, yeah! It was a tad weird and a tad creepy! Like Jen said, we tried not to make eye contact and I think we walked a little faster after that!

That night was also the night that Osama Bin Laden was killed. I remember getting settled back in my room, putting on my PJís and turning on the TV and being amazed! I texted MaryEllen and we all, minus Jen, ended up in Christine and Tracyís room watching it on TV!

Upon getting back to my room I checked my account again to see if the charges from the limo company had been reversed. Guess what, they hadnít! Shocking! I decided since it was after 11 at that point there was nothing I could do, so I went to sleep! The next morning was Mandara Spa!! Woo hoo!

Yay!!! Melissa is back! That limo company drama was crazy. I assume you will not be using them for upcoming trips?

We did have a lovely afternoon at the pool and Bluezoo is definitely a winner. Already thinking about what to order in Oct!

Our pj party to watch the breaking Osama bin Laden news was fun. Great story to tell when the "where were you when" question comes up. Thank goodness you texted us to inform us. Tracy and I watch Stacy exclusively so we otherwise would never have known!!

I had a fun 4th of July weekend. Busy. Busy. I am still way too far behind on my Dis'ing

I run all the time, so its not a big deal. I was doing a lot of treadmill running before that trip, so I was a little bummed that I didn't have much energy.

Glad you like the pictures. I am glad I finally got a good bunch of mosaic pictures. Now maybe I will remember what that wall looks likes.

They are truly amazing and their is a whole story behind the mosaics. They talked a lot about it on the KTTK tour, but I can't begin to remember what our tour guide said.

It really IS a hard choice when time is limited. And as much as I would like a good morning of relaxation, I really needed to get back into the parks.

It WAS a fun lunch. I only took about 100 pictures before lunch, so bear with me.

I missed a lot of running when I was really sick, so I really was trying to ease back into it. It took me awhile to get back into it, but I have been doing really well this summer, so I am proud of myself.

I definitely think the trick is to go first thing in the morning. Or take the KTTK tour. Nobody gets in your way then!

I know the queue pictures that were already posted were really quite good. I don't have anything that tops those, but I did get a good inside pix.

It really was a beautiful day and I certainly did click away. I clicked and clicked and clicked.....well, you get the idea.

Glad you are enjoying!

Now, time to catch up on the other updates.
Thanks! And, you are so right - there IS nothing like that first glimpse of the castle. I will never, ever tire of it.

I know I shouldn't laugh, but I remember what it was like to finally go to the bathroom and not have someone pushing the door to open it. Or running in there hoping for just 30 seconds of peace before someone calls your name.

You will love having Ryan in preschool and he will love it, too. Well, maybe not at first, but eventually.

That's so terrible. I hope it starts improving really soon. I am sure the MRI is just a precaution. It's just going to take time for an injury like that to improve.

I was so relieved to not wake up with a headache. What a relief!

You definitely need to get there early to get pix of the mosaics. If you head there you will be in good shape.

I love this saying - a big purple box of happiness!!!!! That's great!

I forgot all about the credit card debacle. I am so glad you eventually got that straightened out. That was a crazy, crazy mistake. I think they owe you a free trip to the airport.

Love your pictures!

Lunch looks so yummy!

I originally forgot that was the same night, but then again I was a little "off" that night. I remember getting the text first from my son Brian. It all seemed surreal. I enjoyed our pajama party.

I think it was a wise choice, indeed! I know it can be heard to hold back those tears, because, to me, the castle is completely symbolic of my happy place. It's like stepping into a time and place where all is right with the world.

I use my refillable mugs all the time - take them to work etc. I have found they are better for cold than hot drinks. I use. The christmas one during December and now I'm using the summer beachy one!
I'm slowly replacing all my ceramic type mugs with Disney ones. My mom asked me to keep one other one for her because shed feel bad if she dropped a Disney mug and it broke! I said it would be fine, id just go back to WDW for another one!

Melissa - I am so sorry about the limo money stress and you kids pestering you! I would have Been mad at my DH for not telling them to leave me alone!

Such lovely castle pictures! Makes me just sigh...

That's the same piano player that we saw in 2004 when my DD was three and danced to the music!

Melissa, I am so sorry about all the limo drama. That is just wrong that the owner did not contact you immediately. I can certainly see it putting a damper on your trip.

Your MK photos are great!

Wow, what an awful limo story! They should've driven you to the parks every day after that one! Heck, forget that - you should've been in the MK afternoon parade, hanging out of the sun roof of one of their limos! I think that sounds fair, doesn't it??

Great MK pics Melissa! Wow at all the limo drama - def not something you want to happen whilst on vacation.

I would have lost my mind on that limo company! That owner would have gotten a big piece of my mind for not having personally returned my phone call with an apology! That is so rude! They should have given you some sort of discount or voucher or something! Service is obviously not their strong suit!

I'm glad you got to have a nice time at MK though! Your pictures are gorgeous!

I love the refillable mugs. they really are fun to use at home. And they make such a statement when out in public! I do love my ceramic mugs. That's all I use for coffee. That's all Denny and Brian use, too. They just look and feel better than any of my others.

Good thing Melissa IS OCD about her statement. If it were me it wouldn't have taken quite a bit longer until I figured it out.

I totally agree with you on both counts. That owner should have called her personally. No excuse!

You're not kidding. But, actually, this was the limo company up in Long Island that overcharged her. Thank goodness it didn't happen on both ends.

Still, I would love to see Melissa cruising down Main Street in a Limo. Perfect! Of course, her phone would be constantly ringing from the kids calling her. That might impact her waving ability a bit.

Awww - thanks. The castle just does that to me. I will never tire of its beauty. No worries about missing the update. This TR is a little all over the place.

That limo stuff was such a bummer for Melissa. So glad she got it straightened out.

I agree with you. They should have refunded her entire ride. That's ridiculous. Service recovery is really important in a situation like that.

Hey - I am noticing your ticker. I almost decided to go with a GF those dates, but I can't justify a third trip in 4 months. Bummer. Bad timing.
