Thanks for the tidbit. We are staying at AKL for two nights and eating at Boma before moving over to the CSR, so I will look for the mug (I must have one!).

That's what I love about the February or March trips - finally seeing some green stuff and some brightly-colored flowers after bare trees and dead grass and slushy gray-brown snow on the sides of the road. We leave here in long pants and coats, and as soon as we get to our resort, we break out the warm weather clothes! It is really hard to come back from a spring break trip, though.

If you knew Jill's mother-in-law, you would understand that she could put a damper even on Disney magic. Jill says there will be very, very, very long nap times in the afternoons and early bedtimes. She is going to tell the reservation people to put 'in no way, shape, or form are we to have connecting rooms with our fellow travelers'.

I went over to walk through a desolate WS (love that private entrance!!) earlier in the morning. I headed over for a single rider spin on TT and then over to Mousegears to get some shopping out of the way. I bought some cute plates and maybe some cups for my OL.

I met up with C at the UK pavilion and then we headed over to the Welcome Center. We may or may not have stopped to get FP's for Soarin. I don't remember

We went to the Festival Welcome Center in the old Wonders of Life Pavilion. There were some cute things there but overall much less activity than the welcome center for F&W. I thought this living wall was pretty cool.

I picked up a Larry Dotson print here of the pub in the UK. I have about three from the AKL and I just love his prints

Now my pictures fail me but I think we walked back toward World Showcase and perhaps took the "long way" around past Mexico toward our lunch destination.

Yes we did....and there we were siting and Jen walked by eating caramel popcorn!!


Before we ate lunch I was excited to make my next purchase. I had warned Christine prior to not let me into Guerlain if I had too much to drink
Finally I bought my new perfume from Guerlain. I wanted this scent last October and they were sold out. Thank you for spraying me with it and then telling me you don't have it Sooooo, yes it was pricey but I had it in my head that I was going to buy it. So I did. And I it. It is called Elixir Charnel Gourmand Couquin Guerlain. Someone asked me last weekend what I was wearing and I have no idea what I said it certainly wasn't what I just typed!! It smells of dark chocolate, vanilla, rum, peppers...oh I just love it!!

Chefs was a first for me this trip. So happy to be eating there again in October because I loved it! I had French Onion soup and don't laugh but have never ordered it before. Not a fan of onions. But I figured this is France, they will use a lot of cheese and I can just eat the broth. Which is what I did!!! Loved it! I had the croque monsieur (ham and cheese) and THE BEST vanilla creme brulee for dessert.


ME...LOVE your pictures of TSI. So glad you were able to spend some time there. Absolutely beautiful pictures! All I remember from there is my brothers hiding in the caves and jumping out at me.

OKW19. It really was a great trip. I highly recommend it. I see you have an upcoming OKW trip. My DH & I are staying there in December. Can't wait. It will be my first time staying there.

WOOT! Sheree, I am so glad your SIL found....and how convenient to find it at AKL versus the park! That's awesome. Love that mug.

That's great Kathy. How convenient for you, too! I think that's a great location for the mug. I bet it's a popular item because it really is so different.

I bet it's hard to come back, but it does sound so perfect. I think I really need to try a Feb/March trip. So far I have been in May, June, August, September, November, December, and January. Oct, Feb, and March are on my list. April depending on Easter.

Oh My - she sounds like a lovely traveling companion. NOT! Poor Jill. It's probably even worse when she's not on vacation.

Step away from the perfume shop after drinking champagne. I can see that selling adult beverages must really work to the advantage of many of the shops. Well - you deserved to treat yourself. And you get to wear a little piece of Disney everyday. That's awesome.

Glad you like the TSI pictures. That must be a fun childhood memory. Those caves look creepy to me. I was not about to go in one of them alone.

Fun update Tracy! Sounds like you had a fun morning!

I put the same request in when I met my parents at Disney. The CM was like " Oh I can put you in connecting rooms" and I was like "NO". I ended up telling them same building, even same floor but NOT next door. they were down the hall a bit so it worked out. We didn't have to wait long for them ( Mom always is late, always) so I did not want the we got lost excuse.

My What a Big Lens You Have

Friday night... Gorgeous Evening. I am starting to regret that we don't have a summer vacation planned. I think I really need a little break. Oh Well. It is what it is and I am thankful for the vacations that I do have on the horizon. It would just be so nice to be cruising a boardwalk somewhere or sitting on a deck feeling the cool ocean breeze. Sigh!

So where did I leave off? Reorientation Time:
Sunday, May 1, 2011 10:30am Magic Kingdom. Day 4.

and I had just returned from a visit to TSI. My first visit to TSI since my first visit to Disney World in 2002. I remember it well. Hot summer day. We had already ridden and FP'd Space. I was the designated runner who scooped up Splash FP's while we were waiting to ride Space. IASW, HM, lunch and then grab a BTMRR FP. Ride Splash then cruise on over to TSI while the BTMRR comes due. Ahhhh - memories. That was such a great trip. I remember being exhausted by the time we finished BTMMR. I literally fell asleep on the train.

Well, I had used the same strategy today. I held my BTMRR FP while I cruised on over to TSI. Now I had about 5 minutes to kill until my FP time came due. What should I do???? I know - I ducked into that little gift shop right outside of Splash, found a vacant rocking chair, and chilled while I nonchalantly checked the time. I struck up a conversation with a nice lady who sat in the other rocker. But soon it was time to bid her adieu and ride the rockingest roller coaster in the west. This coaster never fails to disappoint. It feels way faster than it really is, its nice and long, and the scenery is great. Love it!

When I got off the ride I wondered over to POTC. I kept my camera tucked away the entire time. Yeah - I know - hard to believe. Try as I might I can never get one picture to turn out in POTC, so I figured why even bother. It was an enjoyable ride and I was glad I had the opportunity just to sit back and enjoy.

The dump shop was pretty crowded, so I went and found a seat outside.

I sat outside of this little counter service place across from Pirates. I can never remember the name, probably because it is rarely open when I visit.





I walked in the direction of Jungle Cruise next, but didn't really think I had time. I knew it was well after 11 and lunch was at 12:30. I figured if I gave myself an hour of travel time that should be more than enough. Hah!



The treehouse was tempting, but I was just too darn lazy to climb it.



I love the Southwestern to Old Key West theme in this part of the park:







Why is it that I am NEVER in the mood for a Dole Whip when I pass the stand?



Then I passed these seemingly ordinary people......Except the one on the right is a guy. OOOOOOO KKKKKKKKKK.



I cruised on out towards main street, figuring I had plenty of time to window shop.







Same thing with the corn dog nuggets - I am never hungry when I stroll by Casey's. Weird!



Check It Out..... Parade Time!





Obligatory Picture of Balloons. Can't go to MK without taking it.



I did stop in the Emporium and I found this adorable little skort....



I strolled across the street and entered another shop where I admired the art work.









I love this next picture and if I was a wealthy person I know exactly who I would buy this for......



I love the horses (although I find that fake facade on the building somewhat distracting).






Continued........

When I made my ressies for Sept trip with the GDs, the CM said that she could put us in connecting rooms. I very quickly said no! Same floor, same building, ok, but not connecting!!

I didn't wait at all for a monorail. In fact, I hopped on one that went directly to the TTC. I never went in the counter clockwise direction before, so that was a first for me.

Unfortunately, it was a bit of a wait for the Epcot monorail.

Coming in or Outward bound....?



Outward Bound. Bye Bye Monorail.



Here's Our Ride. That's More Like It!



There was one a young boy waiting beside me who was just thrilled to be riding the Tron-o-rail.



And before long I was back at Epcot, being greeted by none other than Lotso! And I didn't smell a thing.



and Buzz and Woody.....



and Spaceship earth....

















Hey Baby. Going My Way?







I stopped in Club Cool to see if they still had a flat Mickey, but I came up empty handed. Boo!

So I kept right on going. At this point I looked at the time and realized it already WAS 12:30. Oops. I took one more picture and put the camera away.



Of course, putting my camera away early caused me to miss a great photo-op. I hastily took this picture with my phone - boys in fairy wings? Go figure?



I picked up the pace and finally arrived at Les Chefs de France. I did some serious power walker and people dodging. Cynthia arrived right after me. We were seated immediately in a lovely table by the window. Yeah!

Our View.....



First things first......



Our waitress (Did Christine say we had a man?)



Sweet bubbly



Tracy eyeing up her glass



Cheers




It didn't take long for us to get our first visit from Remy. The maitre-d was hysterical. When Melissa got up to get a close up of Remy he suddenly stopped what he was doing and exclaimed, "Look paparazzi. Why - What a big Lens you have! Be Careful. You might hurt someone with that." It may not sound that funny now, but we were rolling then.







Continued.....

I hope Melissa did get some good pictures with that big lens, because I just couldn't get close enough.

Good pictures or not, his expressions were priceless.



So,what did we eat? Well, I was starting to feel like I was getting annoying with the camera, so I did not get pictures of all the apps and entrees. Here's what I did get.

Someone's lovely salad. It belongs to whoever drank wine and not champagne. (Cynthia, I think)



I had the french onion soup, which was divine.



I think Jen may have had this flatbread



For entrees Cynthia had this crepe



Jen had this scrumptious looking mac n cheese.



I had the very decadent grilled ham and cheese which was out of this world.



I took half of it home with me and ate it for breakfast one morning. It made a great breakfast sandwich.

I can't remember who had this lovely piece of chocolate cake.



I had the much raved about creme brulee, which was perfect.



Cynthia had this



I have no idea what it is, but it sure looks good.

So you can see that I only photographed the food for half the table. I think there may have been some duplicate orders.

I also took a few pictures of our surroundings.















I'm not really sure who went where right after lunch, but I do know that Cynthia and I left together. We made a couple quick stops before we returned to our room. Looks like we stopped in the wine store. Shocking, I know!







And look who we found in the gift shop.



Cynthia and I stopped for a photopass pix (taken with my camera)





Up Next.... A Birthday Surprise of Epic Proportions.

OH but I must have my jalepeno Pretzel to go with it...

I can't wait I can't wait, I can't WAIT!!! I really love seeing all of your photos, all of you taking some great pics of whatever you choose, and I really am beside myself with the idea of being able to meander during the day time! I have made a few late night fun runs to the parks after the boys were in bed, I have done that before, but never during the day time! I think you all look like you are having a fab fab time!!!! We always see Remy, he is toooo cute! Chef's for lunch is great!

Looks like you had a wonderful morning! Ahh the "never hungry when passing favorite snacks" thing ALWAYS happens to me! It's too bad that Dole Whips wouldn't transport well .

Your lunch at Chefs looks great! (Especially your creme brulee!)

I really think Chefs was one of my favorite meals of the trip. I think the Prix Fixe menu is a great value with so much food for ~$25. I had the onion soup, toasted ham & cheese and the chocolate cake. Too much food, almost!

I think I said previously that although we didnt have a waiter we still had fun but someone read quickly and thought we did. There is a new cute waiter spot for me and that is Via Napoli.

Amazing pictures, as always, MEK!!

Tracy- I think you are right, we did get FPs so we went Soarin after lunch and then I think back to the pool. It was a hot day!

Love your new perfume. Someday I might go into Guerlain and have them do a make up lesson or something. Isn't that one of the DVC perks? might be a fun and new way to pass some time and take a break from eating around the world in Oct.

The details I see in your pictures always amaze me! Looks and sounds like a great time at Les Chefs du France! One of these years I am going to have to book it for lunch because I am dying to have the sandwich you had. The Barefoot Contessa made it on the food network one day and when I realized they had it on the lunch menu...well I just have to have it

Thank you again for all your support....you have been so wonderful! I hope you have a wonderful weekend my friend
