Talking When Ducks Attack&Monorails Don't Work! A July '12 TR **new 3/17

Hello! Welcome to my trip report!

We were in WDW July 5th-12th and spent the week at the Contemporary Resort! It was hot, crowded, and there was a lot of walking, but it was a great trip and I can't wait to share it!

Who:
I'm Sarah, I'm going to be a junior in high school, and I am, obviously, obsessed with Disney- I've been 15 or 16 times. I've written a few Trip Reports, and I love writing them (:

Cinderella is my favorite princess, Peter Pan is my favorite hero, and Captain Hook and the Evil Queen are my favorite villains.
My favorite ride is RNRC or Expedition Everest. I love all the monorail resorts, I can't pick a favorite!

My brother John, he's a year younger than me and has been to Disney one less time than I have

His favorite ride is RNRC (or EE too). During the trip he spent his down time at the arcade and playing ping pong.

My other brother, Joe. He's 13 and has also been to Disney one less time than I have

His favorite ride is Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, but after this trip, he's got some new favorites too! During the trip he also spent his down time at the arcade and playing ping pong.

My Mom and Dad, they're the ones who make our Disney trips happen
My Dad loves riding the monorail, it's his favorite thing to do. He also likes sitting out on our room's balcony/patio and relaxing.


My Mom is the one who rides the thrill rides with us. She also likes sitting out on our room's balcony/patio and relaxing. Mom and I were the ones who did the shopping, and Disney shopping is the best!!


When: July 5th-July 12th 2012

Where: Disney's Contemporary Resort

Why: Because it's our summer vacation trip! We have Annual Passes (well, had, we didn't renew them after this trip) and needed to get one more trip before they expired!

OUR TRIP VIDEO!
It'll def give you some previews of what I'm going to be writing about in this Trip Report, and I'll probably be referring back to it throughout this TR.

I hope you join along and enjoy reading!

It's funny for the longest time I never even really knew what the Sum of All Thrills was about. I always thought it was like CyberSpace Mountain in DisneyQuest, but it looks much different. I'll definitely have to check it out now, though probably wouldn't go as intense as your brother did haha

to riding (and rebelling on) Mission: SPACE. And I love the reaction to Beverly your brother gave in the video though I think any reaction to that is funny haha. Still need to try it, maybe I'll be the first weirdo to like it lol

Can't wait to read more!

Great update!

My boys rode Sum of All Thrills for the first time on our trip and loved it!

Love Club Cool! The one from Israel is my favorite as well.

I've only ridden Sum of All Thrills once, and I was nervous so I didn't want to make it very intense. It turned out to be pretty eh so I just made funny faces, because the CMs have little monitors and can see your face while on the ride lol!

The Beverly isn't all that bad, it's just very bitter. I don't think it's gross, but it's not something I want to drink a glass of!

Thank you! The Israel one reminds me of Sprite and Sundrop/Mountain Dew combined, that's probably why it's my favorite!

Yeah, Get Off...

July 6th, 2012

It was finally time to grab some foreign lunch! I wanted Chinese, as I'm in LOVE with the fried rice they have at the Lotus Blossom Cafe. Johnny was feeling Mexican, so we split up. My dad and I went to China, while my mom stayed in Mexico with my brothers.

My dad and I both got the Shrimp Fried Rice with Egg Roll

It's what we always get, lol

Since I wasn't with them, I'm not totally sure what exactly they got to eat... and I can't really tell from the pictures oops

But looking at the menu, it looks like my mom got Tacos de Carne - smoked beef brisket tacos served on fresh handmade corn tortillas with Pico de Gallo, lime and corn tortilla chips


And I want to say Johnny got Empanadas de Queso - fresh corn masa (dough) filled with Chihuahua cheese topped with green sauce served with corn tortilla chips minus the green sauce


Joey wasn't hungry, so all he wanted was Churros con Cajeta - Churros with milk caramel

Interesting new design for the churros... last time we ate there they were just regular sticks!

After a yummy lunch, we met up halfway, in Norway!
We had all done everything we wanted to, so it was time to go back to the hotel for our afternoon rest.

I guess I found the Brazilian Tour Group interesting? Or irritating, either one


Guess we stopped here for something, probably a bathroom break





Off to the monorail! Finally!



We got on the monorail, it wasn't crowded so we were able to sit down! We were sitting there for about 10 minutes
This is our "Why are we still sitting here close the doors and take us home" face


Unfortunately, after 10-15 minutes of sitting on the monorail they came over the speaker and told us we'd have to get off because the monorail wasn't working and we'd have to take the bus to the Ticket and Transportation Center.

So we got off the monorail and walked towards the buses... and there's no bus to any of the monorail resorts at Epcot! So we had to get on the T&TC bus with everyone else- ended up standing again- and then once we got there we had to take the monorail full loop to the Contemporary.

It took about an hour to get back :/

Although, Johnny got some good shots while on the resort monorail!






Up Next: Poolside Fun!
