Post trip Report

Well we had a blast as usual. Flight out was a breeze. No issues which is always nice. Airport was a piece of cake. i really think MCO knows way more about luggage handling than any other place on earth. got there to our bags already on the belt. DS loved the first monorail.



On to SSR where we hoped we would be able to check in. Oh well, so on to MK where my DS was going crazy to get in to the parks.



Head through Main st and all he wants to do isgo in the castle. Lol. Poor kid, you cant go in the castle we say. So on to Laugh floor, he loved it, then to Buzz to shoot zurg. this ends up being his favorite ride by far, only after the raceway.





This made his day. Off to Tee cups which he also loves but I do not ride.



I leave that to DM and Dfil. Head to winnie and then to the new fantasy land. WOOOHOOOOOO.
So amazing to see all new work as its completed and it all looks great.


















Had to get him this stuff. He was soo good all day and he was beat ta this point.
Left from here and went to Philharmagic and small world. By far my least favorite ride at the parks. lol
Well now back to the SSR and to our room. Dinner at narcosees was good. thought as ill comment on in the rest of this update, i think the quality of dining at disney is going down due to the whole dining plan

Day 2
Dfil and i played golf at LBV and DS, DW, Dmil headed to Crystal palace and another am in the MK. Golf was good. LBV is very easy and short. Drove through too many fairways and left myself terrible chances at GIR's. but we had fun and there was no one playing. Strange to be on a disney course and not see anyone.
All meet back at the room to relax a bit then over to Epcot for the afternoon.



Well we bought one last year that he killed in about 2 hours and the same thing this year. I hate these stupid things.



Ride nemo, then head to the land as DS wants nothing to do with the aquarium, weird, and Dfil and Dmil ride soarin for the swap. We take DS on living with the land. About 3 min pre unboard from the ride, he starts the PP dance. Uh oh, hold it buddy, Then i feel my wet shorts, He couldnt make it.
Poor kid. Run to stroller and change hiim up. I was mad but oh well. Head to see figment and then on to the workds. Donalds boat was down, so on to norway. (I will commmment on all the food i sampled in another post).



Loved the maelstrom, especially the drop. Then on to play some drums.



And then we got stuck at the Trains for what seemed like a day. But hes a cutie so i couldnt resist.





then we worked our way out as we had resis at Artist point. Snapped some randoms on my way out.





Artist point was amazing as always. maybe my second fa restaurant in the parks. Back to the hotel for much needed rest.

3Rd day already
MGM as it will be forever named to me.



DisJr bfast and man this was a great decision. DS loved it. All his favorite shows and characters were here. Especially Jake (his halloween costume)



On to TS mania as it opened, No wait. Always fun. DS enjoyed it i think.



Headed over to muppets ride, then to great movie ride only long enough to wait for the dis jr show. Again, he loved it. Now on to Tower of terror ans RR. As DW and i were waiting to ride RR (i mean were next car to board) the ride went down. They issued us FP for it later that day but we hjust gave them away. t least Dfil and Dmil got to ride it. Incidentilly, 2 years ago when they went with us the same exact thing happend. ***. lol. So over to Tower. no issues and always love this ride.



Walk through some shops on way to Star tours.



Ds and i head to writers stop while everyone else rides star tours, i dont do well ont he ride so i pass. Have a mickey cookie, carrot cake cookie, and a cherry slushie. great dad and son time. This is going to be the starbucks location for MGM. there were Starbucks people along with imagineers in there taking pics with blueprints and what not. Head out to take a nap as we had the MNSSHP tonight and cali grill. Yum





Cali grill was perfect as always i feel. there may not be better sushi anywhere in disney and at least not anywhere ive eaten it.
Over to the party and what a blast this was.



Ds had a great time as did all of us. Did a few rides, Buzz


Racetrack, Winnie,



but honeslty its all about the candy.







great time adn some great pics of the new castle at night and my fav singers.

Day 4
Dfil and i played osprey ridge. This course is hard enough for resort golf fo the pins to not have to be placed in some insanely ridiculous placements. Shocked they want to make people play so badly. LOl
Did snap a photo of a new home in Golden oaks though.





DW and Dmil headed over to 1900 for bfast with the little guy and some MK time.
Regroup back at the room and head back to epcot. Same rotation as last time but we got to ride soarin this time. lol. Ill save the update and show pics.







Rode donalds boat then started in france and went counter clockwise this time.





Then DS saw this magnificent toy.


And no other toy mattered. Word of advice though. Buy extra bubbles.


Then back to the trains again. NP for me though.





And the FnW booths



then off to Chefs de France for a terrible dinner. maybe no where lese does the Failure of the dining plan show itself more than here. This has been one of my top 3 restaurants in Disney forever. But not that they are pushing upwards of 600 covers a night at least, the quality is terrible. The bread was just bad, not a baguette as was told, the food was edible, and the creme brulee was like a frozen pudding. Just sad for what used to be a good place to eat.
