I remember Car 54, but I am not aged I am blessed. I still love riding in these car(smells and all). They bring back memories, the goal is not to hit the rail, unless a child is driving. Then the goal is survive the car jerks and bumps.

Looking forward to seeing your list!

I now CP is missing some essentials, but we will still let her DIS!

Poor CP... we love you!
Charles likes me just to tell him everything. He is an auditory learner apparently!

I am going to start my list tonight. It might be long.

Thank goodness I am still allowed to DIS! I wouldn't know what to do with my time.

I love you all, too, since you are the only ones that truly get my Disney obsession!

Dare I say it? Dare I utter the words? (Hanging head in shame).

We've never ridden the Tomorrowland Speedway either.

Going to add it to my list right now.

Ya think???
It's high time you started earning these:

If there's a size 1/2 in the letters, you might want to lower the admission of never having ridden the Speedway to that.

Step away from the Dole Whips and ride, woman!!!

I think she did not know what was going on. She got thrown on it at the last moment... DH said they could both fit so I ran her over to that ride...

Your list might be a dandy! I think this ride is on a lot of lists... it takes forever unless you get there super super quick!

I just posted it -- it wasn't nearly as bad as I had feared.

The kids always want to ride it, but when we walk past it, the line always seems huge!

Yes, I have sampled quite a bit of food and drink around the World.

Tuesday, June 23rd

This day is free until our 4ish ADR for Mama Melrose with the Fantasmic Dining Package. There are lots of scenarios I have in my head:


A- stay late at EPCOT on Monday and sleep in, pool time and head to HS late afternoon. Have dinner, catch a show/something quick and watch Fantasmic

B- go to MK Monday night, stay late, sleep in, pool, and head to HS late afternoon...dinner, show/something quick then Fantasmic

C-get up for RD and head to HS to ride TSM... not sure what else and then have an early rest/swim break before heading to dinner.

D- RD at AK do whatever we missed, want to do again, break/swim and then head to HS for dinner and Fantasmic.

To be honest I doubt we decide this before Monday night.

*****I say sleep in, but we don't really sleep in, ever, especially at WDW. My kids move quick to see the Mouse and friends.

My ticker is a day off, too, but I can't bear the thought of sending Tink back to the start.

We've never done the Speedway either, but your family looks like they're enjoying it. I'll have to look at my ticker after this post. Today should be 30 days for us. We started our countdown calendar today.

WOW 1 month! I get to say that on Wednesday! I would vote for sleeping in too but maybe just a relaxing day at the resort would be good too? I was laughing when you put you were looking forward to Indy Speedway! I DESPISE that ride. I am alone in my hatred though because the boys LOVE it and I cannot understand why Matthew can ride alone thank goodness which means Bryan can ride with Eric and I can just wait!!

Okay, Okay, so she likes to eat and drink her way around the World, that is not a crime, people! As I mentioned before, CP, we were still looking forward to a drink list, and it does "seem" that you have some experience with the selections.... why, just a few days ago you were talking about a Yak and Yeti and, an Avalanche (wait... was that LL?) slushies, and.. and... So Where is THAT list?!?!? Will be looking for it on your PTR since you now have ALL this time being out of school!

AND I have never been on the Speedway, either. So I read in the UG it is a DUMBO is disguise... meaning cars instead of elephants, and you should treat it the same way -- get on it first! IT is on our list, for sure!

Okay, back to reading. You ladies have been a tizzy of DIS-ing these past 72 hours!!!!

I think the TBA strategy is the best! We built this in for the trip a few times. I am glad we are, because you are right, you never know and it is good to have options!

I had to change my ticker too, it was driving me nuts. My ticker must be accurate.

I am going to do my list today and include it in an update.
