Relax boys, the belly dancer does not want your singles!

Tuesday May 12, Epcot!

The plan was to make ROPE DROP!!! It would be our first, or so we thought, one of the trip. Because K and T would catch the bus before us, they were going to call when they got on because we knew that would give us 3 minutes to get to our stop. Loved having an internal bus system of our own!

We all get up, get ready, and are raring to go when Keith calls…………..We hop the bus, arrive at Epcot, when lo and behold, it’s packed! Today Epcot had morning EMH and none of us knew. They make mad fun of me because somehow I was supposed to have the EMH memorized which seemed silly as they have all been WAY more times than I have but whatev, I’ll be the scapegoat for today.

We got in and charged over to Soarin’ to get FPs. And according to Keith, because I have no short term memory I made them ride Soarin’ as well. Made them ride, like it’s some great sacrifice to experience one of the coolest rides in all of WDW! We did Nemo, Crush, and SE. SE is amazing! It was closed during our last trip so this was our first time.

Some pictures.

Michael and Chloe in front of Nemo. Mine mine – mine mine:


Joshua and the back of Jon’s head:


A few from the Flower and Garden Festival which is absolutely amazing!

Ostrich:


Chip and Mrs. Potts:


Living the good life and the green life here on Spaceship Earth:


We have the flattest butts ever:



What I do remember is that my children official melted down today. Remember how I told you Michael was being kind of a park Gestapo? Well today was no different. We ate lunch in Mexico where this little butt head bird stole Gabby’s churro right out of her hand:



In Mexico having lunch:

Relax boys.................

Lunch was yum. I believe the others went to China to eat. After lunch smart Jenna decided to go back and swim but nooooooooooooooooooo, not us. Michael wanted to stay in WS so dammit that’s what we were going to do. Chloe and Joshua were beat but Keith came up with the idea of renting a stroller The kids thought this sounded marvelous. Good on paper, bad in practice. To not drudge up the entire cluster of a day but………..we got the stroller, got a Kim Possible walkie talkie thingy, and proceeded to have the worst day at Disney ever! We gave it the college try, had beers in Germany, frozen lemonades etc…but the kids were hammered. I thought we should go and suggested we go…………… After Gabby flipped out and Michael kept her out of American Adventure and Chloe deciding she had to pee minutes after American Adventure began, we finally decided to leave. Whew! It was a $35 mistake, that’s what the stroller cost, but thankfully it didn’t happen again and DH learned a little lesson and the lesson being: park commando does not fly with hot tired children. Never has, never will, heed my warning for those who are even thinking about it.

American Pavillion:


Doesn’t he look happy?


Lady and the Tramp:


No but really Michael, I think they can go on






As you see above the kids fell sound asleep on the bus back to the OKW. We got back and they snoozed. We all enjoyed a much needed rest. I believe Jenna et al went to the big pool during this time.

After our nap and a little cleaning up we headed back to Epcot for our much anticipated dinner at Restaurant Marrakesh. It was pouring. It was poncho pouring!

On the bus:

Relax boys.................

After a quick check in we were seated. I was a little disappointed with the interior of the place but the food was awesome. Apparently my love of a certain animal product is uncommon and even the master hunter Nate was disgusted. I will allow them to tell the story.

They could have done so much with the decore. It may have been because we were seated on the outside so to speak. We were not under the cool purple lights or near this hottie.

Relax boys, she does not want your singles:


A little food porn:






And some of us. Sorry some are blurry:















Here are some random ones from that beautiful night in Epcot. It was gorgeous!

With our slushies:


In Morocco:


Heaven:




Funny kids:





Speak no, see no evil, hear no evil:



The wonderful night totally made up for the hellish day. We did try to watch Illuminations but didn’t have a great view. I do have a few phone pictures that I will try to edit to make more clear.

Jenna and Keith will fill in the their parts soon, I am sure.

You didn't know about EMH!!! You must have hung your head in ocd vacation planners shame!

I think maybe you've brainwashed Michael a little too much and now he's a bit too enthusiastic about the parks.

Hot and tired children are cosmic revenge for anything we did as children. And thanks to my d.jay's youth, we get it pretty bad.

I'm imagining all sorts of meat parts that you could love.........personally I love bacon......

How did you like the food? We've loved it, and we arent' very adventurous eaters. Plus I've noticed that 90% of the servers are rather cute.

OMG.... I actually feel a little teary from looking at these pics. The missing Epcot and you guys just kicked in a little worse.

You forgot to mention how our menfolk rushed down to where the dancer was, practically tripping over themselves to "take pictures"! lol. Poor woman was probably terrified!

I am sure that my meat part is a delicacy in some parts of the world.

Food was excellent. I would eat there again. That reminds me, I did order my Marrakesh Express which was divine!

It's gum and I think the heat melted his frontal lobe.

Jenna and I were tossing around the THV early December 2010 for 7 nights. It's still not off the table.

I was surprised by how awesome the food was! I mean, I didn't expect to hate it or anything, but the menu didn't impress me online. What a nice surprise to find out how good it was!

Sounds like we need a poll: What meat part does Jenny love?



We did have crazy fun! I just cannot imagine Disney and you all not being there.

I agree, the food was really really good. Fresh.

Oh, I know you were all so proud to get to Epcot "early" ... how sad to know that you were all an hour behind...

You'll make rope drop one of these days! Actually, we plan to make rope drop for one day (max 2) on a 8 day trip...that's it.

Poor sad, tired kiddos.

Marrakesh pleasantly surprised me.

I love Tracy's description of the guys tumbling over themselves to get photos...those belly dancers are sure in shape ... I was impressed!

I don't think the fairy hangs around these parts. She's partial to the Community and Budget Boards.

The belly dancer was in great shape!


I used to be a rope drop junkie but no more.

Out of context it can be taken a few different ways.
