TT is one I have yet to get my DDs on. In 2006 I was going to ride the single-rider line and it broke down. Seems not much has changed with that ride . I'm crossing my fingers very tightly that I can get them on it this trip, if not it will have to wait until next year when daddy comes along and they feel safer with him than with me.

Hunter absolutely loves Test Track and has been riding it every since he was tall enough to do so. See if you can talk them into riding. I think they'll like it.

Yeah! Nat! I'm glad I'm somebody's hero. I honestly don't know if I could do the whole surprise trip again.

I agree about the tomato tree in the backyard. I was watering our little garden last night and counting the few tomatoes we have on the plants. Grand total 11! Man are we really going to be eating tomatoes this year.

I expect to have more of my Epcot day posted later today. We get stuck on Test Track!
My Dh is like that too. He seems like its a chore to go but tells everyone else how great it is and what deal it is to have the dining plan.

My kids love it too. Have you ever taken the Behind the Seeds Tour? It's a really cheap tour. I think it was less than $15.00 each. They take you up close to everything and we got to sample the Mickey shaped cucumbers too.

My DH and DD did this our past trip and really enjoyed it and I enjoyed some time alone.


I love the gotta pee on the ride. I can tell you where the bathroom is too becuase Claire had to go bad as well when we got off and we made the mad dash, of course in all her pee pain she still noticed a toy she wanted as we walked though the gift shop and talked no stop about it till we went back and got it. LOL!

John really does Disney World but I guess he thinks I talk about it too much so he doesn't ever really express any of his love with me. But, he does like to talk to everybody else about it.

Claire has an eagle eye if she can spot a toy even while in "I gotta pee" mode.

What a great TR. Your DS must have been so excited about the surprise. I hope that my DS ends up loving Disney that much as he gets older.

Thanks for the pictures of the CBR food court - we are staying there for the first time in September and I can't wait.

If I didn't have John around, I do believe that Hunter and I could make it to rope drop every day. They say that women take a long time to get ready, well, they haven't seen John! It's not that he primps and preens, he's just God awful slow!

Hunter and Lacey have grown up going to Disney. Hunter especially since he was just 1 on our first trip. Lacey had just turned 11 on our first trip. If it is Disney related, we love it!

I have more pictures of the CBR that I'll post later on in the report. It's an absolutely gorgeous resort.


I hope to get the next part of our Epcot day posted while I am on my lunch hour.

So, when I left off, I was running to a bathroom and leaving John and Hunter in my dust. I didn't, literally, run but I sure did some power walking to make it to the nearest bathroom. What was wrong with these crowds? Why aren't they moving outta my way? Don't they know I gotta go? I get to the bathroom and there's a short line. Of course! But, it did move very quickly and I was able to finally make it into a bathroom stall. Disaster diverted! (For now...hint, hint, hint)

I called John on his cell phone and he and Hunter had done the wise thing and simply waited for me at the Text Track exit. I made my way back to Test Track and when I spotted them, I could see them laughing still. Stupid heads!

Even though our tummies were rumbling, we decided that, since we were really near Ellen's Universe of Energy, we'd go there before eating. Does no one take this path to Ellen's?


After laughing at Ellen's antics, we finally make our way over to the Electric Umbrella. I can't remember what John and Hunter ordered but I know it couldn't have been anything super extraordinary because, well, it was the Electric Umbrella. I ordered a cheeseburger meal. It was tasty until.......

Now, I told you guys that I had diverted one disaster but you'll also remember that I gave a "hint, hint, hint". Here it comes.....

We're eating our food and talking about heading over to World Showcase when I feel a pop in my mouth and I hear a "ding, ding, ding". Holy Smokes! My temporary crown had fallen out of my mouth and onto the table! I immediately drop my burger and grab for the tooth which is bouncing it's way across the table. What is this? A grasshopper crown?

I had been to the dentist three times already to get a new crown made and the temporary had already fallen out twice. From what the dentist told me, temporaries are always falling out. I asked him what to do if it fell out while at WDW and he laughed and said hopefully it won't but "I hope you pack some super glue." Thank goodness, I really did and it was in the backpack we brought to the park.

John and Hunter are looking at me all crazy like and ask me what I am doing. I hold out my hand and they see a tooth! "Where did that come from?" they asked. "Where the fart do you think it came from?" I shrieked. Then they started giggling and then they started laughing. I mean almost hysterically laughing. Why would my loving family start laughing at me in my time of need? Because the temporary crown was my front tooth! I now had a gapping hole in my smile with just a wire sticking out of my gums. Right now, I am laughing too but I wasn't laughing when I had a tooth in my hand and I'm sitting in the middle of Epcot.

I pick up the backpack and start digging around for my super glue and the trusty ziplock bags I always pack. After putting the tooth in the ziplock bag, I keep digging for the super glue. Don't tell me I didn't put it in the backpack. Just when I was at the point of pouring the entire contents of the backpack on the floor and scrambling around in front of everybody, I found it.

While John and Hunter wiped their eyes, I made my way to the bathroom. Who needs a stinking ole dentist anyway? Who needs my family? I can do this myself. After I get to the bathroom, I realize that I didn't bring in my little mirror and I would have to stand in front of the big bathroom mirror if I didn't go back and get the backpack. I made my way out of the bathroom back to the still laughing fartheads, a/k/a John and Hunter, and went back to the bathroom with my compact. After spending a few minutes sitting on the toilet and balancing the compact on the tissue holder, I got the tooth reattached and it looked quite professional, if I do say so myself.

Head held high, I go back to the table and smile really big! No gapping hole any more. John and Hunter attempt to apologize but they kept stiffling a grin. By this time, too, I was getting a bit giggly too and all was fine and dandy once again.

(For those of you who are concerned about my putting super glue in my mouth, I really did ask the dentist if it would be okay. He said it wouldn't be the best of things to do but I could do it and it'd be okay until I got back home.)

Next up, our walk around World Showcase in search of a sword.

I'm cracking up over here! Too funny! Love the way you told this, priceless!

You should really think about renaming your TR: Lost my grin in EPCOT or All I want from Epcot is one of my two front teeth!

Hey renaming the thread is a good thought. I swear, if anything out of the ordinary can happen, it's gonna happen to me! I spoke to John during my lunch hour and told him about my update. He started laughing all over again.

Come on now!!!! Where's the picture???
It's nice that you and your family have such a good sense of humor!

One time my whole family (my parents, my brother & his wife, and Shawn - before babies) went to Disney World. There were too many of us so I was sitting in the back of our SUV on the way to MGM. Well someone cut us off in the parking lot... so when we finally parked everyone jumped out to see who the idiot was. Well they totally forgot about me!! I needed help to get out of the back of SUV since the door didn't open from the inside. I started laughing so hard... until a few minutes had passed and they still hadn't come back. The laughter slowly turned into tears... not sure really why... I thought it was funny - but something about being locked in a car at Disney World seemed tragic. It was then that I knew how all of those poor little dogs felt. About 5 minutes later they all came back laughing...

Oh, I forgot to mention that, while I was in the bathroom trying to reattach my temporary, the automatic toilet flushed two times. I got a little sprinkling of water on my tushy but I didn't care 'cause I had my grin back.
