Thanks gals. Do you think more than true DIS'ers would "get it"? Even if it was only meaningful to DIS diehards that would be ok. Oh lord, I can see the pictures now. I'd better start a regimine of lunges/squats if I'm going to be wearing a mini and rocking those yellow tights!

Yuck to smoking in general and especially in line. I always make it a point to cough really obnoxiously when I walk past a smoker and inhale their second hand smoke.

Your poor feet!
The line did move quickly, I find that most lines move pretty quickly at Disney.

No there wasn't something above Jen's head. I think it's so funny the way they cut out faces.

I think it would be a great costume!

Epcot Overdose. Part 2.

We left off with a little less than two hours to go until our Le Cellier ADR. I was cranky and trying not to bring Jen down with my crankiness. We decided to make our way over to World Showcase and ride the Mexico ride.








I love how each park had a balloon of their "icon".










Jen pointed out this amazing light fixture as we were walking toward the Gran Fiesta..is that what it is called? I think this is one of my top 10 light fixtures of the trip. Just gorgeous!


Still disturbed by the Donald Pinata.





After our ride we sat down on a bench, I needed a nice cool rest. We talked about our plans. I was contemplating not going to Animal Kingdom, I was tired and needed a rest. I was overtired and cranky. I didn't want to bring Jen down though so I just mentioned it briefly and said I would keep thinking about it. I was too cranky and tired to even get school bread. I don't know what was bringing me down but I was on Epcot Overload and the more overloaded I got the more sad I became because I didn't want any of the short time I had with Jen tainted with crankiness!

We decided to slowly head over to Canada and perhaps check in early. We stopped along the way to get a beautiful monorail picture.

While I waited for my perfect monorail shot, Jen was on bird patrol. We also discussed my fear of birds. It's ironic because I love sitting at my desk at home staring out the window at my goldfinches and hummingbirds, just don't come inside my house and I'm good.













We waited a LONG time for those perfect shots! We kept hearing Test Track and thought it was the monorail everytime. We kept laughing at ourselves after awhile cause we would do a little jump everytime we thought it was coming. It probably took a good 20 minutes or so for it to come back around.

We kept meandering over to Canada and we saw a photopass CM over by the gardens in Canada. I think the actually photopass ones are better but you get the idea of these ones from Jen's camera.





The photo CM kinda made a snarky comment about the design on our tshirts. She said that she met the artist of it and that did we know she doesn't make a penny from the use of her design. She made me feel bad and I was in Disney. I don't think she intended too, I just have this little flaw where I think people are attacking me all the time.







At this point it was about 1:20PM, our ADR was for 1:50PM but we decided to see if we could at least check in early and sit on the bench in the AC. We were still planning on trying to make the 3:30 Finding Nemo show at Animal Kingdom.

Jen went up to the podium, the CM was having a hard time with his computer so he sent us inside. Inside, I gave my name to the CM. She couldn't find me. I spelled my name out since sometimes they spell it completely wrong.

When she still couldn't find me, I pulled out my itinerary with the confirmation numbers on it. I glanced down to the Le Cellier ADR and my heart fell down to my toes. Our ADR wasn't for 1:50PM, it was for 12:50PM.....WE WERE THIRTY MINUTES LATE!

Oh No, 30 minutes late FOR your ADR and of all places Le Cellier. I hope you got some Disney magic.

I love the pictures in the parks for the Celebration theme. I cant wait to see it all and get my new mug in August.

Cant wait for the next episode, you left us hanging.

This foot pain seems to be causing some major problems........how is it now that you are home?

Even with your Epcot overload you managed some great pictures, the monorail pictures were awesome!

Yes, it did not help my Epcot Overdose AT ALL.
They were worth the wait. I have one of them as my desktop background at work. I love looking at it.

Marc lives in fear that when we have a house I will spend lots of $$ on light fixtures. I told him that is an absolute guarentee!

I totally blocked out the duck the waiter reveals. Why oh why would they do that!?!

I seriously wanted to pass out. I can't even tell you how horrible I was feeling. I didn't want to disappoint Jen!

The foot pain was ridiculous the entire trip. It wasn't my heel from my plantar fascitis either, it was the stupid blisters on the part of my feet underneath my toes, what is that part called? They were horrible. They are doing better now, still healing a bit.

I bet that your foot pain wasn't helping any with your crankiness. On my last trip I was stupid enough to wear my poor, no cushioning keds the day I went on my Segway tour, and paid for it the rest of the day. Seriously, there were points in the day that I just wanted to burst out crying, and I was battling the crankiness something terrible. All I could think of was my poor miserable feet. Come to think about it, that was our Le Cellier night, when we had to wait over 45 minutes for our ADR. Luckily after sitting through dinner they felt much better, but until then I was so miserable.

Me and sore feet just don't agree with each other.

I feel the same way about foot pain, it really really makes me cranky. This day wasn't super bad but I was feeling very discouraged. I kept thinking this is my first full day and I'm this miserable, how is the rest of the week going to go? I also started to walk in a way to compensate for my blisters which just starts to make other parts of your feet, legs and even hips start to hurt. Sigh. Next trip I will have a comprehensive foot/blister/shoe plan.

Okay okay are you going to seriously leave that trailer....

Well, this past Nov I totally mixed up my ADR for Sci Fi and they were able to squeeze us in, so I am HOPING the CM did some disney magic for you...

Hoping... hoping...

BUT while I wait (cough, cough) and hope, and hope, and wait (cough, cough) I must say that I LOVE the pictures you shared. I have NEVER been inside the pavillions, only on the outside when we walked the WShowcase in the past -- I never knew there was more there!!!! Can you believe that?!? I had only been in Morocco and Germany... I am going to experience a lot of the WS @ Epcot for the first time, really, this trip!!! So your photos have been a treat.

Anyway, still waiting... (cough, cough, cough, cough, cough......)
