Believe it or not, LL, I did not head over to Ebay after all last night. However, I am still hearing the siren call of the Buy It Now so it is just a matter of time. LOL!

Aaaah I love it too! I want one.

AGREED! I totally LOVED having a car last time and now I can't imagine going without one.

Your pictures of Remy are soooo cute! I want to reach through my computer screen and hug him. I heard that he is already gone from WDW I hope I heard wrong!!

I can't believe you lost a pin and then found it hours later stuck in the bottom of your croc. That's crazy!

YUM, I had one of these too, at AKL! Loved it, especially the multi-colored glowcube.
Blood sausage I do NOT love, ick. I accidentally ate some when I was in Ireland last year because I did not know what it was....I didn't realize they serve it at Rose & Crown, oh well it's authentic I guess!

And one more thing....WOOOO!!!!!!!

Day 2

Yay I love the manatee photos! That's my absolute favorite part of the Living Seas. I am intruiged to see the pictures of Kringle, the new manatee - I miss Boc but I'm sure Kringle is sweet too I can't believe he weighs barely a third of Lou - he doesn't look like it! I guess Boc had become well enough to be released into the wild - Lou may never be able to since his tail is so messed up You got some really cute pictures of them eating - I love catching them when they're having a snack!

Aw I'm sorry you got so overwhelmed this afternoon....I totally understand, getting upset at WDW is the worst because then you start to feel guilty about being unhappy in the happiest place on earth and get MORE upset (that's how it works with me anyway!). I am sure those amazing cream cheese mashed potatoes made you feel a bit better....I would love some of those right now!

Tinkerbell kept asking, "But, how did you meet?" But eventually she gave up. We kept repeating that we were friends, then we told Tink that we met on the Internet. Blank Look. Then we get to Rosetta. Oooh, Rosetta. She was a little vicious, let me tell you. Which was sad because Jen & I had decided before this trip that she was our favorite! So we were super excited to see her. It didn't last. She would not let our polite answers go, she kept asking us and asking us. She was even asking the photopass photographer why we weren't giving her the "right" answer. We finally said we met on an internet message board and that shut her up.
That is so weird! I wonder why they gave you such a hard time. What was the 'right' answer supposed to be? Kind of reminds me when I met Alice in Epcot and she asked me where I had found a purse with her face on it and I said "ebay" and she asked me if that was in Wonderland

What a gorgeous rainbow you found in Fantasyland!! Truly magical.

LL, I am all caught up. It is amazing how far behind you can get when you aren't able to dis for a week. I had a whole reply typed up and it disapeared. So here is what I remember, that pretzel looks really yummy, I love the HM pictures, I also am sorry that your feet were hurting you. The pictures of the rainbow are really cool. I am looking forward to see who you see next.

How cool is that!! Oh I will post pins!

No, pin buying is an expensive habit. I love getting traders off of ebay, so much cheaper that way.

I must have never been when they were operating one tram then, I didn't even know they did that.

I have seen both the ganster and cowboy but DH has only seen the cowboy. I didnt realize they switched out, I just thought they had changed it from the previous year.
Hehehe, that is funny!

Actually, there's a special card that allows you to photograph anything and everything in the stores that you want to.

I'll send you one, as soon as I make it up.

I can't recall a CM ever saying anything to me anywhere, unless maybe I have forgotten. (I'm kinda old, you know.) Usually they move to the side for me to photograph if they feel like they are in the way, even though they are normally not in the way.
I am patiently waiting for my special card!

You got some great photos in DHS. I've yet to ride the GMR. Not sure why? I guess something had to get cut.

I'm pretty sure that if we wouldn't have been there before rope drop we'd have completely missed Bo. He's a lot closer to the entrance than I'd imagined.

Can't wait to see what pins you got!
You must make time for GMR! It's wonderful.

Bo is very close to the entrance!

Phew! You really caught up! I'm really contemplating driving down the next time Marc & I go together. I really liked having a car, gave you so much more freedom and time.

I don't know what the fairies problem was! It was a little annoying. It was like drop it already! Geez.

A Practically Perfect Meal.

Monday May 25th. Day 4, Part 2.

We made our way into the Animation building...I don't know the technical term. We had a date with...MICKEY!

If you can believe, I have never had my picture taken with him and this was my SIXTH trip. Mom claims that I did meet him when I was 5 but we can't find proof of it. I don't trust her memory as she is the one who buys the same book twice to read. No joke. It worries me.

Mickey was out and we also saw the characters from Up! We decided to get into Mickey's line first since he was the MUST DO.

It was a pretty short line and before we knew it we were saying hello to the Mickster.



Mission accomplished.

We went over to hop into the Up line and waited a bit before the CM came out to say one of them was leaving but one would be staying. I was iffy, I figured I would be back so we decided to move on. We took some pictures of them though.



How cute are they? I still haven't gone to see this. I need too. He really reminds me of my grandpa, especially with those tennis balls on his cane. Hehe!

I also took a few pictures of the stills they had around.




We decided to see what character we were most like...

Jen was like...


I was like...


BOO! Just because you like to eat people for lunch....

We started to head out, there were no other characters out. They had a bunch of artwork from Snow White out. I think they are gearing up for the Snow White DVD release in November. I am really hoping they do a special greeting area for Snow White like they did with Pinocchio and I hope they do it while I am there.





We headed out towards Hollywood Brown Derby as it was getting close to our ADR time. Jen wanted to go check out the Villain shop, I decided to sit on one of the benches outside Brown Derby to rest my feet. I took pictures while I waited.





Soon enough Jen was back and we went inside to see if we could check in yet. We were able to check in but it wasn't quite time for Brown Derby to open.

I went and spotted the book of signatures of those famous people who have eaten at Brown Derby. I squealed when I saw who it was and started to babble so fast that Jen couldn't understand me.



JULIE ANDREWS! It was like the Brown Derby KNEW I was coming for lunch!

I was in heaven, my beloved Brown Derby, Julie Andrews and Jen. Ahhhh.

Pretty soon the Brown Derby staff assembled and they let a little girl celebrating her 4th Birthday open up the dining room. It's so nice that Disney does these little touches. The little girl looked so happy being singled out and fussed over.

Shortly afterwards we were escorted to the dining room to a booth! This was the high life. I think this was the meal I had been most looking forward to and it did not disappoint.





I'm a little upset that we didn't think to get a picture of the both of us in the booth!

We both ordered root beer and started noshing on those delicious Brown Derby rolls.

We both started with the Sweet Zellwood Corn Chowder- with applewood smoked bacon and ancho chili oil. Jen asked how spicy the ancho chili oil was and the waitress said it was pretty spicy, we both asked of it left off. It was delicious! Superb! If I didn't want to try all of the Brown Derby appetizers, I would be ordering this again in September.



It is so hard to get pictures in there, you feel like you are in a classy place and the last thing you want is your camera flash going off!

For our entree we both ordered the Famous Cobb Salad of course. Even better then I remembered. Sigh.



The only thing we differed from at this meal was dessert. Jen of course continued her creme brulee love affair. She loved it, but she doesn't have a favorite. They are all amazing and make her happy.



I decided to go with Grand Marnier Strawberry Cheesecake.



Oh. My. It was seriously good. I have to say that it has become my favorite Disney Dessert. I can't wait to enjoy this again in September. I can't tell you how rich the cheesecake was and how delicious the strawberries were. Yummmmmmm.

Truly, a delightful meal at Brown Derby. It was a little bittersweet though, I was sad that Jen would be leaving soon. We had such a great a time together despite the rain and feet problems. I have found a friend for life in her and the fact that our love of Disney brought us together make Disney even more special in my eyes.

As our meal was coming to an end, I went to the restroom. It was the scariest trip to the restroom I have ever had. I was witness to the most HORRIFIC parenting skills EVER. It was horrible. I don't want to go into too many details nor do I want to criticize parenting skills but when you threaten violence to your sobbing children and are pushing them against bathrooms stalls. It was truly awful and I was cowering in my stall. Not such a Disney moment.

I shook off the bad vibes and met back up with Jen in the lobby. She decided that she did want to stay until our TSM fastpasses were due. She had been waffling between going to see the Muppets or riding The Great Movie Ride again. I told her to decide because I was planning on staying in the park after she left so I could hit up what I wanted later.

She picked The Great Movie Ride with the logic that she would be back in September and could meet up with the Muppets then. I like that logic!

We waited in a fairly short line...maybe 10 or 15 minutes. We even saw our CM from earlier at the door ushering people inside the building. Before we knew it, we were loading up on our tram. The first tram...and there was a second tram behind us. YEP! We had the cowboy scene. It was the right decision! Jen finally knew that the cowboy did exist and wasn't a Disney myth! We didn't take any pictures this time around...we just enjoyed the show.

After GMR, it was time for TSM. We made a quick pit stop over to the Voyage of the Little Mermaid so I could grab a fastpass for later and headed to TSM.



We had a fabulous ride on Toy Story Mania. I giggle like a little kid on that ride, so much fun.



Jen beat me, but I am happy to report that last time I received a bunny as a prize and I know the beaver is a higher score so YAY for improvement!

After our great ride, it was time for Jen to leave. We said our goodbyes and I watched her walk from Pixar Place. It was hard saying goodbye, who knew when we would see each other again!

Now that I was alone...what would I do?

Geez, I mean, you just like people for lunch what's the harm in that?!

Your lunch looks delish and I want Disney food ASAP!

I hate to comment on parenting choices because believe me I've been pushed to the edge, but when it becomes physical it's too much for me. Sorry you had to witness that.

So sad to see Jen go, but excited to hear about your solo time.

That salad looks great. I hope someday my kids can behave and we can dine at The Brown Derby. Sorry about the poor parenting... it does make you feel uncomfortable.

Oh my. I have a serious hankering for Brown Derby now. I wonder if they would think me odd if I ordered all of the desserts for my meal?

And here we all were falling all over ourselves trying to convince Jen that the cowboy wasn't a myth -- and she knew all along.

So sad that Jen had to leave!

That is so cool the Up characters were out when you were at the Animation Building! I definitely want to meet them. As for the movie, we finally saw it...it's really cute.

I can't believe that you had never had your pic taken with Mickey!! And I actually laughed outloud about the comment you made about your Mom swearing you had when you were 5...too funny!!!

Your lunch at Brown Derby looks delish!!! It's almost 11 p.m and now I'm starved...thanks, LL!! LOL!! That poor child in the restroom...no one deserves that and my kids have truly tested my patience from time to time....how sad!!! Love the light fixture that looks like a derby, how cool!!!!

I can't believe this is it for Jen's portion of the trip but I'm excited to 'meet' your Mom and hear that portion of your trip, too!!!!
