Yes.

TSI was such a great way to end your park time.

What's for lunch, Mom?


Kathy
I love spending a couple of hours at MK before we hit the road. It makes us arrive later at our hotel that night, but who cares??

Woo-Hoo for MK! What a great way to spend the last day. I'm so glad you made it over to Tom Sawyer Island. My boys could stay there for hours as well! What a great place to explore and just be a kid!

MMMM....the Main Street Bakery! Good choice for on-the-road snacks!
Did I already mention that the CM said there used to be lots of Angel merchandise in the parks, but not anymore? You win a prize for already knowing about the girlfriend!

I'm glad you are going somewhere new for lunch. Hopefully that added some fun to the inevitable departure.

Stitch is so cute in his lei. I know he had a great time!
Tom Sawyer was definitely a great choice. The park was starting to get busy too, so TSI is a wonderful oasis from all of that.

The final installment is written. I'll be posting it sometime this week.

Fun pics from Tom Sawyer's Island! Stitch does look sad in that pic! I have to admit that I can recite most of the original Lilo & Stitch movie, but we own 4 of them but I've only seen parts of the other 3. My youngest 2 have both been on Lilo & Stitch kicks where that's all they wanted to watch. There was Lilo & Stitch, Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch has a Glitch, Leroy & Stitch and Stitch: The Movie. Not sure what order they came out in, that's the order they're sitting on the shelf, LOL.

Oh wow - there were four made?? Plus, there was/is a series on TV, right?

My girls really want to explore Tom Sawyers Island next trip, it's always been too hot to do it in August, looks like your boys had fun and what a good way to burn some energy before your drive home

I was stuck in that position and ... It took 4 strapping young boys to hoist me back on my feet
Personally, I'm a popper! I love me some black heads.

I think it might be a good place to go when it's hot - lots of shade!

Hey Cherie! I completely understand, trust me. Glad to see you stop by.

I think I'm more sad now than I was when we left. I'll talk about that in my final thoughts.

Part 4 - Fill Yo' Trunque with Pedro's Junque!

We made our way back over to the Polynesian and meandered around until we found Captain Cook’s. I was really excited to finally get the chance to try the infamous dole whip! After inquiring of the CM working the register how the whole process worked, I managed to get everyone’s meals ordered. My notes only say that Chuck and I had the flatbread pizza (which was very good) and the dole whip. Not sure what the boys had.





Chuck got the dole whip and let’s just say he went a big crazy with the portion size. I didn’t come close to finishing mine. But, that might be because I wasn’t all that impressed with it. Maybe I’d like the dole float more. I got a bit tired of the taste after a few bites. But, at least I can now say I’ve tried it!

Had to take a few pictures on the way out…





We headed to the van and officially left Walt Disney World around 1:30 p.m.

My notes for the drive home say, “2 headed donkey" and "van turned into a pickup truck.” I know I thought they were amusing at the time, but I don’t remember if it was a real donkey???

We also saw a really bad car accident on 95 south. Traffic was backed up forever. People were out of their cars and walking around. It was one of those moments where you’re so sad for the people in the accident and so glad you’re not the one stuck in the traffic.





This water just looked so unbelievably calm. Beautiful.





We ate dinner at a Wendy’s and made it to our hotel by 7:30. We took a quick swim in the indoor pool and then we all went to bed. Or tried to anyway. Our neighbors were VERY loud. And I’m a light sleeper. Even with our fan that Chuck went out to get from the van, I could still hear them (and by this time it was after 11). We also realized that we’d left behind my pillow in POR. Argh!! I know I probably could have called and checked about having it mailed back to me, but I didn’t bother.

I finally managed to get to sleep. Woke up bright and early the next day, ate our complimentary breakfast, and hit the road by 7:30.

We knew we were getting closer to home when we started seeing signs for South of the Border! I know this one isn’t very funny, but I kept trying to get a picture of a sign and was excited when I finally accomplished my task.



My favorite sign on the way home said, “Fill Yo' Trunque with Pedro’s Junque!” Really?

I have no more notes of our trip, but I know two events occurred that stuck in my mind. The first was a rock that hit our windshield and caused a crack.



A few weeks after returning home, we called our insurance company and were able to have someone come out and try to “repair” the crack for free. They fill it with resin in the hopes that it won’t crack any further. Well, let’s just say the crack has since grown.

The other big event was Owen began not feeling well. I think he was complaining his throat hurt. I thought maybe he was just getting a cold. We stopped for dinner at some fast food place and he ate a little bit. Got back in the van and there was lots of stopping and starting through northern Virginia. Finally, Owen began coughing and I knew instantly what it meant. Yup – car sick time. I grabbed a plastic bag I had with me and handed it back to him, but he didn’t open up the bag before he erupted. Chuck pulled over but it was an area with a guard rail and not really enough room. Very scary to be stopped there. I won’t go into details, but it was a mess to clean up. Thank goodness we weren’t too far from home!!

We made it home safely by early evening. Another successful trip completed.


Up Next – A Life Update

I had the Dole Whip float and really enjoyed it...I agree that I may not have liked just the soft serve as much. The pineapple juice really made it for me.

Oh..Poor Owen! I know that car sick feeling and it's NOT AT ALL FUN. Or for you either having to clean it up...UGH. Not a great way to end the trip, huh?

Looking forward to your recap and final thoughts...so what IS the big deal about staying on property? Are we going to get an answer??

I love pineapple juice. I think I would prefer pineapple juice over vanilla soft serve more.

He's our puker so I wasn't surprised.

Not impressed with the Dole Whip That is some kind of DIS boards blasphemy Personally, I really like it but can definitely see how a few bites would be enough if you didn't totally dig the flavor. It is very distinct. The float actually makes the whole thing sweeter so who knows if you'd like that.
Sorry about the carsick thing. I definitely know how that goes. My youngest gets car sick regularly and that DC area traffic brings it on like nothing else.
Looking forward to the final thoughts
