Your epcot plans look good. Can't believe you have never been on Soarin'! It is about time. Can't wait for food and wine. I agree that you just have to snack around the world.

The mini09 tr made me so sad. So bittersweet to spend a weekend with your dad and then get on a plane to move home. I'm sure it was nice to share disney with him.

The MNSSHP part of your itinerary made me really happy!! I'm SO excited!!

We have a lot of the same F&W foods on our list, too! I've never been to LC either, so I really want to try the soup!!!

That picture of your dad with the train and SM in the back is FANTASTIC!!!

I think all those things are new for this year. I checked my pics from last year and we didn't get a churro in Mexico, if they had them we assuredly would have ordered it, Fran loves churros! We get them all the time in DL & DCA.

All the things you pictured are delicious, although I didn't care as much for the BBQ tenderloin, but the Fisherman's Pie and Chocolate Lava Cake...mmmmm

I know, I can't wait for F&W! That's one of the reasons we chose the first week of November for next year's trip I really can't wait to go, though. I wish we were going at the same time so we could enjoy something together Maybe next year!

We had a pretty good time, yeah. The car cracked me up, mostly because my dad is an eternal cheapskate. It still amazes me that he rented such an expensive car. I guess he figured it was just for the weekend or something. He loved driving it, though.

I think the only way I'm going to actually get him to go is if me and my BF get married down there. Then my dad won't have a choice!
We did have a good time, but I got really sad toward the end of the day It wound up being my dad who came down because my mom had visited around election day and he hadn't been down. My whole family likes theme parks, but I'm the Disney nut.

I'd love to get married at Disney I don't think that'll ever happen, but you never know I get what you mean, though My dad wouldn't have a choice, either

Well, every time I went to Epcot after it opened, it was already late in the day, so the FPs were gone and the wait time was ridiculous. So I just never got around to it. I'll do it this time, though I plan on snacking around the world, but just in case I'm hungry again late in the evening, I do have that stop at Casey's planned. If I don't use that credit, I can use it in the morning at Pop or something.

It was nice, yeah. Both my parents had come down to get me after my first CP, and we have some funny stories from that. My mom had just had foot surgery, so we were pushing her around in a wheelchair. At one point, we went on Rock N Roller Coaster. My dad and I are huge into music, and so he was pushing her and I was walking ahead. Then I went through the turnstile. Then he did. And my mom was sitting there in the chair going "What the heck?" My dad forgot her! But yeah, it was nice, but sad.

Wait until I post the update for the third party I found some more pictures! I'm really excited about it, too I can't wait to get down there!

I'm really kind of picky, but I'm trying to expand my palate a little on this trip. Baby steps I wonder if they have the pretzel bread at the booth, but if they don't, I can always run back to Germany and get a pretzel. I like pretzels and cheese

I really like that picture. Originally, I just got one of him with SM, but then I heard the train coming and was like "Wait a minute". It looks better in a larger size, but it's still nice in the small size.

Now he just has to see DAK After my first CP, my parents came down and we hit both DHS and Epcot in a day. We had a good weekend, but I do wish it had just been a visit on his part. Such is life, though, right? I'm trying to give myself pixie dust or something

I know the waffles from Belgium are new, and I want to say the fondue is as well. I actually only recently tried a churro, and was surprised by how good it was. My best friend and I were at Six Flags and she got one and let me try it. It was filled with chocolate, though, so that may have made a difference

I know, I've heard all about that from you Your recommendation is the reason the fisherman's pie is on my list!

I love your Day 4 II. Nice to know what I'll be doing on this day with you

And it definitely is bittersweet reading about your Dad and you 09 trip. Love the car and it's nice that your dad came all that way to take you home .

If you notice, I only have a few things listed that I want to do If there's something you want to do that I don't want to, I'll wait for you at the exit

Well, it was either going to be him or my mom, since one of them wanted to come down and get me instead of me either paying extra baggage fees or leaving half of my stuff in Orlando. But yeah, it was nice that he came down

Hey, it happens I'm just glad you're still reading I like doing the illustrated itinerary. It's fun It can be annoying trying to find some of the pics, but I usually find what I'm looking for The mini-TR was nice, once I finally found the pictures on my dad's computer.

So guess how many days I have left today?


If you don't get it, click here and read.

I'm three days late on my final payment, but I can make the payment today. I was going to do it online, as my paycheck is already in my bank account (yay direct deposit), but it wouldn't let me, so I'll just wait until the office opens and then call them and do it over the phone.

So onward to Day 5 of my illustrated itinerary!

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

I might sleep in this day, but I'm not sure. Probably not. I'm also not sure if PrincessInOz will be joining me for the morning of this day, but that's up to her Either way, I'm going to spend the morning here...



The first thing I want to do is go here and either get a FP or go on it, depending on the wait time:



I love this ride, it's so much fun

After that, the only things I really have on the list are as follows:









I did some fiddling on the reservations website a couple weeks ago and managed to get an earlier time for my lunch here:



So I'll be heading there for lunch at 11:45. I wanted an earlier time because I was worried that, with my previous 1:10 reservation, I wouldn't be hungry by dinnertime. This is one of the only two TS restaurants I've ever eaten at at WDW. The other one was Crystal Palace

I'm hoping to be finished with the five rides I want to go on after lunch I'm skipping the shows this time around, and won't be trying to see Fantasmic, as every night it shows is a MNSSHP night. But once I'm done with those rides, I'm going to hop on the bus and head here:



I really don't have a plan. Anything I haven't gotten to, I'll do, and I'll probably wind up going on rides I've already been on, like Haunted Mansion. At 4, I'll get my wristband for that night's MNSSHP. Around 5, I'm going to head over here to meet PrincessInOz and LuvChefMic for dinner before MNSSHP:



And by the time we're done with dinner, it'll almost be time for this!



Not sure what the plan is for the party, so I won't post too much about that. But we'll enjoy it

After the party, I'll head back to Pop to go to bed
