LOVE all the food and wine pics! Though I do have to say, as blasphemous as it sounds, I'm not sure I will be ready for F&W next year... I mean, Jack's not exactly the walk around and sample foods kid... maybe we will wait for a few years till my parents want to go, because I know they will love it. I am not a seafood eater at all though... but all the desserts look lovely! I am so getting a caramel apple!!!

Great updates! The F&W festival makes me so happy. Just seeing the booths makes me giddy. Definitely my favorite time to go.

I can't believe you haven't done Soarin before this trip! I LOVE Soarin, I have to do it as many times as possible!
I really enjoyed the F&W festival, and I'm looking forward to next year to do more of the booths that I missed this year

Honestly, every time I went to Epcot when I was a CM, it was usually to go on Maelstrom or have dinner or something. The signs always said the FPs were gone and the wait was outrageous, which was why I never did it. But I did like it

Yeah, the caramel store opened in early October, I think Or late September. One or the other. It was awesome, though!

Glad you liked Pooh getting stuffed in the statue's mouth I just couldn't help it. I watched Winnie the Pooh way too much as a kid and was like "Hey, it's like he's stuck in Rabbit's door!"

That F&W festival food looks so amazing! I will never forgive myself for being at Epcot in 2007 during the F&W festival and NOT SAMPLING A SINGLE THING. Shame on me and my lack of Disney knowledge!

I love that Sharon is adding pics to your TR! I like getting to see what you were up to along with what your were seeing from behind your camera!

O.M.G. I have to get to that caramel place NOW. I remember when you texted me that picture of the caramel apple I almost dropped dead from jealousy. I am definitely going there in December!
I really like the F&W festival. When I explain it to my family, I have to keep referring to it as "an international Taste", as in the Taste of Chicago. That got my dad interested in it, especially when I showed him the list of what they were offering this year And hey, I never did it while I was a CM! At the Taste, you have to have tickets, which I thought was the case with F&W. I had to explain that to my parents as well.

I love that, too! Thank you, Sharon! I have very few pictures that have me in them that aren't on Photopass, so it's nice to have those, too Plus, she's a good photographer, so I actually look pretty in some of them

The caramel place is AWESOME. Apparently, they sell out of the strawberries very early, so if you want one of those, get there early.

You know what? That's totally understandable. If it doesn't work for you guys, then don't do it I think my parents would love it, too, which is why I want the reunion to happen while it's still ongoing, but everyone wants me to move it to a different week (and they all have different weeks that would work best). Bleh.

But yeah, the desserts were awesome! I'm not a seafood eater either, but the fisherman's pie was good. The caramel apple was fabulous! I want another one! I wonder if melting down Werther's caramels and coating an apple in those would taste the same...

Honestly, that was my first time doing the booths, even though I'd worked there before during that time. I really enjoyed it, though

Caramel is awesome! There's so much stuff in there, too. They sell packaged Werther's candies, and they also have the fresh stuff. Fudges and apples and marshmallows and all sorts of stuff!

Tuesday, October 26, 2010 - Hollywood Studios, Magic Kingdom, MNSSHP

Fair warning, my photos on this day stopped fairly early for some reason. I really don't know why, since I know I had batteries and space on the card.

I'm not sure what time I woke up, but I managed to make it over to DHS to meet Sharon for rope drop. She was the second person in her line and I think I annoyed everyone behind her by squeezing in with her, but oh well. One person won't make much of a difference. Besides, we all wound up behind the rope anyway.







I like their opening show. It's cute I think I was the only one in our little area who got the 3.14/pi joke until the guy said "It's easy as pie".













Once they lowered the rope and let us all through, we headed in a general "that way" direction, but I'm sure you know where we (and everyone else) were headed.



Sharon was going faster than I was, so I gave her my KTTW card and she got my fastpass along with hers.



We decided to go ahead and get in the stand-by line as well, so that we could go twice without worrying about another fastpass later, since we had plans to go to MNSSHP that night. The back of the line was about halfway between Toy Story and the Backlot Tour, but the inside queue wasn't too bad. It wasn't snaking through everything yet.





I seriously love the theming of Pixar Place.





It's just so much fun





I seriously love this queue. Our house has a "sunroom" that my dad now uses as his (massively cluttered) study, and it was our play room when we were kids. We had so many toys and games in there that it basically looked like the queue









I was taking this pic for my boss, since I thought he'd get a kick out of it, but the other guest got in the way

I think I realized why I don't have so many pics of this day. This is the day where the shutter button of my camera started to stick, and I was tired of fussing with it.





I love the potato head barker!









That was my highest score, and I beat Sharon!

After we finished with Toy Story, we headed over to the Backlot Tour. I also apparently have a problem with taking pictures of fannish posters





I cannot WAIT for Tron Legacy to come out!











Yay!













After the tour, we stopped into the Buzz and Woody meet line, since it wasn't too bad. We took a lot of pictures of Pooh and Eeyore in the queue, which was cracking up the family behind and in front of us. The pics are all on Sharon's camera, though

After Buzz and Woody, we stopped at Starring Rolls.



Butterfinger cupcake! Yum!



And a chocolate croissant. We shared the cupcake, but Sharon didn't want any of the croissant.







We walked through the shops to enjoy the air conditioning.



This was adorable!

We ran over to Rock n Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror to grab fastpasses, even though she didn't want to do them, so she got one for the coaster and I got one for the tower so that I could them both later after she left to go pack.

After grabbing the fastpasses, we turned around and headed back to the other side of the park, heading for Sci-Fi for lunch!



And more fannish stuff!





I absolutely LOVE Castle. I started watching it for Nathan Fillion, but the show is actually very good!



I got a strawberry shake, which was excellent. I don't know why people were complaining about the shakes there.







I ordered a burger and fries. I think Sharon got the same.



We're not sure why, but our server decided to give us and the couple behind us cups with caramel corn in them!



For dessert, I got the hot fudge sundae



After lunch, we did Toy Story again.



I beat Sharon again!

After Toy Story, we did the Great Movie Ride before going to see Ariel. Sharon had never had the chance to see it before, and I think she enjoyed it.

We split up after heading up to the front of the park, since she wanted to go back to their hotel and start packing, as they were leaving the next day.

I went to Tower of Terror to use the fastpass, then went on Rock n Roller Coaster.





After that, I headed up to the front of the park and hopped on a bus to the TTC.



Troooooooon.

I tried to decide if I wanted to take the monorail or the ferry, as I like taking both of them.









I went straight to Stitch and got my wristband, but walked through the shops to get there.





I went on the TTA, as there was no line.



After that, I did Carousel of Progress again, and then Sharon texted me that she was at Pirates, so I went over there to meet her.









I forget where I saw this, but I loved it.

We went for dinner at Liberty Tree, and it was great. We were seated fairly quickly.







The salad was good, but I didn't really like the dressing.







Pooh liked the honey butter!



Mashed potatoes and macaroni and cheese!



Glazed ham, roast beef, and turkey. The beef and turkey were good, but I didn't try the ham. Sharon said it was good, but not the glaze.



Some sort of salad and green beans.



Globby gravy. It was all right, but would've been better if it had been hot and fresh.



Dessert! I wanna try to make this.

After dinner, we headed for Jungle Cruise, since we weren't sure if it was going to be open much longer, since it's a candy spot at the parties.



Our skipper, who was great.

Once we were off Jungle Cruise, we went on Aladdin, since it was there and Sharon wanted to.













Random party-goers whose costumes were fantastic. Her DH joined us at some point, although I'm not sure when. And that's the last of my pics for the night. Sharon continued taking pics of the parade and the fireworks.

We found ourselves on Small World, but after that, I don't remember what else we did. I know that we split up for the fireworks, since she wanted to go see them from Main Street, and I don't really like going to Main Street too close to the fireworks or parade, since it's just way too crowded. I wound up in the pin shop in Frontierland talking to a CM for like 40 minutes. I then met up with Sharon and her DH to watch the second parade, in Frontierland. Sharon had wanted to watch it from Main Street, which caused a bit of bickering.

After the parade, we went on Thunder Mountain. I don't remember what else we did after that, to be perfectly honest. I know we stayed until closing and then went back to our hotels at the end of the night

Note to self: Keep better notes next trip.

Okay. Trying to keep up...she certainly covered a LOT of ground!

Rope drop....Warning! You're going to be seeing a lot of mini Pooh and mini Eyeore in the next couple of posts!



In TSM, where I got beaten twice by Dana.







Waiting for Woody and Buzz autographs and causing a stir with the rest of the queue around us.

At Dana's request; so I'm posting these here.







Yes, they are there.....somewhere.







At Sci Fi Diner







Food porn? Refer to MY TR. I'm nearly done with Mickey Cheating and will be starting with the DisMeet soon.


We went on these rides as well....for more pictures of the ride and show, go to my TR (I did say "shameless self promotion??") .

It was in a shop on the way to Liberty Tree...




Here's where we waited for the Magic Carpet ride. Appropriate numbering system.






I made Dana go on this ride. I know how much she doesn't like the dolls....so thanks Dana.



Our companions on the ride.



Our ONLY companions!





The leprechaun for the Chicagan...



Here's the shot you wanted...



More great shots like this coming to my TR shortly.....

DH and I headed to Main Street to see HalloWishes so that I could get shots like this. I didn't bring a tripod; so I had to make do with hand held and not too long exposures.







And we ended up in the turn from Frontierland to Splash for the Parade. Not my ideal spot and if you do check out my TR and see the photos I got on the night we sat with HeatherBelle in the hub, you'll see why. It all has to do with the background. I would have liked the opportunity to address some of the bad shots I got at the hub; but in the end, I was also happy with some of the pictures I got in this spot.







And not so happy with others...



We went trick or treating after this. DH and Dana wanted to collect candy to take back for work colleagues. I'm pretty sure we hit every candy spot between here and Main Street via the Alice trail.

Two and the half days of DisMeet with Dana was great. I'm only sorry we ended on the minor hissy fit. At the end of the day, I figured that we'd spent all that time together without getting into any serious conflict.....we were doing well.

All yours now, Dana. I don't have any more pics of the rest of the TR.

It is my pleasure! Thanks for letting me hang out with you and taking shots of you, mini Pooh and mini Eeyore.
