I'm still following along! I like the "non-touring plan - touring plan" quip.

I'd like to try that croissant berry pudding, but I'm not sure that I'll ever be in the vicinity at breakfast time....being the victim of a touring plan, and all.

Send Judy over for FPs at Soarin' and then surprise her with some Croissant Berry Pudding. It's a win-win

Great update, Kelly. We are doing the exact same thing -- fastpasses for Soarin' and then having breakfast at Sunshine Seasons. And you can tell Geoff that I AM having the kids' french toast.

Day 3 - Part 2

As our non-Touring Plan continued, we mosied over to the World Showcase.

We stopped here to admire the last bit of Flower and Garden that remained:


And to debate...left or right? Right won, as it was too early for a margarita.

We headed into the UK pavilion and strolled through the stores.




This was the Pooh & Friends area all boarded up. I was curious to see if they were moving it, but apparently just refreshing it. Oh. Not as exciting news as I thought.

From the UK, we headed over the bridge to France to walk through their stores:




We decided to watch the movie since I haven't seen it in years.


We were the only ones in the room waiting, and I think the CMs thought we were just looking around because no one could possibly want to see the movie at 1120...right? In a few minutes, more people came in, so one of them came in to start the movie. It was nice, I'm glad I watched it again. It makes me want to go to France...which I guess is kind of the point.

Next up was Morocco, and lunch.



It was a little early, but we were determined not to back track, so lunch it was!



We split the combo platter:


Here's a tip: don't eat there early. I swear we had the left over pieces from the day before. Still okay, just not as great as it usually is.

We did a little more shopping in Morocco. (I was looking to see if I could find a floppy sun hat.)



My Dad's afraid of snakes, but my Mom likes weird jewelry (she has an octopus ring she calls her Ursula ring...) So I sent her this and told her she could scare my Dad:


He picked up the phone apparently and wasn't happy with me

Our next stop was Japan...this is becoming predictable, huh?



I tried to get Geoff to buy me Mikimoto pearls, but he told me I should get a good commission check It was worth a shot.

I have a love affair with black Mikimoto pearls. For my birthday he asked me what I wanted, so I sent him a link to a picture of an $80,000 necklace. I didn't get it (He did get me a black pearl necklace and matching earrings )

Our next stop was America...which I now always hear as if Sam Eagle was saying it...where we stopped and listened to the Voices of Liberty. Always a favorite of mine.

Close up!




And since this feels like a natural stopping point...I'll stop here. Next up: We continue our tour around the world!

Not really TR related, but I was playing with some of the editing options on my one app and this is how the France picture from the bridge above turned out, thought I'd share! I'm a big fan of the way the first one turned out, if I do say so myself!!

I like the second one -- it looks like an old-time postcard.


And regarding the last chapter, I've got "movie in France" and the show in the American pavilion (is it "the American Experience"?) as 'must do's' for our next trip.

I've heard people suspect before that early lunches in Morocco might contain items left from the night before. But I might have heard it from you....sometimes I forget who said what.

I think it was me. I think I said about the same thing on my DR Oops.

I think on my Solo trip I'm going to try and see a lot of the movies. That's my goal anyway, we'll see how it goes.

And I like the first one because I think it looks like an old time postcard. Funny!

Haha, yeah, I used just my iPhone for the pictures this trip. Some are fine, but most aren't great. I mean, they'd be fine for personal use since I've been so many times, but not for TR use! I'll be taking our fancy new camera we bought for the honeymoon down in September so I can get used to it.

Haha. I have 3 trips on the webpage now I really am enjoying the world showcase through your eyes. Especially since I am taking DH for F&W. We never have a chance to check everything out because the kiddos would rather be in Future World
