Love your Living with the Land pics, I love that ride, it's very relaxing!

Ugh, Captain EO...I could swear my family and I saw it back when I was a kid but I don't remember it. I have no interest in seeing it now. I suppose if Brandon ever really wants to see it, I'll do it, since I'm always dragging him to Disney against his will but other than that, no thanks!

I'm so sad Test Track is going to be closed on our trip in May!!

I like your PP picture, even with the sun!

I know. Here's a guy whose hired his own doctor. He would have been much better off with a traditional medical arrangement or a nurse practitioner! Instead he's paying some quack to give him "milk". Seriously?

I just noticed your ticker! ARe you leaving tomorrow??????????

Have an awesome time. Please take tons of pictures and write about your cruise and trip!!!!!

Just use Amy's tip - have an adult beverage before you go! That won't be hard for Brandon - he loves his beer!

I do not know that. How long is it down for? I better check. I hope its running in June!

Thanks! There was one other one but Nick really had his nerd face on in that one. Ugh! I hate when he purposefully makes a funny face during a picture.

Loved all of your pictures, but that's not new!

I got my airfare when I booked the new trip, it was $475 for two. Last Sept the fare was $369, as long as the fare is under $500 I will fly.

Captain EO was the hot show when it first came out, so of course we had to see it. Not really my cup of tea, but the kids liked the show.

We rode the Land twice last trip as it was not busy & we hadn't ridden it in 20 years!

One year on our way to Cape Cod we somehow wound up in Queens. The midwest gal was scared to death! We did ok & found the interstate again.

I couldn't help but notice your ruffle tops, look like Chaps from Kohl's. I love the brand!

Captain EO was just exceptionally bizarre and weird. What's to sugar coat? Its awful. Why is it still there?? And they closed the Kitchen Kabaret, but EO's still there. Oh...wait...wrong EPCOT pavilion. Oops.

Good plan, then Denny can't fight you on it its really very relaxing and informative. I'd do it again I enjoyed it so much.

Yes, I'm so excited!!! I'm at six hours til the flight and will try and get a few hours sleep. I absolutely plan on doing a TR for this. I'm going to try and incorporate my last trip in too if I can.

Have a fabulous week

This is the best, best BEST photo!!! I LOVE your great big smile!!!!

I kind of like Captain EO- yes, I think it's very dated, but for me, that music is very nostalgic- I think I was in college when that came out, and all that Micheal Jackson music takes me back there....

That's exactly what two flights would cost me right now. It's hard to have them jump almost $100 for two. Even then, I don't mind buying one or two, but when you get to 3 - Yikes!

Do you mean your granddaughters? They are so darn cute!

Funny - I never really asked Nicholas what he thought. We just left the theatre and no one said too much!

Glad you didn't get too lost. I did not being lost in Manhattan (not Brooklyn). It was not fun.

I actually remember one year as a child we were coming home from NE and somehow my dad had us crossing the Tappanzee bridge going the wrong direction. Somehow he has already driven into New Jersey and got all twisted up and drove back across the bridge to NY. I remember that clearly because my dad was NOT a happer camper!

Good observation. Yup Kohl's clearance! Got a long sleeve one a few weeks ago.

I think they will run it for 3 years or so and then replace it with someone awesome. At least I hope they do!

I know so many DISers who loved kitchen kabaret. I loved Body Wars. Bring it back!

Exactly. And I KNOW he will like it. I'm not sure what the aversion is because I have mentioned it to him several times! But then again he's a man who won't enter the single rider line!

Girl - I hope you got at least a couple hours of sleep. So glad you are doing a TR. I can't wait to book my cruise for next year!

Hey Stranger! Welcome back!

I can't wait to see which picture you posted because I am at work right now and can't see a thing.

I tried really hard to work on the smiling this trip!

So you watch it after a couple adult beverages, right? I was definitely out of college (but not by much) so I don't know how I missed it during its hey day!

Hi Mary Ellen,

I'm slowly getting back on the DIS and caught up with your last update.

First, it says the water lily is edible. It doesn't say it tastes good.

And a miracle fruit is obviously one that tastes like steak.

Sorry, but Test Track is going to be closed all summer. Looks like it'll be down from April - September this year. We're going to miss out, too. I'll have a couple of disappointed boys with me.

And I agree on Captain EO. A little out there...

I was talking about my sons liking Captain EO. We saw it back in the 1980's, not since then.

I'm going to have to go to Kohl's to see what is reduced. Love those ruffle tops, bought quite a few last fall.

I'm glad you have a few free minutes to catch up here and there. I love the DIS because it does distract you from the real world for awhile and that can be a good thing.

Wow - I did not know that. I have to start paying more attention to things other than TRs. I'm not sad for myself, but I know my nephews would love that ride. Oh well! More time for Captian E.....oops - I meant Nemo!

I'm sticking with Amy's suggestion of an adult beverage (or two) prior to watching Captain EO. I think that might just work.

I wasn't sure if you meant that OR if you meant you had totally missed it in the 80's (like mwah) and took the girls during this last trip. I know they love Indiana Jones, but I don't remember you saying anything about the Captain.

I have a 20 % off coupon that expires tomorrow, so I just might need to make a stop there.

Yeah Epcot!!!

Love LWTL with the christmas additions. Also I agree about Captain EO - it was just 'meh' and I love MJ - think it needs an update.

The best thing about Test Track is the cars on the exit - it's like a kid being in a candy store

Great pic of the three of you in front of the iconic ball and am loving all the pretty flowers

Yes - I think MJ needs a tribute that spans his career, not one that just focuses on one part of it. But, hey, that's just me! And using Captain EO is easy since it was already done.

Seriously - those cars are gorgeous. I'm not a huge GM car fan, but when I look at the new cars it makes me want to go right out and buy one!

Thanks!

Don't you just love when they use poinsettias as ground cover. I think its great. I so wished I lived somewhere where I could plant poinsettias in the ground during the window. *Sigh*

Great News & A Turtle Crawl

Great News!!!!!!

Woo Hoo! I got some good news today! No one in my non-DIS life would care that much, but I think you guys will be excited that my wait list for The BWV for June 18th already came through!

You may remember that when I booked I flights I made our departure date 6/19. That left me no place to stay on 6/18 and I decided just to borrow some points and waitlist at BWV. I never thought it would come through!

Now we have 5 nights at SSR treehouse villa and 4 nights in a studio (standard view) at the BWV! Awesome! Problem solved!

The one problem that is still not solved is my Brother & SIL. SIL swears she is going, but brother can't seem to commit. So SIL has made no travel reservations. I do not understand how this is still up in the air less than 3 months before we leave. I asked them in August or September. Really??????

Rant over. Because when I rant I can literally feel my blood pressure go up.

So how about an update??????

When I left off we were on our way out of Epcot. We made it a short day. We got there at park opening and left around 1:30pm. It was, after all, our last full day in Florida. That meant it was basically our last chance to hit a pool or hot tub until...well....June! Sure, it wasn't super hot out, but it was nice enough for a trip to the hot tub.

Plus we had big plans for the evening........

Our first order of business was to fix an adult beverage. When I finally settled into a beach chair the sun felt glorious! I can definitely see why someone would want to spend their Christmas break in Florida. Yeah its crowded, but still such a nice change from cold, damp, Christmas weather.

I decided to take some cell phone pictures because in a little over 24 hours I would be saying good-bye to the sunshine state.







Denny and Nick hit the pool



It didn't take long for my home made adult beverage to disappear so I decided to disappear from the boys and go visit the Gurgling Suitcase. I had heard that visiting the GS was a must while staying at OKW. OMG - what a cute little bar.

So I bellied up to the bar and the nicest bartender ever asked me what I would like. I replied, "what do you recommend?" And that request resulted in this little beauty...........

May I present......The Turtle Crawl





Ingredients

Turtle Crawl Cocktail
Old Key West Resort

1/2 oz Castillo rum
1/2 oz Bacardi Silver rum
1/2 oz Malibu rum
1/2 oz Myers dark rum
Splash Grenadine
Splash key lime juice
Equal parts orange juice and pineapple juice

- Shake to mix in an ice filled 12 oz cup.

OMG - this drink was heaven in a cup! I loved it! I have to say that it was probably my favorite Disney drink of the trip! Yum - my!

If you ever visit OKW you MUST get one of these! So tropical!

I didn't take a lot of pictures because the bar was so small, but here is how the entrance above the door is decorated.





This really was a great little bar. But I never told the boys were I was going so I thought I better make an appearance and it was now time to hit the hot tub.

The boys actually ended up playing some ping pong





With another Turtle Crawl I could have sat at the pool into the sun set, but we had plans so it was time to get a move on. We all headed back to the room to get fixed up for dinner. We had another signature meal planned.

I took this pic on the way back to the room



But before dinner (7:30pm ADR) Nick really wanted to go see the Osbourne lights. I really hadn't built this into our original park plans because I have seen it a few times, but since Nick put in his request, I was not about to say no. I was actually really glad we went because it was spectacular. Better than I remember! So - way to go Nick!

When we first arrived it may not have been 100 percent dark yet so we decided to visit Kermie and Miss Piggy. Believe it or not, we walked right in. There wasn't even time to take any lobby pics.

Hi Miss Piggy



Hi Kermie



Yeah - I know - they are terrible pictures, but what do you expect with a 3D movie?

When we walked out of the Muppets it was dark and the Osbourne lights were in full swing.

So - May I Present The Osbourne Lights!









I love this next pic

I know so many DISers who loved kitchen kabaret. I loved Body Wars. Bring it back!
I went to Disney for the last time till 2010 just before the body pavilion opened. I remember seeing signs for it, though. I still think its totally weird that they just left it there. When I really stop and think about it, I get kind of sad that they haven't done more to keep Futureworld more up to date and...well...futuristic. I remember being there in the 80s and it just seemed like the coolest place on the planet. Obviously, I still love it because I still think EPCOT is my favorite park.


Cannot believe that your family hasn't made their travel arrangements yet. But I am thrilled BWV came through for you! That's fantastic. Your trip is going to be great. And LONG!

The Osbourne Lights look gorgeous. They almost look like reason enough to go down at Christmas. Someday!
