I can't beleive you have only been to Epcot once other time. You've been living under a rock!

I'm glad you enjoyed it. I have yet to ride mission space too.

I know! That's the park we always skipped on our trips! I'd like to go back, when it's not so hot, so we can explore that park even more!

Tuesday, June 19

Our next day we had planned to check out of Best Western LBV, and into SSR. We had an ADR for Ohana.


We arrived at the Polynesian for our breakfast.












Shortly after being seated, our food arrived! Yummy!!






And the characters came and made their rounds.












After we finished, we walked around the beautiful resort.
I loved the gift shops and art shops.












Continuing:

Then, we made our way outside and took a few pics.











We noticed this little duck playing around in the water. It was so cute!













We made our way over to the beach area.










Next: More fun at the Polynesian

The breakfast was pretty good! We enjoyed it there, even just walking around, exploring the resort!

Sorry for lack of updates lately! Everything's been hectic again, but I am working on getting more pics uploaded, and can ya'll believe that I still have not uploaded our photopass??
That's how busy everything has been lately. Especially with my school stuff, with one presentation/project after another. And DD's senior year stuff with meetings, orders for graduation stuff, more pictures! etc...


So I hope you all stick around while I get caught up!!

After walking around a bit outside, we noticed where you could rent boats, sea-racers, etc. So we strolled over there and checked it out.



We decided to rent a sea-racer,





and DD wanted to drive!!







A few safety instructions:





And we're on our way!!! Here's a few random pics:




























It was really fun! It was a cloudy day with some winds, so the water wasn't so calm, and we got a little wet. We had to both sign papers that had all the rules, waivers, etc. One of the rules was no cameras or video cameras; which I broke both of those rules, as you can see the pictures!
I figured if you're willing to take the risk of damaging or losing your camera, then it shouldn't be a problem. Even though I understand they probably don't want a ton of lost items floating around in their lake!!



After we turned in our boat and life jackets, we had a quick ice cream break before leaving!








Coming up: Checking in to SSR.
And our planned rest day, turned into another park day!!!

On a side note, thought I'd add a few "happenings" going on:


Most of you probably know that I've been babysitting, along with all the other million things going on. I decided that after this weekend, I won't be able to do it regularly anymore. With my schooling, DD's senior year stuff, clinicals coming up, DD is doing a volunteering project twice a week at a nursing home, working my weekend job, and everything else, it's just too much! She's the sweetest thing, but I just can't let it interfere with everything I have to do anymore.

On a positive note....DD has been looking into information on the Disney College Program. Nothing definate, but she's been having it on her mind a lot lately!!! I think it would be exciting! So we got to looking around on their website, etc., and found a "presentation" schedule, where they go around to different colleges/universities, and give more information, etc. I found that they will be coming to a University in our area....next week!!!!! So we are planning to go to it, at least just to learn more about the program. I'm just excited to find out about this at such short notice! So I will definately have to let ya'll know if we went, and what we find out!!!

The sea-racer looked like great fun! I love the pictures of the GF.

I'm sorry about the baby sitting, sounds like you made a wise decision though.

So glad you broke the "no camera" rules for the benefit of your TR...

The Disney College Program would be amazing!!! A friend of mine son did it and became a friend of Peter Pan...

Gosh...you know we are busy when we can even facebook chat anymore. I have been swamped too.

The sea racers look really fun. I might have to look at that in the future. i used to own a wave runner many moons ago and that was so much fun to ride.

I am so excited to see that DD is interested in the College program!
