I have to admit, I am feeling a little bad now for spilling the beans about Caitlin. I am just so happy for her and I thought you would want to know. FB can be a double edged sword sometimes and I probably should have kept my big mouth zipped.

They definitely were both quite good. (Though the cake is larger than needed.) Alas, now that they're up to 2 credits even for lunch, with the basic meal plan I'll be on during my trip there in January for the Goofy Challenge, I'll be going south of the border rather than north.

I hear ya on that! I usually have TIW so its doable. It's a shame they couldn't keep the 1TS credit for lunch.

Good luck with the Goofy Challenge - that's a race, right?

Great updates! Figment is one of our favorites and after reading your post the song is stuck in my head again

LeCellier looks so good! We really need to get over there one of these days. Dale did have their filet at F&W though and loved it!

Lastly, love the pic of X enjoying the chocolate off his plate! Priceless

Thanks. Technically, it's a race and a half , since the full title is the Goofy Race and a Half Challenge. (Half-marathon on Saturday, full marathon on Sunday, creaky knees and hips for a while afterwards )

Le Cellier is still our family's favorite restaurant in WDW.
It's a must-do every trip.
The trick will be figuring out a way to handle the 2 TS credit from now on.

The boy loves his dessert.

Jumping? During the Goofy Challenge? Ouch, that'd probably hurt.

Hmmm... an upcoming trip report. Question is whether you're referring to mine on my upcoming Jan 2013 trip, or the trip we took this past January.

Hey gang!
Sorry I've been offline most of this month.
With school, scouts, sports, and work, life has been really hectic.
And then there's the little tidbit about us heading to California for our first ever visit to Disneyland next week!!

We are very excited but very busy getting ready for both that and our princess' birthday this weekend.
But I promise to get back to the report upon our return from the West Coast (and I may try to slip a post or two in before we leave).

Oh Bother

Sorry for the long delay everyone we ventured to the West Coast to see how it all started.
Very, very different but thats another story.
In this one we were finishing up at our favorite restaurant at the World (and even at the Land).

So we headed back into the World Showcase and across the Pond to merry old United Kingdom.




And on to have some fun.
DS checked out the phone booths but when DD went in, I called from my cell phone and really freaked her out.
J took pics since I was hiding a little ways away.








We tried the same trick with X but it didnt work as good since he couldnt reach the phone.
Mom took pics this time.






Then we headed into the Toy Solider.
We had some friends to meet of course!












Then it was across the English Channel and to the City of Lights!

When Aristocrats Meet Aristocats

Mom went off to get some snacks at La Patisserie.
I believe she had her heart set on a chocolate croissant.
X settled for a chocolate chunk cookie.




While Mom and X ate, we wandered the streets of Paris.
Inside one of the shops, the kids even found a game.
We had to search for Remy!


This was the easy and obvious answer.
But not correct.


It took all of our “Where’s Waldo” skills but we finally located him.
I’ll give it away since apparently they move him around all the time.
Take a look – can you see him?




Then we headed over to Kidcot to let the kids color some Duffys.
Our princess was in a photographic mood so we added to our Hats Around the World collection.






Back outside, the aristocrats were fraternizing with the Aristocats.
Here’s a meeting you don’t often see…


Our princess followed the French princess and off we went to talk princess talk and compare skirts and, well, you know – princess stuff!
I must admin, though, this was one of the better Aurora’s I’ve seen.








Then we headed over to meet the cat.
Marie was purring over by the kiosk.










Finally, it was time to meet the Beast!
This guy is always so HUGE!










Quick!
Which one is which?


I couldn’t resist.
And with a quick "Au Revoir" we headed back into the Showcase.

BACK! Mmmm those croissants look delicious! I love the pics of your daughter and Marie. The Aristocats is one of my favorites! It would be nice if Berlioz and Toulouse could be there as well. I wonder why they don't have them
