Great updates! Glad your DH got to do the segway tour at Epcot, it looks like so much fun! I'm so nervous about trying to ride a Segway though, I feel like I'd fail miserably!

Love all of the Animal Kingdom pics! I love the little Camp Minnie Mickey character area around Christmas, so cute! Chip and Dale have become some of my favorite characters to meet, they're so funny!

Yay, MK! Every year I try to see the castle lighting ceremony, and every year I fail! Maybe next year! It looks so magical, I really have to see it at least once!

Ahhh the Grand Floridian, that is my absolute ultimate dream resort, I LOVE that place! I'm sorry your dinner wasn't good, and that they screwed up your dining plan and credit card, that's annoying! I think my sister and I will be going to breakfast there in Feb., I'm really looking forward to it! I love Basin, I've always wanted to get one of those candles!

He said it wasn't hard at all and all of the people in his group did really well.

We loved their little Christmas outfits and trees. I was happy my BFF wanted to do this. I am not sure we would have done it otherwise.

Yay, MK! Every year I try to see the castle lighting ceremony, and every year I fail! Maybe next year! It looks so magical, I really have to see it at least once!

It only takes about 20 minutes or so. So worth taking the time to see. I highly recommend.

I know !! I want to stay there, too !! And with them building the DVC section, I know it will happen !!

Yes, the dinner was a major disappointment. I hope your breakfast there is good.

I love Basin, too !! We especially love the bath bombs.

I'm all caught up. I don't have time to quote because I have so many TR's to catch up on.

Now, let's see what I can remember.

Love the photos at Garden Grill. The villa at the Beach Club looks great...can't wait to be in one in June. I am so sorry we didn't get to see Animal Kingdom last week...I love Minnie's outfit.

And the Osborne Lights were worth the price of the entire trip...simply spectacular.

We stayed at Saratoga Springs.

I agree about Osborne Lights. Now I am bummed we only went to see them once this trip.

Can you tell I'm exhausted, behind, etc.??? I'm mixing up everyone's TR's!

I wish we had gone to see it twice too.

OK - what's the deal with them NOT taking your TIW card for your drinks? I am current in saying that they were wrong? That really annoys me, especially since the TIW card price is jacked up to $100. Sorry your meal was less than stellar.

It sort of confirms my impression that Disney's food quality is falling and they are slowly jacking up all the prices and start to nickel and dime people for stuff. Annoying.

Love the Basin candles. They are pretty cool.

I know it was wrong of her to refuse the TiW. DH just didn't know any better. If I had been there, I would have made her take it or asked for a manager. DH was already peeved that it took so long and she charged our card.

Yes, we love Basin.

I'm sorry to hear that your meal was a bit of a disappointment! The steak really does look a bit lackluster - and yeah I wouldn't have been thrilled about those "greens" either!

Your candles from Basin are really cool though!

We were so bummed about it. Our previous meal there was so, so delicious and everything went so well. It was very disappointing to have such a drastic opposite experience.

We love all of the stuff at Basin. It is all so cool.

Day 4 – Part 1

We got up early on this day so we could hit EMH at Hollywood Studios.

The Christmas tree









DH headed over to get FP’s for Toy Story Mania while the rest of us headed towards Sunset Blvd.



DS headed over to ride Rock n Rollercoaster while DD and I got some breakfast from Fairfax Fare



I got an egg and cheese sandwich with sausage.



I got one for DH that had bacon in it.



DD wanted a cinnamon roll



And for a CS credit you could get a yogurt and a drink with it,



DH met back up with us and we ate. DS came back from RnR and said they let him ride three times without even having to get out. He was funny. He said “Yeah, three times is enough.” He ate the sausage out of my sandwich and half of the cinnamon roll.

This is just a basic CS breakfast. It was pretty decent food and filled us up.

DD conned me into buying her a headband in one of the shops.



After breakfast, Dh and the kids the rode Star Tours twice while I waited. That ride makes me sick.







Then we rode the Great Movie Ride



Which had a crazy long line already.



We got to go up front though because the scooter doesn’t fit through that windy line thing they got going on in there. It looked like it was moving pretty fast. Anyway, we got your standard gangster scene. We liked it.

Ah, you are one of THOSE! You know, the ones that join Early Entry with Extra Magic Hours, to confuse the issues. Sorry,, EMH is at night and I'm sticking to it!

The Christmas tree
So glad you cleared that mystery up.
(ok, I'm sorry, like I said, I'm out of painkillers and I tend to get a bit , um, "sarcastic"

I don't thhink I/we, have ever eaten first thing in a theme park, Disney or otherwise, I'm usually too much in commando mode then, b ut since I havent eaten yet, that sounds pretty goof right now.

good



And for a CS credit you could get a yogurt and a drink with it,

THERE you go! That's why. I don't eat dead bacterium.

DH met back up with us and we ate. DS came back from RnR and said they let him ride three times without even having to get out. He was funny. He said “Yeah, three times is enough.” He ate the sausage out of my sandwich and half of the cinnamon roll.

The way you wrote that give me a strange image in my head; part magician, part disgusting!

This is just a basic CS breakfast. It was pretty decent food and filled us up.

Absolutely. Nothing better than being filled up before you ride Tower of Terror.


After breakfast, Dh and the kids the rode Star Tours twice while I waited. That ride makes me sick.

"One cheese, sausage and egg sammich, comin' right up!"


Then we rode the Great Movie Ride



Which had a crazy long line already.

That's the strangest ride when it comes to lines, you never know what it's going to be like, and it never makes any sense.



We got to go up front though because the scooter doesn’t fit through that windy line thing they got going on in there. It looked like it was moving pretty fast. Anyway, we got your standard gangster scene. We liked it.
I couldn't begin to tell you how many test,,,,um,, how many times those posts have hit me in the worst spot in that long, winding line.

Thanks Sue, for the installment, Hope I didn't scare away too many of your readers.

Wow, what a 180 at Grand Floridian Cafe! That steak looked unappetizing, and the server screwing with your TiW discount- what a disappointment.

I really wish we could have joined you at DHS that morning. Sadly, DD was not up to the early morning haven gotten sick the day before. She'll be bummed when I tell her your DS rode RnRC three times without even having to re-board the ride.

Early Entry then - I stand corrected.

And the "egg and sausage sandwich coming right up!!" comment made me belly chuckle.

Thanks for coming by and commenting neebs !! You've made my day !! So funny !! Being out of painkillers would make me wonky, too.

Susan

Yes, we were very disappointed with our dinner. Last year it was so awesome. I don't know what happened. I am still blown away by the fact that they thought that was worth $187.

I wish you would have, too. I am so sorry your DD got sick. We totally did not get to spend enough time together. And I'm all pouty about it.
