It's positively dreadful! I have been seriously slacking on my DIS time and when I get back there's so many things I need to read I don't get to my own. It will be finished I promise.

I'm so excited for the cruise!!! Time has just been flying by and before I know it days pass before I'm on here again, it's terrible.

An update will be done today. Now that that's written I must do it!

at the bold! Good luck! I know what you mean though! I've been struggling with my Destination D report, so many details to cover! I've got to finish that before my trip to WDW. The cruise TR is almost over, I'm a day ahead with writing than I am with posting, so I've got at least two more updates on the burner.

I still have a day and a half on the DD report and it will be about 10-12 updates!

you gave me quite a chuckle! I've just been lazing about enjoying catching up with everything. I must must must get a move on.

So many wonderful details on the DD report. No need to rush and miss any of them.

I left off with us heading over to HS after a nice relaxing afternoon by the pool. We probably got there around 5:50 and headed right to TSM. There weren’t too many people there so I was hopeful.






Unfortunately it was a 45 minute wait and I started to walk away sadly thinking R & M weren’t going to experience it when R asked why don’t we get FPs? Huh? FPs? I didn’t notice the machines were still open. Well amazingly there were still two machines open and we got tickets for between 8-9 that evening. Hooray! We then headed around to the Muppets since it was closed the other day.



They did leave the key, how thoughtful of them! (I love these little touches)









I liked this one because of the Nehru jacket. I get such a chuckle in Toy Story 3 when Barbie threatens Ken with the Nehru jacket.



Mary Ellen, I think we took a picture of the same thing.



They loved the show. The technology could be updated but it’s still really cute and makes me happy.

After The Muppet Show we started to head towards Star Tours since that’s one of Mom’s favorites but I told them I needed to sit it out since I get woozy. Well then M said she’d rather sit it out too, so I said to R that he’d need to go with mom alone and he said he wasn’t going he was going to get some food and walked away. WHAT!!! Firstly, you do not just leave the group in Disney. Secondly, maybe the rest of us wanted some food, why didn’t he ask us if we wanted to go too. Thirdly, if he was hungry why didn’t he get some appetizers in the CL before we left the resort? I got really mad really quickly. Mom said he was just going to get some popcorn since he didn’t get any the night before at MK. Well he didn’t say he was going for popcorn he said he was going for food. I thought he was going for a meal. My blood pressure went sky high.

Well Star Tours was quickly forgotten and Mom and M started looking at a little stand with souvenirs. I went and sat on a bench and waited for everybody. About ten minutes later R showed up again with no popcorn or food. He said he couldn’t find a popcorn stand. Ok, so if he really wanted popcorn why didn’t he ask me where the nearest stand was? I have an app that shows all the parks including all the food areas, and yes I did tell him that many times. He also said that the Indiana Jones store was closed so he couldn’t get the whip he wanted the other day. What is this wandering around alone? Then he and mom walked away together and left M at the souvenir stand. I felt like I was in the twilight zone. Of course I waited for her and as it turns out she had found the whip he wanted and was buying it for him. And then when we caught up with Mom and R he stops for a smoke break. At this point I just keep walking I was so annoyed. The least he could do was smoke when he was off gallivanting alone.

When they caught up with me mom saw a popcorn cart a little bit away and told R. Well suddenly he didn’t want popcorn anymore. Mom said she was going to get him some. No he didn’t want any. You guys can picture this I hope. Little kid is now arguing with his mommy. Well she goes off to get popcorn and he goes off alone. Both leaving M and I just standing there open mouthed and confused. We waited for mom for a while. Apparently a new batch of popcorn was being made. She came with two boxes of popcorn. I suspiciously thought that she probably used her KTTW card that I was paying for. Usually she is free to buy anything and everything she wants, but not for things that R was being really annoying about. I didn’t ask at the time but did see the charge on the receipt after the trip. Oh well. M was pretty speechless the whole time we were waiting for mom. If it was my husband I’d be embarrassed by his childish behavior but she didn’t say anything, just let me rant and rave about how selfish he was being. We caught up with him at the bottom of Sunset Boulevard where he did not apologize. He did however take and devour the popcorn mom had gotten him. I guess we all just decided not to talk about it and headed off to RnRC. It was a 20 minute wait which seemed like ages since we had been so lucky in the wait department but we managed to be patient. They absolutely LOVED it! This is the one and only group picture I have of us the whole trip. I liked this one even better than the one at Splash Mountain so didn’t need to go over to MK and get it.



You can partly see that R was holding onto the front of the car in terror. The CM who sold me the picture said she’s never seen someone do that which gave her quite the laugh.

Terrible night pictures with the phone but proof of the night’s events.





Then it was off to ToT which was a walk on. M said she was even more scared this second time since she knew what to expect. It’s one of my all time favorites.

Then it was time to redeem our TSM FPs so we headed that way. Ironically it was a walk on anyway. Everyone loved it like I expected. It was 8:40 and still a walk on so I said let’s go again but R’s arm was hurting him. Oh my goodness. TSM a walk on and you don’t want to do it! In retrospect I should have gone alone but this was a family trip and I wanted to stay with the family so gave them the choice of what to do. We could head over to Star Tours for mom or just head out. R suggested we beat the crowds since the park closed at 9:00 so that’s what we did.



I really wanted to go to DTD to grab some dinner but the only bus that I could see was ‘Hotels in the DTD area’ and I wasn’t sure where that would drop off so we just headed back home. We decided to rent movies again and we got National Treasure a 2nd time so we could finish it and R & M got Brothers Grimm. Up to the CL for some desserts. No pictures because I forgot my camera which was fine because they were the same ones as the night before. Then I headed down to the Mara to get a flatbread and fries for dinner. Again no picture. Not sure what happened. We had a nice relaxing evening finishing up the movie and eating dinner. I also caught up in my journal before going to sleep around 11:30.

I think that was the last big drama of the trip, thank goodness. I’m also glad we had two rooms far away from each other.

Agh! I truly hope that was the last of the drama! There is really nothing worse than not getting along with family during a family vacation. It's uncomfortable and irritating.

I can't believe you're already leaving for your cruise in 24 days! Super stinkin' jealous!

Happy New Year!

It was just so ridiculous I couldn't understand it. At one point he commented the he wished he had stayed home since he feet still hurt. Well I wish he had stayed home too.

I'm so excited about the cruise. I'm getting a little sad it's a short one, but I keep reminding myself the only reason I'm sneaking this in is because it's over the weekend and only taking one day off work.

Happy New Year!

That was a stroke of luck that Fastpasses for TSM were still available. I have to admit that I could not have resisted that ride being walk on. I am sorry about all the drama and confusion.

Happy NY's Pam!

No wonder you waited so long to write that update. Your brother? I just get the feeling he really didn't want to be there and as a result his planning was so poor.

Thank goodness RnR put a smile on everyone's face. And that picture of the RnR building turned out great!

Happy to see you updating again.
