I don't like Margaritas at all, but I must say that the one you got looks awfully tasty.

Too funny about Brandon being unable to take a photo of you walking ahead of him.

And what a good eye he has to catch that hawk...I've never seen one in Epcot before.

I don't know how many pictures Brandon took in front of Spaceship Earth...but those are quite lovely... very artistic...

I do have to say seeing the hawk is pretty cool... and it's cool to see how those pieces all fit together on the top of Spaceship Earth...

Margaritas are yum...

A long line at the Ditch? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Not a big fan of frozen ritas, but they will definitely do in a pinch.

Anyho - I missed your update last night and now I can't see any pics, so I shall return.

Funny that Brandon saw that Hawk and yes - I love how close POR is to Epcot!

Yippee another fantastic update! The hawk photo was pretty cool!

Oh and that margarita does look yummy. We missed out on LaCava during our last trip...in fact we missed out on the whole World Showcase! All the more reason to go back in three weeks! At least if there is a line, we have options now!

They say once you go deluxe you can't go back… I think it's true! I've become a bit of a deluxe snob lately myself - they are just so much better! That marg looks pretty tasty, and I do like mango… And your DH's eyesight is pretty amazing to spot that hawk!

um okay first of all....I'm just joining you now and already you score major points with me because Epcot Is my heart,I think about it everyday too how can ya not its Amazing!!!The food the drinks the culture the atmosphere and Disney all together I swear I could a spend a week just going to epcot everyday(then I'd add a day or 2 for the other parks of course)
HOLYCOW!!!! are we related you say everything I think,it's almost creepy I agree that Marie belongs in france,and about mo rockin n the belly dancer and JAPAN!!!! I had to read futrther in to see if you mentioned hello kitty ,but since you didn't I didn't die of heart failure so it's all good.
mmmmm karamel kuche my suggestion to you and everyone is that you simply must try the chocolate caramel covered pineapple,thats the stuff dreams are made of!
and I could spend my life in Mousegear i tell ya.
Also I'm jealous that your TTA castle pic is better than any I've yet to take.Tomorrowland is so fun!
WE had a royal room in september n you're right pics don't do it justice especially that magical headboard.
I'm not sure if I'm excited to read more or creeped out because you type what goes through my mind lol I wonder what you'll say next

Although he didn't get the look he seemed to be going for with you looking at SE, the one of you looking at the fountain turned out great! I love that fountain. And your Christmas ears look really cute!

That margarita looks delicious!!

Whoa! That hawk pic is too cool! Kudos to hawk eyes Brandon for spotting it.
I also am in the category of didn't realize POR was that close to Epcot! Very cool!
Too bad about the line at the Ditch, but at least you got a passable substitute!

Hi Jen! Love your trip reports! My hubby and I were just at Disney World in September. But we already have another vacation to Disney planned for March. Only two months away! We have never stayed onsite but looking at all the wonderful places you get to stay at Disney is convincing me to give it a try.

Whoa, that hawk on top of Spaceship Earth is pretty cool, but I would've totally missed it, too. My eyesight is horrendous.


Haha, I love whenever someone (usually me) has a cool picture idea, then it turns into way more work than it should be because the shot isn't coming out the way you thought it would. That being said, the one with you in front of the fountains is actually really neat! Especially with the Mickey ears on.


What else is in that frozen margarita? It looks really good, and I love mango, so I'm interested in trying that out sometime in the future.

Oh my gosh, that room is gorgeous! I love all those princess pictures especially the ones of all the couples together. Haha, it looks like a prom picture!

I love the picture of the hawk on SE! I have to show that to my husband because we always stare at them when they fly overhead.

The margarita looks like it'd be so refreshing in the heat.

Ok, so I just got caught up with yours! Thanks for taking your time cause it gave me time to read it!

I love reading about your trip and figuring out where I was on the same day! I'm so bummed we weren't ever in the same place at the same time... Maybe there will be another chance.

So far everything sounds like so much fun. I know what you mean about being a deluxe snob... We did ASMo and I just didn't love it. It was fine, I was in Disney, but I am spoiled, I guess...

Going to get caught up!

OK, I have been DIS MIA for awhile...you know how it is after getting back and going into that deep Disney depression. But I am back and all caught up!

1. Love how Brandon knows the princesses and loved the POR room
2. I am in love with the rooms at POR! I don't like how the resort is so big, but seeing your room makes me want to change my mind.
3. What do you like at La Cava? I went once but did not enjoy my drink.
4. I need to go to F&W! Seeing your pics always makes me so jealous and hungry!
