Thanks pixarmom. Your pictures truly tell a story. You can describe these things over and over but until you see them.....

Question for PixarMom and maybe Natebenma

PixarMom, thanks for your amazing photo tour of the path from the Jib slide's exit to its entry. Really, really helpful.

A quick follow-up question for you and, perhaps, Dee, as I'll be solo with my 6-year old daughter for the first few days until my husband arrives -- do you think the upstairs gazebo might be a decent place to catch a glimpse of Jib slide riders while they're on the public part of the walking path (before/as they turn left at the pirate ship to head back to the slide entry)?

With my deepest apologies to Dee for mentioning her secret seating area again!

What secret spot???

The answer is: Maybe.

Here is my own series of photos of this area. The 3 pictures of the slide are taken from the gazebo area, so I think if you were in a different spot, you might have a decent view of the public pathway











Question for Pixarmom, or others- is there an entry to the stairs from both sides of the Jib Slide, or just on the left hand side?

Pixarmom - What fantastic pictures! One of the best I've seen. Thanks so much for the photos of the Bakery in France and the BC turkey sandwich menu.

Teena - feel better!

Dee - Hope you are weathering the storm!

We're at the southern end of Genesee County. Funny thing is our schools never close, and if they do they always wait until the last minute to call it quits. It's kind of a running joke. The subs were almost impossible to get in and out of, though, so I think the buses might have gotten stuck! Sounds like you should have had a snow day, too!!

I agree with Dee regarding the "maybe." Our 6-year-old is a strong swimmer - he's on swim team year-round and just fine on the slide when it comes to the swimming part. But I'm less comfortable with him going up the stairs to the slide on his own. His brothers (ages 12 and 13) go with him. And it's not because I'm concerned about his swimming - just not feeling great about the climb up the stairs and across the walkway. There isn't a good spot to see the entire route.

He did go up the stairs alone once, when he tried to escape us for just "one more slide" last week. Under the circumstances you describe, I'd probably set up camp near the slide exit and walk our 6 yo across to the stairs. But that may be overly cautious.

Yes, there are paths and stairs on both sides of the pirate ship. We just don't end up using the path on the other side much because it's further from the slide exit!

Here's a photo of the stairs, and the path on the left side.



And a photo of the other side of the ship:



Can't really see the path in that last one, but it's there!

But my friend & I booked it as a surprise for my daughter, who got sick and didn't come
DH really loves the Captains Grille buffet breakfast! There's so many great dining option in Epcot area!

We've never tried Sci Fi, just always seems like negative reviews. Not many dining choices at HS, we do like the Brown Derby.

I've never been in GF, just on the monorail past it. What do the serve for tea? Cucumber sandwiches? Little desserts?

Thanks!

If anyone has a picture of the new stuff, I would appreciate it.


I stayed YC CL and it was the grapefruit stuff...i miss the blue!!!!!!!
I don't have a picture because i was so sad. I went down to the store in the lobby and they told me they don't sell the blue anymore and that they knew it was going high priced on ebay
It's so funny that you're talking about the blue h2o because 2 days ago I said something DH about us having a bag of it in the linen closet that he never used. We always travel with our own toiletries, but he always wants to keep the little bottles & I want to donate to a shelter. So I just went to look; we have 2 shampoos, 3 conditioners, 3 lotions, 3 shower gels &10 bars of soap! I had no idea this was a hot commodity!!!

Pixarmom thankyou so much for the photos, they're fab .

I would not want to be in that room with the balcony though it looks like the trees want to come in and say good morning.

It may be cruel to give this recipe if you are stuck and unable to get the ingredients, but here goes:


RICE WHISKEY TREATS
5 ½ cups Rice Krispies
10-oz. bag marshmallows
½ stick (¼ cup) salted butter
2 tablespoons bourbon
¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Generously butter an 8 x 8″ baking dish. In a sauce pan, melt butter, stir in cinnamon and marshmallows. When marshmallows have melted completely, remove from heat and quickly stir in bourbon and a sprinkle of salt, then add the Rice Krispies and stir and stir and stir until evenly combined.
Press treats into buttered dish

Sprinkle with salt, if you like.
Oh I'm definitely going to have to try these

WOW I love this thread.

Great photo stories from Pixarmum. Think I'll add breakfast from the French Bakery and Picabu at the Dolphin to my list.

Think I may be using the path to the slide once or twice, with my children of course.
