Phew! Finally caught back up. So many things to comment on that I can't remember now. Maybe it's the NyQuil kicking in. Oh well...
STACEEEYYYYY! I love her but I seriously want her job! I need to go watch her new scenes on YouTube. I hope they didn't change her theme song!
Ride photos and random awkward line photos are off to a good start! So awesome that your friends were game! We tried with our friends and the photos are hilarious because we always posed and they just look so serious. They never played along

Your "happy anniversary" story is funny because it is very similar to what happened to me and my friend one trip. We usually go the first week in June. Being that week, and being that my brother and his partner have gone that week, you would think we would have realized that both of us, husbandless with children, wearing anniversary buttons, would be interpreted a certain way but.... Anyway....as the guys went to play golf we took our combined kids to see all the princesses. Well, at each royal photo op they kept commenting on our lovely family and beautiful children etc, etc. As we left town hall and got yet another "Happy Anniversary", to which we both happily replied thank you in unison again, our teenage boys, who are best friends, started laughing and said, "you two don't have a clue do you?" and as they explained it to us we all just died laughing! The best part, aside from the fact that apparently the kids knew what everyone thought and never felt the need to correct anyone, was one of the kids commented how nice every single person had been to us. So it's good to know that Disney respects all families! I have proof
Ok trip report hijack over! Sorry!

I laughed pretty hard at Matt and Bruce's marriage celebration. I imagine they either just went with it 1. because it was too awkward to correct, or 2. they didn't realize the implication. either way, it's comedic gold.

I KNEW IT! I knew I wasn't crazy! My family told me I was losing it when I said they were playing LOTR music in the Stave church! When we went in there it wasn't the main song, a more obscure LOTR song and they are always tell me that I think EVERYTHING is LOTR Theme music so they didn't believe me! Thank you for redeeming me! And, it made my day to realize that you thought of me while at Disney! I know, geeky, but still made me smile!

OMG, too cute that the guys got Anniversary wishes!

I know that I am not the first to do so, but I would like to wish Matt and Bruce a very Happy Anniversary! I should have sent a gift; I am sorry.

Seriously, though, let's discuss School Bread. Oh, wait, I can't because I am drooling.

I'm glad I'm not the only person obsessed with that mural! When I see that happy boy, I imagine him saying, "YESSSSSSS!" as he slices through the fish. Score one for the creepy boy!

Heh. I remember the Hoveround. Heh. They play that commercial still on the GameShowNetwork quite often, and the Grand Canyon bit gets me every time. One day, I will totally yell into the Grand Canyon while on a Hoveround, even if I don't need one yet. I feel like they should have one set up for people to reenact the commercial, just a random tourist spot/photo op.

And with that, I think I'll be done before people start giving me the side-eye like the troll in Maelstrom.

your story about matt and bruce is HILARIOUS. Reminds me of when I go to Safeway with the BF and we use my parents phone number for membership and they call him Mr. my last name, it cracks me up everytime!!! And your pictures are just making me think that we need to spend WAY more time in Epcot next time!!! The day we were there there were intermittent showers - like every 20 minutes it would start pouring (like clockwork) so we didn't spend as much time there as we should have.

You were starting to get hungry... I have to wonder if that means you were gonna try to go to an ADR early or go to a CS place. Hmm... OKAY MY GUESS IS VIA NAPOLI.
Yes, yes it is.

HAHAHA if you had those I would die laughing. Like, a little sign above them, "Marissa's Norway Trolls"... that would actually make my year.

Yeaaah, so cute! I love it. Matt and Bruce, forever!

Ooooh, I like your thinking... buuuut I'm not telling. Mwahaha.

Ah Norway. Every time I read about it, I think back to your "Norway, more like No-way" report. I haven't been on that ride since I was 15 and really, it was not that great. But I was 15, so I clearly couldn't appreciate all it had to offer! Side note: do you remember those troll dolls that were really popular in the late 80's/early 90's? I probably had about 20 of them. (have I mentioned how super cool i was, yet?) But if they had looked like the ones sold in the Norway pavilion, I'm thinking they wouldn't have been as popular! Also, that little kid's face is super creepy and not on his body right, I think?

I know I made a huge deal about it on twitter, but I still love the fact that the CM wished Matt and Bruce a happy anniversary and they just rolled with it! Love it!

Mmm, Epcot food. Man, I'm hungry now!

And I think you are headed to... Hollywood Studios?
Haha yay! Mexico is just wonderful. I could just sit in there for an hour and be happy. That's so sad you couldn't really visit though! Next trip!

Hahaha I'm glad you go back to that TR title, it still cracks me up! We love Maelstrom just for being so over the top absurd! It's great. Haha I definitely had my share of little trolls, for sure! But yes, the ones in Norway were mega creepy and were staring at me.

Yeah, I loved that, too! Like, good for all of you... but it was still really funny just because I can picture them just not knowing how to respond, but then shrugged and said thanks, hahaha.

I KNOW, I'm starving right now and all I want is something from Epcot. WAH.

WE WILL SEEEEE. MWAHAHA.

It is so gorgeous inside, I adore it!

Man, me too. I wish there was a way I could just snap my fingers and a little serving of School Bread would just pop up on my desk. That would be delightful.

IT IS SO GOOD! I love it so much. I just had no clue it existed until I started hanging out on the DIS like a cool kid back in the day. And now it is my favorite snack everrrr.

Hahaha I would probably just sit there and laugh and then be banned from riding it ever again for being that drunk girl who sat and laughed at the mural for too long.

Haha aww, I'm sorry you're not feeling well! That is never ever fun. What a bummer.

Stacey is the bombdotcom... in her own special way. I think her job would be amazing, seriously. BUT DON'T WORRY! They haven't changed the music, thank goodness! Well, the main theme I mean anyway.

Hahaha our friends were very good sports! They definitely went along with our ridiculousness... which is why they are our best friends!

HAHAHA I loved your story! That is so amazing, seriously. Both hilarious but also wonderful to hear. I love Disney so much!

Don't ever worry about hijacking, I don't mind, I swear!

Haha it was pretty awesome. I am guessing it was number 1 since they figured out pretty quickly what was going on and started giggling about it as soon as they saw Amy and me. Too amazing. But I also love Disney respecting all sorts of anniversaries!

Hahaha, I have validated that you are NOT crazy and now your can tell your family! It was super funny because right when we walked in, it was that main theme, so I was like.. YUP definitely LOTR! And yes, I totally thought of you because I'm a LOTR fan and thought that was such an awesome catch on your part!!

Haha it was so cute and they were giggling but it also made me happy!

Bahaha, it's okay, you can just put it in the mail now, no big whoop!

School Bread. Nom. End of story.

He is such a terrible human being, that little child. Why does he get such joy out of killing the poor fish? The world may never know.

HAHAHA I love that you know what I'm talking about. And TRUE STORY. Last week I was working from home because I wasn't feeling well and for whatever reason left GSN on all day. Anyway, they were playing Hoveround commercials all day long! So I know what you are talking about, haha. I hope you one day reenact that scene at the Grand Canyon, just because.

Psh no side-eyes from this girl; I mean, I AM the one who called Segways Hoverounds.

Haha we were all laughing pretty hard! It was so cute though.

Yeah, I wouldn't mind going for a stroll around World Showcase right about now!

HAHAHA you know what's funny? Whenever we go to Safeway and use my Safeway card, they call Matt Mr. [my maiden name]! I haven't changed my last name on my Safeway card, because I don't even know how/don't bother, but that always makes me laugh whenever we pay, hahaha.

We spent a lot more time in Epcot this year than previous years and it was amazing! You totally should, there's so much to explore and see there. I find something new every trip!

I get so ridiculously giddy when you update!
I have been in love with the Mexico pavilion since childhood. It's just gorgeous. Plus, you're outside while inside....mind blown.
I have noticed that most people have no idea that you can go inside of the stave church. All I can think of when I see the fish gutting boy now is how happy he is. I point it out to people, haha.

OMG TRAPPER DONALD IS SO CUTE. Look at his furry little bum! So cute. I have such love in my heart for that duck.

Hoverounddddd...ound...ounddd
That is such a cute story about Matt & Bruce. Awesomeness all around. I just love WDW.

I have no idea what's to come.. A classic for lunch? Sunshine Seasons.
Next park HAS to be MK. It's Amy's first day ever in WDW!

Aww yay! Have I mentioned yet how happy I am that you're back on the DIS? Because I don't think I've made that clear at all.

Mexico is just wonderful. I love staring at the volcano. Mind IS blown.

Haha, yeah, I mean, I never go in there and see many others hanging out in the church. But I just loved listening to the LOTR music while the scary viking stared at me.

Fish gutting boy is just so ridiculous. He's become one of my favorite parts of Maelstrom!

He was adorable and the big reason we wanted to do that meet! But it just wasn't in the cards that morning unfortunately. You and Matt share a love for Donald! I got ridiculously adorable video of Chip and Dale though that morning.

Hoveround.. Hahaha I love that you just did the echo.

Yeah, pretty much how I felt. Super cute and pretty hilarious.

Ummm, yeeaaahhh. I think you may be onto something with that prediction.

Hi guys! I just wanted to take a quick little interlude because I have to share this with you all.

I had a not-so-fun day today, and when Matt and I got home from work, I ran upstairs to change into my PJs while Matt checked the mail. He came inside with a package and told me I needed to open it. It was addressed to both of us, and I had no idea who it was from... But with the Mickey ears on our names, I suspected it was from a DIS friend...

I opened the package and found a card on top!



(Yes, notice the awesome Mexico pavilion shirt I am wearing. )

I opened it up, and it was from the lovely Jen, aka FantasylandMom on the DIS, and her family! I blocked out their last name, but everyone in the fam signed the amazing card! It has Tinkerbell on the front, and says, "A friend like you... makes my world a whole lot brighter!"



Oh, but it gets better, because there were folded up colored in Disney drawings, one from each of Jen's kids!

Julia:



Can we just note the Mickey ears on top of the I in Dani?

Brynn:



Brynn is a pro-colorer. Seriously!

Sawyer:



Sawyer has some darn good coloring chops himself!

After basically squealing over the adorable Disney drawings, we immediately hung them up on our fridge!



We got into the rest of the package and came across some delightful Disney goodies, including a cute pop with Goofy and Mickey on it, Disney ring pops, an awesome plaque with a fantastic Walt Disney quote (which is going on Matt's desk at work), AND a Mickey Waffle-scented candle!!



We clearly need a close up of this Mickey Waffle candle..



UM YUP! Talk about the best surprise gift to get in the mail.

It brightened my day and then some. And clearly this wonderful surprise deserved its own update!!

I am reminded daily of how blessed I am to have met so many amazing people through the DIS, twitter, and instagram... and it's all because of Disney.

I started writing my TRs in hopes of connecting with others with similar enthusiasm for Disney parks and sharing my adventures in my favorite place in the world... and I've gained some amazing friends who I would never have met if I hadn't joined this forum.

So thank you guys for being wonderful people. While I haven't met some of you in person yet, I look forward to it in the future!

Okay, I promise a new update here tomorrow morning, but I just had to share this wonderful surprise with you guys!

Continued in next post

Oh how sweet!!

Seriously, when I joined the dis I really just thought I was finding a place for tons of Disney information... Little did I know that I would find a community that is so welcoming... Especially in the TR community, and I haven't even ever written one! I haven't met anyone from here yet IRL, but I can't wait to!

Such a great way to end a yucky day!
