Hey Jamal - great pictures! We got to do the same thing when we were there in January. We didn't include it in our reports cause we were told it was a special thing and not to tell anyone! I'll post our picture over on the CB. But that was one of the most awesome moments we've ever had! Glad to know someone else has done this so we can gab about it!

Blessings!

Jamal, your report is too cute! So is your haircut. I really might print off a pic of you and show it to the girl who cuts my hair.

See, you never know where these TRs might lead.

Also, I don't feel so bad taking two posts to cover one day on my Trip Report when it's taking you, what, 5 so far for March 24?

It's super! Keep at it.

Hi Jamal! Finallyfinallyfinally I got a chance to read your report. Love it! How awesome to get to travel in richy rich mode, and to be with your good friends. I'm with the rest of your fan club -- don't rush it, but see if you can post up another quality installment ASAP!

The last installment and pics were.... WOW. How great was that?

The group shot is incredible. I would blow that up poster size and wallpaper my bathroom.

Can't wait for more.

Awesome report continues! That shot of the group is so awesome.

Now about that "lady" (and I use the term loosely)...just scary, darn scary!

Mee tooo! I love it. I used to be short, but grew it out a few years ago. You may just have inspired me enough!

I am soooo glad I took pictures and wrote this trip report so you fine people could get hairdo ideas.

The CookMaster (on the left with Belle) is the one with the better hair and coined the term zesty for the cut. I've always had short hair and have gone to her hairguy for 4 years, but hers is still the standard.

OK, back to Dis. I am happy you like our little tale and pictures. I will try to get another chapter done today! To quote an idol, this will be endless!!

Subscribing...

Wow, there are some really great trip reports going on, ALL at the same time. At this rate, I will never be caught up on Laundry.

You are doing a great job!

My DD had a kindergarten teacher who used to say, "You get what you get and you don't get upset"

BTW, the lady in the short skirt was ME. I really thought I looked good that day!
I AM SOOOO KIDDING !!!!

DAY 3, March 25

DH is a liar. “I’m getting up! I’m making the coffee while you shower.” He did neither. He got up late then stunk up the bathroom. He is on my List!!!

We had a hot plan for EPCOT and arrived in short order (hence the cookie-eating time at the gate). The CookM and I were once again FastPass designees, chicken-runners or not. We FPed Test Track and walked walked walked to Soarin where we all rode Puddy. We had some rude front row sitters who would NOT MOVE ALL THE WAY TO THE END OF THE ROW-I will NEVER understand this-but it was a beautiful flight. This is my type of vacation!! I love it!

I want you to know I did something I never thought I’d do. I did it for Mel and all of you. I felt I owed it to Mel for all the entertainment she has given me.

I rode Gary.

I hate to spin. I hate nausea. I hate the teacups.

I liked the pre-mission. I even liked the liftoff. I had listened and knew not to close my eyes or turn my head from the screen. After the liftoff, though, I was ALL DONE and focused on not barfing in DHs lap. I made it, but that thing is Mission: Disorientation. Mission: Vomit. Mission: Puke. OK, enough.

We had a much better time on Test Track. We all love that ride! It is E’s very favorite. In the dump shop he begged me to buy the same toy we bought there three years ago that he played with for exactly one week. No sir.

The CookMaster’s family had lunch plans with her brother who happened to be at Disney at the same time. So we parted ways for a few hours. But Dude! We did Crush! That is awesome, dude!! We also enjoyed lunch at Cantina de San Angel, did Innoventions (much better than DQ to us), and rode Figment.

We headed to Spaceship Earth to ride the golf ball before heading back to the hotel. But the golf ball let us down…slowly. It broke…excuse me, went down… while we were at the top. That’s where I took my nap (I can sleep ANYWHERE!) as the speakers shouted “Please remain in your seats.” Over and over and over. After 45 mins
we walked down 100,000 steps to exit and barely made it back to the Poly in time to leave for ….Cirque de Soleil!!

Cledus very kindly offered to spring for a cab to Cirque. The CookMaster had it all arranged with the bellmen and we expected to hop in a van-cab. Well, it turned into the Fare Feuders as another cab (bell services had called one and we tried to take a standby as we didn’t know another was coming) pulled up. These two drivers argued outside the cab and tried to pull a fast one on us so they could each have a fare: Oh, come on, split up You’ll be more comfortable. No? Well, we’re not supposed to take eight (no problem minutes before). The CookMaster and Cledus decided –and we all agreed- to FOR-GET it (as she says) and we walked over to the bus stop. The Fare Feuders looked stumped, tried to sweet talk Cledus—that wasn’t happening—and ended up with the big nothing they deserved! The bus got us there in plenty of time and Cirque was fabulous! We are still talking about how it was the greatest thing any of us have ever seen. Go. It’s worth it. E wants the job of the tiny circus bike rider. He thinks the hardest part of that job would be keeping his hat on his head.

We ended Day 3 at Ohana for a yummy dinner and to watch Wishes again. Here we are up close for all you hairdo fans:



Fights: 3, including one each within The Fixer and Gatelatch marriages
Meltdowns: only 1!

Day 4—Animal Kingdom!!

Sunday was another cold one so we donned our same old clothes as our shorts and tees languished in the resort closets. We didn’t care, though, as we were off to ride Yeti!!



At breakfast, we had asked the boys to consider where we have seen God on this vacation. E’s first answer was the turtles (and apparently Crush) in Living Seas. They also mentioned kindness, happiness, and joy. Yes, we agreed, He is everywhere.

Our AK plan was to go through Asia (good plan) to get to EE first. All eight of us loved every minute of it! That is one cool trick! I could have done the Yeti all day!! It’s a sight to behold in the park, too:



After that we did Safari where DH took his usual 100,000 pictures, including this beauty of a beast:



He looks just like Aslan to me!!

About that time the CookMaster/Magician received another call from her CM friend. Could we be at 2:00 Lion King show??????? More surprises on the way! You bet!! We’re there, buddy! NEXT chapter: http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...5&postcount=69

That is a beauty of the Beast- Wow.

Jamal-love the great shots you all take. Your boys are adorable. They look so much like you! How does that happen?

Love your clever style, and I have to say you and the cookmaster do have fabulous hair!
