Having a dad who wanders, I can't imagine taking him to Disney! Can I borrow the "Waldo" reference? It would soooooo fit him!

I agree with another DIS-er...You are a saint!!!!

Can't wait for the rest!

LOVED the picture of you, EE and Minnie at PHD. We are really looking forward to that as my kids are PHD junkies! You guys look gorgeous and I am really enjoying your report! I wish you were able to post the ToT pix with Waldo, Nini and the eyes. I sounds like a riot!

Looking forward to your last day![/QUOTE]

Thanks! That is my fav pic, as you can see it's now a part of my siggy. PHD is really cute, they'll love it!
The ToT pic was GREAT... I was tempted to take a photo of the photo... but I'm not one of those people.

Yes, there are PLENTY to read. UM's alone should keep us all busy through the holidays! Thanks for reading!

Yeah, I loved the part about the kids hair. You lovingly snuggle up to your kids and then you say, "Good grief! You need a bath!" "Disney heat makes you stink!" Thankfully at this point my older kids can bathe and wash their own hair and my oldest even volunteers to bathe and wash baby sisters hair cause she thinks it's fun ....Hey, I take what I can get. It leaves me a little more time for other things...
Thanks! Minnie would love to bathe Little EE... however, I know she will try to drown him. It's one way I keep 'em babies, getting bathed by mama! With all the humidity, those kiddies reeked by days end! Little EE's shoes were downright STANKY! We no longer called them sandals... we just called them his stanks. We had to keep those bad boys on the lanai.

Okay, the Beverly Joe & Walt pics are super, especialy the Joe pic, he should be the symbol of the Beverly drink!
(My cooking must have really injured our family's tastebuds over the years, we thought Beverly was okay )
Oooh, can't wait to find out if Nini makes it back to the Poly without the aid of cellphone guidance & which DISer you encountered at Boma!
I'm first! I'm first!

Jean
You ARE first! I must say Little EE eats everything with gusto! It's really cute!
Joe hates that I posted that pic... muahahaha!

Thank you! I do think I deserve an award for dealing with this family! Although, it's still not as bad as poor sorul82's family! Now that woman needs to be nominated for sainthood. Peeps, go read that TR... it's a like a car accident that you just can't look away from!

We are staying at the Poly in January. I can't wait.

Day 5: Part II

I seriously need to get this little trippie done. I've no time to catch up on everyone elses TR!

Ok, so we leave Epcot and I'm feeling very sad. Have I mentioned that I really, really, really, love Epcot? We get back to the Poly and head up to the rooms, thinking Nini will be there relaxing, right? Wrong! She's not there and there's no sign she's been there and went to the pool or anything. We decide not to panick. She's got her phone, so she'll call if she needs us. We panic slightly, only because we know she's got no sense of direction and is easily turned around.
We peel off our clothes and jump into our swim suits and hit the pool. Today is Sunday, and there are a lot more ppl and the pool, then there has been all week. I don't understand why. Joe and I discuss this a come to the conclusion that most ppl travel on Saturday. Thus wanting to take it easy on their first full day of vacation. Right? No? I don't know. Sounded good at the time. Not so much now.

We're at the pool and here comes Miss Sassy in her swim suit. I ask Nini where have you been? "At Epcot." She says. Okay... not even going to ask. We hang out at the pool until 5pm. The Poly has this cute kiddie section with dancing water fountain spray thingy.

Yup, we got to hang out there for a good 30 mins. Not without my little cocktail, Little Miss Mai Tai or 2 or 3. My friends, the Mai Tai sisters. Back to the room to get purty for dinner.
We have 6:50 ADR's for Boma tonight. I'm really looking forward to this as I heard lots of great things about it. We decide to call a Taxi van to take us over. Joe calls the front desk and they arrange for the taxi service. We arrive at the AKL. We're ooooh-ing and ahhhhh-ing at the beautiful themeing of this hotel. It's really pretty cool looking. We go inside and more oooh and ahhhs from us. We head downstairs to Boma only to find a mob scene. We're early, but I get us checked in. We walk outside to check out the pool and such. It's really cool. I love how they made the pool look like a dirty river. And I mean that in the nicest way. Joe thinks it IS really dirty. Our buzzer goes off w/ in 10 mins and we head back. We're seated toward the back of the restaurant and our server is Barbara. She's great, she's Cuban and has that way about her, that you just like her right away. We take turns hitting the buffet. Oh me, oh my, the food is really different here. It's so delicious! The flavors are very exotic, but not too exotic to be unfamiliar. The spice combinations are different, but good. I'm enjoying my meal and just happen to look up and see a family of 4 being seated. The mama has a LGMHPC hanging from her purse. A disser! A disser! I jump up and realize, no one is at the table but me and the kiddies. I don't want to leave them, but I want to catch her before they start their meal. I make eye contact with Joe and give him the hurry up eyes. I grab a disness card from my backpack and head to their table. I ask the mama if she has a LGMHPC on her purse and she replys "Yes, I do." Well, I slap down my disness card and say "Hi, disser!" I have to hurry back to the table, so I quickly say, "I just wanted to say Hi! Have fun! Bye!" I leave her and tell Joe I just saw a disser... he gives me the ol . Whatever, Joe! You just don't have a lime bone in your body, do ya? I sope she find my TR, just like my other mystery disser from MK, cjnix.
Well, I'm ready for dessert. I've heard story after story about Zebra Domes. Do they have alcohol? Do they not have alcohol? I'll have to see for my self. I make a beeline for the Zebra Domes and sure enough, there's a sign that says "Contains Alcohol". Well, I have to question that. I ate like 20 of those little things and didn't feel a darn thing! Maybe those Mai Tais killed it, I don't know. We left Boma with very full bellies. May I suggest the pressed pot of coffee. It's really a nice way to finish off the meal.
We hit the AKL gift shop, of course. But I amazingly didn't make a purchase. I think it was the Zebra Domes, after all. We all decide to just take the bus back. We have to take it to MK and grab the monorail back to the Poly. Well, tonight is EMH at MK and the bus stop was crazy full. We stepped to the side and waited for the bus. I swear I felt like all eyes were on us. Was it because there are 7 brown faces in the sea of white faces? Or was it because we were the last ones to arrive and the ppl thought we were going to try to swoop in and steal their spot on the bus? I don't know, but it was funny.
I'm not even kidding, but the bus pulls up and passes everyone else and stops right infront of us. If looks could kill, there'd be 7 brown ppl dead at the AKL bus stops. We decide it's really not worth the hassel and grab a cab back to the Poly.
We arrive back at our rooms and see the envelope we are dreading hanging from our door knob....
Now, I'm really sad.
It's close to 9 pm now and we're not sure we want to go to the MK for EMH. Minnie says she's too tired and I'm thinking I have a lot of packing to do, since we have to get out luggage down to the resort airline check and our boarding passes by 7:30am tomorrow. AND, we have 8am ADR's for O'Hana w/ Lilo & Stitch. I thought that would be our last hoorah!
We decide to stay in and rest and get things together. We get the kids bathed and our bags ready for the morning.

The kids are out cold. It's been a very busy 5 days and it's finally caught up with them.
Tomorrow.... breakfast with some old friends and crazy ppl on the airplane.

Where's Waldo count: 1, and it's a doozy!

I think.... I think I'm sad that we are leaving tomorrow. I think this trip has really sparked a love for WDW. I think traveling with family is not always a good idea, but it's fun, most of the time. I think my gene pool is questionable. I think we'll be back next year!

I loved this installment. I didn't know the Poly had one of those kid fountain things. I'll have to look into that. Was Boma's good? We're planning on trying it the next time we go. Your son looks like he's sleeping with his feet on top of your daughter! That's so funny and the reason I don't like sleeping with one of my kids! She's outgrowing it though...

Great so far and can't wait to hear what happens next.

Ok I have to say this YOUR KIDS ARE ADORABLE!!! I'm such a sucker for brown eyes! No really they are beautiful! You are so blessed to have them! I love your TR! And I love that you have a wandering Waldo as well. My FIL is the same way he either wanders away or walkes the pace of a turtle! Can't wait to hear more!!

You've just described my mother! But I have to hand it to Waldo and Nini - I'm so impressed that they have the gumption to take off by themselves in the first place. Last night, I suggested to my mom that, since she's not a morning person, DS and I can head out early in the mornings and she can meet up with us at whichever park later. She was panic-stricken at the very idea of traversing WDW by herself!

I think , you have done a great job on your trip report! We got the brown people stares a lot to, I even heard one lady comment to her husband, "Did you hear how good they spoke English"

So are you already planning your next trip?

Girl, you are so funny!
I love it "the brown people stares"!

That's funny! "Did you hear how good they spoke English!" I would have died laughing if I heard that.

Yup, I've got the next trip going. We have an even larger group this next time. My brother decided to join us making us a group of 11. I've learned enough on this trip, though. I know splitting up and meeting for a meal later is the best policy!

Thanks for reading!
