We got up early (no need to waste any time!)...we are at Disney World!
We headed to the concierge lounge for a light breakfast. OH MY! What a wonderful way to start the morning. It was more than I imagined it would be...there were cheeses and cold meats, sweet breads and danishes, a spread of all kinds of fruit, yogurt and cereals. There were all kinds of juices, coffees and teas...and there wasn't a plastic bowl or spoon in sight!
We enjoyed our breakfast as we looked out the window to the lagoon. It was the perfect way to start the day!

We met Joey in the lobby and headed out to the SUV...it was a Suburban, that was roomy enough for us all. We drove over to MGM to spend most of the day there. We were about to discover just how fabulous Joey was at his job! See while we had certain times and places that were scheduled in, Joey had taken the time to listen to many of the things that we wanted to do and see...and then he made sure that everything happened! It really was amazing! I feel like sometimes we would just think something or mention it in casual conversation and Joey would make sure that it happened! We learned very quickly that Joey knew the place way better than we did and we just let him do his thing!

I'm enjoying this so much! Thanks for sharing it all.

The way you are sharing it; slowly, a little at a time, is making it even more suspenseful. You're teasing us!!

Well, we get there and head right in by the Rock N Roller coaster! We head over to the Tower of Terror...it will be DS's first time! DD says "not this time", so we wait until DH and DS finish and then we head over to the Rock 'N Roller coaster. This will be DD first time and her first big coaster. We go through fast pass so that she can see the movie and get the whole story. We ride and WOOHOO! She loves it!




Next we head over to Star Tours...the guys were talking about this ride at dinner the night before! DH and DS are HUGE Star Wars fans!!!

So we head over to the ride and a CM stops us right before we go in. He greets us with a big "Hey, It's the Spanglers! We are so glad that you are here!" He asks us to wait there for just a minute and then they'll get us in. We wait for a moment and then they walk us through a little walkway...with DS and DH in the lead...they walk right into and a few of his troopers...AAHHHHH!




Are you kidding me? Joey was right on with this one!!! This is what I meant when I said Joey listened and then would just make really cool things happen! DS had a perma grin for the rest of the afternoon! I couldn't believe this...

So after Star Tours, we head over to Indiana Jones...of course, VIP seating...



Funny story with this one...when we were talking the night before about going to this show, Ashley stated that she would never want to sit in the front row of that show because it would be too hot when things exploded. Joey said, "Well, how about the 2nd?" She said "No, I think it would be hot in the 2nd row too." That was all that said...Guess where we sat? In the 3rd row... As we were seated, DD looks at me and says, "And he has a sense of humor too!"

After Indiana Jones, we head to the Primetime 50's Cafe...

[

We've never been here before and as "Aunt Claire" plops down beside DS and starts asking him where he's been...he just starts cracking up...then she tells him it's a good thing he already took off his hat!!! The meal was a blast! At this point, we trust Joey to do whatever and this choice didn't let us down! The kids loved this lunch...it was just so much fun! They loved it when Aunt Claire put a Little Mermaid bib on Joey!

We head over to Beauty and the Beast...we've never seen it before...again VIP seating in the front! I loved it!!! It brought tears to my eyes...the costumes were so beautiful, the dances so wonderfully choreographed, and the beast scene was so moving! I am so glad that we didn't miss it. Joey had a way of getting everything in that we wanted to do...

We went and did some of other favorites...the Great Movie Ride, the Muppets, and some shopping. But we needed to head over to the MK for a little meeting about some of the things that would be happening on Wednesday...so we leave MGM and take off for the MK.

We were at WDW when you were and I recognized you from your photos. I think this may have been when we saw you. We ate at Prime Time and had Auntie Claire as our waitress. I think we were at the table next to you!
