Sounds like a great day! I would love to be able to go in early May. But alas, I'm one of those moms that won't pull my kiddos out of school.

Thanks Steph for letting us know the pic was labeled.

Where's the Columbia Harbour House? I wrote on my folder to eat a tuna sandwich there but will have to look up the location. Do they have shrimps?

School here is done earlier than some places so everyone here was out of school, but I know they were still in school in Florida still.

Columbia Harbour House is right across from the Haunted Mansion. Cross under that bridge from Fantasy Land and it's the first thing on your left. No shrimps though.

Day 1 Ct'd

Well, while I'm sitting here bedridden with back pain, I don't see any other way to spend it but to update my trip report! Yay! My bananas are actually dancing!

Moving on....

I'm not going to lie. The night we arrived, Wednesday night, Ladle and I did not get very much sleep. Jet lag didn't set in that night and the time change was our enemy. Let me tell you when jet lag did set in though... As soon as we got back to our room on Thursday and decided we'd lay down "just for a few minutes." Those are dangerous words, my friends, very dangerous.

So...

A couple ::ahem:: hours later... Ladle and I decide to take showers because we felt gross from walking around all morning. We had ADRs at Alfredo's for 7:00pm that evening and if we hadn't slept so long, we could have gotten to Epcot early, gotten some Fast Passes and made it an efficient evening, but... We decided it was okay because that extra sleep would make us much happier people later on.

Everyone got ready and we headed to Epcot, arriving around 6:30pm. All the Fast Passes for Soarin' were, of course, already distributed. We went over to Test Track and found there were FPs available for 8:00-9:00pm, so basically the last hour the park was going to be open. That was perfect for us. Eat some food and catch a last ride of Test Track. Sounds like a good plan, right?

Here are some pictures of Italy. I'm not sure why they're so weird, but I think I was too tired or something... Anyway, here they are nonetheless.



So we head over to Italy for one final meal at Alfredo's as it will be closing August 31st. This is very strategic planning as Alfredo's is a very filling meal. It seems as times goes by on our trip, we get more and more full and want to eat less and less. We would not want to waste Alfredo's on one of our last days when we're sick of rich and filling food. That is why Alfredo's was our Day 1 pick. (In case any of you are interested, we were not on the dining plan. Usually it doesn't work for us as we like more than one table service some days and definitely at least one table service everyday, but this trip it just might have. Oh well, maybe another time.)

I think our dinner at Alfredo's was a little feast in itself. Of course, it began with some very tasty bread rolls dipped in olive oil which was speckled with pepper for taste. Garco and Sally Shine split a tomato and mozzarella salad which I heard was quite tasty. They each got an appetizer portion of fettuccine alfredo while Ladle and I split an entree portion of the fettuccine alfredo.

Man that pasta is good! Excuse me while I wipe the drool from my mouth...

I have never had fettuccine alfredo so tasty except at Alfredo's. If you haven't been, I would recommend it before it closes, if for no other reason than to have you try to the pasta they are known for. Now, what would a visit to an Italian restaurant be without a cannoli? Of course, to get dessert at Alfredo's means planning your meal very carefully. For me, it also meant not finishing all my pasta which was hard I must say. Now, I implore you, what would a cannoli be without a cafe latte? Well, it would still be good, but doesn't that just sound perfect... I'll have a cafe latte and a cannoli.

I actually only recently became familiar with these amazing desserts. It's like a fried outside with a cream inside, sometimes with chocolate chips. Mmm...

Well, here's where one of those "tense" moments I talked about happened. Conversation got a little heated at the table and let's just say we did not all go back to the hotel together. That also meant that our TT FPs went to waste. So.... good food, tense moments, silent ride back. That just about sums up that evening... But never fear, with the rising sun comes a renewed spirit.

What was that big line of people for?

Hey! Tense moments! We want the whole TR. What was the fight about? It was so bad you wasted good fast passes?

Hope the family harmony gets better from here.

Okay, okay, you caught me. Those Italy pictures are NOT actually from the day we ate at Alfredo's. I'm ashamed... If you look really closely though, you can see Garco with his video camera... I'll tell you all about the line later in the report.

The fight.... Well, let's just say SOMEONE does not have a good grasp of how many text messages they use a month and racked up many dollars over the regular bill. Retract those pointing fingers! It's not me!

Yes... That would be the logical thing to do wouldn't it? However, when one texts at the dinner table, it does jaunt one's memory of such giant overages...

Now I can't wait to hear about the line! I see Garco now pointing his video camera right at ya. Oh no, text messaging can be expensive. I have the unlimited to other Verizon customers but I know they sell the unlimited to everyone now. That's a good deal if you text message a lot. I plan on switching to Cingular though and hope they will offer the unlimited to anyone before we switch.

One of the moms from preschool was telling me how Verizon didn't set their account up right (they did the same to ours but we didn't use much texting the first month so it wasn't a huge thing) and her DH didn't have the $5 unlimited to other Verizon Customers but her line did. He racked up $65 that month in texting and Verizon refused to fix it. One of the reasons on my list of reasons to switch to AT&T.

Yes, if I were one to commit such overages I don't think I would proceed in the wrong doing in front of the parental units.

Oh don't worry about it. I don't mind at all. It's interesting to hear what other's think. And, just so you know, if it had been up to me, it wouldn't have been discussed at all, but, it had nothing to do with me, so it was out of my hands.
