Day 4, continued

After we were rolled out of… uh, I mean left Liberty Tree Tavern, we saw the man during the profile portraits right there in Liberty Square and decided to have ours done. We asked the artist if he could also cut a diamond ring shape into the paper, since we had just gotten engaged on the trip, and he laughed and said that that was a new request for him, but that he would try. We each posed for a short time and before we knew it he was all done. It’s funny the people that will just stand and watch you sitting there posing. One funny couple stopped, and the girl REALLY wanted to have this done, but her boyfriend definitely thought otherwise and wanted no part of it, haha. Anyway, we ended up buying four copies – one for each of our moms, one for us, and one for the scrapbook. This ended up costing $34.08 – we didn’t buy the frames here.

We then did a little more shopping (got a t-shirt for Bill) and were trying to see the Hall of Presidents, since Bill really wanted to see it, but the timing just didn’t seem to work out. I know that we headed over to Tomorrowland and did a few attractions there – Buzz, Stitch’s Great Escape (which we did against my warning because Bill wanted to do “everything” – he later agreed with me that it was lame). We did Monsters Inc Laugh Floor and really enjoyed it – this was new to me. While we were in line we texted Bill’s joke to the phone number they give, and guess what – they used our joke in the show!

Because there’s a severe lack of photos in this part of the trip report, I’ll tell you our joke:

Q: What is big and grey and wears glass slippers?
A: Cinderelephant!

Yeah, I know, I know… pretty bad.

I don’t remember exactly what else we did this evening… I think we headed back to the resort pretty early and relaxed in the room. Bill headed out to explore the quiet pool that was close to our room (he pronounced it not that impressive, I could have told him THAT about the quiet pools!) and he went to the main building and brought me back some snacks.

We called it a night – it had been a wonderful, relaxing, watery day.

Up next: EPCOT, finally!

Loving your engagement story. Those fridge magnets your DF made are amazing - esp. since very few guys would ever think to do that. Looking forward to the rest.

I am loving your trip report! I got engaged at Disney World too- Tony's Town Square, my favorite restaurant. I wanted to let you know that they do make an engagement pin- or what we thought was an engagement pin. From what I remember, Minnie is sitting in a chair, and Mickey is down on one knee with a ring behind his back. We didn't get the pin when we got engaged- I actually made my dad get one when he went back down a month later!! I'll try to find a picture and post it later.

Rolled

Rolled out of Liberty Tree is exactly what we did! Who could leave one of those rolls or a last bite of mashed potatoes behind?

Looking forward to your next update.

Oh, well… next time! We paid cash for this meal – the breakfast for the two of us came to $40.45 and I paid for the picture package - $31.90. (We split this picture package as well as the one from Cinderella’s Royal Table later in the week with Tom and Jen, and since the CRT one is included, they paid us for half of the Chef Mickey package.)
Mickey can't afford a ring? Look at how much you paid for some eggs and sausage! MGM stood for .....Mickeys Got Millions!
