Oh, I think you're on to something. I could enjoy that ride. That's cool you saw your kids, what are the chances of that happening again?

Life is what happens in between trips to WDW
Those "flying cookies" flying through space can be seen
I'm hoping that the little guy likes them!

That's kinda like the people who stop in the middle of the row, ignoring the instructions to go all the way to the end! We just climb over them and keep on goin!

Dawn...yes, many other countries do not have the concept of queuing . In fact...I have friends who have visited some of the 'other' Disney Parks (outside of the US) and have come home disappointed about how other cultures push and shove to get to the characters. Lets just hope that the people you encountered where just confused about how queuing works here.

$900 for a Mickey watch After you left, did you want the watch you saw?

That's why even though I'm only about 2 hours from DLParis I don't want to go

Sounds like a great day, love what Erin said on POC and so pleased the little kid quietened down!!!!

Melinda how cool you got to see your kids get on SM and can I assume you were at CP?

We "rednecked" all of our ride pictures! At the Buzz ride, the CM even gave us tips on how to get it to turn out better! She said to turn off the flash. It worked!

what a great idea! i'm so doing that next time. just walk right past them. i hate that they don't keep going. it's usually a 3-D show.....there aren't any bad seats, people!!!

i already told you about the situation with the TTA on your TR. it's a must- do for me now!

ugh.....makes me not want to go to DLP now! i don't do well with rude people and pushing and such. evil dawn comes out and she's not pretty.

nope, didn't even think twice about it. i don't mind spending $75 on a watch, but i have to really want it and i just didn't.

I was very hesitant when purchasing my 75.00 watch. But I love it and am enjoying every penny I spent on it. I don't often spend any money on myself. Plus my cheap watch died 2 days before our trip.

I love the crystal palace. I hope you did.

when i left you we were on our way to meet erin in front of CP. we made our way through the swarms in front of the restaurant up to the check-in window thing and were given our buzzer. when i turned around after tara had checked in who do i run into but my mom's neighbor!!! of all the places to see him! he asked where ray was and i explained this was an all-girls trip. we chatted for a few minutes, then me and the girls found a seat on a wall near the ramp going up to CP. i called my mom and told her who i had just seen......she was overly-amused - i think she had had a few drinks! she's a lightweight and was playing cards with her friends!!!

we people watched for awhile and ended up waiting a few minutes more than we had expected to wait. we finally got buzzed and went inside. the hostest made a big fuss about erin's birthday pin, seated us and returned with this for our table.....



here's erin sporting a piece of mickey confetti....



we were seated in one of those half-booth, half-tables in the middle section on the right side of the restaurant. tara had the pleasure of sitting next to a little boy who wouldn't sit down in his seat the entire meal and was standing/sitting practically ON TOP of her, then would CRAWL OVER her every 2 minutes. it was fun! the hostess explained how the characters/buffet worked and before our server even made it to our table, we had a visit from a chubby little bear....





he was so cute! shy, but cute.

our server (stephan, i think) got our drink orders and we made our way to the buffet. this is my first plate....



clockwise from bottom, salad with blue cheese and peppers, cous cous, dinner roll with some sort of basil butter, pasta salad.

my favorites were the butter for the roll and the pasta salad. the cous cous was good except it had chick peas in it and....well, just gag!

here's my second plate.....



clockwise from bottom, salmon, mahi mahi, prime rib, some sort of corn casserole thing, mashed potatoes, broccoli, veggies and some sort of pasta with mushrooms in the middle.

my favorites were the salmon (to die for!!!), the potatoes and the broccoli. whatever seasoning they put on the broccoli is very yummy. i have to say the mahi mahi was very dry though.

as soon as i got back to the table with my second plate they started the parade thing......





then we got a visit by tigger!!!



he was sooooooo cool! i'm not a big tigger fan, but this guy was so much fun. when erin asked him to bounce, he did and i said something like, "it looks like he's raising the roof," to which he responded with actually raising the roof! =

during dinner erin, tara and i tried to guess if the people in the character costumes were male or female. the consensus (i think) was that tigger was a male and eeyore and piglet were females. we couldn't decide on pooh. yes, we are dorks.

after tigger we met eeyore. i think erin asked if he was sad today and he just kinda shrugged his shoulders.



next came piglet. we got NUMEROUS kisses from piglet......so sweet!



just when erin thought piglet was walking away, piglet turned around and got back behind erin and kissed her in the ear. this scared erin so bad she almost jumped out of her seat! piglet turned around one more time and i thought he (or she?) was gonna do it again, so i snapped a picture. but he (she?) was just waving at me.



after the characters we rolled ourselves to the dessert bar. i think i got some tiramisu, some other kind of whiskey cake and some fruit. i don't remember....too much food! oh, and i forgot to take a pic....sorry.

just when we were all ready to go (read: take a nap to digest all this food!) our server showed up with a little birthday treat for erin.....



i don't even think we ate it because we were so full! but she did get a cool little card from the pooh gang!



next up....evening at MK with spectro and wishes......and three very tired girls!
