yay I'm glad you are liking the WL pics. It was beautiful, I couldn't be happier that we decided to stay there. Even seeing how beautiful other resorts were, like the Grand Floridian and Polynesian, the WL was just so our style, and I loved the winter feel because we live in Georgia and don't get much of a winter!
Thanks for reading!

Sounds like it was the perfect ending to a perfect day!
Thanks, I'm glad you're enjoying it, I'm trying to be very detailed, I like TRs that are that way too.
And yes, the very best moments were when we were just relaxing and taking it all in, which is something I've never really done before! I now know how to do Disney in a diffferent way!

Love the Fantasmic pics! Made me feel like I was right there. Seems like there really isn't a bad seat to watch it!

Yep, Trail's End still looks as yummy as I remember it!

Wednesday December 12th

This morning again I was UP and READY without the help of an alarm clock. Who needs alarm clocks when you're in DISNEY??!!!!


We had plans to go to Epcot for the morning and then head to Magic Kingdom later in the day for our Crystal Palace ADR at 7:10. My memory is getting a little foggy but I'm pretty sure we just rode the bus to Epcot that day. Usually we opted for the longer, more fun route...riding the boat to the Contemporary or MK and then monorail, but I am pretty sure we just decided to get there fast, so off to the bus we went!

We started in Futureworld, planned on doing that side of the part that day and then coming back later in the week for World Showcase. We rode Nemo first, I LOVE that ride. It's just so cute, and I love seeing all the fish. I was telling DH about what the Seas used to be...back when it was just called The Living Seas. I can remember riding in those “hydrolators” when I was a kid, and being scared for some reason. I was telling him about the old ride that basically was just a car that rode around through the tanks.
Anyway, after the ride we walked around some, and checked out the manatees for awhile, and the other tanks upstairs.









We looked into seeing Turtle Talk, but it had just started and we didn't feel like waiting around for it. We had an ADR later that week at Coral Reef so I knew we'd be back!

Then we headed to The Land. We checked out the time for Soarin', I wasn't planning on riding but DH really wanted to. It was some ridiculous wait, and the FP time was for late in the afternoon and we knew we'd be gone. Oh well, we'd try later in the week. There was practically no wait for Living with the Land, so we went on that, DH really enjoyed this ride before. We're both those weirdo educational lovers, so this is the kind of stuff we like.











So after that we decided to go ahead and eat lunch a little early, so we'd be hungry for our ADR that night, since it was a bit earlier than we were used to eating. We wanted to eat at Sunshine Seasons anyway, because IMO it's the best CS in Futureworld, and one of my favorites period.



We both got sandwiches, I got the Black Forest Ham and DH got the Turkey and Muenster.
He got some peanut butter and chocolate cake thing, and I wanted to get the strawberry shortcake from the bakery. Well when we went over there, one of the ladies working was trying to tell one of the younger guys there what we was supposed to do when he saw our pins. He was being kind of obnoxious, and it was kinda weird, but she finally told him to leave and she gave us two free chocolate chip cookies as congratulations. It was very sweet, but we felt awkward. Anyway. We found a table over by the stairs, and sat down to relax. It was all very good, I only ate about half my sandwich because I LOVE the strawberry shortcake there, its so fresh, YUM. We put the cookies in the bag for later, and headed out.

My food..





DH's





free cookies!



We went to Journey into Imagination, because no matter how lame that ride seems now, I don't care, I love it. I had a plush Figment when I was a kid that I LOVED. I miss the old ride, but the new one is ok. We HAD to play around with the picture things after the ride, here is a picture DH took of me emailing it to our families, dont really know why...



and here is our picture!!



We then headed over the Ellen's Energy ride, I love it too. This was new for DH, and he really enjoyed it. He even mentioned wanting to ride it again later. Cool with me!!!!

By this time it was probably around 2 or so and we decided to head out, and hang out at the MK for awhile.

cont...

Took this on the way out...



We headed out to the monorail, didn't have to wait too long for it.

Andy waiting on the monorail



one last look...I was bored, so I just took pictures...



Finally we got to the MK!



We walked slower down Main Street this time, walked in some of the shops.

I loved this in one of the windows..



We kept seeing one set of Christmas decorations, the Victorian looking Mickey and Minnie stuff, and we decided we would get one of the figurines with Mickey holding the mistletoe over him and Minnie. We just wanted to wait until later, so we wouldn't have to carry it around all day. I really wanted the stockings, but all they had anywhere was Minnie. I NEVER saw a Mickey one. So I don't know what's up with that.



We headed towards Adventureland, and walked right towards the Dole Whip stand! So, we had to have one. YUMMMM. We just split a Dole whip float, using one of our snack credits. We found a table nearby and sat and relaxed a bit. I love that, just relaxing and taking it all in. ah.



From there we went on Pirates of the Carribean, one of our favorites. Well, first we walked past the Jungle Cruise and the line was ridiculous so we said forget it for now. The line for Pirates wasn't too long, but here we encountered some of those RUDE people. Families who kept trying to just push past people, and skip to the front of the line. And like I said, it wasn't even that long. Ugh. We just shook our heads at how rude people can be. I LOVE this ride, especially the new part at the beginning, going through the mist. And I hate to say it, but I haven't actually seen any of the movies so I don't know the names of the characters, well, Jack Sparrow of course. We totally meant to rent at least the first one before we went but time got away and we never did. Anwyay....LOVED the ride.

After that we pretty much high tailed it over to Haunted Mansion. Have I mentioned it's my FAVORITE???????!!!

On the way over I took this picture of the married man...I had to picture msg this to some of our friends as well.



LOVED the ride, of course. I can't get enough of the HM!

By this time it was starting to get dark, and I wanted to ride the Liberty Square Riverboat, I hadn't done it since I was a kid. We waited for it for maybe 10 minutes, and I just took some pictures of how cool the Haunted Mansion looked from there.







I LOVE the MK at night, with the lights and everything. Its just awesome. When the boat got there we went down on the bottom, to the front where there was a bench. It was getting a bit chilly and thank goodness I'd thought to put a long sleeve tshirt in the Baggallini. We just enjoyed the slow moving ride, and I took more pictures, esp when we came around back to the Haunted Mansion. When we got off the ride it was getting close to our ADR time, so we decided to just walk slowly up there and check in a little early.

Next up...our dinner with Pooh and WISHES!!
