Tinkerbern arrives

Happy New Year everyone…hope everybody has a happy, healthy and safe 2009!

When we left off, it was finally time to head to WS. I was really not feeling great and we happened to walk by one of those McDonald Fry stands. Hmmmm, something actually smelled good to me. So on our way into one of the great culinary festivals, I have to have McDonald’s fries. We get them without incident, however, right before we hit Canada we are stopped by a guy with a microphone and camera crew. They want to know if they could interview us. Being the camera shy person I am I immediately say “YES” before anyone else could say anything. They talk to DH and I and want to know why when headed into the F&WF we have McDonald’s fries???!! I think DH tried to say something, but I ended up taking over and for a few minutes actually forgot I had a fever and wanted to just curl up and sleep. See I just needed a camera in front of me and I would have been fine the whole trip

From what I remember, we (ok me) gave them some goofy answers about using the fries to help soak up all the wine we about to drink or something like that. We actually spent about ten minutes with them. However, and I blame the sickness for this, we forgot to ask why we were on camera. They did ask our names and where we were from on camera, but didn’t have us sign releases or anything (didn’t even look like they had any.) Anyone out there have any idea what they were shooting video for? I’d love to know.

Here’s where things start to get a little fuzzy. I actually don’t remember doing anything until we ended up in Germany. DFIL and I wanted to check out all the rooms, because we found out they are set up like someone’s house as if you were walking through it. Except that I
1-Forgot my cards that explained where to start
2 – Thought I might be going to the ER.
When we got to Germany, I let the group know I just had to sit for a minute…I was still in utter and complete denial that my body would turn on me this way…every bone just ached and my throat was killing me. I sat down and I think DH got scared…he begged me to go back to the room and just rest. I do remember be rather mean and snapping that I just need to sit and rest for a minute. DIL’s tried too, but I wasn’t going to listen to anyone.

I think I ended up on the curb for about 30 minutes and I may have even fallen asleep for a couple of minutes with my head in my hands I then decided I was all better (yeah right!) and that I could push on. DH was still trying to get me to go back to the room, but I think my fever and whatever else just made me even more stubborn and clouded my judgment and made me determined to go on. So we walk through Germany and as it turned out later had the rooms completely wrong! We did stop to take my tradition picture under the Teddy Bear


See the water bottle – I was never without one that whole day.


I think we then wandered a bit more and then it was time for dinner at LeCellier. I really, really wish I could remember more about this dinner, because as bad I was feeling, I do remember laughing a lot. We checked in about five minutes early and ended up with only a ten minute wait. We were seated and Amanda was our server. This was DIL’s first time at LeCellier and they were excited to try it.

Amanda was very prompt at coming to get our drink orders and explain the menu and with the yummy bread and butter.





Our drinks arrive (ok – their drinks and my pop), but by another server asking if we were ready to order or still needed time. Hmmmm – wasn’t sure if we were switched or what was happening. We let them know we still needed a few minutes. Amanda made it back shortly after to take our order. We gave it to her and all seemed normal. Amanda did ask my DFIL if that was all he wanted and he said yes. For some reason, even in my haze, I questioned whether he had ordered a dinner or just the soup. He said he ordered the whole thing. Ok – but I didn’t hear it. Ours appetizers arrived in a timely fashion and were again delivered by a different waitperson. Didn’t really matter, as we had our food and that was all that mattered.

We finish up with the appetizers, they are cleared and we are waiting for dinner. We notice Amanda running back and forth with a table next to us that had a large party and just happened to be obnoxiously loud. And I’m from a loud Italian house and this even made me go Hmmmmmmmm.

Our food comes (again in a timely fashion…didn’t feel rushed or slow at all) which was again served by someone different and three of us have food. DFIL has nothing. Uh-oh…Even in my cloud I was right…I didn’t hear him order anything besides soup and neither did Amanda.

Just a couple of minutes later Amanda eventually made it back by to apologize for her lack of attention and to check on us. DFIL said he had placed an order but didn’t get it. She had nothing written down and it was then pointed out to him, by us his loving family, that I didn’t hear him order either. Thankfully everyone had had a few drinks and were in great moods. Amanda again apologized took his order and promised to get it out right away. We all were having a great laugh about this at this point. When DH’s food came out we remembered to get a picture of it – the only one we did remember! I think it was Halibut.



Amanda also brought him a little surprise – a light up Tinkerbell. The best part was he actually wore it, and someone called him Tinkerbern...a takoff on his name. It set everyone off again into laughter.





Amanda eventually explained that the large party we had noticed next to us (you couldn’t help it…they were obnoxiously loud!) that as they were getting ready to leave, they got their bill, but then needed it all split up as some or all (can’t remember) were Cast Members. So it took a lot of time to get all that done. That’s why she kept having someone else cover us. She then brought DH and I champagne with a raspberry in it as she noticed our anniversary buttons – it was a nice touch.



Even with all the craziness and all different people taking care of us- it was really enjoyable. It could have been a disaster, but Amanda really had us covered even if she couldn’t personally take care of us. My DFIL even asked for an autograph to remember her by when we were leaving…and she happily obliged.



I think we must have thought about staying for Illuminations for about half a second, but I was ready to give up after dinner. It was time to go back and (for me) go to sleep!

We did try to get our “traditional” picture…it’s only traditional because we try every trip to recreate the first one…and we have yet to succeed.
The original picture - 1995:


2004 Version


2006 Version – we were waaaaay off


And finally the one from this year….we had the right place, just had the DIL’s reversed



Then just a couple of random ones on the way out as well…




We made it back to the AKL and this time I made DH switch sides with me so he could have the air blowing on him now . Tomorrow is DHS day and hopefully I’ll be all better and able to ride TSM!!! Well, at least it’s wishful thinking……

You know, I think the fries were just the fever talking... there's something about McD's fries that I find comforting when I'm sick... even the stomach flu seems to cry out for them... or maybe I'll just look for any excuse to eat fries?

Couldn't agree more...I also happen to crave White Castle Chicken sandwiches when I'm not feeling well....guess it's a good thing they didn't have a stand for that at Epcot

I went to school for this sort of thing and was doing theater at the age of three, but a camera in front of me and watch out Jo - any idea what they might have been shooting?

This is where things start to get shaky for a couple of days. If DH doesn’t jump in, the next couple parts will be short!!! BUT here’s what I do remember and it wasn’t pretty…..

I had a really rough night of sleep. Even though we had switched sides, I still had air blowing on me…not a good thing. This was also the night my fever FINALLY broke, which meant I went from melting to shivering for a couple of hours. When we finally did get up my throat was on FIRE!!! Now most sane level headed people at this point would have gone to seek a doctor. Well, I guess the sane level headed TyRy got left in Chicago, because this one sure wasn’t thinking straight.

So now I have a throat that’s killing me, a fever and the insane part of my brain has convinced the sane part that I’m still “only” catching a cold. (Side note here – I know what strep or other bad throat things feel like as I had strep at least twice a year growing up – this is why I know my brain was taken over by the crazy side ) Perhaps it was because this was our first trip “home”, or that I had been planning the trip for a year and a half, or that things must go perfect and not get away from my itinerary, or just the fact we were at Disney and I do NOT get sick at Disney. I grabbed tea for breakfast...ahhhh I can actually drink something. See, all will be ok, I won't dehydrate as long as drink hot tea with about a pound of sugar and 10 lemons (I'm not a big tea drinker.)

I ask DH to please take me to Walgreens so I could get some cold medicines. I had no idea that Walgreens was located in Georgia . Ok- maybe not that far, but it seemed like it took us forever to get there. I head right for the pharmacy counter, since I only buy the cold medicines with the Psedoblahblah in it….you know, the stuff all the meth users started buying to make meth and forced drug companies to change the formula to something that doesn’t work at all. And if it has Pseudblahblah in it, it’s behind the counter. I see my Tylenol Cold behind the pharmacy counter and rejoice …I will now get all better. I go up to ask for that and a behind the counter NyQuil. They grab the NyQuil but tell me they can’t sell me the Tylenol cold…WHAT!!!! I know they tried to explain to me why, but I was not paying attention…I think I was too busy begging for it anyway. DH finally comes over and I end up just getting the NyQuil, fine…I’ll just keep taking that. DH takes forever to buy whatever he wanted and we are finally back on our way from Georgia to AKL.

We are so close you can see the roof line of AKL and DH suddenly declares that he forgot some drinks he paid for at Walgreens. I’m really feeling horrible and just wanted to crawl back into bed. DMIL, who is with us, suggests dropping us off at the hotel, but DH decides not to. At this point I really debated pushing him out of the car and grabbing the wheel myself. Except I didn’t have the strength to do that, although I played it over and over in my mind for a bit . So it was back on that forever drive to get his Gatorades or whatever he bought and then finally back to AKL. They all went off to DHS, while some part of sane Ty took back over and I just stayed at the Lodge……

Hi TyRy!
I finally got all caught up on your TR and I'm loving it! I have found myself laughing out loud several times!

I am very glad to hear doing TiW saved you so much money versus the DDP. We are doing TiW for the first time on our trip in a few days. Then we will use it again in December with our trip back.

Loving all your pictures - esp those of DVC! I have heard the BWV REALLY need an update, and your review confirmed that again. DH and I want to stay there sometime, but I really think we will be disappointed until they get refurbed, esp compared to the beauty of AKV.

That is so neat how you ran into RachelTori and DisneyBride03! It's a small world, eh?

Looking forward to more - I hope you start to feel better soon, being sick on vacation STINKS. DH, DS and I were ALL sick on our November trip. But, I do have to say, it's better to be sick at Disney than sick at home!

ETA: The hand, and your comment about the hand, growing out of your FIL's head from SE made me laugh SO hard!!!!!! I am still giggling thinking of that picture....

I did the math backwards and forwards and we came out $300 ahead using TIW than if we used the DDP. part of it is probably becuase we like appetizers better than desserts.

Thank you - I wish I had a better computer to also convert the hours of video I shot. Even though BW is in need of an update, we really loved the location. But AKV is just so relaxing...

I know it's corny, but it is a small world. How the ladies spotted us still amazes me. I may have to get DH more of the Berwyn shirts so he has one to wear every day so our Dis friends can find us.

It is better to be sick there - I think it gives you strength to keep moving..something you never would have done at home. And I still have nooooo idea how DFIL ended up with a hand out of his head, I bet we couldn't recreate that if we tried.

Thanks Jo - we'll just keep an eye out and see if we happen to pop up anywhere. The pharmacy was trying to tell me they were no longer selling the Tylenol cold, no recall, no anything, just they were no longer able to sell it. Well then put it out of site so people like me who need meds with Pseudoblahblah (one of these days I'll get the spelling of the correct ingredient! ) don't see it and get their hopes up. I almost called my dad in Chicago and had him go and buy up as much as he could before it was gone. Once we got home, they were still selling it just fine.

It's a picture post....

Remember when you were little and your books consisted of lots of pictures and very few words. Well that’s where we are headed with the rest of this day. So grab your favorite blankie and let’s go…..

Here’s what I do remember of the day…sleeping a lot, and finally getting hungry. So let’s go get some chicken nuggets from Mara:


I’m sure they were very good, but the burning in my throat whenever I tried to take a bite, negated any hunger pains I had felt . After a few fries and a chicken nugget I think I went back and laid on the couch until everyone got back from DHS. After that I continued to lay on the couch

Now while I was laying on the couch, everyone else went to DHS.




The TSM FP’s were all gone and the lines were too long, so they never rode it. They did stop in to see Prince Caspian


and they watched the parade. Now DH is not a parade guy…except for Spectro he would be perfectly happy never seeing any of the parades. BUT – he came back just raving about the one at DHS








They also managed to catch a Jedi Training Academy…and it’s probably a good thing I wasn’t there. I am a HUGE Star Wars geek/nut/fanatic whatever word fits. And I think it’s totally unfair that us “big kids” cannot be chosen for it…. Ok off the soapbox, and here are pictures from it:







Continued in next post (too many pictures!)

DHS HV Picture Post Continued Part 2....

Dinner that evening was at H&V (which I didn’t really mind missing as I’d never heard anything good about it, but DFIL had heard it was good.) I made DH promise to take lots of pictures because I couldn’t really find any…and he did. So here’s your tour of H&V…

Inside:

Back at AKV Picture Post Continued Part 3....

Finally once they were back, and DH saw I was still alive but unable to do anything except be one with the couch, he decided to wander around and take a few pics:
The elevator lobby we used most




The button showing DVC in the elevator


And a couple of randoms….






That’s it for Tuesday…tomorrow is another day and maybe my throat will finally get better…but then again, it’s probably wishful thinking…..

Looks like they had a nice time whilst you were getting better on the couch! H&V isn't what I expected it to look like at all
