BTW Sha, isn't this trip supposed to be "book research" for us?

Are we doing a sugar crawl? OF COURSE we're doing a sugar crawl...I mean common now. At the rate we're going, there may be a few dozen people in on this by the time it happens. Maybe we finish at the Poly and watch Wishes from the shore?

I have a good bit of things swirling around in my head now. By the time the trip rolls around, I could have quite a bit written. Don't forget the other...umm, surprise that will happen right around the trip (wink wink).

Definitely, its on. If we can't get to the monorail, we can do it at Epcot in World Showcase. A sugar crawl can be done anywhere that has lots and lots of tasty treats. Right off the top of my head, I'm thinking chocolate mousse from France and Schoolbread from Norway!!!

That one will be a first for me, haven't tried it. My friend Rob wanted me to add the Chocolate Eclair in France as well.

What, you mean I'm the only one that can eat anything he wants and never gain an ounce? (I'm going to pay dearly for that comment.)

Nah...I ate more (quantity wise) and more regularly the last time I was at WDW, than I normally do, and I lost weight. It's the stupendous amount of walking and the constant hydration.

I'm not sure of your background so I'll explain roughly. Calories are a measurement derived from how much energy it takes to heat up a specific volume of water 1 degree. So as you're walking all over WDW (effectively exercising, but I don't think anyone really has as much fun at a gym as in WDW) and drinking water and juice, and ice cold sodas, well all those cold drinks have to be heated up to 98.6...and although the external temp helps some, that's still more work your body has to do. So if you stick to water...which is has no added calories...you're really burning the calories over the length of a day.

And for pigging out in the Magic Kingdom or at the Poly...Dole Whip. Not only are they delicious as all get out, pineapple is one of several fruits which contain an enzyme that helps break down proteins...so you won't feel stuffed for so long.

I never thought I would encounter a science lesson on the Dis.

Why not? You have all sorts of technological demonstrations in the parks, as well as several cutting edge agricultural experiments in The Land.

I have been paying attention you know.
