I would love to go to Disney during the Flower and Garden festival, that's the one time of year I'd really like to visit that I haven't been able to fit a trip into yet. I love the toperaries (sp?) of the characters.

I can't wait to hear about Narcoossee's, I'm eating there for the first time this fall, so am excited to hear any review about it, especially ones with pictures, and I know you take pictures, so I'm looking foward to it.

Really, really pretty pictures in Epcot! Your dress is beautiful! I hope that that night changed Ray's opinion about Epcot in general.

It sounds as though Ray liked Epcot

I really need to go at that time of year as all the topiarys and flowers are just beautiful

I missed the candy lady in Japan. I guess we weren't there at the right time. That area in France was great for the F&G festival. We spent some time there at night enjoying some pastries! They were sooo good.

I saw your comment about being away from family at Christmas. A few years back I went on a cruise with a friend the week of Christmas. Not to take anything away from my family, I love them very much -- but that was a GREAT Christmas! I'm glad you will get to see your family at Thanksgiving.

I'm happy Ray decided to give Epcot another try. I really enjoy the WS -- there just aren't many places that have such varied architecture. I love just walking around. We stayed there late on an EMH day and when we were leaving we were some of the last people in WS. So pretty and peaceful at night.

Hope all is going well. Can't wait for more updates!
i can't wait to go there at night when i go back in september! and i want one of those "things" from france in my back yard! it was so neat and relaxing to just sit back and enjoy ourselves.

If you get ADRs at restaurant Marrakesh in Sept. or Dec. try the Baklava and Moroccan coffee if you get a chance!
yep, that was our 5-year anniversary (my other TR you're referring to). how funny that your grandpa was named william ray! some of ray's friends call him willie! it's just a little joke. most people call him ray-ray.

we're not eating at marrakesh in september or december, but i do plan on doing a CS for dinner there in december and i'm thinking i want to try the tangerine cafe. can you get the morrocan coffee there? i know you can get the baklava. i've had the pistachio baklava and it was very yummy!!!

Dawn, that dress is so pretty! I always feel so sloppy walking into the nice restraunts there in my capri's and drenched in sweat.
thanks! well, i knew we were just walking around WS for a little while and then going to dinner at narcoosee's, so not riding anything. and it was almost 6:00 by the time we got to WS, so i knew the hottest part of the day was over. i'd never dress up otherwise!

Can't wait to read more!!!
Lesley
thanks! can't wait to see your SE trick shots! i bet they're funny with the kids. oh, i didn't meet genie that night. we didn't want to wait in lines......just walk around WS for a little bit. i met him last year at MK though and he gave me a kiss!

How long does it take to walk through the IG from BW?
both the slushies are good......you can't go wrong. just depends on your mood!

the walk isn't long. i'm thinking like 10 minutes.

To answer your question re parking at WL and taking the boat to MK. Just let them know that you are going to be eating at WL, or stopping for drinks usually works too. Shouldn't be a problem, although I have not stayed off site in years, so not sure if my resort parking pass helps.
thanks! i got it for like $30 at marshall's!

thanks for answering the parking question. i'm hoping that will work. it would be really cool to end our vacation seeing the WL all decorated for christmas at night on the way back to the car after MVMCP!

Another great chapter! Can't wait to hear about your nice dinner!
that's so funny about the microphone.....and true!!!

i think he actually did enjoy himself at epcot this time! even though we were only there for a little while, it was still great to walk around and take in the sights!

thanks!!! you SO can rock that dress now. it's great because it hides my problem areas (read: hips/thighs!) and it's not tight in the tummy so i could pig out at narcoosee's!

oh, i loooooove me some narcoosee's! that and kona cafe are my two favorites (so far at least). and definitely try to go in april/may some day. just be sure to avoid spring break crowds. the crowds this year were good after the first 2 days. last year we went may 6 - 10 and didn't experience ANY crowds!

Great update, can't believe Ray suggested Epcot!

I laughed at your monchichi comment. There is a store up here that sells them, I didn't realize they were rare until people started commenting on them in trip reports.

thanks! i know...i was in shock for a little while, too!

Don't you know that lady underneath SSE is hoping Ray's not going to drop it on her head?!?!

I have that roof picture, too. It is beautiful and just so massive when you are standing underneath it.

I don't know why this went through twice. Oh, never mind, yes I do. I remember the computer doing something weird as I was writing that last sentence. Okay, that's kind of weird, so sorry for the (kind of) double post.
