Your welcome ! I missed you and was really worried. I will have to go over to your awesome TR and see what you have posted there. OMG, I said "mojo" more times than I can count and thought of you every time I said it. Bill was laughing at me. I LOVE Pop too!!

That drink was pure Heaven!! I saw Peeps everywhere, Bill doesn't get it. He didn't think I should take any pictures, so we compromised on one picture of Morocco .

My favorites so far... love the Pop pictures and the Epcot pix - brings back memories of my recently trip with mom. SWW looks so cool! It looks like you guys had a ton of fun! Your dessert at 50s PTC looked yummy - I'll have to remember that in the future - is it just seasonal or do they have it year round?? The Indy Bill picture is great - I totally woud have bought it too. I can't wait to ride Toy Story Mania! I hope we get to go next spring - I know we will all love it - thanks for all of the great pictures!

Good Luck to Bill on Wednesday. My thoughts will be with both of you.
Hi Amy!! I am so glad to "see" you!! SWW was really cool, we will be going again sometime. I think that dessert was seasonal, but heck they said last November the seasonal cobbler was apple, then Bill asked 2 weeks ago what the seasonal cobbler was and it was Apple, so it might still be there when you go . You will love TSM, it was really great.

Jordan, Bill will have ankle surgery the afternoon of July 2nd. They are releasing two tendons and reattaching one. He will stay over night and have a splint for a week or two then a short cast for 4 to 6 weeks.

# 8 Another change

Initially according to my DOTP = Disney Obsessive Trip Planning we were supposed to be at Animal Kingdom at rope drop. We were going to do the Nemo show, the safari, and Festival of the Lion King before going over to MK. Bill was tired when we got back to the room and we decided to sleep in until 9:30am and head over to MK instead. I couldn’t take it, by 8am I was wide awake, but laid there until 8:30am. I was full of energy this trip and didn’t want to sleep. I got up, made sure everything was put back in the suitcase we didn’t need, and made sure the backpack was ready. I got dressed and laid on top of the covers waiting for the alarm to go off. It finally did.

Bill wanted to see if we could get a reservation at Tony’s instead of the Crystal Palace one we had at 4:45pm. We had originally booked The Wave at the Contemporary, until Bill saw the menu and said “Ewww, no way”. I got on the phone, there weren’t any dinner ressies left, but there was a late lunch at 2:30pm. Bill said ok, so we booked it. I helped Bill get dressed and put the birthday button on again. For those of you counting this was the 3rd day of the birthday extravaganza. Then he said “why don’t you get some prices for the bounce back offer?” I had made my ADR’s for our October trip, but was waiting for AP with dining rates to come out to book the room.

I called, we liked the price we got and booked it. I booked Oct. 19th through Oct. 27th. (I added the 18th two days ago, because that date was not included in the future visit offer.) Ten days and 9 nights in my happy place in October that made leaving the next day just a bit easier!!

We left the room by 11:30am and the bus arrived immediately. When we were in the bus, we saw the MK sign. My heart always beats faster when I see it. We walked in and ohhhh there is the castle just where we left it in November:



It is so nice to see that they took care of it for us. We were trying to do some things we hadn’t done before and since we had never been to Toontown we decided to go there first via the train.



Wheelchair accessible area on the train:







We were welcomed to Toontown



and went in search of the princesses. It said a 45 minute wait, but I think it was more like 30. Bill got to see Cinderella, Belle, and Aurora.







Did you see that Aurora was hugging up my man. She better be glad that princesses, DISers, and Soap Stars get a pass when it comes to touching Bill .


We had to look at the pins there and Bill bought a Mickey with Walt pin (that I have since stolen from him) and traded for a Mickey and Donald pin:






After that we took a stroll through Minnie’s house, it was adorable but very hot and stuffy inside. I loved the paintings there:









Then we went to visit Mickey’s house.









He had the air on, it felt much nicer in there. We didn’t get to visit him in the Judge’s tent since we had an ADR to get to. We hopped back on the train



and were there quickly. It was the first time we had rode the train all the way around the park.

We saw Pinocchio, but the line was too long so on to Tony’s. We didn’t even have to wait 5 minutes before being seated. We came to the table and they had Mickey head confetti on it, I hadn’t said anything about Bill’s birthday, I guess the hostess saw the button.



The waiter wanted to take a picture of us:



Bill ordered the Chicken Parmesan and I got a Caesar Salad with the dressing on the side.





He got a Coke and I got tea, it tasted a little funny to me so I ordered a diet coke. We decided to eat slowly for several of reasons.

1. It helps the digestive system

2. I was updating my trip report journal so I was writing more than eating

3. I was addressing some postcards

4. The parade was coming and we were by the windows in the restaurant

As we were sitting there by the door to the porch a visitor showed up:



He decided to walk around the restaurant:



The waiters didn’t even pay attention to him. Guests next to us were not amused, their teenage daughter was scared of the duck and they left. We finally got done with our lunch and Bill ordered cheesecake, I got the seasonal sugar free Apple Sorbet. I always cut Bill’s food for him. He was killing me, making the fat girl cut the cheesecake, LOL. Cheesecake is my kryptonite. I made it through cutting it up for him, I was weak but still alive.





The sorbet was F A N T A S T I C. I adored it, I wanted more, I loved it. I can’t say enough about it. It was wonderful. The parade came through and we could see it very well. Then it was time to go.

We got outside and it was raining, pouring actually. We looked at one other like “oh no”. People were leaving the park in droves. We stood there trying to decide what to do.

Next installment…Do we leave too?

Hey Tracy! Just got back from a long weekend away (not Disney) and was happy to find all your updates when I returned!

The Star Wars pictures look great! I too am not a big fan (only saw one of the movies) but the pictures you took make it look like so much fun even for someone who doesn't know much about it.

How funny that so many people thought Bill was a CM! Maybe it is a sign...

Love all the pins you guys got - looks like some great ones!

Great pictures of Toy Story Midway Mania also! I'm glad you got a chance to ride it - I can't wait to ride it myself! Looks like tons of fun.

for the 10 days booked in October! That is awesome!

Loved seeing you in more of the pictures - you look great!

My prayers will be with Bill tomorrow - please keep us updated on his surgery.

WOW! Sounds like a wonderful day at Magic Kingdom. I love the pins! And those princesses.... How dare she hug him??

I wonder how it's going to go for us in October. DD is VERY possessive about her Daddy. She scowls and growls whenever we mention princesses. She doesn't want them near her Daddy! She's just gonna have to get over it, I do believe.

Let's hope the surgery helps a lot.
And for a speedy recovery! And Tracy, for your nerves to be at ease.
He'll be fine. You'll both be just fine.

Can I just say that I love this pic of Bill. I wish I could just take this and bottle it up. Disney Happiness. I think I would have a top seller, don't you.

Wishing you guys all the best of luck tomorrow. Give us an update as soon as you can. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
