Allow me to digress a bit … last year Maddie had found the “My Disney Girl” doll at Epcot on one of our last days. Well, she had spent all her souvie money on other crap and I refused to purchase it for her. A few months later, I found out on the DIS from MizDiz, actually, that the dolls were on clearance so I ordered from WDW and had it sent to our house for Maddie’s birthday. Long story short, she loves the doll and dragged her back to Florida with us.
Oh, man, I have a story about this. Later! Thanks for reminding me, though!

TE wanted that master room, so bad that she gave me a huge guilt trip. Which is not uncommon. For TE. So, I reluctantly gave in and we took the room with 2 queens and no Jacuzzi tub. D’Oh!
Did she later complain about the bed?

Chapter 2 ~ Viva La Waldo!!

I couldn’t believe it! I searched high and low for it – I emptied all the contents of every bag searching for it. It was no where to be found. How would I manage with out it? I would be completely lost.

Wonder what’s missing yet?

Why my handy dandy Disney World Outfit Spreadsheet, of course!

I had to think about why it was missing and then I remembered what had transpired….

I had purchased a new carry-on bag a few days before we left and had very carefully placed it in the side pocket of said bag. Well, the day before travel day, I decided the new bag was too small, so I returned it. With my laminated beauty still in it! Double D’Oh!!!

I had to think quickly, so I pulled out all my clothes and started organizing outfits for the next 10 days. Since I didn’t have a computer or laminating paper (I know, call me crazy) with me, I did the next best thing … I took a picture of my work! And I refered back the camera on a daily basis.



We finally got into bed and fell fast asleep. That is, until I woke up to find to big eyes looking at me! Maddie had fallen out of bed and decided rather than just climbing back in and going to sleep, she needed to wake me up and inform me of the situation.

My alarm went off at 6:45 am – I jumped up giddy as can be. Today was our first real day in Disney World!! I got myself ready and then woke up Andy. Maddie woke soon after that, and Evan, keeping tradition was the most difficult to wake up. My promises of riding Test Track did the trick and soon we were all sitting in the kitchen having some breakfast. I sent the kids in TE & Waldo’s room to make sure they knew AIS time was 8:00 am.

Surprisingly, they were ready and we all headed out the door at 8:15 am … in the rain.

Here’s what my itinerary said:

8/21 Epcot Day

8:00 am Bus to Epcot
9:00 am Rope Drop – Head to TT
FP Volunteer for Soarin’/Ride TT again
10:00 am Head to the Seas
Ride Nemo & See Crush
Wander Aquarium exhibits
12:30 pm Ride Soarin’, LWTL
Snack at Sunshine Seasons
Head to Mexico, ride boat ride
2:00 pm Norway; ride Maelstrom (FP if needed )
2:30 pm Lunch at Akershaus
Leave park

Here’s what actually happened….

We missed the first bus to Epcot, and the next one took FOREVER! Donning our Dollar Tree ponchos, we finally walked through the turnstiles at 9:10 am. Since it was raining, I didn’t worry too much about keeping to the itinerary. I know – I think LL slipped me some of that Kinder, Gentler Kool-Aid.

We headed straight over to Soarin’ and Andy grabbed us some FP’s with a return time of 10:50-11:50. Not bad, eh? The kids wanted to ride the Living With the Land boats, so we did that next. Waldo and TE had skipped breakfast, so we stopped at Sunshine Seasons and they had some breakfast and the rest of us had a snack. Yes, already.

We headed up the stairs and stopped to grab the strollers when I noticed I had left my VB backpack in the corner of the booth we were sitting at. And in it was all of our cash. I know! Andy ran down the stairs and found it right where I had left it. Whew! You can bet I got an earful from him.

CONTINUED IN NEXT POST.

Chapter 2 Cont. "VIVA LA WALDO!"

Next up was The Seas with Nemo and Friends! Oh boy! Heh heh heh! We walked right on to Nemo, which was nice. Does that ride ever have a line?? Maddie really wanted to do Turtle Talk with Crush, so we went over and just got into the next show. She and Evan went down to the front with high hopes of being chosen by Crush.

Evan & Waldo checkin' out the fish:


Proof that Andy's my Seahorse


A very fashionable eel in Animal Print!


Don't we all have this picture? Well of your own kids, not mine. That would be weird.


Maddie finally got her wish as Crush asked “The little Dudette in the striped shell” if she had a question. Maddie asked Crush who the coolest fish in the ocean was and of course Crush replied “Little Blue” and Dory came up on the screen with Crush. It was very cute and all Maddie could talk about for the rest of the morning.

Our FP time was approaching, so we left to head back to The Land. As we walked out, everyone was looking up at … THE SUN! Ahhh, finally! Some good ol’ Florida sunshine!

And then I spied THIS! Is that woman wearing a shower cap???


It was do or die time – we had a small window in which to ride Test Track before Fay let loose again. We quickly made our way over to TT and were slapped in the face by a 60 minute wait time.

Uh-uh – no way. No how. Not even for Evan.

BUT hold the phone, now.

We had in my loverly, unlost Vera Bradley backpack, the golden tickets … er DVC instant FP’s. Yes, that right kids, instant FP’s. Andy got into the mile long FP line and scored us some FP’s for NOW! Not before Evan decided he had to pee. Like now. And Maddie decided she was going to put on her big girl panties and ride with us.


And so, we rode TT. And it was good. And fun. And we got an awesome PP pic, but since I haven’t ordered my PP DVD, you’re just going to have to believe me. It’s actually pretty funny. TE’s face is classic.

And that’s when the rain started. Again.


Attempting to salvage my very well planned out itinerary, we headed to World Showcase and the Mexico Pavilion. Upon entering, we found Donald donning a poncho (no, not that kind) and a HUGE sombrero. And then we found his queue. Which was far too long for me, but the kids insisted we stop and join the other crazy people. Oh and Waldo, too. He wanted in on it as well.

Alas, the mojo was not working as we were very graciously told by the CM that Donald was leaving in 3 minutes and we would not make it in time. The kids had the longest faces you’ve ever seen. Not as long as Waldo’s as he was seriously bummed out. So, I suggested we go see Donald on the Mexico boat ride. What’s it called, again?

We walked right on the ride and as we cruised through the restaurant part, the smell was overwhelming delicious. It smelled of gramma’s house, sorry, but if you don’t have a brown gramma, you’re SOL, dude. The smell of slow cooked beans, warm tortilla’s & Mole filled the air. We were all in heaven. Waldo asked me about the restaurant and I told him I’d read nothing but negative reviews on the place. Maddie, sitting in the row in front of us, turned around and said, “But it still smells sooo good, Mom!”. I laughed at her enthusiasm.

We exited the ride and shopped around the Pavilion. I searched high and low for the Tequila Bar, and could not find it! I found the most adorable headband and lots of things that brought back childhood memories. I found the purse and piggy bank my grandparents had brought me back from their many trips to Mexico. I really enjoyed myself as I perused the lovely goods.

VIVA LA WALDO!!



Hey, this kid must have escaped from the IASW ride!

Waldo was also enjoying himself. He was pleasantly surprised to find his favorite movie on the DVD, The 3 Caballeros/ Saludo’s Amigo’s. He bought it under the guise that it was for the kids.

We said good-bye to Mexico and headed for Norway!

UPNEXT: WALDO FINDS HIS PRINCESS!
