Or swinging the chains in the ride lanes? Or not holding my hand in a crowd? Or being a picky eater? Or having a temper tantrum? Cant even sit next to my own husband, the little one keeps getting in the way All these things that used to irk me as a non parental unit now I completely understand!

You guys are my heros...now I need another drink....where's the Tylenol??
that is to funny... kids can be a big ol pain in the rump, but they do have another side.. and that keeps us moms going... I have a 11 yr old the never lets me sit, stand walk beside my husband.. since he is the last of 3.. I have grown used to it... my hubby still hates it though.

P.S. I have to admit at the end of the day.. I am ready for a big ole glass of red wine... whew...

Sorry sweetie! But I bet they'll say at the end of the trip: "My Aunt Nicki and Uncle Todd are the bestest in the world!" (and why wouldn't they be for taking them to WDW! )

Hey, thanks for the beautiful pictures!!! I'm putting them on my screen saver... I can't wait... though it looks a lot warmer and greener than the pictures I could take right now... mine are all white.

Since it was in the high 20's this morning I let them all sleep in...secretly hoping that HS would be as dead as MK....boy was I wrong but more on that later!

Around 8:30 we all went to Capt Cooks for breakfast...this place was packed to the gills! Todd got his staple, a cinnamon bun and it was great, nice and soft and yummy...Main Street style it aint but it is still good.

He and I order the adult breakfast platter and I shared half with the older one...her appetite is verocious before her meds and completely gone after she takes them. The eggs were awesome, the bacon nice and well done and crispy...fantastic fat and juicy sausages and the biscuits were great. The potatoes were a little overcooked but good too. Todd had that BLECH coffee and we shared and OJ.

The kids each got the french toast sticks with bacon and grapes. The little one had apple juice and the older one had the strawberry milk (that is the nastiest stuff ever!) The amount of bacon they got was ridiculous..so much of it! They loved the french toast and ate every single bite.

We then made it to the bus stop for the HS bus and it was packed like sardines....lucky it is just a short ride! So when the bus pulled in what do you think we saw? Brazillian tour groups, tons of them, at least 8 that I counted (all with different banners and flags). They were loud, they were obnoxious and they all reeked of nasty cologne. I thought I was going to lose my mind getting through bag check and the ticket counter.

We made a beeline to Toy Story, got the FP and the line was 50 minutes. We did a few attractions and then Todd took the older one to ride the hard core stuff and I took the little one to see the characters. That worked out perfect!!! The character lines moved fast and we met up around 12:30 for lunch at Pizza Planet.

The older one didnt eat but the little one gobbled up her grapes, apple juice and pizza. By the way I was able to order her pizza without sauce and she loved it.

Todd and I each had the cheese pizza hopping the older one would take a piece and then we shared the caprese salad with kalamata olives, mozzarella cheese and assorted tomatoes and lettuce. The pizza was ok and the salad was ok...a bit wilted. Nothing to write home about and if we were not with the kids we wouldnt have eaten there but it was decent and not BLECH at all....especially when you dip the pizza in Ranch dressing.....one of my best friends taught me that...she is from Long Island and said the pizza here is so bad the only way she can eat it is to dip it in dressing ha ha!

We hung out at HS until our FP for the Toy Story ride, and left around 5pm and decided to pop $10 for a cab to DTD instead of messing with transportation.
Hey I am from Long Island too and I put ranch dressing on dominoes and chucky cheese pizza!!I didn't know it was a geographical thing!!

I THINK YOU ARE AMAZING for taking your neices. Its got to be hard when your not use to having them around all the time. I'm a single mom and its hard sometimes but worth every minute of it!!
BTW, I love fried seafood but I've never had fried lobster. How was it!?

Love the reviews, completely with you on 1900 PF the worst meal I've ever had in my life, until I had dinner there as well as breakfast and that was equally as bad.

Love the live report and full marks for being awake enough to post while you have two children in tow.

I agree as well! We had dinner there and not only did we wait 45 minutes past our ADR time, (I know, it's not a reservation), but the food was horrible. My hubby had one plate and said he was ready to go and get CS back at the Poly. If it wouldn't have been for the characters it would have been even more disappointing.
We know better now.

DH actually asked me when can we go back to WDW WITHOUT the children!

We really miss the quiet romantic meals!!

I'm looking forward to when I can put both my boys in the Neverland Club and enjoy a meal without a character in my face!

Oh, don't get me started on the potty breaks! DS4 had to go while waiting in line for Test Track. Do you know what a nightmare it is to get out of that queue and how mad I was to have to stand at the END of the line again!

Sleeping! Oh don't even go there! We always find a kid in bed between us!

Hope you had a WARM and fun day!

Great updates!!! I know what you are saying about bathroom trips also! Last trip we got all the way to the busses and my daughter decided that she had to go to the bathroom "NOW!" This was after I had asked her when we were walking past them.

Well, we missed our bus and had to wait for the next one.

Keep the reviews coming!

Thanks Again!
