I have enjoyed reading your trip report. We're leaving for 9 nights at WDW this Friday (first trip back since 2/08), and I am finally getting excited about going. It will be the first time our family eats at Crystal Palace and Tony's Town Square...thx for the food photos, it looks yummy.

Day #7

Ok so today is Day #7 Saturday 5/2/09 Warm and Sunny weather

We woke up at 6:30am this morning to get ready to get to our ADR's at Kona Cafe for breakfast.

Being that early there was no wait for our ADRs. We order and our breakfast was quickly there. The food was excellent and service was very good as well.



After we finished we took a bus to Downtown Disney to do some shopping. We arrived a little before 9am and had to wait till most of the stores opened.





Couple pictures of me in front of World of Disney. After doing a little shopping there and at Pin Central we took a bus over to the Yacht and Beach Club. From there we walked through the international gateway to Epcot to finish seeing some things that we didn't get to see earlier in the trip.






About 11:30am we got hungry so we decide to get something at the Electric Umbrella. Just your typical fast food. Once lunch was over we headed Norway to try to ride the Maelstrom again. Luckily this time we didn't have the ride breakdown on us! Yay!

I love the musical acts at Epcot, especially Off Kilter so it was off to catch a set of theirs. They were great as usual. And Jamie was even there!










Once they finished their set, we walked around World Showcase.

We caught an act in France. This guy was amazing balancing on these chairs.




Next we stopped in Morocco to rest and catch Mo' Rockin! What a great performance.
I was going to pick up one of their CDs but I failed to do so. Big mistake.



American Adventure was our next stop. Brandi loves the Voices of Liberty, and so do I so we watched one of their performance. After they were finished, one of the cast members came up to us and asked what my name was. I told him Todd Breaux. He said oh, Breaux family? you have a call come follow me. So we followed him into a small room at the entrance. He told Brandi to pick up the phone and dial a certain number. It was Minnie congratulating us on the wedding/honeymoon. Magical Moment. He then wrote our names on a magical moment certificate. Then he brought us next door to the Liberty Inn counter service restaruant. Then in a loud voice he introduced us to the other guests telling them of our recent marriage. Everyone clapped. Then he gave us one more treat, an apple pie for us to share. This cast member was great and spread a little pixie dust on our trip.

After this we went to the America Gardens Theater to catch Chubby Checker for the Flower Power Concert Series. He was very good and we enjoyed the show.











After the show it was time for us to get to Mexico for our ADR's at San Angel Inn at 6:15pm. We had a little time so we rode The Grand Fiesta Tour. Always a fun time but I miss Rio Del Tiempo. We were quickly seated and very quickly served. I think it was maybe 5 minutes after we ordered when we received our food.



I had to get a margarita.



From start to finish it took maybe 30 minutes. Not that they rushed us. It just took them only minutes to make our meal. The waiter was very friendly and the food was great.

We had time to wait before Illuminations were starting so we headed to the fountain of nations area to sit down and relax. We sat and people watched for about 1.5 hrs. AFter thinking about it, we should have walked over to Imagination but we didn't think about it. I think it was because we were tired.





Once Illuminations was over we took the monorail back to the Polynesian to rest up for our last day

So my next installement will be day #8, our last day

Day #8, Final Day

Day #8 Sunday 5/3/09 warm and sunny

Well today is our last day. It's alway a bummer when you have to go home.

We wake up bright and early at 6am to get dressed and eat some breakfast at Captain Cook's before going to church at Mary Queen of the Universe Shrine.

By the time we pack it's 7:30am and we go to the Great Ceremonial House to do our Airline Check in. After checking in our luggage we eat a quick breakfast. Magical Express will pick us up 1:45pm for our 4:30pm flight back home.

One last photo in the atrium.



It's now 8:30am and we need to take a cab to make it to church on time for 9:30am mass. This is the second time we have gone to church here. It's about 20-25 minute ride that cost about $25. The church is very beautiful.
After church service is over, we take the cab straight to the Magic Kingdom. We only had a couple hours in the park before having to leave. So we stopped by Pecos Bill for a couple hamburgers loaded with all the fixins!

We also made a trip around Magic Kingdom on the Railroad. Brandi had never rode the train. Before we left I had to stop at the Confectionary to buy some chocolate chip cookies to bring home. I love those things!

Sadly it was time to return to the Polynesian to catch Magical Express.

Our flight left on time at 4:30pm from MCO. We had a layover in Atlanta and we finally arrived back in Lafayette at 9:15pm. We were a little worried about the weather in Altanta. There was a big thunderstorm that came in but by the time our layover was ending, so was the storm.

This was one our best trips ever. It will be difficult to top.

Thank you all for reading!

Stay tuned, my next trip may be in December 2009!

PhotoPass Pictures!

Checked my mailbox yesterday and was happy to see our Photopass CD had finally arrived. We had a total of 131 pictures.

By request here is a sample of some. I'm very glad we got this. Well worth the cost.
