Of course she then gets mad at me for being annoyed at her for not trusting my info. It is a vicious cycle.
I hear your frustration. My Mother and Dh do this to me every trip. Let me just go ask to check they will say. Maybe one day like after the 900th time they check and it turns out I KNEW what I was talking about they will finally trust me.

Phew! I was so afraid I was going to have a TON of installments to get caught up on! But, this is very manageable.

I'm really enjoying the trip of just you and your mom. Definitely has a different feel to it - more relaxed maybe?

Lots of lovely photos so far - per usual!

I totally understand not taking pictures during Spectro and Wishes. I'm glad you took the time to just sit back and enjoy. That's what I did too.

You should know better than that, it is ME after all, the girl who historically has taken 6 months to write a report on a one week trip. I am trying to move faster on this one though.

Definitely more relaxed although I did miss my brothers humour at times. They can be annoying but they are also a lot of fun.

Yep, it is so rare that I just set down the camera and just enjoy. It was nice!

Thanks, Epcot is always a beautiful park but the Flower fest just makes it even more beautiful and special.

I am glad that I scheduled two Epcot days or we would have missed a whole lot of it as well.

Just a warning, if you have me on Facebook I am slowly posting all my trip photos so if you don't want the TR to be spoiled don't look! On the other hand if you want an advance peek at what is to come well then go right ahead!

Oh my goodness, your photopass pictures are fantastic. It is so wonderful that you get to enjoy the magic with your Mom.

I loved the monrail shot!!

Your World Showcase pictures are amazing, truly beautiful, you do such a great job taking pictures . I am so tempted to look at all your pics on facebook, but I want to see them as the trip report goes along.

Thanks! I debated about whether I should put my pictures up on facebook ahead of the TR as so many of you are on there but lots of my friends and co-workers have been asking to see them so I figured I would give fair warning here and then leave it up to you guys what you want to do. The pictures don't give everything away, I have tons of funny stories to tell that are completely independent of the photos.

I have read about that happening to people whose first trip to Epcot is during the flower festival, they are disappointed when they see it "deflowered".
