I can't believe you didn't break 200 light fixture pics. I blame the rain *blame it on the rain, yeah, yeah* I crack myself up.

Can't wait to hear about Sanaa!

I haven't seen the American show either. We may have to check it out next time. I do so love the Ellen ride. It definitely needs some updating though.

I agree about Ellen's - not something I would do every trip, but I really enjoyed it.

Looking forward to more!
We really did try to make the best of the rain and we did for the most part. Jen was the driving force for that, she was like my own personal cheerleader!

Great update, LL!! I can't wait to see American Adventure come September, it's been years since I've gone in there, cause the last trip was our little ones, they wouldn't have appreciated it then, maybe next trip.

Sounds like a great day, despite the rain!!!!
American Adventure is great. I hope you get to it on your next trip!

I've never even been inside the American pavilion! Awful, I know. It's the only WS country we never do... I will definitely make a note to see the American Adventure next week!

Remy is absolutely adorable and your lunch at Chefs looks soooo delicious.
Yes, put it on your list for next time! Chefs was very yummy, I am happy that we went there. Yum Yum.

Yes, please be sure to see it again, well worth it.

I would've been tee'd at the drunk dude. You handled it better than I. I've only ridden 'Soarin' in California and it was front row. I can't imagine any other way!
I don't know if Rach will have patience to do American Adventure..... whaddya think for kids? Yay or nay?
Ellen's is part movie, part ride...it's weird.
Oh just bring in candy for her, she'll be fine. Or bribe her with a souvenir afterwards for being good. I think it's interesting but that's me.

I'm bad at hidden mickey's, so I think I will try the boats and see how that works!

So thanks for keeping me entertained. I love you pictures of the American Adventure. I also like the part about the two brothers and I love that song since I'm partial to folk music.

See ya when I return. I will be on the lookout for CP and gnomie!

p.s. Julez - yes I think you should take your daughter to AA. The worst that would happen is she takes a quick cat nap!
I hope you have a magical trip!! I can't wait to hear all about it. I think the boats are a great idea! I wonder how many pictures you will take....

I loved the chatter about the obnoxious Soarin' riders.....don't you wish they could be "politely" asked to LEAVE!!!!! Hee hee hee!!!

Can't wait for more!
I wish they could have asked him to leave but it made for great TR fodder. I hope you get to see it too.

We had a drunk "kid" in line with us twice in one day. My daughter was with me so I was not at all happy.
Yeah, that is one thing I am not fond of at Epcot. Later on the week we ran into a group of people celebrating a girl's 21st birthday, they were a bit obnoxious too.

It did put a damper on the fun but we tried our best to keep on trucking.

I think we need to have a contest on how many pics of boats MEK will take. I am still bummed on how bad I did on the light fixture contest. I need redemption here.
Oooh, maybe we should start a guessing pool!

I heard the Golden Dream song today, it is on the 4 Parks 1 World CD that I bought. I just love that cd, best souvenir I have EVER purchased.

Okay, JUST got all caught up -- also very interested in hearing about Sanaa, since we have an ADR there, too! Also, every time I read these TRs I realize how little of the WS and Epcot I've seen ... I didn't realize how much there WAS in each pavillion. Only been during the F&W and, well, I was always more preoccupied with the Food and Wine So looking forward to checking this out! Your photos got me very interested! Great details on your trip so far!!! Enjoying it, looking forward to how it continues to unfold.

LL, do you think Ellen's ride is too "dull" for the 7 - 4 crowd?

I think if your boys like Dinosaurs then it might just keep their attention.

That is how I feel about Animal Kingdom, I look at pictures and wonder why I haven ever seen that before. I don't have a lot of patience for AK.

I have just added the American Adventure to things I want to see in Epcot. It rained a lot the day we were in Epcot in October. It actually wasn't too bad since we were exploring World Showcase and we weren't outside the whole time. I am leaving for Disney tomorrow! So, I will be sure to catch up when I get back!

No. I doubt I will have time today at work and then I have a meeting to go too tonight and I won't get home until at least 8PM. So hopefully Thursday or Friday. But I'll tell you what, I will start writing the update during my downtime at work.

You are going to have to wait for the Sanaa update because that is the second day of the trip and we are still on the first.

You should do it! I love it.
