Yay you got to meet Mickey!! Oooo all of that food looks delicious!! I love the brown derby, so very good! I'm sorry about the parenting incident, it really does upset you when you see things like that. Too bad Jen had to leave but hey you had a good trip with her (well it seemed that was anyway!) Can't wait to hear what you did solo!!

JULIE ANDREWS! It was like the Brown Derby KNEW I was coming for lunch!

I was in heaven, my beloved Brown Derby, Julie Andrews and Jen. Ahhhh.
I too love Julie Andrews. I loved her book, Home. I wish she would write another one from that point on.

I am sorry you had to witness bad parenting. I always feel so bad for kids who have to go through that, because if they do that in public what must they be like in private.

Your update made me laugh out loud more than once!

Oh too funny! We'll mention something LL if you start posting the same day twice.

VERY cute! And I love your top!

I was like...

BOO! Just because you like to eat people for lunch....
Do you like them with ketchup?

Your whole time at Brown Derby sounded so magical- from Julie Andrews to the AMAZING dessert! (I'm just pretending the bathroom ordeal did not happen. )

This is SUCH a cool light fixture.

And YAY for the Cowboy! Tonight I was going through the very little Disney World video we have done and we have 3 clips of the GMR! I am going to upload them to YouTube for easy access.

Sorry to see Jen leave... Thankfully you get to see her again soon!

I never did get my blurry dumbo photo. Sigh. I WILL GET IT IN THE FALL.

I will tell you...in the next update. I need an evil laughter smiley face. Hehehe.
Oh that is too funny about MeMom!!!

Bummer that you did not get the Dumbo shot. The one from CRT is pretty close though. And just another good reason on why you must go back in October!

Yay for finally meeting Mickey!
OMG. The UP characters are so cute! Hmmm...I wonder if they're in Disneyland.
I love your character quiz results. (Lady Tremaine's in my top 5 favorite Disney characters)
Brown Derby looks delish. It had be drooling.
Boo for Jen leaving. At least you'll get to see her again in September.

Brown Derby . Ahh. So glad you enjoyed your meal. How perfect was the Julie Andrews signature?! Love that you got a booth. That just increases the Hollywood glamour, don't you think? I don't know what it is, but there is something about those rolls. *Drool*

Hurrah for finally getting your picture taken with Mickey. Jen- just noticed your special t-shirt. And your visor with the mickey head is cute!! LL- like your shirt too. I'm finding myself obsessing about my wardrobe for our upcoming trip - maybe b/c I know with so many of us doing TRs it will be well documented!

You finally saw the cowboy! Yippee! I don't know if I've seen that. Not recently, certainly.

Oh, and you're NOT like Lady Tremaine. That's just silly!

Now that I was alone...what would I do?
Looking forward to Snow White in November!

I hope Disney never loses the small touches like having the kids open places. That's such a simple thing that can't anything on to their operating costs, and it creates special memories for everyone who sees it.

It's great that you found a new friend through the DIS. I'm sure you will have more fun trips together in the future.

I'm so glad you updated again! Are you and CP purposely updating on the same nights or is that purely coincidence????????

I love the Mickey picture. That is so awesome. It makes me wish I would take the time to get in some of the character lines. However, I think I am the only one in my group who really cares. I guess that's why I really need a girl's trip.

The cheesecake at the BD looks fabulous. I have a lunch resie there for September. I may HAVE to have that!

The parenting skills in the bathroom are horrible. What a way to make you feel sick on a full stomach.

Your scores on TSM are WAY better than mine. Maybe that's why I have decided to bypass TSM FP's for ToT and RnR. I'm not very good and it makes my arm hurt. Boo hoo! Poor me!

I'm really glad that you and Jen got to be such good friends! How truly special that you are so compatible and that you got to have such a great trip together. Bye Jen.......Sorry your time with LL is over! Hopefully this is the first of many trips together. Now let's see who buys DVC first!

Hooray for finally meeting Mickey!

Those Up characters are so cute! You definately need to see the movie. Warning tho, you may cry, I did!

Brown Derby is definately on my list of to-dos. That cheesecake looks devine!

I can't wait to see what you do while solo.

Glad that you finally got to meet Mickey- and Sorcerer Mickey nonetheless! Great pic with you two.

The food at the Brown Derby looks delicious. I haven't been there in years! Somehow we always got the snobby waiters when we stopped going. I'd love to give it another chance... maybe someday.

Awww... sad that Jen's leaving. Hope the rest of the day is still fun though.

You should really see UP. It is a good movie, I like it a lot. Do you mean you have never seen ANY Mickey, or just not Sorcerer Mickey? I just met Sorcerer Mickey on my 5th trip, but I had met Mickey in many other outfits. It was sad to hear that you had to part with your friend, but at least you got to stay at Disney.

I have to admit in all the years I've been going to Disney I've only gotten the Cowboy scene once.. maybe twice?? Isn't that funny?! And it is really strange when you get the different scence cause it's like "Wait.. what's happening... where's the gangster? Why is it all different?" LOVE the cobb salad- and it's quite refreshing on a hot day!
WOW you girls do not fool around on TSM.. look at those high scores! Any hidden tricks you can share to achieving a higher score so I can beat DH? LOL! The only thing I noticed is in one of the first ones theres a bumble bee that flies toward you and if you shoot it you get a bunch of points right in the beginning.

I was right...you saw Mickey AND Up Characters! Fun!!!

I was so sad as Jen walked away into the sunset I know how lonely it is to be alone at DHS.
