Hurray! Your mom has arrived! I am sorry though that one of the first things she did was change from DHS to Epcot and nixed Brown Derby .

Poor LL! I can't imagine the pain you were in with your feet!

Cracked me up that your mom told a complete stranger about your light fetish!

Seeing your Rose and Crown pictures made me crave it something fierce!

I do hope that you are able to make it through AK the next day!

I read somewhere a right before our first Disney trip that one of the biggest causes of blisters is dampness causing extra friction. If you spray your feet with antiperspirant, they won't sweat so you reduce the chance of getting blisters. We tried it and now we do it any time we'll be walking long distances. I carry a travel sized stick of antiperspirant with me just in case what I used in the morning wears off. Neither my DD nor I have had a single one since. It might be worth a try for you.

epcot and you are not friends....so much walking required at this park....your poor feet.

OMG I can't believe all of the foot pain you had. How terrible! I hope you never experience that again. No fun at all!

What do you use for blister prevention/care? I'm VERY prone to blisters and would love your advice.

I love the carpet bag witht he lamp coming out. I have to find that when we go in August. I'm reading Mary Poppins with my third grade class and think they'll get a kick out of it!

So sorry to hear about all the foot pain, I hope September will be much better for your feet. I always wear my sneakers in the morning and switch to flip flops for the evenings after our mid day break. It works really well for me.

Sorry you didn't get to go back to Brown Derby, but Rose & Crown is so good. We went there on our last trip and loved it. It looks like you still got in a nice tour of the World Showcase for your mom despite your feet. You didn't seem to miss much. It was so nice of you to be such a trooper to make your mom's vacation more magical, what a sweet daughter.

Sorry about your plans changing for Brown Derby. I know you love it, but your meal at R&C looks pretty good. I'm sorry I changed my ADR there for September. Oh well, next time!

Such a cute picture of your mom! You look so much alike!

Kudos to you for waiting 70 minutes for Soarin. No WONDER your feet were killing you at the end of the day. Sorry you ended up giving away your later FP's, but I'm sure you made someone's day a little

I was so embarassed!


She got a big kick out of my embarassment so she was very pleased with herself.
Love this picture. Almost worth the embarassment you had to endure to get it!

Absolutely beautiful. I never really made it to the countries on my trip, so I will be going indepth on the Sept trip!

LL - This was such a great update! It sounds like you had a fabulous first day with your mom. so sorry that you feet are still such a mess. I hope AK day brings better feet!

Just found your TR the other day and subscribed. So sorry about your feet. I really feel for you - I have the same problem and keeping my feet from hurting is priority #1 for me at Disney. Not only blisters, but keeping my feet from aching from walking. Last year on our first night I made the mistake of walking very fast around the entire "world" (in the WRONG shoes!) at EPCOT during F&W to get something from one of the stands and killed my feet that very first night. Like you, sometimes I was in tears from the pain. I hope you find something that works for you!!

Love your light fixture photos - cool idea! I will certainly be much more aware of them on our next trip.

YOU SKIPPED THE BROWN DERBY ???? The shock, the horror!!! That's all I got out of this post... LOL Just Kidding!!
I cannot believe your poor feet! But you should be proud that you did SO MUCH despite all the pain you were in. Rose & Crown looked reallllly good, I haven't been in a few years! OH- and So You Think You Can Dance is my all time favorite (reality) show!!! The choreographers are brilliant, aren't they?! I'm sure you and Momma LL are going to have a great next day! I just know it!

I am so sorry to hear how bad your feet got. I don't see how you walked to all with your feet being one giant blister. I am glad you got to eat where you wanted to though. I hope you find a way to not be in so much pain.

I am so sorry your feet were giving you so much trouble!! Especially, when you are at Disney and there is tons of walking!! On the bright side, the pictures of you and your mom are so cute! I love your pink shirt! It is so pretty!

Nice update. Sorry to hear you missed out on Brown Derby and more of Hollywood Studios, but it sounds like you had fun with your momat EPCOT. So glad you got to get into Rose and Crown. I've never done Nine Dragons but I can't imagine it being as good as Rose and Crown.

I knew you were worried about your feet heading into the trip, but the blisters were unexpected, right? So how was the other pain you were having pre-trip?

You were very gracious when your Mom wanted to change your HBD ressie, so in my opinion you were repaid by getting that R&C ressie. Way to go !

Your meal at R&C looks great!! So sorry to hear about those darn feet. My husband used to get blisters (not as bad as yours) but once he started using Body Glide & Moleskin he never had an more blisters. PLEASE go out & by some for your September trip!!! I hope your feet get better for your next day with Mom.
