I generally lurk when reading trip reports so I haven't commeted here yet - but I was wondering if you, Jen, play Farkle on Facebook? I'm fairly certain I just played against you a moment ago! :-)

Hey. I will be the first person to tell you there is nothing wrong with renting a scooter when you need it. I can't tell you how long it took us to convince Nana of that and some days we still have trouble. Sometimes, for whatever reason, walking is too much.

You needed one. And they are hard to drive, don't you feel bad at all! We've had some interesting moments as well, but we laugh and get over it. Seems like you were able to have a great day despite your hurting feet, and that's what matters.

Isn't it nice to go through the Safari without a camera? I stopped taking pictures a while back, because I just wasn't enjoying myself. It's so hard to get good shots (with my camera) on that ride, and now I just look, enjoy, and relax. Nice feeling, really.

You poor girl with those painful feet! Glad you got some respite during your AK day with the scooter.

The chandelier and the ceiling itself in that England shop was so gorgeous!! Your meal at Rose and Crown looked so good! Think I may have to add it to my list.

I was going to suggest the body glide, but it sounds like you are set for next time. I use the body glide and it works wonders. I put it on my toes and my heal, just to be on the safe side. And the times when I have forgotten to do it and have gotten the smallest of blisters, I just put some body glide on it before my next outing and it doesn't get any worse, which is good.

I think the scooter was a great idea. Hopefully, it allowed your feet to heal a little. I love the Lion King show. I haven't seen Finding Nemo yet. We ate at Flame Tree BBQ the last time we were there. Did the birds bother you? They were all over in the area where we sat.

Oh I'm so glad you rented a scooter. It saved your feet and you still got to see AK. No reason for you to have to stay in your room. Don't feel guilty about the perks of scooters, you had an honest reason for needing one and gosh darnnit for all of the rain and pain you've had during your trip you deserved a few perks!! I love FOTLK, it's my all time favorite show at Disney. I also really like the Nemo show, I didn't the first time we saw it but the second time for some reason I loved it. My bf just saw the pictures that you posted and he seemed to like it too so it'll definitely be on our to do list!!

YAYYY!!! You rented a scooter I was hoping you would! My Dad needed to rent 1 once b/c he was just recovering from open heart surgery (Tripple Bypass- He is very healthy, just has hereditary heart problems) He was also very ashamed of being 'that person' in the scooter- but it was our annual Christmas trip and there's no way we were going w/o him!!! Sooo he bit the bullet and rented the scooter- HE HAD A BLAST! Scooting all over the place, seeing how fast he could go
There is absolutely no shame in renting a scooter (as long as you really need it!!) And it sounds like you had a terrific day at AK Congrats on getting the pins that you wanted!

I'm glad you set aside your pride and got the scooter. You had wasted enough time on your feet and rain. It was time to enjoy and it sounds like you did. Your mom is awesome!

Hey there LL! I am so glad your mom got there! What a great treat. I was thinking that would be fun with my own mom some day She has never been. RE her taking are of you -- well, that is what us mom's do! I guess it is reassuring that even in your 20s and 30s, and 40s, etc, that this is still someone who feels that urge!!!! Being a mother myself, it is nice to have someone take care of ME for a change!!! SO you definitely got that I can tell!!!! Now, regarding your feet, I am so sorry that this kept causing your trouble, raw blisters? OUCH!!! At Disney, No good. She was wise to suggest the scooter, and to heck with what other people think, I hope that didn't get in your way of enjoying that day with your mom, I hope it did help.

Looking forward to your next post, and I am so glad she is there with you!!!

I'm glad you tried the scooter! Sounds like it saved the day! Good to know that they are relatively easy to get the hang of. I would wind up driving it into the tiger area or into the river I am so uncoordinated and non-mechanical!

So you liked the shows, did you? If you could only do one, which one would it be? Nemo?

Sounds like I will be avoiding Flame Tree like the plague - I do not like aggressive birds.

If you've showed pictures of the pins, I've forgotten. Will you show them again? They sound cool!

Hey LL:

I read your update yesterday and I didn't have time to comment. Then when I came back to DIS later, I thought I had already commented. Geeze - talk about a foggy brain. Do you know when I remembered I hadn't commented - just as I was falling asleep last night! LOL

Anyway - I am glad you rented a scooter because you suffered much too much with those painful feet. I believe that anyone who needs a scooter should rent one. Look at the perks that come with a scooter! Anyway, who are any of us to judge why someone does or doesn't need a scooter. Kudos to you for jumping right on there and not hitting anything. If I ever need to rent one, watch out, because I'll probably be running over everyone and everything in my path.

I just hope you feet do well during your next trip!

I have to chime in and say that I'm also glad you got the scooter You pay a lot of money to be at Disney, you shouldn't have to sit in your room!! Great idea - I don't think I'd hesitate to do it. I think I'll put Nemo on our list to see this year - we've never seen it. That pulled pork looks deee-licious!
