I can't remember what Mom had but she had something.

That just made me laugh so hard!!

I love the sound of your last day - relaxing, fun, good food and beautiful pics of the fireworks with the EWP going on. I want to do that someday too!

Oh LL I just loved this final update on your trip and look forward to your final musings about it as well! Love that you met Anita, that you road the "wildest ride in the wilderness" and that you saw Wishes from the Poly beach!! Truly a nice day and what a nice relaxing morning at the Pop before departure! Okay so if we "forget" about the other stuff, with the airport, etc., it sure seems like a good end to a great trip.

I enjoyed hearing all about it!!

What beautiful pictures of Wishes! It seems lke you had a very nice last day! Sorry about the kid, I know what you mean about just having enough with kids. It's sometimes not even the kids but the fact that the parents are oblivious to the fact that their children are annoying people around them! At least you had a good flight! I bet George was hilarious after 7 free beers!!

It was great meeting you too! Your pictures from the Poly beach are amazing, I love the fact that you get to see the electrical light parade as well. I'm so sorry you had such a tough time with the rain and your feet then to top it off with rude parents and children at the airport. Not the best way to end the trip, but George did sound like fun!

What a wonderful update, LL! (Even though it is the last update for this TR, and you know how I feel about that! )

I would love to hear your mom imitating your yelping on Big Thunder! That's hysterical! I am very proud of you for riding it though!

I love, love, love the picture of the Mickey Bar!!!

How cool that you got to meet Anita and gang! Your picture together turned out very cute!

You're right -- watching Wishes from the Poly beach was a great way to end your vacation!

Mini Dis Meet with Anita-very cool...

I know there was something I forgot-cream cheese pretzel......add to list...are they anything like the fried wontons (filled with cream cheese) at Yak & Yeti...?

I always think I'm going to hit my head on BTMRR too...

I wouldn't mind getting stuck on HM...

I think your last night sounds lovely...watching wishes from the Poly...

Wow-nice guy on your flight back-everyone should have such a nice flighmate...

Sometimes it takes a little time and distance to get past the disapointment (in your case the weather and your foot pain) to focus on the good times. It is amazing how we take our health and the fact that Florida is sunny for granted isn't it?

Oh LL, I'm sorry about your feet.
The rain was pretty bad that week, but I had been spoiled. My first three trips only had one day of rain between them.
It was really great meeting you, and I had never been on CoP before so it was really great getting to experience that with a fellow DISSER.
The first trip I took I drove there but used the Disney transportation the rest of the time. The kids got pretty cranky by the end of the day (and so did I!) Since then on my subsequent trips I have used my own car and I don't think I will change that. Even if at some point I decide to fly down instead of drive I think I will rent a car, it is just so much more convenient.

What a fantastic last night! Wishes and the Water Pagent at the same time? Amazing! What music do they play on the beach- the Wishes music or the Water Pagent music?

Glad to head you conquered your fear of Big Thunder. It's one of my faves. (Nice going LL's mom )

I think my taste in food might be closer to your mom's than yours. The cream-cheese-filled prezzle looks nice, but the ice cream sounds more my style.

Looking forward to your final thoughts.

What a great last day!

I'm glad to hear that your mom treated you to a Mickey bar after your harrowing ride on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. I don't care what anyone else says, I'm with you. The longer I have to wait for a ride, the higher the anticipation, the more nervous and scared I get. Quite frankly, if I could walk on to half these rides, I'd actually ride them!

Sounds like you really had a wonderful last day and I'm glad to hear that you had a great seatmate on the flight home. That makes all the difference in the world doesn't it? Yay for George!
