Always frustrating to get trapped on a bus for such a short distance. That happened to us taking a bus from TL to DTD. Even though they are right next to eachother we were on the bus for over an hour. Glad the MK bus and boat to Poly made it up to you though.

I see I missed the 3rd part to your update earlier

I get chills too seeing you guys in front of monorail. But like you said, it is nice that you got to experience that that night, as likely will not happen again

Your bus ride back sounds hilarious


What a funny guy Eric is ...He is too cute

Great update Diane, loved it! Poor Eric, but I couldn't help but laughing, I bet it would have been hysterical to see- wish Bryan would have gotten that on video : ) I hear ya on the DTD bus, it takes so incredibly long! Stinks about the driver, I can just imagine his face when they pulled away after chasing the bus in that heat. Kona looked awesome - one place we didn't hit this trip and need to when we return - I agree- KIDS MEAL OPTIONS and DESERTS STINK!!! They really need to add more variety. Glad you were able to use some of the FP's and that someone actually gave up a seat for you, but stinks the stroller was hitting you in the face- yuck! Can't wait to hear more, enjoying it, great job.

Poor Eric with the birds!!! I can't help but laugh at the mental image it conjures up though!

I always hear such horror stories about the DtD buses -- that's why we always drive over there.

Dinner at Kona looks delicious! You know Connor and I agree about the kids' meals and desserts! Hurray for getting to ride up front in the monorail! We did it back in 2007, but even if Disney continues to allow it, I don't think I will ever let the kids do it again!

Looking forward to Animal Kingdom!

Great Update I love your pictures of BC that is my favorite resort I have only 8 more days until I return there, my kids love it so much that they don't care if they go to the parks because of all the stuff thats going on there last time we had to drag them to the parks it was hysterical. I think its so funny how your older son looks just like you and your younger son looks just like your husband LOL.

Loved reading your report. I started having nightmares again about transportation after reading the update. When we were there in Apr 2008, the transportation was HORRIBLE!! I am going to write a TR about that trip. I am hoping to start it this weekend and I will go into more detail about our transportation nightmare!

So sorry I didn't see your post asking me about the postcard before I mentioned it myself. Thank you SO much! I had forgotten about this and Amelia was just beyond thrilled over it. You really made her day!

Hi Nichole! I did like the Rose and Crown! It would be GREAT for dinner and Illuminations!

Ok the attack birds...I would have done the exact same thing if it was one of my kids. I believe I may have done something similar once or twice already We have to get our laughs anyway we can, right
The boys had so much fun designing their T-shirts! Yes, sometimes it is necessary to laugh AT our children!!

Design your tee looks like fun. Will have to check that out for sure

I can't believe that bus driver waved and then drove off...I would have ran after it too, saying a few choice words

Glad you had a nice dinner at Kona

Is that cotton candy in that ice cream cone? That looks so good
Hi Kelly! The whole bird thing was SO FUNNY! Yes, that is cotton candy in the cone!

Cute that your boys tshirts are enemys. NY Yankees & NY Mets. Talk about a house divided.
Yes, we are a house divided when it come to baseball, makes for some very interesting games!! We did eventually find the path!

Kona again looks so yummy--- it is on our list for sure soon!

I want to see the boys shirts... that is a fun thing for that age!

Glad you got to use your FPs from the AM.
Thanks Laura! I agree, they probably will no longer allow front of the monorail riding!

Looking forward to the next installment.

WELCOME BACK Erika!! I am glad you joined us again!

I can't wait to see how the shirts turn out--my kids wanted to do it but we just didn't squeeze it in.

I know just how you feel about the monorail pictures-we have some from when we rode up front and it's unsettling to look at them now.
I agree HOT doesn't begin to describe it! Maybe you could do the t-shirts next trip, the boys used their own money and really enjoyed it!

Nothing is worse than being in a hurry to get somewhere and the bus making so many stops. Coming back from Animal Kingdom our bus stopped at Blizzard Beach. My sister had a drink in a cup, (I know no eating or drinking on the bus) she had it sitting on the raised area where the tire is, fell asleep and as I was drifting off too she lost her grasp on it spilling it on both of us! What a rude way to be woken up! We still laugh about it and she was only allowed to bring water bottles with closed caps on the buses after that. Her excuse was she would never have fallen asleep if we had just gone straight back to the resort without the extra stop.

We missed out on making shirts, so much to do and not enough time. I can't wait to see your finished products.
That story about your sister is HILARIOUS!!! Yes, Eric keeps us all laughing! You would be surprised to learn that he is VERY quiet and shy in school

With the "BAD BAD Bird scene" it is soooooooooo hard to keep a straight face and not laugh with/about kids sometimes, especially when it is something that is clearly serious to them and it really is just so funny and not at all serious.. "bad mommy"!!!!

You all have smiles the whole time, so even with the bus "blues" a few times you all look like everyone was in high spirits!!!

Yes, the DTD bus in general is a pain b/c of all those dang stops! The boat from SSR does work well, not sure if you ever took the boat launch, but it is close to one of the DTD bus stops... GREAT POST!!!
Thanks so much! Thank goodness he regained his composure fairly quick! The boat was DEFINITELY a better option!!

Enjoying your TR. Poor Eric with the birds ... my sister still hates seagulls to this day. Kona Cafe looks delicious for dinner I have only eaten breakfast.

The design your own t-shirt looks like a fun activity. Great pics
