Thank you Mel. I take that in a good way. I come from a family of clowns. Not really cause I would have had to run away. But at least we know a good joke when we hear one.

Now that I have purchased Ashton's 2009 Mickey, we've walked around a bit and I've taken a picture of my rule breaker hubby in the pizza delivery truck thingie, it's time to get ready for Downtown Disney. We knew we would be early for our 9:00 p.m. ADR but we wanted to get in some real "Disney" time.

I don't know about ya'll but we have traveling clothes and we have vacation clothes. Traveling clothes are the kind of clothes that are just really comfy and worn in. Nothing shabby but nothing to look at either. We still had on our travelin' clothes and because we didn't want to look like hillbillies come to town, we changed into our vacation clothes. We probably still look hillbillies come to town but at least we had ourselves fooled.

Clothes changed, we headed to the bus stop. We found out that the Old Port Royale bus stop was much closer to our room than the Martinique one was so that's the one we went to. We waited about 15 minutes for a Downtown Disney bus to come which wasn't too bad. Sometime during the trip, we realized that the later in the afternoon it was, the more frequently the Downtown Disney buses ran.

We got off at the Downtown Disney Marketplace stop and then walked over to the World of Disney. I was in search of a new wallet because I didn't find one last year and a 3x t-shirt for the boss. John was in search of the Disney golf hat and t-shirts combo. Hunter and Lacey were looking around and chillin'. Just happy to be in Disney. Lacey and I started off in one direction and John and Hunter went in another.

After about an hour of looking around, we bought nothing. Zilch! It wasn't because we didn't find anything. We knew we were coming back to DTD another day. It was mostly a "feel the place out" kind of shopping trip.

We meander our way over to T-Rex. I say meander...I should have said we worked our way through the thick crowds to T-Rex. There were so many people standing around and there were two lines so it was hard to tell where I needed to go to check in. I finally saw the giant rock looking podium and made my way up to it. We were about 20 minutes early but they said we would be seated shortly and I was told to stand in the line next to the podium.

This sign was directly above my head:


After about a 10 minute wait, they called our name and we were taken to our table. The hostess was very nice, asking us if we had been there before and was it our first trip to Disney. It was really hard to talk to her with all the noise around us and she had her back to me while we were walking. But, still, she was nice.

We were seated in the ice room which was really cool. We weren't at our table maybe 5 minutes before our waitress came around. Her name was Jen. Lacey, being her silly self, said "cool name". The girl looked at her funny and said "your name must be Jen". Lacey said "nope, just a cool name." We just laughed. Jen didn't quite know what to take of us. She took our drink order and said she'd be back to see if we had decided on what we wanted to order.

I took some pictures, of course. Lacey and Hunter:


This little guy was behind us:


Then, I realized I should be looking at the menu, not my surroundings. In no time at all Jen was back with our drinks and we had decided what we wanted. Hunter, ever the picky eater, ordered the kids' pizza. Lacey, a semi picky eater, ordered the half order of ribs with double waffle fries (to share with her brother). I ordered the four appetizer plate as an entree. John ordered the full rib plate (Mega Messa Bones) with slaw and beans.

Now, that I've told ya'll all that, here's some pictures. I got up from our table and took these two:





These are pictures of the ice room. Every once in a while, there is a meteor shower and the room changes colors. Really cool:


*****Interruption: Boss just called from the Judge's office. He needs me to sprint a document over to him. Back later.

How cool is that? It looks really great. I hope the food was good. We liked Rainforest so I'm sure it is close to the same. Just different atmosphere. Sorry you missed the sign. Alex would have loved that place

I'm still waiting for our pizza - hurry up, John

T-Rex looks like a lot of fun We had lunch at the RFC at DTD last time and that was fun too. T-Rex had just opened, but our boys really wanted to see RFC, so off we went LOL Perhaps this time, we'll go to T-Rex! Can't wait to see what you thought of your meals there. Ribs are so hit-and-miss at restaurants, aren't they?!

Geez, didn't you tell your boss that I said to stop messing with your DISsing?! Bahahahaha

Your T-Rex pics are bringing back great memories. I loved that place. But it was so LOUD! Definitely lots to look at, and I don't know about you, but I seriously enjoyed my meal there. I got the brontosaurus burger. Mmmm. All this dieting I've been on lately, don't you know my mouth is watering thinkin about that!

Mean boss man. Interrupting our update!

Hey girls! Sorry I've been MIA all day. I went out to find this specific fireworks sticker (it has Mickey and Minnie, from the back, with Mickey's arm around Minnie and then a bunch of fireworks sticker-of course I only needed the fireworks stickers, not Mickey and Minnie ). I found it at the first store I went to, but I also found a pirate sticker that says "Walk The Plank". You know I had to grab it! The problem? There was only ONE (it didn't occur to me until about 4 stores later that I could have asked them if they had more). So I've checked every other store in town and they didn't have it. I'm sure then next time I go to Joann's they'll have it, but I hate waiting. It's going to be AWESOME (along with this Pirate Mickey sticker I have-and I got an extra one of those at Hobby Lobby, so I have two) on the MK page for the day the boys are going to Pirate League.

ANYWAY...SUPER COOL TREX pics! I so can't wait. It's the first thing we're doing after check-in and it will mean WE ARE IN DISNEY. Our ADR is for 3:30. Can't wait to see more pictures. Your family is so fun. I would love to be sitting at the next table watching you.

Ginny, I'm PMing you right now-but you have to send me yours too-and so do the rest of you! You know who you are!!!

Great updates! I love the pics from CBR, we only stayed there once, back in 2003 and your pics are making me wonder why we haven't been back. Enjoying the T Rex pics, I think yours are the first I've seen. Looking forward to more.

I am so not into dinosaurs and I thought the place was really neat. I was looking around like a little kid in a candy store.

I know! I hate being interrupted but this was for a good cause....a civil arrest warrant for somebody who wouldn't give the kids back to their dad even though he had sole custody. So, I guess we will have to excuse the boss this time.

It looks like John is running a little late on his pizza deliveries. Thank goodness we don't have that "deliverred in 30 minutes" or less clause.

T-Rex is a lot of fun. It's very similar to the Rainforest Cafe. Just different animals.
