Isn't it weird how how the strange people you don't know come on and comment and sub and stalk your TR...oh wait I'm officially one of those strange people. So...started at Rosies then to Winkers and now to you. This story is way too good think I'll have to check out Jordan's next.

Congrats on the DVC and can't wait to read more.

That was too funny!

At the moment we are re-thinking our June plans. We were to do 4 at WDW and 2 at US/IOA. However, that would actually cost us more than doing a 6 night MYW ticket w/hoppers + 1 day ticket to waterpark. Soooo, I think we are going to save US/IOA for next year. Since we've already gone on a vacation once this year(out of pocket), we need to keep the costs down on this one. Now I get to start re-figuring our day to day plans.

Not weird at all! We all start out somewhere. Oh boy, if you are going over to Jordans you better get crackin'!! His PTR/TR is a doozie!! Don't let that stop you, though! It is a must read!

You are so right! I thought right after I posted that, that I'd get to start. Here it is an hour later and I'm back and attempting to START again since I didn't get to an hour ago.

Day 1 part 2....

When I left you we were about to ride Soarin' with our fastpasses from earlier. We head down the line and only had about a 5-10 minute wait. Did I mention that the park was CROWDED this day?? It wasn't at summer time capacity but to me it was close. Definitely not like the usual February crowds.

Anyway, it is almost our turn. We have our "line number" and we are waiting and watching the pre-video. The mom in front of me turns to me and asks if we've ridden this before. She asks if it's scary and if her kids will freak out. I give her a quick run down on it and tell her the lies that I told my son when we first rode it......"it just FEELS like you are up high but your really not" ( ) We have a quick giggle and now it's time to board. We head to our row (ROW 1, BY THE WAY!!! SCORE!!!). We are strapping the kids in and realize there are 2 of us standing there and only one seat left. Ok, so the CM mis-counted for the line. Another CM came over to see why we weren't seated yet. They see what the problem is and since myself, DH and DS are the last 3 on the row they apologize and ask us if we would please wait for the next ride. We say "sure, no problem" and I start to unbuckle DS from the seat. That's when I hear the lady who was so sweet and nice to me in the line only 2 minutes ago say "WELL SHE SHOULD LEAVE BECAUSE THEY HAVE RIDDEN IT BEFORE!!!" Her husband tells her to quiet down and she say's "I DON'T CARE". I just look over my shoulder at her and smile as I walked away. She knew she made an idiot of herself. I didn't have to say a word. Besides, yes we've ridden the ride before and yes, we are WDW veterans. You know what that means?? That means that I KNOW that we are going to receive a little pixie dust for the mistake. And in true Disney style that's EXACTLY what happened. When it was our turn to ride, we got front row again (of course) and we were also given a fast pass voucher to any ride in the park that we wanted to use it on!! This means that we WOULD get to ride DS's favorite ride at Epcot......TEST TRACK before dinner! We were beginning to think that wasn't going to happen.

Fast pass voucher! Sorry it's blurry. I was trying to walk and take a pic at the same time.


As we were leaving Soarin' I got a text from Jordan saying they had just found Nemo! We started to walk out of the land pavillion and who should we run right into?? JORDAN, WINKERS & DJAY!!!!! We had a nice chat and shared some laughs. I told them about what had just happened on Soarin' and showed them our handy dandy voucher. Why we didn't take any pictures during this time is beyond me. I was so excited to see everyone again the thought didn't even cross my mind. Besides, this night was to be our dinner at The Wave anyway. We knew we were all meeting up in a few short hours.

When we left the group we headed over to Test Track and got our first ride on!! It was a ton of fun as usual. Here is our photo pass picture. (quick comment about the photo pass CD. I wasn't going to get one this trip but I finally caved after receiving the email coupon after our trip!)

I wonder if one of the guys in the back seat could pass for Rosie's "hot italian".

DS in front of "Bumblebee" as he calls it. (he loves Transformers!)


After Test Track we left Epcot and headed back to OKW to freshen up and get ready for dinner at The Wave! I had brought gifts for everyone and had to gather them all up before we left. I gave each person a pretty Disney ink pen and also a "themed" gift. I based each theme off of the contents of their PTR's.

At about 5:30 we arrived at The Wave inside the Contemporary resort.

It was a really nice restaurant. The first person to arrive was Rosie!! We gave each other a big hug and sat in the waiting area for about 2 minutes when our buzzer went off. Our table was ready!!! WOW, that was FAST!! I sent out a text to Winkers and Jordan (i think) telling them that we already have a table. I think they grabbed a cab to get there a little faster. Jordan said that his cousin Wendy (WendyO from his TR's) and her family had arrived! They were actually staying at The Contemporary in Bay Lake Tower! As they got settled into the room, we had dinner. Here is a picture of the gang! Sorry mine is a little blurry. I brought my little point and shoot to dinner rather than lugging the bigger camera. I never learn! Anyway, our poor server actually stood there and took a picture with each of our cameras!! She was a really good sport.


We started by catching up a bit and letting everyone get their drink orders in. Then it was time to exchange some gifts!! I have been debating on whether I should post about the gifts that I got each of them or just let them do it. I have decided that I can post about it and when they post on their TR's they can let us in on what they were thinking when they got the gifts.

As I mentioned before, I themed the gifts from their own PTR's. Let me first apologize for not having taken ANY photo's of them actually receiving their gifts!! I know, I know....BAD DISER!!

CONTINUED IN NEXT POST.......

Continued.....

So, let's start with Rosie.....I knew she was on the hunt for that HOT ITALIAN so I told her that I found something that might help her out.....


Then we moved on to Jordan. I remember him posting about how he admired this guy he saw on one of his previous trips that was wearing a kilt! As much as I would have LOVED to buy this man a kilt, I had no idea how expensive those things were until I started scouring the internet!! So, I got the next best thing...... A Kilt coozie for his drink.


Last but not least was Winkers (Cherie')! I knew from reading her last TR and her PTR that she'd been having some "issues" with MIL. I told her that I had brought her a gift straight from Louisiana to help her out. Sometimes you just need a little New Orleans voodoo! So I brought her a MIL voodoo doll....


I'm still wondering if she's been putting that thing to use. Her kitchen does seem to be coming along a lot faster since she's gotten home from the trip. I'm just sayin'.

Winkers and DJay told us that they had something for us too but that it was too big to bring to dinner. Ok, now I"m skeered!!

Rosie gave us a goodie bag filled with stuff!

Inside, I found a magnet from Niagra Falls where she lives, a yummy chocolate caramel heart candy, some wet wipes (thanks to Jordan's PTR), and a ziplock bag with two types of toilet paper.....one "folded" and one "scrunched". (You would have had to read Jordan and Winkers PTR's to get that one. ) She also included an English silver three penny bit!! They do not make these anymore. I thought that was very nice of her to include.

Thank you, Rosie!!

Here is a pic of my new magnet on my fridge along with my other Disney magnets! I try to get one from each trip.



Now on to dinner.........

This was our first table meal so I wasn't sure exactly how the food allergy thing would work just yet. I'm happy to say that I didn't even have to ask for the Chef. He was at our table right after we were seated!! At this particular meal, we were told that he was concerned about the bread in the buns for the hamburgers. I can't for the life of me remember what he said about the pasta marinara or if he said anything about it. He said that the cheese pizza will be okay and so that's what we got for DS. He also got the carrot sticks and the strawberry yogurt without the granola on top. This meal turned out to be very stress free for us. It was fantastic!!!

Now to remember what myself and DH got.....let me check the menu.....

Ah yes, I had the beef tenderloin but with the fingerling potato salad and avacado mousse on the side. Those didn't come with the beef tenderloin, they actually came with another dish (i think the flat iron steak) but they said I could mix it up like that so I did. I wanted to try the beef but I was intrigued by the sound of the avacado mousse.

The meal was good but not overly impressive. I am partial to my DH's steaks, though! What can I say... the man can GRILL!! I'm happy to say that the avacado mousse was a nice treat. I really enjoyed it.

I believe DH got the beef tenderloin too but had different sides. He didn't really care for his. I don't know why he continues to order grilled anything when he KNOWS he won't like it as well as his own. I keep telling him to branch out more.

CONTINUED IN NEXT POST (YES, AGAIN!)

Last continued....

Jordan taking a food porn picture of his food.


Fun and giggles at dinner....


Now, time for desert!! I think most of us ordered the same thing. We'll have to wait and see on everyone else's TR's. Here is the description:
Creamy Indulgence - Cheesecake with Raspberry Coulis, Coconut Panna Cotta with Passion Fruit Drizzle, Chocolate-Passion Fruit Mousse with Pecan-Olive Brittle


It was pretty good. The one in the middle was better if you sort of scraped some of the fruit juice from the top and ate the desert at the bottom.

This dinner was GREAT!! It was a wonderful restaurant at a wonderful resort at a table filled with wonderful friends and family! At one moment I thought to myself.....I WISH EVERY TRIP WAS LIKE THIS. We really loved being able to meet up with some friends on this trip.

Next up.........Wendy & Derek are semi-settled into their villa in Bay Lake Tower. Should we take a peek???

Aww, you're not a bad Diser. My gifts were mostly gag gifts and not real "presents".

I think I am the rude lady magnet. It always happens!! Remember stinky foot lady from the past trip?? (oh yeah, we talked about her this trip. I just remembered. )

I wish I could have gotten another FP out of the "other" incident 2 days later.

Perhaps I should try some "miracle grow" or get a tattoo to make myself look "tough" so I don't get picked on anymore.

Thanks Blue for trying to cheer me up with the No presents debacle.

I'm just gonna say--you hold your own with the rude people pretty well....not in a rude way, but just in a "I'm gonna protect my own" kinda way"
