Happy Mother's Day!! I did not get on DIS so I missed wishing it to you on the actual day. :

Ewe--you need to work on Dayne not eating pizza out all night I see many of those nights/days at college next fall...

I have to say it is funny about the Roasted Chicken. I sure hope he succeeded. We had roasted chicken tonight for dinner
Thanks! Stephanie -- I could not believe they were eating left over pizza they did that the enitre trip (they would ride the bus to DTD walk to Hess and order a pizza for $7 or 8 --it was their dinner and breakfast)
No problem on the MD wishes we had a great day w/my parents...we celebrated MD my dad's bday, and Dayne's graduation w/a crawfish boil...

It's been several years since we've been in Carrousel of Progress. Seeing your pictures makes me wanna go back.

Add me to the list of "I don't know why but I like the TTA" people. It's a nice and relaxing way to see Tomorrowland.

Glad to hear that your Dad found something he liked to eat.
Yes, dad found something to eat for the trip...I just had to see what CS was offering some type of roasted chicken and he was happy...they really just needed to seperate from us in the evenings or lunch and go to a SD and just wait I'm sure the waits were not too bad...

Sorry to hear about your friend.
Thanks! Kayce Ashton loved the dog and was amazed at the figures behind the curtain areas...

That was our first and only RD...Gwendolyn made it to the Epcot one and said it was much better in her opinion...we thought we had missed it and rode spaceship Earth instead (I was expecting it to be in the front of the park not by innoventions)

Thanks! April
it is so funny I told my parents that we were thinking of going to HI and they are trying to tallk us out of it...they have traveled all over the world and when a person says where they are thinking of going they bring up all the negatives...they just keep telling us IT IS SO EXPENSIVE! well so is Disney! than she tells me what about Gwendolyn's wedding... don't they have to be engaged first and announce their intentions ...so, we really think we are doing HI but we have been tossing around **get ready for it*** a Disney cruise w/disney days (I think that will be 2012 but I could not believe Danny actually brought it up)...

Sunday cont. Fantasyland

So, I left off we were finishing our lunch; Dayne and Luke had just met up with us...so off we go. As we were walking from one land to the next Gwendolyn asked if she could ride the tea cups with Ashton. Well, we had just eaten so I asked if we could wait (bad idea--with such a large group we never made it back! ) So, on we go our first stop Winnie the Pooh's honey pots--Ashton loves this ride (last year we rode it about 6 times; this year once)...WAIT TIME 5 MIN! it was about 7 but still could not believe how quick...while we rode this Dayne, Luke, and Joe walked over to Splash Mountain and BTM to get fast passes; SM for everyone but my parents and I and BTM for Danny and I.

from Winnie the Pooh we walked over to Mickey's Philharmagic...NO WAIT! we walked right in...we had to wait once we were let in but we were the first at the inner doors (we waited about three minutes)
Dayne has just called so we were waiting for the guys in the line area of Mickey Philharmagic

two of the few pictures I was able to snap of Dayne and Luke, each time I would point the camera they would turn their head...but, Dayne did ask when we were home if I had any picutres of them

OK! I'm going to get Boo's on this but we did not ride Dumbo... I have never ridden Dumbo...the line is always waaaaayyyy too long and in the sun. If I ever make it there at night we will give it a try! I promise. We also skipped the carousel...I thought again I would come back to it...EMH was tonight and we had plans to come back Ashton and I in FL and the older group in AL.

so moving on...
what is next?!? Snow White. I really thought I took a few pictures but I do not have any. Ashton rode with my parents again I really thought I took photos I am going to go back and check maybe they did not load to photobucket...
so moving on....
next up?!? Peter Pan you say...NOOOO!! wait time 45 min
so, we decided we would save it for EMH along with the others...
so on we go to the last attraction in Fantasyland..."It's a Small World after all" my mom' favorite ride and Luke's first time!


ASHTON really liked it this year; he did not know where to look...

after Small World we found the rest room next to Peter Pan
thought about waiting the line out again...and again decided against it...
up next our long wait in Liberty Square and why is Connie losing her patience with this group of people!
and we are only on day 1 still
NOTE**just remember if you are in a group and you decide to find a smoke area while parking the stroller
or get a turkey leg...you should be nice enough to tell the people who are waiting on you; you decided not to ride the next attraction**

Great update! You know- I have never ridden Dumbo, either. I'm going to be sure to do that on my next trip.

Great pics Connie! My mom and I love the TTA also!

Your pics are making me a little sad I skipped The Carousel of Progress this year, so I might just have to google the song and listen to it to cheer myself up again.

Don't worry, you're not missing anything by not riding Dumbo! That was one of our longest waits, and your right, the sun is killer. I didn't think I'd make it with that large backpack. That's one thing that makes me super excited about the Fantasyland expansion!

Great update. And I promise NOT to tell Mark that you didn't ride Dumbo. We ride this every trip; we either do it right after our 8:05 a.m. ADR at Crystal Palace because we are at the rope by the Castle before they open up or we do it on Extra Magic Hour morning...Mark would be very depressed if we did not ride Dumbo at least once (and how old is my husband again???).

Hey Connie! Doing some cathing up right now!

What a lovely day at MK so far. Ashton's reaction to a lot of the attractions in FL are the same reactions that Cooper has as well. No flames from me...We don't do Dumbo every time we go to the MK. We only ride if we happen to come across a very small line or if it is the very first thing we do that day.

I know about the we'll do it later thing. There were several atrtractions at MK, I kept saying we would do later, we had 3 days there, and still didn;t get back to some of them.
I don't think I could do more than 1 day with family. LOL! I like to do alot and my family (parents, sisters, etc) have a totally different style than I do.
