Can't wait to hear about Epcot next.
I agree! That's why I LOVE our Mom/Daughter only trips. We can have fun and do whatever, whenever, and not have to worry about pleasing or not pleasing everyone else.

I understand how Katie was feeling, I don't like ToT either!

That animation class looks like fun! I didn't know they had anything like that. Is it in the Art of Animation building?

I would be sick if I paid that much money and didn't stay any longer than that. Please tell me they went back to a park later!

We did the Animation class for the first time last trip and really liked it. We got to draw Pooh, one of my favorites.

No kidding! That's just crazy!! I think I would have waved bye-bye to those that wanted to leave while I continued to enjoy myself in the park until I was ready to go.

Sorry you had to leave the parks so early + miss One Man's Dream-- that really stinks. At least Chris stuck it out with you after his sister + nephews left!

Love it! Chris and I are super competitive and can't wait to try this ride on our visit! Any tips? He usually beats me too, but I'm bound and determined this trip!

Awwww...poor Katie on ToT! Who knows, maybe she'll try it again in the future!

So glad Declan finally got to meet McQueen!!!

We LOVE the animation studio too......glad you got to do it!

I can sympathize. My husband can totally take or leave WDW, with preference for the 'leave' part--and it's my favorite place in the world. I am the bouncing-on-the-bed-at-6-am kind when I am there.

If it's any consolation, I am really enjoying your TR so at least know you have some people who are vicariously enjoying your trip a ton!

Congrats for "winning" in TSM!

Done by 11am??

How cool the CMs helped you get your MIL's hat back. Disney magic!

Poor Katie and the ToT... I so know how she feels. Except I did my nails into strangers' arms...

Hurrah for finally meeting McQueen!

DH draws a nice Minnie!!

Can't wait to hear about Le Cellier lunch. I so hope everyone loved it!

Jasmine hated ToT this first time I made her go on....that's right....she tells everyone I forced her Ok, I probably did but she screamed at me on the ride that she hated me....I almost fell over, at that point I knew I shouldn't have forced her to go, but on the upside, she did go on the very next trip and then I couldn't keep her off

I love the animation studio....glad you got to do that!!! I love One Man's Dream too....Jasmine, not so much, but she goes to keep mama happy

I can't believe that your family was ready to leave at 10:30 ...that's unheard of........i thought when my DH has had enough at 2:00 that was ridiculous
What a lot of money to spend on park passes and not enjoy the parks....I just don't get it!
I can't wait to hear about Epcot!

Sorry she didn't enjoy TOT! I want my DD to go on it...but I know she would be scared!
You SIL sounds like my DH. We drove over to MK (it takes 90min to get there!)...spent 3 hours there and he is ready to go home !

Your DH's Minnie looks great. We will have to check it out next time!

I have been reading this trip report and I have to say I feel a bit for you Tricia.....LEAVE AT 10:30..... WHAT IS THAT ABOUT...the nephews didn't even want to stay...Your SIL has never been to park and she shells out 650 bucks for breakfast and a cup of tea...where was she going, to meet the Queen...what was so important she had to leave....

If I were you I'd take the kids by myself and do it the right way.....life is too short to spend it forcing people to relax and have a little fun

Sorry to hear about that your SIL and nephew's left early. Between that and spending time in Tampa and at the beach, I know you lost some Disney time which I'm sure you wasn't happy about. Well, at least you and the family had fun in Tampa and at the beach. Hope you all had a great day despite them leaving early. But, good news that you and your family have another trip planned with friends.

Oh Trish!

That's only barely a half day at that! How frustrating. I do think it gets easier as kids get older and you see family more to just say, you go back, we are staying. I'm glad at least you stayed to see Lightening.

Good for Katie for being open to try TOT again next time. Kids are amazingly resilient and then alternatively traumatized and I swear, you never know which one will stick!

Last PP pic? Already????????????????
