Is that a peanut butter & jelly pizza? YUCK!

That is actually the only thing I really liked at Goofys! I had had it before at Chef Mickey's in Walt Disney World. It is only PB&J on the crust, no sauce or cheese or anything. To me it is really open faced toast!

I called vacation planning and gave them an idea of what I wanted in the basket and how much to spend. I was charged $25 for the basket & delivery plus the cost of merchandise (around $90). We would have probably bought most of the merchandise anyhow and the $25 was worth it to give DS the magic he thought he was too old for!

We were in WDW for NYE last year as well ... and yes, it was FABULOUS!

Just finished reading your entire Trip Report. Very entertaining. Thanks for sharing.

And that is sweet that your DS wanted his last ride to be GRR - sounds like he really liked that ride!

Just realized that you never mentioned some of the biggies at CA - California Screamin, Soarin, ToT. The California Screamin' roller coaster is a big favorite of me and my daughter.

We did Soarin' ... no Screamin' or ToT for us! DS and I are scaredy cats when it comes to the thrill rides! I was hoping he would take after his Dad and like them but no such luck!

I just read your report, Vicki.
Thank you so much for sharing your vacation with us.
We are a family of three as well, so I can relate (only I have a DD).
LOVE LOVE LOVE all the food porn, too!

I hope you make it back out here another day. DL is my favorite.

Thank you for the kind words! We took a mini-vacation last week and I have been swamped at work this week so I haven't been on the Dis for a bit. So nice to see your kind words!

Totally going thru Disney withdrawals right now ... nice to relive our trip a bit!

I'm still catching up with your second trip report (mom and son eat the world part 2), but I think it's wonderful how close you are to your son. You two seem to have a wonderful relationship.

On a side-note, he reminds me of pictures of my ex-boyfriend when he was younger. Random!
