You know my older boy finally admitted that he didn't mind it but he said it was too loud! I had to laugh, okay the music is too loud, but the sounds on some of the roller coasters is NOT!!! BTMRR?? I have to cover my ears!

They do seem to like the others, Peter, the Tea Cups, even the barnstormer still... They love the carousel.

You know it just works for us. We tried Chef Mickey's last October because I just happened to get an ADR for an 8:15 ressie there. I was so thrilled thinking I should try it since it even appeared, and after the experience, we both agreed that no one was really ready to eat that much breakfast that early. We get our money's worth (especially for the kids!) if it is a later time . It is practically empty, maybe four or five tables on our side of the restaurant at that point. And there was plenty of food. They open for lunch at 11:30, so they take their last time slot at 10:25 I believe. That has worked for us everytime. DS's still could do the round the restaurant march, etc.

How great that you guys lucked out and were able to enjoy a nice dinner basically alone! And you still made it over to the MK for the parade and fireworks
Oh yes, the pool time was a requirement. DH really insists on it, and for the right reason. I can go go go, but that heat even gets to me. That is why I was out at night after bed time!!!

The views were very cool. We watched the fireworks from there one night, too. AND yes, we lucked out at Narcoossee's! I know I felt like such a bad mommy, but it was good that they got some rest. We had a nice extra few hours in the park as a result! They chowed down there!

Sounds like a perfect day - and although you did have cloudy skies I was so glad it stayed dry.
Hmmmm.... I don't go to Outback Steakhouse too often, but that drink sounds like a bellini! Yum! The Raspberry cocktail had a funny name, I will see if I can find it. It had muddled raspberries in it, really tasty! We did enjoy dinner, unexpectedly alone!

We were fortunate. It "misted" for maybe a few minutes, but it didn't rain. I was expecting it to, but we did luck out for sure.

Day 2 - your day sounded perfect and a lovely meal had before spending a good evening at MK with your boys Loved the idea of your poolside drinks and lounge at the top of BLT. You never know maybe I will have some pixie dust too and enjoy a glass of wine with our meal one evening

ugh on the wait for Jedi! that's brutal. I have a feeling I'll be hitting the guym this trip, we are just gone for too long not too but then of course that means I need to make room in my suitcase for tennis shoes.



I enjoy Sci Fi for lunch. Not my kind of menu for dinner but for lunch and to escape the heat, perfect!

I don't know if it's just the pics but the BLT pool looks cooler than the main Contemporary pool, which one did you like better?

Narcoossee's is right up there with Cali Grill in my book! We really enjoyed it!

Oh you know it was a great evening... LOL! I actually could have a conversation with my husband! WOW! It was a pleasant surprise, but of course we really were grateful they took a nap, because we had a great rest of our evening as a result!

It was a drag missing here -- we only had one day and a 1/2 day to try and make it work, but I liked chatting with her just the same! The weather did hold out, I know that was NOT the case just a few nights before! AND truly, BLT rocks. I was soooo loving it. Can't wait to try the 1 bedroom some time.

It was a really hot morning that day, not sure why. But the pool took care of that, and our evening back at DHS was great as a result! Oh, TOTALLY try that drink next time! VERY tasty...

Yeah, I know. I wish they would come up with a better plan...

Oh try one! Just eat it right away in the heat. We didn't finish all of it, and the rest was just yuck because of the cream cheese frosting... not quite melted zebradome "yuck" but not good...

Can't wait to read about your experience at WCC.

I just looked at our ADR list and we have lunch at Sci-Fi scheduled on the same day as our WCC dinner. Great minds
That IS funny! Well, it worked for us! We didn't eat a big meal b/c we wanted to save room for the skillet at WCC. Very relaxing atmosphere -- the movie clips were funny!

Sci-Fi lunch is a tradition for us, love the atmosphere in there and it's so nice to get out of the heat for a bit and sit in some AC
I agree! It is strange, but that seems to be the only way to really do DHS if you want to get on TSM! Sci-FI was great fun, and we really liked it!!!

I don't blame you for not waiting in that line for Jedi Academy. Ick.

I can't wait to hear about WCC! I want to eat there someday.

I don't know if it's just the pics but the BLT pool looks cooler than the main Contemporary pool, which one did you like better?
Oh I felt your pain with the shoes.... my whole family. TOTAL shoe hogs. I brought shoes for my work part of the trip (dressy summer slides/wedges) as well as all my park flops and pool flops, and chucks (which I didn't wear) and Sneakers... So yeah, we had a whole duffle with shoes for both DH and I. Boys brought four pair each too... We are a shoe family.

I had heard much that the menu is pretty much a basic lunch fare, and that was fine for us, we really wanted to try it for that reason. We split something and really it was to get the kids a good lunch, since we had an extra TS for them. The BLT pool is much more "modern" in its style -- but this is because it is newer. The Contemporary pool is like the Contemporary itself. Retro-ish. I didn't take many photos. From other pics you would probably get a better idea. It has a really neat new kid splash area, and it has a quiet pool right on the edge of the lake, the main pool is pretty basic, the slide bigger. My kids really liked the splash zone at the Contemporary, but were more active on the mini slide and bigger slide at BLT. As an adult, I liked The Contemporary pool area better, better view, more open.

With the Jedi training, it would have to be a huge "must" for my kids for me to stand in that line. We lucked out that DS8 was chosen last October before they changed the practice. But if more families get to and are fine with the format, then it works out alright in the end I am sure.

Looks like a fun morning at DHS! I'm not entirely in love w/ that park either. Although I do the Brown Derby!

I'm not sure what to think about the Jedi Academy changes. I had heard there were lots of complaints that "my kid was disappointed b/c she/he wasn't picked." But I also think that's part of life, right? I don't know. But if there is a way to satisfy more people then I suppose that is the way to go! I just pray I never have a kid who "needs" to stand in that line.

Great pics in Sci Fi. I agree it's a great place for lunch. We just had awful service there last year... that was the problem. But burgers and fries-- YUM.

You have me sold on the Tangerine Dream. Will be checking that out next time!

What a great first two days!! I'm with ya on the heat, it was hot. I kept hoping for clouds because even just that made it seem so much cooler!!

We did the later brunch thing a couple of times and we are sold on it. It really does make much more sense for the money!

We didn't do Jedi Training again this time because of the new line system. Ben had done it in Jan. 08 and again last summer when it was the old way of getting picked. I totally get that it wasn't the most fair way but this new way of standing in line for what could be quite a long time doesn't seem like the best choice either. Seems like there has to be a better way?? I think that our days with it are over anyways as he didn't even think about doing it for more than a nanosecond...

Can't wait to hear about WCC!! We haven't eaten there since '06 as there's nothing on the menu that my little one will eat.

HI!!!! Well first let me say welcome home I hope you had a fabulous trip, too! I think you had the chance to meet WigD and MeMom, yes??!! LUCKY duck! WigD and Shocker are reason enough to go back to Disney!! So much fun! And I am sorry that we didn't get to meet up -- I had gotten so side tracked with being there, that I didn't think about meets fast enough !

Well I am sure the Jedi program allows for those willing to wait some security. And I understand that. But I too agree there could be another way. More like KP passes or something. Well WCC was great! From our standpoint. DH5 and 8 both like fried chicken and ribs, one more than the other on both accounts, so they each got chicken on their skillets, and we just requested extra ribs in our skillet. I can see how if you don't like that kind of food this restaurant would not be a high priority ! But both times, basically a year apart, we have not been disappointed.

I am looking forward to your TR, too!!!!

Oh I agree, it is their way of trying to make it more magical technically, ensuring that you can do it -- IF you are willing to wait/waste basically 2hours or more in line. Of course if it is important to your kid then it isn't a waste, but the people in that line didn't look happy... I'd think they could come up with a better way. I wish they would! It just didn't look fun.

MMMMMM the burgers did look good, but the sandwiches were, too. Food wasn't memorable but it was simple good fare for that time of day.

Oh, DO try one. They have them in the slushie machines at Hurricane Hannah's!!!!!! An easy drink at the BC!!!

I agree there isn't that much at DHS for little ones, but as an adult I love that park!! GMR is one of my faves of all time!!

I so know what you're talking about with the heat...it can be so brutal in Florida!!! The idea of going back to the pool and chilling was a great ONE!!!

OOOH can't wait to hear about dinner at WCC!

I saw your photo on Diane's TR, she and I did actually end up meeting afterall, it was so funny, at the IG, just a few hours before we were leaving, I was such a wreck from the pool, but I just wanted to meet in person. So maybe next summer!!!
Let's rewind:

Emily had an urgent care visit at Vero Beach = ear infection

While she was there Luke almost lost his big toe to stitches behind a door = EMT visit... now no toenail

The day we hoped to meet I woke up with an echo and no hearing, so off to urgent care= Ear infection

We are healthy people, Em's first ear infection ever! Luckily Kona, Poly pool and the Water Parade ended a rough day for us!

ACK!!!!!!!!! Okay, hats off to you -- doesn't that take the cake, you get the final visit to the urgent care center... Us moms, I tell you... some how I thought it was all tied to the ear and ONE ear at that!

Glad everyone is better -- and the new toe nail is growing in

Finally getting over here. You started the report while we were in Disney World, so that's my excuse for the first few pages. Getting back into real life, that's my excuse for the next few.

I was supposed to be going to a teacher workshop today, but by chance I logged onto my employee e-mail this morning to see that as of 4:08 yesterday, it has been cancelled. Good thing I looked, because there was a carload of us going, and we would have been pretty aggravated to go all the way downtown and find out it was cancelled. I rarely check my employee e-mail in the summer, so that was just pure luck.

Anyway, I get to have some extra DIS time today. I am going to catch up on all the action I missed while we were gone. I look forward to going along on this trip with you.
