That's right, I forgot, I can ask him questions I wanted to know, like which appliances/dishes/etc are not in the kitchen that I might have to bring from home.

A Day at Epcot

There is one thing I'm pretty set on with my plans... of course I will be flexible if the nights that Fantasmic show that week happen to fall on this day or something else that is unavoidable....

This is that we spend the day at Epcot on my birthday. The only problem I foresee with that is that my birthday might be our first park day. But it's my birthday, and that is where I want to spend it. My family can choose to join us or not, but my little family will be going no matter what

I came up with our Top Ten list for Epcot: (I have pictures to go with each thing for Jacks picture schedule, I might come back and post those later)

1. The Seas with Nemo

2. Soarin’

3. Test Track

4. Kidcot fun stops

5. Maelstrom

6. Gran Fiesta with the three caballeros

7. Illuminations

8. Turtle talk with crush

9. Pictures with Mickey and the gang

10. Spaceship earth


***Pick a pearl with the ladies (my birthday gift for myself )

Along with this was my idea for snacking our way around World Showcase:
Blue-country Red-dining establishment Green-food item(s)

Mexico Cantina de San Angel- Chips and salsa (this is assuming the refurb is done and that it reopens)
Norway Kringla Bakeri og café- Rice cream
China Joy of Tea Stand veggie egg roll
Germany Sommerfest hand twisted pretzel
Italy Tutto Italia Kiosk Tiramisu and Limonata
America Fife and Drum Tavern Turkey legFunnel Cake Kiosk Funnel cake w/sugar
Japan Kaki Gori Kaki Gori
Morocco Coffee and Pastries mint tea and Baklava
France Boulangerie Patisserie chocolate mousse
Crepes de france kiosk chocolate crepes
United Kingdom Rose and Crown Pub Fish and chips
Canada snack cart beer (it was the only thing I figured we could have, but we aren't really drinkers, but my dh and I can split one just for fun)

I don't think I took a pic of the computer room.... I turned it on 1 time just to see if it worked but I brought my notebook from home.

I'll try to get the pics on here at some point tonight.

Yeah MJ

Have you had the rice cream? Do you know if it is like Rice ice cream? because we buy rice dream ice cream, and Jack LOVES it.

Hey, thanks for popping in, yes my husband is from the Philly area originally. He mostly grew up in Bensalem, and I have learned how Philly fans are with their sports, and not just the guys I am originally from California, not really big into following sports, but some of my family members are, so makes for some interesting conversations sometimes. That and my Mom is a cowboys fan So they have some fun banter with each other.

Nice! Pick the ugliest one in the tank from what I've heard.

I really like your snacks around the world. Well, all but the turkey leg. I haven't had any of them but they all sound yummy to me.

And right after that he went out to the pool to "buy milk"? (You'll have to visit Tim's thread to know what that means.)

Oh gosh!! I"m so glad you asked this!! Because it's NOT like ice cream made with rice milk AT ALL!!!

It's rice cooked with milk until VERY soft, then it's folded gently into whipped cream. It's amazing! Sweet, but not overly so, and very light. We LOVED it when we had our lunch at Akershus!!!

That is what I hear too, the ugliest one in the tank.
I know about the turkey leg, that was a questionable one, but I've always been kind of curious, and since we are mostly just snacking that day I figure a little protein would be good for us. We would just buy one and each take a small piece.

I'm really looking forward to the kidcot stations. :-) I've enjoyed seeing other kids doing them in TR's

Sounds interesting, I'll keep it on the list, but will have to see if it is a safe food for Jack. With us snacking all day I figured I'd just pack him a variety of snacks for the day too, and if there is something he can eat, great, if not I'll get out one of his special snacks. He likes the idea of having food special for him.

Work has been tiring me out. Today was a good day though, Looks like I'll be moving up soon. But I'm also keeping my options open still, I'm applying to work as a program coordinator for an Autism Center, really hoping I can get my foot in the door, since my long term career goals involve working with children with autism. If it works out, I might end up working in two places this year. I don't know if it is a full time position or not, and my hours can be whatever I want where I work now.

I also realized last night that next month I'll have to start calling for ADR's. So I'll have to start finalizing some plans with regards to that.

Your plans for Epcot look great! Your top 10 list looks just like ours on our last trip! All our favorites! I still haven't done pick a pearl yet....hopefully next time!

Oh and the house you are going to be staying in looks amazing! Wow! We looked into a similar one and the boys fell in love with the Mickey rooms. So much so, that they had us promise we could stay in one on a future trip.

Can't wait to hear more of your plans.

Thanks, hope you get to do pick a pearl, I know it's a harder thing to do being the mom of all boys but since I'll have girls around, it gives me an excuse, that and the birthday. Plus I actually think my boys would get a kick out of picking something ugly I might need two carriages to put on one necklace.

more plans coming up next...

Day one plans and our plans for our first day in MK

The boys and I are planning a trip camping across the U.S. to California to visit family (one of my cousins is having his first baby this October-well you know his wife is having it, and another cousin is graduating high school) in June 2011, so I decided that this trip to Florida will only be at WDW. Which also allows for more relaxation.

So I have planned nothing for arrival day except getting settled and grocery shopping. If we want to we can head out to DTD or a resort to look around...

But our full Day One plans include:

Exploring DTD

swimming in the pool at the house
Dinner at Chef Mickeys



I figure that a dinner with Mickey is a great way to start off our trip. Especially since our first park day is Epcot (which I posted previously)


Then I'm planning Tuesday as our first day in MK (two days will be spent at MK on this trip) Waiting for park hours to get announced but we will either do a breakfast at Crystal Palace or see MK opening ceremony on this day, then do the opposite on day two.


Here is our top ten list of things to do in MK on day one:
1. Dumbo

2. Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

3. It's a Small World

4. Peter Pan

5. BTMRR

6. Buzz Light Year Spin

7. Tomorrowland Speedway

8. Jungle Cruise

9. Pirates of the Caribean

10. Find Push the trashcan


I don't know about counter service meals yet, That won't be decided until park hours get announced and I figure out the menu for the week for Jack.
