Dance to the petals on the streams running down,
they're there for you singing, just to lose that frown.
Dance from the song you feel beat within your heart,
it beats within you naturally loving from the start.

I thought of you when we were in Branson for the day a few weekends ago. They opened a RideMakerz shop there too! I am so glad that you had fun making the rides after the stress of being lost! Ty looks so happy!

We were in the newer area, with the brightly colored villas. We were right at the beginning of it so there was no shortcut to the village. We drove most of the time.

Oh that is cool. I hope they get alot more shops out there! He was definately having a blast. We had to have lots of conversations about shipping them home There was definately an easier way to do it we just didn't realise it at the time. More to come on the shipping saga

Day 3 Epcot!



Day 3 Monday EPCOT

When we were all done with Ridemakerz they informed us something was going on in the parking lot and we probably wouldn't be able to get to our car as they had it roped off. But thankfully it wasn't in the area where our car was so off we went. If I'm not mistaking I do believe we took a few wrong turns again but all was well and we made it!

It began to rain while we were waiting in line to get our bags checked. We tried to stay out of it but just gave up and moved on We grabbed the first photopass photographer we saw and here we are


We knew we didn't have a lot of time at this park because we had our Chef Mickey's reservations for that day which was fine as we knew what we wanted to ride and just headed for those.

First up was Test track. Ty would not hold on for anything but instead he held his ears so I'm trying to hold him up since there was no one next to him. We'd take off and to the side he'd go Sierra finally let go of her ears and held on. We all loved it!

After Test Track we headed over to Mission space. Tim and Sierra rode it since Ty didn't want to ride it. They went on the mild one but once they got off had wished the rode the one that spins.

Then we headed to the VIP Lounge to take a cool down and get some drinks. It was really neat. Very futuristic. I know I took pics of it but I don't see them.If I find them I will add them later.

We went from the VIP lounge to Space Ship Earth which is such a nice relaxing ride.

That was pretty much it for Epcot and we headed up front to refresh so Ty could put his Chef Mickey's shirt on.

This was my first encounter with the wheelchair and the monorail ramps in 100 degree heat index. It was HOTTT!!!

Next up-Chef Mickeys-How does Ty do with the Characters? humm....

Day 3 cont'd CHEF MICKEYS

Day 3 Monday Cont'd

Now we are off to Chef Mickeys. We loved the monorail ride. That is one of the very things we were looking forward to riding. Sierra and Ty really enjoyed it.

We got to the Contemporary pretty early. Our ressie was at 5:05pm and I think we got there a little after 4. We sat at some seats near the entrance of Chef Mickey's. Before we knew it they were lining up quick so we got in line and it went pretty quick. We had our picture taken with the Mickey Statue


then we were asked to have a seat till our beeper went off but we barely hit the seat and they called our names. We had a great table on the end. We loved this place. their food was soo good. We had no idea what to expect as it was our first Character dining ever and we absolutely loved it. I don't think we could stop smiling the whole time.






And a VERY special picture






And I LOVED this picture so I took a pic of it


Ty did great with the characters. He loved them so much that he wanted me to call and schedule a tuck in with Mayor Clayton. Something I thought he would NEVER do. But he wouldn't even stop asking me until I made THE phone call to schedule it(this is another reason to have your Village Guide with you at ALL times) So I called right from Chef Mickeys and got it scheduled for that very night. This made him even more happier. He was so excited. Sierra was just glowing through the entire dinner. We couldn't get enough of those mashed potatoes

So we get to the villa and Sierra and Tim go swimming and Ty does some scavengering and I tidy up the villa just a bit. I called my mom (as I did every night) hey I had to check on my doggies! Then it is time to get in and get dresssed for bed. Mayor Clayton was coming just after 9pm so we had to work quickly!

These are pictures I will cherish for a very long time. I was laughing so hard at Mayor Clayton I had tears streaming down my face. Part of it was that he was so funny but part of was I was taking in what was occuring. My child who used to not want anything to do with characters was letting this Rabbit tuck him in. And he was so serious. He made sure NOT to move an inch once he was tucked in LOL.



Sierra was giggling the entire time. I dont think she could stop if she tried to


A great end to a great day. Full of so many wonderful memories!

Next up Day 4 -Magic Kingdom So who has a melt down???

I love the Chef Mickey's update! I am glad you liked the food. We have only had breakfast there before. I also enjoyed reading about your Epcot experiences. The bunny tuck-in pictures are so cute! I think Disney magic turns us all back to little kids!
