I never had long hair when I was a teenager (yup - I was a real trendsetter , but was sometimes mistaken for a boy), but I know now I panic when I can't find a hair clip!

Sounds like the perfect lunch experience complete with primo table. I'm surprised your uncle didn't look for a 13 year old boy with braces and ask them to kiss. That's what happened to Brian when he was 13! Our uncle called him "sparkey" and then made a general announcement until he could find a compatible brace-mate of the opposite sex. So funny!

Jackie, I love your teenage drama-filled updates.

Poor Chelsea! There's nothing worse for a teenage girl to have some kind of hair or fashion mishap. Next year, remind her to bring extra hair elastics, as well as any other necessary make-up, in her park bag.

OMG, that Viewmaster comment makes me feel old too
We're making inventions in science and I decided to show my class old infomercials. We watched the one for the Clapper. My students wanted to know why the television in the commerical looked funny

DTD sounds fun, but how did Chelsea turn into a monster?? Can't wait for the next update!

Those onion rings look so good. We just made ADRS this week nad up until last minute I had this place on my list and then changed it. I think I have been to a dozen TRs where kids of all ages have a meltdown there. I wonder what it is about that place?

Ahhhhhh..teenage drama! We had a bit of teenage angst on our trip. Heck...I've even got a picture of Hannah with "the look" and she's only 8!

We liked 50's PT when we went on our 1st trip but opted for someplace different this time. I like the themeing in there and get a kick out of watching the old shows.

Monster at DtD????!!!

We really enjoyed our dinner at 50's PTC in Sept. Our waitress was excellent and the food was SUPER yummy! The dining room sang happy birthday to Madison too and she just loved it. We didn't get a viewmaster though for dessert...bummer. However, Madison knows what a viewmaster is. She has one!

Jackie! I can't believe you didn't buy your poor deprived children a view master! There are all kinds of Disney disks to be had for those things! Tisk tisk!

I can so relate to the hair disaster. Bad hair=bad mood for Miss Anita Wigd!

I really wanted to eat at 50's in Feb but dh wanted to try Sci-Fi so we are going there instead. I really wanted to try the PB&J shake. I love PB&J!!! However I don't feel so bad now that you said the food was just okay.

Fred MacMurry's suit in One Man's Dream is from Bon Voyage. I used to love that movie when I was a kid but it has been so long that I don't really remember to much of the movie. I looked it up because I really wanted to see Mary Poppin"s dress.

What a fun lunch I was wondering if anyone was going to really get into trouble I have only eaten there once but had a riot... the food was good...I had the fried chicken and remember the mashed potatoes being out of this world
Oh how I loved my Viewmaster....I specifically remember having some disks of the Disney parks and can clearly see Space Mountain in the little screen
Ooooh a Chelsea monster? Do tell Epcot is usually the best location for meltdowns.....don't hear of them too often in DTD

Ha ha, that's very funny that Chelsea asked how to use the viewfinder! That totally would have made me wonder if I was getting old too. You know, considering that we seemed to have sticks and rocks as toys....

Love the teenage drama stories! Makes me laugh now, but I'm sure I was the same way at her age!

Sounds like it was an interesting meal...we've never eaten there before but I'm always tempted to try it.

Monster at DTD...can't wait to hear about that!!!

I can relate to Chelsea, poor girl I'm glad she found another hair tie! I bet she is always gonna carry a back-up to the back-up from now on!

Did the guys like their milkshakes? I've always wanted to try the PB&J one.
