It looked like you had a really nice time at tea. That shot of Kendall that you have framed is really nice.

And I'm glad you made it to the pool!

Finally all caught up!

I have to admit...you have me thinking twice about that Illuminations Cruise. If money were no object, and time limitless, I would have done this by now. But in my head, I always felt I could have a better view standing around World Showcase, while at the same time soaking up all of the atmosphere I so love around WS at nite. And totally FREE to boot! Now you have me thinking and second guessing....hmmmmmm. You have made a rather convincing case to maybe give this a second look.

Kudos to you for thinking to ask the photopass photographer for a few pics! But tell me...how did you retrieve the photos afterwards?

Just so I am clear...you are thumbs down on the train to Rafiki's Planet Watch, right?

Sounds like a perfect afternoon splitting up for some boy time and girl time. The tea is such a fun girlie thing to do, isn't it?

Looking forward to hearing about your dinner at Teppan Edo. We are looking forward to dining here in October.

What an awesome last day you guys had, the tea looks amazing. I haven't heard that much about this and was happy to hear you guys gave it such a positive review.

Hopefully Teppan Edo did live up to the hype and I can't wait to hear all about it

All of the self-protraits from your tea were hilarious. It's funny how many times you have to try to get one that looks good. I love the picture of the table that is all set up & empty. It is beautiful!

My mom really wanted to do that tea on our last trip, but I had not read anything about it, so we let the idea go. After seeing your review, I know she would have loved it. We will have to remember for next time.

Cynthia, the GF Tea looks wonderful... I will certainly have to make plans to do it sometime! You three "proper ladies" look like you're having a practically perfect time!

Alex got that same brown ESPN shirt in March. He wears it all the time.
I do remember that! We thought about doing it on our girls trip, some of us had done it, some not, and it really would have been fun. We decided on a different big "extra" instead but it would be lovely with a girlfriend.

I love that shirt, Evan wears it quite a bit too.

Thanks! I love that picture of her and I'm glad I got to finally go on the slide, even if it was only once. Now I can at least say I did.

Well, once you split the cost with someone (in our case, Sandie) it's not nearly so painful. I really had the same feeling you did about it, she was far more sold on the idea than I was but I am SO glad we did it and it really was such a different perspective. Absolutely magical and something we will all remember long after the trip.

I had my card with me so he just scanned it like a regular PP guy would.

The tea was just wonderful and it sounds like the boys did very boy appropriate things. A good day was had by all.

Teppan will be fun with your large group in Oct, good choice.

It was really fun, I'd read a couple of reviews on it and knew Sandie would like it but wasn't sure if K would get into it or not. I may try to add this in if we do our huge family trip in dec of 2012 and take my mom, sisters and niece. That would be really cool!

The GF tea looks lovely! It seems like such a relaxing way to spend the afternoon.

Looking forward to your report on the dark side.

Well - you look pretty darn good for being drenched right before tea. It looks like a lovely way to spend the afternoon. The food looks delish. So glad you all had a good time while the boys were off eating and shopping. Now there's a switch - the boys shopping and spending.

Great pictures!

I agree with Mary Ellen - you look good for a "drowned rat!" I'm so glad you all made it where you needed to be and got to enjoy some nice time together. I really want to take my girls to tea, but they are a little young and I am not sure they'd appreciate it that much yet. Maybe in a couple years...
Great pictures - the rose Kendall shot is beautiful!!

I can't wait to hear how Teppan Edo went! We had so much fun there!

Great updates, Cynthia. It looks as if the girls had a great time at the Tea...and I love the photo with the rose.

Great t-shirt...and I agree, sports needs more characters...at least characters of that type.

Okay! I did it! I caught up! Two posts and some conversation! OH, and BTW, those Fizzes are originally named such b/c they are modified from Ramos Fizzes, which are gin based and have an egg white in them! My uncle changed the alcohol to vodka. AND you are right the total is for two blenderfuls.... so mix it all up, cut it in half with ice and blend, TWICE!!! Once you fill everyone's glasses, of course!!! Not pink lemonade, though! I wondered how that tasted!!!??? I bet good?

So the train that left you deserted! Oh man, I would have been worried! But you always seem to just roll with these things, but I guess in that situation what could you do!! You know we have never done that train, etc. Always other things we are doing want to do, etc. GLAD you got to do Kali, though, and you don't look worse for it at your Tea!! SO Much fun.. I would love to do that one time, but alas with my boys, not a chance!!! DH and I did Tea at the Ritz on our honeymoon in London. It was quite an affair! I would totally do that again, and with Mrs. Potts, why not!! Champagne was definitely a must!

Great photos of you all....

Can't wait to hear about Teppan Edo...one restaurant we have not been to... I can't get past Tokyo Dining!

I can't believe you are leaving Disney I am sure your trip felt longer than the posts!! Or maybe because I am reading them all together!! LOL! But, it sure seems like you got your R & R and family time in even still, and just had a nice time... The illuminations cruise does seem like a wonderful way to celebrate together.. CANNOT wait to hear your take on the next leg of your trip!!! That is our destination in 2012!!!!

Cynthia! I'm glad to see you finally got rescued from your stalled out train! Now, I would not have felt so smug, as I and my nephew nearly succumbed to heat stroke on our 2007 trip. It was the first truly hot day of the year, and we went from cart to cart and stand to stand all day trying to get something to drink. The computers kept shutting down due to the heat and the carts were closed. It was really difficult to get a drink. I finally had to throw a fit on the steps of one snack stand that was closing, and the manager let me in. Bad Form, Disney. The hottest park in the World, and no drinks to be had! sorry, this is just a sore spot for me

Your tea party was so special! It is wonderful to see the 3 of you having so much fun together! I'm glad you had such a perfect afternoon together - AND you got some pool time in too! Looking forward to your Teppan Edo dinner!

Cynthia, I am really loving your TR! I am still in awe about how you managed that large and diverse group... And wow, a trip with your side of the family! It sounds like it would be a very fun event!! I will be looking forward to that report, especially since I have met a few of the cast in person!
