2 hour wait on TSM??? holy cow! The ride is fun...but TWO HOURS? You are the queen of perseverance now! I would never have made it.

Looks like dinner was good. I had thought about going there... I think it looks like a fun place.

The lights on the lake...thanks for posting that. We were on the train at night and I could see the lights and couldn't figure out what it was. Good to know,what it was I was seeing!

In my defense, I was under the impression that the stand-by line was something worth seeing. Turns out, it's not that great. But I guess nothing would be for that long of a wait. If I remember correctly, we were in line for just under 2 hours....

Eek! I can't believe you got in line! We waited for an hour and I wanted to DIE! I was holding the baby most of the time. I should have brought my baby sling more often, but didn't want the mom to think I new better and that I liked my sling more. Don't ask why I have a baby sling but no baby. I don't know either.

Oh, no! What was waiting back at the Poly?!

Great update! Glad you got to try the Tonga Toast and holy cow, a 2 hour wait for TSMM! At least you got to experience it though!

Looking forward to more... good luck with the pets!

Great Pic of the Country Bears I havent been in forever, and now im actually really looking forward to checking it out next month! I had forgotten much about it - until you posted that it was your 'Must Do'.

Also, im loving on that shot of you both from the teacups - its classic and I think everyone should have one, but you and Ben look so genuine and happy. Im thinking this is a pic that should be left at work for those bad days

Excited to hear about leg two of this day - sorry house-sitting is scary, there are times where I get creeped out even in my OWN house, let alone someone elses... youre a good friend for doing it. Sending happy thoughts your way in case you arent home yet!!

I love the plaid-ness of your shirt. Perfect match for HDDR! Glad you guys had fun there and the food was alright! Not liking the sound of another disappointment, though!

I still don't know what possessed me to wait in that line. But once we started, it felt like a challenge we had to finish!

The water parade was really cute! I liked the music that went with it.

Can't wait to hear about!
After the Kona breakfast, I got Tonga Toast at Captain Cooks and it doesn't come with the strawberry sauce. But since Ben is a good DH, he got me some of the strawberries they use on the waffles. Not quite the same, but really makes the toast better... I think the acidity of the berries helps. Or something.

Looking at that Poppins, you're right- she definitely is not sporting her day look!

That TSM line was not a highlight. But at least I wasn't carrying a baby...

Officially done with the pets! 12 cats sure do make for a lot of litter box scooping!

We loved HDDR soooooo much! The song still gets stuck in my head, though.

Have fun at the outlets- there's some good shopping there!

Slightly late - but I've subscribed!

Hello! I'm so glad I came across your TR.

Early on you mentioned your near death experience on the first leg plane ride for your honeymoon. So, since I was one of those that would have skipped over the link to your PTR, I had to quickly scroll back and "click"!

I am so glad I did. It was a great PTR filled with wedding preparations, Disney PTR, honeymoon ptr, and the actual wedding and honeymoon posts. I really enjoyed every page of it.

I am also enjoying this TR - especially how forward you are with actual personal feelings during the trip (disappointments and excitement with equal billing). Great job.

Congratulations, and hope to be reading more soon.

So now you know not to get your brood up to 12 cats. Althought BF is lazy and got the Litter Robot so he wouldn't have to consistantly be cleaning litter. Maybe you suggest that to your friends? Made cleaning the litter box very easy for my mom.

How neat you got to walk into MK with all of those characters! I didn't know they did that either. I guess I can use that as some inspiration to finally make it to rope drop one day!

I'm so glad Hoop de Doo lived up to your expectations.

Uh oh, I'm nervous about what is awaiting you at the Poly!

I'm really enjoying your TR. I especially enjoyed hearing your thoughts on IOA and the WWOHP, as I'll be headed down in two weeks. And Portofino Bay looks really gorgeous!

I'm curious - did you see the pilot of Outsourced? If so, did it seem like they had made any improvements to the version you saw at US?

I look forward to hearing about the rest of your trip!

It sounds like it is something else if it is worth a 2hour wait.

Hi Folks! I had hoped to have an update by now, but this is a busy weekend. Busy in a fun way- a good friend's wedding yesterday and today we are going to the Davis Mega Maze! It is a ginormous corn maze in a small town in Mass. Ben and I have been every year since we started dating. This year we're meeting up with friends to tackle the thing as a group. It usually takes us 4 hours or so to find everything, so I'm hoping we can shave some of that time off

Ben is giving me the stinkeye cause we need to get moving, but I just had to check in on the DIS for a moment...

Awww, thank you very much! After that wonderful endorsement of the PTR, even I want to read it!

I think the motor would burn out on an electric litter box with the number of times those cats go!

It was really fun, especially to watch other people- lots of folks didn't even notice that they were right next to Mary and Bert!

We loved Portofino so much!! I think I'd go back and stay there without even visiting the parks!

I did watch the 'Outsouced' pilot and I still didn't like it. They hadn't changed any of the things that I commented on (which really would have meant changing the fundamental plot of the show...) though I did find out that one of my best friends actually likes the show.

Yay!! So glad to see you over here! I hope you enjoy reading. Should have another update soon-ish.

It's the Toy Story Mania ride at the Studios, it is not worth a 2 hour wait! A very fun ride, but I was very silly for deciding to wait that long. Get there early and use a FastPass!
