I am loving this dual trip report. Both of you take amazing pictures. I have a Mickey head cake pan at home and make my own Mickey Rice Crispy treats 'cause there's no way I could make myself spend $50 on them at Disney.

Thanks for the good Earl of Sandwich reviews. It's on our list of "must dos" for our next trip.

Enjoyed all the shopping pics -- it is always fun to virtually shop on the DIS!
My original balloon picture was so bad..... I mean really bad - I had no choice but to change it up. I didn't even know photobucket had all those effects.

I almost got the Pumpkin Mickey or the Candy cane, but I decided to go for something more generic. Honestly, I had no idea that soap was so expensive. I still have it in the wrapper, but conveniently through out the price tag. I can just hear Denny now.

It is fun to virtual shop.

Everytime I see those pictures I want a repeat of that Rita. I actually think that was my favorite drink of the trip. C was right - that place makes a great drink and I WILL be back there in May.

I was thinking the same thing. I would definitely try those bombs if I was staying with a jacuzzi tub. But I never take baths at home. Just don't do it so they would be a waste.

The sunset was super cool that night and I can definitely see how vinylmations could become an addiction.

When I go into TrenD I wish I was 20 years younger, 10 lbs lighter, and I wish I had a pocket full of cash. Then I would buy up everything in there.

Again - if I had a pocket full of money I would have bought all the soap in there - at least every one with Mickey ears.

Those D&B purses are REALLY cute. I am so not a pocket book, bag, purse, ect person but I love those. Super adorable.

Lovely boat ride to DTD. We really enjoyed his relaxing ride with so many things to see along the way.
I remembered that you stayed there. I wish I has taken tons more pictures, but that was all there was time for. I don't remember seeing a greeter in the morning when we left either. bummer. Anyway, great resort. Loved it.

And I agree that the boat ride is awesome. I really enjoyed it!

And shopping pictures! So many wonderful things to wish for. I went in Basin for the first time in Feb too. I will most definitely be going there more often now.
The drinks were awesome, the food was great, and the shopping was fun. And my personal feeling is if you can't buy everything you want, just take a picture of it.

Glad you are enjoying our tag team TR.

I hear ya on the Mickey RC treats. $50 - NO WAY....that' 5 ritas, or slushies, or rum runners, or martinis. I pick those over the rice crispy treat anyday.

Definitely try EOS. You won't be disappointed.

Great pictures! The food and drink look yummy! I love Basin too! We have gotten the bath bombs and smash them up so the kids can use some too. I have that yellow mickey soap and a white Christmas one too. I bought them LAST DECEMBER and just can't bear to use them - they're too cute! Plus I don't use bar soap for hand washing either, so it would have to go in the shower. I guess it could be just for me!!

I feel the same way about TrenD Mary Ellen! I was "this close" to buying a D&B bag in July, but I just couldn't justify the money. That would = a lot of margaritas!!!

I'm gonna take a guess at the MEK Mug game and say you bought it at MK. I know they have a shop there with a wall full of mugs!

Looks like a very nice evening of shopping! I love all the "window shopping" I can do through the reports. It sure helps that I don't notice a lot of what I want when I'm there though, otherwise I'd have to hugely increase my souvie budget!!!

Jen, love the idea with the giant Mickey head! If you ever do that you gotta post pics here on the DIS, it would be fun to watch it shrink!

Sounds like a fabulous evening in DTD! Those drinks really do look yummy! I may have to seek one out at DTD in a few weeks!

All your DTD pics are great! I love vinylmation! I swear, they keep coming up with more things to be addicted too! UGH! Isn't it bad enough that we're already to addicted to going to WDW?! Then we have to be addicted to pins, vinylmation and god only knows what else!

Hi, MaryEllen. We are back and I see I have a LOT of catching up to do. I wanted to get my TR started (which I did last night), and will spend tonight catching up on everyone else's.

Okay, I'm all caught up. First off, MaryEllen your pictures continue to amaze me. And, Jen, your pictures are awesome as well.

MaryEllen, when we were at Disney last year (2009) we stopped off at the the POFQ on our way to the airport. There were greeters there with beads, however, they did not offer any to Mark and I (guess they knew we were CSR lovers). Jen, as for the mugs, I think it is nuts how people get crazy over it. While eating at the Pepper Market at the CSR last week, the server we had told us that when he was trained, they were told that guests WERE ALLOWED to bring their mugs back.

Can't wait for the next update.

I'm so glad you enjoyed the margarita stand. Truly one of my favorite places in the World. But, by golly, I've never thought about getting an Earl sandwich and bringing it over. Good idea. And those pics have me ready for lunch!!

Love the shopping pictures!

This reminds me of my first job in New York City. Our entire section of the company was moving from the 8th floor to the 13th. It was a LOT of work. The director of the team came by my desk and shoved a bottle of beer between my monitor and keyboard. "Drink!" she demanded.

Being small-town Minnesota girl, I swiveled around in my chair and gave her this look,

"You'll need it! Everyone needs to drink!" she called as she continued to pass out beer to all the employees.

On Fridays, every-single-Friday, an admin would make magaritas at his desk (yes, he had a blender and a liquor cabinet at his desk!) for everyone.

Drinking was ENCOURAGED at that job.
