So after my mid-day break I headed back to Epcot.....I had an ADR for Le Cellier after all.

I hit up SSE first, since it was right there at the entrance lol.



After that.....I really don't know what I did, but I somehow ended up at Maelstrom. Things you only notice after the DIS:



This is the face of someone who has the doors to the movie at the end of Maelstrom close in your face as you arrive at them:



Since my feet were feeling better, and I had to wait for Dainan to get out of work, I just walked around the WS and played Kim Possible some more, lol.




Belle #2




My bestest friends!


Best character hug ever!!






Japan is the prettiest pavillion, IMO









While I was watching the last showing of the American Adventure, Dainan had texted me to let me know he was on his way to Epcot. So after AA, I headed over to Le Cellier!!! We were seated in the Yukon section I believe.






Following a fellow DISer's reccommendation (hi Lia!) I got the Red Maple, which was realllly good!


OMG!!!! Best soup ever!!!


The fillet was superb.


Dainan's strip steak(?) and fake poutine


Dainan marvelling at the fake poutine cheese. The cheese is real, but the poutine is fake, according to Dainan who has had the real thing.


Smores anyone?

After our wonderful dinner, Dainan drove me home again and I went straight to bed, I believe.

So for my last park day, I ended up going to MK again. Oh well. I did notice how much more crowded it was compared to MNSSHP day. And the crane was gone!



I believe I headed to one of my faves, the Jungle Cruise, and then ended up at the Tiki Room, which I slightly enjoy and see at least once every trip.



Dainan had told me he's be working BTMRR, so I went to bug him.....I mean, say hi.



Apparently, it was also BTMRR's anniversary that day too! After the mountains (Splash being the second one, of course), I headed over to my very favorite ride, HM!



While in the area, I went to go see where Tiana's meet and greet is since she's one of the princesses I still needed to meet. One session had just ended and it was a while till the next, so I continued to walk around a bit. I headed back to Fantasyland and hit up Philharmagic again (Favorite 3-D attraction ever!). Look, a crane!



I also tried out Pinnochio's Village Haus or whatever its called. Wasn't too bad, but not the best. I was craving something sweet so I headed to Main Street to hit up the bakery. They had the best bread pudding!



I continued to walk around. I hit up the HM a few more times (I love how it was pretty much a walk on most of the day).There was one time tho that the line got backed up. Apparently there was a person who was a little on the hefty side and the restraint wouldn't close properly. They tried a couple of times to get them on, to no avail. I was frustrated, but I felt sorry for them too. Oh well. While I was waiting:





After my last ride, I was craving a Dole Whip, so I went to get one. Which I scarfed down, since it was close to Tiana time. lol. I ended up being second in line! She was great, very fun to talk with.



Its not the backside of water.....but its still a great view



Ooh, I see a building forming!



Since I didn't snag an ADR for CRT, but still needed to meet Cinderella, I headed to the character tent in Toontown. I was amazed at how much faster the princess line moves in comparison to the Fairie line!


#3!


Cindy!!


#3! But in realty, its #2 in a different dress. First time that's happened to me!

I heard there was a Snow White wishing well, but I'd never seen it before.



By that time, Dainan was about to get off work. And the MK was getting crowded!! I was going to stay and watch the fireworks, but I was tired and I don't like crowds (I know its a giant dichotomy), so instead of hanging around MK, we waited for Dainan's friend Katie then went to Dainan's place for dinner. We hit up Space Mountain first.....cause its awesome!


Jazz hands.......IN SPAAAAAAAAAACE!!

So we headed out. Me and Katie walked over to the Contemporary since Dainan had to get his car from the cast member parking lot.


I think BLT is beautiful


One day I will be staying here!!

Apparently, the sky decided to be very ominous, with the clouds and great convergance of big birds everywhere:



And then we went to Dainan's and laughed and made merry all the evening. And Katie wore some pirate Mickey ears



And then Dainan took me back to my hotel, were we had great big hugs and goodbyes since I was leaving the next day.

So, instead of hitting up a park on my last day, I decided to get my stuff together, drop it off at the luggage service desk to hold and went to DTD. I left my camera behind accidentaly so there are no pics.

I got there around 10 or so. Maybe later, and mainly walked around to see what I could get with my remaining money. Which wasn't much. I went to Earl of Sandwich for lunch, which was crazy good. I don't remember what I got tho. I asked the woman if she could charge me for a drink but let me use my mug since I was carrying it already, to make things easier. She said yes, but then never chaged me for a drink. Oh well. Afterwards, I walked around some more. I then went to Ghiradelli, cause I was craving ice cream. I think I got some coffee ice cream thing? Or it was something with a candy bar in it. Either way it was good! There wasn't much to do with no money, so I headed back to Pop not long after.

Ooh, one note on the Pop staff. The day before, I had bought those Tink Mickey ears they have for my niece, and had them delivered to the front of the park. Well I had forgotton them. I know, bad uncle! Well, that morning I talked to the package pick up people to see if there was anything they could do to help. I told them no worried if not, I'd just go use my last day on my ticket to get them and ride one or 2 rides. The cast member told me to check back in a few. When I did, she told me they were going to bring them to the hotel for me! I was so happy. It made my day. Tho I now kinda wish I had gone back to MK, I could've gotten one last Dole Whip! lol

When I was getting ready to get on the ME to go back to the 'port, it started pouring, and I mean POURING down rain! It thought it was slightly ironic since it had only rained one other day of my trip. I lucked out I guess!

I had a pretty uneventful flight home. Car started when I got back to it, thank goodness! Then I went home!

That's a Cinderella wishing well ... notice the "C"



I think the Snow White wishing well is at Disneyland ... There's another Cinderella "fountain" directly behind the castle (the one where you bend down and she's wearing a crown)
