We had planned to do celebration BBQ on our trip but decided to bump it to Halloween as it was going to be our lunch the day it rained. Looks WONDERFUL! I want that cookie thing ...on my mission quest for halloween for sure!

Glad it is not really over and your 2nd trip with Mike won't require you to take a plane to get there since you already were LOL

I can't wait to become official like you!

After all the goodbyes, I headed back thru Fantasyland & the band was playing:




Then coming to the end of Main Street, the Firemen Band was out & playing:




I went back to the motel for a short rest. I came back to the park around 4pm. I stopped & got a couple pics of the Mickey floral at the entry.





I also decided to get a picture of the Family Fun Weekend sign for the Mardi Gras weekend!!



When I headed out to Main Street, the Flag Retreat had already started (I'd be seeing this later in the week, so didn't stick around for it).





I took a few window display pictures. I'm sure there has got to be a way of photographing these without having the glare & reflections....but haven't figured it out yet.






The flag bearers as they were marching towards the flag pole.



I headed over towards Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln to look at the displays. I took a ton of pics in here.....I had the place almost to myself!!

So those will be coming in the next 2 installments.

The food is really, REALLY good!!! The desserts are expensive for what they call the "individual" ones, but they are big enough to share. So the Cookie one is a family one & decently priced.....they also had a fruit cobbler one.

Yay....no flying....at least for me.....Mike was on his way, as I ventured to the park for a little more solo picture taking.

When I came out of the exhibit, I caught the Disneyland band heading to the fence to depart Main Street.






This was a cute display in the corner store across from the Emporium.



I decided to go thank the RN who had helped me during my panic attack on Saturday....but she wasn't on shift....so I left a note.



I decided to take a round trip ride on the train & tried to get some pictures....most came out blurry....but I did get a few.

From the Main Street Station:



The New Orleans Station:



They filled the engine with water, so I took a pic of the steam coming out the side:



The Haunted Mansion as we went by:



From the ToonTown Station:




Looking over Small World.....look at all those people!!!!




After passing thru the Tomorrowland station & entering the diaramas:





I headed back to the motel to wait for Mike's arrival!!

Let's finish up day four!! I got back to the motel & found that our door sign had blown off the door & was barely hanging on the walkway.....so I put it up in our window.



The weather today went from being quite warm during the BBQ, to windy & you could see it was going to get wet. I blame Mike for bringing the Oregon weather with him on the plane.....lol

Here was our room at the Carousel Inn.



Here's pics of the room itself. I usually try & get these before we "move" in....but since I had to get up to the Meet-n-Greet to set up......I kinda forgot. At least I did get them after the rooms had been made up.









While I was taking the pictures, I got a text from Mike saying he was in the Super Shuttle & on his way. I finished up & went down to wait in the lobby.....not that I was a little excited to see him or anything......

He got there around 7pm & we went up to the room. Michelle came back to the room with Jen. Michelle decided she was going to go home. She was driving a few of the gals to the airport & figured she'd just go home from there. Lisa & Trish came up & waited, as they also were heading to the airport with Jen. We said our goodbyes & Mike helped them get their luggage downstairs.

Mike & I decided to stay close due to the wet weather, so we walked down to the Millie's Restaurant in front of the Fairfield Inn. We had dinner there last summer & really enjoyed it.



I got the fish-n-chips:



Mike got the quesadilla burger:



It was great to get all caught up on the home life & a nice dinner. We headed back to the motel. I showed Mike the pics from the girls trip. The fireworks started, so we headed out to the sidewalk to watch them. Only problem with this is the trees on Harbor have gotten pretty tall & they blocked a good portion of them. We went back up & watched a little tv. I got a text from Jessica asking where Michelle was & I told her she had headed home. She was having fun with the gals in the Villa & was going to come by the motel room & pick up a couple items so she could spend the night over there.......lol I had told Mike that she probably would stay elsewhere when she found out that Mike & I were the only ones there that night.......

That concludes Day Four!

Laurie - I totally lost my groove in commenting on your TR and other threads today, due to a variety of things (among them being the fact that my PC keeps locking up on the DIS and I can't get from thread to thread), but I just wanted to say before I forget - those desserts at the BBQ place look amazing!

I really didn't have much interest in eating at the BBQ restaurant before. I like chicken, but I didn't think it would be worth it to me to spend that much money just to eat a couple of pieces of chicken, and nothing else really appealed to me that much. However, now that I've seen the dessert photos, I have more of an interest! When that place opened, it was cupcakes only, I think. Then they revised the menu a bit, but I had no clue they added in cobblers and strawberry shortcake and that giant cookie thing!!

I love strawberry shortcake! I love cobbler! I love giant cookie things! Now I feel like I want to eat there just for the desserts! Or maybe I could justify it more now if I eat chicken and dessert!!

Maybe if all the stars align correctly and we end up meeting you during our Halloween trip we could eat there together...My boys will happily polish off the ribs (not really my thing either) and we could share one of those cookie boat things LOL

Sounds like a plan! That's the sort of restaurant that definitely lends itself to groups eating together. I did Storytellers solo, but I know I'm not doing the BBQ solo, sitting there with a giant spread of food and enormous cookie creations!

Otherwise, if not in October then I have to drag someone to eat BBQ in December (but the shortcake won't be sold then, I bet).

I have trouble justifying any "All You Eat Meal".....I really just pick at my food. I think I had a chicken wing, a rib, couple bite of beans & coleslaw & half my cornbread muffin. But it ALL was very good.

Yes the desserts are very yummy!!!! I tried the cobbler (last summer it was strawberry rhubarb) & the cookie bake during our summer trip.

I tasted Brant's short ribs at BB which were wonderful actually and I will likely try these too as I do like to try new things food wise...My thing with ribs is not really about taste..I have this thing with sticky fingers so how "sticky" their BBQ sauce is will depend largely on whether I eat more than a taste or not.
