Great update.

I love the description of Bill just jetting away from you to try to catch up with them! I can just see it now.

Just so you don't get into another lost drink situation, maybe you should carry an empty Sunny D bottle with you.......

When we got our photopass it included some "extra pictures", I guess this is new since we didn't have "extras" from the last trip. One was their version of the Castle, much clearer than mine:

I also get the happy tears when I see the castle, especially during Christmas when it's lit up like that. I love the picture of Cinderella in the window.

Yes! I've met a few people on the internet and have kept close ties with them.

You and Cynthia have me itchin' for a Tutto ADR now! Everything looks, and sounds, DELISH!

I'm with ya on the parents that let their kids break the rules...so, so frustrating, especially if the children are old enough to understand that their parents are letting them break a rule.

Don't tell me you didn't buy anything at the caramel shop?? That intoxicating aroma... seeing your pictures brought it back in a flash!

Laughing at the Nutcracker fist-pumping Bill!!

And trust me, when you say it was cold, I believe you!

Eat, drink and be rolled out of WDW - Happy!

I love the story tellers. It is really a special treat that is added during th holidays!

Hubs got his drink confiscated too. We were heading to the Boardwalk area, on foot, so it was a major bummer!
Figuring out ADR's is always so hard for us. We are doing Tutto again on our next trip. I wish we could have seen more of the story tellers it was just too cold for Bill.

Love the storyteller pics - something I have not had the pleasure of seeing yet.

I learned my lesson.... chug my drink before I hit the exit .

Too funny about Bill taking off without you

MDF - You got called out, what're you gonna do about it
The crowds were not bad when we were there, but I know you have to work your trips around school. Bill just left me , but I knew the gate would stop him .

You are right about people having to experience a day in someone else's wheels. I need an ECV when I go down to DIsney. I am facing double knee replacement surgery one day and have arthritis in my back. I get looks every time I go down. I can't wait to hear about the bus problem. I have one every time I leave EPCOT for some reason.
Oh thank goodness we didn't have rain on top of the cold, we never would have left the room. I don't get why they have problems at Epcot at closing. It is not nearly as bad at any other park, it is highly annoying.

So sad you had to toss your drink but I guess the alternative could have been a brain freeze from trying to drink it too quickly, which would not have been fun in the cold.

I Tutto! glad you both loved it as well.

My favorite though? Bill fist bumping the Nutcracker!
It was funny watching Bill chase after them honking his horn. I was sad about the drink but just wanted on a bus at that point. We still talk about Tutto and will be going back. The fist bumping was the Nutcrackers idea, I thought it was so cute.

Wasn't Captain EO fun? I really enjoyed it - cheesiness and all. I even downloaded to song to my ipod and like to embarrass Sam by dancing along.

Never been to Tutto Italia. After your rave review, I've got to try it. So many places to try and not enough time. It's so hard when you want to try the new places and still visit your old favorites.

Love the pictures of the storytellers. I've yet to see them but really want to.

So, you went into the caramel store and didn't buy anything?? You are good!

Can't wait for more!
We liked Captain EO, it was cheesy fun!! I love that you downloaded the song, it is so fun to embarrass our kids. I know what you mean about visiting the old favorites, it is really hard to get Bill to let go of some restaurants to try others. We bought something at the caramel store on another night.

Sorry to give you bad news, but the storytellers are only at Christmas time. They are so fun to watch.

You are so right I need to borrow Nebo's idea. Sunny D bottles will be in Bill's back pack from now on .

You aren't the first one to suggest he start a school for husbands, . He is very kind and loving and expresses it to me every day. I am very lucky.

Those parents were driving me crazy, I swear that is one of the reasons why kids are out of control these days. Everyone fills entitled and don't think the rules apply to them.

A couple days later we did buy something at the caramel shop. It did smell very yummy in there.

Oh I know you understand the cold factor. I just shouldn't be that cold in WDW!!

Meeting a Pirate and a Princess

Before I get to our DHS day, I have to tell you about two very special children we met along with their fantastic parents. Tinker Tam is an amazing DISer that was taking her first trip with her family to WDW. At a point in her planning she thought they would be able to get to go to MVMCP, circumstances changed and she didn’t think they would be able to. It broke my heart reading that, we love MVMCP - the fireworks are stunning, the parade so much fun, and the atmosphere amazing. I told Bill about the situation and we both had the feeling that we should do something. Well “fate stepped in” as Jiminy Cricket would say and we ended up with 2 extra adult MVMCP tickets. I contacted her and asked if she would like to have them. So on the night of Dec. 1st we were texting back and forth and decided it would be a good time to meet up with them.

We met up in the Pop food court. It was so great finally getting to meet Tammy and Jon in person. She is such a sweet soul and he was so nice. I talked her ear off and since my mouth was moving my brain wasn’t working so I didn’t take one picture, NOT ONE!! I showed Gavin how to honk Bill’s wheelchair horn and he went to town honking it. He is so adorable and Brenda was so beautiful with her Bibbity Bobbity Boutique updo.

I got permission from Tammy to post a picture of her two sweeties, meet Gavin:



and Brenda:



The only difference when we met them was they had changed into regular clothes.

Using your imagination you couldn’t even get close to how stinkin cute Gavin was with his Pirate makeup still on. Brenda still looked like a princess even though the dress was gone. They were precious. We talked for a bit but I knew we needed to go, so we were getting ready to say our goodbyes when Gavin went off with his Daddy to look at the food court offerings. Gavin came running back, eyes huge and yelled “THEY HAVE CARROT CAKE!!!” and he skipped off back to Jon. Bill and I just cracked up. It was so delightful to hear the joy in his voice. I have to tell you every time we see Carrot Cake, we look at each other and scream “THEY HAVE CARROT CAKE” and just giggle.

We were so blessed to have met Tammy and her family and hope to do so again at some point in the future.

Next installment…. DHS and falling in love

All caught up! Thanks for waiting. Tracey, Looks like you're having a great time. I love to hear the way you are doing so much laughing together - just the joy of being on vacation together! You may have to keep your eye on Bill - I think I see he is a flirt!

It's great you got to help Toni celebrate her birthday, even if it turned out a little different than you planned.

Tutto looks fab on every TR I see. It will definitely be on my list next time!

Tammy's little ones are so beautiful! How wonderful that you could help make it possible for them to come to the party! Some things are just meant top be!

How wonderful that you could spread a little pixie dust. Those kids are adorable.

I love the MVMCP. It's just a fun time there. I can't wait to plan a Dec. trip again. Not for a few years though.

I'm with Gavin, I get excited at carrot cake too.
