There were 3 obvious ones, and a couple more that were much trickier.

That's got to be the worst! I don't know if I could've stood it. Did he have a near-mutiny on his hands?

Bummer! Don't worry, I won't challenge the Rules Committee, it's not like I'm Marv! Besides, Jen is fabulous so I certainly don't mind losing to her in the least! Great job Jen!!

And Dude. The bus experience? And that's why I choose to drive most places at WDW - I'e had that kind of bus night and I never want to do it again, lol!

I know, I know, I know. I've had several myself. This is the second in this TR alone. I just really like the convenience of not dealing with a car for a whole week. I keep hoping they'll improve the bus service somehow.

Now look you've made me blush! You're too kind! These guess the number of Judy's is really hard! I never get in before someone has already guessed.

Since this has been a tougher one, and to prevent just guessing a certain number, please submit future guesses with the picture numbers from the post (ie. first picture of the post, second, etc.) you see her in.

A couple of hints.
  • She is not in the juggler picture.
  • She is in a picture that I don't think anyone has noticed/referenced yet.
  • And lastly....


ACK I am back to 5 Judy's b/c that is a napkin in her lap, not your DSiL clothes.






ETA- No I had the Food pic but I saw the white ( which I realize now was the napkin not clothes) and knew that Judy had on a patterned dress. Not being able to see other arms and jewlery I was unsure who's arm since you said both Judy and the DSiL had the same thing.

I was recanting the 5 for 4 when I then saw the top of the head in the picture with the juggler. I did not want to add that one in since Judy's hair is lighter and I don't think she was that short.

I read your update this morning and I really thought I responded, but I guess not. I'm just losing it. TGIF is all I can say!

Anyhoo....I have had both of those entrees at The Wave and the both were very good. I love the Wave on the dining plan. Why, you ask? Smoothies!!!!! Your appes look pretty good.

I really think you described the bus ride(s) from hell. 90 mins to get to the Boardwalk???? That is nuts! Was it worth it?????

Great update. Love Judy's outfit!

Awww, you're a sweetie Jen. And I LOVE your sarcastic nature! I come from a long line of sarcastic family members myself.

I get so excited when I guess correctly but I'm usually not quick enough either! All I can say is that I have never scrutnized pictures like this before in my life!

I suppose we should all be glad Marv's too busy with work to come over and raise objections!

You need to just park yourself on my thread and hit 'Refresh' every 30 seconds or so, like Molly does.

Just be careful, the last time it seemed there would be a "no Judy" update, she still appeared in a thought bubble.

Judy and her sister getting the same dish definitely made it more confusing regarding whose wrist that could be.

You were right to recant the juggler picture, but I don't think you saw her walking ahead of me in the one Boardwalk picture.

Smoothies huh? I didn't know to try them. Yeah, with the dining plan it might be a different story.

Um, not really. But now I can say I've been there. For what that's worth.

Thanks.

Oh, I should have put in the chapter that she bought that dress on the trip. She got it at Animal Kingdom at a shop near the entrance/exit. It's not a "Disney" design (ie. no Mickey's or Tinkerbelle's or anything), so maybe the shop near the entrance is affiliated with Rainforest Cafe?

And it's costing me a pretty penny too....to throw a whole contract their way just to keep him busy.

Ok, I change to 5 Judy's because I'm pretty sure that's Judy's hand in #8 after you gave us that clue. Am I close?

what a great date night you had with the 3rd wheel....jk!

Those buses can drive you insane sometime. We had the worst time on a bus trying to get to Boardwalk to visit also. I was too confused to even know what we did to try to add it to my TR though!

Your Wave dinner looks delicious! I love the atmosphere in there - Definitely wavy Now for your travel - Keeps confirming to me why we rent a car. I just do not have the patience to waste half my vacation waiting for buses and all that that entails.

An example at WDW for this is the new Wild Africa Trek. I thought it was pricey at 129 $ per person, but 189 $ is just ! I am sure that West Europeans don't have that much less money available. But I think many have more vacation days. So possibly Europeans tend to spread out their vacation money more???
I don't think Americans have more money than Europeans. I think we use alot of credit cards!, then pay them off for next year's trip. I think they have the luxury market, see who will book at the higher rates, then offer "deals" to travel agents, web visitors, etc. to book at lower rates when they need to. I don't think the price of that Wild Africa Trek is doable to MOST of us - especially like Glenn said for a family. Maybe if you are taking more vacations, you spread the money out. We are finding that we take a few more trips now for some reason, and have to budget accordingly.
