Hey, I've met and spent time with Glenn at Disney. I thought he was a really nice guy, so that should tell you something about the kind of person I am!!! Oops, I hope that doesn't mean the DISMeet is off now.....

I thought Glenn had a really great family! Does that help any???

I can't believe the disk hasn't arrived yet. Friday was the earliest they said it might arrive, but I thought sure you would get it by at least yesterday! Can't believe it still isn't there. I guess it is taking as long as your card from DLP took to reach me.......

Ah, you say that now.........at least until you see some of the pictures I included of you on that disk!

The tea break was definitely a highlight! I think Katharina and I got a tea from there nearly every single time we were at AK!



Good to know that people enjoy my different approach to this TR! I think with 12 days and my love for writing rather detailed, I think I would have never been able to finish a TR in the usual style...

I remember that we talked about the change in touring style when you wrote about how it was when you first bought your AP. To a certain extent owning DVC changed my touring as well, it was definitely more relaxed than ever before, but I still would want it to be even more relaxed. I still kind of feel that I need to do every attraction... I just need to practice relaxed touring even more on my next trip!!

I think that post was # 5,000.

So go at least for the nerd factor. To be honest that's what got me there, being a "Disney nerd": One of the last original Epcot attractions, even if it is in an updated form...
Indiana Jones is one I hadn't seen in a while either but wanted to make sure the weather was cool.

EEA is great for a nap during F&W.

Very thorough and nice update on EPCOT! I love how you separated it all out and listed what you liked and didn't about each thing you listed! Great job, Ladies!

I am truly sad you didn't make it to La Cava, as that was one of my and LeeAnn's most memorable and wonderful times together on our last trip. Someday, it'd be great to get there and do that with you...

Well, I think the Captain thinks at least that Glenn has great fashion sense!!

It still hasn't arrived... I have noticed that the mail between Germany and the US tends to take an awful long time!! I sometimes wonder whether they don't put it on a boat instead of a plane. And I know that it used to be quicker. I had a few pen-friends in the US as teenager and the letters usually took about 5 days then. But with all my DIS-pals a week seems to have been the shortest amount of time.

I had been wondering whether it might have been hold up in customs... Did you fill out a customs declaration for it (it's a small green sticker)?

Yes, I can see that those outdoor theaters are much more enjoyable in cooler weather...

And since we went on EEA in the morning, we were not really in the mood of a nap yet...

I have the best intentions to start commenting again soon!! But I truly find it fascinating because it shows an area of the US which a normal European tourist most likely would never see.

Those pictures appear to be lost in the international mailing system... I am getting a whole new perspective about the term "snail mail"....

Liesa, I am glad that you are enjoying our TR format! It is great fun to write it that way. And it is also good that it is quicker to write because I did not take any notes and soon will forget what we did in which order. But I will still remember the highlights.

And I love to hang out at La Cava with you one day!! That's a wonderful idea. I really think it is the fault of the Food & Wine Festival which distracted us... I am quite sure that I don't want my next trip to be during that festival... More thoughts on that in the next update.

So you don't wear that type of light blue shirt? Perhaps the Captain can be convinced to coordinate with your style of clothing???

Hey Magdalene. This mail situation is crazy slow. By the time it arrives I guess I should have sent the disk in a Christmas card instead of a birthday card.

Yes I filled out the customs declaration. I still wondered if our wonderful homeland security would have to open it and look at the pictures on the disk and verify I wasn't sending sensitive information or bootleg computer code or something.

I agree, it is strange. But I know that Liesa's price took quite a long time to get to me as well. I think Katharina had it a few days earlier than me. So it seems like it really varies how long it takes. I just hope it did not get lost!

Maybe it will be in the mail tonight.
