[QUOTE=podsnel;40772972]Sorry- I guess I didn't leave alot of time between posts. No...no need for lots of water or milk- you mean because the food was spicy? Not at all- Tim HATES even the slightest bit of spice. Tyler can do some- and I am up for MEGA hotness anytime!! But this was just yummy, not spicy. Is that what you meant?


No, I was referring to the Soda Bread. I heard such rave reviews about the dessert, I had to go back inside and get some milk, I almost choked on the thing, because it was so dry.


Nice picture of you and the kids in the end.

When I walk around Epcot, I just take it all in, and forget to get my camera out. I love looking at all your pictures.

Did you buy resale for the BWV? or can you still buy points.

I have had an iphone for 3 years and there is no better phone. I actually liked the iphone3G better than the iphone4 although there is something about the 4 that is so much more durable. In fact, it's almost impossible to scratch up the face of the iphone4 so I don't even use the protective screen on there. And I love it not just for the apps (which are pretty cool anyway!) but as a phone. I drop way fewer calls with these phones than any other phone I've ever had.

Thank you! I have to make a beeline to Mexico when we go to Epcot in July so I can pick one of these up for Mike and make amends for the fact that I hustled him through Cozumel with an exasperated "Babe, we haven't seen them anywhere....maybe they just don't exist here? Come on! I want to get back on the ship!". Only to have him see one in the hands of a teenager at debarkation a few days later....

And if buying the skull doesn't work, the caramel place will be my next stop. Mike is a die-hard caramel fan. I told him there was a caramel store in Epcot now and I think his eyes rolled back a little!

If the skull doesn't get me forgiven, the caramel totally will!

Looks like you had a wonderful mini-visit! I am hoping my little one will grow a bit before October so I can get her on some of the height restricted rides. I still have never been on Test Track or seen Fantasmic at HS after our 5 times there but that's just an excuse to go back again!

I'm so glad that you got your iphone back and in working condition, I know that was a relief. The Boardwalk looks like so much fun! We have never been there before, but we plan on staying there after our three day Dream cruise in September

OMG, that caramel looks so great! I love the stuff, especially turtles. We will also have to hit thecantina, it looks so much better than when we went in Sept of 09. They had those huge churros, but too much for me. I have to have one of those beef tacos!

My DH would love making that ride because he is math crazy He still wouldn't ride it though!

I just love it on the BW, one of my faves. We usually ride the boat from HD to the BW.

Ironically the meds that I take for my RA can cause permanent blindness, so I have to see an eye doc every 6 months.

Just getting caught up on your last few updates, looks like you are having a good trip so far.

I love that Gold Rush sundae! I am a big fan of the Reese's PB cup sundae at Friendly's and this reminds me of that one. My other love is caramel so you can bet I will be getting myself to that Caramel Shop in Germany when I am down there in May!

Glad you liked Kouzzina, we are also trying that one for the first time when we go.

Loved the updates! I'm glad the Sum Of... ride was a success for Tyler this time! Sorry you lost your phone, yet happy you got it back!

Love the space hats on the boys, as well as the viking gear! It is so fun that they are still so playful together!

You got some beautiful F&G shots!! Wow! Kouzzina looks really good! I hadn't thought I would like it before, but you got some really yummy choices!

More porn..you, my friend are responsible for the degredation of societ- er, my butt. Or more accurately the EXPANSION of my butt. Geesh. Those doughnuts at Kouzzina? O wow. Do you think I could sweet talk the person at the take out pizza window to get me an order of those bad boys?


Glad your phone was OK! I pretty much knew it was but ..oh the suspense! The topiaries are so gorgeous, can't wait to see them in person.

Totally forgot about Captain EO- we have never seen it (LOL) I can hear Brendan spouting off the MJ jokes now!

Jane, I like those skulls a lot! they're better than the ones in Cozumel anyway!

I am going to print this comment out and show it to Mike so when he claims the skulls in Epcot are not "authentic", I'll have an unbiased opinion that they are, in fact, better!

Okay I can breath now that you got your phone back in working order
What kind of case do you have on it?

As I was reading your post I was trying to figure out what to eat. I saw the soup and guess what I eat

Sorry I am so far behind. In fact, I started reading your posts several days ago and never commented because somebody needed something and I got interrupted.

I am so happy you got your phone back! I got an iphone about three weeks ago and the second night I had it I had the worst nightmare that I had LOST it in FLORIDA on a Disney trip! I woke up in a complete panic.

Those dessert donuts look and sound so tasty! YUM!

What a great trip so far!

Anyhoo, random thoughts:

-You should have told me about Mark, we could have had him come out and talk to Savannah and convince her she would live to tell the tale of her ride to the concert on RNRC. I still can't believe I *FINALLY* talked her into riding it!

So glad she finally went on! Has she done everything now?

-SCORE! (TSMM FP) I couldn't believe how fast those still go- they were like totally gone by noon the day we were there- crazy.

Seriously- you have to be there EARLY even on an empty day-

-Epcot- the topiaries look awesome, even in the rain!

-All the single riders, all the single riders, now putcha hands up- oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh! Earworm. love it!

-SOAT- oh my gosh, your iphone! I know what you mean, I got my Verizon iphone and it is now an extra appendage on my right arm. I hope it was OK, but it sounds like it might not be! Do you pay the extra $15/month for the full coverage (with my luck you know I do...LOL!) I should make you ride with Sav then you would never worry about it again because she builds the lamest rides!

I don't pay the $15/ month- it's expensive enough to have that phone every month! But it is worth it- and the phone was fine. Tell Sav to step up her thrill ride!! It's not a big deal- especially if sshe can do RnRC now.

-Cantina, ooh they let you eat inside for the CS...didn't know! those tacos look soooo good too. CHURROS!!! (can you tell I'm hungry?)

-Schoolbread, love it but OMG...Karamel Kuche....that porn you posted- you can get arrested for having pictures like that on your computer you know! O>>>M>>>>G! When you are looking for me in May, don't bother to call me first you will know RIGHT where to find me. No question.

That Karamel Kuche is a beautiful store- the popcorn is supposed to be incredible, especially when it is first made. We're going to have to try some in May!

-Kingda Ka- you don't want to ride it anyway. It's haunted you know.
Haunted? By who?

Now let's see if I can remember everything I wanted to add.

Mexico CS: The inside seating seems to always be open during lunch time - we sat in there too and it was picture perfect weather outside - but very crowded - outside.

I could not get over that indoor area- it was beautiful. And the tacos were yum yum yum!

Japan CS: I always found it odd that they put tempura shrimp on a soup - so I am not the only one who seems to think so!

You know, I think I knew that that choice was not a good one- probably from YOU!! But I couldn't remember why...and then when we got the soggy shrimp...I remembered!!

Yikes about your phone and SO glad you got it back and it still worked .... hm, makes me think of a lady who left her laptop in a limo on the way to the port and got it back too!!

Wow, that sounds AWFUL!!! Who did THAT happen to???

Karamell Kueche: yip, been in there too and chatted to the CMs in German!
Did you have some of the popcorn? I usually am not a huge fan of sweet popcorn, but that one is devine - need to try more during our summer trip!

How wonderful, to be able to speak in German to them- they must have loved it! I didn't try the popcorn this time because I wanted somethng chocolate- but I will be definitely getting some in May!

Weren't the topiaries at Epcot just wonderful? Tom and I took about half a day to check them out (we went very shortly before they opened and most of them were already up! ) Your pics brought back so many fond memories! Thank you!

I'm glad, but I hope to have better pics of them in May- with my better camera-

Kouzzina: We love it there - and we have never had complaints. And about the whole fish - they do filet it for you if you want it! It is out of this world good! Tom had it - it was huge but yummyyyyyyyyyy!!!

I did know that from the report you did- I hesitate because I know bones can remain, and that is actiually what I have a problem with- for some reason fish bones are a BIG turnoff for me. But the way it is prepared is right up my alley- I love fish done that way, with those seasonings. YUMMMM!

Okay, congrats to the boys for winning a basketball! These are the things that are fun taking home on a plane - like the umbrellas I usually get!

Maybe next time they'll want a sombrero- that would be fun, too...

You did A LOT of walking that day, but when you posted the photos of the resorts and when you will be back you made me very happy - that means lots more TR!!!!!!
I'm so glad you are always willing to come back for my babbling.....

Yea, I was on a roll. I had some downtime in the house with Sean being off this week, and once I started, I apparently couldn't shut up!! Thanks for saying I'm a fun mom- what a wonderful compliment! I do love to hang out with them- they are so goofy, but they are good souls, and they get along so well-
