Yay on beating mum at TSMM!! I'm normally rubbish at these sort of games and always end up last. Will have to see if I can do any good when I finally get on TSMM

Poor Mrs Potts - though laughed out loud when I read what had happened! I imagine I would have been laughing hysterically if I had seen it in person.

Oh my gosh, it was so funny when she fell! It doesn't seem like anyone else was laughing though! It was really hard to keep it together! hahahahah!

I can just picture Mrs. Potts falling down and unable to get back up. I bet everyone else was laughing on the inside.

Thank you! Haha, I was pretty psyched about that! I'm usually awful at those games too!!

Oh, it was hilarious! I'm not really sure why more people weren't laughing as bad as we were!

After the show, we went to the TOT gift shop where I bought my younger brothers (on my Dad and step mom’s side) some gifts! And mom got my aunt some gifts too! We hadn’t gotten them anything yet because we didn’t want to have to lug it around and keep track of it for 2 weeks!




We rode RNR because our FPs were ready, and we headed over to the Writer’s Stop to get a book for sep dad. On the way, we came across the American Idol Experience. This is another we’ve never done before, but we decided to slip in and see what was happening since there was a couple minutes until it started. It was so much fun!!! There were three contestants, all guys. We sang along and cheered, and really got into it! We even made it on the jumbotron!











After the show, we went to the Writer’s Stop to get step dad a book. We were hungry by then, so we decided to go back to the Dolphin for lunch because we wanted to go to Epcot next. But when we passed by a stand selling root beer and coke floats, we couldn’t pass it up! Plus we were STARVING! I had coke and my mom had root beer. They were so good! We made it to the boat, and hopped aboard just like old times! We got to the Dolphin at about 2:00, and we hustled into the Fountain where we would have lunch. We had onion rings as an appetizer. I had a cheeseburger, and mom had a Rueben.








It took forever to get our food, but once we did, it was delicious as always! After our meal, said a final goodbye to the beautiful resort and made our way to the boat dock. We were there for about 15 minutes, but while we were waiting, a couple behind us spilled their drink! Luckily it was water, but unluckily we were standing on a slant toward the water, so their drink came right for us! It only hit my legs, so I wasn’t upset at all! We got to Epcot at 4:00ish and we started in Canada. Today we wanted to take lots of pics and do some shopping that we haven’t done all trip!

In Canada, we bought an antenna topper, bracelet, and a shirt. The French word of the day was “sirop d’érable” (maple syrup)!

I just love these guys!




Outside we kept taking pictures of the beautiful Canadian scenery.

Then we went to the U.K. where we looked around in the shops before playing around in the gardens. Mom was videotaping a lot today and she told me to “bend down like you’re lost in the maze”- cue hilarious laughter, and strange looks!

























You can see mom videoing the beautiful landscape.




Mom telling me to pretend I’m going into the door.






The maze that I got lost in:




We continued walking through shops and across the continent into France.


















Look, it’s Marie!!

Yay at watching American Idol and enjoying the show! I can't wait to see it.

Love the pics of the different countries - they all look so beautiful.

Lol at the maze story! We have a giant maze at one of the parks in Manchester that I always used to get lost in. I have now nailed it and can get through it at record speed!

I enjoyed all the wonderful pics in your update - especially the World Showcase ones! I could spend hours over there just looking around.

Yeah, we had never seen it, so we thought we'd give it a go! It was a lot of fun, and I think you'd enjoy it!

Thank you! It's such a beautiful area!

Mom and I get silly when we're alone together, and she was like "go crouch down and pretend you're lost in the maze!" Needless to say, it didn't work- there were lots of giggles though! I'm sure this one is like 10374687827th of the size of the one in Manchester! That's why it's so funny!!! But props to you for nailing the maze! I'd still be so lost!

Thank you! We love the WS! It's so pretty! I love it more now as I'm getting older, of course I always thought it was SO BORING when I was little, but now I'm starting to see the beauty and appreciate the countries more! We always spend so long in the WS taking pictures and shopping- It's great!

Thanks for all the great WS pictures My family doesn't like WS so I haven't had a chance to actually go into the countries and explore since I went with my parents like 15 years ago.

The food at the fountain looks very yummy.

You got some great pictures at the Beauty and the Beast show. I thought the show was great. I loved every minute of it. Poor Mrs. Potts.

I love to spend time hanging around in World Showcase. There's so many beautiful things to see.

It's interesting that you decided to go back to the Dolphin for lunch. I haven't seen many reviews of the Fountain on here, but it looks great.

The Fountain is really great - the reuben was to die for!!! And the ice cream is sooooooo good!!!! Also you get a AAA discount there, so that's always a plus!!! Definately a must do for us!

Thanks! I love taking pictures, and the WS is the best place to do it! There are so many things to see! Oh, that's too bad that your family doesn't like it! Maybe you should suggest hving an afternoon to do what you want! Hope you get to explore it sometime!

The food is delicious! We love the burgers, and the AAA discount like mom said makes a big difference!

Thank you! That show is awesome! I love watching it because not only does it bring back fond memories of watching it when I was little, but I also enjoy it! Poor Mrs. Potts is right!!!!

The WS is just an awesome place to be! The atmosphere is incredible! There's so many small details that Disney puts the time in to make it so real!

Yes, we kind of decided that on the fly! We both love the Fountain and the whole resort, so we figured we should visit one more time
