A fun day at AK and Epcot! I can't wait to ride EE again... love it and I think it's the best of all the WDW coasters!

I have to agree with PixieMama - sounds like a fun day!

Yay on getting a pearl!

Also, how did you find Boardwalk at night? We are thinking of visiting one evening but am not sure if we will be able to fit it into our plans.

It was!

Thank you! I love it!! It's a grey pearl- one of the most rare!! I had it set in a necklace, and I love it! (I guess I should've added that in my TR!) HAHAHA woops!!

The BW is beautiful at night! It's all lit up, and there are street vendors, and all the shops and restaurants are open, so it makes it feel very fun and lively! I would definitely suggest it even if it's just a quick stroll!

Day 6 coming right up!!
I wonder what that little boy behind you was fishing for in the fountain

I have never experienced the Brazilian tour groups (and hope to never experience them or the cheerleading groups). The only time I remember a large group being obnoxious was in the HM - a group of male high school students were in the buggies in front of me and being loud and a couple of the boys kept telling them to behave themselves (they looked thoroughly embarrassed when we exited the ride). When I passed these two boys, I told them their mommas would be proud of them - they laughed (well, probably AT me rather than in agreement since I raised 4 boys but you get the picture).

Love Epcot at night - so relaxing to wander around the countries!

HAHA too funny!! I didn't even realize what he was doing!!!!

OMG I really hope you don't have to!! They are so loud and obnoxious!! That's too funny about the high school guys my mom would have said the same thing!!

I do too! It's so beautiful and usually the crowds aren't too bad, and it's cooling down, and it's just perfect!!

Day 6:

The next morning started out the same as the first: lazy! However we DID have ADRs at Garden Grove for lunch!!! I had never been there, but mom had, and she said the food is delicious! Also, it was a character meal, so I was excited to see some characters! That night our meal was Mediterranean themed, and it was amazing! I was so full after that I could barely walk! The restaurant was nearly empty, so it was quiet, and we enjoyed the plentiful food on the buffet!!!


Our table started with bread and oil, and we each got salads.



Of course we all had to try a little of everything…and then go back for the good stuff!
My first plate…


Yummy tomato soup


Mom’s or Step Dad’s first plate… (I can’t remember)


My second plate… I was able to choose which pasta and sauce I wanted, it was really nice! I had fettuccine alfredo with chicken!


Pluto came to join in our fun!


After him, Goofy came to dance!



Finally….THE DESSERT BAR!!!!






(Can you tell I like dessert??)
My dessert plate


Everything was delicious and we were really happy with our food! We were in a silly mood again, and needed to walk off our huge lunch. On the way out, mom wanted to take a picture of me by the fountain, but when I went to pose, my flip flop touched my leg and it scared me, so I jumped, and mom captured it on camera. This made us laugh even harder till we cried!


Okay, this one’s better!


After our silly giggle fest we made our way to Epcot across the BW. In Epcot, we headed to Future World to ride some rides! On the way, we passed the U.K…





And Canada…



Continued...

Then we went on Figment’s Imagination Ride- This is one of those rides that you just forget about but you actually really enjoy! There was absolutely NO WAIT so we were able to walk right on!













Then it was off to Test Track!!











My height compared to average



I actually video taped the entire ride on my digital camera! I was pretty proud of myself, but it was rainy, so my camera got all wet! Haha but it’s still cool to watch and remember exactly what the ride is like! After the ride, we of course had to try out the cars in the show room!!










We looked around Mousegears for a while to get out of the rain, and at the counter we met a young CM from Haiti. Mom speaks French fluently, so she started talking to her, and asked her about the recent earthquake. She said she lost six family members during that disaster! How sad! It really makes me realize and appreciate how lucky we are! Not to add to the atmosphere of sadness, but it was absolutely DOWNPOURING outside! We ran across the Lagoon in the pouring rain, sliding and slipping in my flip flops and blinking the rain drops out of my eyes! It was so not fun, but we were sure glad when we reached the boat dock! It seemed to take FOREVER though!! Regardless, we made it back safely and snuggled into our beds for the night!

Stay tuned for our last day at the Dolphin!!

Hey there! Popped on over to join in on your fun! It seems like you have a really great, sweet relationship with your mother. I love it! I hope when my little Reid gets to be your age, he still loves Disney as much as you do! Can't wait for more!

Found your report today and just finished reading the whole thing.

You all had so much fun and I love that you all get the giggles and just have a great time.

My daughter graduated class of 2010 and we celebrated in January 2011 at WDW of course!

Looking forward to more updates.

Garden Grove looks great - I have not read many reviews of this place

Love that you got to dance with Goofy! Also wow on them desserts - they look gorgeous!

I had to laugh at the spontaneous shot your mum got - at least you will be able to laugh over it every time you see it!!
