Looks like you guys were having so much fun around the World Showplace (that is so weird...)! Great pictures, the Flower and Garden topiaries are so cute!

Love the pics with everyone and Pooh and Tigger! I never go back there to meet them, I always forget they are there!

That was an excellent spot. Really enjoyed it! I will be back, that's for sure.

I know. Several us really wanted one. But we ended up finding them later outside of England and Tracy got one. I guess I didn't want one too bad because by the time we saw them, I lost interest.

I bet it makes a great venue for a wedding reception. I bet its really expensive to have a reception there. Hugely expensive, but probably so awesome.

Well, if this is your first time here (sorry I am so forgetful) then I am so glad you are enjoying our TR and our photos. Definitely more stories to come!

I love that pix, too! It's really great and I totally missed those hats.

to the margarita comment. I do know that you are definitely the expert! I am just a novice.

I love Jen's hat and I do really love the ring. It's so unique!

to the engagement comment! That cracked me up!

I'm telling you, those dancers probably think the world showcase and place are the same thing. Glad you are enjoying the topiaries. You should consider a spring time trip after you do your fall trip! (and that, my friend, is called enabling)

Well, please remember when you are there in October so you and Brandon can get lots of cute shots!

Just google "La Cava del Tequila" and they actually have their own website, which is really unusual for Disney.

I didn't make it back there (for that) either. While not devastated, I do like Donald so mildly sad probably applies. That line was crazy though, no way did I want to wait in that.

I was disappointed in the merchandise, really thought I'd end up with some cute little garden decoration and there just really wasn't as much, or the variety, that I was expecting.

Cynthia said our PP pictures just came in, so we don't have them yet to share. Hopefully they are better than these.


They are! I'll try to get them up tonight since at least I have them to share LOL

On another note, I had no idea the Cave had its own website. Pretty cool!

BTW - I forgot to originally say this, but you in no way look like the Wicked Witch of the West.

Love the update!!! Jen where did you buy that hat? Cute cute!!! I need a hat that doesn't look ridiculous and I love that one.
Tigger and Pooh in England? How long has that been going on?!?!? lol I will stalk them when I go in a few weeks.
That blue drink looks so good, might need to get one of those too....

Disney should give all of you gals a finders fee for all the free advertisements they are getting from you. Think of all the things we will be getting from seeing them on this TR!!! lol

The first black and white cat picture is MY cat! Of course his name is OREO. How unique huh??

I love the pictures of you guys with Pooh and Tigger! So sweet! I love it when you time it just right like that! And those dancers were everywhere when I was there at the same time last year! There were little swarms of them all over the place! But I found most of them to be very friendly and polite. Not like some of the other tour groups you see....

I believe she bought it in the first kiosk we entered after leaving Mexico. It was definitely not in one of the regular stores. But if she reads this (she's in the world now), maybe she can see who makes it and you can google it.

Apparently for awhile, but since I'm not a character stalker I had no idea.

Definitely stop in the Cave. You will NOT regret it. The ritas are amazing. I don't think there is a bad one.

Why, yes, I think they should! Or at least a few FP!

that's why I posted those pix. Everybody knows a cat that looks like that. Oreo - perfect name. I was just reading someone else's TR and they posted a pix of their Oreo!

We did have perfect timing! I was so happy, because overall we did not take a ton of PP pictures and I think that was our only character interaction. And I know my DH won't go near the characters in December, so that may be it for awhile!

Yes - the dancers I saw were very well behaved. As they should be since its the same as being on a sports team and they were representing their team and organization. Plus I think they perform at a very high level, so that makes them more poised and responsible.

Thank you! Sure enough it was a case of number dyslexia. Now I can call all three. Seriously - I did not know there were phone booths in Morocco and Germany. I did see one in Canada. Thanks for the new numbers. Now I have 5 phony, phone calls right at my finger tips.

Well, so far I have a double chin, Cynthia looks the Wicked Witch of the West, and you are making a funny face. I guess we really all are not very good at having our pictures taken. And I haven't even heard from C, so I hope she's not boycotting our TR since I posted two pics of her in the phone booth.

I actually think you look really cute in your cute baby blue, salt on the b@@b, T-shirt!

Honestly, I don't have too many more pictures of all of us. Most of them at the group shots at meals.
