Open that slushie Stand!!!

The three of us went outside into the GORGEOUS Florida weather...





Of course we didn't have a room yet, but we knew it was SOMEWHERE behind these two, because we had Boardwalk View-









So excited for Evie- her vacation was beginning!!!



We made a quick stop in that first store to buy lanyards for those without them. Look who else was shopping-



Next....we made a Beeline for France! Of course!! we need something to drink while we walk over to get our first Rita of the trip in the Ditch! Sadly, we had a few minutes to wait....not very patiently...



Ok by me- I was on the phone with DVC Member Services making an ADR at Rose & Crown for my November trip- because it dawned on me that today was my 180 day mark!! It was hard enough juggling my phone and my camera without adding in a slushie! But soon, those babies were ours-



Evie's first impression? Slushies are goooooooood! We strolled after these guys-



And walked a little more into France-



C'est magnifique!











We thought we'd step into the shop-





And then step into another one, where I started putting props on the models....



And made friends with a passing rodent-



That Evie decided to get to know a little better....



We saw this beauty, who i had never seen before- she was part of the Pixar weekend characters, I believe-



And kept walking to...WHOOPS! Gotta run! I'll be back with more soon!

Yeah, what a start!
Necklaces ( = lanyards) for all the girls - hope they do better with them than the boys on your last trip.

So funny you "opened" the slushie stand! Only DISmoms can do that!

Can't wait for more!

Why doesnt the slushie stand open at 11 with the rest of WS? . I bet Disney is leaving some good $ on the table not selling for that hour!

Not that we have a problem or anything but FYI the ditch doesn't open at 11 either. Hey, it's vacation!


Looks like there were some unique characters around for Pixar Weekend!

Subbing! Thanks for sharing your fun Looking forward to reading about your good times.

I really enjoyed reading your cupcake report. In loosing the lanyards, your kids sound like mine, and I can soooo relate. But you just gotta love 'em! They looked so happy. They look like they get along nicely.

That's what I think! Hmmm, I'm beginning to think someone has a problem.....last year I was circling the Moosehead cart waiting for it to open, this year the Grey Goose/slushy cart.

The difference is that last year you banged on the door and this year you ripped the door OFF! Dang hormones!

Slushy then rita - I am starting to see a trend here. Excellent pictures. So funny because last year you were texting me the same slushie picture and I was dying because I was still at work.

Let's get this party started!

I will say that the breakfast was the BEST one I have had in first class- very yummy!



HI! The stick kids were a big hit- bartenders remembered us the next year with them!

Not that bartenders don't remember us without them...
Now I want to book a United flight just to try the upgrade!

I'm sure you DISmoms gave the bartenders plenty of reasons to remember them!

Not to mention you traumatized the poor slushy-makers

Ahhhhh, slushies for the lushies, or um, I mean DISmoms.

Sorry, just couldn't help myself with that one. But those slushies are sooooo good. It is a great way to start off your day at EPCOT! Can't wait to see the rest of the day.

I miss them too!!!! Well, except for the ones I see/talk to every day. Kind of hard to miss them.

For the third year in a row, I laughed, laughed, and laughed...... We also cried, and we had a lot of "Me" time......

Let's just say, at least in my case, nerves (I'm a very nervous flyer!), alcohol, premenopausal stress, and maybe a little touch of something, caused us all to need a little private time here and there.......

And when I was texting Cammie during the trip, I told her we were "a bunch of hormonal, menopausal golden girls!"

Speak for yourself!!

Cammie quickly brought to my attention that we are "just a few years away from ECVs!"

I hope not!

Next TR may be titled "DISmoms on scooters.... Golden Girls mark 20th trip!"

I think we have a few more Ditch trips to write about before THAT TR gets written!!

My camera is all wonky and I have actually lost some pics. Really weird.

What is with the lost pics?

But let me do the honors here......

Princess Ellen.... our fearless leader and holder of the DVC points..... but that's not the ONLY reason we love her......

What are the other reasons??? Now that you've made me feel old and incontinent, I really need to hear the good stuff!



Princess Lonnie..... despite that fact that she is tall, thin and has a great rack (yes, I really went there!!!!), I love her anyway and feel like I've known her forever!!!! And she taught me about tea with mint to keep me regular.....

Yea- my girl Lonnie DOES have a great rack- and she is so wise in the ways of thunder tea....



And of course, the original McSparkleson.... It's ME!!!! And just for the record ladies, I hold some I'm Too Sexy photos for every one of you so be careful what you post this year!!!!!

HEY! Don't forget who holds the KTTW for the cruise!!!



Princess Joan..... there is no mascara that she can't beat... at least not this trip!!! Love you girlie!!!!

I LOVE Joan! She is the best crier- although I was right there with her at the Walt movie...hmmm...maybe I am hormonally challenged, too....



Princess Evie.... So glad to have met you this year!!!!! Again, I feel like I've known you forever, you are sooooo funny and you added so much to our group!

I feel that way, too!! But I guess I've known her for 15 years, so maybe that's why...We need to get her a screen name so she can comment!!



And Princess Laura.... I guess I really have known you forever, at least in DIS land! We first officially met 3 years ago (almost to the day!) and then again a few months before this trip!

LOVED meeting Laura!!



This was the first year for me flying in for our annual trip, having moved back to SC this time last year. I am NOT a good flyer, so thanx to my new friend, "Mr Blue Pill" I was able to get on a plane and make it safely to Orlando.

I stepped off the plane and Laura was waiting for me, luggage cart at the ready, just in case I over self medicated. Not to mention, those luggage carts would have helped a bit making our way back to BWV a couple nights!!!

My flight was smooth and I was sooooo happy to be so close to my happy place! After living in Jacksonville, FL, for 3 years, and going to WDW every 6-8 weeks, I was seriously jonesing for the World!!!!

Like Laura said, our wait for DME seemed to take forever, and then once on the bus, we sat there forever waiting to fill the bus so we could be on our way.

Before long we were pulling into Boardwalk, racing THRU the lobby and on to the International Gateway of Epcot.... after all, we had some DISmoms to meet!!!!!!

Glad to see you had your priorities straight!

I will be back with my sister and her family, and my parents, to celebrate my parent's 50th anniversary, so I knew I would be upgrading to an annual pass (sorry, Ellen, you don't get credit for this one! ) so I got that all squared away and then Laura and I were on a beeline for........

The Ditch....... there were three DISmoms waiting for us there, and they had quite a head start!!!!!!

Not THAT big...was it???


Love you and miss you, Kara Jean- hope you'll post again soon-
