Aww. I know what you mean. You guys are such a great couple and I'm so happy you had such a magical time and were able to focus so much on each other! It was a great TR and I'm so excited that you guys are going back so soon!

I have the spot where I last left off bookmarked, but I think I actually read and commented on those posts and I lost them, which is why I haven't posted in so long cuz I got upset about it! Haha, hope that run-on didn't hurt you so much cuz it hurt to write it! Anyway, I'm catching up from when you bought the Hidden Mickey book for John! What a cute surprise! I was hoping to do a surprise souvenir for Howard too, but we were ALWAYS together, and I was the one who had to use the bathroom more often! Haha. We saw the Mickey in the GMR too! I was looking in like, every window because I forgot the exact location, so I was thrilled to find it. Did you see the one in the Indiana Jones room? It's Mickey as a pharaoh and Donald there too; it's done to look like part of the hieroglyphics on the wall.

OH YEAH! I forgot about your love for Patrick Swayze! The part I love the most at the end of GMR is when they show the clip from Armageddon with Bruce Willis AND Ben Affleck! I don't particularly love either of them the way you love Patrick Swayze, but that movie was like, AWESOME in my book!

We didn't get a chance to see the Stormtroopers at the DHS entrance. We just couldn't get ourselves out of bed! I wish we had pushed it one day though just so Howard could experience it. Oh well!

HAHA, I laughed out loud regarding your James Earl Jones/Mufasa/Bible on tape comment!

How cute that you pretty much became one of the family at Sci-Fi! What food did the mom share with you?

Wow, I haven't heard a reference to Beans from Even Stevens in like, forever! I loved Even Stevens. I wanted to watch Beauty and the Beast on Broadway when Christy Carlson Romano was Belle, but I didn't. That's why I liked the Kim Possible missions so much. Haha. I mean, it's Christy Carlson Romano!

Haha, it's definitely love for you to buy a Vinylmation for John especially knowing that he's a collector! If he really gets into it, you guys are gonna have to make sure you hit the outlets because they're cheaper there. In fact, in April of this year, my mom went to the outlets (Howard and I were at the parks), and she was able to pick up Tron Vinylmation for him for 3 for $10 (as well as ones from the collection of sea creatures). All tradeable!

I have to say that as terrifying as the bug experience sounded, I kind of wish you had taken a picture of it!

We had that lady when we were trading Vinylmation at the pin store too! We have video of it from our Feb 2011 trip.

Yum, we did Boma for dinner during our Disneymoon, and we thoroughly enjoyed it! I wanted to try breakfast too, but neither of us eat a lot during breakfast and couldn't justify the cost. I wish they could somehow sell the food by the weight (haha, we had places like that at the mall in the past; fill up a box or plate from a buffet and pay for it that way!). That'd be the best thing for me!

BLECH, that story about the people at Boma really makes me angry! Was the daughter embarrassed? I would understand more so if they comped his meal, but why would they do both (unless he was saying that they both needed coffee). If it bothered you so much, why wouldn't you speak to someone at the podium or ANYONE else earlier? Ugh, can't stand it when people try to "cheat" the system. In a situation like that, it'd be nice if an apology could suffice for some people!

Haha, the pinball machine scenario for Tron does make sense! I actually liked the new Tron a lot. I was very surprised! Howard, who loves Tron too on top of Star Wars, made me watch the original, and I was bored to tears, not to mention utterly confused! We kept pausing so I could ask questions. The new one was much better. I don't know that it's necessarily a movie for everyone, but I was able to enjoy it because I know Howard does. That's where we got the name Quorra though!

The Circle of Life is really odd but informative too. It's funny that it's about a resort when WDW is a resort! I know Disney takes care of the environment though and protects a certain amount of the land or whatever, but it's slightly ironic, I think. I'm not complaining though! I trust that Disney is doing the right thing so that I can enjoy all these crazy expansions of WDW!

I miss being able to just enjoy pool time on vacation. The May weather was so hot that it would've been a perfect time for that. Too bad everyone else thought so too!

Love Casey at the Bat! I don't teach it thoroughly, but when we do vocabulary from it, I read the poem to my kiddies just cuz I love the twist ending. I have to say that the other thing I didn't like about Casey's Corner along with the lack of seating was the EXTREMELY slow lines. I didn't think it could possibly take that long with only 3 other people in front of us! I mean, it's just a hot dog! Haha. That pushed me to the limit because it was late at night. The corn dog nuggets were delish though as was being able to dip it in cheese sauce!

Did they just leave all the coins out there when they fell out of John's pocket from Sum of All Thrills? I wonder how much change they get at the bottom of those robot arms!

YUM, sushi. Howard and I will have sushi soon since tomorrow is our first month of being married! We know we can't eat out often anymore (it used to be on Saturdays), and we don't even really need to since it's fun just eating at home because we're together, but gosh darn it, I want some sushi!

HAHA, I was reading the update about cleaning up the barf with such trepidation because I thought someone had thrown up! So glad it was just the movie clip! But the poop in the pool thing is like, almost as gross (if you were already in it like that woman was!).

How cute that John got to know some Vinylmation buddies! But it's even cuter how he bought you that necklace! Such a sweet hubby!

Wow, you had a lot of different things at Boma! The fish wasn't there when I ate there and neither was the ribs. Oh man, it's making me want to go again to try new things!

I hate the story about that stupid guy, but thank God for John and his sense of humor. I giggled with the "Classy, Joni" thing when you walked out of your flip flop! I don't think you did anything wrong either. It'd be one thing if you had like, a whole family reunion with you (as in like, 20 people or more!) joining you in line, but it was 1 person! I actually don't even think it's that big of a deal if there's 1 person in line and a family joins. I always think about whether or not the mom had to take the kids to the bathroom or something. What DOES bother me is when the tour groups do it though because they don't even think about how this could affect the people behind them when they add friend after friend after friend. That drives me nutso, but families are fine so of COURSE couples would be fine too! Some people need to chill out. Even if the guy THOUGHT it, he didn't have to SAY it. I feel bad for the wife! She was probably so embarrassed.

Aww, McD's sounds kinda sad, but a McD's in DTD is definitely better than a McD's back home!

OMG, how CUTE IS HE to buy you that TOTE!!! Haha, that's the great surprise even for me just being the TR reader and not even the owner of the bag! Such a thrill!

I'm so glad I caught up on this trip report when you have the other one up and running!

I wish I could go there! We have a day that we're thinking about doing it, but we wouldn't be there until mid-afternoon at the earliest, so I don't know if it's worth it due to long lines

Anyway, it looks like you guys had a really good time!
JK Rowling made it part of the contract that only healthy items would be served for beverages in the WWOHP, which was probably the deal breaker for Disney to get the contract.

She JK Rowling is very involved with kids health and supporting healthy eating. Granted the candy shop is FULL of "bad" items. But no matter what, Juice is healthier than soda. Especially for breakfast. At that point you can grab a coffee of espresso. Same amount of caffeine and a lot better for you than the aspartame in a diet coke and sugar in a regular.


Great trip report! Can't wait to go back next year!!!
