Great update, Kelly, I love World Showcase...so much to see and do and the scenery is beautiful.

I've got to remember to put Voices of Liberty on my NOT TO MISS list as we missed it last year and Mark really enjoys this.

I love the Voices of Liberty. I started going in and skipping the American Adventure. I mean, I love the American Adventure, but I've done it so many times that I can recite it. I just can't give up seeing the Voices of Liberty at least once!

Day 3 - Part 3

When I left off, we were just leaving America.

Our next stop was Italy. I found these spoons:



And totally fell in love. I asked if they had a Disney Visa discount (they didn't) but she said they had an AP discount. Sweet! It was then I discovered that most every shop (except alcohol) you could get an AP discount at. Awesome

Our next stop was Germany, where I went crazy in the caramel shop (also an AP Discount!!)









This is my favorite snack:


They're so chewy, and surprisingly not sickeningly sweet. While I had my caramel treat, Geoff went to the back of the pavilion and got a wine flight.







The Apple Wine was actually pretty good, so we took a picture of the bottle in case we ever wanted to find it at our local store...


We did a little browsing through China, but I apparently kept my Phone/Camera in my pocket because I have no pictures.

Then it was off to Norway! And some trolls!



While we were waiting for Maelstrom, we decided that we really didn't want to go back and ride Soarin' or Test Track because grabbing a seat at La Cava del Tequila sounded like a much better idea. So I put out a notice on the Chat portion of "Lines" (the Touring Plans App) that we had the Fast Passes up for grabs and where we could be found in about a half hour if anyone was interested.

After Maelstrom we grabbed some School Bread for my Mom for breakfast the next morning (Geoff got one too) and headed over to Mexico!



We grabbed a table in the back corner, where we stayed for a good hour and a half. We had some chips and dip, each had a margarita, and Geoff had some tequila too. In this time, we saw two families come in. I won't go through my rant about that again here, if you're interested on the details of that, check out my DR (but really, who brings toddlers to a tequila bar?)

Mural:


Unfortunately, there were no takers on the FPs through the Lines App, so we wound up giving them away to a couple sitting behind us. I hope they used them. I told them they were still good since the times had expired, but most people don't understand that (Which is why I was hoping I could give them to Disney fans!)

We had one more stop to make on our way out...



You'd think he'd be done by now...



Interestingly enough, there was a rumor going around that Rome wasn't burning (aka not smelly.) It wasn't! I found it to be glorious since I always have to hold my breath and hope we don't stop through that section since the smell gives me a headache! I wonder if they "fixed" it?

On our way out:


Our unlucky spot


Up Next: A stroll to POR and pictures around FQ!

In other news...

When I logged into the Disney Site this morning I saw this!



BUT! When reading the Mousesavers Newsletter this morning, I found out that Casey's Corner will be closed during my stay. Which means NO CORN DOG NUGGETS!! I am sad.

I also haven't received my ME documents. I'm not checking bags, but I don't really want to wait to get on the bus to get ticketed for it. I'm giving them until tomorrow and then I'll contact my TA to see what's going on.

Also: these pictures hurt my eyes. I promise to take a regular camera on this trip.

That's cool that you had an app to give away FPs, even though it didn't work out this time.

What's the story with the unlucky spot? I must have forgetten something from an earlier chapter? (That doesn't take me too long.)

Ahh, it seems like every TR I'm reading has pictures from the caramel store! I am definitely going to get something (or maybe a couple of somethings...) from there when I go. Everything looks so good!

Yay for 25 days until your next trip!

Great update, Kelly.

How sweet of you to give the fastpasses away.

I remember the rant about the tequila bar -- and I still agree with you.

Mark cannot wait to try out the caramel shop next month.

I don't think I ever told it So almost without fail, we'll drive in and we're always one or two cars away from being at the close end of the row instead of alllllll the way down

I try to give away FPs, but it's hard when the time has "expired." I mean, I know they're still usable, but no one believes me!

So for September...I'm debating. On the last day, my parents are planning on joining me for breakfast at Kona, a park, then taking me to the airport. What if instead of Kona we did lunch around 1/130 at Sanaa and then headed to the airport from there?

Then I could have 2 room service breakfasts on my balcony...hmmm...

Obviously this will get run by my parents, but they're currently on a plane to the West Coast (no, not to D23!) so I have to wait.
