Fun to see all the Divas on IASW I love that ride, especially at X-MAS time when all the decorations are up.

So you went to the Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room. Now that makes me want to start singing that song

The group ride is fun......I'm thinking they were doing one on POTC and possibly Jungle Cruise....but I don't think it's as well attended as the Small World one.

Lunch with the Divas at the Big Thunder Ranch BBQ......this is a must for any bbq lovers. The chicken & ribs are finger licking delicious!! The beans, coleslaw & cornbread are the perfect sides. This meal is all you can eat.....so no excuses if you leave hungry!! The ladies were already seated when I got there, so I found a spot at one of the picnic tables and joined the fun.

I went around with my camera to take pics of all the lovely ladies in attendance.

Jill~Nicole~Cynthia



Vicki~Stacie~Becci~Daisy



Katie~Capri~Linda



Debra~Beth



Kandace~Jamay~Trudi



Dianna~Monica~Lisa



Carol~Wendy~Sharon



Cheryl~Lisa~Patrice



Jodi~Michelle~Melody (my table mates)



Me~Jill~Rochelle (also my table mates)



The BBQ Ribs on top of the bucket with chicken on the bottom......YUMMO!!!



The beans, coleslaw & cornbread.



While I was at lunch, Tyler text to say he was first in line when the Tangled Meet-n-Greet would open......he had been told 45 mins. I thought....good for him!! I went back to enjoying lunch & the wonderful company. As lunch was ending, I decided I wanted to run back to the motel before meeting up with my ride to Company D. So as I was walking thru Fantasyland....I see Ty still in line...so I joined him. The opening time had been pushed back for another 10-15 minutes, so I decided to wait with him & not run back to the motel.



The Tangled line is always 60-90 minute wait times.....so I hadn't ever seen Rapunzel.....so I was excited to be getting a picture done. I was also hoping that Flynn Ryder would be there.

We got to see Rapunzel but no Flynn Ryder.




Ty wanted a pic done with just her, so I grabbed my camera & got a picture of just the two of them.



I told Ty I needed to run, I was to meet Trudi at the Carousel Inn to get a ride to Company D for the Diva's shopping spree. While waiting, Amy joined me and we chatted until Trudi got her car & then Lisa & Patrice joined us. We met up with the rest of the gals at Company D. Company D is the castmember store. We were able to shop there thanx to Jill, who is a CM & one of our beautiful Divas!! THANX JILL FOR TREATING OUR GROUP TO THE COMPANY D STORE!!!! You can buy merchandise at 50% or more off......We got to do this last year as well & I came home with some great buys. So we were looking forward to going again this year. I got shirts, birthday presents, kitchen stuff, pins, etc. I came home with 2 HUGE bags full of stuff.

Here are a couple pics of the divas with their bags. (unfortunately 2 carloads of ladies had taken off before we got this picture done)




Trudi was nice to let me off in my motel's parking lot.....I didn't have to carry those heavy bags to far!! I got up to the room to find Tyler had just come in too. I showed off my loot & then we relaxed until we needed to head over for our WoC Dinner.

The BBQ is VERY tasty!! They have live entertainment during the meal too....it's corny but fits the venue.

Getting the opportunity to shop at the CM store is a real treat!! Jill is awesome!!

When I left Tyler in Fantasyland & headed off for a shopping spree, he headed towards the Rivers of America & caught the Mardi Gras parade featuring Tiana & Prince Naveen as it was passing by.










He went to the Court of Angels & got to do a meet-n-greet with Chip-n-Dale. He didn't get a picture with his camera but I'll be getting the photopass CD soon....and will share it then.

He headed up past Splash Mountain & headed to the Hungry Bear Restaurant.



He got a Cheeseburger with Onion Rings.



After lunch, he took a ride on Indy, did some window shopping on Main Street....headed to DTD & did some shopping at the World of Disney. He headed back to the motel & that's when I came back & met him at the room.

Ty & I had a 5pm dinner reservation at Ariel's Grotto, so we headed to Disney's California Adventure after 4pm. Since we were early, Tyler wanted to grab a FP for Tower of Terror.....so he ran to get that & I took pictures of the pier area while I waited.














Tyler got back & ToT was out of FP's.....so kinda a wasted trip. We checked in for our dinner, they hand me a pager, we sit down & the pager goes off......lol So down the stairs we go to be seated for our meal.



They start us with a basket of freshly made rolls that come with a tray of 3 dips: yogurt & pesto, butter with sea salt & light ranch.



They used to give you a choice of antipasti towers (seafood or grilled vegetables) but now they've combined it & just bring it out. The top plate has seafood salad, prosciutto, dried fruit, manchego cheese & marinated olives.



The middle plate has grilled squash, roasted asparagus & artichokes, marinated piquillo peppers & mozzarella cheese.



The bottom plate is a green salad with radish, cucumber, etc. It's tossed with a citrus-mango tarragon vinaigrette.



Tyler chose the Herb Crusted Chicken Breast. It came with seasonal vegies & cheddar herb mashed potatoes.



I chose the Cioppino that had lobster tail, scallops, fish, mussels, shrimp, chorizo in a fire roasted tomato broth.



We both were very happy with our meals. After our entree's.....our waitress brought out our dessert plate. It included chocolate molten cake, tiramisu cups, passion fruit & green apple mousse, macaroons, chocolate ganache triangle, white chocolate film strip & mixed berries.



Ty & I after our meal!! You receive your FastPass for the reserved dining area for the World of Color show when you pay your bill.

I am enjoying it so far!! I was there that monday (the 20th) and that friday (the 24th). It was presidents day so there was no school for me. The reason we went was because we were seeing some friends who had been on my previous Disney Cruise and will be on my upcoming cruise. We joined them again that friday after school.
