Boy, you guys really take some awesome pictures. I love the ones of the castle, BTMRR and Space Mountain. Oh, and the one a couple of posts back with Darth Vader's cape billowing is pretty sweet, too.

Looks like a lot of fun was had by all! I'm glad you got a fun server at Whispering Canyon. Those guys make all the difference. Something tells me they wouldn't have been able to pull off that camera gag before the digital age.

I loved all the pictures. The only problem is they made me so homesick to visit Disney. It is going to be hard waiting until Jan 2013.

One of my favourite nights of our trip

Funny how we never got Declan's pic with Mickey. I wonder if that had something to do with the new pass system for meeting the Mouse?

Re our server at Whispering Canyon- He was hilarious! I always love the look of shock some people have when they are eating at WC. Don't they read the DIS?????

Wrap up coming soon...

Thank you. I like to play around with my camera. There are some amazing photographer in the Dis and they provide lots of inspiration.

You said Dole Whips and what???
'Fess up. What did you buy?
They were certainly having a good time. I think they need to play longer.

I think there were some hats and t-shirts, pins and some other miscellaneous diney merchandise purchased. It is fun to wander through all those Main Street shops.

Leaving the MK for the last time always chokes me up more than any other park!

There are more of his random pictures in the photobucket album. I didn't want to post too many pictures of strangers. I thought I was safe with picture of the back of the guys head.

Thanks, I love taking pictures of the Castle but the Darth Vader picture is one of my favourites.

It will come faster than you know. We haven't booked any returns to WDW ans probably won't be back until 2013. (Although I haven't checked my lottery tickets yet.) We do have a surprise for Declan up our sleeves though, just not Disney related.

Declan has watched most of the movies; he isn't a huge fan but he does like it.



Sitting in the Montreal airport as I write this post. I have a couple of hours so I thought I would catch up a bit. Hope to have another update tomorrow.

We didn't see the main mouse either this trip...there were a lot of things we missed this trip

Apparently not When we went in 2009 the server threw the napkins and straws on the table and the had a little freak out....really??? It wasn't like they couldn't see what was going on around them...made me laugh though cause he really made a fool of himself
Wrap up coming soon...

Update time:

First real life - less than a week until Declan gets his cast off. I know he is pretty happy about it. I know it is starting to get a little odiferous, so we will be happy.


-----------------------

So when we left off we had returned to POFQ for a quick recharge and we headed back out to EPCOT around 4 pm. We did the usual with me heading through bag check while Pooksma and Declan headed for the gate. Somehow I managed to beat them in so I took a couple of pictures while I waited.





After we were all in we decided that we wanted to try Sum of All Thrills. Declan and I tried it at Christmas and wanted to do it again. This time Pooksma wanted to give it a go as well. Declan and I headed over while Pooksma went to the Art of Disney to get a print she wanted for her class. We picked up KP mission while waiting.







Pooksma and Declan teamed up while I went solo. We both eneded designing the roller coaster and had a blast. I will say this ride is much better with a partner so that you watch them on the screen while you are actually in the simulator.

Next we headed to Norway to get our mission which was in China.









We saved the world again and got called in to take on another mission in Germany. On our way across Asia, through the outpost and into Europe we ran into our friends from the 'Peg. If you have been reading along with Queenofallthings report, you will know they spent the day touring around EPCOT and having a great time.

We completed our mission and spent a bit of time sampling some of the products of Germany before heading to Italy to do the same.













Continued in next post.

We continued to walk along while deciding where to eat dinner.



We decided on the Boulangerie Patisserie in France. This is a great little counter service hidden away in the back of the France pavilion. I would highly recommend it. For some reason I don't have any pictures. After eating we headed through the UK and stopped to take in some Off Kilter.









We then decided to head back into FutureWorld to finish up the day with some rides. Declan and I headed for Mars again on Mission Space and then we all headed to see Nemo and his friends.









After that headed headed out to pick up the poster and back to the resort around 9:30.





The next day will be our last day and we have a late flight so we will get to hit a park for the first time on our last day. We were fairly confident that Hurricane Irene wasn't going to stop us from getting out of Orlando but we were still a bit worried about Atlanta and further north.

Stay tuned for the last day.

Looked like a nice night in Epcot. We love the Patisserie in France too!! That is a must.
I'm sure Irene didn't get in the way. I know that b/c it got in our way on the 28th. We had to stay 2 more nights.

Enjoyed the walk around Epcot to start off my Friday. There are so many details in every country. A person could take hundreds of pictures, really, in any one of them. .

I know the smell of those casts. Getting it off is going to be nice for everyone. He will feel so free again!

Hope you guys have a great weekend! Don't forget to say Happy Birthday to Mickey today!

Love the pictures of EPCOT. I think we might give the Kim Possible Missions a try. DS is probably too young to get anything out of it, but I don't think DW and I are too old for it.

For those who like to partake in the Epcot beverages

During this wonderful evening, I chose to try the "wine walk". I would highly recommend it and will try to post details some time this weekend.

Germany, Italy and France are an even better draw now

It was a very nice night but then again, most nights at WDW are nice.

Just get him to watch a few episodes of KP before you go and you will all have a great time.

Great update! Love Declan's shirt...did he buy it in the UK at Epcot? I was looking at a Scottish one for my dad but the large didn't look large and the x-large looked way too big

Ah yes, the "wine and walk", Pooksma was having a great time with that! We were just grabbing whatever beverage was in the country we were passing

Can't wait to hear about your last day!

Yes he bought it in the UK. I looked at the Scottish jersey as well but I wasn't up to paying the $80 for it.

I was looking for the beer walk but they didn't have an official one so i made my own.
