Well since it is silk it is lightweight, but the stays & bum roll make it hot!

Our DIL & the GDs were flying into MCO from Tulsa. Their flight didn't get in until around noon. We were to meet up at Teppan Edo for our 5:00 ADR.

We landed at MCO at 9:30AM. Off we went to find our way to the ME waiting area. After a short wait our ME bus arrived to transport us to the Caribbean Beach Resort, our home for the coming week. There was around 10 passengers on our ME. That was a good sign as to how the crowds would be!

I had checked in online & was pleasently suprised to learn that our room was ready! There was a little glitch however. They had put my party in adjoining rooms, uhoh, I specifically told the reservationist not to do that. I wanted to be close, not that close. No problem, we were put across the patio from DIL & GDs. We were in Barbados 1628, first floor!

We had a time crunch as we had to be in DTD at 11:30. We were in a rush, so we wanted to drop things in the room & leave. Our KTTW didn't work, back to the check in to get it fixed. We got a new key, which didn't work either!

Contiued from above!

An engineer from Mousekeeping was sent to the room & decided that we needed a lock repair. We were sent on our way with assurances that th elock would work on our return.

So the two of us headed to DTD for a very special lunch! There was to be our very first Dismeet

This was the begining of our many firsts on this trip!

Our First Dismeet

Before we were to have our Dismeet, I was a bit worried how Bob was going to feel about meeting total strangers, especially peole that I met on he internet! So didn't tell him about the meet until we were riding the ME to CBR. Bob didn't say too much about it, so I was hoping for the best!

We arrived at the reataurant a little early, so we ordered & got a table outside on the covered patio. I kept watching for our fellow Dis. They arrived a few minute's later. Her they are ------

Tom & Karin

you may have guessed, we were dining at WPE! Another first for us!

Continued Dismeet

[/FONT] Our Dismeet went very well, but how could it do otherwise when it is Karin & Tom!

As you can see by the photo, Bob was happy. He realy enjoyed meeting Tom & Karin. He's not the most social person with someone that he has just met, but he was very congenial. My resistor was actually enjoying our first Dismeet.

Anyone who loves Disney and sharing their trips as much as Karin and Tom must be fun to meet with and share a meal. We also like WPE very much. I ate there solo during our last trip while Sarah (our daughter) and Rob (my spouse) were at the water parks and then I dragged them back the next night for a family dinner. It was not hard to drag them back once they tasted my leftovers.

I wonder if that was the room we were to tour. I forget which section we went to, but we had a key to a first floor room and it didn't work. Our leader got a mousekeeper and he said the battery was dead and they had to fix it or put a new thing on or something like that. They weren't supposed to be booking that room. But they accidently gave us that room to tour. The curtain were open, so al lwe got to do was take a peak inside that way.

Boy! That Tom and Karin really get around. I wonder if they ever had time to actually go to the parks, with all their Dis meets and WPE.
Aren't they great people!

WPE Continued

After we sat down & after we spotted Tom & Karin a waitress came up to us. She told us that we were going to be eating with her favorite people! That was so sweet of her, she really liked Tom & Karin!

Bob ordered the Roast Chicken with Rosemary & Garlic mashed potatoes. I had the Harvest Pizza. The Pizza was vegetarian with broclitini, squash & mozzerella cheese. Bob had an adult beverage, Bud Lite, & I had Sprite. Our desserts were Chocolate for Bob & Creme Brulee cheesecake for me.




The pizza was terrific, as you can see, I started eating before I remembered to take photos. I usually don't eat very much, but I ate 3/4ths of the pizza & Bob ate all of his meal!

WPE was out of Creme Brulee so I tried the Creme Brulee cheesecake. I didn't really care for it. I guess I will have to make a return visit to WPE to get Creme Brulee.

Lunch Continued

Karin ordered her favorite pizza & I don't remember what Tom had ordered. You will just have to read her TTRs to find that out!

We sat for awhile chatted & got to know one another. We had to leave soon to meet up with our DIL. We figured that they should be at WDW by then. So Karin & Tom gave us a ride in the rental convertible to CBR. Of course they put the top down which was lots of fun. Our Dismeet was all too short, maybe another with Tom & Karin will be in a future visit to WDW.

Karin gave me a gift that was so nice, also totally unexpected. I will certainly put it to good use. I especially like the Mickey pants tissue holder.

Sounds like a really great DISmeet!

I'm not a big fan of WPE, but to be fair, I've only eaten there once. I have a hard time turning down EoS when we're in DTD!

Dinner At Teppan Edo

I called my DIL to catch up with them & to plan the rest of the day. They had hit the ground running sincce check in. They were at the MK about to ride the Jungle Cruise. They had already ridden SM & climbed the SFR Treehouse. We decided to meet at Teppan Edo in Epcot for our 5:00 ADR.

We stayed at CBR to unpack & just chill for awhile. We had been up since 3:30am because of our early flight.

A couple of hours later we left for Epcot. After a mad dash to the WS we arrived a couple of minutes late. After a short wait we were seated. We shared our table with another couple about my age.

I ordered the filet, Bob the scallops, DIL the sword fish, Emily the chicken & Kelly the chicken. We had the menu covered.LOL Bob had his Budweiser & I went for the Kirin Beer.

Our chef was pretty funny & she did a good job catching the shrimp & making the volcano. She had a thick accent , so was a little hard to understand.
