how fun, I went on Spaceship earth for the first time on our last trip too, and I had been to WDW twice before

We really need to check out the interactive games and rides next time we go, you all look like you are having so much fun. Glad the ride with Demetri was somewhat mild

Can't wait to see whats next

I love Spaceship Earth! I think that is my favorite ride at Epcot. I haven't been to Epcot since Oct. 2010 and that was just for one day of that trip I can't wait to go back we will be there for 2 days this time.

I did Sum of All Thrills last time but we didn't go upside down. We did one just like it at the Upsidedown museum here and I was so sick when we got off. I think River might have to do Sum of All Thrills by himself this year

I'm glad Demetri got his bus back and no one kept it!

I can't wait to hear about the rest of your day

Now at this point we had completed our list for the day and it was way too early to head to Chef Mickey’s so we decided to head to Mexico to go on another ride.











While on the ride I took a fireworks pic with my phone and tagged my good friend that I’d visited Mexico that day and thought of her. I can’t get a good pic of those fireworks with my regular camera!

















They had some cool things in the shop (I have never really looked around in here)





Next we were off to our dinner reservation………………………

I've really enjoyed your PR. It sounds like you guys had so much fun! I am also wondering what the Test Track refirb. is going to entail because my girls LOVE that ride! You guys have taken some wonderful pictures and had some really great character interaction. The Goofy store is adorable. I love that Ariana was able to say her age to Aurora; how awesome! (I have a daughter with Selective Mutism so I know how exciting those breakthorough moments can be! How special to have one at Disney.) Can't wait to hear more.

So I am going to post an update without Tracy's input as sh has been pretty busy lately.... hopefully she will be able to jump in with some comments and pictures


After that we decided even though it was still early we would make our way to CM’s. We were too early and they told us we had to wait half an hour to check in (really?) So we decided to grab a drink in the lounge while we wait. I got Sangria and it was very yummy!!!!
I don’t remember what Tracy had but I’m pretty sure she did not like it


Then I checked in again and they were willing to take us this time. We got our picture taken with the Mickey Statue (Why do they do this and who really buys the pictures? It’s just a statue, you will see the real Mickey in a few minutes) and were led to our table. We quickly ran up to get our food (after I ordered another Sangria )


then the characters started coming.


First up was Minnie, I believe Demetri was off getting food





Then Pluto





Goofy, I believe Demetri was off getting Ice Cream





Donald Duck





Eryka told him 1st was the worst 2nd the best so he signed #2 for her





And last but not least the Big Cheese himself





After dinner the plan was originally to head back to Epcot so we could watch Illuminations, but my kids came to me and said they really wanted to go back to the hotel and do some more swimming.
I knew Tracy really wanted to take Ariana to see Illuminations so I figured she would head back there with her kids, but she decided swimming sounded good too.


We decided to walk to MK and catch a bus back to Pop.

I love it! First is the worst but second is the best. That's exactly how I feel. Donald is definitely the best.

Good update. We bought the picture with the Mickey statue in Dec 2010. Since it was Ethan's 1st visit and 1st character meal. Heck we may even but it again as a good measuring stick to his trips.

Good update. I'm sure Tracy will be joining soon enough. Sucks when life gets in the way of the DISBoards.

Other than 1st trip I don't see much point of the pick with the statue I can take with my own camera
