Sounds great! Now I'm intrigued about which ride you rode three times!

And what ride at EPCOT did we ride 3 times yesterday? You'll have to wait for the TR

Off to MK today but the crowd level has jumped from 3.something to 8.something because of FantasyLand previews! We won't get there till late afternoon - we all needed a sleep in and go slow morning today. Not aiming for anything in particular today, just soaking in the atmosphere.
Glad to hear you are loving Epcot. It is our family's favourite park and I agree, the World Showcase is somewhere I could spend alot of time. Love it.

I'm going to guess you rode Soarin 3 times.

Have fun at MK, I think you are going there with the right attitude for a rating 8 day.

Premium outlets at Rhineland for me today, was meant to be a day off but instead 6hrs and more than $500 later!! Did get some great bargains tho....Carter's for kids had 50% off most stuff then I had a coupon for 20% extra off.....sketches were already cheap at around $45 but buy one pair get theotherpair 50% off, we'll it's just foolish to pass up that deal!!!
Imoney came home coz I ran out of cash!!!
Magic kingdom for us tomorrow as its a recommended park even tho it's the start of jersey week, I plan on being there for rope drop!!! If I can get the kids and the oldies organised

So exciting reading about all your travels!

I have a US friend visiting right now too, so loving seeing her photos pop up on fb. They got to ride a dress rehearsal of the Little Mermaid yesterday! (Or today, or whenever it was in the timezones ) Hope you guys all manage to too if it's a ride you'd like to do!


I have such fond memories of certain parts of world showcase - we did a couple of the Kim Possible missions and my (then) DD4 was absolutely convinced it was all the real deal and she was a "fighter girl" lol! (Fighter girl = good guy fighting evil )

I know so many people are not fussed by HS - we spent 9 hours there yesterday! And we will go back next week Star Tours (for a family of Star Wars fans) was so absolutely mind blowing!

Dabecs, wow 9 hours in a park. I don't think our family could do 9 hours straight .

I was one who wasn't sold on the whole HS thing. I remember PIO encouraging me to persevere and by the 3rd visit to the park I began to enjoy it more. Of course I'm in love with TSM so that helped.

I'm leaving here tomorrow. Should be home on Sunday. Don't know how many pictures I've taken but it feels less than I normally take.

Catch you all in normal Oz timezone soon.

29 sleeps for us too i am starting to get really excited but also sooooo stressed out at everything I still have to do - more on the work front than trip wise as I think that is pretty much sorted now....I can see some late nights at work on my horizon
