Haha, that's too funny right? We leave the Poly for DHS and you leave DHS for the Poly.

Thanks! We liked getting a little dressed up for the evening.

Great minds DO think alike! Give me a glow cube, and I just can't resist.

Hey, I'm subbing. Sounds like you guys had a lot of fun, can't wait to hear more about your trip. It's so fun to hear about it from Yeti's perspective too. BTW I loved the Princess Bride reference.

I'm glad you're here.

The Princess Bride is the movie that got me into movie quotes at an early age.

Yeah I use that one and "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father, prepare to die." all the time.

Day 1 Recap and Photopass Pics

All righty. I'm going to start something new on my TRs. I'm going to start a running tally after each completed day of the things we accomplished, the things I wish we would have done, our favorites and foods of the day. Let me know what you guys think.

Things accomplished -

Kilimanjaro Safari
Expedition Everest
Dinosaur
It's Tough to be a Bug

Things we wanted to do but didn't -

Finding Nemo the Musical
Festival of the Lion King
Maharajah Jungle Trek

Farrell's Favorite of the day -

Expedition Everest (followed very closely by Dinosaur)



Farrell's Least Favorite of the day -

Didn't really have one. But if I had to pick, it would probably have been ITTBAB. Wonder why?

Farrell's Food of the day -

Fried Wontons. Yummy!



Danielle's Favorite of the day -

Farrell's reaction to ITTBAB. Hands down.



Danielle's Least Favorite of the day -

Dinosaur and the lack of sound effects.



Danielle's Food of the day -

Fried Wontons. For sure.



Line of the day - "I said Ohana, not Obama!!!!!

Photopass pics -











Honestly, I have no idea what I do with my face sometimes!

Farrell........step away from the shark!!!

Day 2 - Sunday January 1, 2012

Wow! I started typing that and actually typed in 2011 instead of 2012. Figure it out Danielle!

So, clearly we had a great night for NYE. We had not planned on getting up early. See, because getting up early after a night of partying generally does not bode well with Farrell. Me, I'm fine with it. Farrell. Well, it takes a little bit of convincing, yanking, water throwing, and generally jumping on top of her. Only to irritate her and turn her into a lion. Which I didn't want to do. So we slept in. Smart move!

Our funny conversation of the day happened in the morning. I mentioned that I had to make sure I left a tip for Mousekeeping:

Farrell: Are they really called Mousekeeping or is that what you call them?

Me: Yup, Mousekeeping is their official name.

Farrell: So, if they have to knock on the door and announce themselves, do they say "Mousekeeping.....fluff your mouse?"



We were up around 10am and started getting ready. We were out of the room by about 11am and headed to Captain Cook's to get a snacky for breakfast. I got.....

Another chocolate croissant! Yum, yum, yum. No, I did not eat one every day!



Farrell got a very exciting muffin. After that, it was off to Epcot for us.

We walked to the TTC. This is my favorite part of being at the Poly, because you can walk there instead of having to take two monorails. On the way, I took some resort pictures.



As you can see, a beautiful day. Very warm, I think it got up around 80 that day.





I'm so wishing that I was there right now. *sob*

So, if we were walking to the TTC, what was our destination? Epcot of course!!!

Again, I was still nervous. That's the thing about going with a first timer. I think there's always this sense of nervousness about whether or not they're going to like it. Even though I know Farrell and knew she would.



Such an Epcot picture. I know you'll love this Jen!



Farrell loved the fountain. Said it reminded her of the fountain at the Bellagio that we saw a few years ago when we spent NYE in Vegas.

Soarin' fastpasses were listed as gone for the day so we didn't even attempt to get those. We also had our lunch reservation at 2pm, so we just wanted to wander around for a while and explore a little bit.

We headed to Test Track instead. We actually managed to score FPs for a return of 4pm, which I thought wasn't bad, considering we hadn't even walked through the gates of the park until after 12pm.

After this, we did some putzing around Mouse Gears. Farrell wanted to take inventory of what to purchase near the end of the trip. I told her this was the best approach, especially for a newb.

After shopping, we headed to....



MINE!

Even though this is a kids ride, I love the theming through the queue and Farrell really loved it. I mean, come on, who doesn't love Nemo?



Again, me with the face. What's my deal?

Jellies!



In the big blue world!



And then.....it happened......Farrell got too close....I'd like to say it was by accident......but it was more driven by the fact that Farrell and Yeti were being naughty.....and didn't want to listen to me......teaches them!



Bruce, I hope you enjoyed your snack!

Up Next: Where do you think we lunch?

Yeti, Gnome Mickey, and Pirate Mickey

So, let's remember that I went to sleep like this.



And I woke up like this.



Not nice girls! Throwing me on my face like that. Whatever. Honestly, I didn't wake up until later in the day, and they were already in Epcot. Shopping. I don't like shopping. Rather, I prefer to wander around the store and entertain myself.

Dude, Pumbaa, seriously?!



I told the Roaming Gnome that he had nothing on me. Mickey Roaming Gnome? Still got nothing on me!



After shopping we went on Nemo and Friends. Farrell dragged me into something. Danielle will try to say that I was being bad. I stand by the fact that.......I was only.......a little.



Can you see me in between his teeth? Seriously!

Well, I went in search of food then. Because all of this..*ahem*..really good behavior had be working up an appetite!





Ahoy! Is that food I see?!
