Another great update! I think I'm getting my own Yeti for my next trip! Great mascot!

I loved your recaps. I just love that picture on EE - Priceless! Your simba PP pic is cute too, no matter what you think.

Way to score a TT FP for 4pm.

Lunch? Hmmmmmmm - for a newb - I'm thinking Le Cellier only because that's where I taking my newb guests this summer!

I love mascots! Yeti just kind of happened and he's now grown into something that I have to keep up with. But I'm afraid that I'm going to run out of things for him to do.

You'll have to wait and see about lunch. I don't always do what's expected. Clearly.

Sleeping in after the night you guys had was probably the best option!

OMG the Poly is so beautiful. I need to stay there!

Yay, Epcot!

Such an Epcot picture. I know you'll love this Jen!
I don't know if the Jen you're talking to is me, but I LOVE that Epcot-y picture! I always take a picture of those things, always! I love that Fountain of Nations picture too! Ahhhh, I can't wait to be back in Epcot!

Aww, Nemo, it's always so much fun, although I'm not gonna lie-the Big, Blue World song kind of makes me depressed.

Haha, love the Yeti's adventures! I want one! I always think about bringing a mascot with me on my trips, but I have a hard enough time taking TR notes that a mascot seems like it would be a pain for me!

First of all, I totally know how you feel about bringing a newb - believe it or not, Tom had never been to Disney and the first time we went together, I was so nervous about him liking it the whole time!

Secondly, the reason why Farrell was reminded of the Bellagio is because the person who designed the Fountain of Nations ALSO did the one in Las Vegas!

I loved your recap! It's a good way to remind us what happened... which is basically what a recap is supposed to do... SO YAY!

I'm glad Farrell's muffin was very exciting. Who wants a boring muffin? Not I.

Oh no... Bruce strikes again. I swear, I've seen too many good people get eaten by him.

Love the recap...great idea.

I remember when we used to stay at the Poly my youngest sister (who was pretty little when we stayed there) loved the monorail so much she didn't want to walk to the TTC.

I also really enjoy Nemo...it's definitely my favorite Pixar movie!

You're right! Black lace is super versatile.

You definitely need to stay at the Poly if you ever get the opportunity. Beautiful resort for sure.

It was you I was thinking of! LOL. I probably should have mentioned that. Whoops. Fail.

My TR notes are never a problem, because I have a really good memory and I do it all electronically because I type so much faster than I write. Plus, I take tons of pictures, so it always creates a narrative for me. When something really funny happens, I use my phone to take the note of it too. Mascot's are tons of fun!

I know, there are a lot of them, aren't they? Some of them are moving targets, but I figure a ticker makes it kind of real, right? F&W I'm not sure about yet. It depends on some timing for work, but we're aiming for 10/10-10/14. But that can definitely change.

It's nerve wracking, isn't it?! I think because we like it so much and we're nervous if someone else doesn't.

I had no idea about that! You always learn something new, right?

Haha, glad you liked the recap. I've never done that before, so I figured I would give it a try.

I don't like any boring food!

Bruce gets all the good people, I know. I don't know why he's so enticing.

I only ever stayed there as pretty much an adult, so the walk was never a problem for me. But I could imagine that if I was little, I would have always wanted to ride the monorail too, because I LOVED the monorail!

Great slow start to the day! The chocolate croissants look so good! I had one at Starring Rolls (not sure how similar the two are) and it was awesome! I plan to eat one in March!

I agree on the FP return time to TT...especially considering it was a major holiday! And Mouse Gears is my favorite! I almost enjoy it more than World of Disney. Maybe because I get so turned around in WOD and it is always so crowded!

I like the recap! I tried doing something similar because I know when I read TRs and a day ends I can't remember what all happened that day!

That Yeti...he was a handful wasn't he!

Yay! Love the updates! Great shots of Epcot.
I definitely agree on the walking from the Poly to the TTC, my room was the last room in the building closest to the ttc, and it was awesome!! Such a short ride to MK/Epcot, heck yes! I love the ridiculous faces in the pictures too! Sometimes those just make moments the greatest!

I like the recap
Love Epcot, Yeti's updates are adorable. I actually took a yeti (a home made craft done by a friend of mine) to Europe and did things like that with him, he was another traveling yeti. Our friends all took turns with him when we were going places. It was fun

Um, I see absolutely NO reason why you shouldn't have had a chocolate croissant every day!!!

Hahaha the walk from the Poly to the TTC IS very convenient when you get your directional confidence! Apparently we needed a navigator like you!

Good job scoring the TT FP's! Can't wait to hear more about your Epcot day!
