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!
Sometimes, I don't know if they're all the same chocolate croissants. Now, that's not to say that they're not all equally yummy, because they are. But the one's I've gotten at the Main Street Bakery have been different. Who knows.

I was very happy with the return time for TT. Definitely good for the busy time of year that we were there.

I think the recaps are going to stay. It was lots of fun for me to put together actually. And yes, the Yeti is always a handful.

Yes, he does. The whole mission of the trip was "where can we put the Yeti?"

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!
That's awesome for the building you had at Poly! Our room was actually right between the TTC and the GCH, so I really liked the location.

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
That's awesome you took a Yeti to Europe. I'm thinking about doing the same thing myself.

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!
Chocolate croissants everyday for everyone!

I am a good Disney navigator. For sure. I can get you anywhere you want to go without a map.

Aw, great update! Your and Farrell's face-making is pretty funny! I make ridiculous faces all the time, but they don't end up looking funny - I end up looking psychotic.

How were the lines that day? Seems like you're getting stuff done!

I'm loving your croissant every morning - mom and I split that at the MK bakery one morning and it was tasty tasty!

I ended up at the Poly on my solo trip for a moment; I'd never been there before, but I grabbed the monorail over to the MK. It was HUGE!! Wow! I couldn't believe how big it was!!!

I just saw your tickers, too! - maybe my/our trip will overlap with yours this time, as I think we're going 9/24 through 9/30. Then we can have a little dismeet.

Haha, I'm glad that you think our faces look funny. Half the time I just think I look ridiculous.

The lines were kind of long, but we were able to get a few things done before lunch.

Poly is a big resort. It could be very easy to get turned around for sure.

Right now, we don't have a definite time for our F&W trip. I think we're going in October, but I'm not entirely sure yet. I'll definitely let you know though if our trips end up overlapping!

Just got caught up on your TR so far...oh my gosh, you had me laughing out loud! Literally, I LOL'd. The "driving miss daisy" reference and "gibbon arms" really got me.

Love the Yeti updates too...I have a Yeti that is basically a giant puff ball. They make good pets.

Can't wait to read more!

Welcome aboard! Glad that I could give you a laugh about everything.

I love the Yeti, and the giant puff ball one is adorable.

Always a good idea to get a little sleep in every once in awhile...even on vacation. Sounds like a great early afternoon at Epcot. And how could anyone NOT like Nemo? One of my favorite attractions...just makes you happy.

I could not agree more. You need a couple of sleep in days for sure. Keeps you well rested and ready for everything I think. If not, then definitely a midday siesta.

I love Nemo. You're right, it just makes you happy and it makes me smile for sure.

NYE looked like a blast! I would never think of going to WDW over NYE but man, I think you changed my mind. I don't like that they closed the drink stations down early. I mean, hello! It's NYE people! Get with it!

Just as another poster posted, I think i'm going to have to buy a little mascot of my own for our trip. I love the idea of the little mini-TR of the Yeti! So fun!

I was a little disappointed that they closed the drink stations so early. It was kind of like "oh". I would have expected they'd be open a little longer, but it was like a hard stop almost immediately after the fireworks were done. So, the key is that you just have to get all you want before then. But I recommend going, it's a ton of fun.

Mascot's make the trip lots of fun. It's like "what can we do with him now?"

NYE looks awesome! One of my favorite Disney memories is the time I spent NYE at DHS. I love those fireworks.

Good decision sleeping in the next day. Have you ever had a chocolate croissant from Starring Rolls? I tried one once, but I didn't like it much and haven't had one since, but the pictures of your chocolate croissants look really good.

The fireworks are pretty awesome there. It was just all over the place.

I haven't had the chocolate croissant from Starring Rolls. The ones from Captain Cook's were a little different than the ones that I normally have, but they were good. I typically go to the Main Street Bakery.

So I was a few updates behind, but it fun to read them all at once. NYE sounds like it was a fun night!

Makes me miss the good ol' days of Pleasure Island and walking from club to club with my big old bucket pail drink.

Oh Yeti. You and your shenanigans.

oh, and I found a pic online just for you my friend.....



despite the fact that it would have made more sense for me to try to emulate DeeDee, I was always trying to be Tiffany. And forget that I was also tone deaf.

Just happened across your TR's (read this one and "Wait, What? We ordered four pitchers, not five"). Love the fact that you can travel so well with your brother. My brother and I, sadly, would not make it past the first day.

Love the fact that you spent New Years Eve at DHS with your BFF. I spent one NYE with a good friend of mine back in 1995 and I swear, it was one of the best NYE ever!!!!! Would love to take my kids there someday.

Your yeti reports are hilarious!

I miss Pleasure Island so badly! I used to love going there and I was one of the many who mourned the loss of it greatly.

LOVE that picture! Man, I gotta get on YouTube now and get their stuff pulled up. And don't worry. You can still rock out if you're tone deaf.

I'm very fortunate that I have a great brother and that he and I get along so well. We actually work together too, and people ask us all the time how we do it.

This is actually the second NYE that Farrell and I have spent together out of town. One year we were in Vegas, which was crazy!

The Yeti is very fun to document. It's just a matter of how silly we can be.
