Sunday 4-22-12.

We got up & had breakfast in the lounge. (Did I mention that we LOVED that lounge)?? then we walked over to DHS. What a beautiful walk it is!!! I just love that walk along the water and watching the boats go by.

So let's start our walk









Ah I wish I was there now









We are getting closer



I see ears







Nice pic of the hat (well except for the balding head in front of me)



Where are we headed





AH seeing these pictures make me so want to be there.



We got to DHS around 9:10 so we headed right to RNRC & rode twice





My boys headed to one of their favorites (mine too)



One of our pics on the ride



Then of course we headed to ToT





This is the only picture I get while on the ride. After that I am too busy hanging on!!!



A picture of us all. I am so sad when I see that shirt I have on. I bought it at AK a few days before that & somehow came home without it.



We had gotten a FP for RNC after we rode it.




I really didn't want to do Indiana Jones but everyone else did so in we went


Continued In Next Post

We also got another FP for ToT so we used it.



A random pic I took while walking



Then we headed to Lights Motor Action. I was not feeling this either but followed my boys. This was Cody's trip so we did what he wanted.













We did Muppets as it is DH's favorite



Then saw Mulch, Sweat & Shears









Then we made our way out of the park







We did take the boat back to BC.


That is it for tonight. Hopefully another update tomorrow.

Gorgeous pictures from Illuminations! It is my favorite, too!

Beautiful morning at DHS! I rode RNRC for the first time on our trip, and I understand why everyone loves it so much! I really enjoyed it.

I finally got on ToT in April. Know exactly what you mean about holding on!!! Scared me to death!!! But, I would do it all over again.

Maybe I will conquer Rockin' Roller Coaster this trip!

Looks like you had a great morning at DHS.

Love your pictures of Illuminations.

Hi Amy. Hope you are having a great summer. Sure has been a HOT one.



Welcome Angel!! Oh you will love the Beach Club!! I wish we could afford to stay there EVERY time we are there but I truly enjoy our time there. I want to hear all about it when you get back.

That's a bummer about your shirt. Do you have any idea where it might have gone? Maybe it got caught up with some towels and taken away by housekeeping? Did you call and ask? Disney is pretty well known for finding lost items and sending them to you.

Of course, they have not found Mingo yet, but that's probably because he's hiding from them.

We have not seen LMA since Herbie was replaced with Lightning McQueen. We need to do that.

Yay Jackie you rode RNRC!! It can be a little rough (especially on my ears as my head is going from side to side) but I love it!!

Finally got caught up on your TR.

It took Cody & I 3 trips to get on ToT & of course we loved it but I always feel like I NEED to hold on. My DH keeps telling me to just let go & let the lap belt hold me down but I do not trust that thing!

RNRC is so fun!!

I cannot imagine where that shirt went. No I did not call but I probably should have. I figured it may have gotten in one of the boys suitcases so I waited until they unpacked everything but no shirt.

Mingo is having an Adventure in the woods.

I do have to admit that LMA is better with Lightning McQueen.

Great update; that is really a pretty walk from the Beach Club to DHS. I can't wait to be on TOT in just 43 days...my favorite.

I really wish you would miracously find your shirt in your suitcase.

I got to try RnR and ToT this time around and I loved them both! For the most part I missed having my little guy there with me, but it's hard to do the thrill rides with a 5 year old So this trip enabled me to do a few of the things we had to skip in February.

Loving your pictures from the walk down. That was one of my favorite times with my family in Feb. Your pictures brought back some good memories!

I love all the pictures of EPCOT and DHS. I also enjoyed the walk from Broadwalk to DHS.

I love morning also. You know you have the whole day ahead of you.

Aw you are missing great fun on R&R & ToT but I can see why some are a little bit leary to ride.

Cannot imagine where that shirt ended up!

Glad you got to ride both rides. So fun!! Yes I can see it would be very difficult to ride when you have a 5 year old.

It is such a great relaxing walk. I can just picture it in my head & soooo wish I was there right now!! I keep thinking that someone is there right now walking that route.

What a nice day at Hollywood Studios! I loved your walk over from the Beach Club. Great photos as you are approaching the studios. We have only done the walk from HS to BC and always at night, so I don't have nice pictures like that.

You guys really got your ride on early with RnR and ToT!

Love, love, love the picture of the electrified guests in ToT!!! Too cool!

We haven't seen Lights Motor Action with Lightning McQueen. So, Herbie's gone???

I have missed Indiana Jones on the past two trips. The boys watch that while I go solo to either Little Mermaid or Beauty and the Beast.

Yeah we love that walk also. Wouldn't it be great to start every day with RnRC & Tot?? Although the girls at work think we are NUTS going upside down at 9:00 in the am.

Yes Herbie is gone & McQueen is in. Now that we saw it I am good for a few years. Same with Indiana Jones. We had not seen it for a few years but now I am good.
