It sounds like you've got a great plan for Epcot! The wedding dress? Gorgeous!

Playing catch up again!

I've had really great meals at Coral Reef, but the service has always been so incredibly slow for us, hope it's better for you!

Very exciting that Mark & Alisha have moved their wedding up! I'm little perplexed as to why this would bother her mother though, I mean, it's still almost a year away That dress is drop dead gorgeous!

Your day 4 plans are sounding great! I love snacking around WS instead of eating a big meal, but I rarely do it for some reason.

I'm sorry to hear about the turn your MIL has taken. I know this will be a difficult day for you and Mark, you'll be in my thoughts and prayers

I am so very sorry to hear this. I know I am behind... but know that you are in my prayers.

On a positive note though... WEDDING!!! less than a year a way. The dress is beautiful. Does she like the champagne color too? My dd had a hard time... she really wanted white... but most come in an off white or the champagne. Personally, I like the champagne... kinda a "classic" look. Combined with the style of dress and I think it is a stunning combination!!

Your trip plans are coming together... can't believe how soon fall will be here.

Your Epcot plans sound great!

I've always wanted to eat at Rose & Crown but we missed our 2 ADRs there. Someday I will actually eat there and not just drink there.

On my way to lunch; when I get back I'll do replies, an update on an ADR that I changed the time on (and one I am trying to add) and an update.

But, in the meantime, I had to post this:

Well, it turns out Alisha went with her mom and grandma shopping Monday and she found another dress and she is torn between the two.

Rose & Crown is so yummy! But, I can see your point of why you may cancel it.
We do love Rose & Crown too; the only reasons I'd cancel is: 1) we've done it a number of times and 2) we are going with Nicki and Todd in December (although Mark doesn't know that obviously)

Thanks, Queen. She will truly be gorgeous in any dress she finds and wears.

You really need to get back to R&C, Rosie. No hot Italians though.

I love the dress Alisha picked out! I can't believe they are getting married next year, but why wait, right? Brandon and I were only engaged 6 months before we got married!

Your Day 4 plans sound great, I love Epcot days! Rose and Crown is really good, but I can definitely understand canceling to have more time to explore the World showcase and have some adult beverages!
Thanks, Jen for the hug...much appreciated.

Mark and I were only dating three or four months before we were engaged. And look at us now.

I really think I'll end up cancelling R&C, but I'll wait until we are there to be sure.

Great plans for Epcot especially meeting your fav characters!
It is a gorgeous dress.

I love Soarin'...I could do it several times in a day and never grow tired of it.

Love your Epcot morning. I do the same thing - get my Soarin FP and then ride LWTL. I did that my last morning in June and I had entire boat to myself.

Love your character pics!
Thanks, Mary Ellen. It will now be interesting to see if she sticks with it since she saw something else (which I had a feeling she would).

An entire boat to yourself? WOW! We always seem to hit LWTL when there is a line.

That is a stunning dress, she'll be a gorgeous bride. I'm glad that she's including you so much in the planning. Sometimes the Mother of the Groom gets edged out.

Sounds like a great Epcot day! If I could put in one request? I'd like to see lots of Canada funny hat pictures. Canada has the best ones.
Thanks for the thoughts and prayers.

I'm enjoying being included in the planning. Yesterday they booked with the photographer; tonight they are going to the caterer (hall is already booked).

It looks like the wedding plans are coming along nicely.
I agree...the food is good walking or sitting.

Yes, plans are coming along well. Engagement pictures are next on the schedule.

Thanks, Michelle. Soarin' is the best (and with no Test Track, we will have to do Soarin' more often).

Thanks, Lisa. Yes; I just wish she could have gotten a picture or found the dress she saw Monday to send me.

Please don't worry about catching up...I just now caught up on everyone's TR's.

Now that you mention it, our service was a little slow in January, but it gave Cayley a chance to nap.

I'm not sure why Alisha's mother was against them moving it up (maybe because Alisha just turned 21????), but she seems to be better about it.

Thanks for the prayers; Mark's had a really rough week with it all.

Ann, I know you are thinking about us...please don't worry.

Yes, less than a year away. 324 days to be exact.

Alisha is tall and thin and I think she can pull just about anything off. Trip is getting closer and closer...which is a good thing as Mark really needs this vacation.

You are a hoot, Tim. Maybe we should eat and THEN drink there next trip?

Well, I got the replies done, caught up on everyone's TR's and have to leave for the train shortly. I'll get that update done tonight to finish our Day 4.

I did change our ADR at the Studios on Day 2 from 12:15 p.m. to 11:20. I think it was Ann who told me that if you don't get there close to opening that you can have a long, long wait for your table. I'd rather have it earlier since we are going back to the resort to swim/rest before EMH's at the MK that evening.

I'm also trying to find a spot to fit in Cape May Cafe after reading Nilla's update on their meal there (we've not been since they put the crab legs back on the menu).

The first dress is beautiful and she found a second? Picture of that one? I'm sure we all could help her decide...

So sorry about your MIL.

Smart move to change your 50's PT resie to closer to opening. We waited almost an hour to be seated last time we ate there. Thankfully we had a blast with our server and the food was great!

I'm glad someone pointed out your tickers, they are great!

Yes, I'm pretty sure you knew about it. This is the "SURPRISE" 60th birthday for Mark in December.

Thanks, Tink. They won't let you take pictures at the dress shop and she can't find it on any websites.

Maybe it was you who told me about 50's PT and the wait?

Day 4, Part 2

I left off with us visiting Pooh and Tigger in England. Up next, we would be just about arriving here:



And hopefully see a very pretty lady:



Mark may try on one of these:



And then we will arrive here:





We will stop in Italy and Germany along the way for a couple more of these:





We will hit the rest of the countries:







If we are not too tired, we will do some shopping at MouseGears in Future World or perhaps if we missed Illuminations watch that.

Up next, what do I have in store for us on Day 5????
