So glad you will get to see Disney in all it's holiday glamour. The castle is just breathtaking all lit up.

I'm so glad you are getting a Christmas trip, Queen! I really want to convince my family to go then--I just don't think they understand how wonderful the decorations would be!!

That brought tears to my eyes to hear someone did that to that poor lady! It makes me mad, too, and I'm so glad you did something about it. Good job sticking up for her!

Whoa, parade drama! I'm glad you didn't have coke thrown on you, but I am so happy you said something to the parade viewing spot stealer.
Beautiful parade pictures!! I'm kind of a minor Star Wars fan, I would like to see SWs weekends sometime, and your pictures are just making me want to even more!

Great pics of the parade! I haven't been to Star Wars weekends in like seven years. You make me really want to go.
I find that people really just don't care anymore....it actually breaks my heart!

We really enjoyed our time there and I would definitely go back. It was something different that we would never have booked a vacation to attend, however, am so glad it worked out that we were there when it was on!

Your pictures are great of the parade (and I wouldn't know ANY of their names).
You know when you have to stand there for a moment for something to sink in because you can't believe it just happened....that's how we were.

The fact that I even had to say something still boggles my mind. And we both (me and Shan) kept looking at each other ... saying who does that??

Thanks, we really did enjoy it and didn't let her rain on our parade

The girl in the convertible is Ashley Eckstein. She voices one of characters in the Clone Wars cartoon. More impressive is that she started her own company (Her Universe) that focuses on Geek clothes for girls.
Thank you so much!

We met her that day, she was signing autographs are her line of clothing is adorable. Shan didn't get anything because she said other that SWW she didn't see herself wearing it anywhere else! She was lovely!!

I wouldn't know all of the names of the characters in the parade either. I know my son would think that was the coolest though seeing them all walk down the street
Me neither. Another thing that makes me crazy is how horrid society has become. Why can't we just be kind to one another...is it really that hard?

I bet he would! Hopefully one of your trips will coincide. Hope you're having a great weekend!

Great parade pics! I cannot believe that someone would throw food and drink at someone else over parade viewing spots. How awful! I am so glad that you helped make those ladies' trips a little nicer. I wouldn't be able to let go of it either. It's shameful. I'll bet that they had a really nice afternoon with you and Shanleigh though.
I'm dying to see it too! It's been way too long! Hope that all works out for you too!

I'm glad you said that...cause I just couldn't stand there and say nothing. I think nowadays most people don't want to get involved but I'm not one of them! People need to be help accountable for the actions and words... ok getting off my soapbox now

The parade looks like a lot of fun! Hope you weren't too steamed to enjoy it!
That's too bad, but unfortunately, does seem to be more common now than when we first started going to WDW

We lucked in and went early enough to be able to enjoy the shade of that side of the street so it was great!

It's been a long time since I've seen the lights too and I miss them.

Good for her...that's so exciting! I hear ya girl...too long for us too so I have that "whatever it takes" attitude to get us down there!

As a matter of fact both...at the beginning she kept pushing her son and telling him not to look at anyone then when another younger man said something to her she completely ignored him and then said something not very nice to him. That's when I jumped in.....

I hope they got a nice lifetime ban to go with that!



We can only wish!
Note to self: Be very, very nice to Queen.


LOL...I'm easy to get along with what are you talking about

Oh, it's not so hard... here let me help.

1st is Mickey
2nd is Minnie
3rd is Darth Vader
4th is Donald Duck...
... and so on. See? Nothing to it!

(okay, I don't a lot of the rest either. But I did recognize the guy who owns the Mall!)

You're so smart...should have consulted with you before I wrote to post! Say hi to your ladies from us and we hope you guys have a great weekend.

Thank you and I cannot wait to see it! I'm sure like most things, the pictures don't do it justice!

For a Christmas nut like me it's pure heaven! I do tend to go a little crazy with the Christmas themed merchandise...must save more money!

I would have wanted someone to do that if it was my mom! She was so sweet and kind and we really had a great time with them!

I honestly don't know what I would do if someone did that to me....I'd rather not think about it cause I don't think it would be pretty

You guys would definitely enjoy it...one of these years I'm sure you'll get to take it in!

Ahhhh I never really get the people that feel the need to bring all their nasty drama to Disney.
I mean it's one thing if people get ticked off at work or in traffic but come on... look around and calm the heck down!

Loving your parade pictures though!
So cool to see all the SW characters!

And YAY for your Christmas trip! Absolutely stunning at that time of year... I mean ever more so than usual

Don't you just love people like that? The ones that just stand in front of people just because. Seriously... the world needs a kick in the behind or something like that to still have these people around. And throwing popcorn and coke? They should go join one of the casts of the Real Housewives or something, not be watching a Disney parade. Geez people!

Love all the pictures from the parade! And I would totally be the same way, naming all the wrong people and stuff like that. I'll see some Star Wars movies one day. One day! But either way, Minnie and Mickey are just as adorable in their little Princess Leia and Jedi outfits. (:

Can't wait to read about the rest of your day!

You and I have the exact same way of thinking girl!!! I don't like drama at the best of time, but at Disney, I just can't tolerate it!

Thanks, it was sure a great day!

So excited for this Christmas trip! Couldn't agree more, there is something about the parks being transformed for Christmas that just makes it even more special!

It's hilarious that you say that....that's what Shanleigh and I said ... it's like watching of episode of Real Housewives!!

Aren't they cute! We had an absolute ball there....heat and all!!

Coming right up...well give me about an hour to write it

Good Sunday morning everyone! I am officially on vacation again so I thought there is no excuse to get an update done so here I am...laundry is in, supper is in the slow cooker and I have Christmas music playing....don't judge me, it's cold, miserable and I felt like listening to it

I thought I would finish off our SWW day! See, originally this day was to be a pool morning, then lunch at Les Chefs due France at 245pm then stay at Epcot all evening. After our talk with the CM that this should be the day we attend SWW there would be no going back to the resort for a swim...

We decided we would take the boat to Epcot to catch our 245pm lunch! We had never been here for lunch, always for dinner, so we were both very excited! Oh lordy it was a hot one too but we headed out knowing shortly we would be inside in a lovely air conditioned room!

Shan cfarrying around our SWW merchandise! I don't know why we lost our minds that morning and forgot to send it to the room!

A shot across the way while we were waiting to get in!

I took this picture from our window seat! See Belle and Beast...the best part was when they walked by and stood there to wave to us while we ate...magical! I couldn't have wished for a better seat....our day just kept getting better and better!

Both Shan and I ordered the 3 courses....but the exact same thing. We started with the lobster bisque....oh.my.word....creamy goodness! At first I thought it would be way too much food, but Shanleigh reminded me we wouldn't be eating dinner....I love her

I don't know if there is any better bread .... I could eat this whole loaf by myself...again don't judge me

Neither of us had any clue this little chef would still be visiting at the time we had our ADR....another pleasant surprise!

Mad that I hadn't got him in the original shot....he was fantastic!

This is, hands down, one of my favourite pictures of the trip....she is laughing and having a great time and I really believe I captured it here!

Our main entree....croque monsieur....again, pure richness, could never eat the whole thing, but oh so good!

Sorry, let me just say I'm sorry. Once again, I was too busy getting caught up in all that is WDW and I forgot to take a picture of this before I devoured it.....

We had a lovely young man look after us and he was all about enjoying the experience. He was in no way rushing us along, if anything, he was telling us to have another drink, relax, you're on vacation! Eventually we had to move along and this is what we saw!!!!

Turns out is was a fire that had actually shut down the interstate (oh dear, is that what it's called) anyhoo, the big highway!!! We decided as we were walking along that we were exhausted. The heat was so intense that we decided we would head for the buses.

Our favourite little fish and chips shop!

Off Kilter...can't be at Epcot and not stop by our homeland! Have a little song and dance much to my daughters embarrassment! You'd think she'd be used to me by now!

As you can see, the fire appears to be getting worse!

Changing the sand carving from Chimpazees to Brave!

A closer shot....I have so much respect for people who have artistic talent, remember the Tigger drawing from last trip, I have none!

Merida and her brothers!

We headed back and turned on the tv right away when we got in. As we were heading back we noticed it was getting closer and closer. We weren't in our room 5 minutes when my dad called to see if we were stuck in the traffic of it. I guess he had it on CNN so thought he should check in on us!

We spent the rest of the evening in our room and roaming around the resort! I didn't take the camera as we literally did it on a whim! It was an end to a great day!

Wow, I want to meet that guy doing the sand sculpting! Wow, wow, WOW! I'd just like to shake his hand and tell him he rocks.

I'm so loving the pictures of Shan with Remy in Les Chefs! I was wishing I got to meet him last year but no luck. That's such a cute little thing they do!!

Also... yikes, that fire looks bad! I hope no one was hurt!

Hey, no judgment here! But good for you having vacation.

Love Chefs de France!!! Yum yum yummy!

I hate those moments when I buy something in WDW and forget to have my purchases sent back to the room!

You and Shan are just like my Mom and I. That's so like us ordering the same three courses.

Aaaahhhhhh!!! Baguette. I'm in heaven.

I love that picture with Shan and Remy! It's just so cute.

Oooohhhhh, croque monsieur. I have eaten that plenty of times in Europe. Heavenly.

No, Shan will never be used to you doing funny / embarrassing things. 31 years and I still sometimes have moments with my Mom.

Girl, it's never too early for Christmas music! Especially if it's chilly outside. We were jammin' to some last night in the car on the way home.

Lunch at Chefs looks delicious! Especially that Lobster Bisque. YUMMO! I'm glad yall were able to see Remy. What a sweet surprise

I can totally relate on being SO hot. What is it about World Showcase that just makes it feel THAT much hotter?! I remember standing in line last June for Snow White and sweating buckets!
