Joining in !!! Your TR reminds me to never travel with family members. I planned a trip with my sister who would get a military discount. Really just too good of a deal to pass up. And we had a free place to stay for them, but she cancelled about a month before the trip saying she couldn't afford it. But the real truth was, it just wasn't something she wanted to spend her money on. In the end, it turned out to be a good thing. We did take my husband's daughter (my step daughter) with us in 2010 and she was lots of fun and a big help with the kids. Looking forward to reading more .....

Wow!! LOVED the rest of your FOTLK pictures!! Also, even though I am not usually impressed with camera phone pictures, yours are great!

Just saying here, I don't normally drink, as I'm diabetic, but at that point....I would have had two!

My grandsons always want to go to Pizzafari. We went there on their first trip, so for them it is now a tradition. If I eat there, I have the Hot Italian Style Sandwich. Well 1/2 any way. That thing is HUGE! Usually though, I am going to Yak and Yeti CS, or FTB and carting stuff back, so we can all eat together.

So sorry for your sister in law, and so happy you are going to have a drama free evening!! Looking forward to more!

FOTLK definitely needs to be on my "must see" list. I neglected it far too long. And I couldn't agree with you more about Cirque. It really is a wonderful experience.

Just a little bit, huh? I did really feel bad for her but I was also glad that I wasn't around to see it. I never guess that she would get sick on a ride. I thought it might scare her a bit, but not cause her to cookie toss.

Thank you! Sometimes I think I worry a little bit too much, but that's just how I'm wired. Plus, in a weird sort of way, I wanted to get away from everyone for awhile. Bad, I know.

Thanks Dawn! The day did not start out perfect, but I rolled with it. Except, I really wanted that sugar cane mojito. Maybe a little too much.

Thanks. sometimes I think I worry too much, but in a way, I was ready to get a few moments to myself. I think it was awesome that they took me so quickly. Bam! I was there in no time!

Woo Hoo for a drama free night. I think things started to turn the corner this night. Everyone was happy and seemed to be in the pixie dust spirit. I guess it doesn't make for the best TR reading - people like drama. But it made for a god evening for me.

That makes it even better. Wow $15 for a tune up. THAT's a bargain. My tune-ups are never that cheap. I had an old flute that I hoped Nick would want to learn to play, but he never did.

The one thing I remember thinking was - this is going to sound good in my TR. I guess once SIL tossed she was all better. Thank goodness.

His phone is always turned down, but I think the calls vibrate more than the texts, so I didn't even try the texts. He is very inconsistent with the phone. It's very annoying and we have had many discussions about that.

Ugh - that is so annoying that you had to go home and check on the. Kids.

Brian pretty much always answers his texts, unless he's asleep.

They did not eat before the coaster and I have no idea whether SIL ate after the coaster. Maybe the empty stomach did her in?

We will get them then but of course could use them/need them more on the front end.

Not $14 each more though.
I hear ya sister. I have 6 mugs now with the same design because I had 3 from the girl's trip and got 3 this trip. Here's hoping there are no changes before October.

I hope that your brother is patient and sticks it out for the parades. I can see not wanting to wait - ok - then just get behind the crowd at the last minute. But at least you get to see it. Having a great spot and leaving before it starts.

Now that's cool. I can't imagine what it takes to be that good. I admire people who are at the top in terms of their musicianship. I love the alto sax. Great instrument. And, of course, the guitar is near and dear to my heart.

ACK! I would hate to get queasy on rides. That must stink. I have a friend who absolutely can't ride the teacups for exactly that reason. I was so thankful that SIL's cookie toss was a momentary thing. If she really had to leave the park, that would have been terrible.

Now those are a few really creative ways to do a cookie toss. Unfortunately, that was not the type of cookie toss that we encountered on this vacation.

I really DID want to try one of those sugar cane mojitos. I hope they are still there in October. fingers crossed.

Got behind. RL stinks sometimes. LOL!

Love the FOTLK pictures. I really want to watch it when we go. I can't wait!!

We will stomach Pizzafari only if DS really wants to eat there. It's definitely not our favorite place to eat at AK. We definitely love Flame Tree. It's one of our faves.

I had to laugh when I read about you SIL getting sick. Not that it's funny, but because that happened to me. Of course I was 15 and did not like roller coasters. To this day I still swear that I lost my lunch for the past three weeks. LOL! It took me years before I would brave another coaster.

Sugar Cane mojito! Sounds yummy!!

Can't wait to read more!!

Yup - that was the beginning AND the end of roller coasters for SIL. I felt bad for her. No one wants to ride something for fun and end up sick.

Every time I see that sign I wished I had gotten that mojito. I went back later in the trip, but I don't really remember seeing the mojito sign again.

The Pool - it didn't really start bothering me until the NEXT day.

Totally got no blame whatsoever. However, if I had any idea that she got sick on rides, I never would have suggested it. I thought it might scare her a bit, but not make her puke!

She was tested at the end of the school year and is now in talented music.
That's so great that your son played sax all through college. It takes a lot of dedication. It sounds like both of your girls have the music gene too. Tell your youngest not to stop playing. I really regret the years I didn't play because I can never get them back and I know I would be a better musician if I had stuck with it.

Glad you like the pics. It was hard to photograph some things because of all the movement.

I can't do EE back to back because it makes me dizzy. It's definitely that backwards G force that does it. I do better if I keep my eyes closed in the dark. Maybe I should have told SIL to do that.

Gosh! I don't know? I hadn't even thought about it. And even if I had wanted to, it would have taken me forever to get in my sherpa bag. He would be halfway back to SSR before I found my money. My hands were very full. But, you're right - I probably should have tipped. Doh! I was just so happy to be home I stopped thinking.

Not wrong at all. In fact, I was kind of wondering how many people saw that. I mean - its pretty hard to clean puke out of the bushes. I'm pretty sure that Denny was grossed out. I could tell by the way he retold the story.

If you ever want to join a marching band, just say the word. $400 Delaware state income tax break if you do 12 events a year. Just sayin' There are events in Newark, New Castle, and Wilmington.

I think different rides hit different people in different ways. She is just one of the unfortunate ones who gets "tea cup" sick on EE. Such a bummer. She'll probably never go on another roller coaster.

I know, right! Thank goodness for that. I guess as soon as she got it all out of her system, she recovered. That would have stunk if she had to leave. Everyone would have left unless good old Uncle Denny offered to take the kids.

I am so glad their park day wasn't ruined. That would have been terrible.

Here's the thing about Disney knowledge. People have to be in the right frame of mind to fully investigate before they go to the parks. They didn't really do that. They didn't think they needed to. I couldn't tell them otherwise. Live and learn.

I'm glad to hear people say it's smooth! It's pretty fast too, right? We've been watching videos trying to convince the girls it will be fun. So far they aren't buying in.
It's very smooth and the drop feels fast. Here's the thing - when you get to the drop - close your eyes. When you go backwards - close your eyes. You will get through it fine. That's how I got over my fear of coasters!

Ugh - sorry the girls don't want to go. It really is fun and it's fairly short. Anyone can stand 2 1/2 or 3 minutes of fun and there are only two spots that are scary. The rest is just sitting back and enjoying.

I was so lucky to get that ride back. But now I feel bad because it didn't even occur to me to tip. Thanks Pam!

More is coming!

Be back soon with the rest of the replies!

I am ever so far behind!! I am so sorry. I have decided I will go back and use your chapter links till I am caught up. I am going to comment on each as I go along...

So... (and this is sad how far back in links I had to start with..where has July gone?? )

Prelude to a Meltdown 1

I love eating upstairs at CHH. I think of all the counterservice restaurants, I love the theming of this one the most.

I am so glad you got a group shot. I know that is one of those things that can be a "we will get to it later" and then end up not doing. It is always nice when you do take the time and it ends up being a good thing. Happened to us on our recent DLR trip. I wanted an entry arch pic and everyone told me there was time to get it later. I am glad I got the one I did because even though I though "yeah, I will get a better one later" I never did.

I love the picture of CP!!! What an amazing shot.

Prelude to a Meltdown 2

Dh tried the lobster roll at CHH in December. I don't think it was that... um... that goopy then. I could be wrong though.

Love the IASM pics. Honestly, I am never bothered by the occasional flash going off. It is a split second. My dh is so anti picture taking on rides that he hates me to snap pictures even with the flash off... I love when he isn't with me so I can get the occasional one with the flash. Pictures like you got are just so worth being a bit naughty for.

about Nick and his phone. What is it about boys that age? My oldest is ALWAYS texting!!!

I hate it when people stop dead in the center of a row when they are suppose to move to the end. Ok... I can understand if it isn't going to be a full theater...and it doesn't take a genius to figure out if it is a packed show. If you can see more people are filtering in behind you... keep moving!

The Meltdown! 1

Oh my gosh. I did not read your PTR and I was not aware of all the drama between you and your brother. I made me so very very sad. I can relate. I have, I fear, become a sort of joke to my inlaws. Sil and Bil have never taken their kids to Disney. They both live on the other side of the state from us...and I believe the "biggest" vacation they have taken the kids on is to travel to our area (where of course they don't tell us to until after the fact and so we don't see them) My dh isn't quite into Disney like I am..but when pushed to answer just how much "into it" he is... his answer is usually, a "well, I can't hate it...look how many times I have let you talk me into going" Both dh and I have suggested to them Disney and they laugh and kinda poke fun. I know behind my back they scoff and me and my trips. (I do go without dh on occasion) Dh and I though... we feel that before they know it those kids of theirs will be grown and gone. So... I have the feeling like I and my favorite place are this joke to them... but I also feel sad that while they joke (I think they too use the "Disney koolaid" reference) they really are missing out and more importantly...so are their kids.

I guess I don't understand why he was blaming you for the weather? Why was he so angry with everyone "trusting Disney" to keep them safe from the storm? Not that I think most of us Disney people trust that Disney will keep us safe... but what if we did? What did he care? It isn't like he was told he had to just trust in Disney. (which...is kinda an absurd thought)

I am glad they got back to their car ok though... I imagine that could have caused even more problems had they not.

$225 for all of you for breakfast... not too shabby. We paid not a lot less for 4 adults and one child at Goofy's Kitchen recently in DL. I can see where having the TIW card saved you a bit of money.

That is quite the line for the People mover!!!
