That is definitely the hardest part during our family trips. I can't seem to get those girls of mine out of the bed!

Rachel and Elizabeth both sleep until noon usually. The good thing for Rachel is that she has show choir camp during these last three weeks before school begins, so she's already getting used to having to wake up earlier.

That is pretty funny! BTW-I clap too!

I did EE for the first time this last trip May 2011 and I had been looking forward to trying it since I saw it being built in 2004 but DH wouldn't go with me in 2010, so in 2011 I finally had someone to go with me...well let me say it was fun but I won't be in a rush to go back... LOL

Nice room, we stayed there in 1987 (wow a LONG time ago!) in one of the garden wings, it is nice a peaceful over there.

Glad you weren't too late for Epcot EMH despite the delay with the monorail not working.

Love Soarin! I don't mind the feet dangling, it's kind of a funny part of the ride...

Can't wait to read more about your trip!
Welcome! Joey makes the goofiest faces on rides, but he really did look scared when he saw RNRC take off! I had the same look on my face when I first saw it haha. Hopefully one day you'll ride RNRC, it's an adrenaline rush!

Very true- the feet dangling can be funny, I like seeing the people shake their legs all around on the ride!

Sorry to hear you had to get up early and the monorails weren't running! I guess I can see where your title is starting to kick in here. But at least you got some nice and early FPs for Soarin'!

to Living With The Land, such a nice relaxing ride it is and to Spaceship Earth too. I love the game you guys decided to play, I get way too into it when I play sometimes

So jealous you guys got the first row on Soarin', I always miss the boat on that. I gotta agree about the clapping after the ride is over, probably the reason why I keep on going back just for that.

Can't wait to read more!
I can get up early no problem, as long as it's not my alarm or my parents that are waking me up, if I wake up myself at 7 in the morning, I'm perfectly fine! I just hate being woken up not on my own time, weird I know lol

This was just the beginning of the bad working monorails, we didn't get to ride the Epcot monorail until one of the last days of the trip! And I love the Epcot monorail ):

That's good Rachel will be used to getting up before school starts, I'm going to have to start slowly waking up earlier and earlier, because these next four weeks will probably fly by!

I never noticed them until I read a TR, and I couldn't believe that I had been in that building so many times and have never seen them before! They're a cool touch

So do I! I think it's awesome how everyone always clap, it's really cool (:

Joining in! I read one of your TR's a couple years ago and really enjoyed it! Our trips overlapped a little bit this time so I'm having fun reading about this trip as well. I like that you are adding tips/tricks! Great idea! Can't wait for more!!

Don't Move a Muscle

July 6th, 2012

With over an hour to kill before lunch, we decided to head to Innoventions, because Joey wanted to do Sum of All Thrills.


The building we went into, wasn't the one with SoAT... oops. But it worked out fine, because Johnny was interested in the video games, so my dad stayed back with him and said they would meet us by SoAT.



The line was kind of long, and I wasn't in the mood for it, so I sat down across the walkway from the ride and updated my TR notes, which I had decided the first day would be easier to just type them up on my iTouch instead of writing them down in my usual TR journal. Mom and Joey were in the line a pretty long time, and when my dad and Johnny came back, they still hadn't even ridden yet.

We walked closer to the ride when we saw them getting ready for their ride, so we could watch. Joey had asked one of the CMs how to get the most intense ride, and she said to pick the snow mobile or something, I don't remember.
But their ride looked crazy!




When they were done, Johnny wanted to go to Club Cool to get a coke




It wasn't open yet, so we decided we'd come back later.
We took the opportunity to have a little photo shoot though




Still had time left before the countries opened, so, per Joey's request, we rode Mission: Space. The wait for orange was WAY too long, so we decided to go green, we didn't really mind. Orange hurts my head anyways



I was the Commander, I think... I'm not sure, I just remember being happy because I felt like my role was the person in charge LOL

Whenever we ride this ride, we like to do the opposite of what we're told. Like when the guy tells you "don't move a muscle" so that you don't fall over the cliff, we move like crazy. What rebels we are

Dad sat out on this ride, he doesn't like virtual/enclosed rides like this

On our way back to meet my dad, we saw these guys singing out in front of Test Track (which was closed, because they're doing all that new stuff to the queue and making it virtual and whatnot)

If you watched my trip video, some of their performance is in there!

By now, Club Cool was opened so we made our way back over there!


The one from Israel is my favorite, and my brother's like the one from Germany. I got Joey to try the Beverly, and he did, that's also in the trip video! He's tasted it before, we all know that's the one that tastes bad, but he went along and tasted it anyways haha

Now it was past 11 o'clock and the countries were open! We split up for lunch, but where would we go?

Up Next: Yeah, Get Off...

It's funny for the longest time I never even really knew what the Sum of All Thrills was about. I always thought it was like CyberSpace Mountain in DisneyQuest, but it looks much different. I'll definitely have to check it out now, though probably wouldn't go as intense as your brother did haha

to riding (and rebelling on) Mission: SPACE. And I love the reaction to Beverly your brother gave in the video though I think any reaction to that is funny haha. Still need to try it, maybe I'll be the first weirdo to like it lol

Can't wait to read more!

Great update!

My boys rode Sum of All Thrills for the first time on our trip and loved it!

Love Club Cool! The one from Israel is my favorite as well.

I've only ridden Sum of All Thrills once, and I was nervous so I didn't want to make it very intense. It turned out to be pretty eh so I just made funny faces, because the CMs have little monitors and can see your face while on the ride lol!

The Beverly isn't all that bad, it's just very bitter. I don't think it's gross, but it's not something I want to drink a glass of!

Thank you! The Israel one reminds me of Sprite and Sundrop/Mountain Dew combined, that's probably why it's my favorite!

Yeah, Get Off...

July 6th, 2012

It was finally time to grab some foreign lunch! I wanted Chinese, as I'm in LOVE with the fried rice they have at the Lotus Blossom Cafe. Johnny was feeling Mexican, so we split up. My dad and I went to China, while my mom stayed in Mexico with my brothers.

My dad and I both got the Shrimp Fried Rice with Egg Roll

It's what we always get, lol

Since I wasn't with them, I'm not totally sure what exactly they got to eat... and I can't really tell from the pictures oops

But looking at the menu, it looks like my mom got Tacos de Carne - smoked beef brisket tacos served on fresh handmade corn tortillas with Pico de Gallo, lime and corn tortilla chips


And I want to say Johnny got Empanadas de Queso - fresh corn masa (dough) filled with Chihuahua cheese topped with green sauce served with corn tortilla chips minus the green sauce


Joey wasn't hungry, so all he wanted was Churros con Cajeta - Churros with milk caramel

Interesting new design for the churros... last time we ate there they were just regular sticks!

After a yummy lunch, we met up halfway, in Norway!
We had all done everything we wanted to, so it was time to go back to the hotel for our afternoon rest.

I guess I found the Brazilian Tour Group interesting? Or irritating, either one


Guess we stopped here for something, probably a bathroom break





Off to the monorail! Finally!



We got on the monorail, it wasn't crowded so we were able to sit down! We were sitting there for about 10 minutes
This is our "Why are we still sitting here close the doors and take us home" face


Unfortunately, after 10-15 minutes of sitting on the monorail they came over the speaker and told us we'd have to get off because the monorail wasn't working and we'd have to take the bus to the Ticket and Transportation Center.

So we got off the monorail and walked towards the buses... and there's no bus to any of the monorail resorts at Epcot! So we had to get on the T&TC bus with everyone else- ended up standing again- and then once we got there we had to take the monorail full loop to the Contemporary.

It took about an hour to get back :/

Although, Johnny got some good shots while on the resort monorail!






Up Next: Poolside Fun!

Lunch looks yummy!

Sounds like a long trip back to the Contemporary with all the transportations issues.
