I had the Deluxe 1/3-Pound Angus Cheeseburger - topped with bacon, onion rings, and barbeque sauce served with french fries


IT WAS SO GOOD. Probably one of my favorite meals of the whole trip! It was all great, the bacon, the burger, the ONION RINGS, and the sauce- sooooooooooooo yummy

Joey had a Hamburger (from the Kid's menu, it looks like)


Johnny had a Kid's Turkey Sandwich


Dad had a 1/3-Pound Cheeseburger with fries


And my mom had the Chilled Chicken Wrap


After a yummy dinner, the boys were dying to go to the shooting arcade

I joined in too, and I didn't do as bad as I thought I would. But when I was putting the gun down I did somehow manage to drop it on my finger and that thing is heavy so it hurt!

By now the boys and I had done everything we needed to do, and my parents didn't have anything they absolutely wanted to do, so we went back to the room.

On the way home we had another monorail incident. When the monorail came up about three or four doors didn't open up, including ours. And the CM's wouldn't let us go to the last few monorail cars because they were marked off for some reason too. So a whole bunch of us had to squeeze into the remaining few cars at the front of the monorail. Luckily we were the first stop, so we got out of there quickly and relaxed for the rest of the night!

Sounds like the parent-free trek over to MK went ok--except for your brothers not cooperating on the Haunted Mansion line!

Can't believe you'd never eaten at Pecos Bills! I like the fixings bar-always get the grilled onions and mushrooms to add to my cheeseburger.

Hope you have a fabulous first day of school tomorrow!

I know, I loved Pecos Bills though! Can't wait to eat there again!

Thank you, I had a pretty great day at school yesterday

The Lunch To End All Lunches

July 8th

Today was one of our well deserved sleep in days!
Dad went to church about 15 minutes away, and when he came back it was time for Downtown Disney!



It's a long bus ride to DTD, so we decided to drive there instead- which was a lot faster!

When we got there we headed straight for our favorite place to eat, probably in the top 3 of our favorite places to eat in Disney list, Earl of Sandwich!


Joey and I went to get a table outside (since the inside was packed!) and wait for our sandwiches

I had the Italian - salami, capicola, roasted ham, mortadella, mozzarella cheese, roma tomato and Zesty Italian dressing


I always get this (minus the tomatoes) and it's the best sandwich I've ever had!

I think this was my Mom's: Best BLT - smoked bacon, lettuce, Roma tomatoes and seasoned mayonnaise



Joey got the Pizza Sandwich


My dad got (I THINK) The Earl's Club - roast turkey, smoked bacon, Swiss cheese, lettuce and roma tomato and sandwich sauce


Johnny got the Italian, like me, but he didn't get the sauce (which is the best part )


yuuuum




After lunch, the boys didn't want to stay and go shopping, so they took the car home and my mom and I would catch the bus back later.
First, we had some shopping to do


We went into Once Upon a Time where I got

a cute stuffed circular Pooh for myself and a baby dumbo keychain for one of my friends, who had gotten me a Cinderella pin when she went to Disney a couple of months before

Next stop was World of Disney

More stuffed animals! My mom got the Donald and Simba for her friend's kids and I got the Nemo (which talks!) for my friend's birthday

And for the deal they had going on this trip, we got the bag!


We stopped in the Christmas store

I love Christmas stores, especially Disney Christmas stores

That was all the shopping for today, so it was time to go to the bus stop


We had the bus stop all to ourselves!

It took an hour to get back
We waited for the bus for about 10 minutes, then we had to stop at the other DTD bus stops, and then we had to stop at Typhoon Lagoon before we were finally back at the Contemporary!
The people that sat next to my mom and I on the bus were asking how to get to Epcot from where we were going. She told them to get off at the Contemporary, take the monorail to the next stop, then get on the monorail at the T&TC to Epcot. Now that I think about it, that was a pretty smart idea of them... to park at Downtown Disney so they wouldn't have to pay, and then just take Disney transportation to a park

Up Next: Fireworks from the Beach

Fireworks from the Beach

July 8th

When my mom and I got back to the Contemporary, we all changed into our bathing suits and went to the pool


We spent the afternoon at the pool and relaxing
I wanted to go to MK that night and stay until it closed at 2 am, but we would be waking up at 6:30 the next morning to go to AK and then staying out until 1 am at DHS.
So this day ended up being out non-park, relaxing day. We usually have one of those about half way through our summer trips

After an afternoon at the pool, we all wanted to have dinner at the Contempo Cafe since we had loved it so much the first time!
It was a late dinner at 8:30




I had Pasta with Marinara Sauce

I don't really like pasta, but this was yummy!

Looks like my mom got Marinated Beef Flatbread - with oven roasted tomatoes, garlic, onions, arugula, and goat cheese


My dad got what looks like a turkey sandwich


Joey didn't get anything, I don't think

Johnny got a Cheese Flatbread


The mickey on the chairs


After dinner we hopped on the monorail to the Polynesian, to watch the fireworks on the beach!




Prime location





Johnny, Dad, and I had gotten us spots for the fireworks while my mom and Joey went to get some Dole Whips!



We played in the sand while waiting


What is he doing?

About time!






The finale is my favorite part (:


Watching the fireworks on the beach at the Poly is the best spot, the play the music on the beach so you can hear, you can see the whole show with no buildings or people in the way, and you don't have to have your neck craned different ways to see the fireworks!

After the show we hopped back on the monorail and took it around to the Contemporary, we needed to get to bed because tomorrow we'd be back to the normal early morning routine!

Up Next: Joey's First Encounter With the Yeti!

Hi Sarah! Great report so far. Subbing.

I think the ST on the GAC card stands for Studios.

Hey, thanks!

That would make sense if it stood for Studios, thanks for solving the mystery!
