Great report so far!
You guys remind me of DH and myself, plus we just bought a Duffy bear because is so stinkin' cute. We were on the fence about him the entire trip, but we finally caved and bought him--he is just so cuddly!

For not getting to Epcot at Rope Drop, you guys are accomplished a lot so far! Also, I like the idea of splitting meals...This is something I think I want to try next time because we are always so full on the dining plan.

Can't wait for more!

Glad you like Duffy too! He is probably the softest/cutest thing they could have come up with. We weren't sure how splitting meals would go either until our last trip when we weren't on the dining plan and did so to save some money. Once we realized how easy it was, we figured it would translate well to help us make the most of our credits!

Glad to be of service Tracy is indeed quite the catch if I may say so myself haha.

Thanks! Glad you're enjoying it. The cotton candy at Casey's was delicious. I'm pretty sure it was watermelon flavored.

Love your trip report!! We also enjoyed the extra time at Epcot after the fireworks. We got on Soarin with no wait and also hit Character Spot with maybe 3 families in front of us.

Thanks for reading! I think this hour was the best hidden gem in Epcot on our trip. I've heard that more people have figured it out recently though so the Soarin' waits are bad during that time now...

Thanks! The credit for that Mickey goes entirely to Tracy. She spotted it randomly on our last trip and I never would have noticed it otherwise.
