Finally getting some DIS time after a crazy week and a half at home. Feels good to get back to normal.

Congratulations to the soccer team!

So did you miss your fast pass time? How is that working now that they don't allow "late" fast pass returns?

I need a three-day weekend every week just so I can stay on top of the DIS boards.

Congrats to the soccer team!

The Seeds tour looks like a blast -- the photo opportunities alone would make it worth it to me!

Can't believe how crowded DHS was that night! Summer and tour groups -- gotta love it!

Yay team!

That was quite a late crowd!!! That is actually why we started avoiding EMH parks, especially the late hours. Of course, we don't make it much past 10 anyway

I LOVE the RnR!! So jealous of your getting to ride it!

This is on Brooklynn's must-do list these days, and usually more than once. Something about it fascinates her, which I find interesting, since she just turned 6.
Glad you're getting back to Dis-town. Even happier that Jill is okay.
Something about GMR fasinates me...lol

Thank you. I'll have to look at your info (when I am not in the response box) to see where you are from. Dh has been with the postal service for about twelve years. I imagine your dh stresses over the future of his job too.

We didn't bother to try. We missed the time, but they probably would have let us go. I heard/ spoke to others and with the heavy tour groups, the CM's were more understanding about the FP times. I think it is a case by case basis.

Wouldn't it be nice to work that into the plan - a day just for Dis boards? The tour was cheap and informative! I have to remember to go leave great feedback for our tour gal!

This trip had the largest late night crowds of any trip we've been on. It's hard to adjust to the early hours when we travel in the winter months.

I don't make it much past 9 at home, but I am high on Pixie Dust in Disney.

I enjoy RnR even though I don't really like rollercoasters.

We headed back for our afternoon break.

Swam, did wash, and read - I wish I could do those things right now! (Okay, so I do have wash in the machine...)

Thunder moved in, pool cleared. It was time to head up for showers anyway...
We arrived at Epcot at 5:16 (my notes are so exact...)

Model #1


Model #2



Club Cool stop (My girls are only allowed Sprite when we eat out, so we made this pitstop often...)

This is the two of them proving that Beverly is good...I don't think they are convincing!





New friends in the park



We headed to Canada...unfortunately, it was the Epcot one without my friend Queen, but I certainly thought of her!







It was in Canada, that Hannah fell hard for Duffy...oops, I mean Stuffy!

Oddly, Stuffy doesn't make any appearance in the pictures in Canada. Emma fell in love with a rock. She named it Smooth Canada Representer (nickname -Smooth Canadian.)

We then spent some time around the world

England



France (no pictures??)

Morocco gallery









I don't know which term this best represents: Irony...not quite...it is a trope that will come to me. This left me unsettled, maybe angry...




On to more enjoyable events: Dinner via Napoli










The girls picked up their dessert:American dreams and we headed to allow Stuffy and Smooth Canadian a view of Illuminations.



Now, we had to use the restroom, so we ended up watching from the Odyssey Center. Not ideal, but not crowded, and we had walls to sit on!
