Great update!

How is it that, at Epcot, you always want to be somewhere that is on the complete other side of the park all the time? We are always going back and forth there.

My oldest would have gone on the Mexico ride 50 times a trip when she was younger...even before Donald. She just really liked the volcano. Luckily she's grown out of it.

I absolutely love Voices of Liberty! We had to miss them on our last trip because we'd always hit that portion of World Showcase right as our 3-year-old was getting cranky....and you don't mess with a cranky 3-year-old.

Morocco is one of my favorite pavillions to just wander in. Every time we've been there, it seems like nobody is back in the shops or walkways.

So, since I'm sure I missed out on all of the movie quotes, I'm going to say that you are keeping the theme of the lies going with a Disney geography-ish lie because Animal Kingdom is the largest park.

Is "my dogs were barking" a Planes, Trains, & Automobiles reference?

Another great chapter Captain! That sure is a big park to criss-cross a couple of times. Why the heck did they have to put that big lake in the middle?

And thanks for the shout-out!

Nice report

I certainly did not intend any offense...and I hope you can tell from the tone of the TR that it's all meant to be in good fun.

I hate to burst your bubble, but I don't think I've ever seen this line more than half a boat deep.

That's a great way to enjoy that ride. The videos of the characters are kind of lame, but it is a great way to get off your feet and relax. I just love the ambiance of the Mexican pavillion and the pyramid and volcano. Word is you can actually take drinks from Cava del Tequila on that ride. I didn't try it last time because DW was pregnant, but sounds like a good idea to me!

So if the drawbridge where they bring in the Illuminations barges was raised, does that mean you'd have swam for it?

Sorry, I've still got the mariachi band from It's a Small Mexico going on in my head. But it still isn't as bad as that song from It's a Small World. You know that one, don't you?

I still think the last lie went a little bit deeper and a tribute to Glenn's picture took place somewhere in Italy...

I'm not sure what is more scary here. The fact that you ran into a Brazilian Tour Group, or the fact that you took the time to note the name of the tour group and look up their website.

Either that or they were just trying to catch up to the rest of their group who was already waiting in the FP line.

We rode the ride in Mexico when we were there last week. It was Really fun until the last 45 minutes.

Yeah I finally got a lie. Not only am I the mother of 3 but I know where almost every bathroom is in the parks. Nice to know that knowledge has paid off.

I really enjoyed this chapter. The pictures were fabulous. Loved the World Showcase pictures and the photo pass picture of the family behind the ball.

Chip and Dale are my youngest favorite characters. The first time we took her she was 3 and would have nothing to do with the characters until Chip and Dale broke through her reluctance at Chef Mickeys. We always have the most fun visiting with them.

I have to admit I have no idea on the lie right now. I'll have to think on it for a bit.

No offense taken. I was once part of a big teenage group visiting Disney myself. It is a rite of passage in Brazil. Trust me when I tell you most of us are completely oblivious to the disturbance we cause.

I live in Canada now and my husband always jokes that whenever I feel homesick all he really needs to do is bring me to Disney. Whereelse outside Brazil can we bump into obnoxious Brazilians at every corner?

Anyways, still enjoying your trip report. Cannot wait to read more.

What is it with kids and fountains?

Do you also have a State Drunk in this election?

It's always a roll of the dice when you hand off the camera to somebody else. Sometimes you get a great shot. Sometimes you get concrete. As long as they don't walk off with the camera, we're doing ok.
