We exited the park at 12:10, 10 minutes past monorail closing. One of those small resort launches filled with people waiting ahead of us so we had to wait for the next boat. Just at that time captains were switching over for breaks and a bigger boat was being brought onto the route because of extra volume post monorail closing. This seemed to take a long time and we didn't get back to the room until about 11:50. I think we got to the dock at exactly the wrong time...earlier and we would have gotten on the previous boat, later the bigger boats already running.

We even fell.asleep on the boat ride back! Crashed when we got back to the room and slept soundly until the alarm we off at 7:20. We intended to get to rope drop at epcot but there were a series of delays. Surprisingly my family wanted food so we went to captain cook's and made breakfast out of snacks while i went to boutiki to snap some photos of the beautiful poly merchandise:






I think these are small picture frames:




DD says she needs a few of these for her dorm room but im certain...well, pretty sure...um i hope she's joking!


We love these glasses and are so glad they brought them back:



The tshirt and the Hawaiian look good together:

The boat ride itself was about 18 minutes. We left our room in samoa at 8:01 and were at fort wilderness before 9 and that was with waiting and transfer time. I would allow 45 minutes from mk because you may have to wait on the dock.

Eeyore is pretty exhausted actually. We have been pushing him a little too hard. He came to the pool yesterday afternoon. He watched us go down the slide a few times. There wasn't much sun to bask in so we swimmers got a bit chilly. We changed and brought him over to the tambu for some cocktails! He liked the view of the castle from the tam u and he loved the lapu lapu. Major spork action!

Thanks for reading! We love the barnstormer but sadly they took out what we thought was the best part, flying through the barn with the clucking chickens. It is still fun though and the theming in the area is really much better than it was! It was the first roller coaster my DS enjoyed. He used to have a fear of rides but now he rides everything!

I've been working, but I have had a chance to catch up! LOVELY view!!!

Thank you SO much for your live TR!!! We are coming in late Thursday night, so I will look for you when I go visit Dani on Friday
Great choice on vn. I don't imagine you will be disappointed.

Marie will do great! I kept telling myself this is disney they wont hurt me! And they tell you how to signal them to pull you down if you want them to.

As for Dani maybe you can convince her to come to tambu on friday evening. DH and i plan on going for a drink anyway. We would love to meet you both. I am a bit shy but you don't have to worry about what to say...DH does a lot of talking!

Sorry to confuse you! Theres a big area outside the turnstiles from where you can watch the whole show. We just wanted to be inside so we wouldn't have to deal with the additional crowds after.

We had heard the same great things so perhaps our expectations were too high. See i didn't follow my own advice about expectations! The toffee cake was good but unanimously a third and last place finisher in the dessert contest of the meal.

Eeyore didn't NOT like the cake. There was no fault in the ooey or the gooey or the toffee. He just enjoyed the other desserts better. Im looking forward to sharing more about that.

So we finally got moving and left the gch at 8:31. We made it to monorail platform by 8:38...no monorail until 8:46. By the time we reached the security check which was packed it was 8:58. Nothing we could do about it. We were tired and we missed rope drop! DS got fast passes for soarin which were already 10:45-11:45 and bh the time we reached soarin at 9:13 the standby line was already 35 minutes.

We decided to head over in Innoventions east and do sum of all thrills, which is a lot of fun. We ran into MCDomzal and fightinillini229 and the DH and DD of MCDomzal. They were way ahead of us! We werent good rope droppers today! We toured the "green" house in there and it was a bit informative but mostly felt like a commercial. Then we rode soarin and wanted to do captain eo before lunch. So we stood through the pre show and when it was over there was an announcement that the show was cancelled. Grrrrr..

So with that we headed toward world showcase and where our lunch would be at:

That is so me too! There are some DIS'ers that are talking about meeting up, I want to. But I have social anxiety through the roof, but I'm hoping some Disney magic works for me!

Okay my Poly question, and please please don't bother if it's too out of your way, but I was just curious if you could take a picture of the water play area they say is good for small children that is near the Volcano pool. But seriously, only if you get a chance. For some reason I haven't been able to find any pictures of that and my DD3.5 is curious.
