Interesting location............

I had an ADR at the Plaza. No pepper girl and much less noise this time.

And Marv I think I found your HM at the Plaza.



That would be her!!! Great Job finding it!!!

It was hot and about 2:00 or so and I was hot. I needed something sweet for later so I ducked in here to get a goodie.


Oh yes, a good dose of sugar is the perfect thing for a hot day!! Just who would do that anyway??? Oh wait.............

Head toward the train station that voice, you know the one that pops in your head to remind you that you forgot something? Yeah that one. Dumbo FP. CRAP. Hot and a bit tired but not to miss out, the train, the train. Yes the train was an option but looking at the FP and the newly enforced FP windows I was nervous. I did not want to make it all the way over there to be denied.
That would be Horrible.

Uh Oh........Could this finally be something to contribute to the title???

Yup even time for this.


Well, of course!!!!


There is that voice again- Hurry up, take those later.

Seems like that voice is following you around the park!!!


Sadly I never made it IN that bathroom.

Guess you hadn't eaten any of that cinnamon roll yet................

Horrible I know.
I made it up to CM and explained I was at lunch and….

Continued Next Post....
Oh, the drama...............

The SO NOT HORRIBLE EVENING


Got the car back to the Beach club and after the car was parked I needed to make my way to the front desk to get the room number.

Past Ariel



Past the mat.



I stop at the front desk and tell the CM I got a text but no room number. He gives me a look. I pull out the phone to show him. Can’t remember if I actually had to show him ID again but he very reluctantly wrote the room number down on a piece of paper. Not sure why written down vs. telling me, but I know if he told me I probably would have forgotten by the time I got up there.

I call for LS and document the room while I wait. They were lightning fast

















The View





What’s that ?



World Showcase that’s what. All three requests were met . Not Horrible. Seeing a theme here?


It was about 4:15.

Time for a shower and a quick nap. I knew I needed to get out of the heat and rest. Way too hot to go commando this time.

I head back out around 8:15pm. Plenty of time to stop and get some fish and chips for dinner and find a spot on the viewing area by the bridge connecting France with the UK



Finally getting dark.





Yup that the only picture I took. HORRIBLE…

I really got caught up in IllumiNations. I love fireworks and the music ( the globe meh) so when it was over I just stood there and took in all the World Showcase had to offer. Felt like I was standing there just a few minutes but when I finally looked around the crowd had emptied out.

What to do, What to do?????

It was EPCOT EMH so of course I was up for staying and walking around.

Continued Next Post.

Not having to wait for a bus during what is called “shuttle time” and buses are not frequent was NOT horrible.
It was here I discovered a text from Disney
Your resort room is ready! Stop by the front desk for your room number. Have a magical day!
for Room is Ready texts!!!

DRUNK STORY and Japanese SE


Stopping into the American Adventure ( the line was too long for a slushie) to look for HM.


Can you spot it???










Okay the close up.



I found a wonderful dress in the gift shop. ( really need to find a picture of it ) It needed to be mine. While checking out I chatted up the CM.
Talked about EMH and it being a Sunday. The CM said every once in awhile EMH is on Sunday at EPCOT. She had to warn her boss at her “day” job she might be a bit sleepy in the morning.

With my dress in my bag, I ventured forward.

The never really fully finished gondola ride in Italy




A wonderful view.



Saying hello to the burro.



The train village in Germany.



The bridge up



The creepy Norway kid.



Rocking the blonde braids.






DRUNK STORY


It is now about 10:30- the margarita stand in Mexico is open and a margarita is calling my name since I never did get a slushie in France.
There appears to be a crowd at the kiosk


Upon closer inspection…



I see multiple shots. Then I realize all these guys are speaking either Spanish or Portuguese and they were all doing shots.



So in essence they were not moving and blocking the path to boot.
I finally got one of the CMs behind the counter to get me a drink and I paid him and had to exit the wrong way. At least they were happy drunks. On the way out I almost bumped into some confused people while I walking out the wrong way. I gave them the heads up and continued on my merry way.


My reward!!!



Walked up toward the front and posed for a PP shot. The poor girl could not get my flash to trigger.

A few really dark shots and she tells me the flash is not going off. Yup I can see that.

I try



Yup it works. She tries again- nothing. I give up and keep walking. No Picture - Horrible???


Walk onto SE. For some reason I thought it be funny to push another language. I also thought only the end would be in the language.




WRONG.




I listened to the WHOLE SE in JAPANESE. I was laughing the whole time at my silliness.

The classic photo



I thought the wording for TT was odd





The wonderful fountain.





Night shots of WS









And with that I wander back out the back gate up the hill through the gate and back to my room in no time.

A WONDERFUL not horrible day.


Goal for Monday – Rope drop at EPCOT. Should be easy right?

I have heard short waits most of the time. I still need to see the "waiting area"

Can't wait until it is all done.

Ooh what a beautiful room with a beautiful view! I think being able to see WS from my room would make my life complete.
I'm laughing just thinking of SE in Japanese.
Great end to the day, sounds like such a nice relaxing time!

I'm loving your dumbo shots...I got several that are very similar. Great minds think alike!

I am so excited to see the Beach Club room too. I am under 2 months now till my trip and I am getting beyond excited for all the new things we wil lbe trying this time around.

Th icing on the cake would be if we get some sneak previews of Fantasyland.

I saw that when I posted it ( I write ahead in word) and thought about changing it but I knew SOMEONE would jump on that.

I may or may not have gone THAT commando.

It is actually fun to hear but if you don't know the language and son't know the "script" you can be a little lost I guess. It was fun to do.

Yay for next month.
