Did I miss you saying what that drink was that you got at the margarita stand? It was beautiful! And I bet, delicious.

I can understand how it might be hard to make a rope drop after a late night, even if you are just 5 MINUTES AWAY!!!
This trip was a trip of luck and lots of good luck at that.

I was so involved with IllumiNations that I got one shot off.

The Fiesta Margarita- All three of the frozen Margaritas, lime, strawberry, and mango. If you can avoid the dreaded brain freeze it is delicious.

Yup 5 minutes away and still did not make it.

So far still not horrible...

I love that place.

Nope not horrible...... but somehow I still uttered those words.

Used to think I had a thing for lighter hair and blue eyes. I think the dark hair is winning me over. Better track record.

The private entrance ROCKS.

I wasn't really sleeping in or just having a hard time getting a move on. I was just so happy and relaxed I was in chill mode. Yup BCV did that to me.

I get a little closer to those roses in a bit.

I am going to be borrowing that secret entrance for a few days in March thanks to Marc and Anita, and I am pretty doggone excited about that.

It was raining, and this was closed when we went by there, so the girls never got to enjoy it.


You will LOVE that short stroll to EPCOT. I know you will have many nice early morning walks around. So much to see.

I always feel so welcome but this trip in particular I felt like I was HOME.

Sorry the girls never got time to play.

Score on the room location! It looks like I will be your neighbor for at least a few days in Oct. Can't wait!!

I may have to try SE in another language too.

I have the links to help you get caught up.

I am even having a hard time keeping up. This is supposed to be my slow season.


Yes You will be my neighbor for a couple of days.


YAY for SE in another language. This may start a trend.

A couple of tequila shots or margaritas then SE in new languages. Sounds like a great time.

That area was up for the summer. Usually something like that is up during Food and Wine and Flower and Garden.

So far your horrible trip seems pretty great!! (BTW, very impressive about the rope drop time. We've never made it yet!)

559 - I will make the same request again and maybe this time I will actually use the view to watch IllumiNations.

This Horrible trip was horrible for such a different reason.

I may need to let that cat out of the bag soon.

The funny thing about Splash Mountain was when we entered the door out of the ride we were only about 10 feet off the ground! We had to go down two short sections of steps to reach the ground!

I can be across property and use transportation and make it half hour before rope drop and yet be a 5 minute walk and miss it?

The walk through the garden is so nice.

You need to at least get over there to wander around. Such a neat resort.

I guess that is a good thing. I probably should not say it but I am glad I have not had an evac off any ride. Watch now I jinxed myself.

Have you spoken with your tumble monkey to see what the latest is with Festival of the Lion King? Is it just changing locations, or is it ***GASP*** going away forever!

Although with the dispute between James Cameron and the Imagineers, Avatarland may not happen, which will (hopefully!) save the Tumble Monkey's!

Woo hoo, birds! I was right (it doesn't take much to make me happy).

I always wonder to myself who's winning in that picture of the pirate skeletons playing chess......

We're eating at the Plaza in November. I honestly have not eaten there since I was very young. I'm kind of excited.

Ooohhh, cinnamon bun the size of your head. Those are always a great choice for a snack.

I love the new theming in that area, I can't wait to see it. You always have enough time to take pictures!

That's weird that the CM at the BC looked at you funny when you said you didn't get the room number in the text. Like you were making it up or something.

I love getting caught up in the fireworks and not taking too many pictures. If I take pictures, then I get all irritated when they don't turn out and then take more and more.

Hahaha, the creepy Norway kid. You're absolutely right.

When you said Drunk, I was like "I wasn't there, was I?!"

I love listening to SE in another language!!!!!!

You can't ride Soarin' and NOT take a picture of Puddy. He's so awesome.
