That was a nice little extra…..

Gather ‘round the fire…

























Waiting for the dust to clear somewhat and then making my way out. I had to join this for a bit.



Before “swimming” upstream to get the back door.


Another "horrible " day that was anything but.

How great for a DIS meet...well, two actually.


And exciting that you got bonus fireworks to boot!

Great pictures (haven't seen Illimunations in at least six or seven years).

Drenched at the 11th hour. SO close and yet so far. Isn't that always the case? All you can do is laugh. I like that fast pass pillow and have thought about getting one, but then think I need 2, one for each side of the couch and then talk myself out of it.

I like that Guest Services, I've been in there a couple of times and those wall prints are fun.

Double prizes on the fireworks! You have to love that. Lovely sunset pictures.

Beautiful sunset and firework pictures! I remember that day quite well!

We were in World Showcase as well -- how did we not see each other?

Sorry I missed this update last night when I could see pictures. Bummer! But from everyone's comments its sounds like you have some great ones. And it sounds like a super fun afternoon/evening. DISmeets always brighten the day.

I know exactly how you felt about the last minute indecision. I was like that on my last night in Disney World. Cynthia left late afternoon and I was left with much indecision about how to spend my final evening. But it all worked out and it ended up being one of my favorite evenings of the trip!

What a really nice afternoon and evening! I'm so glad the rain cleared out so you could have a wonderful meet by the pool. The gorgeous night sky at Epcot does not show hints of the horrible storm earlier.

That is so great that you had a little bonus fireworks show! Great positioning!

DIS meets are fun After getting the CD ( for the Tapestry of Dreams music ) the score really grew on me.

As soon as I got out in the open with nowhere to hide the skies opened again.

I know for a fact I will be buying much less with a 10% discount now.....

That Guest Services is a nice one and not bad at all when waiting out a downpour.

After the downpour the leat Mother Nature could do was give us a nice sunset.

I just read all about it.

Well we could have been within feet of each other and not known it. It was pretty busy that night.

More planned time- promise!!!

Hope you were able to go back. Didn't get any great pictures but the 4th of July with the AA all lit up in Red, white and Blue was neat. Also being able to see the DHS and the EPCOT fireworks was a nice little bonus.

Crazy to think I was still sitting on the fence as to what to do. This was really a go with the flow trip...

Those Florida storms usually get out of the way quick.

Loved having some time toime to catch up with Anita and Caren ( Marc, Baylor and Brooklynn too)

Right by the bridge by China. Almost a triple bonus as I caught a glimpse of MK too.

It was the least Mother Nature could do after the soaking I got earlier was to provide a beautiful sunset.

DIS meets are the best!!!!

I know I didn't cross or duck under anything to get there but I will try to find it again and check.

I never did write the CM's name down but after I got to talking to her, she has a brother in the FD and thought she new your last name.

I actually did utter what a horrible trip but I have yet to explain how that happened or why.
