DUDE Where's the CAR?????

Okay guys now where was I ?? Oh yes MK in the morning on the 5th of July. A morning full of rides, being put in jail and then deciding to leave the car at the TTC with the hope of going back and picking it up afterward.

Pictures show a bus trip back to the Yacht and Beach at 1:55pm. Now what follows was probably more pool time and then a shower. No pictures

Wandering into EPCOT through the back gate my destination was…


Any guesses????









A close up shot- not that it may help.




A sign that may help.













Hmmmm.. not to torture anyone, so I will let the cat out of the bag…..

La Hacienda.


Now for the horrible part.

I have a picture of my drink..



But nothing else but





And well










I do remember that what was eaten was wonderful and except for the fact that they stopped taking Tables in Wonderland recently I would not hesitate to recommend it.

After dinner there was some more wandering.





Apparently a cut through Mousegears.



I guess this would be the first time I actually laid eyes on this wonderful conversation piece.



Wandering over towards Mission Space



in a sea of speckled rocks,



Another little beauty.



While an evening at EPCOT would be wonderful for a last evening, it was not to be.
Why??


The car silly…. Despite the impending doom of potentially having my car towed or even just leaving it at the TTC overnight, the plan was to leave MK and return later that night. I will admit to obsessing a bit to actually remember to get the car but overall it was an easy thing to do.

I would love to tell a tale of panic and confusion but upon leaving and knowing that La Hacienda was in the plans, Wishes won out as the last night fireworks. HAving a monorail ride instead of a bus ride made it an easy choice too.

The Last night.

So – Out the front entrance for the last time. Aboard the monorail.

Passing here.



Trying again at construction photos.





The Avengers Monorail.


The castle at dusk.



How can you not get the balloon guy.



Parade time.















I really need a couple of snow days to go through ALL my Disney pictures so I can sort them into categories. You know like Castle, trash can, bathroom etc…



Back when pictures were still projected on the castle.









Another Disney Day has come to an end. Back out the front gate this time to the car, which was conveniently close now and through any traffic to park back at the beach club.

The sad part of packing up and knowing you only have 1 more night is upon me.
At some point I look through my pictures and realize,

What a horrible trip!!!!

More on that next.

I think you are the only one whose thread I follow that I was not behind on from being sick, since you just updated.

And a fun update too. I'm glad you said where you were eating because I would have never guessed since I don't eat Mexican. But let me just say that your drink looks absolutely yummy. What is it?

Grreat Hidden Mickey you caught.

We have yet to see the Main Street Electrical Parade since it came back...we must rectify that.

Yes - See it at least once. It has been back long enough to go away again..... but then again we really have no new "promotion" for this year do we. I guess except for Limited Time Magic.

I am pretty much enjoying all of the pictures from your horrible trip, so thanks for suffering through it.

That's a great Hidden Mickey.

The Avengers monorail is about to be unwrapped, isn't it? I think I read that in the past week or so.

We need to interview the balloon guy. He's sort of famous around here.

So glad you got your car! I was afraid you had left it and Disney had taken it for a while!

Great pictures of the castle. I love the parade. We missed it this last trip. Too tired to make it back to MK that night for it.

Oh, hate that your horrible trip is coming to an end! I have enjoyed it!

I am afraid you are all the ones that had to suffer through the slipshod reporting here.

During a hot, busy time of year I managed to relax and have a wonderful trip. Did not feel the need to go all commando an actually USED the pool at the resort and multiple times at that.
That HM was hard to find. Spent quite a bit of time looking at the ground for it.
I had some help with the general location but that stone path is pretty long.

I am sure some people must have thought I was nuttier than I am watching me pace back and forth looking down saying here Mickey, Mickey, Mickey where are you????

You will have to have Parker find that one next time

I will admit reminding myself a few times not to forget it was there but yup it was pretty easy and drama free.

It was a pretty good trip. Really relaxing, and probably the most relaxing one I had.

Every trip must have a last night but I was lucky to have other trips in the works. That always helps.

I bet even the Disney impound lot looks nice.

How did this get missed - So sorry!!!!

Oh yes I had to remind myself a few times to make sure I got the car but yes this time nothing really horrible happened.

I try to catch the parade but at this point, if I just catch a glimpse I am okay. I don't go out of my way anymore to see it.


The most horrible trip is coming to an end but there were more maybe not ( or maybe more ) horrible trips ahead.

That's interesting that La Hacienda isn't on TiW anymore. I wonder how they decide that? I think all of the Table Service restaurants should be on it.

What? They're not projecting pictures on the castle anymore?
