Thanks for the quick answer!!! The stick does seem kind of silly, I mean, yes the treats can be a teeny bit sticky, but who cares?? I love the rice crispy treats, we always end up bringing a few home! DF always is like "I don't usually like these, but the ones from Disney are the best!!" So yes, your "Mickey-shaped" theory is spot-on!

ps I do not know if you listen to John Boy and Billy Big show but they have a skit called 'married man' and now i have that tune running thru my head replaced with the words 'scooter mom'
Now I have that tune in my head. I always got a kick out of married man.
It is the Spriderman cartoon theme song.


Finally made it over here!!!

So sorry to hear about your ankle. Glad you got a scooter to help out and even though it was not there the first night, I am glad it was there in the morning. Heard good thing about Apple scooter.

So true. They taste the same, really, no matter what shape they are

LOL. It isn't anything big. It was just a good place to stop in the story.

Day 2 – Part 3

After lunch - We took a few more shots inside

























It was about noon and the geyser there goes off every hour so we went out to see it.











DH’s football game was starting so we headed back to the room to watch it.

During halftime, DH took DD to the pool so she could ride the slide





She gave it a thumbs up.

We didn't get to see it last time we stayed there, so we sat and waited on it this time. She LOVED that slide DH has to drag her away from it every time they went down to the pool.

Day 2 – Part 4

They came back from the pool and DH watched the rest of the game. Our team won. Something like 58-10 or some such. And even though it was glaringly evident that we had won the game, DH had to watch until the very last seconds ticked off the clock. Sigh.

It was about four o’clock at this time and the kids were wanting to do something. So we went to Downtown Disney.

Some resort photos as we were on our way to the car.







We found a decent parking spot and we entered at the T-Rex restaurant. DS took photos.













We headed across the bridge to check out the Vinylmation store.



But I didn’t see anything I had to have, to we went back towards the Market Place. At this time I notice my scooter is at half power. The paper work said the scooter was supposed to be good for 15 miles and at this point I was sure we hadn’t even gone two miles. So while DH and the kids checked out the
Lego store, I called the scooter company.



They said something must be wrong with the battery and that they would bring me a new one right away. And they DID !! They got there in 15 minutes and said that yes, that battery had gone bad. The new one they gave me worked sooooo much better and I was very happy with it. I was glad we had gotten that resolved before we had gone to a park because it would have really stunk to have gotten stuck with a dead battery in the park.

DD and I hit World of Disney







and she got a Rapunzel outfit for her American Girl Doll



DS got a Lego set at the Lego store.


Then we headed over to Once Upon a Toy



I loved this Life spinner on the ceiling.



DD got a Zero plush from the Nightmare Before Christmas movie

That's great how quickly the scooter company resolved the battery issue! Hopefully you didn't have any problems with it after that!

I never noticed the ceiling in Once Upon a Toy! How cute!

Day 2 – Part 5

After some shopping, we headed over to Wolfgang Puck Express to get some dinner.



DD got some

Macaroni and Cheese $7



Which she didn’t really like. But I thought it tasted good. But …. Whatever.

DS got the old standby



Nothing new there. DH ate his “green things”

DH and I got our old standby that we always get here

Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf - mashed potatoes, port wine sauce and crispy onion rings $15



We always split this because it is so much food.

For dessert, DD got a brownie, DS got a cookie and DH and I split the cheesecake.



This is pretty much a repeat of the last several meals we have gotten here. DD changed it up this time and got macaroni though. We really love the food here. And will definitely go back again and MAYBE try something new. But I always say, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” So we may just stick with what works well for us.

After dinner, the kids wanted to check out Goofy’s Candy Company





DD got some cotton candy for a snack credit



That was only half, she had already eaten some of it.

DS got a slushy for a snack credit, but I didn’t get a photo.

After that, we went to Basin.



DD loves the bath bombs there and so do I. So we got some.



This tube is $19.99 for as many as you can fit in. We were able to squeeze in seven.

They also had a little tube where you could put these little bath marbles in for $6.99.



And DD snuck this soap in there and I just looked at the package and that dang thing cost $7.



She wanted it because it had paw prints on it. (Eyeroll).

We took few more photos on our way out









And then we headed back to the resort. For an ice bag



DH took DD down to the pool again while DS got to work on his Lego set.
I dipped into my emergency supply of vikes since my ankle was hugely swollen and hurting pretty bad. DH looked at it doubtfully and asked if I was going to make it through this trip. I said we would stay on top of icing it and practice some good pain management and I would get through it.

We watched football and went to sleep.
