You are one brave woman to go on Tower of Terror by yourself. I have my arm wrapped around John the entire time.

I have never seen most of those hats that you and Mark modeled. Wonder if they are new?

We could very well have crossed paths and not even known it.
Yes! So fun!!
I'll be following along to see if we were ever in the same area! And it looks like we'll be there again the same time in December!

Yay for Tower of Terror...and RnRC, even though you didn't ride it! 2 of my favorites!

Haha, I love all of the hat pictures...soon Disney is going to run out of hats for you guys to take pictures in!

How nice that you got to meet a DIS'er who works in Disney! Ahhh, that's my dream someday, just packing up and moving to Disney!

Let me know your dates and we can try to meet up maybe at a different pak if you have limited time at the studios

Hmmmm........first I was aware not agreeing with you was an option..............

Yes, you've learned something following my TR's.

Somehow, some way, you and I need to find a chance to do this together! I think I finally found someone I can beat..............

And here I thought you wanted to meet me because of my charming personality.

Nice job of getting that big leeeaaaaan in there by Mark, but Rosie and I are gonna have to give you some Pole Dancing lessons Ms. Kat!!!

I didn't hear Rosie complain about my pole dancing.

I love watching the pre-show here. For some reason those little confused robots crack me up trying to figure out how to clean the windshield.

They are funny, aren't they?

Mark-2 D-2???

Now that made me spit out my Starbucks all over my comptuer screen.

Great news that they listened and did something about your bad experience!

I was just happy they responded.

Love the turkey leg rice krispy treats!!! Need to try one of those.......

I don't like Rice Krispie treats, but those were so darn cute.

Great pose...............

I can't believe they don't have Mrs. Incredible appearing with Mr. Incredible anymore. She's a real hottie!!! The one time we got pictures with them I enjoyed flirting with Mrs. Incredible and getting Mr. I riled up........

Actually, we had just missed Mrs. Incredible. They cut off the line at us and said she might or might not come out with the guys. She didn't come out.

The EYES have it...........

Yes, and they are ALWAYS watching.

Love 50s Prime Time. Sorry you had a bad experience with the food, but every time we have been there the food was fantastic. I guess being from the south I appreciate the fried chicken and the greens more. You would probably say the same thing about that delicacy called grits..........

Ummm...NO! That would be my husband...he loves his grits, but not me.

The fried chicken always reminds me of how my mom made it when I was a boy growing up, and when I have had it, it is much better than KFC and Popeye's, and I am a big Popeye's fan!!!

The fried chicken was okay...just not anything special in my opinion.

The meatloaf is the one thing I haven't tried from the sampler, and since the Pot Roast is one of my favorites there and Mark didn't think it had much taste, I am guessing you guys just hit it on a bad day or maybe they have lost their normal chef recently.

Could be.

I recognize exactly where you are sitting. When we were there last summer (my infamous TR that never ends) we were seated on the other side of that wall at the table where you see the white-haired man behind Mark.

You actually remember THAT FAR back?

Thanks for saying it for me so I wouldn't have to............

Watch it mister

Olivia's is definitely a hidden gem for dining at WDW!!!!

Yes it is and I hope it stays that way so we don't have problems getting in whenever we want to.

Magdalene ordered this when Jonathan and I met her there last October. Even though I am a big PB&J fan, I didn't think the milkshake sounded too good. But Magdalene let me try hers and I can definitely say Mark needs to order it next time.......it was very good!
Maybe we'll just get one at the bar next trip for a snack.

Nope, we don't want you and Meg getting into any more trouble than necessary.

Wow, a 3rd Dismeet already, and only on your second day! Great that you got some pictures from her Can't wait to see where you headed to that evening!
I am glad that we can make our DIS friends laugh.

Yes, 3 Dismeets...but, alas, it would be our last. I did look for a few others that I knew were there while we were in the parks, but never saw anyone else.

They do indeed still run the cowboy side! I get the gangster ALL.THE.TIME. so last trip I asked if they were running both scenes, we had to wait a bit, but we got the cowboy.
Well, Michelle, I think we should coordinate the next trip and you can do it with him. Seriously, I am no good for at least an hour or two if I do Rock&Roll.

I never thought to ask about the Cowboy; I'll have to do that next trip.

Thank you, friend. 50's PTC is great for the theme and the interaction if you get a good "uncle" or "aunt"; the food gets mixed reviews.

Yep, down to 41...it's going to be here before I know it.

I love TOT; Mark is just leery of it after his neck surgery. At least with R&R, he knows the ride; TOT is so unpredictable.

The derby hat does suit him, doesn't it. Perhaps they'll have a Christmas one I can buy him when we are there soon.

Too bad you missed BatB, but it sounds like you needed to take a rest. The best part is that you can see it in 43 days!!
Mark thought that was very sweet that you wanted to start the Society for him.

I'm not sure we'll have time for B&B in December...so little time and so much Christmas stuff to do. I'm sure if we go in June (us girls), we will see it then.

Why would you be sad at your favorite ride, Mark?

Check you out, getting in on the hat picture action!

Hey, he can't have ALL the fun.

I don't know, but I'm not willing to ride it enough to find out.

It does need an overhaul of some sort.

Cool!

It was extra sweet having photos taking by someone we've met on the DIS!

You could have at least tried it on.

That would have been an interesting one.

I remember seeing that fan hat at the Emporium. Dave tried it on and was really thinking hard about getting it! We convinced him a t-shirt might be a little more fashionable.
Smart decision.

I would love to meet up...I hope our trips "cross" at some point.

LOVE the solar fan hat...

That was a first for seeing that one.

No worries catching up with my TR...too many changes, I can't keep up...for now POR Royal Room (my first moderate since a bad experience at CBR duing cheer nationals years ago)

I AM getting caught up this weekend...I promise!

Mind you, I am a firm believer there's no such thing as a BAD WDW trip, some are just "bumpier" than others
I could NOT agree more with that. Any trip to WDW is a good one because you are in "your happy place"; but, like real life, there is a bump along the way on occasion.

I missed an attraction later in the trip that I love to do because Mark won't do it anymore and I was really mad at myself for NOT doing it.

I think some of the hats are new, but not all of them. But we have literally run out of hats for him to try on.

I saw your ticker and that you'll be there when we are. I'll have to link my PTR here so you can see where we are each day in December (we'll be with Nicki the entire time) and maybe we can say hello.

If I were a LOT younger, I'd probably still like RnRC.

I think Disney has run out of hats.

Hopefully in three years we will be moving to Disney.

Day 1, Park 2, Part 1

First, an update on my mom. We brought her home last night. She has early signs of dementia, but we found out the reason she became volatile and was hitting people is she was on 14 medications, including 4 different anti-depressants. They have her medications regulated and she is doing much better. She's actually eating and gained weight. She still has trouble sleeping at night, but she is calm and that is a good thing. Thank you for all the prayers and good wishes.


Okay, here we go...I've got to get this puppy going. We are still on Day 1 and I have 13 to go after that and just 41 days to get it all done in.

So when I last left you, we had gone back to OKW for Mark to take a little nap, I downloaded all my pictures from the first part of our day and changed clothes (it had been hot earlier at the Studios and I definitely needed a fresh top).

Before getting on our bus (which arrived in less than five minutes once again), I took a picture for Poolrat (Pat):



We hopped on the bus and in approximately twelve minutes, we pulled up, walked to the entrance and had our first photopass picture (and this one is from my camera) of Park 2 taken:



Yes, we were at my favorite park -- Magic Kingdom -- for evening Extra Magic Hours.



We walked in and the first place Mark wanted to go was:



He really had an excuse, or so he said. He wanted to buy something for his former assistant's little boy and was thinking of a hat. He couldn't find anything he liked for Junior, but had fun trying on a hat or two and having me look natural as MaryAz would say in my hat:





Before we could do any attractions, we had to eat...we were both starving. We hadn't eaten since our ADR at 11:30 at 50's PT and neither of us had finished that meal. We went to Cosmic Ray's the last two trips, so decided to ggo back to an old time favorite:



I had my favorite, the fried shrimp:



Mark decided to try something new this year that is talked about on the DIS a lot, the Anchors Aweigh sandwich:



He loved it and declared it a new favorite. His came with:



After having a good meal, it was time to hit the attractions. First up is a favorite of many:









After our ride with hitchhiking ghosts, I asked Mark where he wanted to go. He told me whatever I wanted to do was fine. Except I know my husband, and he was itching to go somewhere in particular but just wouldn't say.

How many of you can guess where we were headed?

Continued in next post

Hopefully in three years we will be moving to Disney.That is my dream..to one day move to WDW..if not I'll take a Florida Beach within a 2 hour drive, then I have an excuse to stay onsite
Hope getting Mom home was smooth sailing for you Kathy!!!

ETA...you and I posted at the same time Holy Cow Polypharmacy!!! Glad they straightened out Mom's meds!

You know the umbrella hat is a really good idea, even if I would never wear it....LOL.

I tried CHH for the first time in August, thanks to recommendations from the DIS, and it is YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
