Gone in 60 Seconds???

Nice update! Great to see just how much Noelle has gotten into everything since the start of the trip!!!

Wonder where he gets that from? At least if you substitute beer for ice cream.............
i know passed on lots of beer for that ice cream bar.

i saw someone walking with it and it didnt look as good as it sounds, but might have been okay.

she was really getting into thats for sure, will make the next trip that much better when she can really interact with everything.

he takes after his pops what can i say.

Chapter 57. Still searching for that mickey bar

Chapter 57. Still searcing for that mickey bar.

After leaving the kid station in norway we ventured on toward mexico...seeing mexico parker declared that we HAD to stop to ride his favorite ride mexico small world.

i see he is forgetting the ice cream mission but a ride is a ride so we headed inside.

the three caballeros

i was happy with my low light function no flash pics on this ride but will just share one to not bore you guys.

upon exiting the ride, we found the pressed penny machine where parker made a penny of the new favorite ride for his book.

and sharing the love of hat pictures the kids got into the spirit

parker more so than noelle.

she was more of yeah okay dad you took your picture now let me out of this hat, i might see someone i know and you are embarrasing me.

with mexico donald under our belts, we headed off to get a picture that we had missed so far during the day, our photopass pic with the icon of the park.

which as quickly followed by a stop at club cool, i mean you cant stop there and not try and force someone into drinking the beverly right?

looks like a couple of people who are not going to fall for the beverly drink.

nope no dice, they didnt fall for it...me i tried them all of course even the beverly but with the kids being antsy we didnt get the pictures of it.

it was about this time noelle fell asleep in the stroller.

and with still an hour till illuminations was suppose to start we made the decision that since it was raining on and off and we were not even sure they would start them at the right time that we would head out of the park.

but first stopped in the food and wine festival center to pick up a few things.

we got a set of wine glasses, and a food and wine pin for me.

and tried to get a bottle of the category 5 wine candi liked in FL but they were sold out so we just took our purchases with us and of course went into mouse gears since it was right on the way out of the park.

we didnt get anything but did end up trading vinylmations, the first 3 that we picked, me, candi, and parker were dudes...

noelle picked a AK 10 year anniversary one and we chose to swap that out with ours.

after we left with our new vinylmation friend, we walked past the innovations which we didnt realize closed at 7 and we missed out on showing that to parker this trip, but we did find the glowing optics light in the cement around the building that he enjoyed.

towards the entrance i asked parker if he wanted a picture just me and him with the ball behind us and he said sure,so he hopped up on my shoulders for this one.

and with that we left the park.

but you might be wondering about that mickey bar, and if you were not wondering about it then im sure you are now.

we didnt see any stands with them in future world either, so it was not meant to be this day.

we made it back to the resort, but as we walked through the food shop parker and i made a bee line for the freezer case.......

and low and behold.

he got his ice cream mickey bar.

now we are not sure if the events of this day caused what will happen the next day but lets just save that for another time shall we.

Mexico is our favorite country. So nice and cool in there. Plus, you have the 3 calballeros as you know

Nice photopass pics

Glad Parker was able to get his ice cream treat back at resort

What a quest and then getting it back at the resort. Parker was patient.

Innoventions closing early makes me I have done the same thing several times.

My favorite time to do the 3 Caballeros is right after Illuminations on a EMH night. Glad Parker loves it.

I am curious to see what happened the next day...

Hey, I found your TR recently and have been reading and now I am finally caught up.

Reading you TR has been most helpful as we will be going to AoA this fall with 2 four year olds and 2 one year olds. So seeing how your kids handle the park has been incredibly helpful.

We currently have ADRs at T-Rex and I am getting a little nervous. We are definitely rethinking that one.

But it was cool to see Parker get so into the pressed pennies, now I am thinking we need to take some change.

Don't you hate it when you decide to get something you've seen everywhere...and suddenly can't find it? Poor Parker - he was a trooper as he waited for his Mickey bar!

As for F&W offerings, I tried the beef in South Africa and the lettuce wrap (South Korea? Now that I'm replying to you I'm drawing a blank). They were both pretty darn tasty! And there were a bunch of others that I would've liked to try, but I was in the same boat as you - we were toting three hot and tired kids along with us that weren't interested in any of it. Glad you two got to try some of the drinks you wanted to, though!

Hey Fauntleroy!

Been out for a while, but I've been catching up as I have time. My son loves 3 Caballeros also!

I am working on a super secret plan for a camping trip the end of next month...any tips on Fort Wilderness for a tent camper? I haven't been there since 1983 and I read your report on the trip you took with your parents...anything to watch out for or really focus on doing?

Thanks for posting the great Trs. I don't know how I'd get through the non Disney parts of my year without y'all.
