I'm a huge People Mover fan! I've never seen a line as long as the one that you had at MK.... wow! And I do like your pouty face on the tea cups ride!

I can't wait to hear about your business/pleasure trip earlier this month. I saw that you got together with Emmebear - how fun!
We had a blast!!!! I have another trip report started for that!

I know, wasn't that line ridiculous!!!!!!! It was so busy that it wasn't any fun that day.

We actually are talking about going back together. I thought it would be so fun to meet you and go around the same time that you are going but I don't know if I can come back at the end of Feb, is that still the time around when you guys are going back?

I enjoy reading all the stories about the other people that were there at the same time. People watching is part of the fun of Disney! Haha, the comment about Americans getting desserts and foreigners getting fruit is hilarious though. You could probably write tons of sociology papers comparing things like that just by observing people in the parks!

Watching LMA is the greatest when you go with people that don't know the secrets! I had such fun when my mom and brother finally saw the show last April. I also really enjoy the show myself, so even when we're not with newbies, we have a blast! I hope they don't get rid of it ... sad!

Mmm, 'Ohana! I wish it didn't cost so much. I'd totally go there more often if it didn't. I just can't justify the cost when I can't eat a lot in a sitting. I wish they could charge me by the pound of food I intake! That'd be awesome.

Aww, I love the video message from Merida you recorded for your cousin! What a clever idea! I think it's much better than just an autograph.

It stinks that you had to feel so horrible in MK. It's the worst feeling to be in a park and not feel good. I'm glad you were still able to enjoy some things like the wacky Jungle Cruise skipper! I wish more of them would be really into it.

BTW when you go into the stretching room at HM, go to the spot underneath the girl holding the umbrella. That's where the door opens up to lead into the loading area. Once I read about that, we always do it because I HATE the "funnel problems" as you said. People get really pushy, and it feels like it takes forever even though it doesn't. I just don't like feeling squished. In the past, I would wait for everyone else to go, but on busy days, we might be at the back of the crowd for our stretching room, but then a new group would then come out of the other one!
I absolutely love people watching in Disney. It is almost as fun as people watching at the airport! Haha. I love listening to conversations too! Its fun! The funniest is watching adults have meltdowns and get in fights, lol. I am always glad that doesn't happen to me!

Yeah I would feel bad going to OHana without the dining plan. We always get the DP so that is how I can afford it. If I wasn't using the Dp it would be a shock!

While I like LMA I am so ready for something new to go in there, like Cars land! Now that would be awesome. Maybe they can have some other car show to go along with Cars land. I really hope those expansion rumors are true!

I will have to see if I can post the video message on here. It is so cute. Gracie (my cousin) loved it soo much!

Late to the party but subbing in. I was already following your dining review for this trip so it's fun reading about the rest of the trip. I'm in Minnesota too. That snow was pretty but sure made driving messy. I'm so jealous that you got to go twice in just a few months. We try to go every other year!

Hi, joining in! I started reading your solo TR last night on my phone, then I noticed you had another one, so I started reading this one and I realized we were in Disney almost at the same time! I was there from November 8-17 (if you want to read my TR, my link is in my sig, I'm just starting Day 3 so not much to get caught up on yet!)

My DH and I were together for 10 years before he proposed AND he proposed in Disney, so don't worry, there's still time for your bf!

Isn't the Art of Animation amazing? We stayed there for one night in November before we moved to POR and I loved it, I really want to spend more time there! We didn't get to check out the pools or walk around or anything!

Ahhh there's so much I wanted to comment on, and now I can't remember! All I can remember is Le Cellier, because it was your last update! Le Cellier is my DH's and my favorite Disney restaurant and I'm in a bit of a depression because the changed the lunch menu! Not only is it 2 credits, but no more chocolate moose, no more cream cheese mashed potatoes...not good. I'm sure we will still go there, but I won't be using the dining plan anymore either, and we'll probably go only once a trip (we've been known to go at least 2 or 3 times in a week...I'm telling you, we're obsessed! )

Can't wait to read more!

All caught up! I am also sad about Le Cellier being 2 credits all of the time, it isn't worth it IMO, but I do enjoy it. I've never been at lunch either, so I didn't know about them singing the National Anthem, that's kind of neat! (although I am Canadian and I like the American anthem better lol) And your dessert is huge! The one picture it didn't look too bad, but you can really see how big it is in the picture where you are holding it

France and Photopass Goofs



After Le Cellier we decided to tour the World Showcase!

First thing we saw was Mary Poppins. We were talking to some guy in line about camping at Fort Wilderness. I guess he always comes to Disney every year and camps in Fort Wilderness. I am not sure if I would like that!



I am not sure what we talked about, but we did talk about a spoonful of sugar!

Then we made our way over to France.



I love these little art setups!



We even stopped for photopass at my favorite spot in the World Showcase, the France fountain.





So funny story coming up. I asked if Corey and I could get our picture alone next.



Next thing I know he asks us to kiss in the camera. Now Corey and I are not a PDA couple. I don't think anyone has ever seen us kiss in front of them.

So...this is what happened when I leaned in to kiss him!



I couldn't do it!!! LOL I started laughing!!!!! I don't know why but I just don't like kissing in public with people watching even if it is a peck!

So he ended up kissing me on my cheek!



After our photopass fiasco we looked around in the perfume shop in France. That is such a pretty shop!









At the Florida local stand I wanted to try the two wines, the Sangria and the Key Limen.





YUCK! The Key Limen was disgusting and the Sangria wasn't that great either, it was too sweet. I ended up giving Emily the Sangria and throwing the Key Limen away. I love this brand of wines, they have shops in almost every Florida tourist city. The tangelo is my favorite! Unfortunately, they didn't have tangelo here.

More World Showcase touring next!

Drinking Margs before Mission Space = No Bueno


We stopped for some beautiful sights of the Epcot ball in front of Italy!









I really wish they had a real gondola ride in Italy. That would be awesome!!!



I loved these Italian Mickeys. They were so cute. I contemplated getting one.



Emily wearing her Italian roots.



And now a photoshoot of one my favorite drinks that I learned about in Epcot- Rosa Regale!



And next up is my most favorite country in the World Showcase- Germany. I have a strong affection for Germany as I studied it in school and went to Germany in college.





I love this shirt and thought about buying it on my trip but I believe these are mens shirt and the Small was just too big for me



We rode Maelstrom in Norway and then took some goofy pics in the gift shop. Boy do I love the smell of Norway. Good thing I got that Laila perfume for Christmas!





One of my other goals for today was to get margaritas at La Cava del Tequila. So, we went in and the line was ridiculously long! It was like 20 people deep. Great, there went my idea.

But, I went up to see if there were any tables and there was one! All the people waiting were for to go drinks.

Emily and I both got the infamous avocado margaritas. It was a little too sweet for me but the texture was really good. I liked the flavor just wished it had a little more kick.

Emily was upset they don't serve them in cool glasses during the festival and corey was mad they didn't have the chips and queso we wanted to get!



Here was the aftermath. Emily finished hers, I didn't!! The table across from us was an odd couple. I think it was a son and mother but it could be a couple. The woman looked like she was 95 years old and the man like 60-70. I really hope that woman was using a scooter!







The Mexican pavilion is definitely one of the prettiest.

After this we went over to ride Mission Space. Bad idea- not good to ride this after drinking a marg. Emily felt really queasy after this and her stomach hurt. We met this really cool cool that was probably about 60. They were so excited for this ride and seemed so in love. I hope I am that way at their age.



We passed the Test Track area on the way. So sad I couldn't ride it this trip.

Haha, I can't take kissing pictures in public either! Before the wedding, I was like, "OMG, we have to kiss in front of my parents! AND MY GRANDPARENTS!" It's just so awkward!

Seminar for the Drunks!


After Mission Try-Not-To-Puke I need to pick up tickets for our Mixology Seminar.

We headed to the Food and Wine Festival Center which I realized the last time I was in that building was probably 14 years ago!

I got my tickets and then had to make a pit stop before I left. I walked back to the chocolate room and got drinking chocolate!



It wasn't that great. It was like drinking cocoa powder!

After I drank my chocolate which I only had like 1/2 of we went to use our fastpasses for Soarin.



We had a weird experience in line. Right behind us was a tour guide with a VIP group. There was two moms with about 3 kids ages 5-9? You could just see tell they were rich by their jewelry and demeanor. They weren't conceited or rude though. Well the tour guide was acting really weird with the kids. He was like obsessively tickling this boy the entire time and he was being really touchy. It was almost like they knew him as a family friend but I don't think that was the case. It sounded like they have been to Disney multiple times and every time they come they get this tour guide. Wouldn't that be nice!!

Emily liked Soarin but this is the first time that those squiggles were noticeable. In the beginning there was squiggly lines throughout the entire screen. It was like a long hair was in the film or something. It was bad. Upgrade time for Soarin!

We had a bit of time to kill before our Mixology so we went into Mousegears. I found some PJs I wanted really bad!!



And corey found a hat he really wanted!! ( Haha I pray to God he does not go on here)



Lol he looks so bad***!

Now time for our drunk session

The sponsor for our session was Cointreau and Mt Gay Rum.

Corey does not drink so I only bought tickets for Emily and I. Luckily, Corey could still listen. He just sat in the back of the room on benches.



We had two drunk obnoxious guys to the left of us and it almost seemed like they were hitting on us. Then in front of us we had a couple that was making out the entire time and had their hands all over each other! Puke!!

There was a huge pitcher of water on the table and that was nice. I drank a lot of water!

The drink mixer was a goofball. He thought he was hilarious but he wasn't.





The first drink was a fall harvest sangria. It was really sweet and had cinnamon in it. I didn't care for this drinkl.



The second drink was a Coronarita. It had a good marg flavor but that alcohol packed a powerful punch!



The third drink was a tropical punch. This one was my favorite! It wasn't too sweet but not too strong.



Heres Corey enthralled listening in!



That person videotaping knew the presenter because he kept hooting and hollering for him.

All in all the Mixology was a lot of fun. It was only $14 so it was good fun! The drinks together were about 1 full drink so if you are looking to get a good value on alcohol this isn't it. But it was fun to dry different recipes and see how different flavors go together. We got the recipes for these drinks and a hot toddy that they serve at the PFTS!

We even got a goodie bag with a margarita glass and a corona holder! it was kind of awkward and annoying to carry around glass in the park after but it was a nice gesture!



Before the seminar we decided to go to Via Napoli for dinner. I had two ressies one for the next day so we decided to do dinner tonight! Our reservation was at 6:45 and we didn't get out of the seminar until like 6:55 so we were a little late to Via Napoli.

Aw I am so glad I still have hope. My dream is for him to propose in Disney World!!! I did comment on your trip report! I didn't even realize about the chocolate mousse! Now I am p'oed! I love that dessert!!

unless it's raining- if the line at the people mover is more than 5-10 minutes- you are at the MK at the WRONG day. This happened to us last year. We had given up on park hoppers a few years back when we had to start going when school was put instead of off peak times. Hopping just doesn't work with high volume times as all the FPs you get are for later in the day, and then when you go to the next park, all the FPs have been handed out...but last year we got a deal and added it on...good thing. It rained, no POURED on one of our MK days...Thunder and splash mtn were closed, and ther was even a 30-40 minute wait on People mover by people just looking to get out of the rain. So we did a few things we never do (Carousel of Progress) and hopped over to Epcot- thank goodness.

I am sad Le Cellier will be two credits now for lunch. I don't think I will be using the dining plan here again. Heck, if the dining plan keeps increasing at the same rate it has been I won't be using that again either!


Yes- likewise- just had to cancel lunch in june. We stopped doing the DP a few years back (started with the original that included appetizers and gratuity- felt new plan wasnt a great deal- tried the delux plan a couple of times -way too much food) - sicne they have reduced the value- would just rather order wha twe want and pay accordingly.

Just not going to drop $40 on a steak for lunch

Love the World Showcase pictures! Haha, my DH and I are the same way about kissing in public, we just don't like to! We put up with it at Disney, when the Photopass people make you do it, but we always end up laughing because it's just so awkward!

I love the Germany pavilion, not only is it really pretty but they have caramel! Yum!

I love La Cava's margaritas, I don't think I could drink the avocado one, considering I've never eaten an avocado in my life! But they look pretty!

Your seminar sounds like fun, except for the people making out in front of you, that's just rude. I mean, in public is one thing, but at Disney? It's just so strange to me!

Hopping just doesn't work with high volume times as all the FPs you get are for later in the day, and then when you go to the next park, all the FPs have been handed out...but last year we got a deal and added it on...good thing. It rained, no POURED on one of our MK days...Thunder and splash mtn were closed, and ther was even a 30-40 minute wait on People mover by people just looking to get out of the rain. So we did a few things we never do (Carousel of Progress) and hopped over to Epcot- thank goodness.
Yes we were def in the MK at the wrong day. It was so crowded. I haven't ever seen the line that long! I gave up PH a long time ago! I miss it but not the cost and I have just as much fun not using it

Yes- likewise- just had to cancel lunch in june. We stopped doing the DP a few years back (started with the original that included appetizers and gratuity- felt new plan wasnt a great deal- tried the delux plan a couple of times -way too much food) - sicne they have reduced the value- would just rather order wha twe want and pay accordingly.

Just not going to drop $40 on a steak for lunch
The original DP would be sooo nice. I would feel guilty spending $40 on a steak at lunch too! unless we go cheap on dinner. I don't think how much it increases in price each year

I love the Germany pavilion, not only is it really pretty but they have caramel! Yum!

I love La Cava's margaritas, I don't think I could drink the avocado one, considering I've never eaten an avocado in my life! But they look pretty!

Your seminar sounds like fun, except for the people making out in front of you, that's just rude. I mean, in public is one thing, but at Disney? It's just so strange to me!
Obviously I don't even do well when Photopass people make us! I can't even do it! I want to try another La Cava marg. I think the blood orange sounds good! I love the caramels tooo!!!
