Nice update, Jen. Great photos of Illuminations as always.

We may try to sample a few things at F&W during the Flower & Garden our one day at Disney next month.

I love F&W, too and we haven't been since 2011 and have no plans to go this year. The school schedule gets in the way .....grrr.

I hate the new photobucket and everyone is complaining about it. I think you HAVE to switch over the new system by March 16 or something like that.

I have been playing around with Flickr. It is very user friendly and I might switch over to that site if photobucket doesn't clear up their mess.

Love the Christmas decorations and the pictures of Illuminations.

The waffle was one of the few things I tried when we were there during the F&WF a couple years ago. It was really good!

Sorry Jen! I just had to get that out of my system.

Anyway - welcome back! Hope you had an awesome time. Will check out your TR when I'm done here.

I agree that the tree is the American pavilion is one of my all time favorites! It just screams Christmas.

You guys tried some yummy things that I never got a chance to taste test. I really can't wait to go back next October. In fact, I am so excited that I just booked my outbound flight. Woo hoo!

Photobucket just moved me Match 1st even though I was resisting too. No warning, just bam I am there and I no longer am using it for new pictures. It's ridiculous!
I wonder why some got moved, while others still have a week or 2 of hope left.

I like lobster, but how the heck do you eat that claw.

OH EPCOT. I miss that place.

Photobucket IS being a jerk. I'm angry with it. I wonder what photo site I can use now... darn photobucket.

The sushi looks amazing!! Yum, it has been SO LONG since I've had sushi and now I really really want some.

Whatever, your IllumiNations pictures are great! Love that show more than anything.

So many pretty decorations! So much yummy food! These are just two of the reasons why Epcot is amazing! I love Soarin', too, but waiting 70 minutes for it is never gonna happen!

I thought I was the only one who hates the new Photobucket! I hate how you have to actually go INTO the editor to resize pics... it was so much easier the old way! I hate change!

I am so determined to try that Godiva coffee this year! You always rave about it and I've never had it! We've basically planned to spend two whole days at Epcot, JUST to eat at the F & W booths. And I agree with you about the lobster thing...I'd rather just have chicken!

I made it over to your new TR!
AHh Epcot. I can never get my fill of that place. I'm feeling particularly wistful right now too! Christmas + Food & Wine + IllumiNations = best ever. I want to be there now!

Awww... I love Soarin too... but you did get some yums at F&W...love your waffle... I wonder just what make a Belgian Waffle -Belgian?

New Photobucket = EVIL...

Yum, I'm all about raw fish in sushi, of course, but I think having the chicken would be an awesome way to get some sort of sushi when I'm pregnant in the far off future and can't eat raw fish!

I still haven't smelled Laila before. I gotta see what the fuss is all about!

Hi guys! Sorry I'm taking so long to update here again, I'm sure you all know by now how sick I've been for the past week and a half! I'm finally almost better, so hopefully I can get moving with my Feb. TR and then concentrate on this one a little more, I was just so sick, I couldn't even sit at the computer! Ughh!! I guess it's good though, since I don't want this one to end too early, since my next trip is still SO far away!

I love that smiling in pictures seems to make Brandon nervous! It's so cute!
Me too! I keep trying to find a way I can do both Food and Wine AND Christmas in one trip again, but it's just not possible! The only way is if we go for a long weekend in October, then do our December trip. And I'm guessing that just won't happen!

Haha, I don't know why Brandon can't smile in pictures, he's strange!

I do know about changing opinion though, as it happened to me with MSEP this trip.
Haha, I just realized today is the last day before the switch, so I'm downloading pictures like a crazy person today! I still have pictures from this trip to download! And I have half of my Feb. trip left! Ugh!!!

I change my mind about a lot of things in Disney, I like many more things now! Like AK for example, I hated it the first time I went there, now I love it!

Glad to see you back updating! I missed the little touch of Disney Christmas that comes with your updates. Germany is probably my favorite pavilion at Christmas, the decorations are perfect there. And oh my goodness, that Belgian waffle looks absolutely heavenly!
I'm so afraid to see what the new Photobucket is like! I don't want to have to move all of my pictures!!!

Thanks! I'm glad you don't mind reading about Christmas in the middle of March! Because at this rate, this TR will be going until July! I guess it's ok though, I love Christmas so it's nice to relive it all year! That Belgian waffle is SO good! I can't believe I'm going to miss Food and Wine this year!

Thanks!

I love that they have booths at the Flower and Garden fest now! I'm HOPING we can go in May again next year for our anniversary, (and then finally do Disneyland next December), so hopefully I'll get to sample the booths for myself next year!

I've been to Food and Wine 4 years in a row I think? Or 3 years? So to miss it this year is just sad. But I'd rather go for Christmas, so I guess I'll survive!

Tomorrow is the photobucket switch. I'm dreading it!
