Yay! So glad I caught your TR early on. I was looking forward to it since before our trip since we were there at the same time at the same resorts! Only we left Wednesday morning

I can't wait to see if any of our plans matched up!

I love how the Little Mermaid rooms look!!! I have one question though. The first photos I saw (I believe they were promo pics from Disney) showed the walls to be quite blue, and fitting perfectly with the rest of the decor. Then I saw other pictures and the walls looked beige and weird. Yours look sort of in between, more grey. What's the color of the walls?

Okay, that is just too funny about Brandon knowing the princesses... Actually, I'm almost positive my DH does too, but I think he would have feigned ignorance had anyone asked him to identify one!!

I thought the Coq Au Vin was also very yummy!

I got the hand roll in Japan and it was AWESOME! I hope Brandon eventually got one. If not he totally missed out and must plan a trip for next year.

You got some lovely night pictures in Japan!

Adult chocolate milk. That can't be more of a waste of money than the ice wine. That was a total RIP! (I think I told you that already).

The Ice Wine was ridiculous. I think they were seriously using a thimble to measure the portions for it

Aww, I wish I was there right now too. I was just thinking yesterday how really I should be going soon since we had that December reservation but cancelled. Atleast you get to go back before me! April is so far off...

Sounds like a good night at Epcot!

Great update, Jen. That chocolate drink looks really yummy. I just can't get myself to try sushi....not sure what it is, but it just doesn't look appealing to me at all.

Great pictures of Spaceship Earth.

I bet, if you bought the godiva liquor and made an iced coffee or even added it to chocolate milk it would be similar!
And that sounds SSSOOOO Deeeelicious right now!!!!

LOL at Brandon wanting the CS sushi. DF stopped at one of the standard coffee booths that are ALWAYS there in Epcot...I'm like "no I don't want anything from THERE!"
Haha, I know! Because I force him to watch princess movies!

Don't worry, I did get a waffle, it was just on a different day. I thought about getting one that night, but I kind of considered that dessert, and there was something else I wanted later that night...

Haha, I don't get it!! The Food and Wine festival is going on, you can basically have anything you want! This is why IF we end up going to WDW next year, I'm skipping F&W and going in December for pure Christmas magic.

Yay, I'm so glad you found my TR! It's funny that we were at the same resort, but we were on complete opposite sides!

I read your TR a little while ago, and already a day has overlapped, I was in MK when you were!

They are really cute aren't they! Hmmm...that's a good question...I want to stay the walls are kind of a greyish, like the pictures. I do remember thinking that I thought the walls were a little dull for such a bright room, but I can't remember if they were grey or really light blue!

Haha, I know, I'm surprised that he knows all of them, especially Aurora, because he doesn't like Sleeping Beauty (the movie)!

It really was! I think I want to try to make it this weekend, actually, I saw Tyler Florence make it on Tyler's Ultimate a few weeks ago, so now I really want to make it at home!

I'm pretty sure he did end up getting sushi from the Japan booth, I know I got the roll with the chicken in it, which was really good!

Thanks, Japan is so beautiful!

I know, I know, the godiva iced coffee is a total rip off, but I can't help it, I LOVE it! It's just so good!

Haha, that's funny, because MEK told me in my PTR that the ice wine was a pathetic amount so I skipped it because of her!

I know, don't you hate when you have a trip somewhat planned and then you have to cancel it! April isn't too far away, just a few more months!

It was a great night in Epcot! I love it there!

I never thought I'd like sushi, but some of it is really good! I don't eat anything weird, I stick to the kinds with crab or lobster in them, because that's usually cooked. I don't want to eat anything raw. Or with eel...I tried one with eel that Brandon got one day and it was disgusting! I felt like I was eating the ocean, it was just so ocean-y! And I have to cover mine in soy sauce, which apparently is NOT done if you truly like sushi!

Thanks!

Haha, I know, I've trained him well I guess!

Probably! I'm so intrigued by the actual stuff that they sell at the liquor store that is called Adult Chocolate Milk...it comes in a bottle, and it looks just like chocolate milk! I should just buy some this weekend!

Me too!!!!

Mmmmm.... That Mushroom Filet was so good when we ate there last week. It's one of those foods you dream about.

It takes a real man to know the Disney princesses. I applaud Brandon for his knowledge.

I can't wait to try the Food and Wine Festival! AHHH it all sounds so good!

I'm just LOVING that picture of SE across the lagoon.
