That ravioli looks GOOD.

HAHAHA, "a somewhat hostile Norwegian voice." That struck me as hilarious.

I love Epcot at night. Why is it so perfect? I really would love to know.

I'm glad you made Brandon let you out to get those AoA pictures, because I love them! That resort looks so awesome. I cannot wait to see it in person.

LOL... you're right that anything with tomato sauce and melted cheese is quite tasty... We have a take out Italian place near us... sometimes Eric will order their manicotti or lasagna and the best part is the sides where there is just extra cheese that baked right on top of the sauce... I always snag some of that when he's not looking...

You're also right that the narrator voice on the Maelstrom is a little sinister... I hadn't thought about it... but when I read it... I have to agree with you... It is a cute little ride though...I like those trolls too...

(Don't you just wish WS had another one or two of those kind of rides... Italy would be a prime place for that... hmmm... actually Canada might be good as well...)

Mouse Gears is probably my new favorite "big-overall" Disney Merchandise store... It's not crazy big like World of Disney in DTD... but I think its really well laid and well stocked... you really can find pretty much all of the general Dis merchandise -it's attractive and a pleasure to shop in...

I was laughing about you having Brandon drive around so you could get photos in front of AoA... I would so have done that too...

I had that same dish in Italy and it was really good. I liked it. I guess I must be simple, too!

What, no rita in Mexico? At least Brandon went for it.

I bet you guys did crash hard after your early morning. Can't believe you are getting up and saying goodbye to AoA already.

I love all of the night time pictures! There is something magical about the parks after dark (or really any time I guess lol but I like the dark) Crazy lines at F&W though wow.

Well, I should have been in bed hours ago, but I had to place a quick post. Truly enjoying your TR. Your pictures and descriptions have me walking right along with you at WDW.

Looking forward to reading more.

I think a Karamel Kuche air freshener would be a brilliant idea!!

I LOVE the Mexico pavilion, I think it is so perfectly done!

Ambitious plan for the morning....but I think you can make it!!

I know what you mean about the lines for Hops and Barley being ridiculous. Every time I passed it when we there, there were people streaming out of the queue.


Mmm, the chewy caramel bar is the best. I love that store and can understand how hard it is to choose just one thing. I mean, how can you limit yourself to one sweet? Near impossible...


AoA looks so awesome lit up at night!

That ravioli looks delicious!! I agree with the whole tomato sauce and cheese. Such a wining combo. Good work Italy!

Yay Maelstrom! The trolls and the hostility really make that ride

Laila smells so flippin great! I always coat myself in a thick layer of it after Maelstrom... it's all good though because due to the lovely Floridian heat and humidity, I sweat off most of it in about 5 minutes.

I love that you made Brandon drive out to get that sign picture!
Totally reasonable thinking to a dis-head

Sounds like an insane morning ahead!

Loving the AoA photos !!
I love Epcot! I could probably spend my whole trip there and not be upset!

WHAT???? I almost bought one not knowing the lights lit up, if I figured that out, I'd have yet another Perry doll at home with me!

Thanks, AoA is cute isn't it!

It really is! A lot of people don't like it, but I think it's yummy!

I'm not sure why the narrator on Maelstrom is so angry at first! He calms down once the ride moves on, but when you're going up the hill, he's basically yelling at you!

I would love to know why Epcot is so perfect too. I'd love to know why I can't go ONE day of my life without wishing I was in Disney!

I'm glad Brandon stopped to let me take a picture too, he didn't want to at first, but I insisted! When we drove by it I told him to just let me out in the middle of the street, but he had to park and get out and everything! It's such a cute resort!

Haha, whenever I make chicken parm at home, I always make sure I put extra cheese on the sides, just so I can eat melted cheese...I feel like that might be a problem!

Yeah, I don't know, that Norwegian man just seems so angry at first! I wish there was another ride in the WS...I heard Italy was supposed to have a ride like that with a gondola, that would have been cool! France and Canada would be great spots too! I wish they would do something new in WS, I love it but it would be so exciting to have something new!

I love Mouse Gear! I don't know when this obsession started, but it is probably my favorite store in the parks too, it's just so cute and they have so much stuff, yet it's not crowded or crazy in there! And they play good music!

I'm actually surprised Brandon didn't put up too much of a fight when I made him drive me to take those pictures...he thought it was kind of stupid, but he did it! I'm glad I did, because it looks so cute all lit up!

OMG that caramel popcorn is so good! I didn't get any on this trip, but I will definitely be getting some in February!

I love Norway, and I love the stores there! Especially the Laila! Ahh someday i will buy a bottle!

It seems like no matter how tired I am, I'll always be able to take a detour through Mouse Gear!

Haha, I always read F&W reviews, and people always say they hate it! I'm not sure why, I think it's good!

I know, I'm lame! All I think about for months is the rita's in Mexico, and then I'm too tired or too hot or something and I can't get one! Brandon can drink at anytime of the day, however. For me, it seems like the stars have to be aligned perfectly or something. Lame.

I know, I thought we'd have so much more time at AoA, but that's what happens with those one night stays! Hopefully someday we'll stay longer than one night!

Thank you! I agree, I love the parks at night! I mean, I love them during the day too, but at night they are just so pretty and magical!

Haha, yeah, some of the lines that night were pretty insane, but most of them were manageable! I'm not sure why the super long line at Hops and Barely, I guess everyone just wanted Sam Adams!

Wouldn't it??? I mean, I LOVE those turkey legs, you know that, but I sniffed those air fresheners and they were gross. Caramel would be so much better!

I love Mexico too, it's so pretty, and I think it smells so good in there! And I finally walked around those little stores inside, and they are so cute! I had no idea! I could spend hours in there!

Ugh, I don't know what I was thinking with that next morning...

WHAT??? You've never smelled Laila? If you have walked through the shops in Norway, then you have, because the whole area smells like it! I just love that you can actually buy that scent and spray it on your body, it's so pretty! And I don't usually like perfume, but this is perfect!!

It was such a busy morning...an early morning!

We were finally able to get there another night, but that night, it was insane! Like probably the longest line I've ever seen at a F&W booth! Crazy!

Maybe I should tell myself the next time I go in Karamell Kuche that I need to try something new...maybe that will make the decision process easier!

AoA was so cute, and it's even prettier at night!

The ravioli is so good! And it's a huge portion, it's almost like an entire dinner! I love it, I wish the Italy booth was always there!

I love Maelstrom, it's so weird, yet so entertaining!

Haha, I do the same thing with the Laila! This time I started spraying it on my clothes too, so it would stay on me longer! I really have to buy a bottle!

Haha, I didn't see anything wrong with detouring the take a picture of the sign! He thought it was weird, but then again, he's been with me to Disney enough times now that he's used to my obsessive picture taking!

It was a pretty crazy morning!
