Nov. 13, 2012, Tuesday ~ Day 13

Our last full day. How depressing! This trip just seemed to go so fast (even though I have been working the report for 10 months now).

I donít remember how early I woke, but I am sure I was up by 7. I think I took a quick walk around the pool after I showered and let Claire sleep a little longer. I didnít bring the camera with me for some reason though.

At some point in time I had to get Claire going. She is just not a morning person and the long trip was taking its toll Öon both of us, as I noticed my eyes were getting more saggy and puffy each day Ö..but we had 1 more day of fun to be had.

While she got ready I took a few pictures around the room.

This was the bathroom tile.



The shower curtain. I think Claire was actually taking a shower then and was worried I was going to get her in the picture. LOL























And I finally took a picture of the new Disney Dooney I had purchased a few days earlier.



Finally Claire was fresh and clean and we headed out to the bus. But wait. She reminded me that she had not yet been over by the Ariel icon. I had walked around the pool in the morning and took pictures the day before, but she never did yet, so we went the long way around.





She was very chatty this morning and talked about all the fun she had been having and how she couldnít wait to tell her friends at school about her trip. 2 of her best friends were going to be traveling to Disney in the next few weeks, so she had many tips to give them.



We arrived at Epcot around 9:45. Not a super early start, but not the worst either. Sadly we really short changed Epcot this trip and this day we still didnít give it all our attention.

There was one ride that Claire insisted we ride right away this day. Figment! ...Journey into the Imagination. We had missed it the last trip together and she was disappointed that she hadn’t been on it in a while.



I figured it was best to tackle it right away and make her happy.

















We had a nice ride, but we all know the old version was better!





We had to make another quick stop.







If we wanted any chance of riding
Soarin’ later today we had to get some Fastpasses, so we collected those quickly. Well it’s never quick because I always get behind the family with like 15 tickets.

And Claire was a bit hungry at this point too. So I told her we would get something here that I always wanted to try.



The Strawberry Shortcake. MMM! It was pretty darn good and it was a nice treat to share to give us enough energy till lunch. Well actually at this point, with deluxe dining, I was almost full at all times of the day. LOL. But it still tasted good.

And then we headed back out after our tasty treat.










It looks crowded in the picture, but it was actually less crowded than it had been for our entire stay, but the crowds never did dwindle down much while we were there. I had heard that after we left it, so did everyone else. It was much quieter the rest of the week…darn it.



Isn’t this such a sweet picture. I wish I knew who the parents of these kids were and I would send them the picture.



I am thinking that I took this picture to get those flower arrangements, but people are in the way.

The resort is really beautiful. I love all the detail in the room. I am glad that you got to do Journey into Imagination with Figment. I agree that the old ride was much better, but I still have to do this every trip as I love Figment so much.

I haven't ridden Figment since the 80's. I don't really remember much about the ride. It wasn't one that our family cared about.

Great pictures of the golf ball, the close up of the triangles were superb. Very much in focus & very sharp lines, no fuzziness.

You are off to a great start on your last day, Jen.

Love the pics around the AOA and in you room...very cute.

Yes, the original Figment is better but this one is definitely better than the middle one.

I've heard great things about that Strawberry Shortcake and keep forgetting to tell Mark to try it (I don't care for strawberries).

Beautiful pictures around Epcot.

Catching up and holy cow about Michael. Okay Jen - You and your family have had enough with car accidents.


Have done the Halloween Party but not the Christmas party. I have seen the parade during the holidays and I love the gingerbread men.

Love all the pictures and last days are hard.

Your last day. Boo! So sad! Do you have another trip to write about after this one? I hope so!

I love taking random pictures of children. I hope that doesn't sound like I'm being a creeper, but they make the best subjects for photos.

Too funny that Claire thought you were going to take a picture of her in the shower. Poor thing.

I know that feeling of getting behind the person with 15 tickets.

It is really fun, especially for kids and adults who still think they are kids.

It's not a must do for me, but Claire likes it so I don't have a problem going on it. One trip I took a lot of pictures on the ride, but now I sit back more and just ride for the most part.

Thanks. I often take those triangel pictures for some reason.

I hate last days, but we did a lot this day and i still have a zillion pictures.
We also had another partial day after, but with a flight I am often afraid to go out for too long in fear something happens and we miss the flight, but we still did manage to fit some fun things in the next day too.

You will have to get to a Christmas party in the future. Such a fun atmosphere!

WEll I am writing the Colonial Williamsburg report. If I get time I might tag on my quick weekend trip to Columbus, though I didn't take a lot of pictures excpet when we went to the Conservatory. And then next March we will be going again and staying offsite. And I am trying to work in a cruise in that trip too, but only time will tell.

I guess I tried to get those flowers again.






Looking at my pictures, it looks like we were taking some crazy kind of walk. I think we must’ve used a restroom in this area.









And then we headed to Spaceship Earth.



I remember the line being longer than I like, but it moved fast and we didn’t have much of a wait.

I didn’t take any pictures during most of the ride as I have taken so many in the past, that I just rested this time around.

Of course it’s always fun to take pictures of your video.



It looks like I have a heck of a lot of teeth is my picture.



And out back to the park we went.



And I had a plan. We have NEVER gone in Club Cool before and we were going to remedy that now.



It was really neat inside and I loved all the holiday Dťcor.





Of course we had to try a few beverages.



Now I am not the mean Mom and didn’t play tricks on Claire. I told her that some would be better than others and some were supposed to be darn right nasty.
We tried them all and some were pretty good and even though I didn’t care for the Beverly, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. It was drinkable. (that picture shows the Beverly as out of order, but other drink dispensers DID have it) Claire really liked some of the fruity tasting ones though and had a couple of cups full.





After we had our fill of Coke products from around the world, we headed back out to the park once again.






And we wanted to try something else new.



We had never done the Kim Possible adventure before, so this was a totally new experience for us.





We got signed up and were given some quick instructions.

Our mission was in Mexico, so off we went.

Well not without a few pictures of the tree first.













I loved these trees. They were real too!







Hello Mexico!



We got right to work.



I am going to tell you upfront now. Claire LOVED this and I didnít. I couldnít hear much and Claire was hogging the phone so that I couldnít play along, which was fine, except that she didnít understand everything, so then I would have to try to figure out how to replay it so I could hear it and help Öor at least guide her the right way.



As time went on though, she seemed to catch on more, but it seemed to be sooo long!



I took pictures as we walked around in there. Some of the pictures are of things happening, but looking at my pictures I really canít tell which ones are just random shots and which are from the mission.







This one is from the mission. See the lighted numbers on the bottom of the piŮataís?











I believe there was a clue here, but I donít remember what it was.





And this was a clue as well.

Great pictures of the decorations and trees around Epcot.

I can't believe you had never been to Club Cool in all of your trips.

I've heard pros/cons on that game the kids played (that came way after our kids were going with us).

NO NO NO, Jen! That can't be your last full day. What am I going to do once you finish this baby?
Please go on another trip to Disney SOON!

Love the pics inside your room and because Claire thought you were going to take a picture of the shower with her in it.
Love your Epcot morning and guess what ..... we played the Kim Possible game a few times. It was fun to make things appear than look at people who were pointing and wondering HOW the heck they could turn these things back on.

Epcot looks just awesome with all the Christmas decorations.

Oh, and I congratulate you on choosing the same D&B that I have got.

It's already the last day? Me no likey!

I am with you on the phone mission thing (we did it when it was Kim Possible). It's not something that I'd want to repeat but the kids enjoyed it.
