Yes, I know it is 2 credits for lunch and dinner - I believe it is the only one like that! I've never been there either, but DF's family went there and LOVED it.

Yes, but I have 200 photos from that day and there's a lot to talk about, so stay with me !!

The kids loved Disney Quest. Since I was in the scooter, it was hard for me to really enjoy it. But DH didn't seem to mind taking them.

I want to try the Deluxe Plan just once. But I doubt we ever will. DH moans about how much food is on the regular DDP. We might try the HBD some day. I think the Yachtsman is the next signature on our list.

Day 5 Ė Part 1

We got up and got the car packed. I checked out and then we caught the bus to Magic Kingdom.



For once, we made rope drop. I was excited to finally see the opening show.







The kids were whining about all of the singing and when were we gonna go in ?? Until the train came.





And the characters came out. Then they had their attention.









After the show, we headed in with the masses.



We headed straight to the New Fantasyland.















Gastonís Tavern



Cute bathroom sign





Next up Journey of the Little Mermaid

Wow, I saw that it was a Thanksgiving trip and thought maybe I wasn't too far behind... and here you are posting about the last day.

Just a few comments, the EPCOT Segway tour looks like it would be an absolute blast. Even if your DH didn't exactly take many pictures. I think I'd be a little preoccupied with keeping from running over somebody with the segway to take pictures too. That and I'm sure there was a wealth of knowlege to be gained just by paying attention and taking in the details.

I'm sorry about your ankle, but I'm sure the scooter was a lifesaver. I went in the summer of 2008 after an injury and it was brutal. I'd had surgery to repair a torn achilles tendon in January of that year. When we went to Disney World, I had just been out of a walking boot for a little over a month and what I wouldn't have given for a scooter a few of those days! Even now, being on my feet at the parks all day and walking causes a lot of pain and swelling. I went through a whole bottle of Advil during our trip this year. I hope everything heals properly for you!

It was very rich. Very delicious, but very rich. I couldn't finish and neither could DH. I would order it again, though !!

Yes, I am posting once a day so I can be finished before our next trip in January.

I completely understood why he didn't take photos. He absolutely loved the tour and still talks about how much fun it was.

this whole ankle thing has been horrible. And since you had the achilles injury, you kind of know what I am going through. There's no way I could have made it through without the scooter and when we go in January, there will be no way I can do it without the scooter. I am walking much better, but even getting out of the car and walking into a store. Doing my shopping and getting back to the car is trial. So there is no way I can last through even 30 minutes of walking in the parks. Plus, I still have a very pronounced limp.

Day 5 Ė Part 2

We headed to ride Journey of the Little Mermaid.





I asked DH to take a lot of photos. He line was moving pretty fast, so eh didnít get much of the details. But here is what he got.















We were worried about taking flash photos on the ride and we usually donít, but EVERYONE else was doing it. So when in Rome Ö..









Those were the best ones he got. Most of them were blurry.

After that, DH and DS went over to get fast passes for BTMRR while DD and I went to see Ariel in her grotto.









Ariel was really great spent a lot of time talking to her. This was really great character interaction. And she was truly beautiful.













After that, we looked around New Fantasyland some more.

Thank you for the phototour of Fantasyland. I have no idea how my pictures turned out because they are on a disc I didn't upload yet. I guess I bet get cracking.

I love that picture of the castle. Very cool angel.

DD looks like she is enjoying her visit with Ariel.

Glad the kids had a good time at Disney Quest.

Hooray...you made the opening show at the MK. Too funny that the kids had no interest until the characters came out.

I loved the new Fantasyland and really enjoyed the ride.

Great Fantasyland pics! I actually never got to see the stand by queue for Little Mermaid. It looks like it is as beautiful as advertised!

I am jealous of you seeing the rope drop show at MK. I swore that I was going to do that on my last trip but I never got up early enough to see it. I am definitely a late night person and not an early morning person.

Thanks. I am pretty sure DH took it.

Ariel was wonderful. She was so funny and so great at interacting witht he kids and really took her time to ask questions and listen. I really loved her.

Yes, the kids really like Disney Quest. I am happy that DVC had that offer of the Preium Pass

There was much more to it, but the line was moving so fast, we didn't feel like we could stop to take photos.
