We are pretty sure one of Maximums for sure. Not a 100% on the other one, though. Some of the people have said it was the horse from Mulan, and other have said they are pretty sure it Philippe from Beauty and the Beast. And now you have presented and equally plausible candidate. I might need to research it more and find out who it really is. A quick Google search didn't really provide me with an answer, so I will have to dig more to find out. Very interesting .... :-)

We chose a couple of different "rides", and then some people were waiting, so we needed to let them have a turn. I think they had about four of these and each one seats two people. But I thought it was pretty neat.

The Buzz Bumper thing was fun. It would have been more fun if there was more room to drive around. The space they have is pretty restrictive. Maybe if they even took a car out, there would be ore room. What I thought was kinda cool is they they had all of these balls all over the floor. The bumper car "vacuumed" them up and they would be in a bin inside the car. You would open the bin, get a ball (it's big, about 10-12 inches in diameter) and put it in a blaster and you could shoot it at the other cars. So you need a driver and a person to do the blasters. You can't do both.

I think we needed to ride it a couple of times to really get the hang of it and for it to be MORE fun, but we only tried it once. It was pretty cool though.
Well you did a good job explaining it! Thanks! That sounds really cool, especially the bumper thing! If you didn't have the premium AP, would you say it was worth it to go?

GAH !! I just don't know !! If I were you, I would add the Water Parks and More option to your MYW tickets and do it then. That way you still have the water parks to do as well. Personally, I wouldn't pay $44 a person to go again. But now that we have unlimited visits for a year, we will go back for sure.

I AM HERE!!!!! And loving it so far!

I have to ask, what floor were you on in the studio at SSR? Just curious…

I have to say, the Vanellope doll is a little scary

THE BACON WRAPPED MEATLOAF, COME TO ME. Omgee, it looks INCREDIBLE.

Some of the stuff at Disney Quest looks really cool. I personally am not a fan of video games, but some of the stuff sounds awesome!

Yay !! I am so happy you stopped by Meg !!

We were on the third floor that first night in a studio and then again on the third floor across the little pond in the 1 BR for the remainder of our trip. I'm gonna scream if you say you were right next door to us or something like that .....

Haha - she is a little scary looking, I guess. But DD loves her and is really into her doll. Have you seen the movie yet ??

That meatloaf is super delish. I could just eat an entire plate full of those onion ring thingys. All of is was amazing.

It does have some cool things to see and do.

I am here.
We are driving in December next year. I cannot wait. I think driving makes it more fun.
Great looking room.
I love the special they put out for DVC members. I have to call this month to get a voucher for next year.
I had that meatloaf this past trip and it was so good.
We have never gone to Disneyquest but we will check it out next time. Looks like fun.
Looking forward to more.

Hey Scott !! So glad you could make it !!

But driving from NY - that is a LONG way.

Yes definitely need to get that voucher. Best AP deal ever !!

Yes, that meatloaf is super yummy.

Might was well if you have the premium AP.

You had the same studio ??? For realz ?? Did you get our bottle of wine we left for you ?? DH was so bummed to have left it and we were wondering if the cleaning lady got it. I bet you were glad we checked out of that room so early that morning ...

Yes, that movie was great. We want to go back and see it again !!

Well, now that I go back into my journal and my pictures, I see that we had room 4347. But, our room looked EXACTLY the same and we had the same view!
I guess not because we didn't have a bottle of wine in our fridge

I've never been to DQ, but it seems like a fun activity for the kids! I really want to see Wreck-It Ralph - it looks really cute!

All caught up!

First of all - yeah that your ankle is healing so well. I know its a very slow process, but it sounds like you are really on the mend.

Second - I really like the studio refurb at SSR. It's been several years since we've stayed there and that furniture was getting so tired. I love SSR. I'm not kidding - its so scenic.

Third - yeah for WPE! My brother had that entree in June and loved it.

Fourth - Love all the Christmas decorations. It makes me hope that there is a little Christmas going on by the time we leave next year on November 4th.

Fifth - yeah for starting off the PAP by going to DQ. I would love to go there this summer. It's a great reprieve from the heat.

And finally - it must be something about chemical people - my DH is a chemical engineer and I would describe him the same way you described your DH - he pretends to tolerate my Disney obsession but DOES secretly love it. When I suggested that we change the dates of next's year trip (which is on his birthday), he got quite upset.
