Signing bonus IS important!
Between my Capital One that I use to erase travel expenses and my Discover with the random 5% I hemmed and Hawed over upgrading. The signing bonus sealed the deal for this year. We shall see as time goes on.

Thank you! I have definitely been way less stressed this past week. It was really starting to get to me. Phew - what a relief!

Exactly! As a bonus trip I really can't be too upset about staying off site. I just hope I like the resort and that it has a decent pool area for relaxing. I love my pool time!

You shall see soon enough! Let's just say that after Cynthia left and I was solo I took A LOT of pictures!

OK - this signing bonus is intriguing me. I know I originally signed up for the card because I got $100 gift card. That was the only way I could get Denny on board with it.

Thanks! Job news is the best news because you can't have Disney without a job to support the Disney habit. I am really happy that the June trip is back on track and that we are flying.

Yes - the stars aligned. I am thrilled that we are going. I am bummed I am going to miss you by a day. I wanted to fly in Friday but I may have to go before a credentialing board, so the earliest I could fly in is late Friday night and Denny is sort of balking at that. Fortunately my reservations on SWA so I might be able to talk him into it.

That's exactly what Glen said. Hopefully Cynthia will chime in here too because she has the premiere card. With my AAA card I get these awesome rebate certificates and I have literally paid down my cruise by about $450. I should have another certificate or two coming before my final payment is due. I just love that!

Getting caught up, so glad you got a new job, it can definitely be scary being between jobs, it's great you will be able to avoid that.

Glad you were able to still make your June trip work out. That's good you were able to get a good price.

Love the WS pics!

I'm glad you're still doing your June trip. That'll be fun and a nice thing before delving into a new job.

Great update. DS also loved the ravioli.

I was absolutely worried about being between jobs. That was scaring the crap out of me, so I am thrilled it all worked out.

I booked through priceline. It's a refundable rate and hoping it will end up actually being a good deal - that is if I like the resort - than its a deal.

This will be a bit of a shorter update so we can stay sort of in sync and apparently I did not take many pictures at all towards the end.
Missions completed at MK, not to mention a perfect start to my last day, I headed over to Epcot. That last monorail ride is pretty darn sad too.

So...I decided to document my last visit to the Food and Wine festival this way











Sniff.

Happy Anniversary Epcot!





I had really thought I might end up with some anniversary merchandise but nothing really "grabbed" me, for me. Although interestingly enough since then I downloaded some of the retro icons you see in that picture and use them on my desktop at work.

I headed over to the WS to meet up with Mary Ellen and Christine. If memory serves they were in Italy at a lovely table, just enjoying a drink and each other. As I was now ready for something (or a lot of somethings) myself we headed to the Florida Local kiosk.



White Corn Arepa with Magalista Pork Rillette and Zellwood Sweet Corn Salad. And Florida Orange Groves Hurricane Glass 5, Florida White Sangria.

I LOVED the Pork Rillette, the sangria however was too sweet for me.
It was a little trickier to find a spot to eat but we did and were able to watch the filming going on.



From there, apparently according to my pictures we moved on to Singapore and I got this



Seared Mahi Mahi with Jasmine Rice and "Singa" sauce. And a glass of Marques de Caceres "Satinela"

Delish!!!

At this point I believe we parted with Christine. It was SO wonderful to hang out with her for a bit, nosh in the sun and sip some wine. The perfect "winding down" for the end of my trip.

After we parted, in a complete trek across the world we headed to Ireland for cheese. Actually we just headed over that way and the menu grabbed us...Kerrygold and all. I have no picture to prove it...perhaps Mary Ellen does?

I do however had a receipt and a memory and my passport. Thank heavens for all of it or I wouldn't have a clue. I had the

Kerrygold Cheese Selection. Irish Aged Cheddar, Dubliner and Cashel Blue Cheese with Apple Chutney and Brown Bread.

Heaven on a plate. I probably have zero pictures as I inhaled it.
Last but not least (and it was next door) Canada for this beauty




Chicken Chipotle Sausage with Sweet Corn Polenta and "Minus 8" Onion Jam.

Yes, I know it’s not the fillet. I wasn't in the mood. Plus, they had me at "polenta"

Tummy finally full and time closing in on me...what would be next? I still had almost 2 hours before I had to be on the not to magical express.

No! You cannot go back home now.

Love the update. F&W is outside our vacation time, so I really live through all of your reports.

This looks really good. I guess I was still too full from the ravioli. I do have a picture of the cheese plate, somewhere.

Cute PP pictures as well!

Soarin or Cynthia

Soarin or Cynthia

It looks like Cynthia did a great job finishing up her last couple hours in the world at F&W. I, however, must have been too full from that yummy ravioli.

But I did manage to make room for the Kerry gold cheese platter in Ireland



I can verify that we did travel to Canada, because here's a picture!





I had a FP for Soarin, but I needed to make a decision….head back to BWV with Cynthia or stick around and use my FP.

I decided that Soarin will always be there, but Cynthia would not. So I picked Cynthia over Soarin.

We saw Mary Poppins on our way out. I just love Mary Poppins. So serene and refined.



I know its wrong to take pictures of totally random people, but I can't help it when its comes to getting pictures of Mary P.



Goodbye Epcot









When we got back to the Boardwalk Cynthia decided she had some time to hit the pool. And this time we got brave - real brave - and we decided to hit the Clown Pool.



And you know what - that crazy clown wasn't all that scary after all. We actually both really enjoyed the Clown Pool even though neither of us braved the pool.

(sorry random person who appears in this next shot)



It was a perfect afternoon and I was certainly not disappointed that we hit the pool. It was just perfect



AT some point I got a text from Tracy saying that she had just had her makeup done in France and she wanted to know if I was still in the park to come see it. I was bummed that I missed her. I know she looked totally beautiful because later that evening she posted a picture on FB of her with her niece at Victoria's and Alberts. How would I know that was going to be one of the last pictures I would ever see of Tracy.

Sorry. I just have that memory and its so vivid.

Now, just to change the subject, here's a picture of a resort trash can.



So, I'm going to stop here because I am sure Cynthia would like to write about her departure before I do. So I think I'll use the space to post some HHI pictures. Enjoy!

On our way to the island (once we exited I95)

(sorry for the dirt on the windshield)



Getting ready to cross the intercostal





A cell pic of our arrival - note the Mickey glove



Our first sunset



A squirrel in the tree off our back porch



The view from our porch



A better view from our porch




The view from our porch to the marina






Cell pic from my run the first morning. This is the start of the path that goes to the beach




Cell pic from the path - this shows the main lodge which is impossible to photograph in its entirety unless you are on this path



Continued In Next Post.......

I knew she was just running over to MK to get her T's and do her last minute rides. I think she did that the last time we roomed together, too. But she still hasn't showed us her purchase yet, has she?

I think you would really like it. I don't recommend it for a solo trip, although I'm sure you would have a great time there solo because you meet people wherever you go. But I mean because all the dining is off site. I hate eating too many sit down meals alone.

MK: Definitely the low light of the trip is when your traveling companion must leave... heck, when you have to leave! It's good to know that you abandoned your FP to spend time with Cynthia!

Thanks for sharing the HHI photos. I don't think I've ever seen photos of the resort/beach. I know you need a re-do of that trip!

So you went to the pool but now clown slide?

Cynthia: I'm completely agreeing with your chicken chipotle sausage and polenta choice! Was the sausage spicy? I'm picturing it having a bit of a bite but even if not, I love polenta.

Such beautiful photos of you at Epcot near the entrance!

It looks like you guys are synced up in your TRs.
