Subbing in! I've been off these boards for a while and I had no idea you were doing the CP. I've enjoyed reading your other TR's and I have been spending the last few days getting caught up on this one.

I'm so happy for you that you are following your dream. I hope you enjoy every day that you live there, since this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I'm really enjoying hearing the details about the CP. It has to be so much work for you to keep up your busy life & this TR! You are a rock star.

Subbing to this! I follow your adventures (and occasionally pipe up!) on Instagram and twitter. I really wish I had known there was a DCP when I went to school- you are living my absolute dream

A week ago the people mover was down so some lights were on. It was a strange feeling. I kept feeling like I was going to hit my head. Glad you a had a great time with your friends.

I still haven’t tried the croissant bread pudding. That is probably because I am OBSESSED with the strawberry shortcake…

FISHES. So cute!

I have never gone on Mission Space, and I am a thrill ride kinda girl! Some day…

Excuse me while I go sit in a corner and sob over Wonders of Life.


Be Our Guest for dinner is amazing. I ate there in November and I was BLOWN AWAY.

I didn’t even know about that lemonade! I will have to try it next time.

Wishes from New Fantasyland is AMAZING. It is like the show was MADE for NF.

So it's taken me a few days, but I finally caught up on your TR! It sounds like you are having an excellent time, and it's nice to fill in the gaps between your tweets and instagram pics.

That coaster set from Cast Connections is so cute! Also, I love the Mickey/Minnie shirts that you and Preston have!

March 7th, 2013 (Part 1) - Traveling the World With Duffy!

We had another Epcot morning planned for this day! We had to get on Test Track so we were up and out very early!

We stopped at the pin board on our way out and I found some AWESOME pins to go with my cast member costume mickey collection and an orange monorail. This was only the beginning of our crazy pin-trading day.

We got to the bus stop and the line for Epcot was so long. We then remembered that I had a car and it would just be so much easier if I drove us there. So we hopped in Brooke and she took us to the park!

Matt took our park passes and got us Test Track fastpasses. Karen and Alexander took the monorail over to Magic Kingdom and would meet up with us later.

Preston and I went over to Sunshine Seasons and got ourselves some breakfast! I had a plain bagel and a banana. The bagel was very fresh! I enjoyed it a lot.

Preston and Matt both got the breakfast paninis which they really liked!! I love that we went to Sunshine Seasons 3 times with in 24 hours. We're crazy.

After we ate we went on Living with the Land! For a group of teenagers, we actually REALLY enjoy this ride. I just think its so relaxing and eye appealing. It was a lot of fun to ride through. Also, it was a good preliminary introduction for our dinner at Garden Grill!

Then it was Test Track time! We got to design our car today which was really cool! This was the first time I actually designed it for real. We made an AWESOME car. Seriously, it was so good. It was light blue and had an insanely good power score.

However, when we went on the ride our car didn't even show up on the place charts! LAME! We were so upset because we DEFINITELY would've sweeped the board. It was such an amazing car. Ah well. The good thing is that Preston thought the ride was awesome! He never got to ride old Test Track so this was his first experience on it. He loved it!

Another bro picture:

Then we all decided to travel the world! TO WORLD SHOWCASE WE GO!

We started at the Mexico Pavilion and we went inside. We went on the Gran Fiesta Tour first! Preston thought he completely avoided It's A Small World on this trip (aka his biggest fear) but this ride gave him a little taste of what he was missing! MUAHAHA!

Then we decided we wanted to do the Kidcot Funstops so we could go around the world and get our Duffys stamped! The three of us sat down with the kids and colored our beautiful Duffys! It was so much fun!!

We got our first stamp in Mexico! They also draw a little flag or picture or words on the back of your Duffys now, too! AH it was so cute!

Then we decided to have our lunch! We knew we wanted to eat at the Mexico quick service, La Cantina so we got right in line. We ate inside of La Hacienda so we wouldn't have to deal with Orlando's obnoxious temperature changes.

Preston and I both got the Chicken Tacos and they were AMAZING. Wow, I seriously don't know why I don't eat here all of the time. I was loving life!!

Matt got the beef nachos minus the jalapeños and tomatoes. He was in heaven.

The boys ordered some Mexican soda to drink. It was Mango flavored. Preston loves Mango flavored things so it was right up his alley!

For dessert we all got Churros and WOW they were amazing. Ahhh yum, I absolutely LOVED them!!

Our next stop was NORVAY! We were going to go on the Maelstrom but THE RIDE WAS BROKEN. Clearly the morning rush caused some technical difficulties and we would have to return later.

So what do you do when the Maelstrom is closed? YOU EAT SCHOOL BREAD!!!!!!! And that is what we did! We got two of them to share between the three of us. Matt and Preston both have never eaten school bread and their eyes were opened. Matt was like in love. He said he was only going to have a couple bites and he ended up eating an entire school bread. Mmm I haven't had one in so long but it was super yummy! The custard is definitely my favorite part!


We also got our stamps in the Norway gift shop. The colder temperatures really dried out my hands so I decided to try that beautiful Norway lotion in the gift shop. IT WAS AMAZING. Its 40 something dollars though or else I would have totally bought a bottle for myself! It makes your hands so soft and it smells so good!!!

China was our next destination! We went to go get our stamps inside of the pavilion. We saw Mulan greeting but here line was REALLY long. So who did we greet instead? NORMAN JUNIOR! I had to introduce Preston to Norman Junior in his live and natural habitat.

I love the Flower and Garden display in China!

DUFFYS IN CHINA! Yes, my boyfriend colored his Duffy purple. No one should be surprised.

Our next stop was Germany! Nothing all too exciting happened there besides us trading pins and getting our stamps for Duffy. Although I did see this guy eating an AMAZING-looking piece of cake. I need to go discover where I can obtain such a beautiful food.

Italy was next, which is my and Matt's home country! YAY ITALIANS! We got our stamps and we also decided to try the dessert at the Flower and Garden booth. It was called the Limoncello Panna Cotta and it was WONDERFUL. The raspberries were some of the best we ever had. If you have the chance to try any of the F&G food booths, I definitely recommend this one!

I posted on twitter:
I haven't tweeted at all today. It's probably because I've been busy traveling around the world.

And also... I've literally been eating ALL day. Epcot loves me

The food booths at the flower and garden festival are kind of the best idea EVER.

Lady and the Tramp are PERFECT.

Our next country was the American Adventure! They have the Toy Story topiaries here again this year!

We got our stamps for Duffy and looked at the little pin trading booth. All of us were running EXTREMELY low on pins. And by that I mean I literally had one left to trade. Matt and I both invested in some pin sets so we would have some more to tide us over for the rest of the day. We were going pin crazy.

I also got THE MOST adorable Lady and the Tramp Flower and Garden Festival pin. Ahhh it was so perfect!! I love how Lady and the Tramp have been featured on so many of the limited edition pins lately! That was one of my childhood movies so I will always have a special place in my heart for them!

Then we went over to Japan and got our Duffys stamped again. One of the cast members made a Lotso out of a Duffy! IT WAS THE CUTEST THING! God, they're so creative!!

We had to go into Mitsukoshi because HELLO, Pokemon! Matt and Preston are BIG Pokemon fans so this was like heaven for them.

They wanted everything.

After browsing the store we went back to American Adventure and Preston grabbed an American Dream. YUM! This was a big hit. It is red slushie, blue slushie, and vanilla ice cream. You can get it at Fire & Drum. We all shared some because it was SO good. The boys did a lot of pin trading here and then we continued on.

Continued in Next Post

Ohhh I've never seen or heard of the "american dream" before I think that's the perfect alternative for my daughters,because the khaki gori always gets worn more than eaten and when I get my grown up slushie in France they always want a cool treat too.So thanks for including that cause I love that it has a lid YAYYYY ( trust me when it seems boring now,but when you're a parent you'll like lids too lol)
