SSRMonkey and Koala's Excellent Adventures. Live at SSR 3/16/13-3/23/13.

I'm baaaaack! And we're here for 7 whole days! After horrible traffic, we finally made it and are all checked in to the Carousel. We got a brand new room. Sure does smell like new carpet. So much better than wet monkey smell.

We are ready to party like its 1999. I don't know what that means exactly, but it must have been something good. Prince made a lot of money on that song.

We're going to MK tonight, but first, to the pool--I will only be observing, no swimming for me!! Then to EOS for dinner!!

Party on, Koala!

Well, my DGS was born in 1999 -- it's always something to party about for us. Love the new bedding. My DD will be extra sad that she doesn't get to go on my upcoming trip in May and see that and the new sofa pillows -- she loves her some horsies.

Are you in Carousel on purpose? So many folks seem to want to shy away from that area -- it is easy for getting in and out tho when you have a car.

Have a super duper time -- you and Koala stay dry and happy and away from barrels of you-know what! (Don't want you to get lost in any crowds).

We've been in the Carousel several times. Although it's not close to a pool, you're right, it's easy to get in and out of. And with our car it makes it really nice. The parking lot is really empty tonight so either there aren't a lot of people in our building or no one has cars!

EOS was delicious. It's been confirmed, the holiday sandwich is available all year round now. Dad decided to wait on that and had the Carribean Jerk instead. Mom shared her grilled cheese with me. After a chocolate stop at Ghiardelli, we headed to MK.

We thought MK was going to be very busy and it was. First things first, we headed to BTMRR to get FP. They were about an hour out so, we headed over to Pirates. I've only seen a line that long for Pirates at Christmas. We decided we would just wander around. Apparently Koala and I annoyed Dad a lot today, so he made us go to CBJ. For those of you who don't know, I despise CBJ. I've been known to call it the animatronic freak show. I thought maybe since they redid it, it might be better. WRONG! It may have been a bit worse.

First, this guy looks so sad...



And then Momma June from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo shows up...



As if that's not bad enough, the triplets come out. And they wonder why the lyrics to this are true...



I have no doubt that if they took off their sunbonnets, they would have a much easier time finding a bear. Ok, I have a lot of doubt about that.

And last, but not least, this guy with the blood on the saddle and blood on the floor...



Even the talking heads on the wall were rolling their eyes.

After that horrible punishment, we headed back toward Fantasyland. Unbelievably, PP had a very short line so we tried that out. It was cool, but I'm not sure why there is usually a 75 minute wait.

It was time for refreshments. We tried some LeFou's Brew.



It was delicious. So delicious that Koala tried to do a keg stand. He didn't quite make it.



Since we couldn't drink and walk, we got back into the bag for a ride back to BTMRR.



When we got to BTMRR, unfortunately it wasn't working. Bummer. We'll have to try again.

Then it was off to the confectionary for our usual first night treat.



Tomorrow we have to stock up on some food and such and will spend part of the day at Epcot. Sweet dreams!

I'm sorry you had to suffer through CBJ I actually really enjoy it because of the childhood memories it brings back. Glad you enjoyed LeFou's Brew, and I'm even happier you had safe transport after Koala's keg stand (safety first). Your treat looked delicious. I hope you enjoy your day at Epcot!

We had a good day so far. Since we didn't make it to Wal Mart last night, we headed to Panera for breakfast. We saw a real live leprechaun there. I almost asked where his pot of gold was, but Koala stopped me. He reminded me that not all leprechauns are nice like the Lucky Charms guy. You never know when a leprechaun might be packing gold throwing stars.

Anyway, I got a cinnamon crunch bagel and it made my paws and face all sticky. After a quick bathroom stop to clean up, we headed to the outlets for our first shopping experience of this trip. It was a success. I can't wait for you to see my new shirt. Mom and Dad are so nice to me. I guess they felt bad about CBJ last night.

After that, we headed to Wal Mart to stock up on breakfast stuff and beverages. I got Peanut Butter Captain Crunch! Those of you who are my friends on Facebook know that I tried Peanut Butter Cheerios last week. No good. I went for the good stuff this week.

Then it was to Wetzel's for our first pretzel of the trip. They have a new apple pie pretzel. We will definitely try that at some point this trip, but I wanted to start with an original. Nothing like carb loading for the day.

After a quick stop at SSR to drop off our groceries, we are headed to Epcot for the afternoon. I'm excited for F&G and TT!

I'll be checking in via FB throughout the day.

In the meantime, here's the view from our room!

Looks like you're all having a great time! We've never done CBJ and you have now just convinced me to NEVER EVER set foot in that attraction! Thank you for your sacrifice! The weather looks perfect! it's cold, cloudy and snowy up here! Can't wait to hear about your afternoon at Epcot!

Sounds like a great day. Your view looks very peaceful! I hope that you enjoy your PB Crunch this week. Like Chellymouse, I'm grateful you took one for the team. The difference, however, is I'm grateful you told me about PB Cheerios instead of CBJ!
