When I have a boyfriend those bracelets are a must! They are so cute! For those of us born into Disney families it's crazy that some people can possibly think that it is boring!! I mean Disney is anything but boring. Glad he changed his mind

I was so excited when we got them! & I know! I couldn't believe he had never been there, I had begged him for years to go, I was so excited when he finally said yes & now we're going back in 55 days! :D

Chapter 8: Who Would've Guessed... More Rain?

I was awoken the next morning by a very cheerful Mickey Mouse.
I once again, got up & UNNECESSARILY straightened my hair.

I had some delicious breakfast essentials...


Then I woke Ryan up. Forced him to take yet some more mirror pictures.
It became sort of a daily thing.

Clearly, he wasn't awake yet..



We were out the door about 15 minutes later at 8AM!

Our bus pulled up as soon as we got to the bus stop.
We were on a roll with these buses!


Where were we headed today?
EPCOT!

The air was so damp from the constant torrential downpour that as soon as we stepped off the bus, my hair unstraightened.
You'd think I would give up by now, but no.
I had just gotten it cut that when I tried to put it in a ponytail, half of it stayed down. UGH! THE STRUGGLE!

We took some more pictures & then got some more PP pictures taken.


See the soaking wet ground?!



What a gloomy looking sky.
BUT WE CARRIED ON!






Tink!


After our photoshoot, we decided to go on Spaceship Earth first!
All I could think about was smelling Rome..
I can almost smell it now.
Perfection.
UGH.

Everytime Kelly(WHO IS MAKING HER APPEARANCE SOON!) & I ride we ALWAYS take a picture of our favorite lady.

We love her & cry from laughter everytime.

After we got off we decided to go to the Land!
Once we got in & I stood there in my happy daze for a minute, we decided we were hungry!
Sunshine Seasons here we come!
I love this picture.


We both decided to get a chicken Caesar salad.
HOLY MOTHER OF ALL DELICIOUS SALADS.
I dream of that salad to this day.
Ohmygosh, it was so crispy & fresh & amazing.
& the best part?
I actually got a picture of it!

YUMMMMM!
We also got some desserts.
I had mousse & A LOT of it.
I think Ryan got a little bit of everything.
I wish I had pictures of that.


After we were done eating, we decided to go on Soarin'!
The standby line said 25 minutes.. I didn't really believe it but we tried anyways.
We ended up waiting about 35, but oh well.
There were these little Hispanic boys in front of us, full on boxing eachother.
The one couldn't have been any older than 4 was kicking his brothers butt!
It was insane to watch, the parents just didn't even notice.
At one point the older brother started to cry.
But then he suddenly just shoved his brother to the ground.
So there was that.

We were excited!

YAY!

Ryan of course loved it. Who doesn't?
I smell the oranges now. yummmmm.

After that we headed over to good old Ellen.
Again, Kelly & I have another joke.
We will just randomly text eachother & say "Stupid Judy" or "Stupid Ellen".
Universe of Energy time!

The next show was in 10 minutes, so we just sat on the ledge & waited.
Recorded some more video & took a few pictures.





We were let inside & there was barely any one around us so we sat on the back ledge.



As we were sitting an older couple came over & sat next to me.
Then a HUUUUGE group came in, they looked Indian.
They all stood directly in front of us, & how do I say this without sounding entirely rude..
It had seemed like they had forgotten their shower this morning..
Then out of no where the woman sitting next to me got up & walked towards them & said,
"If you could just go stand on the other side of the room so I am able to breathe, that would be great!"
I just stared for a minute unsure of what their reaction would be.
They eventually moved after an intense 5 minute staredown.

Ryan & I got up & walked toward the front when the movie started.

I have always had a special place in my heart for this ride because when I was younger, I remember a specific time that I was sitting on my dad's shoulders, & the part when Ellen says, "You, yeah you, I like your haircut." I had always thought she was speaking to me. Lame I know, but I was young & it had completely made my day. hahahah, uhhh, funny times.

After our LOOOOONG ride we went to exit & saw a MONSOON outside.
I mean, we thought it had rained yesterday on the safari? That was nothing.
It was completely pouring.
We stood under the awning for about 15 minutes, then realized the rain wasn't slowing down at all.
So I just looked at Ryan & said, "Ready?"
Before he could even answer, I took my flip flops off & took off running towards Mission: SPACE.
I might as well have been swimming.
The puddles came up past my ankles, it was absolutely insane.


S O A K E D .

We rode Mission: SPACE the Orange side.
I ended up getting really nauseous & felt that way the rest of the day.
Ugh. No more space for me please.

We had been on the hunt for ponchos for a while but couldn't find them anywhere!
In the store at Mission: SPACE we finally found some ridiculously expensive ponchos, but we needed them. The rain had still not let up.

Since I was feeling sick we decided to take a walk around the world.
However when we got to Norway, I just couldn't pass up my favorite ride!

MAELSTROM!


We opted out of the inspirational movie, but just this once!

At this time, we realized it was time for our ADR!
We headed on over to another country, but which one?

Before we got there though, I had to take a picture with the Snow White topiary!

Poncho. Haha.

Up next.. DINNER!


Real Life Update!

Continued Trip Report!

Talking Non-this trip report update!

OH.MY.GOD.
So this isn't an update going with this trip report, but it is absolutely necessary.
I WON A FREE CRUISE & VACATION ON A RADIO CONTEST TODAY!

I wish it was a Disney cruise, but that's okay!
I get a 3 day 2 night cruise to the Bahamas!
Before the trip, I also get a 3 day 2 night stay in Fort Lauderdale.

If that wasn't already perfect enough, here is where the magic comes in..

Now, I could stay in the Bahamas for 3 days & then cruise on back to Florida... OR.
Once the cruise arrives in the Bahamas, I get to spend a day on the main island, & then leave the next day with the ship & go back to Florida,
& since I wouldn't spend the 3 days in the Bahamas, I get to spend the 3 days 2 nights in.....

ORLANDO!!!!!!!

In the Marriott hotel, not on Disney property, but PRETTY MUCH RIGHT THERE.

OF COURSE I AM GOING WITH THE SECOND OPTION.
DISNEY!? HELLO!?

& all my meals are taken care of, I am literally paying for nothing except the Disney park tickets (worth it) & my souvenirs.

The total vacation is upwards around 3600$ & I'm only paying 50$ for the port fee.. WHICH I MEAN C'MON.
50$ for a 3600$ vacation?
Of course I'll do that.

I still can't even believe it.
The date isn't set yet, but I just wanted to let everyone know.
I am so excited & blessed.
I can't stop crying.

Of course I can't wait for the cruise, but an extra few days in Disney this year?! HECK YES!


BTW 54 DAYS TIL MY DISNEY TRIP!
CAN'T WAIT FOR THAT AT ALL.

Okay, enough with the shouty capitals.
I'm just so excited!


I'm working on the next update now!
Thanks for reading!


Back to the action!

Oh my goodness, that salad looks amazing!!! I love chicken caesar salads, but they have to be just right... like at Panera. THAT ONE LOOKS PERFECT! Yum.

STUPID JUDY.

Omg... I can't believe the woman who basically told the people they smelled bad! Wouldn't it have been easier for HER to move? Yikes!!!

Ugh no more rain!

Chapter 9: Bonjour Magical Chocolate Mousse

Our ADR was for 6:30 at...


Gotta love this place.

Ryan was excited clearly...


We checked in around 6:20 & were seating in about 10 minutes, so basically right on time!

We were all the way to the far left of the restaurant,
I absolutely loved our table because we were next to windows & every time a character would be going to meet they would walk by our window on the way to their designated spot.
We saw Belle, the Beast, Marie, & one more that I can't remember right now.
They all waved to me when I freaked out at them walking by, especially Belle<3
That just added a little bit of extra magic.
Oh Disney<3 The little things.

We took a few questionable pictures at the table..





I think I was dancing a little..



So proper!

Then our waitress came, her name was Emily.
She was EXCEPTIONAL.
In our video, we actually give her a shoutout because she was so incredible.
She was efficient & always kept our drinks filled & took our picture & joked with us.
Service receives a 5/5, just because she was so perfect.

But anyways, she took our orders & our food came out in no time at all.
I don't remember what the exact name of my dish was, but here is a picture.

What I do remember is that the broccoli & potatoes were PERFECT.
The broccoli was so fresh & delicious, NOM.
Sadly, I didn't get a picture of Ryan's dish, but he got some steak thing.
IT WAS PERFECT
I think I stole about 7 bites of the steak, so juicy & tender & OMG.

Then we asked Emily to take our picture & she goes,
"No." & walked away.
I just kind of sat there for a second confused.
& then she turned around laughing hysterically & said, "Of course!"
What a doll.



She said, "Say 'Mickey!'"


Then we got Espressos.
YUM YUM YUM.

You should know one thing about me,
I LOVE COFFEE!
Like completely.
Can't live without it.
Any type of coffee.
Give it here.
Mine.
NOM.
YUM.




YUM.



After we finished our incredible espressos it was time for...
the dessert that changed my life.


The Chocolate Mousse..
I have dreams of this mousse.
I've never in my life had anything better than this mousse.
If you go to Les Chefs de France,
GET THE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE!


Ryan got the Crème brûlée, & he raved about it.
SO GOOD.
I was too excited by my mousse to take a picture of Ryan's dessert.
I apologize.

Then Emily brought out our check....

HOLY MOTHER OF GOD.

My jaw just hit the ground.
But it was so completely worth it.
& Emily completely deserved her tip.

We paid, thanked Emily again & made sure to tell her she was the best waitress we've had, & she told us that we made her whole night.

Overall Rating of Les Chefs de France
Service: Incredible, Emily was perfect! 5/5
Food: THE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE itself get's a 100/100, but everything else including Ryan's entree receives a 4.5/5, my chicken skin was a little burnt, but everything else was great.
Atmosphere: I loved where we were seated, it was almost separate from the main area, & the window with the characters walking by was just a little extra touch to make it perfect. 5/5

Where to next?

NEXT!

I KNOW. It's hilarious!

Aww you're so welcome! I enjoy your TR, it's definitely worthwhile! Sometimes I think it just takes a while for people to find TRs!

Mmm... sounds like a wonderful meal!!! HAHAHA, I now know why you had to make mousse today. Yum yum! Yall's pictures are cracking me up, by the way. I would have been taken aback by that price if I were you too! Yikes! But at least you said it was worth it!
