Every time I read one of your TR's, I am insanely jealous that you live so much closer to WDW than I do.

Beach Club!!!!!!!!!! MY FAVORITE!

Hahahaha. Your DD truly does love Test Track.

Really? Peeing in the bushes at WDW? Come on people!

Mmmmmm. La Cantina nachos.

Sometimes it still seems like it takes forever to get there.

Beach Club!!!!!!!!!! MY FAVORITE!

We LOVED it !! Can't wait to go back !!

Hahahaha. Your DD truly does love Test Track.

She really does.

It was nasty and there was a restroom literally within 50 feet. Disgusting.

Mmmmmm. La Cantina nachos.
They were very yummy !!

Here.
I am telling about the speed limits being broken. LOL
Ooh Beach Club. Nice.
I would have walked by and said the restroom is over there.
I hate the Test Track pre show now. Waste of time I feel.
The room looks great.

Hi Susan! Too bad we didn't have more of an overlap in the timing of our trips otherwise I would have loved to have met up!

That's too funny about that tree - never noticed it! Leave it to a man to have an eye for that.

That's some long lines for Spaceship Earth. It was closed earlier in the week so we had to wait until the day before leaving to ride it.

yeah, I'm another diser that's not such a fan of the new Test Track. I don't care to be locked in a room to design my own car.

Who you gonna tell? You would do it too, in order to get to Disney faster.

It was !! We really loved the resort.

I don't think they spoke English. It was gross.

I hated the other pre-show worse. I don't like the revised ride track. It was more exciting the other way.

The room looks great.
It was good room. We liked it a lot.

I would have liked that, too. I thought about texting you, but I knew you were in MK that day and that we weren't going to make it over there. Someday we will meet up !!

Isn't that the truth? It was funny though.

That's some long lines for Spaceship Earth. It was closed earlier in the week so we had to wait until the day before leaving to ride it.

It went fast. We didn't wait long at all.

There are some cool things about the new ride, but I just liked the older one better.

Day 1 – Part 3

While the boys were resting, DD and I went down to the Marketplace at Beach Club to get some dinner.

They were rolling out the Rapid Refill mugs while we were there



DH's mug deactivated somehow and we had to get it reactivated. For the most part it was OK, but it was a pain at times when it wasn't working right.

DD got the Cheese Flatbread



She gets this on a consistent basis and really seems to like it. A good go to meal for her.

And a red velvet cupcake for dessert



She mostly ate the chocolate decorations and the frosting off of this, but she ate some of the cake part.

DS got the ham sandwich



He loved the chips, but wasn’t too happy with the mustard they put on the sandwich.

And a cupcake for dessert



He said the decorations on this were not tasty but the rest of it was.

DH and I split the Turkey Sandwich



This was good. It had brie on it and it would have tasted better if they had heated it and made the brie all gooey, but still it was a good sandwich.

Plenty for two people.

And the carrot cake for dessert



This was really good.

And last, but not least, we couldn’t pass on the Oreo Bon-Bons



Sooooo good!!

On this evening, we had a Dismeet planned. It started with my friend Tammy. We had been trying to meet up for a couple of trips now and this was the time our trips overlapped enough for us to meet up. Then Tammy’s friend Colleen and her family were coming. And then Tammy and I invited my longtime bestie Lauren and her daughter to come meet us and then, I invited my friends Melissa and her daughter Meg. So it morphed into quite the party. The plan was to meet at the campfire at Fort Wilderness.

We are going on a Disney cruise over Thanksgiving and I had been playing with designs for Fish Extender gifts. So I thought it would be nice to bring my friends some little gifts. Here’s what we brought:

Some tissue holders



I got some dollar store cups and some Disney themed punches







I punched out images from sheets of sticky back vinyl and made these cups







I filled them up with candy and gave them to the big kids.

I made these little coin purses for the ladies







And some crayon rolls for the little guys



I was excited to see my friends and hand out my gifts.

It was a little difficult to get DH moving, but we finally got into the car and headed towards Fort Wilderness where Tammy and her family had a camper set up.

When you go to Fort Wilderness, you have to park at the front of the resort and take an internal bus to where you want to go. So we parked and caught a bus. The driver missed our stop, but that was OK. The next stop we came to we saw Melissa and her daughter Meg !! I knocked on the window and feverishly waved to them and thank goodness they recognized me and didn’t just think I was a crazy person. We exchanged hugs and I handed out gifts. Meg and her mum (this is what Meg calls her mother) just moved to Orlando from Boston. Just picked up and moved. They are super brave if you ask me. They were getting settled in their new place and Meg was starting her new school. She has a TR going about their adventures.

Here’s a link

She’s hilarious. She’s also a great photographer and has some amazing photos to share. Go take a look and say hello.

Up next – our actual Dismeet and Tammy’s awesome camper – the Mickey Mobile !!

Oreo bon bons are the entire reason that I am STOKED to stay at the Beach Club in May. And even if they're booked and we end up at the Boardwalk, I am walking my happy butt over there to get some!

I saw your coin purse posts on FB and I loved them! They're so stinkin' cute.

Awesome that you guys had an epic DISmeet planned! Can't wait to hear about it.

First thing I thought of when you said the boy was peeing in the bush was "I wonder if they were foreign?" I have heard this is a common practice for them for some reason. Seriously? Don't they have bathrooms ...or manners in their country.

Your room looks great! I can't wait to hear about your dismeet!

Aww ... Thanks. They turned out pretty good.

Fun update. But you made me crave dessert after I was so good and didn't have any after our dinner. That Red Velvet cupcake was had by us in June and it was really good.

I can't wait to read all about your DIS meet with Tammy. We missed yet again hooking up.

I think they were foreign. They were certainly speaking a different language. It was just gross though.

We loved our room. Dismeet coming up !!
