CONGRATS TO EM AND HER GUY!!! How exciting for you all!

We sat at the exact same table as you guys at CRT. We really want to go back and try dinner someday as breakfast was weak. Hopefully we can score that same table and view of Wishes!

Congrats! That is exciting news and I hope you and Em have a great time making wedding plans! If it's at Disney, I think all of your loyal followers should be invited... ;-)

Awwww! Congratulations to your family!!! I was married at 19 as well, my husband is 9 months older than I am. We have been married for almost 16 years! We still did all of the things our friends were doing in our 20s, we just did them together! I think it was a lot less stressful! When everyone else had the drama of finding/meeting/falling in love/breaking up......., we had each other! It was great! It will be so exciting for you to help plan the wedding...I hope we get to hear details!!!

Finally caught up!!!

Yahh!! I just LOVED reading this TR so far!! I can't believe that I finally was able to get caught up but all those links helped me so much and your dining reports are great! I've only been to Disneyland because I used to live in Torrance but now I live in Phoenix so I can't go as often. Congrats on your daughter's engagment!!!

Thanks Paula. We knew he would ask first, that's the kind of young man that he is! And he knew it was important to Michael to give his blessing if he felt it was ok.

We will all be excited to hear about the wedding plans as they progress throughout the year, and I'm so glad to hear that there are still more mother-daughter trips in your future!
Thank you Dee! Definitely we're not done with our mom/daughter trips.

Thank you Wendy! As young as they are they are a bit traditional which we don't have a problem with. Her fiancé did very well with the ring.

Ha ha!! I'm glad I was able to answer some questions. I'm trying to balance what's too much information to share here. I realize it's a little different than FB.

I'm so glad you guys will be continuing your Mother Daughter trips! After going on my first one in Feb, I'm already looking forward to the next!
Thank you Jess! It is a gorgeous ring.

Awwww I'm sure your mom appreciates your trips as much as you!

Thanks Kathy! Glad you are caught up! Was it cold in February? This was the first February in several years that we didn't make it to WDW. Bummer but I can't go 5 times a year.
We were only there for a few days of our FL visit, February 23 - 26, but we had sunshine and temperatures in the middle 70's to low 80's each day. And the weather was the same during the preceding week on Sanibel Island with the exception of a foggy early morning or two.

It was a cruel shock to return to the third polar vortex of the season here in SE Michigan the night of the 26th.
I'll say that's a vast difference in temps! That is the time that we went last year when it had a high of 80 one day and then a low of 35 when we left. Stay warm!

That's so great how she still wants to go on Disney trips with her mom and made a point of letting you know that. So thoughtful. You raised her well.
Thank you Timmy! I'm so glad that she wants to continue our trips.

You're so sweet, thanks.

Big props for going the old fashioned route and asking permission too. I genuinely love that.

And of course, who's heart didn't melt (MINE DID) at the proclamation that the Mother/Daughter/(Granddaughter???) adventures will continue.
Thank you so much for your most sincere congrats! It is appreciated

There was this little image that my hubby texted to Em and her fiancé as a joke several weeks prior...


The next text we got from Em was a photo of her hand with the ring!!!!

Thanks, I'm looking forward to continued girl trips.

They look like an adorable couple and I wish them all the best.
Thank you so much. They do grow up fast so we're glad that they are planning this with some thought and consideration knowing they have a lifetime ahead of them.

He is a very lucky young man to be sure. Not only to get Emily but pretty fabulous in laws!

Very glad to hear your trips will continue.
Thanks Cynthia. Believe me, the fact of how young they are was a concern when we knew his intentions. We've seen them fall in love and mature over the last 4 years and they are certainly not done yet. I think the next year will be good for them.

That was the best part of my day when Em shared that she wanted to be the one to take me on her first WDW trip as a married woman.

Thank you Bill! Our prospects of future for grandkids sounds familiar. Em will be my 3rd of 4 kids married. My oldest is getting close and I adore his girlfriend. He's 31 so I would have thought he would have been married before my baby! My middle and youngest sons have no desire for kids right now.

That's awesome that your daughter has a bright career path ahead of her. I'm sure it makes the wait to start a family worth it.

I was 20 and my DH 22 when we got married. Now I am 32 with a graduate degree, a career, a nice house and 3 beautiful children while several of my friends from high school still live with their parents. So it can definitely work out well to marry young.
Thank you so much! I appreciate your comments, they are very encouraging and positive. You have definitely accomplished a lot as a married woman and I'm sure having a husband to support you through all those milestones has been great!

My dad was 21 when he married my mom 50+ years ago. So yeah, it can and does work.

I can't imagine my daughter, who is 18 in July, getting married so young even though I met my husband aged 16, engaged at 19, married at 22 and first baby at 23. This year we're celebrating 25 years together though and are happier than ever.
Thank you so much Jo! Congratulations on 25 years together. That is awesome.

No doubt, 19 is young for being married. However, we are confident this is the right young man for her and if they want to extend their engagement, they won't have any arguments from us.

As much as I want to start planning, Em said that she wants to get school behind her and then we'll start. She's too practical sometimes.

Thank you Phil! I've been mother of the groom for two of my 3 boys so this will be new and exciting to be on the other side of it.

At least you had a positive reaction from your FIL! That would have been awkward to hear, "why do you want to do that?"

I'm going to have to see if astronaut food is for me. Next trip I need to remember to try that freeze dried ice-cream.

Wasn't that a great table? Thankfully, the later dinners should be easier to book and it coincides with Wishes.

Thank you sweetpeaandevie! I like what you said about having your husband to experience life's milestones together. Great truth there when you are with the right person for you.

I'm looking forward to all the planning and seeing Em take the lead on how she wants her important day to look.

Thank you Bebop! I appreciate the kind comments.

I'm glad the links help, it's easier than scrolling through pages... until I mess up a link and then it's a dead end!

So you were a fellow Southern Californian at one time. Phoenix is only about what, 6 hrs further from Disneyland? I can see where it would be a little further commute.

Sunday August 25, 2013: Day 10, Part 2


Following lunch at Le Cellier (and that little incident of Em falling out of her chair - oops!) we watched O’Canada in CircleVision 360.




Here begins my shameless plug for Canada! What a beautiful country. I’ve only been to British Columbia so I can vet that part of the country is as stunning as they show. Eva Avila who sings Canada (You’re a Lifetime Journey) has an amazing voice. That song is so moving that it almost makes me want to be an honorary Canadian. However that may mean that I have to learn the metric system, eat poutine, and speak French so I better retain my current citizenship.


When we exited the show it was that time of day that the storms were moving in. Being the rain wimps that we are we decided to head for the exit. (I know it is tough but please refrain from asking why we travel so far and spend so little time in the parks if we run for the exit every time a little rain falls from the sky.) See, even the CMs are battening down the hatches.






In our perfect timing yet again, it started to rain when we were safely on the resort monorail platform. We had originally planned to go to a water park but the weather had us nix that idea.


We made a brief stop at the Contempo Café for a cupcake. There were not a lot of choices left that late in the day but I picked a Monster’s Inc. funfetti version. I ate ˝ and it was just ok. The Mike W ring embellishment was the best part.




Back in our room I noticed that the dishwasher had been run for the heavy load of dishes that we had dirtied.... NOT! There was one glass that I placed in the sink for which mousekeeping had started the dishwasher.


The absence of photos for the next 3 hours strongly implies that we must have taken a nap. We’re like little kids I tell you. In our defense, we did stay up pretty late and for me at least, I was usually up around 6:30am.


Sunset was lovely over Seven Seas Lagoon. Ignore the parking lot for the above photo. Focus on the already past sunset shot of the sky!

We had a Kona Café dinner at 8:20pm so we hopped on the resort monorail for the 3 minute ride over to the Poly. While we were awaiting the monorail we noticed that we didn’t see Monorail CM "Joe." In fact, we didn't see him all week. (see here for Joe story.) We joked that perhaps Joe was banished to the tram parking lot or as Em suggested just maybe he took the retired Grand Marshal Hosts job. Video to document this exchange is here.
