Welcome back!

Sounds like a great morning at Blizzard Beach! I can never quite get comfortable enough in a lazy river to really enjoy it as much as I want to - I usually end up half-walking. And I've lost a tube or two in my time as well.

LOVE that they have foot-cooler sprinklers! What a great idea

I'm pretty sure you couldn't pay me enough to go on summit plummet, so I certainly don't blame you for not waiting in that line! But Teamboat Springs sounds like a blast.

That was so nice if you to offer your spot in line to the little boy behind you in line! And I'm glad you got you pic too! In a related note, my 3yo said was just looking over my shoulder, "mommy, I saw Goofy!" Clearly, he's a fan

Good job knocking out a couple must-dos off the list - have to make room for new items on a new list - but sorry the school bread and margarita were a bit disappointing wel, I guess the school bread was just under-whelming but the margaritas sounded just gross! Oh well!

Hmmm, is this thing still going on??? (Sorry, I had to).

I've not been to any of the Water Parks, so it's always a treat to hear about it. But OH.. MY... LORD, those rules. Just the fact that these things need to be written out makes be seriously uneasy about ever going. It leads me to believe that these things have happened in the past. That #1 alone is enough to send me back to Everest.

Oh my word, even at a Disney water park a fight breaks out. I like your idea with the glass slipper. In fact, ALL future altercations world wide should be handled this way.

AWWWW see, that's what happens when you're actually polite and giving. SO nice of you to give your spot to the little. And then to be rewarded with a picture yourself. Lovely.

Maelstom.. The wettest ride in Walt Disney World!!

Welcome back! From what I could tell via Facebook it seems like you had a good time with your hubby. And I'm loving the updates.

I haven't done Blizzard Beach since 1996 but when I did it I had a blast. We haven't done them yet because Olivia has issues with her ears and won't get her head wet. No sense in paying for something we just won't use. Lol

Welcome back!

We have just never made time for either of the water parks, but I guess when you have the benefit of time on a long trip, it makes sense to venture to one of them. Those pool rules are a bit frightening, because...well, not everyone thinks the rules apply to them! I bet if I knew more of what happens in public pools, you couldn't catch me within ten feet of one. So sweet of you to offer up your spot for surfer Goofy and be rewarded! Disney karma at its finest.

That margarita does look good from the picture! Such a shame when you spend so much on a drink or snack that looks SO good and ends up being a disappointment. At least the school bread was okay, even if it wasn't as amazing as some DISers would lead you to believe. I do like coconut, but the custard is not something I think I'd enjoy, so I've never felt the need to try it.

Looking forward to more of this TR, and of course want to read about your December trip next!

I'm so pleased you got to go to BB, it's our very favourite water park, we even have our own touring plan for it

My tip for the lazy river is to put the ring over your head then get your knees through followed by your feet - no danger of missing the tube then

Your afternoon sounded lovely and I'm glad you managed to tick some things off your must do list even if they weren't that great!

Welcome back Brenda!
Can't wait hear more about your trip but it sounds like you will be starting the December TR first :-)
What a lovely morning at BB. We've only ever been to Typhoon Lagoon but had a great time there. We may give a water park a go next trip, not sure yet
How sweet of you to offer up you spot the meet Goofy to the other family :-)
Yummy, Tokyo Dining is always a winner
Try the cucumber margarita next time, it's nowhere near so sweet and super refreshing

Welcome back!!
I like the idea of bus roulette!!! Especially when indifferent about the water parks... I had to laugh though at your second guessing! I feel like that would be me!

I had school bread on my to do list for he last trip... But like Em, I'm not a coconut fan... So I skipped it!

Great updates!

Welcome back Brenda, and glad you enjoyed som quality time with your husband. Nothing against Em, but why should she get all the fun?

We prefer Blizzard Beach so you won Disney Bus Roulette in my eyes. Just like the theming and slides more - though the wave pool at Typhoons Lagoon.

That was gutsy to ride Maelstrom sans poncho!

Great report of your time at Blizzard Beach! I feel like you don't hear much about the waterparks in TRs! But OMG to the girl fight -- eek!!

Full day already! Glad you got to check a few things off your to-do list!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.... Um, yeah, wasn't sure quite how to express my concern over the "rules" at Blizzard Beach but alas! Rob has done so for me!!!

Glad to hear that you crossed some "must dos" off your list... Just sorry they didn't live up to the hype! I've had mostly yummy but sometimes dry school bread so maybe you got a rare dud? at any rate, for tackling your list. The avocado margarita sure looks pretty though! As does it's holder

Awe man! I've somehow misses so many updates!!!

Lovely KTTK reviews!! How weird that you weren't allowed any cameras at all, that's odd!! AND AS IF YOU GOT TO SEE BTY IN REHEARSALS!!!! We saw hoedown going out into Frontierland but nothing else back there aside from empty floats!! UGH! lol

Tea looks lovely, it's something I'll have to check out one of these days!

Same with the waterparks! I'm thinking that will get done when I'm living down there lol! I'm not huge into waterparks, but they're fun enough!

I have to agree in not really liking the school bread,….maybe it's all the Tim Hortan's up here, but I wasn't a fan! The avacado margarita though!??! SO YUMMY!!

GREAT update and loved the BB pics! I can't believe we purchased the PAP and will probably not make it to either of the water parks.

Welcome back from your trip, Brenda!

You know, for the longest time not having been to BB whenever I saw the picture of the Summit Plummet I really thought that the ornamental slide was the real deal and people flew off it into a pool below. Of course now I know that the Disney lawyers would never have green lit such a slide.

The pool rules picture you took made me chuckle knowing that all of those rules are in place to prevent practically one single organism/infection which is also the reason I get extra grossed out when I see those signs by the pools. Somedays I wish I had picked a different subspecialty than infectious diseases.
