Oh man, I hope we can keep our designs from Test Track. That was my boys' favorite part of the ride.

Love Kathy's shirt in your picture with her! We re-enact that scene often with the kids!

Here's hoping you LOVE Yacht Club!! I know we loved the Beach Club this June!

I almost missed your update... Yah - not a huge fan of TT anymore either. So sad. The girls and I didn't even bother building our vehicle - we just rode single rider, and I am glad we did... This definately solves our main issue in Epcot... Left or Right for morning FPs... Although - FP+ is going to solve that issue for sure by our next trip anyways. LOL

It looks like you had a great day in WS... We have only seen the American Adventure show once - and I doubt that we will be going back... Not that we didn't enjoy it - but when all three of us end up sound asleep in the back row... Well... It's just too comfy and too dark for us tired park goers. LOL

Can't wait to hear about your check in.

Hi Brenda! Coming to you from the airport this morning! What better way to pass the time until disney then by dising?
I'm interested to see the new test track, even if everyone agrees it's not much improvement. I'm not a lover of change either and for the record, I also preferred he first Darren on Bewitched! Hehehe
Another Dismeet? Awesome! Your seats in San Angel are awesome, I've always wanted to eat there just for the atmosphere!
Can't wait to see your next room!

I'm loving all the DIS meets you've done so far on this trip. It's nice to see how friendly the DIS community can be!

San Angel looks so good. How funny that you got to see KatMark sail by!

Is an amazing upgrade in store again for YC? Hahaha!

UGH, Test Track...Why did they have to mess with a good thing?! I gave it a shot on our trip, and just as suspected, I don't see the point of the new attraction at all. It is also pretty silly to be able to use your MB to design the car but they don't tell you that anywhere!!

The atmosphere in the Mexican pavilion is probably my favorite of all the pavilions! Never eaten at the restaurant, but it looks like you and Em had a lovely view!

I did the American Adventure for the first time a few years ago, and it was really lovely! We haven't the past few trips because I think DS would be too antsy and loud in there, so I look forward to being able to check it out again when he is a little older.

Brenda, Thanks for raising a great son that serves our great country!

I promise to get caught up soon. I should have known I couldn't take time away from the dis when reading the most popular thread. (I don't know where you ended this month.)

I guess I'll be in the minority and say that I like the new Test Track. I like designing a car and I'm really glad that the lame pre-show is gone now. The part with the car speeding outside is still the same, so all is good in my opinion.

Darren #1 all the way!! I still miss Mr. toad in wdw so... Yay for nice people passing their fast passes on to people instead of pitching them! I love smart travelers.

Yay the American adventure! That just makes my nerd side so happy!!

I may have to try this restaurant... If there is any place that can convince me not to be crazy picky, it's wdw! It looks so nice. I heard it's cramped, but it think the atmosphere would make up for it.

I have yet to try Sum of all Thrills - one of these days! We tend to gloss over things because of height requirements. The girls still have quite a few inches to go for that one!!

I loved your pictures of AKL - they are really getting me excited for our few nights there in Jan!!

SAI looked like a good time (minus not being able to see you in the one photo!) - So being the DIS idol that you are - when you guys go to the parks you always run into someone don't you!?

I don't mind an early alarm during Disney vacations. It's accidentally forgetting to set an alarm the night before is what upsets me the most!

Would love to visit Boma one day! Not sure if the food would be a little too out there for DM, but it looks like you had 'normal' food, so I think she would be okay!

Awesome score on the TT FP's! And i'm with you on TT. Prefer the old version.

DH refuses to eat at San Angel Inn! I would just love to go there for the atmosphere of it. It definitely reminds me of BB at DLR.

Need to see the American Adventure show (writing that down in my mind, which i'm sure is not the best place to be kept since i'm tired...)

What to do next? We decided to leave Epcot so we could check into YC. But not so fast since we had all of WS to circumnavigate to get to the International Gateway. We stopped at the American Pavilion and caught the end of the Voices of Liberty performance - specifically, their rendition of the National Anthem. Then we headed upstairs for the American Adventure show. No matter how many times I see this I still shed a tear or two.
It choked me up too!
