Fun!

Hi there! Joining in a little bit late... but better late than never! I LOVED seeing about the character explosion (lol... forgot the technical term...) that you knew about at Hollywood Studios (MGM - I feel the same!) Where do you go to check into this? I might be a blog newbie... haven't heard of that yet.

LOVED seeing the yummy food at the Norway Princess breakfast! That might just be how we see the princesses on our Spring Break trip... I have a feeling the lines for character interactions might a bit long for that trip

LOVING your report! Thanks so much for sharing!!

Hi Cass,

Great updates! You got to meet a whole bunch of different characters!

That chicken at PT looks great, shame you didn't enjoy it.

Love the interaction between Kira and Stitch, what happy memories for you all

One day we'll have to get to Prime Time. It sounds like a ton of fun! That meatloaf looked pretty good though. Did it take almost an hour to get like mine did on the Fantasy?

We had Mark in 2005! He was the BEST! I saw him that day, he was still there, he must love his job

Yeah, just a few huh?

I think next time, I won't even make an autograph book. I feel like all we did was characters, which is fine because she's scared of most rides and she loved the characters but next time, we will be branching out a little

Totally creepy, right? He is all cute and funny in the movies but in person he is quiet and creepy and that big eye ball just staring at you

Thanks VERY happy memories!!!

Yeah, the food looked good, which is why I wanted to try it because I've seen it in a million trip reports! The chicken was very dry though. But Rob's chicken was moist and he loved it!

Hahahah, thankfully, no! It was very dry and tasted WAY too barbecue-y If you go, ask for Mark

Hi! I will go ahead and admit that I am a bit of a lurker on the disboards, but I have started to post more lately. I think it is because my trip is coming up in less than a month! Anyway, your trip report is awesome so far! Kira is around the same age as my nieces and seems to like the same things they do! I love all of the character meets that yall got to see during characterpalooza. I have always heard about it but I never know what time they are supposed to come out! And, I will always call DHS MGM too! Anyway, can't wait to read more!

Day 4 Part 6 - Dropping butterflies

After the whole Great Movie Ride debacle, we decided it was time to take a break!



Kira and her Daddy shared some popcorn while we sat in the shade.

Then we did something that was more Kira's style...



It's a cute show but once every ten years is good for me

Since we were right there, we popped into the line for Sofia the First. I went and grabbed a little treat for us to share. Unbelievably, it was our only sandwich during the entire trip!



These are Photopass pics as my camera was doing something weird and wouldn't let me take pics!





Next up was our FP on Toy Story



Once again, I creamed everyone



By then, Rob and I could barely move our arms We both said, that's enough Toy Story for one day

It was time for supper. We weren't extremely hungry so we just grabbed some chicken strips...well, Rob grabbed them while I headed over to Tower of Terror to see if I can get a regular FP with my room card, which I could





While they finished up, I headed over to ride my fave ride!



It was totally awesome, as usual

It would have been so much more fun if I could enjoy it with my whole family but there is no way Kira was going to ride this! Remember, she hates butterflies and this ride is ALL butterflies

While I was dropping butterflies, my family were getting these...





I will review these in the next chapter

I met up with them in the TOT store and then we swapped and Rob went on the ride.

Next up...Fantasmic

Rob asked them again to quit it with the swearing reminding him that the area was full of little kids. This guy was just a complete jerk and just got louder and more offensive. At this point, I had just turned back around away from them, cuddling Kira in my lap and covering her ears with my hands.

I told Rob to just leave it alone as these idiots obviously didn't care about how their actions affected those around them.

And he did.

Leave them alone.

Until he smelled smoke.



For those of you who haven't read my previous trip reports, let me explain to you something about my husband...

He is not a big guy, 5'7" and doesn't look the least bit intimidating but he will stand up to anyone for what he believes in.

If sees someone, anyone being picked on, he will step in and say something.

And when it comes to his family, well, you can guess what he's like.

When we are at WDW, I call him the smoking police

When he sees someone smoking in a NON smoking area, he always stops. At first he is very polite and reminds them that this is a non-smoking area. Then he will even point them in the direction of a smoking section or if they are really stubborn, he will find the nearest cast member and tell them about the situation. Unfortunately, most CM's won't do anything about it but he always tries! He hates seeing people smoke near kids.

He is allergic to smoke as is Kira. And ever since my bout with Lupus pneumonia, I am extremely sensitive to it and if I am close enough, I start having trouble breathing. Normally I just move, no big deal but I couldn't exactly move this time.

So you can probably guess what was about to happen, as he spun around and that one guy had a cigarette in his hand

I think because of the whole swearing situation, Rob skipped the polite part altogether and went straight for the "If you don't put that out now, I will get security!" part!

This guy was such a butthead and after blowing smoke directly towards us, Rob kinda lost it.

I have never seen Rob so mad in 17 years! It was escalating and I didn't like where it was leading to. He was about to go get security but I talked him out of it. I reminded him that the show was about to start in 5 minutes and that if he left he would miss out on the joy of watching his favourite show with Kira.

That kinda of snapped him out of it.

I said (very loudly) that these people are determined to be jerks and that we shouldn't let them ruin our night. I said let's just turn around and enjoy the show together and pretend they didn't exist.

And so we did.



Mostly.


.

I did turn around near the end to snap a photo of these ignorant twits so that that my (DIS) peeps will know who they are


The guy in question is the one on the far left who had a few tattoos on him. The part Cass missed was that when he walked off with his cigarette to put it out on the cement instead of the garbage, he was even more foul mouth than before.
To top it off, as we walked back towards our respective groups, he challenged me to a fight! I'm bewildered at this statement and I'm about to lose it, seriously, I haven't wanted to throttle someone so bad since I was a teenager.
Then, it was like you are so not worth it and you're so intoxicated even if you were a UFC person you'd lose because you don't have any sense about you.

Then I think, well there would go the vacation, then banned from the USA.
I tell the guy he wouldn't stand a chance and walk away but then he goes "you have no right to be here anyways, you're not even from our country".
Yup, Thank You Lord for granting me patience.
I can't imagine what it would be like to get into a fight in a place like WDW and I don't ever want people like that around my family ever again.

It's a shame there isn't a better way to get Security to take out the trash sometimes.

It's a good thing you didn't Rob! Nate's friend is banned from the States because he got into a fight at a hockey game after some goofballs knocked out his dad. His dad ended up in hospital with a brain swell and he ended up in jail over night! That was about 15 years ago now. That was a crazy story. It's not uncommon for fights to happen at games but Epcot... that would have been an even crazier story!

Howdy folks

Sorry to leave you all hanging with no updates but I ended up at the Emergency Room last Friday with pneumonia. Rob and Kira have it too but it hit me a little harder apparently

I am now on my second round of antibiotics and have an inhaler now so I am just starting to feel better now.

I will try to do an update soon-ish

Here's healing pixie dust for the three of you!

So sorry you got pneumonia and your family too!
Don't worry about updates, we will be here when you have recovered.
