    Wow, I know I'm back...
    I still can't find my card with all my Disney pictures... but I had some done by Walmart and realized that by copying them in Photobucket I was able to transfer them here...
    My sister has a copy of my card on CD so when she is not busy she will send it back to me ha! ha!
    Sorry for the long long long wait...

    We decide to go to Hollywood Studios before the week-end. I thought that way we might have more of a chance to see the new Star Wars and HSM shows. As soon as we entered the park, we headed to see the Jedi show beside Star Tours. My son really wanted to be picked to go on stage (like any other child). But a couple with their son ended up in front of my son, standing up the entire time, pushing their son to be picked. So all my son could do was peeked his head in between their shoulders and wave... It was a miracle that he was picked...

    I was excited and got the perfect shot to put up in his Star Wars room! :banana: :banana:

    After that amazing show, we headed to Star Tours and did it twice without any wait.

    As we finished the ride, we noticed that HSM was going to start and we watched that one also and made my DD happy. The 2 major attractions that we came in for was done.

    We walked around and took some fabulous pictures.

    May 8th Part 2

    After HSM, I noticed since the beginning of the trip that my video camera was on the fritz... I tried buying new film, everything, it would record for a little and then give me some flashes of light.
    I found someone in Hollywood, who told me to take out my batterie and re-place it in again and to open my door, so happens that each time I would go into a ride and my camera cooled down from the air conditionning and then I would try to film outside or vise-versa, that would affect the camera. I did so and did not have too much trouble after that.

    My son wanted to see Muppet 3D. He found it really funny

    We walked and took in the sights, so often we just run to our destination (like I did this morning)and forget to just watch and listen...
    [​IMG]

    I did some shopping and bought myself a fabulous Mickey bracelet.

    By then the kids were tired and very hot, so we decided to go back to the resort and go for a swim and have supper at Olivia's
    My DD had the Chicken Ceasar, it's to die for.... YUMMM
    [​IMG]

    My DSis and DMom and I had the special of the week, Meat loaf with gravy and mushrooms... it was huge and very very good
    [​IMG]

    My son had a spaghetti, but I did not take a pic of it... don't know why?

    After the meal, we all headed to the pool, the kids took it easy and we had a little drink by the pool, till the sun set and we ended up taking a cruise to DTD, it was a fabulous evening.

    Today we got up late and took our time. We are going to the Princess and Pirate party tonight, so we want to be rested for the event, we want to have a long and fun evening.
    We took our breakfast on the porch as usual, but today instead of cute golfers playing, we were greeted by a huge turtle. It made it's way on the lawn and for a minute I thought it was going on the porch just below us.
    [​IMG]

    We watched the turtle for about 30 minutes, finishing our breakfast and then relax at the resort, fully taking advantage of the restaurants and pool.
    We put on our costumes and headed to Magic Kingdom around 4pm.
    [​IMG]

    We enjoyed a quick bite at Peco Bills, and cooled down for a while. It was scorching hot out there.

    When we got out, that part of the park was in the shade, we entered Pirates, Haunted Mansion without any wait, we took pictures and got some beads.

    We noticed a lot of people still in the park without bracelets, but buy 7pm, all the entrances to the rides were blocked off by CM, only letting people with bracelets in and directing others without them to the exit. Needless to say, some people were very upset and argued with the CMs to let them pass.

    We did a lot of attractions without any wait... my DD and I rode Big Mountain Railroad 4 times without getting off.. it was a great evening.
    The Parade was amazing, just beautiful and magical. The fireworks were also amazing... without any big crowds around... what a special way to experience the park.

    We left the park around 11:45 pm

    And my Mom, sister and I took this fabulous plate, it was a brunch plate, very good.
    [​IMG]
    After the meal, we walked around the resort, did a little shopping, and exploring outside, what a beautiful resort.

    We then walked around Magic Kingdom and did one last time our favorite attractions, then headed back to OKW. The kids wanted to enjoy the pool once again before our departure the next day.
    I feel so sad on that last day, the kids too and they want to do everything and take in the scene.

    We had reservations for a late supper at Rainforest Cafe... we started our trip with that restaurant and wanted to end with it too. We had a great meal.
    Kids pizza

    Our return Home :sad1:

    We got up early and waited for the bus to take us back to the airport. I was so sad, I really enjoyed myself there and did not want to go back home.

    We took some pictures at the airport and headed for our gate.

    [​IMG]

    We had a direct flight from Orlando to Syracuse, NY, we arrived to our final destination and still had a 3 hours drive to Ottawa, Ont. Canada.
    As we entered the van, it would not start, then I noticed that I had left the plug on for the portable Dvds.... aaah! NO!!!! Then it dawned on me, just before we arrived at the airport some 10 days before, my sis mentionned, "Just get us to the airport, then if the anything happens, it's after the trip and we could deal with it".... WELL, we had to deal with it now, in our haste and excitement to leave for Disney, I did not check the plugs ...
    Oh! well, she called her CAA and they came and replaced the battery, because it was old and not sure if we turned off the van, that it would start up again... This took well over an hour and then we were off...
    The rest of the trip was smooth sailings all the way to Ottawa. ha! ha!
    I can't wait to go back and make more memories, and have other adventures.
    ...:dance3:
