    You really must give le cellier a try. If only to see the look on Connor and Chelsea's face when they order a smore or a mouse for desert.

    Hey you've got to get your new trip report in your signature. Got to lure in those readers!

    And Dh thinks he doesn't like to dance. I will have to share my "mambo" reference with him.

    In my previous life (aka before teaching) I was a massage therapist so I've worked at few spas. I always see the cracks in their foundations anyway. Plus it's still hard for me to switch to customer mode so it's probably best I didn't go.

    Well I have already done the whole european tour thing and really just want to do Italy now, well..... maybe Greece also but that's all for now.

    I am talking to my Dsil about something for next summer as she missed doing a 40th birthday trip this year and I missed mine 2 years ago so it's only fair that we should go somewhere together don't you think? I would even take a trip back to florida with her but hey plan large right!! :love:

    My Lord...that ending was a like a bad horror movie...what do you see????? I hope he's asleep. 3 times in one day would start making him think that this behavior could continue AFTER vacation :lmao:

    I do have to back up how badly I feel about the whole Spa thing. I would be ready to kill him I think! ;)

    What is up with the couple at the next table???? They take notes to compare them with who???? :confused3:confused3:confused3

    You didn't get creme brulee???? That makes me sad ;)

    ***Out of Order Picture Alert***​


    Sorry folks, I was able to salvage a few more pictures and I wanted to share one with you even though it belongs back a few chapters.

    Here is Dh and I with our Grey goose slushies.

    [​IMG]

    ***Next Trip Update***​


    Since I'm off topic anyway I thought I would report on our upcoming trip that's like in 6 days!

    If you recall I had upgraded Dh and I from POP to Coronado Springs but it is a secret!

    Then the other day I showed him a picture of the Hippy Dippy Pool.

    "That's it?"

    "I guess staying at a deluxe last time has affected your expectations."


    "If you can believe it, I was even thinking we should go back to AKL again."

    I just smile.

    "What are you smiling about?"

    "I just think it's funny you're turning into a Disney snob that's all."

    But of course you know that wasn't really all. I was thinking he was going to be pretty excited by our surprise resort change.

    I was hoping the credit card statement wouldn't arrive until after we left to give my secret away. Acutally I was hoping that the upgrade was going to be on the next bill. Well I was not so lucky. The upgrade fee is the last item on my bill. Go figure. It just squeaked through.

    Dh opened the bill and went on a small rant about how Disney is costing too much even though we are staying in a Value.

    I held my tongue but I was tempted to tell him.

    I think he's going to be pleased.

    I hope he's going to be pleased.

    Just in case you are wondering I am not putting our luggage on magic express so Dh will not see the name of the resort on our tags.


    ***On with the Report***

    In my last chapter I left off with a cliffhanger. Not really a big surprise I know. We had been to dinner at le cellier (FYI in French they don’t use capitals letters for their nouns like we do in English) and had returned to the room. I was expecting Dh to be awake and want to well… you know… but he surprised me by falling asleep instead. I tucked him in and soon was fast asleep beside him.
    :cloud9:

    Until the alarm woke us up at 7:00 am.
    :scared1:

    The plan was to check out before our breakfast. With the speed of a hurricane and the lungs of a sergeant I had us showered, dressed, packed and arrived at the luggage service desk by 7:40am. This meant that we were even earlier for our ADR for 7:50.

    It was at...


    [​IMG]


    So what does Dh do in those newly found moments?
    :confused3

    Now, get your minds out of the gutters readers.
    :laughing:

    We were in a public place and a family friendly public place at that.

    Dh decided to take a bio break. After all he hadn’t visited these restrooms yet.
    :sad2:

    We were called to our table before he returned. The place was practically empty and I’m not sure why they even made us wait.

    I ordered the juice mixture and a coffee. The coffee was lovely. I still prefer the pressed pot at Kona but I wouldn’t turn my nose up at the BOMA blend.

    The juice was too guavaish for my liking. I’m not a fan of guava. At least I think that was the taste I disliked. Anyhow, I disliked it. But I got a second cup of coffee.

    Here I am with my coffee.

    [​IMG]

    The restaurant was lovely to look at and the food was great. Keep in mind I am not an adventurous eater. Remember I even ordered my steak well-done at le cellier last night.

    Here is my attempt to take a picture of surroundings.

    [​IMG]

    So I stuck to the basic food choices. I took pictures but they died with my last computer. Sigh.

    I particularly love breakfasts. Dh was more adventurous and sampled many new things. Some he liked, some he didn’t but he finds enjoyment in the possibility of new foods. I can't seem to get past the possibility that I won’t like them. It’s not wonder my children are incredibly picker eaters. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and apparently they are plucked from my orchard more so than his.

    However, I don’t remember any apples in this meal and of course the children were at home with their grandparents so I shall try to stay on task.

    We were super quick eating. After all there was hardly anyone there and since it was a buffet there was no waiting to be served.

    Okay so I was super quick. Dh would have returned for a few more courses to get all his money's worth out of Disney that he could but we had a rope drop to get too. After all we had switched our spa day to an extra day at the parks. MGM to be precise.

    “It’s about time we headed for the bus stop.”

    “Yeah okay but first just let me try some of that thing over there.”


    “Okay but hurry up.”

    Dh goes up for a refill. I pick at what is left on my plate and try not to worry about the time.

    “We really have to get going now.”

    “Can I just…”

    “No. You’ve had three plates full. I think you’ve eaten your money’s worth. Let’s go.”

    “Let me just grab a piece of fruit for the road.”

    While he’s going for the fruit he puts some sort of muffin thing in a napkin. Lucky me gets to hold it in my park bag while he starts eating his banana.

    “I’ve just got to go to the bathroom before we leave.”

    “Are you kidding me? Didn’t you just go?”


    “I’ll be quick. Just hold my banana.”

    I start to crack up.

    "Here in public?"

    "What?"

    "You do realize what you just said don't you?"

    And finally it dawned on him too and he burst out laughing as well.

    Even in my pissed off state the humour in that statement got through to me. We both had to sit down for safety reasons.

    We spend a few minutes expanding on the banana jokes.

    :banana::banana::banana:

    Finally we were able to compose ourselves and it was off to Disney Studios (Opps I first wrote MGM and had to erase it) for us.

    I loved Greece. Cindy DD8 has been watching Momma Mia lately and has been asking to go.

    I'm sure it wouldn't be too much of a hardship if your Dsil choose Florida.

    I'm surprised even myself that I didn't get creme brulee. It was very late. The restaurant was closing and I think I might have felt bad about keeping the servers later. Plus I was honestly full. Not sure why I didn't think about taking it to go.

    I think the people at the next table were keeping notes to compare with themselves. I don't know.

    I can't tell you how much Dh is looking forward to this weekend's vacation and it has nothing whatsoever to do with anything Disney. I think I may have set a vacation precident.

    :rotfl2::rotfl2:

    I'm trying to get it done before this weekend. Of course there are a lot of things I'm trying to get done before this weekend.

    I used to order my steak burnt so I have come down a notch.

    Still have no idea about the pretzel bread. But it's good. It's just not necessarily canadian.

    It's Tinkerbelle565 who sees the sleeping Randy. That's her husband's name!:rotfl:

    I'm glad I stood up to my fear (cause really it's not like I ever saw or heard from anyone that was sitting around me) and took the pictures. It's silly to feel silly about it. But I did.

    Six days!!! Wow that snuck up quickly! I do hope DH loves CSR -- it's a fun resort!

    Oh, how I :lovestruc Boma's pressed coffee (I have to flip flop with you and say I prefer it over Kona's ;)) and all its breakfast offerings. Mmmm! I salivate just thinking about it!

    I am going to guess you braved Tower of Terror!

    Since this trip is all about my 40th birthday I thought I would show you how we celebrated Dh's 40th last month. Yes, for those of you doing the math I married a younger man. But only by a few months.

    Dh wanted to have all our family and friends over for a pig roast. We rented jumpy castles and set up a big tent. The weather held and a fun time was had by all. All but the pig that it.

    [​IMG]

    Back to the Report.
    ____________________________________________________

    Once we composed ourselves and disposed of the banana we headed to the bus stop.

    Luck was following us because once again a bus magically appeared. We did have to walk all the way to the actual bus stop before we saw a bus rounding the corner with “Disney Studios” lit up.

    It was 8:40 am when we made it to the studios.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The plan today was to go straight to TSM, do a couple of other rides and get the Jedi robe for our DS6. If Dh had it his way we would have headed to the robes first. Yeah like there is a ton of people parading down to the star wars store to buy merchandise. Like they are going to run out or something. He didn't see the humour in this. I guess I was tired because I did. Or maybe I was just rolling over the funnies from the banana incident at Boma.

    The lineups at the turnstiles were pretty long. However, they only had a few open.

    [​IMG]

    I left Dh in line to go up to the front to grab a times guide. Just as I did that a new turnstile line opened up.

    Yay! :yay:

    I signaled for Dh to join me and I was the 12th person to get through.

    “Boy all your disboards friends would be pretty proud of you right now”

    I checked to make sure Dh was being serious. Cause sometimes he bugs me about the disboards. He doesn’t quite get why I continue posting on the boards or even why I’m writing trip reports. But he seemed to be serious which meant that even he understood what great time we were making.

    In case I hadn’t mentioned it we were making the dash for Toy Story Mania. I was going to get us fastpasses and go on the ride first thing.

    We pushed our way up to the front of the street.

    [​IMG]

    On the right side so we would be closer to TSM. We were about 5 people deep. The show started. A couple from Brazil was chosen. It was kind of cute but didn’t have the same full body happy bubbling Disney feeling that the MK show leaves you with.

    Behind me I noticed a couple from our Keys to the Kingdom tour. We chatted a bit. They are retired and down with their family. They were leaving today but wanted to hit the Rock and Roll coaster and have their final counter service first. They joked that the three for four deal actually cost them more money because they upgraded to AKL (although we didn’t see them). They were sweet and we wished them well as we parted at the shows ending.

    With no strollers or grandparents to slow us down Dh and I managed to get right behind the rope drop people. See them there in the front of my picture. I was so psyched to be that close to the front of the line.:cool1:

    [​IMG]

    I was second in line to get a fast pass for the ride. Our return time was 9:40am.

    With the fast pass in hand off we went onto the ride.

    [​IMG]

    I went for accuracy and tried to hit only the high numbers while Dh was just going for it. He beat me but at least my accuracy was higher than his.

    I wrote down that we went on the Great Movie Ride next. But I think it was the back stage tour. I’m getting them mixed up. It’s the one where they show you the submarine sequence and then the truck on fire. We had waited in line for it as a family before but gave up because the line just seemed way too long. I kind of wish we had just skipped it again today. It just seems really dated. Here's some pictures from it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The best part was walking through the prop area. I could have taken more time in there.

    Then we went to One Man’s Dream. We didn’t stay for the movie. Dh was itching to get to Star tours. Remember we still had to buy that Jedi robe. The robe was the whole reason we were even in the park today. He wanted to go straight there but I convinced him we needed to do the Toy Story Mania fast pass thing first.

    We saw the Jedi Training going on when we walked into Star Tours.

    [​IMG]

    It was really the only time I missed my kids. Thinking about how my DS6 would have enjoyed it (of course he already has enjoyed it. Twice even!) got me a little misty eyed.

    Then walking through the queue and remembering our last trip when due to rain the training was cancelled so we rode the ride and literally ran into Darth Vader in the lineup. Even I was a bit spooked by his presence. Anyhow the memory didn’t help the mist disappear.

    I’m glad to hear they are updating this ride too. I look forward to seeing the improvements.

    Finally in the shop at the end of Star Tours we picked up the Jedi Robe for DS6. We also got him a Storm Trouper T-shirt. He actually wears the T-shirt but as I mention not the robe.

    Here is the one time he wore the robe.

    [​IMG]

    My neck was hurting from the ride and I was tired. We had an ADR at Downtown Disney. I wanted to just take a Taxi Cab. Even thinking about having to transfer buses at a resort thing was making me tired.

    I also wanted a snack. But Dh wanted to save our snack credits. Why I’m not sure.

    Then again why I didn’t just say you take the bus and I’m taking a Taxi I don’t know. I should have. I was grumpy. No snack does that to you.

    Here I am by the Mermaid fountain. Ariel is my favorite princess and we didn't have time to go to her show so the fountain would have to do.

    [​IMG]

    We made our way down towards the turnstiles. Of course I had to stop for photopass pictures on the way out.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We got this one for our DS6 who loves stitch.

    [​IMG]

    Once we got to the bus stops I wasn't actually sure what the best route was to get to downtown disney. Okay that's not true. I knew the BEST route was to take a taxi. However, Dh still wasn't having it. It brought back horrible memories of our Seaworld disaster from the year before. I wanted to just take a taxi but I had mentioned the bus system to Dh. So we took the bus. For various reasons it took 2 hours. So brutal. Anyway all that anger started to reheat inside of me.

    I wasn’t sure which resort we should switch at. Dh asked a CM and they suggested CBR or POP. A POP bus was just pulling up so we took it.

    It felt kind of funny to drive into POP. We were supposed to stay there this trip before I upgraded us to AKL. (Actually we were supposed to stay there for this upcoming trip this weekend until I upgraded us once again. But remember Shh as the upgrade is a surprise to Dh). It looked nice and I figured I would have enjoyed it. Although waiting in the open air bus stop at POP made me remember how much I enjoyed the covered bus stops at the moderates and Deluxes pretty gosh darn quick. It was hot.

    Finally a bus came. Now I hadn’t paid too much attention to the transportation to and around Downtown Disney and I made a mistake. I know shocking as it may seem.

    My mistake and my last chapter is coming up next click here. http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=33955438&postcount=338

    Keep your fingers crossed for me.

    Nope.

    Sad to report that Dh's father (who has been ill for quite some time) passed away last week so with the preparations of the funeral and then last week being the Canadian Thanksgiving we've been extremely busy.

    I'm afraid you are wrong about the TOT. But hopefully correct about Dh enjoying CSR. He could sure use a little TLC right now. So this vacation couldn't have come at a better time.

    Boma really was empty.

    IMO the rope drop show wasn't all that. But getting to TSM early was!

    The party for DH's 40th looks like a lot of fun! Did you make the cake? It looks delicious!

    Yeay for riding TSM and getting the Jedi robe -- DS looks great in it -- too bad it didn't get more use!

    You saw Darth Vader in line for Star Tours on a previous trip??? You are so lucky! I would have been in seventh heaven! :laughing: (Yes, I am waving my Star Wars geek flag right now. :thumbsup2)

    The cake was delicious but I can't take credit for it. I bought it. There were a ton of piggy cupcakes too but I forgot to take their picture before they were devoured.

    We rode TSM twice. But Dh beat me both times. :upsidedow

    It was both cool and scary to run into Vader. He is quite an imposing character. Even the hair on the back of my neck stood up.

    That's funny! When I was little, I was terrified of Vader, but in 2008 we were at DHS for Star Wars Weekends, and I insisted on getting my picture made with him! :laughing:

    Since I'm leaving tomorrow and I'd really like to get this done before I take off on another Disney adventure I'm going to try and finish it tonight.

    It might not be my best piece of writing but at least it will be completed.

    My last update had Dh and I on our way to Downtown Disney. We had a reservation at Wolfgang Pucks for lunch. The restaurant not the counter service. We hopped on a bus to POP and switched to a bus going to Downtown disney.

    I mentioned that I made a mistake. Well, on our last family trip we always took the boats to Downtown Disney. So I knew how to get to the west side by boat. I forgot that the bus stops there too. So I made us get off at the main stop by all the stores and then take the boat over to the west side when I could have just stayed on the boat and gotten off at the next stop. Oh well.

    So we ran from the bus stop to the boat dock, got on the boat then ran into the restaurant. Did I mention we were a bit late?

    We were the only ones on the boat and had a lovely conversation with the boat driver. He had worked for Disney for 32 years. Only driven the boats for the last year. He says the boat operator jobs are hard to get. He started out in the restaurants although he drove the monorails for 17 years. Dh asked him loads of questions as he knows I am pushing to come down and work for Disney when I retire.

    But back to the restaurant.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Have to say I was not a big fan of the decor. Kind of reminds me of the 80"s but not in a good way. Plus it needs a little fixing up. There was paint chipping and the upolstry was dirty. Just my opinion though.

    We got the worst table. It was right by the kitchen door.

    [​IMG]

    However, the food and the service were wonderful. As I'm writing this I'm wondering why I didn't book us in there again for this upcoming trip?

    The bread they served was super yummy. Can't get the picture to stay turned. Sorry.

    [​IMG]


    I had the butternut squash soup. Even better than the one I had at the wave.

    [​IMG]

    Dh had the springs rolls. He said he enjoyed them but he didn't rave about them.

    [​IMG]

    Then I had some sort of pumpkin ravioli. I will rave about this for a moment. Truth be known, I am a squash loving kind of girl but this melody of pasta and gourd was delightful. Very light. Not too spicy. This would be a wonderful dish on a cold winter's night. In case I didn't mention it. I loved it.

    [​IMG]

    Dh had some sort of pasta dish. Sorry I meant to look it up but I got lazy. Again he said he liked it but not raving. I think the deluxe plan had spoiled him.

    [​IMG]

    We took our desert to go. I can't remember what it was. Other than the fact that mine was chocolate.

    We left the restaurant in search of Goofy's candy store. But as I wanted to take a look at the hot air balloon ride (It had just opened and someone had asked me to take some pictures of it) I noticed this candy store.

    I just love the name and look at the door handle. Soo cute.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    (I'm not sure why photobucket won't save this turned around. I did try to turn it for you but I gave up. Sorry once again!)

    I noticed they sold chocolate covered pretzel rods. They said I could use my snack credits but they don't make them there. I have to choose from the selection they had in stock.

    [​IMG]

    It looked like a good enough selection to me. I had heard of the long waits at Goofy's and there was no one in the store so I jumped at the chance to get out of here quick. I ordered two snack credits of pretzels (that is a total of 6 rods) and three mickey shaped rice krispie treats. I ate the pretzels before I could get a picture but here are the rice krispies.


    Dh and made our way back to AKL. We had checked out but I left bathing suits in our carry on bags so we hung out at the pool for an hour or so eating our deserts before it was time to take ME back to the airport.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    At the airport we picked up Mickey D's for dinner which was such a disappointment after being on the deluxe dining plan all trip.

    I did some last minute shopping at earports and bought a pair of white crystal mickey head earrings for myself and tink earrings for my DD8 (Cindy).

    Before we knew it was time for our plane to board and we arrived safely home on time. I called home to check on the kids before we left the airport to find out that one had a fever and another had just thrown up. Boy was I ever looking forward to coming home now.

    After our three plus hour drive from the buffalo airport we rolled into our driveway around 2am. We were zonked.

    It felt like the moment I shut my eyes the alarm went off and suddenly kids were jumping all over our bed.

    "What did you bring us Mommy?"

    "Did you and Daddy have a good time?"

    "I missed you Mommy!"

    I left all their goodies on the breakfast table and as soon as they heard that they were off in a flash. Everyone was glad to see their presents but I think my parents were the most glad to see us. They looked really tired.

    Well, that's the end of my report. Thanks for reading and allowing me to share it with you. I hope you learned from my mistakes, had a good laugh, sympathized with me and maybe even found out something new or interesting about WDW.

    For the most part I had a great time with Dh. There were times I wanted to strangle him but then again, it's that way in everyday life with the man so why would I think Disney would be any different?

    The best part of the trip was NOT feeling guilty about leaving the kids and escaping to spend some time alone with Dh. I know we could do that anywhere but when the opportunity to go back to WDW again for this upcoming weekend opened up I jumped at it.

    This trip I am not doing quite as much touring. We are planning to hang out at the resort a bit more. At least that is what I have promised Dh. We're still doing some new things like MNSSHP and the food and wine festival. I'm looking forward to both of these.

    This trip couldn't have come at a better time. Dh could use some TLC and some time away. His father passed away last week from cancer. He suffered for many years and when the end finally came we can take some comfort in knowing that his pain is gone. It is a terrible thing to watch someone you love fade away to the pain like that.

    I'll leave you with a parting photo. I took this one on the plane ride home. While not a Disney photo it does capture a certain feeling of peace and yet a oneness with the world. A good parting shot I figure since all will be one with the world once again for tomorrow I leave for Disney!
