    I have been a delinquent Dis Mom Groupie, but I am caught back up.

    Laura, glad you are doing well with your pace maker. My father recently passed away unexpectedly of a massive heart attack (and he was in great shape), so I am glad you took the extra precaution and can lead and long and wonderful life.

    Ellen, hope you enjoyed the cruise. I am so jealous.

    Kara, your trip report cracked me up. Sorry about your hot waiter. I am sorry I never saw him live and in person. Also, two weeks from today OSU football starts. I can't wait!

    So sad about the Hottie. Oh well. Can't wait to read about other potential hotness!

    Laura, more important of course, I hope you are doing well!

    When we woke up in the morning...some earlier than others (Evie) were so sweet and kind and put on coffee AND went over to the BW Bakery to bring back pastries for all-

    [​IMG]

    Isn't she just so nice? We LOVE Evie! :lovestruc Of course, I had to be a PITA, and have a craving for a cheese danish (my favorite brekkie pastry, and something I will only indulge in on vacation, where, of course, they are calorie AND fat-free!). So I went over to stand in the bakery line with everyone else at the BW-

    [​IMG]

    It was a beautiful morning, and I was happy to be outside-

    [​IMG]

    Yummy!

    [​IMG]

    We had decided to go to MK this Sunday morning, because, well...we hadn't been there yet!! And because we would be having High Tea at the GF that afternoon, so it all kind of fit. Evie and Laura were so happy to be in the happiest place on earth, they decided to dance in the streets-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Kind of makes you wonder what the heck Evie put in her morning brew, doesn't it? :rolleyes:

    [​IMG]

    I was so glad we had waited until today to come to MK, because the skies were bright blue and sunny- just can't do MK in the rain as well as the other parks, KWIM? We all decided to zig left, and went towards Adventureland. Where I said hello to some friends...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    while everyone was shopping. Our next stop?

    [​IMG]

    which I was glad about because I have missed POC the past few trips.

    Happy DISmoms-

    [​IMG]

    Aaargh!!!

    [​IMG]

    Perfect timing when we got off the ride for-

    [​IMG]

    Time for more rides, so we went over to BTMRR

    [​IMG]

    Where a DISer recognized us! :rotfl: We really ARE famous!!

    [​IMG]

    Or maybe it was the green DISMOMS buttons that caught her eye....A quick 20 minutes later, and we were on-

    [​IMG]

    Look how brave Lonnie was!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    To be continued soon......

    We were all really curious about the Fantasyland expansion, so that's where we went next. On the way....

    [​IMG]

    And we took a minute to be nostalgic about this-

    [​IMG]

    It was SO EXCITING to see how much was done!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We were all mesmerized by this map, trying to figure it all out-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I REALLY can't wait to see it all!! After we had spent enough time gawking over the fence, we realized it was time for us to make our way to the front of the park and get over to the GF.

    [​IMG]

    On the way....

    [​IMG]

    LOVE that band!!! We had had some dicussion the night before about Roy Disney and the location of his statue....a couple of us called it right, so we decided to stop and spend a little quality time with our friend Roy before we left the park-

    [​IMG]

    Then it was onto the monorail for a very quick ride-

    [​IMG]

    to the Grand Floridian for our afternoon tea- up next!!

    The look on the photopass guys face is like..."What the ........?"

    Back to making out with the stuffed monkeys again, I see! :lmao: I'm sure they missed you!

    Fabulously fun and energetic MK morning.

    Can't wait for tea!

    Wow! Can definitely see why you're missing sir hotness!

    Love the updates. Those pastries are making my tummy rumble. Cheese danish is my favorite too!

    Captain Jack! :love::love: What, no photo of Kara with him? She's losing her touch!

    The photos of the expansion show how much they've done in a short time. When we were there in mid-March you couldn't see anything yet.

    Me too!!:goodvibes

    I was there the month before and couldn't see much of anything- it was very impressive to see all that progress! We were all absolutely giddy about it. :yay:

    Oh Mother of Wicket, it's what she does.... just accept it.

    Your siggie is making ME sad too!!!!

    Funny.... we get that look from a LOT of people... :confused3

    Me too!!!

    Well, if you must know..... Joan and I were out watching the lovely Captain while the rest were on POTC. I mean, why waste our time with that silly audio animatronic Jack when we have the REAL thing!!! ;)

    Oh Evie, Evie, Evie...... So glad SOMEONE was up at at 'em and bringing back FOOD!!!! She really IS the sweetest thing!

    I don't know what happened, but somewhere between those muffins and MK, Joan and I got REALLY hungry! So once we walked in here....

    [​IMG]

    As the rest of the gals headed to POTC, Joan and I headed to the Outpost for a quick "snack" which ended up being a full blown lunch!!!! :rotfl2:

    We snarfed it down SOOOOO fast, thinking that the line for POTC would be really short and the rest of our party would be stuck waiting for us, but as we texted and texted, nobody answered.

    We begain to take it personally. As we should have. We have our issues.......

    So to make ourselves feel better, we found this.

    [​IMG]

    Had to shove a few kids and an old lady in a wheelchair out of the way, but I still managed to score a spot in the front row.

    Then when Captain Jack asked for volunteers, I had to control Joan - cause there she was jumping up and down yelling, "Me! Me! Me! Oh, pick ME Captain Jack cause I loooooooove you!!!!" :rolleyes1

    It was really quite embarassing.

    [​IMG]

    Then he looked at me and said, "Hey, I remember me? The Magic? April? We shared a moment........" ;)

    Soon got a text from the rest of the gang and they were standing on the other side of the pirate tutorial. Wonder if they saw Joan's embarassing moment? :confused3

    Off we rolled to hit the VERY scary, BTMRR........ If only Lonnie had the nerve to ride this, but there is no way! She can't go on anything that goes over 10 feet in the air because of the very rare heightchallengosis disease she has. It causes her head to spin around, thereby making her very ill. Not to mention everyone nearby who pulls out garlic and holds up crosses to ward her off!!!

    Wait, I think I mixed up a couple things there......

    Anywho......

    Her meds must have been working because her heightchallengosis seemed to be under control!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Thank goodness for that!!!

    But apparently Ellen's meds were NOT working!!! Cause that H2Ochallengosis was really coming on with a vengeance!!!

    [​IMG]

    Up Next AFTER the Tea.... Henry VIII she IS!

    i was so worried that with this new helper thing I got that i too would have heightchallengosis. But upon discharge my loving husband clarified that I'm good to go on crazy rides...Wooo-Hoooo!

    As for MK that day, all I remember is not having mascara on. Yeah it was that kind of day. Tears came and went and came. Seriously I thought I was losing it. It was awesome.
