    Why yes, yes she is? They'd all be sipping sweet tea and grumping along if it weren't for ME!!!! :rotfl2:

    I usually carry a VB backsack and I just stick it in there and strap the bag over my knee and tuck it behind my leg (on things like RnR or ToT). For simple rides I just hold it or leave it around my neck.... I've gotten pretty laid back about my camera and I think it knows its limits. Kinda like, "oh, better hold on tight, she's taking me on a ride again!!!" What? I'm the only one whose camera talks?

    The current wait list is out to 2024. We'll add your name.... :rotfl2:

    Yes, we do like our handsome waiters. Heck, we even like our cute FEMALE waiters and bartenders (that is foreshadowing...... )

    And I'm so sorry I did not see that sign the first time. Maybe that's why they had to add it after I helped myself????

    Not only is that a quote, but it's a shamless plug for YOUR TR!!!!!

    It helps us to relive it!!!

    We are some hot chicks, huh????? :rotfl2:

    Kara - are you really afraid of elevators, or just everyone's tongue talents? :scared:

    Good - I got caught up on this TR before you guys got to the boat. Looks like you had a good start to the trip. I so wanted to try a Jalapeno Rita when we were at Epcot last week but I was so tired I am sure it would have knocked me out.

    Ellen - Thanks for the great photos of AKV. We just finally took the plunge and joined DVC on the Magic last week and AKV is our home. I can't wait to stay there next summer.

    Yes, it might be - especially on the weekend. The last week in Aug it really clears out. Sometimes it is quieter in the evenings - cooler too!:goodvibes

    Enjoying another DISmoms TR!

    Cammie - don't know if you remember me but I posted on a couple of your TR's. Saw your sig and just wanted to say so sorry to hear about Amanda.

    Ellen - great new sig pic of your 3 boys

    So...everyone wants to be a DISmom and there's a long waiting list! Too funny! Maybe I'll run into one or more of you ladies at some point. I have an AP till Jan. 2013 and hope to get in at least one more trip before it expires and of course hopefully renew! Ran into NIKIlovesWDW back in Feb!

    Looks like you had a great time as usual. Can't wait to hear more!

    It's TRUE! After meeting the practically perfect Mary, we made our way to one of our favorite watering holes in Epcot....

    Rose and Crown....

    [​IMG]

    And fwiw, I think this is Mary's favorite watering hole, too. I can just picture her hiking up her skirts, unlacing those boots and dancing on some tables.... just sayin.....

    As for those Florida Gators who were having fun with my camera? I think they are still used to flash cubes and rolling the lever to the next photo..... I'm not a Gator fan in case you couldn't tell..... :snooty:

    After a drink in the UK, it was back to the Beach Club for a bit of bubbly.....

    After all, a toast was in order as we were beginning DISmoms 4! Can you believe it's been FOUR straight years of this???? I feel so blessed to have been in all of the DISmoms trips (including NEXT year!!!!), despite always telling my Jeff that "I'll start going every other year." :rotfl:

    Back on BCV, we pulled out the fancy champagne glasses....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ....and toasted to yet another great trip!!!!

    [​IMG]

    I was not very happy with Lonnie for not cruising with us.

    [​IMG]

    But I forgave her since I learned of her Kate Winslet phobia.....

    [​IMG]

    Or was it Leo? Oh that's right..... the swimming pool innertube incident. ::yes::

    Cammie was NOT happy when we told her that SHE had to do the dishes!!!!

    [​IMG]

    Soon we were heading back to the park for Cinco de Mayo dinner....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    San Angel Inn here we come!!!!

    [​IMG]

    Tequila? Te-kill-ya!!!!!! No tequila shooters for me!

    But thank you very much for asking, Hilda!

    [​IMG]

    I'll just stick to one of these.....

    [​IMG]

    My Drinko de Mayo buddies...... :grouphug:

    Well Cheers! Or whatever they say in Spanish! Looks like you have the routine down - drink a little - walk a little - drink a little more. :rotfl2:

    Yes- we definitely had a rhythym going there!

    Ahhh...that was so fun! :rotfl2:

    I'm pretty sure!! We'll know for certain when I have both Kara and Drea all to myself in that cabin next year on the high seas! :thumbsup2

    Thanks for the lift! Between Kara going Pro on the WPGA and me finishing up the end of the school year in a whir and a blur, not much time for writing this TR, I'm sorry to say. All I have had brainpower for is that Disney Animal game on FB- come and play with me, PLEEEEEEEZ! But I'll do an update now-:banana:

    So back at Drinko de Mayo.....we had originally started out booking Artist's Point for this night- but when manntra pointed out that we would be in Epcot on Cinco de drinko, well...I couldn't imagine that THAT ADR would get ANY use at ALL. So I booked us all into SAI. And made sure to cancel AP- didn't want to pay $10pp for not showing up!! :scared1: We were seated pretty promptly, and our orders were taken without much wait-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    For my meal, I had Tostadas de Tinga - Roasted tomato and chipolte marinated pulled chicken, abacado, and black refried beans on frien corn tortillas, topped with valentina sauce, queso fresco and sour cream - $10.50

    [​IMG]

    Sorry about the over-exposure there, but overexposed or not, they were really very, very yummy!

    It was also so nice to finally EAT something along with my drinkos!!

    Of course, since it was Lonnie's Birthday, as usual, no meal would be complete without her humiliation. So here it is!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I have to say, when we started these DISmoms trips oh so long ago, Lonnie was so shy about getting the desserts, and she always shared.

    Still shy, but not so much sharing going on anymore.

    I guess she thinks that if she gets the humiliation, then she gets the cupcake/ice cream to go with it! :rotfl:

    Once Lonnie had finished her dessert, we decided that no Drinko de Mayo would be complete without a little boat ride-

    [​IMG]

    ITSK!

    [​IMG]

    Once we had disembarked, our plans were to go to MK to check out the new and inproved Fantasyland- but Lonnie & Pam weren't in the mood- so we said see ya later, and the rest of us headed to the monorail-

    [​IMG]

    Where we REALLY enjoyed our ride to MK!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Up next- the BEAUTIFUL new Dumbo, and yet ANOTHER ITSK!!!:rotfl:

    I thought you had the same meal that I had? WAsn't it a 3 course thingy that we could easily have split? A LOT of food!!!!

    OMG!!! I can't believe Lonnie is on the boat!!!!! What about that innertube bathtub incident from 1972? Will she be okay????

    Ahhhh, that explains why she didn't make it to Fantasyland with us.....

    Flashbacks to 1972.

    And Rosie! YOU are encouraging her to post ITSK pics!!!! You are not nice! :sad2:

    Humiliation is ALWAYS the perfect gift! :thumbsup2 :rotfl:

    Did I? Well- all I ate were the tostadas- or maybe all I took a picture of was the tostadas- but still- all I ended up actually eating were the tostadas!

    Did I remember to tell you a friend of mine is on the Magic right now, out of NYC- and she is renewing her vows? A complete surprise to her whole family- they did it on Sunday on the Deck 7 Secret Aft deck- I can't WAIT to hear about it, she was SO excited!!!! :yay:
