    I'm glad someone else asked about ITSK first, I guess I'll have to start a DISmom groupie readers guide...:goodvibes

    Kara - what was that green drink? It looked like a cross between a great frozen margarita and a shamrock shake - two of my favorite things! :rotfl:

    So while Lonnie & Pam stayed in Epcot or went shopping, or took a nap or who knows what, the rest of us were excited to check out the new Fantasyland attractions! Cammie's daughter, Lauren, had told her that the new Dumbo was BEAUTIFUL-so of course, we had to see for ourselves. But first-

    [​IMG]

    We decided to visit Buzz first-

    [​IMG]

    Oh boy....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So serious! Our car was MUCH more fun!

    [​IMG]

    Next, it was time for Dumbo....and Lauren was spot on- Dumbo is magnificent!

    ITSK alert!

    [​IMG]

    Oh, man- I just love me some Kara Jean- :rotfl2::rotfl2:

    Next was a trip to visit Goofy- because whatever this little coaster is called now, or was called before, I had never been on it. :confused3

    [​IMG]

    I'm sure Kara has some nice photos to share....

    [​IMG]

    But I have this-

    To be continued........

    Yes, we really do- that's what it's all about, right?
    BTW- thanks for inviting me to the animal kingdom game on FB- I am TOTALLY OBSESSED!!! :rotfl:


    Just wear comfortable shoes and eat lots of bread to soak up the booze and you'd be fine! :woohoo:

    GREAT attitude! You get a gold star! :goodvibes

    The BEST ITSK of the trip was on the last night- but then, Kara has an ITSE to fight back with from then, too-:rolleyes1

    I have it- just put it on my new iphone (my old one got a middle of the night soak from Pods- OOPS!

    Me too- I can't wait to see what's done when I return in November......

    I keep cracking up at your ticker, “Future In Laws cruise”. Does this mean an arranged marriage between one Miss Ally and one Mr. T? :rotfl2:
    We keep telling Sarah she has been promised to Paul, the son of a friend of ours. Paul’s mom is the most awesome cook. She is from China, lives in Japan and her husband is from Illinois. When we share a meal with her family we never know what we will be getting but it is always fantastic. :cloud9:
    From what I hear you also are an awesome cook. We could make an arrangement if things do not work out for regarding Paul. NJ is a heck of a lot closer than Japan. :rolleyes:

    So....we were on the littlest rollercoaster, having a blast...which we followed up with a visit to see our favorite ghosts-

    [​IMG]

    Where some people were STILL showing off how talented they are....

    [​IMG]

    And then a ride on Splash-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and Joanie and I held hands on the way down-

    [​IMG]

    Amazing how much braver I am after 300 shots of tequila! :rotfl:

    BTMRR was down, so we decided to call it quits after Splash....but I had one more thing left on my TO DO list....

    [​IMG]

    Yummmm.....I love me some dole whip! I wonder if it will taste any lovelier in Hawaii????:rolleyes:

    Back at BCV, we called it a night.

    [​IMG]

    After all, we had a BIG day tomorrow...we were going on the DREAM!!! FINALLY!!!!!!!:cheer2::cheer2::cheer2::cheer2:

    In the morning, we packed it up early, and took a few pics of our giant balcony one more time...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I just loooooove the Beach club! :)

    We headed over to BWV, to check our luggage for a bit while we had some breakfast at Kouzzina...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    While we waited to be seated (and you ALWAYS wait to be seated at Kouzzina- no matter WHEN your ADR is....) I went outside to make some ADRs for my November trip- and I was actually unable to make them for Raglan Road, because our group is so big- it seems I would have to call the restaurant directly for our large party of 11, and that was just too involved this morning, so I figured I could just take care of it when I got back....

    [​IMG]

    Eventually, it was time to be seated-

    [​IMG]

    Kara had made all of us shirts, with help from another DISer"s daughter...

    [​IMG]

    Aren't the shirts AWESOME??? :thumbsup2

    We decided to start the day with some Sangria-

    [​IMG]

    But wait! Where's the fruit? Oh- says our server- she forgot. Well DUH...what's the point of sangria without any fruit? :confused3 So she brought us a plate and Lonnie put it in...

    [​IMG]

    See? Much better!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I really love breakfast at Kouzzina, tho- in spite of itself. I always get Stacked Kouzzina Breakfast - Two Poached Eggs, Kalamata Olive toast, Artichoke Spread and Sweet potato Hash with choice of Bacon or Chicken Sausage - $11.99

    [​IMG]

    It is such a delicious and unique combination. YUMMMMM.....not sure who had these, but it seemed everyone was happy with their choices-

    [​IMG]

    those were blueberry granola pancakes, which it seems have been taken off the menu. This next one is French Toast Baklava - Grilled Fig and Anise Country Bread with honey, walnuts and cinnamon with your choice of bacon or chicken sausage - $11.99

    [​IMG]

    Once we were done, it was time for.......

    Our sunshine limo ride to the port!! WOOHOOOOOOO!!!!! The cruise is HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!:dance3::dance3:

    Up next-

    Well I guess I must agree with Ellen, AKA "Peas," because she is right all the time!!!! :confused3

    After a wonderful San Angel Inn dinner, my second in just 5 months - I HIGHLY recommend it! - we were off to ride with crazy little dolls who come to life in Kingdom Keepers, soooooo glad I hadn't read that before this trip - don't know how I'll ever ride IASW again!!!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And Ole!

    Time to get the heck outta Dodge... or Epcot in this case.....

    When we headed over to MK, we all were excited to check out the Fantasyland redo, and while Ellen enjoyed her "first" on Barnstormer, I got to have my "first" on Dumbo!!! I have successfully avoided it on all previous trips, but now that there are TWO round and round thingys.... and it was really late at night and all the Dumbo afficionados should be dreaming of sugar plums.... we had virtually no wait!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ellen was trying to reassure me that things would be "okay".....

    [​IMG]

    See the pretty waterfall within the ride?

    [​IMG]

    NOW do you see it?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Yup, NOW she's getting a bit nervous as she hears all the screams coming from Barnstormer. Oh yeah, girlfriend, you are SO riding it - hands in the air!!!!

    [​IMG]

    We left Fantasyland just as Wishes was going off - so bizarre to see it from BEHIND the castle!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We were on our way to Splash Mtn, but who can resist a stop at the spooky Haunted Mansion??? Well, not Ellen.... apparently.

    [​IMG]

    We took the long way through the new queuing and everyone had fun playing with all the interactive time wasters.... Hey, if they can keep Ellen happy, they make ME happy.... ;)

    I was so tired by this time I can't even tell you when we left MK to head back.... Cammie and I headed back to BWV to snuggle up, and Ellen and Joan went to BCV to meet their roomies to snuggle. We are such snuggly gals!

    We had a BIG day coming up!!! Breakfast at Kouzzina!!! Oh, yeah, and something about a little boat ride.....

    Well once again, Peas is RIGHT on! We sure DID eat at Kouzzina! :rotfl2: That Miss Ellen, she so smart!

    Huh, and I though WE had a lot of cooking oil in our kitchen!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The sangria looked so pretty this morning, but I was sticking with coffee.... :rolleyes1

    [​IMG]

    Who's that peeking at me!!!! Why hello Peas!!! "That Miss Ellen, she CRAZY!" - quote from Ally..... And that Ally, she RIGHT!

    [​IMG]

    For breakfast I had the Kara's Carb Attack, AKA French Toast Baklava - Grilled Fig and Anise Country Bread with honey, walnuts and cinnamon with your choice of bacon or chicken sausage - $11.99

    It was JUST what I needed this morning..... After doing low carb for the past several weeks, it hit the spot!

    [​IMG]

    After breakfast it was time to bid farewell to Lonnie and Pam and head up to the BW to grab our 39 bags - what? We are 4 women traveling on a 4 night cruise!!!! - and wait for our driver to haul these 4 Miss Daisys to our DREAM cruise!!!

    [​IMG]

    I pity the poor man, what was his name, Peas? I KNOW you know! He tried so hard to keep a straight face for the 1 hour drive, but every once in awhile we caught him grinning. Oh the stories he must have to tell his wife every night. I think we may have given him a couple more.....

    Does this look like trouble to YOU?

    [​IMG]

    It was just under an hour before we saw THIS!!!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I can't believe I had just gotten off her sister ship about 5 weeks earlier, and here I am, back at the port!!!! With my favorite girls!!!!
