    Is that it? I don't know- I did feel like I had a sign over my head, that's for sure! I have "performed" in WDW before- I was picked to be the slutty Queen in England in the comedy skit once, that was a loooooong time ago, though- I think it was on our first trip in the 80's!! And I went on Nickelodeon Live a couple of years back- when we stayed at the Nick hotel. Glad to be wearing the sign again, though!

    Sorry for all the rudeness!! I would MUCH prefer to drink WITH you than WITHOUT you, by the way! :goodvibes And FWIW....I don't know how many drinks you're buyin' but it will NEVER be enough for a glimpse of that film....we're payin' Kara the BIG bucks to keep it quiet...:rolleyes1 :rotfl:

    I do have friends who go to India- both went on business (my BFF actually goes a LOT, she's a SR VP for a large pharmaceutical company, and my other friend is a sommelier who was sent there to promote a wine business as some nice hotels there) and both had the same thing to say- it is the MOST diverse place they have ever been- a land of EXTREME extremes- the richest of the richest riches, next to the poorest poverty....I know those techs who are talking to us trying to help us fix our computer woes are up in the middle of the night doing it. :eek: SOunds pretty rough to me. :sad2:

    We didn't spend a lot of time in Fantasyland, just kind of passed through on our way to some rides....actually, we spent some time there on this night- I don't think they were too horrible, but we were busy chatting while we were walking by them, and we are VERY easily distracted!
    NOT a stuffed animal- a big, bad, poop stuffed REAL bird!! And I was having a grate day!! :thumbsup2

    I did that on a call last week- and again with India- it didn't work this time. :sad1:
    SO nice you had such a fun visit with your family!! :goodvibes Did the babies come? Are they still babies?

    And THANKS!!!


    Hi Disneybuckeye!! :cheer2: Did you read the Bucky story yet?? :rotfl2: I'm glad you're enjoying the TR- we write it for exactly the reason you mentioned- to live vicariously through it until we can all go again. Thanks!!

    I do look sad in that photo! :confused3 Maybe it was heat exhaustion!! Or maybe it was OVER!!! :sad1: Anyway, thanks for taking the pics, Joan! Cammie took a ton, too- I remember looking at where you all were watching, and she was watching and laughing at me the longest...She must be my BIGGEST fan! :woohoo: :rotfl2:

    Love the dance! Looks like the young man two peoples from you (blue shirt and tan shorts) is also "in the groove". :banana:

    Looks like a lot of fun.

    The boys in the blue shirts next to me were from a Jesuit camp- oroginally I was between them, but then ended up next to them. They were into it, too! :goodvibes

    Ah, Ellen, you are awesome. You are the friendliest person I have ever met (even though our meetings thus far have been just “inter-space”). Who else would have taken the time to find out where her tribal dancing partners were from. :thumbsup2

    As soon as the excitement from the dancing was over, I decided to text Timmy. I think I said something like, "I just was picked twice in one day! Went on the stage and then did an African dance!!! WOOHOO!!!" His reply- based on the fact that I said I would bring home whatever special candy they wanted from WDW for them- was, "Why did you go without us? I have always wanted to do that. You owe me $20 in candy!" :rotfl2: That kid cracks me up!!

    Anyway, we were all sweaty and smelly at this point, and fortunately for us it was time to ride Kali RR. We were all going on- except for Pam. Who does not like to get wet. Ever. Sooooo....she was happy to hold ALL of our bags for us while we all prayed we would get soaked! What can I say???? Some of us did....and some of us did....

    KRR was the whole reason I brought my water camera that day. It was GREAT to be able to take pics during the ride!!

    We all got wet, but there was one of us who got that the wall o' water- and that was Cammie-

    That was VERY refreshing....but I still say that ride is TOO SHORT!!! If only it had one more big, soaking drop! We found our girl Pam, who we had left holding the bags-

    [​IMG]

    :rotfl: She is such a sweetie! :cutie:

    I need to upload the rest of my pics from the day- up next- the PERFECT time for a snack and there's a new AWESOME cocktail in town, M'am!

    There's a lot of white being worn on the ride. :rotfl: Hope no issues there. :thumbsup2 Gotta love a water ride on a hot day! I'm always amazed at the people who put on their poncho when it's 100+ degress.

    Poor Cammie, but it probably felt good to get wet on that hot day! Did you all walk around the park wet, or head back to the room?

    Hey Ellen! (And DISmom crew...)

    I'm all caught up! Glad to see you actually made it to the parks! AK is really awesome. It's such a shame how overlooked that park is. I can't stand when people say it's a half-day park. There is so much to see and do (and drink), just roaming around and soaking it all in....

    I agree with you, Kali is waaay to short! We didn't even do it this last time because, believe it or not, it wasn't hot enough!

    Can't wait to see what you guys are up to next!! :thumbsup2

    Oh excellent dancing, btw!

    Well...ummm....I am really nice and friendly and all, but, ummm....the reason I knew they were from Jesuit Camp is because of their matching Jesuit Camp tshirts. I'm not just really nice, I also have the investigative skills of a CSI agent! :rotfl2:

    You are sooooo easy....

    ITA...:cutie: :littleangel:

    We all left our polka dot panties home that day...:rolleyes1

    I don't recall she was complaining....I think we were all happy to get wet! And you'll have to wait and see what we did next....:surfweb: :goodvibes

    We recovered our bags, cash intact, from Pam...and I realized I was getting kinda hungry. Our ADR at Narcoosees was a loooooong way off....so...what about a little pit stop at Yak & Yeti? We stopped at the bar, thinking we would just get a cocktail....but then, everyone was like, "I could eat a little something"....so, we grabbed a table- which, by the way, there were PLENTY of this time of day (so if you want to try some Y&Y and didn't score an ADR, try stopping by late afternoon! :thumbsup2). We all decided we would each have an appetizer and...we would all be trying Y&Y's brand new yummy cocktails- the frozen martinis!! :dance3: We perused the menu-

    [​IMG]

    And placed our orders. I love the atmosphere in here- it's ultra cool!

    [​IMG]

    First, the groovy cool drinks came out. Everyone got a glass like this-

    [​IMG]

    And everyone got a shaker to filled with the fruity martini of their choice to pour over their snowball. While all the little people poured their own cocktails-

    [​IMG]

    I, OF COURSE, had mine poured for me by our lovely server- you know, due to my super STAR status and all...

    [​IMG]

    Ahhh...yummy grapey lusciousness...

    [​IMG]

    And I believe this was green apple?

    [​IMG]

    But those of us who got grape thought ours was best. And those of us who had the green apple thought ours was best. So try the GRAPE when you go!!

    [​IMG]

    Then our appys arrived. I got seared pork potstickers-

    [​IMG]

    Joan had steamed ones (maybe Kara did, too?)

    [​IMG]

    Lonnie got the lettuce cups-

    [​IMG]

    She REALLY loved them! Cammie & Pam shared the wok-fried green beans-

    [​IMG]

    It was all delicious, it REALLY hit the spot!! I highly recommend a stop at Y&Y to refuel before a late dinner ADR. Here's Lonnie lovin' her lettuce-

    [​IMG]

    CHEERS!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Should be called Yummy & Yeti. Well, that's what I'm calling it from now on! Anyway....we finished up and realized it was probably time to head out of the park. Of course, we stopped for a little shopping on the way out...and a little losing each other in the dueling shops on our way. And what's up with THESE little guys? Sooo stinkin' cute!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    With the magic of Disney & text messaging, we discovered we were all in the same place! Will wonders never cease?! After paying, we realized it was REALLy time to go. Goodbye, lil fella-

    [​IMG]

    We got into Lonnie's Magical Mystery van for the sad ride back...ya see, once she dropped us off at BCV, she was going to have to go home....:sad1:

    Saying goodbye to Lonnie was awful.....I hope she can stay the whole time next year!!!!

    On a happier note.......After spending the past couple weeks "discussing" a fall trip to WDW with my DH....He finally agreed that we are running out of time to have these trips with our kids and we are going, but Moderate this time. I just finished booking CSR for 10/28 - 11/6 with FREE DINING:cheer2:.....So excited! DH is thrilled that I managed to save us nearly $1200 on our trip instead of just spending money like usual! And if we happen to get this code that I keep reading is being released on Tuesday, it could work out even better for us. Fingers crossed for more Disney Magic!pixiedust: I've heard such great things about CSR and can't wait to stay there!! :dance3:

    Oh my, those martinis look soooo good! They probably were very refreshing, too! What a bummer that Lonnie had to leave. :sad1:

    Wow Ellen - you truly are a Rock Star!:worship: (As if there was any doubt!;))

    Those moves would put me to shame, that is for sure! You go girl!!!

    Those pot stickers and frozen martinis sure look good! I will definitely keep Yak & Yeti in mind for a little afternoon snack as you suggest!;)
