    Not exactly sure about the real Italian coffee. Goofy and I were talking about eating lunch or dinner one day soon at the Pepper Market. If we go, I will definately inquire. In the past, Cafe Rix had real Italian coffee available for the refill mugs. However, there is now a nescafe dispenser for self serve. Maybe someone else here knows for sure and can say?

    I so totally agree! Despite my huge case of jealousy :laughing:, I love hearing how often you guys are able to go!

    CSR looks just gorgeous! What a neat kids play area!

    Thanks for taking the time to look. Are you sure you want to cheat on CSR? ;)

    It was very neat. I don't know if I showed it or not, but there was also a ping pong table and a fuseball table.

    (It was difficult to move 1000 miles away from family, but when we did move, we made sure we were close to Disney. In 1999, Grumpy was hospitalized 4 times for asthma. Doc said move to a more temporate climate. He suggested Puerto Rico, we said Florida. He hasn't been hospitalized since for asthma or pneumonia.)

    You are welcome for the good wishes! I forgot to comment on over half the TR since I joined in late :scared1: Did all of Anakin's sand flea bites heal??? Those things HURT!

    Chubby Checker??? I LOVE him, I love the twist...Lisa used to sing that all of the time and dance to it when she got stronger. Rachel would dance to it when she was little as well, good memories. :goodvibes Hope Anakin does okay so you can see from afar!

    That is great to have such good friends to enjoy and a better climate to breathe in! They told my Mom the same thing about me growing up, though we never moved! :lmao:

    I think you will enjoy AKL. We use to go there all the time for squash soup, but the Mara has gotten much busier since the DVC expanded. It's been a long time since we've been there. Anakin likes the rocking chairs in front of the fire, both inside the building and outside. I think he tries out every single one, unless someone is sitting in it.

    Miss you on the DIS, and FB. I never see you online anymore. JJ asked about the boy the other day. Wants to know when we will see him again. I told him not this next trip but the next.

    He still has marks where the bites are. He keeps picking at them, yuck! I remember twisting with my mom, and my kids twisting with me. I miss the good PA dutch cooking up north, and meat was better up there. I think it must be what the animals are fed??

    Epcot today

    He did not like the way Donald was touching his shoulder. He told him not to touch so hard. Made a big difference in the picture.

    This was the first time we ever used the GAC to see the characters. I wasn't sure how it would work. It actually went very well!! I showed the GAC to the cm at the entrance. He brought us in an alternate entrance and told us to wait there while he told another cm we were there. The waiting area was nice. We were by ourselves. As we stood there, Anakin noticed that Mickey's backround has Test Track in the backdrop. The other cm was very attentive to both us and the people in line. He left quite a few people in line go. In between, he talked to Anakin and said he would be soon. Once a big group was through, he left us go.

    Mickey and Minnie went great. There weren't many people around them. But as we got to Donald, it was congested with people. Anakin easily became overstimulated waiting for Donald. When it was his turn, he posed for the pic with Donald, but Donald put too much pressure to suit him on his shoulder. He asked Donald not to touch so hard. It did not appear he was touching hard at all. I think Anakin was oversensitive to his touch. But once Donald touched lighter, it made a big difference in the pic.

    The rest of our party went to see Captain EO while we were at Character Connection. After we were done with the characters we headed over there. Anakin had a great time with the water fountains there.

    LOVE the pic of him waiting to catch the water!! And Such blue skies! Been grey here for months it seems.

    We will have to get together in June for sure!! We are at the Beach Club (over on the Villa side of course) Oh wait... you will be gone on your trip.... shoot

    I poke around on the DIS but it seems everyone's questions get answered better and faster than I can get to them or answer them, so I mostly lurk...

    And..... I am always on facebook... even when I am not on it I have the chat linked via AIM, so it shows I am online even when I am not.... :laughing:

    But as always... if you need me, text me :rotfl:

    I just LOVE the smile on Anakin's face by the fountains near Captain EO. If it had been cloudy, it would have lightened the sky. :goodvibes

    Great photo with Donald Duck too. :thumbsup2

    Aww, that's so sweet, thanks!



    :welcome::welcome: Welcome, tinytreasures! What do you do that is similar, and what do you do that is different. We are pretty new to Schmolland. We arrived in Schmolland last June.

    Captain EO is too intense in sensory stimulation for Anakin. We attempted to see it once with him. He was extremely apprehensive in the waiting area. I couldn't get him to walk into the queue. But he was willing to try in his stroller. We made it to the preshow. He watched the preshow with his hands over his ears, and turning his face into his stroller at times. When the doors opened to the show, the fountain of tears began. So we walked straight through and exited.

    Here are more pictures I took while waiting for everyone else to get out of Captain EO.

    Next stop, The Land

    First up, Soarin' and then Living with the Land. We had arrived at the park shortly after opening. One member of our party got the fast passes at 9:30 for a return time of 11:20. We rode Soarin' then Living with the Land. Didn't catch the standby time for Soarin' but it was only a 10 minute way for the other attraction! Didn't use the GAC here.

    Do you see the man in the bottom right picture? Anakin thinks he looks a little like Count Dooku.

    We ate lunch at the food court. Anakin had a chicken leg, rice, grapes and apple sauce. One of the sides wasn't included, so we had to pay additional for that. He did not like the rice. Grumpy said he'd eat it, but he didn't like the rice either. Which is surprising because he loves rice! I had the Gingered Beef with a side of white rice. Grumpy had chicken tortilla soup. He is a huge soup eater. I was concerned about the seeds on the cracker that came with the soup, but he wasn't allergic to either the soup or the cracker!

    After lunch, we headed out for a rest, leaving Grumpy with the friends.

    We follow the kids lead. Leave when they look like they are going to melt. We don't plan much other then where we are going. Then we always have a exit plan if our oldest melts.
    Our oldest is scared to death of winnie the pooh :scared1: so we avoid him at all costs. He is better but we don't push our luck. It is really hard because winnie the pooh is everywhere (on clothes and the stores are full of him)
    We have learned to stop and smell the roses instead of trying to see everything all the time. Our lives are better in one way, 10x harder in another. Food is are hardest thing because our oldest can't do corn which is in everything. So we have to bring his food along for everything and he hates it :headache:
    It is a different life but it is our life so we deal :cloud9:
