    Can't wait!!

    Not sure why we've never done HDD before:confused3 But it's fun to know that as many times as we've gone, there are still new things waiting for us!!:banana:

    For dinner we headed over to catch the Hoop-dee-doo Revue! This is one of our favorites. This is our 2nd time eating here. The first time we used the dining plan which takes 2 table service credits. Both times we booked the 7:15 dinner show. If you book the 5 or 7pm show on the dining plan you are seated in either category 2 or category 3. The first time since we were using the DP we were seated in Category 2. Which actually was not bad at all. We were sort of stage left. This time I booked out of pocket and got Category 1. We were seated center stage and 2nd row of tables.....PERFECT!!!! :banana: We had such a good time as you can tell by our pictures. We can't wait to bring family or friends to this place in the future.

    The cornbread here is YUMMY!!!!!

    You are served all you can eat at your table. There is fried chicken, bbq ribs, beans, corn bread, mashed potatoes and a dessert at the end. It is also all you can drink of beer, wine & sangria. :thumbsup2

    In the background you can see the balcony. That's the category 3 seating. There really is not a bad seat in the house!

    Looks like you guys were right in the middle of all the action. The show looks fun. Is it really crowd-interactive? Looks like it. We will definitely find our way there soon!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I love the picture of your ds and the monsters! It does look like they're closing in on him.
    For some reason we've never made it to meet them or the cars. I don't even know where the cars meet n greet is.

    I hate people who push their way to the front as if they have some sort of special priveleges...........there just isn't any excuse for rudness. Makes my blood boil every time!
    He's lucky you only thought about kicking him in the shins....I would have been very tempted to do more "damage".;)

    Hoopde doo looks like so much fun. It's on my to do list, if we ever make it back with the kids.

    :dance3: I can still hear the song in my head. We love it too!

    I thought those pic's came out cute too. That photopass guy really took his time. He was standing there all alone looking extremely bored. He was so excited when I approached him. :rotfl:

    Thank you.
    Hoop dee doo is so much fun!

    This show is so much fun and guaranteed to have your kids laughing! It is crowd interactive. You may even be pulled in to the show!:thumbsup2

    The monsters were fun. This was our first time meeting them. He was focused on Mike's eye when Sully snuck up on him. It was too funny and I'm glad it got caught in pictures.

    Cars is now over where Buzz and Woody used to be. They have their own set up now so they will stop moving around and confusing everyone!

    I hate line cutters too! :mad:

    Oh my goodness, Cherie. You and your family will LOVE hoop dee doo!!!!

    For our 2nd to last day, we wanted to visit Epcot again but promised DS that we would go ride Buzz one more time at MK and a few other rides that we didn't get to do first.

    So we head over right around rope drop and the first thing we do is grab fast passes for Winnie the Pooh. Only, each time I put my Key to the World card in the machine, 2 tickets came out instead of 1. This is what the 2nd one looked like....

    [​IMG]

    They were SURPRISE FASTPASSES!!! You can get these at random during your trip this year. I think it is a part of the "celebration" theme. Anyway, our surprise passes were for Mickey's Philharmagic. Which was AWESOME because it was one of the things on our "to do" list that morning. :thumbsup2

    So, we went back to ride Buzz, then headed over to ride Winnie after that. Then after Winnie we used our surprise passes for Philharmagic but the CM didn't take them. He just waved us in!! :banana:

    After watching the show we started to head out of the park so we could go to Epcot. I told DH to look for a family of 3 so that I could share the "magic" and give them the surprise fast passes. As we walked past the castle, the crowd parted and there they were! An older man and woman with a daughter who had down syndrome. Obviously this was the family meant for the fastpasses. I stopped them and explained it all to them. They had just arrived at Walt Disney World and were SO EXCITED that I shared this with them. I even cried a little after we walked away. You see, last trip we tried to share extra fast passes with people and they just kept walking, or looked at me like I was crazy and said "no". :confused3 Not very magical in my opinion. But not this year!! This year it was full of magic and I'm glad to be a part of that. DH even commented...."well, that certainly made up for last year!" :wizard:

    [​IMG]

    After this we rode the monorail over to Epcot. DS loves this ride. He always thinks we are racing the cars on the road during the trip. :rotfl2:
    We rode Figment today after grabbing a fastpass for Soarin. Our return time was 4pm. It was now 11am. GEESH!!!
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We also took in a ride on Test Track. We did stand by and the wait was about 20 minutes. Not too bad!! By the way....DS rode Test Track 3 times this trip and has deemed it one of his favorites! :woohoo:

    We strolled around taking in the details....

    One of our main goals today was to try out this Kim Possible thing. We actually did a mission in Norway, France, and Mexico this trip. Myself and DS thought it was really fun. DH thought it was wasting time. :confused3 Whatever. Once he got into it, he stopped complaining. Here are a couple of pictures of the "Kimmunicator".....

    Once in France I made sure to grab a Grey Goose Lemon Martini Slush! One of my faves. We made our way from country to country just checking things out that we haven't looked at before. In Morocco I finally had a chance to get a Henna tattoo!!! The one I chose was "the goddess" and I got it on my wrist. The lady told me not to get it wet, and to try to keep it out of the sun for the first hour or so. Also to try not to crack it......yeah, right! look where it is!! Easier said than done. Anyway, I didn't really ask questions so I had no idea why there were all these rules. I just tried to do what she said for the rest of the day. I will show you periodic pictures so that you can see the "progress" of my tattoo. Here is a picture of it right after I got it....

    In Japan we finally took the time to check out the little Tin Toy museum. DH's stepdad LOVES the old tin toys and collects them. He would love this place!

    Surprise fast passes!!! How cool!:banana::banana::banana:

    We've gotten the confused looks before when we've tried to give away our fastpasses......I guess they just don't understand how they work.

    I love the photopass picture in ws.

    Isn't the tin toy's in Japan fun to look at! I think we spend a couple hours in that store everytime.

    Kim Possible was a lot of fun. It's really neat all the interactive things they've added around the parks for that.

    Thank you.
    It was nice to share with people who were appreciative.
    Henna was neat to do. It lasted about 2 weeks. I got a few weird looks from the other mom's at school when we got back. :lmao:

    The henna was really neat. I can't remember how much that one was. I'll have to look up the receipt. I think it was around $20.

    :rotfl2: Yep! hoop dee doo is FUN!! drinks and all.
    it was nice to give some magic.
    He LOVES TT. When we got home it's all he talked about. But all our non-disney "peeps" had no idea what he was talking about. :rotfl2:
    Thank you!
    TR announcement coming soon....

    maybe that's why, they don't understand the fastpass. :confused3

    In about 2 weeks we will be taking a 4 night cruise on the Disney Wonder! I plan on doing a Trip Report when we get back after July 4. I should be finished with this report before we leave for the cruise. So, I'm sending out the link now. I hope to see everyone there because I plan on taking MANY MANY pictures!! This is a trip full of "firsts" for all 3 of us. We are super excited.

    I forget if I am still a member. I know there were some changes in mgmt. Is there any way for you to see if I still have an account?

    I really want to read this report...would love to take a cruise in a few years:wizard:
