    Hi, neighbor! I live very close to Scotch Plains! :) I have to tell you that I LOVE your trip report! I cannot wait to read the girl's trip report, and then go search out the REST of your TRs!

    I have a pressing question that I MUST have an answer to! HOW did you transport the cupcakes in a bag without getting them all mushed up together?!? I cannot BELIEVE Starring Rolls did not have to-go containers, let alone bags!!! I'm outraged!

    Thanks again for the laughs and entertainment!!! :)

    Thank you for the laugh. I would have sat by you on the boat because being a Dismom, I would know that you had some wonderful plans.
    Your food pictures are not good for my weight release :lmao:

    Sounds like us, we run around with our heads cut off trying to get everthing on the last day. But it is all worth it.

    All of those cupcakes have me DROOLING! I failed to get one this past trip and I'm kicking myself for not doing so.

    Looks like I'll just have to make up for it on our December 2012 trip! One of each please! :thumbsup2

    So I watched the boat pull slowly away....

    and I knew I had to hoof it. I had to get back to EPCOT, and I just couldn't stand the thought of waiting and waiting at that dock for the next boat. So off I went-

    [​IMG]

    See those people up there? They ate my dust about 1 1/2 minutes after this pic was taken. Then I saw-

    [​IMG]

    And-

    [​IMG]

    I flew by a family with a stroller- and then-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I was pretty happy walking by the BWV, knowing that I would be back here in a month. Pretty freakin' HOT, but happy, nonetheless...

    [​IMG]

    Water water everywhere, and not a drop to drink...man, was I thirsty! Did I mention it was hot and humid that day? OMG, I was sooooo thirsty!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The Yacht Club was set up for a corporate event-

    [​IMG]

    Did you notice the boats in the pic over at the BW? One was heading to DHS...one was going to Epcot....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I am a fast, fast walker....especially in WDW. I don't mess around. But that day I was fast even for ME, I was pretty proud of myself! I even stopped to high five a passing family on a surrey bike- and STILL....


    I beat that friendship boat to Epcot- well, actually, i think I tied it, because the people were just getting off as I power-walked by them and swiped myself back through the International Gateway.

    Seriously. I beat the boat.

    And for the record....I had NO guilt WHATSOEVER when I chowed down on my great big yummy PB Cupcake at home- NONE. Too bad I am not that motivated every day- I'd be a size 0 in no time!!!:rotfl:

    [​IMG]

    I still had to get to the front of the park- so I continued at my breakneck pace-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I called the boys on their cell phone- they had just gotten off SOAT and were on their way outside to meet me-

    [​IMG]

    Here they are!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We wasted no time, and headed straight for a last ride on Test Track-

    [​IMG]

    Here I am, sweaty, smelly, cupcake lovin mom of the year-

    [​IMG]

    We had a SWEET ride...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So sweet, we actually slept through some of it-

    [​IMG]

    Up next- the end of our quickie trip......

    Ellen! I forgot you were still running off with your cupcakes!:goodvibes Look at you! Mother of the Year - running through WDW at breakneck speeds, high fiving other guests, jumping over fences, leaping over attractions - landing just in front of the boys as they exited SOAT!:thumbsup2 Sorry to see you on your last ride, but so happy you arrived with the cupcakes intact!

    Well, I finally came back to finish up! The mystery is solved! Hope all that suspense didn't hurt too much! :rotfl:

    And I will be better prepared in the future- although I may just try the BW Bakery cupcakes next visit and see how they measure up- their PB cupcake sounds pretty awesome, too- and it's a HECK of a lot closer!! :rotfl2:


    Yea- we had some great mojo on our trip!!:thumbsup2

    Well hello stranger!! :goodvibes I'm glad it makes you happy to see that a mom can go with her older but not yet grown sons to WDW and still have fun. We really did have a fantastic trip- and if your boys are as close as mine are, you will have fun together, too!! And way to suck it up for your kids on Splash, Mom! :rotfl:

    ANd not to worry- we are still on Day 1 of DISmoms....but it should start going better now, what with school FINALLY out- although we have a TON of baseball games instead! And I will write about our 9 day cruise in August- even if it's not Disney...sniff snifff....but we will still have fun!

    Pods and I just booked a new trip for next January- we're going to the Riviera Maya in Mexico, to an all-inclusive- Iberostar Grand Paraiso. Pods is SOOO looking forward to that trip- it has his 2 favorite vacation activities- golf and a swim up bar! :rotfl:


    Yes, they really are as good as they look. Totally worth every calorie! SRC had little bags, but no big ones to carry them all.

    And bite your tongue on that swimming back thing!! Haven't you heard? We're supposed to stay outta the damn lakes! :rotfl:


    I am glad that you are happy with your decision- and OKW has such a great vibe- plus you are sooo right about the points! :worship: I am very, VERY envious of your HHI stay- we aren't going this year for the first time since we got our DVC, and it is REALLy hitting me lately. It's such a great place. I hope you love it as much as I do. Someone's writing a great TR about HHI on the Mousecellaneous thread right now- it was their first trip, and they loved it. How long are you going for? So jealous!!:goodvibes

    The cupcakes were worth every step, I promise. If it weren't for the DIS, I would never have known about them! :eek:

    I'm very glad to hear I'm noth the only one cracking herself up around here!! :thumbsup2 I find it cathartic, laughing at how stupid I am- KWIM? :rotfl:


    You are a girl after my own heart. :thumbsup2 We weren't that impressed with the butterfinger one- it didn't have filling, it was straight cake. But then, when I brought back my next cupcake run after the DISmom trip, Tyler's beloved Marble Cupcake wasn't filled, either.

    I really hope it's not a trend.:sad2:


    Glad to make you smile- :)

    Yea- those other desserts in that case look very yummy, but I'm like the PP who just said Peanut butter & chocolate is her kryptonite! Can't ever pass it up! But breakfast sounds like a good time for bananas...awww...who amI kidding. I'd get the PB Cupcake then, too! :rotfl:

    Hey!! School's out!! When's lunch??

    Good girl!! :thumbsup2

    Hi there, neighbor! Thanks for the compliment! :goodvibes If you go looking for the TRs, you'll be busy for a while- I can't seem to stop writing them!! Keeps me on vacation even when I'm stuck at home. :rolleyes:

    They did get smushed- but not horribly so, because they were in waxed paper and little bags to keep seperate. Still tasted great in smush-form, tho! :thumbsup2

    Hope we see you over on the DISmoms thread- that's a fun, FUN trip!!


    :rotfl::rotfl: Yes, yes you would DEFINITELY look just like that!! :rotfl:

    Sorry- I know food porn just does not help any diet- and awww...you are the sweetest friend...:hug: thanks for sitting with the crazzeee lady in the back of the boat! :rotfl2:

    I am not usually THIS hyper on the last day- but I had limited amounts of time on this visit- so I made the MOST of every second! It WAS worth it!

    Good girl!! And it's always good to have something new to look forward to!

    THANK-YOU!!!!!!!! :cheer2:

    Those must be some darn good cupcakes! I admit I would be scraping that icing off as I don't like icing!

    Couldn't help but notice your bracelet. I have a Disney one also, having fun filling it up!

    You certainly get around. I don't know if I would go to Mexico it seems a little dicey right now. It's a darn shame.

    This is the view you get, when you (rent) points from DVC members. On the other side of the tennis courts, is the parking lot for Valet. That really was our scenery. But nothing beats hearing the fire works for Illumintions and Fantasmic.

    I can't believe you beat that boat back. What day was this. My sisters made me walk from the Yacht Club to Disney Studios. You should of heard me *****in.:lmao:

    I will have to check out the HHI TR on Mouse ect......, but I plan to write mine right here. We are going for 5 nights. I paid one night with points, but then the member cash rate dropped to......ARE YOU READY?......$150/night for a two bedroom. What a steal!!!!! So the last four nights are cash. Silly to use points for that when its so cheap. It's the soccer mom trip. The ladies wanted to go to HH instead of Disney world. Still not sure that I agree with it, but I am really looking forward to it. Not sure if we will leave a day early and stay somewhere over night. Now there's talk about driving overnight, which I am not a big fan of. But the one stipulation when we picked this is that I am NOT the designated driver. YEAH!

    Loved you last update and can't believe you walked on the way back. You go girl! That was one seriously long walk. :worship:

    Love the test track pictures, especially the one with you sleeping! Too funny! :laughing:

    Can you look at Member cash rates online, or do you just call?

    We had a really fun ride on TT, and it was time to go...almost.

    [​IMG]

    Tyler had mentioned when walking by Spaceship Earth that we hadn't been on that one in a long time...so off we went...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And then it really WAS time to head back to SSR...buh-bye Epcot...see you next month!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We actually headed back a little early for our DME....because I had promised Timmy a ride on a Surrey bike while we were at SSR and, well...it was now or never. While we went for our ride, Tyler used up the rest of his arcade card. SSR really is a pretty resort, and it was fun to tool around a little bit and see some of the areas we had missed. Even if I was peddling as fast as I could, because we kind of didn't have a lot of time- the nice CM who rented us the bike, no matter how many times I stressed we had to get on the DME in an hour, just didn't seem to get the concept of time. She spent about 20 minutes explaining the Surrey to us. :rolleyes: When we finally went out, we went past the new pool that was being built at the Paddocks. But since I couldn't slow down too much, these are the only pics I took-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    :rotfl: Pathetic, huh? These I took while I was peddling-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The CM who rented us the bike was very surprised we were back so quickly- and I explained AGAIN we had a DME to catch. Still, she looked baffled by the whole concept. Don't most people just LIVE at Disney? Why go?? :confused3 She was nice enough to take our pic before we got off, though-

    [​IMG]

    We hustled Tyler out of the arcade, I filled my mug with Light Lemonade which I CHUGGED!! Grabbed our bags...and the DME pulled in. PERFECT!!!!

    [​IMG]

    I hate that STUPID movie!!

    Before ya knew it, we were on our last thrill ride of the trip-

    [​IMG]

    We are fortunate to be able to go to WDW every year with our kids because of our DVC. But THIS trip was SPECIAL in so many ways, because it was just the three of us, and because we truly had so much fun together on a trip that was last minute and really wasn't planned. :grouphug: So if you're ever on the fence about whether or not to hit WDW for just 3 nights at the last minute? Do IT!!! We'll treasure our memories forever!! :lovestruc

    Thanks for reading- hope you'll join me over on the DISmoms TR!:goodvibes

    Ellen:flower3:
