    Look how they are only slightly humoring you here...HA!

    That standby line for TT was Ridonkulous! Seriously, I have never seen it that long before. I hope that's because it was Christmas week and not because Magic Bands limiting your FP+ selections to 3 a day are causing that! :crazy2:

    I loved Les Halles. We got to try it in August 2013. I particularly liked the white wine I had there, but cannot for the life of me remember what it was. I'm going to have to see if I can look it up....

    What a fun day in Epcot :)
    We were in WDW early December and loved seeing all the Storytellers and trying the yummy treats
    They had gingerbread ice cream in France - AMAZING!
    I can't wait to get back there and hit the mint choc chip :)

    Subbing in because I have already seen some of the pictures and I am sure that I'm going to have some explaining to do when you get a few days further along. :)

    Great start! Can't wait for the next installments....

    Fun day. it really doesn't look too crowded for that time of year. I guess it could be worse.

    I'm glad you liked the Glühwein. There are lots of different ones, but the Gerstacker Glühwein from Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt ist really one of the best! I only like Glühwein, when it's really cold, when you really need it to get warmer, otherwise it's to sweet for me. So I don't think i would drink some in Florida, even in December :)

    Gotta love all the Christmas touches in Epcot - the decorations, the food, AND the speciality drinks. I loved your choices from the bakery in France. Really makes me want to stop there next trip!

    Oh - and I need to try that spice wine from Germany. Guess I need another holiday trip!

    Love the boys car design. Quite creative! :thumbsup2

    Yes, you are doing a Christmas/NYE Report! Woo Hoo. So glad. Love reading your reports.

    And seeing all your pictures I am seeing things that we definitely missed! And we were there for four days! It sure was beautiful during the Holidays.

    Can't wait for the rest! :goodvibes

    Definitely I ditch them if they are not interested with what I want to do! OR vice-versa. They know they are still loved, and I would have been thrilled to have them along- but they seriously wanted to do something else.

    And I totally get why you have no plans to visit here for the Holidays- you live on DL's doorstep!! :jumping1:


    It really was- I love Epcot too!!!!!!

    Mornin Rosie! :goodvibes
    Good choices on the Must-Dos- we did not see the Osbourne lights this trip, but have many times before, and they are incredible, right? Always makes me giggle like a little girl!


    Was it Vouvray? That is one of my favorites- it is Chenin Blanc- really really a great grape.

    Hey there! :goodvibes Thanks for coming along again! The Fantasy is fantastic! Can't wait to start the cruise portion of our trip!:thumbsup2

    Always, always, there is a reason to go back....so many more stories to hear, so many more foods to eat....

    I can't wait either! I wonder what other embarrassing photos I'll be posting of you along the way??? :lmao:

    J/K- we love you, you are never embarrassing, you are just a LOAD of fun!! :grouphug:

    OH CANADA!!!!! :love: Have to say that since Christmas, i have met MORE wonderful people from Canada than I can count! Between the cruise and this trip I just took to Mexico with my girlfriends where we met so many wonderful and amazing people from your country, I am DEFINITELY a BIG fan! :woohoo: I feel very fortunate that I get to see 2 of them again when we go to Vancouver this summer- a couple who own some restaurants called Chewies. YAY!

    It really wasn't nearly as bad as I was expecting! And OMG- I am really starting to lose it not knowing about next month! :headache: You said you come in on Saturday, right? Can't wait to hang!:yay: I HOPE!!!!!!!popcorn::

    Sorry, babe- that's like an hour from here and Tuesday is the day I have to go up and get Sean from school after his after-school program- are you here again or later? I live north of there, closer to NYC.

    LOL- I figured this was the Yago Sangria of Gluhwein (which I would be appalled at drinking- I of COURSE have to make my own sangria). But not knowing any better, we really liked it! It was sweet, you are so right, but for some odd reason in this drink that was ok for us (we don't normally go for the sweet stuff at all, like you). I guess we don't know any better!


    Thanks! Fuel efficient and speedy quick, too, lol!

    Great! thanks!!!

    Hi Ellen! Told you I would be right over! I can't wait to read what you have so far but I just had to comment - WE were at the BWV on the MAIN floor right off the elevator in a studio!! After all our messages to try and meet for a margarita and you were practically next door. One of these days we will meet in person :thumbsup2

    I'm going to subscribe and come back later to read some more!

    You are really an uber updater on this one!:thumbsup2 I love that you went to MK solo - fun to just be able to do what you want and just take it all in. Nice start to your second day. Good thing you had some FP+ going on with that crowd.

    All of the food around the world looks really good - kind of like an extended F&W - do they have it through the Holidays now?

    I can't wait for the bra story! How did we miss that??? The next time you cruise with men who wear bras, I hope we're on that one with you!! ;)

    I come in Friday night and staying at POFQ for that 1 night. The next day we are hitting Epcot and moving to offsite at my parents timeshare. I am not liking being offsite, but it does keep the cost down at least!!!!
