    I was hoping for the Maelstrom ride but some people think it's boring. I think it's fun. We rode it 4 times in a row one evening right before Illuminations (we skip the film at the end).

    Now, we have to get Rags on Rocks over to this thread to join in...

    Excellent... It's great to get more people for a meet. I thought the skipping while holding hands may spark an interest...:lmao: If everyone is up for it, maybe a drink in Norway and riding Maelstrom may be fun... We could get a CM to take our picture in the Viking Ship.

    Jennz - please visit our DISers Stalking DISers thread. You will have a lot of fun over there!!! The link is in my siggie!

    I'd love to come, maybe I can find a way, I love locally but my fiance' goes to work at 10pm and we live about 1 hour away from EPCOT, so this would be tight. Maybe I could have him take the night off, would love to meet some fellow DISers. And I love Norway!

    That would be great! Plus I would love to talk to you about Cape Canaveral as we vacationed there last October and are talking about going back next year. A friend of ours owns a condo on the beach!

    This would be a great meet if we can get everyone to show up! Picture opportunity for sure!!!! :thumbsup2

    YAY!! Talked to DH, and we are in! I think it was the beer that swayed him! I think Avery and Tucker will have fun riding Maelstrom with the other kids.

    Awesome Kari!!! We will have a whole boatload, I think. Won't that make for interesting pictures? Rob will surely share a beer with Wynn.

    Depending on the weather and my mood, I'll either opt for a glass (or should I say plastic cup) of wine or some sort of smoothie.

    I'm really getting excited about this meet!

    It's BOB's family, not mine! :lmao: (MY sister isn't arriving until Monday! LOL)
    Bob's DB and DSIL live in Jacksonville. Last year they drove down and met us for dinner our last night. As nice as it was to see them, it took away from the whole day - since we weren't sure "exactly" what time they would arrive. oh well. Considering we rarely spend time with HIS family and my BIG ITALIAN FAMILY is ALWAYS around... I guess I have to put up with it. :goodvibes

    Mass at the shrine is 6pm... I'm going to see if there is a closer Catholic church with an earlier mass on Saturday evening.

    Bob will join Rob & Wynn for that beer - I will gladly have a glass of wine - or isn't Mexico right near there? Margarita's anyone?! :drinking1

    I'll keep you posted on our plans...

    I think that it is great that you are still taking time to go to church even on vacation. You make me feel bad...but not that bad! :rolleyes:

    Oooh...and margaritas sound scrumptious! [​IMG]

    I personally am taking my vacation from church as well. I am the preschool Sunday school teacher (for the past 6 years!), on the church council, the Education committee, and chair of the 30th Anniversary planning committee. I am churched out!! I can hardly wait to sleep late on a Sunday morning! :cloud9:

    Kari - sounds a bit like my resume, too. :goodvibes I am the librarian for the parish school (where Dana has attended the past 9 years), I am a cantor (leader of song) every week, assistant direct the children's choir, Bob is a Eucharistic Minister, until recently we were "team couples" for Pre-Cana (marriage preparation classes), Bob's served on the strategic planning committee and the finance committee, and I was the Education Council secretary for four years. ;) You might say we are "involved".. :goodvibes

    DM- we always find the local Catholic church if we are away on the weekend. We've been to the neatest churches all over. It's part of the vacation experience for us.
    One of my favorite churches is up near Rocking Horse Ranch in the beginning of the Catskills... tiny little place... the priest pulled me aside as we were leaving and said, "You! Where did you come from??!! I heard you singing!!" It was very cute.
    Another fun experience was in Bermuda - we took a taxi to Saturday evening mass... then couldn't find one to get us back! I was about to call the resort concierge to have him send us one, when the priest noticed us and had a parishioner drive us back!! Very nice woman - we had a great conversation as she told us her experiences coming from Canada and living in Bermuda!

    Just more things to add to our vacation memories! ;)
