BEVERLY!!! We made our way over to Club Cool and went inside to rehydrate. We have never visited Club Cool before, but since Ive joined Disboards, Ive seen a lot of descriptions about a certain drink and how disgusting it is. Club Cool was somewhat crowded, so I grabbed a couple of cups and filled them up while DW waited back a little way with the stroller. We started on the left side of the dispenser and worked our way across. I finally reached the dispenser labeled Beverly and I gave myself a little pep talk in my head. I was ready for it. I put the cup to my lips. I took a sip I I... hmm Did I get the right thing? Lets try it again. I filled the cup back up, yes, this one is definitely from the Beverly dispenser and it tastes the same. I guess the nastiness of it was so overhyped that my expectations werent met. Now, if I were thirsty, paying for a drink and had to choose from the drinks available in that dispenser to fill my cup with, Mezzo Mix would be my choice, hands down. I definitely wouldnt choose to drink Beverly when other options are available, but if I was thirsty and it was the only thing available, I wouldnt have a problem drinking it. I really thought the Japan drink was worse. DW on the other hand thought Beverly was the most disgusting thing she had ever tasted. DS was just happy that I was letting him drink whatever I was drinking. Having experienced the wonders of Beverly, we decided to head back over to take our complementary Visa picture. We didnt know who wed get to see, but they pulled back the curtain and we were greeted by the main cheese and his pet dog. DS still didnt want to get down and walk to them, but he was interested in Mickey and gave him a 5 and interacted a bit. Pluto came over to join in the fun, however, and was denied. Poor Pluto. We had talked about meeting up with our CM friend on Wednesday or Thursday, so we thought wed call her and see what she had planned for the evening. It turned out she had some things to take care of this evening before her brothers got in to town, but we made plans to meet up with them all on Friday. We had been walking aimlessly while trying to call her and arrived in front of a beautiful Christmas tree. We took a left at the T and grabbed some Mickey ice cream bars from a cart before parking the stroller and heading in to ride Its a Small Mexico!!! As it would turn out, DS LOVED this ride. I think he liked riding in the boat and seeing all the different scenes, but most importantly, he loved finding Duck participating in his many different activities as we chased him through Mexico. Our next stop was Maelstrom in Norway. We enjoyed the ride, but walked through the theater after we left the boat. We needed a quick restroom break, so we stopped at the restrooms between Norway and Mexico. I was sitting outside with DS waiting on DW and the Norway Christmas story had just ended. We never caught that story time, but the story tellers came through on their way backstage. They were chatting with everyone as they passed by and I was blown away with how well they were improvising and staying in character on their way out. It was just a little bit extra Disney magic to be able to enjoy. DW wanted to go to Mouse Gears to look around, so I headed to Test Track to grab myself some FPs and told her Id meet her in Mouse Gears. Once I found them, I took the stroller so she could shop. DS was trying to grab everything he could reach, so I decided to take him outside. We walked out the door and I had just found a place to sit down when all of a sudden, DS starts yelling. Shoe! Shoe! Uh, oh. We lost a shoe. I tried to retrace my steps and we even went back into the store to look around the area where he started getting antsy. We couldnt find it anywhere. I found a CM and asked him if there was a lost and found in the store and he told me Id have to check with Guest Relations in an hour or 2. At the same time, DW was checking with another CM. After a quick call, it turned out there was a CM walking around carrying a shoe, looking for the prince who lost it. She quickly found us and returned the shoe and spent some time talking to DS. He loved the attention. It was another great CM interaction for us. We left Mouse Gears and headed back to the Land to use our Soarin FPs after a quick stop to pick up our free Visa picture. DW rode first while I took DS to the restroom and changed him into jeans. We then headed to Sunshine Seasons and got some grapes, apple sauce and chocolate milk. DW came out, and I gave her my FP and told her to ride again. DS and I just hung out and enjoyed our snacks. DW came back and said she was hungry. She looked at the menus for Sunshine Seasons, but didnt see anything she wanted to eat. We decided instead to cross the park once again and grab some food in Mexico.
