    Oh Beaches and Cream. I love that place! I have yet to be disappointed by it. So yummy and so reasonably priced. I drooled when I saw your pictures of it.

    I'm sorry about the blisters! When I got back from my trip in November, I had some trouble with that too for quite some time.

    Haha no problem! :)

    It's so so good! And yes, I know! It really is therapeutic and calming.. especially when it's Disney characters!

    It really is. It's definitely a "must-do" for us from here on out! Those onion rings were SO good... and yes, the No Way Jose was amazingly good. I could eat peanut butter sauce every day! :laughing:

    Haha, that's a decent guess, I will say!


    Ugh that's probably why I get them in the WEIRDEST spots! I have bad ankles from playing basketball in high school and they've never really healed properly. I brought two pair of sneakers but the problem was that they BOTH gave me blisters but in different spots! Terrible, haha.

    It's wonderful! And I agree, the decor is very cute! The food is super delicious!

    And thanks, it was a beautiful night there!


    Haha, SO many people commented on that shirt wondering where he got it! (Target).. And I agree, I like those photos a lot. They make me happy!


    Hey, like you said, it's never too late to join! And thank you, we like to laugh and smile a LOT, haha. We have two doggies, they're best buddies. Anya just doesn't like toys like Milo does. :goodvibes thanks for commenting!


    I know right?! I just love it! I was eyeing the Milky Way and I think I will have to try that one next time!!

    Thank you! You definitely should go there, it's so good! Bummer for your husband though because the ice cream is heavenly!


    I know, it's just such a good experience. I wish I could be there right now! And yes, blisters are the worst. I even went in prepared with moleskin and everything and I swear it made them WORSE! But I survived.

    It was amazingly good! I'd highly suggest it to anyone! The peanut butter sauce is to die for on that sundae! :cloud9:

    Chapter Fourty-One: "ARE YOU DANI?!"
    Day 10: January 27th, 2012​


    After getting off of SE, we met with M and A by the fountain and told them we needed to go check out Club Cool (mwahahaha)...

    I explained the different sodas to them, trying not to give away the whole Beverly trick. I told them nonchalantly that Beverly was pretty good, and that resulted in the following photo sequence of M trying Beverly (while I secretly took photos of her drinking it)...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    She laughed so hard after trying it and I showed her the photos. A said she wanted to try it, even though she was aware it tasted like poop.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Why is it so hilarious to pull the Beverly prank on unsuspecting people?! Perhaps because we've all been that unsuspecting person at one point or another...

    We headed out of Club Cool and it was around 8:30 at this point, so we decided to go get margaritas in Mexico... On our way over, I had to run to the bathroom, and as I was coming out, I saw some random man talking to Matt and patting him on the shoulder. I quickly thought to myself that no, I do not know this man, why is he patting Matt? I walked over and Matt, M and A were all laughing.

    Apparently the guy saw Matt's Duck Tales shirt and stopped, gasped, and asked Matt where he'd gotten it. Matt told him he could find it in MouseGears, and that's when the guy patted Matt on the shoulders, closed his eyes and thanked him VERY much from the heart. It was bizarre but also hilarious.

    Matt had gotten NONSTOP compliments on his Duck Tales shirt all day, both from guests AND CMs! It was funny because we'd seen the shirt at multiple shops during our trip, but people just seemed like they'd never seen that or his Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers shirt EVER. I think Matt enjoyed the compliments. :)

    We arrived in Mexico, where M and A insisted they pay for my margarita as a small thank you for taking them around Disney World all day, which was really nice! Funny part is I didn't need my ID after all. Guess I finally look over 21, haha, though it's nice being ID'ed every so often.

    Anyway, I went with the Fiesta margarita, because guys, it's a party in your mouth!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    If I remember correctly, it was mango, strawberry and lemon. VERY VERY good and totally worth the $9.50 or whatever it was. It lasted forever! We decided to find a spot to watch Illuminations from, and took a few photos of us together..

    [​IMG]

    M ended up sending a few people back at work the photo of us together, and everyone said it looked like we were having fun!

    Soon enough, Illuminations began..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    M and A really enjoyed it. They had ended up not going to HS and instead took a nap, so they hadn't eaten dinner yet and were pretty hungry. I suggested a stop at the CS in Mexico since it was nearby, and they bought nachos and we sat and chatted while they ate.

    After they were finished, we slowly walked through WS, and stopped in Germany so Matt could get a beer and a pretzel..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Mmmm, that Oktoberfest beer is DELIGHTFUL! I made sure he got the awesome souvenir mug, of course, and we both enjoyed the beer and pretzel. While M and A were shopping, I ran and got a picture of one of my favorite things in Germany...

    [​IMG]

    PICKLE TREE!!! (I love pickles)..

    M and A ended up running to Italy to get wine, while Matt and I headed over to the little bridge area, and we took some nice photos until people showed up and wanted to be on the bridge...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We made our way through France, then went to England so we could talk on the phones. I'd told them about how I'd call people on the phones, so I did that while we all giggled like 5 years olds.

    Then M and A wanted to get photos at the phone booth, and while I was standing near one the phone rang! I had 5 minute phone call with a girl who talked like a Valley girl and asked if I'd watched The Bachelor (random!).. When I asked if the girl was enjoying her trip in Disney they claimed they were in San Francisco.. Pretty sure I heard them near a crowd, so that's why I asked..

    Now that I look back, this would've been way better if they'd pretended they were like, DJ or Stephanie Tanner, hahaha.

    After my bizarre phone call, we started to walk to Canada... when suddenly I hear someone run up to me from behind and ask, "ARE YOU DANI?!"

    I turned around and didn't recognize the woman, but she quickly told me her name was Erin and she recognized me from my PTR on the DIS! HOW FUNNY! Haha, I felt like a celebrity in that moment, in a weird way! Unfortunately she didn't tell me what her DISname was, though I think it might've been rudegirle? Not sure, but she was super nice and said she just wanted to say hi to me super quickly, and then ran away.

    M and A were confused by this, so Matt kind of explained it to them quickly that I basically posted online, etc. They just thought it was funny, more than anything else!

    I, in the meantime, totally thought I was cool because someone recognized me from here! Haha.

    After hanging out in Canada, we headed out the International Gateway exit and said our goodbyes to M and A. They thanked us again for being their Disney tour guides, and told us they really had a ton of fun.

    Matt and I hobbled back to our room and crashed. We were totally exhausted but ended up having a really fun day!

    Tomorrow is our last day in Disney World. Technically we don't leave til Sunday, but we're up at 4am for an early flight, so tomorrow really is our final day in the parks. Such a bummer, since I don't want this TR to end (though you'll get to follow us back home, so I guess we do have 2 more days of updates), but the show must go on!

    Margaritas and Illuminations - that sounds like the perfect Epcot evening to me!! :thumbsup2

    Too funny that you were able to trick your friends with the Beverly! It's weird, Wingnut actually kind of likes it!! :confused3

    Yay for being recognized from the Dis!

    Okay, here's the thing about my weird husband. I pointed out the Rescue Ranger and Duck Tales shirts to him, and he was like, "Meh, I think that was after my time."

    He's not even 32 yet. I know I'm younger (28, will be 29 on April 4...also Brynn's birthday, BTW), but REALLY!?!?! If your childhood did not include these shows, it must be so sad! And I can say this with full confidence because we did not even have cable when I was a child and I had to watch it at my grandma's house or at the babysitter's house and could not enjoy it at home. In my mind, that was a tragedy. But a life without it?? Catastrophic!

    I'm not really sure how I feel about being married to a man who does not feel giddy at the site of these shirts. Seven years I've been married to this man! And now I learn this!?!

    Also, I am trying a "party in my mouth" next trip:thumbsup2. And I'm pretty sure I'm making my children try Beverly. I am an awesome mom.

    Any margarita at Epcot is like a party in your mouth. For sure! :thumbsup2

    How awesome that you got recognized! I would feel like I was famous or something. I have sadly never been recognized at WDW. Oh well. :laughing:

    OH the Beverley photos. CLASSIC! I only wish someone in my family had known to take photos of us trying it (we tried them all not knowing ANYTHING about the sodas. SO FUNNY!)

    I don't know anything about alcohol but hooray for your margaritas! Yours looks like a smoothie so it looks good hahah.

    ILLUMINATIONS! Love it so so much. And that pretzel looks delicious! OOOH YUM... soft pretzels are one of my favorite things ever!

    Hahha every time you say "M and A did this and that" I always think of me and my sister. I'm Marissa, she's Anna. Hahha. Random. Sorry bout THAT!

    Umm your phone call sounds awkward! Hahaha UM, THEORY. Maybe they were on the San Francisco section of Streets of America... pretending! Hmmm? :rotfl:

    That's awesome that you got recognized! Hahha I want to be recognized too! Awesome!

    Oh my gosh. I can't believe you're almost finished! Ugh.

    I love the pickle tree !!! I bought a pickle ornament one year in October and got it home safely (it's very delicate) and when I went to put it on our Christmas Tree it slipped out of my hand and fell to the floor and smashed into a million pieces !!! :mad: So I of course had to buy one the next year and I still have it and am very careful about putting it up every year.

    Your trip report has been such a joy to read, I don't want it to end.

    Okay yeah, that IS weird! He was totally at the right age for it! Matt loved them and he will be 30 in June this year. Funny part is, while I liked them, I was not super into them like Matt was. But regardless, when I saw them, I was totally telling Matt he just HAD to buy them.

    Good call on the margarita! It's so good. And I'm sorry, if you don't make your kids go through a Beverly experience, I mean, come on now. Every kid must try it. Guess I'm going to be Mom of the year over here when I make my future kids try it, hahaha.


    It was a blast. I wish I could be in Disney World right now so bad. I miss it dearly... I swear it's like, you come back and you're okay for awhile, but then a few months later it hits you REALLY hard as to how much you miss it!

    Pickles are the best. As are Christmas trees full of pickles!

    Haha it's the truth, margaritas are the best!

    I did feel like I was sort of famous or something! It was totally hilarious and awesome. It would be kind of awesome if it happened again!

    Hello! I'm totally glad you are enjoying my TR! :) Beach Club is truly wonderful! I am hoping we'll be back there on our next trip, but we'll see. The walk to Epcot was amazing! We loved being a 5 minute walk from there!

    Haha I thought so! Hopefully it'll happen again on my next trip! DISmeets are so fun! I don't think she is on here very much (if it's her), but I was thinking the same thing!

    That's so sad about your poor pickle, after taking such care! Those pickles tend to be pretty fragile. We have one now, too! And thank you, I really don't want it to end. :( But I have to finish it! Gotta start working on Day 11 here soon.

    Oh what a mean trick with the Beverly! I SO didn't do the same exact thing to Anna... Oh wait, I did. SO worth it! :lmao:

    Matt for sure picked the 2 coolest shirts ever. Definite attention grabbers. :thumbsup2

    I split one of those margaritas with my mom, it was excellent! I thought it was mango, strawberry and original lime. :confused3 I can't remember.

    I'm glad you made sure Matt got the souvenir mug. :) The pretzel looks yummy too. The pickle tree is cute, but I despise pickles. I know, I'm probably un-American because of that.

    Cute bridge pictures! I really regret not spending enough time in the WS. I didn't even get to call the phones!

    I remember you texting me about being recognized! You're a DIS celeb!

    Hi guys. Apologies for no update today; I didn't have time to do it last night. Well, I guess I did, but I chose playing a board game with Matt over sitting down and writing my TR, soooo, yeah, I'd say it's a pretty good excuse (oh, and I won the game, so even better!)..

    Anyway, the reason I'm writing this is because I have some pretty darn awesome news...

    :yay: :yay: :yay: WE ARE GOING BACK TO DISNEY WORLD!!!:yay: :yay: :yay:

    Can I just state how wonderful it is to have a ticker back in my signature?! AND THAT IT INCLUDES BOTH THE MONORAIL AND WALL-E?! :banana:

    To be fair, we've had this planned since we returned. However, this trip will be different, because as of right now, we are actually planning on bringing two of our best friends (who are married to each other) with us.. I've actually mentioned them both in this TR.. They're the ones who were taking care of our dogs/watched our house during this fun trip!

    Quick story... This will be our only opportunity to go with our friends, kid-free, because we're planning on trying for kids sometime in 2013 (I know, crazy, it slightly weirds me out a bit to say that, haha).. So this will probably be our last big trip to Disney World for a few years.

    That's not to say that I won't try to sneak in a trip or two in to Disneyland (I've never been there but it's a LOT more inexpensive of a trip for us since we're on the west coast!)..

    Oh, and as of right now, we're planning on being there from January 24th - February 3rd, 2013. This MIGHT change, but for now we're sticking with those dates.

    I'll get into all the nitty gritty details (there's already DUH-RAMAAAA happening; no, planning is not always sunshine and rainbows) in my PTR when I'm done with this TR, but I just HAD to share that yes, we are returning, and though it won't be for another 9 months or so, WE WILL BE BACK! :)

    Aiming to have the first part of Day 11 up tomorrow, so stay tuned!
