    It looks like you guys had the Turf Club to your selves, I'm glad the food was good and everyone enjoyed the food.
    The boys looked adorable in their "green" outfits, it was cool that Brian had one too. :goodvibes

    The food does look and sound delicious at Turf Club!

    What a great day with shopping, dinner at Boma, and swimming at the AKL! Does it get any better?

    After your relaxing day, I bet you were all ready to hit the parks again!

    Thank you so much! We really enjoyed Turf Club! It was great just relaxing that day!

    Thank you! I am glad reading our report is helping you get ready for your trip!!

    Thanks Tammy! I love those "green" t-shirts too! There is a few X-mas phot ops at DTD!

    Very true! Thanks!

    Thanks! Yes, Bryan LOVED his massage! Sorry you got so soaking wet, what a bummer! There are 2 sized tubs you can purchase to fill with legos. One is about $8-9 and the big one is $13-15! once you have it filled the cashier will add some more to it and then tape the lid down! It is just like the potato heads, the more strategically you place them, the more you can fit!! Too funny about your 23 year old! I like to play with the kids sometimes too! Sssh!

    You are so sweet! Thanks for the compliment! It was nice to actually do my hair and not wear a visor! Bryan did love his gift, thanks!

    WELCOME and thanks so much!! Thanks for posting!

    It sure was!

    Glad you are all caught up! The non park day was JUST what we needed at the time!

    Thanks Erika! Too funny about Jeremy choosing CSR over AKL...who knows how kids minds work? Yes, the Legos are very much like the Potato head thing!

    Yes, Turf Club was great! Our off day was GREAT! The put a ban on all pool hopping the 4th of July weekend so I think it may have been ok when we did it!

    Thanks so much! Bryan loved his massage and the boys really enjoyed putting the goody bags together!

    It was, thanks!

    It was a fun relaxing day! Turf Club is like a hidden gem, never very busy but very good! I ordered the boys shirts on disneyshopping!

    Hi Nichole! I was disappointed about all the closures and breakdowns but it all worked out in the end! Ohana was great as usual, I LOVE it there! Meeting up with Tim and Lesley was great, it was nice to have other kids to entertain and play with our kids and of course it was great that we all got along so well! Too funny about reusing your mugs, maybe Disney will be looking for you and Bryan now!!!

    Thanks Kelly! I thought those pool balls were super cute too! Bryan did enjoy his massage! The Lego thing is VERY similar to the Potato Head thing, same concept! The kids had so much fun with Luke and Lauren, they spent a TON of time with them and still talk about them daily!

    Thanks so much! We LOVE Boma, it never disappoints! You will LOVE staying at the AKL, it is so beautiful! Keep searching for those pics. I would love to see them!!

    Thanks Allyson! La Nouba is great and very different from anything I had ever seen before! Thanks about Abe Lincoln, that has now been written in his baby book!! DIS meets are the BEST!!

    You are so sweet, thank you so much! That green Mickey T is so cute isn't it, glad you got some too! Yes, Bryan can be quite the buster when he wants to be! What we moms go through for Legos and Potato Heads!!

    Thanks Anita! We did basically have Turf Club to ourselves!

    Thanks Jackie, the food was very good! It was the PERFECT day!

    Love your TR! Your boys are so adorable. The Abe Lincoln commented had me on the floor. TOO funny!

    Your MK day sounds like a bummer -- wonder what was up?! Thank goodness you have such a loooong trip to make up for it! ;)

    What a wonderful, relaxing day! We've never stayed longer than a week so I have a hard time giving up my *park* time.

    All your photos are great! Everyone looks so well rested, happy, and ready for more!

    This was it, the day I had been waiting for! It was finally my turn to do something that was ALL FOR ME! It was our morning to eat with the princesses and I was beaming with excitement! I was so happy that my 3 "men" agreed to do this for me!!


    We woke up to Eric all smooshed against Matthew again!

    [​IMG]

    Finally we all got up and dressed and were out the door! We got lucky and got a bus to Epcot within 5 minutes!

    TIMEOUT!!! I have to say we had read HORROR stories about the buses at SSR before we left. We never waited more than 15 minutes and that was only 1 time! Every morning we went to the bus stop, there was a rep from Disney Transportation taking down the times between buses! I was so pleasantly surprised!

    OK back to the TR!

    We arrived at Epcot and only had about 3 families in front of us!

    [​IMG]

    Finally we were let in and we were off to Norway! We took a few empty park pictures on our way! I just LOVE the before the park opening breakfasts, SO PEACEFUL!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We finally arrived at our destination!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It was at this point that my sweet boy Matthew turned to me and said "Mom, I am so happy for you that you finally get to see the princesses"!!!! I'll admit, I teared up and stayed that way as soon as I saw this!

    [​IMG]

    The food was delicious, this is jjust a picture of some of the stuff from the buffet, the hot stuff was brought directly to our table!

    [​IMG]

    Then the beautiful princesses started coming!!!

    [​IMG]

    Aurora was AWESOME, she started twirling her hair and asked the boys if they were here to keep us all safe!!! The boys ATE THAT UP!!!

    This beauty was next!

    [​IMG]

    Snow White said "I feel better knowing you boys are here with us today!"

    Matthew then said to me "Why do they keep saying that?" I had to laugh!

    Next up was Cinderella and I am upset because the picture is dark!

    [​IMG]

    Cinderella said "You boys are very brave and handsome" then she walked away and Eric says "Prince Charming would NOT be happy if he heard her say that"!! That CRACKED us up!

    Next up was Ariel!

    [​IMG]

    She heard me say "Eric" so she stopped and said "Prince Eric, oh my goodness" he blushed and you can tell in the picture how embarrassed he was!

    Bryan said to me Diane you have permagrin! I just couldn't stop smiling! Corny I know but I was just SO HAPPY and the meal was delicious!!! A PERFECT morning!!! A trip highlight for me, for sure!

    After breakfast, we made our way back towards Future World along that building and path that leads to the Test Track area, we stopped to use the bathroom that is over there and this is when it happened...........................





    Bryan coerced us into his world of Disney lawbreaking!! WE WENT UNDER ANOTHER ROPE!!!!!! It was for a good cause....sort of! We were the first to the fastpass machines!!!! Then we got in the standby line and were there first too..............that is why there is no pictures, I was too busy ducking and running!!!!!!

    After the crime!

    [​IMG]

    After Test Track we went to Mission Space!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then it was on to Spaceship Earth!

    [​IMG]

    next it was time to learn how to save some money!

    LUNCH WITH A RAT

    Oh how fun for you to have your princess breakfast! I think after seeing so many little girls those princesses enjoy seeing the boys! I remember when I took my son to see Princess Aurora in Toontown and their interaction was so priceless. I think they get a kick out of the little boys after little girl after little girl!

    And you rebel you jumping the rope! :lmao:

    Diane, I would have had a permagrin, too, from meeting the princesses! I know I did in 2004 when we did the Akershus breakfast! Love all the pics with the boys and the princesses!

    Wow, your boys are such good sports! We are also having breakfast at Akershus, hope my son has as good an attitude as your sons! Love the empty park pictures, can't wait to see it for myself. You guys are too funny with all your sneaking around, I would be too chicken! How awesome to be first in line for the day, though!!!! :goodvibes

    I'm so glad you got your princess breakfast! I have a girl so it's easy for me to get my princess fix but it was extra special for your boys to have that meal for you. Of course, they look like they're enjoying themselves plenty too! :goodvibes

    That's too funny about the Disney lawbreaking! Yay! for being first to ride though.:thumbsup2

    Can't wait for more.popcorn::
