    When I woke up I got ready and poured myself the last of the provisions in some OJ that I got from dinning last night.
    [​IMG]

    I packed up and took a few pics of the room (its your standard value, nothing to write home about)
    But I love the new soap caps!
    [​IMG]

    Elfis and Barb were sharing a room with me. (Please dont judge me)
    [​IMG]

    After I checked my luggage to transfer .. to OKW.. not Key West the city. I hopped on a bus to DTD, figuring I would activate my military pass, shop while I wait for El to arrive.

    It had already started raining here and there
    [​IMG]

    30mins later I was leaving DTD to hop on a bus to OKW to FINALLY meet a Dismom. I was the only one on the bus and the driver was really chatting it up with me (thinking, I still got it lol). So El said give the guy a show so he drops you off 1st .. ! Next time Ill try the show so I dont end up being the last stop! (apparently I dont got it) :headache:

    As the driver is pulling up I see El, Im already grinning from ear to ear, Im so excited were gonna meet.. then I get off and where'd she go? Seriously people got in our way and I couldnt find her.. but once we do we screamed eachothers names and hugged and got misty eyed. Im sure people thought we were cray cray! We should have told them its our 1st time meeting since we met online and Im sure we would have gotten more looks!

    Eventually our bus to Epcot came and off we went to enjoy the rainy day. Well not yet at least!
    [​IMG]

    El asked me where I wanted to go 1st since I dont get out that way as often as her and my reply was, "I dont care, Im just HAPPY to be here!"

    We made it just as the bars were opening (how perfect was our timing!) Since I had taking a LONG bus ride and El was on a LONG flight we were really thirsty. So we found the 1st kiosk we could and dove right in!
    You will see this beverage a few times this weekend.. but it was sooo good I have to show it again this time!
    [​IMG]

    It was so great to toast with this girl.. many many times lol
    [​IMG]

    As we made our way around the world we would window shop also. They had really cute stuff (I wish I would have got the Mickey shape stepping stone now darn it! Oh well Ill make it LOL)
    [​IMG]

    A rainy day at Disney is better than a sunny day at work! (even better when you dont have kids or a hubby whining about it)
    [​IMG]

    Isnt she just adorable! She was so good about taking my pic I eventually got out of my shyness (HA me shy) and made her do it too!
    [​IMG]

    After we made stops in France, Morroco and Italy we thought we better do a ride or 2 to walk off the alcohol LOL.

    El asked me what I wanted to ride 1st since I dont get out that way as often as her and my reply was, "I dont care, Im just HAPPY to be here!"

    Since Test Track was out of commision, I was ok with that since we have Carsland in Dland!
    [​IMG]

    So then our FP's for Soaring were almost ready. When I saw El taking pics of her feet I thought thats a cute shot, but not so cute Nike's LOL and No El I have no clue where this is still
    [​IMG]

    OH OH OHH I know this one.. Its Dland, you know the park BIGGER than WDW! Have you heard that El its BIGGER! lol
    [​IMG]

    But I did find you this, to study before you trip this summer! That way as you ride it you can tell Ty and Tim each city.. Im sure they will want to know!!! lol
    City's in Soarin'

    And yes I DID want to ride Living with the land.. seriously! Every time Ive been with the family they never wanted to do it. So it was a walk on (No clue why it didnt have a long line or need fast passes LOL) and El devirginized me on this ride!
    [​IMG]

    They added some animatronics to this ride we heard.. lol Actually there were CM's grooming and planting things and on our boat some lil kid said are those robots, and the CM's started doing robot moves it was great!
    [​IMG]

    Look ma Im driving the boat (it doesnt happen much on this trip.. I wonder why they dont trust us to be in front? LOL)
    [​IMG]

    I did thanks for asking! (but Im good never having to ride it again LOL)
    [​IMG]

    After Soaring we thought we better make our way to the Contemp for an earlydinner at the Wave. It was really coming down, but its ok we have our rain gear, poncho up girl! Wait is that the RIGHT FINGER? (this will come into play later too!.. wait for it.. wait for it!)
    [​IMG]

    A rainy day at Disney is better than a sunny day at home, a rainy day at disney is better than a sunny day at home... I kept repeating this
    [​IMG]

    It could be worse I could be a WORK!
    [​IMG]

    Gee El I wonder how you got so soaked?
    [​IMG]

    Once we got on the Monorail, El tried to call home, or they tried to call her but she couldnt hear them, or they couldnt hear her?? I dont remember exactly. (I blame it on the Breakfast Oj, Slushy, Wine, and more wine!) So she needed to dry her phone off since it SOMEHOW got wet...? Since she didnt have any part of her dry, I offered her my shirt. Thats what friends are for! Keep Shining, keep smiling, knowing you can always cant on me.. thats for sure!
    [​IMG]

    Rain wasnt to bad most of the day, we would poncho up (this really doesnt come into play YET technically but like El said its just so funny to say!) then 2 seconds later it would stop, and we would poncho down. Great exersice, but bad for your hair and clothes.

    Anyhow, as we got off the monrail we saw the best sight, a Rainbow.. then noticed it just wasnt 1 but a DOUBLE RAINBOW. Some lil girl said "THIS IS the happiest place on earth!" I agreed, we are just into part of day 1 and Im having the time of my life!
    [​IMG]


    Next up... I dont feel so good.. but theres always room for dessert!

    Wonderful!! Welcome!!:goodvibes

    Hey Jill! :cheer2: Thanks for stopping by! You are right- Cinco de Mayo will never be the same- I've spent 2 in a row in Epcot, BOTH were great days! I have no idea where I will be next May 5th, but I can't imagine it will be as fun as this was-

    :rotfl2: At least! This was a very thirsty trip!

    Hey darlin'!:goodvibes And- it sure is! ::yes::

    We did, it improved greatly after the first day, which was not what the weather report was saying, so we were just sooo happy those weather people were SO wrong! :thumbsup2

    Okay since we are now officially onto day two, I'm chiming in. Two years ago I joined these women I had never met for a trip to WDW...what can I say it was awesome and I wanted to go back. I knew that I couldn't join them on a the cruise. Yes I still have fear of a ship tipping over, running out of power or hitting an ice berg. Never let a 9 yr old watch the Poseidon Adventure:rotfl:- seriously if I ever got on a cruise and saw Earnest Borgnine or Shelly Winters I may jump over board....yes I know they are dead. :lmao: Anyway... when it came around again I too said I'm in for the land portion and I'd love to spend an extra day with Miss Lonnie at WDW. After all I was just happy to be there... so I created our button for the weekend

    [​IMG]


    So as those two are dealing with the rain, I start to run around Minnesoder looking for rain gear:confused3. Man that confused people as we were expecting snow the next day. Seriously this is the spring that never happened. I loved all the texts I was getting. At one point I was actually ironing a poncho to seal the side so I wouldn't get wet. :crazy2: yes I was that nuts. I knew I was happy to go and I wasn't going to let some silly rain:beach: make me miss this trip.

    Be honest the only reason you wanted to ride the Land ride is because you were 40 inches!:rolleyes1

    I WANT!!!! :drinking1

    If I ever am lucky enough to do a Mom's only trip to WDW it is my intention to do the right thing and TOTALLY LIE to my children about it.

    "Kids, Mommy has to go to a conference for work. Where is it you ask? Ohio."

    And upon my return?

    "No, that's not a sunburn. That's a rash. From the soap. At the hotel. In Ohio."

    Oh, I'd tell my Mom the truth. She'd help me lie to the kids. She's excellent at it.

    I recharged my old phone to see if by chance I still had our conversation of when I basically invited myself on this years trip, while I was at the dentist to have my right side wisdom teeth extracted. By luck I found it, thank goodness Im a text msg horder! I literally lmao as I found this, dear god I wonder what my dentist thought while I was texting, setting up a vacation as she's yanking teeth out! :lmao:

    Off to the dentist I go

    Cruise or WDW

    The juice is setting in

    Time to pull the top
    [​IMG]

    Ya, so that REALLY happened! No joke! Best part is she knew how wild and crazy I was and El STILL wanted me to vacation with her! If thats not a great friendship I dont know what is? And did you notice the last text was June 2nd... girl doesnt mess around you say your IN she bookes next day. Planner after my own heart!

    Counting down till August when you come to Cali... Miss ya!!!
