    I love the Hofbrauhaus, but I am German :scratchin I had one of the best nights of my life there. We had so much fun standing on tables, singing and drinking great beer. I got in the strong person contest, which consisted of holding your arm out straight while holding a beer stein. I did not win, but outlasted quite a few men, so I was pretty proud of myself. :cool1:

    I have had a couple of yogurt parfaits lately that keep the berries and yogurt separate from the granola- NICE!:thumbsup2

    I would love that! It's very cool!:flower3:

    It was especially beautiful this year- I don't think I am going this spring- we are planning on F&W instead with friends before our cruise. :thumbsup2

    Thanks I will be with 8 Dev. Disabled so a drinking party is OUT:rotfl2: We will have to eat on the Strip as will not have a vehicle . I saw there is a MacDonalds in or near Harrah's which I now know is where we are staying . So that may be a good breakfast option as we will not be travelling far for that meal.. These guys love to eat.:rotfl2: I see lots of buffets and I am sure we will try a few . I also have learned of LOTS of Free stuff to see at different hotels , and Harrah's has a Free Show BIG ELVIS!!!!:rotfl2:
    Thanks for your in put !!

    Ok- I'm back for an update! Only one more baseball trip (this weekend with Tyler to Connecticut) and then I will be able to focus better! But here is something to keep you amused in the meantime (really all I am doing is avoiding weeding my overgrown and neglected garden)...

    After leaving the cutest littlest mousketeer, I headed to the boat to DHS....

    See you in December, Stormalong Bay....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I texted drea as soon as I arrived, and she said she was on line for Woody and Buzz- so I hightailed it over there, hoping that I might be able to get in line with her, too- The Cms told me to just wait at the exit, and I could go in when I saw it was her turn. :)

    [​IMG]

    Next, we made a beeline for

    [​IMG]

    We grabbed FPs and got right on the single rider line.

    But don't sing any songs about it-

    Because with all the big school groups in the standby line, there was no need for any single riders- we actually never made it past the 1st CM, and we waited a while, and would have been next. But we weren't goin anywhere on that line.

    So....we did the next best thing- we went to have some lunch.

    I had been DYING to try a certain hot dog for a looooong time- it's at Fairfax Faire. So that's where we went....

    [​IMG]

    We did get one of each, and decided to split them. We also got

    [​IMG]

    It all looked like this-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And Drea looked like this-

    [​IMG]

    OK- so we started by sharing the bbq pork/cole slaw dog. It was good, but it wasn't what I was so excited about. The one I was DYING for? The world's BEST hot dog- the one that makes me salivate as I am typing right now- with mac & cheese, bacon bits, and truffle oil.

    O.M.G.

    It was BEYOND amazing!! SOOOOOO delicious!!! I really need to go back and have it again!! And again!!

    Then we split the cupcake-

    [​IMG]

    And it was just Meh- I wish I would have saved up the calories and had the peanut butter chocolate one at Starring Rolls instead. Next time......

    We thought it would be a good idea after that to hit Star tours. Especially because it was a walk on, pretty much.

    [​IMG]

    We asked if we could be in the front- because every time I have been on this ride, I have been in the back row- Drea, too! What up with THAT??? So feeling VERY special, we took our seats in the FRONT ROW!!!Here's Drea feeling very excited about her trip to Endor-

    [​IMG]

    Afterwards, I think we used our FPs on RnRC? And tried to hit ToT- but even though they were posting 20 minutes stand-by, the line was OUT THE BEGINNING ENTRANCE! That ain't no 20 minute wait, my friend. :eek: Drea has a theory about it- and I think she's right. Anyway, those school groups aof 200 teens getting on rides together was REALLY putting a damper on our ability to ride....only one solution for that-

    Time to head to EPCOT! We have some other friends to meet up with and we are going to do some activities those pesky school groups won't be a part of.

    Bye bye star studded car-

    [​IMG]

    And DHS and all the school groups- YUCK!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Time for a boat ride...

    [​IMG]

    And we got off here-

    [​IMG]

    And walked by here-

    [​IMG]

    All to get to THIS-

    [​IMG]

    A GUARANTEED school group-less, no teen activity. GENIUS!!

    Up next....

    And then there were 4...and MORE!

    LOL- Depends what your idea of great is- I rode 10 miles on my bike this morning and then weeded my overgrown garden for 4 hours. :rotfl: My back is KILLING me.... I didn't do any weeding in June due to Cicada Invasion 2013, and I paid the price IN FULL today, lol-

    But thanks, and happy 4th to you too!:goodvibes


    Thanks mucho and back at ya- raising a glass of well-deserved Rose as I type...:flower3:

    It was EVERYONE!!! Cheerleaders, bands, chorus groups....EVERYONE under the age of 18, I am fairly certain, was in WDW that weekend! :rotfl:

    And GO GRANDMA!!! :dance3::yay::dance3: Sounds like they sure do notice all the planning you do!

    Oh what a fun update! Well except for the bazillion teen school groups messing with your ride mojo. I has NO idea those hot dogs existed, I just showed Evan the picture and we must try the Mac and cheese one in Dec! Seriously yum.

    Almost as good as a slushie. Almost :)

    Well, I guess if you can't be a single rider, you might as well have lunch! It's great when you can just be all about doing what works and just enjoy being there.
