    If someone made a face like that at me as I was leaving WDW, I'd have to answer back with something and it rhymes with rutt.....;)

    When does that happen? You get bumped from a flight and get to your destination sooner? When? When? Nice start to vacation.

    The FL air so nice, so humid......

    that sandwich looks good.

    Good Morning everyone! And thanks for all of the comments!! If any couple on Earth were smarty pants and smart a**es... it's us!!:rotfl2: Glad I could make you jealous for the day!

    And Tyson... you WILL be here. And when we come, we'll be at The BOARDWALK! And we'll be here for 7 days. Hang in there buddy!

    Today is our Epcot day! We will be trying to ride as much as we can (Since it has been annoyingly crowded, and we are having to wait much longer than we wanted). We are looking forward to trying the Sum of All Thrills exhibit at Innoventions. We have lunch reservations at the San Angel Inn in Mexico. Salsa... mmmmmmmmm..... Then we have a date with Voices of Liberty, which we will probably watch all afternoon! We have dinner at Le Chefs de France (a new one for us) with Candlelight Processional, and the most AMAZING Illuminations and Holiday finale ever!

    I've been battling some kind of cold ever since we left, too. Which has been a bit of an inconvenience. But with Cold-Eze and lots of Advil, I've been getting along fine!

    Thanks again for hanging out and for making your fun comments everyone!

    So when I last left you, we were headed to one of the best rides on Disney property:
    [​IMG]

    We were anxious to see how crowded it was going to be, and as we approached the wait time sign, it had 13 minutes on it!:cool1: Yes! That usually means to wait! But no sooner had I dug my camera out of my bag... this happened:
    [​IMG]
    :headache:DOH!

    Not a problem. We are in no rush. We hopped in line, which actually extended out the door and into the trellis area.

    [​IMG]

    It truly was a 40 minutes wait... but well worth it! Great ride!

    Up next,

    [​IMG]

    We past this awesome sign on the way in. CAN'T WAIT!

    [​IMG]

    Time to battle it out in TSM! Of course, there were no fast passes left... dang crowds. But we sucked it up once again, and got in the SEVENTY minute standby line. UGH! At least we had our iPhones, and we weren't lugging around a napping child (like the last time we were in this line!)

    Here was the entertaining, yet equally annoying part. We were behind a family with small children, who let their kids do whatever they want! They spent a majority of the time on the wrong side of the bars, climbing on, touching, hiding behind, all of the set pieces. I couldn't believe a CM didn't come swooping in to correct the situation!
    [​IMG]

    Seriously? Here I am trying to distract myself by taking pictures of other things:
    [​IMG]

    But I just kept coming back to these kids!
    [​IMG]

    When we got to Mr. Potato Head, I was waiting for them to run under the bars and go climb on him!!
    [​IMG]

    But they didn't.

    I have a concern about Mr. Potato Head. We had to listen to him for an hour. We had to hear the same jokes over and over. Disney HAS to know how slow-moving and painful that standby line is. Can't they give him more material? PLEASE?!?!?!:guilty:

    Ok people, I have never tried so hard in my life to win one of these ride games. I'm usually with one of my children, so winning isn't so important. But today? Today I was desperate. My arm was SO SORE!!! I thought for sure I had done it...
    [​IMG]Yeah... that's my score on the left...:sad2: He KILLED ME!!

    [​IMG]

    And such a good sport about it, too....
    [​IMG]


    That's it for now.. time to head to Epcot!! Have a great day, everyone!!

    I have never beat my husband's score on either Toy Story ride. I let him think I allow him to win.

    Thanks for all the pictures.

    Good evening everyone! Sorry I haven't taken time to reply to you each individually! But my time is precious! Matt and I are getting ready to get tucked in for our last night here:sad1:

    Today was a CLASSIC adults-only day. Our kids would've been bored to death!

    Some highlights:

    Sleeping in!
    Watching VoL 4 times in a row and hearing their yuletide songs.. incredible!
    Stuffing ourselves silly in two different countries.
    Enjoying the Candlelight Processional.
    Spending lots of time just bench-hopping and taking it all in.

    Oh.. and we did manage to squeeze in a ride on Soarin' - top row, center section, of course!

    I'll hopefully do a big update tomorrow while we are waiting at the airport. Then it'll be back to the grind on Thursday! At least I have Christmas break waiting for me just around the corner, so I can finish this baby up then!

    Good night!

    Loved Loved Loved your latest installment. It made my day yesterday (just didn't have time to respond since I read it at WORK on my lunch hour). Looks like you guys are having an amazing time. Sorry you got schooled on Toy Story, Tim does that to me every time, I ALMOST had him (up until the last screen) this past summer, but he got me!!! Those kids in the line were crazy, I can't believe some parents!
    Have a safe trip home! Can't wait to read more!:surfweb:
