    No worries there, I am a slow and steady TR updater :rotfl:

    It was a great first day as an engaged couple, I really love EPCOT more each time I go too, I always find something new there

    I think Stitch is cute, but boy do they overuse him, I wish we would see more of some other characters

    We had an ADR for lunch at

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This was both of our first times dining at Chefs. I ordered a glass of white wine and Tim had a yummy cocktail, I can’t remember what exactly was in it, but it was DELICIOUS! I think it may have had champagne in it.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    We both ordered from the Prix Fixe 3 course menu.

    Lobster Bisque to start…probably the BEST I've ever had anywhere!

    [​IMG]

    The baked macaroni with cream and gruyere cheese …yum!! But way too much to finish

    [​IMG]

    And for dessert we actually differed. I ordered the Profiteroles au chocolat - Puff choux with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce

    And Tim had a chocolate cake that I can’t seem to find on the menu … both were really good!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This was probably our favorite meal of the entire trip, yes over Le Cellier even :eek:

    It didn’t hurt that this little fellow came by to say hello. He was adorable!! I love that we got to see him in action. His handler said to Remy about our just engaged buttons “Those buttons mean they are not brother and sister Remy” He was so funny!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After our huge lunch we continued to tour WS and I grabbed some Honey wine from Ireland…not my favorite…Tim tried it and hated it…he calls this my picture with the worst wine in the world.

    [​IMG]

    Had to take a cute picture of Donald and Daisy…I don’t feel like you see enough of these two around. I wanted to get a picture of us in front of it, but was a little tipsy and just snapped a picture as we walked by

    [​IMG]

    We played a Kim Possible mission or two while we were in WS. I am glad they changed this to a Phineas and Ferb theme, I can’t wait to play the game with Agent P now!

    I was nice and rode Mission Sickness with Tim on this day…just the green side and then he did the orange side by himself. I can’t handle the rides that really spin like that one, but he loves it! While he was on the ride I bought him a Star Wars vinylmation to add to his collection. We ended up taking almost the whole Start Wars collection home that trip :thumbsup2

    After some more shopping and a few more Future World rides, we headed out to DTD for even more shopping :rotfl:

    We had dinner at EoS. I didn’t take any pictures, because I was on a mission to have the holiday sandwich and it was awesome of course!

    Glad we grabbed a few shots of this, I hear it may be going away at least temporarily due to an accident on the one in Hong Kong

    We were exhausted and headed to POP. We needed to rest up, because the next day was our last full day of the trip

    I like Chefs de France. I've had wonderful meals there and a few mediocre ones. Love Remy!

    Glad to hear Le Chefs was a hit! Based on your photos, all the dishes looked delicious, especially the dessert! :thumbsup2


    I agree with you on the motion rides...I have to stick to the green side, as well.



    I also heard about the balloon incident...at least you were able to catch it up in the air this go round!

    Mmm I love Chef's, we have an ADR there for November and I can't wait! :cool1: Remy is so cute!

    OMG I can't wait for the Holiday Sandwich at Earl of Sandwich! :dance3: I have a Le Cellier ADR for lunch for our arrival day, but I need to find somewhere to squeeze in a holiday sandwich when we first get there, it's SO good!

    Great update; we've never been to Chefs (but I think Nicki has planned that for our surprise December trip for Mark's 60th). I love Remy...so cute.

    Hopefully our next trip will be as good, we booked it again for September, fingers crossed!!

    I am starting to get more and more worried about my motion sickness and the cruise for our honeymoon :scared:

    I can't wait to eat there again soon on our honeymoon...so yummy!!

    Thank goodness..my little cousin wants to go on it too...you guys can be a cute little family riding together :rotfl2:

    Yay!! Love the love of Chefs here :thumbsup2 We have it booked for the honeymoon and its sad but I plan on getting the same exact thing to eat!

    I can't wait to have the holiday sandwich too...it was just that good!! soo many things I want to eat, good thing this is all after the wedding!

    It was a sweet wine..but also syrup tasting...and a weird aftertaste :rotfl2: I still drank it all since I paid for it :rotfl:

    I can't wait to do some more Disney shopping...so many things I need to add to our collections :rotfl:

    You gotta try it!! at least once...plus remy is a great guy to meet :thumbsup2

    I hope you guys get to try it, I think you would really enjoy it!! :goodvibes

    I was really worried about getting motion sickness on my cruise, as well. Just remember to bring Dramomine. You can always "feel" the boat moving, but if you take some medicine, it settles your stomach. Trust me, when I was on board, we passed through a small tropical storm, and there was one night where I couldn't stand up straight due to rocking. I took some Dramomine, though, and it helped a ton. :thumbsup2



    It's so exciting that your wedding is coming up! :goodvibes

    Mmm, that mac and cheese looks good! I had to go back and read your Chefs part again, because I was just looking at Chefs menu yesterday and didn't see this on there. Then realized I skipped over your 'Prix Fixe' part. Too bad that's not on the regular menu.

    Oh gosh...dare I ask what happened to the one in Hong Kong?!?:eek:

    I will make sure to be extra stocked up on medication just in case and take some before we even get on the boat to be safe :thumbsup2 I also have some ginger candies, etc. which are supposed to help ease your stomach a little bit

    I would ask if they could just do the mac and cheese, it was that good!! :)

    There was an accident with the one at Hong Kong, I believe it had a leak and fell...a few people were injured but not seriously thank goodness!

    We were off bright and early to AK on our last full day.

    We got all the way to AK and I remembered I left my hair straightener plugged in at POP. I think at that moment Tim may have considered asking for the ring back, because I do this all the time at home too. I decided instead of extra bus rides I would call POP and ask housekeeping to unplug it. It was a process, but they agreed they would.

    Before we were even in the park, I spotted my favorite Disney CM the photopass photographer!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Finally I allowed Tim to go into the actual park and fairly shortly after we halted for a few more pictures. In all fairness, I like to get these pictures done early so my hair is still normal looking and while there are no lines

    [​IMG]

    The photographer kept telling Tim he needed to look up at her, apparently he was amazed by invisible Simba at the moment, because he wasn’t listening at all. I think the picture we ended up with was better anyway.

    [​IMG]

    And of course some tree pictures

    [​IMG]

    I liked this background, that was the first time they had us move that way over by the tree

    [​IMG]

    I guess this guy just runs wild everywhere, because he interrupted us again!

    [​IMG]

    Typically I go straight for the safari, but instead we headed towards EE. We grabbed some EE fastpasses and went to ride Dinosaur with a very short wait. I do love EE and the safari very much, but I think Dinosaur is my favorite ride at AK. It gets me every time!

    Too cheap to buy the picture, but kind of wished I had purchased it!

    [​IMG]

    EE was great as well

    [​IMG]

    Our EE area photopass pictures

    [​IMG]

    AK has a lot of sidewalks to fix!!

    [​IMG]

    Off to find our safari..with distractions along the way!

    Great update, Shannon. I often call Andy at home to check to be sure I unplugged my curling iron.:rotfl2:

    And I'm with you....the earlier the photo pass pictures, the better. And yours are great.:thumbsup2

    Great pics from AK!!!

    I brought some Bonine on our recent cruise but nobody needed it. I think the seas were a little rougher than usual because there was a Tropical Storm in the Gulf. We could feel the movement but it wasn't an issue. And Tom and Nathaniel are both a little sensitive to that. (Tom can't ride Tea Cups.)
