    We have an appt for 1 pm at the Top of the World Lounge. As we head over on the path we look hard for Jaime's brick, but we don't find it. The next week Jen goes back and finds it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We made it!
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We are in the lobby for a little bit, and then we are whisked up to the top!

    We are then lead inside the lounge for the DVC presentation.

    [​IMG]

    Where we promptly get more food!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    YUM! The cheesecake on a stick was to die for!

    2 out of 3 of the entourage get picked for the panel. 1 for the youngest DVC owner (Tracey) and 1 for the most Disney cruises (Robin).

    Jaime's flirting today was at an all trip high. Jaime flirting with the old man.
    [​IMG]

    Anna won a photo album

    [​IMG]

    We are brought back down to view the pool area and the models.
    It was really weird seeing the models in Orlando, since they actually have an "outside". I am so use to the ones at Woodfield.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    See outside!
    [​IMG]

    Kim shows us the lovely pull out storage shelving.

    [​IMG]
    (does anyone actually stay here that long that they need this?)

    Jason is wiped out!

    [​IMG]

    We go and sit in a room and talk about numbers with the gang....and Jaime flirts some more.

    [​IMG]

    We got our fastpasses!
    [​IMG]

    Now we are heading for where else? More food! Bring on Beaches N Cream...but how will we get there?

    We did the tour last month and I think I ate 6 of those cheesecake pops! YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

    When we stayed over NYE in a 2 bed we had the kitchen STOCKED over at Kidani; however, this is the Studio! No stove! How many boxes of cereal and Pop Tarts can fit in the kitchen? :laughing:

    I don't even know how many I ate! I think I had 6 just up in the lounge and about 4 more when we were down talking with the guide.

    Yeah we just got back from OKW and I think we put nothing in the cabinet, but we did have a few bags of popcorn and pouches of oatmeal on the counter.:thumbsup2

    So we are now deciding how we will get to Beaches N Cream.

    [​IMG]
    (I love this! Mainly because it was one of my first memories from my trip when I was 2 1/2, but also because it is Mary Blair!)

    Jason and I do not have a rental car and we would like to stop at MouseGears to pick up Aaron some souvenirs on the way. So we say we will just take the monorail and walk through Epcot. Then Jaime says she will come with us, and then everyone else says they will come too. So we are going on a mini adventure!

    [​IMG]

    We actually decide that we will wait until Tron shows up.
    [​IMG]

    Tron is a wild ride!
    [​IMG]

    Hard to take pics out of monorail windows that have been overlayed with Tron.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We stop in Mousegears and buy Aaron the 3 Disney bus set and we buy our 1st vinylmation (mostly for momma, but Aaron can open it)

    [​IMG]

    Then we run/walk to catch up with the rest of the group. We meet up with them in England.

    [​IMG]

    Ahhhh! The Boardwalk.
    [​IMG]

    We get a pager and head up to their room for a little bit before dinner.
    (We aren't exactly sure the pager will go off in the room)

    [​IMG]

    Jaime gives Jen and I these cute antenna toppers.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I love these Orchids by Cape May.

    [​IMG]

    Wow! I think someone is tired?
    [​IMG]

    YUUUUMMM!!!!
    [​IMG]

    Double YUUUMMM YUMMMM!!!
    [​IMG]

    Jaime and I have an ice cream eating contest with our hands behind our backs.

    [​IMG]

    It was a fun dinner and a great time! I love me some Beaches and Cream. And now the feeling of my vacation is about to change. The whole time I haven't really felt like I was at Walt Disney World...until now!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Jaime decides she wants to pose....
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And it was the pose above where Jaime gets recognized by Mary from the DIS. LOL! She even knew who Jason and I were. :cool2: cool by association.

    They pose for a picture and we are off to the MK!

    [​IMG]

    And Jason picked up a new wife.

    [​IMG]

    As did I.

    We got Henry the 3 bus set on our last trip and the ME one became his lovey! :rotfl: It's been lost recently, so he is using the Cruise Line bus (which previous was "Daddy's bus" - "Mommy's bus" is the one that takes to you the parks). We will have to get a new set when we go down in Feb/March - he LOVES them so much! It's kinda cute.

    I'm glad you got the "I'm in Disney!" feeling now! Those pictures of Jaime posing are hilarious.

    That is cute! I thought those buses are awesome and can't beat the price! Has the ME bus reappeared?

    I know it took a long time this trip! We almost already have to do our online check in for our flight home in 24 hours from this point in our trip!

    LOL! Jaime posing is hilarious. Once she starts I can't stop taking pictures. LOL. And the best part was while she was posing behind the plant was when she got recognized by a complete stranger to us.:rotfl:

    I am about to be reunited with all of these great people on my May Trip! I am lucky enough to go to Disney 3 times this year. We leave on Friday Dec 3rd and we will get back Dec 19th. I hope to have this trip report wrapped up by the new year and then I will be working on October's and December's until it is time to start planning Septembers! That is right, we booked AK Value for Sept 28th-Oct 5th. Our 5 year wedding anniversary is Sept 29th and MK's 40th is Oct 1st! We are hoping to get back to Vicky and Al's and this time we will stay away from the sweetbread! We are also using a week at Sheraton Vistana's that we got an amazing deal on either before our after our week at AK.

    Yep! The ME bus was just found YESTERDAY. Henry was thrilled!

    Enjoy your trip! I sooooo wish I was there too. We were supposed to be. :sad1: Perhaps PCC 3.0! (are you guys going?)

    I'll be watching Facebook! And looking forward to more crazy pictures! :laughing:

    Glad the ME bus was found!! We won't be on PCC 3.0, but we will be going to the world in Sept-October so we can be there for our 5th wedding anniversary and MK's 40th and I might run my 1st 5k. We will see!

    Sooooooooooooo many DISers are going during that same time. I would love to go then too!! I really want to do that same 5k...I'm not ruling it all out, but it's not likely. :sad2: I could use the "5th Anniversary" idea though...:scratchin

    Wow! I know bad trip reporter, have a lot to catch up with. But I am determined to do it! We made our ADR's last night for our Sept trip and I still have to finish this trip report from last May, our October trip report and write about our 16 day trip in December!!

    Well where we were, we were heading back to the MK for our last night.

    We headed for Carousel of Progress to digest our food. And inside CoP Jaime realizes that we have to check in for our flight on SW. LOL, now that really is a CoP.

    We hopped aboard the TTA and started cracking and passing out glow necklaces and bracelets.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We headed over to the hub, because Wishes would be starting soon!

    We are all glowing at this point!
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Now it was time for EMH!

    Jungle Cruise is so different at night, especially when one half of your boat is glowing!

    [​IMG]

    Taking pictures on the carpets, it was my 1st time and I believe Kim's 1st time too.

    [​IMG]

    Off to BTR! It is a must wearing glow sticks on BTR and rolling your hands as high as you can, sitting backwards and putting your head back.

    [​IMG]

    After the ride we met up with Heidi, Pam, Nicole and Kristen.

    Time to get one last refreshing snack.
    [​IMG]

    And we all went over to Buzz!

    [​IMG]

    Some Space Mountain!

    [​IMG]

    We actually got to play the games in the cue, they were fun and made the time go by quickly.

    [​IMG]

    Time to conquer another ride that I have never done! The tea cups. We crammed 4 adults in one of those babies and our knees were killing us. I told everyone I do not want to spin! I hate spinning, but 10 seconds into the ride I couldn't resist and I had to spin it! Before I knew it we were the fastest teacup under the tent and I was having the time of my life with the best friends I never knew I had!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Time for my Pooh Bear!
    [​IMG]

    Snow White: My Prince and the Prince.

    [​IMG]

    The Carousel! By this time it was getting close to one. I actually saw Donald and Goofy riding on Dumbo with some of the crowd! That was cool, I never saw this before. Jaime said that right before closing they will sometimes ride the Carousel too, and sure enough we saw them do just that a few minutes after we got off the Carousel.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Around 12:57 we head into Mickey's Philharmagic a little loopy.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    A pretty empty Mainstreet and a pretty awesome day.

    We were to meet everyone at Starring Rolls early, after we grabbed TSMM fastpasses! Jason and I and Tracey were the first ones there, we decided to eat cause we were hungry! And I got one of those lovely beauties called the Butterfinger Cupcake. Oh my gosh are those ever good. I must have been really hungry, or I was mad that no one was there yet, because I forgot to take a picture of it. I ate the whole thing, by myself and then Jaime and the rest of the gang showed up. Jaime got a Peanut Butter cupcake and she couldn't finish it, DIBS! I got try that one too, just as good!

    [​IMG]

    Our fastpass time was up so we headed over to ride!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We went to the Art of Animation...and found...
    [​IMG]

    and found...
    [​IMG]

    (this was before I saw TS3...now I could just kill that bear!)

    Time for some ToT, this was the last time Jason had been on his favorite ride! At least that is what he says, I wonder if I will prove him wrong when I do our December Report.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Lunch was really good! This is by far my favorite CS in all of HS.

    [​IMG]

    We were exhausted but looking forward to our next trip with just Aaron and our first stay at DVC with our own points! It was bittersweet when we were leaving because an OKW bus was pulling up and that is where we are staying in October.

    [​IMG]

    Back at the airport...Snow White and Snow White...
    [​IMG]

    Ready to go home!
    [​IMG]

    Exhausted!

    [​IMG]

    The trip is over but there is still one little guy to see!

    I was so excited to see Aaron that I ran down the terminal and rushed to see him!! When I saw him for the first time Jason, Jaime and Jen were far, far behind, so there were no pictures. I cried and hugged my little guy for a long time. Turns out that while we were gone, Aaron had become adjusted and used to taking his Froggy everywhere. You will see Froggy's appearance in many pictures from our trip in October.

    Side Note: Jaime, Jen and I are taking a spur of the minute Road Trip to DC to see a good friend of ours who had surgery on her foot. We decided to do this on Friday and in just two short weeks we will be on the road to DC for a day!

    I just saw your trip report while I was exploring your site :) I noticed you said that you are from Illinois kind of by woodfeild. I was wondering where in illinois you were from because I happen to live about 30 minutes away from woodfield in the mount prospect/arlington heights area.

    First - I'm still on the first day from my trippie from October, so you at least finished this part! :goodvibes

    I'll be there as well. Coming in 1st-8th as my BFF's family (including my Goddaughter) will be at the Poly that week. I opted for AKV.

    I also thought about coming in and doing the 5k.

    Have so much fun!!!!
