    That family you snuck a picture of is so great! I love it when families follow a theme at MNSSHP.

    I'm so sorry you missed out on the preview! That's such a bummer. :worried:

    Nice at your DD calling out the scantily clad ladies. So wise. :rotfl2:

    That family had it going on !! So cute !!

    I will see it eventually. The line was too long. We didn't want to waste our MNSSHP night in line for that. We will see it in January.

    DH and I were rolling !! She is hilarious sometimes !! You should have seen how big here eyes were. Like whoa !!

    Day 6- Part 1

    Since we had such a late night the previous night, we slept in - got up around 9:30 AM. I had planned to go over to Pepper Market to check out their buffet that was supposed to be a QS credit, but since it was already almost 10 AM and they stopped serving breakfast at 11 AM, I thought we would be too rushed. So we went down to Roaring Forks again for breakfast. And we all pretty much got the same thing. Hey, it worked for us. I guess I can be as much of a creature of habit as my DD. So you can see where she might get it from.

    DH and I both got the Croissant Breakfast Sandwich

    [​IMG]

    It was good as always.

    DD went with her favorite of Mickey Waffles

    [​IMG]

    And DS went with his current standby of pancakes

    [​IMG]

    We went back to the room and picked up a few things and then headed out to the car and over to Epcot !! This day was going to be our World Showcase day and I had actually planned to only spend a few leisurely hours there.

    DD and DS REALLY wanted to do Sum of All Thrills and when we got there

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The line was pretty long. DD really wanted to do it and we werent in any hurry, so they waited. It only took about 15-20 min., so not too bad.

    When they were done with that and we headed back outside, we discovered it was raining, so we hurried over to the other Innoventions building to do the

    Great Piggy Bank Adventure again

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After that, we checked out the video games

    [​IMG]

    And some of the other games/exhibits

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We looked outside and it was still raining, but radar indicated it wouldnt last much longer. So we made a dash for Mouse Gear.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We looked for a while

    [​IMG]

    DD spied a doll she wanted and I spied some pajamas that I was sure would make me feel better after my upcoming surgery.

    And we noticed it wasnt raining any more.

    Then we got moving towards World Showcase. But first, we had to stop and get our phone for the Phineous and Ferb game.

    The party looks like a lot of fun! How cool that they were previewing parts of New Fantasyland - too bad the line was that long though!

    Yay for Agent P!!! I kind of want to do that during our trip, but I know DF has ABSOLUTELY no interest! :rotfl:.

    I was kinda bummed that I didn't get to see the sneak peek. When does that opportunity ever present itself ?? But that line was too long on a good leg, let alone one that was in pretty bad shape, so standing and waiting wasn't an option. We will see it in January, though and it will be all finished then. Can't wait !!

    I think Agent P is just a recycled version of Kim Possible. Which the kids like, but I think it is just kinda 'meh.' It kept them distracted, though. With Food and Wine in full swing while you guys are there, I wouldn't waste the time, really. ONE mission doesn't take that long though if you really want to give it a try.

    You are an updating machine! I think you made a good decision to not wait it out at enchanted tales with belle. We made it into a soft opening last week, and it was cute and all, but the line moves SUPER slow. We waited at least 1/2 hour, and it was shorter than in the picture you posted. It would have been tough to stand on one leg that long! :scared:

    It looks like you guys were having a productive morning despite the rain! I enjoy the piggy bank adventure too!

    Keep in mind that I have had surgery and I am basically just laying up in bed all day with my leg up so the swelling doesn't get too bad. Because if the swelling gets bad, you will just want to shoot yourself. So, I am kinda bored.

    Yes, I am glad we didn't wait. We had a low crowd MNSSHP and still had some things we wanted to do, so waiting in that line wasn't a good use of our time OR my painkillers.

    We have always been so lucky with the rain. It rained some, but never an all day thing, so we just worked around it.

    Bummed about the soft opening... I might have passed as well.. seeing you will be there in Jan.

    The parade looks like tons of fun.

    I have never done the piggy bank thing.. What is it ? appropriate for an almost 6 yr old ??

    Hey, there is nothing wrong with being a creature of habit. I literally eat the same thing for breakfast almost every day, with a little bit of variation. Ain't no shame girl! :rotfl2:

    Mickey pajamas (or Disney pajamas in general) would make anyone feel better with impending surgery.

    It is probably a good thing we just missed the previews of Enchanted Tales w/ Belle when we were there last. I absolutely would have waited in that line, and had been listening to a lot of whining in the process! In your situation though, I'm not sure I would have waited either. As you say not a good use of time or pain meds when you'll be back in just a few months.

    I love Storybook Circus! So happy to see all those pictures! I was never ga-ga over the old Toon Town. It always felt kind of cheap and thrown together to me. They have done an amazing job with Storybook Circus though. I can't wait to check out the new store! I love that they have different costumes for the people working in there. So appropriate!

    So...will there be some F&W food porn coming??? I have to live vicariously through you since we won't be going this year.

    I soo agree... I was never crazy about toon town either. I remeber when it was first built and it was even worse. They had some cheesey show under the big top area ... before Mickey was there.

    I am definitely a creature of habit. Very schedule oriented. I like eating the same thing for breakfast because then I don't have to think much. I don't think well unless I have 3 cups of coffee on board.

    I do love my Mickey pajamas. They do make me feel better.

    I thought about how excited you would be if you were there. But the line was waayy too long and not moving. The kids were so not into it. It was all about the candy that night for them.

    I can't wait to see it all come together. I like Toon Town OK. DD liked Mickey and Minnie's house. But I am not missing it now that they have the new stuff there.

    We just missed F&W, so I am very sad to say that there will be no food porn from that.

    Well it will be amazing when it is all finished and then no one will remember or care what was there before.

    Day 6 – Part 2

    The kids chose a mission in Norway, so we went over there.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    They did their mission and rode the boat ride. Again, another ride that I could not easily get in and out of, so I waited and took some photos.

    [​IMG]

    After Norway, the kids set up a mission in China and they did that together while DH and I went to watch the China movie. Which I love. DH is possibly going there next year to help his company start up a plant, so he was really interested in seeing it again. He had just gotten back from Mexico a few days before our trip to WDW.

    We watched the movie and DH took photos of DD playing with the puppets.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After that we continued on through World Showcase.

    Italy

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We were starting to get hungry and everyone wanted something from a different place. So we decided to roll with that. DH wanted something from Germany.

    [​IMG]

    So he went to Sommerfest which is the QS place in Germany and got a bratwurst

    Bratwurst - served with sauerkraut and roll $6.69

    [​IMG]

    It came with a pretzel

    [​IMG]

    But instead of getting a soda, he sprang for a beer.

    [​IMG]

    He said this meal was very good and he really enjoyed it. Later on in the day, we were all regretting he had eaten it. Apparently, sauerkraut makes DH’s butt very happy and he was making us miserable later on in the room if you know what I mean. No more saurkraut for DH when we are in close quarters.
    He and the kids were in Germany picking this up while I was scootering over to Morocco to get myself some lunch.

    [​IMG]

    I really wanted to try the Shawarma platter that everyone had been raving about.

    Our plan was to meet in the America Pavilion where the kids were getting something to eat. I gotta tell you, I got some really strange looks when I was scootering back towards the America pavilion with a tray full of food, but I arrived in one piece with only minimal spillage of my soda.

    Here’s what I had.

    Shawarma Platters - served with side of Hummus, Tabouleh and a Tangierine

    Couscous Salad with fresh Moroccan bread
    Chicken & Lamb Combo $13.99
    Chicken $11.99
    Lamb $12.99

    I chose chicken

    [​IMG]

    It came with a drink and some baklava

    [​IMG]

    I really enjoyed this . The chicken had a lot of flavor and I really liked the fresh pita bread and the hummus. The couscous was just ok as was the tabouleh, but I really enjoyed the rest.

    The kids went with the old standby.

    [​IMG]

    Yep. Chicken nuggets. Again. DS discovered that instead of getting a soda and a dessert, you could combine them for a slushie. He was so proud of himself for getting such a great deal.

    Bellies full, we continued on with our exploration of the World Showcase.

    DH took this

    Darling picture of you and DD! Loved all of the updates - what?....nothing to do? Too much time on your hands!? Just kidding, I have had 4 knee surgeries, it sounds like fun laying around until that's all you have to do! Hope the healing is continues!

    Love the MNSSHP pics, one of my favorite memories is that party with our kids when they were younger. I could not get my DH in those green tights! But that Peter Pan family was awesome!:cheer2:

    This is my second ankle surgery. The first time I literally sank into depression it was so bad. But now that I know what to expect, it is easier to deal with this time. But every 15 minutes I take stock of what tools I have on hand that would remove this cast. So far the Dremel is in first place. Followed by the hack saw. I hate this thing with an absolute passion.

    Yeah, that guy was rocking that Peter Pan costume. He was a pretty nice looking guy. I loved their costumes !! They were pretty awesome.
