    Day 2 – Part 4

    They came back from the pool and DH watched the rest of the game. Our team won. Something like 58-10 or some such. And even though it was glaringly evident that we had won the game, DH had to watch until the very last seconds ticked off the clock. Sigh.

    It was about four o’clock at this time and the kids were wanting to do something. So we went to Downtown Disney.

    Some resort photos as we were on our way to the car.

    [​IMG]

    We found a decent parking spot and we entered at the T-Rex restaurant. DS took photos.

    We headed across the bridge to check out the Vinylmation store.

    [​IMG]

    But I didn’t see anything I had to have, to we went back towards the Market Place. At this time I notice my scooter is at half power. The paper work said the scooter was supposed to be good for 15 miles and at this point I was sure we hadn’t even gone two miles. So while DH and the kids checked out the
    Lego store, I called the scooter company.

    [​IMG]

    They said something must be wrong with the battery and that they would bring me a new one right away. And they DID !! They got there in 15 minutes and said that yes, that battery had gone bad. The new one they gave me worked sooooo much better and I was very happy with it. I was glad we had gotten that resolved before we had gone to a park because it would have really stunk to have gotten stuck with a dead battery in the park.

    DD and I hit World of Disney

    and she got a Rapunzel outfit for her American Girl Doll

    [​IMG]

    DS got a Lego set at the Lego store.
    [​IMG]

    Then we headed over to Once Upon a Toy

    [​IMG]

    I loved this Life spinner on the ceiling.

    [​IMG]

    DD got a Zero plush from the Nightmare Before Christmas movie

    That's great how quickly the scooter company resolved the battery issue! Hopefully you didn't have any problems with it after that!

    I never noticed the ceiling in Once Upon a Toy! How cute!

    Day 2 – Part 5

    After some shopping, we headed over to Wolfgang Puck Express to get some dinner.

    [​IMG]

    DD got some

    Macaroni and Cheese $7

    [​IMG]

    Which she didn’t really like. But I thought it tasted good. But …. Whatever.

    DS got the old standby

    [​IMG]

    Nothing new there. DH ate his “green things”

    DH and I got our old standby that we always get here

    Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf - mashed potatoes, port wine sauce and crispy onion rings $15

    [​IMG]

    We always split this because it is so much food.

    For dessert, DD got a brownie, DS got a cookie and DH and I split the cheesecake.

    [​IMG]

    This is pretty much a repeat of the last several meals we have gotten here. DD changed it up this time and got macaroni though. We really love the food here. And will definitely go back again and MAYBE try something new. But I always say, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” So we may just stick with what works well for us.

    After dinner, the kids wanted to check out Goofy’s Candy Company

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    DD got some cotton candy for a snack credit

    [​IMG]

    That was only half, she had already eaten some of it.

    DS got a slushy for a snack credit, but I didn’t get a photo.

    After that, we went to Basin.

    [​IMG]

    DD loves the bath bombs there and so do I. So we got some.

    [​IMG]

    This tube is $19.99 for as many as you can fit in. We were able to squeeze in seven.

    They also had a little tube where you could put these little bath marbles in for $6.99.

    [​IMG]

    And DD snuck this soap in there and I just looked at the package and that dang thing cost $7.

    [​IMG]

    She wanted it because it had paw prints on it. (Eyeroll).

    We took few more photos on our way out

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And then we headed back to the resort. For an ice bag

    [​IMG]

    DH took DD down to the pool again while DS got to work on his Lego set.
    I dipped into my emergency supply of vikes since my ankle was hugely swollen and hurting pretty bad. DH looked at it doubtfully and asked if I was going to make it through this trip. I said we would stay on top of icing it and practice some good pain management and I would get through it.

    We watched football and went to sleep.

    I was very pleased with the prompt and friendly service the scooter company provided.

    I never noticed it either and just had to get a photo !!

    They do have costumes for the American Girl dolls. Well, they are for the My Disney Girl doll which is WDW's version of the American Girl doll. They have Cinderella, Aurora, Jasmine, Minnie Mouse, Rapunzel and Tiana. They may have more, but those are the ones that come to mind. I have been trying to get DD to get one for her doll, because I just love them, but she wasn't interested until she saw the Rapunzel outfit.

    I am having a tough morning for sure. Getting my DIS fix is a good distraction.

    Hi, I just started reading your trip report, and I love it so far.

    I hope your surgery went well, and I hope you have a speedy recovery.

    We are trying to plan our first trip to Disney World for December 2013. My mom is going with us, and she will need a scooter due to knee problems, so I'm looking forward to seeing how the trip went for you on a scooter.

    Looking forward to the next update.

    Thanks.

    :welcome: I am so glad you are reading and I hope my TR will help you plan your trip. I really enjoyed the scooter. Even though the reason why I had to rent it has been very unpleasant, the scooter really added an element of fun to our trip. It really was a life saver. Feel free to ask any questions. I would love to help.

    Today has been my first day post-op and it has been a very rough day. I hope tomorrow will be better. Thanks for the well wishes !!!

    Love some WPE! My standby is the turkey cobb salad, but have really enjoyed the chicken strips too. I gave up beef, so I'll just have to drool over your pictures of the meatloaf. Man, I love meatloaf. <sigh> It just isn't the same with turkey.

    Your poor foot! So swollen!! I hope you're doing okay today. :hug:

    We just love that meatloaf. Sooo yummy.

    It swelled up huge every day. If I didn't ice it once or twice a day, then I was going to be in some pain and discomfort.

    I hope you have a great trip !! Looking forward to hearing about it when you get back.

    Gave up beef ??? Wha ???

    The chicken strips are very good.

    Today has been a very hard day. I haven't been able to get the pain under control at all. We will see what tomorrow brings ......

    Day 3 – Part 1

    We got up early – about 7:30 AM and headed down to Roaring Forks for breakfast.

    DH ordered a Bounty Platter

    Bounty Platter - with scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes, pancakes and a biscuit $8.29

    And this is what he got: scrambled eggs, hash browns and a piece of bacon. I thought I had gotten a photo, but I can’t find it now.

    Anyway, they were clearly confused about what a Bounty Platter was. I asked him if he wanted me to fly up there on my broomstick and handle it, but he said to not bother, that this was plenty and the kids wouldn’t eat all theirs, so he would finish their food up. If we had paid OOP for this, however, I would have gone up there and straightened that out. Just sayin’.

    DS ordered Pancakes

    Pancakes - served with bacon $5.19

    I think he might have gotten them to switch the bacon out for hash browns because this is what he ate.

    [​IMG]

    These were good pancakes and the hash browns were good, too. I like them crunchier and we added salt and pepper to them, but they were pretty good.

    DD got her some Mickey waffles.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    They made these while we waited, so they were very fresh and yummy. DD gobbled them right up.

    I had

    Bacon, Egg and Cheese Croissant Sandwich $5.99

    [​IMG]

    It came with hash browns and it was very good and filling. And I had it again a couple more times throughout the week. Very good breakfast.

    After that, we headed down to the dock.

    [​IMG]

    We were going to catch the boat to Magic Kingdom

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The sky looked ominous

    [​IMG]

    Now I am not usually afraid of rain. I had packed our ponchos. But I wasn’t sure how the scooter would hold up in the rain, so I checked my phone for radar

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Um yeah ….. not looking favorable. We discussed it with the kids and we all decided to head back inside and wait it out.

    Oh...the Mickey Waffles look delicious!! That is one of our favorites!

    Those clouds look like they they could soak you right through in about two seconds! But the WL is a great place to hang out when you have to!

    BTW - love your DH's shirt! National Champs - Go Cocks!!

    That stinks that your Bounty Platter was under-carbohydrated! :laughing: The rest of the food looks really good though!

    I didn't realize WL had a boat to the Contemporary too - I only thought they went to the MK!

    They cooked the waffles while we waited, too. So they were very fresh and yummy.

    It rained pretty hard for several hours, so turning back was the right plan.

    Yes !! Goooo Gamecocks !! Watching that football game against Missouri right now. Looking good for another SC win !!

    I would have gone up and gotten what I asked for myself, but DH didn't want to make a big deal over it and we all had plenty to eat.

    We never got the chance to take the boat to the Contemporary, but that is good info for sure. You learn something new on the DIS every day, huh ??

    The rain lasted a few hours, and it rained pretty hard, so we were happy with our decision to wait.

    Day 3 – Part 2

    A lady with a baby gave us her arcade card that she said she wouldn’t use, so the we headed to the arcade so the kids could play games.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Of course the points on that card didn’t last long and we purchased $5 more which was 275 points. Games were about 40 points a game.

    [​IMG]

    After that, we headed back to the room.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We chilled for several hours and about 12:30 PM, it looked like the rain was clearing out, so we gathered everyone up and headed out to the bus. It was still sprinkling, so we didn’t want to wait down at the dock. Well we should have taken the boat because the MK bus took FOREVER. At least 35 minutes. Everyone was peeved by it. But finally one came and they got us loaded and we headed over to Magic Kingdom

    [​IMG]

    By this time, the rain had stopped. So we were good to go.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We had planned to eat at Columbia Harbor House for lunch, but as we got close to the castle, DD said she smelled hot dogs. I asked her if that is what she wanted to eat and she said yes. Everyone else was agreeable, so we ate at Casey's for lunch. We grabbed a seat outside since the rain had cooled things off considerably and the temps were perfect.

    [​IMG]

    We had an excellent view

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    DD, DS and I just got a plain hot dog and added some ketchup

    [​IMG]

    DH loaded his up at the condiment bar.

    [​IMG]

    We all got fries. These were very good hot dogs and here was DD’s assessment

    [​IMG]

    Thumbs up.

    The piano player was out and we enjoyed listening to him while we ate

    [​IMG]

    DH and I got Cracker Jacks for dessert.

    [​IMG]

    The kids got a chocolate brownie that is in one of the photos above. We were too full for dessert and I put everything in my bag for later.
