    :headache:Stupid chip.

    :confused3 I really have no clue what the Morocco guy was talking about half the time.

    I was glad the stain came out, I would have been really PO's if the skirt had been ruined.

    How funny that Belle spotted the stain, it could have been in a worse place though so you got off lightly :rotfl:

    You are right, it could have been worse, at least it was covered by my shirt most of the time.

    I know they are soo addictive already!!!!! This is a GREAT way to learn any little thing you may have overlooked, keep you going til your next trip and get some ideas!! I am officially in love with the site!! This is our second Dec. trip. The last one was in 06. We were there for 10 days. It was a week before Christmas until a couple of days after. What a HUGE difference in crowd volume from Christmas Eve on!! This time it's the beg. of Dec. We want the decorations and experience with less people! :woohoo:
    I will definitely keep reading! Can't wait for more! When I start my pre-trip, I'll let you know in case you want to check it out as well as my actual trip report when I'm back!!

    I have to say Rosie it was the most fun I had in a long time, the things us single people have to do for fun, just leave to me I know how to :laughing::laughing:work a dark rooms, and open well lit areas very well LOL:rotfl::rotfl::lmao::lmao: Like I said this day I gave Lessa a run for her money, I kept her well entertained. I am so surprised she wanted to be seen with me for the rest of the trip, and then she thought she would have dull and boring time without the "Brothers Grimm", boy did I prove her wrong.

    Mom and I were headed to England to see the World Showcase Players. These folks are hilarious! The show that they put on in England is King Arthur and the Holy Grail We saw most of it last year and it had us in stitches so we knew that we wanted to see if from the beginning this year.

    We found a nice spot on the curb right up front as they were setting up for the show. They do a little warm-up to get everybody excited for the show and to attract the people passing by so that they can build up an audience. One of the guys involved was telling jokes and he told this really awful one about why did the chicken cross the road. I don't even remember the exact joke but I do remember I was the only one who laughed. He said that I had a sick sense of humour and that he should get my number. Mom claims he was hitting on me, I say he was just being funny and it was all part of the show. Mom's favourite thing to do in WDW is to say that people are hitting on me. If a character is chatty with me, he is hitting on me, according to Mom.

    The show got started and it was hilarious as usual. If you haven't seen this show definitely take the time to see it, you will not regret it. Also in case you did not know they pick three audience members to be the actors in the show which always turns out hilarious results. They do not ask for volunteers though, they simply pluck the people out of the audience. In this show the roles are Galahad, a witch and of course King Arthur. It is always so funny to see how the people will act out their roles. The Galahad they chose was excellent! I did not take video or pictures as I had recorded the show last year so I simply wanted to sit back and enjoy. If you are interested there are links to the video in the Index of my TR from last year.

    After the show was over we went into the Toy Shop to see if they had any characters out for pictures and they had Pooh, Tigger and Eeyore. They had to go on a break but were coming right back so we got in line. Who should happen by at that moment? It was Rosie of course! She joined us in line and we all went in to see Pooh and friends together. This had to be my favourite character interaction of the whole trip. It was hilarious! We were dying of laughter which you can clearly see in the pictures.

    I went up to the characters first and gave them all hugs. When it was Eeyore's turn I told him that he was my favourite. Pooh didn't like that very much and stomped off. He soon forgave me though and came back for another hug. Tigger was also bouncing around being his playful self. Pooh was messing around with Rosie. It was good times had by all. Since we had such a fabulous time with these characters I am going to post all our photos with them as I think it really reflects how awesome they were and what a great time we had. Some of the pics are not so flattering of me but I will post them anyways, as I said before, I'm not vain and I will post a bad picture. ;)

    So first here are the pictures from my camera. I'm not sure who was taking the pictures, Mom or a CM but they turned out great.

    Now the photopass pictures

    Ugh, horrible picture, I was caught mid-laugh at a horrible moment, I look like a pig.

    For some strange reason the photopass photographer did not take a group shot with all three of us with the characters, good thing we had one on our camera.

    As we left the shop I saw Tigger peeking out the window waving goodbye, I wasn't fast enough with my camera to get a picture, it was very cute.

    It was around 2:30 I think so we decided to head over to France as the Mammoth May Meet was due to begin at 3pm. So we figured we would just go find a bench and relax for a little while.

    We saw the Characters In Flight balloon flying high over China.

    Rosie separated from us again at this point, I think she went for a smoke break.

    The Serveur Amusant show began again, since I had basically only taken video of it before and I had to delete that I went over to watch again so that I could get some pictures.

    I actually got chosen to be part of the show! They chose two audience members to be the guests in the restaurant and you get to sit down in the chair and the waiter brings by several wine bottles, you are meant to refuse all of them. Well as I was sitting there my eyes started to tear up, it was almost painful, I couldn't keep them open, I had to keep wiping at them. I just couldn't take it anymore! Since the show wasn't focused on my part anymore I tapped the shoulder of the woman standing next to me asked if she wouldn't mind taking over my spot as I had to get out of there. She agreed and I rushed off to try and wash my eyes out. I still don't know what happened to them, perhaps it was the sun, I'll never know. I felt much better after a few minutes and was able to catch the tail-end of the show.

    I rejoined Mom and we were approached by a photopass photographer who asked if we were with the group that was meeting there at 3pm. We told him we were, he wasn't too sure what was going on, he had simply been told by his supervisor to be there for 3pm. We explained to him about the big meet and that most of the people wouldn't arrive until 3, it was then 2:45 I think.

    We did take the opportunity to get a photopass picture taken while we were waiting!

    Sure they count Rosie, stains of any kind are en vougue this season.


    I never said it would be dull and boring, I just said "less exciting".:rolleyes:

    :lmao: Actually I have no idea where Alek and Erich got their personalities, they are quite unlike Mom and Dad and me.

    I never knew you could meet the Pooh characters in the UK Pavilion! It makes sense that they'd be there, I've just never seen them there before. Your pics with them are SO cute. You guys got great character interaction.

    So cool that you got chosen to be in the Serveur Amusant show. That stinks that you started having problems with your eyes, though. I've had something similar happen to me before. It was no fun. It's good that you got it taken care of quickly.

    I can't wait to read about this mammoth Dis meet!

    Yep you can also find Alice and the White Rabbit and Mary Poppins in the Toy Shop as well. Usually it is Pooh and friends though.

    I love the Pooh characters - that looks like so much fun! :goodvibes

    I wonder if you got some sunscreen in your eye - that's happened to me and the kids at some point or another, and it's AWFUL. :hug:

    Pooh and the others were so much fun, I laughed so hard visiting with them that my stomach knotted up.

    That is what I thought too but I hadn't put any sunscreen on my face that day, only my moisturizer that has SPF built into it and that was way back in the morning. :confused3


    Ya I am always getting stuff on my clothes. In Venice I sat in bird poop in Epcot I got a chocolate chip. I'll take the chocolate chip over the bird poop any day. ;)


    It was a big one and I have tons and tons of pictures, my own and photopass.
