    Wednesday morning arrived after a nice long sleep. I woke up and opened the curtains and it had stopped raining! In fact the sun was shining! :banana:

    I examined my arms and legs and the rash was gone! This was turning out to be a perfect morning. After careful thought evaluating the past couple days I figured out that it was in fact my sunscreen that was causing the rash. I was using the same sunscreen I had used last summer thinking it was safe as I had tested it out on my arm before we had left for the trip and no rash had developed. Well I guess the combination of the Florida sun, heat and sweat combined with the sunscreen is what set it off. All this time and it was the stupid sunscreen. :headache: Since I had not been wearing sunscreen the day before due to the rain the rash went away with the help of the Benadryl I had bought at the drug store. Well with that all figured out the sunscreen quickly got chucked into the garbage and I will not be buying Coppertone again.

    Mom had gone down to the food court to grab our breakfast of Mickey waffles and she came back with a new mug since I had pitched such a fit the day before about the lid on our first one going missing.

    So after chowing down on my Mickey waffle and a banana for nutrition we were off to the park!

    I had scheduled two full Epcot days this trip as I wanted to be sure that we saw as much of the Flower and Garden Festival as we could.

    When we arrived we got a nice close parking spot and we were some of the first people in line at our turnstyle. I went all the way to the side to find a really short line while all the suckers lined up in the few long lines in the middle. :confused3

    Since we were at the front of our line we were able to get right to the front of rope drop, we were literally right on the rope.

    Since we had done the rope drop run to Soarin the other day we decided to head over to Test Track. Another first for Mom! It was a walk-on, they didn't even make us watch the silly pre-boarding movie, just waved us on through. :woohoo:

    Now I do not find this ride all that thrilling but it is fun to pose for the ride camera which is exactly what I did. However when we got off the ride the ride photo display screens were down. No! I was so disappointed, this is the only ride where you can get your photo added to your photopass card. It was a funny picture too! I know this because while you are still on the ride your picture pops up for you to see.

    Disappointed we started to head out, first we had to take pictures with the car we intend on purchasing. Well not really, a convertible is not all that practical for where we live, we would only get to use it a few months out of the year.

    As I was about to get out of the car a CM came over and told me I couldn't park there. :rolleyes: Oh hilarious CM humour!

    [​IMG]

    The line was still really short so Mom suggested that we ride again.

    The ride photo screens were still down but this time there was a CM there who told us that if we went to the photo desk in the gift shop they would be able to put our picture on our card for us. :woohoo:

    This picture isn't all that amusing but hey I got Mom to pose for it as well.

    So pleased you found out what caused your rash and it was something simple!

    I always go to one end or the other at the turnstiles too, never can understand why people make those huge lines in the middle :confused:

    Love the TT photo, great poses :rotfl:

    Yes, it is so odd that it was the sunscreen all along as I have used that brand for years with no problem. Perhaps they changed something in it? :confused3

    Hmmm, Jo likes the Test Track photo, Quel Surprise! :rotfl:

    Yea for the rash being gone!! I'm not in love with TT either, but think I will ride again this time since the youngest is big enough now.

    Yep, and it was such an easy mystery to solve too. Too bad I didn't figure out what the problem was on the previous trip. :sad2:


    Yeah, Test Track is fun enough but it is no Everest or Rock N Roller Coaster. ;)

    What a fun update, Lessa! I'm glad you were able to deduce the source of your mystery rash and that it was a simple fix :thumbsup2 More GORGEOUS pictures of the F&GF - just beautiful. Love your new car :laughing: Is it just me or is the crash test dummy in the outside car having a drink out of a bottle? :rotfl: I'm really looking forward to seeing the rope drop show now, thanks to your great pics of it! :goodvibes

    Yep, it was turning out to be a pretty great morning!

    On Dinosaur it is towards the end of the ride. There will be a big Dinosaur that will loom over your ride car on your right.


    Test Track the camera is at the point where you are doing the "crash" test and your car is zooming towards the wall and it looks like you are going to hit it, so right before your car goes outside.



    :laughing: It does indeed look like he is having a drink. :sad2::lmao:

    We were in Epcot the same day, too!! How funny!! Great minds think alike! We had breakfast at Akershus at 8:00 a.m. so we didn't get to do rope drop. I like your TT pic--we had issues finding ours on the screen but at the desk they were able to add it to our card. Can't wait to hear more!!

    I wonder what was up with the ride photos that morning? I am glad that we were still able to get them by going to the desk. :thumbsup2
