    Thanks! I thought that was a pretty creative title for so early in the morning. :rotfl:

    We found a total of 3 play areas. I have one more to post pictures of.

    Hey Jennifer! Long time no see lady! :goodvibes You read part of my PTR, before I took a hiatus from the Dis. ;)

    Yes, I'm still bummed about it. :( I so wanted to see those hotties. :rolleyes1

    I got two each of the Mickey, Minnie, Stitch, and Nemo plates last week. I keep looking at the tray, but I've put it back every time. For five bucks, why can't I just walk to the counter with it? I think it is because we already have some tropical themed items from last year's stuff. I'll be sorry if I don't get it, though, because I'll need to take a tray of something to school and I'll be wishing I had something Disney to take it on. I'm going to keep looking at your picture until I just go back over there and get it probably!

    Great installment! I am going to have to research where the Kidcot stations are so we can take Hannah and Christian. I loved the pictures, you have me intrigued by your cliffhanger.

    So very sorry you missed the lads in kilts... something to add to the "must-do" list for next time!

    Sweet picture of Pooh! pooh: Must be all the hunny...

    Great bit of luck running into the characters like that!

    Hmmm. Kim Possible impossible?? Don't like the sound of that!!

    Great to have you back!

    Yes, because it's very hard to come up with excuses to go back to WDW! ;)

    Definitely! At least the KidCot stations give the kids something to look for at each country and keep them moving. ;)

    :rotfl: Yeah, the photopass lady doesn't look too excited there, does she?

    Hey stranger! :goodvibes Those bathrooms were so cool!!

    I love Tigger! :goodvibes

    We had never really ventured into the stores around there and wouldn't have if it wasn't for the KidCot station so it was very cool running into them. :thumbsup2

    Glad you enjoyed Le Cellier, and that you at least got to see Pooh and friends :goodvibes Your photos from England are wonderful, I think it must have been so pretty at Epcot with the flowers and special landscaping for the garden show! :goodvibes

    What a bummer about missing Off Kilter when you thought you'd planned it perfectly! We missed most of that side of WS entirely so it's cool to see your pics.

    Pooh was cute! We didn't see any characters in WS - but that's ok, since dd was being scared of them, anyhow.

    And uh-oh on the impossible Kim Possible...

    Thanks - it was beautiful. :goodvibes

    Sorry - I was pretty sad myself. :(

    I learned something from this trip - check the schedule as soon as you arrive at the park. :thumbsup2 It probably wouldn't have made a difference though.

    Thanks Jennifer :goodvibes

    Thanks! :)

    Thanks Diane :flower3:

    I don't have a lot of pictures left from Epcot. I think we were so hot and tired that I was just trying to keep the gang moving along.

    First, a couple of pictures from Morocco:

    We made our way over to Japan so the boys could buy their Pokemon stuff.

    These are so pretty:

    So after Japan, we decided to find a Kim Possible kiosk. I still wasn't completely sure how all of it worked. The CM told us to print out a ticket with our return time. What I didn't realize is that the ticket would also tell us where to check in. And the one we received had has going all the way back over to Internation Gateway - the opposite way we were headed. :sad2:

    I knew there was no way we could make it back over there. We still wanted to get to Mexico and Norway and the boys were fading fast. The CM did say eventually that if we couldn't make it over there, we could return back to her and she would give us our stuff. I realized we should have gotten our FP before we even entered the WS. But, even if we had, I don't like the way it works. The WS is a huge area. Who wants to be backtracking all over the place? So, after a discussion with the family, we sadly decided to skip Kim Possible.

    To squelch the boys disappointment, we decided to find the pirate play area.

    We made our way over to Norway and got in line for Maelstrom. I don't remember how long the wait was, but the line moved quickly and it was cool inside. We thought it was fun - definitely a must do at least once.

    Then it was off to Mexico to finish our world tour. I was sure I had taken pictures in Mexico, but I can't seem to find them. We had never been inside before and was amazed! San Angel Inn is so beautiful! We enjoyed the fiesta ride.

    I am proud to report that the boys did get their masks completed. Our final mission of the day was to do Ellen's Universe of Energy - another first for us. We loved it! I can't imagine sitting through it many times, but for the first time we were very impressed.

    When we came out we realized it had poured during our trip back to the dinosaurs. Still super humid. So, it was back to POR we went.

    We had quite the treat waiting for us back in our room:

    Those were my favorite from the trip - so cute!

    I bought this at the gift shop in Test Track:

    We ended up having dinner at the food court again and it was the make your own pasta for Chuck and I. We got our desserts to go. I decided I would head to DTD by myself this evening to exchange my shirt from Chuck and do a bit of shopping. I thought it would be nice to have some alone time.

    You know what though? I ended up feeling very lonely on the boat ride and during my time in DTD. It just felt very odd being without them.

    I went to the World of Disney and it was so crazy in there. I quickly exchanged my shirt and found the other items I wanted - postcards, Christmas ornament, and a magnet. I don't think I have any pictures of my purchases, but you'll see the shirt I got in the pictures from the next day.

    Back to POR I went to eat my dessert (the apple pie) and hit the hay.

    Great update! Sorry you missed Kim Possible. It is unclear how it all works:confused3 You made the right call though. If you picked up your Kimmunicator at International Gateway that would have sent you on a mission to either France or the UK. I love the pirate topiarys! So cute! :woohoo: for actually finishing the masks too! My kids did that a couple of trips ago and loved it.
