    Sorry I've been MIA, but I was in Disney and just got back the other day! Sounds like a fun morning in Epcot! I def need to try Lotus Blossom Cafe! I normally love MS, but I got stuck on it for 15 minutes before they started, but after they close the doors and lock ya in there! Your Minnie ears are so cute! I got the regular mickey ears, but not I think I'm regretting my decision after seeing your pics. Oh well! Bummer about the long commute back to your resort.

    Thanks! I looooooooove my minnie ears, I also brought silver ones just like it, but I never did wear them during the trip

    Whoa, I hope you had a great trip! I'll go check out your TR :-)
    That sounds like a bummer place to get stuck for fifteen minutes, I've never really been stuck on a ride that long before
    Thank you, I am in love with those Minnie ears :-)

    Looks like you guys picked some good food options. I've never been to the China pavilion for a meal and I love the food from the Mexican pavilion so I think I might have to try the Lotus Blossom Cafe fried rice. A shame you had to leave and run into the Brazilian tour groups. YUCK!

    Wow, you really did not have any luck with the monorail on this trip. The pictures your brother got are really nice though. Everything looks so much more photogenic from up there no matter how photogenic they may already be.

    Can't wait to read more! :mickeyjum

    LBC's fried rice is delicious, you should defiantly try it!
    I agree, pictures just turn out so much cooler when you're on the monorail :-)

    Once we made it back to our room, we quickly got our bathing suits on because house keeping had not yet come by and we wanted to be out of their way when they got there.

    We got seats in the shade
    [​IMG]
    And my parents went to fill up everyone's mugs!

    I went in the pool to cool down... but I'm VERY OCD about my hair, I hate getting it wet because it's so much work to dry and style it and I like to have it perfect. So I made sure not to go to deep
    [​IMG]

    The boys, however, jumped right in and swam all over the place
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    They also loved the slide (which I didn't go on the whole trip, I guess I'm not a fan of water slides lol)
    [​IMG]

    It was such a beautiful day out
    [​IMG]

    Johnny and Joey got a volleyball and played with my dad
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I decided to join in, to make even teams, plus it looked like fun

    I'm not too good when it comes to hitting it back over the net, but I can actually serve it pretty well!

    Throughout the time at the pool, we would check back at the room to see if housekeeping was done, but they didn't come/weren't done until 4:30.
    By then we were all pretty tired from being out in the sun all day and swimming, so we relaxed for a bit in the room.
    We decided against going to a park this night, like originally planned, because we were just pooped!

    We agreed on having dinner at the hotel, The Contempo Cafe! My new all time favorite resort quick service! It's sooooo good and I loved everything I ever ate there!
    It's really cool, you order your food on the touch screens, then pay for it, and they give you one of these things that buzz when your food is ready
    [​IMG]
    And then you go pick up your food, it's very neat

    Our food was ready pretty quickly
    I had the Multigrain Turkey BLT - cheddar, bacon, and vine-ripe tomatoes on multigrain bread with lime-cilantro aioli
    [​IMG]
    Minus the tomatoes :p
    It was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo yummy!

    Both the boys got Cheese Flatbreads
    [​IMG]

    My mom got Pasta with Chicken Basil Creme Sauce
    [​IMG]

    My dad got Pasta with Marinara Sauce
    [​IMG]

    Everything looked very yummy

    After dinner we looked around the gift shops
    [​IMG]

    These mugs were very interesting
    One side said something good, the other said something "bad"

    The boys wanted to play ping pong (something they ended up doing quite a lot)

    My parents came by and said they were going to go on a walk, so I joined them.
    Stopping at this first
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    We walked down to the pier
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    My parents went to sit down but I stayed on the pier so I could get this shot, but with the monorail in it
    [​IMG]

    So I stood there and waited and waited for the monorail to come by. And while I was standing there, a boy who looked like he was two or three years younger than me walked by me and said "sup" to me. At first I was confused if he was talking to me, because I couldn't tell if he was looking at me or not (because I can't see the best more than ten feet away from me without my glasses oops lol) so I just gave him a weird look and he keeps walking by and goes "okay then"
    Whoops, that was awkward! Sorry, random kid!

    We all went back to the room, showered, and relaxed because we would be waking up early again tomorrow!

    We were up early again this morning, we ate our usual breakfast in the room and were soon out the door!

    In my notes, I wrote down that there were "crazies on the bus" but I can't remember what happened lol

    Hollywood Studios!
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    We went straight for Rock N Rollercoaster! (While my dad went to get TSM FPs)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Joey was gonna go on it for the first time :O If you watched my trip video in the first post, it includes his reaction while waiting in line seeing RNRC take off for the first time.

    Of course Johnny and I rode together, and we got the verrrrrrrry last row!

    Joey ended up loving it, yay :-)
    [​IMG]

    Not sure why we were sitting down here, but we were
    [​IMG]


    After RNRC we walked by the Great Movie Ride, which was just about to open, so we stood outside with a few other families for a couple minutes.

    At this point, my camera died D: so I had to make sure Johnny, who was using my parent's camera, took a picture of everything I needed
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I did take this on my iTouch but then it died so...
    [​IMG]

    After a trip through the movies (which we got to be on the first ride of the day!) we decided we wanted to draw some characters!
    [​IMG]

    We didn't wait long... but we ended up having to use the drawing boards, we didn't sit at actual seats, but it was kind of better that way. We were first row, so I could see really well, and you could turn your paper
    But the best part was, we got to draw Flynn Rider!

    It was the best class we've ever done, I'd say

    On our way out

    Where to next?
