    Brenda, Canada would welcome you! Most people use a combo of metric and imperial, lots don't speak French, and you get used to the poutine! :lmao: ironically I've never been as far west as BC. If you ever find yourself on the east coast though, look me up!
    Yikes. Those storms look serious. I can't blame you for napping through them. You guys have great timing! That cupcake looks amazing, too bad it was just ok. :/

    Love that picture you took in Canada looking through the rock. Very cool! I want that.

    I feel the same way about O Canada. I always come out of there saying, "I MUST plan a trip to Canada". Of course, I never do because I am always planning another WDW trip. :rotfl2: But one of these summers I am going to Nova Scotia. I have wanted to visit there since I was a kid.

    Cute picture of you and Em on the monorail.

    Glad you got in a much needed nap! :goodvibes

    I can't blame you for going back to the resort every time it rained. Nobody enjoys touring the parks under umbrellas or dashing from building to building. And if you're at a nice resort why not make use of it? ::yes::


    Oh, wow, running the dishwasher for one glass...guess Mousekeeping wanted to make sure that dish was spotless.:rotfl:

    I love Canada! Living in Buffalo is a unique experience, because the next closest major city to us is in a foreign country! We're exactly 100 miles from Toronto.

    That is a very pretty cupcake, even if it wasn't delicious. I have a HORRIBLE sweet tooth and all that frosting makes me giddy!!

    Love that last picture of the two of you! No doubt there will still be lots of girl trips!! :goodvibes

    the Canadian pavilion is super pretty ... though I tend to think that about each of the showcases until I get to the next one and then think that is the prettiest :rotfl2:

    yeah, now way at this point could I switch to the metric system. I talk with my colleagues in Zurich quite often and they always ask how the weather is here and then we spend like 5 minutes trying to convert back and forth between Celsius and Fahrenheit

    I don't think anyone can question you leaving the park whenever the CM's start prepping for a storm - plus you got to rest up some before dinner - so definite win!

    A little trivia note to add... Eva Avila was also the winner of the fourth season of "Canadian Idol". ::yes::

    AND, I already consider you an honourary Canadian (though you'll have to start using your "u"'s more in certain words). Rest assured, not all Canadians are metric system enthuiasts (I tend to pick and choose), never had a poutine, and do not speak fluid French. So you're alll good!

    I'm well aware of the rain aversion that you So-Cal folks have. So no explanation needed. Sugar melts when it gets wet you know. :)

    Dishwasher run for ONE GLASS????? No wonder they keep raising ticket prices.

    Awww watching that little monorail clip makes me miss you guys. Honestly. AND "Por favor manténganse alejado de las puertas". :lovestruc

    I also love the film at Canada. It is one of my favorite hot afternoon activites. My favorite afternoon activity is going back to the room and taking a nap.

    Best wishes to Emily and her guy! I was married at 23 and while it was on the young side of most of my peers, there's something to be said for growing up together in your 20s. We tackled a lot of stuff as a team ( and still do, actually!). Glad to hear your trip adventures will go on too.

    Awww, congrats to Em & her fiance! And to you & Michael as well-- what an exciting time in your lives!!
    You know I've never seen any of the WS movies?? We spent lots of time in the countries, but never make it into the movies! I do love a good patriotic song, though, so you may have just sold me on O Canada!

    Hey there Brenda! All caught up on your report...YAY! Your new view from the resort was wonderful! Loved you and Em's princess tees. Breakfast at the Grand looked very nice....french toast is ALWAYS a winner in my book! We have tried to ride Ellen's Energy Adv one time in all of our trips and it broke the moment we loaded onto the cars. How funny that happened this time for you too. I guess this happens a lot maybe? I will miss fastpass so much, it makes me so sad. :( I am with you on the rain thing. Trust me after I spend so much time straightening and taming my out of control wavy hair water, rain, and humidity are my enemies lol. Loved your LeCellier review. DH and I had the chance to finally have lunch here on our recent trip and I was in love! That is funny that Em fell out of the chair...the poor dear. BTW congrats on Em getting engaged!! YAY!! Her ring is so beautiful too!

    As you know already I'm thrilled for the great news concerning Em and her new fiancé Jordan. :goodvibes :thumbsup2

    Such an exciting time in your lives, and I'm sure wedding planning will be much fun for you and Em to do together. :goodvibes

    As for Canada, never been. In Epcot yes, the real country no, and I've never seen the video, come close but still have yet to see it. :sad2: :rolleyes: It's always a timing thing, we seem to always hit it at the wrong time or find ourselves distracted and off finding something else to get in to, something yummy, like a pastry in France. :goodvibes Ooooor it involves a glass of something calling my name, wine, bellini, adult slushi of some kind, you know how it is on vaca. :laughing:

    The Joe video, OMGoodness!! :rotfl2: That is hilarious, I remember the Joe incident in your report, he was very serious about his job, you think he still works for Disney? :confused3

    Yay Em! Do we hear Mickey wedding bells?! I'm totally anxious to see if they chose to get married in WDW.

    Canada is a beautiful country! I went to Quebec City my sophomore year and had a blast. I actually saw the hotel the Hogwarts-esque building in the Canada pavilion is based off of. But that wasn't even the prettiest part of Canada I got the chance to see. So... shameless plug for Canada, totally acceptable. And I think Poutine is delicious!

    Rain wimps? Psh. A Florida rainstorm is something NOBODY wants to get caught in. I would probably head for the Land if I was in EPCOT, but you had already been there most of the day so it makes sense. Love the pictures you got of SE though! They actually look really cool.

    Sorry, your Monsters Inc. cupcake wasn't that great, but I would've bought it just for that Mike Wazowski ring. Totally worth it. ;)

    "That Joe monorail dude" lol I wouldn't be surprised if he was banished to the parking lot either. Sounds like the guy who would/should be from your story haha

    Can't wait to read more! :mickeyjum

    Such good timing you guys have with the rain! I don't blame you for ducking out. As for the water park, we actually went to Blizzard Beach once when it was raining. We figured we were gonna get wet anyway may as well go! Such a nice view of the sun setting over the parking lot! The clouds look so pretty!

    P.S. I have started a trip report for the coast to coast challenge!

    I fell behind! I'm so sorry. :sad: I'm catching up now.

    What a nice momma you are letting Em sleep in.

    ToT is always worth it! I would wait 30 minutes for that anytime.

    I too would feel overwhelmed and need to have a carrot cake cookie. They're just so awesome.

    The Colossal Man is the best part of Sci Fi. Every time it comes on, I just chuckle endlessly.

    Wow, you were having a lot of Marilyn moments that day! I'm gonna say it's because you're fabulous!

    I hate being late to reservations too! I'm glad you were only 5 minutes late.

    Freeze dried ice cream is hard to describe. When I was a kid, I was in love with it. The flavor is good, it just kind of melts away in your mouth, like meringue cookies.

    Again, congrats to Em on the engagement! That's such happy news. :goodvibes

    Such exciting news! My bff's daughter is getting married in January 2015 so we're well in the swing of wedding planning, so much fun! Please pass on my best wishes to the happy couple!

    I am Canadian and I weep every time I hear the song! I am very fortunate that I have been from one coast to the other (the perks of having a father in the military) and every province is gorgeous IMO! If you ever find yourself on the prairies give me a shout....we have a spare room!;)
