    I read about that somewhere and I think i gasped out loud when I read it. It's funny that you don't think about the fact that water isn't gushing off fo it.

    I don't know your reception and wedding was amazing!

    I know this isn't nice to the stingrays, but man, I would love to see that!!!!

    I think it's because Olaf hangs out with humans, where Mickey doesn't necissarily. But you are right.

    It was a really neat experience! Possibly my favourite tour I've been on so far, but I'm becoming more and more into Epcot the older I get and the more we go back.

    Right!? I felt the same way! It's so smart, and you never even think about where all that water goes.

    Thanks! It really was just our style, so I definitely won't complain. But that Living Seas lounge is a pretty cool spot. Maybe someday I'll win the lottery and I'll just throw a party there for all my friends! :P

    Haha I kind of thought the same thing! I think it would be hilarious and really interesting. Dolphins are so smart.

    Oh, that's a good point! That probably has something to do with it.

    Yay for updates, I just found these! I still haven’t done the Frozen Sing Along, I have a FP for it in January and plan on doing it this time!

    Olaf is such a fun meet, ugh for the annoying people in front of you!

    Fantasmic is really a wonderful show, I hope to do it with my sister, she would love it!

    I’m glad you enjoyed the tour, this was a winner for us as well. So many fun facts about FW. We only had 3 people in our group to. Our tour guide took us on TT at the end which I think was a bonus, so that was nice!

    I love your henna tattoo, very nice.

    I also love SE so much, such a favorite and iconic Disney attraction!

    This happened to me a couple times and it’s so annoying. You think a bus is right around the corner, but then the time jumps 20 minutes

    I knew about the fake companies but I didn’t know the price changed that much. Wow!

    Now I am imagining little windshield wipers popping out on each triangle :p

    Also interesting. I like that Disney water smell too.

    I knew about the odd tile, but I didn’t realize it symbolized the artists signature

    So they really do get cleaned? I was always fearful there was some sweaty guy in the back wiping them with an old rag :rolleyes1

    I find stuff like this so interesting. I really need to do one of these tours someday.

    Stinks about the bus! But like you said, it's good when you leave yourself with extra time so you don't have to panic about being late.

    SOunds like a cool tour!

    I love the henna tattoo you got! So pretty!

    Following along for more updates! Your henna was beautiful! Do you remember how long it lasted? Also,
    the bromine fact is very interesting. That smell brings back so many memories. I really appreciate that you shared some facts from your tour, but didn't give everything away.

    The Undiscovered Tour sounds super cool! I may have to do that one day! And your henna was gorgeous!

    The tour sounds really interesting! I actually didn't know they offered that at Epcot. I told myself I wasn't going to read the update and spoil some of the mystery, but...I couldn't resist. :rotfl2: Fortunately, your update did a great job making me want to hear the information for myself. It sounded like a great follow-up tour to Keys to the Kingdom. Or a tour better geared to the Epcot fans.

    Your henna tattoo was beautiful.

    I never really thought about doing the Undiscovered tour, but the tidbits you shared make me think I'd really enjoy it a lot more than I thought!!

    I am pretty sure I'm going to book myself on the Backstage Magic tour in May. I hope I love it as much as I have the others I've taken.

    My favorite, too :)

    I did the Undiscovered tour a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. I think it is kind of the EPCOT version of Key to the Kingdom .

    Happy New Year!!!!

    Ugh I would have been so annoyed. I'm actually surprised to hear that they even share buses. I thought they were big enough to support their own buses :confused3

    So glad you went back for your phone :P

    Your tour sounds amazing. I think this is my favorite tidbit. Now I have to find a bromine candle :-)

    Who would have thought the dolphins and not the sharks are the bullies of the sea. Also is it wrong that I want to see a stingray spin?

    That is really cool looking. I would have thought it was a regular tattoo.

    Random aside this past weekend Casey out of nowhere said she wants to get Henna at Disney again but it can't be the black color because it is dangerous. Now its not unusual for Casey to say random things out of no where, but when we questioned why she thought this she said she saw it on Inside Edition. We of course cracked up not only at her comment, but the oddity of watching Inside Edition which I thought had gone off the air like 10 years ago. Apparently this is what my Dad thought she'd like when he watched few weeks ago :upsidedow

    HEELLLLLOOOOOOO HUUUMMMAAANNS!

    Just wanted to say hello, and to let you know that I haven't forgotten about you all! I have lost both myself, and all sense of time passing, while I've been completely immersed in my school term. During our second year of this program (where I am right now!) we have full class schedules, but we also take part in part-time clinical practicum opportunities. Usually they take place a few hours a week over the course of the whole term, but because of scheduling issues with the team at my site, we've had to condense our whole practicum into less than half the time, and we've been running off our feet! On a positive note though: I've learned that I actually really enjoy working with older adults in long-term care! Who knew!? I haven't had the chance to really read TRs or put together any updates in at least a month. :sad1: (My sincere apologies that I haven't been responding to comments or keeping up with your stories!) But beginning in less than a week I'll be on a week-long study break and I hope to get back here for a few hours here and there to make up for lost time.

    In the meantime, I'm sending love and pixie dust to all my Disfriends.
    :lovestrucpixiedust::lovestruc

    See ya real soon!

    I remember all of that all too well. Hang in there! You'll make it!

    I really loved it too. I learned a lot and felt like I was making such a positive difference in peoples' lives.

    And we'll be here. :hug:
