    Rachael 33 - Obsessive planner, Disney phreak, just plain obsessive about everything, trip report writer.
    Nick 32 - Calm, mild mannered Disney phreak, leaves trip planning to Rachael. Hard working needs this vacation.

    Day 4 MGM

    We are so tired from the previous days we have to sleep in. We sleep till 10am.
    We wake up and the message light on the phone is blinking. The Peapod package has finally arrived. Yippiee.
    We really only like to drink a few types of drinks which we find hard to come by when away from home. Nick likes RED Gatorade and I only like Diet Cranberry Snapple. So we ordered enough of this for the entire stay plus 2 sports bottles of water for each day. This would have turned out great if the drinks had arrived the 1st day. Here we are on the 4th day when they finally show up. That's ok it's so hot we manage to drink them all.

    The weather is wonderful until our last day. It starts out in the 70's on the first day and gets warmer every day until it is in the high 80's on the second to the last day. This was a little too hot. More about that later.

    We ride TOT. No wait. we then head over and get a FP for RnR. It's time to head to the sci-fi driven for lunch which we have a PS for.
    This place is too, too fun. We both loved it. If you don't know what it is, it's made to look like a 50's drive-in and you sit in little cars to eat while old sci-fi movies play on the screen. It is a hamburger joint so we have hamburgers. We thought they were good. That whole place ROCKS!!! We suggest you try it.

    After lunch we head over to RnR and use our FP. We then get another FP for RnR and proceed to TOT where there is NO line so we ride twice. I told you we are really theme park commandos.

    We head to the great movie ride. Nick really like this ride. I really like it to and noticed a lot more detail than last time.

    We head over to ride Star Tours. After we go to the gift shop and Nick gets a really cool Martini shaker and 2 martini glasses that say the name of some cantina on Tatoonie (sp) we think this is cool because Nick Loves star wars. The kid who played Anakin Skywalker in the last Star Wars used to play in our condo with the kids that lived there before we bought it. Anakin Skywalker used to play in our house ;).

    Back to RnR to use the FP's.

    We stop to look at the picture we had taken on the way in and we decide to buy it.

    On the way out we see the Emperor from the ENG. He is in Llama form when we see him. We are waiting to get our picture with him, with of course the usual kids and parents cutting in front of us since we don't have kids. I'm standing there and I feel something in my hair and Nick is Laughing, I turn around and Rafiki is playing with my hair. I get a hug and a picture then we get our picture with the Emperor. Did you know he actually spits water. It's cute, I mean we all know llamas spit, right?

    We head back to the hotel as we have dinner PS at the restraunt at the top of the Contemporary.

    We have a great table against the window so we have a wonderful view of the fireworks. They turn down the lights inside and pipe in the firework music from the MK. The food is great it's sort of California nouvel cusine. You know what Julia Childs says "the nicer looking the presentation of the food , the more you know someone's hands have been all over it.
    I have some scallop dish and Nick has some Steak that is absolute heaven. We have a bottle of some very nice wine. They are supposed to have the best wine selection in WDW. WE think they do.

    We then head to DTD and Disney Quest.
    We have a great time there. We are riding the Virtual Jungle Cruise and I whap mysel really hard on the chin. Nick is laughing only I would hurt myself on a "Virtual" ride. I have a nice bruise on my chin the next day.

    We were going to go to the Advertures'club but we were just too tired so we head back to the room.

    Miles walked 6.8 Burn out, I told you it was comming.

    Rachael, Loving your reports.

    Glad to hear you finally got your Peapod package. I guess it could have been worst, you could have gotten it the day you were leaving.

    Sounds like another great day. Hope your chin is better. That's a heck of a way to get a souvenier! ;) My son is a big Star Wars fan, too. He loves the Star Tours ride.a
