I figure I will wait until Wednesday and if the status still reads as "processing" then I will give them a call. It is all a bit weird as we did not even get an e-mail confirmation that the order had been placed like we were supposed to.

I didn't know your Mum had MS, so pleased the humidity didn't affect her.

Sounds like a great meet and it's fantastic you finally met Rosie
She did have a bit of trouble with her MS this trip but not much, at least not that she let on.

Thank you! I love to take pictures and I really enjoy sharing them with everybody. I'm not even sharing all of them either as they won't fit! I would have to have posts that are nothing but pictures.

I'm hoping to go down one more time before my seasonal pass expires (Oct. 15), but work is causing problems. We are having to change work schedules but we don't know when or exactly what the new one will be (other than working 4 Sat. in a row). Can't make any plans until we know more.

I had a pretty good sleep that night, only woke up a few times to the melodic sound of Mom's snoring.

I had set the wake-up call for 7am, we were headed to Epcot that day. The big event of the day was the Mammoth May Meet in France at 3pm.

All dressed and bag packed for the day we headed down to the food court to purchase a mug and fill it up. Last trip I started every morning with a cup of apple juice, sadly they had gotten rid of the apple juice and the frozen coke machine so I had to settle for lemonade. On the way to the car we ran into Rosie who was on her way to the bus stop. She was also headed to Epcot so we offered her a ride.

We got to Epcot pretty quickly and we got a really good parking spot. We were pretty much as close to the entrance as you could get without being in handicapped parking.

We even were lucky enough to get a spot in line up close to the turnstyle. We chatted with the family that was in line ahead of us. Turned out they were from Canada too, Winnipeg to be exact. I gave them some touring advise as they were not sure where they were going but they knew that they wanted to go to Soarin. I advised them that they should go there first and gave them directions which was not hard to do, I just told them to follow the mob. They laughed and said that they should just follow me around the park all day as it seemed like I knew what I was doing. They also complimented me on my Tink necklace, the first of many compliments, I seemed to get a lot of attention over that necklace.

The turnstyles opened and we made our way into the park. We were pretty close to the rope, only a few people back. Mom and Rosie chatted while I snapped pictures.





















As soon as the rope dropped the three of us headed over to Soarin with the rest of the crowd. We got on the ride pretty quickly. In fact we got to skip ahead of the line a bit as they were calling out for a party of three.

The ride was fun as always, and it was fun getting to ride it with Rosie, a fellow Diser and Focker.

After Soarin we parted ways with Rosie, we were planning on heading over to Test Track. As we passed the Character Spot we changed our minds though. We decided that we would save Test Track for our next Epcot day and stick with exploring one side of Future World for that day. The line for the characters was rather short so we said "Why not!"

I prefer the photopass pictures that got taken here but since the cd has not arrived yet I will have to settle for posting the pictures from our camera.



For some reason Mom doesn't like this picture, I think it is cute so I am posting it anyways!





I had to laugh at this picture when I looked at it on the camera screen as it looked like Pluto was licking my cleavage.











Dancing with Goofy was a riot, he even gave me a little twirl. What a charmer!





The character interaction that morning was a lot of fun and I am glad that we stopped to get those pictures.

Awesome, awesome pictures, Lessa!!! You and Mom look like you are having a wonderful time and the trip has barely started.

I have to ask you a question...are your feet ok at the end of a WDW day with just flipflops? I am a flipflop girl BUT still wear sneakers to WDW/DL every time we go.

Usually my feet are fine if they are the more cushy kind of flip flops. The flip flops I wore that day, well they were a HUGE mistake. I basically live in flip flops but I should have known better than to have worn that particular pair. I'll get into that more a bit later in the TR.

We had pretty good character interaction. It can sometimes be hit and miss as adults I have found. Overall though I have had very favourable interactions. I found that adults get overlooked the most at character meals.

Aw, nice! I'm glad you got to ride with Rosie!

I am LOVING your hair. It's very flattering to your pretty face.

Yep, we got to hang with Rosie quite a bit those first two days.

Thanks on the hair, I am slowly getting used to it. I don't hate it as much as I did that first day, what a shock it was!

I just checked the photopass site again and the cd has finally shipped! I should hopefully have the cd by early next week since we don't have mail on Saturday up here. Well except when a new Harry Potter book gets released then they make an exception.

We were definitely having a good time, but then how can you not have a good time while at WDW!
