I've heard of people pinning dollar bills to a bride's veil at a reception - maybe the condom pinning is a new tradition!

Frat Party at Epcot!

I'm baaaaaack!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!! Now it's on to shopping, and parties, and shopping, and more parties and finally CHRISTMAS!!!!

But back to the TR at hand......

I left off getting ready to head over to Epcot for dinner during F&W. I regretted this decision the minute we got on the launch from the Mahi Mahi to Epcot.

We sat down and who should we see boarding and making their way right toward us?

A bachelorette party. Or as I like to call them, the McNastys.

Now don't get me wrong.... I'm no prude and I think a bachelorette party can be tons of fun..... in the right venue.

Disney World is definitely the WRONG venue!

The McNastys arrived with plastic cups full of Boones Farm or Mad Dog, not sure which. But judging by the McNasty's, it definitely wasn't Rothschild, if you know what I mean....

Ally and I were tucked into our bench seat by the window, and the McNasty's decided to sit on our seat, the seat in front, and then the two seats across the aisle.

And they talked. Openly. Crudely. Very descriptive.

They described their own bachelorette parties, and their husbands' bachelor parties.

All to the wonderment of children all around them.

At one point I gave "the look." You all know the look I mean. And I gave it good. But the MD 20/20 must have kicked in cause they didn't care.

The bride was already three sheets to the wind, and the wind was a flappin that veil. That was beautifully adorned with condoms.

And did I mention the lovely blushing bride was with child? Yeah, my guess is about 5 months along..... Nice. Classy.

I waited. For the questions. From an 8 year old. The questions that never came. Luckily.

Luckily for the McNastys or I might have had to open a can of McSparkly Whoop A**!

I actually had my speech ready. I was going to tap the bride, or one of her McNasty girls on the shoulder and ask them to please explain the adornments to my daughter. Very sweetly. Sugary. Sickeningly.

But the opportunity never arose.

As we were getting off the boat, I whipped out my hand sanitizer, and the young couple sitting behind us tapped me on the shoulder and asked me how I kept my mouth shut. We had a good laugh over the McNastys at that point, and made our way to the WS entrance.

The minute we walked through, I felt like Alice falling down the rabbit hole. And even as I looked left toward the UK, looking for my sister from another mister Alice, I knew that even she was too afraid to come out for the night.

It was a zoo. A mad house. A nightmare!!!! People EVERYWHERE!!!!

And I'm spoiled. Because we are lucky enough to go to Disney during slow periods specifically to avoid these crowds.

But hey, I'm in Disney, right? Better than being in work on a good day, right? Eh, maybe.....

We turned left over the bridge and decided to check out some of the goodies being offered at the F&W kiosks.

And there was absolutely nothing that appealed to Ally. And I decided that I would only stand in line once. There were no less than about 10 people in line at each kiosk.

And I wanted to be able to get our food, and find a little out of the way spot to plot down and eat. Because as crowded as it was, I would not be able to eat on the go, for fear of losing Ally and not being able to hold her hand.

So we finally got in line for pretzels around Germany. Yes, pretzels. With all the wonderful and exotic food, we were in line for pretzels. Because Ally wanted pretzels and I didn't want to argue.

Besides, where there are pretzels in Germany, there is...... BEER!!!!! Ally moved off to the side where there was a large grassy field and she and the girls behind us started doing cartwheels and playing.

Until one of the little girls came running over screaming and holding her arm. The parents, obviously having more than one child, were quite experienced and immediately told her she was fine and within a minute she was moving her arm and back doing cartwheels. If that had been me I would have been calling for a medic and immediately planning my escape route from the park.

Anywho...... once I got to the front of the line, I was told they were out of pretzels!!!! Yes, Germany is out of pretzels!!!! So having nothing for the beer to wash down, I left empty handed.

We continued around WS, bumping all the frat boys along the way.

At least they appeared to be frat boys. I believe every 21-25 year old in the greater Orlando area decided to cut loose at Epcot this night. The language was horrible!

The beer was being consumed faster than the Germans could change the kegs! Half of it was being dribbled along the WS like Hansel and Gretel leaving their trail.

It stank. Like stale beer. All over. REally just not a pretty sight at all.

We stopped a couple of times to catch shows, and of course we just had to play Kim Possible! This is a must do for us each time we are in Epcot! And it helped to take my mind off all the antics around us.



Before long we were in Mexico. Knowing that Ally and I both love the Cantina de San Angel, we decided to stop and eat. Yes. During F&W, we sampled none of the food. Or drink.

But the way Cantina is set up, Ally was able to snag a table right by the water and I could watch her from the line. So we would be able to catch Illuminations from our spot and all is well, right?

Well, almost........

I was absolutely spent from all the pushing and shoving around WS. They changed the menu at Cantina and I really didn't like what I got. Ally was laying her head down on the table. It had been a long night.

So I asked her. "Do you want to stay and watch Illuminations or head back to the Mahi Mahi?"

She decided to go. Which was THE best decision made all weekend!

We fought our way back to the WS entrance, saw a boat at the dock, and raced to catch it just before they closed the gate. So we settled in to our seats on the back for a nice open air ride back to the Mahi when, right before we stopped at the BW, the bottom fell out of the sky.

Literally.

The rain was coming in sideways and we were soaked before we could even get inside.

Now this is where the Mahi Mahi ROCKS!!! It is the only resort that has a covered walkway all the way from the boat dock to the resort. Never knew just how important that might be, but trust me. It was very important.

So Ally decided that she was just about the smartest little girl around. Because if she had not decided to come back, we would have been stuck at Epcot in the monsoon. And it did not let up until well after closing time. It rained for HOURS like that.....

Whew! Barely escaped all that.

So I got Ally tucked in, and grabbed one of my Diet Cokes, that I would NOT be leaving behind the next day, and relaxed with my laptop for awhile before going to sleep myself.

Up next, Ally leads the parade at Crystal Palace!!!!

So that McSparkly Whoop A$$...is there a 20% discount when you buy it by the case???

Ugh...I didn't know the drunk bride was pregnant- that's HORRIBLE on top of all of the rest of it being HORRIBLE!!! So glad it went right over Ally's head. Those girls would not have been as lucky if I had been on that boat. I would have released some NJ Whoop A$$...it comes in a SUPERsize can!!

Makes you think she should of been using them rather than making them into headwear, but there we go!

Disney a place for boozie hen nights? I think not!!

I would of gone ballistic at them too, and I don't even have kids! I wonder how you can be so restrained!

I am glad you made it before the rain came down! What a way to end a day!

Great update!

McSparkly NJ Whoop A$$....that would be priceless. It is crazy that people are that insensitive. I don't get it. I will just make sure that we aren't at Epcot on a Sat night when we go next year.

Ally is a smart kid for leaving.

McSparkly NJ Whoop A$$- I believe it involves flipping a table...in a very classy way, of course...

I know you talked about this before on our thread, but it makes me mad all over again! How could those bridezilla-ettes think it would be remotely okay to conduct themselves like that at WDW? Or the Frat Boys for that matter? Good thing you dodged the rain!

I think I was so restrained because I was in shock. Seriously. I'm sure a few flies made their way into my mouth as my chin was on the floor through most of the boat ride.

It was a crazy night! Don't they know who I am? Didn't they see the aura around us as we approached the pretzel stand? We are the McSparklesons!!!!! But alas, must have been some new German students and they hadn't been schooled in the ways of all things sparkly....

I felt SOOOOO bad for everyone stuck in the parks that night! Well, except for the McNasty party..... and all the drunks at Epcot. But it was a HARD rain, and it lasted a long time so there was no escaping it! And because it was night, you couldn't see it rolling in.

I know, right??? I mean, sure, I like to partake in a beverage (or 4) while in World Showcase, too, but never to the point I'm all sloppy!!! It was weird to see packs of young adults, too....

Yikes!! I have something to say about those "ladies" but I can't say stuff like that here. I am so glad I have never experienced that craziness at F&W. I think I'll continue to go early on a weekday to get my fill.

Yes I will drink at 11am rather than be amongst bridezllas and frat boys.

You're there now!!
