No Way - there were four rolls of toilet paper in each of those stalls? Either the Disney CM's don't want to change toilet paper rolls as frequently or men use 2 -3 X as much TP as women. The later is my guess.

You'll have to thank John for those pictures because I can honestly say I have never seen pictures of the men's rooms before.

Isn't the castle show great? I absolutely love it. I also love that Hunter road the Barnstormer.

I had fallen a bit behind, but I'm back on track now! John is such a good DIS spouse to get you the potty pictures! I always cry during Wishes too...I think it may have a bit to do with the fact that we normally see it on our last night.

I'm not a fan of the new photobucket. I switched a while ago just to test it out....but switched back. Looks like now I won't have a choice.

Aww, last days make me so sad. Boo!

I'm going to tell you, though, I've gotten a lot better with my good-byes. On my first trip (at 29 years old), I sat at Downtown Disney on our last day and cried my little eyes out. No, really. At the tables by the water right near Ghiradelli.

After we moved to Georgia and started going yearly, I got a little better, but I always had to visit a park on our last day...even if that meant getting home really late and having to work the next day.

Now, we've moved it up to going a couple times a year and I can leave directly from the resort in the morning on the last day. I still have to visit the gift shop one more time...and maybe take a look at a few more things around the resort before we leave....and maybe, just maybe, my husband has to practically drag me to the car....

But it's definitely better.

It's not even 9:30 in the morning, but now I'm hungry for a hot dog!! I like that style of split rolls. However, I really liked the corn dog nuggets from Casey's. So yummy with the "cheese" sauce to dip them in. Drooling now...

I'm hopeful that there will be four rolls in each stall in the new Fantasyland bathrooms. I always seem to be the one who goes in a stall without tissue and realize it too late.

I have never seen the inside of a men's room before either until John took these pictures.

I love love love the castle show!

I was a little surprised that he suggested that he take the pictures. I didn't even have to coax him or anything.

I'm not a fan of the new photobucket either. I never did make the switch myself and made them force it upon me.

It's wonderful that you can go more often now! I would soooo love to live closer so that we could go more than once a year. It's an 800+ mile trip which ain't nothing to sneeze at.

You're just like me. I want to do seomthing [I]anything[/I one last time.

You know what? I thought about that very picture when I wrote that last installment. I believe it was in your POFQ report.

Oh gosh! Cheese sauce makes everything taste good!

Yeah, little brother wasn't thinking was he?

I was a little surprised when John suggested he go in and take pictures.

I am surprisee Hunter didn't leave with Jesse and Lacey, just to keep an eye on them. That what a lot of younger brothers do.
Honey, I've been dragging this trip report out for so long. I really want to get a pre-trip report started but I knew that there was no way I could keep up with two.

Hunter is like me and will stay in the parks until they get ready to kick us out. Kinda like you staying on the cruise ships until the last minute.

I am going to start with the Barnstormer, then do BTMRR and if that goes well, then I might, just might, try one more. Nah, I'll be proud of myself if I can just do those two!

I am also trying a water slide (at POFQ) this trip. I haven't done one of those since a very scary experience 20+ years ago. I was scared but didn't realize that what was happening to me wasn't supposed to happen until I was met at the bottom by two lifeguards and my family. I thought I came very close to flying over the side and apparently they all thought so too.

So, if Hunter can do Barnstormer, then I feel totally comfortable doing it.
I think it's called Barnstorme with the Great Goofini or something like that. Congratulations to you for the weight loss! Barnstormer is pretty tame so I think you should start off with it. Lots of kiddos like this one.

Oh my! What a scary water slide story! I can see why it's been 20+ years since you've gone down one.

Your wishes pics made me remember how awesome it is! We have missed it on our last two trips. Hopefully we'll see it this year!
We laughed so hard while I was stashing the bread in the ziploc bag. It was hilarious! Yep, Hunter did have one of those looks on his face.

Hope that you get to see Wishes next trip!

I almost when John asked if he needed to take the bathroom pictures. I guess he figured that there wouldn't be anybody in there at that time of the night.

The knife throwing circle thingie is in the line for Barnstormer. I'm pretty sure that it would be hard to see/get to if the line is really busy.

I'm guessing that the newer restrooms at Disney will start having 4 rolls. That way Disney doesn't need to send someone in to add new rolls quite so often. That'll save them a little money.
I never understood women who had to go and linger in the bathroom either. I'd much rather get my "stuff" done and leave too. I guess the whole urinal AND stalls make sense.

I know that most of my trip report readers are women but for those men out there, I have a question. Why is it considered okay for men to pee in front of each other out in the open like that? I’ve never understood that. It’s weird to me!
It's funny that's not really something most guys think about it's just go in do your business wash your hands and head out.[/QUOTE]

for the bathroom etiquette.

Hunter loves him some hot dogs and was glad to see Casey's still open.

My daddy had some just like that in 1970....He also had a wide tie to match!

I twas probably plaid too!


Very pretty! Love the castle reflection in the water.
Thank you!

This one includes the kiss goodnight. And if you listen closely as we start our walk down Main Street, you can hear a grown woman whining about not wanting to go home and begging to stay. Oh, wait, that whiner is me!

Thanks so much! You little whinnie, you!

I really lucked up on those pictures of the castle. They usually turn out crappy.
