Not to mention, that Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake from LTT has been calling my name.......




Yay for a 1 day! That's gonna be awesome!!!

That Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake has me wanting to go back to LTT. I was thinking I might take my friend there when we go in March. Each time she goes, I try to show her a new place to eat. Seeing that dessert is making me think it's time to go back in time for her newest Disney dining experience.

We have a couple low number days in our October trip - I am anxious to see that! Even on our late January trip I don't think we had any 1s or 2s!

That toffee cake sounds good - I wish I could just have that to go!

One more week for you!! Are you packing yet?

Rachel started her junior year too! Hard to believe they'll be seniors next year at this time!

Your boys are so handsome in their first day of school photos.
I know, just one more week!!!

I really don't like being super wet and walking around the park. Of course, if it's super hot I might change my mind!

Thanks Kelli, they sure are growing up fast

You must make time to see The Magic, The Memories and You show. It is just incredible! Baylor told us that he saw a picture of Marc and I in the show when we were there in June. IF he actually did, I missed it. LOL!!!
I know the start of school is so crazy for teachers! Hope you are starting to get settled in.

How exciting that you guys made the show! But, total bummer that you missed seeing it, at least Baylor caught it

I can't wait to see how excited Claire is about SAB too. I am not a big swimmer, but I know this will be a huge hit for her.

You've got some great plans lined up. Are you packed yet?
We are eating at lots of the same places! I think you'll like Via Napoli, even without the hot waiters

Grab a float and just go round and round in the lazy river at SAB, that's what I plan on doing!

We have two very low crowd days, this one and the next, I'm so excited for that!

LTT has some really good lunch options, I think it's a great place to take your friend! Are you going with Kay?

Isn't it exciting to see 1's & 2's on the crowd calendar?

Go up to the podium and ask if you can get the toffee cake to go, I bet they would let you!

I have not started packing yet. I have one very very small pile with a couple of books and some cheap disposable ponchos in it and that is all.....

Most of the kids in Jared's grade are really good kids. I know it gets hard for them though because they are starting to feel grown up, yet they are still in elementary school and have all those 'little kid' rules that still apply to them. They start to revolt about March if I remember right

That day MK is a 1.1 with an overall of 3, the next day both MK & AK are listed at 1.1 with an overall of 1! I can't wait to see what that looks like!

Welcome home! I hope you had a great trip even if it didn't unGrumpify your DH. Is that a TR link I see in your siggy? I promised Jared I would watch a movie with him, but I'll head over and check it out afterwards

Our last full day will be Saturday the 8th and we plan on spending it at Animal Kingdom. This is projected to be another very low crowd day, even lower than the day before if you can believe it!



I'm sure we will ride EE & the safari again, but I really think I want to head out to the Conservation Station first thing.



I've read that if the vets will be working on the animals that they will most likely do it in the morning, so I think it might be cool to run out there and check that out!

I also want to walk the trails to see my favorite, the gorillas



and also the tigers



If we didn't catch Festival of the Lion King on our previous visit that will be a must and Jared also wants to see Nemo, and we will if time permits.



What is tops on his list, however, is getting his grandma on Dinosaur!



Oh, and we must be honorary bugs too!



I'm on the fence about Kali, I'm not really a big fan but Jared likes it and wants to ride, so we'll just play that one by ear. I did buy a couple of cheap 88 cent ponchos that we can wear while we ride and then just throw away afterwards.

Lunch will be at Pizzafari



And at some point during the day a stop by the Dawa Bar will have to be made for a Lost on Safari



I'll also need an jalapeno cheese pretzel, it's my favorite snack in all of Walt Disney World - yum!



We have no real evening plans. Jared wants to check out the ESPN Club so I think we will eat dinner there and then just hang around the Boardwalk for awhile.





At some point that night we will have to pack to go home. The next morning we have a 9am breakfast ADR at Cape May Cafe



The UNmagical Express will pick us up around 10:45 and back to reality we will go

I love all your updates! I finally loaded all the photos off my camera... Can you believe it was all of last year?! Gasp! I have to organize them! So I might have to finally try to get my TR going... Never mind that I have so many other things I should be doing!! And yes, I think we ought to plan for next fall! We will have to look into that for sure. I am trying to get in a four night trip in Dec... When I go for training... We are already spending a full day in Orlando after the cruise, but probably just DTD... Maybe water park we'll see. Our flight home was pushed back several hours so this gives us a day... Which I'm happy for!

You leave in a few days!!! How fun!! I liked that button pattern, FYI... I like my wristlets, as you know! But I could see you with that button bag or the bow bag!

Sounds like a great last day (other than the fact that it IS your last day)! The ESPN Club is always fun and hanging around the Boardwalk is a great idea! Maybe you'll be able to catch some of the performers.

In December I'd shoot for DTD instead of a water park! But who knows, you might get a nice warm day and the water park would be good. And of course, you northern folks are used to the cold so it probably wouldn't be as bad for you

I know you like the wristlets, and I thought I would, but it has just never grown on me. I'm totally leaning towards the button bag....

I'm going to try and start posting some pics from our trip today, feel free to throw yours in too and offer a little commentary as well!

That's what I thought too, I bet Jared would get a kick out the Boardwalk performers!

I haven't been to the ESPN Club since 2000 and the kids have never gone!

Michelle, it would be neat to see the doctors at work in the Conservation Station. That's a fun place that sometimes gets overlooked I think.

Just because of you, I am going to get a jalapeno cheese pretzel on our October trip. Can you remind me where to find them?

We also have a Cape May Cafe reservation. I read very good things about it! Great plan!

Love your last day plans, Michelle. I really love Animal Kingdom and want to get all of that done when we are there next month too (especially the cocktail ). I'll have to Dinosaur myself as Mark won't ride it after his neck surgery.

We've never been to ESPN Club...I'll be interested in hearing what you thought of it.

Gotta love those disposable ponchos (Mark sells to dollar stores and we get the two pack for $1 every year for our trip).

I would think first thing is a great idea and seeing the vets would be really neat. We were a bit dissapointed when we went but it was miserably hot, not much vet action and the train took forever to get there, then there was a medical emergency and we got stuck out there for quite a while until the train started running again. On a low crowd day, early, I think it would be a vastly different experience!

The rest of the day and evenign look great, nice and low key with lots of flexibility. Cape May on the last morning is a great way to end your trip!
