I am following you over from Kathy's PTR.

I also followed you on your last food review and I really enjoyed it so I am looking forward to reading more on this one!

I wonder how many walk ups I can count....

Yes!! We are going to get a walk up on this trip! We showered and checked out of the hotel and drove right over to the AKL.

The tree at AKL is beautiful, and I was drooling looking at your breakfast pictures.

After a wonderful filling meal, with amazing coffee by the way, we hopped in the car to drive to DTD...believe it or not the parking lot was filling up! Come on Todd we have some shopping to do!
LOVE shopping.

Goofy's Candy Shop









I'll take one of each please.

No trip is complete without a pretzel! This one is a sour cream and onion...he loved it!


Of course.

So glad we got to see the decorations here.

At this time Kathy text me to tell me to get on over to the CSR so we could surprise Mark and let me tell you he was bowled over!

My phone was going to die after all the texting we were doing from the moment we landed.

Here is the tree at the CSR


It is a beautiful tree.

For those of you who aren't following my PTR or my TR which hasn't started yet, here's the video of my husband seeing Nicki...not only did he not know about the trip until the night we packed, he did not know Nicki and Todd were coming until they showed up:



Des had the cheeseburger and I am guessing she liked it because she was very quiet during that meal

Yes, we was quiet during the meal...but then we didn't really let her get in a word either.

Todd and Mark both had the open faced pot roast sandwich and they said it was very tasty, a bit too much potato but overall a winner

Fantastic meal at Beaches and Cream, would not hesitate to go back!
We are still talking about how much we enjoyed that meal...delicious. A great way to start the trip.

We've had some wonderful and memorable trips, but this one was definitely the tops for us.


So happy you are in for the trip of a lifetime! 6 months of keeping it a secret was a killer!
It sure was.

Hey, Susan. The TR will be started next week. I'm hoping to order the Photopass CD and am having it sent overnight mail and then I can start.

And all of this food is just amazing! I've added several to our must do list for our next trip.

YAY you made it! The 6 of us had too much fun and we laughed the entire time! I think Kathy is waiting for the Photopass CD before she starts her reviews.

After dinner the plan was to tour the resorts and then go back our own resort to rest because we were getting up early the next day. Well we did tour the Beach Club since we were right there but Des needed to pick up her AP at Epcot and we talked Andy into spending $10 more to get an extra night on his tickets and we decided to go to Epcot for the night!

First stop was France, Kathy had to get her Grand Marnier Slushie, and I know she loved it!







Of course the guys had beer in Germany but I dont know what kind they had...all I know is they loved it!



I tried a few things, nothing that I cared for because they were wicked sweet! The one thing I loved was the shot of apple stuff...that was so good and had a nice kick to it









My first drink was the Winters Dream Williams Punch. This was so sicky sweet that one sip was all I could muster...and everyone that tried it agreed BLECH! It was served warm with whipped cream and nutmeg on top



My second drink was Schonauer Apfel. This was served warm too, it was a salted caramel cream drink with whipped cream and caramel on top and you are supposed to pour the apple shot into it. I tried the drink first and it was also sicky sweet. Then I tried the shot and that was ice cold and wonderful. Then I added the two together and it was just ick. Wish I just drank the shot



As we were sipping and walking I smelled brats...I just had to have one! I ate the brat, Todd ate the bun and sauerkraut....it was fantastic! I love these and wish we stayed longer so I could get another one



Kathy and Todd had popcorn and they munched too fast and I forgot to take a picture but you all know what popcorn looks like

On the way out of Epcot we toured the BWI lobby but first we had to take a peek in the bakery...except it was packed and I couldnt get any pictures

I will let Kathy post the resort pictures in her TR and keep this one to dining only...well mostly dining only!

We said our goodbyes and off to bed we all went...except Des and Andy who partied the night away!

That drink you had was disgustingly sweet.

I'm so glad you could talk Andy into spending the $10.00 to buy the extra day...it was so great to have an extra night in Epcot. I can't believe after the early hour we were up that they stayed for Illuminations.

The popcorn was super yummy as always...no one makes popcorn like Disney.

Friday morning the plan was to eat at Sunshine Seasons but Todd and I were up super early for some bizarre reason and we were hungry...no surprise there!

It was a humid morning and it was 7am, boats do not run that early so we strolled to the Beach Club to get breakfast at the Marketplace.

Are these not the cutest thing? I am not a vinylmation fan but these ornaments were adorable!





Cupcake in a mug anyone?



My mission on this trip was to try as many cupcakes as I could...so of course I had to get this one! Its gingerbread with a peppermint frosting. It wasnt the greatest, I think it wasnt cold from being in the fridge it would have been better. The cake was dry and the frosting hard and sweet.





I asked for a plate of bacon and eggs and they told me I could get a side too so I picked the berry yogurt with berries on top. The eggs were great, the bacon was awesome and Todd loved the yogurt. The cashier charged us as a kids meal and told me to get a water, milk or juice too...that was nice



Todd had the breakfast sandwich on a bagel instead of bread. There was cheese (you can choose american or provolone) scrambled eggs and bacon. He really enjoyed this, didnt eat the potatoes though.



After breakfast we went to Epcot and they opened earlier than 9am for some reason, we didnt complain at all though Met up with Kathy and the gang at Test Track (not a fan of the new version) and then went to Sunshine Seasons for breakfast part 2!

Kathy and Mark shared OJ and a cinnamon bun and Mark had yogurt.



While not a cupcake, I wanted it anyways, Todd and I shared the apple caramel crunch cake. This was nothing to get excited about. It was soft and had nice apples in the middle but after 2 bites I was done with it. I think I liked the thought of it because I have not had apples in 8 months!





Now it was time to get down to business and do some rides before lunch!

As many cupcakes as you can eat..this is a goal I LOVE
