We hopped on the boat to DTD and had dinner at WPE. It was yummy.
Like you, we are now laying on the bed(s) ready to call it a night.
Great start to our trip(s)!!
Awesome! Glad you had a nice day too. This weather is just incredible. Love It!

We have had a great day so far. And to clarify this time we got the Photopass Ride + option. We did Photopass Plus on our November trip though.

Greetings from Imagination! Its been a great day so far and just BEAUTIFUL weather. We made rope drop for HS as planned and were there until about 2pm. We are at EPCOT now for as long as our feet can hold us. FP return for Test Track was 7:45pm so we are waiting for that. However it conflicts with our 7:15pm Rose& Crown ADR so looking into changing it. We will see.

OK so after my last post things got ugly. That happens with tired kids. DH and I took a vote and decided it was best to take a rest at our resort for a while with a plan to return later. What happened? Ill update very soon!

Glad we aren't the only ones! It's supposed to be 78 I think for the next two days...which originally I think had a high of 74 or maybe less when I packed for the trip! Of course! We ran to Walmart and bought one pair of shorts for each child...but none for ourselves. I think DH will be roasting tomorrow but we'll see.

Ok another LIVE update from me. Don't you feel special?

So we returned to our room from a day at Hollywood Studios and a few hours or less at EPCOT. DH and I decided we'd head to the resort, get the kids (and the adults) some rest and have dinner there on the cheap. Then if we were up for it later in the evening we could return to EPCOT for a few things since our Test Track fastpasses were good between 7:45pm and 8:45pm.

We stopped in the room, dropped off the kids and in-laws, then I placed an order at Flippers for pizza and salads. We had just enough time until our order was ready for a quick Walmart run for some shorts for the kids and some drinks.

Back at Flippers around 6:15pm and guess what? No pizza! Apparently the online orders don't always go thru according to the guy there but he can rush an order through for me...yippee! So I place the order and probably 20 minutes later it's ready! We aren't far away at SSR but DH has already mentioned he's made a decision to bag returning to the park. I know this will send at least one kid into a spiral so since it's still somewhat warmish (around 75) I figure we'll offer pool time as a park replacement.

So we enjoy yummy pizza and salad and at 7pm kids are in suits and ready for the pool. It's still 75 but the temps start dropping fast.

They got a good hour at the pool before MOM (me) was getting chilly and decided we better call it a night. Now back in the room for the evening.

Plans for tomorrow...they have changed. Originally I had MK all day. Now the plan is EPCOT for the morning to be sure we get in Test Track and Soarin'. Anything else is a bonus. I have an ADR at MK for The Plaza for dinner but we'll see what happens. I may have to research others since that ADR is pretty early.

So we missed our Rose and Crown ADR so I'll see maybe if we can do something there tomorrow. Don't know yet. MK is open until 11pm so maybe our best bet is another park and then rest day and MAYBE try to his MK for a few hours in the evening. That means Monday will be our MK morning where I am still hoping to get in Belle's Storytime if we can get there early enough.

I'll try to do updates as I can tomorrow.

Good morning from SSR. We are up and getting ready for our day before 7am so I expect another rope drop at EPCOT won't be an issue.

I continue to fight off some irritating cough that I think today will require advil as it feels like a sore throat is imminent. So after spending Thur and Fri popping zycam like candy, switched to cough drops yesterday since this cough just hits suddenly and then it is nonstop to the point where it begins to affect my gag reflex. I almost vomited yesterday at Animation at HS when it struck me. However I was fine during the entire drawing class.

Anyway EPCOT plan is rope drop and Soarin and TEst Track first thing. Beyond that, probably Mission Space and Living Seas then lunch in Worked Showcase. If we can tolerate it we will stay and then head to MK. We are considering dinner off property and then to MK. If weather is warm as expected maybe we will have to make some pool time for kids again.

Will update as I can...

Sounds like you are using your Dis-sense. Sometimes the best laid plans just don't work out in the real world. For family harmony, you've got to be willing to change plans on the fly. Hope you are having a wonderful day!

Very very true. The advantage of coming here often is we know what to do when things need to change. We don't have to do it ALL and still haven't in as.many trips as we've been here.

OK so another perfect weather day here in FLA. Wish I could bottle it up and take it home. We have hit all the big attractions and are in line for Mission: Space now while our bellies are full from chips and dips and drinks at La Cava de Tequila. We had a nice lunch at Marrakesh and have had our share or snacks too. After this we plan to do Sum of all Thrills and head out. Maybe another pool night. Maybe mini golf. Maybe sleep. Who knows?

If I am awake long enough later you will see another update.

OK it's Almost 8pm and I am in our room. We managed EPCOT until about 6pm, riding Mission:Space and Sum of all Thrills last. Just when I thought I wax done with potty accidents with kids, my 8yo (who BTW is NOTORIOUS for waiting until the last minute in line to proclaim a bathroom emergency) waits until his coaster is built in SofAT to have an accident. At least it wasn't on the ride! So my other kids ride and I rush into Mouse gear and find some sweatpants for an emergency change.

Back in our room close to 6pm and I tell the kids to put on suits... and we head to the pool. The slide here closes at 7pm so they missed out on it last night. They got about 30 mins in on it tonight.

We just ordered food from Flippers again. I enjoyed their caesar salad last night and others are getting subs and wings. I can tell the other adults are done but me and kids not so much. DH had told me I can go to MK without him...and we might. Our bldg is right in front of a bus stop...would be easy. We will see how I feel after dinner. I am not even that hungry.
