I've done the Visa meet twice now, first time we just got Mickey and this last trip it was Goofy and Mickey.
Pluto's new spot is really nice! We were lucky to get to meet him twice! It's funny how you really never know who you will get at the Visa meet. The first time I did it I got Minnie & Goofy.

Talking/Reading about the F&W festival makes my mouth water too! I can only dream of the day I get to go back, and I'm sure you do the same!

Your daughter is a girl after my own heart, I love Maleficent

That duffy is so cute! I might end up taking Santa Duffy home next month...

I love the Seas too. Its especially awesome when the dolphins are feeling playful!
My mom definitely loves the characters almost as much as me! My dad likes some of them, but others he definitely just does for us

My one regret is not getting a Duffy! They had the cutest pumpkin one that I really wish I got! So I say you should definitely bring home Santa Duffy

I definitely regretted even bothering with flip flops, I definitely have learned my lesson for next time. And thank you

I absolutely LOVE that your folks wanted to meet Chip and Dale and sent YOU to get FP's. Usually it's the other way around. So cool!

Yes I totally sympathize with your flip flop dilemma. Not easy to walk in when it's raining.

I often wonder how many people have ridden Soarin' without even knowing about the smells. Back in the day it was guaranteed, but now it's pretty hit and miss.
Soarin' definitely leaves an impact! I didn't realize the smells were so hit or miss...it's such an important part of the ride in my opinion!

HAHA yes the roles were definitely reversed in that situation!

Thank you! Yes, F&W talk always leads to hunger

That sucks about the rain! I don't mind a little rain in Disney World, but downpours can certainly put a damper on the day, no pun intended. I hope you were able to go back another time and see Duffy!

Epcot can be good and bad in the rain. It is such a long walk in the rain to get from building to building, but at least once you are inside of one, there are usually a few things you can do inside to kill some time and wait out the rain.

Cute pics from your Visa meet! That was another thing we didn't have time for this year. For some reason we always have Goofy! Minnie & Pluto is a good combo.

I agree with you about Epcot!

Thank you! HAHA I got Goofy last time! I was pleased meeting Minnie & Pluto

Day 3 - Epcot Continued

For some reason my notes are not very good from this point on, so I'm trying to piece everything together. I will blame it on the pain my feet were in haha. I THINK we rode Spaceship Earth now, since there was no line this time. We still had some time before out Test Track FP so Dad suggested we do the Orange Side of Mission Space. Another not so good idea of the day. Both Mom & Dad did not feel so well afterwards (more so Mom :-/). I felt fine, but like I said, I can do without going on this ride. We then used our Test Track FPs!


wdw201328011307749_6858940271 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We were pretty much done with what we wanted to do in Future World and food was definitely a necessity so we decided to head back to WS. This time we went to the left. We all decided to try different things. Mom got the Scallops from Brazil, I got the Garlic Shrimp from Australia, and Dad got the Lamb Chop from Australia. We all enjoyed what we got and it was definitely good to get some food in our tummies! I was still hungry so Mom & I also split a Beef Empanada from Argentina which I thought was super yummy!

We decided to try our luck again with Duffy so Dad & I got in line. Mom sat this one out as she still wasn't fully recovered from Mission Space. We didn't wait too long and we finally met Duffy! He was so sweet and cuddly

wdw201328011325276_6858477701 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

After saying goodbye to Duffy we were finally ready to tour World Showcase! We started from Canada and the goal was to walk all the way around and try anything that interested us along the way! It didn't take too long to make our first stop as I was DYING to try the Cheddar Cheese Soup from Candada.


578 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

This did NOT dissapoint! It had a little kick to it which was nice, and I only wished it was a little bigger! At the same time, Mom decided to try the Warm Chocolate Custard from Ireland. I took a bite and it wasn't bad!

We continued our walk over to the UK...and the skies opened up again We ran over to the Toy Solider shop and took cover there. The rain was coming down pretty hard and we actually wasted a lot of time in there waiting for it to stop. Alice was actually meeting inside the shop and since there was really no one waiting I decided to pass the time and meet her!


437 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

Now one of my goals was also to meet Mary Poppins. They said if the rain kept up she'd also be meeting in here. It was almost time for her set, so we, as well as a few others, formed a line to wait for her. Well the time came and she didn't appear. The rain also seemed to have let up. Finally after a few minutes someone told us "Oh Mary is meeting outside now". So we all bolted outside, where lo and be hold, there was Mary! Luckily there weren't that many people in line, but it was still frustrating that noone told us, especially after they saw us forming the line for her. But nonetheless, we met Mary and she was wonderful! She noticed my birthday pin and asked if I was going to be eating any sweets and I replied "Well maybe a little rum punch". She liked that and called me precocious


450 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We continued on through WS, hoping rain wouldn't stop us again. We reached France where I just had to get a Grand Marnier Slush


wdw201328011344443_6858477717 by missangelalexis, on Flickr


596 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We kept walking and found an available table near the Belgium stand, which was perfect because we also wanted to try a waffle! Mom & I sat while Dad got on line. As we were sitting there, I see Dad flagging me down. I run over and ask him, what's the matter?! Turns out, he didn't know if he should get the chocolate waffle or the fruit waffle We decided it might be best to just get both Turned out to be a good choice! I preferred the chocolate over the fruit, but both were tasty!

We rested for a few minutes and this is where we decided we probably wouldn't stay for Illuminations. We were all tired and my feet were not holding up well. I think mom was a little dissapointed but I told her it would be best if we went back and used the time to rest, as we had several late nights coming up that we definitely wouldn't be backing out of. In the end, she agreed we made the right decision this night.

However, we still had the rest of WS to walk through! We got to Morocco and walked around a little. I noticed Jasmine & Aladdin were greeting in there little area. I wasn't going to stop, but the line was not very long and Mom & Dad didn't seem to mind, so we went in!


wdw201328011360051_6855786640 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We kept walking and made it through the halfway point of WS. The Eat to the Beat concert was going on (Sugar Ray) so we were able to hear that while I stopped to get us some Lobster Rolls. I love Lobster Rolls and this one definitely hit the spot! It's a little small, but it's packed with nothing but Lobster meat so it was totally worth it. If they weren't so pricy I definitely would have had another! I also wish I tried the Lobster Tail but oh well!

We continued our walk and night started to fall. Unfortunately we ended up rushing through the last few pavillions. Snow White was out in Germany but her line was unfortunately already closed. I also wanted to try the Apple Strudel but the line was longer than I wanted to wait in so we skipped it. We did stop for some pictures along the way, but decided to skip riding Maelstrom and the Grand Fiesta Tour.

wdw201328011366424_6858477713 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

After finishing WS, we walked back to Future World and made a stop back at the Festival Center. Dad had seen a shirt he liked earlier. Unfortunately they didn't even have his size We stopped at the Photo Center to pick up our free Visa 5x7 (which took forever it seemed) before heading out of the park!

wdw201328111376793_6858477704 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

It was a successful day though I wish we had another day to spend in Epcot. The rain definitely wasted more of our time than we realized. But on the bright side, we tried most of the foods we wanted to and none of it disappointed us! I also enjoyed getting the passport stamped at all the places we stopped. I will say that Mom & Dad fell in love with F&W and this definitely started the talks of a "next time" trip

List of Firsts for the day:
-Rode Mission Space (Orange Side)
-Met Duffy
-Met Mary Poppins
-Attended Food & Wine


Up Next: The Dark Side! (Universal/IoA)

Ahh your poor Mom on MS. We don't do the Orange side anymore, I can handle it but rarely can anyone else. My Mom freaked out over the green side, she'll never be going near that ride again.

Duffy is so cute in his pumpkin costume! I can't wait to see him in his Christmas gear.

I have never tried that cheadder cheese soup either but I'm dying too. Hopefully someday I'll make it to F&W and try it then!

Haha funny story about the waffles, but I agree two is better than one! They both sound delicious but I think I'd like the fruit better too!

I love all the pictures you guys stopped for on your way out!

With my motion sickness issues, Mission Space Orange is a definite no do for me. I have ridden the green side but it's kind of boring. The only reason I ever ride it now is because I love Gary Sinise!

I so wanted to try that Lamb Chop in Australia but since we started on the Canada side, I ended up not getting one. The Beef Empanada though was my husbands favorite dish.

I totally understand skipping some of the stuff in the last couple of countries. I always end up neglecting Mexico and Canada depending on which side I start. It just takes a long time to get around all those countries!

I wish Alice was meeting in that store the one night we were there because it rained for a bit. We did end up meeting Pooh and Rabbit in Christopher Robbins room though.

i'd like to come to F&W when our kids our bigger. I think my DH would really love it. sounds like you found lots of yummy snacks!

Bahaha, great TT photo for buddy in front of you.

Awww, Duffy is adorable in his Halloween outfit. I haven't met up with him for a few years, so maybe I will in his Xmas outfit.

Oy, stupid Epcot and rain.

Mmmmmmmm GM Slushie. Goooooood.

Awwwwwwwwwww, how cute is that photo of you all in China. You're the centre of attention for sure.

I'm glad the rain let up some time so you could walk around WS and sample from F&W. And that you got to meet Duffy! I think he is just so cute in his pumpkin outfit.

The pic with your parents in China is just adorable.

The Orange side is now permanently nixed from my future trips. I have experienced it, it was cool, but honestly not worth the risk of the "ick" later.

Love your interaction with Mary Poppins!

I really had no idea what to expect on the Orange side. I'm glad I at least tried it but doubt I would do it again!

Duffy is the cutest, the pics of him in his Christmas gear are so adorable!

And thank you, we definitely made use of our PP+!

It does take a long time to get through the countries! Even if you take your time and go slow, it's still tiring.

Ah at least you got to meet Pooh and RABBIT! Would've loved to meet him!

The only two times I've gone on it and have been this year, so I can't really tell you if it's different, I'm sorry

F&W is so awesome, I definitely recommend doing it one year!

Yes thank goodness the day wasn't a completely washout! Duffy is the cutest! And thank you, It was the photographer's idea and I'm glad he suggested it!

Day 4 - Universal Studios/IoA

Hope all my American readers had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!


Day 4 - Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure

As with the mornings prior, we woke up early and caught a cab by around 8am. We arrived at the park by 8:30. We would be heading into Universal Studios first and hitting up Islands of Adventure in the afternoon.


510 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

I'm pretty sure they opened the park around 8:45 and we headed straight to Despicable Me! Despite being there early and getting in line right away, it was still about a 15 minutes wait. This ride is SUCH a slow loader (but totally worth the wait in my opinion!).


515 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

I love Despicable Me and I love this ride Mom (also a huge DM fan) and Dad both enjoyed as well! From there we headed to the Transformers ride. This was a new ride even for myself, so I was pretty excited! We got there to find no wait at all! We hopped right on and WOW was I impressed with this ride! I didn't take any pictures in this area I meant to go back later on but it never end, oh well there's always next time right?

From there it time to head to SPRINGIELD! This was the part of the Dad was most excited about, and how cruel of me to drag him to 2 other rides before he could actually get there I was excited too to see all the new things that were added since my January trip. I have to say, it looks AWESOME!


529 by missangelalexis, on Flickr


520 by missangelalexis, on Flickr


851 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We looked around a little and then went on the ride, which only had about a 5 minute wait.

Once we got off, it was time to leave Springfield (but only for a little while, we would be back soon!) and head over to where the Despicable Me characters would be coming out. This changed SO much since my last trip! In January it was like a mini-parade with floats and music. This time, the characters basically just walked out to greet and take pictures. I wanted to make sure Mom got pictures with everyone and she did with the exception of Edith who was not out for some reason.


802 by missangelalexis, on Flickr


803 by missangelalexis, on Flickr


805 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We also ran into these two!


797 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

After this we rode The Mummy and Men In Black before heading back to Springfield for some lunch! We all got Krusty Burgers and ate in Moe's Tavern I gotta say, it felt pretty cool!


522 by missangelalexis, on Flickr


530 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

After eating we rode the new Kang & Kodos Twirl ride with no wait.


545 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We then saw the whole Simpsons family out meeting! The line was already cut, but they gave us the time of their next set and also let us know that Krusty & Sideshow Bob would be out meeting soon, so we waited around and met them!


848 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We then headed over to ET, which had about a 10-15 minute wait. I enjoy that ride for nostalgia purposes Once we got off we headed back over to the Despicable Me ride area to check out the gift shop where I wish I could have brought home ALL of these....


868 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

...And to meet a minion, since they aren't out during the first hour that the park is open.


863 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

Then it was back to Springfield to wait for the Simpson family's next set.


549 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

They were super fun and this made for a great picture!

Fun update from Universal!

I think our plan for Friday is the same as yours! I was thinking Universal first, IOA second, it looks like I have the right idea.

I'm so excited for Despicable Me and Transformers!

I love all the character photos, they are all super fun!

Can't wait to hear about the rest of your Universal day!

Ahh I loved the DM ride!! So much better than the Jimmy Neutron ride that came before it. So much fun and how does anyone not adore the minions.

Now Transformers I am really looking forward to. Not that I'm a big Transformers fan, but this ride sounds so good.

And Springfield!! My God this is insane all the new stuff in only a year.

I can't get over all the characters out greeting now. Once upon a time there was only a handful, now it seems loaded. So much to look forward to.
