    I just found a hidden mickey in your fried rice picture - look at the peas!! LOL!! Am loving this trip report and all the photo's!! I can't wait for our first trip in September and to collect all the awesome american candy from the Halloween party (we're from Australia)!! Completely agree that Cadburys chocolate is THE BEST!! It's huge here in Australia and is the chocolate of choice.

    Haha oh my gosh, you're right! There is a hidden Mickey!
    That's so cool that you're visiting WDW for the first time very soon! I hope you enjoy the American candy although I feel like Cadbury is far superior to Hershey's lol!

    Thank you! I think it's a great way to remember all the fun memories you made in EPCOT!

    The One Where We Eat All of The Things
    We were going to Germany because we had some snack credits to burn! :lovestruc

    It was about time we tried Karamell-Kuche! It honestly smelled SO good in that place. I didn’t want to leave!!:sad: Bless you Germany and your amazing caramel :hug:

    We picked up some prepacked popcorn for my Dad
    [​IMG]
    Then I chose a chocolate covered strawberry. I wouldn't have bought this with my own money since it was close to $4 for just one strawberry ( :scared: ) but since I had extra credits I went for it. It was SO good!!
    [​IMG]
    and Mom got some plain caramel popcorn for us to try. All of it was sooo delicious!! I’m actually craving it now!
    [​IMG]
    After this, we were pretty much done in the WS and it was near dinner time so we headed back on a Friendship Boat!
    [​IMG]
    It was just such a beautiful day!
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    We were going to try someplace new for both of us and I was very excited!
    [​IMG]

    Sunshine Seasons! This is a place I've been dying to try since I started reading TR's back in 2013! I think this is a great place to come if you have people in your group that like a lot of different things because there are so many options here!
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    So because we had just snacked on some treats from Germany, Hot Momma and I shared a meal here.
    Also side note: I noticed all of the gluten-free options they had out here for people!
    [​IMG]
    Anyway, we chose steak, corn on the cob and mashed potatoes!
    [​IMG]

    I’m a little embarrassed to say I was legitimately excited to eat some vegetables!:laughing: Sometimes you do have to eat a little healthy in Disney.

    The food was very yummy, I was really happy with it! Of course, I'm sure you guys are most interested in what we got for dessert (because that's the most important part of the meal, ya know?)
    Strawberry shortcake!
    [​IMG]
    This was good, but I don't think I would get it again. It just wasn't my favorite. :confused3

    I just spent an enjoyable afternoon reading about your adventures. I was considering dropping the WDW portion of our trip in September but your report has me rethinking my plans to do just Universal this time.

    By the way...I agree with the poster who said you would make a great Disney Princess...perhaps Aurora.

    Haha me too, that's why when I saw the shirt I just knew I needed it! The obsession went so far as I picked them as my research topic for a final paper in my history class last semester! :tongue:
    Oh wow, thank you for reading I'm so glad you like my trip report!! I hope you do end up going to WDW in September, It's such a fun time to visit!

    You are too sweet, thank you for the compliment!! If I ever did have the chance to be friends with a princess, Aurora has always been my favorite so this comment totally made my day :flower3:

    There's No Crying In Disney!
    After our lovely dinner, it was time to visit the big blue world!! Finding Nemo and Friends is such a great ride. :love:
    [​IMG]
    It’s always so nice and dark and cool on that ride and not to mention, it’s incredibly adorable. I don’t think Hot Momma had ridden that before, but she definitely thought it was cute!

    After the ride we looked around in the gift shop a bit then decided it was probably near the time to go get a spot for Illuminations! We ended up choosing a spot right across from the Canada Pavilion. I was pretty happy with our choice even though there were a few trees in our view, I love this show so much I really didn’t care.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I think we got to our spot around 45 minutes before the show. So I left Hot Momma to guard out spot while I ran to the restrooms near the beginning of the WS. Those bathrooms are SO tiny it honestly took me 20-30 minutes to get there and back! Hot Momma was actually getting worried because I was gone so long. Thankfully I finally made it back and sat on the ground snacking on some popcorn and before too long, the show started. :hyper:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    There aren't too many pictures because oh. My. Gosh. I loved this show so much.

    All our terrible luck with fireworks this trip totally didn’t matter because this experience totally made up for it!!:cloud9: This wasn’t a first time for either of us but with the combination of exhaustion, and being our last day, you can bet that I cried. OH YES, I cried like a baby. I broke the cardinal Disney rule and I'm not even sorry about it. :laughing: I just couldn’t get it together even after it was over. I was walking back toward future world sniffing and trying to avoid judgey looks from other guests! :rotfl:
    But really, thanks to this experience, I’m going to take a very uncommon atance and pronounce Illuminations as officially my favorite fireworks show in all of WDW. Gahhh I miss it so much now.:sad:

    It's Not Over Yet!!
    With the end of Illuminations, I believed this was the end of my trip. :sad: Hot Momma and I trudged our way to the front of the park and popped into Mouse Gear for some last minute souvenirs.

    BUT THEN.
    I remembered Hot Momma and I still had a bunch of QS and snack credits we needed to use up!! Right around the time I went down for my trip, I started hearing that Disney will now exchange (2?) snack credits for one QS meal credit. I can't remember how many credits we had left exactly but it seemed to be a pretty good amount. SO, we headed up to the register with many, many cookies and snacks in hand ready to exchange out our credits when the CM told us that this exchange can only happen somewhere that is considered a QS location. Fortunately/unfortunately for us the only place that had the cookies we wanted and is also considered a QS location is the Main Street Confectionary! YEP! BACK TO MK!! :worship:
    [​IMG]
    Honestly, I can't believe Hot Momma agreed to do such a thing!!:angel: But we headed out of the park and went to hop on the monorail but the line was horrendous. So "smart" little me was like "Oh, that's okay! We'll just grab a bus to on of the MK resorts and take the monorail from there."

    NOPE.
    So then I said "We'll just take a bus to the TTC and take the monorail from there"

    NOPE.

    SO we finally ended up grabbing a bus to Wilderness Lodge! The bus came quickly and it was a short ride to the lodge! I wish I would have gotten to see more than just the bus area but I did take a picture of the lovely lights above me.:confused:
    [​IMG]
    A MK bus arrived within 5 minutes and we were off, while hearing Wishes boom in the background every now and again.

    When we got to MK and through security, we headed to the bathrooms right inside the gate where I attempted to take a picture of this adorable sign. (Dear me, all of my pictures from this night are so BLURRY)
    [​IMG]
    There was a really sweet CM in there asking us how a trip was going and was very sad to hear that it was our last night. Same, lady. Same.

    We pushed through the insane saturday night crowd an headed into the Confectionary! This place was a zoo!! Hot Momma and I grabbed the goodies we wanted to buy and quickly got in line.
    BONUS: we got some of the chocolate and M&M covered rice krispies that are the most perfect things I've ever put in my mouth :littleangel:

    [​IMG]
    We probably stood there for close to 20 minutes before we finally made it to the counter. There was a CP at the register who was training in this madness. :eek: I felt so bad that we had to be so complicated but we really threw her for a loop when we wanted to convert our QS credits into snacks. She finally found another CM to help her out though and after doing the transaction a few times, we made it out of there!
    Try to see past the horrific quality and see how many people were packed on Main Street!
    [​IMG]
    See Ya real Soon, MK! This time for real!!
    [​IMG]
    We grabbed a bus back to ASSports and I took pictures of everything we had bought that day before showering and heading to bed.

    It was totally worth all of that work to get all of this goodness:love:
