Was still a little tired from the day before and since my feet were still screaming at me I decided we’d take our time about getting out this morning. Didn’t do to bad though, had b’fast before we left, out the door- then back in the door…for more clothes. It was f-r-e-e-z-i-n-g!!! Where is the warm sunny Oct Florida wheather? Felt like that guy from the movie Cool Runnings that ran back in the Airport for everything warm he had:laugh:. Back out to the bus and still made it to Epcot by 10. No biggie, only lost an hour. Jo stayed at the hotel all day. Apparently her feet got wind of all the walking we were planning and after the blisters she’d gotten at MK the day before they just wouldn’t let her go.:laugh:
In the door and first off FP Test Track. Dani & Em had never done this before so we knew it’d be a battle to get them on. Jess couldn’t wait. Started slow with Ellen’s UoE then on to TT. The girls it and couldn’t wait to get back on. Should’ve noticed that something was up when the line to get fp’s was longer than any of the other 3 standbys. I found out later why. Wanted to see what was different about SE since it closed the month after our last trip. Other than no AT&T ads I couldn’t tell a difference. Headed over to the Land since Living with the Land was back open again. We love that ride. Decided to wait till Wed for Soarin when Jo came back with us. Hit several other pavillions, back to TT to use our FP’s before heading into WS. Then we saw it…
OMG WHERE DID ALL THESE PEOPLE COME FROM???:ohmy: It was shoulder to shoulder people from Norway to France across the front. The backside was pretty full too but at least I could see an occasional piece of pavement looking across,lol. Well, that just answered our question about most everything in FW being walk-on. Everyone was in WS.
Normally we start at Canada and go counter-clockwise but since the girls were doing Kim Possible we went straight to Norway. 1st mission- Mexico, 2nd UK (NOW dh was happy). Since we hadn’t eaten lunch I let the girls take turns with 2 on a mission and 1 eating at our first three countries. I, however feel like I ate at all of them and many booths in between:happy: What I did like about KP was after the 1st mission we got to choose from a list which country to do next, otherwise we would’ve zig-zagged all over WS and been wore out. Between the 2 days we were there only country KP didn’t make it to was Morrocco. I really wanted to see Jon Secada but everytime we came close to Amerca the show was well under way. We finally caught the last one. Of course food has to accompany so dh picked up a round of dogs, burgers & barbq for all of us. He wanted to make sure we had dinner tonight after the last two, which later he wished he hadn’t. That Bar b q DID NOT sit well with him. There ya go folks…3 for 3.
Every trip we’ve always caught Illuminations from the Mexico area. I wanted to see what the rest of the world looks like so this time especially since we were already in the back of the park from the concert we decided to look there, around Italy I think. View was the same-just as awesome, but 75% less people and the option to walk up 15 min prior instead of the usual 60-75 min wait. Found our new spot, whoo-hoo!
Some of my favs: Cheddar Cheese Soup in Canada, the Moosehead and sausage wasn’t bad but when they say spicy they mean it.
I was most dissapointed with the grand marnier parfait. I really expected it to be in a glass and not a small frozen like patty plopped on a plate with 1/2 oz of compote sauce across the top. They could’ve done so much more with that.
Cheese was good, it was cheese.
Empanada from Buenos Aris was really good, liked it better w/o the salsa.
Fish & Chips in UK and something from the tap is always a must.
Choc lava cake w/ganache from Ireland was quite tasty.
Choc Creme Brulee in France OMG soo good. A Choc Croissant and champagne while there is also a given. The red slushy with grey goose was :blow: I really tried but it had to go! In the trash it went. Not much on sweet syrupy things.
DH & I split a Beer Hop, what I liked he didn’t and what he liked I didn’t. Don’t ask which was which because I really couldn’t tell you at this point, and probably couldn’t then either.
The cannoli’s in Italy were heaven, the cannelonni wasn’t too bad either but dh & dd14 are my 2 Italian lovers.
DD14 had a soup from Thai with Chick, coconut, mushroom, lemongrass & ginger. She said it was really good, i’m not a mushroom person though.
The potstickers in China left much to be desired for and some drink they had, a lychee something also made it to the trash.
Germany had a really good brat-in-a-pretzel thing, and of course beer. Norway-beer, nuff said there.
New Orleans was awesome. crawfish etouffe, and the bourbon praline pudding YUM-MY. Had to get 2nds on those. Felt like home:wink:
Outside of N.O. my 2nd fav has got to be in Mexico the churros and my new best friend for that trip- Blue Correlajo:whistling:tongue:
A nice surprise entering the park
Brain FREEEEZE at Cool Station
