Alas, I was hoping to be able to regale everyone in the delights of all my illustrious photos of places and food...but it wasn't meant to be.
On the upside: we *did go* to WDW, specifically Epcot and Magic Kingdom...Coronado Springs turned out better than expected (it even had separate shampoo and conditioner ) and we didn't get rained-out.
On the downside: I hate...HATE our digital camera...and my cell phone camera.
On the upside: we *now have* a new camera...all I have to do is read the manual and figure out how to operate it. Fortunately, I have time before I absolutely need it (a niece's wedding, in South Carolina, at the end of April.)
The good of the trip:
I got to go on the following rides, that I'd never done before: Dumbo, the Teacups, Haunted Mansion, It's a Small World, and something or other with music...I forget, it was a last minute, before the park closes, sort of thing.
I also got to see the Electrical Parade...*that* was cool! I'm really, really glad we used a FP for it, so we were *right there* and had space to move a lil bit.
Most humorous thing heard in Magic Kingdom: (from a child who couldn't have been older than 7) "I'm not here to make friends!" OMG...*that* was hilarious...I was like, awesome!
Most humorous thing said to me, at Epcot, at Rose & Crown Pub: "You got the manly drink!" I don't recall if I had the Leaping Leprechaun or the Dragon...but whichever allegedly has more alcohol, that's what I had. DH had the one that actually *tasted like* it had more alcohol.
Anyway...something that surprised me: it got up to 87 degrees *real fast*...and was at 90% humidity. I, being me, wore jeans and regretted the heck out of it. DH says he's okay with August-hot-sticky, so I'm like "Okay...looks like I'll be investing in some trendy skorts then." I already have a hand-fan, so I'm good to go there.
The second day was overcast and I was thankful...I think it stayed in the low 80s. It's amazing what a few degrees can do.
Bummer things: didn't get a Kobe burger or Dole Whip, didn't get to Ohana, didn't tour the resorts as I'd hoped to do.
On the upside: I can remedy all of the bummer things, during the next trip!
Wish I could be as awesome as all the rest of the folks with their incredible TRs, but alas, I can aspire to it for the August trip.
Also, sorry I've been M.I.A. One day rolls into another...oy!
