HEY GUYS!! bighug We're back!

We got back yesterday evening, and while it's always sad to leave The Most Magical Place on Earth, it's so nice to be back in our own beds, and catch up on some much needed rest!
We were so excited to start putting together our video trip report, we got the Mac out at the Orlando airport while we were waiting for our flight! We are definitely beginners at this, and I think it shows laugh so sorry about that! Also, there are some silly, dumb moments that we decided to keep in there just because that's basically who we are deep down(ok, maybe not so deep...probably more like right on the surface cool )

We don't even HAVE another trip in the works, so you're luckier than you think! We definitely need to come up with another time to go so we can start another countdown....

OMG the kitty cat teapots in the shop in Japan! Must have one!

And where were you standing for Illuminations? Great spot.

I love these video trip reports. It's almost like being there myself. Great job, ladies, and I look forward to more.

Loving your video trip report! You are so right about Circle of Life being Wall-E themed. It would have been perfect. On a side note, I found it a bit funny that a company that filled in thousands of acres of Florida swampland to build a theme park has a show about environmental conservation. I guess they realized the error of their ways.

aahhh I said that when we were editing- "we said we would tell them about dinner and we didn't!"
Honestly, probably my favorite meal of the trip. I think most of us got the Carne Asada(steak) and that was delicious, but my mom got some kind of 3 course meal with fish tacos as the entree. It was included on the DDP even though it had an appetizer with it- If I eat there again, esp with the dining plan, I would get that. Oh, and I got the cheesecake with caramel sauce, and that was amazing as well.
Both San Angel Inn and La Hacienda are amazing, you can't go wrong with anything in "Mexico" imo.

And yes, Barbara, Wall-E is seriously underrepresented in The World- heck, not even represented at all! I mean, what's the deal? waiting It's a great movie and the character is so cute!

Glad you guys are still enjoying! I think they get better as the week goes on- we got the hang of it as we went on. awesome

That's awesome to hear! My in-laws are kind of picky eaters so I'm having trouble picking restaurants in Epcot to eat at, but everyone likes Mexican food, right? muchlove
