It's NEVER too late to finish a trip report. And I also have one that's waiting to be finished, so it's good to know I'm not the only procrastinator.

I couldn't agree more!!!! I'm making myself hungry looking at them and whilst on a pre Disney diet this is not a good combo!

I'll let my pictures do the talking but this ADR was tied for the best single TS credit meal we had (tied with Raglan Road) mam also had a maccaw cocktail something and i had a lapu lapu

I wanted to take my pineapple with me so i got a bag and we headed off to MK, when we arrived we found a spot round the side of the plaza (where all the construction was in october last year) and we started talking to this CM who was really lovely and told us where we could stand so we wouldn't get moved he was so nice and kept chatting to us aswell as doing crowd control he was fantastic! we watched celebrate the magic and wishes (which i sang to and CM heard oops!) which was just amazing i love it!!!! here are a few pictures!

It sounds like you ladies had a wonderful vacation. Did you love O'hana? DH and I are eating dinner there for the first time this fall. The food and cocktails look great in your pictures.

We loved ohana we were going to go back this year but they have swapped the pork for the chicken and pork is my fav meat ever and chicken is the least so we decided to skip it but it was definitely one of our highlights for sure I'm sure you will love it!

Tuesday 7th October

Our last full day sad

We got up pretty early as we needed to pack some more (we had a LOT of stuff) but we had to be up and out for our ADR at 1900 Park Fare, we were running ahead of schedule so we decided to take the monorail to Grand Floridian and have a look around before our ADR everything was going smoothly............until we got to the TTC and we were told there was a monorail broken down at Grand Floridian so we couldn't move until they moved that one, we had plenty time we would just wait..........we waited forever!!! an announcement came out to say the restaurants had been notified that we were stuck so they would accept us whenever we arrived.......EVENTUALLY they put buses on to take us because the monorail just was not going anywhere and surprisingly we were right on time for our ADR so we got taken straight in and seated all the characters were out great! mam went to get a plate of food and winnie the pooh so I tried and failed at taking a nice selfie (decide for yourselves!!!)

mam came back and before I went up tigger came around this was great!
 photo 00000000-0000-0000-0000-00000000372D_zpskkln7oby.jpg
we noticed that Alice went back inside but mad hatter and Mary Poppins were still meeting and they were just on the next row of tables to us so we assumed we were next..... nope they disappeared into another part of the restaurant and didn't see them come back, so we ate our food while waiting of them coming back, Alice didn't come out we had no idea where Mary Poppins and mad hatter went but we had seen tigger and pooh 3 times by now! when we finally found a CM we asked about this and we were told we just had to wait and they would be coming by.....okay so we waited a bit longer but by the time we got to an hour we decided to find the lady for the bill, couldn't see her either! when we did she took aaaaages to come back and while she was away Alice and Mary Poppins came back out so we quickly snapped pictures with Alice (who was odd - not sure why but I took the time to write in my notes she was odd) and Mary Poppins we decided not to wait for the Mad Hatter because we had waited long enough and wanted to be at MK for our last day

all in all we were disappointed we had such an amazing experience last time but this time could not have been more different sad
we did make it over to MK in time for our Big thunder Mountain FP so after we did this we headed to Fantasyland because earlier in the week we had managed to snag a BOG lunch - we could eat breakfast and lunch within a few hours of eachother right??? we past memento mori and popped in for a look which is just amazing!!!! you have to go in it!!!

it was BOG time by now was I hungry? - no but was I going to eat it? Hell to the yes!!! so off we went I had 1 bite of my delicious meal and quickly realised this was not going to be as easy as I thought! we managed to eat the pork and our cupcakes (I was not leaving those little drops of heaven!) and to be honest we were ready to burst!!!

so whats the best way to recover from being THAT full? Seven Dwarfs Mine Train of course!!! which was amazing as usual! we came off and the park was like super busy!!! everything had long waits but according to the app Space Mountain only had a 30min wait woohoo so off we went but by the time we got there it was closed we decided to go on Carousel of Progress to have a rest and then on TTA in the hope of seeing space mountain with the lights on - no such luck the ride was back up and running it was showing 45min wait but the line was waaaaaaaay out of the door so we decided not to bother we had LOTS of packing to do so we said goodbye to MK and we will see you next year
As we were walking out we caught the end of Festival of Fantasy and I got my jasmine mug for work.

We got back to the room and started pack when on earth did we buy all this stuff we had every possible bag packed to bursting point and we still had stuff left!!! (our available luggage was 2 large cases, 2 holdalls, 2 small cases and 2 handbags) we were going to have to get another bag to check in eek eek so we decided the best place to go would be EPCOt because we had 17 snack credits left to use eek

When we arrived at EPCOT we headed for mousegears and I got my eye on a Vera Bradley holdall we decided to make sure we could secure another bag to check in before buying which we did and then went over to buy it (our visa card hurt!!!) after we had secured this it was time for food! mam wasn't feeling to great and dint have a massive appetite but she soldiered on! this is the run of food I didn't take any pictures because we were on a tight schedule!!!

Hawaii - Aulani Sunset - YUMMY!
Puerto Rico - beef chilli something? - I didn't like it the texture was weird
Canada - Filet Mignon - Gorgeous I want one now!
Ireland - Fishermans Pie - this was mam only and she loves it but it was her only food of the night sad
France - Boef Bourginon - out of this world!!!
Brazil - Pork Belly - I'm running out of good words for these foods!
we tried to go to Japan for some teriakyi but they had none left
Hops and Barley - Lobster Alfredo - YUCK! yuck

by this time it was just before 9 so mam found a bench in Italy and I ran over to the booth to get 2 of the chicken dishes and we sat to watch the fireworks, we didn't have the best view but we weren't crowded and looking back at the pictures I personally think they are beautiful!!!
