So you started this thing the day before I left for my trip, and I'm now just finding it here, and your trip is pretty much over. Well, I enjoyed catching up on it all at once, and I'm a little bummed that I didn't even see that character spot in Storybook Circus! I love their costumes and the theming of everything. Darn it!

You certainly did make good use of your BWV location; I'm looking forward to doing the same on our next two trips (BWV in January, and BCV in June). LOTS of Epcot time!

Just caught up with your last few updates and really enjoyed seeing all your F&W Festival pictures I loved the New Zealand scallop and to be honest I thought it was a mashed sweet potato that it sat on I don't always pay attention to the details of the menu board! So nice that you got to meet up with Cam, Luke and Heather! I always seem to get the kid behind me on the plane that kicks my seat! Looking forward to your final thoughts. Are you going to start a PTR soon for your December trip? I wish my trip overlapped when you all will be going again this year

Great pics, Sharon. I really liked the filet from South Africa. It was one of my favorites from F&W in 2010.

Not sure about Laptop Lady but maybe her cellphone was on the fritz and she had no other camera.

Good to know I'm not the only weirdo magnet! That would've freaked me out. Similarly I hate when you go into an empty bathroom and someone comes in and goes into the stall right next to you.

I hope we have a trip the same time one day. I could go on ToT many times in a row and DBF gets tired of it!

Sharon! It sounds like you didn't enjoy F&WF as much this year as in previous years! Do you think that was because it was hot, and it was messing with your appetite? Or do you think the quality of food really was sub-par?

Great trip report!!! You and your Mom seemed to always have a wonderful time and I totally enjoyed all the food photos!! I can't wait for you to start your December pretrip report. I'm not sure when you'll be going, but if you are going to be there during the second week of December, maybe our paths will cross!!

I don't believe you're a weirdo magnet. I prefer to think that you were looking so fetching that day that the gentleman could not resist your charms.

I'm definitely old school! The only time I really use my phone to take pictures is if I'm sending a text (or to use in Evernote).

I had to get the filet in South Africa because of David's recommendation! And it was delish! And the red curry puree isn't supposed to be shaped like a Goldfish cracker. I just got lucky.

Cam, if you want to print those pictures, shoot me a PM and I'll email you the full size files!

Now you have a reason to take another trip. Get planning!

Oh have you seen the commercial where they are using an iPad to take pictures? I can't watch it without getting annoyed. I'll use my iPhone, but anything bigger than that to take pics is ridiculous.
I find it crazy to lug around an iPad in the parks all day! Even a DSLR is easier to manage!

Maybe she had to bring the laptop with her to do work or something. But she still looked dopey doing it, so I'm not letting her completely off the hook!

I'd hate for someone to go into the stall right next to me in an empty bathroom. Of course, for me, that doesn't usually happen, because I don't often have to use public bathrooms.

It was odd, for sure. But I guess being a daily commuter in NYC, it just seemed strange and not creepy.

I think it was only that first day that I was having issues. And even then, I think it may have been me building up stuff in my memory, making it better than it actually was. I would not say I was disappointed at all! It was just as good as ever, don't worry.
