Yup, I don't like to be bunched up with everyone else and in the hot sun

Like all Disney parks, the key is to rope drop. I think someone might have a touring plan but we basically wing it.

Glad there was nothing wrong with the two little girls.
I was so nervous and felt guilty for not watching them. I bet their father didn't let then ride anymore slides by themselves.

I am honestly going to try to finish up this report before it's the 1 year anniversary of the trip.

The plan for tonight was to go to Disney Springs. I wanted to give Pat and Natalie some alone time and told them they should take the boat to DS. Claire and I were also going to go and we ended up going over with them. Once we got to DS, we went our separate ways. Claire and I had our eye on some Deluxe Burgers and thatís where we headed. I really like the inside of the restaurant and thought the burgers were good.




We stopped by Sprinkles and tried out the cupcake machine YUMMY!!




We then wandered around and went window shopping. We also stopped by Sprinkles and tried out the cupcake machine. Yummy! Claire loved Uniglobe although I thought it was too bright in there. It started to rain so we dodged from building to building. Patrick texted me and asked where we were and we met up with them. They had gone to Blaze and loved the pizza. They also did some shopping and I have so excited that Patrick bought Claire a pair of Mickey earrings and this Disney planner book.


We headed back to POR and called it a day.

Just a little side note. Young love came to an end earlier this year and Pat and Natalie broke up right after Thanksgiving break. I actually didn't find out about it until Feb when Patrick texted me the news in the middle of the night. He didn't tell me sooner because he thought I would be upset. Over winter break I, of course, knew that something was wrong because she wasn't over at all but he kept telling me everything was fine. Oh well, what's meant to be will be.

Good meal and times at Deluxe Burger for you and Claire and Patrick and the others at Blaze! Glad your TR has returned! Not always easy as so much of life interferes at times. I have this as well. Just wish I could get off more than two updates a week. One is guaranteed on Sunday and hope for one mid week, but not always. Don't get home until six pm or so and if I have time can write a little bit over a few days and hope post one. That's why it takes me a good year to complete my extensive TRs. Just wish I could complete faster.


Have Vegas in October and not betting on finishing my 2017 trip before.


Sorry to hear about Pat's breakup with Natalie but it's early in life for these things and will find a great girl down the line as he matures and gets into his 20's when more important!

That sounds like a really fun night at DS!! Your dinner looks yummy! Sorry to hear about Pat's breakup. We went through this with Sean before he met Jane. He dated a girl for 5 years that we absolutely loved and thought he was going to marry but it all worked out in the end!! Love his gifts to Claire!!

Deluxe burger looks like a good place to eat. We have a Blaze Pizza here so I don't go there when I'm at Disney.

Thanks for hanging in with the trip report!


Thursday June 29th. HS day

Iím actually surprised I can remember what we did but thank goodness I still have my spreadsheet with my plans. I do know that by this time, Patrick was finally getting in the groove of things and actually having a good time. We did make it to rope drop At Hollywood Studios. As you can see it was pretty crowded.



We did the mad dash with a thousand of our friends over to TSMM.



I was upset with Claire because she doesnít like to be aggressive and was letting everyone in front of her. I let her know this and she got upset with me. Letís just say, I rode the ride by myself. Yes w,e were THAT family. After the ride was over we made amends it was off to our favorite roller coaster. Iím not sure if it had been down before we got there, but it had a bit of a wait and the wait ended up being much longer. When we got to the loading platform we asked to be seated in the front. We are tending to do this more and more since the ride is always smoother in the front cars. After RNR, we headed over to use our 1st FP of the day at ToT. Claire doesnít do this ride, but I think itís mine and Patrickís favorite. Then it was back to TSMM to use our 2nd FP. This time all was good with mother and daughter! We wandered over to TGMR. Iím really really going to miss that ride!


Lunch I believe was at Backlot Express. We really like the food there. We then used our 2rd FP at Star Tours. I sometimes get motion sickness from Star Tours but this time I didnít. After lunch we headed out of the park and back to POR.

We went to the pool for a bit (or at least I did) and then got ready for our dinner at Cape May Cafe. This restaurant has been a must do for every trip. We decided to drive over to the Beach Club and then after dinner, take the boat back to Hollywood studios. After checking in at the podium we didnít have that long to wait. They went to seat us in the side room like they do every time we go, but I wasnít having it and requested not to be seating in there. Of course my kids had a fit because I was embarrassing them. The buffet was yummy as usual and we of course overate.



r


We then started to walk over to Hollywood studios but I think we went the wrong way and then decided just to take the boat. We went to Star Wars Launch Bay. Once again, Patrick didnít think he was going to enjoy it, but being a Star Wars fan he most certainly did!



We walked around and then it was time to get a spot for the fireworks and show before. As we were waiting I got a text from my next door neighbor telling me my dog was wandering around outside and our side door had been opened. She was able to get him back in. I was then very nervous because I thought our 2 cats might have gotten out. My husband was still at work and couldnít leave. I asked her if she could check inside to see if she could see them, but Buddy, our dog, was apparently in watch dog mode. This totally ruined my night, worrying about the cats and I decided that we should just leave and go back to our room. Of course it was for naught. By the time we got back, my husband got home and yes the cats were safe inside. Yes, I have a worrying issue.

Sounds like a great day, with you getting in quite a few attractions! I am going to miss GMR as well.

I know exactly what you mean about worrying...I do the same thing. And of course worrying doesn't help at all, just stresses you out! I'm glad your cats were ok.

What an awesome DHS day!! Your dinner at Cape May Cafť looks wonderful as well!! So sorry about your animals but they are truly like kids and I totally get your worrying about them. I can't decide if your neighbor did a good thing by calling you or not but I am sure that she meant well and it was nice of her to get your dog. Glad all was well in the end.
