    Day 4 contd...

    After lunch we all boarded the Liberty Square River Boat. By now it was BLAZING hot out and after we boarded it took about 15 minutes before we pushed off which meant jut waiting in the heat. Once we finally got underway, there was a slight breeze which made it better.

    Nice view of BTMR from the boat

    Apparently there is some craze with the kids these days to flip a bottle and make it land upright. This was a constant game the kids were playing, whether we were sitting at a table eating or riding on the boat. But at least it is a game that requires some skill. The kids decided the lower deck offered a great area to play their game under some shade

    Soon we were back at the dock and we headed to HM.

    Next we headed over to Tomorrowland and attempted to ride SM but the wait was ridiculous. Then we saw dark clouds moving in so we decided it was time for afternoon break. I was relieved as I was sweaty, tired and wanted to clean up a bit. On the way out I was telling the kids about infamous "purple wall" and that we ad to get a pic. I asked my nephew to take one of me and here is what he got, smh. He actually just zoomed in and then he took a second pic with no zoom

    Here is the proper one

    He decided he would switch things up and took a pic by the grey wall a little further down the pathway. We sent this to my brother back at home as it drives him nuts when we dont send Disney pics with enough magic in the background. He can thank himself for us teasing him because when my sister first started taking her random Disney pics with no identifiable "Disney" in the background, he would get upset, so now we tease him of course.

    I caught a pic of the incoming storm on the way out to the bus

    IMG_20170613_141754.jpg

    We left just in time. It started raining shortly after getting on the bus. The kids wanted to go with mom and dad to swim at AKL and I joined my brother and sister to head to BC. We relaxed as we watched the Jeff Sessions hearing on the news. We had fun switching back and forth from CNN to Fox to see the completely contrasting commentary on the coverage. My sister fell asleep and my brother and I headed to Epcot since we had a free pass from my sister allowing him to join me on a drunken escapade around WS. I prepped my custom shirt which I had kept in my backpack all day so I had a fresh clean shirt!

    Awwww....poor girl, hiding behind a pillar! How old is she? She looks about my daughter's age, and I can just see my daughter trying to hide from Grandpa, not wanting to ruin the surprise. Glad it all worked out!!

    I'm really jazzed to see your professional opinion about service dogs and I was wondering if I can send you a PM to ask some questions about a very bad experience with a "service dog".

    Loving your TR, btw. I wish I was at WDW right now!!

    I can only imagine!!!!

    Having had to cancel my April trip this year, and not knowing when I'll ever be back made me really really sad. It was hard to visit the forums. Then I realized I just missed reading the Trip Reports so much, I needed to come back!

    The service dog discussion was interesting.. And those pups were precious. :inlove:

    You may have enjoyed that Snow White interaction more than the average Disney goer. :p

    Happy to hear that you had time to get a few important phone calls in at MK. ;)L

    Hah, love this TR so far.

    Aw, so cute. My Hobbit is also an attorney, but his emotional buttons get pushed so hard at Broadway musicals. Both he and I were complete messes at Fun Home and Hamilton.

    I love how your nephew says something about slapping the camera out of their hand.

    I'm so proud of them, and I don't even know them. Getting past fears is tough.

    Heh. Me and my friends were like that with the old Lost Bar during an anime convention that was there at the DLR. "Where's X?" "Did you check the Lost Bar?" "No... oh, there they are!"

    Say, you wouldn't be interested in having a Filipino-American adopted cousin in Minnesota, would you? I love doing silly things and I don't get to do that a lot with my Hobbit around.

    Why am I not surprised at this? ;)

    Day 4 contd....


    Brother and I started out by banking left out of International Gateway and headed towards Mexico Pavilion for our first cold one.

    IMG_20170613_164255.jpg

    We took the obligatory Gran Fiesta Tour while at Mexico. I rarely see the handicap boats so i decided to snap a photo

    IMG_20170613_170526.jpg

    Pretty exciting stuff, lol. We each grabbed another cold one as we headed toward Germany.

    IMG_20170613_164351.jpg


    Upon arriving in Germany I was about to order the grapefruit hefewezien when my brother informed me that it is only 2.5% alcohol content. A polite CM had told him this the other day and he looked it up online and yes, it was 2.5%. I quickly switched my order to the Dunkel. Gotta get the most bang for your buck at $7 a beer! We stopped at Japan for a quick photo with our German beers

    IMG_20170613_173141.jpg

    My brothers phone rings and its my sister and she says she is at WS looking for us! Fearing she was upset and was about to end our escapade, We were SHOCKED when she told us she wanted to join us! My sister is not much of a drinker and I had never strolled around WS with just her and my brother (her husband, actually my brother in-law but I dont like that term). We met her at France pavilion and quickly got a drink in her hand! (wine) and we each ordered a 1774 (Kronenburg)

    IMG_20170613_173206.jpg

    She was hungry so we headed back towards China pavilion as she wanted something from there. She ordered something with chicken, and I ordered a Tsing Tao (beer)

    IMG_20170613_174929.jpg

    We always enjoy asking the CMs at China pavilion how to pronounce Tsing. Some will say "ching" and others say "sing". It has somehow become a tradition to see which pronunciation we get when we order it.

    We got a text from mom and dad that they were on the way to Epcot. So After eating, we refueled at Norway pavilion on some Einstock White Ale and headed to meet them at The Land.


    IMG_20170613_184341.jpg

    Brother and I each ordered a Stella Artois and I grabbed a whoopie pie (i think thats what its called). It was VERY good.

    IMG_20170613_193214.jpg

    Hopped on Soarin after snacking with the "Muppets" as my mom, ( @luvinthemajik ) calls them.

    IMG_20170613_200438.jpg

    Then headed over to TT. As always, I try and design a horrible car.

    IMG_20170613_205401.jpg

    It actually came in 2nd place, lol.
