It's hideous, but I'll find it...lol
More pics from Day 6...
I'm sure the King cakes can old rather quickly lol...they are sweet! Pastels for Easter sound pretty tho!
Soon it was time to hop over to Epcot for our 6:35pm ADR at GG. The dinner menu changed since Kevin and I had eaten there in the summer of 2015, so it was kind of a new experience. The restaurant was very busy, but thankfully we were seated right away. Everyone enjoyed the salad and rolls as well as the turkey and mashed pots. We didn't care for the sausage and peppers, well just the sausage really because it seemed under cooked to both Kevin and I. We showed the inside of a pink sausage to the waiter, and asked if we could have some more but well done. He said it was just the way it was always prepared. Of course what he brought us back we didn't eat because that too was pink and chewy after taking a small test bite. Oh well! I loved the sweet potato fries and didn't have to share because no one else cared for them! Yumm...gimmie! Most of the pics were very unflattering so here's one lol....
While eating, Brook was able to snag us a Soarin' FP for 8:20. Kevin was excited to ride since he had only ridden once before in 2013. This would be the second time for Brook and I getting able to ride the new version. We liked it, but the curving at the top of the screen is a little off putting. We decided to to some browsing and shopping on our way back to FQ. It was so nice out that night that we all decided to just sit and relax with our mugs at one of the outside tables for about an hour before getting into bed.
It is pretty sad when you politely offer up a criticism of how something is cooked and they give you a replacement that does not improve the original condition.
I expect more
Still following and enjoying the TR
Thank you!! I'm not sure how it could have been eaten like that?! But it was the same at breakfast 3 days earlier...the links were white on the outside and pink in the center....blechhhhh
We didn't touch the sausage, I wonder if ours were pink as well.lol
Yikes! I will keep this in mind as GG is on our "must do" list for our next trip. I certainly would not have eaten it looking like that either - no way am I gambling with potential food poisoning! Even if that's they way it's normally cooked, they should have been able to provide you with a "more well done" sampeling as per your request - It's like burgers at restaurants that are usually cooked medium, I always ask for well done and they advise it will take a little longer to make sure I'm okay with the wait, but they always do it.
So, umm, can we get an update?
Hey, I fully admit that I'm guilty of procrastination.. BUT, that's irrelevant to my comment about this specific report
Just having some fun....
I know.. me too
If we keep bumping it back up to the top of page 1 maybe, just maybe Courtney will come back and post more.
Yes, I just went there
Ha ha ha!! Perfect!!
Sorry friends! We had NO internet at work allllll day! It was terrible. Tomorrow, promise!
Day 7...Feb 7th...Kevin's bday
Kevin and Mia woke up early and decided to go to Epcot while Brook and I slept in. She had really been complaining the whole trip that her feet were bothering her which was a first. This was actually the first trip for me that my feet didn't bother me ONE BIT! I felt bad that it was her rather than me. Anyway, we slept in and around noon finally decided to head over to Epcot. Of course by then, Kevin and Mia wanted to swim so as we headed out they were on their way back. I had 2 missions I wasn't going to miss out on at Epcot. My first mission was to find 'Nsync's leave a legacy lol. I'm in a Facebook group for Disney nuts and someone posted a pic and the location, so I just thought it would be something neat to see. They ended up being really close to ours!
I wanted to stop by guest relations and ask if they had the locations of any other celebs, but forgot. Maybe next time! We decided to grab some lunch at Electric Umbrella. It had been years since we've eaten there. I think Brook was in a stroller last time we ventured in. It was pretty crowded and it took us a few mins to find a table. I got the french dip burger and she got.....shocker....chicken nuggets. Brook says Disney has the best chicken nuggets and makes sure to eat her weight in then whenever she can. My burger was good, but really big and I couldn't finish it. We both got the pineapple-coconut slushies, which we couldn't finish either. Great choice going with the dining plan this trip
After lunch it was time for more pin trading and my second mission. Brook found something she liked enough to make a trade and start a new collection. We strolled over to Canada so I could get what I was looking for, which was this guy....
I wanted one for Brook for 2 reasons, her Dad's side is Canadian and she's been there many times to visit. The second reason? If you haven't realized by now....she LOVES PINS LOL!!! I heard thru one of my many Disney forums that if you are from Canada you can just get one. If you're not and want one you have to answer some trivia questions. I've never felt dumber. The CM asked us....''Name 5 Canadian born celebrities.'' Right away Brook yells out ...''Justin Bieber!!'' So I say, ''Alanis Morisette, Mike Myers and Dave Coulier!'' We need one more...we're both like...''Uhhhh....ummm....duhhhh'' for like a minute which was awkward. Finally Brook says...''What about a hockey player?'' Kevin is a huge hockey fan, loves the Flyers so I've been forced to sit thru quite a few games in the last 5.5 years that we've been together. I drew a complete blank! Couldn't think of one players name! Finally I blurt out...'' Sidney Crosby(not a Flyer btw)?'' Yay!! We got all 5!!! The CM gave us our pins and off we went, laughing at how dumb we probably seemed. We walked to the UK pavilion which is my absolute favorite spot in the WS. I love the stores there. We browsed for a birthday gift for my mom who's bday was the previous day(Feb 6th.) Yes that's right...the most important people in my life were all born within days of each other! My sister is Jan 30...Brook is Feb 3rd...My mom is Feb 6th...and Kevin is Feb 7th. His nephew is the 8th and his mom is the 12th. Phew! Needless to say, having all those birthdays 6 weeks after Christmas is insane at our house! Anyway, we ended up not finding anything for my mom, so we headed to France. I'm a HUGE Francophile! My living room is alllll Eiffel tower pics and decor. Did we stop and browse for me? No, there was no time for that! We had to race to the American pavilion for funnel cake for Brook. We got her treat and then she decided she couldn't go on anymore. Her feet were killing her so we walked down to the Friendship boat dock. I couldn't remember if we had ever ridden them, so that was something new for her. It was blazing hot and the boat was packed. I would have rather walked, but I couldn't be a mean mommy and force her trek back around the WS. We left Epcot and headed back to FQ. I had dinner plans and a bday surprise for Kevin
Being born and raised in the Great White North we did not have to answer the trivia question.
I am glad you named 5 and were able to get one!
Me too!! It was fun!
