What do you mean there's no record of her AP?! We've been using it since February!

    I'm glad you liked River Journey so much! We also enjoyed our meal at the "Canteen".

    Looking forward to more.

    Friday, August 18th cont...

    We took quick showers and grabbed an Uber to the GF for our Tea ressie! There was a minimal wait so of course Brook wanted to trade pins. After about 10 mins I received a text alerting us that our table was ready. But first, a quick pre-tea selfie..

    We both chose different teas to drink. I chose to get us both the Cheshire and Bedfordshire teas. The Bedfordshire is the cheapest they offer at $35 pp and it includes finger sandwiches, scones, pastries, and a pot of tea. I opted for the next one up the line($50 pp) because that offering came with cheese and Brook loves fancy cheeses! I chose to have the Fig & Rose White Tea which was delicious, and Brook opted to their most popular tea, Enchanted Forest.

    Tea was a success! I was stuffed when we left, but we both agreed that there would really be no reason to return. I was really glad we tried it tho and would recommend it! After tea I got changed and we headed upstairs to Basin and the gift shop.

    Surprisingly we left empty handed and then took the monorail over to the MK.

    Friday, August 18th cont...(the never ending day lol)

    Okkkk...so we hopped the monorail from the GF to the MK. Brook snagged us a Space Mtn. FP, so that's where we headed. But first...a magic shot! I'm not really a fan of memory maker, I'm just not a picture person. Since it's included in our AP's I figured me might as well try and get some use out of it, plus I do really like all the diff magic shots and wanted to get some. I forced Brook to stop on Main Street for a pic.

    I love the look on her face..pure joy! After our forced family photo we headed towards Tomorrowland.

    The 3 of us had fun on Space( me, brook and the hook) hahahaha!!

    We had a busy night at the MK. After space we went over to CoP. It was a must-do for us since we skipped it in Feb. We waited 5 mins and then enjoyed our fave show! Brook was able to snag us a 5th FP for Pooh, and then a 6th FP for the teacups. The 7th FP she got us REALLY EXCITED HER!! She was SHOCKED that she found us a FP for PETER PAN!! We both love PP ...it's so cute! While in line for PP she got us an 8th FP for her new fave ride, the HM. We wandered around the gift shop first and then made our way onto the ride. She was able to get us a 9th FP for Pirates, but after HM we decided that we were tired and called it a night, so we cancelled it and headed back to bed

    Your TR with the pictures of you and your daughter together is getting me excited for our weekend in two weeks - we'll be in DLP for the half marathon weekend and it is rare that my DD and I are at a Disney park alone, but for this time we'll be there a day before our friends - and I am looking forward to it being just the two of us for the day.

    Saturday, Aug 19th

    This day we headed for HS in the morning. We headed right for our first FP of the day which was expiring soon. After our ride on Rock n Roller Coaster I needed something to eat. I hadn't been feeling too well, but my complaint was a weird one! I kept having what felt like HORRIBLE hunger pains for a few days. The problem was, was that they never went away even after eating! They were keeping me up at night and just generally putting a damper on things for me. This particular morning they were BAD. We stopped at Starbucks for some breakfast. I got a fruit smoothie and some fruit and Brook opted for a breakfast sammich and some sort of iced coffee. We ate standing at one of the tables outside and then headed towards our next FP, ToT. We're not show people, nor are we crazy about Star Tours, so we headed back to CBR after ToT and decided to go to Blizzard Beach for the rest of the afternoon. Here's where things got crazy!...

    We arrived at BB and strolled on up to the entrance and when Brook scanned her MB Mickey turned blue. I tried mine and had no luck as well. We were told to head over to the ticket window and see what was going on. There was no line an Teri called us up. I explained that we went to enter the park and were both turned away, which made no sense becasue we BOTH had Platinum Plus AP's. She asked for Brook's MB and then asked me if I had bought her a ticket. I said yes and explained that we upgraded to AP's just 6 months before on our last trip. I told her we had just come from HS a few hrs ago and not only that, but we had been here for a few days park hopping and had no issues. She went back to typing and turned her screen around for me to look at and she explained that when she scanned her MB there was no info at all coming up. She tried by Brook's full name and again...nothing! She asked me again if we had tickets and I pulled out my phone and showed her all our ADR's...room reservation and memory makers pix lol. She scanned my MB and said that I only had whatever pass doesn't include the water parks. She was stumped so she called over Jillian who was training to be a manager. After a few mins Jillian said she had never seen anything like this and called over Mitchell who was wearing what the VIP guides wear( those plaid vests). By this time an hour had gone by and we were SWELTERING!! It was sooooo freakin hot and the ticket window was around the side of the building, not in the front under the umbrellas. Teri felt bad and gave us some temporary tattoos lol...uhhh thanks! So Mitchell comes back and says there must have been some sort of glitch and to fix it they were going to have to re-sell me an AP for Brook. I was all prepared to just pay for us to get in, even tho I was annoyed that the guy who originally sold us the passes gave us the wrong ones. I guess it's my fault for not checking somehow, but ya live and learn. So...Mitchell finally gets us all set up and tells me he is comping BOTH of our entries to BB AND giving us 3 each anytime FPs for our last 2 days because the next day was our tour day and we wouldn't need any FP's that day;) The whole thing took almost 2 hrs!!! I thank them all profusely and off we went! Phew!

    We stopped to get some towels and the lady there asked to see our room key because towels are free for guests staying on prop. I show her my magic band and she says, ''No, I need to see you room key, like how you open your door.'' I'm stumped and say....''Uhhh this is the key...'' Then she says she needs to see my room reservation number! So I dig out my phone and pull up MDE and show her my ressie...FINALLY, we are off to explore the park which we have been at for over 2 hours now and have done absolutely NOTHING!! We grabbed a locker and then needed some lunch before hitting the slopes, slides or whatever they're called....

    Good to hear that you got figured out. Sorry you had to swelter for a couple of hours. Glad to hear that they set you up with anytime FP, because I couldn't imagine having all my stuff set up and then loosing it and not being able to enjoy the rides its takes months to get FP for.

    2 hour wait to get into a water park and then you have to justify taking a towel??

    So much for the laid back, go with the flow type vacay for Courtney and Brook

    I again remind you of my original suggestion for the theme of this trip was:

    "Courtney and Brook do Disney - Girls gone wild - WDW style"

    I know, maybe next time.;)

    Blizzard Beach Con't...

    We decided to hit up Lottawatta Lodge(I just got the meaning of it while typing lol) for lunch. Since we had spent 43 hrs at the front gate I was STARVING, but we had an ADR at Brook's Fave place, LTT in just a few hours. We decided to share a pepperoni flatbread, fries and a frozen hot choc. The lodge was VERY busy and we wasted ANOTHER hour ordering, waiting for the food and then finally eating it! We did however get a free frozen blue rasp lemonade when the CM messed up our drinks. It was really good, but the frozen hot choc was AMAZING! Sooo yummy! Brook didn't care for the fries, (they were steak fries) and I didn't really care for the flatbread...it was limp and greasy lol. But we sure ate it all lol...like I said ...we were STARVING!

    After lunch we hit up the lazy river, which is of course the best part of any water park ;) We didn't stay too long, and hopped out at the next entry/exit point. We wanted to explore the park since it was Brook's first time, and my first time since I was 13 in 1995. Nothing looked familiar to me, so it was my first time too lol. We saw the ski left and had to try it out. Very neat, but of course we got stuck for 5-7 mins in the blazing sun...yuck! It was a fun ride tho. Next we rode Teamboat Springs and the dad of the family we were riding with kept trying to hook Brook up with his son...we just politely smiled, nodded and hoped for him to shut up. He did thankfully...and we had a good time the rest of the way down. Afterwards, Brook had her eye on Summit Plummit, but the wait time was wayyyy too long at 45 mins, so we did the Tobaggan Rcaers instead. They were lots of fun!! I was just glad I didn't come in last...Brook was a close second place. Next we rode a little kiddie slide and then checked out the wave pool. We agreed that TL's is MUCH BETTER AND BIGGER! After getting tossed around in the pool we went to the lazy river again, but this time we floated around for an hour. It was heaven! I had to drag Brook out, but we needed to head back and get ready for dinner and our night at the MK.

    Our Uber driver was awesome, very nice guy. He was a wounded vet in his 30's and we were one of his first customers. He asked us what we looked for in a good uber driver, like what makes me give 5 stars. It was a pleasant ride.
