I was fuming at Ross' behavior. I didn’t want us to miss our FP time for SDD, and I didn’t want to lose my cool in front of the girls, but my patience was wearing thin. He was purposely walking so slow just to annoy me – by the time we reached the security checkpoint, all I wanted to do was give him a good swift kick right in his Alien Swirling Saucer!
This has to be the best use of the acronym I've seen! I think I might have to steal this if I ever need to reference a Saucer in front of the kiddos

So should I try to ask forgiveness from all of you? I promise I have a good reason for my disappearance, which I promise to explain, if I dare to start a PTR one of these days… However, if any of you still want to tag along, I promise the conclusion to come in a few days.

The food at ABC was pretty good and Julia and I decided to share this time, so we weren’t so stuffed when we left.

Star Tours was next followed by a rematch on TSMM.

Ross and Hope had already seen Frozen, but agreed to go again so Julia and I could see it. It was a great show – and look… it’s Ben! Yay!!

Ross would have liked it – if he wasn’t sleeping.

Julia asked to see the Muppets so we went there next. Not my favorite – I could skip it and not care. Ross was happy to go because he was able to finish his nap.

I was so excited to see what I thought would be the entrance for Star Wars Land.

I wanted to get closer and take a picture, but my family was walking away. I figured I would get a chance to get a picture next year since it would not open until well after our September 19 trip. (Dramatic Irony)

We had a FP for the Aliens, but since the line for TSMM was so short, we went for another spin.

As we exited TSMM, Ross did not get Julia’s and my excitement to get a picture by the popsicle wall.

Then it was off to catch our flying saucer!

As we waited to board our Alien spacecraft, a woman who was riding decided she did not want to get off. There was a little commotion, but whatever happened, the ride had to be reset. Since we were in the area, which was next to board, they tried moving us. Somehow Ross and Julia got separated from me and Hope. I have no idea what happed, but eventually we were back together again and getting ready to board.

We joined the masses to exit. We were all a bit hungry and no one really felt like eating at Pop, so we found a bus to DS.

We shared chicken from Chicken Guy and pizza from Blaze – it was all good.

After, we walked around DS a little bit. Hope wanted to find something to buy.

She settled on a Rubik’s Cube. I was hesitant to buy it because I didn’t know if she really understood the idea behind it. But it was her money, so she made her purchase.

We all headed for the busses. Tomorrow would be our last full day.

I really like the series of black and white pictures of you and Julia.

and your reference of where to kick Ross is 😂

I sadly was not too impressed with the photographers this trip, but this young lady was fantastic! I love these pics so much!

Are those items at Epcot snack credits?

It's funny, when Julia got the bubble tea from the regular snack stand in China, it was not a snack credit, we paid OOP. But when she got the EXACT drink from the F&W kiosk, it was a snack credit.
