Then we checked in for lunch at Liberty Tree Tavern. It was actually our first time eating lunch at LTT!

We started with the Tavern Cheese Dip (Blend of Four Cheeses with Griddled Boston Brown Bread)

The dip was just OK but the bread was so good!
For lunch I ordered Our Tavern Keeper's Favorite (Pot Roast, Mashed Potatoes, and Garden Vegetables)

My Mom got the Turkey Pot Pie (Tender Roasted Turkey, Carrots, Potatoes, Peas, and Puffed Pastry)

Following along! I’m sorry your mom didn’t get to run, but hopefully she is feeling back to normal. I’ve always wanted to be there for the transition too! How cool to go to a Halloween party and then the Christmas party in the same week!

Yes! My next goal is to go to both parties!

Back at the hotel it was pool time!
Oh but first Mousekeeping left us this cute activity book :)

Some views from the slide. The CM up there told me only go pros were allowed. I told him I have brought this camera up every time I have been down the slide :cautious: He said - oh I guess it does have a wrist strap so thats fine ? It was very confusing :joyfull:

Terrible waterproof camera quality so not sure if you can see the squirrel on the rope. He was freaking my Mom out because he would sit right at the top of the slide :joyfull:

We decided to eat dinner at Splitsville since it had been awhile since we last ate there.

My photos are terrible but for dinner we shared the BBQ chicken flatbread and the cone of fries. Yum! Everything was great.

We did not end up buying anything but we did have a great time at DS. After this we headed back to the Yacht Club. The AP discount for next year came out so we spent some time re-booking our room for the Princess Half Weekend. We ended up booking Yacht Club again !
Then we walked over to Epcot

Then we sat down for Epcot forever. It was not until 10 pm which would really be too late for us any other day, but it was daylight savings time the next day :joyfull:. We moved around a bit and eventually ended up in the lower area between France and the UK.
We sat down about 45 minutes before the show so killed some time with Heads Up :)

I did not watch or see anything about Epcot Forever (except some reviews on podcasts etc) so I have no idea these banner things would be flying. They were SO cool.
When we saw the first jet ski go by we thought something bad happened and then these lit up the sky :joyfull:

Then they had fireworks coming out of them which was even cooler

Well, we actually really liked the show! I went in with very low expectations based on reviews, but we both thought it was great! I guess I have a bit more nostalgia towards Epcot than I thought I had :) I especially liked the nods to Walt :) The only thing I did not really love was the finale. I felt like a Tapestry of Nations ending would have been better but overall can't complain !
After this we walked back to our room and off to bed.

The anxiety before my first race last year was crazy. I had never raced before at that point. Hope your mom is feeling much better. Back injuries are nothing to mess around with. :D

For some reason, that squirrel amuses me more than it probably should 🤣

Also, I am a minimalist and don't have a lot of clutter at home, but I am ALL ABOUT THE CHRISTMAS MERCH 🎄

I would say "new photo at the airport tradition" except when we were leaving they changed the wrap to Batuu :hilarious:

We walked down to DME and noticed this new sign (super blurry sorry)
View attachment 424201
We got right on our Magical Express and it left right away!
Woohoo!
View attachment 424202
Plus - we were the first stop! Bonus!
I should mention that while on the bus we found out that no one had power at home (well except for my sister Betta who does not live in Buffalo).
This is what my other sister's street looked like :

We were very lucky to get out
At the Yacht Club we checked in and changed our credit cards around. The Yacht Club has some pretty weird lamps :hilarious:
View attachment 424206
We needed a snack so we stopped at The Market
I got a toffee brownie type thing and my Mom got this cupcake which I think was vanilla

View attachment 424208
Breakfast of champions !
There was nowhere to sit in The Market (at Ale and Compass for the formal name) so we ended up eating in the hall :hilarious:

After this we headed to the Expo bus stop by way of the gorgeous convention center :)
View attachment 424213
We just missed the bus, but another one came within 10 minutes :)

Next up: Expo time!
WHo Hoo Doc. Question? Does your MDE photo Signage look likes it says B Express Pickup Men with a 30 minute wait?

YAY, I was so glad to see your new TR posted!!! So sorry that your mom's back was bothering her enough that you had to cancel your race but it was definitely the smart move. We've really enjoyed our last two meals at LTT after taking a hiatus from there for a few years! I loved seeing your room at the Yacht Club as I haven't stayed there since the year 2000. I do remember the rooms being quite spacious. Can't wait to read more about your trip! :)
