Just a random photo...
355543
After this we went on the Carousel of Progress ... as much as I love this I was so tired at this point I think I almost fell asleep :joyfull:
355544
355545

Finally it was time for our last FP....to meet Mickey and Minnie! I was excited to see them in their birthday outfits!
355546
355547
They look adorable in their outfits! I still don't understand why its so dark in there though - the pictures are never all that great
355548
We picked up a 4th FP for IASW. I could tell I was fading by this point because my photos are not even centered :oops:

After our ride we headed over to the Tangled area to rest (I suppose the rest portion of the rest rooms :joyfull:)
355555
355556
While we were sitting down there were a ton of runners around us who were stressing out about the half marathon the next day. It was at this point my mom and I were pretty happy we were already done running :p
Anyway, it was time to check in for dinner so we headed over to… Liberty Tree Tavern! While we were training for our race we both came up with this as the place we wanted to eat after our run! It's the little things that get you through training runs sometimes and thinking about where we wanted to eat was one of the things we would talk about :)

355559
We sat at the same table and had the same server as our last trip here :) It was the first time we were offered alcohol but we declined as we were already struggling to stay awake :happy:

Next up: more dinner

Day 2 continued
Salad to start
355560
Some rolls
355561
Instead of getting platters of food we actually each got our own plate of food. It was pretty awesome! It saved us from overeating essentially but it was also just super convenient. I'm assuming this happened because we were a table of two (although we are always a table of 2 here and it has never happened before). Everyone else still got the platters.
Roasted Turkey Breast, Pot Roast, and Oven-roasted Pork with Mashed Potatoes, Green beans, Herb Stuffing:
355562.
The Mac and cheese still came on the side and for once it was actually really good. The gravy was also on the side obviously. My favorite part is always the pot roast and it did not disappoint!
355563
355564
They now have a trio of desserts: 1. the regular ooey gooey toffee cake 2. warm banana cake (with butter pecan ice cream) and 3. apple fritters
355565
All of them were really good!
As usual our dinner was excellent !
After dinner we decided to head out and relax at the WL since we were pretty exhausted.
We got some PP pictures on the way out.

Back at the WL I spotted a Kingdom Strollers truck and tagged them and they put it in their story :hilarious:
355570

My Mom suggested we go the hot tub so help our legs out so we did that. It was a beautiful night out !
Enjoy my beautiful waterproof camera photos
355571
355572
Then we headed back to our room and watched HEA from our balcony!

I kept looking in your race photos to see if we were in your background at all! I didn't spot us though! Glad you had a good race. It was a fun one. We haven't made the leap to the half yet, but we always talk about it!
It was super fun...the half is awesome just because of the MK but overall the 10K was way more park time which was nice !

Day 3 February 24, 2019
We slept in until 7 am which after two days in a row of getting up somewhere around 3 am was glorious !
We had afternoon plans this day so we decided to get some brunch at Trails End. IMO Trails End is super underrated. We were going to eat there at a later date this trip but remembered it was brunch on the weekends so moved it to this day 😋
356122
We took the boat over to Fort Wilderness :)
356123
356124
When we got off the boat at the FW a man jokingly said "you got done touring MK already ?!" :joyfull:
We had some time before our reservation so we wandered around a bit

Day 3 continued
356155
We were seated almost immediately after we checked in :)
Some food plates for you to see
356156
356157
356158
These cookies were amazing - my Mom got a twin one :)
356159
Yum yum yum...our brunch was delicious as ever!
After our meal we headed back over towards the WL
356168
Figured I would take some last photos of River Country while it is still there ☹
356169
356170
So back at the WL we stopped at the DVC desk to ask if we could tour Copper Creek since I bought there. The woman at the desk asked if my Mom was a member and we said no so she signed us up for a tour that was happening right then. My Mom got another gift card out of the deal and she told us we would each get 3 bonus FPs again. This particular tour was in a Cascade Cabin (really wanted to see the rooms 🤷‍♀️) and was a group tour. I genuinely thought this whole thing was odd - sitting through a 45 minute intro tour when I already was a member but whatever.
There was couple on the tour who were clearly just there for the gift card because they scoffed at going to Disney at least once every 3 years (what?) and the guy straight up was saying he never planned on coming back with his family ? It was weird. There was also a Mom and a small boy who were really nice and generally interested. After the tour we got to walk around the cabin.
I took a bunch of photos - my Mom was pleased they are not as close to the water as we thought :)

The cabins are amazing! However so so so many points that I doubt I will ever stay there :) Like 2 nights would be all my points :hilarious:
So we finish looking around and head out to inquire about our FPs. The CM was like - are you already a DVC member (he saw my DVC MB) ?! I said yes and he pretty accusingly said "well you should not have been on this tour did (forgot her name at the DVC desk) know you were one?" "I said yes and explained I asked to see Copper Creek since I recently bought there. He got nicer after this but was confused about what to do. He said something about not getting a gift card (which I knew) and asked someone else and they said I would not get any FPs either but my Mom would (super helpful....). I was pretty mad since we were promised these Fps (had they not said it to me I honestly would not have cared) and I just wasted 45 minutes on an informational tour that I did not even ask to be on. I dropped it though and just thanked them for their time. They promised us transportation to DS after this but I didn't dare ask for it so we headed to the bus stop instead.
I was fuming all the way to DS but my Mom was saying hey at least we got to see the cool cabins and we got a gift card out of it. True...so I finally dropped it.
They had these cool Run Disney banners at DS!

We mostly just walked around. We did some window shopping but did not buy anything. For some reason most of these pictures are of me :hilarious:

356221
356222
We debated about getting something small for lunch there but decided we would just head back to Roaring Fork

Next up: back to the WL

Back at the WL we headed to Roaring Fork to grab some lunch.
We decided to share the Western Nuggets (aka chicken nuggets with BBQ sauce)
356351
They were delicious but we were glad we shared because we could not even finish them :)
My Mom also got this cute campfire cupcake
356352
After lunch we headed down to the pool to relax (like we haven't been doing that all day essentially :joyfull: )
356353
356354
356355
We really loved the Boulder Ridge pool - it was much quieter which was nice!
After our pool break we got ready and headed to Hollywood Studios.
Funny story...I was looking at the app on the bus and what do I see..
356356
We both got those bonus FPs after all! I have no idea how we ended up with them but all that whining I did was for nothing :rolleyes:
This was actually our first experience with the long bus stop walk - we got out of it one way or the other before this :) We stopped for a PP picture when we finally got there.
356357
356358
We headed towards our first FP Aerosmith after this

Yes !!! So nice (totally misread this --- at first I thought you were talking about the dip pool at the cabin - or were you ?)
I was. I thought it was a hot tub...at least that's how it was explained on a vlog I watched recently because of the timers by the post you were standing next to. Or maybe I'm confused....:banghead::banghead::banghead:
