Looks like a fun show and how cute that J got up and danced! :) I have no will power when it comes to sweets at WDW either! :)
It really is a fun show. We always make it a point to see it while we are there. J has seen his show quite a few times so he knew what was coming & wanted to dance!!

I was surprised I was able to refrain from the cupcake as long as I did. Disney has some of the best cupcakes--it's all about the icing!!

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 7TH

I headed out a little after 7 for my last walk of the trip.

This guy was just hanging out. It was so cute!!
355501

He really didn't seem phased when that CM pulled in. Probably used to it.
355502

I think this picture is post card worthy!!
355503

This one's not too shabby either!!
355504

I finished up my walk & headed back to the room to shower and pack.
355505

I know I mentioned earlier that I always throw out my loofah at the end of the trip. But, there was no way I was leaving the $10 sea sponge that I only used twice behind. I squeezed and squeezed that thing until I got every last drop of water out of it so I could pack it. I really don't know what my plans for it are because it didn't work nowhere near as well as a loofah & frankly I don't like it. Maybe I'll give it to my dad to wash the car with? :hilarious:
355506

While packing up I watched the must do's for the last time. On a side note, I always get bummed when, for example, I've already been to AK for the trip. Even though I still may have 5 days left in my stay I'm sad when I see the must do's for a park that I'm not going back to. Am I strange?? I'm hoping there are at least a few of you out there that feel the way I do.
355507

I bid my room farewell, checked my luggage in & headed to The Riverside Mill to meet E & J who were there having breakfast.

J was enjoying his Mickey waffle!!

It IS all about the icing ... something they don’t do well in Europe ☹
It's not just the frosting they don't do well in Europe. They aren't good at cupcakes, brownies, cheesecake, cinnamon rolls...I have to make everything myself because they just don't make the good stuff here. Pastries are fine here, but anything cake-y is dense and dry.

Interestingly I am not a fan of wdw cupcakes because of the frosting. It's just a bit too much, and I have a really sweet tooth. I prefer the British fairy cakes with glace icing.

Now these sound super sweet to me!!
I could read the Email ------- vet appt, and Marty called wants C------, and School meeting 10/20/11 -------- (I thought it says 20, not 22. I was close.)
Am I the only one who can't make this out?? I guess I still can't see!!

That's a bummer😢

Ha ha that's true, maybe it's the ratio of frosting to cake over there. My favourite desert in wdw are cinnamon buns especially gastons and if course the famous pofq beinets 😍

It's ok for me....I can make my own and then they are good. I feel bad for all the poor deprived people who don't know what a good brownie is, or what a cupcake with frosting SHOULD taste like.

The beignets are one of my favorites also!!

Well, at least they don't know what they're missing!!
I'm not a fan of ice cream either. The coldness kills my sensitive teeth. My only ice cream exception at Disney is when it's melting on top of the 'Ohana bread pudding. Yum!!!
I'm in total agreement with you!!

We had about an hour before the TE was due to pick us up. E wanted to walk to FQ to check out the gift shop there.

I commented on how cute these cups were but how impractical they are. How would you drink out of them?

One last stroll through Riverside.
356037

We hung out in The River Roost for a bit. E was in Fulton's & J asked if we could do some selfies. BTW--I was so over not being able to see that I ended up wearing my glasses that day.

We made our way outside & enjoyed our last few minutes of sunshine. We don't get much in the way of sunshine in our neck of the woods!!
356416

356417

I told J to smile & this was what I got.
356418

Now he was laughing at me b/c he kept turning his head every time I went to take a picture.
356419

356420

The dreaded moment had arrived.
356421

356422

Ha--he had his mother's phone this time!!
356423

We made a stop at Fort Wilderness before we headed to the airport.

I just realized that writing this part of the TR is almost as bad as the end of the trip itself is.

356425

356426

J wanted to get his picture taken with Goofy.
356428

I wanted to go in the Universal Store to get some candy for my niece.
356427

356429

I got her jelly beans this time.
356430

And J needed another car.
356431

E got pizza while I went next door and got a hoagie at Jersey Mike's Subs.
356432

J had buttered noodles.
356433

We got Starbucks and headed to the gate. This gentleman thought his laptop was so important that it needed it's own seat.:rolleyes:

With no candy to entertain him J read the safety instructions.
356437

356438

I was excited that one of my favorite shows was on!!
356440

Towards the end of the flight there was a ton of turbulence. It was raining in Pittsburgh--surprise, surprise....that's all it does here.
356441

J said he didn't feel well and thought he was going to throw up. E & I thought that the turbulence had got to him. He kept saying the whole way home that he was sick but he ended up being fine.
356442

We landed at 4:30 so we were driving home during rush hour. Because of that I knew it would take us a bit longer than normal but never did I expect almost 1 hour & 45 minutes!! I guess we can blame it on the rain......
356443

356444

By the time I got home it was a monsoon. I didn't even want to take my suitcase out of the car it was raining so hard!!
I took these to show how hard it was raining but they really don't do it justice.
