Thanks for following.I'm following along!!
There will be lots about the races. I’m probably putting it off a bit because I’m still quite emotional about the marathon.Following along! Looking forward to hearing about your races
So funny, lost in translation a bit. It’s strange because I Americanise a bit at home, I tend to say stroller, parking lot and diaper. I’m kind of stuck in the middle a bit. And yes, a cruise was wonderful after the parks and especially after all the running.Following along. A cruise and a WDW holiday, a perfect combination. When you said your 20 year old was at uni, I thought you meant Universal, and that made no sense to me. Then I remembered you're from the UK and meant university.
Beautiful pictures of your girls with the characters.Day 2 cont.
We still had a bit of a wait until our Jungle Cruise FP, so we browsed through the Emporium for a while, (I know it’s not very Disney but I always want to call it the Emporium Galorium). The girls had some Christmas money to spend and wanted to get some ideas. I discouraged them from spending saying they should wait a while, they still didn’t know about the cruise and I didn’t want them to regret spending their money too early. Then Jungle Cruise, with an excellent skipper.
By then it was time for our lunch adr at my favourite character meal, Crystal Palace. We checked in, only waited a little while, and were taken to our table. Food was usual buffet food, but character interaction was a lot of fun.

The Riverside Mill has changed so much & it's definitely not for the better. I always loved both the create your own pasta & salads there. Both gone. The flatbreads were great & they're gone too. R got the pizza recently & didn't care for it. At this point I much prefer FQ's food court over Riverside's.So we arrive at Riverside and walk through to the food court. I’d decided to get one of my favourite meals here, the create your own pasta, so head over to that window. This was to be one of my biggest ever Disney food disappointments, they don’t do it anymore , only have premade pasta meals. I’ve been getting this for years, the last time about 18 months ago. When did it go away? None of us were really sure what we wanted to eat now, so ended up just ordering a family pizza. Huge mistake, they’ve changed the pizza as well. The frozen pizza we’d had in our room a few nights ago was much better. I managed a few bites, then just ate a breadstick. The girls ate some of it. It was lucky we’d had such a good lunch at Crystal Palace, so we weren’t super hungry. I was really upset by this point, Riverside had always been our resort of choice before becoming DVC members and it had always felt so welcoming. It just felt like it wasn’t the same any more.
Gotta love Bob!! I love his show also!! I'm glad it hasn't changed either--unlike the food court!Bob’s show was the usual loud, fun nonsense. And his hair still looks good . I’m so glad we decided to go, it completely turned the mood of the evening around for us. I first remember seeing it almost 15 years ago and it’s hardly changed, and I don’t want it to.
