Well I think you got sad just need to work on that thumb
You should see the eye roll 🙄 from Andi! :rotfl:
Nope still didn't get the mem
Follow directions I cannot!:rolleyes1
Oh Landry's card how do I love thee???? It really is awesome to be able to walk in there and get seated right away. Its always worked out so well for us. And what better to have as our last Disney taste then these delicious wontons!
I love this card! We don’t have any Landry’s restaurants around here and this card is still so worth it for me! I just bought more gift cards. I got $100.00 worth for 85.00, great deal!
We love the fried wonton dessert, yum!
YES!!!! I get it free from work but anyone traveling with me on the same reservation gets it too. But a few times I've made Jason's reservation separate from mine and Casey's and he has not been a happ
I can’t imagine traveling at all right now but when we do, I am so glad we have TSA precheck!
Another great report Caroline!!! Love spending Disney time with you and Andi. You 2 give me all the mother/daughter goals
Thank you so much! I love sharing Disney with you! Hold on tight to young Casey, she will soon be young adult Casey! 🥰

A really nice last day in the parks! I'm always happier when we get to do a park on departure day, feels like the trip is extended just a little more :goodvibes And your Y&Y lunch is making me miss AK! We were planning to eat there in June and while our 2nd June trip hasn't been cancelled yet I feel it's just a matter of days. So we'll have to go in July! LOVE the wontons!
I do love to say farewell to the parks! We tried to hit MK each departure day and I was so happy to hit both MK/AK this time.
I really miss the parks right now and the Disney bubble! If we are in the bubble we can’t get stupid Coronavirus right?

Douglas is absolutely precious! 🥰
I feel your pain about wanting to go back to WDW. I could just go to DS and resort hop to get my fix at this point, but I do want to see how everything plays out before going anywhere out of town.
Thank you! Little Douglas is such a sweetheart!
I really miss the whole Disney bubble, I want back in the bubble!
I haven’t changed anything yet for August, time will tell.

    What a great last day. That dessert looks sooooo good. I’ll have to add it to the list for when the parks reopen and I can go back.

    Thanks for sharing your trip! I will be keeping and eye out to see if your next trips (hopefully) happen without a hitch!
    Thanks! It was a really fun last day. We had enough time to enjoy many sights and sounds before departure.
    Stay tuned for our possible trips! Love to plan.

    Great TR Caroline. I think it's especially sad now when they come to an end since no one knows what our Disney future brings. I think it's a great sign that DS is starting to open this week! Praying our end of July trip works out!!! Although, don't know how thrilled I will be to wear a mask in the parks in the Florida heat...
    Thanks Jenny! I agree, it’s hard to end a TR without a concrete plan to return! I have to wear a mask everyday I work and I just don’t want to do it on vacation.
    I watched Tim Trackers DS video yesterday not sure I like all the restrictions. Go away Coronavirus!!

    Sounds like a great last day in Disney in my two favorite parks!

    I bought a bunch of Landry's gift cards too when they were offering the bonus and Mike just keeps asking where all the gift cards are coming from :rotfl:
    Thank you Courtney! MK and AK are my favorite parks!
    I bought more cards recently on another deal so I continue to be rich with Landry money 💰

    Caroline, your trip reports are always fun to read. And you always make Disney very appealing again......lol......

    Will keep my fingers crossed for you August happens. I`m still being completely positive while being realistic at the same time.....you should see the thoughts my brain has at times!!!! Hope you don`t have to postpone again.

    Oh my goodness, there`s something on Netflix I haven`t watched???????? :rotfl: No, haven`t seen that one. It sounds like one we`d enjoy though. Currently watching Good Girls.....it`s funny with a slice of black humour......a lot of black humour! But, very light hearted and easy to watch.....it is one of those, oh we`ll just watch another episode and then you see it`s 1am.....oops.

    Will have a look at it. And will keep watching for updates from you.....:wave2:
    Thanks Carole! I hope you like The Last Kingdom if you check it out!
    The main character is very pleasing to look at, haha 😂 The Story is very good! I need to check out Good Girls. I hate commercials so streaming is the way to go!!

    The eternal conundrum. Be a good person/DISer and tell them... or lie and keep the line shorter
    This is so true. A few times I have been helpful and given advice, some people are so thankful and others look at you like whatever....
    I swear some people are clueless in this thing we call life :rolleyes1

    I just read your TR and your time there sounded so lovely!!! It made me miss Disney even more than I already do!
    My fiancé and I stayed at CSR the same time as you! It was our first time there and we absolutely loved it.
    I enjoyed seeing all the veg options for meals and snacks, I am a fellow veggie and sometimes forget about a lot of good snacks especially in WS because there are so many. I tend to get the same things every time!
    I hope everything works out for your August trip, we had to move our May trip to the end of September, so I’m crossing my fingers and toes that everything works out and everyone gets to enjoy the magic again soon.

    I just wanted to pop in and say how wonderful reading your trip was! I will definitely follow along next time!😀
    :thanks: I’m so glad you joined in!
    I was always worried about staying at CSR since it is so big but it is one of my favorite moderate resorts now! Did you stay in the tower? I enjoyed both areas!
    Andi and I are learning so much about the vegetarian options at WDW. We have also found out most restaurants will make most dishes vegetarian if you ask!
    I sure hope our end of summer trip works out, if not we are going to try for Thanksgiving time or shortly after that. Andi’s 21st birthday is Thanksgiving this year and she wants to have her first “legal” drink in WS!

    I will say that if I see someone struggling, or asking for help... I'll help.
    But I also love... One time (in the old paper FP days), we went to ride Buzz. Got a FP and walked past the hour long line and rode. Hey! That was fun! Let's do it again! So we got 4 more FPs and as we walked past the same people, still waiting in line, I heard one little boy ask his dad "Why do they get to go and we don't?" and the Dad replied in a loud voice "That's for the people with a lot of money." I think he was trying to make me feel bad, but all it did was make me smile.

    We use to have some great paper FP strategies. I have to say I miss that! You all were VIP Galactic heroes :hyper: ::yes:: Score or not!

    I was worried too when we stayed there, but we got casitas building 3 and it was perfect! I took some early morning strolls around with my coffee to explore while my fiancé slept and definitely plan on staying there again someday! (In the tower next time!!)
    I didn’t know about asking to make things vegetarian! I always look at menus before and pick from what they offer, next time I’m going to try some new stuff. I’m hoping F&W will be going on this year!
    I hope she gets to have her magical birthday sippin’ around WS!!:sunny:

    Thanks again for a great read Caroline! I hope everything is working out okay for Andi at UWEC.
    After battling this virus since the end of February, I am exhausted and can't wait for our vacation in November!
    Take care of yourself! :wave2:

    You will see a theme with our ride photos, however, I didn’t get the memo, 🤣 We were to look sad with thumbs down because it was the last day! :confused3

    :rotfl2:


    You're nailing the pics this day! :rotfl:


    There was a huge family next to us. They were talking about their trip and how they don’t feel the need to come back to WDW, what? Blasphemy, I say!!
    What?? Clearly, they didn't do it right!


    We paid and headed out to Dinosaur, our favorite ride, haha!:love::thumbsup2

    This is the best picture! Your face! And the kid in the front row! :rotfl2::rotfl2::rotfl2:


    Our town literally looked liked the North Pole yuck! So. much. snow. We had got another 20 inches of snow while we were gone!
    Oh lord, no! And yet, I was just telling Mike…I would take any snowstorm over this crappy pandemic!

    Douglas is adorable!

    It was much busier than DAH where we danced with our arms wide open in the stretching room and didn’t touch anyone.
    That sounds like heaven! :cloud9: I can't remember the last time I was in the stretching room without feeling the breath of a stranger on my neck :rolleyes:

    There was a huge family next to us. They were talking about their trip and how they don’t feel the need to come back to WDW, what? Blasphemy, I say!!
    :scared1: I don't even have a reference point for that kind of thought process :confused3:laughing: But that's okay. Stay home, huge family, and let the rest of us have Disney to ourselves ;)

    When we arrived, Chick-fil-A was right next to our gate and we had to have this.
    At least a small silver lining to the trip being over. Love Chick-fil-A and there aren't any around where I live :sad2:

    Thank you so much for joining in on this report, it means so much!!
    Thank you so much for sharing!!! I love your TRs so much, Caroline :goodvibes Anxiously awaiting your plans for the next trip :thumbsup2 (and I'm sure you are, too!)

    Last but not least a Douglas fix!! Sweetie Pie!

    I was up and at it by 6am, showered and finished packing. I ate the rest of my carrot cake cookie this morning. We said goodbye to our room and went to airline check in. We got our boarding passes and checked our luggage. We left the carry on with bell service and headed out to the bus area for MK.
    The Most Horrible Process. :( Yuck.
    :lmao:
    FoP was having issues and the wait time for stand by was 300 minutes, yikes.
    :scared1: And the FP line didn't sound a whole lot better!

    Our waiter was very nice and efficient! There was a huge family next to us. They were talking about their trip and how they don’t feel the need to come back to WDW, what? Blasphemy, I say!!
    Just.... how? So many people turn into haters because they just are so clueless about HOW to do a Disney vacation and what to reasonably expect. Sad.

    We headed out of the park for the last time this trip. 😿 We got a bus quickly and headed back to Destino. We picked up our carry ons, chilled for a little while, and went to ME pickup at 3:15.:sad:
    Such a sad walk of shame. :( All trip's must come to an end, but it's never easy to see it happen.

    I finally just got all caught up!! Sounds like you had a great rest of the trip (that Deconstructed Strawberry Cheesecake was my fav dessert during our last visit). I'm crossing my fingers that you guys will be able to go again soon ::yes:: !
