How fun that you got to get a pic with Kurt Russel!

Tiki mugs are cute and a flaming drink to boot!

Sorry that your friend got sick from the food. I remember having the piggy wings at Epcot F&W and thought they were yummy.

At one point Kurt gave time for a photo op, and everyone lined up for this.
Ah, so you've met up enough that you're on a first-name basis now. :rotfl2:

Here is Fran with our mugs and our Pu Pu platter.
Is it wrong that I still giggle every time at "pupu platter"?

We met up around noon, and I immediately wanted to ride the Incredicoaster.
Can't blame you there.

I was also glad that I didn't ride it until this day because we went to see the movie earlier this week. The ride made a lot more sense if you've seen the sequel.
Good to know! And I'm glad that I can ride it.

Then we went over to Guardians to ride that one.
Shocked! Shocked, I tell you!

We started by riding the Incredicoaster.
Hmm. Looks like we're running out of ideas for the ride photos.

The Lamplight Lounge opened in June so it was only a month old. We were not sure how we felt about the menu (at least Fran and I felt that way), it turned out that unless they do a major rehab of the menu, we may not be going back.
Uh oh. That's not good.

These were the lobster nachos. There was something wrong with them and Jenny ended up getting sick from them. She had them removed from the bill. I was not impressed with the nachos.
Ew. So we're off to a terrible start.

These were the Potato Skins, and they were just weird.
Those don't look like any potato skins I've ever seen in my life.

I don't like the new red head.
:sad1:

You've only seen me at some of my more coherent moments. Talk to me after I've moved three carloads of crap from the garages! :laughing:
:rolleyes1

I think they are representing hundreds. Seems to me most of that case was just paper.
I would imagine so. Otherwise someone's gonna borrow that.

Pretty much. Unless you want to display it as art. :lmao:
Then it's valuable again.

Except they are no longer valid.
Oh, right. Nevermind then.

Mmmmmm onion rings....I would say I want some, but I just had some a couple nights ago.
Me too! Good ones too.

    Here was our view for the night.
    Nice!

    We were among the first to arrive, so it was rather peaceful until everyone got there, then it was totally rockin’
    :laughing: I like how you say that. Not "It got crowded" or "There were too many people" or "It was too loud" or any other way one could complain. I like how you embraced it and had fun!

    At one point Kurt gave time for a photo op, and everyone lined up for this.
    I bet! I would too!
    And dang! He still looks great!

    It was a fun evening and we got to keep the souvenir glasses too!
    Nice little score there. :)

    My Tiki mug shelf is full now so I'm going to need to move the collection to another cabinet.
    I can see it now... in a few years...
    "My Tiki mug cabinet is full now so I'm going to need to move the collection to another room."


    I really like those mugs. :thumbsup2

    At first glance, I thought the burger was in the drink. like one of those over-the-top bloody Mary drinks.

    Nice capture. :)

    I waited in line and was two trains away from riding in the front car when it broke down. It was good that I was waiting for the front car, cause if I had been in a middle car I would have likely been on of the folks stranded on the ride!
    Close one! That would not have been good.
    Then again... it would make for a good story... after.

    I was also glad that I didn't ride it until this day because we went to see the movie earlier this week. The ride made a lot more sense if you've seen the sequel.
    Hmmm... Guess I'll have to see it before I come visit you again.
    How was the ride itself? Any different from before?

    This is the warm chocolate chip Cookie which was amazing!!!!
    Man, that looks great!

    Peace out!

    That sundae looks pretty good. No wonder he's smiling! :)

    :laughing: Both Incredicoaster photos have you holding your glasses.

    What are you doing, Alison?

    The Lamplight Lounge opened in June so it was only a month old. We were not sure how we felt about the menu (at least Fran and I felt that way), it turned out that unless they do a major rehab of the menu, we may not be going back.
    uh oh

    This is my drink which is an Open Ocean with a Splash a Frozen Cocktail made with Bacardi Raspberry Rum, Bols Blue Curaçao, Liquid Alchemist Orgeat (Almond), Agave Nectar, and fresh Lime Juice
    As you know, I'm not a fan of rum, but... otherwise that sounds amazing.

    These were the lobster nachos. There was something wrong with them and Jenny ended up getting sick from them. She had them removed from the bill. I was not impressed with the nachos.
    Oh, that's too bad. Hopefully she was okay?

    These were the Potato Skins, and they were just weird.
    They look weird too.

    I don't like the new red head.
    You mentioned that. Not pretty anymore.

    Hey Alison,

    Trying to dig my way out of the massive hole I'm in but I am caught up here now. :)

    The dinner at the Lamp Lighter sounded gross. So sorry that you didn't care for it and am even sadder than it made Jenny sick! Awful!

    But the rest of the day looked super fun and you can never go wrong with drinks in Tikis!! I read there's a new hatbox one, and I'd LOVE to get my hands on one!!!! Might even be worth a trip down. ;)

    I had no idea you were continuing posting on this TR! I have missed a few updates.

    We decided to visit the Museum of Money on this day, first cause it sounded interesting and secondly cause it was free!
    That does sound interesting.

    Haha so funny!

    As many people said, the Cheesy corn was like crack! We ate every last little bit of that.

    OMG I love corn and cheese. If you ever find a korean BBQ place near you called Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong, they have a little moat around their bbq grill and they put like an egg scramble in one section, and corn and cheese in another. Nice little side dish to the korean meats. But this cheesy corn you had looks amazing.

    At one point Kurt gave time for a photo op, and everyone lined up for this.

    Oh that is so cool! I'll have to check out Gogi Winery at some point!

    This looks delicious.

    I love all these tiki mugs! You guys have all the cool tiki mugs!

    These were the lobster nachos. There was something wrong with them and Jenny ended up getting sick from them. She had them removed from the bill. I was not impressed with the nachos.

    Is this that new place on Pixar Pier? Did the lobster nachos always look like that? We've never had them before but we've heard all about them. They honestly don't look that good form the picture above.

    I was so behind, I’m sorry.

    All those museums in KC were very cool. Loved the Arabia one. So sad that muel got left behind when it didn’t have to be.

    You find the coolest car museums. I never even think to look for stuff like that.

    The fish tiki mugs are awesome.

    Meeting Kurt Russell again? Bestill my heart! :love:

    At one point Kurt gave time for a photo op, and everyone lined up for this.

    This is a great pic, I love both of your expressions!
    Another great hat Fran! Nice pic also

    Nothing like some take home glasses to end the visit :)
    I'm not showing Dorian these pics as he will want these guys!
    Yummm that looks so good!
    Pretty fun!

    Lamplight Lounge was VERY underwhelming and the lobster was bad! I felt so sorry that Jenny was so sick from them!
    Yeah, and I have no desire to go back unless they do a major overhaul of their menu.

    I don't remember what Jenny and I did either! 17 more days until I see you guys again!
    And what's so funny is that you have seen us three times since you posted that. I'm really behind on this thread!

    How fun that you got to get a pic with Kurt Russel!
    Thanks!

    Tiki mugs are cute and a flaming drink to boot!
    I love a good flaming drink!

    Sorry that your friend got sick from the food. I remember having the piggy wings at Epcot F&W and thought they were yummy.
    Yeah, those were really the only redeeming things from that restaurant.

    Ah, so you've met up enough that you're on a first-name basis now. :rotfl2:
    Yeah, I just wish he knew my name! :laughing:

    Is it wrong that I still giggle every time at "pupu platter"?
    Well you do have the same sense of humor as Dave or Scotty! :laughing:

    Can't blame you there.
    Thrill rides first!

    Good to know! And I'm glad that I can ride it.
    Yeah, much better to understand when you've seen the 2nd movie.

    Shocked! Shocked, I tell you!
    And you'll be shocked to learn that this weekend the only ride that we rode was Guardians, twice. :laughing:

    Hmm. Looks like we're running out of ideas for the ride photos.
    Yeah, actually I am, and I'm definitely not as creative as @pkondz

    Uh oh. That's not good.
    Yeah, evidently she was ill during the night.

    Ew. So we're off to a terrible start.
    Pretty much, we haven't been back.

    Those don't look like any potato skins I've ever seen in my life.
    I know, they were totally weird and not tasty.

    Well not really.

    Oh, right. Nevermind then.
    See what I mean.

    Me too! Good ones too.
    Well now it's been a while since I've had onion rings or even good ones!

    :laughing: I like how you say that. Not "It got crowded" or "There were too many people" or "It was too loud" or any other way one could complain. I like how you embraced it and had fun!
    Well there was kind of plenty of room, so I just embraced it.

    I bet! I would too!
    And dang! He still looks great!
    I know, doesn't he? He looks just as good as he did in Guardians 2 without the makeup.

    Nice little score there. :)
    Well for the price of being in the wine club, the party and complimentary wine glass are a drop in the bucket. But the wine that we get each year is nice.

    I can see it now... in a few years...
    "My Tiki mug cabinet is full now so I'm going to need to move the collection to another room."
    Actually that was last summer....

    I really like those mugs. :thumbsup2
    We haven't even gotten them out of the boxes since our shelf is full. We need to make another shelf or move it all to a new cabinet.

    At first glance, I thought the burger was in the drink. like one of those over-the-top bloody Mary drinks.
    :laughing: I know what you are talking about, but no, the burger had it's own plate.

    Nice capture. :)
    Thanks! It was a total luck photo!

    Close one! That would not have been good.
    Then again... it would make for a good story... after.
    Yeah, but I'm glad I didn't get caught up in it. I've been evacuated from Space Mountain once and it takes a long long time.

    Hmmm... Guess I'll have to see it before I come visit you again.
    How was the ride itself? Any different from before?
    The ride itself was unchanged, but there was additional theming associated with the movie that makes it cute and funny.

    Man, that looks great!
    OMG it was soo good, served hot and the chips were melty. I haven't had one since, but I should!

    Peace out!
    I'm running out of ideas for ride photos

    That sundae looks pretty good. No wonder he's smiling! :)
    Plus he's a definitely glass half full kind of guy so he's usually smiling. Plus he has a beautiful wife and two awesome kids, so not a lot to complain about.

    :laughing: Both Incredicoaster photos have you holding your glasses.
    That's what I do on that coaster. I'm afraid to wear them for fear they will fall off, but even more afraid to put them in the pouch.

    What are you doing, Alison?
    I'm toasting to the ride!

    Yeah, Jenny ended up throwing up that night.

    As you know, I'm not a fan of rum, but... otherwise that sounds amazing.
    I liked it, but the only thing that wasn't good was the potatoes and nachos.

    Oh, that's too bad. Hopefully she was okay?
    Other than throwing up that night, she ended up OK.

    They look weird too.
    Yeah they were weird. We didn't care for them.

    You mentioned that. Not pretty anymore.
    Definitely not pretty anymore, I really liked her as a kid cause I thought she was so pretty. I wanted to be her, being that I had red hair and all, or did before I started swimming and it turned blonde. Now she can go to...well, I don't like her anymore.

    Talk about a massive hole, these posts are like 5-6 months old!

    The dinner at the Lamp Lighter sounded gross. So sorry that you didn't care for it and am even sadder than it made Jenny sick! Awful!
    Yeah, it was kinda gross. I'm sorry that we felt we had to try it. And I felt even worse that Jenny got sick. I have an iron stomach, so I rarely have a problem.

    But the rest of the day looked super fun and you can never go wrong with drinks in Tikis!! I read there's a new hatbox one, and I'd LOVE to get my hands on one!!!! Might even be worth a trip down. ;)
    Well they sold out the second day, so the only place you can get them now is on eBay or if you make a deal with Fran.

    Wow I totally haven’t been following along here :fail: but I will go back and read and comment
    I'll have to post on my regular report cause I have a few more posts to put up here while I finish the Fantasy Cruise report.

    I had no idea you were continuing posting on this TR! I have missed a few updates.
    I'll make sure to post on the other report that I'm doing bonus features here, cause I have a few more before I'm done with the other one.

    That does sound interesting.

    Haha so funny!
    There wasn't a ton to do in Kansas City besides eat BBQ, but this was one of the more fun things to do!

    OMG I love corn and cheese. If you ever find a korean BBQ place near you called Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong, they have a little moat around their bbq grill and they put like an egg scramble in one section, and corn and cheese in another. Nice little side dish to the korean meats. But this cheesy corn you had looks amazing.
    Is this the one that you went to in NYC in one of your TRs? I remember you went to one with someone from Canada, Yuki I think and I found one in Koreatown near where our band rehearsal and concerts take place. Is this the same one you're talking about?

    Oh that is so cool! I'll have to check out Gogi Winery at some point!
    They have very good wines, but expensive. You can pretty much only get them at Disney or through their wine club.

    This looks delicious.
    It is seriously delicious!

    I love all these tiki mugs! You guys have all the cool tiki mugs!
    We try. At this point, we don't have enough space to display them all, they are all just sitting in boxes in the living room at this point.

    Is this that new place on Pixar Pier? Did the lobster nachos always look like that? We've never had them before but we've heard all about them. They honestly don't look that good form the picture above.
    Yes it is the new place on Pixar Pier. This is the first time I'd had the lobster nachos, and most likely the last.

    I was so behind, I’m sorry.
    No, I understand. I'm so far behind everywhere too!

    All those museums in KC were very cool. Loved the Arabia one. So sad that muel got left behind when it didn’t have to be.
    OH, you've been there too, wasn't it cool?

    You find the coolest car museums. I never even think to look for stuff like that.
    That's all Fran....she has a knack.

    The fish tiki mugs are awesome.
    They are really cool. Jill got one last weekend.

    Meeting Kurt Russell again? Bestill my heart! :love:

    Except I think they're no longer legal tender.

    Now I'm going to have to go look for yours as I can't remember the colour (I'm sure you've showed it in TR's)
    I'll save you the trouble.



    I agree that is crazy!
    There are some pretty funny looking cars!

    Beauty view, and my horse loving eye thought "ohhh a barn!"
    I barely even noticed the barn. :laughing:

    This is a great pic, I love both of your expressions!
    Thanks!

    Another great hat Fran! Nice pic also
    She chooses nice hats.

    I'll be happy to go with you to get them!

    Yummm that looks so good!
    Gotta love a good PuPu Platter!

    Pretty fun!

    But it made for a good story, didn't it? :)
    Sort of. We were at a convention across the street in a reception (for the Canadian customers) and were all sorta drunk. The boss paid for admission for everyone from my company who was at the reception, when it happened so I don't remember it so well. :laughing:

    I still have a few ideas up my sleeve. ;)
    Looking forward to seeing them!

    Yes! I think you asked about it previously now that I remember. It is the same, and it's very good!
    Maybe we'll get to try next month. Jenny and her husband are planning to come to the concert and want to try to Korean BBQ afterwards.

    So it’s been a while since I’ve posted stuff here, but I have a few things from the last part of the year that I’d like to share and since I haven’t wrapped up the cruise TR, I'll share them here, and while I haven't wrapped up the August trip report, I’m rapidly approaching our March trip.

    This post is from activities a few days before my current TR began back in August. Pixar Fest at DLR began in April and ended in September around the date that I got home from the cruise. We thought that Paint the Night would be ending with Pixar Fest, but we later found out that it continued for almost another two months. However, since we wanted to make sure that we saw it one last time, we headed out to the park with the intent to see the parade.


    Our only goal this evening was to see the parade, but you can’t enjoy a parade if you’re hungry and thirsty. So our first stop was the Margarita bar for a refreshing beverage followed by the Corn Dog Palace for one each of the Corn Dog and Cheese Dog.



    And after our lovely gourmet dinner, we sat down to an exquisite dessert.



    And then it was time to sit down in anticipation of the approaching parade.



    Soon the lights dimmed, and the music began.



    You've seen many pictures of this parade, so I'm going to keep them somewhat brief. We just wanted to see the parade one last time, especially the new one that they added a few months before.







    This was the new float, in celebration of Incredibles Two.





    Note Dash running around the float (also namesake of our new car).






    At this point, I just set down the camera to enjoy the rest of the parade, I’ve documented it many many other times in previous TRs if you want to see it in full let me know and I’ll direct you to some of the posts where you can find it.


    Following our cruise on the Fantasy, we didn’t go back to the parks in September at all. The first time that we even got out to the DL resort was in mid October. Trader Sam’s was releasing their annual mash up Halloween Tiki mug, and this time it was the Hatbox Ghost. People had started lining up around 4-5AM and they waited at least 5 hours to get one. We had stuff to do and couldn’t be that crazy, no let me correct that, we forgot about it, but we did get out there around noon and ended up waiting 4 hours until we finally got ours. While in line after about two hours they gave us wristbands, and then I could run off to Earl of Sandwich to get us some lunch, or was it actually breakfast? We waited another couple hours until we were finally at the front of the line and we ended up with four of these babies. Fran couldn’t have been happier, just look at her in this picture!



    We ended up giving one of the mugs to Jill because if it weren’t for her, we would have completely forgotten about the sale date. Turns out I was on my way to get my nails done when I got a text from Jill reminding me of the Tiki sale. Fran was still in bed, and you’ve never seen her move so quickly. We were in the car and on our way in 20 minutes, for us that’s a record! I rescheduled the nail appointment, and we got our mugs!

    The following week I had a DISmeet scheduled with a new friend. @DnA2010 was coming to town on a cruise ship and they had one day before flying home, so what did they plan to do? Visit Disney of course!

    I met up with them for lunch where we talked and talked and got on so well we forgot to take pictures! After lunch we decided to hit a few rides.





    Sadly after the few rides, I had to say goodbye. It was Tuesday night and while I was supposed to have the week off from band, we were performing at Disney the next weekend and needed the time to prepare our show for Disney.


    But first, we had more fun days at Disney coming up in my next update!
