  1. My wife picked up a couple of buckets at the weekend and spent most of yesterday evening looking at SVGs. I think she's hoping to make a couple for my daughters girl scout camping trip at the weekend.
  2. Thanks for the review, I was hoping to eat there next time I'm in Epcot, in a few weeks.
  3. I think I commented on that post. Stayed in a cabin for Thanksgiving 2 years ago, and it wasn't far off that. Unfortunately it's comparable to the other 6 person suites on property price wise.
  4. I guess it depends how much the settlement is shifting to the new resort. If they go as far as labeling part of the new resort I would be surprised if the Meadows didn't get a new restaurant. Given that they can't really call the cabins moderates without a table service restaurant on site. Assuming the cabins don't move that is.
  5. Looks like a cool idea, I got my wife a cricket for Christmas. Do you have the musket mickey svg ?
  6. Yes, looking forward to this, I've just gone through all the plain colored ones. Might well pay to upgrade my band for my October Fort trip.
  7. The plan for checkout day was to grab takeout breakfast while we packed up and then go to Magic Kingdom for a few hours. I'd just taken the EZ down, when it started raining really heavily. Wasn't much we could do but keep on packing up, and putting everything away wet. Ate breakfast huddled under the awning, just before taking it down. After that, we decided to skip the parks and go straight home. Was dry when we got back so were able to dry everything out.
  8. I was vaguely aware that there was a vegan food booth, although I'm not sure my daughter was she asked for the meatball, she ate though. My Mum is vegetarian, so I've had a number of meat substitutes over the years. For not being meat, these meatballs were definitely some of the best I've tried.
  9. Agreed, I don't know I would have paid for a dessert party if trying to get a view of the front of the castle wasn't an issue.
  10. If I've got the prices right this is more expensive than doing both CRT and the after fireworks dessert party. Unless I'm missing something the only extra is the West Plazza Garden Viewing? Does anyone know where this is? I'm really not bothered about doing CRT anytime soon. I have done the regular happily ever after garden dessert party and quite enjoyed it(My son wouldn't have coped with the fireworks otherwise). I might even be inclined to book the after fireworks party at some point (mostly as a way of dealing with crowds). However, if I'm doing a dessert party that's quite a lot of food anyway, including some savory items. I certainly wouldn't want to do the dessert party right after a big table service meal, and the certainly not pay more than the two experiences combined just to get a different view.
  11. You would think no one was hungry again that day, well a while after we got back to the Fort. My wife and I were discussing what to make for dinner, and both kids walk into the camper asking to go to Trails End. It was our last night there and they felt like the trip wouldn't be complete otherwise. Fair enough, but I've booked it for a bunch for our October trip as we've only done dinner there so far. Although this is the one time we went over budget. A quick stop at the arcade after dinner. Followed by a quick play The experience was slightly lessened by the fact that right after this photo was taken a little boy maybe 3 or 4 years old decides to pull his pants down and do a wee under the playset! Bus back to the site rather quickly after this ended up taking both kids to the see movie which was Toy Story 3. We stopped to fill up our drink cups at the pool, second odd experience of the night. This was close to 8pm so fairly quiet by the drink refill stations, there was a mother with a bunch of kids using the ice dispenser of the drink station to fill gallon zip lock bags and placing them in a small wagon. She most have easy had a dozen. Didn't want to pay $2 a for a bag of ice from the machines I guess. Anyway, we got over to the campfire and did s'mores, surprisingly both kids wanted to stay until the end of the movie, despite almost being asleep on the benches. Last night and all.
  12. The bowl-like the table cloth was from Target last summer. Epcot was mostly about Flower and Garden but did manage some rides, first Living with the Land which I hadn't done before. I think I would have appreciated the view from Graden Grill on previous trips a little more if I had done this earlier. By the time we had done this, it was gone 11 so time to start around the World Showcase. We had scoped out menus beforehand. Fist up was Flavor Full Kitchen, we had the salmon and the kids got a blood orange Aqua Fresca each. We found the playful garden, snagged some comfy seats and stayed there for a while. Really liked this, kids had a good time and nice and easy for one of us to run out to get snacks and drinks. We also got a dedicated Flower and Garden gift card each, since last time we did an Epcot festival we ended up spending most of our food budget there! Honey Bistro, honey mascarpone cheesecake, and the tandoori chicken flatbread. Brandy Barrel Honey Ale Citrus Blossom, they were out of Orange Bird cups, but we got the slushy drink anyway. Citrus shortcake. Crispy citrus chicken. TropiCannon Citrus IPA. Pinnaple Promanade, Frozen Violet Lemmonade Pineapple Soft Serve Pineapple Mana Wheat We left the playful garden after this and at my son's request headed towards Mexico. A quick stop in the shops and the kids decided to take up pin trading. Not a bad hobby really, better than spending their gift cards on plastic tat Trowl and Trellis, farmhouse meatball. Tropical Wonderland Wheat Ale. Didn't get anything to eat in Mexico, but did go on the boat ride which seems to be a favorite of my son's. Lotus House, spring rolls, and wontons which the kids shared. Bubble tea, the kids liked it, not impressed myself. Beef shank, I got this because I knew I needed to eat something and figured the kids would eat most of the wontons and spring rolls. My daughter still had about half of this. Jasmine Beer We were tired of walking after this and had a fast pass for Soarin', surprisingly my daughter just wanted to go back to the site while my son wanted to do Soarin'. Out of the four of us, I was the only one who had done it before, so my wife took him while my daughter and I headed back. After one last photo.
  13. Last full day was Epcot, we'd been there when Flower and Garden was on two years ago but didn't really see much of it. This time my wife was disappointed that they didn't have all the Orange Bird Merchandise they did the previous year but was excited to get the sipper until they sold out of them! Before that breakfast, had planned on a later start, so a bigger breakfast at the site this time.
