    Sometimes I just like to sit and watch. My best place to do this is in front of the castle. Get a nice shady bench and just rest a while and watch everything happen around you.:D

    On the first day of our vacation we always go to DTD and buy a coffee from Ghiradelli`s which we drink whilst sitting at one of the tables by the lake, just watching the world go by and soaking up the atmosphere.

    Favorite things to do? We love the world showcase and like to poke around in the nooks and crannies of the different countries. There are a lot little tucked up areas that are nice.

    We love to arrive very early to AK and head right to the Pangani Forest Trail where we watch the gorilla troupe in the early morning. We've seen some of the most incredible behaviors from the gorillas before all the (noisy) guests arrive.

    Like slowhand we like to sit at the tables by the lake. However, instead of Ghiradelli coffee, we like to be sipping on Margaritas.

    We love to go to Celebration and buy a sundae from Kilwins and sit on the rocking chairs by the lake.

    We do this at least once a week whilst we are in Florida - I would love to live in Celebration and if I wion the lottery I'll buy myself one of the massive mansions by the 2nd lake - oh yes siree

    Just being there! Going for breakfast with my son, DH is a poke in the morning and we got in the habit of going just the two of us. It has very fond bonding memories for me!

    My must do's right now are Soaring, Splash Mountain, Toy Story Mania, dinner at Teppen Edo, Margaritas in the Tequila bar (located in the Mexican Pavillion) and a lot of pool time with a drink in my hand watching the family enjoying themselves.

    I have learned over the years, that for me, "must dos" don't work well...as it seems that just as sure as I set off on a trip saying, "I ABSOLUTELY MUST __________" something inevitably happens and prevents me from doing that very thing. So instead, I have a list of my very favorite things...and I see just how many I can tick off each trip :) I will say this...it is in the very *not* doing of some of those "must do's" that I have discovered some of my very favorite things...and ain't that just life?
    • Spend some good quality time in a hammock on one of the beaches...preferably at night just before the fireworks, but any time will do.
    • Eat a chocolate covered strawberry from the Sweet Spells candy shop
    • Listen to Piano Bob at Port Orleans
    • Watch the Fireworks
    • Ride Soarin' (I'm a huge coaster fan too, but there is just *something* about Soarin'. There are days in the "in-between" when just the slightest whiff of citrus can make my heart "soar".)
    • Send my grandparents a postcard
    • See Carol the Hat Lady in The Rose & Crown Pub
    • Run my fingers across my children's two Leave a Legacy tiles
    • Have a Grey Goose slushie
    • Indulge in a French pastry

    There's so many....
