Sisters, Sisters...Day 2, Part 2...Walt Disney World Trip Report, Boardwalk Villas & Villas at Wilderness Lodge, December 12-21, 2012...Last Christmas at Camp Minnie Mickey

Well, it's been 8 months since I've updated this trip report. Betcha thought I wasn't coming back, huh? I'm sure you were all cursing at your monitor, saying to yourselves, "when is Teresa coming back to finish this scintillating trip report!!!"!!!

At this point, I've taken two more trips to the world, one in May 2013, just my bff and myself. Stayed at AKL (Animal Kingdom Lodge) Kidani Village for two nights in a studio, and then moved over to a one-bedroom villa at Jambo House with an amazing and beautiful pool view. Then this past October 2013, we went with a group of 19 family members to the world, as it was our four grandsons' first Disney trip. If I ever finish this trip report, I may follow up with reports for those two trips.

The May trip with the bff was divine! One of the best WDW trips I've ever taken (sorry DH )...edited to add for those who don't frequent the DISboards at www.wdwinfo.com, DH is an abbreviation for "dear husband". The October trip, well, that's a whole other story.

So, back to this trip report, finally.  The plan was to have an uneventful, but yummy, lunch at Rainforest Cafe (I'm assuming it was uneventful & yummy, as at this point who can remember), & then take a stroll to Camp Minnie Mickey to see the Festival of the Lion King. We didn't know at that time that it would be one of the last times to hang out in Camp Minnie Mickey.















Apparently we had some really yummy spinach & artichoke dip, according to this picture! Mare really seems to be enjoying it!Spinach and Artichoke Dip - creamy spinach, tender artichokes and melted Monterey Jack, Parmesan, and cream cheeses, topped with pica de gallo and served warm with cripy tri-color tortilla chips $9.99 As far as what we had for lunch, who knows. Didn't take any photos of our meal.

I'm sure we were sufficiently stuffed though. Thank goodness we didn't have to do any tumbling like these tumble monkeys are.



Don't you just love the flying birds air ballet ( I have no idea what it's called; I just made that name up) in the FOTLK? It's my fav part of the show.


After the show we snapped some photos of the beautifully decorated Christmas trees interspersed throughout Camp Minnie Mickey, then headed back to the Boardwalk Villas to rest up for our evening in Epcot.







To be continued..Martinis & margaritas at San Angel Inn!

Twinkling Lights and Dazzling Displays, Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, PA (Warning: Very Photo Heavy!!!)

My one and only beautiful daughter wanted to visit Longwood Gardens in Kennet Square, PA, to celebrate her birthday.  It would be her first trip there, as well as mine.  We planned it for Saturday, December 21st, as her birthday was December 17th.  I can't describe the beauty, elegance, and Christmas festivity we saw that day, so I'll let you see for yourself in some photos I took.  Enjoy!
