8 December 2005 Thursday
was a day we
were meeting up with Meeko's Mom & Ray for some park hopping &
visiting. Sean got a lot of cute pix of Stitch merch as requested
for our Stitch crazy buddies back home.. as well a lot of other fun
stuff.. You can see those photos on our seeekrit squirrel Stitch merch
Meeko's mom hadn't been to WDW in ages.. decades if you will so it was
fun & scary trying to park hop all four parks in one day to see all
the holiday goings on in one day. Suffice to say with the weather we'd
been having, we didn't have much luck with the holidays, but we did
manage to do at least one attraction in each park. Better luck next
time I guess!
mom Judy (meeko's mom) Ray & SeanYoda on a very blustery day!
We rode Spaceship Earth then headed over to World Showcase. Because of the rain, the
Storytelling around the World was cancelled so we were unable to share
even a couple of the storytelling experiences with Pamela's mom, who is
really into Christmas. =)
We then decided to have lunch, but Le Cellier (where we thought we'd
have a treat of cheese soup and breadsticks and yummy sandwiches)
was fully booked and not taking walkups. So instead we went to France.We had lunch at Chefs de France with our
very own aloof frenchman.. j/k he was ok and so was the lunch. SeanYoda
& Pamela had never eaten here so it was a first for everyone.
We're glad we tried it. We may actually have lunch here again one
day. The french onion soup was pretty good and filling as
was the sandwich that came with. Meeko was hungry and ended up
finishing all of hers (or so we think).

Epcot for Christmas stuff was pretty much a bust but we tried to keep
positive and moved on to the next park! Animal Kingdom.. Where
not only was the holiday parade canceled (because of the rain) the park
was pretty quiet and empty. We decided to take Judy & Ray on
safari.. which was all ours for the most part (there were like 2
families). The ride was well worth it pain and all. The lions
taking the monorail at the TTC (monorail purple coming into the
Next we head to the Magic Kingdom! =) Where we once again are
unable to see the holiday parade beause of the weather, however.. we
did ride a few attractions! The Carousel, Mickey's Philharmagic,
and Countrybears Playhouse Christmas version.
the Countrybears (Christmas) Playhouse =)
Our last chance for Holiday fun.. again washed out, but we needed a
break! Dinner at MGM? Time to have a filling dinner and enjoy just
visiting with mom & Ray.. where to? Sean & Pamela's fave &
fun Sci Fi Dine In of course! =)
looped on the big screen and dinner from the comfort of your 'car'
but first.. S&P get their
2nd wind.. (maybe it was the cool & rainy walk back to
through Epcot for Sean.. and the litlte nap that Pamela took while she
waited for Sean to come back to the resort.. either way.. a quick trip
to Disney Quest to get online and to play a few video games in the
dec 9th shopping =)
