Here they are!

Here is my last batch of pictures from my big Disneyworld trip. All in all, I would call it a rousing success.

Here I am riding the shuttle bus in front of my hotel on the first day of my vacation, I'm all wide-eyed anticipation and innocence... but that would all change, very soon...

Here's me and Mater with Pluto on Main Street. Just seconds after this picture was taken, he took a dump and then started eating it. That was awkward.

This is when I got crushed to death.

I'm a businessman! And I'm late for a meeting! In New York City!

Here I am putting the moves on Goofy.

My other car is a TIE Fighter.

This is a giant gingerbread house in the Grand Floridian Hotel. I pooped in the gingerbread toilet. At least I thought it was a toilet. It could have been the cash register.

Mater is standing in front of a gingerbread model of the Polynesian hotel which she was inside of. Hence, logic dictates there was a gingerbread model of Mater inside it. And then it just repeats, on and on to infinity.

Here I am, chilling out on a swing on the beach in front of the Polynesian Resort Hotel, my favorite hotel in the world that I was too poor to stay in.

Mater riding "It's A Small World".

This is the tree in the Grand Floridian Resort Hotel. It is really big.

Here is some nutcrackers people from Small World.

Here's me in front of some drunken Micks.

I am riding the people mover, only they don't call it that at Disneyworld. At Disneyworld they call it "The Tomorrowland Transit Authority", but to me, it will always be the people mover. Sorry to get controversial.

That's it, see you next time!

While you wait for more pics...

Here is a mini-account of my trip.

I had a great time. It was fun hanging out with my mom and my friends. I probably gained 20 pounds while simultaneously walking 500 miles. Not bad for someone who had heart surgery 9 months ago.

And I only threw up once!

I sent out probably 50 video postcards from various places in EPCOT.

I got to watch the fireworks from the top of the Contemporary Resort Hotel.

I drove a boat around with Pickles.

I became a monorail co-pilot.

I took a backstage tour of the Magic Kingdom, courtesy of my friend, Alton.

And most interestingly of all, there were six other Filipkowskis in the hotel with me. I shit you not. I didn't talk to them cuz I hate Pollocks, but still, that's kinda crazy, don't you think?

More Bordo pics

Me and Yury. This was in the lounge in our hotel.

Chad Robuckle and I.

The answer to the eternal question, "who the hell goes to Disneyworld to get drunk?"

In case you were starting to think bordo wasn't the devil.

Eric and Yury again. How is this different from the one above? It isn't.

On top of everything else, I appear to be going gray.

Yes, she can do better.

Eric, Bordo and Violet on a boat fleeing the EPCOT World Showcase.

If Fonzie were Russian. And never got laid. And was drunk all the time. And a lawyer. So, not Fonzie at all.

It's hard to see, but Bordo and Yury thought it would be funny to do the "zeig heil!" salute in the Germany Pavilion at EPCOT while wearing Mickey hands. They can do that cuz they're Jewish.

My "friends" thought it would be a good idea to ditch me for the day and go visit the Dolly Parton Museum.

Some new pics from Bordo

Here I am in front of a mural in the middle of Cinderella's Castle.

Here's me, Bordo and Yury in Fantasyland. Or as we're known there: sickly, baldy and Russian. That spot isn't on my shirt.

Bordo wanted to hold hands or something. With me. Not his girlfriend, Violet.

Eric, Violet and Yury. More mysterious spots.

Eric and Yury on the bus after a long day of Disneyworlding.

Baldo and Violet.

I guess in Russia this is normal.

Surprisingly, Yury is a lightweight when it comes to drinking.

Who likes Pickles more?

It's official!

That's me! I'm an official Disneyworld Monorail Co-Pilot!

Goodbye showbiz! Hello to the glamorous world of monorail piloting!

More pics - Me and Mater

Here's some more pictures, these are from the first three days of my vacation, when my mom was here.

Mater and I in front of Cinderella's Castle on Main Street, USA.

Again, in front of Cinderella's Castle, this time on the pathway to TomorrowLand.

Here we are in front of the big "Mickey as the Sorceror's Apprentice" hat at MGM.

On Main Street, USA. Two seconds before I squashed that bug.

This is at EPCOT in front of a big Christmas tree and a bunch of giant, fake presents.

EPCOT at night, in front of Spaceship Earth (the ball).

First pics!

Hi! I'm in Disneyworld right now, having a great time. Pickles just left. Bordo, Violet and Yury should be here in a few hours. Here are the first pics I have from the trip:

Here is me and Pickles.

Here I am as a flower!

More to come!

Bon voyage!

I set out for Self-Actualization Camp tomorrow with my mom but don't fret. If you act quickly, you can sign up for my Premier Pass Plus program!

What is the Premier Pass Plus program, you ask?

I'm glad you asked, Timmy. For just $24.95 a day, I will send you a text message and let you know every single ride I am going on, right before or after I go on it. In addition, I will keep you informed as to all my purchases and other extra-curricular activities.

If I'm buying a hat in the Japan Pavilion at EPCOT, you'll know about it!

If I'm in the hot tub at the Port Orleans Riverside hotel, you'll know it!

If I get one of those Mickey Ice Cream bars while I'm strolling down Main Street, U.S.A., I'll hit you up and tell you about it!

Think about it, for less than half of what it costs to spend a day in the parks, you'll get the full-on "Eric Filipkowski at Disneyworld" experience! What a bargain.

But act quickly cuz I'm only accepting ten applications for this innovative, new service. I'm not gonna spend my whole fucking vacation sending text messages to a bunch of assholes who can't even afford to go to Florida and spend a week in the world's greatest vacation resort, like me.

Interested parties may contact me at

Dec. 12-19

Hi everbody, I will be going to Disneyworld this December. I'll be staying at the Port Orleans Riverside hotel from the 12th to the 19th. That's Monday to Monday. My friends Pickles and Bordo might be joining me at various points in the trip as well as some other of my friends.

The reason for this blog (at this point) is to try and see if there will be anyone else going to Disneyworld who would like to hang out with us. This is not a sleazy come on, I've just found that when it comes to Disneyworld, the more the merrier.

If you don't know my deal, you can read about it on my blog, but basically, last March I had some very serious heart surgery and to celebrate the fact that I did not die, I am treating myself to a week at Disneyworld. It should be a fun time, so if you're going to be there anyway, or you're really rich or you just like me alot, come on down.

So if you're interested, drop me a line at and let me know!
