SURPRISE! We are going to Disney World, Today!

Okay, before I get any further, introductions and a little history!

I’m Carey, Mom to the family and total planner & Production Manager to large school district.

DD, Samantha. Even though she doesn’t come along on this trip, she does have a part in this.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Disney%20Vacation%20%202011/DSC04863.jpg

Our First WDW trip was in January 2009. We LOVED it and soon started to think about another. Trip number 2 was January 2011, and included a side trip to SeaWorld.

While waiting ever so patiently (not really)in the fall of 2010 for our January 2011 trip to arrive, we started seeing commercials on TV for MNSSHP. We received mail from Disney about MNSSHP, and our Disney Visa rewards card sent us mailings outlining MNSSHP and everything you could do at Disney during this time of the year. John apparently starting thinking about maybe it might be fun to do a little trick or treating at Disney. On October 23, 2010 he asked me what I thought of the idea.

I thought about it for …………..2 seconds and said YES, let’s do it! He then thought to include his Mom as we thought she could use a break. She had thought about it, but sadly declined. After about 2 days we had decided and officially on November 3, 2010 we had a deposit down on it and a little farther down the line Free Dining came out and we snapped that up too! On our Jan trip, our plane was delayed for 6 hours so they gave us 4 vouchers for $25 a flight and then we got an additional $300 from AirTran a month later for our inconvenience. Bonus!

Now to the reason this TR is titled “Wake Up! SURPRISE, We’re going to Disney World…. TODAY!

We had discussed surprising our DD’s with a trip, but didn’t have a definite idea until this trip about. We made up our minds that this was the chance we’d been waiting for. We then made the hard decision to not bring Samantha along. She would be starting college in the fall of 2011 and you can’t just leave for a vacation from college. We had done many vacations and things with Sam in the 10 years before Kadence came along. We did keep it from her until a month before the trip and she was fine with it! She really isn’t much of a Disney person (where did I go wrong?) and was excited for Kadence to have this experience.

Our Dates were September 21st to September 25th. Three and a half days to cram in as much as we could and cram we did!

We decided to tell Kadence the morning of the 21st at 3:30am! That’s right when we had to leave to drive to the airport in Milwaukee, WI. It’s a 2 ½ hour drive for us, and we wanted to catch the surprise on tape and not miss it while we were driving or arriving to the airport.

I have video of the reveal; I just have to get John to get it on the computer so I can upload it. In the mean time, I have a few photos.


SURPRISE! (3:30am!)

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00491.jpg

You notice she reacted a bit right away, but then after seeing the bags in the porch, I think thats when it really hit! She really did have tears in her eyes and was a giggling most of the way to Milwaukee and in the airport and on the plane!:rotfl2:

I hope you enjoy!

I forgot to add Kadence's imput! I thought about it and decided since this trip was mostly all about her, why don't we get a few words to add to each update!

Me: So, what did you think when we surprised you?

Kadence: I though you where tricking me, but I did think a little bit because Daddy was wearing his Phinnaes & ferb shirt.

Me: Did you like that we surprised you?

Kadence: Yes, can I be surprised on our next rip too? Wait, I want to know. Maybe.

It was heartwarming to me that she had tears! I'd like to think it meant alot! I think it was the shock really setting in. She's an easy wake up usually, but that was a bit too early for her. I love her giggle:lovestruc

This had been such a busy week, I haven't had time to post an update like I wanted, Kadence had (unplanned) oral surgery Monday afternoon. They had wanted to pull her baby bottom eye tooth as it was crowding the the new tooth next to it. I put it off until after Disney, if I had known then, I would have done it on a Friday so I could have have taken care of her without any issues.

I brought her in and they took her back, after a half an hour, I was wondering, How long does it take to pull a loose tooth? A few minutes later, and dental assistant came out to get me so the dentist could talk to me. When I get in the room, there's Kadence laying on the chair with a wad of bloody gauze in her mouth.

The dentist proceded to tell me how they also pulled the baby molar next to the loose tooth! My poor baby:sad2: I was given a booklet on how to take care of the mouth after oral surgery and how to do a salt water rinse, feed her soft foods and not to use any straws for a week or so.

Here's the kicker, I had to left to go out of town for work on Tuesday overnight, be gone all day Wed, and I just got home tonight at 7pm.

Daddy had to take care of her, and apparently salt water rinses and Kadence do not get along:laughing:

She doing well now, no major swelling, just a little discoloration along her jaw from them reaming on her jaw, and the pain is gone as long as she doen't poke at it, ( which she can't seem to not stop :rolleyes1

I'm going to get an update up here tomorrow night, so I 'll see ya'll then! Good Night!

It was a 2 ½ drive to airport in Milwaukee, and Kadence either giggled or chatted most of the way, so much for the hope of her getting some sleep on the drive. We park offsite and have a shuttle drop us at the Airtran gate. She told the shuttle driver that this was a surprise trip.

We got to the security line (no checked luggage for this trip! I did three carry-ons and 3 personal items so we were good!) When the TSA agent asked her name, she told them “Kadence, and we’re going to Disney cuz my Dad surprised me”.
When we got to our gate the Airtran agents we’re asking for 3 people to give up their seats as the flight was over booked. Kadence said to no one in particular, “we can’t, we’re going to Disney for a surprise!

When we arrived in Orlando and our car service person was waiting for us, and Kadence told her all about how she was surprised. We stopped at the store and then on to POP Century!

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00503.jpg

I was excited to check it all out; as I’ve heard lots of Dis’ers love it there. We beat the ME there, so the lobby was very quiet. We checked in quickly, our room was ready (YAY) and while waiting for our KTTW Kadence told the CM all about how she was surprised! I believe she was somewhat excited!:rotfl2: The CM thought it was awesome and gave Kadence a celebration button.

On to our room. We were in the 70’s area rm# 6259 and while our view was of the new Art of Animation resort, we did like it as it was quieter than the pool area. The first thing we did was put up our Disney Halloween window clings.

We saw some pretty cute window displays on our forays around POP, so I’m glad we did it. We then decide to take some time to walk around and check out our surroundings.

We were sooo hungry by then I almost stopped in Everything POP for a snack but Earl of Sandwich was calling my name….LOUDLY! On to DTD!


Views from Kadence;

ME: So, what did you think when we told you we were going to stay at POP?

Kadence: I was happy and excited because I wanted to always stay there.

ME: What did you think of POP when you first saw it and we walked around a bit?

Kadence: I love it! It's so cool, like for kids. Why didn't you take a picture of me inside the yoyo?

ME: I forgot, we ran out of time.

Kadence: We should have stayed longer so you could take the picture.

That's great you were able to check in so quickly and that your room was ready. I love POP, all the icons are so neat. We stayed there in 04 and were in the 60's section with a view of what was at the time construction for the other section of POP, this was before they stopped Construction on it.

Enjoying your TR, can't wait to read more, Kadence seems really excited, that's cute how she is telling everyone about the surprise. I love her little comments at the end.

I was surprised that our room was ready. It wasn't even noon yet! I did enjoy staying there and seeing all the decade themed areas. Disney does it right!:thumbsup2

Thanks:goodvibes She loves to chat to people if they give her half an ear. She loves that everyone can read what she's telling me to type, and I'm going to type them they way she says them. She can be quite the goof!

Oooooh soooooo sweet!!!!!!! I loved it!! I really enjoy her insights on your chapters too, great idea!

You said you did a car service and stopped at a store? Was that to pick up some food/snacks/water for the room? Do you find that cheaper overall than a delivery service such as Garden Grocer? I have been meaning to look into the car +1 stop option to find out if it's cheaper, but haven't yet....

Welcome!:wave2: Thanks, she was the biggest part of this trip, so I thought she could share her words of wisdom!:thumbsup2

We use Tiffany Town car service, I can give you info if you'd like. We love them. It cost $109 for round trip service,($104 with online coupon) and they pick you up at bagage claim (with a sign with your name on it, makes me feel important haha) and they handle your bags, take you to the Publix store (we do buy food/snacks/drinks) and on to your resort. At the end oif your vacation they pick you up at your resort and drop you at your airline gate. Very nice people we've had and knowledgeable about the area if you aren't:thumbsup2 Plus they only have top of the line vehicles (Lincolns, Caddies, and if you want a limo, but it cost a bit more) They also offer a booster seat if needed.

I hope "K" is doing better now. Poor kid. I'm afraid if I take Claire in they will do that to her too. She has really big front teeth and the 2 that have come in take the space of 4 little ones.

She's doing much better. She ate a burger yesterday and said it didn't hurt. I checked her mouth and it looks great, just like she only lost a tooth:thumbsup2
Kadence has crowding in her bottom jaw, and the tooth between the front one and the eye tooth is coming in behind where it should. They are hoping by pulling the 2 they did, that behind tooth will come forward. In a few years I think the braces conversation will be coming!:sad2:

She's not too shy about talking to others, and POP bought out the happiness in her big time!:yay:

We found the bus stop area and the bus to DTD was there within minutes! This is a pattern for the whole trip, bus always there at POP, but not around at the Parks!:confused3
We arrived to DTD around 1:00pm . A quick stop for a picture ,

Then right to Earl of Sandwich.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00520.jpg

We stood and debated for a moment and then gave our order.
It wasn’t very busy and our orders were done quickly, our buzzer was going off by the time we found a seat and got napkins and forks.
Kadence got the pizza sandwich, and brownie, and water.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00523.jpg

It was all so good, just how I remembered from 2 yrs ago! The A/C felt good because it was SOOOOO Blasted warm outside! I was not prepared for the heat blast. I’m a sweater, so I was a bit uncomfortable the whole trip. I will always plan my Disney trips in the future for coolr weather

Up next; We Shop!

Views from Kadence

ME: Did you have a good lunch at Earl of Sandwich?

Kadence: The brownie was good, but the crust on the bread was too hard for my loose tooth. Why does Dad call it duke of earl?

ME: Because he's weird like that! I cut the crust off, was it good then?

Kadence: It was ok. I wish we would've eaten at POP. I saw good stuff in there.

ME: We didn't even go through there yet, how would you know?

Kadence: People were eating outside and they had good food. I saw it!

I'm so glad that you posted pictures of your Earl of Sandwich meals. In all of our trips to DTD, we have never eaten there even though I say we need to try it out. I was especially happy to see the pizza sandwich. Hunter is not a sandwich eater but could eat pizza every meal.

The shyness, which has never really been a factor for her:rolleyes: was nowhere to be found on this trip...except for once, but I'll get to that later.

The pizza Sandwich was good, but it was on the kids menu so it was a bit smaller than ours sandwiches. It was good!

Poor girl with that oral surgery. My daughter had one when she was 5. It was supposed to be 2 1/2 to 3 hours. It ended up being 5 hours. With way too many extra teeth pulled and lots of other things done. She was so upset they pulled extra teeth instead of fixing them. But thankfully shes not scared of the dentist after that.

The sandwiches all looked delicios. Mmmmm. Definitely going there. And loved the the pic with tweedle dee and dum. I haven't seen that before in all the years we've gone.

I needed a bag to drag Kadence’s dresses around the parks, so I picked this up. I think it’s cute, and I also saw it as a dress for girls in the store. I guess there was a lot of this fabric!

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC06355.jpg

John picked up a blue t-shirt that has Mickey surfing. Kadence got a new pair of sunglasses, because Mommy forgot to pack hers. We also didn’t want her to go crazy with the shopping and buy the first things she saw. So I told her to take snapshots in her head of things that she liked, let’s just say she should have just taken a “snapshot” of the whole store! We were coming back to DTD on our last day, so if she really liked a couple things she could then make up her mind to which she liked the best.

Up Next; Photopass meets Kadence

Views from Kadence:

ME: Did you enjoy getting all the potato head parts?

Kadence: Yea, I wish I got Mrs. Potato Heads stuff. And another potato head.

ME: You have 3 heads, 2 little heads and a giant head, what more do you need?

Kadence: Perry.

Yay!!! She got the potato heads! Claire really enjoyed those I borught home for her too. I need to pull them back out, I put them away and I think she forgot about them now.
I think Kadance needs a Perry too! :goodvibes
I LOVE :love: your bag! I have been eyeing that pattern for several years now. I am to ofat to fit into the clothing, but came close to getting a flowy tank with some of that pattern on it this year (the price was just too high). Patty, one of the TA's with us bought the backpack and again, I was really close to buying it. I just didn't NEED it, and with the price I backed down. if I knew I would use it more often I would've bought it, but I have so many bags and totes that I decided I probably shouldn't....so instead , I bought a ton of other stuff I didn't need. :confused3

Boy did she ever! Just wait till we go back to DTD..... I blame it all on DH!

Thanks! I really liked the pattern. It saw little girls dresses, purses, backbags, and a little sun hat all made from that fabric. To my shock, when Sam finally saw it last weekend, even she liked it:thumbsup2 This from someone who wanted a sweatshirt from florida, but it couldn't have a character or say WDW on it:confused3

Everyone needs a Perry!!!!

She already has the whole gang ( in smaller version)from our Jan trip, so I made the exceutive decision to say no. But, other friends do make their way home with us!

I need a Mr. Potato Head!!! :rotfl: They are fun to play with! I have fun making the weirdest looking ones I can and Kadence thinks I'm great so win/win!

I would have gotten it any way!:rotfl2: Dh was happily picking them out with her. He tried to convince her into some Star Wars ones but no dice.:lmao:
I totally needed a bag each day. We had to cart her clothes for after the tea, then keep her gowns & shoes before and after events that she needed them. At one point I wished it had been larger:eek:

Love the bag!! Great pose with Mr. Potato Head too!!

Thanks:goodvibes She loves her posing. She bridged to a Brownie from a Daisy in Girl Scouts and during pics she started with her posing and I had to tell her to stop:rolleyes1

I love shopping at WoD:lovestruc I could wander forever!

We had planned on a box when we went down, I had asked a few people how many could fit in a box. I wanted to get as much as I could, and a very nice CM helped us cram them in!

The bags a hit:thumbsup2

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00558.jpg

After that, Kadence was very eager to get back to POP and swim in the pool, so we moseyed back to the bus stop, along the way we saw this cute fountain. Of course Kadence got into full on poser mode.

Up Next; Back to POP for swimming (with a pool closure!) and a little more posing.


Views from Kadence:

ME: What do you think of all the pictures that I took and the photo guy took?

Kadence: I like them, he was funnier than you.

ME: Thanks, which is your favorite?

Kadence: I like the Christmas ones, because it looks like it was cold with snow but it was really hot out.
When can I tell about the photopass guy?

ME: When we get that far in the trip.

Kadence: Well hurry, I have to go to school in the morning!

Did Kadance by chance see all of Claire's topiary poses before leaving. :rotfl2:

And I know all about the mirrors. Claire dances and sings with a fake microphone in front of one all the time. I would love to video tape her one day (only if she doesn't catch me) because some of the moves she does is hilarious.

It looks like you are having a wonderful time at DTD.

I keep thinking...in the back of my mind...that if we have a late flight after the cruise next year, maybe we should go to DTD for a bit and shop/look around and just take more of it in.

I love your TR so far! I just read all of your updates so hopefully I remember all that I wanted to comment on:

1- The surprise reaction video..priceless! Her giggling just MAKES the video, she is so genuinely excited, happy and surprised that she doesn't even know what to say! It's adorable.

2- We ate at Rainforest Cafe this May in DTD..it was decent. The food is not amazing, but it's good. It's more for the atmosphere, which is really fun. The animals 'come to life' every X amount of minutes (I think like 8 minutes, something along those lines)..and its' really fun, because there are animals all throughout the restaurant and suddenly they are all moving around and making their sounds.

3- I am decent with photoshop, I will try to merge your photos. About to go apple picking, so I will see what I can do this evening!

We waited FOREVER for a bus to get us back to POP. To the exact minute, it took 58 minutes. I was very warm as the sun was hitting right on us in full force and Kadence was getting a bit cranky. The bus stop was very full of people all waiting and watching all the other buses drive past. Finally it came and it was filled and we had to stand, but a very nice lady let Kadence share a seat with her little girl.
Back at POP Kadence got back in good humor, (must have been the a/c on the bus) and she posed on the way back to the room.

She had fun in the Hippy Dippy pool playing with other kids; all of a sudden they called to clear the pool. I thought maybe they just were taking a break, but then a man next to us said why do they have a net? One of the guards put on gloves and had a long pole with a pool cleaner on the end.


YUCK! Someone pooped in the pool! :scared1: Kadence asked if we could go to one of the other pools, I was like YES!
We headed over to the bowling pin pool. I liked the theming over there, John being a Dj , was thrilled to see the Jukebox, or as Kadence called it the Juice box.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00581.jpg

I’m just mad than my camera strap was in the shot, I wish I would seen it.


I was trying out my newish point & shoot (and No, I didn’t delete any photos from it until we were safe and home with them uploaded! I had a little incident in right after I got it in July, where I deleted all of Sam’s grad party photos.) And used the panoramic shot function

If had a tripod, they would have been more level.


It was getting dark, and we decided we needed a snack. I knew what I wanted, Tye Dyed Cheesecake! YUMMMMM! John had the same and Kadence wanted a fruit bowl.

I was a bit upset it took so long, but I tried to keep Kadence from having a meltdown. She's like me and can get cranky when she hot, so I stood in front of her for shade and tried to play I Spy with her. I am glad she had a seat, it seemed like a long bus ride to POP.

I think POP is made for photos. Very visiual. The pool incident was :sick: but it did give us a reason to explore!

She loves to pose and I'm glad that I got that one without anyone else in the shot!:thumbsup2
Mmmm, cheesecake.....Twas yum-O

Getting from DTD to anywhere is always awful, but I swear the buses for Pop are the slowest the. I have waitied over 40 minutes myself one trip...and I was in a hurry!

It was the longest wait of any our trips and I will plan around that in the future! I'm glad we weren't in a hurry!

Those panoramic shots are awesome!!! What kind of camera is it? I am looking for a new p&s...:rolleyes1

Love all of your DDs poses, I have a DD that loves to ham it up for the camera too! Makes it so fun!

My camera is; http://reviews.cnet.com/digital-cameras/sony-cyber-shot-dsc/4505-6501_7-34547260.html
It's my new baby, besides my DSLR

I have tell Kadence to stop poosing sometimes!:lmao: But I'm glad she doesn't run screaming from the camera!

Wow! an hour for the bus? :scared1:

I'm with Kadence, why would anyone poop in the pool? :laughing: Though I've spent enough time around the kiddie pool to know it's not that unusual.:rotfl2:

There were other people there before us who were very vocal about the wait! Earplugs kids!

:laughing:Kadence did remember a time it happend in a local pool here, but was kinda surprise one would do it at Disney!

:lmao: Kadence's bits are the best!
Thanks, she has great thoughts!

Oh my word....a 58 minute wait for the bus? I know the buses at DTD are notoriously slow to get there but that's a loooong wait.

Poop in the pool? Yucky! Thankfully, we've never encountered that situation.

Kadence and her posing crack me up. The ones of her looking into the mirror remind me of Lacey so much. She used to do that at Kadence's age and still does it so I'm afraid you may have many more years of primping in the mirror to come. :lmao:

Are you SURE it was poop and not like, a baby ruth? its happens you know. ok. maybe just in Cadyshack.
im sure that happens more than we want to know about. especially at the water parks. yuck. oh well. :laughing:
the buses were kind of crappy for us too- not all the time. but crappy at the times when I JUST WANTED TO GET INTO BED. the times that matter the most.

Great Update!

I keep hearing about how bad bus service getting back from DTD is. I did plan on heading there for lunch one day but I switched to an ADR at Epcot and if we find time we might go to DTD it is one of my favorite places but the thought of waiting and waiting for a bus and having to stand does not excite me.

Kandance loves to pose, my DS:littleangel: was the same way at that age, even modeled once in a runway show for a local store and loved it. You might have a lil model on our hands.

too funny about the pool poop :rotfl: love the pics of POP, I wish I could convince DH to stay there so much.

I haven't had that happen to me before either, but then again I sure it not blasted for all to hear:lmao:

The funny thing is I was never a girly girl when I was younger, and then here's Kadence who is everything glittery and girly. We think we may be in trouble:cutie:

This was our first experience with the buses from DTD, we've only stayed at POR before this, and the boats ran every 20 mins or less.

Kadence would love to model. She parades around here like it's a runway and wants to borrow here sister's full length mirror all the time:lmao:

I really enjoyed our stay there.:thumbsup2

Joining in, because surprises are fun!

I really want a Pascal too, but I want a little one I can strap to my shoulder. Or maybe some earrings. Or one that I can pin to my purse strap. You know, so he can come with me everywhere - those little Pascals are so cute!

And I would have DEFINITELY gotten a cab if I waited over 25 minutes at the bus stop. I am NOT a very patient bus-waiter. I can wait for a lot of things, but not a free bus. :laughing: But 58 minutes is just nuts.

And then the pool! Talk about a surprise trip! And love the photoshop on those three t-shirts - that is so cool. Definitely a picture you want to print and hang.

Love your daughter's take on things; looking forward to more.

Kadence loves her Pascal. We told her to pick one animal to bring with to Disney and she didn't even waver, it was Pascal!

We were upset the bus was a long time coming, but also relived we didn't have anywhere we had to be.

As soon as I saw the photo re-edited I was like posting it everywhere!:lmao:It's very eye catching!

Kadence has lots to say!:rotfl2:



I've been so busy lately, plus I took another step in the direction of doing some photography for a side business. I did a senoir photoshoot yesterday, and after editing all 200 pics, I gave them to the family and they LOVED them!:woohoo:

Anyway, I promise to get an update up on Thursday morning, because I have a 4 day weekend !:banana:

Just caught up--- I love the surprise trips- we did that with our dd now 11 when she was 6. She didn't believe us until she saw the luggage, as well.

We have never stayed at POP, only at All Star Sports---Kids love those resorts! The cheesecake looked yummy!

Poo in the pool..I would have had to go straight back to the room, no matter how many chemicals. I agree with Kadence..why would you poop in the pool?!!
Her comments are just like what our dd would say.

We went to MNSSHP for a whirlwind weekend in 2009. Looks like your trip is just great so far except for a few incidents.

Thanks for sharing!

We all slept great, and I just had enough thime to set out another surprise for Kadence.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00597.jpg


I borrowed an idea from another DISer (Thanks Jen!) and made up some notes ahead of time to set out for Kadence to let her know what was going to happen on our days. Each note was another surprise of what was to come. This note was to invite her to the My Disney Girl Princess Tea Party at the Grand Floridian.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/Aurora.jpg


We also gave her a princess camera to take her own pictures with, but I guess it didn’t make it into the photo??

Since we didn’t have to be there until 10:30, we had plenty of time to get ready and have our breakfast at Everything POP. John and I have the breakfast platter and Kadence had Mickey waffles. It was all good and very filling!

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00599.jpg

We wandered around in the store for a while and then headed to the busstop to catch the MK bus. Once there, we hit the momorail and soon we arrived at the Grand Floridian. WOW, what a fancy, smancy place!

Views from Kadence:

ME: So, when you woke up and found the note from Auroua, what did you think?

Kadence: How did she get it in our room? That is was cool to.

ME: Were you happy we ate at POP for breakfast?

Kadence: YES! I loved my micky waffles, but the chocolate milk was wrong.

ME: Wrong how? Why didn't you say something?

Kadence: Tasted kinds bad, but good. I did want to say it, I was thinking about the store.

ME: Were you excited about the Tea Party?

Kadence: Yes, I was worried I had to hold my pinky up the whole time.

Question to anyone familar with photobucket;

When I uploaded my photos, I resized them all then. I can see that most are kina fuzzy. Why? The photo of Kadence in the T-shirts wasn't resized and it looks clear.

Also the pictures from the point and shoot are more fuzzy than ny DSLR.

Do I need to reload, and just leave them big?

YEAH! I'm finally all caught up! I had dropped out of sight soon after it started. First, because I felt left out when I couldn't get my computer volume to work so I could hear your video...... then second because I got too busy with Halloween work. I'm glad you didn't get too far ahead of me!

1) The video is absolutely adorable. Love the giggles! I'm so glad I finally got the audio working so I could hear. :goodvibes

2) So she had to tell them Dad gave her a surprise trip? And what are you, chopped liver? :lmao: Good thing Dad did all the packing and planning, right? :rotfl:

3) 58 minutes for the bus, huh? Man. We have only ever done DTD when we're there on a short trip with a car along. Never when we relied on Disney buses. Just when I was thinking this was an oversight...... you prove me wrong! We'll have to pass again this trip I think. I just read a thread on the theme parks board about someone else having big issues with the buses there.

4) Pool poo...... Hmmmm........ Just more justification for me to "forget" my suit again this trip! I probably won't share that story with Katie..... you know...... unless she begs too much on a day we don't have time. Note to self: Pack Baby Ruth bar for backup.

5) I'm SO glad you got to do the princess tea party. "Hail to the King........ Hail to the Queen....... Hail to the princess...... Aurora!". Katie and I still sing that song sometimes. :goodvibes We're done with that after doing it twice. Last year she was a little on the old side but wanted to go, so we did. She wasn't very happy that all the girls were REALLY young that day.

Out of curiousity.......... how old did the crowd seem when you were there?

6) YEAH on the senior portraits! I know the ones you took of Sam were beautiful!

7) Sorry about the oral surgery for poor Kadence. At least it's behind her now. :goodvibes

Thank:goodvibes We surprised her with the dress the night before, but I forgot to take pics.

Awesome...but I can't believe you stopped right there!. :lmao: I stopped for 2 reasons, one to leave ya hanging, and two, because photbucket had froze.;)

So how do you edit 200 pictures in one day. I can barely do 20 with out taking half a day.. I edited for 4 straight hours, I deleted about 50 of the pics cuz they were blah. I actually didn't have to edit about 30! I used the sun to make effects and didn't want to change what I'd done.

with photobucket, do you resize prior to loading? I do then load. I don't know much about it other than how to upload my resized photos. LOL! But I do know the quality goes down when you load them there. I set the photobucket settings to auto resize as they loaded. I'll not do that again! I'm kina over photobucket, thinking about finding a different site, Flicker maybe.

Great TR! I think we were there during the time you were. We have a great time and YES it was hot....I am personally thinking Dec next year for the next one!!

3) 58 minutes for the bus, huh? Man. We have only ever done DTD when we're there on a short trip with a car along. Never when we relied on Disney buses. Just when I was thinking this was an oversight...... you prove me wrong! We'll have to pass again this trip I think. I just read a thread on the theme parks board about someone else having big issues with the buses there.
This was our first experience with only taking buses. At POR we always took the boats and they ran like clockwork every 20 or 10 mins. If I stay at POP again, I'm thinking Taxi!

4) Pool poo...... Hmmmm........ Just more justification for me to "forget" my suit again this trip! I probably won't share that story with Katie..... you know...... unless she begs too much on a day we don't have time. Note to self: Pack Baby Ruth bar for backup.

I'm glad I didn't bring my suit!:eek: John did make a comment about Caddy Shack, but it didn't make IT any funnier:sad2:

5) I'm SO glad you got to do the princess tea party. "Hail to the King........ Hail to the Queen....... Hail to the princess...... Aurora!". Katie and I still sing that song sometimes. :goodvibes We're done with that after doing it twice. Last year she was a little on the old side but wanted to go, so we did. She wasn't very happy that all the girls were REALLY young that day.
Hail to the King....sign language....there was a helper chosen.......add it up!:rolleyes1

Out of curiousity.......... how old did the crowd seem when you were there? I would say Kadence was probably one of the oldest. We sat next to a Mom & daughter,, and the girl seemd maybe 3? Acted really young.

6) YEAH on the senior portraits! I know the ones you took of Sam were beautiful! Thanks, I got permission to show, and I'll post some tonight!

7) Sorry about the oral surgery for poor Kadence. At least it's behind her now. :goodvibes She healed fast, and had a hamburger by the end of the weekend! I hope that her other teeth fall into place now!

As adults we love WDW and get to be like kids but there is just something special seeing it through the eyes of kids. Tell her I love her "interviews" and to keep them coming.

Great photos you took!! Wish you were closer to us and I'd have you do some photos for our family!

We were seated at the first table inside the room and waiting for Kadence was her very own My Disney Princess Aurora doll.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00613.jpg

She was so excited to learn it was for her to keep.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00615.jpg

On our table was a place card, and it was for Princess Kadence, of the SweetPeas.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00617.jpg

Soon the girls were instructed to open their napkins and place them on their laps, and what fell out was a cute little bracelet with a pink little gem heart.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00619.jpg

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00620.jpg

Soon her “Tea” (apple juice) was set out, and of course pinky out was observed!

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00623.jpg

While all the other tables were be served, Rose Petal came over to our table and sat and chatted with Kadence.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00624.jpg

She asked where we were from, who her favorite princess was, and if she was enjoying herself. Kadence told Rose that this was a surprise from her Grandparents for her birthday and that the whole trip was a surprise. Rose thought that was just spectacular and was even more thrilled that we had a special page in the autograph book just for her (with roses the page)

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00625.jpg

She then asked me if it would be okay to ask Kadence if she would be her special helper later in the hour, I said yes and she let us know that she’d let us know when to have Kadence come up front.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00626.jpg

Our food and my tea had arrived during this time. Kadence’s plate consisted of Grapes, Blueberries, Raspberries, and Heart-shaped jelly and turkey& cheese finger sandwiches.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00627.jpg

My plate had the same fruits, along with some cheeses, crackers, egg salad, seafood salad, and I think chicken salad, but it wasn’t very good. Everything else was fine. I’m not a tea drinker, so I wasn’t too thrilled with my tea, so I shared Kadence apple juice.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00628.jpg

During this time, Rose Petal started telling her story. That she was once a beautiful rose in the garden of the King & Queen When Princess Aurora was born, the good fairies wanted to give her magical gifts - of beauty and song. In order to make the magic, they needed a petal from the most beautiful flower in the land. Miss Rose Petal willingly gave of herself, and was then magically transformed into a human.

She sang songs, danced and told the girls more of the story of Princess Aurora. Then told them of a way to speak using their hands, and asked Kadence to join her and show everyone how to use sign language to spell out “All Hail the King, All Hail the Queen, All Hail Princess Aurora”

YUM!! Rose walked around asking for song requests, and Kadence requested the song, “Part of your World from the Little Mermaid”.


Views from Kadence:

ME: What did you think of Rose Petal?

Kadence: She was AWESOME! She said that she felt special because we had a page for her in my book. I think that's why she picked me.

ME: Where you excited to be her helper?

Kadence: I was nervous. I didn't know the sign language. I glad she taught me first!

ME: Did you like the cake?

Kadence: No, but it was okay. I didn't like the cream. Strawberry was good!

She loves her doll. She has another doll the same size and they are now sisters and share the same bed!
It was wonderful she got picked! (ps. It happend a few more times on this trip!)

She was surprised to find the bracelet, and thought it was too nice and she wouldn't wear it around the parks so it wouldn't get lost;)

The doll is part of the Tea party package.( for $250, you get the Tea Party, the doll, the bracelet, then a certificate where the girls name ther doll, a scrapebook page.) It's waiting at the table for the girls.
All the dolls were Sleeping Beauty. If a boy attends the Tea, he get a Duffy bear.
There was one Grandpa looking man there, otherwise just Women & girls. My DH wishes now that he would have come so he could have video'd Kadence with Rose Petal.
I'd do it again, Kadence loved it!

Looks like you had a great time at the Tea Party! That's great that Kadence got picked to be the special Helper. That cake looked really yummy, too bad you didn't like the tea. Do you get to pick which tea?

We did! The cake in my opinion was good, but Kadence isn't a cake perseon so her review is a bit lopsided! No, I didn't get to pick the tea. I think it was a raspberry flavor, but I'm not a tea drinker. I would have rather had water.

Yay, I'm so excited to see the Aurora doll after hearing all about it when we met! :cool1:

Ok, if you click on "frame" you get all the differnet kinds of frames and you can adjust the thickness of the frame.
If you resize your photo smaller, the frames get wider or thicker as well.

I talked her into it! I'll put it at the end of my TR!

After cake, Rose Petal called all the girls came together to do the sign language song,

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00643.jpg

and without them noticing, Princess Aurora snuck in behind the girls.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00645.jpg

Soon, one girl noticed her

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00646.jpg

they were instructed on how to curtsey.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00647.jpg

She had all the girls parade around the room with her,

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00648.jpg

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00649.jpg

and when they all gathered in the center again, she and Kadence had a moment.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00653.jpg

They all returned to their seats to wait for Aurora to visit with each one of the tables. One of the CM’s came around and offered to take a picture with my camera of us

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00656.jpg

Kadence waiting patiently

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00658.jpg

Kadence waiting a little less patiently

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00660.jpg

Finally her turn! Kadence was given a pink rose.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00661.jpg

They chatted quite a bit and Aurora was pleased she had a special page to sign as well

Pretty Princesses!

A final hug

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00666.jpg

Mmmm, this flower smells lovely!

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00669.jpg

This is where Kadence looked at me and said “I like this!” She had the happiest smile on her face, I’m so happy I did this with her. I know she’s growing up way too fast, and this will be something special for me to remember and well as for her.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00670.jpg

Soon it was time for the Princess top say goodbye, and Rose Petal thanked the girls for a wonderful time.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00672.jpg

A final hug and thank-you for being the special helper

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00674.jpg

Soon it was time to parade around the lobby of the GF

And into the store to get your doll named, a certificate for the doll, and a scrapbook page.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00681.jpg

What did we do after that you ask?..............................

Well shop of course! We told her we would get her an outfit to go with her new doll, and she had a hard time trying to choose which she wanted.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00683.jpg

She finally picked Jasmine’s outfit.

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00685.jpg

(p.s.- Kadence doesn’t know it, but for Christmas she will be getting the Bell dress and Ariel outfit for her doll from Gramma and us. I have a special elf helping me with that!)

We also got her a new pair of shoes for her. The gold shoes had rubbed her foot raw, and the silly girl didn’t say a world until then because she was having such a good time! As we were checking out, Kadence asked if they could cut the string in her new shoes and they did. She replied thank-you and they told her to wait for a moment. That there was a phone call for her.
As she listened, it was Goofy wishing her a happy birthday!

http://i808.photobucket.com/albums/zz7/Carey_Kussmann-Andersen/Our%20Sept%202011%20Disney%20Trip/DSC00688.jpg


This was more pixie dust than I ever imagined!!


Views from Kadence:

ME: So, what was your favorite part of the Tea Party?

Kadence: All of it! Well, not the cake or the turkey sandwich.

ME: Were you surprised when Sleeping Beauty came out?

Kadence: She wanted to surprise us! She said she like my gown!

ME: What did you name your doll?

Kadence: Princess Rose, because of Rose Petal. Thanks for the Jasmine outfit, I wish I had Belle too.

ME: You'll have to keep wishing!

Kadence: I wish for a lot!

Aw, those tea party pictures are wonderful! So many good ones! My favorites are the look on her face when she finds the bracelet (haha!!) and when she was waiting not-so-patiently for Aurora.

That tea looks like a lot of fun. I was far too jaded of a child to have enjoyed it (I probably would have been like "where's Aurora, we're paying for Aurora, we're not going to get any time with Aurora" the whole time), but it looks so lovely and like such a great surprise for your daughter!

Also, it's funny that she would like the Belle dress too. Maybe she should wish upon a star.... :wizard:

I felt like I was right back there at the Tea Party and am so sad that I'll never do it again. :sad: You know.... we pushed the envelope last year so we're definitely done. :sad:

Has Kadence ever done the Alice Tea Party? Katie loved that one, but we're done there too. She had tons of fun there.

Tell Kadence next time she goes she should bring her cake home for me. It was AWESOME!

Has Kadence ever done the Alice Tea Party? Katie loved that one, but we're done there too. She had tons of fun there.!
No, but it's been a thought since I seen it in your TR. She'd feel pretty important to be sans parents! May have to start looking for Alice dress!

Tell Kadence next time she goes she should bring her cake home for me. It was AWESOME!
Deal! I liked it, but she's a weird kid. She's not a cake eater. Ice cream is a different story!

Soon, it was time for our Soarin fastpasses!

John sat this out, as he gets motion sick and hates to take any meds cuz they make him too drowsy.

Kadence loves Soarin and was happy that we got the do it before we had to leave Epcot for our 5:05 dinner ADR at the Whispering Canyon Café in the Wilderness Lodge. She wanted to do Test Track, but the wait times were too long.


Views from Kadence:

ME: What form of Disney transportation is your favorite?

Kadence: The boats from Port Orleans (POR)then the Monorail. I got a sticker from the monorail guy!

ME: What is your favorite things about Epcot?

Kadence: I love Soarin, Test Track and Crush. We couldn't do do Test Track, I was mad but didn't let you know it.

ME: Sorry, the wait times were crazy long and we had dinner resservations.

Kadence: We could have rode it if you wouldn't take so many pictures all the time.

I got her white dress at The Childrens Place earlier in the year. It has eyelet lace around the waist that matches the sandals she had on. I got lucky with a 30% off and and extra 10 with an online coupon! I do really love Childrens Place and Justice for her clothes, soooo cute.

I hope yall enjoyed your dinner at WCC! I've never been there but have heard such good things about it. Looking forward to the next update!

Great Epcot pics and I love Kadence's white dress :thumbsup2

Yay on her finally getting into Bruce's mouth - hope she didn't find it too scary! Also :rotfl2: at Kadence's comment of being able to ride Test Track if you hadn't taken so many pictures.

:rotfl: HA, that's pretty funny. Atleast she got to enjoy Soarin.

She's a funny one. She was so excited to be on soarin that she was really swinging her legs, I had to tell her to stop!

Well, for what it's worth, I think you should continue to take lots of pictures. :lmao:
The ones you got from the monorail are gorgeous. Do you use a DSLR? I'm considering a new camera, and using the DIS as part of my research if you don't mind sharing. :upsidedow

Thanks:goodvibes I love to take pictures and Yes, I do use a DSLR. I have a Sony a100. It does a good job for me. You should check out the Photography thread here. Lots O info!

CUTE dress Kadence! :thumbsup2

They did have it up during the day, but during the MNSSHP it was down. On my photos from out MK day, I just edited out the crane.
I get motion sick too, but I take the meds so I can ride the rides.
WWC is my next update, and it was a hit!

Thanks:goodvibes I'm not usually a see it a buy kind of shopper, but when I seen that dress I knew that she'd look so cute in it and it would be perfect for Disney!

She did kind pf bulk at the shark pic, but John's behind her ducking down so she's alone in the shot. I have another with him & her!

Kadence looks so sweet in her white dress and sunglasses and posing for your pictures. But, if you wouldn't have taken so many, you could have done more. :rotfl:

Aww, thank you:goodvibes She looks sweet and all, but there are somedays!:scared1:
She took photos too with her camera, I didn't complain then! :lmao:

There ya go there. Future Sleeping Beauty! :thumbsup2

Love it! :rotfl: But no you must take as many pictures as your camera will hold when it comes to disney! :goodvibes

She says that Sleeping Beauty would be the princess of choice for her.

I take many, many pics everywhere I go. Gotta make sure I got the good one!:thumbsup2

I would never have been able to keep it secret. What a wonderful wonderful surprise! I sure wish someone would wake me up for a super secret trip to WDW at 0330 or any other time for that matter.

It was hard to keep it for so long, but I was so happy we did. DH almost blew a couple times, but thank goodness she only half listens to us:lmao:

I'd get up at anytime to go to Disney!

I love it on both counts! :thumbsup2

That Tea Party looks like so much fun for a little girl! I wish I had a little girl to take to it...maybe I could borrow my niece for an afternoon. Kadence looks like she's having so much fun and her princess dress looks really pretty. :goodvibes

LOL, it's my fault for a lot of things! My older DD does roll her eyes at me, she runs from me too!
Thanks:goodvibes I love the dress and sandles, the second I saw them I had to have them!

I just hope she fits the dress next year! It's just too cute to only get a few months out of! I take so many pics, I don't think I'll ever get them all developed!

Hi All! Sorry for the lack of updates this week, I've been beyond busy here. Wed was my Birthday, and we had a blizzard:scared1:
The power went out at work and schools were called at 1:30. The next day I got to school the power was still out and we lost a heck of a lot of food:sad2:

Then Kadence had a Bowling B-day party with 10 of her friends from school at 3:30 to 5:30 ( CRAZINESS X 10) after that I drove and hour and a half to meet my sister from Illinois so she could give me 2 of her kiddos ages 3 & 5 to keep until Monday as she had a wedding to stand in, in Florida. I finally got home at 9:30pm and tried to get the kids to sleep (ugh, they had long naps from thier 4 hour car ride earlier:sad2:

I worked Friday, then cleaned house all day today as we are having a family party for Kadence on Sunday after noon. I'm so tired and still have food to perpare and kids to corral. I need a nap:rotfl2:

Kadence will be 8 on Monday, I don't know where the time is going. I promise an update on Tuesday, after all the craziness has gone.! And maybe a b-day pic or 2 as well! Have a Great weekend everyone!

Thank-You!

Well, our days, as blessed as we are, didn't go as well as I would have liked. We had an heavy snowstorm on my b-day and lost power at work and surrounding towns for 2 days.

Kadence had a wonderful b-day weekend and was spoiled greatly by one and all. Monday was her actual b-day and on the way to take out to a special dinner I hit a deer and my poor truck is looking pretty sad:guilty:We are all fine, so thats wonderful ,but still a bummer.

After I run to get estimates this after noon, I'll try to get my promised update up!
